Personally I liked Andrei.. altough still not in his game, slowly gaining his puck control.. Pleky was awesome.. still think he will be our Datsiuk / Zetterberg, the guy doesnt stop learning, Sergei struggled a bit, but i saw the chemistry started to be created.. i really tought Obyrne was far from good.. he seem lazy out there.... is it just me.. Tanguay seem like.. he doesnt get in traffic at all.. even if its just preseason.. it was my observation, i didnt saw enough of Maxwell.. seem smart but need to be more intense and more involved, Pacioretty is a hard worker.. i saw him work hard but aint convinced by his hands so far.. granted its just game 2 and just 19 years old still... seriously there is a bunch of players i would send down now.. keep the real players.. Lapierre is not playing well.. will he be send back to hamilton like last year if chippy plays well???

anyway, intersting game.. really like our first line.. other than that it was a good effort on the first 2 periods.. but 3th we didnt put much effort.. that little Gerbe from Buffalo is he stocky or what.. but has a good rapid/heavy and smart shot more than anything... with good wheels.. intersting player to say the least.. a more fearced more skilled more powerfull Desharnais... but smaller...

I liked his transition game, the way he played in the O zone... but his defensive game scares the **** out of me.

See last year I thought the exact opposite... the D game was great, the transition game needed a lot of work.

Maxwell! I remember being one of about 5 people to vote for him as our top prospect a few months ago, its just a couple games but as long as he can stay healthy he should have a great career ahead of him, starting with a season in Hamilton.

Did Kovy not dress tonight? Anyone know why?

Maybe in english but in french it sound like that so deal with it.

Loved Pleks, O'Byrne and Maxwell tonight they were sharp.

We have two full rosters of players in camp still.... Team A played the first two games.... Team B should play the next two.

Kovy is on Team B.... with Lang, Price, Markov, Komisarek, Higgins, Lats, Koivu (injured may not play) as other noteables from our core.

6 games in 7 nights means we need to rest people...

few more.. Tanguay played this exhibition game like most of the vets in the NHL, wasnt giving a full effort, didnt play in traffic to avoid injuries..

MaxPac is a fluid and fast skater, we will need this kid in the near future to be a toughest team to play agaisnt..

Andrei was pretty solid once again, I just love the package, has some elite skills but unlike most high skilled players, he is so strong and uses that strenght so well, play a N.A. style of game..

Pleks is Pleks..

Maxwell is a future NHLer, he has to react quicker at time but the hockey sense and the skills are there.. He reminds me alot of Brad Richards, will be a fun prospect to follow with Hamilton..

Ivent been overly impressed by Weber, showed some good things but will be well served by spending time in the minors.. I liked the kid line, I think all 3 did fairly well, Aubin surprised me, he played a good game so did Desharnais and Fortier..

Flynn looked like he guy who had never play hockey before..

I'm sorry but it's pretty clear that Sergei may not have what it takes to be a top 6 forward in the NHL!! He most definitely is not a lock to start with the Habs this year!!

Lappierre plays his best hockey killing penalties...........he has no offensive skills at all........kind of reminds me of Ryder, take the puck and skate around until you lose it....

What's with people piling on Sergei? Is it only because of his number #1 fan who people find annoying? Sergei is a skilled pest type player who isn't afraid of anyone. You know, remember that guy everyone loved last season...come on you can remember it wasn't that long ago.

I love Sergeis game..............I dont think he should play with his brother though.......All he wants to do is pass Andrei the puck and other teams will easily catch on to this.
