- Comment on Bring on the Senators!
Look past the first round. Assume the Penguins beat the Islanders (likely the highest probability.) In that case, the Habs can only face Leafs, Bruins or Capitals in the 2nd round.

Because he deserves (at least) five games, and if the victim had been wearing a Habs jersey, no one on HIO would disagree. That sort of careless (or deliberate) play that is almost certain to injure needs to be punished out of the game. Sooner, rather than later. No matter who is doing it and no matter who is on the receiving end.
- Comment on Bourque out indefinitely with a concussion
Will create an oddly unbalanced schedule, especially for teams -- like the Habs -- in eight-team divisions. 28 games against the 14 Western Conference teams (one home, one away). 24 games against the eight teams in the other Eastern Conference (two home, one away or vice versa to be rotated every season). 30 games against the other seven teams in the Habs' own division; (five games against two teams and four games against five teams four times) So every western team will visit the Bell Centre once, all eastern teams will visit once, some twice, and every divisional rival will visit twice and one team will visit three times.
- Comment on GM Bergevin must be smiling
When Gallagher comes back; who sits, Armstrong? DD?

And because idle speculation and wishful thinking is all that's left for Habs fans this season: Would an early playoff exit convince Sid that the Pens (who mishandled his concussion) aren't really the dream team of his UFA future?

So who goes where? Fill in the blanks: Plex to Washington -- 1st round pick (dream on) Gill to Pens -- 2nd round pick Moen to Campoli to
