Don't get me wrong, I love P.K. but he drives me crazy with some of the penalties he takes. Are some of his penalties undeserved, probably, but this is true for almost all players. The refs aren't perfect and we all tend to look at the game from our own team's point of view. I sincerely hope that his race has nothing to do with the way the refs conduct their approach to the game. Having said that, maybe some refs are prejudice, I honestly cannot say one way or the other. I think that P.K. does deserve many/most of the penalties that he gets and I'm relatively sure that this is an area where he could improve his game. One "for instance", why does he have to give the opposing forward one more shot in the back or cross check, once he has taken him out of the play? We have all seen him do this many, many times. He gets called for it so why does he continue doing this?

Ronn, when you come right down to the nitty-gritty, it doesn't really matter what the power play is doing as long as the team is winning. If they are not winning, then one must take a look at all factors including the PP. As far as I know, the Habs are doing quite well right now.

That was a really tough call. I have mixed emotions about these calls because on one hand I think that the goalies need much more protection from this "crashing the net" business but on the other hand, I hate to see a good goal disallowed because a guy had his foot in the crease. The refs have a difficult job and certainly have to stop or reduce big forwards from smashing into goaltenders. Your opinion on this particular call will be based on the colour of the jersey you are wearing as it really could have gone one way or the other.

I'm not sure if anyone has mentionned this but I was surprised to see how the Habs were just leaving Chara alone in front of the net much of last night. This morning Dave Morissette explained that Price had requested that the defence should let him handle Chara. Price felt that big Chara plus a defenceman or two presented a much more difficult screen so he wanted the D to go about playing their game and not trying to move Chara from in front. Interesting.

AMEN !!!!!!!!!!!! I thought that it was JUST ME (sorry I couldn't pass up the chance to say that) but I am having a heck of a time figuring out how to find the latest page/article. In addition, the writing seems to somehow be mixed on top of pictures and almost impossible to read.

The people in the good seats have private lounges under the seating area in the ACC. A friend went to a game there last year and said that very few people actually go back to their seats after the intermissions. They prefer to sit in the lounge, drink, and maybe watch the game on TV screens. He wanted to go back to watch the game and had a hard time convincing the other people that is why they were there. Since he told me about this, I have noticed all of the empty seats in the ACC at the start of the 2nd and 3rd periods.

I have got to agree fully on #3. Budaj must have been very upset last year when he didn't get to play after Price was injured. I really felt bad for him at the time.

My parents knew Howie Morenz and visited him in the hospital after he was injured. I wish that my dad was still alive so that I could ask him more about Morenz.

I think that the "Rogering" has already begun with these ads on TV featuring Mark Messier telling us that we can watch our favorite team anywhere we go for only $199.99. I can't wait until they bring back a glowing puck or some other gimmick.
