- Comment on Tokarski will get start in goal for Canadiens vs. Jets (2015-03-26 13:46:07)
Toker was a delight to watch last Tuesday in Florida. The two goals that got past him would have beat any goalie Price included. He stood on his head for that win.

They have a 4 pointer tomorrow night in Ottawa. Should be a pretty intense game. If the B's lose that one they're toast.

Patches never really showed the potential to be the sniper that he is today. We're just very lucky how it turned out. Sekac's game is very like the early Pacioretty years. Only time will tell the trade was a blunder or not.

The Red Wings just keep finding them. Check out this 4th rounder they have down in Grand Rapids. http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/id/34964/you-have-to-see-this-goal-by-red-wings-prospect-andreas-athanasiou

Great news for all us Newfie Habs fans. There's a lot of Habs fans down here. They'll certainly get better support than in Hamilton. Hopefully we can hang on to them. Laval sounds like a bad idea for a lot of reasons.

So we've clawed our way to first place in the league. It's pretty impressive considering the turnover in the roster. There must be a whole bunch of folks doing something right, players, coaches, management. Would never say it from some of the comments here. LA was 25th in GF last year and a +32. GA 1st. In their first cup year they were 29th in GF and +15! GA 2nd. It's not glamorous but defence wins championships. Period.

It's Price that's mainly responsible for that. He's stopped 13 of 16 attempts. An excellent showing, but Enroth has stopped an amazing 23 of 24 attempts! Not sure about the Tokers numbers.

No problem. My proposal may well be unrealistic. The point I was trying to make is that MB has done the opposite of what most people expected. Not the first time. It may well be that he tried and balked at the cost. We only speculate here. If we go all the way this year the transactions will collectively be seen as a stroke of genius.

No I don't know for sure. "Could" = subjunctive mood. Take it easy man.

Yes I would have liked to see Yakupov or Eberle. If we go all the way with these moves we'll be bowing down at MBs feet, laying palm leaves in his path... if not...
