I expect Eller to bring it where it counts, in the post season. We've already ditched one playoff performer in Bourque. I hope we don't lose another at the trade deadline.

Gonchar is UFA this summer. He would have to settle for a serious pay cut for that to ever happen. Their combined caphit is currently near 10 mil, not sustainable for a 3rd pairing.

So, we outplay the Penguinos at the end of a road trip and after playing the night before. It sounds like the boys pulled together and self motivated to keep the energy going. I've said all along there's no need for these young bucks to be using the "got-nothing-in-the-tank-on-the-road-back-to-back-games-excuse"! Kudos to MB for going with CHaracter. YEAH BABY!

Wild game! There goes Rinne's Save% and GAA.

Yes, I have to agree, it was dull albeit informative reading.

An interesting stat just up on Sportsnet. The Habs lead the league in the difference between average goals scored per game at home and away. Almost 1.5 less GPG on the road than at home. That's a lot bigger gap than most other teams. I believe the Loafs were ranked around 4th with a differential of 1 PPG.

You don't have to log in to do the survey. Obviously Timo grabbed a hold of every PC, tablet etc that he could lay his hands on!

They've been burned so many times...

Thanks for sharing. He was one of my favourites too, back in the day.

I've watched Tangradi with the 'Dogs. He skates like he's wearing a couple of cement blocks. Dressing guys like him and Bowman is little improvement on the days when we were forced to call up the likes of Blunden.
