- Comment on Canadiens give Price day off after win over Stars (2015-01-28 20:21:51)
Yes depressing!!! Hudon was the best in the all star game. I wish a call up would just jump a level or two, its been awhile. Lafleur scored 130 goals in his last year of junior wow! So we expect too much?

Charle Hudon looked great tonight at the AHL all star game.The AHL Bulldog rookie won MVP offense with 3 goals 1 assist. He is smart with the puck, great hands and plays 200 foot game.He was the only man back a couple of times. The AHL all stars included some first round picks. Charles Hudon (CH) really stood out and was +4. He played centre. Kinda wonder where all the great defenseman of the Bulldogs were, why none were picked hmmmmm....................
- Comment on Habs’ OT loss to Penguins infuriates Carey Price (2015-01-11 21:52:56)
Habs last power play on Pens game was incredibly inept. You have an extra man! This should mean there is always someone not covered. That was one of Beliveau's great gifts to successfully Take the puck up the ice. Find that guy and play him at forward if he is a d man. Also needed are one or two clever passers and someone who can shoot and is good on the wall! I just described PK, he is all of the above and more!
- Comment on Game Within the Game: The Carey Price ethos (2015-01-07 22:07:35)
Toronto firing Randy Carlyle a big mistake. Should have dumped the hedgehog in the headlights Nonis! The team was doing pretty good for the players and injuries they have. I actually sympathize with the players a tad. They need to do what Vancouver did. Exactly what is Shamaham doing????? Is he poser man? There must be a respected leaf out there somewhere, how about Sundin?

Good for Emelin & Gilbert! Before Emelin stepped in front a bus (Lucic ) A couple of years ago he was starting to display some great offensive skills. I hope he is back. I liked MB's player upgrades. Players such as Moen, Georges, Gionta and Briere while still capable of playing in this league they really had no more upside. Players such as Emelin and Gilbert do. Their best may be still ahead. MB seems to have a good handle on talent and potential.
- Comment on Pacioretty could be in lineup for Habs against Senators (2014-12-20 14:12:17)
I like Sven, glad he is back in the lineup. He seems to be able to operated in the space given him.
- Comment on Habs send Tokarski to Hamilton for conditioning stint; Pacioretty listed as day-to-day (2014-12-19 20:05:53)
The hit on Max 3 officials saw nothing? Jails are full of people who said " I didn't mean to hurt them" Should we release them? Until these footlocker refs are suspended or disciplined the injury prevention from head hunting is not happening. Next excuse...... My fart drove me forward unintentionally!
- Comment on Liveblog: Ducks edge Canadiens on Saku Night (2014-12-18 23:49:27)
There were three officials on the ice for the hit on Pacioretty. Clearly more than a player should be fined or suspended. If the NHL truly wants to stop these kinds of hits official must also be accountable not some video guy in Toronto! The normal missed and bad calls I can live with they are like missed shots/saves. Thinking back to the Chara hit, how did the league twist its head so far as to miss that. We, all saw the video over and over and over.............. And "he didn't mean it" does not wash anything! If it did we could open the prisons and release thousands!

PK does not get the same breaks other elite players get when it comes to penalties, why?
- Comment on Galchenyuk at centre as Habs prepare to face Canucks; Beaulieu called up from Hamilton (2014-12-08 16:41:11)
I saw Bournival playing his position centre at game in Saint John. I was impressed, he carried the puck up ice well and made good passes to his wingers. His play struck me as disciplined and responsible. Putting players that are centres on the wing such as Bournival and Chucky is not too smart. Look how long it took Pleks to win faceoffs and be adequate on the PP. But there he is!
