- Comment on Alexei Emelin in lineup, Nathan Beaulieu out for Habs against Bruins (2014-10-16 05:06:12)
Just in case any of the big dogs in charge of the site see this, just wanted to say I'm pleased to see that the home page has reverted back a little to it's simple form. While not as simple as before the non-changing front headline is nice to see. Besides the great content one good thing about this site has been the ability to quickly scan down and see the latest news. Perhaps I'm a bit impatient, but the extra load time required for the changing front box and then having to wait (or select) the different article headlines was more of an annoyance than a nice upgrade. (Also on slower phones/networks this has been killer) Glad to see the slight change back. Keep up the good work!

I believe it had more with the choice between another year in junior and NHL. I understand what you're saying, but I don't think at the time the AHL was an option. Are they still better off playing Galchenyuk at center and dealing with the growing pains? Maybe, but I'd be more worried about the waiting for him to grow more into his frame and avoid injury. I keep thinking when I see all the injuries the Oilers have had over the last few years and thinking, you take guys from junior that are used to be being a) the most skilled and b) at the very least standard size, and put them up against men in the NHL. When they try to play their normal game, they end up getting crushed. Then everyone says they're "soft" or "injury prone".

Couldn't catch the game as I recently moved to Finland and the time difference is crazy, but what were the line combos for the game? Was Eller with briere and patches??

Who should play on the wing with Pleks?? I don't know, how about...JAGR! The return of Thomas Jagr

I think he's a tad more valuable then Kovalev was when The Pens picked him up. Honestly I's be happy if we could get him for a 2nd round pick, but I doubt the price would be that low.

With all this talk of adding a sniper, am I the only one that would love to see Jagr in this years line up. I know he's 41, but he's UFA at seasons end and we've already made a deal this season with Dallas. I heard earlier that Dallas was trying to sign him to an extension, but lack if news since could lead one to believe that it isn't going as planned. He played with Pleks on the off season and has stated he wanted to play in Montreal at the seasons start. I would love to see Pleks finally be rewarded with his childhood hero as his winger. Plus from all reports last year out of Philly his work ethic is off the charts and is a good role model fir the young guns.
- Comment on NHL makes its latest offer to players public (2012-10-17 13:28:52)
If I'm reading this right though, ff somehow they could get him to retire, it would completely screw over the Rangers. All years of existing SPCs with terms in excess of five (5) years will be accounted for and charged against a team's Cap (at full AAV) regardless of whether or where the Player is playing. In the event any such contract is traded during its term, the related Cap charge will travel with the Player, but only for the year(s) in which the Player remains active and is being paid under his NHL SPC. If, at some subsequent point in time the Player retires or ceases to play and/or receive pay under his NHL SPC, the Cap charge will automatically revert (at full AAV) to the Club that initially entered into the contract for the balance of its term.
- Comment on So what have we got? (2011-10-02 05:02:27)
Question for all you folks. Looking for a site that will show Habs games after they're played. I know NHL Game Center allows you to watch games once they're 2 days old, but was hoping for something a bit quicker. I'm working nights for the next month, so I can't watch the games live and since I'm in a hotel I don't really have access to a pvr. Many thanks
