  1. The season at the 20% mark

    Id continue to let him dominate the ahl. No point to call him up for 4th line duty.

  4. Game#21 Nov 19 2018 7:30 Caps vs Habs

    They are playing Benn on the top pair, against the Caps top line. Thats the biggest issue. Benn looks fine on the third pair with weaker competition... but you can't expect to put Benn on the ice against Ovechkin's line or Backstrom's line all game long. He just can't do it. I'm fine if he's traded cause we have a log jam of third pairing d. Its the lack of top 4 D that is killer. We have 2 right now... Petry and Reilly (barely, but he can do the job).... Weber back will help. But we need one more to step up.... Mete is young and not ready... Benn is a third pair guy at best, same with Ouellet, Schlemko, Alzner, etc...

    Dont believe anything Jimmy Murphy says. Hes a fraud. Lebrun i would trust.
  6. The season at the 20% mark

    Hes not going to improve by sending him away to play against junior aged players though. Thats not the way to develop a guy who is clearly proving to be an effective NHLer as the youngest guy in the league. You need to keep playing him against the best players in the world and slowly increasing his challenges with more minutes and harder competition... but it will be a process.

    They would have lost a lot worse without price. D gave up way too many high quality chances.

    Peca signed for a million bucks... marginal 4th liner money. What hype?
  9. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    Team canada is so deep there are almost no locks. That said he would need to be a disaster in camp to get cut.

  16. If Price was right that it was just a mental issue, a game like this restores a lot of confidence
  17. The entire team (except Price) is playing like shit
  18. The Impact of Shea Weber

    Weber at 70% is probably the Habs second best defenceman, i agree. That said, I still want to temper my own expectations of what differences he's going to make.
  19. Carey Price

    1) He doesn't play head to head with Lundqvist. The goalie isn't taking shots on the other goalie. If Lundqvist plays great in the other end, (and no doubt he did), that isn't Price's fault. That is the shooters on the Habs not being good enough. I can't blame a goalie with a .933 save percentage in a series for losing. He gave his team every opportunity to win the series. That they didn't is not the goalies fault, its the players in front of him. 2) The downward trajectory did not start before the 2017 playoffs. That is again revisionist history. Did he play shitty last season? sure. Has he been shit this year? Yes. His last 4 starts in particular have been a disaster (he had a .922 save percentage after the Boston game). But that doesn't mean we need to say 2016-17 was a bad season... it clearly wasn't.
  20. The Impact of Shea Weber

    The only question i have is how long it will take him to be Shea Weber after a year off. I dont think we should expect him to be 100% right away.
  21. Nov. 13, Canadiens vs Oilers, 9 PM

    I don't expect a backup to give up 1 bad goal per period.
  22. Nov. 13, Canadiens vs Oilers, 9 PM

    He's also scoring plenty for a third line centre so that complaint also doesn't make sense. the Habs have the most 5v5 goals of any team in the league. Clearly the depth scoring here is not an issue. I'd also add that Kotkaniemi has made a number of passes that should have been goals and his wingers haven't finished as he doesn't have the best wingers with him. PP, defence, goaltending.... those are the issues right now.
