  1. Habs vs Rangers - 7:30 EST

    Juulsen has certainly been active tonight. I like what I've seen from him so far.
  2. Permanent Rumour Thread

    I can think of two pretty significant ones (players with more established track records than Plekanec) off the top of my head. And in today's episode of Where in the World is Marc Bergevin, he finds himself with Scott Mellanby watching Minnesota-New Jersey.

    Nice job, Trizz. Niemi gets the start while Juulsen will make his NHL debut. Rick Nash and Michael Grabner will also be out for the Rangers as the team gets closer to trading them.
  4. Feb. 20, Habs vs Flyers

    So - who is taking the GDT for Thursday's game against the Rangers? New York's goalie will be making his NHL debut.

    Petry has a full no-move clause. He isn't going anywhere.

    LeBrun on Plekanec: https://theathletic.com/248204/2018/02/21/lebrun-jim-rutherford-may-not-be-done-trying-to-improve-penguins-and-other-trade-deadline-notes/
  8. Jeremiah Addison practiced for the first time today since undergoing shoulder surgery in the preseason. He's still a ways from returning but hopefully, he'll be able to play a bit down the stretch.

    Philly hasn't had a power play against them in three games. That's quite impressive, actually.
  10. Feb. 20, Habs vs Flyers

    A sluggish start for the Habs, considering they're facing an unproven netminder. The Plekanec line has had a good start so far. On the goal, how often does a defenceman for the attacking team wind up being the screener? That wasn't a normal spot for Petry to be.
  11. Come on, guys, this shouldn't have to be a hassle to get someone to start a GDT. If it's this close to game time and there isn't one, start one. vs Puck drop is 25 minutes from now.
  12. For me, it's not that he's having the best season of his career, it's that he had a good six-week stretch. Beyond that, he has been his usual self and that had him clearing waivers back in October. Generally speaking, I don't like players getting early raises based on a good short sample when his career numbers suggest he will revert back to being a fringe player. My guess is that if he was to continue the way he has played over the last month to the end of the season (a likely scenario given his history), he'd have had a hard time finding much interest around the league in free agency, especially at a raise.
  13. I agree - I was expecting an extension to be closer to his current salary than this. It's not a massive overpayment by any stretch but if they're tight to the cap next season, that little bit could make a difference. It's also more than possible that Deslauriers reverts to his 2016-17 form. A case can be made that he already has based on his performance over the last month. Interestingly enough, there is a signing bonus in each year of the contract: 18-19: $200K bonus, $750K salary 19-20: $100K bonus, $850K salary If he winds up reverting to his previous level that saw him get waived out of the league, having part of his salary paid down via the bonus might help entice someone else to take him.
