Get out and vote!

Hi all, just a quick note this Sunday that I have been included in some sort of popularity contest among bloggers by the web site theNHLarena.com. They are asking readers to vote for their nine favourite Habs blogs.

As of this writing, I am sitting in a tie for second place with a whopping six votes, three back of the all-encompassing All Habs , and tied with Dennis-Kane.com and The H Does Not Stand For Habs.

Should you feel so inclined, you can vote here, and it will also give those of you who don't follow some of the other excellent Habs bloggers out there a chance to discover them. I highly suggest you do.

That's it for today, but I'm working on a piece for CP on Vladislav Tretiak, who I had a chance to interview after Saturday night's game. The Russian Olympic GM had a lot of interesting things to say about the Games, the relationship between the NHL and the KHL, as well as Montreal's own Andrei Markov.

He had supper with Markov before Saturday's game, just to make sure he knew that the Russian team was relying on him to play. That's quite a message, but it's made even more serious when it comes from a Hall of Famer, a living legend in your home country, a man who still looms larger than life.

No pressure, though.

How could you dismiss the obnoxious, juvenile, over-sexed bias of the Four Hab Fans?

I did vote your way. Did find one blog, the Fans in NYC, I don't read.

Good luck

I was just listing the standings at the time I wrote the post. I would never dismiss Four Habs Fans, I check it regularly. I will actually get a blog roll up on this site one of these days.
