But seriously, Brisebois may make brain farts, but he does have a nice transition game and he is a good option on the PP. Something that O'Byrne is not.
LOL little, very little.

Out : Dandeneault, although he doesnt "cost us", he just doesnt bring things others arent, he isnt our best 4th liner offensively, neither our best 4th liners defensively and he doesnt hit much.

It almost sadden me everytime I watch him play - he wasnt all that bad when he arrived and I remember he was the only one to want to sign here as a UFA despite us not having a good team and all...

but now ? no more room for him unfortunately.

funny thing is a lot of the newer fans have not gone through that period.. god it was bad and the funnier thing is that we kept watching every single game anyway.

To tell you the truth, the top 2 lines aren't all that bad. I don't know why, but Ulanov was my favourite hab growing up; I remember being really upset when they traded him.

Please Bouillon is as obvious a new yorker as they come

He's more of a newyorker than higgins is. He's more of a newyorker than the entire rangers franchise combined!!!

He's more of an American than Higgins is.. because I don't think Higgins has represented the United States at a World Championship event after junior yet.

Press box: Bégin - Lapierre

Dandenault (waiver wire)

this is the line up I'd love to see

Good thing you add this...

It doesn't look good at all for Chipchura, he would of already played by now if Carbonneau had any intention on putting him in the lineup.

Dandy is surely out if Laraque plays wednesday... when Higgins will come back, it's going to be between Begin and Kosto, so far Kosto deserves it more, but Begin seems to have the favour of the coach... we'll see...

...Breezer is soooo gone after Bouillon's return (and hopefully not back in with another injury)

cough, cough, gasp. OK, who are you and what have you done with Nate?

I agree that Gorges is a very steady number 4 dman.

Higgins to replace Latendresse
Latendresse to replace Kostopoulos
Kostopoulos to replace Dandenault
Laraque to replace Begin
Bouillon to replace Brisebois

Five upgrades...
I agree with that, Habs would be a better team with those moves made.

O'Byrne is one of the less physical 6 foot 5 D in the league.
I think I'm going to do a little video montage. Gorges keeps getting rid of the puck. It's ugly.

Laraque will not stop players from hitting our players...if people expect this from Laraque, they're going to be disapointed

The Bruins play physical, if our players can't take any hits then they shouldn't be on the ice, thankfully, the Habs have shown that they can take hits as well as dish them so i'm not concerned

Well, IF Higgins and Laraque are back in the lineup, I would toss Begin and Dandenault away, but there's something between Begin and Chara that is interesting, in that every time Begin plays the Bruins, he always manage to drive Chara psycho, and he gets thrown out of the game... or takes many dumb penalties...

Dandy and Kosto.

There's no way Max Lapierre is out of the lineup... Absolutely no way.
