MORNING SKATE AUDIO: Andrei Markov | Josh Gorges | Randy Cunneyworth
Two leads, actually.
1-0 and 2-1.
It’s that kind of season.
Michalek: Sprawling stick save
DD: Backhand goal
How do you say “fook You” in Danish??
Yep, Karlsson’s a b*tch. That was lapierre-esque. Not in a good way.
Wow is Erik Karlsson amazing or what? I hope someday we draft a defenseman with the potential to be a player like him. Please don’t make a fool of yourself and mention Subban in the same breath.
Karlsson is a dick wad
… what was that little slap-fest?
Full Breezer 4 Life
9 games and counting that either Pacioretty, Desharnais or Cole has registered a point.
All year long……so many poor decisions when they have possession of the gd puck
Haha, unfortunate snot-shot there for Karlsson on the tube.
I’m not a Price hater and I know our defense has sucked crow for the better part of the year, but Price has been average with the poor defense. Kinda just looked behind hi expecting it to be there. Sigh…
Promote the Youth, Support From The Veterans and Remember the Heritage!
So Karlsson isn`t a good player, with a great shot? I see.
Maybe over the summer, this bad habit of dissecting Price might end.
Love when people start with…Ì m not a Price hater…`
“Maybe over the summer, this bad habit of dissecting Price might end.”
Haha, you can’t really believe that.
Just hoping Bill, HalakInsideOut is getting tiresome.
Unless the Blues suck it out of the ballpark in the playoffs, it`s going to be a loooooong summer.
Whitey needs to get a little practice blocking shots, all that does is screen the goalie.
“They don’t hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here”
Our nemesis, period 3.
Pricey, hmm. Haters will have a filled day talking about that other goalie we traded last night
hold your hats kiddies the tank is back on…
Kiss my hAbSS!!!
There ya go! Can’t get it out and they stand in front and it’s in. So I won’t have to worry about them getting too many wins before the end of the year. I know some of our guys deserve better. Next year then!
There’s always a fn excuse…..look ,Price is a big goalie but he plays SMALL!
Your so right Dude, goalies should be able to use the force, no idea why seeing the shot would help.
You’ve been watching the standings ,lol
But he has no problem making excuses for Bishop. Go figure!
Don’t let facts get in the way of a good Dude rant.
The dude abides…..usually good for 1 softie. Can’t remember the last time he shut the door and stole one….
The two Habs consciences at battle.
3P 10:42 I think they need another one, just to be on the safe side
No Boone – we need to tank
I’ll be honest. Been kinda sitting on the tankwagon half-assedly. This is the first game I really feel I’d rather take the loss.
Being 1 pt behind the leafs with 11 games remaining really scares me.
LOL the buffalo fans thought it was hat trick threw all the hats, to no avail. Haha, another big fire in North Tonawanda , 3 alarm fire tonight.
Edit, if you get Buffalo news you know about what that mean.s
This news report brought to you by Irv Weinstein…
Being a Hab fan is like buying real estate: only over the long-haul will you appreciate the true value of your investment.
lol, very good Chuck!
Any link to the fire news? I haven’t heard a single siren (live in NT) and my brother is the friggin’ Chief. I’m googling, but nothing.
Somebody explain to me why St. Denis keeps being sent down. He played very well when he was up before and is playing quite well tonght. I trust him more than Weber.
**DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a real pirate despite having been blown ashore many times.**
I think to give him more time to develop, no need to rush guys
He’s in his mid-20s.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised every time I’ve seen him.
I’m worried that we are gaining too many points… but Budja in for injury
Still need the high draft. Would love them to win all the games that remain, but won’t help us one bit, except maybe for the players psychology. What say ya’ll?
Agreed. We’re not making the playoffs this year. Of course it would be nice to see ‘em win them all but if we lose at this point its not a bad thing. The last top 5 pick we had was Price, before that who knows?? lol
If we draft anywhere in the top 8 we’ll get a solid pick, so I say go for the wins. Our team is young so they need to learn to play 60 minutes 82 times.
I’m with you… finishing out of the playoffs and not low enough is a real waste. maybe lose all the road games from now on, maybe that would help
I hope Louis hits the weights and gets a bit stronger and Geoffrion improves his skating…
Bishop has looked like he’s been fihgting the puck all night.
Agree, seems to try block everything with his body, not very good with his glove.
Maybe that’s cause he’s new to the NHL game ?
We’re looking good.
I’ve been saaaaved!!
—Hope Springs Eternal—
Hello, 10th place in the East.
Goodbye, Nail, Grigorenko, Forsberg, Faksa, Galchenyuk.
We’re gonna finish with Maple Leaf Trophy: 9th in the East. I can feel it.
It’s starting to look that way. Now that the season is over, we can’t lose.
If we go 12-0 we will have a 40% chance of making the playoffs.
Right now, we have a 30% chance of finishing last, 29% of finishing 14th in the east.
Never tell me the odds!
I hope not
Sens would tie Boston for the division lead with a win tonight? Hmm, nothing easy this year including enjoying the rare win
That’s how you score on a 6’8″ monster
This sucks, I want them to win but want them to lose too for the draft pick. It’s like watching Gomez play and then I feel like I have the concussion.
there you go. Happy?
Conan: Almost 20 years of pitiless cumber! No rest, no sleep like other men. And yet the spring wind blows, Subotai. Have you ever felt such a wind?
Subotai: They blow where I live too. In the north of every man’s heart.
Conan: It’s never too late, Subotai.
Subotai: No. It would only lead me back here another day. In even worse company.
Conan: For us, there is no spring. Just the wind that smells fresh before the storm.
Habs didn`t get the memo about Tanking. They dislike the Sens as much as I do.
Why do you hate them so much? They’re so bland!
haha, I don`t hate them Bill. You`re right on, annoyingly bland and because of the close proximity to Mtl., too many bland Sens fans!
DD seems to be a keeper. The little train that could. Good for him.
No if’s, and’s or but’s about it.
And the march to the 10th over-all draft choice picks up speed.
Thanks Mavid Ross and prop dude. Just got on to see Subban put it by the monster. He’s good at those in the beginning of the period.
I THINK IT MOVED A LITTLE!!!!!
Yeah, Double D.
Boone is so predictable with his next goal wins …lol
Q:who has been the best/worste 5 in value this year? (including injuries)
heres the reference:
There’s something I hadn’t thought of before about next year: TSN is reporting that the big sticking point for a new CBA is the owners might push for a percentage closer to 50%, in terms of money spent on salary out of all revenue.
This is 7% down from now, meaning a big chunk of cap space may be gone.
How do you go about trying to sign your UFAs with that over your head?
The Habs could sign a big UFA like Weber or Parise, only to find out they have to basically give away another big-name player to get back under the cap.
It would be a complete rollback of all players salaries by a set percentage as they did last time.
On the other hand, players and agents might negotiate with this in mind, and go for more, negating some of the value of a roll-back.
On the other hand, maybe we have a year-long lockout again…
What big names do they have prey tell…
Hmm, give away an expensive player, he says … hmmm. Whooooo could it be …. hmmmmmmmm
They probably would have given away that ‘expensive player’ if they could have already.
Perhaps the whole cap-floor team thing will be a pipe dream after new CBA.
Heh, I’m assuming that Price and Subban get raises, and that names like Kaberle won’t be easy to move.
Don’t know about big names… bu they have to keep Price, and Cole, and Max and PK… just for starters
basically it means the GM’s have to be careful this summer, and not go crazy or they could screw themselves.
No problem, GM’s are always careful, thoughtful planners.
haha, I’m sure some GM will screw himself, hopefully it’s not the habs.
You gotta figure the Islanders will find a way to handcuff their team for another 10 years.
Ha ha, PG leads the lemmings off the cliff.
Bill? A suave and deboner guy like you watching teen tv and judging American Idol contestants? How far the Habs have fallen for you to be commenting on someones vocals on that show!
How far have the Habs fallen? I think we all know the answer to that question!
Kirk..don’t spoil Idol for me..
Yes Mike Johnson is decent…
I took the night off so I could see Markov’s return at the bell only to see him take a puck to the face. It’s crazy there must be a bruin fan somewhere with a voodoo doll on him.
I missed the first period… I’m sure the crowd gave him a warm welcome.
They did indeed, first couple times he touched the puck they cheered
Anyone have a feed that works? TSN and Justin TV both don’t for me. Just got in and figured a little pain is good before going to sleep. Glad Cole scored, he should hold his head high and um… why is the Goat still our GM?
It’s the RDS feed though.
Don’t let the wultures getcha.
I am finding it much nicer to listen to TSN tonight with Mike Johnson rather than that goof Ferraro.He’s about as annoying as McGuire.Haven’t used the mute once.
Can’t stand Ferraro. Right there with McGuire as the most annoying Color guys in hockey.
American Idol needs a new Simon to tell this girl that she was flat all over the place on that Bryan Adams song, and her timing was messed …
American Idol? Really??
For shame, Bill. For shame.
“You cannot petition the lord with prayer!” – James Douglas Morrison
I am not watching the between-periods crap on either channel, lol.
Yes, and American Idol is the ONLY show on.
@ Mavid LOL!
You caught her Cedric comment as well eh? lol
Quite an intense game. It sure looks different without AK, Gomez and Cammy.
Not impressed with any part of Bourque’s game. Come to think of it, I can’t even differentiate any part of his game. I hope he plays with some intensity next year
“It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”
its sucked but maybe its because it means nothing to the season so far. maybe he could be the next cammi in the playoffs, who knows? there must be a reason hes paid 3.3m for four years.
And Cammy has 6 goals and 11 points for Calgary since the trade. What a bum. Nice trade PG. Hope that 2nd rounder comes up large.
I heard Tyler Myers jerseys were flying off the racks at the Bell Center the last two days!
Take away my fingers, I am not even a poster!
Bourque is having one of his better games so far with the Canadiens.
Eller has been pretty bad tonight.
better be careful what you eat Cedric…
just a few..and they are annoying as hell…
Puck in the face, phew!
Not watching for a moment. What do you mean Markov is cursed!!!?
He just sacrificed some teeth on the Altar of Blocked Shots
still, georges schooled all on blocked shots that period.
You watching American Idol?
Maybe we can throw a few refs to the lions…
Maybe throw all the Refs to the lions?
No Guts No Glory
So many good chances.
Markov is cursed
I went for a beer … what happened to him?
puck in face
Good, faces don’t usually need surgery/rehab. Esp. hockey-faces.
I can think of a few Hollywood has been’s faces that need rehab…
2nd time Markov gets a stick in the face since his return.
hahaha you should hear these stoooopid sens fans..calling price a diver..and bitching STILL about Cole high fiving the ref…man oh man someone may get hurt tonight..
The Sens have fans? No way…
LOL you are talking about your husband right now right? Or does he have friends over watching the game?
Foligno doing what Foligno’s do best. He does know his role well.
Boone: “Game needs a goal”
HF72: “Season needs to be over.”
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
every time they show maclean i think of george harvey.
Without his devestating hits Emelin is an average defense man.
Without Bossy’s goals he was just another forward.
Point? Without his courage and determination Josh Gorges is an average defenseman.
Sorry to be sarcastic-seeming, but you take away any player’s strengths and what’s left?
Take away my poignant commentary and astute insights and I am an average troll.
I am in full agreement with your final point. Nice to agree with you bud
You do realize Emelin isn’t even playing, right?
I was wondering why his name hasn’t been mentioned. Is he injured? I was stating an opinion as he seems to have quit hitting lately and his game and staying in the NHL depends upon his wicked and legal hits. And yes when you take away any players strength there may not be much left and they are soon out of the NHL or traded to someone who may take a chance on them. Allways someone waiting to take your place.
Palushaj is useless. Would rather have pyatt
I’d prefer D’Agostini.
Only a Habs fan would find a way to miss D’Agostini.
It’s less about my love for Dags and more about my disdain for Poosh.
I sense a Staubitz fight soon. It’s nice to finally know how the Romans felt during the great Gladiator days.
Neal is the Christian?
Doh! I wanted to cheer for the Christians!
Bad Christian. deserves to be eaten by a lion.
why is anybody a moron bc they happen to think Price may have embellished that a bit?
Why are people so quick to call others morons on a message board just bc others express opinions they happen not to share?
Now that I think of it, The best trade Gainey ever made was in 2007, when he gave the Sharks Rivet and a Fith round pick for Gorges and a first round pick ( Max Pac)…
Rivet doesnt play in the nhl anymore and the fifth rounder was Demers, an average defenceman
Your gonna make the anti Gainey crowd mad with that logic.
Demers is pretty solid.
Still a steal though.
DD literally suspended in air for about ten seconds there by Ottawa player … lol, how much does he weigh?
But I think he could take Karlsson.
This team has so much structure, is so smart and disciplined on the PK. How can the same team be so bad on offense, outside of our top line?
Serie A? Maybe English Premier League after watching Drogba today
How did Bourque miss that???? How?
If he’s not missing he’s hitting the post or the crossbar
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
I think Charlton says it better.
He takes over for Cammy for the chief post anf crossbar hitter.
Getting good chances is serious progress! First time I’ve noticed him in a week and a half!
I like the fact st denis is not adraid to shoot the puck.
LMAO, I’m watching Swan Lake.
What channel? I’m watching storage Wars , looking for Habs memorabilia from the 70’s
haha, I have a mini stick with Yvan Cournoyer and Jacques Lemaire authentic autographs.
I’ll give you a discount…maybe.
DO I have to bid on it?
I don`t know if I could part with it though.
How am I going to reach the remote when it falls under the couch?
I have a Wayne Gretzky stick signed by all the Oilers from 1986

Do you agree with Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin's decision to stick with a defence-first identity?
