    And on the Habs no less! Daang!

    Kidding, kidding.

    But yeah, agree 100%. .912 is not a bad save percentage, and trending upwards too. EVERYBODY (except Halak + Leafs fans, evidently) recognize the Price is a blue-chip goaltending prospect. <-- Yes, I said prospect. He is only 22, NO goalies are anywhere within reasonable distance of their potential @ age 22. I mean, same as Steve Mason. He had a hardcore fail of a season and people still think he's gonna be good. I honestly believe Price & Subban are going to represent Canada in the 2014 olympics, I'm just hoping they're both still playing for the Habs.

    BREAKING NEWS:

    Mike Boone has signed a 1,293 year deal with RDS! In the first year of his contract, he makes $10,000,000, and every year after that he makes 0.01! The cap hit for the radio station ends up being something around $14 every year.

    On Gorges, yes, I said he was a good character guy, but did I put a ceiling on how much character he has by saying he's a character guy? No. I think he has a crapload of character. I would like to see him captain (but then again I'm not in the dressing room). Remember, I was saying I wouldn't do that trade.

    And I may have brought him (O'B) up in my post, but you brought him up in your post as well, so I replied to that. And I didn't realize I didn't want you to say that. My bad. Thanks for telling me what I want & don't want.

    Dunno what I'd do without you.

    I'll agree to disagree to disagree with you on Gorges. I think he's a phenomenal character dude, who, when paired with the right guy, can be a force (defencively) on D, but he's not a top 4 defensemen. Purely defensive D-men rarely are.

    On K senior, dude, I'd do that in a heartbeat. Mostly 'cause I have a particular dislike to the dude.

    And hey now, wasn't O'B your "boy"? If I think he's gonna be a good replacement for Gill when he comes up.

    Didn't Kovy say he wanted to finish his career in Montreal? If so, that means he may want to sign with the Habs next year... Dunno what I'd think about that. He might be mildly useful if the Habs still need a winger (which I think is unlikely) and he'd be capable of potting 20.

     Also, it will be interesting to see what type of a contract Richards will want.. I don't think he nearly deserves his 7.3m contract or whatever the heck it is. Gomez deserves his easily more than Richards does. I couldn't imagine Richards would be willing to accept a significant pay cut (would have to be in the 5-6m range, something akin to Cammy's), which is what it would take for him to be worth it.

    On another note (one which there is a possibility I will be shreiked at for) I say: Screw Markov. I want Shea Weber!

    If people are complaining about the Habs not acquiring Simon Gagne, consider this:

    The Flyers got in return a good, cheap 4th/5th defensive defenseman in Matt Walker. Who on the Habs roster fits that bill? Josh Gorges!

    Would you trade Josh Gorges (or even Ryan O'byrne) and a pick for Gagne? I wouldn't.
