Habs video clips and autograph news

With all the Game Three activities, you may have missed a couple video clips along the way.

I’ll lead off with HNIC’s After Forty Minutes, that featured the great Dick Irvin.

Why they needed Don Cherry to eat up part of the segment is beyond me, as is the passing back and forth of the mic between him and Ron MacLean. Audio seems a bit weak off this YouTube clip, but just filter out the two bookends and enjoy the words of Mr. Irvin.

Habs Fans Unite!: From Tuesday pre-game, CTV’s Aphrodite Salas looks at Habs mania in downtown Montreal. It includes a chat with Annakin Slayd, who created “Feel’s Like ‘93.

Did you miss the OHL Final? : Incase you did, here’s a recap of the Windsor Spitfires four-game sweep of the Barrie Colts.

First is a pair of private signings, with Habs legends Patrick Roy and Jean Beliveau, courtesy of AJ Sportsworld. Prices start at $49 for Mr. Beliveau and $109 for St. Patrick. The deadline for these signings is May 22.

Toronto-based Frozen Pond has arranged a private signing with former Habs coach Pat Burns in early July. For more information, you can click on this link. Deadline is June

Vintage Burns with the Habs…

Here’s what he was pissed off about, in more detail. Nice how the Leafs coverage shows the light cross check from Savard on Clark, but the how Savard wound up in a heap in the corner was kept out.

For those in the Toronto area on May 15, a trio of Habs greats will be signing in Vaughan.

Guy Larose, Don Marshall and Ralph Backstrom will be appearing at Dave and Buster’s, courtesy of Saturday Night Heroes. Prices are $20 for basic items and $30 for premium per player. A great deal considering there’s 16 Stanley Cups between them!

If fans have a lead on other Habs signings or appearances, let me know with an email and I will spread the word.
