- Comment on Carey Price will start in Buffalo; Habs’ power play gets a new look (2014-11-27 19:44:28)
No offense, but I'm tired of people asking this question as if they are on to something that most don't see. Desharnais gets #1 PP unit time and all of the most favorable offensive zone starts. Just by that alone, he is occupying the spot of the #1 offensive center. If you take that into consideration, you will easily see why people are not happy with him even if he does produce 40-50 pts. When you are given those prime opportunities, there is no excuse not to produce BIG numbers.

I don't think anyone questions Subban's dedication, he just hasn't played up to his potential consistently this season. Also, the expectations have been raised now that he is a 'veteran', wearing the A, and signed to a monster contract.

Those are some pretty awful stats posted by Arpon Basu. Bottom third in the league in so many key aspects, it's amazing how their record is not at all a reflection of that. Still it makes you wonder what direction this team is headed.

I also noticed this and I agree, it's a sham. The NHL really sold everyone down the river with this Rogers deal. The broadcast has been terrible and the amount of advertising is shameful. (But what can you expect with the ransom they paid to steal the rights away from Bell).

Which makes you wonder what would happen were he to get injured again...

Actually, the majority of the world's servers run on Linux. :)
- Comment on No lineup changes expected for Habs vs. Avalanche (2014-10-18 04:16:59)
Met him at a bar once. Seemed pretty down to earth. Can't see why anyone would be slamming him. He's a proud Montrealer and Habs fan!
- Comment on Habs will have plenty to work on at practice (2014-10-15 12:11:07)
I hope the HIO team is listening...

The Devils roster fascinates me. I've never seen so many veteran free agents assembled on one team.
