    Carey Price is why the Habs don't need an enforcer .... what? Consider that by keeping the Habs in every game, the other teams are not in a position to try and "settle"scores" or risk a penalty in a tight game. And where are the "I wish we could trade for Tom Wilson" crowd now? Young reckless punks are not needed for us to win or sell the game. Now get off my lawn !

    Ronn, the players are indeed nothing more than indentured servants. The NCAA should be up on RICO charges .... Maybe the NHLPA could loan Donald Fehr to lead the charge to organize a union (standing back to read the anti-union tub thumping from less "progressive" HIO brethren) "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    Some of us have posted this before, but repetition is the sincerest form of shouting so here goes: Don't worry about who is on the "top line", concern yourself with who gets how much ice time. Weise will not play 18 minutes, and Galchenyuk might play only 13 if the circumstances are similar to the last game. Thomas will probably flip flop with Prust off an on depending on the match-up that MT sees. Plekanec will be asked to sell beer during the weekend series and still get 18 minutes TOI per game. When either team scores, Eller's line will come on. "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    Matty, here is one from left field and a perfect fit ... if he passes the character test: Alexander Semin http://www.tsn.ca/a-deeper-look-at-a-slumping-alexander-semin-1.194712 You could get him for a bag of pucks with Carolina eating a chunk of salary. The suggested analytic take is that on a team with better goaltending, he can rebound and be good on a strong team but inversely bad on a poor to mediocre one.

    Pretty Simple Horse, I will stand and cheer if ever anyone on the Habs (I am ok if it is three guys at once) send him packing from the game - my point is that the players don't seem to care about doing that. "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    Ronn, at the risk of dumbing down you subtle subtext, you can't compare an international game then (the NHL wouldn't have suspended Clarke had he been tossed) and the local brotherhood that counts Rinaldo, Kaleta, Carcillo, etc amongst among its family. Among the players, it seems pretty clear that unless payback happens before they have a chance to cool down, they move on and it is forgotten. "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    Thanks Burli, you are spot on - I should have mentioned that there IS an on ice deterrent :-) "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    Because it makes the team play better? Revenge is for the fans or else the Habs would have gone all Carkner v Boyle against Gryba at least once. "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"

    Adam, I get your consistent message, but even if I accept your premise that the Habs are soff, there is zero evidence that people run Price because the team is soff. Teams run Price because he is our best player and they are trying to get him off his game - even if your premise is that having a tough team that runs the other goaltender (MAD) neutralizes the chance of it happening, it still isn't true. There is no empirical evidence that having "tough" players (how do you quantify that btw?) or a team of goons stops the other team from doing what they think is necessary (within the rules as they see it) to win. I get that you want to see more hits, bigger players, more fights etc because that's what you want to see and that's cool, everybody has their own sense of what is entertainment - my point is that there is no such thing as an on-ice deterrent.

    Yes, in the drunken romance of sweet revenge that feels good but I guess I want to believe that my team wears the white hat. Our running the goaltender guy is 5 ft 7 and makes contact with a side to side shrug ... "Don't crush that dwarf Alex Henry, hand me the pliers"
