  2. Referees for the 'Dollar Bill’s Discount Money Lenders North Division' as CC so eloquently put it: Kendrick Nicholson Brad Meier Eric Furlatt Kevin Pollock Marc Joannette Graham Skilliter Chris Schlenker Mitch Dunning* Michael Markovic* Corey Syvret* *-AHL referees There's also a list of linesmen that will be restricted to North Division duty but I wanted to mention the referees at least so everyone could rejoice in not seeing Chris Lee's name on there.

  8. Really? I thought it was a bad luck play on the tying goal. Had it not hit the ref, there wouldn't have been a goal. Also, Drouin did get two assists in this game...I wouldn't qualify that as a POS, but that's just me. Don't get me wrong, never been a huge fan of Drouin, but i thought he played a decent game yesterday, that's why i'm a little surprised by your assessment of his game last night!

  10. 10/12 points to start the season on a 6 game road trip. We scored 9 goals in the 2 losses that should have been regulation wins, only losing because of self-inflicted penalty wounds. I never would have dared predict this strong a start to the season.

  11. People are going to hate on Perry all year long here apparently, but I much prefer having a playoff bound team who has the luxury of calling up a Corey Perry and his veteran presence once an injury occurs, rather than a Charles Hudon, or Michal Bournival with an emphasis on “the future” always in mind.

  13. This feels like a trade we would have regretted had we made it. It’s just not the time to disrupt the chemistry. KK may never be Dubois, but we seem to have a team that clicks - let’s ride it out and see what happens. Momentum matters - and I’m not sure it should be messed with in a short season.

The Habs can score and after the VAN game Saturday they will have multiple practices to lock down their defensive game « Steam rolling » 4 lines is going to be a joy to watch all season Now, let’s bring on the caretaker crew for Saturday game and let’s put the Canuck’s team in the dumpster

  21. Its been two games. Two games that the team played pretty well. Id give a guy who is new to the team plenty of time to adjust to new linemates before we start juggling the lines. We didnt even have exhibition games this year.

  22. Ice time for the defence: Chiarot: 23:04 Weber: 21:59 Petry: 21:36 Edmundson: 21:26 Romanov: 15:49 Kulak: 14:38 I like seeing someone other than Weber at the top and those are certainly manageable minutes. A couple minutes more for the third pairing would have been ideal given that the game was basically over in the second period but that's just me nitpicking. Good balance up front as well - Toffoli led with 17:21, Evans was last at 12:31.

  23. So the Habs can get Dubois without losing a long-term core player and Danault gets a steep overpayment? There's no possible way Columbus could justify doing that. Again, if I'm Jarmo Kekalainen, the simple demand of Bergevin is as follows - one of Suzuki or Kotkaniemi has to be in the deal. If that doesn't happen, there's no reason whatsoever for Columbus to consider dealing Dubois to Montreal. Dubois is their number one centre. As Montreal fans, we can't say that Danault shouldn't be the number one in Montreal but hey, he could easily fill that role in Columbus and

  24. Ì No he doesnt. Petry and Kulak with both taking turns pushing the offence was the best D pair in the NHL over 2 seasons

  25. Would you accept a rental centre, an overpaid winger, and a second-round pick for Kotkaniemi? That's basically what you're proposing Columbus do, trade their top centre (a somewhat-recent top-five pick) for not a whole lot of value here. I don't think you'd be happy if Bergevin did that; similarly, Columbus would rightfully be skewered if they did that trade.

  31. Nothing too exciting in the presser. Don't expect any other signings from the Habs and expect a lot of daily transactions for salary cap flexibility. A quick summary of the highlights: https://www.habsworld.net/2021/01/notes-from-marc-bergevins-press-conference/

  32. Great to be on board. Been a Habs fan ever since they took down the big bad Bruins in 1971... grew up outside of Hershey and was a regular at some great AHL games back then and saw a lot of the “young” Canadiens play for Nova Scotia. Bears vs. Voyager games were as intense as Bruins vs. Canadien games. Quite a few bench emptying brawls. Those 1975-79 Canadian teams were the best I’ve ever seen! Lived in Boston’s North End from 1986-1990 and always went to Bruin games with company tix. Nothing like the old Gawden! Oh those Bruin vs. Canadiens games never disappointed! Hosted the 89-90

  35. A good 1A/1B split in a full season would be something like 55/27 games. Translate that to this season, and it's 38/18. Given the compressed schedule, I would hope to see Allen somewhere in the high teens by the end of the season, assuming no injuries and both goalies playing well. As a reference point, 17 games in a full season would give Price 65. He has played that many only four times in his career: 2010-11 (72 games, with Auld!), 2011-12 (65, with Budaj), 2014-15 (65, with Tokarski) and 2018-19 (66, with Niemi). 65 games (or equivalent) is a heavy load for any goaltender, and

  38. I would not trade Suzuki. Not with what we saw as the season went on last year, and in the playoffs. He'd be untouchable to me. I think the ceiling is very, very high with Suzuki and arguably higher than Dubois. I would give KK. The rumour I've heard is KK and Mete + cap stuff so likely Byron and I don't know, maybe adding Jordan Weal would make it work cap wise.

  39. I'm saying that I'd rather keep Kulak and lose Juulsen for nothing, than lose Kulak for a draft pick. Kulak is a better player right now than Juulsen is ever going to be IMO> Kulak absolutely would have been claimed, there are teams out there who know the analytics and see his worth. If Juulsen didn't clear, there is absolutely a 0% chance that Kulak would have cleared. You are massively underestimating Kulak here, who is the third best D on this team. At Kulak's salary he is a damn bargain, and you aren't on January 12th, cgoing to find a better pl

  42. We haven’t show anything yet and we might suck. True statement and I certainly won’t complain if fans have dialed back expectations. Why am I so jacked? HOPE MB has done nothing to help this team for years. Sure he digs up the Semin’s looking to strike gold and he did trade a top pairing Dman for a winger to play centre but he has not helped the team. This time he addressed a bunch of holes. Is Edmundson the Dman we need? Nope we need a #1 LD but holy crap he helped the team. I think we underestimate the value of Allen and it is key. So many b

  45. Danault isn't a 3C though. He's going to continue to play the most minutes (or second most) of the centres every game for the simple reason that he is used against the other team's top line and the other team will play their top line the most minutes. He also is going to be the number 1 PK unit. So his usage doesn't scream #3 C. Add to that, his production 5v5 is right there with anyone not named McDavid, Draisaitl, MacKinnon while doing that job. And yes, he doesn't have the PP points, so thats a discount.... but $6 million a season is not out of the question
