I didn't get to watch the game last night cuz apparently paying bills is way more important than the habs in the playoffs. anyways, I came on to talk about price. he had a bad game. the team pulled one out for him. from what I read, he won the game in overtime, regardless of who scored. I think price was extremely nervous about this game. he may have won gold, and had his best season. he still has a monkey on his back when it comes to playoffs. only one series win in his career, and none since halaks 2010 heroics. the team kept this game in hand, and I believe that the overtime last night will set the pace for price in the playoffs. ill forgive another game like the one he had last night. we just need the team to win the game for him, like he did for the team all year long. we just need to win this one series. if price walks out of the series a winner with a 4.00 GAA, it wont matter. he will have won, and will do wonders for his confidence. there is more pressure on the Stanley cup playoffs than there is at the Olympics. I believe price will be in net for #25. the team in front of him just needs to do what they did last night.

So where are all the DD haters at? Haven't heard anyone say he's a waste of cap space in awhile.

Tokarski is from my town. I'm pretty sure he isn't a toker.

I think this trade was more of a favour to help Florida get some cap space to acquire Lou. Don't be surprised to see that pick come back, or perhaps another deal that leans into the habs favour.

I think subban is off his game, feeling snubbed over not playing in the Olympics. He is overthinking his game. This explains why his game has been off for some time now. Before he was trying to work his way into the top six. Now he is trying to prove that he should have been in the top six. Isn't working out for him. I'm hoping that we won't be seeing him in a habs jersey much longer. I like him, and if there was no cap, I'd want to keep him. However, he will ask for stupid amounts of money, since phaneuf got 7 mil. That kind of money could be really useful up front. I'm not gonna pretend to know trade value, but I would like to see a trade involving subban and eberle. Eberle has term, a good salary, and is just a good player to have up front. I'd love to see eberle with galchenyuk. Might not address the problem of size up front, but it would solve the problem of having some skill up front. Skill that MT would use anyways. Who am I kidding? He's under 30. MT wouldn't use him.

Just saw your Regina forecast there Boone. It's more like -27 in Regina right now. Low of -39 is called for tonight, with the wind.

Why was subban, a healthy scratch, dressed for the game?

With subban knowing international ice better than any player on the roster (Bellevue Bulls play on international ice) I have to wonder why subban isn't getting a better chance. I'm not saying he deserves to be top four, but he deserves a better look at least.

Any idea on when this game starts in saskatchewan? I can finally catch a game here. Stupid jobs always getting in the way of what's important.
