  1. 2017-18 Line-up

    Same here, I think Lekhonen has the smart and speed to keep up with Drouin. Lots of interesting lines combination in this thread. The truth is that combinations change a lot in the season , if not during a game. We'll end seeing most of them. The lines will revolved around duos that click. The 3rd guy will shuffle depending of the opposition. As @Zowpeb said, I see Hemsky playing on the top 2 lines. Maybe not for 20 min/game but that's where he can be effective. Playing a couple shift on a top line, then seeing Shaw play one to add intensity. Duos I look forward to see: Plekanec - Hemsky (we've been waiting for that duo for more than a decade) Drouin - Lekhonen Drouin - Galchenyuk Drouin - Pacioretty If Pacioretty and Drouin develop indeed a good chemistry it would be very promising. Finally a real first line?
  2. Welcome to the new HW Forum

    Forum software maintenance & upgrade The forum has been updated to the latest version, which should help improve performance and block the bots/spam we were receiving. There seem to be some visual changes. dlbalr will certainly tweak it later this week to make it more Habs-like. If you see anything not working, suggestions of things that can be improved let us know here. Go Habs !
  3. 2017 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    wow you guys nailed it
  4. 2017 HabsWorld Playoff Pool

    no prizes for Quebec participants I guess? I'm in anyways
  5. Detroit vs Montreal 7:30pm

    He should stop thinking he is Letang or Karlson because he is not. He has some great abilities though. Not the whole package but he should develop his play around his strengths.
  6. Ottawa vs Montreal 7:30pm

    We need Emelin. Let's hope he gets his groove back in time for playoffs. He needs to start hitting again and stop the turnovers!
  7. RDS and TVA Sports

    Hear the noise too Stephane. LOL dlbalr ! that's bad !
  8. Serious hint: He is a Montreal Canadiens 1st rounder !
  9. wow you're good there is only 1 current NHLer from CT with more game played than Patches and Quick.. who is it ?
  10. Yes until you consider both are from Connecticut. Can you name another NHL player from Connecticut ? Nice compliment still.
  11. Canadiens sign Alex Semin, one year, $1.1 M

    haha. you do well. there's however I think different factors to be more optimistic with Semin. Plus he's not 36.
  12. Canadiens sign Alex Semin, one year, $1.1 M

    Still early in the Summer and training camp is a long way, but anyone here ready to predict Semin will get more points than Patches this season? Sure we don't know Patches' extent of injury, but that's part of the guessing game I feel like it's a hit or miss and I tend to think our PP can't get worse. It's safe to say Semin should really help the PP and it's also safe to say any player on a 1-yr deal tend to perform well. He's also only 31 so baring injuries, he should perform. My prediction would be that Semin will get more pts than our scoring leader from last season! Patch 72GP 32G 38A 70P Semin 74GP 31G 42A 73P
  13. Montreal Impact

    It's like if Martin St. Louis was signing with the Zurich Lions.
  14. Expansion in 2017-18?

    If the Nordiques enter as a Western Conference team, we'd get many double-headers nights.. lots of potential TV revenues. Watch the Habs play at 7pm then the Nordiques game at 9-10pm.
  15. Canadiens sign Alex Semin, one year, $1.1 M

    My thought too. There's no perfect all-star sniper available for 1.1 M$ out there. He's not perfect for sure, but he's adding something we cruelly lacked, raw skill. I would like to see him with Galchenyuk. Hopefully this is the year Galchenyuk blossoms and maybe Semin will find a way to be a positive impact.
