    If the price is ridiculous than no. But if we're just talking about him as a player that you'd like to have on the 3rd line on your team in general, absolutely yes. I'd image that his confidence and interest in playing 100% fell off the moment he landed in Buffalo. If he came to the Habs he'd be pumped. ________ “It’s like when someone gets into a fight or gets a big goal. That’s how games are built. They’re built on momentum." -Alex Galchenyuk

    He can't score on a garbage team in Buffalo. His stats are pretty good prior to landing on the worst team in the league. I'd take him on the 3rd line any day of the week. So would pretty much any person in the world I'd image? ________ “It’s like when someone gets into a fight or gets a big goal. That’s how games are built. They’re built on momentum." -Alex Galchenyuk

    WOW. Great job by Stewart in that fight. I'd call it a draw! OK Mr. Bergevin, rumors are Stewart will be traded before the deadline, get it done buddy! ________ “It’s like when someone gets into a fight or gets a big goal. That’s how games are built. They’re built on momentum." -Alex Galchenyuk
  • Comment on Liveblog: Daniel Sedin scores in OT to foil Canadiens comeback (2014-10-30 19:51:06)
    I heard a couple interesting comments that you'd have to respect in regards to Lars Eller. Both Pierre McGuire and Ray Ferraro stated that Eller is a good two-way hockey player but has next to no finish. McGuire stated that many scouts have told him when you pass the puck to Eller it goes there to die. Ferraro , who scored over 400 goals, stated Eller has no killer instinct and has hands of stone in the slot. I heard both those interviews on the drive home today. And I know, McGuire is an idiot and Ferraro clown. Blah, blah, blah... ________ “It’s like when someone gets into a fight or gets a big goal. That’s how games are built.

    The conversation didn't only include Eller. They were also discussing putting Plekenec or Galchenyuk at center with Pacioretty. Back to Eller though. He was on fire when he played with the kids and also when Bourque was really going in the playoffs last year. ________ “It’s like when someone gets into a fight or gets a big goal.

    My shift has changed so I've been catching TSN 690 a bit earlier on the way into work in the morning. Yesterday and today the morning guys, along with Martin Lemay from RDS, have been fiercely arguing the whole Pacioretty should only play with Desharnais topic. Some are arguing that Eller would be as good with Pacioretty and others say no. Lemay also said it carried over to the RDS studio and the guys there argued about it all afternoon and kept arguing about it the during the entire l'antichambre show. So ya, we're not the only ones who argue about it. ________ “It’s like when someone gets into a fight or gets a big goal. That’s how games are built. They’re built on momentum." -Alex Galchenyuk

    The bubble is bound to burst soon. Eller was benched for a long stretch last night and Desharnais has been blah, like you said. Meanwhile Galchenyuk has looked impressive to start the season and Plekanec is off to a tremendous start. I think we all know that Gachenyuk will one day, probably today, be a better fit on the 1st line with Pacioretty. I don't think Desharnais is tradeable though. He's tiny and under contract for several more years. When Desharnais is on one of his hot streaks his deal doesn't look so bad but right now it would be nice to remove him for the equation and just go with Plekanec, Galchenyuk, Eller and Malholtra down the middle. ________ “It’s like when someone gets into a fight or gets a big goal.

    Connor Mckenna and his love affair with Andrew Birskshire, Corsi and his total onslaught against fighting is ultra annoying. I'm fine with him having an opinion, most on TSN 690 like fighting and others don't, no big deal. However, McKenna talks about it 24/7. He's now got this thing where he thinks people dislike Tom Gilbert because he's not physical. Mckenna loves him because his Corsi is good. He brings it up every five minutes. I personally love Tom Gilbert and don't care how physical he is. He's smooth, steady and fits well with the team. So I wish McKenna would just STFU. ________ “It’s like when someone gets into a fight or gets a big goal. That’s how games are built. They’re built on momentum." -Alex Galchenyuk

    To be fair Dipsy. I always try to admit when I'm wrong after a discussion on this site. I think Neil did purposely poke him in the eye and tried to make it look like an accident by apologizing. Didn't mean to bark at you. ________ “It’s like when someone gets into a fight or gets a big goal. That’s how games are built. They’re built on momentum." -Alex Galchenyuk
