    They looked defeated, that's for sure. I don't know about playing like they wanted out. Sometimes, one player may look like they're doing that but a full team (or close to that) probably isn't likely. Considering this was half an hour ago, I'm not 100% sure that the penalty kill is what you were referring to but he played the whole 5-on-3 plus the rest of the Alzner penalty. He looked completely out of gas which may have contributed to some of those weak clearing attempts.
  2. Mete to the World Juniors

    Not a surprise by any stretch but Mete survived the first round of cuts today, including two of the 11 defencemen.
  3. Why does Trevor Timmins get so much love?

    We had a guest writer evaluate Timmins back in 2016 which covered 2003-2013 with a favourable conclusion: http://www.habsworld.net/2016/09/has-trevor-timmins-beaten-the-odds/

    I'm happy the Habs aren't losing but coming off of getting spanked on Saturday, that was a terrible start. They got better as the period went on but I was hoping for more jump from them than they've shown so far.
  5. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    I think so too (I'm not sure he'd have made it but I think he'd have got a look).

    Ikonen signs a one-year extension to stay in the Finnish League: https://www.prohockeyrumors.com/2017/12/joni-ikonen-signs-one-year-extension-in-finland.html
  7. Mete to the World Juniors

    Both of them seem pretty safe to make it (especially Poehling). Some people thought Cayden Primeau would get a look for the US but that was a longshot at best (next year could be a different story though if he keeps this up).
  8. Mete to the World Juniors

    No, he's not a lock (no player officially is at this point) but he should be pretty safe here. Playing largely regular minutes in the NHL should be a nice tie-breaker if he finds himself in a dogfight for a roster spot.
  9. It's going to be a slow week so we may as well give this its own discussion. The Habs have loaned Mete to Team Canada for the WJCs. By waiting until now to do so, they reserve the right to recall him once the tournament concludes (or earlier if he's cut which doesn't seem likely). http://www.habsworld.net/2017/12/habs-loan-victor-mete-for-the-world-juniors/
  10. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    So would I. But why would Buffalo? If they move a guy like O'Reilly, it's probably either for futures or for a top-flight defenceman.
  11. Scherbak has been sent down so he must be close to being able to return.
  12. Dec. 9, Oilers vs Habs, 7 PM

    Nice to see Carr's point streak continue at least as he got an assist on the Danault goal.
  13. Injury news

    I missed this yesterday but Montoya skated before practice on Friday.
  14. Dec. 9, Oilers vs Habs, 7 PM

    With Brossoit being as bad as he has been, the Habs still have a slight chance but they'll need an early one to stay in it.
  15. Dec. 9, Oilers vs Habs, 7 PM

    No lineup changes other than Drouin for de la Rose. I had wondered if Mete would get back in after Jerabek struggled at times last game (particularly in terms of giveaways, something he has had a penchant for doing in Laval).
