  1. I'm still available. I'm very defensive, like to hit people and most of my friends and family find me very offensive. And as you may have suspected I'm cheap.

  2. "Welcome to the big show! Now... it's gonna take a lot of work. It's gonna take a lot of sweat. But eventually I am gonna mold you into one of the greatest 12 year olds to ever play this game! Now... ack... ack... kyeh... kyeh.. aeeeeh.... suit up... I'll see you out there..." So how about that Cole Caufield goal, huh? Yes please, and may I have another? Looks like the same lines as last game but with Allen getting the start.

  3. Maybe we need to get guys like former goon George Parros and dirty ####er Chris Pronger out of the DOPS and put in guys like Marc Savard, a skilled player who lost his career to a dirty play instead.

  5. He is on pace for 43/44 goal season in a 82 game season ... thus far this season is an outlier ... doesn't mean he can't do it again, just that he never has ... hopefully he has finally landed in the right situation and can be a consistent 35-40 goal scorer (or better) ... if so his contract is a ridiculous bargain ...

  8. Weber has clearly declined, and significantly in the defensive end of the ice. The xGA stats show this. The shots he is giving up are coming from high danger areas more and more. Thats an issue with a nearly 8 million cap hit, so yes, I'd leave him unprotected.

  9. "Let the big dog eat!" Final road trip of the regular season begins, and this is the last chance the Habs' will have to feast on a weaker team. A win here either vaults the team into 3rd or keeps pace with the Jets and drops the Flames out of the playoff race. Lineups changed at practice signaling a potential return from one of the injured forwards. More info to come...

  10. So he's already the team leader in overtime winning goals for the year. Sticklers may want to point out that all overtime goals are winning goals. I never said I was smart. Well. I did actually. But I was lying. I know what you're thinking. That's not smart. I'm going to go and lie down now.

  14. A bad goal is a bad goal - doesn’t matter on the goalie. There’s three reasons why there are more complaints about Price. First, as the starter, Price plays more and on average has left more softies in, so there is a lot more visibility. Second, Allen is the best backup we had since Halak. So speaking for myself, I’m just happy to have a credible backup. As the backup expectations are also lower. Until tonight, the only really blatant bad goal that stood out out was the one where Allen mishandled/missed the puck behind the net. Price has let in a lot of backbreakers t

  15. Hey Jonathon.. forgive us amigo. We're hockey nuts and we like winning even more than hockey so when things are tough all around we tend to be too tough all around. You are a wonderfully gifted hockey player and with les Habs ... and that's a wonderful thing! So please forgive us hockey pucks for loading up on a terrific young man. Come on back when you're ready and I promise we will be cheering for all the great things you bring and the rest will just happen naturally. May the great Spirit who made winter just so kids of any age could play hockey send you peace and joy and renewed love of the

  18. Absolute energy sapping goal to give up there, but let's not pretend this game is on the goaltending. The Habs aren't going to win many games while averaging less than 2 goals per game while Gallagher is out.

  20. All I'm looking at is next man up/cap space/hockey implications, because we have no idea what is going on with mental or physical health (and it's none of our business). You can concern yourself on other levels if you like, that's your choice...but I'm not going to apologize for mine. Take your name-calling and shove it up your a**

  21. I'm not a big X and O guy but I noticed on Friday night in the third period that the Habs had some success on the cycle and generated some of their chances near the end off that. Then in the first period of this game, they had some success on the cycle. Then, to me, it appeared as if they gave up on the cycle entirely and went back to trying to score off the rush. I don't know if that was a Montreal coaching adjustment or something Calgary did to counter that but I'd like to see a more concerted effort to get back to the cycle. No, they're not built to do that very well but when you're not

  22. I’m blaming the reverse retro jerseys! ever since Feb 4 vs the Sens when our beloved bleu blanc rouge emphasized the BLEU! They conjured up the ghost of hated Maple Leafs past! it was wrong to make blue the primary color. we must now offer a sacrifice.

  24. I think if we had a Markov type of QB in the defence, we would do fine with our centres. Petry is good, but he isn’t Markov. Weber is too old and slow. That’s why last summer, I thought our biggest need is a smart puck moving offensive dman, and I think that is still the biggest hole in the lineup. Unless we have a superstar, McDavid, Matthews, type of elite centre, of Kane type of winger, we can’t get by with our current dmen. We’ve got some good wingers and that’s why I wanted to move a Tatar or Danault if we had to, because we need that Hughes, Makar type of skill in the backend. Hell, a T

  27. At this point I find myself half-hoping the Canucks pull it off. Not only would it be a great story, but I’m feeling rather mad at this Habs team, which is shaping up to be yet another disappointment after such a promising summer and start to the season. The Canucks, meanwhile, have faced some ACTUAL adversity (as opposed to the Habs’ endless excuse-making) and appear to be doing the opposite of the Habs, i.e., rising to the occasion.

  29. I tried to summarize the four recall situation but it wound up being way too long of a write-up to be thrown into the Habs Weekly column. I'll post it as a standalone piece tomorrow instead and we'll see if it needs tweaking if they decide to bring Caufield up now.

  31. I don’t get how that makes him MB 2.0? He played a key role in Toronto. He’s the reason they chose Marner, over the consensus Hanafin. He has been a GM and part of owner for a highly successful junior team. what’s your solution not higher anyone ever because they may not do better than building the mediocre tram that MB has. Or continue waiting for a GM with a long track record that can speaks French? is Briabois the only one - though he doesn’t have a long track record? we need a change NOW. You don’t keep someone as GM because you don’t know who the perfect candidate is,

  32. If we were to lose all our remaining games. And Oilers, Jets, Flames, Canucks and Sens all were to win all their remaining games, I think we would end up in last place. Well, if it were possible, at least we'd get a lottery pick out of it.

  33. For all of our outrage, the team is still very solidly in a playoff spot. So we should cool our jets a little. Lord knows I’ve had my differences with Bergevin, but I would appoint him GM into perpetuity before I hire Roy or Maguire. As far as MB goes, he did a stellar job this summer. His real problem is the wider strategy of “retooling” when the only clear-cut elite talents in the organization are Price and Weber. This always raised the very real danger that the old guys would decline before the young guys could develop enough to be reliably impact players. And this is **exactly*

  39. Nice tip by Matthews, not much the D or goalie could do about that. Sucks to go back down again late in the period, but we only managed 4 shots in the 2nd. Hopefully we have a better showing in the 3rd.

  41. You guys should be careful what you wish for. Regardless of how you feel, I tend to believe that the Habs are better off in the playoffs with Price than Allen, as well as Weber over Chiarot playing on the right side, all of a sudden. Romanov isn’t exactly an upgrade on Weber on the PP, either. And I’m not even going to say Caufield is right this minute, even though I am extremely high on him. Weber is a power play legend when it comes to scoring goals. 10th all time for goals on thr power play by a defenseman, and 5 behind Brian Leetch for 9th. Third this year,

  44. Very true. On the other hand, since 2014 NSH has had 11 playoff series to the Habs’ 5. They *won* as many series as the Habs played in over that span! And they went to the Finals to boot. So, you know, give me Nashville’s last decade over the Habs’, any day of the week, (NSH is an odd story, actually; some of their key cogs aged out or regressed quite young, especially Johansen, but also Turris and Subban; and meanwhile Rinne just plain aged out, a problem anyone could see coming a mile off but which their GM did not address - rather like MB doing nothing to anticipate Plekanec’s

  45. Laval has had two more games rescheduled against Belleville with Toronto's break being extended. Instead of just playing tomorrow, they'll also play Friday and Saturday. (All three are on the road.) Belzile, Ylonen, Vejdemo, and Mysak are all available to return.
