On Saturday, the Montreal Canadiens alumni strike team snuck into neighboring Rhode Island to visit an apparent member of their 5th column in North Smithfield. That’s right, Guy LaFleur, Yvan Cournoyer, Guy Lapointe and Rejean Houle were BEHIND OUR LINES in Bruins country this weekend.
How did they get in? Did someone leave poutine lying about? Did someone fail to lock the door?
Come on Vermont, YOU HAD ONE JOB.
This raises the question…
WHAT CAN WE DO TO STOP THESE INCURSIONS?
We could recite the Canadian national anthem ENTIRELY IN ENGLISH, like civilized provinces do. MWAH HAH HA HA HA!
Nah, that’s decidedly un-American
I believe we can charge them under 18 USC §§ 951 – Agents of a Foreign Hockey Team – and thus subject to fine or 10 years in the penalty box, but I don’t think we’ve had an extradition treaty with the Bell Centre since 2001.
Could we hire Gerry Cheevers & Brad Park to stop those pesky Habs?
Eh, that never worked back in the day, I doubt it will work now.
Maybe I’m onto something, though. Can we hire the Minnesota North Stars or perhaps the post-merger Islanders dynasty to chase these guys off? Can we teach New Hampshire to run the 1-3-1 trap?
Can we fix the problem at it’s source? Get rid of these traitors in our lands?
Add me to this list of Canadiens fans (childhood) from Woonsocket. As a kid, I had Canadiens posters all over my walls in my bedroom – Patrick Roy was my idol. What a job by these Habs greats to come to a great hockey area for the day! https://t.co/XPR8kjoHh0

Et tu, Brian Boucher?
I can’t even look at you anymore.
Perhaps we can start a re-education campaign… we can put billboards of Michel Therrien and Marc Bergevin on the highway, as a warning to any hockey fan who might be Hab-curious.
