I also like Weaver's contribution. But I get the sense that probably at least 2 of these 3....Tinordi, Beaulieu, Pateryn ...will start the season in Montreal. Could be that they need to make some room.

Hmmm.....OK. Thanks for that link. I'll bookmarks it and check on it periodically.

Great. Can't see it being any different here then. So worst case scenario is I subscribe to Centre Ice. Sucks, but I need all Habs games. I'll wait until September to see how everything shakes out before I do subscribe, but at least I know I have an option that will give me all 82 games. Thanks for your help.

Can anyone in the southern Ontario region, particularly in the Niagara region, tell me if they have used Centre Ice in recent years and whether or not all Habs games were available to them. I tried Centre Ice a number of years ago, until RDS began broadcasting all Habs games. Even though I was paying $200 for the season, some Habs games were blacked out. Have any of you had that happen? Or has that changed in recent years? I need to start considering all my options now due to this Rogers Canadian NHL broadcasting monopoly. I know I'll get HNIC on CBC but the rest seems to be doubtful. Sure I can get Sportsnet and CITY, but I'm getting the sense that the Habs games will not be available to me in my area of Ontario, on those channels.

Agree. The Rangers are a good team. So are the Habs. If you had to look for goal scorers, and offensive punch, which team might be in better shape there? I think the Habs have an edge in that department, The seven goal barrage last game was more of a Habs meltdown than a Rangers show of force. Let's see how it plays out.

I don't think you have anything to lose by giving Tokarski a shot tonight. We know what we have in Budaj, and so do the Rangers. They don't know much, if anything, about Tokarski. You give a guy trying to crack the NHL a shot, and who knows, he might shine. It also forces the rest of the team to play their nuts off, and to play a more offensive game, keeping the puck in the other end of the rink. If it doesn't work, you can go back to Budaj, who is a complete professional who I doubt has his shorts in a knot for not getting the start tonight. Sometimes you roll the dice.

Hey, you're welcome. I'll have to defer to your more in-depth posts and get some schooling.

If Price is not exactly 100%, it certainly isn't going to be acknowledged. But let's take MT's word for it unless it proves otherwise.

If you're going to get thumped, and need a wakeup call, game 1 is pretty much the best time for it to happen. This team should bounce back next game. Now, if Price is not able to play, all bets are off. Budaj came into the game at a bad time. He came in when certain Habs (Prust for one) decided to go kookoo for cocoa puffs and faced a barrage of PP offense from the Rangers. He wouldn't be as bad as that period today, but Price is the guy we need.
- Comment on HI/O Show: Bring on the Rangers! (2014-05-16 09:19:36)
Thanks. I read a lot, but don't post as often. Perhaps because this team has befuddled me all year long. If I praise them, they go out and stink the joint up. If I trash them, they come up with the game of their lives. I felt they had a good shot at the Bruins, but really didn't think they could win a 7 game series. But saying that, I also felt that if they could pull it off vs Boston, they would be in the final. I know it will be a battle with the Rangers but I really believe that if the Habs continue to play as they have, they will prevail, pushing forward into the final. Man for man, I think the Habs are a slight bit better. They are also playing like a team possessed. A team with a focus and a mission. I'm starting to sense one of those magical playoff runs that I have seen so often in the past, but not in the recent past. Going into Wednesday's game 7, I was completely confident that the Habs would win. It was something I just felt. I told my daughter it would be good triumphing over evil. The Hockey Gods would smile on the Habs. The Habs will continue to be the good guys, and I hope the gods continue to smile on them.
