  1. Drouin won't get a point there, but he drew the penalty and made the play along the boards to start the goal (a 3rd assist type pass). He also has an assist tonight. Clearly has taken his game to another level this season.

  2. I'm still available. I'm very defensive, like to hit people and most of my friends and family find me very offensive. And as you may have suspected I'm cheap.

  5. They are nowhere near the team they were in the 80’s. While they admittedly had dynasty holdovers in Robinson and Gainey, they drafted and developed a multiple conn smythe and Vezina winner in Roy, a multiple Norris winner in Chelios, 100 point man Naslund, 50 goal scorer im the enigmatic Richer, multiple selke winner in Carbonneau, traded for 90 point men in Damphousse, Bellows and Muller. Always had a steady stream of good top 4 Dmen until the Houle years Oh, and we won two cups and went to another finals.

  6. Weber has clearly declined, and significantly in the defensive end of the ice. The xGA stats show this. The shots he is giving up are coming from high danger areas more and more. Thats an issue with a nearly 8 million cap hit, so yes, I'd leave him unprotected.

  8. Tangential side-note: I got Chris Nilan to make a “Memmo” video as a present for my father’s 79th birthday. He did a great job, talking about how tough things are under Covid, expressing rueful sympathy about the challenges of getting older - his sincerity and charisma really came through. 👍 Knuckles is da man!

  10. Not happy with Toffoli's choice to throw the puck back in the defensive zone when he had a chance to clear. Seconds later, it was 2-0 Winnipeg. You have the puck on your stick and the third pairing on the ice, make the smart play and get it out of there.

  19. Sorry, we disagree ... not only was the puck gone but McDavid's hit had nothing to do with taking the puck away or preventing KK from making a play of any sort ... it was solely to attempt to inflict pain and take out frustrations ... it is the type of superfluous hit that reflects a complete disregard for the potential for injury that the league needs to eliminate, hockey is inherently dangerous within the rules, no need for this sort of shyte ... that KK wasn't hurt doesn't change that he could have been

  20. Since my call-outs of guys who have been terrible this season seem to be working some magic in this game, let me try another: Tomas Tatar is a bum...they are nuts to give him powerplay time. Also, Shea Weber is great at hitting iron, but can't hit the back of the net nearly enough to justify teeing it up for him all the time.

  29. I get that. But you can say O’Reilly was that guy in St. Louis, and he hadn't been part of a team that had much success in a lot of years. I’ll take a young skilled guy who is committed and works hard (doesn’t float), over an old cup winner, simply trying to pickup a player because he won before. we have Perry who has won before. Edmondson’s a guy whose won. We have enough filler players and have always chased has beens in the past. Let’s go get someone who wants to be a winner and is skilled and works hard - not just more plumbers that were part of a winning team. I s

  33. Habs fans would give their eye teeth for a restoration of teams of the level that Serge Savard built. Annual contenders, strong from top to bottom even if they were lacking superstar-level offensive talent. I said at the start of the season that I expected this team to be a lot like those ‘80s teams: big, strong, tough to play against, anchored by a powerful goalie, and getting offence by committee. A team that had a legitimate chance to go deep. It looked for the first 15 games that this prediction was mostly being borne out, except for the goaltending part. The next 1

  35. I have to laugh a bit. This team is three points ahead of Calgary with one game in hand for the fourth playoff spot in the division after 30 games, and people are talking about tanking and blowing it up 🤪 The team has a problem at D for sure. It remains possible that this need be addressed. Let’s see if this group can manage to gradually improve under Ducharme. And remember that right now, this is a playoff team. Beyond that, I am not a believer in tanking at all. Someone said the Oil are stacked. They have two great players for sure; and they have absolutely sucked as

  36. This is why it’s a good thing you have nothing to do with making decision for the Habs organization. Go prefer the Sens situation. Go enjoy it. There really is no coherent advice being given within this post. Why do some people bring up the draft every losing streak? I had to go all the way back to Matthews, McDavid, Mackinnon, Stamkos (2008) and Patrick Kane in 2007 to find any meaningful 1st overall picks. In fact, Stamkos/Kane are the only meaningful picks that have actually accomplished anything as a 1st overall pick. Matthews is the most r

  44. I don't think he gets $5.3M on the open market (which is what his full AAV is including Vegas' portion). Salaries were depressed in free agency back in October and I see no reason to think that won't happen here with some teams in worse shape now than they were then. Look back at the Toffoli deal (4/17) - that's probably around the range he'll have to settle for if he wants a long-term deal. Armia's in the same boat too for what it's worth - I think he's looking at a small dip to maybe $2.25M per.

  46. I, too, would love to have an MVP-level forward who is highly skilled and a quick skater. But while quoting long-term numbers makes sense for the HoF, it is less relevant for assessing a player's current value. Hall has not been that 73-point player for two years, neither in Arizona or in Buffalo. Admittedly he is only 29, but he is well off that pace recently (60-point pace last year and 48-point pace this year). That is indeed not better than Tatar (73- and 48-point pace). Maybe he will regain his form. Maybe. But I think we already have enough veterans whose performa
