yes, I heard his talk as well.

Cookie is also my most favourite guy after Linden, he showed so much character every time he is on the ice.

You think Cloutier will be with us next year? The arbitration could give him as big as 4 million. And what about Mo, I think he will go to arbitration as well, right?

It's nice to see Allen being matured this year though.

Life is so dull without hockey, and when all the people around you just talk about soccer in Hong Kong.

I really don't expect I can find a Canucks fan in a Muse forum

Yeah I love Linden too. He's Mr. Canuck. That's all there is to it..hehe.

Well I'd be really surprised if Cloutz wasn't with us next year. We put so much effort and hope into the guy, and now that he's finally coming around, I can't see us letting him go that easily you know? I'm sure Crow will fight for him..hehe..I saw Mo being interviewed for a little bit tonight, and he's already said he wants to stay and that he won't be that expensive..heh. I don't think our guys are the type who are hungry for some huge pay raise. They just want to be paid what they're worth. I definitely think Cookie should get a much bigger contract, but he still has a year to go on that ghetto salary.

Allen's been so awesome. I wish they played him more during the series, but I'm guessing Crawford wanted to ease him back in after his injury. I was so happy to see him play, I remember at one point, he was just taking like 3 guys at once. It was great

Oh man. I definitely know what you mean. I've become a Canuckle nut over the last year..hehe. I only have a couple of friends who are into hockey so I'm usually a nut with my dad and bro All I've been doing since I finished school, is watch hockey. My friends think I'm crazy. I swear hockey's the best sport ever.

So how often do you get to watch hockey in HK? I'm guessing it's not very popular over there?

Yeah, I didn't really expect to find any hockey fans here either! But I did

I just want a Canadian team to win the Cup. It's time to bring the Cup back to where it really belongs. We invented the damn game and bred the great one! It would be too awesome if the Habs won. That's what I'm really hoping for now

Thanks, i'll know next time i go back. And anyway, through exchange rates, even the cds in hmv are a bargain for me. easily spend $1000 in there. almost did last time... whoops.

And hello to life must hate me, revision not going well then??

All the cool sino shops were shut down last time i was in hongkong late last year, there's still a couple hidden in TST, worth a look

HMV is a global daylight robbery, i usually go into HMV and virgin to listen to the CDs and buy them somewhere else. but who doesn't anyway? :P

I do that in the uk, but in HK, its just SO much cheaper. what i'd really like is to be able to get japanese imports on english bands when i'm in hong kong. cos a few yrs back i managed to pick up the jap imports of the plug in baby ep and the random 1-8 cds when i was over there.

Not very often that I get to watch ice hocey in Hong Kong. I know Cable TV has a NHL hockey channel, but I need to pay an outrageous HK$299 for a month. Plus I don't think they will broadcast that many of Canucks games. However, I am able to see all the 7 playoff games, as my friend did me a big favor by recording the games and then sent them to me over internet. So, what I saw was actually Hockey Night in Canada. And I know how disturbing Greg Millen was.

The sport news here even have baseball, but not hockey, too bad
No one gives a damn to it actually. I guess it is a sport for colder places.

yeah they used to have this shop in Mong Kok (shopping centre near the train station) selling all the Japanese singles (yeah even random 1-8!) which made me so excited. i didn't get any tho, i have the french boxset so i thought i may not spend the money to get doubles of the singles i got

but one thing that HK HMV doing very well is magazines. it's so quick to get british mags there (probably less than a week later than when they come out in UK, which is good when muse is on), and cheap as well (not even twice as what you guys pay). while in oz now you can still find 3 month old NMEs on the shelves at 3-4 times of what you guys pay.

Hehe thats the shop I got my japanese singles from. But its not there anymore, i went and looked.

I agree with the magazines though, you ca get magazines from all over the world there, but i did think they were over priced considering i could be getting someone to buy them for me at half the price.

Wow, that's crazy! Highway robbery! heh. So do you get baseball and soccer games for free? That's awesome that you got to watch the series like that You should get your friend to do that during the regular season too I just couldn't stand how all the commentators are praising iginla, it's absolutley retarded. He's a totally cheap ass player.

I find baseball kinda dry. It's alright to watch, but hockey's so much better! hehe. Well I don't get why Americans don't watch hockey. It's just stupid that Colin Campbell's pretty much doing everything he can to get higher US ratings. How can anyone not love this sport?!?

You should get your friend to tape the Detroit series. They better bring Calgary down! It's so frustrating when you watch the inconsistencies in reffing for hockey, it's absolutely ridiculous. I swear all the refs have been paid off by the F-lames

Oh well, at least the Avs are going down..muwahhaha.

Hmmm yeah how did you guess?

wow... I feel so sad.... The only time I got to go to HK was when I was a few months old... I haven't been since, though my familt that lives there is always sending me loads of stuff. I have to say the CD's form over there are well cheap!

By the way how much was Random 1-8? Selectadisk here did have it but it was about 23!

I got it for a bit under HK$100, so 7 ish?

Cds, Vcds and Dvds over there are just SO cheap compared to the rest of the world though! I love the shopping, but the cheapness just means i buy so much more.

besides the playoff, I can now catch up with the Worlds. Matt Cooke scored in Canada's opener against Austria.

So, did Mo play for the first line center?

Go Canada Go !!
