Habs Fan in Edmonton Posted October 21, 2022 Share Posted October 21, 2022 37 minutes ago, The Chicoutimi Cucumber said: Viewed objectively, there’s a bit too much giddiness in Habsland right now - this team is apt to win way more than it loses, and Arizona is not an NHL team. I also saw much of the same giddiness around the Subban/Patches edition of the club around 2013, and in the longer run that whole configuration somehow went sour, so we’re a loooong way from this moment - where a future core appears to be emerging and solidifying - to any sort of promised land. BUT we’re learning a few things: Wifi is one tough mofo. He didn’t just beat Kassian, he demolished him to an almost frightening degree. I guarantee you that clip is going around the league and guys are going, “whoa.” Harris - is he the next Dan Hamhuis? A quiet player who doesn’t rack up huge points but who efficiently controls the play? Slaf - I guess he’s not used to being hit like that, because he seemed to overreact to a clean check, but great that he got his first! I thought Ingram should have had it, but we’ll take it. St Louis says we’re developing a “pack mentality.” Teams like that are hard to play against, even if they lose a lot. This team is not going to win the Bédard competition, unless we get a ton of lottery luck. Or Allen gets hurt. God forbid. After last year we are allowed to be a little giddy but I hear you and agree with your points. Love the way Harris plays. I know a lot of people assume Arber will be sent to Laval once Matheson and Edmundsen come back and he will likely be sent down but he is making a strong case to stay up because he brings an element to the Habs that no one else can bring. I have no doubt many of the Habs are very happy to have someone like that watching their back. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
