Montreal has a good season though. When things are not going well, that's when the journalists look for dirt, who to get rid of, the source of the losing streak, etc.

It's better than Rask, not as good as Lundqvist. Rask: Talented goaltender with good upside. Lundqvist: Elite workhorse goaltender

DSP reminds me of Travis Moen without the fighting.

Full Quote: “Everyone wants to understand art. Why not try to understand the song of a bird? Why does one love the night, flowers, everything around one, without trying to understand them? But in the case of a painting people have to understand. If only they would realize above all that an artist works of necessity, that he himself is only a trifling bit of the world, and that no more importance should be attached to him than to plenty of other things which please us in the world, though we can't explain them. People who try to explain pictures are usually barking up the wrong tree.”

Right Defencemen : Subban, Petry, Gilbert, Weaver Left Defencemen: Markov, Emelin, Gonchar, Beaulieu If we keep left on left and right on right, who's the odd man out on the left side? Emelin, Gonchar or Beaulieu?

Nicolas Deslauriers on TVA Sports about the Brian Flynn transaction "This acquisition for a 5th round pick is a steal".

So... Dubinsky's goal yesterday. Reminded me of Moen's goal against Pittsburgh in the 2010 playoffs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQBvLY30mXY http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?id=2014020910-60-h At the time, I put all the blame on Gonchar, but looking back at it Gonchar slowed Moen enough to give time to both Kunitz and Letang to prevent Moen from having a good scoring chance. Kunitz just stopped skating, while Letang tried to check Moen instead of using his stick to deflect the puck.

It makes sense to me. In Santorelli Winnik and Franson, the Leafs moved players who will become UFA on July 1st. Moving players with bigger contracts may take more time since the Leafs may request more for them.

Was the last regular Swedish player on the Habs roster Niklas Sundstrom? Also, did somebody mess with google translate or Subban really translate to the B word from Swedish to English?
