  1. I feel like one of the few excited for this series. Did I mention in the thread title that it is HABS VS LEAFS IN THE PLAYOFFS?! It's almost as if everyone forgets that all bets are off the table when these two face each other. Why the doom and gloom? If you can't get up for this series then what can you get up for? Reasons to be optimistic (adjective; hopeful and confident about the future.) I added that for some here that don't know what that means: Carey Price - First off, he is back from an injury plagued season. When he is on top of his game he is the best in th

  2. Drouin won't get a point there, but he drew the penalty and made the play along the boards to start the goal (a 3rd assist type pass). He also has an assist tonight. Clearly has taken his game to another level this season.

  8. I was really impressed with Evans last night. To jump back in after missing four games without missing a beat was nice to see. To do so playing higher in the lineup than he ever had in his NHL career, setting a new career high in ice time, while playing a position I'm not sure he ever has played in his career, is quite something.

  10. Lehkonen needs to be protected as well but the Habs have to comply with the 2 forwards under contract that meet the 27/54 rule. As things stand, those two forwards are likely Byron and Evans by default (once they get there). Lehkonen can't be in that category because he's an RFA. Unless he's signed, they can't protect Evans and unprotect Lehkonen. It's not that RFAs don't need to be protected - they do - but in order for the Habs to protect Evans over Lehkonen, they'd have to extend Lehkonen first. Guaranteed Protectees Anderson Gallagher (NMC) Drouin

  12. I think that’s two different issues. We lost the sergachev trade. Fine. It’s done. Sucks - but it’s done. but 5.5 for a 50+ pt 2nd line forward? That’s the going rate. As soon as a player gets 50 pts a season that instantly means there are at least 30 games where they got 0 points. We aren’t even talking the odd time the player has a 2 or 3 point night. And those nights Drouin doesn’t score - he looks terrible (tho the beginning of last season, before the injury, he wasn’t floating) Drouin is what he is. A top 6 forward. At 5.5 per, that’s not outrageous.

  14. He was pushing the envelope all game long. You can clearly see that he’s stops skating hard when he notices he has no chance to get to the puck with his stick. That’s when he decides to absolutely annihilate Evans. Disgusting and vile.

  19. 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!!!

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  23. Tangential side-note: I got Chris Nilan to make a “Memmo” video as a present for my father’s 79th birthday. He did a great job, talking about how tough things are under Covid, expressing rueful sympathy about the challenges of getting older - his sincerity and charisma really came through. 👍 Knuckles is da man!

  26. They are nowhere near the team they were in the 80’s. While they admittedly had dynasty holdovers in Robinson and Gainey, they drafted and developed a multiple conn smythe and Vezina winner in Roy, a multiple Norris winner in Chelios, 100 point man Naslund, 50 goal scorer im the enigmatic Richer, multiple selke winner in Carbonneau, traded for 90 point men in Damphousse, Bellows and Muller. Always had a steady stream of good top 4 Dmen until the Houle years Oh, and we won two cups and went to another finals.

  27. Referees for the 'Dollar Bill’s Discount Money Lenders North Division' as CC so eloquently put it: Kendrick Nicholson Brad Meier Eric Furlatt Kevin Pollock Marc Joannette Graham Skilliter Chris Schlenker Mitch Dunning* Michael Markovic* Corey Syvret* *-AHL referees There's also a list of linesmen that will be restricted to North Division duty but I wanted to mention the referees at least so everyone could rejoice in not seeing Chris Lee's name on there.

Well, my daddy left home when I was three And he didn't leave much to ma and me Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze Now I don't blame him 'cause he run and hid But the meanest thing that he ever did Was before he left he went and named me Sue (...) And he said, "Son, this world is rough And if a man's gonna make it he's gotta be tough And I know I wouldn't be there to help you along So I gave that name and I said goodbye I knew you'd have to get tough or die And it's that name what helped to make you strong"

  34. They have put Nylander - Matthews - Marner together. We have to contain that line. Without JT, there is nothing scary in the rest of the forwards after those three. Some decent players, but that first line is really stacked.

  38. 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 ...

  42. Not happy with Toffoli's choice to throw the puck back in the defensive zone when he had a chance to clear. Seconds later, it was 2-0 Winnipeg. You have the puck on your stick and the third pairing on the ice, make the smart play and get it out of there.

  43. Danault : Yeah I just scored my first of the season, knew it was coming. Petry : That's cute. I juste scored my 10th. Danault : Yeah, but I have all the big defensive missions. Petry : You mean, like a defenseman ?

  44. First of all, thanks God Bergevin acquired Anderson and Toffoli, since they, along with Price, were the only Habs to show up for the first 40 minutes. It’s the old story: your best players have to be your best players. Price and Gallagher really brought it - the latter being THE difference-maker in the third. Danault also looked like he shook off his daze in the second half. Mete certainly had one that one great shift and looked competent otherwise. I thought Romanov looked good too. Weber was a painful sight for the first 40...I don’t know how many times I saw him wit

  46. I think we have room for one big contract this offseason, not two. If I'm looking for a big contract, I'm after a game breaker at wing, not a defenceman. I think Kulak, Chiarot, Romanov, and Mete.... is a good 1-4 on the Left, and you have Weber, Petry, Juulsen and Fleury on the right.
