Habs fan since: a really long time ago
Favorite current player: I know he's not a Hab, but Ryan Smyth, ever since the Stanley Cup finals a few years back when he took a slapshot to the face, calmly bent over to pick up his teeth, missed two shifts and came back to score the winning goal.
All-time favorite player: Ryan Smyth

Signature:

    Thanks guys. I wonder, though -- with the Wings' long list of walking wounded, maybe the extra days off benefit them more than the healthier Bruins? -- Devils coach Jacques Lemaire on the Daneyko-Kaminski feud - "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out.

    A line like that is nice to have -- a shutdown line with speed that can score. I just wonder if Prust is still healthy/agile enough to play that role against TB's top line. And Gallagher may not be the best fit there, for the defensive duties. I guess you can't argue with a win, though. -- Devils coach Jacques Lemaire on the Daneyko-Kaminski feud - "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out.

    Anybody know why the Boston-Detroit series only starts on Friday, when every other series starts yesterday or today?

    Here's hoping! If you've got a great team, maybe Trotz isn't your guy. But if you want to make a bad team competitive, he's probably one of the best. -- Devils coach Jacques Lemaire on the Daneyko-Kaminski feud - "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out.

    Trotz would work absolute wonders for the Leafs' defensive problems. -- Devils coach Jacques Lemaire on the Daneyko-Kaminski feud - "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out. Dano has only two teeth left, so you can't say that to Dano."

    With TB's top shutdown line focused on the DD line, and with Gionta, Plekanec and Eller likely tasked with shutting down the Stamkos line, there's room for guys like Briere, Gallagher and Bourque to get some offence going. I'd look for them to have a great first round. Likewise, look out for TB's secondary scorers -- a guy like Ryan Malone can really shine in the playoffs, especially if he's being covered by Briere... -- Devils coach Jacques Lemaire on the Daneyko-Kaminski feud - "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out.

    That's fair. If he gets the heat, he should get the credit too. -- Devils coach Jacques Lemaire on the Daneyko-Kaminski feud - "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out. Dano has only two teeth left, so you can't say that to Dano."

    Maybe I'm nuts, but with AG27 out for the first round, it seems to me like the forward lines should be pretty straightforward: 1. Pacioretty-Desharnais-Vanek. That's a given. 2. Eller-Plekanec-Gionta. Shutdown line that plays against TB's top line -- plus they can score. Pleky and Gionta already have some chemistry, and Eller has looked good on their wing. 3. Bourque-Briere-Gallagher. Bourque brings size and some defensive awareness to a small offensive-minded line. Briere can make plays. Gally brings net presence and dirty goals, and maybe motivates two guys in need of motivation. This line is not great at anything, but decent at everything, and could succeed in sheltered minutes. You could make a case for Bournival in Bourque's spot, but then this becomes a tiny line. 4. Some combination of White/Weise/Prust/Moen/Bournival. The kind of line you hate to play against. Parros sits. -- Devils coach Jacques Lemaire on the Daneyko-Kaminski feud - "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out.
