  1. Davidson claimed by Edmonton

    So - is this overall good news for the Habs? Lost an asset, that’s bad. Maybe needed him in Laval, that’s bad. Perhaps a good callup back to the big club, also bad. But if he was never cracking the top 6 with the Habs, is it better his contract is gone?
  2. Sept. 18, Habs vs Bruins, 7 PM

    This off-season has felt like forever. Has August always been so dull? Maybe I just really missed the World Cup.
  3. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Any rumors out there on Markov?
  4. Should we care about Radulov?

    We may have lost Rad for nothing, but we also got him for nothing. At the end of the day, Rad was a carpetbagger who visited us for a year. He gained re-entry into the NHL and the contract he wanted - we got his services for a year.
  5. Dallas vs Montreal 730pm

    I agree that cups is the standard. That standard would keep the likes of Koivu and Markov out of the circle of retired numbers. BUT - if Price continues a few more years on his current trajectory (consistent Vezina contender with another win of the trophy, starter for Team Canada) then I think his number goes up Cup or no Cup.
  6. Ottawa vs Montreal 7:30pm

    My first 2 kids have adopted the Habs as they should have. It did require me to move to Ohio from Toronto to ensure this - but so worth it. My failing is my 3rd child who has become a Ducks fan. For shame. I know. I was playing for a team that wore Ducks jerseys and found one that would fit him as a 1 year old. For cryin out loud he never forgot the d*mn jersey and has had a place in his heart for them ever since. I rue the day I let my 1yr old look cute in that jersey.
  7. Ottawa vs Montreal 7:30pm

    Peter Puck or Hockey Showdown or Howie Meeker ... I enjoyed intermission as a kid.
  8. Habs acquire Dwight King

    Since he hasn't done much since arriving in Montreal (I'm being nice here), I asked one of my friends from LA about him. They said he was simply a cap casualty and were real sad to see him go. All I can hope is that they are correct and his A game is yet to come.
  9. I like Mete too - his skill is hopefully enough to compensate for his size. My point was that Bourque isn't small - he's no giant, but no smurf either.
  10. 6'1" ... that's reasonable imo. Victor Mete at 5'10" is small for an NHL dman.
  11. Habs RE-HIRE Julien FIRE MT!

    Poor poor DD ...
  12. When does Therrien get fired?

    I wonder if MB would consider doing a Gauthier and trade MT during the game ...
  13. Habs to move their AHL affiliate to Laval

    Is it a T below the 9? Laval Titan? and tho it won't ever be a favorite logo, I like it. It seems classic like our CH and away from the cartoony bulldog and the like.
  14. Can Danault possibly be the 2nd line centre going forward?

    Is Danault's play gonna mean we lose him in the expansion draft? I don't think we saw him as someone to protect at the season's start.
  15. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    Was that too many men on the ice penalty legit? looked to me like a hab went on the bench at one end and another jumped on at the other end gaining a bunch of ice as the play was moving back to the Habs end. Officials made numerous dubious calls. Numerous.
  16. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    I don't really want to watch 3 on 3 against the Pens lol
  17. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    Terrible second period. Habs were lucky to tie it up on a deflection. I've lost count on how many oddman rushes the Pens have had. The Habs cannot play this wide-open against the Pens! where is da system!
  18. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    I wrote this before the second goal was scored. He just helped prove it. Now I don't know why he was on the ice so long!!!
  19. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    I can see the Habs defense better this period ... OMG #89!!! Is that Johnston??? Manhandled. Man. Hand. Led.
  20. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    2 on 2 - Weber had the puck carrier ... why Emelin didn't take on Hornqvist, I'll never know. EDIT! Just saw the replay. I'm too hard on Emelin here. Weber was beaten way earlier in the play and it was Byron racing back to try to get the puck carrier before the pass happened.
  21. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    Period recap from my POV in the nosebleeds Byron was buzzing the whole period. Price made 2 crazy saves that had this section groaning. Emelin hit - nice. Weber missed the net on a great chance Pens power play was impressive (last one not so much). Habs had better be done with penalties Beaulieu stood out a few times Happy with Petry Max almost cost a goal by failing to clear a couple times on one shift - looked good in offensive zone tho - so not a bad game so far McCarron had one shift in particular that really showed what we hope he becomes Thats what I got off the top of my head while I wait in line to get my beverage during intermission
  22. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    That was a pretty goal to watch. How often does the chalkboard plan work perfectly! they got the pens right d to bite and then they were chasing. Wish I could see a full replay so I could see whose fake at the blue line did the job for Montreal.
  23. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    I'll be attending this one!
  24. 2017 World Juniors Discussion Thread

    Not seeing any offensive side to Juulsen's game - tho seems like he is pairs with Bean to be the safety net to Bean's riskiness.
  25. Oct. 15 - Habs vs Senators, 7 PM

    I was hoping after Tortorella called out Max at the World Cup that he could come out with a little more jump. Please Max, please, don't prove Torts right!!
