- Comment on How the East has changed
Everyone knows that the Habs outplayed, got some unlucky bounces, untimely injuries, Boston. That being said, Montreal will be the most improved this year for the simple facts that adding Markov, Gorges and Emelin (and hopefully sitting Spacek - who was the worst Dman in the 1st round last year), is clearly an upgrade over Sopel, Hamrlik and Wiz. A healthy Patches playing on the 2nd line with Gom and Gio will rejuvenate and open the ice up for Gomez/Gionta - didnt Gomez accumulate quite a few of his 40 points when Max got the call - that line was fun to watch. Cole will open the ice up for Pleks to get the one-timer to Cammy. A third line of Eller (when he gets back, and this kid will be good and better than Leblanc), AK and Moen gives you size, speed and skill. I would love to see a 4th line of White, DD, and Ian Schultz. And Price IS that good. All in all and I'm not trying to be biased but the Habs have a great balance of speed, skill, and size. Really only 5-6 guys are under 6'0". Go Habs, cant wait for October.
- Comment on So how do you like your Montreal Canadiens?
Instead of signing Stewart, would love to see Ian Schultz get a chance to play on the 4th with White and Descharnais. He wont score much, but is a decent skater, responsible and likes to stir the pot. Big and tough.
