  2. Leads Rocket in scoring, has 135 NHL games (17pts) experience and am OK holding back Evans till later in year. At NHL speed he really got crushed in pre-season.

    Not who I wanted recalled (Evans), but not unexpected: Chaput recalled
  5. With Scherbak and Juulsen going on IR, the Habs have recalled Michael Chaput from Laval. I know some will have wanted Evans but considering Chaput will be the 13th forward and not someone that will likely play much, it makes a lot more sense for him to be the one getting the nod. https://www.nhl.com/canadiens/news/canadiens-recall-michael-chaput/c-302137218

    Me either. He might be fine in a short stint, but he's not the guy I would have targeted Chiarelli should have been the one that got fired
  7. The season at the 20% mark

    Every year, the Habs bring up prospects for half-dozen games at a time. Usually in December-January, before the trade deadline. Of the forwards, i think Evans would be one. But probably they will mostly bring Ds, to evaluate whom they may part with
  8. The season at the 20% mark

    Id continue to let him dominate the ahl. No point to call him up for 4th line duty.

    Hitchcock is not the coach i would want if im building my team around connor mcdavid
  10. 2018-19 NHL General Discussion Thread

    They're looking for short-term results as if they don't make the playoffs, Chiarelli is heading out the door. Hitchcock will give them some stability and a different style of play and if it still doesn't work, then whoever takes over as GM will get to pick a new coach and probably blow up the roster somewhat. It's rare that an assistant coach would leave to take an opportunity midseason. Teams usually don't give permission to interview in those situations.

    What's wrong with Hitchcock? Personally, I always liked Marc Crawford, but I guess the Senators stench is just too strong to wash off him at this point

    Why would they hire Hitchcock
  13. Injury news

    Scherbak seems fragile
  14. Game#21 Nov 19 2018 7:30 Caps vs Habs

    Agree for sure.
  15. He has to score four goals in a game first. But yeah, I'm becoming increasingly skeptical of his offensive ceiling. His shot rarely finds the net. When he's making defensive blunders like last night, he doesn't look like a very valuable player.
  16. The season at the 20% mark

    The thing I like the most is something stats don't show and that's body language. These guys back each other up, they're smiling on the bench and they look like they really enjoy playing with one another. Thats something we haven't seen in awhile.
  17. Injury news

    Ouch. Literally and figuratively. Hope for a quick recovery for him, and also for our struggling D corps.
  18. The season at the 20% mark

    You have a point there. While our D wasn't fantastic then, either, it's been worse yet in the last few weeks with Armia and Byron out of action.
  19. The season at the 20% mark

    Now with the injuries th CH has time to makes personnel decisions. I still hope they bring up Evans before the xmas holidays
  20. Injury news

    Juulsen out indefinitely with a facial fracture. Sherbak is also on the IR now.
  21. Like commandant said Benn is just playing too far up the line up. He’s not a top pair guy and never was but it’s what the team has to work with. Schlemko is showing why he is a journeyman that has been bouncing around from team to team on the third line maybe he can be useful but who knows. Probably my traded soon when Juulsen and Weber are back. I wouldn’t mind a somewhere to bring in a somewhat capable second line guy. Nothing flashy but someone that can at least keep up with Petry. Not sure who but that needs to be addressed if Montreal plan on making the playoffs.

    Tough day for coaches. Mike Yeo was let go after St. Louis lost to the Kings (Craig Berube is the interim replacement) while Todd McLellan in Edmonton was just fired, replaced by Ken Hitchcock.
  23. Game#21 Nov 19 2018 7:30 Caps vs Habs

    They are playing Benn on the top pair, against the Caps top line. Thats the biggest issue. Benn looks fine on the third pair with weaker competition... but you can't expect to put Benn on the ice against Ovechkin's line or Backstrom's line all game long. He just can't do it. I'm fine if he's traded cause we have a log jam of third pairing d. Its the lack of top 4 D that is killer. We have 2 right now... Petry and Reilly (barely, but he can do the job).... Weber back will help. But we need one more to step up.... Mete is young and not ready... Benn is a third pair guy at best, same with Ouellet, Schlemko, Alzner, etc...
  24. The season at the 20% mark

    I was one of the few who said that one or two surprises can change a team. It seems to be happening. Early on Domi Drouin and Tatar have been impact players. This team at forward could have a 2a 2b 2c forward group when Armia and Byron come back. Defense is another story. A #1, #3, and 6 bottom pair defensemen. I would put reilly with weber. But I don't like benn oulet or mete on the second pairing. This defense needs work. I don't think coaching can fix it. As fun as it is watching all the scoring, you have to defend too. It seems like Armia and Byron helped this. The defense didn't look this horrible when they were playing.
  25. Its incredible that Price was amazing and let in 5. That's how bad this defense is.
  26. Permanent Rumour Thread

    If Juulsen's going to be out for a while, they probably won't do anything now. They can keep getting away with carrying 8 d-men since they don't appear to be inclined to keep more than one extra forward on the roster.
  27. I think I'll just leave this here...
