Peewee (4/23)



  1. I was happy to read it, but it's more like who among those 3 are the best prospects...but it doesnt mean Avtsin is top among russian prospects from what i read in the article.(english not my 1st language)
  2. First off, i agree with you that people are too rough on Price, especially at his age, if he has 26-27 years old it would be an other story but he just turned 23 a few days ago. Nevertheless, i'm wondering whats that deal all about? Did cedrick felt unwanted in CH plans and wanted to show what he was able to do(request a trade?) I see Ramo and Desjardins pretty much equal...yes ramo has some NHL experience but he wasnt hot at all in his NHL days with tampa...even if it was with a mediocre defense team. Stats wise i dont think RAMO and desjardins are equals. Desjardins has excelled in every level he played. He wasnt drafted which explains partly why he had to build his way to the AHL with excellent performance. From junior to AHL he was always with winning teams or nearly. I was thinking do you guys believe this transaction is because of contract number issues, down the salary cap from Hamilton since ramo doesnt cost anything since he's at KHL?
  3. I somehow didnt see that going, i tough he was in the backoffice for last year. Anyhow...everyone besides Carbonneau has a job it seems.
  4. http://www.rds.ca/hockey/chroniques/303815.html Seems like the CH and their staff are going in different directions...
  5. Well when players were still praising Scott Livingston during the year where Goldenberg was here...you tend to wonder what impact he's done....enough to be fired. I dont think it's a financial consideration as they will surely name a replacement
  6. Alexandre Giroux players...to a greater extend the ones who are in bests in AHL yet dont qualify for NHL. Hopefully Desharnais wont be that kind of player... over 50 goals in AHL for Giroux. Hes 6'3'' and 195 lbs... OK he's 29 years old...but why montreal didnt bother to sign him? Oilers got him for 500k.. He never cracked up Washington lineup in last 2 years...i wonder why...really.
  7. Expectations depends from our limited knowledge and our capacity to project from there by including a fair porportion of risk. What we are sure of : Least 1 person of the CH will be hurt during next year...might be Markov during 1 month. 1 of the 30 teams will win the stanley cup The CH can build experience upon playing 3 rounds in their series for first time in ages... What are the strong assumptions we can say: PK Subban, Pyatt, Pacioretty, Eller have the potential to make the CH Club next year. Carey Price will have to take his sharehold of victories because Auld, Sandford and Desjardins arent exactly depth goaltending High risk but good reward: Pouliot, AK47 will need to increase their offensive contribution next year. I expect them to battle for the 8th spot once again this year because of all the uncertainity of injuries, keys roles not yet filled, etc. I'm eager to see the final line up of the club next year and then it will be easy to say what will happends.
  8. Now if Maxim Trunev would come over that would be even sweeter.
  9. Posted in french section... http://twitter.com/Richardlabbe/status/15464165188 That would be so sweet...
  10. Ça serait la meilleure nouvelle de la saison morte...
  11. I wonder who has a chance to make their debut with CH this year? Who are AHL and who are CH candidates? Highest chances? Pacioretty, if he was good enough last year, i bet he can forge a place against in the club. He actually didnt do too bad at end of season in AHL with the club. Boucher stated that the regained his confidence. Trotter, 35 goals...havent seen a CH prospect score that many goals in the AHL in a while... Desharnais? two very decent seasons in a row...but is there room for him? Maxwell This guy didnt look ready at all in any NHL game i saw him playing. Eller, Rumors that he has a decent chance of making it, he might not start but eventually joins the club during the year? Avstin Most Likely an AHL candidate. Kristo Most likely going to United States again or AHL at the best.
  12. Je me demandais...qu'est-ce qui avait causé le départ d'Yvon Pedneault à la barre de RDS avec Pierre Houde. C'est une vieille histoire maintenant plus de deux ans...mais en discutant du travail de Benoit à RDS avec des amis...on se rappelait plus personne ce qui avait causé le départ d'Yvon. Merci pour l'info si jamais quelqu'un en sait davantage.
  13. Aye but Koivu has reached his peak and is career will just go downhill as Vinny still has many many more years in his peak to go in his carreer...so the average that looks comparable atm will just get bigger and bigger with years to come in my mind.
  14. Even if comparing doesnt always bring any valid point in the progression of Price we may want to take a look at Marc-André Fleury dedigree. While i think Fleury ethic of work seems above Price, the performance they have put in their first years arent the same because they didnt have the same kind of team in front of them but they can be comparable. While Fleury was drafted first pick in 2003 if im not mistaken, Price was drafted in the 2005 draft. It wasnt always easy for Fleury at Pittsburgh, he was sent back down several times and until last year his performance werent the best really. He has now reached a new plateau this year and has been way more solid this season. He sure did a few health problems but so they Price...Look at how shines Fleury now... Problem in Montreal is we tend to give way too one word : have patience with the young breed goalies... I dont think we can make career assumptions until they reach 24-26 years old. Problem with the habs fan is they always compare our players with the best young goalies out there who have made marvelous shutdowns but they almost never look at the big picture. As for Melanson, i do agree with other posters who have been saying he made almost all CH goalies play 1-2 notches above their potential in the past. Yesterday while watching l'antichambre at RDS i saw some of his comments on a RBC radio proclaming he was gently pushed aside from the training.... I really wonder why a goaler trainer is taking too much place? Is it because he felt at the short terme that Halak was more ready than Price....Bob definitely not agreeing...we do not know. Based on his comments to halifax radio show i really wonder what he was thinking...lynching himself out of montreal or expressing himself because he definitely knew he wouldnt get a contract for next year? Seriously this season has been so awful outside and on ice...i really have no idea what to think about CH short terme future...and Melanson is included in the big evaluation Gainey and his team will have to do.
  15. whats your level of enthousiam? 10 on 10!!! Whats you level of optimism for the habs to come out of this series with a Win? ummm 6 on 10 on the fact Markov wont be there.
