    Hard to find a bigger Marky fan than me Ronn. For the last 3 three years I honestly found it unbelievable the amount of posters here who wanted him traded for picks, even though on most polls he was still considered a top 25 or 30 DMan in the NHL. When I see him making those quick passes that PK can one time, I am amazed. Marky has always jumped on PK in celebration when PK scores for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately I think it is only those who think Marky hates PK ( for some unknown reason ) that are surprised by the exuberance from Marky when he scores.

    Say what you will about Bob Cole, but IMHO over the last 20 plus years he is the only HNIC announcer during a Habs Leafs game that did not show an obvious bias towards the Leafs during their games on Saturday nights. No matter how many mistakes he made or makes by saying wrong names etc.... I respect him for that. "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price

    I don't think there should be any argument that Beaulieu is the more skilled DMan and Tinordi offers a more defensive physical game. They are 2 completely different DMen and I am elated we have both. It is only my opinion that I would rather have N8 than Tiny in the lineup if we can only choose between the 2 of them.

    Ah, how crazy it seems when the actual truth comes out. Did not know Darche finished 11th among forwards in PP time that season. Based on what I've heard since then I was sure he was top 3. Thank you for the research. I defended him below too but without stats to back it up. "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price

    Fair enough, but how many times does a DMan stop that pass on a 2 on 1 by laying down like that and look like a hero. His job is to take away the pass and let the tender play the shooter there so I agree he gambled too much but there should not be a bias of blaming 1 or the other on that play. It may be equal.

    But Beaulieu has more skill and he can bring a physical game too. Just because he has so much skill, people won't realize he has no problem dropping the gloves ( he's very good at it ). The unfortunate thing is that the only way we get a lineup without Weaver or Gilbert is if one of Marky, Emi, N8 or Tiny play on their off side. I've never seen Marky on the left, Emi on the wrong side didn't work out good the last few years, and I doubt they would put either rookie on their wrong side either.

    But PK's untimely pinch put Emelin in the unenviable position of a 2 on 1 whether he played it well or not. "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price

    The depth we have is a great thing. No need to get rid of anybody but it is good to know we will still be in good shape if more than 2 or 3 players get injured at the same time. Agree that Tinordi is playing good but I am a Beaulieu guy myself and it is unfortunate that we won't have both of them in the lineup unless either Emi or Marky are injured. Too bad someone can't play comfortably on their wrong side because the left looks so very much stronger than the right this year.

    It's all business today and the team discount is a fan fantasy. It's the same as a player who is in his 30's and the team turfs him for somebody younger and cheaper. It's all business and it goes both ways, players may say they want to sign for less for a championship, but I highly question it, except for the odd exception of someone at the end of their career chasing a championship. Marky and Plex are the longest running Habs, but I see a lot of fans on here the last few years wanting to trade them. MB had no problem getting rid of Gio and Josh this summer either. And those Habs had more than 6 players. The big 3 of Robinson, Lapointe and Savard on D. Lafleur, Lemaire, Shutt, Mahovalich, Gainey, Cournoyer, etc.... at forward. Can't forget Dryden in goal either. It was a loaded team. "They don't hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here" Carey Price

    I see no hurry to move him off the wing either. If it takes a few years, I'm fine with that. Very nice to have him available if Plex, DD or Lars get injured too, instead of having to move the 4th line center into the top 9.
