Please fix the power-play.

The team has been crying for a big center since the days of Bobby Smith, but Vanek actually plays like one the way he dishes the puck. 2 for the price of 1.

True. But I believe the Habs must move forward with a player of his caliber on roster in order to succeed. Max-Pac can't do it alone.

Convincing Vanek to resign (or acquiring an elite player of his ilk) should be the team's number one priority this off-season. Look at the trickle-down effect he has already had on this team: 1) Gionta now where he belongs on the third line playing medium minutes. 2) Plekanec free to bring more of his offensive game alongside Gallagher & Galchenyuk. 3) Briere back to his natural position at centre. 4) Eller uses his energy more effectively on the fourth line. 5) Creating more spaces on the PP by taking the pressure off of Subban & Markov on the high point with his presence down low. 6) No more miscasting Prust, Moen, Bourque & Bournival in a top-six role.

Winner of BOS vs wildcard will play winner of MTL vs TB series. Based on bracket as opposed to seedings. http://www.nhl.com/ice/stanleycup.htm?navid=nhl:topheads

I think Price was anticipating Johansen to drive to the net and was surprised when he pulled up and fired. The shot itself wasn't perfect, but it was a helluva play by the forward to catch Price thinking the wrong way.

Earlier in the fall, there was talk in the media that the Habs were in discussion with Columbus on a trade and I speculated a possible package involving Eller-for-Johansen swap because of the Kekelainen connection. This was after Lars had gotten off to a hot start and Johansen was still searching to find his game. Fast forward four months and Johansen is maturing into a complete franchise player. Meanwhile, Eller is looking more and more like a borderline third liner. Does anyone know if he's still seeing a sports psychologist to deal with his confidence issue?

Are the Habs still unbeaten with Dale Wiese in the lineup?

The second power-play unit has been dreadful all season, especially with the back-end pairing of Emelin & Gorges. Wish the team could find room for a specialist like Beaulieu.
