We played great 👍 

Can Weber be our #7 Dman?

 

An interesting philosophical question.

Can?   He is capable of doing so

Could?  It is possible it could happen

Will?  Take the LottoMax odd and multiply them by the Lotto649 odds and then double that

I’ll just put my cards on the table and say that it is a good thing to have some women’s voices in hockey and on the signature national broadcasts. Cassie Campbell and Jennifer B. were both pioneers o

I just want to watch a Habs game and enjoy it from beginning to end more than once a month.   Get the lead. Keep the lead. Extend the lead. It's what good teams do.

Caufield with OT winner and Oil gonna destroy Canucks so we in playoffs baby 🎉

Nicely nicely, Suzuki!!

 

When he shoots from the correct shooting areas he scores.

It was a similar kanundrum with Koivu.  .i.e an aging Captain that needs to renounce the C and accept a lesser role but how to actually do it?  The Habs got rid of Koivu.

I certainly hope that the Simmonds tossing isn't just a trend. 

 

Too bad Bilbo missed on the break away.  

 

D'oh, Leafs score. 

 

However, 2nd breakfast isn't over yet and Bilbo just drew a penalty.

I once played hockey with a kid in tyke who would try to fall on every puck with his pads just like Allen did.

 

The outcome (every time) was also the same as Allen.

They let Saku leave in free agency ... a few years until they have that option with Weber ... Seattle is a potential chance to "let him go" but don't believe that MB could ever bring himself to not protect Shea.

What does accepting a lesser role have to do with being captain?

Habs could have kept Koivu at a lower salary. Don’t have that option with Weber.

I’d rather protect Kulak than Weber.

Maybe its just me, but I'd say everything.

 

ex:  Gustafsson, he is barely able to play on the team (i.e. 7th dman), so if he was good in the dressing room would that be a reason for him to be Captain?  

 

Personally, I'd pick somebody who is leading on the team to be the leader.

Yes, but that was really the problem.  i.e. he was C for way too long because he wasn't doing that.  The only option with Weber is to get rid of him, which the Habs essentially did with Koivu by letting him "walk"  =  not giving him a contract offer.

Damn, our chances in the playoffs against the leafs o-meter is almost dead, we're counting on Price and Gally riding in on golden horses at this point.

I'm liking Bieksa as an analyst.  Its unarguable that his views are definitely very different from the rest of them.  ex:  Wilson.

He's cracked me up a couple times, the first laughs on HNIC since Don's departure.

That's exactly what I was thinking too.

 

Its not possible for anybody to be just like Cherry, but he's probably the closest that anybody can be. 

 

Similarly, I really liked Roenik and thought he might get really big in the US.   I'm not sure what happened to him but I dont think he lasted very long because of 1 of his views.

Of course Kotkaniemi falls on his ass, blocking Caufield's access to the puck...killing cycle on the powerplay. 🤬

Habs are really fighting the puck. Passes are just a bit off to accept at full pace, losing control of the puck with zero pressure, and all five players on the ice seem to have five different ideas on how to create offense.

Jeez, Bilbo could have got a too many men penalty there.  The poor guy is too small to hop over the bench.

Send beat the Jets. A Habs win tonight makes things interesting in the bid for 3rd place again.

Ducharme keeps playing guys who are clearly not going well tonight...he's a horrible coach.

That's a clean hit by Petry but whatever... players don't look like they want to win anyway.

I expect to be thoroughly embarrassed in the first round…

There's a big difference between a reduced role and being in the press box.
