Bill, there are more than a few posters around here who are convinced that the are the saviour, so you are still going to get some flying rocks...

Call it a wild hunch but I suspect that Prust doesn't sit against the bruins

It's a new feature for the people with front-row seats in the Jean Beliveau section, Shirtless Back-up Goalie Day...

So focus on Markov, got it... :-)
- Comment on Fans might need to adjust cable package to see all Habs games in new NHL TV deal (2013-11-26 12:41:10)
I think radio rights are local contracts between the team and the station. So TSN radio shouldn't be affected by this deal.

True but one of PK's rushes can singlehandledly turn a defensive situation or mindset into an offensive one. Are you going to have the same effect with a bouillon/murray pairing or bouillon/emelin? I think the coaching staff is deliberately using PK to kick-start the team after a period of time where they are back on their heels.

I checked the stat sheet for Friday's game and Tuesday's game and the same pattern was there. I haven't had a chance to go back farther. The only time it didn't happen was when PK and Markov played the last 24 seconds of a MIN powerplay.

With all the talk about PK not playing the penalty kill, has any one else noticed that PK almost plays the first shift after the kill, usually with a d-men who has also rested for a significant portion of the penalty? After Emelin's penalty, the next shift was PK and Emelin; after Briere's penalty it was PK and Bouillon; and after Gionta's penalty it wa PK and Markov (Check the Real Time Stat Sheets on NHL.com). So after a period of time where the team is in a defensive-first posture, Montreal comes back with a two rested defensemen, one of whom is an offensive juggernaut, to try to create postive momentum for the Habs

No I forgot my camera. Timo's cool. We had a nice chat. Doesn't look at all like his avatar.

that measuring stick would be a micrometer
