    Their D has never recovered from letting Rob Scuderi and Hal Gill leave after they won the cup. A whole bunch of puck movers, no shutdown guys

    The NHL CHOSE not to police the league, not that they couldn't

    I love how all of my friends out west here who are complaining about the hockey we're seeing here between the Flyers and the Pens and how it's awful are the same people who were high fiving and cheering while the Boston Bruins were dragging the game of hockey back to the stone age last year. The garbage acts we've seen today are a direct result of the NHL letting the Bruins run wild on other teams last season. I hope the NHL head office likes all the ridiculous injuries we're going to see in these playoffs cause it'll be their fault

    People like to call Philly a classless, dirty organization? (granted most of the time that is true and there's plenty of evidence to back that up). But the national media needs to take off their Pittsburgh coloured glasses. The arrogance of that franchise has led to this gong-show of a game. Aaron Asham is a disgrace

    This was the first time I got to go to a game here in Edmonton where Montreal won since Janne Niinamma scored on his own net in the late 90's (best live game memory). Subban was dominant tonight. He handled Jordan Eberle better then I've seen anyone handle Eberle all season here. After his penalty against Omark he settled in to play the best game I've seen a Hab play live in front of me in a long time. Hall was a little more effective on the other side against Georges but only scored when he was out against Campoli. And Gomez astoundingly played the best game I've seen him play in years. Shoutout's go to the Hab fan wearing a paper bag over his head across the aisle from where I was sitting and the award for least family appropriate sign goes to the girl who brought one that said "Everytime Pacioretty scores I touch myself". You really can't make that up (and since he scored twice tonight...........)

    Doesn't mean he'd make a great goalie coach. Gretzky was the greatest scorer of all time, his Coyotes teams couldn't put the puck in the net to save their lives. My fear is Roy would get too easily frustrated with his goalies that he'd want to go strap on the pads himself.

    Phenomenal post. I definitely agree with almost everything you had to say, however a couple of reservations. I think Roy has to be at the top of the list of potential head coaches for the Habs (also because they'll need some positive press heading into next season), the only worry I have about him is if he'll be too tempted to get involved too much with the goaltending. I'm afraid he'll stick his nose too much into the goaltending coaching then he should and might alienate his goalie coach and goaltenders. But maybe he is able to seperate Roy the player from Roy the coach there. If so, all aboard. As for Gainey as the President of the team, I think he showed by stepping down as GM that he's just more interested in a part-time consultants role at this stage of his life. The Presidents role would probably be more work then he'd be willing to take on. Keep him where he is, but I like the idea of Ken Dryden as team president. What is he up to these days anyway now that he's not in parliament?
