Habs Future

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) checks in with his weekly look at Canadiens’ prospects.

THREE STARS

RW
Aaron Palushaj
jumps
out to prominence this week by continuing to surpass his rookie season totals
as one of a few able scorers for the Hamilton Bulldogs, scoring three goals and
two assists. Palushaj began his scoring on Wednesday, scoring a late goal to
force overtime and an eventual shootout, which Hamilton loss but his goal
provided his team their overtime point. Palushaj went pointless on Friday and
assisted on the game-winning goal on Saturday. Palushaj’s true scoring outburst
came on Sunday at the end of a heavy schedule, which became an eventual loss
but his efforts were not to blame. Palushaj scored two goals and one assist in
what became a 6-5 loss, it was his first three-point game since November 3rd.
Palushaj’s scoring output this week has more than doubled his goals output from
last season with 17 goals in 57 games, compared to 8 goals in 64 games last
season.

2.
LW Andrew Conboy
had
his best offensive week of his Hamilton Bulldogs career, scoring two goals and
two assists and raising himself to his first season to go over twenty points.
Conboy scored a goal on Saturday to help his team to a 3-2 victory but went
beyond his normal contributions on Sunday. While the team lost the game, Conboy
was hardly to blame as he opened the scoring a mere 11 seconds in to the match,
than later assisted on two goals to help close the scoring in a game that
eventually got away from the Bulldogs. Conboy’s recent scoring outburst had him
snap a 14 game goal scoring slump and he’s now doubled his assist total from
last season.

3. RW Ian Schultz jumps out of the bubble
group this week, finally adding some points after mostly being interested in
building up his AHL fight card with the Hamilton Bulldogs, he’s now had fights
in 37 games in his rookie season. Schultz assisted on a late goal on Friday in
a 4-2 loss for Hamilton, having his first point in his 35th game of
the season after having two fights earlier in the game. Schultz than scored the
opening goal on Saturday for his team, than scored the final goal for Hamilton
in a 6-5 loss on Sunday afternoon. Schultz’s two goals and one assist have him
on a remarkable 3-game point streak considering his season.

    An accident can challenge anyone.

  2. Timo says:

    I don’t think anyone has… Chara is a freak of nature.

  3. observer says:

    schenn cost him 2 goals. and has been doing that all along.  might have a lot of ability but still is very green – schenn and probably reimer too.

  4. SmartDog says:

    Wasn’t Kariya hit by Stevens? 

    I guess you never know, but I can’t recall seeing anything like that hit from anyone who didn’t show significant effects…. though I haven’t seen many hits that LOOKED that severe. 

  5. SmartDog says:

    Guys I need your help.  Three IMPORTANT things on my mind tonight….

    1. What happened to Ramo?  He was doing sooooo well!  Did he choke or did the team collapse?

    2. Patches. I love Patches, everyone does, and we miss him…  and we ALL want him to make a full recovery… but is that medically possible?  We saw the hit, I want to believe but my (passing but interested) knowledge makes it hard to believe.  So is it possible he can be the player he was and person he was?  Anyone?

    3. A lighter question… I saw a short clip today and is there anyone more AWESOME than whichever freakin’ Sedin (grow a different bear guys!) is speaking out against head shot and who said (paraphrasing) “how can you say Chara has no record of this and then not give him a suspension this time so he still has no record – so when does he get a record”. 

    ANYONE?

    Thanks,

    SD

  6. G-Man says:

    Awww, da poah wittew weafs got spwatted again. What a shame!

  7. OneTimer says:

    Thanks yet again for the write-up, SF.

  8. REB says:

    2. Eric Cole (Carolina), came back from a broken neck and plays for Carolina this season.  Not the same player he was before the accident, but still a passable player.

    3. Agree completely.  If you never book him, he never has a record!

  9. Les Habitants says:

    Sorry to go off topic but I have a question and need the help of some die hard Habs fans.

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a different name or somewhere to download the Habs song ” Les Canadiens Sont La”. The song played before the last face-off of a Habs win (I’ll never forget hearing it with 40s left in game 5 of the 1993 Finals!)

    Its a fairly well known tune, so I figure maybe there’s a different name non-Habs fans call it?

    Thanks!

    PS- always appreciate the heads up on our future Habs Robert, thanks!

     

     The last time the leafs won the cup it was still just a bowl!!

  10. Wayne says:

    Just dropped in to thank SF09 by contributing to HIO in this manner, it brings another (important) facet of the organization to us. I must admit though, I usually just gloss over it. All the same, it’s very useful. You’d think he’s a serious fan or something….

  11. Habsrule1 says:

    This is an awesome feature. Thanks to HIO for having it, but thanks mostly to Robert for providing some excellent information about the Habs potential future players.

    Maybe Schultz would be a decent addition next season or the season after. Anybody know how he’s been doing in his fights?

    Excellent News About Brendan Gallagher:

    He is symptom-free with no post-concussion issues and may play this Friday.

     

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

  13. SeriousFan09 says:

    Schultz is a tough customer in a fight from all reports, but he has a lot of conditioning to do and more work to actually playing the pro game to do. He’s likely taking two more seasons in the AHL IMO.

    You can visit Hockeyfights.com for video of his fights, or just put his name in to YouTube.

  14. Wayne says:

    woops, was suppose to be a reply to a post…

  15. Strabo says:

    What do they feed those boys on the WHL? I thought for sure he was gone for the rest of the year.

  16. SeriousFan09 says:

    Fortunately, it was a very mild concussion if he’s ready to go too soon. This is excellent news for his future, missing the rest of the season and the playoffs would have held him back in his development.

    Looks like the Lightning will be 4 points ahead by the end of the night. The Laffs can’t do anything right.

  18. observer says:

    sounds like he and conboy would be good additions for the march 24 game?

  19. JohnBellyful says:

    NHL finally getting the message …

    NEW YORK – The National Hockey League has bowed to fierce criticism over how it disciplines players who commit violence by announcing it intends to use the strap.
    “We get crucified for giving players a slap on the wrist,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said. “Well, now it’s going to hurt.”

    “Fines don’t work, suspensions don’t work, and for some odd reason, non-suspensions don’t work, so we’re introducing corporal punishment,” Bettman said. “It’s not quite eye for an eye but it might satisfy fans wanting to settle scores.”

    The league unveiled a chart showing the strap will be administered according to the severity of the offence: hitting from behind – two whacks; elbow to head – two whacks; stick to head – two whacks; questioning league rulings – five whacks; saying disparaging remarks about players’ girlfriends – five whacks.

    Repeat offenders will receive an additional two whacks and a strongly worded letter of disapproval from vice-president of hockey operations Colin Campbell.

    “I think this shows the world we mean business,” Bettman said. “We looked at spanking but we decided we had to uphold the dignity of the sport.”

    The National Hockey League Players Association reserved comment until it had time to examine the leather strap that will be used to carry out the league’s new disciplinary policy.

    Bettman also announced the NHL will employ off-duty cops as referees, to forestall intervention in league affairs by authorities alarmed by the increase in on-ice thuggery.
    “The new officials, who will be armed, will not only call penalties but they’ll also to be able to lay charges at the same time,” Mr. Bettman said.

    This will double the paperwork of official scorers, as they will have to maintain two sets of documents: score sheet and rap sheet.

    Bettman said if the two measures do little to reduce player injuries, the NHL will consider changing the ice surface from rectangular to circular.

  20. Bill says:

    6-2 now … Reimer allowed five and got yanked. I don’t know if his bubble is bursting, but I wouldn’t blame him for the goals personally. Lousy coverage.

    Leafs fans will have to wait a few days before being obnoxious again.

  21. observer says:

    probably his first, by the time theyve played a few years theyve suffered  many.

  22. _Habsoloutly_ says:

    Red light Reimer strikes again! Where’s Observer??  How come he only shows up to crow about the Leafs on the nights Reimer wins and disappears nights like tonight when he lets in 5 goals?

  23. SmartDog says:

    LMFAO

    “The National Hockey League Players Association reserved comment until it had time to examine the leather strap that will be used to carry out the league’s new disciplinary policy.”

    That’s brilliant satire.  Very funny.

  24. observer says:

    Yeah right! BUT if it is my friend Jeremy Jacobs’ player and he is important, it merely was a hockey play!

  25. observer says:

    Price never was pulled? Or Roy? He surely wasn’t helped by Schenn especially and Phaneuf and the others tonight.

  26. observer says:

    SAY WHAT? CHECK THE TIME OF YOUR AND MY POST————YOURS-20:43—-Where’s Observer??  How come he only shows up to crow about the Leafs on the nights Reimer wins and disappears nights like tonight when he lets in 5 goals?—-MINE-Submitted by observer on Mon, 03/14/2011 – 20:35.
    bad game by reimer. schenn is very over-rated- still makes too many mistakes.

     

     

  27. Bill says:

    Well, there is still plenty of hockey to be played, but most of these teams are pretty consistent and it’s hard to make up ground this time of year. Looks like Habs – Bruins, the main question being who gets home ice. If the Habs can get the advantage you have to think their chances are good in that match-up.

  28. Storm Man says:

    Tony pop a few acetylsalicylic acid tablets and chill out.

  29. SeriousFan09 says:

    1. I don’t watch the KHL really so hard to speculate, but his GAA, Save % on the week were pitiful. Good news, is last time he got yanked it became part of the run that saw him nearly undefeated in regulation for the rest of the regular season. Could be a bit of both, Omsk has had a lot of trouble scoring in post-season so far.

    2. I believe someone posted up that for anyone suffering a severe concussion, it’s a six-month recovery period according to the AMA for athletes to safely resume competitive play. Pacioretty’s injury is possibly in that range considering he was unconscious for several minutes. So far there seems to be no lingering post-concussion issues at this time and I believe this was his first concussion so he could come out of his very much who he was, but again Paul Kariya was never the same after Gary Suter as some have mentioned.

    3. Henrik Sedin said it and he was right on.

     

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

  30. von says:

    Man, what happened to Avtsin? I remember so much hype around him at training camp… I guess reality sets in quick. Maybe he’ll settle in next year.

  32. Bill says:

    1. Beats me! Ask Sarah Palin, I can’t see Russia from my house. (Just kidding VancouverHab)

    2. Pacioretty has a grade 4 concussion, based on being out cold for several minutes and memory loss. The doctor I spoke to said everyone recovers differently, so it’s really just speculation. He could actually be back next year with no issues or never play again. But if he comes back and gets another bad one … the injury is compounded.

    3. A more telling comment from Sedin, not buying Chara’s “I didn’t know the stanchion was there” line: “You play this game for twenty years, you always know where you are on the ice.”

    He was, here’s the hit, totally a late hit by Stevens:

    I know this is going to cause some people to choke on their bedtime tea but if I were Max I’d be thinking seriously about getting back into school. Time for a career change.

    ***STOP THE MADNESS***

  36. SmartDog says:

    Thanks.  Though I remember it well, and don’t need to see it again.  Kariya came back and scored a goal minutes after.. the winning goal I think.  Very dramatic but he shouldn’t have been playing. 

    And Stevens retired from post-concussion syndrom from someone ringing HIS bell.  Just desserts.  And then they put the bastard in the f-n Hall of Fame.  Should be in the Hall of Shame, the guy made an art out of causing brain damage in other guys.  Gos to show a lot of people love the gore…. they voted him in with no protest about his actions in ruining other careers.  Who votes for that – sportswriters?

  37. Mark C says:

    I think he’s having an okay season all things considered (19 yrs old, first N.A. season). Artem Anismov had a 70-16-20 season under the same circumstances; today he’s a 22 yr old who is fifth on the Rangers in scoring. Avtsin is going to take some time, likely two more years in the A. 

  38. Timo says:

    Nasty hit… However, did anyone notices just before the hit what was that wearing #23 for NJ turning the puck over?

  39. SmartDog says:

    Add to that Chara’s lie about not knowing who was on the ice.  F-n liar.

    One thing that really shows Chara’s character is his quote after about being sorry that “he got hurt”.  Like a meteorite fell on him.  No ownership, no real remorse… so passive.  He’s such an a-hole. Unbelievable really.

  40. SmartDog says:

    Didn’t Gomez wear 23?  Oh man, that guy’s like the Forrest Gump of turnovers.  FACK.

    Thanks Robert – excellent work as always.  :)

    Question for you, what possible movements can you see ?

    Paslushaj to MTL for playoff push ?

    Yemelin to Hamilton to AHL playoff push ?

    😀 (one can dream) lol

  43. Timo says:

    It was not a trick question SD – I was referring to one and only turnover machine Mr. Scott Gomez.

  44. christophor says:

    not this year he wasn’t

  45. drivefor25 says:

    Great post! Love your tongue-in-cheek “news” stories. Although the NHL is so ridiculous these days, the line between satire and truth is becoming blurred. Can you imagine Chara on the witness stand, under oath, trying to explain how he had no idea it was Pacioretty on the ice?

    Fan since ’71

  46. Habitall says:

    Hmmm … I thought Scott Gomez said that Stevens may have hit hard, but always clean. Yeah, right. Buddy used to try to kill Lindros by submarining him, and here on Kariya that’s clearly an elbow to the head.

     

  47. naweed235 says:

    straight to number 2 : I am studying medecine and although I am really not experienced, here’s my take on it:

    Theoretically, a grade 4 concussion causes some permanent dammage in the brain (some more serious, some that are irrelevant to a person’s day to day life and in his case athletic performance). Now the thing with grade 4 is that if the symptoms such as headache, nausia etc. are not manifesting within the first 48 hours, the level of concern is much lower and a close to 100% recovery is possible. From what I heard, this was the case with Max… so, he could very well just shake it off and be back on the Ice by September. Obviously, there is the mental aspect of his game that could very well change after experiencing a serious trauma… so who know…

    here’s to hoping he can be back 100% and rock the Bell center soon

  48. Habitall says:

    Gotta say, I’m wondering just how bad that toe frostbite could be? It seems like months since Kristo played? What exactly did he do, run around Sioux City naked … all night?

  49. tippytoes says:

    PG should make attempts to sign Emelin if his team gets eliminated from the KHL playoffs. It would give the Habs some depth for a good playoff run.

     

  50. habs001 says:

    tampa bay no pp opportunities…leafs 3…..while not putting them in the playoffs this type of ratio for the leafs makes no sense…yet it happens most games…sadly we have no journalist in canada who have the balls to dig into this and at least come up with some answers..

  51. ari says:

    I cant wait for the  next game with bruins,too bad we dont have any one to challenge chara.

  52. habstrinifan says:

    Not out of the question. This is one of the more tragic aspect of the entir eincident, if Max Pac doesnt recover fully.

  53. habstrinifan says:

    Thanks for the updates Serious fan09. If I hear te word concussion one more time though I think I will scream.

     

    Serious thought must be given to the equipment today… something is terribly wrong.

  54. Timo says:

    Maybe he should become a lawyer and sue the f out of Chara in a civil suit. Take Chara’s livelihood away.

  55. ari says:

    u mean,hockey game

  56. christophor says:

    No I mean an accidnet occurring in a hockey game, possibly involving a stick or skate.

  57. pmaraw says:

    not to mention his roman grecko wrestling background.

  58. VancouverHab says:

    Ha ha! (But then, you can’t see the radioactive dust cloud drifting over from Japan either ;–)

  59. SeriousFan09 says:

    KHL contracts do not expire until April 30th and Clear Day lists for the AHL have already been submitted. Not sure if that can be swung with Yemelin.

    Paluhaj is a possibility though if he keeps putting up points.

     

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

  60. SeriousFan09 says:

    He was also hit by Suter I’m pretty sure, wasn’t his only concussion (and his latest one has him off the for the year trying to recover but he’s likely done).

     

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

  61. SeriousFan09 says:

    Avtsin is a 19-year old playing in NA for the first time as a pro, he’s going to take time, raw skill and size but he’s got a good upside.

     

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

  62. SeriousFan09 says:

    Anything that affects the extremities can take a while, he had full use of all of his toes after treatment from reports and the latest I’ve heard is and he’s done some skating since then.

     

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

  63. G-Man says:

    Why? Because he plays ok in the KHL- the equivalent of a watered-down AHL?

  64. G-Man says:

    Brian Savage.

    Really like how Max was playing, but this is something that should make him change his career plans.

  65. SmartDog says:

    Intersting, thanks Naweed.

    Here’s a grad school type question for ya…. so obviously the lack of lingering symptoms is a good sign, but is it strongly correlated with negative findings in other areas of some kind of brain damage or does it just allow the recovering patient to resume activities more quickly? I’m suree there are papers on this… if only I had a database to look them up.

  66. Bill J says:

    I think Tony was poking a jab at Price for last year.

    What Tony seems to fail on.

    Price > Reimer + Gustavson + Giguere + their next best option.

    😉

Habs Future

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) checks in with his weekly look at Canadiens prospects.

THREE STARS

1.  G Karri Ramo continues to build on his excellent KHL season, the league leader in regular season wins had a long, tough week but rallied to ensure his season was not over. Ramo spent the week backstopping his team Avangard Omsk to victory in their initial playoff round and collected his first-ever KHL playoff series win. Ramo posted a 3-1-0 record in the final four games of the playoff series, with a 2.25 Goals Against Average and .902 save percentage. Ramo’s steady presence in nets was crucial as his team battled back from 2-1 and 3-2 series deficits to finally win the decisive Game 7 after a lack of scoring in the first five games of the series. Ramo’s total playoff statistics stand at 1.98 for Goals Against Average and a .916 save percentage with one shutout. Karri Ramo was received in a trade that that sent undrafted free agent goaltender Cedrick Desjardins to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and was drafted in the 6th round, 191st overall in the 2004 Entry Draft.

2. RW Aaron Palushaj has struggled through the season with
finding consistency, but his contributions have become key in the
Hamilton Bulldog’s victories of late. Palushaj collected two assists on
Wednesday night contributing to a 5-4 victory, went without a point as
his team was shut out on Saturday and then scored a goal in an eventual
3-2 overtime victory on Sunday afternoon to help his team collect four
of a possible six points for the week. Palushaj’s two assists raised him
to 25 on his season, surpassing his previous season mark of 24 assists
in eleven fewer games. Aaron Palushaj was acquired in the trade that
sent Matt D’Agostini to St. Louis and was drafted in the 2nd round, 44th
overall in the 2007 Entry Draft.

3. D Brendon Nash spent
the week building on his strong rookie season with the Hamilton Bulldogs
that has made him their leading scorer from the blue line. Nash had a
single assist on Wednesday night in a 5-4 win by the Bulldogs, was held
without a point on Saturday but in dramatic fashion in overtime on
Sunday, scored his first overtime goal in the AHL which was also his
first game-winning goal of the season. It was Nash’s fifth goal of the
season, which is more than double his goals output from his last two
seasons of NCAA hockey, he also leads the team with a +15 rating on his
season. Brendon Nash was signed as an undrafted free agent on March
30th, 2010.

WORTHY MENTIONS: D Morgan Ellis added an assist on his week to reach consecutive 25-assist seasons in the QMJHL. Bubble prospect LW John Westin has scored 6 goals in 9 games in Swedish Under-20 Hockey since returning from injury this season.

QUESTION MARKS: RW Alexander Avtsin has not scored a goal since December 14th. C Michaël Bournival has an undisclosed injury, he is expected to be out for at least two weeks. RW Brendan Gallagher suffered a head injury on Saturday, there is no update on when he will be able to return to play. RW Danny Kristo is recovering from frostbite on his right foot. RW Maxim Trunev’s season has ended in the KHL, his team was eliminated in the first round of the KHL playoffs, he had no points in 6 playoff games and was -3.

    created attainable to testers this week a brand new beta develop (2.0.522.0) of its up coming release of Microsoft Protection Essentials (MSE), the company’s free anti-virus/anti-malware product for Windows. November 9, Microsoft began pushing out via Windows Update a “beta refresh” of that product. (One of my readers said this technically is the Release Candidate establish of the new MSE, but Microsoft officials are not calling it that publicly.) delivered the first beta of the new MSE in July 2010. At that time,win 7 64bit key sale, the Softies said the new version would include: Windows Firewall integration (allowing users to turn on or off the Windows Firewall during setup)
    Internet Explorer integration for additional protection against Web-based attacks
    An updated anti-malware engine with “enhanced detection and cleanup capabilities with better performance”
    Network inspection system functionality to help fend off network-based exploits new Microsoft Knowledge Base article out that describes what is part of the MSE beta refresh. According to that article, the refresh includes “improvements to the quality of the product including performance enhancements as well as some user interface modifications.” The product team has removed protection against web threats feature in the Protection Essentials Beta “as it was causing PC performance issues,” according to the article. to WinRumors.com, Microsoft also has added new mechanisms to help thwart Windows 7 activation-bypass hacks. If users running the new MSE on their Windows 7 machines cannot pass Genuine validation and do not resolve the issue,win 7 cd key sale, after 30 days, MSE will be disabled, according to WinRumors. Microsoft is denying that the new beta includes any activation feature changes. From a spokesperson: “Microsoft did not make any changes between v1.0 (SU2 in Feb 2010 to be exact) and the current version of the beta of v2 regarding Microsoft’s genuine check mechanism. Nothing has changed and this is not new.” officials — at least up until today — have been saying they expect to release the final version of the updated MSE to the Web later this calendar year. (The aforementioned reader said that general availability may not happen until January,discount microsoft office 2010 cd key, 2011.) Microsoft didn’t respond when I asked about this officials are now saying MSE 2 will be generally readily available “when it is ready,office 2010 Professional Plus activation,” and aren’t commenting further. released the near-final Release Candidate test version of paid Windows protection product, Forefront Endpoint Protection, at the start of this week. FEP is slated to be released to manufacturing before the end of calendar 2010. (originally codenamed “Morro”) originally was aimed at Windows users who are unwilling and unable to pay for security software. Enterprise officials have said they believed it was worth offering customers a free product to help thwart protection breaches on unprotected Windows PCs that potentially could be used to infect other users’ systems. the introduction of the first version of MSE,office 2010 Standard code, Microsoft has stepped up its marketing of the product and is now making it attainable for free to small businesses with 10 or fewer PCs. Some of Microsoft’s antivirus/anti-malware partners and competitors have been none to keen on Microsoft’s decision to make MSE out there via Windows Update.

    test builds of Trade Server 2007 Service Pack (SP) one and PerformancePoint Server 2007 are both equally heading to be to choose from to testers for obtain this week. posted on August thirteen the Trade 2007 SP1 “Technology Preview” (a k a Beta 2) bits for download. New in this feature-complete build is support for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista (from an administrator’s perspective); integration with Office Communications Server 2007; new administrative policies; and support for standby replication. this Technical Preview build,microsoft office 2007 Ultimate code, Microsoft is making the test version of the company pack accessible to Microsoft Developer Network and TechNet subscribers.

Microsoft will make the new build offered to selected testers for download from the Microsoft Connect site, according to a posting on PerformancePoint Channel Development Manager Ben Tamblyn’s blog. new PerformancePoint build includes new monitoring and analytics features, including support for Excel Services as a data source. it announced its plans for PerformancePoint 2007 in June 2006, Microsoft officials said to expect the final version of the product to be released in mid-2007.

    Last fall, Microsoft announced its intentions to provide a free of cost replacement for its OneCare antivirus/anti-malware item for Windows Pc individuals. As then, small business officials repeatedly have refused to supply any significantly more information on Morro’s status (beyond the promised Q2/Q3 2009 launch date). would stand to reason that date must be close, given that Microsoft has been removing OneCare from the channel for the past couple of months. And,office pro x86 key, as one of my readers noted today: thought OneCare was supposed to die in June, and working for a small business, I’m trying to figure out if we can play wait-and-see on it or if we really need to plunk down $1k for antivirus licenses for everybody. (Right now we’re not running anything! Eek!)” reader,microsoft office 2007 Pro keygen, OneCare is only available at retail through June 30, 2009. But I haven’t been able to get Microsoft to supply any guidelines on when and whether the company planned to launch a public or private external test build of Morro. (I ask periodically, to no avail.) Reuters seemed to have far more luck: Microsoft spokesman said on Wednesday (June 10) that the world’s biggest software maker is testing an early version of the solution with its own employees. Microsoft would ’soon’ make a trial version,microsoft office pro 2010 product key, or item beta, available via its website, he added,buy win 7 generator key, but declined to provide a specific date.” is being marketed by the Windows Client team, but is being developed by Microsoft’s Forefront security team and is based on the Forefront antivirus/anti-malware engine. Microsoft’s reasoning for going from a paid subscription service to a free Morro client: By getting Morro on all consumer PCs, especially those whose users may not have the money or interest to run antivirus/anti-malware software, that it will be able to better secure the entire Windows ecosystem,office 2007 Pro Plus activation key, sounds as though Microsoft may have told some bloggers/press about its rollout plans for Morro under non-disclosure. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Softies supply the Morro beta in the coming days… are you hoping/expecting to see in Morro?

    Tampa Bay stinks! They have no defense. Those defensemen kept coughing up the puck to Ovechkiin not because of his great effort but because they absolutely reek! Yzerman will go after all those Habs free agent defensemen Markov, Wisniewski, Gill, Gorges RFA, and Sopel. Washington NOW found A GOALIE- HOLTBY – just like Leafs and Reimer they don’t grow on trees and they finally have one now! A half dozen players including Green were out today. Washington playing this defensive style like the Habs are the most scary Eastern playoff team.

    We could take either team in a best of 7 I think. Shut down the superstars, the rest is easy.

    but you know what i love about your posts… is that they are always so extreme lol

    either a team sucks and will forever be the scum of the nhl

    Remember when Ty Conklin won 9 games in a row, and went 18-8-5 leading the NHL in save % just 3 years ago?

    10 games hardly defines a a longterm superstar.

  14. observer says:

    Same as Reimer in Toronto the record does not lie, Holtby is now 5-2-2 for Washington – both these teams have finally found their longterm goaltender.

  15. observer says:

    Stamkos has disappeared! End of story!

  16. SeriousFan09 says:

    Holtby was a goaltender TBL didn’t know, in that situation it makes sense to send out the most creative players you have to shoot IMO.

  17. Nine1one says:

    The low liners for tampa have been doing a good job all year. Moore in particular has a couple game winning ones. 

  18. avatar_58 says:

    Pardon moi, any fellow NHL11 players around? It seems the latest roster has destroyed Hamrlik. I can’t find him on the NHL or AHL roster. Oops?

  19. observer says:

    Goal that was disallowed gave the refs another win tonight! Wonder if they bet or if just Bettman bet on Washington tonight?

  20. Jbird says:

    The man is a genius. 

  21. pmaraw says:

    1 game over .500  wow.

  22. HabFanSince72 says:

    Hockey, at all levels, is run by assholes. This sort of thing will keep on happening.

     

     

     

  23. SeriousFan09 says:

    VAN Giants released to local radio in VAN that Gallagher is out indefinitely with a concussion (see brain injury) and may miss a couple weeks, or the season.

    Frankly I’d rather he was shut down for the season if that is the case for safety, the WHL regular season is nearly over and it’s dangerous to bring him back in for the playoffs (and VAN isn’t a strong team, they need Gallagher to be their MVP to win, which makes him a target). A real pity, he was going to crack 100 points this season.

     

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

  24. SmartDog says:

    No more detail on Gallagher?  Man that pisses me off… I like this kid I hope he’s the same when he comes back.  Scary stuff.

  25. Duracell3 says:

    I feel bad for all their goalies equally.

  26. Former Jets Fan says:

    What’s the deal with Louis Leblanc and his 88 PIM?  Seems like a high number – more than triple Bournival’s total. 

  27. Bill says:

    I’m having difficulty thinking of a Leafs goalie who didn’t start out as a saviour. Gustavsson will not have a career, but it will not be because of his health. It will be because he’s just another footnote in the history of over-hyped Leafs’ goaltending prospects.

    How’s Justin Pogge these days? Maybe he can make a comeback when Reimer comes back to earth.

    Full Breezer 4 Life

  28. habs001 says:

    with 16 games left it will not be easy to catch any team 5 points ahead…if those teams only win 8 more games we would need to win 11 games and the odds are they will probably win one or two more than 8…

  29. SeriousFan09 says:

    Been a bit hot under the collar since the WJC, he’s more than doubled his PIMs since December. Suspect he took it badly.

     

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

  30. habitual says:

    You are a serious fan.  Good work!

  31. thebigguy says:

    EA sent him down to the minors and gave him a salary cut. $500,000.

     

    I was hesitant to get a post trade deadline roster. Some teams are unusable and others are way too good.

Habs Future

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) checks in with this week’s look at Canadiens prospects.

1. Brendan Gallagher continues to drive home the point that not only is he the MVP of Vancouver Giants but that he is one of the most terrifying offensive players in the Western Hockey League. Gallagher had his most dominant week in his career to date with a 10-point performance over a three games in three night’s schedule. Gallagher would score a goal and two assists in a 5-3 loss on Friday night, but he didn’t let that discourage him for a second. On Saturday night, Gallagher keyed a 5-1 victory on Saturday night by assisting on the eventual game-winning goal and adding the 3rd and 4th goals for insurance. To prove he wasn’t tired, Gallagher scored the initial and game-winning goal in a 5-0 victory on Sunday, than scored another goal and added two assists for good measure. Gallagher’s weekend also shattered his single-season offensive records, surpassing his old season-best marks of 41 goals and 40 assists that he reached in 72 games last season. Gallagher has now scored 43 goals and 44 assists in 61 games. Gallagher’s scoring pace has raised him to 4th overall in WHL scoring, 2nd overall in goals and since the calendar flipped to 2011, Gallagher has scored eighteen goals and twenty two assists in twenty three games. Brendan Gallagher was drafted in the 5th round, 147th overall in the 2010 Entry Draft.

2. C Louis Leblanc is working harder and harder to
prove that his scoring slump is firmly behind him, enjoying an 8-point
week with the Montreal Juniors. Leblanc would score the opening goal in a
wild 7-5 win on Wednesday night and then would add two assists which
included setting up the game-winning goal. Leblanc would score a goal in
an eventual 3-2 loss on Friday night, but that just seemed to be
incentive for him to make sure his team didn’t lose on Sunday on
national television. Leblanc transformed into an absolute power play
menace on Sunday night in front of a national TV audience, he scored his
first hat trick of the season and added one assist all on the power
play, which kept his team in the game as they grinded out a 6-5 win in
the shootout. Leblanc’s scoring spree of late has made him the leading
points per game player on his team at a rate of 1.2 and is two points
out from leading the team in scoring and the player ahead of him has
played nine more games. Louis Leblanc was drafted in the 1st round, 18th overall in the 2009 Entry Draft. 

3. RW Aaron Palushaj scored three goals this
week to merit attention as he hunts for offensive consistency in a year
where he’s battled ankle injury. Palushaj opened his scoring with two
goals on Friday night, an insurance marker and than an empty-net goal in
a 4-1 victory for the Hamilton Bulldogs when they played for the
Montreal crowd in a special Bell Centre game on Friday night to a crowd
just short of fifteen thousand. Palushaj would score his 3rd
goal of the week as he attempted to force a comeback from a 4-1 deficit
on Sunday afternoon, but that would be the end of the Bulldogs scoring
as the game ended in a 5-2 loss. Palushaj’s 36 points this season has
him 2nd in team scoring amongst active players in Hamilton.
Aaron Palushaj was acquired in the trade that sent Matt D’Agostini to
St. Louis and was drafted in the 2nd round, 44th overall in the 2007 Entry Draft.

Worthy Mentions: D Mac Bennett scored his 2nd goal of the season with the University of Michigan Wolverines. D Morgan Ellis scored his 8th goal of the season, doubling his goals production from last season. Bubble prospect RW Mark MacMillan has scored six assists in his first two playoff games in the BCHL Junior A league.  D Brendon Nash scored a goal and assist to raise him to 25 points in his rookie AHL season. D Jarred Tinordi has reached 10 assists in the OHL this season. 

Question Marks: RW Alexander Avtsin has only one goal in his last 22 games.  D Brett Festerling is off with an upper-body injury. RW Danny Kristo is recovering from frostbite on his right foot.

    Nice update. 

    Another wee’un comin down the pipes, and damn does this one look good too. It’s good to see Leblanc having success, was really hoping he’d come alive playing more hockey than he was in Harvard.

  2. samTHEman says:

    I wonder if Leblanc will make the jump to Hamilton next year

  3. LA Loyalist says:

    Really interesting! Excellent work. Hope someone notices and starts paying you for it.

  4. habsfanmandy says:

    Gallagher is really impressive, what an offensive dynamo.

  5. SeriousFan09 says:

    Would be surprised if he didn’t, he’s eligible and he’ll have this summer to do what he really needs to get ahead, put on some weight so he can handle the pro game.

    Are Mac Bennett and Greg Pateryn on the same D pairing in Michigan?

    Yes they are.

    Wanova is bringing assist for Microsoft’s Windows seven running system and other new benefits to its Mirage desktop virtualization software package.

    With the VMworld demonstrate in San Francisco Aug. 31,windows 7 home premium 32 bit, Wanova officials introduced the corporation has started shipping Mirage 1.five, which now supports endpoints which can be managing Windows 7 too being a wizard for alot more comfortably migrating PCs from Windows XP to Windows 7 through the WAN.

    The migration capacity allows IT administrators to centrally handle the migration of methods to Windows 7, even the desktops of remote staff, while not the demand for external picture servers or boot media.

    The new help arrives at a time when enterprises are beginning to transfer their Personal computer environments from previously versions of Windows to Windows seven, which was launched in fall 2009.

    “It’s not a simple item,” Michele Borovac,microsoft office Professional Plus 32bit, vice president of marketing and advertising at Wanova, stated of Microsoft’s operating strategy. “Windows seven is often a huge, large procedure.”

    Wanova, which came from stealth mode a year back, is wanting to differentiate by itself in a highly aggressive desktop virtualization marketplace by rendering it simpler to include cellular and remote workers in to the virtualized desktop natural environment. Wanova’s DDV (Distributed Desktop Virtualization) offering aims to balance IT must have using the desires of finish end users, in accordance to organisation officials.

In addition, it manages and outlets the desktop image.

    Additionally, Mirage 1.5 minimizes the storage potential and throughput necessities, which will help organisations conserve revenue.

    Borovac reported in an interview with eWEEK that the vendor is acquiring curiosity in its technological know-how primarily from midsize and greater enterprises, which tend to get many PCs, a lot of which can be laptops, along with a large,microsoft office Enterprise 2007, distributed organization.

    “The [primary] requirement is, do you’ve got a good deal of laptop computer consumers?” she explained. “If the solution is sure, then we know we’ve got a potential consumer there.”

Habs Future

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) takes his weekly look at players in the Canadiens system.

THREE STARS

1. C Michaël Bournival had an impressive week to become the first star, scoring five goals for the team he captains, the Shawinigan Cataractes. Bournival’s offensive contributions were mostly complementary during the week, adding the 5th goal of a 5-2 win on Wednesday night and the 2nd goal in a 7-3 loss on Saturday night, but soundly delivered a win on Friday night when he registered a hat trick. Bournival recorded the 1st, 3rd and 5th goals of the game to bring about a 5-3 victory. Bournival’s five goals raised him to 28 on his season, four better than his best career mark and a career-best 64 points. Bournival is 16th overall in league scoring in the QMJHL. Bournival was drafted in the 3rd round, 71st overall in the 2010 Entry Draft by Colorado, who traded him to the Canadiens for Ryan O’Byrne.

2. C Louis Leblanc snapped his scoring slump in impressive fashion this week with the Montreal Juniors, scoring three goals and adding three assists, with points in all three of his games to help his team towards a perfect week. Leblanc scored the initial goal of a 3-goal comeback with his team in a 4-3 victory on Thursday night, added a goal and assist on Friday night in a 5-2 win, then had a goal and two assists in a 7-1 win on Saturday as his team completed an intense three game in three night schedule. Leblanc’s scoring outburst has him back as the leader in points per game at 1.1. Leblanc was drafted in the 1st round, 18th overall in the 2009 Entry Draft.

3. D Greg Pateryn recorded his finest single-game points performance of his NCAA career, scoring a goal and three assists on Friday night. Pateryn assisted on the first two goals of the game, scored the 3rd and then assisted on the 4th and eventual game-winning goal in what became a 6-3 victory for the University of Michigan Wolverines, where Pateryn is playing in his third year with the team.

  1. Da Hema says:

    If you go back even to the 1970s, the Habs have not been very successful with their first-round picks. The organisation’s strength, until the early 1990s, was its ability to turn raw specimens like a Craig Ludwig or a Mike McPhee or a Rod Langway or a Patrick Roy into solid, if not great, NHL players. That is what this organisation can no longer do. This organisation needs people like Jacques Laperierre and Claude Ruel who devoted their professional (and even personal) lives to develop players. Alas we have no one now who can turn groundchuck into steak.

  2. bostonantifan says:

    In case you haven’t been paying attention since 1980, most of the Canadiens 1st round picks, late or otherwise have been whiffs since they picked Wickenheiser over Savard.

  3. fbkj says:

    DID WE WIN THE CUP?

    wait dont spoil it, still catching up on the pvr…

  4. fbkj says:

    and worst of all

    they ALL require special skates

  5. observer says:

    last night? they lost 6 of their last 7.

  6. observer says:

    he is now wizniewski a 2011 UFA 5 years later – The #1 pick fischer was years ago became a supp 2nd round in 2011 which was traded for UFA wiz. this kind of drafting and trading is why habs are constantly spinning their wheels.

  7. The Cat says:

    I meant he does wheel and deal and tries to fix holes irregardless of Crosby and Malkin.

    [Disclaimer]: I’m a hockey fan. I care about the habs, but probably not as much as you.

  8. andrewberkshire says:

    Not to mention Letang, Gonchar and Fleury were already there. Most of Pittsburgh’s two trips to the finals had nothing to do with Shero. Add to that drafting Jordan Staal over Toews, Backstrom or even Kessel, and he’s not that amazing of a GM. He made a great trade today though, no doubt about it.

  9. Duracell3 says:

    By my not very scientific count, about 16, +/- 2.

  10. TomNickle says:

    It’s hard for him not to put together an entertaining product.  He went to the Pens in ’06 after they’d already drafted Crosby and Malkin.

     

  11. CanadienBoy says:

    A other’s overpaid underachiever like Komisary

  12. TomNickle says:

    Weren’t we supposed to have Dustin Brown or Wayne Simmonds by this time today?

    Oh, and Stephen Weiss, and Chris Phillips, and Chris Neil, and Dustin Penner, and Ales Hemsky, and Robyn Regehr, and Kevin Bieksa, and Devin Setoguchi, and Ed Jovanovski, and Eric Brewer, and Shane O’Brien, and J.P. Dumont, and Zach Bogosian, and Ian White.

    Hey, I’ve got an idea.  I’m gonna start a website, I’m gonna speculate that every player in a contract year is going to be traded to every team outside of their division in the NHL.  And when a player gets traded, I will have predicted it and therefore must have sources within every NHL organization.  Yeah, that could work.

  13. punkster says:

    YOU HAVE TO TALK IN CAPS LOCK TO BE UNDERSTOOD.

     

    ***Subbang!!!***

  14. CanadienBoy says:

    True, but injured players can not be traded ,when all said and done better let the kids get experience in the playoff event if only 4 games and hope to get ours D back next year ,find a way to exorcise Gomez and yes sing Ricards

  15. Nine1one says:

    i’d take young selanne over crosby. Then again my favorite player is Selanne so maybe i’m biased

  16. newbrunswick troy says:

    oh no offence taken…i just like getting everybody all riled up!!!!

  17. BJT says:

    Give it to me straight: what is gomez worth?

    First round draft pick?

    second round draft pick?

    Third Round draft pick?

    Third line winger?

    borderline prospect?

    Discuss.

     

    Formerly known as Camel_Larry.. ‘Sub-BAM! What a hit!’ ..”No more Looser on this teams!!” – Canadienboy

  18. ed lopaz says:

    that would be a good shut down line.

     

  19. Chuck says:

    Details, details…

  20. Chuck says:

    Imagine that… a rumour turning out to be untrue!

  21. andrewberkshire says:

    Now if only Tony had a memory, or some sort of organ that evolved over the last 3 billion years in order to process information, then he’d know too.

  22. TomNickle says:

    I think it’s everything.  Lack of speed, finishing ability, passing ability, hands.  They obviously want scoring depth having brought up Desharnais.  But with Desharnais, Eller, Gomez, Plekanec or Halpern towing a line, how do they expect Moen to fit?

    The only centreman he fits with is Halpern, they should put together Halpern, Moen and Darche and use them as a shutdown line.

  23. SeriousFan09 says:

    You run into problems when your starting goalie is Patrick Lalime.

     

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

  24. Chuck says:

    Hell, he ruined Subban, too.

  25. ed lopaz says:

    you can see by the way Moen is playing that he believes he’s out of here.

    he has not fit in all season.

    too slow for this team – and no finish.

    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.

  26. gohabsgo25 says:

    what happen to proposed gomez deal, saying he will be gone by monday. complete bs

  27. observer says:

    concussion and a free agent thats why a smart gm will get him cheap! “smart” which rules out the concussed bozo gainey and his advisee gauthier.

  28. TomNickle says:

    Maybe prophecy #2 will come true and Moen will be moved to another team altogether.  I like the guy, but he doesn’t fit here at all.  Needs to be with a big team that moves north and south, not east and west.

     

  29. ed lopaz says:

    Hey Tom,

    Gomez back with Gionta

    Plekanec back with Cammy.

    Guess jacques and I are more alike that I would care to admit!!

    “fruuck me! – did Subbie just take another penalty?” ( I’ve been practicing my lip reading of JM )

    From the RDS websit.


    Au lendemain de la défaite de son équipe à la Classique Héritage, l’entraîneur Jacques Martin a effectué quelques modifications à ses trios lors de l’entraînement lundi.

    Ainsi, Scott Gomez était entouré de Max Pacioretty et Brian Gionta sur le premier trio tandis que Jeff Halpern a obtenu une promotion en évoluant à l’aile sur la deuxième unité avec Michael Cammalleri et Tomas Plekanec.

  30. andrewberkshire says:

    Jacques Martin has an Olympic gold medal. How many coaches have those?

  31. avatar_58 says:

    Honestly I’d discuss the “game” last night but what’s the point? Big disappointment and it’s only going to get worse.

Habs Future

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) checks in with his weekly look at Canadiens’ prospects.

THREE STARS

1. C Mark MacMillan receives special recognition this week from the bubble prospect group. MacMillan had recently returned to the lineup of his Penticton Vees team in the BCHL, a Junior A league. On Friday night, MacMillan scored the tying goal and added an assist in his team’s 4-1 victory and first game back and than raised his game quickly for the rest of the weekend. MacMillan added another assist on Saturday night on what would be the game-winning goal in an 8-4 victory and than completed his weekend by assisting on two goals and then scoring the overtime winner to allow his team to have a perfect weekend. MacMillan despite battling both a broken wrist and concussion this season is on a 1.43PPG pace on his season, he is committed to join the North Dakota NCAA hockey team in the 2011-12 season.

2. RW Brendan Gallagher in his only game of the week brought his team victory while playing in the national spotlight this weekend as his team was selected to play in Whitehorse during the annual Hockey Day in Canada. Gallagher’s hold as MVP of the Vancouver Giants was once again maintained as he scored two goals, including the game-winner to bring his team a 3-2 victory while maintaining hold as the 6th overall scorer in the WHL and remaining tied for 2nd overall in goals with 38 on his season.

3. D Morgan Ellis gets a nod this week for being the first amongst the Canadiens junior-league prospects to best a previous-season mark. Ellis had 28 points last season, which he exceeded this week by scoring two assists for his Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in their only victory of the week. Ellis currently has 7 goals and 23 assists on his season and is three assists away from besting his single-season best in assists. Ellis leads all other defencemen on his team by at least a two to one margin in points and is the 4th on his team in points.

WORTHY MENTIONS: D Mathieu Carle leads all HAM defencemen in goals with his 9th of the season, which is also a career best. LW Andrew Conboy had a goal and one assist in his first three games back from injury and also scored his 9th goal of the season, also a career high for the forward. RW Aaron Palushaj exceeded his AHL season-best 8G in 62GP last season by also scoring his 9th goal in 43 games this season.

QUESTION MARKS: RW Alexander Avtsin has missed 3 games with a lower-body injury. RW Danny Kristo is still recovering from frostbite to his right foot. C Louis Leblanc has no points in his last 8 games. LW Phillippe Lefebvre has only 2 goals in his last 16 games. C Ben Maxwell has only 3 goals in his last 17 games. D Jarred Tinordi still does not have a goal in the OHL this season after 49 games. RW Maxim Trunev has one point in his last 20 games.

Our friend Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) checks in with his weekly look at Canadiens’ prospects.

THREE STARS

1. RW Brendan Gallagher maintains his place at the top of the weekly honours list with another week of MVP contributions to his Vancouver Giants team. After going without a point in the first game of a back to back series where his team won 3-2, Gallagher powered his team to victory in the second game with a four-point performance. Gallagher scored one goal and assisted on the 3 other regulation-time goals by his team in a 5-4 shootout win where he ended his night by scoring the winning goal in the shootout. Gallagher’s services would soon come into demand again on Friday night against the Calgary Hitmen, scoring his team’s first goal to tie the game at 1, than scoring the critical tying goal with less than four minutes remaining in the game to force overtime, than an eventual shootout win by his team. Gallagher was held pointless in an eventual 5-2 loss, but Gallagher’s scoring prowess over the week helped get his team four essential points to hold their place as 1st in their division. Gallagher continues his stand at 6th overall in WHL scoring with 36 goals, 36 assists and is tied for 2nd overall in goals. Gallagher’s career-best mark of 41 goals, 40 assists in a season is easily within reach with seventeen games left on his schedule. 

2. D Alexei Yemelin had his best scoring performance in
his KHL career over two games, scoring three goals and adding one assist
to leap to 11th overall in defensive scoring in the KHL. Yemelin began
his week by scoring the first goal in what became an unchallenged
five-goal comeback from a 0-2 deficit by his Ak Bars Kazan team and
finished the game off by scoring the fifth goal of the game as well, it
was Yemelin’s first two-goal game of his KHL career. Yemelin would
participate in an even more surprising comeback by his team later in the
week, assisting on the 3rd goal of a 6-goal comeback after falling
behind 4-0, than buried the insurance marker to make the game 6-4.
Yemelin’s eleven goals this season amount to more than he had scored in
all of his previous professional seasons in Russia combined. His
fourteen assists on his season are more than he’s had combined in his
three previous seasons.

3. G Karri Ramo is having a
season a goalie in any league dreams of having. Ramo enjoyed another
perfect week, collecting two wins by recording identical 22-save
performances with a 2.00 Goals Against Average and .917 save percentage.
Ramo continues to dominate the wins column in the KHL, with a record of
31-6-4 on his season, he is 2nd overall in the KHL with a GAA of 2.01,
6th in save percentage at .924 and has seven more wins than his closest
competitor. However his week was marred by suffering an as-yet
undisclosed injury that had him placed on Injured Reserve by his
Avangard Omsk team. Omsk’s position as 1st in the KHL owes much to
Ramo’s play, he’s been in goal for 80% of their wins this season. Ramo
also has 10 more wins and sixteen fewer regulation losses compared to
his previous season in the KHL in two fewer games played.

———-

WORTHY MENTIONS: C Michaël Bournival added two goals and an assist to his scoring totals on the week. D Jarred Tinordi after a slow start to his season has 4 assists in his last 5 games. C Ryan White snapped a 15-game goal drought with his first game-winning goal of the season. Bubble prospect G Peter Delmas remains undefeated since being placed with the ECHL Wheeling Nailers with an 8-0-0 record with impressive stats such as a 1.88GAA and .941 save %.

QUESTION MARKS: C Louis Leblanc’s scoring slump has extended to five games. LW Andrew Conboy remains on IR with a knee injury. D Brendon Nash aside from his 4-point performance on Jan. 21st has not scored in 9 of his last 10 games. C Ben Maxwell and RW Aaron Palushaj despite being looked to carry offence in Hamilton each has just two points each in their last 5 games. RW Maxim Trunev has 1 point in his last 19 KHL games. RW Danny Kristo is currently recovering from frostbite on his right foot, but is said to be in fair condition with use of all of his extremities. G Robert Mayer has only had two starts since the New Year.

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) offers his weekly look at Canadiens’ prospects.

THREE STARS

1. RW Brendan Gallagher continues to be an offensive dynamo for the Vancouver Giants, scoring a goal and three assists over a pair of games. Gallagher opened his week by scoring a goal and then assisting on the game-winning goal in his team’s game on Friday in a 3-1 win. Gallagher’s team would see a lopsided defeat on Saturday, but Gallagher did his best to try and stage a comeback, assisting on two goals to make a 5-3 game in the 3rd period before his team finally fell behind 7-3, however Gallagher still managed to emerge +1 in the loss. Gallagher now has 33 goals and 33 assists in 50 games, stands 6th overall in WHL scoring and has 21 games left on his season to overtake his previous season-best of 41 goals, 40 assists.

2. RW Danny Kristo continues to make up for lost ground in the first half of his season by managing another spirited weekend of offensive flair. After a tough loss that saw his North Dakota NCAA team fall behind 4-0 to start the match on Friday night and an eventual 4-2 loss, Kristo channeled his talents to assist on three goals in a revenge game on Saturday night that resulted in a 6-0 victory, including helping teammate and Captain Joe Gleason score his first NCAA goal. In a taste of mathematical symmetry, this was Kristo’s third three-point game of the season, all occurring in the last nine games that Kristo has played. Kristo is four assists away from tying his rookie-best mark of 21 assists in a season.

3. D Alexei Yemelin has begun to add some offensive impact to his season again, after 16 games without a goal, Yemelin scored his 8th of the season during the week and added one assist to raise his total scoring to 21 points, more than double what it was in his previous two KHL seasons. Yemelin has scored six power play goals this season, tying him for 4th-best for power play goals amongst KHL defencemen, he is 19th overall in scoring by a defencemen in the KHL.

WORTHY MENTIONS: RW Alexander Avtsin added two more assists to his scoring totals, he is now 3rd in scoring among 19-year AHL rookies and both players ahead of him have played on North American ice their entire careers. D Morgan Ellis added three assists to his scoring totals, he is 4 assists away from matching his career-best of 25A in a season. G Karri Ramo won his only start and has now won fifteen of his last sixteen starts, he continues to lead the KHL in wins with 30, is 5th overall in save percentage at .925 and his 2.01 Goals Against Average is good enough for 3rd overall. Bubble prospect G Peter Delmas has raised his stock since making his way onto the Wheeling Nailers ECHL team, he has won all six of his starts, with a notable 1.67 GAA and .948 save %.

QUESTION MARKS: C Louis Leblanc and LW Phillippe Lefebvre each went without a point in 4 games with the Montreal Juniors on their week. D Mathieu Carle is not having an overly strong 4th AHL season, with only 16 points in 39 games. C Ben Maxwell and RW Aaron Palushaj go from scoring aces the previous week to barely adding offence, adding one assist and one goal to their respective totals. LW Andrew Conboy remains sidelined with a knee injury.

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) checks in with his weekly look at Canadiens’ prospects.

Three Stars

1.  C Michaël Bournival rises to the top of the field for the week by scoring two goals and adding four assists to his scoring totals, which has raised him to 17th overall in league scoring in the QMJHL. Bournival’s scoring contributions were quite fortuitous for the team he captains, the Shawinigan Cataractes as his scoring directly led to all three victories enjoyed by his team. On Tuesday, Bournival scored the game-winning goal in what became a 4-0 victory by the Cataractes, on Friday, Bournival would score the first goal of the game for his team and assist on the next two goals resulting in a 3-2 victory, Saturday Bournival once again helped ensure victory by scoring the opening goal of the match and assisting on the game-winning goal in a 6-4 victory. Bournival is also one of the best faceoff specialists in the QMJHL, checking in at an efficiency of 56%. 

2. C Ben Maxwell emerged from his scoring slump to add three goals and three assists to his scoring totals during three games and begin his first points streak in 2011. With the Bulldogs bereft of the scoring talents of David Desharnais, they had been looking for a new centre to carry offence and Maxwell stepped up to carry the load. Maxwell had one assist in his first game of the week on Tuesday, a 7-0 victory, added two goals and an assist in his team’s 7-3 win on Friday, than added a goal and assist to help force overtime and an eventual shootout win on Saturday. Maxwell’s output of late his him back on track to exceed his season-best mark of 36 assists in a season.

3. RW Brendan Gallagher continues to build on his excellent offensive season in the WHL, scoring four goals and one assist while playing in three games in three nights on the road. Gallagher had a relatively light weekend to start, with an assist on the game-winning goal in a 3-0 victory on Friday, adding one goal in a 6-1 victory on Saturday, than scored his second hat trick of the season on Sunday in a 7-3 victory. Gallagher maintains his position at 5th overall in scoring in the WHL and is now tied for 2nd overall in goals. Gallagher is currently paced to best his old single-season best of 41 goals and 40 assists in a season.

Worthy Mentions: Bubble prospect LW John Westin returned from injury after missing 4 months due to a broken arm and scored a goal in his first game back in the Swedish under-20 Junior league. RW Alexander Avtsin added four assists to his scoring totals and has six assists in his seven games since returning from injury. C Gabriel Dumont snapped an 8-game scoreless streak with an assist in each of his last two games. G Robert Mayer took a rare start and earned a victory by stoning the opposing team in the shootout to hold out for an eventual 4-3 win. D Brendon Nash likely expressed a sigh of relief when he scored a 3rd goal on his season for the first time in five years, he also added three assists to his totals to continue building on his status as the leading scorer amongst defencemen in Hamilton. RW Aaron Palushaj has begun to break out of his slump with two goals, two assists in his last 3 game. C Louis Leblanc scored a goal and two assists in two games, including the game-winning goal in his second game of the week. LW Phillippe Lefebvre returned from being sidelined with a concussion and scored a goal and assist in his first two games back.  G Karri Ramo won both his starts on the week and has not lost in regulation in his last fifteen starts, he continues to lead the KHL in wins with 29.

Question Marks: LW Andrew Conboy has a knee injury that has him sidelined until likely early to mid-February. Bubble prospect RW Ian Schultz is out at least 6 weeks with a fractured foot. D Morgan Ellis is a team-worst -25 on the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.

The AHL Report: The Hamilton Bulldogs have been the AHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens since 2002. It is the most common route for developing Montreal Canadiens prospects into full-time members of the organization. There are currently 14 members of the Hamilton Bulldogs that can be considered NHL-viable prospects, four of whom – David Desharnais, Max Pacioretty, Yannick Weber and Ryan White – have been called up to Montreal. The Hamilton Bulldogs have a record of 26-13-1-4, are 1st in the North Division, 2nd overall in the Western Conference and 5th overall in the AHL.

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) checks in with his weekly look at Canadiens prospects.

THREE STARS

1. RW Brendan Gallagher makes an appearance at the top of the honours list by rediscovering his offensive prowess, stepping up to provide key offence for his Vancouver Giants squad as the team’s new offensive leader. Gallagher’s play led to an industrious week of two goals and five assists, scoring the opening goal in his first game, an eventual 5-3 win, assisting on all three goals in a 3-2 win by his team, he went scoreless in his third a 3-0 loss than finished his week off by scoring a goal and two assists, including an assist on the game-winning goal. Gallagher is currently 5th overall in the WHL in scoring with 28G, 29A on his season and is first in scoring on his team, leading his teammates by an impressive 22 points.

2. G Karri Ramo continues to be arguably, the top goaltender in the KHL this season and possibly outside the NHL with an impeccable season record of 27-6-3 following another perfect week in nets. Ramo added three wins to his record, allowing only two goals in each game he played during his week with a .923 save percentage. Thanks to Ramo’s prowess in nets, his team Avangard Omsk is first overall in the KHL and Ramo has only lost one game in his last twelve starts. Ramo’s stats continue to be dominant in all fields, he is 2nd overall in the league in Goals Against Average at 1.94, 4th overall in save percentage at .928, 2nd overall in shutouts with 5 and is first overall in wins with 27, six more than his closest competitor in the league.

3. C Louis Leblanc delivered some valuable offence for the Montreal Juniors during the week, he scored two goals and added three assists to his scoring totals, raising him to 5th in scoring on his team. Leblanc is only five points from tying for the team lead in points and both players holding the lead have played at least nine more games than he has. Leblanc scored a goal in his first match of the week, went scoreless in the next, but then soundly delivered a victory for his team by contributing on the first four goals of a 5-2 win with a goal and three assists, it was Leblanc’s third four-point game of the season. Leblanc is currently the most effective scorer for the Juniors, scoring at a rate of 1.28 points per game.

Worthy Mentions: RW Alexander Avtsin began his week by assisting on the game-winning goal in his first game, than would score the shootout winning goal in his next game, he leads all Bulldogs with three shootout goals on his season. C Andreas Engqvist returned from injury to score a goal and assist in his first game back, including assisting on the eventual game-winning goal. RW Danny Kristo extended his current points streak to 8 games while adding a goal and assist to his scoring totals, he has 3G and 10A on his current streak. D Greg Pateryn had two assists over consecutive games for the 3rd time this season. C Dustin Walsh has matched his points output from last season with 7G, 3A in 5 fewer GP. C Michaël Bournival had a goal and assist to ensure his team made it to overtime and eventual shootout victory on Sunday and remains first in scoring on his team with 19G, 27A.

Question Marks: LW Phillippe Lefebvre has been sidelined by a concussion and is out indefinitely. LW Andrew Conboy is currently out with a lower-body injury for Hamilton. C Gabriel Dumont has had no points in his last 7 games. C Ben Maxwell has only 6G in 32GP so far this season, compared to 22G in 73GP his rookie AHL season and 16G in 57GP last season. G Robert Mayer has not been trusted with a start since January 1st, his GAA is above 3 and his save percentage is at .888 on the season. RW Aaron Palushaj has only two assists in his last 10 games.  RW Maxim Trunev has no points in his last 11 KHL games.

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) checks in with his weekly look at Canadiens’ prospects.

Three Stars

1. C Louis Leblanc had one point in his final two World Junior Championship games, assisting on a goal in the Gold Medal Match, he finished the Tournament a +6, second-best amongst forwards and finished at a point per game track in the Tournament despite his line assignments never lasting more than two games, or sometimes even through one. Leblanc returned to play two games with the Montreal Juniors before his week was done, he notched two assists with the team as they came back from a 0-3 deficit that became a 6-4 win and then added his 14th goal of the season in a 5-3 loss the following day. Leblanc was notably one of the strongest players along the boards during the tournament, constantly in control of the puck or taking control of it, it often required him being double-teamed to take him off of it.

2. RW Danny Kristo has continued to take large steps of late to put the slump he was mired in for the first two months of his season aside. Kristo scored a goal and three assists over the weekend, his empty-net goal eventually became the game-winner as his North Dakota team was scored on after he notched what was believed to be an insurance marker. Kristo’s three assists came in a dominant 8-0 victory the previous evening. Kristo is now enjoying a 6-game point streak of two goals and nine assists, his early season struggles may finally be behind him.

3. G Karri Ramo continues to be one of the most consistent and resilient netminders in the KHL this season, he added two more wins to his record including a shutout, he has only lost one game in his last 10 starts and has only six regulation losses on his season. Ramo’s KHL team Avangard Omsk is now 2nd overall in their conference thanks to his impressive comeback run as a legitimate goaltender. Ramo now holds spots in the top 5 of all goaltending categories, he is 1st in wins with 24, posts the 2nd-best Goals Against Average record with 1.94, 4th overall in save percentage at .928 and has 5 shutouts on his season, only 1 behind the league lead.

Worthy Mentions: RW Alexander Avtsin has returned from injury and added an assist in his 2nd game back. D Mathieu Carle returned from injury to the Hamilton roster, scoring a goal and assist in his first three games back. LW Andrew Conboy has matched his previous season scoring totals in 35 fewer GP. D Brendon Nash added two assists to his scoring totals on the week, he is pacing for a .5PPG season in the AHL and leads all Hamilton defencemen in points. D Alexei Yemelin added two assists to his scoring in the KHL in the past week, his team is currently 1st overall in the KHL. D Mac Bennett scored his first NCAA goal over the weekend and had an assist in his game as well. C Michaël Bournival continues to the backbone of offence for the Shawinigan Cataractes, he scored two goals and one assist, including an overtime game-winner. C Joonas Nattinen scored no points in his final game in the World Juniors, but led his team with a 63.48% faceoff efficiency, good enough for 4th overall in the Tournament.

Question Marks: C Andreas Engqvist has been sidelined with an upper body injury that has prevented him from playing in January. LW Phillippe Lefebvre has been sidelined with a possible concussion. RW Aaron Palushaj continues to struggle with consistency, with only 3 points in his last 10 games. C Gabriel Dumont has no points in 6 games and is a -6 in his last 6GP. G Robert Mayer’s questionable play in nets this season in Hamilton with a GAA above 3 and a save percentage below .900 has left the team no choice but to play Sanford almost every night.

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) checks in with his weekly look at Canadiens prospects.

Three Stars

1. C Louis Leblanc earns top honours on his week with an impressive performance in the Under-20 World Junior Hockey Championships for Team Canada, Leblanc scored three goals and added two assists over four games. Leblanc’s first goal came shorthanded against the Czech Republic, converting on a Brayden Schenn pass to swing the momentum firmly towards Canada in what became a lopsided 7-1 victory, Leblanc would add an assist later in the game. Leblanc scored another goal and assist in the 10-1 rout of Norway, was held pointless against Sweden but then secured a critical 3rd goal to give Canada breathing room against Switzerland in the Quarter-Final Elimination Game. Leblanc is tied for 2nd overall in the WJC Tournament with a +7 and has only been on the ice for one goal against in 5 games. It should be noted that Leblanc has not played on the same line for more than 2 games in a row, yet is 4th in team scoring despite his shifting assignments.

2. C David Desharnais briefly became the sole points and assists leader of the AHL before being called up to Montreal, adding four more assists to his scoring totals on the week, including three assists in what was Hamilton’s sole victory on their week against the Lake Erie Monsters, assisting on all three goals scored, his other assist came in an eventual 5-3 loss to the Chicago Wolves. Before his being called to Montreal, he was pacing to have an 80-assist season, which would shatter the current record in Hamilton of 52 assists for single-season performance.

3. C Joonas Nattinen earns attention this week with two goals, which were both the opening goal for in two consecutive victories for Team Finland over Switzerland and Germany in the Under-20 World Junior Hockey Championships. Nattinen brought strong experience from playing in two previous World Junior tournaments and a measure of physical play over his four games, dealing out many hits and was a stalwart in the faceoff circle for Finland, easily being the best man on the team winning 61% of his draws. The Finnish team sorely missed Nattinen after an accidental collision at center ice with a Russian player had Nattinen go to the locker room for treatment. The Russian team would then score two goals to tie the game, than win in overtime as the Finnish team lost their faceoff specialist and one of their best centers while trying to defend their 3-1 lead.

Worthy Mentions: D Brendon Nash added three assists to become the overall scoring leader among defencemen in Hamilton. C Ben Maxwell had 2G and 7A since returning from injury in a 7-game point streak that finally ended on Saturday. D Jarred Tinordi has become a bit more aggressive in the OHL lately, he had fights in 2 consecutive games. RW Danny Kristo had his best game of the year, with a goal and 2 assists for his North Dakota NCAA team in a 5-0 win. G Karri Ramo had another win to continue to lead all KHL goaltenders in wins with 22 on his season.

Question Marks: RW Alexander Avtsin has now been scratched in five consecutive games with Hamilton. G Robert Mayer continues to struggle in nets in Hamilton with a GAA over 3 and more losses than wins on his season. RW Aaron Palushaj was scratched for three games and has failed to score in any of his last 4 games. RW Brendan Gallagher has not scored a goal in his last 8 games, his longest goals drought of the season. D Mathieu Carle remains on injured reserve in Hamilton. The Montreal organization as a whole, has no strong LW prospects developing outside the main team.

Habs Future

Yes, there is a future.

Robert Rice, aka Seriousfan09, checks in with his weekly comprehensive look at prospects.

Man, don’t let the Antichambre gang see who’s First Star.

Three Stars

1. C David Desharnais claims top honours on the week amongst prospects, with an impressive two goals and three assists in his two games. Desharnais was the primary catalyst of a 5-0 victory for the Hamilton Bulldogs over the Houston Aeros on Tuesday, scoring two goals and adding two assists to his scoring totals, including assisting on the game-winning first goal of the game. Desharnais would then add an assist in an eventual loss to the Toronto Marlies on Sunday to raise his scoring totals to be first overall in the AHL in both points and assists, with 10 goals and 31 assists on his season after 33 games played and is a team-leading +13.

2. G Karri Ramo has continued his dominance in the KHL with two wins and a shootout loss on his week, which included a shutout victory and maintaining a save percentage of .929 and a 2.33 Goals Against Average on his week. Ramo is still the league leader in wins in the KHL with 21 wins in 31 games, is 3rd overall in the KHL in goals against and 6th overall in save percentage, he has the 2nd-most shutouts in the KHL with 4 on his season as well.

3. C Joonas Nattinen had a strong start to his 3rd World Junior Tournament by scoring the first goal for Finland in the USA-Finland match and delivering several powerful hits, including one that sent US player Brock Nelson to the dressing room and has his health questionable for the remainder of the tournament. It was his first goal in a World Junior Tournament since the 2009 series.

Worthy Mentions: LW Andrew Conboy is one point from tying his career-best 13 points in a season in the AHL after adding two assists to his scoring totals. C Gabriel Dumont has points in three consecutive games after some very long scoring droughts during his season. D Brendon Nash leads all Bulldogs defencemen with a +12 rating. C Louis Leblanc had an assist and was +1 in his first World Junior Championship game in a 6-3 win over Russia.


Question Marks: RW Alexander Avtsin and RW Aaron Palushaj were healthy scratches for both of the Hamilton Bulldogs games during the week. RW Maxim Trunev is without a point in his last 7 KHL games.

Selected to play in the IIHF Under-20 World Junior Hockey Championships:

C Louis Leblanc – Team Canada

Habs Future

Robert Rice, aka SeriousFan09, checks in with his weekly look at Canadiens’ prospects.

A new name at the top of the Three Stars.

1. C Ben Maxwell takes top honours as he returns to the lineup for the Hamilton Bulldogs and delivers a jolt of offence, with a goal and three assists in three games. Maxwell, previously sidelined with an upper-body injury returned in time to face the Oklahoma City Barons and scored the first goal of the game in a 3-0 victory. Maxwell would then assist on the initial Bulldogs goal, than the game-winning goal in OT to complete a comeback from 2-0 on Saturday night against the Texas Stars, he would add an assist in a losing effort against San Antonio on Sunday night. Maxwell had not played since November 17th prior to his return and has helped deliver some much-needed offence to the Bulldogs lineup.

2. C David Desharnais has worked to ensure the pace of the Bulldogs continues after the departure of scoring star Max Pacioretty, he scored a goal and three assists on the week, including a goal and assist against Oklahoma City in a 3-0 Bulldogs win and assisting on the game-tying goal against the Texas Stars on Saturday night on the way to the 3-2 overtime win, he would add an assist against San Antonio. Desharnais leads the entire AHL in assists with 28 on his season and is second overall in points in the AHL.

3. C Michaël Bournival only played one game during the week due to his commitment, and unfortuate final dismissal from the 2010 World Junior Championship Evaluation Camp for Team Canada, Bournival was the final cut of the camp which speaks very well to his chances for next year’s team. There is still a chance he makes the team if there is a last-minute injury on the current Team Canada roster amongst forwards. Bournival would score two goals and one assist in his single game, a 5-4 loss for his Shawinigan Cataractes but was still selected 1st star of the game for his efforts on his return from camp.

Worthy Mentions: D Jarred Tinordi has begun to assert himself more in London, he has two assists in his last three games and has been given increasing responsibilities by the coach as the Knights look to turn their season around and was selected 3rd star of the last game he played. D Alexei Yemelin was selected to play in the Channel One Cup Tournament in the European Hockey Tour and had an assist over 3 games with an even +/- differential, Team Russia would win with three straight victories. C Louis Leblanc was selected to play for Team Canada in the Under-20 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships, he is expected to play on the right wing of the top line. RW Alexander Avtsin broke a 7-game scoreless slump to get his 4th goal of the season. LW Andrew Conboy has matched his single-season best in goals in the AHL with two goals on his week to take his total to 8, which he did in 25 games compared to 66 in his last season. C Gabriel Dumont had his first multi-point AHL game, with three assists added to his scoring totals, he had only two assists in 25 previous games.

Question Marks: D Mathieu Carle has suffered an upper-body injury and will be out for what is expected to be 4 weeks, he missed most of the 09-10 season with shoulder surgery and missed two consecutive Canadiens training camps with injuries in 07-08 and 08-09, he may be too fragile to make the NHL. G Robert Mayer had another troublesome start in nets, allowing five goals and his save percentage on his season is at .886%. RW Aaron Palushaj continues an annoying trend of scoring slumps, with only one assist in his last 4 games. G Karri Ramo was not selected to represent Finland at the Channel One Cup, despite leading all goaltenders in the KHL in wins.

Selected to play in the IIHF Under-20 World Junior Hockey Championships:
C Louis Leblanc – Team Canada
C Joonas Nattinen – Team Finland

Habs Future

Robert Rice (Seriousfan09) checks in with his weekly report on Canadiens’ prospects.

There’s a familiar name atop the Three Stars:

1. LW Max Pacioretty should be no stranger to anyone by now as he appears in the Three Stars selections for a fourth straight week Pacioretty scored three goals and one assist to make him the leading goal scorer in the AHL with seventeen goals and have him tied for second overall in the league in points. Pacioretty scored a goal in each of the three games he played during the week, including the overtime winner against the Rochester American in a Friday night match. With seventeen goals and fifteen assists in 27 games this season, Pacioretty has now passed his AHL-best scoring of six goals and twenty three assists in 37 games in his rookie AHL season. It appears his efforts were also enough to impress in-attendance head coach of the Montreal Canadiens Jacques Martin as mere hours after the game was over, Max Pacioretty was called up to the Canadiens.


2. G Karri Ramo earns top honours on the week for another flawless performance with three straight wins for his KHL club, Avangard Omsk. Ramo allowed only five goals over those three games and kept a 1.66 Goals Against Average with a sharp .928 save percentage. Ramo since October 16th has won 16 games and lost only three, his consistent work in nets has his team 5th overall in the KHL. His season stats stand at 1.93 GAA and a .926 save percentage. Ramo’s GAA is good enough for third overall in the KHL, sixth in save percentage and leads the entire KHL for wins by a goaltender.

3. LW Olivier Fortier makes an impressive assertion by becoming the first bubble prospect to make the Three Stars selections with a four-point game, tripling his scoring totals in the AHL this season. Fortier led the scoring drive for the Hamilton Bulldogs in a 5-1 win over the Toronto Marlies scoring the first, third and fifth goals of the game to complete his first professional hat trick and more than double his scoring on the season. Fortier would also assist on what would be deemed the game-winning goal of the game.  An under-the-radar forward in the organization, Fortier is a former Guy Carbonneau Trophy winner in the QMJHL for best defensive forward, but has battled a lot of injuries in his last two seasons.

Worthy Mentions: D Mathieu Carle has been very sharp in replacing Yannick Weber as the lead offensive defencemen of the Hamilton Bulldogs, he had a goal and three assists on his week. LW Andrew Conboy scored goals in consecutive games to come within two goals of his previous season’s best that he collected in 66 games last season. C David Desharnais continued his excellent playmaking and added four assists on his week to tie Pacioretty for the scoring lead on the Bulldogs, tie second overall in the AHL for scoring and secnd overall and be the second in assists in the league at 25. G Robert Mayer enjoyed a rare start and won in Hamilton’s Friday night match against Rochester with two goals against and a .935 save %. RW Aaron Palushaj is making himself a scoring threat with the Hamilton Bulldogs again, he had 2G, 2A on his week and improved to 20 points in 21 games. RW Brendan Gallagher had his 25th goal of the season in 31GP before departing for the Team Canada World Junior Championship Camp. D Mac Bennett found himself fortunate enough to participate in the “Big Chill” NCAA game played in front of a crowd of an incredible 113,411 people, Bennett played for the University of Michigan, who won the match 5-0.

Question Marks: RW Alexander Avtsin has no points in his last 7 games. RW Ian Schultz still has no points over 16 games and was scratched twice during the week, has been demoted off Habs Future for the time being. RW Danny Kristo still slumping with only one goal and eight points in 20 games on his season at North Dakota.  Ben Maxwell is out indefinitely with an upper body injury. C Ryan White’s knee injury will likely have him not return until the end of December, or possibly even later. C Louis Leblanc was without a point in two games as he recovers from an upper-body injury, just before departing for the Team Canada World Junior Championship Camp. C Joonas Nattinen and RW Maxim Trunev were each healthy scratches on a game this week.

Current selections to IIHF Under-20 World Junior Hockey Championship Camps:
C Louis Leblanc – Team Canada
C Michaël Bournival – Team Canada
RW Brendan Gallagher – Team Canada
C Joonas Nattinen – Team Finland

Habs Future

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) weighs in with this week’s look at Canadiens’ prospects.

There’s a deja vu quality to top of the weekly Three Star selection.

1. LW Max Pacioretty continues to be top prospect for the Montreal Canadiens outside the team this season, he is now the three-time 1st Star of Hab’s Future. Pacioretty added three more goals to his scoring to aid the Bulldogs during a bumpy week, his two goals against Abbotsford on Wednesday would force a shootout that led to an eventual win by the Bulldogs and their only win during the week. Pacioretty has scored an amazing ten of the last sixteen goals scored by the Hamilton Bulldogs and is third in scoring in the AHL. Pacioretty’s development of his shot and scoring is a great revelation for his NHL potential as his best season for goals previously was 21 in Junior A Hockey in 2006-2007 over 60 games. Pacioretty now has 14 on his season and is just 24 games into an 80-game AHL season.


2. RW Brendan Gallagher continues to be the leading goal scorer among all junior prospects in the Canadiens organization as he finished his week with two goals and one assist. Gallagher now has twenty four goals in twenty nine games this season, is 2nd overall in the WHL for goals scored and 5th overall in league scoring. The young winger with a complete season in the WHL is projecting to score an impressive 60 goals. 


3. C David Desharnais definitely not content to avoid being on the score sheet, he added three assists to his scoring totals, all as the steady center to Max Pacioretty to keep pace with the Bulldog’s MVP player and stay tied for the team lead in scoring. Desharnais is a team-best +10 and is tied for 1st in assists in the AHL with 21 for his season. He is currently also tied for 3rd overall in league scoring.

Worthy Mentions: Bubble Prospect RW Steve Quailer is the feel-good update of the week, after having a rough start to his season and missing all of last season with an ACL tear, Quailer had a goal and an assist in two games with Northeastern University over the weekend and went +2. C Louis Leblanc returned from injury and scored a goal in his first game back with the Montreal Juniors, he now has 13 in 22 games. D Morgan Ellis saw another rough week with the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles as the team lost 3 of 4 games, but he added two goals and a assist to his scoring. RW Danny Kristo had two assists in his first multi-point game of the season with his North Dakota team. C Gabriel Dumont scored his first shootout goal, a game-winner for the Hamilton Bulldogs over the Abbotsford Heat. C Andreas Engqvist was the only Bulldog over than Max Pacioretty over the week to score a goal. G Petteri Simila recorded his third shutout and has 3 in 19 games on his season.

Question Marks: RW Maxim Trunev was scratched twice by his KHL team during the week. D Jarred Tinordi has no points in 21 games and his London Knights have lost 7 of their last 10 games. C Ryan White is out of the lineup with the Hamilton Bulldogs with a knee injury. C Ben Maxwell is day to day with Hamilton dealing with an upper-body injury. RW Ian Schultz has now played 15 games in the AHL with no points. The Hamilton Bulldogs roster seems very snakebit, with Pacioretty being responsible for 10 of the team’s last 16 goals, the second-leading goal scorer on the team is still Yannick Weber and he’s not been with Hamilton for their last 9 games.

Current selections to IIHF Under-20 World Junior Hockey Championship Camps:
C Louis Leblanc – Team Canada
C Michael Bournival – Team Canada
RW Brendan Gallagher – Team Canada

Habs Future

Robert Rice (Seriousfan09) compiles his weekly look at players in the Canadiens’ system, beginning with his Three Stars.

1. RW Max Pacioretty is the first Canadiens prospect to claim 1st Star of the Week for a second time in Hab’s Future and for the second consecutive week no less. Pacioretty continued his explosive season in the AHL with three goals and an assist in his three games played. Pacioretty has eleven goals and fourteen assists over 21 games and is now fourth overall in league scoring in the AHL. His scoring totals are currently pacing to have him in the running for setting a Hamilton Bulldogs record in single-season scoring. The high-flying Pacioretty has had a hand in a remarkable sixty five percent his team’s scoring over his last 6 games.

2. G Karri Ramo continues to show near-flawless work in net this season for his KHL team Avangard Omsk. Ramo added two more wins to his record for the week including a shutout and has now won twelve of his last thirteen starts in goal.  Ramo now enjoys a Goals Against Average of 1.91 and a .923 save percentage on his season and his GAA and save percentage for the week was an impeccable 1.00 and .973.

3. RW Phillippe Lefebvre rounds out the honours list by doing his best to pick up the slack with the Montreal Juniors while Louis Leblanc recovers from injury. Lefebvre had two goals and an assist in two games and was a +3 on the week, including claiming 1st star of the game honours for scoring the 3rd goal and assisting on the game-winning goal in his team’s win over the Shawinigan Cataractes earlier in the week.

Late-breaking news: Louis Leblanc and Michaël Bournival have been invited to tryout camp for the WJC team.

Worthy Mentions: RW Alexander Avtsin had his first game-winning goal of the year in a win over the Binghamton Senators, it was his third goal of the season. C David Desharnais does not intend to roll over in his race to repeat as the team’s scoring leader, he had a goal and two assists on the week to match fellow Bulldog Max Pacioretty in scoring on the season and is 7th overall in league scoring in the AHL. C Michaël Bournival scored a goal and two assists over three games and breaking a two-game scoring slump. C Dustin Walsh had a goal and assist in his two games with Dartmouth Big Green over the weekend. RW Brendan Gallagher continues to maintain an impressive scoring pace with two goals and an assist on his week, which has him at 6th overall in scoring in the WHL and 2nd in goals with 22 goals and 16 assists in 26 games. C Joonas Nattinen, a bubble prospect has two assists in his first two games back in the Finnish Junior League after returning from an achilles tendon injury.

Question Marks: RW Steve Quailer, a bubble prospect does not appear to have recovered well from an ACL tear he suffered last year which saw him miss his 2nd season of NCAA hockey, he has only one point and is -6 over 13 games this season. C Ben Maxwell has a day to day upper-body injury and has had issues with scoring for several weeks. C Ryan White has a knee injury that is currently expected to see him out of action for at least a couple of weeks. RW Aaron Palushaj has been dealing with a sore ankle again and has only one assist in his last five games, the same ankle problem that saw him out of action to start the season with Hamilton. C Louis Leblanc was scratched from action with his junior club this week as he recovers from an upper body injury suffered on November 6th, he had previously been trying to play through the injury without much success. RW Ian Schultz is still without a point in 12 games as a Hamilton Bulldog. D Jarred Tinordi has no points in the OHL in 18 games. RW Danny Kristo still having a serious scoring slump with only 5 points in 16 games this season.  D Alexei Yemelin was penalized twice for checking to the head in the KHL over 3 games and has been suspended.

Habs Future

Robert Rice (SeriousFan09) compiles his weekly look at Canadiens prospects.

The Three Stars

1. RW Max Pacioretty runs away with the 1st Star honours on his 22nd birthday. After being held off the scoresheet against the Toronto Marlies on Tuesday night, Pacioretty score four goals and three assists in a three game in three night schedule for his team from Friday to Sunday. On Friday night, he would have two assists against the Rochester Americans, and his second assist would help set up what would turn out to be the game-winning goal. On Saturday afternoon, he recorded a natural hat trick that would allow the Bulldogs to get a point from what became a 4-3 loss for the Bulldogs in the shootout, Pacioretty was also the only Bulldog to score in the shootout. To round out his week, Pacioretty scored the initial go-ahead goal for Hamilton and than had a hand in burying the dagger on an unselfish pass to teammate JT Wyman who got an empty net goal to seal a 3-1 win for the Bulldogs. Pacioretty is now 10th overall in league scoring in the AHL with eight goals and thirteen assists.


2. D Alexei Yemelin
has his best week in the KHL to date with three goals in three games with his KHL club Ak Bars Kazan. It was Yemelin’s first three-game point streak of the season and his best career streak in regular season play. Yemelin had his first game-winning goal of the season of the season as well with his 2nd goal of the week against KHL team Severstal Cherepovets.  He also showed a bit of his temperamental side, racking 18 PIM in his final game of the week, he had 20 PIM total for his week. He is 15th overall in scoring by a defencemen in the KHL and tied for 6th overall in goals by a defencemen.


3. G Karri Ramo continues to be the story of the Habs goaltending prospects so far this season, he has only lost one game in his last eleven starts now with his KHL club Avangard Omsk and had a perfect threee-win week, including a shutout. Ramo had a masterful week in nets that saw his Goals Against Average sit at a flat 2.00 and held up a save percentage of .930. He is 6th overall in the KHL in Goals Against Average and tied for 1st overall for wins.

And a Brendan Gallagher video:

Y2jtmeTMmy8

 

Worthy Mentions: C David Desharnais continues his solid scoring pace in the AHL, he is currently 3rd overall in AHL after adding a goal and 4 assists to his scoring this week, he also notched two goals in two shootout attempts in a shootout win over the Toronto Marlie on Tuesday night after the first one was disqualified as he had taken the wrong place in the shootout order. RW Alexander Avtsin is now firmly back in the lineup with the Hamilton Bulldogs after a wrist injury kept him out of the lineup, he added a goal and two assists to his scoring on the week and is 2 for 3 in shootout attempts this season. C Ben Maxwell finally snapped his 13-game goal drought and had a goal and assist on the week. C Gabriel Dumont had his first professional game-winning goal on Sunday when he scored against the Toronto Marlies. RW Danny Kristo finally scored his first goal of the season, a game-winning goal no less with his University of North Dakota NCAA squad. RW Brendan Gallagher scored two goals and one assist in his only game of the week with the Vancouver Giants, he now has 20 goals in 24 games this season. D Morgan Ellis added a goal and assist to his scoring totals with his Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in the QMJHL.

 

Question Marks: C Louis Leblanc is continuing to feel the effects of an upper-body injury he sustained on Nov. 6th in a game against the Quebec Ramparts and has only one assist in his last 4 games, he finally had to sit out a game on Saturday for purposes of recovery. RW Phillippe Lefebvre went without a point as did C Michael Bournival who was also a -4 on his week. RW Ian Schultz is still without a point in 11 games with Hamilton. G Robert Mayer’s .866 save % and 3.29 GAA speaks for itself right now. C Ryan White has injured his knee and is currently out for an undetermined length of time. D Jarred Tinordi sat out his last game with the London Knights with a knee injury as well.
