They should call up Greg Pateryn and have him play with Markov. He's solid defensively and has a little offence and it's the type of player Markov needs right now to back him up. He's got muscle and can handle the rough stuff. I don't think Markov is at his peak right now and hopefully with time he will improve, but he needs someone to back him up and although I love Diaz, this pairing is not going to help Markov get his abilities back.

I think it's time to ask Hal Gill if he wants to become a coach, his playing days are dwindling and he did an excellent job mentoring Gorges when he played with him.

Very glad to see this pointed out. This same group of people calling out for people to get traded are the ones then crying "We let go Markov, we let go Chelios, we let go Desjardins..." and blaming everything on management. Markov's been an all star for a long time in Montreal. He needs to be kept here as does Plekanec. Cheer instead of jeer.
- Comment on Re-Hab Halpern set to face Penguins (2013-03-26 12:47:05)
People have got to stop trying to sell the future this year. I don't believe we are strong enough to win it this year. Face it with Prust out we just don't have enough punch to go all the way. We would have to bring in someone like Jagr and a younger high level skill/guts player to get even close to the finals. I'm not satisfied with just getting to the level of winning the conference championship. Next year the rookies will have a year under their belt, and we can probably sign another impact player to make a real run at it. If we make it all the way I'll be happier than anyone, but I've difficulty seeing it.

It looks like they weighed all the circumstances correctly for once in this situation. At a stand up for your player Marc B.
- Comment on Pacioretty escapes suspension over McDonagh hit (2013-02-24 17:06:42)
I agree, I can't really say that Patch actually even jumped in the air to check DcDonagh, it seems like he just stands up into the check. I admit that McDonagh's check on Max doesn't look like he really hit him in that bad, but he does seem to ride him into the boards. Anytime you check someone close to the players seating, you should be careful. If Max gets a suspension, so should McDonagh. If Max bleeds on his check, does McDonagh get anything?
- Comment on Eller back in line up for Sunday’s game against Devils (2013-01-26 14:35:11)
What's the crap about knocking Kaberle and other players, I wish these non-HABS fans would go post on another site. Kaberle's been playing decent basic hockey for us, sure he's made a few mistakes, but not much, heck everyone on the team's made a few mistakes. Let the team grow instead of bitching all the time, encourage don't discourage. How do you feel when someone is always criticizing your work even when you do good work. Say positive stuff sometimes. The saying says if you've got nothing good to say about someone, shut the fuck up.
- Comment on Still no contract for bulked-up Subban (2012-08-31 18:12:13)
Mr. Suban will be negotiated with once the deadline approches. There isn't any hurry, he wants to be a Hab, the Habs will give him what he wants if another team wants to play footsies. I think it's just a matter of letting the chaff clear and doing a cut and set. All the other signings (Edmonton mostly) are a result of them not having a choice I feel (money matters) . It's easy to say these people weren't in their last year and got renegotiated, but PK is in the seniority list and it's got to be respected to a certain point. On the other side Habs management better not take too much for granted as the NHL/NHLPA talks appear to be all about money. If they don't show good faith with PK it may not turn in their best interest.
- Comment on Eller signs for two years (2012-07-09 12:36:26)
I'm with you 100% there, Habs made a big mistake, not to say Daigneault isn't going to help, he was a pretty good defenseman in his day as well, but Robinson man for those young guys coming up he was the best they could have got. Oh well let's move on and cheer for Daigneault to do his good work with the lads, seems he didn't so to bad in NY minor system.
