From Canadiens and Canucks practice today at Rogers Arena, in advance of tomorrow night’s game between Montreal and Vancouver:

Carey Price is confirmed in goal for the Habs.

Head coach Jacques Martin would not confirm published report yesterday that D Jaro Spacek is finished for the year. Treatment continues in Montreal, evaluations continue.

Lines were put through Martin’s Magical Mixmaster again as the coach tries to find a spark, any spark, in some guys. Today’s combos: Gomez between Gionta, Pacioretty; Desharnais between White and Pouliot; Plekanec between Cammalleri and Halpern; Eller between Kostitsyn and Moen. Defence pairings were Gill-Subban; Hamrlik-Wisniewski; Weber-Mara. D Picard and F Pyatt were the extras today.

    Phew!!  Did some figuring, and I’m 47 so looks like I’m in the clear.  Wuz worried there for a second……. .

     

    A man’s attitude… a man’s attitude goes some ways. The way his life will be. Is that somethin’ you agree with?

    The thing is you expect most of these guys to improve on their output.  More numbers like maxpacs improvement would be nice.  Especially from ak, and pouliot.  These are the young guns we want improving. we need them stepping up!  also cammy was due for a better season.  Alas.  He will pick it up here.

    Shocking isn’t it. And people listen in to my telephone conversations but I know it’s you Chuck. But I wonder, what you want, what you need. I do have an idea, but I won’t tell you, but I know you know that they know.

    You know?

    I agree that’s more then enough for anyone, but with a years work he gets a nice little paycheque to play around with. He’ll do it and if he still has the desire, he’ll head to the KHL after he gets his games in.

    This “incedent” is entirely made up. The guy cares. I honestly think Andre does too.

    Just because you care doesn’t mean you won’t struggle.

    He’s made close to $10 million the last three years. I think taxes notwithstanding, that’s enough for him and his family to live quite comfortably for the rest of their lives in Belarus.
