I know it is only November, but given their place in the standings and the fact we're playing the Sabers, I fell like this is must win game.

I’ll be scouting St Cloud while the Habs are playing tonight. Go Habs!

It looks like the former Habs could play together tonight as Gorges will be in for Antipin on Buffalo's back end.

Good job by Benn stepping up there for Gallagher!

Kind of a scrappy period. I thought BUF was somewhat the better team over 20 minutes, and the score reflected that. Alzner let O'Byrne just stand there on the goal, which is too bad. Good to see Galy and Drouin flying, though.

Lucky to be down only 1.. I thought they'd play better after the fight but it was all Sabres.

Both Romanuk and Don Cherry have blown vocal chords, man. It's like listening to guys gargling bleach

4 periods without a goal...need to pick it up.  Max is looking like a big lazy turd out there again...I wish one of the Sabres would punch him in the head and maybe wake him up.

I think you have one letter too many at the beginning of the word scrappy...

Penalty aside, Galchenyuk has been looking way better.

This game is a royal stinker. Need a better 3rd period

When the Habs have got possession in Buffalo's end, they've been able to get the cycle game going and have looked pretty good at those times.  They just aren't doing a great job of getting control established in that zone and they look scrambly in their own end.

Lehkonen hasn't been good enough offensively 

 

If this is Lindgren, you trade Carey Price.

Lindgren got lucky tonight. Pile of rebounds. He looked shaky early on. I feel the better team lost tonight. Montreal did not have enough crisp passes.

Don't forget, Mike Condon had a really nice run early to start his career as well before things went back to normal.  That's bound to happen to Lindgren here as the league gets more of a book on him.  Lindgren's not ready to become the undisputed starter for the Habs yet or anytime soon.

To the first part, I think he would benefit from being placed on a lower line... maybe switch Gallagher and Lehkonen?

 

To the second part, players and scouts haven't had a chance to find holes in Lindgren's game yet. He hasn't even played 10 games in the NHL yet. Let's calm our collective #### on trading Carey Price for a bit, no?

Ha ha, let's not trade Carey Price just yet...:lol:

 

The better team lost tonight. A listless, half-assed effort redeemed only by excellent netminding and a truly spectacular display of individual skill by the captain on the GWG.

There's a reason I said IF this is charlie Lindgren, then trade price. 

 

Trust me, I know that this team is Carey price

It is 7 games.  You've got a long way to go before he's an established number 1... like at least 2-3 years.

23 year old Murray took over the starting position in Pitt. How'd that turn out?

 

A trade is not going to happen this year, but if Lindgren manages to get into 30 games and plays as consistent as we've seen.  I honestly think there's decisions to be made in the off season. 

 

In a cap world, those are the type of moves that win you a cup. You'd have to have a giant set of balls to pull it off and it' highly unlikely to happen, but I mean the return for Price would be eye popping. 

 

Like I said, it was only a matter of time before this kid came knocking. You guys are right about it being too early to even talk about any sort of goalie trade, but this is a great thing for Montreal.
