Pre-season is a chance for rookies to show their stuff, and hopefully make the big leagues. It must be a grind for veterans's Ethan Moreau's take on pre-season:

Ethan Moreau, for one, is glad it's over.

"Absolutely,'' said the eight-year veteran. "Training camp is not very exciting. Some guys are better at dealing with it than others, but sometimes, mentally, it's tough to get it going.

"But it's good because you don't waste any emotion, so on opening night you're excited and ready to go.''......

....."There's lots of work to do and that's going to continue on into the start of the year,'' said Moreau. "As much as you'd like to have everything in place it just doesn't work out that way.

"Exhibition is funny, it's easy to lose track of how the regular season changes the way teams play and how individuals play. It's half a second (faster) and your system play has to be that much better.''

I'm impressed with the improvements the Habs have made, and with the efforts of the younger players, but regular season is the real thing. As Moreau said, a half a second faster... But I'm very excited about the upcoming season.

Maybe some of our veterans (Audette?) have been playing possom, and will come alive opening night?
