I'm switching over to Bell Fibe when I get the chance.

The Barrie channel showed Leafs games probably right up to the 2004-05 lockout. So did the Hamilton CH, and in the 90s/early noughties so did CFMT. That's about the time Sportsnet regionalized and started buying parts of the Leafs' local package, and now only them TSN and LeafsTV show the games.

As for Habs games, I don't even think we can get them FTA anymore. The local Radio-Canada channel showed them up to a decade ago, then that was it.

I don't mind Bowen, but apparently he just got fired so maybe I'm kinda dumb.

CHEX, the Peterborough CBC station that I tried my arse off trying to find on Rogers last night but couldn't for the life of me.

Funny thing about CHEX, back in the 70s and 80s they would air the Habs games on HNIC despite being located only 140 kms from Toronto. Kinda showed just how bad the team was back then. Wonder what they do these days...

You mean tried to sign him at the cost of a first and third round pick, which would've been followed by him being claimed off waivers by another team.

Just in case you forgot :)

So we're gonna get a video explanation when it happens? Great.

Let's take a look at this year's RFA list:

Ryan O'Reilly
PK Subban
Braydon Schenn

Oh yeah, I can see that 2015 first overall pick moving somewhere this summer...

Ah, I see.

Montreal in 6 or 5 if Tampa doesn't get a healthy Bishop back.

Whoever flagged comment 27 get a life.

The only time the Habs beat the Lightning in 4 games this season was in Tampa.

They did a lot less of that as the game went on. I agree wholeheartedly with the comments about their defence, but their forwards are as green as it gets when it comes to playoff hockey. Heck, last season's Leafs had more playoff experience than Tampa's forwards.

Some guys on Montreal were also a lot more intense than I expected. Vanek wanted to kill, maim, destroy and torch everyone and everything every time he was out there.

The Leafs are actually on a deal with a local furniture supplier to pay a flat annual fee for desk replacement. Leiweke alone has already smashed 4 and he's only been here for a year.

They still lose that game, and the series, if Bishop is healthy. Lindback looks like a worse Rebound Machine Reimer, with matching glove work.

I want to. I really, really want to.

But anybody blaming him for the 4-on-14 is high. And he saved their hides about 8 times in OT while they skated around trying to pull their heads out of it.

It's called "Leaf Hockey".

And whenever i'm in the area (tell them to import it, already).

Salo, Carle, Brewer...not these guys' first time at the rodeo.

Montreal outplayed the hell outta them for 59 minutes of regular time. Tampa looked more threatening during OT. Both teams got lucky while they were being outplayed, Montreal when it mattered most.

Stamkos is an elite player. He's 100% on his game 99.9% of the time. If [i]that[/i] was the plan to shut him down, then the Habs had better send someone to bash in Ben Bishop's knees because they're going to need Lindback's terrible goaltending to win this series.

The Lightning woke up in OT. And if we're blaming Carey Price for the Habs' defence showing just how easy to get by they are, I'm sending a memo to every youth hockey goalie to switch positions.

More of a craft beer man myself, but you could do worse than MGD.

I was barely alive by the OT goal in Habs-Lightning. But it sounds like the Ducks might be ripe for the pickin...
