Yeah, but it's against the Oilers so it doesn't really count.

I think it's 10. They keep inventing new ways to lose, up 1-0 get a power play and give up 2 shorthanded goals on the same PP. You can't make this stuff up. They now have the worst record in the league. Again!!

It's sad to see what's happening in Edmonton, went to the Devil's game on Friday night and the compete level is just not there on a consistent basis, the players have become used to losing which is a very bad thing. I just don't see a trade turning things around for the Oilers, changes have to come at the top. Edmonton's a great hockey town and the fans there deserve better. I know some on this board would hate (and I understand it) to see the Oilers get the #1 pick again. Well at least it's better than a team in Montreal's division getting it (ie. Toronto, heaven forbid!) I would like to see David Perron here as he plays with a ton of grit but David Desharnais is not what the Oilers need unfortunately.

Sure, he will help the Habs with their scoring problems.

On the plus side a record of 8-4-1 is pretty good! On the negative side their goal differential is 2nd worst of any team in the Atlantic division. That's assuming you include Buffalo as a team, if you don't include them they have the worst. No time to panic but definitely cause for concern as they need to play a lot better.

It's the biggest immediate issue for Hab fans and the amount of the contract will determine a lot regarding the flexibility MB has going forward. It's a big issue! What else are we going to talk about right now regarding the Habs? It's priority #1

Agreed, that seems like a ridiculous amount of money to spend. What if he didn't make it? What did you give up? Money to spend on an education?

Without question d), 8 years at a minimum of 8 million per year. No way they are going to arbitration unless Meehan is asking for a ridiculous contract.

Be strong Alex! So nice that Ian and many other Hab fans were able to help out. I am very happy that things are progressing in a positive direction for you.

I hope they are right, 8 or less for a long term contract and I am a happy man.
