- Comment on Brière will be in Habs lineup against Lightning (2013-11-12 14:53:54)
I like it and I bet we see that lineup at some point. Bournival was sparking that line with Pleks and Gionta for a few games. EGG line is obvious. The question is if the other line would actually use their size consistently. Although they have it, it's not exactly what they are known for.

So we have the EGG, B, C, D lineup tonight. EGG Line B = Briere, Bourque, Bournival C = Max, Pleks, and Gionta the "C"aptain D = White, Moen, and "D"umont Drum crash.
- Comment on Habs deal Cole to Stars for Ryder (2013-02-27 09:56:31)
Cole had a hell of season for the Habs last year, but Bergevin robbed Dallas on this one. In return he got the same production, a third round pick, and badly needed/extremely valuable flexibility heading into the lower cap. Shrewdest move by a Habs GM in a long time. Well played, Sir.

Help - For someone in U.S. who doesn't get TSN is there any way to get the Habs documentary?

I love the aggressive play and from player's comments you can tell this is how they've wanted to play. They are responding to it. Emelin just hesitated and then made the wrong choice. Mistakes will happen.

Last night's loss was as maddening as they come, especially coming the night after losing another winnable game. But cats and dogs aren't sleeping together and our pet's heads aren't falling off. This team is infinitely better than last year on all accounts, will likely make the playoffs, and is a refreshing joy to root for. And that was a team loss. What was more egregious? White meaning well and standing up for the team, but taking bonehead penalties in the process or Emelin's hesitancy and ultimately ill-advised pinch that led to Buffalo's 2nd goal? That was a pretty awful play at the blueline. Or how about the first goal that Budaj should have stopped, but was still a legitimate scoring opportunity (Team defense)? Yes, White's penalties were costly, but they came from a good place. He's going to be an important part of this team moving forward and the moments where we appreciate him will vastly outnumber the others. I like this team a whole lot and its future a whole more. That includes White.

Any chance the scrimmage will be streamed online?
- Comment on RFA-offer deadline looms for GM Bergevin (2012-06-25 13:33:03)
Looking at Cap Geek and what a year 2014-2015 could be. Excepting an unlikely prior trade, Kaberle's, Gomez's, and Markov's contracts all come off the books and in the case of Kaberle and Gomez, their skates off the ice. At the same time this year's draftees should be NHL ready.
- Comment on Canadiens prep for western swing (2012-03-05 13:09:45)
In nearly every article it is essentially stated as fact that Gauthier will not be the GM at season's end. While it is obvious that Gauthier should be fired, has it actually been confirmed that this will indeed occur? Outside of knowing that it "should" happen, do we know that it "will" happen?

And if you asked the Bruins if that worked out for them liked they had hoped they will unanimously tell you it did not, which is why they did not sign him. Think it through a little more.
