Hopefully Marky is okay. I suppose if hes Hurt Gauthier will do a move to get a PP orientated defensemen. Great to see Gionta,Cammy & Pleks dominate. Still waiting on Gomez

And what else to say on PH.D Line? Its just a solid line from hair to toes!
I was one of those people who wanted us to keep Halak, not necessarily to trade Price but to keep Halak if possible. We didn't and honestly I like the return we got. That having been said it was never really a big deal. The way I saw it and still see it now, we kept one of two goalies with a very bright future in the NHL, it was a win/win for the habs and to be honest if management thinks Price has the higher ceiling or was the better choice I support their decision and from that day I've backed Price 100%.

Before the trade it was tough to understand who the management was going to keep. I think what sealed the deal is like a lot of people said Price had never really played badly he was just unlucky and lost a ton of games last year, he was more experienced and just on the cusp of entering his prime. They decided to roll the dice on the bigger more experienced goalie with the pedigree.

Looks like the decision was smart, we got Eller and Price ever since has gotten better, he's more confident, he's been superb. I really can't wait to see how he does after a full season and post season
