I agree PK is more high risk but you know what, almost every single time PK has tooken a chance, he didn't rely on someone to correct him, he fixed his own mistakes.

He's so fast that when he gaffes, he can catch the other players, most dmen aren't that fast.

Don't get me wrong, Markov is miles ahead of him and its going to take a career of passing his own potential for Subban to be in Markov territory, its just the raw skill that intrigues me.

AK46, the beast is unleashed. Love it. Gio also scored a sick goal, very good games from him and Gomez.

I'm sick of Martin ****ing with Pouliot and Eller...

Yeah, but I hope its just not because of his contract being up. I think playing with professionals like Cammalleri and Plek this year is going to really pay off for his work ethic.

The one thing Subban has is work ethic. The fact he's so fast is a huge bonus. Our PP will be better when Markov comes back. Subban has always been the shooter..not the playmaker. Even in Belleville, he would pass it up the ice and wait for the pass to the point and then let it rip. And for those thinking we need a shooter, ask Carkner how hard P.K. shoots.

They were so negative you'd think we lost the game.

Yet we scored 4 goals on 40 shots which is pretty good offensively. There were many great chances that did not go in yes, but people (especially terrible antichambre analolysts) need to understands chances are good probabilities of scoring. Even friggin Ovechkin can miss an open net, hit a post or shoot on a guy who happens to fall on the scoring lane at the last second. Even if a good scorer has like 20% chance to miss on a good scoring chance he can miss five chances in a row without it being his fault.

There are so many random factors in a hockey game its not even funny.

After tonight, Spezza should be added to the list in joining Crosby and Derek Roy on the Canadian synchronized diving team for London 2012.

That's mainly what I love about Subban. He's obviously a lot more flashy than Markov. He was touted as a physical beast and he's always lived up to that reputation. He has a ridiculous supply of energy. I heard in L'Antichambre that Subban was skating circles during the TV breaks getting the crowd to chant his name!

You just know he's special. With more experience down the line and some mentoring from Markov, he could learn to be more patient during the PPs and control the play more effectively. But I don't want his style to change. His skating ability is so great he must use it to his advantage.

I'm not expecting miracles but I wish at least one of those 2 takes Moen-Darche-etc.'s place for good on the top 2 lines. I found Pouliot showed somes flashes tonight.

I'm very happy with Price. Comes out on top of a game with important shifts of momentum. At home to boot...

I'd rather have MAB than Spacek or/and Hamrlik.

JM asked in the post game about what he had to do to keep AK46 rolling.

His response....it's a contract year isn't it? that's pretty good motivation.

pretty funny quip for JM

So far, the best parts of the Halak trade are 1) revitalizing Price, 2) saving enough on the cap to re-sign Plekanec, and 3) getting Eller. Eventually, the Habs will get their money's worth from Eller and it will be win-win all around,

Andrei impressed me by his speed and and defensive awareness tonight. He looks as if he has lost some weight. Both off his body and the dead weight of his brother. He seems so much faster than last year....Is it just me? He looks like a much better player.

Great game by the team imho!

The defense limited the number of shots, for once. The offense was peppering Ottawa with good shots all game. The PP also looked dangerous and its a matter of time before the pucks start going in (its better than the stats indicate).

Price could have stopped one or two of the goals against but he held the fort in the third. Overall its an average performance for him but we can't expect him to stop everything every game. Meanwhile he and the team won despite him not having to steal the game, which is what's important in the end.

Its a pleasant win to have, especially versus a division rival that should battle with us for a playoff spot.

Oh, and Kostitsyn is awesome! So is Plekanec

A couple points:

- Why not try Kostitsyn's shot on the point. If he continues to play this hard (backchecking especially) he may not be such a problem playing at the point. If not him, why not Cammalleri?

- Please play Eller with some players with skill and hopefully at center. Be it Boyd or Poulliot, let Eller play with someone that can work with him. I like Lapierre, Halpern, etc, but they don't mesh well with Eller. The way they played with Moen is where they shine and Moen helps them. It seems the team is lacking someone to play RW right now (Moen, Pyatt have played out of position). I think I remember hearing Boyd has played RW before.. but I could be wrong. Halpern is an option, but he's done very well in the faceoff circle.

Pyatt-Eller-Boyd
Moen-Halpern-Lapierre

Or if you want to put Moen with Gomez and Gionta again...

Poulliot-Eller-Boyd
Pyatt-Halpern-Lapierre

HE's rfa so he will get an offer, the question is, can ak perfrom so well that he gets an offer so big that we can't refuse the compensation.
