    In recent weeks, there has been an uptick in posters that have decided to simply down vote posts based on who the poster is, not the content of the post. Others seem to down vote anything that doesn't exactly match their opinion which is not what the voting system is for. Instead, multiple threads devolved into discussions about the system itself, often accompanied by a rapid series of down votes. At this point, that function seems to be doing more harm than good. Accordingly, I've decided to disable that button for the time being. I'm open to considering re-enabling it down the road but I'm hopeful that this will improve things on here.

    Missed the first period because of work. Yay late shift. First 3/4 of the 2nd Habs were a team with a mission. Last 5 minutes was something else. They need to get back to just skating hard.

    With you? Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    1) Unless you were in the room, and inside Bergevin's head, how do you know he didn't want Tatar. 2) How do you know what the scouting report was on Domi and whether the team saw something in Domi's 20 games at C with Arizona that showed them he was a better C than Galchenyuk? I didn't like the trade when it was made (but love it now). I'm not willing to say it was luck though. Teams do a lot of work before they make trades and obviously they saw something in Domi and his ability to play in the middle, seeing as he was made a centre from the very start of training camp on his first day here. 3) What trades were available that he could have moved a prospect for? Which ones should he have done? Did you want him to trade Kotkaniemi? Suzuki? Romanov? Seriously, your Bergevin hate fest is tiring. If you actually made good points like some here have that would be one thing, but this is just asinine.

    Team leaders in PIM's Tatar 12, Lekonen 10, all stick penalties, Byron has 2 minutes

    Danault about 35 minutes TOI over the two nights, including seven minutes on PK. Weber about 45 minutes including eight minutes on PK. Tired penalty killers are not good penalty killers.

    If they had not taken five minors the PK would not have been as serious an issue. But you have someone sitting in the box, and the team is already tired in the second game of back-to-back, you will lose half a step in every race to the puck. Improve the PK, yes, please. But self-discipline to avoid penalties should be the first step.

    Could tell with those last 2 minutes that the Habs just didn't have anything left. Now they have 3 days off to fix that god awful penalty kill. What the #### happened to it?

    Terrible giving up a 3rd period lead to lose in that fashion. It's time for Julien to send a message about taking stupid penalties as it happens far too often: pressbox Byron for the next game. It can't continue.

    Noon start out here, so figured early wont bother anyone. *Groundhog weekend with back to back vs Blues-Wild. Habs looking for 3rd win in last 4 games. From NHL.com: Players to watch Canadiens goalie Carey Price is one win from passing Sean Burke (324) for sole possession of 27th place on the NHL all-time list. Blues center Brayden Schenn's five-game goal streak ended on Thursday, but he has eight points (five goals, three assists) in six-game point streak. They said it "When you play the Stanley Cup champions, they're always concern that they're going to be ready, especially at home. ... We have to understand that it's going to be a tough challenge and we have to be at our best." -- Canadiens coach Claude Julien "We have to come out and have more energy than we had in Montreal. We played a soft game against Montreal in Montreal." -- Blues coach Craig Berube Canadiens projected lineup Tomas Tatar -- Phillip Danault -- Brendan Gallagher Artturi Lehkonen -- Max Domi -- Paul Byron Jonathan Drouin -- Jesperi Kotkaniemi -- Joel Armia Nick Cousins -- Nate Thompson - Nick Suzuki Victor Mete -- Shea Weber Brett Kulak -- Jeff Petry Ben Chiarot -- Cale Fleury Carey Price Keith Kinkaid Scratched: Jordan Weal, Mike Reilly, Christian Folin Injured: None Blues projected lineup Jaden Schwartz -- Brayden Schenn -- Vladimir Tarasenko Sammy Blais -- Ryan O'Reilly -- David Perron Robby Fabbri -- Tyler Bozak -- Alexander Steen Ivan Barbashev -- Oskar Sundqvist -- Robert Thomas Colton Parayko -- Alex Pietrangelo Jay Bouwmeester -- Robert Bortuzzo Vince Dunn -- Justin Faulk Jake Allen Jordan Binnington Scratched: Zach Sanford, Mackenzie MacEachern Injured: Carl Gunnarsson (lower body)

    Would like to say yes, but if happen to miss playoffs once again it could be end of his reign, but likely not till the off-season. However, it even seems his most ardent critics are becoming quieter with each win.

    My perspective of Shea Weber has a lot to do with his offensive game and more specifically, his slap shot. Shea Weber is not a particularly fast skater but I think he’s actually quicker than some give him credit for, in that he’s far from being a Douglas Murray-like slug. It’s a personal opinion but I feel that when Weber’s offensive game is on, his confidence level goes up and his whole game rises as a consequence. His game was off the first few games this season but that included his patented 110 mph slap shot. He was missing the net, fumbling his reception of certain passes and not even inducing much fear into his opponents who would be forced to block his shots. This ties in with one of the main reasons that I don’t fully mind when it’s somewhat predictable that the puck will end up on his stick for a one timer; someone will still have to have the courage to step in front of his shot, and maybe multiple times. This is not an easy achievement. This is all to say that last game was the first game that I saw with my own eyes, the confident Weber with his slap shot from the point on the power play. I think he had been practicing repeatedly over the past few days. Unfortunately for Erikkson Ek of the Wild, he became Weber’s first casualty this season after blocking Weber’s shot 3 times on the same penalty kill without any reprieve. This left him walking out of the arena in a protective boot around his foot. I do not condone Weber injuring anyone with his shot, but I do take last game as a positive sign for Weber heading into the rest of the season and not only do I expect him to score his first fairly soon, if not tonight, but I expect his overall game to rise as well.

    In the last three games the Habs have St. Louis.... 61.5% corsi, 75.38% xG (5v5) and allowed just 29 shots on goal Tampa... 55.6% corsi, 52.55% xG (5v5) and allowed just 22 shots on goal Minnesota... 54% Corsi, 78.4% xG (5v5), and allowed just 17 shots on goal The defensive issues that we saw in the first four games are resolving...... the trend is real. The team had issues to start the year in their first 4 games in their own end. The defence has picked it up starting in the St. Louis game (a softy goal by Price on Blais gifted them a third goal when we really should have held them to two)... The tampa game was again solid outside of a five minute stretch and the Bolts are likely the best offensive team in the league.... the Wild are a bad team, but the Habs played near perfect shutdown hockey on them. And even with the Wild being bad, you can't say that about St. Louis or Tampa. The defense on this team has turned a corner.

    One thing I know, is that I won't buy a Suzuki or Poehling jersey anytime soon. If Bergevin tells the truth about doing all he can to get a #2 LD, one of them is going away.

    Nope, we have Weber. Dropping nearly $15m into 2 34+ defencemen for the next 5 years will kill us. I'll take Brodin though.

    I missed the goal as well😂 Tuned in now but I was on my way home from work during the first period when Mete scored. October 17th, 2019 vs Minnesota at the Centre Bell. It’s also the first time the Habs have scored against Minnesota at home since 2017.

    I’ll open by saying I missed the first half of the game due to work. That being said, the half I did watch, it was the habs game to lose. Barring a few breakaways, we had Tampa on the ropes nearly the entire 3rd. Had some good chances in the 3rd. Vasilevsky stole that game. It’s not a common occurrence to be outshot by 10 and win by 2 goals.

    To be honest, I think he would be...in the right situation. If I had to guess on what that situation would be, it'd be at a time where the Habs are a legitimate playoff team (not a bubble one) and the player they're getting back is either signed or under team control for 3+ years. Granted, that's a pretty tough set of self-imposed circumstances to work under (very few key players traded in recent years meet the control requirement) but I think that's the perfect storm type of situation he'd be looking for.

    Wow just wow. I beat you you were one of those people that didn't like the Galchenyuk trade. I didn't like it base on the fact he gave up one problem for the same problem and didn't address anything in that trade. But it turned out in his favor, but don't go on saying he knew what he was doing. He got lucky. The Tatar trade he just wanted Suzuki. So again didn't go out and say he knew what he was doing when he took Tatar. And again since people don't seem to understand last time he traded a top prospect it was for Drouin. We all know how he got eaten alive for that trade and He hasn't been willing to trade a top prospect since.

    And I think that's probably fine, provided the LD is not an older guy on a hefty contract. Neither Suzuki nor Poehling project to be indispensable superstars. It wouldn't be like trading a 22-year-old Price, like a lot of fans wanted at the time.

    Are you serious????? It has been said multiple times that Tatar was a throw int, to even out the cap for Las Vegas. Maybe you should look up your points . Also their has been interviews in which he said that teams where asking for top prospects on Montreal in any trades for their top players. Bergevin didn't want to pay the price. All I am trying to say and the whole point of this trend is if you want to not trade your top prospects to get top players that could help you win now...... Why string Price and Weber along on this rebuild. They're getting old let them go try and win a cup now well they're still good enough to be top players in this league. If we're going to wait on development of our young players we're not wining anything anytime soon.
