Recommended Posts

First GDT, so take it easy on me please.

 

Canadiens Projected Lineup as per the last scrimmage:

 

Tatar - Danault - Gallagher

Drouin - Suzuki - Anderson

Toffoli - Kotkaniemi - Armia

Byron - Evans - Lehkonen

 

Chiarot - Weber

Edmundson - Petry

Kulak - Romanov

 

Price

Allen

 

Maple Leafs Projected Lineup as per leafsnation:


Thornton - Matthews - Marner

Vesey - Tavares - Nylander

Mikheyev - Kerfoot - Hyman

Barabanov - Spezza - Simmonds

 

Reilly - Brodie

Muzzin - Holl

Dermott - Bogosian

 

Andersen

Campbell

 

Lineups and spelling may be wrong, doing this on an iPhone that makes this tedious.

 

GO HABS GO!!

Really?   I thought it was a bad luck play on the tying goal. Had it not hit the ref, there wouldn't have been a goal. Also, Drouin did get two assists in this game...I wouldn't qualify that

The main thing is to take the crowd out of it early! Oh, wait...🙄

Powerhorse!!!

I don't know that we will be able to keep up with the speed of that Leafs fourth line!

 

Has Lehkonen played all the scrimmage games on his off wing?

Well, we may find out if pre-season games are of any use, hockey wise not just for pocket book of owners.

Will the 1st few games be sloppy, like afternoon games are.

Lehks used to play RW until he came to the Habs.

If I remember correctly, he préfères RW but has shown To also be productive on LW

Love our lineup and line combos as is listed above.  Pretty much what I would choose if given opportunity.

 

Leafs are one of the few teams that are also four lines deep so this will be a big test right out of the gates.

 

Prediction: Leafs come out flying, Price stands tall. Habs weather the storm, gradually take over flow of play and win 4-2 with an empty netter.

Tatar opens scoring for habs.

In some weird way I would prefer Leafs be up 5-1 entering the third and Habs winning 7-5

Would make for some crazy 2nd intermission on how bad the Habs are and vice versa!:P

I just love seeing Leafs fans pump themselves up and then having the air let out

Excited to see what sort of impact Anderson and Toffoli have, how Romanov looks, and how the PP looks tonight.  I'm feeling a 4-3 Habs win to start the season.

 Nobody would expect the leafs to blow that type of lead more than a leafs fan.

What will the Leafs be doing for line match-ups? We need to contain their top two lines, but our bottom two are significantly stronger than their bottom two.

Just saw #17 skating around and got a Rene Bourque flashback, hopefully Anderson has bit more to his game.:hockey:

🤣

 

Speaking of that how will no crowd at the Bell Centre affect the Habs this year?  Will that help improve the Habs crappy home record from last year?

You shall hear from my attorneys sir ... that is SLANDEROUS.

I hate Toronto sports so much I switch stations if a radio/TV station is discussing their teams or even running ads for upcoming broadcasts.
