  1. Actually Latendresse is tied with Koivu for the lead with 5 points.


    Actually, Markov is in the lead with 6 points (all assists).

    Poor Markov... everyone always seems to forget about him. :lol:

    EDIT: Oops, sorry, just noticed you guys were talking about forwards only! Anyways, still want to throw out some love for Markov :D

  2. But expect a call up soon. This team need a shake up.

    I really don't understand. Our record is 8-3-3 right now. I think at the start of the season if we would have said this would be our record at this point everyone would have been happy. Other than 1 or 2 games, I think the Habs have played very well so far this year.

    People always seem to complain that Carbo moves his lines around too much, but now, even with a decent record, people are asking for a shake up?

    I'll agree with you, but only if we start losing 3-4 games in a row.

  3. The only thing I didn't like bout this game was BREEZE-BY's giveaway which lead to a goal. Get used to that from him.

    I was at the game and sitting in a section behind the Habs net for Ottawa's first goal. Now I'm not the biggest Brisebois fan on here, but that giveaway was all Huet's fault. I love how nobody is mentioning that anywhere. He came out of his net instead of simply letting the puck roll to Brisebois. Then, instead of just stopping it for him, he tries to pass it to him which goes over Patrice's stick right to the Sens player. My heart skips a beat everytime Huet comes out of his net because he's not the best at it, and on that goal (at least from my perspective and vantage point), it was his fault.

  4. According to RDS:


    Kovalev - Grabovski - A. Kostitsyn

    S. Kostitsyn - Plekanec - Ferland

    Kostopoulos - Chipchura - Lahti

    Murray - Milroy - Locke

    They don't mention the D pairings.

    For the Pens:

    Recchi - Crosby - Sykora

    Talbot - Esposito - Hall

    Armstrong - Staal - Malone

    Ruutu - Brent - Laraque

    On defense:

    Sergei Gonchar, Kristopher Letang, Darryl Sydor, Mark Eaton, Rob Scuderi and Mike Weaver.

    Marc-André Fleury and Ty Conklin in net.

    Alot of the regulars for the pens will be playing so this should be quite the test for our youngsters.

  5. I think one of the issues last year was that Souray was so effective on the PP that the whole PP strategy was feed the point, feed the point. Even on 5-3 situations, we didn't see the side door pass to Ryder or Kovalev like we saw the previous year... it was still feed the point. With Souray gone, the PP strategy will need to change and I think we'll see alot more PP production from Ryder and Kovy.

  6. What the heck is wrong with this league!?!?!

    Two guys who only had 69 pts (Drury) and 60pts (Gomez) are going to be making 7+ million a year???

    Let's not be so hard on Saku's 4.75 mil a year considering he had 75 pts last season, more that either of these guys!

  7. anyone have the links where some Quebec media call Bob Gainey racist?

    Thanks in advance

    Geeeez.... I wonder why nobody wants to come play in Montreal.... :puke:

    Isn't it ironic that the very media that calls Gainey a racist (still no source) are always the ones who make everything out to be about "race" ???

    This whole thing is litterally making me sick to my stomach.... I can't even read up on any "Habs draft day analysis" anymore because all they talk about is "race" this and "quebecer" that and "the Habs are turning their backs on Quebec" this. Looks like I have to stick to english media right now cause I least they are trying to give HOCKEY analysis.... cause last time I checked, this is hockey we're talking about right?

  8. Oh man the RDS guys will be pissed about this one.

    I was watching RIS before this and they said Gainey was trying to getting a better pick like crazy and they speculated Kevin Veilleux or Kevin Marshall. They even added "the Habs owe a Q kid the dream of being drafted by them".

    That is the biggest load of crap ever. You don't have to be from Quebec to have your dream come true being drafted by the Habs. Hell, I'm from northern Ontario and I'll tell you what, it would have been a dream being drafted by the Habs. If PK Subban's favorite team growing up was the Canadiens, then good for him to get drafted by them!

  9. PK Subban. Interesting.

    I saw him play with Belleville a few times this year when I went to see the Wolves play there in the OHL playoffs. He's a huge fan favorite over there and has a cannon for a shot. Could be a PP specialist.
