belarus was a part of ussr- some good hockey players. kostitsyns for 2 in nhl. pretty good canadian team. i thought subban would be asked? cammaleri was but he was right to say no as hed been playing hurt for awhile.

But 3 years ago they decided to clean house and by July 1 thee will be a huge difference. Something Molson will have to do and his stalling of letting the old GMs Gainey and Gauthier keep blundering their way along had better come to an end. Only certain thing next year Leafs are better tan Habs because Burke knows how to build a team. Knows he sometimes makes mistakes himself and CORRECTS them even if he brought the player in himself. Something neither Gainey or Gauthier 2 ignorant old men would never admit they did - a mistake.

And after Gauthier gave him an un-needed almost double raise.

I hope Molson watches Boucher beat Washington on the way to the Cup.

4-1 TSN Jeff Skinner netted the go-ahead goal for Canada near the midway mark of the second period, while John Tavares and Dion Phaneuf padded the lead in the third. Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender James Reimer was strong in net for Team Canada, allowing just one goal.

disconnected? who you or me or him? habs were lowest scoring team of the 16 playoff teams and where they are even worse is scoring on 5 on 5. which is why boston won the series. those are 3 players and add ribeiro to them and latendresse if he wasnt injured - those 5 can fill the net and all habs needed was one lousy goal in one of those 3 overtime losses by just one of them and theyd still be playing. all 5 of them as soon as they leave here drastically improve into scorers. BUT YOU SAY I AM OUT OF TOUCH? I know i keep repeating it but ive followed hockey a long time and you must first have top management - these guys here are not and ONE SERIES WIN IN 18 YEARS AFTER THE FIRST ROUND PROVES IT. 2011 year 8 in gainey/gauthier's 5 year plan! how gullible can you be?

it is because it affects what they have left for all other signings. and gorges definately will be resigned so you get it done as of now even because it is part of the picture. what you say i understand but it is not the point here. halak would not have been less value. in fact if you remember gauthier said we liie both goalies and are going to keep both. and they could have signed him as well then or later if they wanted too - it was only june.

YOURE 100% RIGHT. jm's system? but it is from before martin these problems happened and the only thing in common is gainey with all of tem whether ribeiro or samsonov or graovski was here and gone before martin ever was here a good coach gets the best out of his players by running a system that gets the best out 0of EACH of them. he makes his system fit his players best skills. not the opposite where he changes his players stylves to play his system martin is a survivor nothing else, plays conservative hockey, plays to not l0ose while a coach who wins titles plays the game to win the game. gainey was martins perfect type of player. they are like peas in a pod. 2 boring old guys in a n exciting hard hitting nhl of today. thats why the only d-men they bring in here are pacifists like hamrlik, or spacek who dont want to throw their body weight around. this team just needs a bright mind to run it. 3 or 4 great young players here right now subban, price, pacioretty and eller - get a gm and this team will be fighting for titles. gauthier does not have a clue and cant get that job done - 31 years proves it.

and how much does markov get coming off 3 serious injuries? he is a gamble in another way now. how high will other teams be willing to pay him. to me first you take care of gorges so you know what kind of room you have. thats another blunder of last year. price should have been signed BEFORE halak was traded - ended up they couldnt sign anyone until sept when price signed. but gauthier and gainey cannot lear5n from their mistakes. because they never thought they ever made one. i repeat again - good management wins - that is why this team will never win with them running this show. for me 31 years of gauthiers record is enough proof.
