  1. Oct. 17, Habs vs Sharks, 10:30 PM

    That's what I get for doing the GDT half asleep early in the morning. I've fixed it. His last regular season game was in January but he played in five of their six playoff games in April.
  2. Montreal Canadiens (1-3-1) Projected Lineup Max Pacioretty - Jonathan Drouin - Artturi Lehkonen Paul Byron - Tomas Plekanec - Brendan Gallagher Charles Hudon - Phillip Danault - Andrew Shaw Alex Galchenyuk - Torrey Mitchell - Ales Hemsky Victor Mete - Shea Weber Karl Alzner - Jeff Petry Joe Morrow - Brandon Davidson Carey Price Al Montoya Injuries: David Schlemko Scratches: Jordie Benn, Jacob de la Rose San Jose Sharks (1-3-0) Projected Lineup Kevin Labanc - Joe Thornton - Joe Pavelski Tomas Hertl - Logan Couture - Melker Karlsson Timo Meier - Chris Tierney - Mikkel Boedker Barclay Goodrow - Ryan Carpenter - Joel Ward Marc-Edouard Vlasic - Justin Braun Joakim Ryan - Brent Burns Brendon Dillon - Tim Heed Martin Jones Aaron Dell Injuries: Paul Martin Scratches: Dylan DeMelo, Joonas Donskoi, Jannik Hansen Leaders Montreal San Jose Game Notes Goals 7 tied with (1) Labanc (3) Puck Drop: 10:30 PM EST Assists Alzner/Drouin (2) 3 tied with (2) National TV: NBCSN Points Drouin (3) Labanc (4) Regional TV: TSN2, RDS PIMS Hemsky (8) Labanc (6) English Radio: TSN 690 +/- 7 tied at (-1) Donskoi (+2) French Radio: FM 98.5
  3. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    He's had three good years, his last two in Boston and one in Colorado (48, 44, and 51 points) but has fallen off a cliff since. If he didn't have two years left after this, I'd be intrigued as a buy-low reclamation project but that contract is one that could be a buyout candidate next summer. It's also probably worth noting that he can't see particularly well out of his left eye.
  4. Injury news

    Schlemko was activated off IR but isn't with the team in San Jose and there is no timetable for his return. Worth noting, because they technically activated him, putting him back on IR would force him to miss all of this week.
  5. Permanent Rumour Thread

    I wonder if he's taking a look at de Haan. He's a rental blueliner but he'd help stabilize the left side and provide a hedge in case Mete falters as the season progresses.
  6. Mark Streit on waivers

    That's assuming they've been paying him since he refused to report to the minors (which they aren't obligated to do).
  7. A pretty good game from the Habs overall. Price still isn't quite right which is a bit concerning heading out West where it usually takes a miracle for Montreal to win a game, regardless of how they're playing heading into the trip.
  8. His positioning was way off on the second goal, not square to the shot and he over-pushed. It was still a nice shot but Price gave him a ton of open space to shoot at. Nice to see Galchenyuk actually shoot the puck instead of looking for the pass. He's a good playmaker but he's also a good shooter and the Habs need goal scoring threats.
  9. Oct. 13/14, Binghamton vs Laval

    5-1 is the final: https://theahl.com/stats/game-summary/1017161 And to make matters worse, Scherbak suffered a lower-body injury.
  10. Oct. 13/14, Binghamton vs Laval

    3-1 Binghamton after 2 despite the fact that Laval is more than tripling them in shots (30-9). Jerabek is having a horrible game - he has played a big role in two of the goals against and has made several very soft plays. On the plus side, most of the forwards have played well - McCarron had a really dumb penalty (which seems to be a game-by-game pattern in the early going) but has looked pretty good otherwise.
  11. Who's to blame when it comes to Galchenyuk?

    Downvoting a single post from time to time is fine. Downvoting a large sequence all at once is where people tend to get their backs up. That's not a double standard, that's two different situations entirely. And no, just because someone calls you out does not make everything fair game. And if I didn't make it clear earlier, it stops here (not just for you either to make that as clear as possible). If you still have questions or concerns, I'd appreciate it if you would send me a PM and that way we can allow the thread to get back on track.
  12. Oct. 13/14, Binghamton vs Laval

    Today's lines, which still feature a wrongly-spelt Scherbak: Gelinas, Deslauriers, Petti, Bourque, and Baun are in, replacing Schlemko, Holland, Reway, Parisi, and Broll. I'm wondering if Holland is the standby player if Plekanec can't go tonight for the Habs (they'll likely want an extra forward in case someone's hurt in warmups).
  13. Who's to blame when it comes to Galchenyuk?

    No, it was not just directed at you although in hindsight I could have specified that clearer and I apologize for giving you that impression. It's quite common for me to respond to one post with a comment that the personal potshots aren't wanted instead of quoting both posters or posting their names/usernames specifically. Frankly, I shouldn't have to post it - it should be well known already. Regarding the downvoting, yes, that was directed at you as it's pretty evident that you went on a spree where you downvoted everyone that disagreed with you. There's no firm rule against that but it's petty and typically not well-received on here. It's your prerogative if you want to keep doing that but be prepared for the complaints that typically follow someone who does that.
  14. Who's to blame when it comes to Galchenyuk?

    Did I really need to quote a post from both you and him to get the point across? I chose yours because I wanted to respond to your suggestion saying that any reasonable person can see he has been on a downward spiral for a while now. The first couple of pages in this thread show that it's not necessarily obvious that he has been on a downward spiral for several years like you believe. At the very least, there's a fair discussion to be had that goes beyond suggesting that anyone who doesn't see things my way is automatically unreasonable. To do that, I had to quote your post and while I was at it, added in the bit about not making it personal. That wasn't just directed at you.
  15. Who's to blame when it comes to Galchenyuk?

    Just because someone doesn't see this situation the same way you do doesn't automatically make them unreasonable, nor does it require getting personal (or downvoting anyone who disagrees with you). This has actually been a very good thread so far with quite a few good points made, I'd hate to see it spiral in the wrong direction.
