I'd like to see what Poehling can do for some time in the top 6 while he is playing solid and confident hockey. They could move Lehky with Suzuki and Cousins with Thompson and put Poehling with Domi and Armia until some bodies get back for a few games.

Is it already a done deal that we should have taken Hughes over Kotka?  I hope Kotka can return to the lineup soon, and I also hope we didn't draft another Philip Danault #3 overall.  Love Danault, but he's not quite the star we want with a top pick.

 

Who would you rather have going forward, Pettersson and Hughes or Eichel and Dahlin?  Those are the top two young #1C and #1D combos that came to mind (I suppose you could do Matthews - Reilly, but Reilly isn't as young anymore).

Price needs to save that.

 

It looked like perfect placement, off the corner of the post and crossbar.

Yea, if gallagher would have had that finish it would have been a perfect shot. 

 

Where has the habs offense gone, 

 

Who would have thought a tatar penalty would have wound up in the back of the net

Hes 19... he could be playing in the world juniors... but instead hes been in the NHL for the last year and a bit.

 

Lets give some time before anything is a done deal.

 

This is coming from someone who was quite vocal that Hughes was #3 on my board and who I would have taken.  Right now, that assessment may look good for me.. but i know this isnt a final determination til both players have had 4 or 5 years in the nhl.

It was a amazing shot but unobstructed from distance.

In Habs game bingo, "Lehkonen misses an offensive opportunity" is the free square.

 

I like the kid, and really appreciate some of the things he uniquely brings to the table, but every time i see him in a top 6 position where he would be required to produce, instead of a 3rd line shut down role where production is a bonus, I just feel like...

Always are lots of habs fans on these western swings.  Many habs fans in vancity, stampedetown, oilcountry and the pit of despair.

Cousins is a sniper and Domi is turning it on lately with the passing skills.

Good review by Claude but Reilly is still terrible for the way he chased that puck... looked like worse than a ####ing peewee player. Ive seen kids with more defensive discipline.

1st game back after sitting for 8.

 

I mean, he is terrible, but he's got an excuse for at least a game.

First game or not, hes still terrible...

 

But Armia on the other hand is such a handful. I really like him.

He chased the puck all around the ice.  First game back or not... play your position
