    Brock Trotter has 36 goals and 77 points in 75 games last season with the Bulldogs. Why doesn't he ge even a shot with the Habs this season?

    Can he possibly be worse than Pouliot? Work ethic alone puts him much higher on my depth chart.

    I really don't understand the thought process of our management. We just let a guy like that walk! I saw him play numerous times last season during business trips to Hamilton. He's got real talent.

    I posted this last night the Canadian Juniors squad game, but for thoe who didn't see it:


    Just got back from the Red vs White game here at Mile One in St. John's. Of course I had my eye on Louis Leblanc the entire night, here's what I noticed:

    - Very smooth skater, can generate speed very quickly out of the zone.

    - For a centerman he didn't carry the puck a whole lot, saw him coasting around in the offensive zone waiting for a pass or looking for open ice.

    - Great vision when he did have the puck, got two assists with absolute beauty cross-ice passes in front of the net.

    - Seemed generally disinterested in being on the ice and showed little, if any, emotion.

    - Did a lot of circling around, waiting for plays to develop where players like Schenn and Kassian were trying to make things happen.

     

    Tyler Seguin:

    I wasn't impressed at all. He was shifty in the neutral zone but couldn't make anything happen inside the offensive zone. Maybe he was tired after a long camp, but he certainly didn't stand out to me or my buddies who attending the game. Had a few shots on goal which sailed high over the net.

    haha, I'm back in St. John's now! I was living in Beaumont, Texas when I created this account. Back on the rock now though!

    Intelligent viewpoint.

    Much appreciated, HardHabits.

    You need to drop your PASSIONATE man-crush for Price dude, it's creeping people out...

    Cape Breton? Nice, I have family there.

    No, actually I'm a petroleum engineer. Texas tea baby!

    Trying to find work here in the province was brutal. Things should be turning around soon though.

    I'm actually from St. John's, NL... just been living and working away for a few years. Back home for a while now though.

    Nice football reference though!

    And I would agree with you as well. I loved Halak's work ethic, he never gave up. The only reason I can't stand Price is because he looks like he just does. not. care. He acts as though he knows he has the thrown no matter what. And analysts call it "composure".

    I'd love to see a revitalized Price with Halak's work ethic. If that happens, I'm a happy camper.

    Wow.

    "How is it that the goalie plays excellent in the run to the Cup, and you say it was the TEAM... Yet Halak plays well in the Playoffs and NO ONE SAYS ANYTHING ABOUT THE TEAM... It just sounds stupid...."

    Well, it's clear that you didn't watch any of the Habs postseason run. I wouldn't call 50-save bailout performances by Halak a TEAM effort, haha.

    "And my FAVORITE... You said Price couldnt stop a beach ball, and was lucky Toews was on the team to bail him out... WHY oh WHY did they name PRICE the tounrnament MVP and not TOEWS??????????????"

    Who was more valuable in that game? The goalie who let all the goals in, or the player who scored them all to bail him out?

  • Comment on Live tonight on RDS! (2010-07-08 22:36:51)

    Obviously Halak wasn't as good then as he is now. That doesn't even make sense. What kind of goalie prospects gets worse with time?

    Oh wait.
