- Comment on Habs acquire defenceman Weaver from Panthers; Price back on ice (2014-03-05 10:01:32)
Why are the Habs in this 20 year long stasis? They have forgotten the objective is winning hockey not appeasing the PQ (never seen Pauline Marois at a game), the French media, etc. Look at the incompetent coaches we have been forces to hire ( Martin, Therrian, etc). Lars Eller has real potential that will not be developed by Therrian and I also fear for Subban. If you really look at Eller he has it all; size, speed, agility and quickness. The egg line should have been left together so that all 3 of the youngsters were fully confident at to their hockey abilities. These guys are the future. Montreal is 2-3 years away from a serious run for the cup. Balance lines when you have the building blocks developed. Look at the Kings, Hawks, etc. They took this route.

Played to stay close last night; not to win. When does Therrian take of the mask and reveal his true identity ; Jacques Martin? I expect to see the little book soon. It's all that's missing.
- Comment on No changes expected to Habs lineup against Leafs (2014-03-01 10:02:45)
I see Therrian has no idea how to handle a player like Subban. If they keep screwing him around he will eventually do a Patrick Roy and I will not blame him. I see Gorges and Markov mess up and they are out the very next shift. Does Ottawa sit Karlsson when he turns it over.? No! As Nilan says Therrian is is "dumbing down" PK. The man is an idiot. You cannot ask a blind man to cut a diamond. God I wish Larry was coaching the Habs. He knows that each player is a unique entity and must be handled accordingly. Thoroughbreds are not plow horses.

Don Cherry pointed it out. As for" caught napping" if Sweden gets first goal then we are into trap trap trap. I am simply poiting out that Team Canada should not sart the gola medal ceremony to early. By thye way the Fenwick scores validate my point about Keith www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=9&sqi=2&ved=0CEYQFjAI&url=http%3A%2F%2Fcanucksarmy.com%2F2014%2F2%2F17%2Fthe-reports-of-p-k-subban-s-demise-have-been-greatly-exaggerated&ei=rRcGU5G0K8jMyQHM7oGoCw&usg=AFQjCNEZ0XBGA_eFXGkPt5YF73Ti1ev37w&bvm=bv.61725948,d.aWc

Hate to be a Grinch as to our D. as Duncan Keith was badly exposed in the 2 early blow bys. This has been there in all the games. The deteriorating ice saved him as fast breakouts are slowed gown by players having to settle the puck. The attack will come on his side as the Swedes will have noted him on tape. They will be like sharks to blood on Keith. This is their only chance. The ice will be better also as this will be the only game played on Sunday. I have absolute faith in Carey but beware. This is not over.

Agreed on Keystone. The President is probably is aware of the PK situation and would not ask the question. He is briefed on every thing. It would be interesting to hear his thoughts though as he is of African descent and would have been interested in seeing PK play as a Black Norris trophy winner is an incredible anomaly in the hockey world.

Love Price's coach Waite. I am almost certain they talked after the win and Waite already has him focusing on Sunday. Today was great but if you suck Sunday its all for naught. In the words of the immortal Satchel Paige "its OK to look back but don't stare" Go Price.

I understand that Obama and Harper had a case of beer bet. It would have been interesting if the President had asked him why no PK. It would have been more interesting if he had said no PK no Keystone. Just an amusing thought. Go Canada, Go Carey.

That was in the past and I give him that. I noted in the past games in this tournament that it has been Keith who has consistently been our high risk Dman. Just looks at the tapes. He has lost a step. If Carey does not save his ass this ia a very different game. The TSN crowd is yapping that Carey did not make any real saves. Just won't give it up. Must be a Leaf thing.

Love what Don Cherry did in exposing Duncan Keith as the weak link. The odor you smelt was Kessel toasterizing Keith twice. Carey saved his ass. It was obvious the US was going after him. They were successful in the beginning with smoother ice but as the ice got rougher it became harder to break out at full speed as the puck would not settle . Carey was so on nothing was going in any way. NO REBOUNDS.Price is a monster as all real Hab fans know.
