I really wouldn't mind seeing O'Byrne and Lapierre over Brisebois and Smolinski. Lapierre not so much, Smokes played better lately...but Lapierre's style is much more geared towards the Bs than Smolinski's. Definitely O'Byrne needs to get in, and I think Lapierre will get in as well. Grabo played well Tues so the only other logical candidates are Ryder, Smoke, and Kosto...Kosto brings a bit more of a physical element so I think Lapierre should be in over Smokes.
Considering Halak is the last Habs goalie to lose to the Bruins this makes sense.
Price should play at least 4 of the next 5.
Price should play every game till end of season IMO.
Its no surprise he's our #1. So let's treat him like one.
I think he has to play the most he can and get used to back to back games in case we get some in the POs.
We can maybe give Halak a start after we clinch a spot. But id ride Price all the way till the end, unless he plays like crap of course.
All the games are crucial and we want our #1 to go into POs hot, and how many times did we hear ''Carey needs to play a lot to be at the top of his game''..so make him play a lot then.
