It Really Felt Like '93 - Montreal Canadiens Eulogy 2009-10

NHLThe Barilkosphere has produced a great eulogy for the Montreal Canadiens' 2009-10 season. This gem comes courtesy of Bloge Salming and Down Goes Brown.

Here are the lyrics so you can sing along at home:

I believed it was meant to be
And it felt a little bit like 93
With flailing hands we held them high
But then the Flyers came along and they made us cry
We used to talk about Stanley Cups
But now the conference finals is good enough
So if we just won a game in the second round
Then let's burn this city right to the ground

Here's a rap from the rubble of Montreal
Where we used to expect that we'd win it all
The cigars got lit and the champagne flowed
But I guess you could say that was a long time ago

These days the forum ghosts have got pretty quiet
So when we win a round then it's time to riot
I thought we used to brag about 24?
Guess it don't take as much to impress us anymore

"Because we were the eight seed, that's the reason."
Well, yeah, because we sucked for most of the season
From October through March it was losing streaks
But then we got hot for three whole weeks.

Now we're all in love with Jaroslav Halak
Going to pay big dollars now to bring him back
But you're a Hab for life, bro, we got your back
Of course we said the same thing to Georges Laraque

You have one bad game and when you leave the ice
You're going to hear us chanting loud for Carey Price
But don't blame us it's just how we roll
We can be a little tough on the guys in goal

We might be hard to please but now we're rubbin'
One or two out to PK Subban
We know that his defence can be pretty bad
But he's still the best prospect we've ever had

You see we don't draft guys who can help win games
But we do draft guys who have got french names
And that's why this year will always make us smile
Cause we're not getting this close again for a while.

I believed it was meant to be
But instead we got sent home in round three
Our flailing hands are held up high
While the cop sprays pepper spray in our eyes
We used to talk about Stanley Cups
But now the conference finals is good enough
So if we just won a game in the second round
Then let's burn this city right to the ground

So here's a little shout out from around the league
From the fans out there of the other teams
Let's raise a glass and send up a call
And make sure they can hear us out in Montreal

This is for the Habs fans with the attitude
For the guys getting drunk and acting rude
For the US anthems that you booed
For the tiny little hot dogs you call food

For the fans who act like they think they're better
For making our school kids read The Sweater
For the pomp and the hype and the made up curses
For the punched out linesmen and the stolen purses

For the nightly pre-game banner raisings
For the nightly post-game frat boy tasings
For the loudmouth fans and their ole oles
For the loser rubbing shoe polish on his face

For the centennial and for your barber poles
For your ghosts and your luck and your waived off goals
For the dives and the faking that made us sick
For Too Many Men, and for McSorley's stick

For the non-stop talk about 24
For the knowledge that you're never going to win one more
For the broken windows and the burnt out cabs
Shout it one more time y'all, [bleep] the Habs

I believed it was meant to be
But our forwards look a little like five-foot-three
So let's find some old guy
And raise another number up to the sky
We used to talk about Stanley Cups
But now the conference finals is good enough
So if we just won a game in the second round
Then let's burn this city right to the ground

I believed it was meant to be
But instead we got a Puck Daddy eulogy
So let's watch the police helicopter in the sky
And party on the streets and try not to die.
We used to talk about Stanley Cups
But now the conference finals is good enough
So if we just won a game in the second round
Then let's burn this city right to the ground

That was not a good game. Habs should have won. They had chances. No good.

Typical LAFF fans comments!

I don’t know how many real hockey fans; even gave the HABS a chance at beating Washington . . . I DID! . . . let alone beat Pittsburgh . . . I DIDN’T!

However I get to applaud my HABS for providing me with some incredible excitement. Especially the game 7 win against WAS!

Maybe one year before I pass on, the Leafs and the HABS will actually play for the Conference Championship and then one set of FANS will be able to brag about it until the end of time! LOL!

Bonne Chance HABS!

The Canadiens' name has been etched so many times into the Stanley Cup that the trophy has been whittled down to the size of an ash tray. Pepper Sprays

you leaf fans are pathetic.
losers since 67, take it like a man, you gang of fagets.
you guys rap, like you play hockey.
nothing more than a wanna be hockey team.
phaneuf plays like shit, and thats why hes ur captain you little bitch.
you want to say crap about the habs.
we won the 24 cups, and had the best players for how many years, check the stats.
cuz next time youll go watch a match look up and count the names that you dont have with tears.
so ole ole i will sing, leafs will be losers until i cant breath here in montreal dear.
you bring this crap on the table, that you did in dead.
but ill put ur head in your ass, and make you smell this shit for free.
cuz what you spit is giberish,
not fuck all about toronto fans, and your gay franchise, you dick.
so next time you think about the habs.
think of the BLEU, BLANC, ROUGE or the OLE OLE
but it still wont give you a great 24 winning stanley cup team you whinny discusting toronto leaf fan shit !

dude this rap wasnt bad at all, but your right, this guy who wrote this is fuckin lame bastard. like what kind of team that hasnt smell the plays off for years, has the guts to say fuck a team who won so much cups. leafs have a rich history, no you mean the fans are loyal, but the team itself sucks big time, and for years they had trouble getting back on the right track.
seriously you leaf fans are thick headed. starting talking shit about the habs, when your teams gets better okay!


GO HABS GO
