My soapbox to proclaim on hockey, football, politics, life. Spotlighted will be the Montreal Canadiens, and the San Diego Chargers, at least until the Vancouver GlassSmashers' inaugural NFL season.

Busy Hice, it's full câlice!
The Canadiens will have 64 players split into three squads for their three day camp at the practice facility in Brossard, Quebec. Sixty four. That's a lot of jaded veterans and starry-eyed rookies in close quarters, and much potential for clashes and collisions.
Team C has two interesting lines. Maybe the coaching staff has been reading the line combinations Canadiens fans have been posting on forums since June. These two posted below have been fairly unanimous among Canadiens fans. And I thought it was pointless…
David Desharnais – Lars Eller – Andrei Kostitsyn Travis Moen – Andreas Engqvist – Ryan White
This one has a nice look to it, might be ready in 2-3 years time, although Mathieu might have retired by then. It would be great if a bigger winger like Alain Berger or Steve Quailer was on left wing.
Mathieu Darche – Michael Bournival – Brendan Gallagher
Every team has a slew of rookies who look great and bottomless hope for this season and beyond, but objectively, the Canadiens are entitled to more of both. Indubitably.
