- Comment on Habs get a well-deserved day off (2013-12-06 17:56:59)
Have not been keeping up with my HIO reading lately so apologies if Friedman's 30 thoughts has already been gone over but being a huge Koivu fan I enjoyed this: "6. Murray told me a great story about the team's captaincy selection. The players voted and Getzlaf and Saku Koivu got the same number of first-place ballots. So they went to second-place selections and they tied again. Murray went to Koivu, who told him the team had to choose Getzlaf and promised to help. The new captain rose to the role."

As are the officials and league who condone that behaviour.

Crosby has skill to burn, character to question.

Sorry, but isn't Selig the judge who handed out the suspension and the league is the accuser? In which case, the league can send any rep it sees fit and A-Rod does not have a right to confront the original judge ... at least as it reads. This is not a vote of support for Selig but an "ask" of clarification on "due process" ... because if I am right, then A-Rod is even a bigger douche bag regardless of whether the process is effed-up or not because A-Rod needs to "play the game according to the rules". Changing rules, whole other ball game as it turns out ...

The prospect of getting Emelin back is exciting but I want to see Beaulieu back too. He can be dressed as the seventh D but I think the team needs him as an option. Puck moving and creating offense is sorely lacking on this team as has been well discussed. Markov, Subban and sometimes Diaz. That's just too easy to neutralize when you are the other team. Throw in another component in Beaulieu and the other team's game plan is less attainable. I know he is learning and growing but there is clearly room to groom younger players on an NHL team. And the "veteran" league is also starting to shift both due to dollar concerns and the fact that a lot of hungry young talent is showing how effective youngsters can be in this league. Montreal needs to score more and if your defense is not helping spark the offense it is just that much harder.

Damn this sharp stick. It keeps poking me in the eye!

Yes, your proposed lines do make sense. I'd like to see Eller in the PK though. Perhaps in place of Moen or Gionta.

Did not get to watch the game and happy they got the win. Also happy to see MT finally shuffling lines towards the ideas so many posters have suggested on here over the summer: namely putting Eller with Max (though I had no problem with the EGG line) and dropping DD to third. But while being cautiously optimistic about MT last year, I find he moves toward solutions like a glacier. And sitting Tinordi for the Calgary game is the kind of Junior coaching tactics that really escape me. Letting the kid get back out there to fix his mistakes on the ice rather than dwell on them in the press box would be preferable.

What a great pass by Gionta and shot by Bourque ... vets aren't so bad, eh? But really, if you don't wanna have Eller's babies, you are not a Habs fan. : )
