And that’s where Lane Hutson comes in."
  2. Lots of positives... Habs Weekly: Another Impressive Performance From Primeau – HabsWorld.net ...aside from poor Josh & Joshua for different reasons.
  3. Darn shame KK is the 14th highest scorer... on Carolina. Smug smartass Carolina owner likely not so pleased with that deal.
  4. Eriksson 0pts 14:17 in win, up 3-0 in series Engstrom 0pts 4 shots 27:53 at end of period 5. Kapanen 0pts 2 shots 18:19 9/22 in win, up 3-0 in series
  5. dlbalr was talking about Guindon, not Xhekaj
  6. 2024 NHL Draft ranking: Macklin Celebrini leads Scott Wheeler’s March top 64 prospects - The Athletic Another draft ranking, Wheeler's; (Seems he likes Eiserman more than most, i do hope some other team takes him and not the Habs)
  7. Quinn Hughes on being small offensive d-man going form NCAA to NHL. Canadiens weekly notebook: An awkward milestone, an endorsement for Lane Hutson and more - The Athletic “I figure why you’re asking, but I’m sure he’ll figure it out and he’ll be fine.” "He, of course, is Canadiens prospect Lane Hutson, a similarly undersized offensive defenceman currently completing his season at Boston University. Hutson’s name was never mentioned to Hughes, but he had no problem identifying the reason behind the question. Hutson has been compared to Hughes for years, and Hughes clearly knows it." “Right away, for the most part, I think I felt very confident. My first year couldn’t have gone better. I had a great season, and the second year, we struggled. I thought my third fourth and then this year have been really good. It’s just about building,” Hughes said. “Lane’s going to … it’s not about how good he is at 20 or 21, it’s about how good he is at 25, 26. I tell my brother Luke that, focus on one foot in front of the other, and he’s having a great year, too, but just keep grinding so that at 23, 24 you can say you’re one of the best in the league."
  8. Can Bogdan skate at NHL speed? Seems biggest questionmark. https://www.habseyesontheprize.com/bogdan-konyushkov-season-grade-montreal-canadiens-prospect-analysis-stats-development-khl-defenceman-projection-strengths-weaknesses/
  9. Ylonen with 4 shots and bit more icetime. Slaf's last few games, producing vs some good teams..
  10. All 3 prospects up 2-0 in playoff series Habs Prospects March 25 games Färjestad BK at Rögle BK 2:00 pm - SHL Quarter Final (best-of-7) (Rögle leads series 2-0) Adam Engström - Växjö Lakers HC at Luleå HF 2:00 pm - SHL Quarter Final (best-of-7) (Växjö leads series 2-0) Filip Eriksson - KalPa Kuopio at Ilves Tampere 12:30 pm - Liiga Quarter Final (best-of-7) (KalPa leads series 2-0) Oliver Kapanen - End of CHL regular season Ontario Hockey League Stats Player Team GP G A PTS +/- PIM Beck, Owen Saginaw 57 34 47 81 +26 18 Xhekaj, Florian Brantford 63 34 31 65 +17 79 Guindon, Cédrick Owen Sound 68 26 31 57 -30 22 Mešár, Filip Kitchener 45 19 33 52 +7 12 Sobolev, Daniil Brantford 64 7 18 25 +6 63 Beck vs Guindon in 1st round KItchener vs Erie Bulldogs vs 67s
  11. Holy moly! Xhekaj 2g3a 7 shots 7/11, 1st star of 5-1 game. Brantford Bulldogs at Ottawa 67's - Sunday, March 24, 2024 (chl.ca) Beck 1g1a 1 shot 4/10, 1st star of a 9-2 game
  12. I meant. Why dont they (St Louis) play Ylonen over the slug forwards that are getting more icetime, to finish off the season and see what he can do with 14-15 instead of the 10:13 minutes/game and some more PP time?
  13. He has nice numbers, but so did Primeau and have to think is 0% chance of him turning pro this year. Fowler 29-5-1 2.19 0.925% Primeau 44-18-6 2.00 0.932%
  14. I know he has big contract; but, AHL time seemed to of given Armia a wake-up call (your career is tanking... gotta work harder or smarter!). At some point, you have to sit him or do something different dont you, Torterella would!.
  15. Fowler had another solid game and some nice saves to beat Hutson/Tuch for 3rd time this year. Jacob Fowler Makes Save of the Year - 29th Win is a Big One vs Lane Hutson (1A)/Tuch Smash 3-23-24 (youtube.com)
  16. Knowing training camp may be deciding factor if he plays in Laval or Europe, wouldnt another year there be fine for his development anyways?
  17. Not sure what you mean? Canadiens’ offseason will likely be dictated by how they manage their greatest strength - The Athletic If stuff Hutson, Reinbacher & Engstrom in Laval for a year, then just have 9 others to shuffle. Can you play both Struble & Xhekaj as your #2 and #3 LH-d? Supposedly Engstrom has played right, as has Harris & Guhle.
  18. Xhekaj 1g (32) late 3rd Beck 2a late 3rd BC beats BU 2-1
