We know that next year some of the extras won't be back, so this is a chance to see where younger, developing players are. Let's see who emerges as a developing leader. I'm wondering why we don't see Pateryn (lots of points) up for an evaluation.

I really respect Montreal's staff for giving these key players a chance to get healthy and ready for the playoffs. the team has nothing more to gain in these few remaining games so being rested and healthy is critical for the "real" season that soon begins. This will also be an interesting test for some of the lesser lights to show their strengths. cheers

I really like the Sens, second to Montreal. They have a limited budget, a smaller supporter base and market, and yet they are competitive. They're a real success story in our small economy.

I'm expecting Tampa to clobber the Leafs tonite as Tampa strives to win points to gain home ice advantage against Montreal in their few remaining games. A Tampa win of about 8-1 has a nice ring to it.

I would be dancing on air if Ottawa could decimate Toronto. What really, really, really annoys me is the CBC's continued focus on what's happening (more appropriately 'not happening') with the Leafs in their daily web articles. It's as if no other team exists.

i have complete confidence in Mtl's coaching staff. I If the mentioned players don't go to Chicago, then there will be a good reason. Frankly, I think at this stage of the season there's not much more to prove, but it is critical for players to be healthy and ready for the playoffs. cheers

i just finished reading the article above entitled "no need to cheer for habs outside montreal," by bruce arthur of postmedia news. he argues that each of canada's teams have their own fan base and they cannot/should not support a winning team should their own first preferred team disintegrate (eg toronto, edmonton, vancouver) what foolishness is this? Canadians are royally proud of the Cdn men's and women's hockey teams recent gold medals. What other small-population country can compare with this performance? (Remember the relative importance of hockey on the world stage? It was President Putin who didn't give a damn about anything else as long as the Russian teams won the hockey gold medal.) If Canada is to continue as a winning Olympic hockey team, then Canadians better show up to support Canadian winning teams even for the Stanley Cup. Hockey is an essential ingredient in our Canadian culture. This means us Habs fans too. We have to support any and every Canadian team as they advance. (My personal support is prioritized thusly: Montreal first; every other Cdn team next except Toronto; then begrudgingly Toronto should they every even make the playoffs again in my lifetime; then every Canadian Olympic player on usa teams. Rant for the day Looking forward to our team's best efforts and wishing them every success in the world as we emerge from a cruel Winter. cheers George K
