  1. A Buffalo win combined with us losing (even in OT or SO) will give us an official elimination. :( Buffalo will have 84 points with 37 wins if they win tonight. Ottawa has 84 points with 37 wins. If the Habs drop 1 point tonight (& Sabres win) the best possible outcome we can mathematically attain will be 84 points with 36 wins.

  2. Worst thing we can do is judge them biasedly and be dishonest because the best weapon against a Leaf fan is to be unbiased and honest.

    BAHAHAHAHA.. Brian Burke and Cherry are ringing in St. Patty's day early this year. Bunch of Mick's lol
  3. I like him but Grant McCagg (former habs scout, current TSN/McKeen's writer) is telling all who will listen that Timmins thinks Grigo is too risky and too inconsistent. I bet he's after Galchenyuk.

    I love how I find things out on Habsworld. I'm a busy man lol. Cheers. Here's to libation for our Habs. Drink a cold soldier for me Commandant.
  4. I like Grabovski's game. Always did. But please, can someone explain to me the sense in signing him for five years at over $5.5 mil per??? Am I missing something? :tigi:

    Definitely too much money. Maybe they think he'll grow but my assessment of him is he has peaked. I'm not saying he's peaked and also in decline, I mean, I don't see his play reaching another level so it's just a question of time to see if both of us are proven wrong...I doubt it though
  5. Laefs can't drop 11 points or else they max at 88. Tonights loss for the leafers is one more nail in the coffin.

    Judging by the schedule & their history with the following teams - it's a TALL order for the fLeas hahaha





    @Tampa Bay



    NY Islanders

    @New Jersey

    NY Rangers





    Tampa Bay


    They're not out of it yet but they lost tonight. Caps lost in OT (might have been a shoot out). Ottawa just scored to make it 5-3 with 7 mins to go.

    Too bad, I think I'm gonna cry :D

  6. I'm wearing my jersey & getting a lot of odd looks around where I work since the team is not doing well. I explained to my boss who was razzing me it was for Jean. I like him more than the Rocket but it's not that Beliveau was better than Maurice or vice versa, they are different types of players. Don't get me wrong, when Maurice dyked a goalie he could crash the net at the same time. He shot, he moved & fired the puck. We all know that Maurice had a fire inside him that was unstoppable.

    Beliveau was more of a magician with excellent hockey sense with and without the puck. I can't even compare them. Like I said - very different types of players. But Jean has always been the calming presence since we lost Maurice. Beliveau was in his heyday the modern day/contempory Mario Lemieux.

    I hope he's well. God bless.

  7. Acquiring another big forward & preferably a center would be nice. I like our current defence in terms of depth. Hopefully Markov can return in 2012-13. Gorges is one of the best stay at home D's in the league along with the likes of Girardi & Lidstrom. Liddy is definitely the best at that particular position. Subban tried too hard but it was a sophmore year. I am confident he will take a smart step up next year. Emelin, Diaz and Weber make for a good remaining core & then there's Kaberle but we don't know what the team is going to do with him yet so he's tough to include. Beaulieu & Tinordi being in the prospect pool is interesting in the long term. In general, things should be OK & we might pick up a UFA after the loss of Gill.

    The Habs might not need to do that much. There are too many slumps thoughout the lineup this year. Sometimes it seemed it was only Pacioretty or Cole that was scoring. As we all know what could go wrong - did go wrong it seemed. Slumps Slumps Slumps

  8. Watching Toronto & Vancouver. Brian Burke looks like he's going to have to have some pops tonight, or explode. 5-1 going into the 3rd. Habs will be 6 points back of Toronto with equal games played if the Leafs drop this game. Leafs are definitely in a goofy funk right now. Tonight is embarrasing for Toronto. Glad we face the Leafs 2 more times.

  9. Yunno, there's always been a historical notion that if a team is .5 by the deadline there's always a chance. This was even true back in the 80's. The deadline has been moved back since then. It used to happen in March. Last time I checked we are 2 games above .5

    It's a crazy season, there's over 20 games to go still. Remember San Jose last year? New Jersey's surge? They did fall short but San Jose didn't. I posted how I wanted to tank & now I'm confused. Too bad the only window to get in is to cut off the Leafs. That'd be classic though. I'd ROTF and have fun LMAO if that it happened. It's not impossible. Hopefully the Leafers have some bad games & Washington continuies their funk. I guess I'm resigned to the tank versus hope attitude and what I want. I can't control it, so why not enjoy it? Go Habs

  10. Another stake thru the heart loss. We HAVE TO own the Sens and Leafs in regulation which is why the 5-0 win was crucial. If we had lost the to the Leafers would be impossible to catch. Not now but margin for error is low - looking at the standings it seems the only way we have a chance. We have only 1 game left against New Jersey & I doubt they collapse.

    Regardless of what winning streak they may be on - a loss to the Canes canèt be allowed to happen. The window is closing more all the time. Hopefully the mettle of the Habs we have seen recently continues.
