I'm hoping vanek bumps gio off pleks's line. our 2nd line should have some size now. we'll see 2nite.

I think max's line will be kept intact. vanek will bump gio to eller's line. that's because galchenyuk is our 2nd best playmaker already & pleks & vanek will need him. vanek also gives that line some size. don't discount bourque. he was a stud in last yr's playoffs. anyone griping about Chicago's bickell this yr? some guys u need to get u thru the playoffs & big guys who can score are valuable. 4th line of prust, white & weise/moen/briere/bournival. u can't take a nite off when u've got 3 guys waiting to take ur spot. mb must be confident we can resign markov. hope so. I can't remember having such a talented lineup for a long time.
- Comment on Habs acquire defenceman Weaver from Panthers; Price back on ice (2014-03-05 11:40:28)
agreed. dd is a keeper. he's small but he's surprisingly effective along the boards because he's strong & has a low center of gravity. it's ok to have 1 or 2 smallish guys up front if they produce - & dd has produced. he's our best playmaker. you have to be blind (or stupid) not to see it. gio & briere can be moved. gio is a ufa but can still play - I hope he goes today. it'd be nice if Gallagher could play on a diff line so we don't have 2 small guys on the same line.

interesting move. I also think tinordi will be sent down now. idk much about weaver so i'll reserve judgement but not liking his 185 lbs.. I doubt georges gets traded. he's a good dman except for his lack of physicality. be nice to upgrade that. murray should be resigned too. he's been great for us this yr.. we need a guy who wins all his indiv battles & that other teams fear physically. eller should not be traded. last time we gave up on a big, young fwd his name was leclair. that was an awful deal. eller now looks much better than leclair did. no trading any of our young guys pls! don't know if we could part with gio for a pick & maybe give up a pick or 2 for a bigger fwd. - one with a pulse (unlike penner). no rentals pls..

my gosh. subban makes 1 mistake & guys think he can't play. deteriorating play?? what r u smoking to think that? we're lucky to have him & every other gm in the league would die to have him. he's young & oozes ability & he produces. he's a very rare find & u don't trade those guys ever. he's the best habs dman since chelios & robinson. sometimes I wonder how drunk some of these posters are when they watch the games. maybe even drunk when posting. thank goodness mb is patient & in possession of his sanity.

we don't KNOW anything. subban is an elite talent. he's young. anyone who trades him ought to be shot.

I don't understand the impatient types who are sour on eller. he's really young still & reminds me of john leclair b4 we treaded him. didn't work out too well for us did it? we'd be nuts to move eller. I also think dd is a keeper. he's also young & is our best playmaker. he's put up some nice numbers since his slow start. he works hard & plays with energy. reminds me of yoda for some reason. nobody was complaining about his points & winning goal vs. the pens. galchenyuk is our 2nd best playmaker but he has the whole package. I've been sour on gio & briere but both have been playing much better recently. prob is they're both older & overpaid. we just can't have so many small guys & expect to win. right now we need them because we don't have much depth. same with georges. he's undersized but we need him until the young guns step up. I'd keep markov unless we can't sign him. I'd be ok with 3 years. he's still very good & lots of older dmen like timmonen & what's his face from Detroit have had success. I can't see mb making any moves of consequence other than for depth unless gio & markov can't be signed.
- Comment on Price leaves Habs’ morning skate early; will miss at least two games (2014-02-26 13:11:36)
markov is a very good dman & still great on the pp. I think we could sign him for 3 yrs & be better off for it. I'd like to see georges moved next yr tho. you can't have an undersized dman who doesn't score & expect to win. I like beaulieu (be better if he muscled up) & tinordi but I think pateryn is the most complete prospect of the 3 as I've watched over the past 2 seasons. I think all 3 will make it. the question is when. that has to be a factor too. McCarron isn't a wasted pick. really big guys like him take a bit longer to develop that's all. I think he has huge potential. connor crisp too. when the playoffs come around, those big guys are worth their weight in gold. we're all gonna love murray on d too when we experience the complete incompetence of nhl refs once again in april. he wins his battles & clears the puck. if we're going to be playing a conservative style, then we need some earth movers on our blue line. team Canada didn't want any small guys at all. I think mb is right when he calls for balance.
