    Perhaps GSP will provide some much needed net presence on the PP and take some of the pressure/wear&tear off Gallagher. If so, and he proves to be effective, then the trade is a definite win for Montreal.

    My guess is that he would have been inducted into the HOF while still alive.

    Just sat down with my stuffed pork chop, corn and mash to watch the game. Got watch the SN 'analysts' compare Gally and Nails by ONLY looking at Nails' play (a shot and a bonehead no-look backhanded pass - no wonder he's a minus -twentysomething) and say "both" players need work and it's "too early to say what these players will be". Thanks for making me lose the first bite of my great dinner. I say the guy with 35pts and a +9 at age 21 looks to be a star. But you actually have to pay attention to the Habs to figure that one out.

    I'd agree with this synopsis if the Habs poor play resulted in the goals. But they did not. Perhaps the Habs did not deserve the win, but many games with Price result in the Habs not deserving a win. So that point is irrelevant. This game is simply a game where the Coyotes got some puck luck - no more. Without it - the Habs are still riding a streak. Did the Habs play well enough to win? Nope - but again, see games where Price, Carey bail them out. Except in this case - with just luck - they would have won. All in all, not a stinker. Not a taking advantage of a poorer team. Not a bad effort on back to back games. Just not a win and definitely a disappointment. Move on.

    It seems to be always about the goaltender with Montreal.... Penney, Roy, Hackett, Huet, Theodore, Halak, now Price. Price is a great goaltender, but only Roy excelled long-term elsewhere (go fig). It's about time we focus/talk more about the team in front of the goaltender.

    Weird - at no point did my login attempt work according the Gazette (I always forget my pswd because I don't use it much). And yet here I am...? Anyways - good play by Subban on the DD goal. Yep - he tripped the Duck. But hey - the NHL sucks at catching penalties, so whatever. Oh - they...yet again... made it up by calling Subban on a marginal call. They wouldn't have to if the refs could ref the game to begin with. For the record - this is why I don't mind players reffing the game - early on the players and refs had a balance. The instigator rule put the onus on the refs and they are not up to the task.

    Great game so far by the Habs. Good leadership by Bergevin. While I wasn't a fan of Therrien, he produces. All in all, it feels like management is leading the team towards excelling. I wonder - if the Gazette just allowed us to post on a game without Boone. Do you think it would significantly change the number of hits and comments on a Habs game?

    I agree. I know alot of it has to do with nostalgia, but IIRC, we could have had Muller and Robinson as assistants? Or at least Robinson?
