  1. Vasilevksy is giving nothing here. Might need a couple of greasy ones to tie this up.
  2. Gender: Nerd Location: Nerdville Favourite Habs: Playoff PDO Bender
  3. Analysis? Advanced? This is a forum of NEEEEEEEEEEEERDS! We're obviously losing because of Kulak.
  4. Ya Commandant, get inspired to stop being informed on hockey players! Comm looks at advanced stats? Neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerd!
  5. Ya, but has he cured cancer? Useless.
  6. No dude, it's cause you're constantly pessimistic and antagonistic, and your posts about Bergevin are usually at best unnecessarily exaggerated, or at worst grossly uninformed. The anti-Bergevin shtick probably worked for you when the team was shit for a season. Since then most fans have been happy with the team's progress and the job Bergevin has done with the rebuild/retool. So you can keep on proudly conducting the Bergevin-Hate train that most Habs fans have stopped riding, but your pettiness towards those of us who are enjoying this team is tiresome.
  7. Can we sign a player in the middle of their NCAA season and bring them to the AHL? Asking for a friend Bergevin.
  8. St Louis should have challenged that. Not challenging puts them down by 2. If they win the challenge they're down by one. If they lose they're down by 2 and take a penalty. At this point it's better to take 2 minutes of risking going down by 3 for the chance to only be down by 1.
  9. Guys, crazy thought and I'm just spitballin' here, but what if the Habs get a lead... and then keep that lead for the rest of the game?
  10. Noah Juulsen was sent to Laval. Hopefully he gets into game shape pretty quickly. I'd love to see a Kulak-Juulsen pairing asap.
  11. It took 2 bad bounces, a shot screened by his own player, and a 180 ft empty netter to score... but this still feels like a game the Habs should have won. The useless penalties have been killer. If Cousins is still injured I wouldn't be shocked to see a callup from Laval so Julien can start sitting guys instead of just dropping them down the lineup.
  12. I didn't see who hit Weal in the head, but with no call on the ice that's gotta be a fine or suspension right?
  13. Not 100% sure, but I think Tatar got knocked down the lineup in favour of Lehkonen in the 3rd. Not a full sitting, but definitely a message sent.
  14. Malkin and Bjugstad are out long term for the Pens, Malkin longer than Bjugstad. Galchenyuk finally gonna be a top 6 centerman?
  15. Well to start you need to shift your mindset to a bleak, pessimistic one where the grass is always greener elsewhere. Then, and this key here Will, make statements without actually researching or backing them up with facts. And if you happen to trip over a good point, make sure you exaggerate it to make it worse so it can't be taken seriously anyway. Why be accurate when you can be hyperbolic? And that is how 90% of East got better, the Habs got soooooo much worse, and the worst case scenario is the only scenario. Now you're ready to take it to the next level, Will: smash that downvote button on anyone that dares to disagree with you. It's that little extra exclamation point to the sky-is-always-falling bullshit.
  16. Past 2 years. Habs finished 1st in the East 3 years ago. As to what makes this year any different: a better backup goalie could help the team bank a few more points, an improved Kotkaniemi could help the team bank a few more points, a 4th line that Julien can trust with minutes from Game 1 instead of Game 65 should bank a few more points, a weakened Metro division should help the Habs secure a wildcard, and numerous other reasons leave open the possibility of a strong placement within the Atlantic. None of it is a sure thing, but most of the other teams aren't a sure thing either. I'm definitely not convinced the Devils improved by 25+ points this offseason, nor the Rangers by 20, or that Columbus will be anywhere close to the playoffs after they got gutted, or that Pittsburgh is better with Galchenyuk and Tanev instead of Kessel, or that Hart will be steady for 50 games as a 21 year old goalie with pedestrian AHL numbers, or that Kreuger can make Ullmark/Hutton a good goaltending tandem for Buffalo, all while every possible thing that can go wrong for Montreal does to put them 20+ points worse and in the bottom 3 of the conference.
  17. All that time spent at the bench strategizing for that 4 on 3 powerplay, and Muller might as well have written, "Weber shoots" in crayon. 3 creative playmakers out there and the best this team can come up with is a lazy pass to Weber from the same spot, to the same spot, with nobody in front of the net. ... Glad the Habs came back and got 2 points.
  18. It can be argued that Shaw would do more for the Habs this season than Suzuki will, but for the team's better future it's good to play the rookies now. Habs got within 3 points of the playoffs on the backs of ~10 players having career years, so a step back this season is not unthinkable. In the Atlantic the Habs could finish anywhere from 2nd to 6th.
  19. Noah Juulsen was officially placed on IR by the Habs, while McCarron, Teasdale, and Olofsson were put on SOIR.
  20. Weise - $1 750 000 Peca - $1 300 000 Hudon - $800 000 Alzner - $4 625 000 Lindgren $750 000 $9 225 000 worth of one way contracts in the AHL.
