The reason Montreal's powerplay is so ineffective is because it's really only about a minute long. Wee Davey gets sent out for the first half of it, and that's basically the same as playing 4-on-4.

Holy crap Hugh!!! I lived in the GTA for 20 years before returning home to Alberta last year. I was always amazed at how Buffalo seemed to exist in the "eye" of the worst weather that winter could throw at the region. Every other year I'd drive down to North Carolina to spend Christmas with my brother and his family. Invariably I'd have to endure blizzard conditions through Buffalo, while everything north and south of it was reasonably calm and just average winter conditions. Make sure you warm up your back before digging out from under that mess!

I'd really like to pry Eberle away from Edmonton - I'd be willing to give up Emelin, plus a couple prospects maybe, to accomplish that. But I'd insist they take Desharnais as part of the deal...

Eller is a permanent #2 / #3 centre. Otherwise I agree with all you say.

I still think Serge Savard trading Chelios straight up for Denis Savard was worse...but not by very much.

No need to admit it - all the Habs fan on this site who have read your posts already know you're a loser.

Playing Vanek and Briere is a waste of time...both are useless.

I, like many others I'm sure, take lineup suggestions with a grain of salt. However, IMO, having Bournival sit to make room for Galchenyuk was the wrong decision - it should have been Prust or Briere. So, heretofore is the recipe for Canadiens success for the remainder of the series: Vanek - Desharnais - Pacioretty Galchenyuk - Plekanec - Gallagher Bourque - Eller - Gionta Bournival - White - Weise Subban - Gorges Markov - Emelin Bealieu - Weaver Simple as that! :)
