    The ’93 logo was brutal anyway. How is the Boston AS logo with the “hockey-playing patriot guy” not kicking ass?

    Shouldn’t have bet your Habs I/O career-length contract.

    I hear Boone’s ony picking up offers from the Oilers and Blue Jacket’s blog networks so far.

    Don’t do it. You’ll just regret it. He did.

    Just sat there all night long with his head in his hands mumbling, “wtf have I done”, while we giggled.

    Good times! lol

    What the heck happened with Avstin??

  9. ZepFan2 says:

    Well his only kill last night was different to say the least. He was like an animal.

    To be fair, the guy should have shut his mouth about what Dexter’s dead wife could do to him. lol

    Laugh all you want, but that might happen…

    If he doesn’t play well, the Bell Center will go nuts, and who knows what will go down in this city’s downtown area following the game….

        Tinordi showed me that he has the essentials to become an NHL D man, his bad points are easily erased under astute coaching so with good development the future is very bright.

        I see him becoming a Rick Green type D with a tad more offense, i’m extremely excited.

       As for #51 that everybody is doing cartwheels over, yes he impressed me but he also impressed the Blues fans in training camp but has only been average in the AHL. The game is played in two ends of the ice and most forwards have to excel in those areas, when the season begins where ever you are there will be systems you have to compete against and that is where you prove your value to an organization.

       Your developing in the right direction Aaron, good luck in your future.

    I was there in August and it was 65 degrees!

    Was really dissapointed.

    Interesting that David Desharnais is still there no? He is a small player but he has been pretty dominant in every team he has been in. His size may catch up to him in the NHL though as it did last night apparently.

    Hi Ian,

    yes, the game is on RDS 19h00

  26. ZepFan2 says:

    That brought a deja-vu moment for me.

    I had a buddy that laid out some money on the Red sox. Was watching ’86 playoffs when Buckner had his brain fart.

    Suffice to say, my buddy lost more than his money that day. He first threw the TV over his balcony, then the couch and all three tables in the living room.

    I wish I would have had a video camera back then.

    told you gauthier had to get mayer out of here good and fast when he already clearly showed he is a better goalie NOW than price is.

  32. cerbere29 says:

    Is RDS also streaming the game?

  33. Jordio-oh says:

    totally agreed. he should have killed 6 people just to make up for all of the depressing and emotional drag on.

  34. Say Ash says:

    Can somebody explain why the weekend games were not shown on RDS and only partially at that? I can understand Molson wanting to push the Als’ game on Friday, but the other nights? Was there some high-stakes mini-golf tourney RDS had to cover?

  35. Muckbringer says:

    that RIS was god awful!! i couldnt even be bothered last night!

  36. fbkj says:

    last nights episode was a fricking buuummmmmmmmer

    it was great dont get me wrong but holy crap was it depressing…

  37. avatar_58 says:

    Think of Weber as MAB, only homegrown and possessing the ability to learn. He’ll get there, I just hope it’s with us.

  38. slapshot777 says:

    The final three preseason games are on TV. Tonight and Saturday are on RDS and Thursday is on TSN.

    Ok so if Carle EATS Weber and absorbs his super power we’d be set! Get the salt….

    I wish I could hold off and watch the whole season, it’s hard to wait every week

  45. TomNickle says:

    I think Carle has shown an NHL mindset.  I think Weber has shown an NHL shot.

    I would have no problems with Carle starting the year with the big club.  Weber, big problem.

  46. Ian Cobb says:

    So do we get the game on the tube tonight.? I refuse to watch that stupid station RIS. But maybe RDS has it tonight.!

    Oh great, put MORE pressure on the guy. Way to go Price, you made mikey leave. GOOD GAME PRICE. BOOOOOOOO

  49. avatar_58 says:

    Carle and Weber actually are quite good in the AHL. They just haven’t shown “NHL level” mindsets.

    Someone always needs a guy on the PP though, Weber might not be what we need but if he does well on the Dogs maybe the Habs can swap him in a trade.

  60. TomNickle says:

    I honestly believe that Yemelin will be offered an NHL roster spot next year.

    Carle, Ellis, Bennett, Yemelin, Subban, Gorges, Markov, O’Byrne and Tinordi.

    I don’t see Weber squeezing in there in the next five years.

  61. adam76 says:

    SO what does everyone plan to watch on TV tonight?

  62. SeriousFan09 says:

    Smith again? That guy is becoming Rick Dipietro-lite.

  63. SeriousFan09 says:

    They didn’t have much muscle last season either, just Henry and Belle so they haven’t really changed in that respect, hell they swapped Greg Stewart for a big defencemen from the Chicago Wolves just before the playoffs for extra hitting.

    See what comes out of it, I don’t expect much except maybe Weber being a PP specialist (and likely traded) or Brendon Nash becoming a 3rd-pair D for Montreal as well. It is what it is, Mac Bennett and Morgan Ellis show promise as junior players and who knows, maybe Alexei Emelin will finally jump from the KHL to play in NA next season.

    Tinordi,
    Nash, 51, and Schultz aquitted themselves quite nicely, 51 being the most impressive of them all. 

    I’m not sure about Conboy, he seems ECHL-worthy

  66. mike g says:

    I never heard him….

     

    But I guarantee if you hear Wilde do a goal-call, you’ll change your mind…

    It just seems really fake, as if he’s copying what others have done, and it’s actually really annoying.

    To Subban…..shot…SCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORES

  71. TomNickle says:

    Not really a big Streit fan so that doesn’t go a long way with me.  He is a productive NHLer but I really don’t see great things coming from that group.

    I see some struggles.  Outside of Nash and Henry, that back end doesn’t have anybody that will make players think twice about going to the net or into the corner for a loose puck.

    So does the reverse hold true if Price wins and plays well. Does Mike G not post anymore ?

    God knows you rode this complaint about Price long enough now.

    Because Cindy Crosby did it in Pittsburgh, does not mean that is the best way to do things.

    All you get is a whiney Baby who complains to “daddy” when things don’t go well.

    “AKA
    the Point. Located along the canal, this would be a great spot for a
    nice evening stroll if the threat of anal rape wasn’t so in-your-face.
    It’s slowly being cleaned up, but people who are hoping it “keeps it
    real” are just trying to sound cool and don’t actually live there. The
    main church here has a decent weekend bazaar where you can sometimes
    find weird shit. Actually this place is a dump; don’t go here!”

    MacGuire DIDNT say that PK had a place by himself. He said management would be stupid if they alloed that to be the case. and dont help to arrange some sort of place for PK like other teams do for their rookies.. crosby with mario and tavares with dough weight.

    Having said that he really doesnt like Guthier. Basically called Gauthier a liar on Melnick.

    He’s very smart, hockey wise…

    But apart from that, he looks and sounds like a douche.

    Not sure you want a guy like that standing behind your bench, lol…

    Desharnais, playing a good game, lots of energy out there. he may be small but he looks like a little water bug out there.

    Peter Svoboda lived with Serge Savard when he first came to North America. There are many, many examples and having teenagers (in the juniors) live with real families is a wonderful Canadian (and U.S. though I’m not sure) tradition.

    As for P.K., (after my own experience of having lived in Montreal as a young single man) – save us at least something for the ice :)

  130. Mark C says:

    A wee bit of a shocker that Palushaj was cut, at this point anyway.

  131. JIMVINNY says:

    Avstin, without even playing a preseason game.  Gawd, I hope he was hurt, and this isn’t another SK situation…

  132. SeriousFan09 says:

    Plenty of time for him to shake out, he wants into the NHL he’ll have to earn his shot and outplay his fellow Bulldogs over the next season or two. Habs hired a noted veteran coach in Randy Cunneyworth for the Bulldogs who was applauded for getting quite a few Sabres prospects ready for the big show.

    Habs are going to regret cutting Bisaillon for years to come.

    :(

    Keep your head up Palushaj, you’ll be back

  137. TorontoHabsFan says:

    Slightly surprised that Palushaj was sent back down at this point – I would’ve thought he’d be one of the last forwards cut.

    Avtsin not playing a game? Well let’s not all autmatically assume that he’s completely unredeemable – let’s remember that he’s never played a game on North American ice (he wasn’t on the WJC team from what I remember). Let’s take a wait and see approach – might be better to ease him into the North American game away from the absurd gaze of the Montreal media.

  138. mbplekfan says:

    Bulldogs camp will need AHL veterans in order to get started on the right note. Leaders will be needed to motivate the youngsters who may slack off after an NHL camp.

    I think Palushaj is down there mainly for this reason. He will work hard, lead by example and know that he is an early call up in an injury situation.

  139. nightmare_49 says:

     T – PK was cut at the same time last year, don’t read too much into it.

  140. coachdoug says:

    No real suprises on this list…Palushaj will be back next year for good if all goes well…

    “Six more years…God Bless You Turtleneck Man!”

  141. SensFanSpezza says:

    Ah, too bad.  I thought Palushaj played better than Eller in pre-season.

  142. Jon Hackett says:

    I don’t, he was great but he doesn’t have as well rounded of a game as Eller. I can see Palushaj being called up a few times this season (2010-2011), pretty often next season (2011-2012) and then being full time the season after that. (2012-2013), assuming he keeps progressing the way he has.

  143. Big Ted says:

    Eller was always the favorite to stay up this year. He had a little taste of the NHL last year and he’s been deemed more NHL-ready based on his play in the AHL. He’s a bigger guy with a better all-around game in the long run. Palushaj did some good things at camp, but his second game, he wasn’t as effective without Pleks and Cammalleri and he took a couple of bad penalties. If Palushaj were to stay, he’d likely be a 4th line guy, and I guess what he did in that role wasn’t enough. He would really have had to have played 2-3 perfect games to stick. Conversely, a guy like Ryan White or even max Pacioretty and Ben Maxwell have done most of what the club has asked of them, so they’re all getting another shot tonight. But as soon as one of them has an off-game, they’ll be back down too. There just isn’t room enough on the big club roster to squeeze in all the guys with potential.

  144. SensFanSpezza says:

    LOL!  Lapierre won the Jean Beliveau award for community service, partly because of his work on an anti violence and anti bullying campaign in schools.  “Just Turtle, Kids!” was his slogan of choice. 

    Seriously though good for him.  Nice to see a local guy give back.

  145. andrewberkshire says:

    “Just turtle, kids” <—Brilliant dude.

  146. TripleX says:

    I can’t believe you would say that when with hindsight it is clear mistakes were made with other young players.  It is no shame for a young player to room with a veteran for the first season at least.

    It is possible for young players to excel in the nhl without living with an older mentor. Your concerns make sense, given the success of some young players who lodged with older vets, but it doesn’t make it absolutely necessary.

    also what if his only option was spacek?

    that was a catchy one

  152. fbkj says:

    nice goal pleks

  153. slapshot777 says:

    Subban, had better concentrate on his defensive play, rather than jis run and gun play. two penalties, one for being out of position and another away from the play. The coaching staff gotta rein in his enthusiastic play. Subban got to play with more control.

  154. fbkj says:

    agreed but

    who didnt see it commin :P

  155. Bahamut-Prime says:

    I’m a little surprised Palushaj didn’t get a longer look.

    Also I never really got a chance to see Avtsin.

  156. byrneoNL says:

    I think they’ve seen what they need to see from Aaron Palushaj. That is, shows some promise. Not a lot of free spaces on the roster, and I think Mgmt has finally learned that rushing people is bad. I think he’ll be on the short list for callups this year. 

    Palushaj and Shultz, are probably 1-2 on the list for their positions. Those guys are gonna tear it up in Hamilton. I need to score tix to the exhibition games here in NL now. I’d like to get to see them play.
