This what playoff hockey is all about so yes Gainey took the NHL at it's word and thought the game would be about speed, skill and finesse with good hard body checking, but alas, it's not even close. I knew the Habs were screwed last night on the first shift. PK gets cross checked in the face then Price gets tripped, no call on either, you may call this whining but check the video and tell me I'm wrong!! Go Habs Go !!

Salary Cap always confuses me. TSN saying if Habs send Kaberle to the minors it will free up cap room for a possible trade before the deadline. Can someone please explain??? Go Habs Go !!

Could every nut bar, trade this and trade that guy on here just calm the &^** down already!! We are not a first place team and I would honestly like to wind up 6th, play the division winner from the weak one, Carolina or Winnipeg, even the Caps. This team plays better on the road. We are due for a rough patch, I would rather have it now then in 3 weeks or when the playoffs start. As for trades if Prust isn't coming back soon then we need a Clowe type guy because Moen just doesn't seem to be up for the job and I like Moen. We've got a good mix of vets and youngsters, please don't blow that apart for a rental. Let Timmins work his magic again with all those picks next year. He has earned that right with his recent picks in the past few years. Go Habs Go !!

That idiot reporter on TSN last night saying the Habs are intimidated by the Bruins, kudos to Mike Johnson for saying no way. But I would like to put this forth to my fellow Habs fans. Are the referee's and in turn the NHL intimidated by the Bruins? My evidence is the high stick on Max Pac with what 3 minutes to go, there is no way they didn't see that. There is no way they were going to call a penalty. Then the blatant stick to Prust's throat by that puke Marchand. Now I know it wasn't a vicious swing or slash but come on it was clearly a penalty and no call? What gives, Marchand clearly knows he will not be called for it, he's even smirking when he gets up. I could provide about 6 other examples from last night, Thornton running at Subban but it is clear to me the refs are intimidated. It is also clear to me that we need to keep playing like we have in the Bruins and Leafs games. Reminded me of the Red Wings in late 90 and early 2000's, they take hits and abuse, just skate away, get in the odd fight when needed and beat them on the scoreboard. I think it is the way we need to keep going. No goons needed, I will take a 4-3 or 5-2 win every day over winning a fight and losing a game. Go Habs Go !!

As you can tell by my handle, Chris Nilan is one of my all time fav. Habs. Chris you are the definition of class and perseverance. Any younger Habs fans ask anyone over 30 about what Chris meant to Montreal. Go Habs Go !!
