He had a bad game against Toronto, I guess the coaches were letting him know. I'd guess he'll be back against the Sabres where his speed will be useful.

i mean seriously whitout koivu we only have plekanec as a offensive center, higgins and sergei kostitsyn have not enough experience to be throw at the center spot...

Watsatheo 04-01-2008 11:46 PM

I think he didn't play against the Sens because he's too much of a liability defensively going against the Sens last change. Spezza Heatly Alfredsson would be matched against whatever line he centres for sure.

Didn't they do good tonight?

Grabovski will be back, Carbo is just letting him know that he has to play hard every night if he wants to be a regular on this team.

kostitsyn fan 04-01-2008 11:47 PM

i just hope he will have a chance to play in the last 2 game and in the playoff otherwise i think he will back in russia next year...

Higgins did well tonight, he is smart, fast and experienced enough to play the 2-way centre role against good players.

Every shift ... Grabs has to know it's time to work hard every time he's out there, no slacking off in the NHL ... (smokes is immune due to certain circumstances, whatever the hell they may be).

I'm glad he didn't play, would have been killed. As long as hammer is OK, were damn lucky to escape that game without injury. Everyone got crunched at least once...

Did you see Higgins tonight?

He was our best player on the ice.
You do know he was drafted as a centremen

I like the job he did tonight. I think he could fill that spot as long as Koivu is out.

While that may happen, a coach can't write out his lineup in the fear that a guy might not want to be there. It may be tough for Grabovski. If Koivu is available, and Komi returns, Streit will play forward, I assume.

Begin really shouldn't sit, so if we assume that Dandenault and Brisebois come out for Koivu and Komisarek, another forward who played last night would have to sit as Streit moves up to allow Bouillon to come back ?

If one of TK,Smolinski falters, maybe, but I think that line's played well since Begin returned. It's tough, and I see how Grabs wouldn't be pleased. I guess it depends who they play.

Lucius 04-02-2008 10:58 AM

I think sitting him last night made sense.

He is a bit of a defensive liability right now and as such, it's tough to have him against a team like Ottawa when they have the last change. The last thing they wanted was Grabs vs. the big line, stuck in his own end, especially when he cannot win faceoffs.

You must be ethnic Belarus to imagine that. The Kostitsyn brothers have proven their capability but Grabovski is not on the same level.

Marc the Habs Fan 04-02-2008 11:55 AM

Grabo is probably hurt. He wasn't in uniform at the practice today and it's almost unheard of for healthy scratches the previous night to not skate the next day.

The article says he and Kovy have the flu...

I kind of hope it's true; I wasn't happy to see Grabo scratched last night.

cjbhab 04-02-2008 01:51 PM

If kovy has the flu, he should rest till playoffs.

The more and more I see Higgins play, he makes me think about Mike Peca type of player, or Rod Brind'amour, I really like what he could bring to the team playing at centre. Good solid 2-way centerman, can play on the PK and PP and fights along the boards too, well, complete player.

Confirmed:
The Canadiens held an optional skate Wednesday. Kovalev and Grabovski sat out with the flu. Hamrlik and Ryder took therapy days. All are expected to play Thursday against Buffalo. Francois Bouillon did not suffer a fracture and is listed as day-to-day. Carey Price will get the start against the Sabres. - TSN

Good... I thought he didn't like being benched and had another fit...

I really don't know what to expect this summer with his situation... I'd say it's 50-50 he goes back to play in Russia...

Luigi#17 04-02-2008 02:53 PM

I hope Gainey gives him fair money.
