    There is a difference between arrogance and confidence. PK is very confident player. Anybody that's ever played any sport will attest that elite players always bring out the best from the rest of the team. Montreals' success will depend on PK, Pricey, and the rest of the young guns. They WILL be Stanley Cup contenders for a long time if they stay healthy. Hab haters will have a different view because they don't like to see them win. Guess what! They'll hate us even more now that we have our core players locked in for the next few years. SCREW THEM!!! --------------------------------- Claude Provost Rocked!

    Big kudos to the Tokar. He was just as good stopping the puck as Pricey, The difference? He does not play the puck as well as Price. Price can headman the puck across the blueline. Tokar didn't. Hope the goalie coach can work with him in the off-season. He will be a number 1 one day he can be a little more aggressive outside the crease. And that my Hab friends, is my last post for the year. Hope we get further next year! --------------------------------- Claude Provost Rocked!

    Dryden was unbelievable! Price is just as good this year IMO. Just looked up the roster for !970-71. Does this ever bring back good memories! Belliveau, the Road Runner, Dryden, Fergy, Lemaire, the Pocket, the Mahovlich brothers, Savard, and JC Trembley amongst others. ___________________ Claude Provost Rocked!

    This group sometimes get locked in to all the stats from the west teams. Guess what folks, we only have to worry about one of those teams, be it Chicago, or St Louis, or LA. We can win our conference. It won't be pretty, but there is not one team we can't beat in the east. And then, we can concentrate on an extended game plan for the finals. Remember, playoffs morphs into something different than regular season games. Quite evident if you remember Dryden's performance against the booooins to Patty Roy's '86 and '93 performances. I have been fair with our team all year, and to be honest, I didn't think we could go very far in the playoffs, but I'm having second thoughts. This could be our year if the cards fall in our favor. Just sayin.... --------------------------------- Claude Provost Rocked!
  • Comment on Price takes part in full practice, but still listed as day-to-day (with video) (2014-03-15 10:55:02)
    With all the talk about the cap being around the 70 million level, why wouldn't the league pro rate the canadien dollar to the american dollars? I don't think that's been a topic of conversation on the blog. Any comments? I really puts a big disavantage on canadian teams. Or does it already exist? --------------------------------- Claude Provost Rocked!

    Referee Ghislain Hebert is from New Brunswick, not Quebec. There is another Hebert refereering in the league, also from New Brunswick, but they are not related. Just sayin... --------------------------------- Claude Provost Rocked!

    If you understand anything about coaching, the following is true. "You practice to learn the game. You gain experience by playing the game". What I saw last night makes me wonder what the players do during practice, because they surely don't seem to have the right regime going on. They have looked disorganized the last few games and the best we can hope for is a shot at the playoffs. This team is going nowhere with the coaching staff. MT was let go from Pittsburg for a reason. I believe it's both a lack of motivational skills and a lack of game scenerio adaptability which is key in any successful organization. Just saying... --------------------------------- Claude Provost Rocked!

    Here a thought. PK is a defensive liability as we all know (althought not everyone agrees). That giveaway to Sutter will attest to that. Why don't we try PK up front? He likes to move in the offensive zone and with the right line, it could be a good experience for all. You could always use him at the point on the powerplay. What do you think? --------------------------------- Claude Provost Rocked!

    PJ Stock called him the second coming of Hal Gill. I agree. Certainly not the fastest, but very effective during the PK. I like him. --------------------------------- Claude Provost Rocked!
