    He was not signed to rack up points, he was given that contract to do exactly what he does best: play key defensive minutes, penalty kill, block shots, and be a leader in the room. Pretty decent credentials for a captain, at this point I don't really see a better option. Tinordi has more potential but atm Gorges is the better option for a stay at home defenseman.

    That's a terrible comment, he's a guy who brings a lot to the table, plays big minutes, is always in the top 2 or 3 in blocked shots in the nhl and almost never gets hurt. Even when he is hurt as we've seen with this latest injury, he still battles through it and managed to play a few games with a busted hand, he would make a great captain in my mind. Maybe he's not offensively inclined, but he still manages around 15-20 points a season. He is a warrior and I would love to see him as our captain next year. JY - I support Carey Price
  • Comment on Liveblog: Game 21 – A first since 1967 : Rangers shut out Canadiens in Montreal (2013-11-16 16:53:10)
    A few notes, I hope nobody expects a huge game out of emelin tonight, he needs to ease his transition back into the lineup. I think Murray should sit, yes Boullion is a whopping -10 but I think it's mostly due to playing with the Ogre over the past while. DD should sit, if he cannot hit or stir the pot playing on the 4th line. why put him in the lineup. Pacioretty needs to start scoring some goals, look for him to break the curse tonight.

    The Habs really need to white knuckle it through this stretch of about 10 games or so, no room for a period off, hopefully the rookies can actually contribute, looking for holland to bring a much needed spark. Carey Price needs to bail us out more than ever, and guys need to step up, aka desharnais, bourque, and gionta. Gonna be an interesting few weeks. JY - I support Carey Price
  • Comment on Liveblog: Game 8: Four-game win streak ends with 2-1 loss to Nashville (2013-10-19 22:22:14)
    A few notes: - Was not our best game, although we deserved a better fate. Refs we're brutal and have been all season need to get their shit together - Injuries will kill us this season, tn we lost 2 plus pacioretty, murray emelin most importantly - Price was excellent again although could have made that last save - The EGG line was our best again, Moen sucks and needs to be moved out of town - MB may wanna look to signing Simon Gagne if briere and prust are out long term....

    Johnny O Chill out, one of our best defencemen in terms of blocking shots and taking anything for his teammates, he's a class act player and not the reason we lost tn. JY - I support Carey Price
  • Comment on Budaj will get start against Oilers (2013-10-10 13:49:18)
    A few notes: Habs NEED a win tonight. Going into Vancouver having lost to Calgary and Edmonton is not a good place to be. While its early with the new conferences and wild card playoff berths every game is monumental. Desharnais, Briere, the Plekanec line, and Gorges need bounce back games. Budaj better not drop the ball in net, we can't afford that. JY - I support Carey Price
  • Comment on Liveblog: Game 3: Calgary jinx continues, Flames win 3-2 (2013-10-10 00:26:08)
    No way! Price is a top 5 goalie when our defense is healthy and playing properly, he made 3 gave saving stops tonight that could have made the game out of reach. You're right this team hasn't been prepared to play in west for 20 years and it continued tn our best players didn't come to play. JY - I support Carey Price

    A few notes: Desharnais better pick it up soon, pretty bad contact for a guy who's invisible against a big hardworking team. Same goes for Briere, although I'll give him a pass seeing as he's new. Price played well, the defense were not physical enough. We looked pretty sluggish for most of the game better turn it around tmr in edmonton. Not even gonna get into the Subban penalty, seeing as we did not deserve to be in that game whatsoever.
