    Is it "Just Me" or did you miss the context of my point. Simply that Yak wouldn't fit into the system and therefore it won't happen. So you are basically arguing my point. Secondly, Bergevin's comments about not sacrificing the future......ok that was when our team wasn't complete. We aren't there yet, but we're getting much closer. This means that moves that help the team short term but may hurt long term are not far off... Win with class...

    I love the idea of Yak playing with Galchenyuk again...who knows what chemistry they might be able to regain. And for sure it would be a risk as I shudder what we'd have to give up to get him. However, I think the supporters of this idea are missing one major point - could you imagine him trying to fit into Therrien's system? Can you imagine how much ice time this guy would get if he sat in the Habs dressing room and said he doesn't back-check? He'd find himself in the press box more often than not. Right here, right now...I just don't see it being a good fit. I do however think he'll turn things around with another team though. Win with class...

    Not surprisingly, looks like the loss to Montreal completely sent the Sens off the tracks. Love it. The only real reason for their success last year was super-human goaltending. Go habs Win with class...
  • Comment on Liveblog: Senators spank Canadiens 6-1, take series lead (2013-05-05 23:25:29)
    Ok folks, everyone take a breath. A playoff series is like match play in golf. You can triple bogey a hole and your opponent birdies, but you're only down one hole. This is the same. There were no positives to take out of the game other than the incredible (though unfortunately uncontrolled) emotion our team showed even when the game was out of hand. And we can thank the walrus and the kid who hot dogged his celebration on the 6th goal for the plenty of fuel to light our motivational fire. Have faith folks. Maybe trading every player who isn't playing their best is a bit hasty. THE FOURTH GAME IS ALWAYS THE MOST IMPORTANT GAME OF THE SERIES. I predict a bounce-back game.....we can even it up and win back home ice. We just have to forget about it and move on with our chins up! Win with class...

    Washington gets third no matter what. Only series that we know right now....was vs rangers. Should be a great one. That dumb rule will be eliminated next year (well at least down to two divisions). Win with class...

    If the lottery pick goes to Florida and everything plays out as the standings show now, Nashville is fourth last (2nd rounder for Kostitsyn) and Calgary is 6th last (2nd rounder for Cammeleri). LOVING THOSE TRADES NOW IN SUCH A DEEP DRAFT! Great job tonight boys. Win with class...
  • Comment on Video: One more step as Habs clinch home ice (2013-04-26 09:08:41)
    Well...baby steps. The last 1.5 games have shown that the Habs haven't completely forgotten the recipe for what proved successful for them this year. The third period, while I'll admit there were a few lucky goals, showed way more urgency than we've been seeing lately. Lots of battles won for loose pucks, etc. Boullion has been brutal lately...really bad. Desharnais has truly lost his game. He can't even make a simple pass these days and he always gives up possession when we're on the pp. We've got to take him off the pp...it's killing us. The kids are playing well for sure - at least the effort is there. But isn't it concerning that we're not seeing some of the veterans showing the kind of effort that is required at this time of year? It shouldn't be the rookies who are leading the charge. Great to see Carey get back to his dominant self. Prust needs to rest to heal up. If my math is correct, any kind of win in TO matched with any Boston regulation loss out of their next two gets us first in the NE. I'm pretty sure we'd win the tiebreak (is it head to head record after ROW?) GO HABS GO! Win with class...

    Is there a chance Ryan White has played his last game as a Hab? Three strikes and you're out? He continues to hurt the team and show he's incapable of learning. I'm guessing Blunden in the playoffs when we need a bit more sandpaper. Win with class...

    Anyone else salivating at Calgary's plunge down the standings? That second round pick in the Cammelleri trade is looking pretty juicy!! Win with class...
