Brassard did not look very good tonight compared to previous games. He was out earlier in the week with the "flu". He said he felt worse on Thursday than on Wednesday so he isn't 100%.

Whoever made the comment earlier about the CBJ announcers being homers and sounding drunk - we think so too.

Mason looked better than he did on Wednesday, but I didn't think he was being very challenged either. The defense protected him more during this game than the Edmonton one.

And... the Jackets aren't "cellar dwellers" anymore.

This year, he's played in four games.. two games fairly close to one-another and he was superb. Then two games in a 3-week span.. he wasn't very good.

Halak is USED to being a starter.. and it's probably going to take him awhile to get USED to being the #2 guy for awhile. He rides on confidence from playing every night.. rather than sitting off for two weeks.
As far as ive seen him play, he has always looked weak and inferior to Huet including his rookie year, i do not agree at all that he single-handily did anything special that year, it really was a team effort that almost brought us in the playoff. This is my opinion. Last year he was ok in the season but weak in the playoff.

Mason > Halak.

That's going to happen, we got a point anyway.

Let's move to the next one.

Oh, and, darn, Lang better start making waves again.

Actually, that's not true considering Halak was Huet's replacement due to injury.

He had one playoff start .. wow.

Absolutely.

If the game hadn't been close, I'd have sent out Laraque to beat the **** out of that clown. Commodore has been a slug since his Carolina days.

All the talk the last 2 weeks about head shots and we have this ******* running around tossin' bows. Campbell should be looking at hits like this.

Why not send him to the AHL to devellop instead of keeping him when Denis could do the same job as a backup.

Funny since Huet has been dynamite in shootouts since his bad game vs the Preds last year, check your facts before saying **** like that.

Cause Denis can't do the same job and Halak has 2 seasons as an allstar in the AHL.

He has nothing more to learn down there.

A GAA over 4, a SV % under 850..... thats attrocious... i don't care how bad the lightning were last year... thats stats that say you don't belong in this league... The GAA i can accept blaming on the team but not the SV%

Also in 07 when the bolts made the playoffs the stats werent any better.

Ok ,what i ment by that is that i would of said the exact same thing with or without my other merged thread.(before tonight) I don't want to trade Higgins, i was making a point that his raise will likely cost us one of Tanguay or Kovalev and that in the sake of keeping both those establsihed 1st line players we should trade Higgins for something good in the long run while he is still cheap and with a high trade value, instead i got ''trade Price too while your at it'' and ''why?''

Don't talk about Laraque until you get the concept of what a good enforcer actually does for your team, i don't know why your talkng about him like that tonight cause it was by far his best game, the 4th line controlled the ice on most of there shift, Laraque was unmovable close to the net, defensmens didn't even bother trying at the end

I'm not sure but Denis would have to be placed on waivers in order to get called up right ? And if he's claimed, which is a strong possibility especially if he's playing that well with Hamilton, that would mean we would have to eat 50% of his salary for the rest of the season.

But I think we should relax before even thinking about this. Halak had 2 bad games in a row. 2. Every other nhl goaltenders had 2 bad games in a row too at least once in their carreer. Give him some more games, if he still struggles, maybe, that would be the time to consider recalling Denis. Not before.

O.K, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, I just thought you were reaching a little. My apologies.

Well, you have to read between the lines.. What i really meant is that, bring the young guys, they have more flame and passion in their game than this current talented Habs team.

We need some motivated dude playing hard.

Sorry, that's what i meant.

Give me a ****ing break with people *****ing about Halak. He stole a game for us already this year then he had two bad starts but it's pretty hard to get in a groove when you're playing once every two weeks. I find it hilarious that people here are saying he should be in the AHL, after his next start I guarantee a lot of people will be eating their words.

Denis' AHL salary is less than 100,000 so he wouldn't have to clear waivers....

But i think Halak might have to clear to go down.

Really, Denis gets less than a savvy businessman playing down on the farm?

Surprised, I could've sworn he'd get a tad more, even if this is a two-way deal.

Then, if he has, there's no way Gainey puts Halak on waivers. Many teams would jump on the occasion to claim him.
