  1. Jan. 10, Montreal vs St. Louis, 8 PM

    When the season started we fore checked like beasts. We were super high pressure, 2 man fore check, always in your face. Sometime along the way we stopped doing that...We still use speed but our fore check is nowhere near what it was (and hasn't been for some time). I do not know if that is a system thing or a player thing but I want us to go back to the high pressure game we started the season with.
  2. HABS @ HAWKS, DEC 9, 18:00 ET

    If we could ever figure out the PP this team would be dangerous. I think Kulak looks pretty good, not a star but he is playing well (or maybe Weber makes him look good). Team is still fun to watch
  3. Nov. 10, Golden Knights vs Habs, 7:00 PM

    It seems almost every game we play is a hot mess but for the first time in many years I am really enjoying watching it. This team with all of its holes and short comings is simply a joy to watch and knowing how young most of them are gives hope for future improvement. Our defense is a disaster but Juulsen, Mete, and Reilly all show signs of growing into good players. We have hope
  4. Carey Price

    I think there are a couple of things going on here. First of all this team is playing a different style than they used to. Most games are run and gun style now where we typically played a trap system in the past. The defense pinches much more than ever and that leaves opportunity for the other team to get chances on us. Secondly we have a very young defense that shows signs of great things but also does some really bad things! not to mention that we have a #4 Dman (Petry) and a #6 Dman (Has been Benn alot) as our first pairing. I also see Price as similar to Peyton Manning of the NFL - very technical and they both rely on the other team members to do their jobs correctly. Manning looked like the best quarterback ever to play at times and an absolute disaster at other times. If everyone picked up their assignments and the receivers ran their routes correctly then Manning would move the ball up the field with incredible precision. If they failed to do things the way they were supposed to then Manning looked like a horrible quarterback. I see Price the same way, a very technical goalie that relies on the defense to pick up the right players and the forwards to support correctly and this is not happening right now. Niemi isn't fairing much better!
  5. Oct. 13, Pittsburgh vs Montreal, 7 PM

    When we forcheck hard we cause teams absolute havoc out there. We are a turn over generating machine. Tatar with 2 goals but he could have had 4! He needs to shoot more instead of looking for the pass Drouin played hard and did lots of great little things out there. He still tried to dangle through the entire team, eventually loosing the puck again. I hope he learns... This team is fun to watch! We win because of the speed and hard work but watching Malkin use his skill against us makes me realize just how little skill this team has. PP is embarrassing. We did nothing on the 5on3 and the overtime PP was terrible too. Someone needs to learn how to SHOOT It's fun cheering for the team again after cheering for losses last year. I'm not sure if Coconut (why is his nickname coconut?) should stay or go to Finland
  6. Game #2 Oct. 6, 7:00 Montreal vs Pittsburgh

    As Commandant said, our blueline is looking pretty good and gives me hope for the future. These guys are only going to get better. It was a welcome feeling while watching this to have hope! We actually have something to cheer for! CJ has coached well so far and I really hope he gives all these young guys some rope to work through their mistakes. So far he is letting them play and not crushing them due to mistakes. They need instruction and support not a hammer and so far he is doing that. If we continue to work like this game in and game out we are going to the playoffs. Price has looked great. Drouin continues to be a lazy turd and his shtick of trying to deke out the entire team over and over is old. We lost that trade in a big way. It's only game 2 but I think the Habs are back
  7. Domi > Galchenyuk

    Domi has a great work ethic and he has a lot of drive in him for sure and I do like what I've seen so far. Where Domi relies on his work ethic, Galchenyuk relies on his skill. Domi works harder for sure but Galchenyuk has significantly more skill. Too early to tell but this might be a win for both teams
  8. Oct. 3, Habs vs Leafs, 7 PM

    If we play this way all season then we are a playoff team. We have foot speed, puck speed and good work ethic...except for Drouin. I'm not going to base his season on one game but he was noticeably the laziest person on the ice. We have 4 decent lines that can all contribute and we haven't had that in a long, long time. We have a strong net presence and forecheck! I can't believe I just used those words! Our defense is the weakest part of our team but there were many positive things there as well. Give them some time to gain experience, get Weber back, waive Alzner and we will be okay. We don't have a whole lot in the way of skill but our team is looking better than I expected.
  9. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    8 million offer sheet to Nylander would cost us a 1st, 2nd, 3rd pick. As Cucumber said, if the first game is any indication then we are not a bottom team and are going to fight for a playoff spot. I would be comfortable with this offer sheet. Leafs would match and that would set them up for long term trouble. A Mathews offer sheet would cost us 4 1st round picks which is a lot! but it would screw the leafs completely and set us up with deep centre depth. Mathews - K2 - Poehling = YUM We actually are in a position to cause the leafs much grief and Nylander, Mathews or Marner would really help us. Interesting proposition
  10. Byron Re-signed - 4 yr, 13.6

    I think this is good value for what he does and there is a strong possibility that he will keep getting better.
  11. Could our lineup look like this

    That first line will give teams fits. Talk about speed to burn!
  12. Max Pacioretty traded to Vegas

    I am very happy that this is over and I'm very happy that we got a good return. Our team is very different than it was last year and we have some extra parts that can potentially land us a useful LD Curious who plays where this year
  13. Max Pacioretty Watch

    The best thing would be to trade him before the season starts to avoid the circus but MB has screwed this up so badly I don't have much hope. Unless Max can have a super year then I expect a really bad return. MB has crapped the bed on this and many other things. He should not be defended by anyone and it is a wonder that some people do indeed defend him. Fire him right this second please
  14. Max Pacioretty Watch

    Our only hope at this point is for Max to have his best season ever...50+ goals and then get a decent rental return for him. This whole thing is a mess

    Brian Burke's Truckulence says hi But we are trouble down the middle and on the back end probably worse than any other team right now
