Anyone else feel worried about this first round matchup with Tampa? They remind me a lot of the Ottawa team from last year that we lost to in 5 games...a goalie that is hot and having the best season of his career (similar to Anderson last year), opportunistic scoring, and extremely disciplined/well coached. So sick of losing in the first round - I want the cup!!!

Super dumb question that Im hoping someone can answer. Does the preliminary round count? Or is that another word for exhibition? Im assuming it is the same format as the world cup where the top 2 from each group move on, but then what is the "qualification playoff" for then? Just confirming.

Can anyone explain to me why people are complaining about Galchenyuk? He is 3rd on our team in scoring (2nd of forwards) at 19 years old with less 15 mins of TOI!!!! That is absurd. He is also only -1. Not sure where the negativity is coming from. Now where I do think that some criticism is warranted is his decision to not shoot more. I know that he has always been considered a playmaker as opposed to a goal scorer, but last night he had a couple of great chances where I think he should have shot. Isnt he considered to have the 2nd or 3rd best wrist shot on the team behind Patches and Bourque? I think Therrien should encourage him to shoot more.

Is it really ridiculous though? I love PK and I wouldnt trade him for the world, but his argument is somewhat logical (I guess). But at the end of the day, Mackinnon is only 19 and although he could turn out to be a superstar forward that the Habs have desperately craved over the last 2 decades, it is too much of a risk. But yes I agree, this rumor is most likely not true.

Well folks, this rumor just came out of left field???? Mackinnon for PK? http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Eklund/SoDoes-PK-Subban-for-Nathan-MacKinnon-Make-Any-Sense/1/56205

Mr. Boone, Completely agree with your assessment and the fact that it is somewhat of a surprise, especially with the way we were playing at the beginning of the season. BUT not sure what you meant by this was supposed to be a "rebuilding" year? I consider teams like Florida and Calgary that have no good players 25+ but a ton of young up and comers, not the Habs that have a good mix of vets ( pleks, gio, markov) and soon to be greats (EGG). We have three great lines, a better than average defensive corps, and a great goalie tandem. Anyway, just wanted some clarification from you or anyone else. Thanks! And what a game last night!

Question for you all: All this talk about PK and Carey making Team Canada, what do you guys think the chances of Max Pac and Chucky making Team USA? Right now, I would say that Max Pac is not a lock but close to it, and Chucky is a long shot. What are your thoughts?

Whats the likelihood that we can actually get Mikhail Grigorenko? Mock drafts have us 2nd overall, and I think that it would be sweet to get him considering how long we have been waiting to get a big talented center.

Is Patch playing tonight?

What does everybody think about Pacioretty? I am not talking about right now because he clearly has been not playing well and is in a rut which he will bounce back from. I am talking more long term within this organization. I am asking because I love his game, but I literally go back and forth each day on whether or not he will be a GREAT player someday (dont forget he only just turned 23). Just wanted to get peoples opinions.
