Good Morning Addicts!
Sure, the argument over who's better - although phrasing the question, who is worse? seems to be more fitting in years of late - always continues through the offseason. However, normally during the off season there is an upcoming season to look forward to which fuels the debate.
With no end of this current lockout in sight, one might think that the two proud - rand sometimes arrogant, stubborn, delusional etc... - fanbases would put their differences aside until there is actually something to argue about.
I would like to clear up that I do not mean to call Ryan Szporer arrogant, stubborn or delusional. Those were just the words that came to me when I was thinking of a way to accurately describe a handful of Habs and Buds supporters.
With that said, Szporer put up a piece on The Bleacher Report explaining why The Canadiens will be a contender before the Leafs. It's a fun unbiased article that brings up some pretty good points.
After all is said and done, do you agree with the article or do you see the Leafs making a valid run for the cup before nos glorieux?
Habs And Hockey News
- Here is an open letter to hockey fans via The Hockey Writers.
- The two sides spent the weekend talking about smaller issues but failed to tackle the economic problems that are the core of the problem.
- Avi Goldberg, a professor at Vanier College provided All Habs Hockey Magazine with an interesting view on the NHL lockout.
- Krys Barch of the New Jersey Devils used Twitter to make a case for the NHL's lower paid players. While it may be well written, I find it hard to feel too bad for anybody making that much money. Sure his $750,000 annual salary is nowhere near the highest paid players income, but it still seems silly to compare himself to truck drivers, farmers and line workers.
