good one. we have two second lines and two 4th lines - also 1.5 defense pairings. at least our goaler is a #1

wow MT has outdone himself. Eller scratched and Prust in his place on 3rd line - prolly w/ Sekac. MT plays favorites for sure - has guys he likes and guys he doesn't. Eller - is one he doesn't. apparently Bourque - who is terrible - even worse than terrible considering the skills he actually posses - gets to play. WTF?

Habs problem right now - not enough good players. you heard it here first. I hope MB makes a move and now - this team is so f-ng lucky to have the record they do - could easily be 500 or worse and I would not be surprised to see long loosing streak. getting nothing out of 3rd line, nothing out of the PP and too many stupid penalties.

it depends on your provider. ultimately - its the last mile that determines if you get the HD feed. they are all broadcast in HD - just some cable companies (or fiber to the home or what not) - save a few cents by throttling down the BW to standard def. I agree it looks horrible. On DirectTV it appears we are getting HD games - even when its CAN vs. CAN team..was not like that in previous years.

awesome to have the game in HD in the States on Center Ice. First year we've gotten that - hockey is unwatchable in standard def these days. Lets be honest - Habs lost because Oilers out played them. We had no sustained offense - no real good scoring chances and our PP is abysmal. Gilbert is terrible, Beaulieu might be spending a lot more of the season in Hamilton and PK has been way less than stellar - sloppy, predictable - especially in D zone. no denying Habs are very very very lucky to be 7-2 - no way that continues - they need to start playing better.
- Comment on No lineup changes expected for Habs vs. Avalanche (2014-10-18 10:13:20)
those club1909 spots are really good…no clue WTF they are about but funny none the less… I like how Jay uses their whole names…EVERYONE knows who they are.. good morning Carey Price
- Comment on Alexei Emelin in lineup, Nathan Beaulieu out for Habs against Bruins (2014-10-16 17:11:32)
what do we think happens tonight w/ the whole Lucic thing? nothing? does he go after Weise? I highly doubt that. Does he fight Prust or Tinordi - decent probability of that. I'm my mind - and I know I'm a cement head according to some - I think the Habs need to broach the subject with him ASAP to begin and end it on their terms in their building at their home opener. Maybe Prust or Tinordi challenges him or better yet - I'd go have a chat with him - explain that if he gets out of line then someone on the Habs is going to take Bergeron's head off…see how that goes over. anyone notice all the non-fighters fighting? kinda defeats the purpose of having no enforcers - no?
- Comment on Habs send Bournival down to Hamilton (2014-10-15 13:44:08)
I have a huge history of not wanting the Habs to be under-manned in the toughness department based on years and years of astute observations because I know teams do not perform to the best of their abilities when they are being roughed up, intimated, beat-up - whatever you want to call it. I do not subscribe the notion that just because they are grown men and professional athletes - that they guys don't get scared or nervous or whatever - because they do. I think the Habs top players would play better if we had more toughness - not interested in John Scott but I sure would enjoy having Anthony Peluso on our 4th line and PA Parenteau being Wayne Simmons instead. I hope there is no BS and the Habs win a closely contested game on Thursday but - but - I'm not holding my breath…if either team ends up with a large lead - going to end up being a very long night for our Habs team because instead of doing nothing in response to being beat down (assuming Habs are winning) - the Bruins will likely try to get their licks in.
- Comment on Habs will have plenty to work on at practice (2014-10-15 12:38:52)
good discussion - I was really just trying to stir the pot - LA is not a goon squad by any means but they are a lot tougher than the Habs - across the board. Their toughest guys are tougher and their not tough guys are not as not tough. Habs are soft mes amis and the point I was making against TB is ZERO push back…you don't have to start fights, bully people or pick on smaller players but for the love of your game-check - DO SOMETHING.

LA Kings are leading the lead in fighting majors…just an FYI to all those who like to drop that name as a team which proves you don't need to be tough to win or whatever argument is normally used. Habs had zero push back when getting slaughtered in TB - lets see what happens with Boston.
