It could go either way. Suban might sudenly become very good, or he might be assigned to our new minor league team in the Suddan.

Patrietty might be coming around, but they already know they have an AMERICAN there, and it is not very paciorotic to favour non-Canadiens.

All the more reason to send PK there. It's tough to play with only one D, though we did try for a while when MAB was supposedly on D.

Good point. But I'd send him in the lower tier Sudanese leagues.
HC Khartoum

I'm very surprised to see Maxwell up. Would've thought Desharmais, White and Trotter were all ahead of him, depending on the role they need filled. But, that said, maybe he'll finally step up and show something at the NHL level. Bout time for it.

I was not impress with Maxwell's play. When he has the puck, he always dump it and he losses all his battle.. well he had a limited ice-time yesterday (5 mins I think) and it's great like this cause everytime he was on the ice, he was doing anything. He is not the same than in Hamilton.

Maxwell hasn't shown me anything at the NHL level. White at least hits everything in sight and isn't a liability.
I am a huge fan of White but Maxwell, despite the fact that he did not progress as a fast as I was expecting (I really liked him during the 2008-09 pre-season games), is defensively more reliable than White. On the other hand... White rocks!

Canadiens; 2009-10 hits (top10)

1. Maxim Lapierre : 134 (65GP)
2. Travis Moen : 133 (66GP)
3. Ryan O'Byrne : 80 (39GP)
4. Josh Gorges : 75 (66GP)
5. Andrei Kostitsyn : 75 (43GP)
6. Max Pacioretty : 68 (52GP)
7. Hal Gill : 61 (52GP)
8. Marc-Andre Bergeron : 50 (51)
9. Paul Mara : 50 (42GP)
10. Ryan White : 47 (16GP!)
10. Guillaume Latendresse : 47 (23GP)

Source: Canadiens; hits

That being mentioned, I can’t wait to see the line of Moen – Moore – Lapierre again; this line has “playoffs line” written all over it.

the way Moen-Moore-Sergei played yesterday I think Lapierre will have to play on the 4th line when he come back

on a checking line Sergei>>>Lapierre

Still have no idea why White wasn't called up.

As for Maxwell, although he's still young..I don't see much in his game that could make him a decent NHL player. Not impressed with him at all.

Maxwell doesn't belong in the NHL... and frankly, he's the only player, with maybe the exception of Wyman, that never ever impressed me, not even on one shift.

Desharnais, White, Trotter, heck... even Mike ****ing Glumac would be more usefull right now.

Maxwell has OK everything skill wise, but he is way too scared to actually do anything

Because every time he does, he gets destroyed with a big hit

I disagree; imo 3. Moen - Moore – Lapierre >>> 3. Moen - Moore – S. Kostitsyn


PS 22 years old (plenty of room for improvement) Sergei’s backchecking effort is not “on par” with the NHL.

Not really. Lapierre does the role of a checking line player good. He just needs to chip in a little bit more offensively.

Same here. I still don't get why White wasn't called up.

Yea he just hasn't done anything that makes me think he is an nhler yet. White would be a much better fit on the third of fourth.

Mathieu Darche said something interesting the other day. He said young guys coming into the NHL usually play to "not make mistakes" instead of playing to create scoring chances. I think that's the problem with Maxwell.

Maxwell reminds me of Urquhart. The Habs have to stop wasting first and second round picks.

Although I don't really like Maxwell, and have preferred White over him, the organization does not have a choice really.. They need to do everything possible to try to polish Maxwell. He needs to be NHL-ready by next year.. even if he doesn't start the year in Montreal, he'll most likely be the first one called up in case of injuries. He's the most versatile prospect at this position in Hamilton and he's probably the only one who has a realistic shot at playing as a regular 2nd/3rd line centre in the NHL one day.

I have to agree though that Maxwell's play has not been impressive, and right now, I would much rather see White in a 4th line role with the Habs. From what I remember from the past too, I always thought Maxwell played with much more edge and was much more comfortable with physical play than what I've seen from him this year with the Habs. I don't know where that part from his game went? Hopefully, it's just a confidence issue; him being shy and afraid of making mistakes with the Habs. I hope he's been playing much better in Hamilton.

With all the pirates, he'd have to bring along Pleks. You know, for "security" reasons, and we can't afford to lose two generational talents.

I've been watching Maxwell since the U-17's and I've never seen him playing with any sort of edge or physical game. He's a skilled player that works hard at both ends of the ice but physical he is not and certainly hasn't been at all in Hamilton from the tons of times I've seen him.

I don't think that Maxwell will ever be a fan favorite. He play a very non-flashy and passive game. I still have hope for him to produce at the NHL level and that his game will be less passive but he will never be flashy. He did not played bad or good yesterday. He positioned himself well. I've seen him crash the net on 3vs2 and he look a lot bigger than last year.

Plekanec at the same age was producing the same or even less than Maxwell in the AHL. Should be fun to know the talent analysis of Plekanec in his first 2 years in the AHL. Maybe Montreal can compare the 2 played at the same age? I'm not saying that Maxwell is better or worse than Plekanec, young players are inconsistent and hard to judge. We need to be patient this time.
