  1. Past hour
  2. TSN690 guys put that under a microscope to try and figure out if CJ was signalling there would be changes but didn't want to tip off the Pens ... or had no changes planned but was messing with the Pens ... or really hadn't made up his mind. There is always the possibility that someone may be unable to play and force a change. EDIT: Mentioned last game that Gallagher left briefly ... this from Eric Engels
  3. Today
  4. If there are no fans, I think NHL support is the only way it can work. Teams may be able to offer streaming subscriptions but it won't cover the lost ticket revenue.
  5. Also Leafs Game 3 is Thursday at 8:00 pm and Game 4 is Friday at TBD The Leafs Game 4 is very likely to be Friday at 8:00 pm, cause I don't think they will want teams on a B2B with an afternoon game after a night game. (In fact this is even prohibited in the CBA. You can't have an afternoon start off a B2B if the first game is a night game).
  6. There are no seeding games on Friday. They do seeding games 2 days on, and 1 day off. The seeding games never have to go back 2 back (they only have 3 games instead of a possible 5 as well). It also ensures the NHL will have games on every day, even if all the other series had ended in 3 or 4 games.
  7. You missed the “tune in at the same bat time on the same bat channel” at the end😏
  8. Fair enough ... for myself and everyone who initiated and then responded to the digression
  9. Interesting ... thought they were focusing on having the seeding round-robin games for the afternoons, in part because the regular season O/T format provides more confidence for the next game to be close to on time. Guess 4 and 5 being back-to-back they want to give a bit more time between games?
  10. They ***MAY*** have to look at any and all means to reduce operating expenses ... for example ... reduced schedule, an even heavier "local" focus on scheduling and maybe even shuttering (for the one season) the more remote/isolated teams (i.e., Manitoba Moose, Colorado Eagles, San Antonio Rampage and Texas Stars) to reduce travel costs ... and then seek support, beyond salaries, from the NHL (i.e., the league and teams collectively) ... the NHL BoG would have to decide how important it is to have the AHL playing is for the NHL clubs.
  11. Julien is holding his cards close to his chest.
  12. Burrito, hell. You must be on crack. The entire TEAM will be lucky to score three.😄 I want to see Weber fire that rocket of his at least 2-3 times. And I want to see Domi better used.
  13. Go Habs Go. I have a feeling a CH player will have a hat trick, not sure if it may be Suzuki, Armia or Drouin. But certainly someone from that line Or maybe it is a bad breakfast burrito talking Go Habs Go.
  14. It's the MONTREAL CANADIENS It's the PLATTSBURGH PENGUINS STANLEY CUP QUALIFYING ROUND - GAME THREE WILL PRICE'S HEROICS CONTINUE? WILL MALKIN STAY FRUSTRATED?

  15. left one (the Lafrenière bandwagon), the right one is for those in the weber/price window bandwagon
  16. “where there is a will there is a way” ”if Price stands on his head” ”we need CJ to play Domi with ...” Me: I think we are toast
  17. Domi played with reinhart and anthony duclair at the WJC, not drouin
  18. i agree about moving Domi up to wing to get him going but would do it slightly different. Tatar Danault Gallagher Drouin Suzuki Domi Byron KK Armia Lehkonan Evans Weal -give KK some more TOI with great 2 way wingers. he's showing great advanced stats thus far and could benefit from added responsibility. -last change will give us an ability to exploit pitts 3rd line if KK line can prove to handle shared minutes against the Malkin line -Domi played well with Drouin on his left wing when Reinhart centered them in WJC... maybe catch lightning in a bottle with Suzuki? -It also removes some of Domi's responsibilities allowing him to focus on getting to the net, shooting more, and just being a full fledged playoff agitator to go with his raw talents. -Lehkonan dropping down the line up to wing Evans makes for a much more versatile line. I wouldnt want to "demote" Drouin just yet. Anyways those are my changes up front. in the back Mete Fleury although Ouelett has played a regular shift on a successful PK unit thus far. Further complicating that change.
  19. i think the point is... this is a round 1 game 2 thread not a how do we rebuild the team moving forward thread and the enjoyment of getting game analysis and thoughs opinion about the game and playoff round are ruined by the constant blow it up brigade. Take your thoughts about a rebuild/ retool and mention them in the proper thread and im sure at some point a response will be forthcoming. in this one you can talk speak to current events.
  20. Summon his innner Tie...just without the after-the-whistle sucker punches.
  21. That's it. I doubt they can make the finances work without fans. Very few teams have deep-pocketed owners that are willing to fund a season without fans.
  22. A quick note on the schedule - expect the league to announce tomorrow/early Thursday that Game 4 of this series will be an afternoon start - likely 4 PM EST. Game 5, if necessary, would likely be an 8 PM start.
  23. They're shooting for December but unless they can get some fans in arenas by then, I could see them pushing it back further.
  24. Let's hope that there is an actual 2020-21 AHL season!
