Andy 05-03-2013 12:21 AM

Galchenyuk has big shoes to fill with Eller's absence. Is he ready?

Traitor8 05-03-2013 12:22 AM

habtastic 05-03-2013 12:22 AM

I think he is. He was flying out there. If used correctly (with Prust and Gally I imagine), they'll be good to go.

Who makes up for Eller's defensive game though? That's why I think Halpern has to be in, which is tough cuz White played awesome. Maybe move Moen out and White to wing?

This is my biggest concern. I'm not comfortable with DD and Galchenyuk down the middle, two centres who can't handle the defensive burden. If Halpern is there to shoulder that burden, it means less icetime to either Galchenyuk or Desharnais and my guess that it's the former that will have their ice time removed.

Does Halpern have enough left in the tank to take up the defensive responsibility in the playoffs?

Personally I want to see White and Armstrong in. Moen-Halpern-Armstrong...hoping they can play a similar role to Pyatt-Moore-Lapierre in 09-10...though the latter line was far superior. Having a shutdown line in the playoffs is absolutely key. Can't dump all the defensive load on Plekanec.

I trust Halpern on the 4th line and penalty kill. But giving him more than 10 or so minutes will probably kill his usefulness.

I say it without hyperbole the only two players who it would have been as bad or worse to lose for this matchup would have been Subban and Plekanec. And Eller has been better than Plekanec lately.

I agree completely. Losing Eller was biggest fear. He's built for this type of game and he was getting his game together this season. I think he's the most underrated hab and I think his absence will demonstrate just how important he was this season. Unfortunately, I don't want that to happen.

I'm just hoping Galchenyuk explodes.

SirClintonPortis 05-03-2013 12:33 AM

How pathetic is it that Latendresse drove the net more than most players on you team.`

habtastic 05-03-2013 12:35 AM

As mentioned, the loss of Eller makes the people who were perhaps on the fence about him recognize what a great player we have and how we is going to help us win a Cup.

Similarly (although Tinner has helped make us forget), I think (though a lot of people disagree) that Emelin is one hell of a defenceman. I really think he's got all the tools and I hate seeing him in trade proposals.

I'm focused on the present, but conscious of our very bright future.

Rscorpio 05-03-2013 12:38 AM

Price need to woke up in this game ...or GTFO



Go Habs Go we also need more trafic in front of the net...Cmon Bourque and Pac

My Velouria 05-03-2013 12:44 AM

Great GDT Moroccan! ;)

I'm super bummed out right now and not because we lost Game 1... I just keep replaying that whole Eller sequence... So sad. Imagine how his wife felt seeing that? ****.

It has always been a problem with the Habs.

Gallagher drives the net. That's why he's been playing so much in Game 1. Prust can do it but he has been playing on the 4th line. Galchenyuk, sometimes does it. MaxPac doesn't do it, neither does Moen, nor Bourque and White is on a short leash. And of course never mind DD and Plek. Gionta is too slow now and is constantly behind the play.

I think when you dearly need a goal, MT should put Prust on the Gallys line.

Wow, that is an amazing image. It's his daughter, I assume?

This is when you realize that hockey isn't everything for these guys.

Best of luck to Lars Eller. I wish him a speedy and full recovery.

Et le But 05-03-2013 01:00 AM

Moroccan is definitely the HF Habs Calder winner.

schumway2 05-03-2013 01:01 AM

If we put together a similar effort, we should win. We just need to be ready to pounce on the rebounds that Anderson will no doubt give. My only concerns are Price's performance and how we deal with the loss of Eller. Price can't give up goals like the Silferberg one every game.

68* 05-03-2013 01:01 AM

That hit made me lose interest in the playoffs. I didn't even cheer after the Gallagher goal. **** it.

Except replace Frodo with Eller of course.

Figaro95* 05-03-2013 01:11 AM

I really hope that hit, along with the sun's front page opens a pandoras box for those "pesky sens"

The Russian General 05-03-2013 01:14 AM

I hope they light up Anderson.

That's exactly how I felt, although once they tied it, I was like "At least fkin win it for Lars" and then I just started to rage.

Now I want to absolutely paste those dikbags. Habs have to dig deep, but this series is soooo far from being over. I want to win this series for that one hit. I don't care if he made body contact. I wanna send them packing. Only downside to that is to face a very tough opponent in the next round sans Eller. Must win though. Therrien needs to get everyone on that page, that losing is unacceptable and from what I can tell, he is doing a good job of it. I expect a big statement game tonight.

Can someone actually shoop that? Would be amazing not only cuz of Viggo, but cuz Eller is definitely an inhabitant of Middle Earth (although hailing more from Gondor, Rohan or Rivendell, warrior that he is. He even has a Tolkien-sounding name).

Not that we don't have our fair share of Shire natives.
