    All the Habs to Lehkonen after he fails to shoot at an open net twice:

    I think he's a third line player, but i agree his offence won't be high end

    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.

    Maybe Armia is the only Finn allowed to score empty netters.

    In a just world, Price's rebound control would have earned him an assist on Domi's goal.

    If you've given up on him at 24, then what is the point of keeping him around? Flip him somewhere else and get an asset back. That's the decent thing to do and it also makes sense in terms of asset management. I'm not sure why you're so agitatedly against the idea that giving him a new chance elsewhere is simple decency.

    You've still got 24 games to go. Lots of hockey left and I doubt they are all going to stay hot. Things change quickly and 8 days ago the Habs were the team winning

    No. He delivers on every shift, as does Weber. My point is that that is what matters. Patches was low drama (until the end) but he was ultimately an enigma who could only be counted upon to be streaky. You win with guys who bring it night in and night out as your core guys. THAT is the character and attitude you want.

    The post wasn’t about Subban. But since you bring it up, PK came to play at a high level every night, which is why your claim is nonsense.

    Domi has slowed down from his early torrid pace, but honestly, he remains an upgrade. First, coaches feel they can actually play him at C. Right away that's a win. Second, he brings a much more complete game, including playmaking. And third, he hustles and competes every night. Unless Galy really pulls ahead of him offensively, we win that trade. Bergevin used to drone on about 'attitude' - and his cluelessness on this was revealed when he prioritized trading Subban, who was definitely not the problem - but the real issue may have been that we had two key cogs whom we expected to be leaders driving the offence (Patches and Galy ) who were streaky, erratic players by nature. Guys like Domi and Tatar are not elite, but they are *reliable* and low-drama players who perform night in and night out. The result is a better overall team.

    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.

    Weird to see 40 minutes of some of Montreal's best hockey followed by 20 minutes of their worst.

    At least our powerplay came at the end of the period where it can't kill our momentum.

    Audette scored with less than two minutes to go but the Devils made it interesting, getting it back to within one with 22 seconds to go. However, Laval held on and actually won a game. https://theahl.com/stats/game-summary/1019108

    Hopefully an upgrade that can be made by the deadline.

    The Habs hope to continue their strong play with a visit to Music City and a Preds team with Cup aspirations. The game marks another chapter of the Shwebs vs PK debate, albeit with our Captain's position looking stronger this time around. Perhaps PK's been distracted with his celebrity love affair? Maybe Mike Fisher could teach him a thing or two about dating a famous blonde and playing at an all-star level (or at least the first part). Or maybe the time is ripe for the Habs to steal more than just the game from the Preds! Would you leave your woman alone with any of these smoldering scoundrels? The drama unfolds at 8pm Eastern.

    The trick is for the other team to have the powerplay.

    Brayden Schenn would be a good target. His name was around the Habs during the summer

    Both PPs are atrocious. Josi is a left shot though. I question whether one of the keys to a PP is having at least one guy who is comfortable having the puck on his stick for prolonged periods of time while being able to defend it - puck on a string comes to mind. A guy like that can exhaust the patience of a defender, coax him into making a mistake, thereby creating an opening for himself or someone else. Kovalev comes to mind. Is that the last time we had a truly good PP?

    This is what Brunet wrote + a rough translation of mine : "Pour faire une histoire courte, Ryan Poehling est donc considéré comme un joueur collégial de 19 ans pour les règles touchant au ballottage et à l'élargissement des cadres, mais comme un joueur de 20 ans pour le statut contractuel." "Long story short, Ryan Poehling is considered as a 19 yo college player for rules about waivers and expansion but as a 20 yo player in terms of contract status.

    Claimed by NJ, and Weise called up regardless. Laval's forward depth is soon to be filled out by arena staff.

    Another post, another Subban reference, Habs must be on a losing streak. "They are reliable and low drama players who perform night in and night out. The result is a better overall team". That sounds sort of like the reason why I prefer Weber 😆
