  1. I love Suzy and he's certainly showing signs that he could be our best forward of my fandom. I thought this year was crucial for adding another elite talent up front in the draft, but those chances appear to be dwindling.
  2. I was about to admonish Arby for fighting too much but Deslauriers didn't give him much of a choice there.
  3. Don't mind giving Harris a break after all his gaffes last game. A three man platoon with Arby and Kovy makes sense. Hoping for another high scoring 0-point result!
  4. Anecdotally, I have plenty of memories of us just never getting possession let alone near the net without the extra attacker. At least we're giving ourselves the best chance of scoring. I'd like to believe Marty's decision here is backed by analytics.
  5. I disagree, the extra attacker helps win possession. Maybe not with over two minutes left, but in the final minute you need the extra attacker out there. Yep, Slaf is showing more and more. First career assist tonight, some slick passing and shooting, and strong battles along the boards.
  6. Score four goals and lose in regulation, the perfect result!
  7. We should wear the whites at home for 8 games if we want to switch things up.
  8. Hopefully we lose every game in these ugly jerseys and never wear them again.
  9. Future considerations is NHL speak for nothing. It's what we gave to Calgary for Monahan and a 1st.
  10. Drouin out for 4-6 weeks. We won't miss him of course. Only hope he's healthy by the deadline so we can get some future considerations.
  11. Well, we got the regulation loss. Would have been nice to pad the stats with that extended 6 on 5. I only caught the third, Slaf managed to get a shot attempt while I was watching and statline shows 4 shots so maybe it was a decent outing for him. Gally with an atrocious giveaway to lead to a Devils goal.
  12. I think Slaf will eventually spend some time in Laval to get big minutes, but for now he's still progressing at the NHL level and learning from our NHL coaching staff. The AHL team seems like a bit of a mess at the moment so maybe it's best to wait till they get right before sending our prize prospect there.
  13. Really enjoyed listening to Gorton here, he's a great speaker. Kudos to Molson for getting this guy to lead the rebuild. An interesting tidbit from the interview: it sounds like they're targeting a midseason extension for Caufield. Gorton says 'maybe in a week, a month, or two months'.
  14. Because we already went through the McDonagh fiasco, Sergachev just doesn't hurt me as bad. We would have made multiple finals with Subban/McDonagh on the top pair and Markov on the second. If we kept Sergachev, then Bergy would probably still be around and we wouldn't have this exciting new organizational direction. Besides, I think he's a bit overrated and sheltered playing on a loaded D-corps.
  15. Good game for our core, and good game for our deadline rentals. Did we pick up a first-liner for Romanov and sign him to a sweetheart 4-year deal? Signs are pointing to yes. Drouin and Hoffman look like they have a bit of life left in them, and maybe they'll find a taker. Monahan will get us a first and a prospect at the deadline. It's kind of fun during a tank to root for a goal in both offensive zones. I was genuinely happy when both teams scored, and if we get more games like this with average goaltending we'll be back in decent draft position eventually.
  16. I think it would have helped, but not drastically changed his ceiling. Maybe raised his floor a bit so he was more well-rounded.
  17. Wow that seems like overkill. Nowhere near as bad as the Anderson hit. But it's NHL player safety so it's not supposed to make sense.
  18. They'd probably be helping our tank at this point! Right now we have perhaps the best stretch of regular season Habs goaltending since Carey Price six years ago.
  19. More points in the standings stolen by our goaltenders.
  20. Hopefully we'll start underperforming the analytics to compensate. Finishing 10th last wouldn't be ideal.
  21. I have hopes for at least a couple of our prospect forwards becoming top-6ers, especially Beck and Mesar. Kidney, Roy, and Farrell also look promising. Allen seems like a decent option in goal for the mid term future. We'll start to lose more and wind up with a good pick. We just have to hope for more high-scoring regulation losses, a productive deadline, and to continue to patiently play the long game.
  22. Slaf, Cole, and Suzy make me so happy when they score. We've got a likeable future core! (if they produce)
  23. Monty getting us another point that we don't need. Great to see Dach thriving on the top line. 3.5M for a first line winger for four years is a steal if he sticks up there.
  24. He could definitely use a month or two in the minors, if not a whole year. His game is so raw, we'll have to wait a few years to see if we made a good choice at #1.
