Personally I thing bournival should be playing with eller and chucky. Prust with plecks and gionta And then moen white and parros if that is who is in. Briere is should be out. And Murray right now is a better fit than the cube in the lineup day to day.

I agree that Parros should be dressed as a deterrent. But I would not remove Bournival from the line up. He brings more to the team than Briere. Briere is one dimensional player which is easily demonstrated when Moen goes into his slot for defensive purposes. So putting Parros in taking Briere out Bournival and Moen can work in with Pleks and Gionta to limit Parros minutes.

Budaj is devout Christian same as the Flanders character in the Simpsons. In Colorado his teammates called him Ned because of this similarity.

People who have had concussions sometimes retain a sensitivity to bright light even after they recovery. The dark visors reduce the amount of light for those people.

I would like to see Douglas Murray get a 2 or 3 yr deal from the Habs. I would also sign Theo Peckham to a 2year and see if a change of scenery helps him out. That would build the depth needed and get the team bigger. The Drewski contract is a AHL depth deal and I don't see him as a viable 7th D. Tinordi can spend another year getting bigger stronger in the AHL. Bouillon or Peckham can play sixth spot until Emelin returns and then alternate the 7th slot with Diaz based on play. Bouillon\Diaz\Markov\Emelin are all UFA after next year and PK is RFA. They can retool after next year with a some your talent from Hamilton. Based on how the Markov injury ran over the years I would rather them be cautious with Emelin and not rush him back 2013-2014 Subban Georges Markov Murray\Emelin Diaz Murray\ (Bouillon) Peckham

Chuck. Nice post. Yes Price looks scramble and disjointed on some of the goals but there are 3 sens in covered while the Habs stand around watching the play. The team just looks atrocious.

Watching Regher in Buffalo before the trade he was an absolute turn style out there. He would occasionally find someone with the body, but man he would be hard pressed to beat Skillsy in a foot race.

Would like them to rest Markov for a few games. After being off for two years the mind is willing but the body may not be able to deliver. Give Drewskie some time to see if he can contribute as a 6th. Subban Franky B Weber Georges Diaz Drewskie

It looks like TB acquired Hall and immediately put him on waivers to send him down to the AHL. From TSN: Adam Hall Acquired from Carolina and waived. Salary dump?

Weber is a victim of circumstances. He never should have been brought up so young before he was ready and the Goat signed him to a one way contract which keeps him in this limbo. Needs more AHL time to develop but needs to clear waivers. At the money I think he would be plucked pretty quickly. I think this puts MB tough position with Weber. Like a Diaz or Rafalski, Weber's style and size requires more development time that the Habs really don't have the luxury of giving him.
