- Comment on Habs return home, won’t practise until Tuesday (2014-03-09 22:29:22)
I never believed Eller was alive.It was a fair trade now that we look at it after all these years. We obtained poor value (Eller) for a goalie nobody wants anymore (Halak).

Right now the worst is Gallant's PP. Time to find a worthy assistant coach.

A goalie preferably. pK can do the rest.

It is mostly the forwards who have problems. Fire the forward assistant coach, Gallant.

Hey Garbo, I know a coach who took his team from the 3rd rank in their conference 4 years ago down to 5th, then 7th, then they moved the team in a weaker conference and they are still at 7th. Fire Babcock, he is dragging that team down. ;-)

I am not sure a regular season game against a divisional opponent is the best timing to see what a kid can do.
- Comment on Liveblog: Game 60 – Detroit dominates, wins 2-1 in OT (2014-02-26 19:20:24)
That's why I see the Habs being a contender in 3 years when four rearguards (PK, Beaulieu, Tinordi and Pateryn) are leading the way supported with the likes of Gorges and another UFA. Price will still be the dominant goalie that we know and some young guns will be leading the way upfront starting with Gallagher, Galchenyuk, Eller and Pacioretty.

But all the teams in the East would hate to face us because of Price, the same way Halak led that team to the conference finals.
- Comment on Habs’ Subban paired with Hamhuis at first Team Canada practice (2014-02-10 18:26:10)
I'm already praying that they misuse him and he comes back from the Olympics with something to prove, like another Norris or a cup to prove the world wrong.
- Comment on Weise will make Habs debut vs. Flames; White returns to lineup (2014-02-04 16:22:37)
But I doubt Molson would be thrilled. With the loonie tanking below 90¢, many Canadian teams are bound to lose 5 million this year. That's one round of playoff.
