White earned the callup, and had a good game also. Hope he sticks this time, as has been said here already, he has infectious energy. the kid is all hustle and grit with underrated skill. I swear this kid has been overlooked on these boards ever since he was drafted . He was solid in his rookie year last year and has been on the top 2 lines in Hamilton all year. He will definitely be needed down the stretch and in the playoffs.

I have always liked both but I am thinking that Halak's age is showing. He is a more mature goalie. He is 2 years Price's senior. He is the better goalie at the moment. I still like JM's rotation habits, should provide good competition down the stretch.

I wouldn't admit to that.

Ryan White totally deserves it, one of my favorites down in Hamilton. The Habs were seriously lacking some kind of grit in their line-up and this kid plays with more grit than anyone else on this team. His 40 hits in only 13 games says it all; that's already more hits than over half of the current players throughout the season.

What's not good to like about White? Relentless worker, great fore-checker, good speed, plays well defensively, and a fearless in your face type of player. I think he has under-rated offensive abilities, as suggest his 5 goals in the last few games in Hamilton. He's not going to score highlight reel goals in the NHL, but he has a nose for the net and isn't afraid to get dirty.
You are or should be auditioning for two different roles.

I would try Maxwell to replace Kostitsyn on the second line for a short while, and if you think Ryan White is a better-suited player for the bottom 6 than D'Agostini, I certainly won't object!

you're wrong and i really like halak. halak is playing better now, but price will be a much better goalie over the course of their careers. can we just close the halak/price threads and agree only to reopen them in 10 years

Yeah I read this and at first I was upset about it then I remembered that JM has given the players 2 days off. They don't practice again until Tuesday and don't play again until Thursday. Meanwhile, Hamilton has 4 games in 6 nights (Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday). I guess we'll see if the Habs recall him.

They may not if SK & Laraque are ready by Thursday because then we'll have an extra forward & an extra defenseman.

I'd play SK & White before D'ags or Laraque but JM may decide to go with SK and either D'ags or Laraque depending on the competition.
