    Man, Bergevin is terrible -- hasn't brought his team to the conference finals since last year. -- "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." -Jacques Lemaire

    That gap is due to the fact that people expect every new Habs depth player to be Mario Lemieux. And the coach is giving DSP the patented Therrien treatment, same as Sekac got and same as a lot of guys get. Gotta admit it worked for Subban, not so much for Sekac. -- "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out.

    Two 22-year-olds, both with upside and comparable points, one with more grit and the other with a better shot. They both fill organizational needs, and neither is lighting the world on fire with their new team. Sometimes both teams win a trade. Sometimes nobody wins. And usually it takes years to find out. -- "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." -Jacques Lemaire

    On whether teams are going to run Price in the playoffs, I love Torrey Mitchell's answer: "I know it happened last year in the playoffs, but I think we have enough character in this room not to let that happen." For all its spots and blemishes, I love that this is a team of guys that stick up fro each other -- all the more impressive considering the roster overhaut his year. -- "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out.

    Consistent with Canada's foreign policy values lately... -- "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." -Jacques Lemaire

    Good point re: L.A. I've got a strong irrational dislike of that team, don't know why. Other than the mandatory hate-on for Justin Williams following his amateur eye surgery on Saku... And wifebeater Slava Voynov... And Mike Richards... -- "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out.

    I can see giving Price a shot to break the Habs' wins record, but not at the expense of doing what's best for the team. I'm happy to rest Price for Saturday. Against any other team I'd be rooting hard for the Jets. Fighting for their lives, and they've got a lot of heart. -- "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out.

    I like your way of thinking. But I'd advocate trying hard to re-sign Petry, for same the reason that Detroit may want him -- he a strong 1st or 2nd-pairing guy who moves the puck extremely well, and those players are hard to come by. If we can pick him up --and Gonchar and Weaver leave -- then along with Pateryn and Tinordi we've got eight NHL-ready defencemen. That sounds like a lot, but we don't really have anyone on the farm who's ready to step up. Even at $5.5M he's reasonable value, and MB could find room for him thanks to his savvy cap moves this year. Aside from helping insulate the team from injuries, Petry's added depth also make a guy like Emelin or Gilbert expendable if we want to package some players for a 2nd-line winger. -- "Daneyko got mad when Kaminski said he was going to knock his teeth out.

    Reminds me of this quote, also applicable to our heated debates about ice-skating millionaires we've never met: ""In any dispute the intensity of feeling is inversely proportional to the value of the issues at stake."
