Now that's a good idea. The late late late game.

Hear, hear! WTF is that? Did the person who made the schedule ever even watch a hockey game? 12:30 pm? Are they trying to deliberatey pi** off the entire province of Quebec? And while I'm at it, why, two days before supposed playoff matchup, is the day and time of the game only being revealed via an indirect 'inside' source? Who runs this league?

Agreeing here about Cooke. Rather I think the league in general is a joke when it comes to protecting players, or pardoning criminals. Maybe criminals is a strong word, but you can do things in hockey that get five minutes that would get you five years in the real world. Like the Seabrook hit on Backes. Clear intent to injure in my opinioin. Intent to injure should come with an automatic 50, yes 50 game suspension.

Check out Pacioretty at number 5. And compare his +/- to Ovechkin. http://www.hockey-reference.com/play-index/psl_finder.cgi?request=1&match=combined&year_min=2012&year_max=2014&season_start=1&season_end=-1&age_min=0&age_max=99&birth_country=&franch_id=&is_active=&is_hof=&pos=S&handed=&c1stat=&c1comp=gt&c1val=&c2stat=&c2comp=gt&c2val=&c3stat=&c3comp=gt&c3val=&c4stat=&c4comp=gt&c4val=&order_by=goals

Is that Murray saying, you do that to Markhov and that's what you get?

The CBC should look at firing Bob Cole – on a few occasions last night he slipped up and showed some respect and even admiration for the Habs. And while I’m here… “trade Markhov, trade Eller, trade Desharnais…” remind me not to share a bunker with Habs fans after an apocalypse, they’ll be voting for cannibalism when there’s still rice and beans in the larder.

re: Markov. he hasn't played well the last few games. I believe it is true that he gets tired. Am I naive to suggest not making him play every effin' game? Could we not let one of the kids come up from hamilton every now and then to give him some time off? So we would have one of the leagues best defenceman, that he his when he has his legs? Is there some code about this?

For what it's worth, at this point..... The EGG line started the year on fire, three kids on a rebuilding team that is lighting it up. The coach splits up the line. Some weeks ago Markov/Subban were being hailed all over as the best defensive tandem in the NHL. The coach splits them up. Then line juggling to the point where it's pointless to even try to keep track of who is playing with who. How are players supposed to develop a game like that? Bourque game after game doing nothing, but getting the ice time. Bournival, one of the young players who is to be part of 'the future', sitting on the bench. Eller not playing center since....when? Briere, who got dumped for a reason by Philly, logging the minutes, doing nothing, for why? Now it looks like the players are not liking each other. When that happens, it is a lack of leadership from the boss (coach). I don't coach, but I have employees. When shit falls apart, it is my fault. When someone does what Gorges does in the pre-game clip it creates resentment. If the coach was a good leader, that b.s. would not be happening. Just when Pirce was really coming into form, starting to make the highlight reel saves on top of his good positional play.....things fall apart. It's broken. It's time.
