Habs fans are the dumbest on the planet

Montreal Canadiens fans.

A phrase synonymous with crazy, idiotic, moronic....well, the list goes out.

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara drove Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty into the turnbuckle near the benches the other night, leaving Pacioretty with a severe concussion and a fractured vertebra.

Based on Chara's history there was likely no malice involved but that hasn't stopped crazy Canadiens fans from wishing death upon his family, friends and teammates. A perfectly non-insane reaction.

Hey, we agree. It sucks that Pacioretty got hurt. But really... you want Chara's kids to die in a fire? What kind of people are you? This is why no one respects Montreal. You're all bat poop crazy. But hey, thanks for helping Canada keep America's head warm.

Montreal is a city so stupid they use a soccer chant at hockey games. Oleee! Ole-ole-o -shut up. We get it. You want to be European, but you're too lame even for that.

This is a city that has set previous standards for stupidity. This is a city that has tipped cars.

..and set fires after a first round playoff victory.

Not a championship. A first round victory. Awesome guys. You stay classy, Montreal.

So it really shouldn't be a surprise that this classless, idiotic city again set the standard for stupidity.

Montreal cops were flooded with calls Tuesday night. Was there a shooting? A bank robbery? A suspicious character in a van dressed like a clown trying to lure children into a windowless van?

Nope. Montreal fans were calling the cops.... because they wanted the cops to arrest Chara and press charges.

No, seriously. We're not making it up.

Citizens of this fine city actually called the cops over something that happened in a hockey game.

Look, it sucks that Paciorettys injury was so severe. We hope he makes a full recovery and is able to resume his NHL career. We really do.

But Montrealers are really that dumb? What do you want? Do you want Chara chained up or something for making a hockey play?

The hit was very, very, VERY unfortunate. We dont deny that. Maybe Chara should have shown more awareness. Maybe emotion got the best of him. He is the only one that knows. But you people act like he tore down your city and should be executed.

It is not like Chara sat around and plotted the demise of Max Pacioretty. There were no grand plans to end a season and possibly a career.

Where was the outrage in Canada when Savard went down? Canadiens fans, classy as they are, openly mocked the Bruins and their fans. They laughed at Savard.

Where was the outrage when Pacioretty drove Mark Eatons head into the boards? Yes, the end result wasnt the same but the sentiment was. If Chara hits Pacioretty anywhere else on the ice, were looking at a simple interference call.

But you keep making death threats to Bruins bloggers and writers, Montreal. Keep Tweeting about how you hope Charas family dies or Tweeting about how you hope the Bruins plane blows up. Our opinion of you couldnt possibly be any lower.

Youre awful, awful people.

Halftime stars, studs and duds: Rose looking like his old self

Halftime stars, studs and duds: Rose looking like his old self

BOSTON – The New York Knicks have been in a massive funk of late, something the Boston Celtics had to know which, not surprisingly, would result in them playing with a heightened level of desperation.

That desperation left the Celtics a bit exasperated at the half which ended with a 10-2 run by New York that put them ahead 63-54 at the half.

After falling behind by as many as nine points in the second quarter, the Celtics rallied to within a single point (53-52) following a basket by Isaiah Thomas.

The second quarter was all-New York afterwards.

It was just a one-possession game (Boston led 34-31) for the Celtics going into the second quarter, which was exactly where Boston didn’t want to be against a Knicks team whose bench ranks among the NBA’s highest-scoring second units recently. In their last three games, the Knicks’ bench has averaged 43.0 points per game which according to hoopsstats.com, ranks sixth in the NBA during that span.

At the half, they had 33 points compared to just 12 for Boston’s backups.

Boston fell behind early 9-5, but the Celtics rallied following a time-out with a 15-4 run capped off by a 3-pointer from Isaiah Thomas.

The Celtics’ lead peaked at nine points on separate occasions in the first, but the Knicks closed out the first with a 12-6 spurt that cut Boston’s lead to 34-31 at the end of the first.

Here are the Stars, Studs and Duds from the first half.

 

STARS

Derrick Rose

The former league MVP looked like his old self tonight instead of just old. He led the Knicks with 14 points on 7-for-11 shooting.

Isaiah Thomas

The Knicks had great success inside the paint against all the Celtics minus Thomas who did much of his dirty work offensively on drives to the basket. At the half he had 19 points on 8-for-10 shooting.

 

STUDS

Willy Hernangomez

Boston had problems rebounding the ball, and Hernangomez was the main reason why. At the half he had 10 points and six rebounds, three of which were offensive boards.

Jae Crowder

Dealing with Carmelo Anthony is enough to keep Crowder busy tonight. But he’s doing that at a high level in addition to providing a nice punch offensively with 14 points.

Mindaugas Kuzminskas

You may not know his name, but his game was pretty impressive in the first half. At the half, he had nine points.

 

DUDS

Al Horford

We’ve seen him air-ball a 3-pointer, miss a lay-up and strguggle to get any shots to go down tonight. At the half, he had three points while missing nine of his 10 shot attempts.
