  1. The PK is fantastic, what are you in high school statistics? I didn’t say they should run around and goon it up. I said they retaliate with pain instead of hugging and threats since the refs and league are not doing their jobs. Damn, you like to make broad assumptions and put words into people’s mouths. I specifically said they should enact that nastiness when other teams take liberties, which has already started and will continue as habs dominate against same teams over and over and rivalries, bitterness sink in. nowhere’s did I say they should get a one-dimensional goon li
  2. Haha he is a victim of bad past rosters. He played way more games than he should have by this point in his career. But I dislike any player coming out in public asking for trade or whining in general. If as he says, it was his agent acting solely, fire his ass and make a statement as such. so, I don’t think that was the truth and I believe Mete just doesn’t have the balls to own up to it now. if he had value he’d be playing or gone. Write this off to a bad investment, gonna be hard to bury the hatchet on this one. The rest of team is clicking, playing some of best
  3. I mean nasty as in.. Dube gets plowed over, mounted and pummelled as soon as he hits KK. if it had been CP31 instead of Jack Campbell that was jumped on by Tkchachuk I would gladly accept the 3 game suspension for Chiarot or Eddy to destroy his face. No warnings, no pushing, just blows to the head. that’s what I mean by nasty. no warning, no three strikes, no waiting on refs/league, only a disproportionate amount of pain is what the offender gets. Habs will just score on PK anyways and opponents know the price to take liberties.
  4. I agree with this description of Kulak. and that of Mete. Can’t say I recall many times cursing Kulak in past 40 games or so, I curse Mete every time he plays.
  5. Think he listened to you and appeared to be trying to jump the play, carry puck out of d zone, but didn’t have a ton a success. ... and then was noticeable on a couple D zone breakdowns and well... hard to argue he deserves a spot over any of the other 6.
  6. Agreed. Don’t think he did that last night.
  7. Noticed his patented wrister didn’t even make Byron flinch when it hit him haha.
  8. Just noticed him jumping up more last night, seemed to be pushing to be noticed more than usual.
  9. Personally, yes I think they are a capable, cup-winning quality d corps. Edmundson has been settling in nicely lately. Chairot, Weber, Petry continue to be reliable and productive. Romanov has come as advertised, can’t even consider him a rookie he is so solid (Kulak has been great partner for him IMO). Kulak continues to be a solid, value depth dman. Mete is great 7th man who can add speed dynamic depending on matchups, but he doesn’t fit the style, mild of the rest of d corps so will always be odd man out. He needs to be sheltered by a Weber or Petry and that mit
  10. While I agree, I don’t think it would be fair to not give Mete some more game time. Can’t let your players wither on the vine, if only to showcase him for trade or keep him sharp for when injuries occur. He was flying, but was trying to force the play too much. Agreed, Kulak is better suited to third pairing role and as support for Romanov than Mete is. And also think Kulak has more value overall, not a fan of Mete but do see his value in a sheltered role, partnered with a strong, steady partner. No room for that on this years habs tho.
  11. I agree. He was in a tough spot, but Vancouver wasn’t scoring from behind Habs net so Mete shouldn’t have abandoned the crease when Van had possession and Mete had no net-front support. He made a bad call to abandon net front. He should have identified that he had no support and the threat from behind the net is not worth chasing. That said, his speed was noticeable and effective at pushing back Vancouver d when he joined the rush, but he was forcing it trying to be a difference maker and he is not a difference maker. having had such a long stretch between games for him, yo
  12. The entire league is not in game shape for first four games this season so that is a level playing field and invalid defence of his poor play. what was different for him due to his illness this offseason? Almost all players were unable to train on-ice at any normal level and majority of players were not able to access the usual team gyms, local gyms, etc anyways due to pandemic. so, again seems a pretty level playing field all around and does not defend his poor play. he’s been playing with this illness his whole life and while I know he has to be extra cautious, he wasn’t held
  13. Toffoli is not out playing Anderson by any means. They are both playing well and to their respective strengths. Edmundson/Petry are not out playing first pairing. what have you been watching? Perry has zero experience on left wing and is barely up to speed as is. your lines and analysis suck.

  15. Haha I can kinda see it except he is bigger, faster and more involved. hopefully he also lasts longer and contributes more!
  16. he is barely playing average minutes (15/game max) getting all zeroes across the stat sheet most nights (1a, -5) and was promptly demoted down the lineup within first four games. If he isn’t is game shape compared the short camp all players had, then that is on him. Even if, neither him nor Anderson score again, the Habs won the deal just by adding the physicality, speed and truculence that Anderson brings, things the Habs needed/need. what is garbage is this article of pure speculation and garbage research. Completely ignores anything that has happened since
  17. And no, you can’t say that without being insulting. good job I don’t really care.
  18. Chiarot blew it on the game winner, totally overplayed the puck carrier. let the goalie have the shooter on a 2 on 1, he cost us the game there. If he’d let Price gave Tavares and taken away the pass I would bet on Price to make the save.
  19. Anderson played like Anderson, def early but he played as expected.
  20. Don’t know why foolish given how early on and many people saying Domi will thrive with CBJ?
  21. So far so good with Anderson. That size and speed is going to be exciting. I see Domi played fourth line minutes for CBJ last night, early returns seems to favour les Habs on this one.
