This was so awful. The horror. The horror.

Gomez is awful tonight. Its as if the Habs are trying to lose on purpose to increase ratings for Saturday night with Toronto.

Camallerri has caught Higginitis.

Those missed open nets by Moen and Cammalleri could be the game. Come on Cammi!

I haven't posted here in a long time even though I joined the website when it started up 6 or 7 years ago. But tonight, after seeing what Chara did, I'm so angry that I feel the need to express my disgust here. I hope Pacioretty is OK. I fear that his career as a potential high scoring power forward might be over. The only thought that makes me feel slightly better in this moment is a fantasy of Max's family suing the pants off of Chara -- letting the NHL know that if they don't take care of their business properly, then the courts will.

That would be soooo awesome. And then a civil suit for 10 million.

I can't stomach it anymore. I'm done. Boone, it's been great following your blog for almost 7 years, but it's time to move on for me. I'm slowly closing the door on decades of being a hockey fan. I have tickets in the first row behind the Montreal bench during the next Bruins matchup and that will be the last time I financially support the NHL. Like most people here, I read hockey news every day so it will be hard to give this up, but I think a real profesional sport is what I'm looking for now. Bettman, you win. You can have the NHL. I'm out.

As nice as it would be to have Ryder's 25 goals per season, the Canadiens are the 4th highest scoring team in the NHL. Quite impressive for the Habs!

Regarding the Halak situation: I think that Gainey wants to make sure that he can confidently not re-sign Huet next year and still have some high calibre goaltending. So he's trying to give Price as much playtime as possible before the end of the season. And if things go according to plan and Price shows that he can take over reasonably well next season, it will be 1A Price, 1B Halak. This is what I hope at least because a Price/Halak combo would be fantastic, especially since it gives the Habs extra cap space next year if they don't have to shell out 4M$ for a goaltender. The following season when they have to renegociate a few more contracts (including the goalies), they will be shedding Dandenault and Bouillon's salary in favour of younger/cheaper guys.
