u have a strong bias, timo. dd had a very strong game. he was always on the puck & created a lot of chances. I like big power guys too but dd is a real asset to this team. I think he's the best center we have (until galchenyuk moves there).

ur right but I suspect that other teams are having the same troubles early on too. at least we're less sloppy than they are so far.

he very nearly spelled his name correctly in the sand with a stick.

that's how I feel too. lucic is a hothead. it's an adolescent quality that is a vice & requires some maturity to overcome. it's hurting him too. he doesn't intimidate anyone & he's prone to losing control & costing his team. montreal demands discipline & places a high priority on character. the whole bruins organization is classless & has been for as long as I remember.

it's maddening to watch the number of turnovers we commit. be nice if we could just cut out the stupid mistakes. very sloppy game with some awful, sloppy goals. it also seemed like our forwards were too far up ice on many occasions & our dmen's passes were picked off. maybe it's just because it's early in the season. the bruins last goal that was kicked in was also offside. brutal. there should be a provision for a coach's challenge.

the real revelation this season has been the play of galchenyuk. he's their best fwd.. he's a lot more confident. he's winning nearly all his board battles in a convincing way where he winds up making a play with the puck. he's making some elite moves with the puck & he's showing gifted vision & playmaking ability. he's also been going to the net a lot more. he's thriving in the dirty areas as well as in open ice. if he stays healthy, he's going to have a breakout year. I think he meshes well with pleks because pleks is not much of a playmaking ctr. but he's a gifted shooter. galchenyuk is a playmaker tho & when is the last time pleks has played with one? I think dd & max need a big winger like sekac to play with. maybe pa works but I'd put Gallagher with eller & bourque. we don't need the liability that 2 smurfs on the same line create. will weaver stop getting caught out of position & causing goals against us? 3 games in a row now. tinordi played a really solid game last nite. markov too. once our def gels, this team will be a real force.

agreed. I thought he played well. if anyone got caught out of position it was markov.

habs got better as the game went on & deserved the win. gilbert played very well. markov continues to get caught out of position. leafs got some lucky bounces. leafs had an awful time with our 1st line whereas kessel's line was invisible. pleks's line got stronger as the game wore on too. subban is a beast. the asst captains did all our scoring. this team is going to be awesome when it gets rolling.

maybe not. look at Edmonton. it's tougher to get a team that wins.
