Canadiens turn out for optional skate

AUDIO: Jacques Martin | Claude Julien I and II (on Tim Thomas) | Tim Thomas | Michael Ryder

The Canadiens had an optional morning skate but only a handful of veterans opted for a rest. Scott Gomez, Brian Gionta and Tomas Plekanec were players who decided to rest up for tonight’s game against the Bruins.

Defencemn James Wisniewski, who has missed the past two games with strep throat, skated and is expected to start tonight. That means Alexandre Picard will watch from the press box. Carey Price will start in goal.

Highly touted Briuins rookie Tyler Seguin, the No. 2 overall pick in last June’s draft, will be the healthy scratch for the Bruins as Boston takes a look at rookie Zach Hamill on the third line. Quebecer Jordan Caron, who was recalled from Providence Monday, will play on the fourth line with Shawn Thornton and Gregory Campbell,

    Grabovski asked to be traded or he was going to the khl.

  2. 25 cups says:

    so uhhh…. who are you gonna take with you?

  3. Timo says:

    As opposed to Gomez who is all about the team.

  4. ManApart says:

    It was Fletcher who picked Gainey’s pocket, my mistake.

  5. andrewberkshire says:

    Actually Grabovski has had several problems in Toronto. He fought Jason Blake twice, Wilson reamed him in the media last year for skipping practices. But this year you’re right, he has certainly matured and he is in fact a good player.

  6. TomNickle says:

    I really like Gallagher, Ellis, Avtsin and Kristo too but it’s difficult to expect all of those guys to make it and have a big impact.  If the Kings need a shakeup and want to part with a prospect instead of a roster player I’d be hard after Thomas Hickey if I were Gauthier.  And I mean hard.  I would give him Kostitsyn, Pouliot or Cammalleri for that player straight up today.

  7. SeriousFan09 says:

    Hickey, really? The guy isn’t exactly setting the AHL on fire and we’ve got too many just 6′ or under 6′ defencemen as it is I’d say. If we want to get a defensive prospect from LAK I’d call for Teubert, Canadiens need to put size on their blue line, he and Tinordi could be a hell of an imposing duo down the line for years.

     

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  8. ManApart says:

    I didn’t compare the two. I just stated Grabs is one point back. Grabo having a +7, is excellent being in Toronto, with the giveaway gang they have on D. I will compare him to Gomez though, who is a horrible -10 on a team that is NJ (heyday) light in regards to their defensive system. i mean Grabs is at least twice the player Gomez is, at less than half the cost. Not really a unique situation, sadly.

  9. TomNickle says:

    Gomez was our only forward who showed up to play in the Conference Finals last playoff Timo.

  10. Habhopeful says:

    RFA, so a no go in that regard,

  11. ManApart says:

    That was actually pretty funny.

  12. ManApart says:

    Many experts and GM’s said they thought PG could have gotten more for Halak. PG didn’t even make any teams in the league aware Halak was on the block. How do you know, what the market could have been if there was never an attempt to create one? You think you know what you are saying, yet are speaking from ignorance. PG wanted Eller and didn’t bother to see what another team may have offered. He was so desperate to keep things quiet, he didn’t take advantage of Halak’s amazing playoff run by creating an auction. Wasn’t Mike Smith the central piece to the Brad Richards trade a few years ago? Maybe if dumbass PG would have tried, he could have gotten more.

    AS for Grabo, regardless of why he was traded, the Leafs still got a steal in the trade. it doesn’t change that fact.

  13. habs03 says:

    This is everything I hate about being a fan of the Habs, we have so many so called “fans” that talk so much yet know so little. Sometimes I wish I was fan smaller market teams, at least that why I know the people that follow the team are a bit more knowledge.  Please don’t take it personal, but you leave out the context of the trade, the Habs were coming off finish 1st in the East, Grabo proved he was not a team player, Gainey trade him for 2nd and traded that pick to get Robert Lang, going into the year we had Pleck, Captain K, and Lang down the middle, and some even viewed our lineup one of the deepest in the league, We were 2nd in the East I believe when we got hit by serious injury and lead to our down fall. And also Grabovski got 2 years to play top line minutes making mistake after mistake because the Leafs sucked so much, before this season, Leaf fans were dying to get rid of him. As for the old they got robbed on the Halak trade, go look at the goalie market and recent goalie trade, Tim Thomas could have been had for almost free this offseason, Kari Lehtonen who was drafted 2nd overall was trade for a single decent prospect.

  14. Storm Man says:

    The only one who lives in a pretend world is you btw. 99 percent of the stuff you post on here is lazy emotional diarrhea. You’re problem is that you have a diseases and it is called H.A.T.E.R.S having anger towards everyone reaching success.

  15. Bugs says:

    If Burkie gets his top draft pick back from Beanerville for Kaberle, does the pressure on Kessel drop?

  16. ManApart says:

    5 years ago maybe. Not today.

  17. Hobie Hansen says:

    Leafs didn’t steal him, Gainey didn’t want him…He’s a decent player now but at the time he was a little rat.

    as the yongsters say ” sick ”
    Have a Blast !

  19. TomNickle says:

    Didn’t he break his hand in a bar fight last year during the Olympic break?  If you’re looking for comparisons James that’s fine.  But you might want to avoid Plekanec.  Plekanec and the rest of this team are asked to be responsible defensively on top of their offensive production, that team(Leafs) wouldn’t know defense if it slapped them in the face.

    I would think he gets plane tickets also. If not 2 days non stop I would think.

  22. TomNickle says:

    If you want to get into prediction of days past I could remind you of the high regard I hold Letang in and you said you didn’t see it and would have to watch him more… ;)

    Anyway, Hickey’s positioning and intelligence for a player of his age are remarkable.  He is exactly the kind of defenseman I like so I’m kinda biased.  He doesn’t blow you away with anything other than his brains.  He does everything well.  Passer, shots get to the net, doesn’t get beat, does well on the walls and in front of the net.  He’s just good everywhere, and those are the best ones to have.

  26. Hobie Hansen says:

    I have a hunch that 9/10 GMs would still rather Gomez over Grabovski for a playoff series. That’s what counts!

  27. TomNickle says:

    I like our team, I like it going forward with possibly the most stocked cupboard other than the Kings in the league and I like that we have a centreman, defenseman and goalie to build around.  I don’t like that this team will need two more full seasons before it can compete for a championship.  It basically gives the team a one year window to win with Gomez, Gionta and Cammalleri.  After that, I hope that Eller, Leblanc and Tinordi are ready to be important pieces of the team because we’ll need them to be.

  28. TomNickle says:

    He built the team that went further than any other in 17 years.  Show some respect.

  29. ed lopaz says:

    I agree – they are along way off.

    Habs lose Markov, Gorges and Cammy and still keep winning.

    Leafs can’t seem to win no matter what combination of players they bring in.

    Habs hockey is “smart” hockey – we play 5 man defence, not just 2 – we move up the ice as a 5 man unit, we back check with 5.

  30. ManApart says:

    Still dribbling nonsense I see.

  31. Ian Cobb says:

    I will be pleased for a tie 1st period. Then we can take it to them. Stay out of the box, skate and fore check = 2 points. Another 1 goal win.!

  32. TomNickle says:

    I know who I would rather have in a playoff series.  It’s just my opinion and Grabovski may well prove me wrong someday.  But I doubt it.

  33. christophor says:

    Not only will they make the playoffs, they’ll sit comfortably at 6th.

    Ok.

  42. TomNickle says:

    First in the Eastern Conference – regular season with a novice coach who we saw turned out to be a total bust.

    Trip to Eastern Conference Final – due to team play.  Do you want me to get into the shot blocking that team did?

    Set us up with Price, Subban, Pacioretty and countless other young players and good veterans.

  43. ManApart says:

    What does that have to do with Grabs being such a better player than sad Gomez? We’re talking about this season right now, and I was talking about how good Grabs has done and how bad Gomez is.

  44. christophor says:

    with two on base.

  45. Storm Man says:

    You need a nap. and to think you spend you’re free time doing this. Seriously.

    Very cool, wish I could do likewise. Did you get the regular or VIP package?

    Go Habs Go!

    Burke just hit a homerun.

  48. Ian Cobb says:

    Question—Trade deadline date is ?

  49. ManApart says:

    It was a fluke that it worked out the way it did. He botched up 5 years as GM and then gets a pass because Halak became a God and Cammy became Jesus? His team was as embarrassed against Philly as any series the Habs have played in their History because of the enormous holes it had. That was Gainey’s team. He was the 2nd worse GM in the history of this team. He deserves no respect for that. As a player of course, but not as  a GM. In 10 years, nobody will ever think of GM Gainey as having done anything good.

  50. TomNickle says:

    Didn’t Ferguson make that Grabovski deal?

  51. fbkj says:

    lulz as always captain correct

  52. SeriousFan09 says:

    Probably, but there’s this whole issue with Chiarelli in BOS getting the Guiness Record for ingesting his own weight in Cocaine being the overriding story of the day.

     

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  53. RGM says:

    Agreed. Once I saw that the interview was being done on the phone I knew that once again the League would prove it wasn’t serious about protecting its players.

    Go Habs Go!
