- Comment on Habs vs. Kings could be a defensive battle (2013-12-10 12:42:38)
I wonder if the habs will trade murray at some point. I think we're going to see at least 1 of tinordi/pateryn/beaulieu with the big club later this season. bouillon is a ufa too but I see him as a depth guy only. they can get something for murray b4 he gets replaced by tinordi. i lean towards tinordi/pateryn because they're more physical. I think beaulieu can replace diaz next yr.. diaz is too soft & is gonna get eaten alive in the playoffs.

agreed. don't mind mt so much but murray needs to play. without him we're going to see bouillon & diaz unable to win any board battles & the kings will keep it in our zone forever.

interesting that vick got 2 years for dogfighting. at the same time, an nfl wr (his name is on the tip of my tongue) got 30 days for killing someone while drunk driving. says something about our society.

what we saw last nite was a more balanced habs team. I was happy to see that either subban, emelin or murray was on the ice when the bruins tried to make their plays along the boards in our end. they had to keep their heads up for a change & could not dominate physically. no crap after the whistle. no nothing except hockey. eller is a skill/physical force the bruins have no answer for. moen & prust played tough as nails. even parros made life difficult by taking a piece of every bruin he was near. our skill guys weren't subjected to constant thuggery & I believe that has a psychological effect. we have a very good group of skilled players too. plus they all worked hard despite the scheduling. i continue to be impressed with dd. he plays with energy & skill much like Gallagher & bournival. I was worried b4 the season that price's playoff fail might have affected his confidence but he has clearly demonstrated over time that he has his mojo intact. that's huge. I think murray has made a case for starting every game. his game is very aggressive & even intimidating. he pinches in when I expect our d to be backing off & he doesn't fail either. he often punishes someone in the process. he moves to cut plays off b4 they have a chance to develop in the neutral zone. he may not be the fastest guy chasing down an iced puck but the strengths of his game are considerable. he & emelin have greatly reduced a major weakness on our d. we're gonna need those 2 more than ever in the playoffs.

I love having murray on d. he & emelin are able to win the board battles so we don't get pinned in our end forever. murray also nailed a few guys sending them arse over teakettle incl a beauty on kadri. he's like a physical hal gill. by having some force in our lineup, our speed guys can focus on the game & not dodging cheap shots all nite. how many breakaways did we have? penalties should've been called but it's anyone's guess when an actual call will be made in the nhl. there must be an iq maximum of 70 for nhl officials. bournival needs to play. so does bourque. dd was a stud again sat. nite. he's a fighter & wins most of his battles. it's gionta & briere who are the expendable little guys. galchenyuk needs to handle the puck more. we don't get it to him often enough. he's gifted playmaker.

i don't know if we need parros. much rather have murray in. agree bournival is a waste on the 4th line. i think bourque might be a better fit with eller/galchenyuk. bournival would be good too. mt can always put prust or moen in there if things get too rough although i'd expect our dmen to intervene. we stood around in our own end a bit last nite & it cost us. pls don't have georges & diaz paired again. they lose every battle on the boards & can get pinned in our end. we gotta use our speed on the slow t.o. def..

hey markov had a good game & buffalo did everything they could to take subban out of the equation. that left markov open & even Gallagher on his goal as the buff fwds cheated up. markov is not better than subban. period. nevertheless, markov is a keeper & they should resign him. dd played another good game & the hounds have stopped braying for his blood. he was playing good during his slump too. now gionta is in a slump but he's produced b4 so maybe we need some patience. briere, on the other hand, is virtually invisible & came here after he was bought out. ugh. he looks like he's done. I have a feeling that tinordi &/or pateryn will be in mtl b4 the end of the season.
- Comment on Habs’ Parros won’t play, but Murray will against Sabres (2013-11-27 16:04:12)
this is horrible. gov't officials are trying to cya as usual. avoid accountability at all costs. I hope a brilliant light is shone on this. the cockroaches will scatter then. does gov't do anything well?
