Well, it’s last call, so to speak, for thirsty Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn (and former Habs Francis Bouillon, Hal Gill and Sergei Kostitsyn) and the rest of the Nashville Predators, the Phoenix Coyotes’ 2-1 win Monday sending the surprising Yotes into the Western Conference final against the Los Angeles Kings.

Good timing that the Coyotes’ latest stay-in-Glendale ownership group was introduced pregame by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman?

In New York, a late double-minor for high sticking to first-round Game 7 overtime hero Joel Ward proved the undoing of the Washington Capitals. The Rangers tied the game with 6.6 seconds left in regulation, then won it, still on the power-play, 1:35 into OT to beat the visiting Caps 3-2 and take a 3-2 series lead back to Washington.

Tuesday night: the New Jersey Devils can eliminate the Claude Giroux-less Flyers with a win in Philadelphia.

    …if indeed ‘the out’ for Dudley is actionable immediately …the issue becomes a matter of legality vs ethics

    …I have no idea whether Dudley, once the Weeds’ season was over, that his contractual obligations were complete, or not

    …but, it would be professional suicide to take his inside knowledge of da dasturdly Weeds draft strategy to Montreal, not to say anything about any further civil relationship (an oxy-moron ?) between The Turds, I mean The Weeds, and Nous Sommes 🙂

    …if Dudley leaves immediately to Our Team, likely it’s on the understanding He, Dudley, will twiddle His thumbs until post-draft

    …which seems, wink wink 🙂 , unlikely

    …I adore, love Burke in apoplectic-mode …don’t You ? 🙂

    3:00pm on day 6 of the Bergevin era and he still hasn’t made any moves. He hasn’t even selected a new coach yet when one of the all time top 10 most experienced and winningest coaches in the league is ready and available. Jacques Martin is waiting for your call.

    DO IT MB!!!

      Hey punkster, it’s not like to you to be an agent provocateur…am I missing the sarcasm font?

      As much as JM was loved by the cognoscenti, and for all his knowledge and conscientiousness as a coach (to which I stipulate), I can’t condone his not letting the players stick up for themselves or their team-mates. While I didn’t want him to be constantly yelling at the refs, he avoided speaking with them at all in defence of his players. There is a happy medium between having hissy fits all the time and leaving your team out to dry. If Torts and Carbo represent one extreme, JM represented the other. We need new blood.

      • HabinBurlington says:

        His sarcasm font has been broken ever since he mistakenly put his keyboard in the dishwasher. Said he did it to get the PG and JM out of it, but evidently it didn’t work.
