While I think the Habs are going to win, the Isles have been battling teams every night. Right now the Isles have Witt, Martinek, Meyer, Sillinger, and Dipi out. Also Bailey. Nobody knows anything about their true status do to the Isles injury disclosure (lower or upper body injury).
I am looking forward to seeing Danis, as I really believe he is better than MacDonald. Streit has been playing very good on BOTH sides of the ice! Probably better than Redden has been on the Rags. But yes much of this team is has beens or AHL level players.
On the Isles side, Okposo is starting to show his game, and Nielson has had spurts of good play lately. I think the Habs will burn the Isles pp by getting a pk goal as the Isles have been playing Weight at the point. Best of luck, but not too many of the ISles fans are going to get super upset at a loss, as many of us want Taveras or Hedman next year
I guess Toronto is still putting up decent ratings, so they changed their minds.
Apparently they have some Habs games scheduled for broadcast later on in the season, but damn, throw us a bone or two early on. Surely they must know of the resentment toward's them from the fans of every other team but you-know-who(s)?
HNIC keeps getting more and more pathetic. When Grapes is gone I doubt I'll ever tune in again.
