Wisniewski questionable, Price vs NYR

Not likely done in training camps today: New York Rangers’ Tony Leswick goes up and over teammate Allan Stanley (hidden) and Fred Shero (yes, that Fred Shero) during Oct. 17, 1949 training camp practice.

AUDIO: Jacques Martin | Scott Gomez | P.K. Subban

Defenceman James Wisniewski was the only player missing from this morning’s practice in Brossard, home with an illness. Head coach Jacques Martin said the player is a question mark for Saturday afternoon’s home game vs. the New York Rangers.

Michael Cammalleri did not skate today, still nursing a separated shoulder that’s on the mend, and Martin said there was no timetable for his return.

No changes in lines, which meant: Pacioretty-Plekanec-Gionta | Kostitsyn-Gomez-Eller | Darche-Desharnais-Pouliot | Moen-Halpern-Pyatt

On defence: Subban-Gill | Spacek-Hamrlik | Weber-Picard

    I understand his priors too, my thing is that a huge workload in the big leagues, doesn’t spell a long springtime dance card, in fact it spells quite the opposite. I hope Price can be the exception, just like Marty was the year they won their cup, but the stats don’t lie, even though I hate them some of the time, they don’t lie. Shaker

    I wouldn’t care who was in the crease vs the leafs, the boys always seem to shite the bed against them no matter what.

    By that logic no player on the Montreal Canadiens has earned their salary save Price/Pleks/PK

  4. DearyLeary says:

    Predicted +/- for that 1:03, -4.

    Yes and no. The bulk of Price’s wins were early in the season. It’s still going to be 8-9 starts per 10 for Price for the remainder. I’d prefer to see the number closer to 8 though. So 2 starts per 10 games for Auld, at least, is my hope.

    There might be a temptation to play Price more during the final stretch and that is understandable. Especially if they hit a slump or a snag in March.

    The AVERAGE for Leafs tickets is $30 more than in Montreal? That’s insanity.
