My Habs are done :(

Well it was a pretty disappointing season for my Montreal Canadiens. I managed to see only one playoff game this year, as I set my alarm for 2am last Saturday night, but saw them go down 4-1 in the 2nd period before turning it off.

I am still here in Epinal, reason for me watching the NHL playoffs at 2am, and I should be for another week or two as things have been heating up lately for next year. I still am unsure where I will be lacing up my skates next season but one thing is for sure, it will be in France :)

Now we just have to wait and find out where???

Congrats to Ilpo!

I just wanted to send a big congrats to Ilpo Salmivirta who has recently signed with Rouen! What a huge accomplishment. Ilpo and I both started in Epinal 2 seasons ago and going through all the ups and downs with him here in France has be a pleasure. One of 5 roomates of mine last year, and not getting much sleep because he was rocking out to Iron Maiden on his guitar, I have to say the memories are all great. If there was one thing I would change, it would have him put his blueberry yogurt containers in the garbage and his spoon in the sink haha kidding.

On a more serious note, this is a great opportunity for a great player and I with Ilpo the best of luck!!!

Update with no updates

It's not because I don't care, I do! It is just that I have been waiting to write something that would really knock everybody's socks off, a big shocking blog post that everyone has been waiting for. Where will I be playing next season?

At this point that is still uncertain, there has not been as much activity as some may think, but I will not lie, there has been some talks with teams, including Epinal. Have other teams made offers? Perhaps. Have I signed a contract for next season yet? No.

Big getaway tomorrow as I will travel to Paris with my "chérie" and visit the sights that I last saw at the age of 12, when I was pulled away from my basketball tournament in Grade 8. Leaving the gym saying "sorry everyone, I HAVE to go to Paris with my parents."

I'm sure I will appreciate it much much more this time around!
