- Comment on Silver for Diaz, bronze for Galchenyuk at world championship
It's hockey and things happen in the heat of the moment. Pacioretty seemed like a whiny bitch this season. The Habs future looks bright but with 6 more years at 4.5 million Pacioretty needs to toughen up and play more physical. Seemed to go through spurts where he was feeling sorry for him self.
- Comment on Habs can clinch playoff spot with win in Buffalo
What is with all the comments about not wanting to play the Leafs in the first round because of the fear of losing? Come on people! There will be nothing sweeter than the Leafs finally making the playoffs after 9 long years and then losing to the Habs in the 1st round. The chance to see the reaction of Don Cherry, Glen Healy and the rest of the CBC Leafs lovers when they go down far outweighs the chance of losing!
- Comment on Emelin out for the season with torn knee ligament
Those are 4 solid lines. Halpern has shown some sparks of offensive playmaking and I think Bourque should compliment him well. All 4 lines have offensive threat.
- Comment on Price will start against Hurricanes; Subban NHL's second star for March
MB will stand pat and I predict no moves. The top 3 lines are already set. Who would get displaced if a rental player is picked up? Assuming Bourque returns: Ryder - Pleks - Gio Patches - DD - Gallagher Galchenyuk - Eller - Bourque Armstrong/Moen - Halpern/White - Prust I don't even see the need for a D-Man especially if Diaz returns. I like our chances this year with what we have. Looking at the cap space and the contracts for next year ... the real chance to make a run at the cup is next year. Kablerle's salary is off the books, there are no expensive contracts to renew, all of our youth will only get better over the summer and the experience of at least one round of playoffs this year. And we have cap space to add a key player (assuming Ryder is not re-signed or if he can be convinced to sign for a less)
- Comment on About last night ...
Why do Habs fans overreact so much? There are only 4 teams in the league who have scored more goals than the Habs so far this season. Scoring is not a problem for this tea. We played the best team in the league, outplayed them and lost 1-0. Sometimes the bounces don't go your way.
- Comment on No time to mope
What happened to all the "character" we have in the dressing room? Someone has got to stand up and call out this team. The Cole line and in particular Cole seems to be the only guy laying all out on line every shift. The team needs to play with the same intensity as they seem to play with on the penalty kill for the rest of the game ...
- Comment on Molson moves to clarify coaching move, quell language firestorm
Bigoted piece of garbage .. disgust ... those are some powerful words. As a habs fan I want the best coach hired regardless of what language he speaks. But at the same token, I am rational enough to understand that the team is situated in a province where the primary language is French and that having a coach that can communicate in French is required.
