- Comment on Canadiens given two days off; Nathan Beaulieu sent to Hamilton (2014-11-24 21:47:57)
I didn't see my question answered on a previous thread, so I'll ask again: Was there a particular reason why they didn't start Price last night? Their next game isn't until Buffalo, so Price would have had 4 days off to rest. And if it was just to give Toker a game they could have done it in Buffalo against a much weaker team that the Rangers, which would have also given Price another day off. As it was, it was like they threw in the towel against the Rangers even before the opening faceoff, and it showed.

So what was the reasoning behind having Tokarski start tonight? I'm not hanging the loss on him... just wondering.

I'd consider having Manny take the faceoff to start a powerplay on the short change and have him switch off once the team gains posession.

Oilers are a mess. I understand the "draft the best player available" philosophy, but that only works if you're willing to flip one of those assets to address other needs. Just think... two weeks ago the Oilers could have had Moen AND Bourque for Yakapov! ;)

Oops... that last post was courtesy of my 3-year-old. Still, it might be the most intelligent thing ever poster here. :)

Ian, you're right about that shot on TV last night. They were trying to drum up sympathy for the Bruins, but it didn't work in my house!

Is Strombo too cool to wear a real suit like the others on the panel?

Hawks/Oilers is getting boring. I think that I'll head on over to the NESN pages to poke the bear a little.
