PAP has looked great with Pleks and Galchenyuk. I wouldn't touch that line until it goes several games without producing. Messing with it right now would be counter-productive.

Should be a great one tonight. All about skill and speed which should make most vey happy. Whoever has more jump and the team that has their star players show up will take this one. I'm surprised it is Sekac and not Moen sitting. Moen really doesn't have the jets to be affective in a game like tonight's. Bournival would have been a better option as well. I think they have to play Moen in order to get a taker. No one will trade for him if he is in the press box. Datsyuk returning is an obvious concern - one of the few players in the NHL that can take over an entire game.

Do you have a legit source or do you just hear voices?

Just watched the Oil beat the Lighting 3-2 on TVA. Drouin`s first NHL game. He never made it on the score sheet but it is easy to see that he is going to be a star. He showed flashes of brilliance. Such sick hands. Flashes similar to what Galchenyuk showed in his first year but Drouin does it at an even faster pace and with more wow factor. And I love Galchenyuk. I`ve been his biggest supporter since we drafted him and he will be a special player for the Habs but I see Drouin as being just a little more special.

He has hit a few already this year and had 2 goals called back as well. He is just having bad luck. The effort has been there and the 3rd line has been fine. If they keep working hard the points will come.

Heads up for all those who don't care about football - TVA is carrying the Sharks/Rangers game starting in 10 minutes.

PAP has been very impressive this year so far. I think the Briere trade has worked out well so far. He has great hockey IQ and is a good passer. He isn't the most fluid skater or the fastest skater but that is OK because Pleks and Chucky are usually on the puck first anyways. PAP is a great fit on that line because of his creativity which Galchenyuk desperately needs in a linemate. He isn't a chip and chase guy. He likes to hold on to the puck and make plays which suits Galchenyuk perfectly and Pleks is benefiting from it as well. In recent years Pleks had pure chip and chase wingers like Gionta, Bourque and even Moen. I think he will have a much better point production season with guys that rather hold possession than constantly chip and chase.

Paul Romanuk (sp) was an absolute pleasure tonight. The best English play by play in a while. Too bad there is no post game analysis.
