  2. I don't have the lineups or anything else for you. What I do have is the facts. We need a point. Period. Get your butts out there and get'er done boys. Can't wait on Calgary losing to the 'nucks. 1st GDT of the season, hope it is not my last! Go Habs Go!!!

  3. 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 of the women’s sport who played it at a high level for years. Neither is what I’d call a Grade-A analyst, but they are both better than many of the clowns and gasbags that have wasted those seats over the years, e.g., Glenn Healy. The entire culture of the NHL as a giant club for white hetero male “Good Canadian Boys” is tired, boring, and long past its best-by date anyhow as far as I’m concerned.

  4. I don't care how many goals Primeau lets in or how many bad rebounds he gives up (which is why some of us have been saying he's not ready to be a full-time backup next season), he has to stay in. If Price isn't 100% for the playoffs and Allen is the starter, he can't go in tired. He's clearly tired right now so this has to be Primeau's game no matter what. By picking him to start, they're playing the long game. One truly awful period shouldn't change that.

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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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 ...

  11. Yes, and maybe their coach will actually spread the ice time around as a result. Have never seen a coach cater to one player so much, from double shifting, to putting him on with opponent goalie pulled and anything else to help him get to his “milestone”, meanwhile the rest of the team is watching. Through a connection the their organization (medical professional) I was told the teammates noticed it and were not impressed. I was told this is partly why there are very few interviews with teammates about how happy they are about McDavid’s 100 points. Apparently players open up during

  12. "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...

  13. Here is an optimistic take on things. You look at this team, they have been consistently in a playoff spot all season. They have a lot of old guys and may well be highly playoff-directed. So, the motivation in the regular season drops off; their entire aim is to just survive the season until the games really matter. Even though this group has been pretty insipid since the first dozen games, they have yet to end up in any real trouble in the standings. Instead they come up with 1-2 big wins when they need them, then revert back to plodding mediocrity. So, once the bell rings for the

  16. 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.

  20. 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

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

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**

  27. 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

  28. 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.

  30. 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

  33. 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.

  35. 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.

  37. 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,

  38. 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.

A little more research shows sports and anti-trust have am interesting history in the courts ... other than the specific anti-trust exemption for MLB, and the general jurisprudence exemption for sports leagues to operate collectively and restrict entry, it seems that potentially litigious issues such as "one and done" have been allowed because they are collectively bargained ... I suspect they may not have been challenged because a draft-ineligible player would have to risk several years of a possible career in court before their case was finally resolved ... the situation may be further compl

  41. Petry is far more than a #3. He's been the #1 on this team for two years, and is better than pretty much any D in this division outside of Hughes and Giordano. He's absolutely a #1. He's not the best d in the league, but he's in the top 15. As for mistakes, every D has them. Every d has slumps. Every D has brain cramps. And Petry's are not every other game.

  43. Well, yes. But if Price had not been lousy for most of the season, we’d have some extra wins; and if Weber were Weber, we’d have more wins on top of that. On paper, this team should be better than it is - and that’s because when we look at Price and Weber “on paper” we imagine something very different from what we’ve seen on the ice this season. I think this team would be just fine if those two were playing anywhere close to their prime levels. (And re: Price, I’m not talking about Superman of 2014, but just a top-10 G).
