Yes, and the Ducks just got 1/20 faster. I would like to remind everyone at this point that Sekac will not be rejoining the Canadiens this season; please get over it.

I thought we looked tired and uninterested. Rest and re-focus, try to pull a win or two out West, and we're back in the pink.

I would have been just as happy if Bergen did nothing. But he added some depth where it will be needed, giving us a better shot at a deeper playoff run.

Excellent post, and spot-on analysis. No need to mess with the core; GMMB has given the team more options on the third and fourth lines, which are very important to playoff success. If we stay healthy, if the top two lines continue to produce and if these trades generate some more offense from the bottom six, we can go far.

Based on your assessment of each player, why would we trade trade any of those guys? They sound great! I want them on my team.

Tinordi's played only a handful of games with the big club; if I'm GMMB, I'm not looking to trade him, but play him more, and help him along his path. Those hesitant passes caused a lot of trouble, and it would have been worse if we were playing against a better team, but given more experience, I think he'll round out into an excellent defenceman. I wish the Eller trade talk would go away; DLR doesn't make Eller expendable, it makes Eller more valuable, as I see it, because now we have Lars and Lars 2.0. I think come playoff time, everyone will be happy that Eller is with the team, and DLR will have had a valuable lesson in how to be a playoff beast.

Didn't LA win their first Cup with a crappy PP?

We are now 1-0 in the post-Sekac era!

A strong game by so many players. Prust, DLR and N8 are unsung heroes of this game for me. Nice for once that somebody not named Pacioretty scored.
