- Comment on Weise back in lineup, Sekac out for Habs vs. Red Wings (2014-10-21 16:30:02)
A first line of Patch-Chucky-Yak would be pretty lethal in future years...would have to have the ozone starts....but wow.

He is a smart guy...maybe a little too smart. He was a scholastic player of the year in the NCAA....he knows there are only so many knocks a guy can take but when push comes to shove he has another gear. He has 10 goals in 22 playoff games with the Habs. Also, if you remember when he was traded by Calgary he was called out publicly for being soft and disengaged...he then proceeded to get two suspensions for two big hits within a month of that statement. One of which was the vicious hit on Backstrom...so when Montreal played Washington he had to answer to Matt Hendricks...and ..he won the fight. Rene Bourque is probably a little cautious at times and perhaps the two suspensions, the being called out, the fact he is very smart and the fact he was suckered by Colton Orr probably have him questioning why he would play that way for the entire 82 game season....but when playoff time comes and when push comes top shove he is a very big, powreful, strong player who can make things happen. It is frustrating ...but no more than many other Habs and players around the game. I can say if they traded Bourque we would not miss him....until playoff time.....and if we played against him he would light us up a la Michael Ryder. It is a long season but utimately it is all about the spring..and in the spring Bourque will play that desperate on edge game again...and he will again be very difficult to stop at his size and speed.

4 pointer ...gonna need all hands on deck, can be no passengers and everyone must be giving 110 percent...need to approach things one game at time and play a full 60 minutes...and while we are at it we should try scoring more goals than the other team too.

I think the Habs should go out and obtain Matt Cooke or even bring back into the NHL Sean Avery as a distracation. They could be paid to be the HIO punching bags and their only purpose would be to be criticized and ridiculed on HIO. That would surely ease the burden off some of the other guys backs.

A lot of speed and guys who one would thinka re ideal to paly agianst the wings on the bench tonight...all of BEaulieu, Sekac and Bournival IMo are ideal fits to play the Wings. On hte other hand maybe Montreal is conceding the speed and is loking to be the physical team instead? Not sure but in theory this lineup doesn't make the ost sense...notw I know Weise can skate but his agility and tenacity is lacking relative to Sekac...but maybethey are trying to rekindle some playoff magic?

? I was saying Eller was only responsible for one goal against not for.

Not sure how "consistent" it has been when we are only judging 6 games (and one of those a lopsided blowout) that is a blink in the eye of a season. I suspect that lien will finish in a minus or close to even though given their role....Pleks is being freed up more offensively and Dd never sees his own end of the rink if possible. Eller is going to be doing some heavy lifting and he is playing with Sekac ( a rookie) and Bourque (an enigma) so I would be shocked if given the role and circumstances that line finished in the plus.

I would prefer to have Beaulieu in against Detroit tonight myself....but Tinordi has played well...but it will be a skating contest tonight and Beaulieu is one of the smoothest skating dmen in the NHL. I know he needs work positionally but his speed may be missed with Detroit's speedy and agile forwards.

Had two goals called back, Sekac absolutely rbbed, hit posts,etc.....eventually those go in...not at Patches rate (have to give some credit to shooter) but their luck has been awful. Re your greasy goal comment...taht is where they have been getting their chacnes...no other line has driven the net as well as them....Bouruqe and Eller have each had great schacnes with middle lane drives an perfect passes...just got robbed. Even Sekac has been great at going to the net....he has also been robbed a couple of times. That line is fine. Their minus us inflated beacuse fot eh combo of not scoring and the Tampa game. The Tampa game should be discarded from everything...I find it funny that peopel say oh the HAbs have socred 20 and given up 20 so they don;t deserve their record? It was one blowout that skews the numbers. HAve they played their best hockey? nope...not even close but they have been good enough to win in all but onea nd in that one were ok until it went 4-1. Personally I found the goaltending was horrific that game....the first 5 gooals were stoppable. IF you flipped Price and Bishoip that game it amy have neded differently. Price is allowed those every once in a while. Eller line will be fine.
