- Comment on Boyd replaces Gomez; Subban in for Weber (2010-12-10 16:43:53)
Being benched can do two things to a young player:
1. It can cause a player to lose the jump in his step, and do everything on the side of caution, as seen with Obyrne.
2. It can motivate a player to show that he belongs in the lineup.
Subban doesn't strike me as the type of kid that is going to back down from a challenge. I expect him to learn from the benching, and come out flying tonight. He is to type of player that tries to prove himself every time he steps on the ice, and tonight, he's going to play his heart out.
- Comment on Will blindside hit exculpate Cammalleri? (2010-10-03 10:15:11)
I really don't think Cammy deserves a suspension for his actions. That stuff goes on every game (retaliation). What should be looked at is that head hunting Nino was doing, and the houlder to head hit he layed out on cammy before the whole thin went down.
I love Cammy's intensity though. He brings it every game, and i love the edge this guy has. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cum7t3QTHZs&feature=related
- Comment on SK 74 signs in Nashville (2010-07-06 20:43:59)
The team is really starting to shape up. I think management really has a good idea of what needs to be done in order to win in this league.
We finally have some real good, young, third and fourth liners, who are actually groomed to play the 3rd/4th line rather than top 6 forwards that just didnt make it. Our top 6 is set, we don't need to boost it with anyone, and our defense is a mix of young (obyrne, gorges, subban), and old (hammer, spacek, gill), and offensively gifted (markov). Our goaltending, in spite of the constant fight for #1, has never been a problem, and won't be the deciding factor this year.
Things are looking good. Lets sign lapierre and price, and maybe a 7th defenceman (andy sutton) and give it another go!
Go HABS Go
- Comment on Canadiens get their goalie(s) and a forward (2010-07-01 15:31:45)
Man, it's so frustrating to see ppl bash PG on this Auld acquisition. We are not looking to replace Carey Price (we made it clear that he was going to be our guy of the future when we traded Halak). Why on earth would we sign a potential starting goalie (biron, ellis...) when we want to build Price into a starting goalie. We are looking for quick 1 year contracts for guys that can fill in for 10-20 games, while our #1 gets a rest. We arent looking to make the starting role a competition!! Those days are gone, and good riddens....
Are goalie position is set, and was set the second Halak was peaced...now lets look to fill in the 3rd and 4th lines, and maybe add a 1-2 mil big bruiser on the back end. I'm actually hoping we land Andy Sutton...man would he protect markov!
- Comment on Pregame audio: Spacek game-time decision (2010-04-28 10:45:41)
This may be the most nervous i've ever felt for a habs game...and it's not because we are in tough against them, but rather because it may be a coming out party for our boys. I'm nervous/excited to see what they are going to bring to the table tonight.
The key will be to put on some ealry pressure and make them make acouple mistakes. Their fans aren't to pleased with them and if we can establsih some ealry pressure, their fans may snap and start booing and such! On that note, i hope cammy can continue his first period heroics!

- Comment on View from there: Ovechkin dings Theo (2010-04-14 17:27:32)
Anyone have any idea about defensive pairings for tomorrow? I certainly don't think the experiment with bergeron paired up with markov will last. Hopefully, we can get markov matched up against that first line and stick an unproven, but definitely improving obyrne on his side. I just can't see the chech-duo (hammer and jaro) and keeping up with the high flying ovy. They would have been a great shut down duo 10 years ago, but the game as skated them by. I'm thinking:
Obyrne - markov
Hammer - Spacek
Gill - gorges
and revolving doors for darche, mad max, bergeron, pyatt (although pyatt should get the most playing time i think)
- Comment on Higgins in, AK 46 skates (2008-10-25 14:36:34)
I thnk tonight's game will be a true test for our sacred habs...No matter how anaheim has played of late, they represent a proven stanley cup contender, and i think, if we can dismantle them, we will finally deserve all the credit and praise we've been getting of late(Lets not forget we have played some of the seller-dwellers of the NHL in our first couple games). Either way, i'm still convinced that you can't hit what you can't catch and, therefore, we should be in good shape tonight if we come out skating hard and [assing quick through the neutral zone! GO HABS GO!
