Just look at the numbers. DD has 3g & 15a so far while Eller only has 7g & 4a, so obviously Eller has failed to surpass DD. With his production of more than double the goals while getting little to no PP time, combined with his increased size, isn't it obvious MT will delegate Eller to the wing somewhere? Perhaps he can convince MB that Eller is the correct player to package in a trade, since he fails to meet the primary requirement - being born between the provinces of Ontario and New Brunswick. Sarcasm aside, please prove my doubts unfounded, Bergy. Get rid of the dead weight formerly to Pacioretty's right, preferably packaged with a fossil or three on D for either that missing piece for a Cup run or a hot prospect. Let the young D play, make their mistakes and get experience before the playoffs. And stop using language to determine contract signings.

Apparently Lars Eller had the best doctor in Illinois looking after him postgame, but then DD got a sniffle so Therrien had to doc reassigned

Just curious what Therrien's grudge against Eller is exactly. I'm all for putting our top players on one line. When will Michel realize Desharnais is his 4th best center? Some nights, when Malhotra is on, he goes down to 5th. The fact that fans were railing against Eller, a top 10 pick not too long ago, when every time his line shows up it gets disbanded, shows how fickle and ignorant half the fan base is. Remember when he was clicking with Moen and AK46 for a few weeks? Then Pleks' line needed a jumpstart and so long Andre? If only New Jersey could be tempted to take DD. After all he plays just like Gomez and they're giving him a look.

With all due respect to M. Beliveau, I am growing tired of the bread and circuses thrown my way by Canadiens PR and the media. Besides being a "skilled" team that somehow is one of the most heavily penalized, my main gripe is how Habs fans keep reliving past glories. While it would seem impossible to avoid those glories, I'd like to say enough is enough with the media distractions disguised as historical landmarks. There has not been a Cup winning team, not even a serious contender on the ice, for 20 years and counting. Stop with the jersey retirements and the shovelling of torch-passing ceremonies down our throats and start putting an emphasis on the future. Maybe if that was the way Habs fans and management were perceived around the league we'd be in serious contention for a big UFA or trades. Instead the image I get is of 50+ year old fans disappointed every playoffs and reminiscing on how Sam Pollock drafted Lafleur under everyones noses. There was also a time when the Sun never set on the British Empire, hamburgers cost a dime and beer came in stubbies. Big friggin whoop.

When will Therrien realize his best center is Eller? Some time this season, or a few years from now when he's back on l'Antichambre, Eller is an All Star and DD has no NHL career?

I prefer the GEG line, since they seem to score a goal every game.

Guess I missed the stories about Montreal dealing with their size issue. Maybe Bergevin had his eye on Gerbe and Grabovski to complement Gionta, Gallagher, Desharnais, and Plekanec up front. He still has the toughness of Markov, Gorges and Diaz on D to count on. Face it, people. Whether Montreal does well in the regular season or not they're built to get bounced in the 1st round. So why give a damn anymore if management doesn't?

Lots of comments to the effect that since the signing is for only 2 years, it`s a good move. I have to wonder how short a contract term they would have to offer Gomez for it to also be considered sound strategy. Whatever MB or anyone else in his brain trust are thinking, they need to start looking at the big picture. The last 3 times we`ve been eliminated from the playoffs were due to coming up against physical teams in Philly, Boston and Ottawa. So how does adding another small player solve this? I`ll just say this. I really do hope 2 years fly by, because then I can consider watching the Habs again. This is not some hollow Tony Marinaro boast. I will not watch the Canadiens at all until this no-character punk is shown the door. Considering I successfully boycotted Game 5 vs the Sens because the NHL allows soccer goals to be scored now, I am confident in my resolve. Please join me. It`s the only way MB will learn that not every hiring should be based on language just because his was. Ken Dryden For NHL Commissioner

I hope their bookies can get the refs their winnings in time for a nice night out. NYC is magical this time of year. Come on, OWS, interrupt the game for a forfeit win. Ken Dryden For NHL Commissioner

Back to back games aren't an issue this early in the season, especially after a week off and the next game happening on Tuesday. Ride the streak with Price, I say. Budaj should dress on the 17th vs NYI and then the US Thanksgiving game Friday afternoon against Philly. Unless we've won every game until those with Carey in nets, then it's dealer's choice.
