I wish I could agree but the habs played down at the same time the devils played up. price had to make too many big saves to keep it close as it was. It is a pattern repeating itself a bit too often, which includes the lack of PP success

We are supposed to be a better team than NJD, especially with marty out.

O'Byrne signed his first pro contract at the age of 22.

According to this, a player who signs his first contract at 22-years old, has 3 years of exemption unless they play 70 or more NHL games.

Right now, O'Byrne is in his 3rd season and he has played in 56 NHL games (52 regular season, 4 playoff). This, as far as my understanding goes, means he can be sent down, without clearing waivers, until he plays 14 more games this season.

However, next season, if O'Byrne was not to make the team out of training camp (or at any point of the year), he'd have to clear waivers to be sent to the AHL.

Devils fan here with some notes from my trip to Montreal...

1. You're city is the NICEST city I have been to in a long while. Everyone is so courteous and shows amazing hospitality.

2. You Habs fans are a wonderful bunch, I was in Section 435, Row B, Seat 11, and the people around me were GREAT. I got a fewww boos (I was wearing an Elias jersey), but overall, the atmosphere was amazing. Best overall in the arenas I have been in so far. I think us Devils fans put up an atmosphere similar to that once, maybe twice a year.

3. Your new scoreboard is masssssssssive! Wow.

4. The young woman who walks around the stadium doing interviews/contests/etc. is also quite the looker... (as well as the girl during the "guess the temperature game", the blonde one).

5. Canadian beer is pretty good stuff, I like the Rickards. I will never buy hard alcohol on the rocks there ever again though... they don't give enough for what I pay.

6. GoGo lounge = fun times. Lot's of older women, but a few youngins. Great martinis by the way.

7. Poutine = absofriggintastic. In NJ, the only thing we have that is comparable is our Fat Sandwiches in New Brunswick. But it was amazing. I got one at La Belle Province, I think. On Saint-Laurent near the Scotia Bank.

8. Crepes ---- see 7. I had a chicken crepe and it was yummy.

9. Saint-Catherine, and Drummond... fun times. (Strip clubs included)

10. French-Canadian women are something else. A good something else.

You guys are great. I had a fun time there. If any of you are coming down to Newark when the Habs visit, then we should have a bit of an HF meet up.

Thanks.

What's with the hate for Kovalev?

Yeah, he's struggling to score, but at least he's putting forth an effort every night and generating chances.

For those who whine about lazy penalities, the one late in the 3rd, he was battling for the puck after it bounced over his stick. I'd rather than than not give a crap and lose all his battles.

It's like somebody replaced the legs of Plekanec in the off season and gave him the legs of a 90 years old man. That guy used to be a rocket, flying like you would not believe, taking the other teams by surprise.
What physical strength did they use? They have a bunch of quick forwards that give us a hard time Parise Gionta etc The first half of the game we were always 1st on the puck, 2nd half they were.

Plekanec is always curling towards the blueline instead of attacking the net. Tanguay has been doing it since the start of November. They are skating fine but never using it to generate scoring chances.

They idea of playing the trap like they do it having big forwards that are strong and big enough to maintain the system particularly along the boards. It's praticaly impossible to play againt. And I think Parise and Gionta were never a factor in the game. The only way you can beat that system is to you use trememdous speed because that's all they have that system. The Habs used their speed last year against them and they were fairly easy to beat. But the Habs this year have zero speed. Plekanec is a shadow of who he was. I've never seen him once make these high speed rushes that he kept doing last year, taking the opponants by surprise. And even though it sort of has worked well so far Andrei playing with Saku and DAgostini won't work well in the long run. Andrei needs to have guys that will keep up with him. That's why he and Plek together last year was like dynamite. Hell on wheels. But Kovy has slowed down and that's why I think that line didn't work much this year. Maybe having Sergei on the right would do the trick.

Hating fans happens. The ones I met were great and friendly, but still ribbed me a bit... as expected.

But you will never catch me saying that about the majority of Flyers and Rangers fans! They are awful.

If you come on down for a game, let us know on the Devils board. We're a pretty chill group and look forward to meeting fellow HFers and hockey fans.

Thank you again.

My Weekend in Montreal!

Well I just got back from spending the weekend in Montreal with my girlfriend. We both had a blast. We arrived a little late on Friday so we went out for dinner and hit the Casino. Saturday was shopping on St. Catherines & the game Saturday night! We were in section 110.

Pierre McGuire was sitting in the row behind me. I wasn't sure it was him at first but as I was walking by again I noticed the TSN jacket and said hi.

The game was kinda boring. Habs looked great in the first, okay in the second and the third was mostly NJ. Price looked great in net aside from the first goal. It was pretty quiet compared to the last time I attended a game at the Bell Centre though the Molson Ex zone seemed to be rocking all night long. My girlfriend was disappointed she didn't get to hear a loud "Ole" chant.

After the game we decided to walk back up Crescent on the way to our hotel. When we hit St. Catherines this guy started talking to us cause he noticed all the Habs gear I was wearing. He asked where we were from, how long we were staying, what our plans for the night were etc. At the end of the conversation he said "By the way, my name's Foster Gilette & my family owns the Canadiens. Thank you for supporting the team". I didn't really believe him at first but when I got back to the hotel the curiosity got to me so I did and image search on Google. It sure did look like him! Kinda wish I attempted to chat it up a bit more.

Can't wait til next time! Go Habs Go!
