- Comment on Jack Todd: Canadiens could win the Stanley Cup (2015-03-02 05:40:51)
With Tampa trading their first rounder away this morning, that leaves three top 10 teams with first round picks available: Montreal, Detroit, and Anaheim. In a year with a deep draft, EIGHT teams have no first round pick Secondly, seeing as any trade these days that involves a star player needs a first-rounder in it, will Bergevin having one allow him to make better offers?

I wouldn't worry too much about Sekac being benched. It will probably make him a better player. He is still with the team, practices with the team and is learning everything else the team is from the coaching staff. When he gets back in there, he will likely be trying extra hard. Secondly, one of the players taking up his roster spot is likely being showcased for a trade. I am going to hold off on the "OMG WHAT IS THERRIEN DOING" until after March 2nd.

Mr Boone, I know it's meant in jest, but you should refrain from calling people dweebs. I am a high school teacher and people are called nerd ( I dont really hear the 16 year olds say dweeb) and the word is used to put people down. People need to get in the habit of not putting people down because they are smart. In the case of the analytics "enthusiasts" many of them aren't even showing that much intelligence because they cant adapt what they know about math to the reality that the Habs are cruising in first place.

I wouldnt be too thrilled if all I got for my first round pick was a bottom 6 player and 4th defenceman. Everyone knows Bergevin wouldnt have paid this and that the prices until 2:55 PM March 2nd are going to be too high to risk anything right now.

Pacioretty is woefully bad in the shootout. He even jokes about it.

CBC showed Price's record since the Olympics last year and it was just ridiculous. One thing stuck out, that Price only had 2 overtime losses in a calendar year. Price also allowed his first shootout goal of the season tonight. He has been godly on penalty shots/shootout this year. I wouldnt know how to look it up but can anyone find Price's record in extra time since last year.

Desharnais has 7 points in 4 games and he's the first person you criticize. Scores the winner in OT but that's the first guy you go after? Desharnais had some of the best scoring chances tonight, many of which he creates himself. He scores the OT winner but that's all luck of course. All of Price's saves are skill but Therrien's wins and Desharnais' goals are luck. Hard to argue with results... Haters gonna hate I guess.

Wins in this streak include 4 playoff teams: Nashville, Islanders, Rangers and Capitals...not bad for a team that usually has a slump this time of year!

I get that in previous years, we used to lose these kinds of games. People are so used to being negative that they cant be happy with taking two points we didnt deserve and adding them to the bunch of points that we do deserve. When a team trails, they shoot more. When a team gets 2 long 5 on 3s and a 5 minute powerplay, they'll probably have a lot of shots. We won the game anyway. Let's be happy about that!
