And Because I Can't Resist...

Normally I wouldn't take quite so much pleasure in this, but because of the rash of mockery-laden emails I receive every time a Canadian team beats the Lightning, I'm making an exception. The Montreal Canadiens are in Tampa right now to play the Bolts. Apparently they got in some time early yesterday. And a couple of players allowed themselves enough time to start a ruckus.

A Montreal Canadiens player was arrested and charged with felony grand theft for — wait for it! — stealing a woman's purse at a night club!

I don't know what goes on in the City of Saints, but come on, purse-snatching? Really?!

TAMPA, Fla. — Ryan O'Byrne and Tom Kostopoulos joined their Montreal teammates for practice Monday, hours after being arrested outside a Tampa nightclub.

Police said O'Byrne, a 23-year-old rookie, was accused of stealing a woman's purse. Right wing Kostopoulos, 29, was charged with resisting an officer.

O'Byrne was charged with felony grand theft and released after posting $2,000 bail. Kostopoulos faces a misdemeanor count of resisting an officer without violence and was freed on $500 bail.

"You wish these things didn't happen, but once things happen, trying to go backwards isn't a possibility, so we move ahead," Canadiens general manager Bob Gainey said after practice at the St. Pete Times Forum, where Montreal faces the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday.

I really want to hear the story behind this because you know it's a good one.

And for the record, my Bolts have won three of the last four games against Canadian clubs. (I'm trying to block out the 8-4 loss to Ottawa.)

Sens Logo For Your Cap

Back in August I first posted images of the Ottawa Senators' new logos. And everybody was hoping they'd be making the new 2D logo the primary. But the team went the other way and said the 2D logo would only make appearances on fan memorabilia.

But I had yet to see any of it until I got an email this afternoon.

Check out this hat.

No one can deny this is the superior logo. Much more balanced than the "3D" version currently donning the Sens' sweaters.

Now you want to laugh? Seems they've also put together a special edition St. Patrick's Day cap. I'm not making this up.

Plaid accents?! Sign me up!

Anyway, sometimes I find real items make for a better post than concept art, you know? You can't make this stuff up. So I'd like to hear from actual Ottawa fans. How do you guys feel about the new logos? Have you got a beef? Or nothing really to complain about here? Comment!
