He must have meant Jaroslav Hlinka who was with the Avs in 2007, who is still alive and playing in Europe.

I didn't know it was Ivan Hlinka but there's an Ivan Hlinka memorial tournament for the U18 every year, so I guessed that if there was a memorial tournament for him, he must have been dead. Wikipedia told me he died in 2004 in a car accident.

If the Kovalev line continues to be modestly productive, I would not be surprised to see Lang move to centre between Kovalev and AK and see Pleks move down to the 3rd line!

Am I assuming too much too soon?

He's looked great so far, but I was never concerned with his regular season performance.

We need Manny to deliver us from evil in the post-season.

Cause I'm just that good.

What I meant was the little things that don't show up on the score sheet.

Yeah, you are..

Even last year it took a bit of time for that line to click but Carbo never broke them up which led to the great season they had afterwards. Be patient, they will come around. And moving Plekanec to the third will do what exactly, give us 2 scoring lines? Kovalev Lang Kostitsyn seems pretty slow to mee, at lease Tomas moves his legs a bit out there to create things.

I'm in awe of Lang. And big mistake of the coaching staff having stopped making him play on the PP. In the Toronto game, with Lang on the PP(a righty to boot) we looked invincible. I don't understand the logic behind not only putting Plek or Andrei instead but not even playing him on the second unit...?

The guy has had 8 straight seasons of at least 50 points. If it's surprising to you then maybe you should follow the NHL a little more closely.

I always liked the acquisition of Lang...it gives up great depth down the middle...and he's not a liability!

Lang has always been close to a Kovalev level. He isnt the sort to pile up the points after the team is ahead and often prefers to be a secondary player but he has vision, soft hands, size and good puck protection skills. He was a steal. If this allows the Habs to steal JayBo at the deadline as a rental at the deadline with trading only prospects other than McDon and Pacs then the habs would have an elite Dman which can change a game. We dont beed talk of one two three four Dman roles. A star Dman added to the mix moving the puck up would make the Habs be in the same league as Detroit if Carey develops. The Habs obviously cant afford to sign all of their players next year anyway but to have many stelled in surely some will stary eg Komi, saku, jaybo, lang etc
