I can't believe it. Here in Eastern Ontario where we have been getting almost every Habs game this year on one or another of the Rogers stations, all 4 of their sports stations in my cable package are bringing the absolutely meaningless NFL game between 2 teams who are both 2 and 12. Come on guys this is CANADA in DECEMBER. It is Saku night in Canada. Bring the darn game already.

Why would MB even consider trading Eller? He is one of the better face off guys in the league this year, plays with heart, pots some good goals, is big, isn't afraid of anything, is young, fits in well with his team mates and from my perspective bleeds tri-colour. When he comes back, he needs to play center not on the wing. If someone needs to be moved I'd rather see DD shuffled.

Having had the privilege of watching Hall develop as a minor hockey player and through major junior and knowing the family a little, I can say he would be an asset to any team including our Habs. He has always been very coachable, has a very strong sense of responsibility and I'm sure his parents would love him closer to home. That said, he would indeed require a franchise player in return and while goal scoring needs some improvement on this team, I can't see giving up someone of the caliber of Suban, Patches or dare I say - GULP- Price in return. I am very happy with how the young prospects in the organization are being developed and think the future of the team looks very promising. You never know, MB has made some very shrewd trades recently so maybe he could pull off another one!!!

Bench management. That was one thing that stood out for me tonight. The coaching staff MT especially deserve credit for juggling the lines a few days ago and more importantly playing that new third line effectively especially in the second half of the game. Oh and brilliant goaltending is becoming so common with this team that being outshot more than 2-1 yet winning is the norm. Anyone who thinks that Cary Price isn't the number one contender for the Vezina just hasn't been paying attention.

The first game I played was outdoors on a pad (with boards no less) in Chateauguay Quebec. It wasn't until we moved to Ontario that I got to play indoors.

Heck old guys like me remember playing minor hockey in arenas with the chain link fencing. Used to try and grind guys faces in it.

It is not the fact that a team experiences difficulties it is how they bounce back. This current slump is annoying but let's see how the team responds before calls for the coach's head are made. That said, a poor effort tonight makes the situation more urgent to say the least.
