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!

I agree MT wanted to clear contracts and players who are not in Habs future. So he gets Allen and Gonchur in return. If the Habs suddenly lost a couple of starting D to injury before these moves I am sure they would have payed more for Allen or Gonchur. So come the trade deadline barring injuries the Habs are in a good bargaining situation. As well with Beaulieu and Tinordi grooming in the minors they save cash now and next year. If the talent is so great in Hamilton shouldn't they be winning most of their games?

I am all for building with youth, but we must admit Beaulieu and Tinordi etc are not lighting up the AHL

Wow the Canucks are good! They take hits and still pursue and get the puck. They fore check very well and have four good lines. They do not seem obsessed with being individual stars. Weber does ok and well, he can skate! Pittsburgh have their hands full tonight.

I always remember Jean Beliveau being so great at carrying the puck up the ice. I also remember during important playoff faceoffs Jean peeling tape off the blade and then scoring or causing a winning goal.

Yes I like Weaver too. His stick work is amazing, a clinic, hope the younger D pay attention. Weaver also can hit effectively when needed. Smart that MB gets Allen who has played with Weaver in a pairing with Florida.
