- Comment on Oilers vs. Canadiens preview: Tokarski will start in goal for Habs (2015-02-12 17:29:49)
So the question is: if Montreal is going to make a big move, which top 6 forward, top four defenseman, goalie would you be willing to give up? Can't get someone big for nothing.
- Comment on Canadiens given two days off; Nathan Beaulieu sent to Hamilton (2014-11-24 12:28:44)
In the good old days, Toe or Scotty would have the habs skating and passing for hours of practice after last night.
- Comment on About last night … (2014-11-09 10:46:09)
I agree. Prust is a 4th liner, who I think has lost a step in the last year or so. before last night his game was erratic and under-whelming. I think it is time to bring up one of the offensive minded ids from Hamilton and give them a chance. This was supposed to be the year of the kids.

Time to look realistically t who the team is relying on for offense. If we think Bourque and Prust are the solutions then we are in deep doo-doo. Time to sit/trade Bourque and realize that Prust's best days are behind him. I don't know where we are going to find that offense unless one of the kids down in Hamilton is ready to step up big me. But this is not a new problem. Scoring goal last year was an issue but many people wanted to pin that problem entirely on DD.
- Comment on Gorges stunned by Habs’ desire to trade him, now waiting for next move (2014-06-30 21:24:14)
I think Gorges was under-rated by any habs fans. he wasn't splashy or an offensive threat, but the team doe need a good stay at home defenseman who will block shots. I think it is a mistake to trade his guy. For what?
- Comment on (AUDIO) Habs sign Markov to three-year contract; Burns named to Hall of Fame (2014-06-23 15:43:34)
People are talking about all our d-men, but remember: we still have not signed. Without him, the rest are all second rate.
- Comment on HI/O Show: Habs will face more pressure next season (2014-06-09 16:00:52)
they once fired the coach after wining the Cup.
- Comment on “This is the tightest group we’ve ever had,” Price says of Habs (Video) (2014-06-02 11:46:08)
Let's play GM. Name players you would keep, maybes, and those you would let go. Keepers: Price, Subban, Pacioretty, DD, Gallagher, Emelin ,Eller, Galchenyuk, Weiss, Weaver, Tokarsy, Bealieau, Bornival, Tinordi Maybe: Vanek, Markov, Gorges, Pleks, Prust, Briere Gone: Gionta, Bourque, White, Boullion, Budaj, Parros The big issue for me is coaching. No use getting big name players if you don't put them on lines where they can succeed or play them at the wrong position.

I've just cancelled mine. I wonder who will cover the habs next year? TVA?
- Comment on Liveblog: Conference Final Game 2 – 3-1 loss drops Canadiens into 0-2 hole (2014-05-20 11:14:46)
I never thought I would say this but: the playoffs are showing that the NHL really doesn't care bout the skill game. Sure a team needs skill players to score goals, block shots an make saves, but what a team really needs is someone to get nasty. Not a fighter, but a nasty player like Lucic or Neil in Ottawa. Someone to go and take someone's head off if the get nasty with one of the skill players. For example, when Price got run over and put out of the serine, no one went after e Rangers to make them pay the rice for that. Moving forward we all know there will be changes. We have a good core but we still need a goal scoring power forward- Vanek isn't it. Neither is Bourke. And we need someone who is nasty. It's not over yet, but the gaps on the team are starting to show.
