I know that the deadline was yesterday, but can we give Montreal a 1st and Noel for their coach while they're in town?

I'm not one to chase Noel out of town, but Montreal SUCKED last year, and with very few on ice changes, look at them now. That's the guy I want on my bench. The "losing attitude" from last year sure hasn't slowed THEM down.

Anyway, I hope we win, but I'm not sure at this point.

I hope Burmistrov plays a good game and gets put on a line with Kane. I think they could be good together but Burmi has to stop being selfish and pass to his 4th line linemates who can't keep up, and get some assists before he gets bumped up, I expect.

Noel isn't a bad coach, but some of his decisions, like riding pavelec to death when by all accounts, Montoya has played pretty well when he's been called upon this year, and making young guys earn top six spots from the 3rd/4th line, when playing 5 minutes and with scrubs for linemates, (I.E. basically the worst spot to "make yourself look good" from) just don't make any sense to me.
