  1. After splitting a pair in Manitoba, Laval is back home for a key divisional game against Syracuse. (Lines based on last game's +/- data and some guesses with some recent recalls on their back end.) Lines TBD Dauphin – Evans – Hudon Peca – Varone – Barber Alain – Vejdemo – Jevpalovs Pezzetta – Lynch Olofsson – Ouellet Alzner - Brook Leskinen – Folin McEneny Primeau Puck drop is at 7:00 PM EST. 91.9 Sports has the coverage in French while RDS is also showing the game.
  2. An update on the ECHL team in Trois-Rivieres bid - it looks like February 7th will be a key date: https://www.lenouvelliste.ca/actualites/colisee-un-ultimatum-au-7-fevrier-57a0b19a0340e8005ac5679daa9141f0
  3. Larry Walker gets in the Hall of Fame in his final year of eligibility.
  4. His agent (Pat Brisson) has ruled out extension talks for the time being, saying it's too premature to get into that this quickly: https://www.tvasports.ca/2020/01/19/les-gens-veulent-une-star
  5. He didn't quite give up $10M. Most of his money for this season had already been paid via signing bonus so he was only foregoing the league minimum salary which is what the Habs gave him (that was the whole delay in releasing him as he wouldn't agree to it until his bonus was paid). His $4.25M salary for next year is what he really walked away from.
  6. A total of five Latvian-born goaltenders have played in the NHL. Two of them have made the last two starts for Columbus in Elvis Merzlikins and Matiss Kivlenieks. (The others are Arturs Irbe, Peter Skudra, and Kristers Gudlevskis.)
  7. So this one didn't go too well. 5-1 Manitoba is the final, Brook had the lone goal on the power play.
  8. Kinkaid for Primeau is the only change for this one which means that Josh Brook will play on the right wing for the second straight game while serving as a hedge against one of Alzner/Folin getting hurt. Wouldn't it have made more sense to call one of those two up to sit over the bye week and allow Brook to actually play defence?
  9. Weise was sent back to Laval after last night's game. It'll be interesting to see if he actually winds up playing next week (they're already up against the veteran rule) or if this was just done to extend his waiver exemption a little longer.
  10. I suppose having the lead after 40 minutes isn't too bad but yeesh, that was a rough period.
  11. He's actually still an RFA and he has enough NHL experience that he doesn't qualify for Group VI status. Now having said that, if he has no future with the Habs, they'll probably non-tender him to let him get a shot somewhere else.
  12. Laval goes with 11/7 today which is a bit of a surprise: Apparently Alzner and Folin aren't 100% healthy so they went with 7 D just in case. Brook was scheduled to sit with William Pelletier playing but Brook is taking some shifts as a forward as well. Yannick Veilleux has to sit due to the veteran rule. 1-0 Laval in the 2nd, Hudon has the goal.
  13. He's also sitting tonight and sat one of the other recent games when Peca played. It's not the giveaway that has him in the doghouse - I think he was there for a while beforehand and Julien seems to trust Weise more than him for the time being. I can't say I agree with that decision but that's what it looks like.
  14. Laval has flown from snowy Quebec to...snowier Manitoba as they take on the Moose for a pair of games. Matthew Peca should be in after being sent down earlier in the week. (Lines based on last game and some guesses.) Vejdemo - Evans - Hudon Peca - Varone - Barber Alain - Dauphin - Waked Pezzetta - Lynch - Jevpalovs Olofsson - Ouellet Leskinen - McEneny Alzner - Brook Kinkaid (Lines based on last game's +/- data and some guesses with some recent recalls on their back end.) Vesalainen - L. Shaw - Griffith Chibisov - Suess - McKenzie Luoto - Maier - Lipon White - Spacek - Reichel Oligny - Kovacevic Beaudoin - Stanley H. Shaw - Gawanke Comrie Puck drop is at 3:00 PM EST for both games. 91.9 Sports has the coverage in French.
  15. The scenario you bolded is that they'd lose him for free in the Expansion Draft; Seattle isn't paying firsts and seconds in back-to-back years if they're taking his contract off Montreal's books.
