  1. Subban wins it 6 minutes into the 2nd OT!!!!
  2. Glumac! scores with 8 minutes to go in the 3rd to tie it up 4-4. Stevenson with the assist. 3:30 left in the third now.
  3. Yes, JoeLassiter is this year's winner. kaos is runner up. Nobody else was really close.
  4. Wow, Mark Flood has played in the Islander last 5 games. I wonder if he can stick in the NHL?
  5. Well the Leafs now have their backs against the wall. Their chances of making the playoffs are now 4 in 100 million (against). Time for them to pull out all the stops.
  6. What happened? I guess I'm forced to use the interweb to see if I can find out if this game was played.
  7. Well I think a team's OT record predicts something about the playoffs. A good OT record in the regular season predicts a good OT record in the playoffs. There is a significant difference in that regular season OT is 4 on 4. Still the fact that we play especially well when the next goal wins the game has to be seen as a good sign for the playoffs.
  8. What does it matter if Chara has to avoid shorter people's heads when he throws hits. If Gionta hits someone low the refs still call it clipping and give him a penalty because hitting people low is dangerous. Should Komisarek and Chara be allowed to high stick shorter players?
  9. Wow. Weber finished the game +5 (and we only scored 5 goals).
  10. Actually if you watch Laps' hit closely you'll see that it wasn't really late. Nichol's shot hits the post and bounces back to him. Nichols swings wildly at the puck as it goes by and at the same moment Laps shoves him.
  11. Why wait for TSN to report it. I already told you what was going to happen.
  12. To me that was much worse than the Lapierre hit. It also did more damage and drew a penalty from the ref. But given the double standard I'm going to say he gets 2 games. I think that deserves 5 or 6 games.
  13. I betcha they don't. They left it too late. There are too many teams they have to jump over.
  14. The NHL has just announced a lawsuit against Moyes (former owner of the Phoenix Coyotes). They are seeking $61 million including $20 million to cover losses of running the team this year and $8 million to pay Gretzky what he his still owed on his coaching contract. Moyes announced he will counter-sue. I've been waiting for this. I think the NHL will prevail. Bettman and the NHL lawyers seem to know what they are doing in court anyway. I find it interesting that the league has run the team for a year (after losing most season ticket holders during the summer) and yet has only lo
  15. I really like this trade. I remember Palushaj at last year's world junior and thought he was one of the best players on the US team. I recall wishing we owned him.
  16. So you think Leclair was just a product of Lindros? This has never really made sense. Sure Lindros was a great player and that definitely helped Leclair. But before Leclair arrived Lindros was very ineffective. Why did Lindros suddenly improve once he was playing with Leclair? Leclair had great skills and he was great after he went to Philly. But he was great in the 93 playoffs too and that was without Lindros.
  17. Yeah this is what I did. I focused on a promising young guy by the name of LeClair. I watched the Habs pluck him from obscurity and throw him into the big time - and he was great. I still remember watching his 1st game - he scored twice and seeing all the raw potential he had and thinking he was going to be our next great star. Then he blossomed in the 93 playoffs and I just knew he was destined for greatness. Then he regresses a little and we throw him away like garbage. Lots of people say he only amounted to anything because he played with Lindros but I don't buy it. He always had
  18. What do you mean if I were an athlete???? I voted curling since curlers are the only athletes capable of mixing alcohol and competition at the same time.
  19. I for one did miss all the dilerations about Bob. I still miss them; those were the days.
  20. I have a very bad feeling about this. I don't think we will get anyone as good as Gainey. Remember when he came and gave the fans hell for booing Brisebois. Or when he sent Kovalev home to think. These were great moves by a great man. I'm expecting a steep decline over 3 years followed by a very depressing team for at least the next 10 years.
  21. Jist thought I'd drop a note to let you know that people do read and appreciate these game reports.
  22. The problem with keeping them both is that Halak may jump to the KHL next year and we end up with nothing for him. If he indicates he might go to the KHL then the Habs have to trade one of them. Given Price's upside I don't think we can trade him.
