    If coming back here rejuvenates his career, I only hope we can trade him for top 4 defenseman Raphael Diaz.

    Primeau will be 26 when Price's contract expires (Price will be 38). So Primeau should be entering his prime by then assuming he gets to the NHL and continues to develop well like he currently seems to be. Goaltenders are notoriously difficult to project, but if he has starter potential at the NHL level he could possibly take over as the starter some day. Spend 1 or 2 more years in the NCAA, another year or 2 in the AHL, and then he could spend some time as Price's backup until it's time to take over. It's good to have a succession (not sure of the spelling on that) plan for Price. Not saying that Primeau will ever be as good as Price, but might be able to be the team's starter one day.

    Might need someone else to post lines and news today as I am working til 5. Talk around Toronto is this is a big game. Fans believe this is a playoff preview. Personally I believe the Habs should win this game and start Toronto's slide out of the playoffs entirely, but hey, I'm a romantic.

    As washed up as Weise might have seemed these past two years I wouldn’t discount the possibility of semi-resurrecting himself. Players like him bleed for teams they identify with.

    I wish there was a video thread but just like last time I figured I'd place it in to the latest thread dedicated to PGT. This video is an extended version of the one imbedded in my "Habs 2019 & Vintage Tribute". It features "Point Point - All This"

    I'm fairly convinced that if Drouin, Domi and Armia were on a 3 on 0 break they wouldn't even get a shot on net. Domi and Drouin would pass it to each other approx 8000 times, and Armia would dump it in the corner to try to grind out a goal.

    I'd be willing to part ways with Mete or Juulsen and a high draft pick to get my hands on one of Gostisbehere or Matheson. I know that offering one of Mete and/or Juulsen and a 2nd round pick is not enough to get you hands on Gostisbehere or Matheson, but that's why I suggested picking up some dead weight from one of those teams (like we did with Winnipeg in the Armia deal).

    Greetings fellow Habs fans. As advertised, my name's Mark Darling and I'm a life-long Canadiens fan. Originally from the great city of Montreal, but now residing down the road in Ottawa. Not much of a poster but I enjoy reading the banter. Keep up the good work!

    Because now every powerplay idea the coaches have starts with the words, "#### it! Let's try..."

    He's had a great 2018-19. My problem is that I have a sense of historical perspective. He inherited a team that was on the cusp of contention and mismanaged it to the point where clinging to a wildcard spot by the skin of our teeth makes him look like GM of the year. In other words, he looks great this season partly because we're comparing him to the horrendous results of his previous body of work. That's only impressive if we have amnesia. A MUCH stronger point in his favour than this short-term 'success' is that the Habs' prospects are generally very well-regarded. He seems to have managed to assemble quite a promising crop of youth. If those players can develop properly, and if Weber and Price can manage to have looooong careers where they excel into their mid-to-late 30s, then Bergevin may yet manage to build a club that surpasses the 2014 and 2015 teams which he destroyed through sheer blithering arrogance and stupidity. Therein lies the case for Bergevin. Lots of things can go wrong, however; we'll see how it plays out.

    A few things. The last four games proved a few things. They dominated Winnipeg, played well against Toronto and came up short in OT, played well against Nashville but Nashville was still the better team, and played 40 minutes with Tampa but got killed in the third. Thats the top 4 teams in the NHL by points. In other words this is a good team, a playoff team, but not a true contender (and not one player away either). Going into the deadline that is good to know. The team can compete and when players already on the team and young... Kotkaniemi, Drouin, Domi, Mete, etc... along with prospects like Suzuki, Brook, Romanov take the next step, they will be there. As for the standings, The Sky is not falling, contrary to some posts here. Seeing as the Habs have more points than the third place team in the Metro, three teams would have to pass Montreal to knock the Habs out of the playoffs. (The first team to pass them would take third in that division). They also are not going to face another stretch that was as tough as their last four games. Points will be easier to come by from here.

    Incidentally, streaming is kind of OK. A bit choppy at HD resolution but if I go down to medium it's pretty reliably. Kudos to Air Canada/GoGo on this!

    If Armia had scored to make it 2 - 0, how different is the rest of this game? Instead the Leafs get 2 quick ones and the Habs are chasing.

    Another guy (and h'es probably not ready to make a big impact this year but might have a higher offensive upside than Larsson) is Josh Mahura. A LHD who is a rookie in the AHL right now. played with Cale Fleury last year and had 69 points in 60 games Has 14 points in 23 AHL games and 5 in 17 NHL games this year.

    This thread is a good read, Habs are on pace for 100 points after 2/3rds of the season. Lots of hockey left but it is safe to say that this team has exceeded most fan's expectations. Lots has gone right so far in terms of health, rebounding, and development, so here's to hoping that continues and they can make some noise if they make the playoffs.

    I must admit the kid is impressing me more and more as the season moves forward. You would expect some kind of let down from KK at this point in the season, but he only seems to get better!

    Yeah, 8 overall in the league and if the power play was better and helped them win a few games they could have been as high as 4th. Its been a good season so far, lots of hockey to play but they have to be proud of what they have done so far.
