well Montreal needs to work on the powerplay and start this before Markov comes back so it doesnt put too much pressure on him.
read this article on habsindepth about the power play

Yeah you are so right about that. I had a chance to follow the training camp and he looked good to me during the rookie camp so I am sure with some experience of NA hockey in smaller rinks, he will be an awesome player to watch. Patience is the key :-)

Congrats. It is surely fun when you get to write your own opinions or represent a certain team doing something for them. Recently I have also been involved in working for www.habsindepth.com and write few articles there and I must say it has been challenging and fun at same time. Given the opportunity to talk about Habs is awesome. I never had a chance to follow OHL hockey but I have heard from many people that it is as fun as any other hockey, if you love the sport. So Wish you all the best.

funny how on your team, Darche has no room while he has been one of their best forwards. Even tonight he played great with two perfect passes to Plekanec and Eller.

I don't understand what is the need to bash Halak and compare Price and Halak. WE all know they are two good goalies. Halak did amazing for the team and took them far in the playoffs and it was awesome being part of that experience but let's not forget we were number one in conference not that long ago and Price took us there. A team needs many elements to succeed but yes you do need someone to step up and this year in playoffs it was Halak, Gill, Georges, Cammillari. The year we finished first it was line of Kovalev, Plecs and Andrei that was flying and Price didn't do that alone. We as a team need to get bigger and not just bigger but better as well. Looking at Hamilton, we have some good players but they are all small with exception of Pacioretty (who was injured anyways). We do have have players like Engqvist who might be good but even then, we are thin when it comes to talent and size and this Lars kid has done well in his first year in AHL and he will only get better. We had to choose between two goalies and the management chose Price. Suck it up and live with it now.

oh I also remember a MVP goalie not that long ago who was also the best in league and got a HUGE contract to just fail year after year. I am glad we got to witness some great goaltending by Halak but let's say he can repeat that next year in a conference that is bigger and badder and where he will get to play lots of minutes. I wish him best of luck but we have seen many conn smythe winners changing teams before so not end of the world. You call them minor leaguer I call them prospect. Seems like you don't understand what a minor leaguer is. These guys are 20 year old prospects and one of them you will see in habs uniform next year.

you are starting to annoy the f*ck out of many of us here repeating same thing. NO. Gainey is NOt in charge of this team anymore. He has enough class and had he wanted to still run the team, he would have accepted the habs offer to renew his contract so stop with ur moaning about Gainey still running this team. Just cuz the fans here decide Halak is worth Carter, doesn't mean that is what the other GM's think. I think we got two young players who will deepen our talent pool in Hamilton (which is week) and Lars is basically NHL ready and I am sure down the line he will be a good player for us. AS for YOUR so called bidding war. wake up..not many teams need goalie in league right now and getting a first round developed NHL player is a good deal

I like Ellis too. He has had good numbers and was out of job not because he played bad but due to awesome play of Pekka Renne...he is 29 but I dont think he will come cheap and if Gauthier already said Price will start as number 1..I would doubt that Ellis would want to sign with us and as for this Toskala crap, I dont even think he will be in NHL next season. Anaheim clearly mentioned that Toskala wanted to be number one and thats why they didnt sign him so he can say goodbye to NHL. I would see a guy like Biron or even Mason (I think he was decent in St Louis last year). You would probably want to sign a goalie who can take over in case Price still needs time to develop...overall I am not disappointed with this trade. I loved Halak but team comes first and this Lars guy seems to be good. I have always loved teams like German, Switzerland...small european teams know value of working hard and I am hoping this guy brings that team spirit and hard working attitude...now time to get rid of K brothers
