A few reflections on last night: 1-Does Markov have the flu? 2- PK seems tradeable after all. If he's asking for 8 million$ that'll make it easy. He's not liked anywhere (although I don't understand the booing), he's erratic, not good on defense. Not a plus for the team that's for sure. 3-Bouillon, despite the comments of the posters here, was one of the steadiest and fault-free players. That's why he is there. Imagine Tinordi? with Subban all over the place and Markov playing poorly? 4- Why is Prust on the 2nd line? He's an energy guy, a team guy, but can't be a top six, especially just coming back from (another) injury. Why not move him to 4th line and give Brière a chance as a top six. 5-Love D.D: a great hockey player. 6-Nice to play against a team which is NOT dirty. 7-My God MTL's defense is vulnerable. So many poor decisions. 8- How are we still testing new lines in the playoffs?

Another mystery to me concerning PK: why does he get booed in so many rinks?

Time to Tank for sure. All the better teams in the NHL have done so, the one exception being Bruins which is extremely well managed. Gionta, Diaz, Gorges for not much. Maybe Eller can get a good price: He has always been overrated on this site (good skills and size but no hockey sense, the opposite of DD). Plekanec and Markov need to be Canadiens till the end of their carreer: they are the spirit of the Habs.

Just dreaming: Subban has this thought (but does not mention it to his agent): well I'm going to play my best hockey years in MTL. I'm sure to make 50 million dollars (i.e in one year I will make what Dr Mulder made in his career approx). Winning the Stanley Cup is definitely what I wish THEREFORE I will sign for 7yrs at 7 mill so that MY team can sign other decent players...

There is absolutely no reason to believe the Canadiens will be contenders this year. Who was added in the off season? Murray, Parros and Brière? Sorry. The defence is their biggest weakness, I guess although obviously size up front...wow a LOT of things need to be fixed. It'll take time and we've been saying that for YEARS. As for a deal with Edmonton: maybe David Perron would be an easier target? Geez they have a lot of talent up front.
