    Good call ups. I like these guys but you may as well have Gomer and Gio against Lucic and Chara. Different league but these guys wil make a great 4th line

    Ooh Aah Habs on the war path

    White,Leblanc, Palushaj, and Shultz…Moen, Nokelinan, Gionta are injured. Either another forward is injured or something is up. I thought max number of players allowed up is 22-23 max at a time so when I do the math we are over by at least one body.

    I’m a HABS fan not a Leaf blower.

    No matter the record Randy Cunneyworth finishes the season with, Im glad that the youth are finally getting an overall chance to get sone more ice-time… I enjoyed the playoff run with JM, but I think he didn’t handle the young guys so well….. no surprise he got canned: Leblanc scores his first NHL goal, so you bench him in the 3rd period! Kid is already showing he’s got it.
