Any chance of Jimmy Bonneau playing for the Habs for the extra toughness?

Bonneau is a terrible AHL player.... He is a total defensive liability in that league.... its like a PK whenever he is on the ice. I definetely don't want him on the habs.

Check his hands on the set up he got from Kostitsyn(I think) early 1st, instead of trying to swat in a backhand, he handcuffs himself trying to take it on forehand. If Grabovsky had Lats hands, he'd be Datsyuk which he clearly isn't.

I just hope that in the final 2-3 games the playoffs lineup will get to play together...
I want to add something to your comment regarding how ''lucky'' we have been this year... regarding injuries...

we have a young team, so that really helps ...

since we had a good start , we just kept the pace and we were able to rest players on a weekly basis.

our top players like kovalev, koivu, markov are granted more days off this year...

I really don't think we are an injury prone team ... but I think also Carbo and Gainey succeeded in creating a schedule that significantly reduced the risks of injuries...

that's really good news for playoffs too.

Scratched; Brisebois, O'byrne.

I would rather scratch Smoke as well to get a real tough 4th line to play against and a one that will bring energy.. Begin Lapierre Kostopoulos looks good to me.. You still can switch Lapierre and Begin but I like Laps at center more..

Bégin-Chipchura-Lappierre looks even better, Lappy is a better tehn center then Bégin but Chipchura is much better then both, Lappierre can use his speed alot more on the wing and Chipchura is better at closing center ice, he's probably the most intelligent player we got defensively, he doesn't skate for nothing, those 3 CAN become a real shutdown line, i know the season is far from over but i can't wait at next year, there's so many players will be better it's unbelievable.

Streit has to be on the fourth line so he can play the PP.

Give him time besides his main job is to fight.
