    I notice N8 is not one of the players at the optional morning skate. I checked here and canadiens.com and see no mention that he has been sent down yet. Has anyone read or heard anything? "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price

    I don't think the team getting blown out the odd game has anything to do with a leadership void. In the words of Herman Edwards "You play to win the game". This team has a lot of character and has found a way to win every close game they have been in ( except for an OT loss to Vancouver, and I thought some brutal calls cost them that game ). If on the other hand, the team gets down too many goals, has a few bad breaks or makes too many early mistakes that the other team capitalizes on, sometimes they lose their compete level. If the lead appears to be insurmountable, the other team may get a few garbage goals. It doesn't matter in the standings if the team loses by 1 goal or 10, and the standings are all that matters to a team. Stats are important to only individuals. I played goal for nearly 40 years and I obviously never played anywhere close to a professional level, but I was the most focused and played my best in close games. On the other hand I found it harder to focus when my team had a large lead or a large deficit. It is not intentional but deep down you know a goal at that time is not going to change the outcome of the game. The team only has 5 regulation losses, I could honestly care less that they were all by 3 or more goals. "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price

    Word on the street is the Habs can't compete against elite teams. Is St Louis not elite, or were people maybe wrong? "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price

    Nice hesitation by Weise. Gave Shattenkirk time to take out Allen after he coughed up the puck.. "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price

    Just great. A kid playing in the NHL for the 1st time in front of his parents. Likely he stands on his head. Too bad Fredericton is only an 7 hr drive to Montreal. "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price

    Canadiens.com has Plex at 5'11" and 198 lbs Mr. Boone. I think you are short changing him a bit. "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price

    I think there will be a hurry next season though. I think they will be waiver eligible then. There is no guarantee right now that N8 or even Tiny later, will not be able to take spots from a few of these older guys this year.

    so we can't even retrieve the Live Blog by clicking on Boone's Live Blog on the blue bar at the top. It has really disappeared. "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price

    Who cares who he is, we got rid of Bourque's Cap hit next season and that is huge. He could of been claimed on waivers a few weeks ago. "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price
