  1. Wow, that is the definition of an easy win. Just need 0.33 goaltending to secure a win.
  2. I'm not convinced that there is such a thing as clutch players but if you do believe in it then Price has to be one of the best clutch players around. His performance in elimination games in the playoffs and olympics recently is unparalleled. I definitely think he is worth 10 million a year. Plus I don't know how we are supposed to acquire this mythical 8 million dollar forward except by trading Price.
  3. People advocating for MT to be fired should realize that we may get Lefebvre as his replacement. If you think we need a new coach, who should it be?

  5. 10th Annual HabsWorld season prediction contest. Hall of Fame: 2006-2007 Jean won with a prediction of 92 points when the Habs finished the year with 90 pts. If only we could have won that last game. 2007-2008 Adirondack Bud exactly predicted our final total of 104 pts. 2008-2009 Zowpeb won by predicting a strong start followed by a slower 2nd half ending with 99 points. The Habs finished the season in 8th place with 93 points. On September 22, 2008 Zowpeb predicted "I think we'll see a rough patch just past the mid-year point..." Wow! 2009-2010 Joelassister correctly predicted the
  6. Okay my french isn't too bad for an anglo but I am baffled by RDS's advanced stats. What are a) tirs de l'enclave (and passes vers l'enclave)? b) cadres ?
  7. Are you sure about this Stogey? It would be about $100 bucks if you get 3 months free and then 3 more months but my experience leads me to suspect that you will have to sign up for a minimum of 1 year. So you'd get 3 free months and then have to pay for 9 more.
  8. Great. That might be why I don't remember it. Thanks.
  9. Watching the Chicago/Nashville game, Chicago's backup goalie Darling is in. The announcers just said that he played for the Bulldogs 3 years ago. Is that correct, I don't remember him.
  10. Yes the winner is nihliz who predicted 50-23-5-4 for 109 points while the Habs record was 50-22-5-5 for 110 points. Honourable mentions to nhfarber who predicted 49-23-4-6 for 108 points and to sakiqc who predicted 51-26-1-4 for 107 points The Habs had a great regular season, but many HW members expected this. Well done!
  11. Thanks. I'll bask in my fame for the rest of the season at least.
  12. During our last game against the Canucks, there was a video review of a play when Price stopped the puck on the goal line. The video review started after the linesman had dropped the puck and play had resumed. I haven't seen anyone else comment on this. I was screaming at Therrien to complain before the review was complete. So yesterday I wrote to C'mon Ref! and Fraser answered me.

  14. I think they will send Tokarski down. Extremely unlikely he'll be claimed. Then you have Budaj as your backup playing a few games. If Price gets hurt they can call up Tokarski and use whoever looks better. Budaj is better suited to being in the dressing room and not playing. Tokarski benefits more from playing for Hamilton. The only thing pointing the other way is the incredible number of back-to-back games we have this season.

  16. Just want to say what an excellent article this is. I really appreciate a rational analysis.
  17. DLR will be coming to North America next year! http://www.hockeysverige.se/2014/06/03/nu-har-jacob-de-la-rose-gjort-sitt-val/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
  18. Ahhh.. Whoops, huzer is right I confused the two entries. Meller93 got the record exactly right (46-28-5-3). thehabbit predicted 46-28-4-4 which is damn close. Meller93 is the real winner. A thousand apologies (especially to thehabbit and Meller93). Mea culpa. (thanks to huzer for pointing out my error) When I think how close we came to burning thehabbit rather than Meller93 my hair stands on end.
  19. We have our winner: thehabbit Meller93 exactly predicted the Habs final record 46-28-5-3. Congratulations!!!
  20. Well only one game left and it will decide who wins the prediction contest. The Habs currently have a record of 45-28-5-3 for 98 points and sit 3rd in the Atlantic Division and 10th in the league. We will finish either 2nd or 3rd in the division and anywhere from 8th to 11th in the league. This year's predictions were especially good with 7 (out of 18) HW members predicting either 98, 99 or 100 points. If the Habs win tonight they will finish with 100 points. Meller93, thehabbit and nhfarber all predicted 100 points. But any type of win tonight will mean that thehabbit's predicted seas
  21. What is Therrien thinking???? We had a faceoff in the Preds zone with 72 seconds left but he won't pull Price until we gain control??? Of course, the faceoff was scrummed and the puck fought for along the board for 10 seconds before Nashville got it and cleared the zone. We never got control of the puck in their zone for the rest of the game. Even if we lose the faceoff with 72 seconds left we still are better off with 6 skaters.
  22. Sure you might win 80% of the time. But when you win you save maybe 2 million per year for 8 years but when you lose you could be losing 8 million a year for 8 years. So its a lot closer than is sounds when you say you win 80% of the time. I prefer always using a bridge contract. In the end you have your player locked up longer if you want them, You have to pay for this but I'd rather have players getting what they are worth than have 4 guys 25% under paid and 1 guy vastly over paid.
