Shots on Net [09.08.10]

Because some news piled up.

Dustin Boyd will be wearing number 17 with the Habs next season. Catch him in a nice new jersey in a pic snapped by @CandiensMTL. <Canadiens>

Michael Cammalleri's back at his university and has been training there. Follow him on Twitter for more updates. <@MCammalleri13>

This past Saturday Yvon Lambert was at 2010 Tonik Tournament, hosted by Bruno Gervais and Max Talbot. Click the link for a nice pic of Monsieur Lambert. <25 Stanley>

Guy Lafleur is having a golf tournament tomorrow and there will be a silent auction as well. I can't find any info about this other than this tweet, so good luck searching. <@ALCCINC>

Speaking of golf tournaments, Mr. Lafleur will also be at two more. On August 18, he will be the president of honour at the 15th edition of the Desjardins Securities Leucan Estrie Golf Tournament. On August 26, he'll be the chairperson at the 16th annual Hector "Toe" Blake Golf Tournament. The Canadiens are one of the sponsors of this tournament. Be sure to check out the gallery for some great photos.

Finally, a strange thing I ran across while reading about a fishing trip the NY Islanders training camp attendees took. It's Mark Sterit in a Habs uniform! Anything with a Habs logo is bound to catch my eye. I liked seeing it. The Habs would probably never do this with their players, as no doubt comparisons (to the past level of play) will be drawn up. He's another one of those guys who was around when I first became a fan. Credit to the Islanders, of course.


In the last SoN what I wanted to write was that we should make signs that say 'Owners of 8th place'. Or maybe '8th place or better'. Really, could we aim to do any better guys? I know it's tough, but you were the best once (2008, you anomalous year) so can we make it happen again? We're banning injuries, inconsistent play (to be consistently good, not bad), and bad luck charms. Let's get elusive number 25!
