    Rebounds were a big issue if you ask the fans that watched the whole season. You'd think they know better than me and you that catch games here and there.

    According to some I watch more Habs games than Sens. áTruth be told, I listen to 690 whenever there isn't hockey talk on 1200 and they talked about lack of scoring a lot more than rebound control.

    You can't beat 690 for the quantity and quality of guests.

    It's easy being right hindsight. What were people saying here when Condon was signed!

    I've been in favour of the move since it was made. That's how I know about the hate on HF. I was commenting in favour of the trade (and commenting on how stupid it is to suggest that sending a 5th rounder for a goalie that you need is poor asset mgmt).

    I don't actually think that. I just give you a hard time. I do, however, think that you love +/- and sometimes rely on cherry-picked stats to be your entire argument.

    SSF might ban me for this, but I'm a big fan of Overdrive. Noodles is a great hockey talking head. O'Neill is pretty funny, and Hayes is entertaining in his role as "ridiculous homer."

    There was never more reason to be positive about the Sens position than there is now, and WP chooses this time to start trying to tell people they were wrong about something that happened months ago. Let's talk about how great the team played last night, and how we need to DEEEEEESTROY Toronto tomorrow night.

    I wouldn't know. I do 100 percent of my sports radio listening in the car and I only get 690 and 1200. Otherwise it's entirely possible that I would ban you.

    I wouldn't call 690 a great source of information. They are out to lunch so freaking often. It's sensationalism radio at its worst.

    I don't love +/- but I don't think it's a useless start, either. If you only use it to compare players on the danger team I think it's pretty accurate.

    I don't rely on just stats, but sometimes that's all I have time for.
