oh well just saw the helmet...it's got a HUGE Simpons cartoon on the top of the helmet. I think he's braking thru a wall or something.

Is Quick still injured? Cause if he is, and since Scrivens playing his old team tomorrow night...maybe habs play vrs the 2nd backup (whoever that is). Apparently Budja got a new mask. Haven't seen a pix yet, hope no cartoon on it..or no Simpson cartoon lol!

I love Murray, and it's not a knock on Boullion. I just love how he is playing and how he hits. He is slow, but the pairing with Diaz is working. Diaz was my least fav dman, and now I don't even notice him. Murray adds something that was lacking on this D corp. Sure Emelin is tough, but this guy is even more so. This small team needs him more then what Bouillon can bring/add to this team.

Max-a-million...Pacioretty is NOT a lock for the USA team. They had him on the 3rd list of frwds (as in #1- for sure #2- most likely #3-doubtful) that I saw earlier this season. Now it was before he finally turned his season around. But most likely he will not make the top 12 unless they believe he has truly learnt the D side of things and use him as a bottom 6 frwd. He and PK are still on the bubble. Just a lot of really good players going ups vrs them.

Just wondering...do you think MacCarron leaving the NCAA to go the Canadian Hockey route may have hindered his chances of making the World Jrs? I mean, is it weird for me to think there may be some politics in these roster decisions. I am sure they prefer their American players to keep developing in the USA and to bring promotion to their development system, instead of walking away for Canadian development.

If Budaj, gorges and some mid picks lands you Hall you do it in a second. I think it would take A LOT LOT LOT LOT LOT more to get HAll!! BTW, Budaj is a great back up. I think they can get a bonifide starter from another team. Like Miller, or Reimer etc

Don't worry, line ups here is a typo... Prust with eller/galchenyuk as per Canadiens on twitter White centering Moen/bournival Bouillon in

Clutch...the difference will be in your cable/satellite fee. More NHL games will be available to view, but all will come at a cost. At minimum your cable bill will go up twice due to this, when affiliate contracts are to be renewed (assumed it will happen 2-3 times for Sportsnet) they will charge your cable provider more to have the sportsnet channels in their lineup, and of course your cable provider will pass that on to you. Also with a monopoly, they can charge whatever premium they want. So who knows how much it will cost. They asked them at conference yesterday if they see a pay per view future...of course they are like, "we are just celebrating this deal today we haven't looked that far ahead." sure...... by something for $5.2B without figuring out the plan for the future!

habsfan84...you have it partially right Blackouts are lifted ONLY for national games which will be shown Wed, Sat, Sun ONLY. So if MTL is playing one of those nights and Sportsnet choses to make that game the national game, then it won't be blackout in Ontario. The problem is they will definitely chose to show Leafs first nationally (it's their team). So for sure on one of those 3 nights, if both teams play, then you won't get to see the game even if on the East channel, cause it won't be national. At end of day, to be safe, I think next year should be ok with RDS still having 60 games, plus CBS MOST LIKELY showing HAbs on Saturday nights. You may not need anything else. The problem is in 2 seasons from now, you may have to switch from RDS package to TVAsport package to insure being able to watch all 82 games. And during the season you should be able to catch a few in English either on CBC Saturday night or MAYBE on a national broadcast for Sportsnet. TVAsports is available on Rogers cable (LOL!!!!) I will assume Bell offers it, I know Shaw does (I have it).
