We updated the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League rosters this morn.
Even the NHL agrees the hit was not worthy of punishment beyond the game penalty he received. This isn't even in the same league as the Bertuzzi incident.
These police, IMHO, see an opportunity for them to be on national and american television and are whoring themselves out for their 15 minutes of fame.
I also had a recent incident with the provincial Quebec police. They drove and flew down from Montreal to serve me a warrant for the servers at my business address. What a fkn waste of my tax money. Just another reason why ur Canadian taxes are too high.
Let's talk about the waste. The warrant was for data on servers at my business address. Any idiot with a brain could've figured out that my business address was a fkn mailbox. So the subpoena was for servers I store in my fkn mailbox. Trust me, I laugh about this almost daily. Do you need a high school education to join the police force?
After driving down from Montreal to find out that I don't actually store servers in my mailbox, they contacted the local police to find my home address. That must've been embarrassing and they pulled in the local police to waste their fkn time too. WOOT! Hear ur taxes flushing down the toilet.
They knocked at my door and asked "politely" if they could talk, or else, they would get a subpoena for my house. Hehe! Should called them on it. Made them drive back to Montreal for the subpoena for my house. And when they returned, I could'a told 'em I don't host any servers in my house either. Try a little detective work b4 u waste my tax money further. A simple whois query could saved them a lot of time and our money.
I gave them what they wanted. I didn't want them wasting anymore of my tax money. They don't think they have enough evidence to proceed. Convenient waste. Thanks!
So why r they doing this? Because it involves Sidney Crosby and they might get their picture in the paper. Meanwhile, some real crime is taking place in Montreal and the cops are too busy to respond. Thanks!
We live in a fkd up world. Chara pushed a guy at a bad time into a badly misplaced hard spot. Some cops are gonna take advantage of this and get their name on TV and in the paper. The fkd up part isn't the incident, its the attention whores taking advantage of it.
I don't know exactly who this person is, but they've been posting ridiculous crap on Talk-Sports and other websites since August of this year. All that I know is that they are from Montreal, Quebec as indicated by their IP address. They think that Marketa, Sidney Crosby and myself are part of a big conspiracy to place hook files on people's computers. And supposedly the police are helping us cover it up.
Latest rant about the hookfile. They figure if they use big words and technical terms that they'll seem intelligent. This person is severely paranoid.

Andrei Markov, Maxim Lapierre, Michael Cammalleri, Hal Gill and Brian Gionta are in a fashion magazine called Elle Quebec.
It's too bad that the media simply reports the lies coming from the NHL about the Coyotes. It wouldn't take much courage to sit there and being laughing at them. Sure the NHL would black-balled you, but you represent integrity. When they report stuff like this, then you should laugh.
Weeks ago, the NHL reported they were not in control of the Coyotes. When the Coyotes declared bankruptcy, the NHL changed their mind and claimed they had taken control of the team from the owners. A month later, the courts disagreed as the NHL couldn't produce the documents they claimed to have.
Then the NHL claimed they controlled the rights to a second southern Ontario team and that this had nothing to do with the Sabres or the Leafs. Yet how many teams have moved in the last 10-20 years? Hartford? Winnipeg? Quebec? Dallas? How many times have we heard rumors of southern U.S. teams moving to Kansas City? Why was it made public that the Leafs would allow a 2nd Toronto team solely if they paid rent at the ACC? Why did some U.S. politicians petition the courts with concerns about the Sabres franchise?
Everybody knows it's just the NHL being the NHL again. Just as they did with Nashville (which is still in trouble). The Trashers are still in trouble. The Leafs gave $millions to the Lightning late (also in trouble) in the season and Bettman didn't seem to have any problem with that blatant circumvention of the NHL rules.
Why does the NHLPA put up with the NHL protecting broken teams at the expense of their revenue share?
I know why! Too many chickens. Nobody with the guts to stand up to Bettman, the Leafs and the Sabres. What we need is someone with the balls to do it. Like Balsillie. He's the solution to the current NHL problem. Let's support him. And let's stand up to the NHL and tell them that we want a team in Hamilton. Let's stand up to the Leafs. Let's stand up to the Sabres.
Red Bull Crashed Ice in Quebec City is one event that is on my Bucket List. No, I don't want to skate, but I do want to be in the crowd someday. This years event is January 27th. Already have plans. Maybe next year.
Play the game online.
CP: Anouk Leblanc-Boucher of Prevost, Que., avoided an illegal move by a Chinese skater to capture a bronze medal in the women's 500-metre short-track speedskating event at the Winter Olympics on Wednesday.
Randy: Anouk's medal may get bumped to a silver and Kalyna Roberge of Quebec City to a bronze, as it appears the silver medalist lifted her skate at the finish line, which should be a disqualification.
Slots for Mario is having a rally immediately before the Saturday (Feb 4) night Pens game. BTW, I personally don't think the Pens need a gambling license. The Pens' ownership is, of course, hinting that no slots means the Pens are gonna move. Hopefully to Winnipeg or Quebec. Personally, I think it's despicable when businesses hold axes over politician's heads in order to get public money.
I don't think much defines the history of hockey like Dale Hawerchuk and the Winnipeg Jets. Non-hockey fans and some hocket fans will say who and what?
Dave was the other forward on the Canada Cup line with Gretzy and Lemieux and was likely the 3rd best player of his time (that'll get your name forgotten). A quebec band called Les Dale Hawerchuk have released a song called Dale Hawerchuk.
The Jets are now the Phoenix Coyotes and the CBC has created a documentary on the Winnipeg Jets called Death by Popcorn. Although NHL hockey is no longer played in Winnipeg, the dream lives on.
