    "My Karma Ran over Your Dogma" Yessiree, the talking heads may have moaned about the B squad iced by the Bruins last night, and I will even extend them a courtesy that they said the same things about the Hospital Habs during the three year stretch where everyone had the flu, some broken bone or or a combination of the two. Tough. Eventually things even out, just like Daddy Campbell's Ref Squad ... I feel zero sympathy for them and revel in their being beaten. If a giant elbow pad feel from the rafters and took out little b---- Campbell, I would shed no tears. Yesterday CJ asked "is there a dirtier player than Gryba?" I realized that he must have deliberately omitted Chris Neil, since that would be like comparing Charles Manson to Lucifer - case in point; during the late period chance at the Blues net, Pietrangelo loses his footing boxing out Neil. With the admiring ref standing near by, Neil delivers a lung collapsing crosscheck to the falling Pietrangelo who is slow to get up. Gee, ya think? But even if there are different rules for the scumbags (eventually) they will find themselves "in an iron coffin, with spikes on the inside". "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    Anxious Announcers Analyzing Analytics ... Perhaps lost in the current Hab season and their perceived over achievement based on their stats is that the sample size is small. Over an 82 game season, it is highly probable that poor advanced stats will accurately reflect a poor team point wise - the short term would be the outlier. What we have seen in the current 6 game wining streak is clear advantages in stats due to the team playing better; to their capabilities if you will. There is no reason that this is more reflective of what they will put together the next 80 percent of the season. At the end of the year, they will be high in the standings and high in the advance stat category. Of course having Carey Price can let you fudge a bit if necessary.

    Max, as an FYI, I think Hockeytown is sort of a district name - like Centreville. They have a restaurant area called "greektown" for example. "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    I doubt it was considered in the move to get Gonchar, but if they would consider planting PK in front of the net to battle and bang in loose pucks (and rotate to the slot for a quick blast) I could get behind that. "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    Hi CJ, my take from last week was that emelin needed trend down (yes I said it matty) to the "Matt Greene" slot and Nate needed to rise up to d4. "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    Just to clarify, when Gonchar let Moen waltz around him it was because he thought he had support from the other side. "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    Hobie, to be fair, I think the concerns expressed were that it was a bit of jump up in the draft based on the evident skill at the time. I don't take much stock in arm-chair experts ... if the sharp minds in the front-office felt that this was a viable "project" (a project seemed to be the consensus of both the pro and con sides for McCarron) then I was ok with that. Chris has posted extensively in the past about the difficulty of a big man being able to stop/start accelerate in the NHL and I think this is has the ring of truth. This was and is the knock on Lucic; when he is coasting and turning, he thinks he is moving his feet but in reality the play is getting away from him. This would be my one concern but I am convinced he will be up for good in 2016 and not just as a 4th line grinder. "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    Add me to the list that would like to see Galchenyuk replace Desharnais on the PP. It is clear to me that he has the quick hands and vision a "l'artiste" to run the pp off the half wall and the ability to drive to the slot if required. Would still like to see Eller or Bourque in front of the net. "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"
