- Comment on Price knocking on door of Canadiens history during season for the ages (2015-03-23 09:49:51)
I'm 32, I picked Plante. if I were to rank them right now Plante - Price - Dryden - Roy Dryden had great numbers but played behind the best NHL team in history, Roy's numbers were never great but again he played in another time, Roy did have the ability to become a wall when it counted.

Hmm, just throwing something out there to think about with regards to the captaincy. Do we need to name one? Price is the leader of this team but can't be captain. Why not continue to roll with the A's for the foreseeable future? What's the purpose of a physical 'C' on a jersey anyway? how are the on-ice duties any different for an 'A'?

It's funny how some people throw out comparisons of DSP. Why have there been multiple comparisons to Byfuglien and Simmonds, and not to players like Dustin Brown and Tommy Wingels, who I think DSP's playing style is a little more similar too.

I think refs do have some bias, but their bias is towards players specifically (i.e. Gallagher), I don't think they have a home ice bias. A possible explanation of the Home team getting more pp opportunities probably has more to do with the last change. Lesser players are bound to take more penalties when they can't help being matched up against the superstar or better players.

Little over a week away from going to see my first games at the bell center, I feel like a 6 year old going to Disney world haha. I'm hoping to do the bell Centre and Habs hall of fame tour, does anyone know if there are any restrictions next weekend because the games are matinee games rather than evening?
- Comment on Thomas Vanek and Wild up next for Canadiens (2014-12-02 13:54:05)
Since everyone is throwing out a top 6 minus DD today, my suggestion Max-Plekanec-Gallagher Chucky-Eller-Sekac Prust-DD-Weise Bournival-Maholtra-PAP

Matty I know what is going on here, PitMartin is from the future and has time warped back from 2018 he just doesn't know it. That is the only way I'll agree with him, if this was 2018 it would be reasonable to expect Tinordi and Beaulieu in the top 6 and Galchenyuk the #1 center.

Correction Chucky "could" be playing center today. Lucky for the habs they don't need him to. In his career he has won 41% of his faceoffs (sure it's a small sample size). Currently he is playing with one of the top 10 two-way centers in the league, so he has a front row seat on how to play the center position defensively while also providing offense. So far he is on pace for his best statistical season in the league playing more minutes than he ever played. All this for a kid who is still three months away from being able to order a pint in his hometown. Seems to me the habs are doing a slow and steady job of developing a great young talent in Galchenyuk.

"Frankly, his handling is shameful and continues the Habs very poor record with young talent." Totally disagree. Pacioretty, Price, Subban, Galchenyuk, Gallagher to name a recent few, they've had their ups and downs, but show me proof that how these young men have been handled have been detrimental to themselves and the team.

Cynical? Perhaps. Destroying the future of 2 potentially Great D? not so sure about that. Isn't it in Bergevin's best interest as GM of a hockey team to manipulate the development of his players to best fit the needs of the team? Hasn't Ken Holland been doing that for years? Players don't make the Wings team until they are almost guaranteed to be a solid contributor. Are Tinordi and Beaulieu consistently solid contributors yet? they don't seem to be so what's another year in the AHL when they're 21 or 22 years old?
