  1. milroy and ferland will never play a significant role for the habs for any extended period of time for the habs guaranteed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. my mistake, moen did get the winner in game 1 but pahllson tied it up late in the third. And my post early was not to bash it was to simply state that you should realize what your posting before you click that button because there are alot of people who understand the habs and hockey and to waste are time by putting 2 (basic) rookie centers on 1 line and say that the AHLer is gonna be better then a guy who is playing darn good hockey (pahlson) is in fact wasting time. And if you think he is ready for big minutes in the NHL you are sadly mistaken. Chips does not have it quite yet to make a big impact to the habs next season. Maybe in the final stretch run next year will he be truly ready for a call up. We have dan jacevski, matt d'agostini ready with locke and o'bryne not far behind. grabo is getting there. I just think CORVINA has it it on the nose that the amount of prospects that are ready to make the jump is increasing by the minute and Gainey will have no choice but to package some in order to bring in impact players to take us to that next level of hockey. OR ELSE we will risk losing some for nothing (e.g francois beauchemin, perezoghin) and the list will almost certainly grow because all these prospects wont wait around forever to get there shot. 2009 is just around the corner and this is the year gainey has to make his moves that will make us or break us.
  3. dan jancevski looked great out there. so did matt and locke. I need not say a word of price!! mikail also played with allittle bit of heart and grit
  4. i cannot comment on this lahti because i nothing of him, however, he is finnish which is european for "closest thing to a canadian hockey player"
  5. oh ya, by the way pahllson has scored 3 straight game winners in hockeys biggest stage (game 6 west final and both home games in the stanley cup finals) and you think chipchura can do better for us in a similar role even though he has yet to even play a single nhl game? Have you even seen chipchura play hockey? i might have the word initiation under my name but i have been reading these posts for a very long time and alot of people know a great deal about my beloved habs and hockey as a whole, but then i read a post like yours and think " sh*t, i just wasted 30 seconds of my life"
  6. why on earth would you have 2 promising centermen on the same 3rd line. does that make sense?? put some thought into your posts please. and mike johnson is done in montreal. we dont need him on our wing. We need top get BETTER..... we need to become CONTENDERS! these plug ins aint gonna cut it. if you think mediocore you will be medicore!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  7. finally some sense. we need proven studs. we cant have a full line up 1st 2nd and 3rd year players and also contend for the cup. you need balance. youth experience grit speed flare and balls
  8. i thought lanny won it with calgary when they beat the habs. i know wishful thinking with that line up. but that would be my approach. get a winger dump the defence if really want to revamp it. see if u can score a center and rebuild ur d. then introduce another rookie. easy know??? ha
  9. We can look to plug holes from within but if we are going to give koivu a contender we need to compete with studs in our line up and putting rookie kids out there to log serious minutes isnt gonna get us there. we need a gifted winger for koivu and ryder(teemu selanne) and 2 defenders. hopefully schnieder and danny markov.maybe emelin if he comes. we only have 1 roster spot available for a kid if we want to contend. remember: lats/ lapierre/ are sophmores higgins/ pleks/ streit are going on 3 yrs and ryder/ komi on their fourth and kostitsyn/ halak are still basically rookies Thats 9 players when you get a big shift like this in experiance you end up missing out on playoff births due to the learning curve.
  10. i am sorry to tell you but the habs have nobody on the dogs ready for 1st or 2nd line duty. i am from hamilton and have seen over 15 home games plus the playoffs and trust me they have gone for a goaltending ride with all three of danis halak and now price. only dan janko is ready absolutley nobody else on defence. on the offence our best talent ready for the bigtime is matt d'agosti. grabo is not ready at all for full time duty. he looks average out there without kostitsyn. seriously he has done nothing . he is small and gets knocked off the puck by everyone. dont get me wrong he has so much talent. i just think he needs another year. locke and milroy are simply ahlers. chipcura is our best overall 2 way player. he scores timely goals but i think he needs another year also. especially if we want to contend we only have three studs in our system right now............Price, sergei Kosty, and emelin emelin is really good and definetly ready.... sergei is a london boy who everyone said rode the wave of perry and shremp, now he's riding kane and gagner??? could it be that they were riding him !! however, KANE is very gifted. finally price. he is the reason the dogs are clicking he is the calmest of goalies out there. i watch them play at home and it looks like he doesnt belong. even at 19 yrs of age. he has what we have been craving for since the early 90's.....................patrick roy calibre goaltending. the bulldogs are a great team key word being team with allstar netminders Danis, Halak and now price and this is the kety factor in their calder cup run. timely goals and nhl all-star calibre goaltending.
  11. BY THE WAY I DIDNT BOTHER TO CHECK MY SPELLING OR IF IT WOULD WORK UNDER THE CAP SELANNE/ KOIVU/ RYDER HIGGINS/PLEKS/ KOSTY LATS/DRURY/ D'AGOSTINI BEGIN/ LAPIERRE/ GELINAS MARKOV/ KOMI SCHNIEDER/ SOURAY STRIET/ D. MARKOV (EMELIN) JORGES DAN JANKO AND DUMP EVERYONE ELSE FOR ANYTHING
  12. the true key is to sign the finnish flash for ( 1yr 4.5 million and a 2nd year 5million club otion) to play the left wing with Koivu and ryder until our youth are seasoned because truth be told we do not have a VANEK/ CROSBY/ MALKIN TYPE STUD EXCEPT FOR PRICE AND POSSIBLY SERGEI KOSTY keep the entire higgins/pleks/ kosty lione in tact and give them 82 games the third should consist of lats/ bonk (at only 1.5) and kovy put begin on the fourth with lapierre and try to sign gelinas (playoff swagger) OUR DEFENSE needs our cap space markov>> komi schnieder>> souray streit>> danny markov janceveski jorges we dump sammy for a fourth or waive him we dump dandy for a 4th or waive him also WE DUMP BOUILLION FOR A THIRD ideally i would LIKE TO MOVE KOVY AND PICK UP DRURY TO PLAY WITH LATS AND A FRESH FACE ON THE RIGHT. MAYBE CHIPS BUT I THINK HE STILL ISNT QUITE READY. ANOTHER MOVE COULD BE TO BRING UP PRICE TO SHARE THE LOAD WITH HALAK AND PACKAGE HUET WITH ANY OF THE ABOVE TO GET A STUD HOPEFULLY JAY BOUMEESTER, THEN WE WOULD BE LAUGHING CAUSE HE IS OUTSTANDING. EMELIN IS DEFINITELY READY FOR THE NHL IF HE COMES I WATCHED HIM DOMINATE IN THE UNDER21'S AND WAS BY FAR THE BEST DEFENCEMEN. WAY BETTER THEN STAAL. HE LED ALL DEFENCE IN POINTS AND PUS MINUS AND NOBODY COULD SCORE WHEN HE WAS ON THE ICE. HE COULD TAKE DANNY MARKOV'S SPOT. ON A FINAL NOTE: THE ONLY DEFENCEMEN THAT IS READY FOR THE HABS FROM THE DOGS IS DAN JAN. HE IS THERE BEST D-MAN HANDS DOWN. NOT COTE NOT NOBODY. HE IS THE ONLY ONE READY. I AM FROM HAMILTON AND HAVE WATCHED OVER 15 HOME GAMES AND TRUST ME HE IS THE ONLY ONE. HAMILTON HAS BENEFITED FROM 3 GREAT GOALIES THIS YEAR AND PRICE IS PERFORMING AT A VERY HIGH LEVEL IN THESE PLAYOFFS. HE DEFINITLY HAS THAT SWAGGER THAT WE HAVENT SEEN SINCE YES THATS RIGHT ......ST. PATRICK. HE IS LEADING US RIGHT NOW. WE HAVE NO FORWARDS READY. GRABAVOSKI HAS BEEN NOTHING MORE THEN AVERAGE WITHOUT KOSTITSYN AND IS SMALL AND VERY EASILY AND I MEAN VERY EASILY PUSHED OFF THE PUCK. HE HAS GREAT ABILITY/ TALENT BUT IM AFRAID HE ISNT READY FOR FULLTIME habs DUTY. NOT IF WE WANT TO BE CONTENDERS. HE NEEDS 1 MORE YEAR. MATT D'AGO IS OUR CLOSEST OFFENCE AND CHIPS OUR BEST CHECKER
  13. I have come top realize that the most storied franchise in hockey lies in the hearts of all hockey men. "THEY LOVE THE HABS OR THEY LOVE TO HATE THEM." either way they love them:ghg: i have arrived!!
  14. TORONTO AND THERE FANS MAKE ME SICK. TSN HAS THEM RANKED #2 IN THE LEAGUE. IT SEEMS THEY FORGOT ABOUT THE UNDEFEATED PREDS, HOW ABOUT THE 7-1 WINGS. OR THE CANUCKS. hOW ABOUT THE OTHER 3O% OF THE LEAGUE WHO HAVE MORE POINTS THEN THE LEAFS. WAIT... they have the #1 offence. Ya ...and they also top the charts in powerplay oppourtunities and are in what the top 5 in least pw against. LIKE I SAID..... MAKE ME SICK:nono:

  16. FORZA ITALIA 2006 MOM<DAD< NONNO<NONNA< SISTER ALL BORN IN NAPOLI forza italia in wc 2006.
  17. listen, everyone seems all bent up on ribs. But to my knowledge last year was his first full season in the nhl and he did lead us in scoring, mind you on the 2nd line. OK so he's started off slow,is plus/minus -3 and plays poor defence...SO WHAT. HE also has 5pts in 7 games. HE scored the game winner against TO and set up the tying goal in the re-match. He also tied it up against Boston. He really isn't playing all that bad outside of a weak defence of game. SH*T, we haven't even played ten games and all you guyz already want him on the block. IF any part of a players game can improve its the defencive part. give him a chance.
