Video: Cammy, Sopel question marks?

Canadiens forward Michael Cammalleri and defenceman Brent Sopel took therapy days, not skating at Brossard practice on a rotten Montreal winter’s day.

Questioned about their status for tomorrow’s game vs. the Boston Bruins, head coach Jacques Martin waffled a little, not coming right out and saying both are fine and would be available. Audio to come on that soon.

Most of the Habs were on the indoor soccer field a few ticks past 10 am, the practice schedule putting all but Cammalleri, Sopel and Mathieu Darche on the Brossard rink.

Renaud Lavoie of RDS reported that Darche, said to be rehabbing a groin injury, was back on the ice for the first time in 20 days, well before the team. Darche wasn’t on the rink by the time we arrived at 10 am, but the blue line was heavily scratched. Whoever had skated wasn’t using the whole rink.

    Thanks Robert and everyone that helped me with this.

  2. Ian Cobb says:

    Thanks to all for the help, You also little bird, you are a great teacher, your instructions were clear.!!

    check this out.

    then tell me you wouldn’t like Rupp in the lineup tomorrow night.

    listen to the Boston crowd after Thronton goes down.

    I wish I would have been there!!

    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.

    All the time is pushing it quite a bit, but yes he has some success in that area. Unfortunately, 90% of players in the NHL don’t have the wing span of a 747 like Gill.


    Also, it was a shame when Gill stood their watching as Lucic pushed around Price….

    No, that was Talbot. Rupp might have got one for NJ 9 years ago.

  6. rocketsglare says:

    Andrew, that was an anomaly. The Habs still must get bigger, stronger, and physical if they are to control the boards and

    the slot. They can’t be relying always on their speed and goaltending to win, especially against teams that are equally fast

    but also bigger, stronger, and more physical.

    Go Habs Go!



  7. Hobie Hansen says:

    Actually he’s had injuries this season and played in 81 games last year, when the Sens had a better record than the Habs. Also this season he’s even in the +/- department when the rest of the team is real ugly in that area…

  8. savethepuck says:

    So how much did you put on them. They were very good to me last week. 50 payed 93 @Atlanta, 50 payed 107.50 for me for a win in regulation @ Florida and a 20 parlay of Buff over Phi and Mtl over TB got me 113 saturday.

  9. G-Man says:

    How can the Habs be a longer shot than Nashville? TB at 12-1? That list is to laugh excepting the obvious ones.

  10. mrhabby says:

    were just reason to take it all so seriously.

    on a side note..interesting article from the Globe and Mail on the yotes to Winnipeg.

    since the bruins are our next opponents their stats in the league

    total points bruins  4th place

    goals against         1st place

    goals for                6th place

    they are having a very good season…good news is that they are 27th in pp opportunities so they dont get special pp treatment but they are 30th in times short handed meaning if they goon it up they really dont suffer for it…they will also probably have 12 forwards by the end of the year with 10 or more goals despite missing savard..

  14. CBrady12 says:

    Sorry last call is at 1:30

    Sorry you can’t go to any dep on the street corner for beer

    Sorry your women arent as hot

    Sorry you don’t have Schwartz’s

    I could go all day

    Ottawa’s amazing! I’ve lived in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and now Ottawa.

    Montreal is amazing on a Saturday night but all the politics and taxes ruin it for the rest of the week. So living a stone’s throw away in ottawa is perfect.

    I left the Centre Bell after the game against the leafs and was home for the beginning of the third in the late game on CBC a couple weeks ago.

    Here’s the dirtiest player in the league:

    When will the league suspend this criminal?


    Canadien en 5! Never go Full Retard

  17. lavie says:

    Only you can’t on Isle de Montreal.

  18. The Cat says:

    Sorry the three of you live in Ontario…^_^

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