  1. I haven't watched any other TB games this year, but would the lightning have played so aggressively if they hadn't been trailing the whole game? I agree we need to turn it up, but I'm not sold yet that Boucher would have us playing like the flying frenchmen of old.
  2. Havlat's reaction to that was hilarious.
  3. If he can stay healthy I think AK46 could crack the 30 goal mark. We seem to actually have some continuity in our top 6 and now that the distraction is in Nashville Andrei could really blossom. A couple games back when Andrei picked off that pass the release on his shot was amazing. If opposing D's focus in on Cammy then AK will eat them alive.
  4. If you think AKost can stay consistent for 6 weeks you aren't really the Devil's Advocate, more like the eternal optimist.
  5. Didn't get to watch the game, but it's nice to see MaxPac contribute. 2A 4 shots and 4 hits is a pretty good night, and I would love to see him stick with the big club.
  6. Can't argue with that choice. Now who wears the A's? I would have to think one would go to Gorges, but Gill deserves one too and I can't see two bottom 3 defense getting them. My guess is it will be Gill (at least to start) and the other A will be a tossup with Cammi, Gomez, and Markov.
  7. I just hope the players vote for who their actual leader is as opposed to PG choosing someone for PR reasons.
  8. http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=333690 Sweet justice.
  9. http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=333231#YourCallTop "And the 25-year-old Slovak said the right things when he called his phenomenal success with Montreal "a real nice memory," but part of the past. He says he's looking now to the future." I'm hoping those are the reporters words and not Halak's. Phenomenal isn't really how I would describe his career so far.
  10. I thought you just out Eller on the GG line so we could call it the EGG line. The other two had great success with Elias, so maybe they are just waiting for another E.
  11. That could work, I'm not really up to date on Boyd so I'm not sure what all he brings to the table. It would also be nice if this signing put the Moore loss to rest. It seems more people miss Moore than Koivu.
  12. Fair enough, I just thought neither had much offensive upside to compliment Eller so I went with Pyatt because he is faster and has more energy.
  13. My bet would be: Pyatt - Eller - Laps Moen - Boyd/Halpern - Halpern/Boyd Darche in the media box
  14. That's way to low for his regular season production, but way to high for his post-season production. I guess it evens out.
  15. My bad, I though Moore was more like 35 or something. Anyway he is sort of redundant now that we have added Boyd and Eller with Laps to our bottom six. Guerin brings something to the table that we are lacking and I think he would be a better addition than Moore
  16. We don't need an aging centre, we already have 5 young centres we can go with. What we do need is a big winger who can use his body and go into the tough areas of the ice.
  17. If we didn't sign Boyd we would still have Gomez, Plek, Eller and Laps. The Boyd signing just gives us more depth down the middle and the option to move Laps to the wing where he had more success last year.
  18. I'd have to say that SD RDS (I don't speak French) still beats SportsNet West in HD for the few games a year the habs are on it.
  19. Really? There only seems to be about a dozen noticeable cases of this at most, so other than the NHLPA would the players really care? I think it would be interesting to hear what most players think about these expiring contracts. Many players might even want them gone because it takes away some of their bargaining power when a GM brings up an artificially lowered number for a comparable player. An example would be if Plek was trying to play hardball and PG brought in the Zetterburg or Savard numbers and said Plek isn't as good as the why should he make more
  20. You throw down big names and seem to think that proves their worth, and at the same you imply it makes a virtual no-name (Halak) a playoff hero. If Halak can rise up in the playoffs why can't anyone else? Remember Spacek in game one against Ovy? He played ridiculous defense against him and held him without a shot all game (including OT). Remember how Hal Gill held Crosby without a goal or an even strength point in all six games they went head to head? Remember when Gorges was paired with a rookie on the top pairing against Pit with no Gill, no Markov and a hobbled Spacek and he performed beautifully? Remember how Cammy scored 12 goals in the first 14 playoff games, and how he lead the league despite going out in the third round? Roy may have had a lot of future all-stars, but playoff time is when the name on the back doesn't matter. The difference maker is the one who steps up.
  21. I realize that, it's just interesting to speculate what we could have squeezed out of Chicago. And for the record I do like the deal we made.
  22. I liked the deal when it happened, but now that Chicago has had a fire sale and walked away from Neimi you think we could have had a pretty sweet deal with them. Maybe something like Sharp and Buff (I'm not even gonna try and spell it) for Halak and a cheaper player or two like O'Byrne or Pouliot. Oh well, pointless to speculate now.
  23. Not to sure about the bolded part. When Price was playing calmly everyone said he lacked emotion, but when he played with heart (like when he fought the St, Louis tough guy) everyone was excited and the team seemed more willing to play in front of him. Besides, it can be good to rage. Does anyone remember that Rask tantrum from a couple years back? The next year he stole the starting spot from the reigning Vezna winner. You also seem to forget the fact that Price did steal us a series in his rookie year with two shutouts in the first round against Boston, one coming in game seven. We were then embarrassed in five by a Flyers team with mediocre goalie playing over his head (sound familiar?)
  24. Haha. Maybe if they sign Theo then Huet will finally step up so he can take Jose's job again.
