    Good point - but the top eight a the top puck moving defense men and they get top minutes, so it would stand to reason that there would be more risk in their game... I thought and hoped, that MT doesn't become so focused on D that he stifles the creativity of the offence - its building, slowly, but its getting better...tighten up without taking away the offence...that in my opinion is the next step.

    I seem to remember last year the King had a horrible start, the Rangs were doomed and the papers, pundits and armchair quarterbacks were all chicken littles... The Habs won 3 of 4 and how they won 'em, in my opinion, because its the start of the season is moot. I will stick by that old Price quote from a while ago and chill! Sloppy play, terrible PP, not so bad PK...indicative of new players, younger (like we all wanted) and teambuilding...I expect losses (not 7-1) but its early and if this was nearing April and the Habs were slipping down the standings to a non play-off position then I would press the panic button. Right now, after two wins, the Leafs are rescheduling the parade and now everyone (including the talking heads) are seeing play-offs... Tomorrow is Boston and they will come out swingin...I say, lets give 'em another loss and mostly I say GHG!!!

  • Comment on ‘I feel like it’s my home,’ Habs’ Markov says about Montreal (2014-06-26 08:07:23)
    ...for me, reading Markov comments it makes me proud to think of how loyal he is to the team and city. Plus it sends a message to the rest of the hockey world that playing in Montreal isn't that bad and that you will be treated fairly by management...to me the signing was more about sending a message then the dollars it represented. Have a good day everyone.

  • Comment on Habs sign Weise to two-year contract (2014-06-18 11:16:27)
    That's what I was thinking when Doughty's error, I forget which game, ended up a being a scoring chance (and goal) for the rangers...later he skated in scored (much like PK's breakaway goal)..and PK is getting better every year "If I knew the answer to that I'd bet $10,000 on the game and retire from coaching." —Montreal Canadiens coach Toe Blake after being asked if his team would win an upcoming game

    http://www.thescore.com/#/nhl/news/521759 more PK contractual speculation...I guess the question is - is he worth more the Pietrangelo? Doughty?

  • Comment on HI/O Show: Habs will face more pressure next season (2014-06-10 07:08:44)
    The only blow out was game 1...the rest could've went either way and if Price played it would've been a confidence boost just like when the King is on his game is for the Rangers...
