Here in Boston the reports are that Krug will in fact play tonight, so we shall see. As for the Habs lineup, I dislike how the Habs continue to conform to what the other team is putting on the ice. I can understand putting Murray in as the 6th Dman to bring in some pop and solid PK, but the 4th line, I hate it. Playing its 6th game in 9 nights, 3rd in 4 nights and 2nd of a back to back is putting Parros in to play 4 minutes really worth it? I say NO, NO, NO. This team is going to be tired and will need to roll these lines, yet MT is putting the team at a huge disadvantage, especially since the Bruins 4th line playing 8-11 minutes per player and yes, that includes its goon, Thornton. The Habs should have gone with a 3rd line of: Galchenyuk-Eller-Bournival and a 4th of Moen-White-Prust. Are you telling me that 4th line cannot play 10 solid minutes of hockey and drop the gloves if they HAVE to? The Habs strength is skill and speed, so play to your strength, not play toward Bostons toughness. In fact, when you look at Boston, who on the team other than Lucic, Chara, Thornton and maybe Boychuk can be considered tough? Good, if Lucic and Chara want to fight, let them. Gets their best players off the ice. But, this is why I am not a coach in the NHL I suppose. HaHa

Or you could put a lineup of speed and skill against the Bruins like last season in which they went 3-1. Also, if the Bruins want to goon it up, let them. Remember when Chara went after Emelin and got a 2-5-10 and allowed the Habs to come back and win the game? Do not comform the lineup to another team, work to your strengths. Let Murray get in the lineup as the 6 dman and go with a 4th line of Prust-White-Moen. Those guys can scrap if need be, but more importantly, they can PLAY hockey.

Player A: 27 GP, 9-9-18, +7, 50% FO %, 7 PP pts, 1 SHG, 4 GWG, 69 SOG Player B: 27 GP, 8-5-13, +8, 60% FO %, 1 PP pt, 1 SHG, 2 GWG, 74 SOG Player B is discussed throughout the national media nonstop and is always talked about as being one of the, if not THE best two way player in the world. Nothing negative is ever spoken about him. I could go on and on. Player A = Plekanec Player B = Patrice Bergeron

I am sure many of you have made mention of this, so I am sorry if this has been talked about: Markov's next deal. This scares me. Let's face it, the guy has been incredible this season and going into next season it is clear his absence would be a huge hole to fill. Could be done via free agency, but that will be tough, and there is just no way Beaulieu will be ready to fill that top 4, top PP unit role, at least in my opinion. So, do you resign him? I think we can all agree we would love to have him back, but the issue becomes at what cost. Look at what Streit just got in Philly and then look at how they probably already regret that deal. How about Gonchar in Dallas? Yikes. Then you have a player who brings no offense to the table in Seidenberg for Boston who is losing his speed day by day getting a fairly large deal for his age. It scares me in what Markov will be getting. 3 years at $6mil per seems to be exactly around a deal he will be looking for especially with the cap going up. But will he be worth it over these years? He will clearly want a NTC and remember it will be a 35+ contract. It is def. a tough spot. What to do? What to do? In the end I def think he resigns, but at what cost, what length and will it come back to bite the team like these Streit, Gonchar deals have already?

Let me get this straight: you "heard" he told his agent he wanted to be traded? So, he signs a long term extension then asks to be traded? So, he tells his agent he wants to be traded, then fires said agent? Oh, ok. Makes sooo much sense. Glad you have your ears to the ground on this issue.

I know you usually only come here to troll, but are you serious with this idiotic question? Let me put this as simple for you as I can: you may not have your house on the market, but that cannot stop people from offering to buy it from you. MB is not going to screen his calls when other GMS call him. Wow, just wow.

Could be worse, a lot worse! I live in Boston, so you know what that means, right? Jack Edwards. End of discussion. HaHa

To you both, why do you say that? Gio will be gone and even if Markov comes back, there is no chance he nor Pleks will be captain. Great assistants, but not vocal enough to have the C in my opinion. Gorges is vocal enough and has been on the team long enough to be able to wear the C. Also, just because he is not the most talented person does not mean he cannot wear the C. So, please, give me someone on this team next season who should have the C over him?

The real stat that I, like many others would like to see is what the faceoff % is when it comes to defensive and offensive zone draws.

MT is trying to so hard to put DD in a position to succeed and I get that. Putting him on the 4th line will do nothing for him. But with that being said, why is MT putting Briere in a position to fail on the 4th line with Moen and Bournival? It just does not make much sense. I highly doubt the plan when signing Briere to a 2 year deal was to have him on the 4th line with a rookie and Moen. Because that has success written all over it.
