About last night …

Budaj

It may be time to confront a question that the more jaded among us, the scars of last season still fresh, have avoided through 15 games:
Are your Montreal Canadiens a good hockey team?
An unequivocal answer might have to wait – at least 24 hours, which will take in the Canadiens’ visit to Madison Square Garden, and maybe longer.
Beginning next Monday, the Canadiens will play eight of 10 games on the road.
A good team will survive a schedule like that.
So by all means, put a bottle or two of champagne on ice.
But let’s not pop the corks just yet.

OK, enough skepticism from Donald Downer.

Your Canadiens sit atop the Northeast Division and they’re second in the Eastern Conference.

Facing the Flyers and the high-flying Hurricanes with Peter Budaj subbing for a flu-bit Carey Price, the Canadiens gave up 19 shots in each of the games. Budaj surrendered one goal to Philadelphia and hung a goose egg on Carolina.

It was the first time the Hurricanes have been shut out this season.

Was Budaj spectacular in earning First Star honours Monday night?

No. But he didn’t have to be.

The Canadiens played superb team defence, as they have in almost every game this season. Carolina had maybe five good scoring chances. I don’t think they had an odd-man rush all game long.

Not the least important aspect of the superb coaching job Michel Therrien has done this season – c’mon, now, MT-haters. Give the man his props! – is distribution of ice time among his six defenceman. No one plays crazy minutes – Justin Falk’s ToI was a ridiculous 30:33 for Carolina – and everyone, including greybeards Andrei Markov and Francis Bouillon, stays fresh.

Even through a game that was a scoreless nailbiter through 42 minutes, Therrien was able to roll four lines. They didn’t show up on the scoresheet, but the paroled Ryan White, Travis Moen and Colby Armstrong contributed gritty board work and quality minutes in a game that was a grind-it-out affair until Alex Galchenyuk set Brandon Prust up for the Canadiens’ first goal.

Galchenyuk and Prust played with Lars Eller after Therrien made an in-game adjustment. The coach reunited last season’s top line, moving Cole from Galchenyuk’s right wing to replace Eller with David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty. We’ll likely see those lines again in the Big Apple on Tuesday night.

The Tomas Pekanec line stayed intact. Rene Bourque had no hits and gave the puck away a couple times, but Plekanec was customarily excellent and scored his eighth goal on a thunderous shot that shook up Cam Ward sufficiently for the Carolina goaltender to fluff  Max Pacioretty’s attempt to channel J.C. Tremblay.

It took 15 games and a weird goal for Max-Pac to get off the schneid this season. The Canadiens will need his production through the imminent period when their schedule becomes hellacious.

My fat ass is still parked on the fence, so I’ll leave it to the Commentariat to weigh in one whether this is a good team or an early-season/soft schedule mirage.

But if you figure 55 points punches a ticket to the post-season dance, the Canadiens need 34 from their remaining 33 games to make the playoffs.

It’s do-able.

And based on what fans have seen so far – which is really all we have to go on – hockey-mad Montreal could enjoy a merry month of May.

• The Canadiens have two four-game winning streaks in their first 15. In 82 games last season, the team had one four-W streak (games 9 through 12, before everything turned to crap) … Eric Staal had five shots on goal, but linemate Alexander Semin was held to one and Jiri Tlusty had none …  Josh Gorges had four hits to lead the Canadiens … The Canadiens won 27 of 50 faceoffs. Lars Eller was 5-1, DD 7-5 and Tomas Plekanec 11-8. Alex Galchenyuk didn’t take a draw all night, but he led the team with four SoG … The Canadiens haven’t given up a power-play goal since that Sami Salo buzzer-beater in Tampa. They’ve killed the last nine straight man disadvantages … Conversely, the Canadiens power-play hasn’t scored since Brian Gionta beat Anders Lindback during a 5-on-3 at the end of the first period in Tampa … The Canadiens and New Jersey are tied for fourth in the NHL in shots against per game (26.7).

    ok , so i like this team a hell of a lot more than the last year squad…But they are still too small to go for a long run ! The playoff game like atmosphere against the Leafs last weekend proved that, however they are a lot better … mostly by the fact the everybody is contributing ( a coaches dream ) But the true tell of this season will be once they have all those road games under thier belt!!!!! with out the line change advantage i,m afraid that the Habs skill will neutralized by the other teams coach , and thus exposing once again that for the most part this team is “skilled” yes but not able to handle the riggers of the physical play .

    hope i,m wrong

  2. Michael says:

    I think so far they look like they’re actually a good team. There have not been many flukey wins whose statsheets indicate the results may have been outliers. They’re playing quality hockey to earn their Ws. Good teams can lose their mojos, of course, so this is no guarantee of future success, but based solely on this season, the results indicate a good team.

  3. veryhabby says:

    I have been saying this the last 2 weeks as us Eller fans have been disappointed that he’s on the 4th line. This is the best thing that could have happened to him!!

    Once Galchenyuk is ready to take one of the top 2 spots at center…maybe start of 14/15 season.. then the habs will have to decide between DD or Pleks for the other top O center. (my $ goes on Pleks anyday). Meanwhile Eller will be out of the equation cause he will have made a really important and nice spot in this roster for himself. He will be our 3rd line center. Strong on the D side of things, and if we are deep on the wing, then he will have some O minded wingers too. He will provide strong PK minutes, excellent 3rd line minutes and secondary scoring.

    I am not saying that Eller doesn’t have it in him to be a 2 line center. But on this team, he doesnt need to become one. Not with Galchenyuk and one of Pleks/DD also on the roster. Martin always said he didn’t know what he had in Eller. MT said he wanted to see more intensity. Now that he is seeing it, he is using Eller in that fashion, and developing him as a strong D/O minded center. With our depth we don’t need him to become a top 2 center. WOW when was the last time we talked about depth at center.

    Bournival, LL who maybe seen as 3 line centers are still a few years away. By then Eller will be known and settled as one of the best 3rd line centers in the league!

  4. krob1000 says:

    Can’t see Kovalchuk surving this short season playing nearly 30 minutes a night…..that is beyond insane for a forward.
    Pitts and Boston are the class of the East..after that the Rangers have a team that is buit from the net out which is always a good thing. They are defendable up front though as they have all their eggs in one basket…but Lundqvist can put a team on his back and especialy withat steady young d corps. Do not give them any pp’s once they get their chemistry going though.

    After those three….. Montreal is as good as anyone…and deeper than all but Boston. Pittsburgh …poor Crosby has to play with Dupuis,etc….and they have to have him jump on the ice first regardless of position so his ice time crosses occasionally with some talented players…and he still produces…amazing actually.

  5. Loonie says:

    Slowly but surely the Eller camp is growing

    • Say Ash says:

      But still not enough of a fan base to make the three stars yesterday. Ridiculous.

      • Loonie says:

        If there has been a game since the start of his career that Subban deserved a star for based on his overall play it was last night.

        I think he was the best player on the ice.

      • 24 Cups says:

        The three star selection used to be fun, even worth debating at times.

        Now it’s just an embarrassment.

        • Clay says:

          Putting it in the hands of the fans was foolish. Now it’s just a popularity contest.

    • 24 Cups says:

      We have four decent centres yet some people want to trade for O’Reilly and his steep, long term contract demands. I don’t get it.

      When was the last time that the Habs were overstocked at one position where good players were fighting for ice time (discounting Halak!)?

    • Clay says:

      I moving farther into his camp lately for sure. He’s been playing great. He’s finally making the trade for he ‘who shall not be named’ look OK.

  6. Loonie says:

    Another note about Allan Walsh. Mike Liut is allegedly Cory Schneider’s agent but Octagon Sports shows the infamous Allan Walsh as his representative.

    SHOCKING.

    • HabinBurlington says:

      Explains Liuts outburst earlier in the season, probably instructed to do so by King Douchebag.

      • Loonie says:

        You read my mind.

        Edit: Liut and Walsh work together with Octagon and Liut could well be Schneider’s agent.

        They show no exclusive client listings. All players are shown under the Octagon umbrella.

    • Clay says:

      I still don’t get the Walsh hate here. He is an agent. He was looking out for the best interests of HIS CLIENT (sorry for yelling – not directed at you; for emphasis only), and he actually only spoke the truth, and quoted some stats anyone could have read in the paper. Only in Montreal is this controversial.
      That said, I hate agents and lawyers on general principle, but just not for this particular reason.

  7. OMG says:

    Rating the players Right now I see them this way:

    1st liners: Pleks, Bourque, Pacioretty, Galchenyuk, Gallaghar

    2nd liners: Gionta, Desharnais, Eller

    3rd liners: Cole, Prust

    4th liners: Moen, White, Armstrong,

  8. HabinBurlington says:

    Rumblings in Columbus that Brassard could be on the trade block. He hasn’t put up tremendous numbers in Columbus, but then again who does playing on that team.

    I am not at all suggesting we make this trade, but the new GM in Columbus probably likes Eller given he helped draft him.

    Columbus needs to add players to roster for low dollars and move out their bigger contracts. Brassard is 3.2million caphit this year and next, then RFA.

    • Loonie says:

      If Bergevin knows what’s good for the team he’ll avoid Allan Walsh clients like the plague.

    • Cal says:

      Eller is cheaper and better. No need to make a trade right now, unless Kaberle or Weber is included.

      • HabinBurlington says:

        I was secretly thinking DD for Brassard, that way the language police are okay with it.

        • bwoar says:

          Nah, it’s more fun when that crowd gets their baguettes in a bunch.

          • nunacanadien says:

            We need to dump our small guys Gionta included. Enough of being pushed around and we all saw how Gionta, Prust and DD were basically pushed around! Our so called tough midget just was not tough enough against the laffs of all teams!

            If we could bundle Eller, DD, Gionta it would be worth it. Get rid of the deadweight because that is all they are against a real NHL team and the laffs are far from a typical NHL team anyway, but to be pushed around by them? Shame on you Bergevin! Get us real NHL players for once!

    • DDO_Habs_Fan says:

      I don’t think he is an MB type of player.

    • wildwilly says:

      I can’t remember seeing him play but Eller is 2 years younger, makes half the salary (plus is a restricted free agent afterwards), same size… To me, I’d stick with Eller.

      • nunacanadien says:

        Eller is not tough enough. You can see that against the bigger teams. He buckles under, like the rest of the team when our mighty mite of a captain ends up on his ass most of the game against equally sized or bigger teams. We need to get rid of Gionta if we hope to make the playoffs and win a cup!

    • krob1000 says:

      I would not trade Eller for 2 Brassards and I mean that.
      Eller is so good at so many things…he really is developing int o a larger Pleks…his defensive awareness and hustle is incredible and the best the Habs have had since the old Carbo/Keane days. Pleks is the “glue guy” but Eller is another glue guy that wins so many battels, maintains possession, breaks up plays, etc..that is so valuable and underappreciated. I want himt o get more chances offensviely but in the meantime I am in complete awe of his all round game of late…reminds me when I first started paying attention to Pleks away fromt he puck….they are just so good and important.
      Any team in the NHL could benefit from having Pleks…and a guy like Eller is quickly becoming that valuable.

      • nunacanadien says:

        This is only against the smaller teams. In order to win we need to have Eller show up, but like any Euro player he disappears when the going gets tough! And he comes froma tough Scandanavian background? WTF????and Therrien lets Eller be a wimp? Eller gives the puck away more when he is matched against bigger players. He can’t crash the net as he is too wimpy. Eller doesn’t use his size to his advantage. And having a captain like Gionta only reinforces the wimpy behaviours on this team of real prospects!

    • Sportfan says:

      WOuld it be wise for the Habs to pick him up with RFA coming up?

      http://nickolaisblog.wordpress.com/

    • PureGuava says:

      The new GM in CLB is also the guy that helped trade Eller in St. Louis. For me, Eller is young and cheap & has an upside that Pleks and DD don’t.

      Keep him.

      • nunacanadien says:

        Enough of this going cheap in Montreal. I’m tired of watching us buckle under as fans as we watch an ownership committee basically nickle and dime this team to death while we overpay Gionta to basically play on his arse most of the game cause he’s way too small!

  9. Say Ash says:

    Do you replace the goalie that just got a shutout?

  10. Ghosts of the Forum says:

    I think they are a good team. I’ll offer one positive and one negative.

    Negative — we don’t have the organizational depth to handle key injuries.

    Positive — we’re playing well in tight checking games. Read: playoff hockey. We won’t dominate the league by any stretch, but with Carey in net and the team D, I’m confident we can compete with any team in a seven game series.

    • 24 Cups says:

      I think we’re OK on the D with Kaberle and Weber. I would also add St Denis to that list. Tolarski was a decent pick-up.

      I don’t know when Noke will ever play but he is good insurance. Leblanc is probably our best bet in Hamilton. You have to really feel sorry for Geoffrion. I wonder if his career is over.

    • Dr.Rex says:

      Stars – Price, Subban, Markov
      Good vets – Cole, Gionta, Gorges, Pleks
      Tough guys – Prust, White, Bouillon
      Young talent – Galchenyuk, Pacioretty, Gallagher, Eller
      Underrated – Emelin, Bourque, Desharnais
      Depth players – Budaj, Armstrong, Diaz, Weber, Blunden, Moen

    A little Tuesday poem for all our favorite Leaf trolls.

    All the little Leaf fans think they will win the cup very soon
    Last cup won was two years before man landed on the moon.
    You come on this board with the stench of a dirty troll
    thirsty for a chance to make impact on the latest habs poll.
    OH the pain you must feel just to get out of bed
    you should be heading to the doc’s to examine your head.
    Your brains all filled with jargon from homers like Cherry
    IF you aren’t shaving till the next cup you will be very hairy.

  12. Timo says:

    So, is it the same lineup tonight?

  13. HabinBurlington says:

    Larry Brooks talking about Prust coming back to face his teammates tonight. When you read the article, it is pretty evident the team misses him.

  14. krob1000 says:

    Rangers are a team that plays better at home, are one of the hottest teams in the NHL right now (7-2-1 in last 10) Habs are on back end of back to backs on road. If this team manages a point tonight or even better a win it will be quite the accomplishment …and would be a great message to the team and build some serious energy and chemitry re the evenly distributed ice time. Situations like this in this shortened season are exactly the reason the teams depth and ice distribution should keep the HAbs competitive.
    Imagine a team like New Jersey who has a forward plya nearly 30 minutes most nights?The Canadiens have been taking way too many penalties and even that is not as much of a concern with those mintues being more evenly distributed as well.
    The PP is struggling, the teams top scorers are not scoring, the back up just won two in a row, Galchenyuk is still learning, PK is getting better by the game…….so many reasons for optimism right now.

    As far as I can tell there only really 3 powerhouse teams in the NHL…..Boston, Pittsburgh and Chicago. Every other team is very similar i

    • DDO_Habs_Fan says:

      What is interesting is all three powerhouses have questionable playoff goaltending. Which Fleury will show up? Rask and Crawford are inexperienced. Curious to see Prust tonight. Didn’t Sather say something about him not being a third liner?

    • 24 Cups says:

      Rob – Who can legitimately win the Cup this year?

      East – Pittsburgh or Boston, maybe the Rangers.
      West – Chicago or LA, maybe St Louis.
      Then there is the ‘anything can happen’ crowd consisting of 10 teams.

      The league reaches the 1/3 mark in a day or two. Even though it’s early, a few teams might be close to falling out of the playoff picture. That’s still the real race that the Habs are involved in this year.

      • krob1000 says:

        I think a realistic high water mark is 4th place and home ice in the first round….witht eh parity in todays game thgouh anything can happen is a lot more likely in past years. No 6,7 and 8 seeeds are not the longshots they once were to take out top teams….
        I know you and I have different vies onthe anything can happen but I look at the Habs team right now and I think it is as good as any club they have iced in the last several years.
        Pittsburgh is always in dnager of losing one of Crosby /Malkin and that ship sinking, Boston has depth and only Chara could dramatically affect them, the Rangers I think are going to be knocked out in the playoffs as they are a too heavily dependent on that one line.
        The West is the West and doesn’t really matter unles syou make it all the way and by that point teams will be running on fumes and it could go either way depending on who has survived the three rounds to get there.
        Montreal’s depth is deceiving…we all dramatically understimated the impact of a healthy lineup and noone saw the kids contributing. THe functional toughness of Prust, Bouillon, White, Bourque, ARmstrong,etc go a long way.
        We used to complain of a lack of size/skill ……the team now has Patches, Cole, BOurque and Eller……all of whom can skate, score and battle on the wall with the best of them, the team also has
        Pleks, GIo, Gallagher who all may be small in stature but are very good puck battlers and good in tight spaces, DD and Galchenyuk can create,etc You add the grinders Prust, Moen,White…that is a pretty complete group of forwards.
        The D corps while it would be nice to have Chara, Weber,etc…is not weak like everyone thinks. What they lack in size they make up for in smarts …and while Pk may not be a fighter….but he is as good of a puck battler and as strong on his skates as anyone in the game. Bouillon is tough as nails….
        Steve, I am really starting to liek this team…I never had this feeling the alst two years …but I am a becoming more of a believer in this group by the game. I was fortunate enought o have missed the tow Leafs games so I myself have not yet seen the team stink it up ..any team taht is in as many games as this group and has this start and this depth is in really good shape

  15. OMG says:

    I like our team. sure they have off nights. name one team that doesn’t. The only one I can think of is Chicago for now and their time is coming.

    we have nothing to be ashamed of. we’re holding our own in the eastern division and if we can keep doing so we’ll make the playoffs. although it’s a short season, that in it’s self would be a big improvement over last year.

    support our team. They’re having a good year.

  16. joeybarrie says:

    This team is pretty good.
    Its a long season, and we will see what happens.
    But we tend to stray from the idea that this is a decent team with lots of young talent. 4th to 6th is where we should land, if we stay reasonably fit fro injuries and we get decent production from our key players.
    I think people simply thought Bourque was useless. He needed to know his role and be coached. He had one poor season.
    People quickly forget the importance of a leader like Gionta on the ice, and the effect of Markov.
    And just because our PP in the last few games hasn’t been league leading, doesn’t mean teams aren’t worn down concentrating on it, and leaving more chances on ES.
    Same thing with Cole, DD and MaxPac. Teams focussing on killing that lines or those players leave openings for Bourque and the rest.
    Depth is the key to winning in the NHL.

    All that being said, we need to be beating the more physical teams if we are going to stay up high, and make any noise in the playoffs.

    I think we should continue to have faith in this team. Injuries killed us last season, and some of the holes we had are filled. We continue to take forward steps, and I am fairly optimistic about the future.

    A 40 goal scorer would be great as well.

    • krob1000 says:

      COunt me among teh people who thought Bourque was useless…that is a little strong but I did not think he would be as good as he is now turning out to be.
      We have added Galchenyuk, Markov, Gionta, Bourque, Gallagher, Prust, Bouillon and Armstrong to the lineup…that is pretty significant and this team is nothing like last years team.
      You add in that Eller, Diaz, Emelin and PK are all a year more experienced and you have a dramatically improved team that should be expected to contend for a mid playoff spot. Sure things could go wrong but the people waiting for the wheels to fall off should be a aware that several wheels would have to fall off as this team actually has some depth…and the future is looking better too….but I don;t see any signs the record is inflated.

      Early on when the team survived on the pp you could make a cse…since then….the pp is in teh tank, team still winning,two top scorers struggling…doesn’t matter others are helping out.
      Everyone rants about toughness…..while the team may not win a punch up with the Bruins or Leafs there is enough toughness to get by.

    • Rugger says:

      Pleks is on a 40+ goal pace for a full season.

  17. Ian Cobb says:

    Our speed and great team play kept the big boys from the Carolina hills off balance. We did not just win, we beat a good team last night, that at any time could have turned the game around.

    But as Mike says, we have to give Therrien his just dues, he out coached a very good coach last night. He changed lines and the D on the ice nearly every 45 seconds, and used his whole bench more evenly. Yes coaching was the difference last night. The boys are buying in as are the fans.

    After all these roses, it is early yet. This year we do not play one game against the west, who have the better teams in the league this year. So it is difficult to gauge how we really fair overall. Except to say that this years hockey team is a heck of a lot more fun to watch than a Jacques Martin or Carboneau team.

    Not sure how much more up side other teams are going to improve to, but I know we are going to improve as the season goes along, barring injuries to our key players.

    I just might get to see some of my HIO family in Montreal in May. I know I will have very short finger nails by that time!, but I will be able to lift a glass at Hurley’s!

    Another test tonight, enjoy!

  18. ABHabsfan says:

    I find it curious that the theme around HIO is always that we need to get bigger, especially at centre. I’m not saying I disagree I just believe there is some hypocrisy that comes along as well.
    Let’s say we get bigger at centre by aquiring a guy like R. O’Reilly, who goes?
    Pleks is our best player, Gally is the future, everyone loves DD (plus the cultural angle) which leaves Eller; who is actually the biggest of the centres and not undersized by any NHL standard.
    So is it the MVP, the Future, the only French guy or the skilled bigger guy we move to get bigger?
    My answer, nobody. These are the Habs’ centres, at least until Bournival or Dumont can take the place of DD; or the local culture can accept having no French-Canadians on the Habs

    • Habfan10912 says:

      I think we all confuse size with strength, AB. I agree that Eller and Galchenyuk go a long way in mitigating that concern. Fir me I think the higher priority might be a big crease clearing dman. Hopefully Tinordi will fill that need shortly but in the meantime it is what it is I suppose.

      ———————————–

    • DDO_Habs_Fan says:

      I think Eller would be going in the package for O’Reilly. Even so, the Habs would have to change to a 3 line attack+ 1 energy line formation to keep DD. If they want to go to 2 line attack+1 shut down+1 energy line formation, DD has to go.

      everyone loves DD? HA! Not a chance. Many do not.

      I don’t think Bournival or Dumont will ever put up offensive numbers in the NHL.

      I would easily minus Desharnias or Eller for O’Reilly.

    • habsnyc says:

      What hypocracy? Plekanec is a good center, but on the back half of his career. Galchenyuk is a handful of games into his career. It is hard to call him the future of the franchise. O’Reilly is an obvious upgrade over both Eller and DD. Were the team to sign O’Reilly, then in a few years the top two centers would be him and Galchenyuk. This would make the team big, strong and skilled up the middle.

    11 games for maxpac.

  20. DDO_Habs_Fan says:

    Everybody keeps throwing in DD names in trade suggestions but is it realistic? DD seems to be a player that has more value here (due to the market). Unless he puts up the same type of numbers as last year, I just don’t see anybody being interested. Eller, with his $1.3mill salary, should draw more interest. Am I missing something?

  21. habsnyc says:

    Balanced team, strong start, lots of confidence. Won with PK sitting. Won with Pax injured. Won with Price suffering from flu.

    They just won four in a row. I doubt they win 10 in a row. So maybe they lose a few games on the road. What I think matters most is that no one player is having an unsustainably strong career year. Diaz’s 11 assists are a big surprise, but he seems more a beneficiary of the team’s success than the prime driver of that success. The team can be this good or better next season.

    Blue, blanc et rouge. Red and White for Canada. Blue for Smurfs.

    Good job HIO!

      Now figure out a way to get rid of the trolls and children and it would be perfect, Hobie. Someone, it may have even been you, suggested that a 6 month waiting period for new members before they can post. That would end the trolls.

        Now now Jim.
        Everyone has a right to an opinion.
        No matter how asinine, narrow-minded, blinders-on, obtuse, childish or trollish it is.
        Not that anyone here ever acts this way.
        ….just sayin’.
        I’ll go back to hiding now.
