- Comment on Habs have best record in NHL after Saturday’s win over Avalanche (2014-10-19 23:36:41)
When Parenteau was acquired, I had my doubts. In essence, he was replacing Vanek and not Briere as a top-six forward. How on earth would he handle the pressure? I was afraid he would become another Sergei Samsonov or Michael Ryder 2.0. His play thus far has really surprised me. He reminds me a bit of Robert Lang, not spectacular in any facet of his game but full of energy and sharp focus on the ice. Funny how this team has moved forward without missing Vanek's presence at all.

I thought Eller was one of the go-to guys for the shootout? Plekanec should always be parked on the bench along side Pacioretty for that event.

Even Bourque came to play. What more can we ask for!

Wish he had signed out west.

I'm beating on an old horse, but what Yzerman did tonight is exactly what Bob Gainey should have done with the Scott Gomez deal. The Rangers had to dump salary to sign Gabrorik at the time, yet Gainey offered Sather full-value compensation in the trade. I still can't get over it.

Gionta's only goal in these playoffs was scored on a rebound off of his own breakaway in Game One vs Tampa. I don't remember the last time he beat a goalie cleanly with a shot. I expected no offense from him when the playoffs began and he pretty much hasn't disappointed.

It's remarkable how he has kept his cool despite all the hits from fans and media alike this season. Imagine if the team had signed Lecavalier instead. Not sure if Vinny would have brought the same class and leadership qualities to the table you speak of.

Vanek was invisible before Briere's goal. Gionta was simply ineffective in every way.

I believe Mario Tremblay & Benoit Brunet both suggested Therrien should replace Beaulieu with Boullion for the next game, since the former isn't trusted to play much late in a tight game.

I'm sure if Gionta weren't wearing the 'C', he'd be sitting by now.
