the question was about price and i got multiple responses about diaz. diaz got a couple of assists last year when he played in PK's spot on the PP during PK's absence at the start of the year. let's not confuse diaz passing the puck to Markov as a great skill. anyone could have passed the puck across the ice. the habs D is terrible. check this post in early December to confirm my suspicion that the habs will be in the bottom third [that's 20-30th overall] of the league in goals against. g b ps. MB is building for 5 years from now, not next season

if that is the criteria price is in big trouble. dont get me wrong, i love the guy but he failed to do much in time with the habs. i believe he has 1 playoff series win in the last six years? that is not "handling the pressure."

finally someone who understands our blueline is terrible and needs some help.

yeah, diaz is brutal. true he got a bunch of PP assists before his injury and did almost nothing upon his return. while he has some offensive upside, he is small and lacks any real defensive abilities. let the record show, he was on the ice during the canadiens collapse down the stretch and in the playoffs. in conclusion, he is brutal and we need some people on the blueline who are gonna move people out of the way of carey price and perhaps even prevent a goal or two.

something to ponder.... our d-core is not in good shape to start the season with Emelin hurt. the remaining guys are weak at best: PK - norris winner = beast Georges - coming off a poor season Markov - legend, but 35 with two bad knees and aging Diaz, Tinordi, Boullion, Drewiski, Beaulieu = rookies or brutal [keep in mind, one of these guys will be on the 2nd pairing...omg] the habs were the top scoring team from the blueline from last year if memory serves which is great. all of this mess adds up to the habs giving up many scoring changes and odd man rushes that will undoubtedly result in lots of goals given up. and here is where my thought lies - is this awful D gonna cost Carey Price a shot at Team Canada? i would love to say that no matter what, Price will 'stand on his head' and stop everything. well he didnt after Emelin got hurt and we then we made a quick playoff exit. in closing, dont be surprised if Price doesnt make the team come selection time when his regular season numbers from 2013-2014 are terrible. your thoughts? g b

- Comment on Habs select McCarron in first round, Rosèmere native Fucale in second (2013-06-30 20:59:24)
why so much complaining? what does everyone expect the habs to do at 25 -- dont think a 'wayne gretzky' type player was still available at that time. we draft a monster who will dominate the bruins and people whine. then we draft a few small players and whining starts again. pretty sure all the 6"3, 210lbs scores went in the first round. as i recall, brendan gallagher was arguably our best forward last year and he isnt so small. let's just welcome these guys into the best organization and let the habs develop these kids into hockey players. and everyone hates subban coz he is black. there - its been said.
