    Excellent post. I'm a huuuge Prust fan, these are the types of guys that bring a team together (glue, as you point out). It's the little things he does. On 24CH last year, Prust is taking a face-off and someone is slashing Chucky to his right. Prust looks at the other teams' player and says "What the f#@! are you doing? You wanna get dummied?" The guy just stops, no chirping back, no more slashing... not because Prust is some monster that everyone is afraid of, it's that he's well known around the league, he's respected for having the testicular fortitude to take on anyone (even to his own detriment), and guys know they'll have to pay if they screw around out there. I can't tell you how much that brings a team together... for anyone who's played in a team, you know these types of guys just bond everyone together. He's absolutely worth every penny if you ask me. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    Good morning friends. Looks like Eklund is at it again... Habs are going after Eberle (E40000!) http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Eklund/Source-Montreal-Has-Talks-with-Edmonton-Regarding-Eberle-e4/1/63312 Must be a slow day at the site. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    I know I've said it before, but I love reading your pieces UCE. We think similarly about the team and players, except you are a million times better at expressing it! Keep writing, I enjoy reading them. As for MT, he's proven to me that MT v2.0 has learned and changed a lot from the first time. As you said, the team is a picture of stability and focus, with almost everyone on the team progressing at an individual level. He's done a great job, and I hope he can take them to that next level. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.
  • Comment on Eller agrees to four-year, $14-million deal with Habs (2014-07-24 18:00:09)
    I agree, I think Budaj's cap hit needs to come off the books along with Moens. That would leave us with over $5M in cap space, which means we could go after a solid scoring winger either before camp (trade?) or pick someone up at the deadline ala Vanek. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    Fantastic read as usual UCE. And you're bang on about Michael... if his head is in the right place, and he's dedicated in the gym and on the ice, he'll work out just fine. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    That's exactly how I feel about him too... not hating on him, just feel that we'd be better off as a team if he was moved. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    I see that the DD vs Pleks debate is stall raging today... allow me to jump in (I'm a glutton for punishment). Personally, and having watched both play closely for years now, Pleks just has a more well rounded overall game. He can produce offensively (you don't get 70pts by fluke), is consistently a 20-goal guy, plays shut-down against other teams' top lines (no debate there from the HIO crew), kill penalties etc. Basically your solid 2nd line C, a Bergeron-lite. DD is mostly a one trick pony... that trick being offense. I'll give the DD-lovers the benefit of the doubt and concede that he's better at it than Pleks (although many already debate this stat, what with DD getting the best winger(s), offensive zone starts, PP etc). But if you're a one-trick-offensive pony, you better put up huge numbers in that role...cause, you know, that's your main job on a teams first line with its best forwards. Now ask yourselves: does DD produce like a 1st line center in the NHL? I'm not hating on DD, but I also don't see the huge love for this guy. For those who think he's so awesome, think about this: what would DD fetch in a trade? What is his value? Is it the same as what other 1st line centers around the league fetch? The answer is no... I doubt many GM's are lining up to take this guy, and give us a huge return (that's why people keep saying Pleks would fetch more in a trade). So... why is everyone so high on him?! ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.
