The streams are usually pretty good and unfortunately there is no legal way to watch the RDS broadcast online as far as I know.

I think Beaulieu has a good chance to play with Gilbert. I really hope either Nygren or Pateryn get the job as our 3rd RD. I don´t mind Weaver but they have much more upside. Weaver on the other hand is relatively slow, small, has no offence in him and he´s 36 years old. Tinordi would be my number 7 on D, Weaver number 8. In any case the D looks much better than last season. Has Murray retired btw or will be be the 7th dman on one of the lesser ECHL teams this year?

"The inane resistance to analytics is as stupid as it is tiresome." Thank you for that. I can only agree.
- Comment on Markov as next Habs captain? (2014-08-18 16:33:37)
Don´t forget he´s black, too. Idiot.

Markov would be a good captain for the next three years. After that? Subban until he retires.

Right. We can probably make another good playoff run and then trade one of our most important players right before it. Great idea.

Heart wise? Not much difference I guess. Talent wise? Not even close. Having Gilbert as our second RD instead of Emelin and Emelin as our third LD instead of Bouillon or Murray is a huge upgrade. With Markov, Beaulieu, Emelin and Tinordi on the left Gorges might not be a loss at all. On the other hand I´m not sure we won´t miss Gionta more than some think.

I´ve been to many places and in general I can´t complain but there were two very unfriendly cities: 1. Ulan Bator, Mongolia 2. Vienna, Austria I´m really happy Budapest is on the list among the friendliest cities. I love that city.

"the only thing I know is that Pacioretty and Desharnais will play together…" That seems right, unfortunately. It will be interesting to see if Eller finally gets to center the second permanently, if Sekac makes the team or a rookie like Andrighetto, de la Rose or Hudon.

Markov or Plekanec should be captain but I´d give Subban an "A". Prust? He might really struggle to get a regular spot on the fourth line next season.
