come on Mr. Boone, give the Habs a period at least.

Never been much of a Vanek fan but I'm more than willing to become one. Regardless of personal feeling every Montreal fan has to be a little excited about the acquisition of high scoring forward with some size. It is exactly what we were looking for. I don't even care about next season, we have 20 games to see how much difference an additional scorer will make. I'm pumped.

That would be great.

Ask Therrien. Won't help the team that's for sure. Maybe it will shake up Eller though. At least he's still on the team. Tonight's game might be a bust.

I remain a big Eller fan and believe he has super potential that I'd like him to develop here instead of somewhere else. He's a big strong young cheap center and I hope he stays on the team. As for Bourque, he has talent but rarely displays it and I believe he might be moved. I'm sure that there is much more interest in Eller though.

The Eller line with Prust and Bourque has been building some chemistry and generating chances. The new fourth line looked really good last game. Briere doesn't look as bad as usual on the Pleks line and our top line is getting some good looks too. Our defence isn't crapping the bed as much. I like our chances, 4-1, Montreal.

Plenty of comments about Eller today. I really like the guy. He's big, he has soft hands, he skates hard, he hits, and he's a great stick handler. Yet Therrien with all his talk about rewarding players, keeps giving him struggling wingers to play with, and no PP time except for the occasional last 20 seconds. You can tell the kid is being broken out there. If you don't want a guy like Eller on our team, then what do you want. There are plenty of smaller players and Bourque types out there, and I don't see Bergeron moving Eller to get more of them.

I agree, Bournival and Eller are two of our young forwards who play with some grit. I would like to see Bournival and Eller with Pleks on the PP.

I'll be watching as usual but I don't really care if they win or lose. I will be happy if they win but if they lose it's one more nail in Therrien's coffin. Small price to pay.
- Comment on Desharnais will be game-time decision for Habs (2014-01-16 16:28:21)
I think a lot of Habs fans would agree with you that many games are painful to watch. They are a New Jersey type team now (except they don't work as hard). That being said, I still look forward to them playing whenever there is a game on. I think a fan has to put up with a weaker team sometimes, especially if you've been a fan of the same team for 40 years. I have hope for the future!
