Solid trade today! Vanek gives us many options and he will bring the best out of players who have not been playing too well this year. Even if he does not sign with us, I am sure MB will sign someone else of good caliber. I hope he does stay though. This trade is a confidence booster to the team and fans:) I still worry about MT's philosophy. I hope that Tim recovers fully! I feel for his parents:(

Great idea having a coach like Haley. My Dad said years ago Montreal should hire Melody Davidson because "the guys would either break their b@lls for her or she would break their b@lls for not doing so." lol

If the Habs continue this play, by the end of the week, I would believe there will be a couple of trades! Pittsburgh has a solid team. This is a team that could make life miserable for any of the west teams.

I mentioned last week of placing a defenceman in front of the net like Bowman did in the 70's. Good idea to use Prust in front of the net and Subban playing as a forward, could be like a Cammy or Kovy along the boards for a shot during a PP. I compare the teams that won a Cup to ours and in the 70's there were two "small" players on the team: the Roadrunner and the Pocket. One was too fast and the other played large. Wow, were we blessed with Bowman and Pollock's hockey IQ!

The game last night brought a smile and high fiving to the family:) Parros parking himself in front of the net reminded me of when Bowman would place one of the big three in front of the net during a PP. Not saying Parros is like one of the big three or MT is a Bowman but it sures helps having someone screen the opposing goalie. I thought during our ineffective PP to place Subban as a forward and Plekker on the point...perhaps in the playoffs? I feel much better compared to the Philly game! Interesting a few of you wondering about our identity. I do not think we are a grinding team. We do need another power forward before the playoffs.

I mentioned a couple of months ago that I feared Subban may leave like Roy and the next message from someone was that it was the worst message read...I will reiterate my thoughts, if MT continues to be like Trembleay, we will lose Subban. Could you imagine after the Olympics, Subban heading to Mo-town? Twenty one years is a long time. I do not want to wait as long as the Black Hawks or get into a funk like the Leafs. Hab fans demand and deserve a better product including the coach!

Well, it is time for a coaching change. Players are not willing to play with intensity or respond to MT consistently. As much as I dislike the Flyers, Philly has a good team.

I do not speak French but can understand a bit of hockey lingo while watching RDS. We watch every game of the Habs on RDS except for Saturday nights! I hope RDS does not lose their coverage of the Habs...will they?

Exactly what I was trying to say the other night VH! I remember the glory days of the 70's. If PK is traded I would hope for him to win a Cup even on another team. We need a coach with tactics and strategy to match our player's talent. And yes, we need a couple of power forward snipers.
