I have been reading lots of posts since the beginning of the season with people's disappointments of MT and wanting him gone. It did culminate in the last 2 weeks prior to the team going on the current streak, but I could've been reading into it wrong I guess. I'm just saying that MT and the whole staff from top down has been doing a great job in my opinion. Shaker out!

Some on here want MT fired. Some want him to stay. Some think he will get extended in the off season. I'm thinking he stay's and get's that extension. Question is…..what french/english speaking coach is available now or speculatively might be available that can do a better job than MT? shaker out

Didn't like Chucky being benched, but that's part of learning I guess……but what is the reason for benching Parros? If you dress the guy, play the guy. He had what, maybe 4 shifts and one of those shifts was the fight with Orr right off the face off. Keep bournival or white in the lineup if your not going to play parros or role 4 lines. Felt bad for him! I know he is a defensive liability out there, but with prust and moen, there is no reason he can't have a regular shift. Give him another shot and remember george, no staged fighting…..there really is no place for it. Shaker out

Was there even any speculation about a possible concussion? I don't think there was……I'm thinking he's just fine and will be ready for the leafs tomorrow night. Just MT's rotation system for me! Shaker out!

I think he wants and gets 4 years in the 6 mill/per range especially after the new telly deal. Also, he deserves it! Shaker out!

I agree with you…..don't understand the need to retaliate when a clean check is thrown…….that is the only spot where the instigator penalty should come into play. I think teammates step up in that situation to show each other that they have there backs. But instead of getting into a useless scrap in that situation and draw a penalty that gives the other team more of a chance to grab the momentum, calm down, and make a big hit later on in the game, or next shift. And to your point of the NHL appealing itself to more fans, our neighbours to the south are never going to embrace the NHL no matter what they do. Canadians carry this league, and I believe the majority of fans like fighting. If the NHL wants more fans, here is the answer. In 2016 when expansion comes into play, Quebec and Ontario get teams or Quebec and Saskatchewan. That's how the NHL get's stronger and broadens it's fan base. Shaker out!

Sign Marky……4 years @ 6 - 6.5 mill per…….This guy has been the best hab to date. His vision and passing are second to none in the game from the back end. He makes exit passes so easy, that the habs transition game especially last night was flawless. He pinch's at just the right time and quarterbacking the PP….forget about it! This guy has rediscovered his old self, I want to say Nick Lidstrom esque. And remember last year, Marky was a huge minus in the +/- statistic………now he's leading the team…….a great testament to his turnaround and comeback from terrible knee injuries. Keep it up Marky! Funny how guys tend to have break out or stellar seasons when it's contract time. Price was solid again, Pleks was and is a modal of consistency……P.k., aside from getting bounced off the puck was good (I think the olympic pressure is affecting him a bit) Don't like the briere demotion to the fourth line in the third period….that fourth line has been very good, leave it alone. Bourque in for who on Friday afternoon? and possibly Parros' return on Saturday night….who sits? Shaker out!

I agreed with everything Boone wrote up until the last point about the Scott-Murray fight last night. Like it or lump it, fighting is here to stay. It was a good battle…….murray has huge pair for going after scott. Thankfully it wasn't a staged fight! I enjoy a good tilt and feel there is a place for a scrap or two in the NHL. Shaker out!
