Thanks buddy.

If Pacioretty gets injured this season, or Gionta or Cammy, who do we have to replace them with?

I watched the games. And depending on which post you read, you will see someone state that "Trotter wasnt that great" or "Palushaj was invisible".

I love the talent that we have on this team when we start the season. I simply made a comment that we dont have a lot of depth that can come from Hamilton and not disappear.

Sorry that offended you.
You do realize that having players like AK, Eller and DD on the 3rd line is serious depth. Even Drache on the 4th.They will move up to the top 2 lines when there will be injuries.

Seriously, get a grip, Habs have one of the deepest group of forwards out there.

The game was regular season paced, the intensity level was pretty high, there was no space on the ice, guys of both team played it tight and poised.. Our C team hold their own against an almost full Sabres line-up and with a bit of luck we you have won this one.. It wasnt the most exciting game ever, but the level was pretty high for an exhebition game..

I think he could but he wont.. will have to spend another season the the AHL putting decent numbers.. but I wouldnt be surprised to see him play with the Habs next year..

Beaulieu was mostly looking at Subban on the PP, dont recall him taking a one timer, he rather setted up Subby..

He sure had a few effective zone entries. Handles the puck well

Went out to dinner last night so I had to catch parts of the game on the big screen...not really conducive to analyzing players. But it was pretty plain to see that among the rookies, Beaulieu and Gallagher were the show-stealers.

Didn't notice Avtsin once. Bummer.

If a top 6 is injured DD or AK can replace them. Very few teams have any AHL players who can replace a top six injury.

Avstin wasn't that bad actually, played well and battled hard. Good skater and has some decent moves. He had a great chance on a wrap around that Miller saved in the 2nd, showed some good patience with the puck.

I'm not trolling because I normally agree that it makes no sense to dress a full lineup in game 2 of the preseason. I think the reason is that atleast on offense, the lineup is pretty much set. There are no open spots to compete for. Aside from Adam, Foligno and Kassian, we don't really have any prospects that are even ready for a sniff of the NHL. We don't have any spots open on defense.

Aside from individual efforts from a few guys, I don't think any Sabres fans is putting much weight into these preseason victories. Frankly, with what we had on paper, our first two games should have been a blowout. Even though they weren't, I'm not too concerned, again...preseason.

I can't wait to see Subban this year. I hope the guy breaks through to the next level. Good luck this year....although, not too much luck.

Same here, I hope P.G. is looking for a right hand centre for the 4th line somewhere.

A few things I'd like to know about Beaulieu because I missed the game last night.

1. His skating laterally, backwards and forwards. I hear is back skating needs some work.

2. His passing skills/ puck movement

3. His vision of the game

4. If his errors were a lack of hockey sense or a speed of the game issue...this is really important.

1. His skating forward is excellent. He is definately one of the faster skaters. I think he still needs to work on backwards+laterally a little bit, but still he is probs at least average in those two.

2.Puck movement is very good. Made a couple very nice passes to PK on the PP

3. Excellent. Very smart player and sees the game well

Here are the names that I think are considered for the 4th line spot and the 13th forward:

Blunden
Willsie
Enqvist
Palushaj
Dumont
Trotter


Based on the 2 games I saw and what I read about everything else, here is who I think has the edge for now, in order -- of course, it is a very subjective opinion:

1-Blunden
2- Trotter
3- Enqvist
4- Palushaj
5- Dumont (would have been higher, but he wasn't a favorite in the first place)
6- Willsie

Palushaj and Enqvist (to a lesser extend) must wake up pretty soon. Another game like yesterday and Dumont may surpass them.

4. If his errors were a lack of hockey sense or a speed of the game issue...this is really important.
1 - His skating looked great. Didn't look out of place at all skating backwards.

2 & 3 - His passing puck movement and vision were definitely his strong points. He made a few really nice passes to head the rush and in the offensive zone.

4 - He made a few soft passes that were intercepted (or nearly intercepted) that cause odd-man rushes.
He was caught out of position a few times while pinching and taking himself out of the play.
He doesn't have very good man-to-man coverage in the defensive zone. Not sure if it's a size or coaching issue.

I don't think he has poor hockey sense, but it isn't just a speed of the game thing. He just needs to learn through coaching and experience.

IMO, he looked like he had a lot of potential.

I missed match yesterday because I had my hockey game. I would like to know about Avtsyn:

1- His is skating good?
2- Does he have good hands?
3- And how about is shots?
4- Does he backcheck?
5- Does he play with heart and intensity?

(only my thoughts)

1- Good skating, but not as much speed as it was advertised. But it could be because he's sometimes passive on the ice.
2- Looks like it, but not star level.
3- Didn't see it.
4-, yes, but nothing special
5- Average. Still needs work. 1 more year in the AHL could help if he wants to be better in that regard.

The real scene stealer was PK. Amazing performance.

Amongst the kids Gallagher, Dumont and Beaulieu were terrific. I personally thought Desimone showed talent and poise in during the little ice time he had.

And finally, Avtsin. He showed brief glimpses of the skill level that has some comparing him to Kovalev. A beautiful saucer pass coming out of the zone in the first period. And a near goal on a wrap around later in the game. But he also seem to lack jump and was routinely beaten to the puck in one-on-one situations. To me, he should be among the next cuts. Not that he's the least likely to eventually make the NHL--just that he's among the least ready of those out there last night...and I include Desimone, Palushaj and the like.

A bit a puck-hogger, but I think he wanted to prove JM he can spearhead offensive rush when the timing is opportune, if properly back with another reliable D.

Plus, it's not if seeing Subban handling the puck is bad thing to do if you wanna draw the audience. If he keeps improving in his showmanship flair, this team will soon be named the Subbanshow.

He can hog the puck all he wants if you ask me. He's good at it

when do you suppose the next round of cuts will be? I'm going to the game against the Bruins on Sunday here in Halifax and the more regulars that might be in the lineup, the better.
