Not very many GM's are given the time (6-10 years) to truly build a team.

Jeez people are hard on our Habs! Sure they arent a top tier team but are definitely building toward that, their two most important players are still fairly young (Price and PK). The teams top three players so far have been Markov, PK, and Price in my opinion, and it's not a surprise as all (soon to be PK) are NHL all-stars. Pleks and Gionta are so valuable to this team, they could be two thirds of a very competitive second line in the NHL.. if the Habs actually had a first, but the building blocks are in place.. Sure the team has a lot of dead weight in DD, Cube, Briere, Diaz, Murray, and Parros. The progression of Patch, Galchenyuk, Gallagher and Eller has been interesting to watch, im still uncertain of the impact each will play in the future, but there is definitely lots of potential! As a fan, I think first line star power is what this team lacks, along with a little size.. adding size is much easier than top line forward talent.

I'm bored so I'll take a shot at line juggling... Patch-Plek-Gallagher Galchenyuk-Eller-Gionta Prust-Briere-Bourque Bourn-White-Moen PK-Markov Gorges-Emelin Diaz-Murray/Tinordi/Boullion

I'll make it simple. A tie after 10 minutes of 4 on 4 remains a tie. No participation points, no shootout.

I like them both.. Gallagher has shown more fire in his game...

I dunno, there is far too much focus on the negative.. Remember when Dick Irvin Jr was on CBC during the horrid late 90's? The Habs would be getting shellacked so he'd just wander off into a conversation about the glory days? Well, there is a lot to follow on the current version of the Habs.. yes patch is a numbers guy, he scores but little else.. DD sucks... The vets aside from Plek and Marky are suspect.. Gorges is too small for his role.... but man, we need to keep positive. How great is it that the Habs landed Galchenyuk and not Grigorenko??? This kid shows so much promise, a potential All-Star. PK Subban has the potential to be the "no-doubt" best player in the NHL.. yes even better than Crosby, he's that good. Markov is still "slick as sh*t" with the puck... Gallagher is a treat to cheer for, and gives lots of opportunities to cheer... Emelin will come back an punish the odd player, love it! Prust and White are pretty good on the PK, Prusty will be back soon... Eller, the guy keeps getting faster, smoother, and more confident... Halak anyone? Tinordi pumping Ashton on the Leafs.. this kid will be a beast!!!! Bournival, the unexpected surprise.. is it possible we're watching a repeat of Gallagher from last year? a calder candidate in the making? Price being very solid to start the season, impressive... There is more to cheer for than to jeer for folks!

I know they come off easy.. but he crushed the net.. it must have fused in there or something.. man, I hate those injuries that hurt to watch.. was even worse when he tried to get up twice.. second time putting weight on the broken leg..

Markov and PK should always be around 30 mins and play together.. it's fact that you play your two best together and as much as possible.. Gorges has no place in top 2...

Poor Stamkos.. how did the net not come off???

So we all agree.... DD is the new Gomez...
