The question was asked "where does Eller play". Look size matters in the playoffs. Big strong Lars has been one of our best when the real hockey starts (the playoffs). Smurfs do not cut it when the intensity is ratcheted up. Do not even think about getting rid of Eller.

Thank you for this story. A truly great hockey player and an even greater human being. True humility is a very rare quality.

A truly great man. Saw him play for many years . 507 goals could have easily been 600. He was that unselfish. He wore the garment of true humility like a beautiful tailored suit with natural grace and class. To see once more numero quatre pick up the pass just at the face off circle to the right of Plante, long beautiful skating strides straight through the centre CH, undress the D at the blue line , swoop in on the goaltender, deftly deke him out and tuck the puck gracefully into the net.

Jean Beliveau- Class, grace, humilty, a truly great man, a great human being. , Was living in Boston the year of his last Stanley Cup watching the greattcome from behind game with a bunch of Bruins fans. He put the whole team on his back and brought them back from a 3 goal deficit . The Boston paper sports section dedicated 3 pages to nothing but Beliveau. Such respect. I remember Derek Sanderson started to pick a fight with Beliveau in the 3rd period. He looked at who he had grabbed and just skated ashamedly away. Just read the news and say unashamedly the tears flowed. A great man has ascended from this world. May he drink deeply from the sweet scented streams of eternity.

Sekac Eller; big strong and quick. Very tough combo to deal with. Come playoff time they will become a real force and they are young which bodes well for the playoffs which is the second season. Oh to be young and strong!!!

As Jean Beliveau said the great Montreal teams were built from the net out. Great goal tending solid D. Excellent game from PK and the rest of the D. This team could go a long way.

Someone commented that the Eller Sekac line should be on the powerplay. Totally agree and have been saying that for weeks. The problem is not Markov Subban or Gomchar. The problem is up front with a less than aggressive fire check. The puck is lost too easily. As for the play of Weise I remember commenting to my son that the Rangers knew what they were doing when they took him out in last years playoff. His fore checking was killing them.

Was really impressed with PK last night. He was really pumped as you could see during the anthems but he stayed solid in playing the system. His strong physical play behind our net was key in the second goal. He kept the play in front of him and no passes that were risky. Rock solid. This was a good team they were playing but the Habs kept their shape and Price as in most games makes the saves he has to make.

Tinordi as we need his physical presence to take pressure off PK. When the playoff arrives the physical aspect of Tinordi's game will be needed even more. I have other issues with Beaulieu.

So glad to see Therrian recognize the strong play of Eller by having him on the ice at the end of the game. Has not put up points but I can't help but notice how many times an intense shift by hime is follwed up by a goal from the shift following i,e. the intensity level of our game is raised. Drew a penalty and the power play scored. Bourque needs to step up to the same leve. Eller is our most effective centre against the Bruins at playoff time and to win the cup we need his size, agility and intensity. If Bourque can't handle it play Bournival; a player always at full speed and full effort.
