  1. 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.

  2. Evans is sent to the taxi squad for a day, gets called back up -> scores. Romanov is sent to the taxi squad for a day, gets called back up -> scores. Send Kotkaniemi next.

  3. 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!

  4. I think Allen would be more than capable of handling them for a game, annoyed or not Also, it would keep Price fresh and ready to play two games out of three in Vancouver if not, then what was the point of signing Allen

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  9. 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.

  13. 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

  18. I would not change the lineup until they finish the road trip except for giving Allen two games. once they are back in Montreal, they will have the last change and a better opportunity to try new combinations (if needed)

  20. It’s been a long, long time since I’ve seen the Habs dominate a team like they dominated EDM during most of the first period. It reminded me of late-80s early-90s Habs. We saw there a team that has a very high ceiling - if they can put it all together consistently. Sure, the game was more balanced thereafter, but that’s par for the course once you’ve build a big lead. Price was in Beast Mode anyway. Edmunson offered some reassurance after a pretty stink-o game. Romanov, meanwhile, impressed again. So confident with the puck. And Old Man Petry just seems to get better an

  27. KK was still the 7th youngest player in the entire NHL in his second year (regulars, not kids who got the 9 game tryout and sent down). One thing to remember when we talk about his second year struggles. That said, KK + Mete as the basis of a deal is something I would definitely do.... then the rest is fitting under the cap... which will mean likely Byron + Weal, and waiting a few more weeks of cap manipulation with these callups/send downs of guys like Evans, Romanov, KK. Of course there still is a big IF in that IF that were possible.

  28. Kotkaniemi had a strong 2/3 of a rookie season, but ran out of steam toward the end -- not surprising for an 18yo rookie. That did show some consistency, but the second season was pretty bad, for multiple reasons (injury, wrong choice of summer training etc). But I'm not ready to write off his potential to become something roughly similar level as Dubois -- but clearly he's not there today. As I have said in my other posts, I don't think this works for us. We need to give up too much (to Columbus first, and then to fit under the cap) that the trade doesn't make us significantly str

  30. Agree, if I am Columbus I would insist on one of Kotkaniemi or Suzuki. If you are losing a young stud then you need to replace him with a young stud or someone who has that potential. Danault is a very good player but not a stud. I like to think that Suzuki is untouchable at this point because his ceiling is so high. If nothing else it's interesting to discuss. No doubt that Dubois is a very valuable piece and will/should command a high return. Players like him, especially at his age aren't available often on the trade market.

  31. Good post. You have to put yourself in the other team’s shoes. If the Habs had Dubois, the fabled young and skilled #1C with size, and he wanted out, would we *possibly* accept Danault/Drouin in return? No. In fact, we would string Bergevin up from yardarm if he did that - selling out the franchise cornerstone for a two-way 50-point C due for a big raise, and an erratic 55-point winger who has not once in five seasons shown himself to be a player to count on. Frankly, I am surprised by the KK rumours. If I were CBJ, I would insist on Suzuki, period. I like KK, I am cautiously optim

  34. I am sure CBJ would want Suzuki, don't blame them for that. To me Suzuki alone could turn out to be an overpay. Suzuki and a 1st is definitely an overpay in my opinion. The kid is going to be great.

  35. 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.

  43. Sportsnet called it wrong. Kulak was called for a cross-check behind the net, Chiarot and Simmonds were 5 for fighting only. That one also didn't lead to a goal - the Anderson board, Suzuki hold, and Weber misfiring on the clear-out did. Those were all legit calls and none of them were forced penalties in terms of the Leafs doing something to force the Habs into taking them.

  46. Love our lineup and line combos as is listed above. Pretty much what I would choose if given opportunity. Leafs are one of the few teams that are also four lines deep so this will be a big test right out of the gates. Prediction: Leafs come out flying, Price stands tall. Habs weather the storm, gradually take over flow of play and win 4-2 with an empty netter. Tatar opens scoring for habs.

  47. Not sure why believing Byron and Lehks cant preform on the 4th line when they've been playing mostly 3rd and sometimes 2nd line minutes over the last few years.pretty sure the "cart is attached to 2 horses" Don We do have a real nice mix of young mid aged and older players this year. I dont believe though that we are the only team with a tandem of goalies. i think there is actually a bunch of teams with 2 strong goalies
