EOTP on CJAD this afternoon, and other Habs links

OK, the wedding is out of the way. A fantastic weekend it was!!!

The honeymoon will be over the summer, so it’s back to business for yours truly at EOTP.

First matter of business, I will be joining Barry Morgan on CJAD‘s “The Habs Show” during their panel segment, just after the 6pm hour to discuss the Habs season and what to look forward to for the team.

On yesterday’s show, former Canadiens coach Jean Perron gave his opinions on what the team needs to do going forward.

The Habs have been out of the playoffs since Thursday night, but it seems that one Boston scribe is still taking his shots at Le Bleu, Blanc et Rouge.

The Boston Globe‘s Kevin Paul DuMont takes some digs at the”inglorious behavior ” in Game Seven of P.K. Subban and Roman Hamrlik.

“WWE has its place on the sports menu, and if Subban wants to take his talents there, the bet here is that he’ll be a humongous talent in that arena, too. But now would be a fine time for the rookie to choose whether he wants sport or spoof.

“Such stunts bring down everyone, including Subban’s teammates, his opponents, the officiating crew, the game itself. If he thinks it’s all a yuk, then why should anyone else, especially the paying customers, think differently?”

Personally I was not impressed by Hamrlik in Game Seven, but taking a shot at Subban is another same old, same old that we’ve heard all season. Perhaps DuMont, Don Cherry and the like need to join Tim Thomas, who stated Subban was a “travesty to the game,” and get a bulk deal when they wash their white robes and caps.

In the meantime, The Checking Line looks at the king of biased and classless hockey broadcasting, Jack Edwards. This guy is so bad, even the boys at Stanley Cup of Chowder don’t like him.

Since we’re on the topic of Boston radio idiots, here’s a pair who need no introduction. It starts just short of the 1:40 mark.
