I say it's more of a dumb hit dumb decision.

What is Campoli supposed to do? He's losing the puck, he's trying to retrieve it and he sees Malone coming in so he doesn't wanna lose the puck.. he reaches.

Malone should have played hockey and bursted for the puck and could have EASILY won the puck.

It's a 4-1 game at the point, what is a charge going to accomplish. (Especially when it's on the offensive zone) It's a dumb move.

I don't know. He was slow to get up and with head injuries, you never know til much later if you're okay. Hopefully, he can tough it out.

Although, I also agree with those claiming Malone might not have played the tough guy all game if he had Thornton, Lucic and Chara in his face. But again, it wouldn't have prevented him from hitting Campoli.

Those are 2 different problems. People confuse them, and that's why the toughness debate will never ends!

We'll see I really hope not, because if he has an injury there is a big chance it's a concussion.

At least they have 5 days to assess Campoli.

u haven't watched any pre season games have you?cause if you had, you would know there has been a healthy dose of suspensions given out by the new sheriff for much less than malones hit.

I think Weber is trade bait bound. This has been discussed in the past, but I feel this is it.

Of course, with injuries and all, maybe he'll end up playing a lot. But right now, I look at the lineup and I don't see where he fits. Especially with Campoli and Diaz showing good stuff in the offensive department.

True look at Crosby. He went on to play then the next hit he got set off the concussion.

Personally, I don't see Andrei Kostitsyn and Weber around past February.

Wouldn't be surprised if they are packaged.

Although I have dislike AK's performance at many times. I know he's going to be a monster somewhere else.

Not his quality of play. Stuff like the trollface he pulled after throwing the opposing player's stick (can't remember who), rushing over (literally) the ref to grab a stick after his broke after a shot, just stuff he does being himself that has nothing to do with hockey.

He did do a good couple rushes and while he did nothing super flashy, he was very solid and played quite smart.

Is he playing with a longer stick than he did last season? He seems to not have as much control of the puck.

He's been pretty awful. His skating is sluggish and his puckhandling is sloppy. He's rushing his plays.

He's just not playing smart hockey right now. I'm pretty disappointed so far, he's still got time to change it around though.

It didn t stop getting Savard and Bergeron splattered.

We're too soft, and i'm srs.
Why should anyone throw rocks at you. You are 100% correct.

Last night, Tanner Glass of the Jets was running a couple of the Predator's players. So after a couple of shifts watching Glass hitting the skilled players, the Pred's coach sends out Zach Stortini the next time Tanner Glass got on the ice.

Stortini (who is a crap fighter......but none the less is better than having Josh Gorges fight and get cut) drops the gloves with Glass and takes care of business.

Tanner Glass stopped running the skill players on the Predators.

That is a simple concept that Gauthier, Martin and a lot of the Canadiens' fans cannot grasp. As soon as Malone showed that he was very interested in going after our players, insert fighter and take care of Malone.

Now we have Campoli with a head shot and Gorges with stitches.

And great game by the Canadiens tonight. Showed more passion and aggressiveness on defense. If we can sustain this type of intensity in our own zone, the Habs will do well.

However...........relax, this was just a preseason game.

Really impressed with Diaz and Spacek tonight. I thought they were our best defensemen. Really liked Gill jumping in when Malone and PK got tangled up. Much better transition game tonight, good special units. The D tonight made me breathe a little easier. I hope Campoli is ok. He was responsible for Gomez's goal, beauty feed to Cammy at the blue line there. Malone's antics all night were pretty funny, that is until he took it to that level.

Good stuff tonight all around. Diaz, again, I thought really made a case for himself tonight. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in the lineup with Spacek on Thursday they worked well together. Agreed about DD, he looked pretty bad though. So did Cammy despite scoring that late goal. Gomez looked real good though. Played like a top line center tonight.

Josh Gorges disagrees with you.

We need Gorges on defense yet he is MAN ENOUGH to step up and take on Malone. Yeah, he got cut.

You like our skill guys taking on the ********* of the League?

Or would you rather see no one on our team take on Malone after what he did to Campoli?

Pacifism may be acceptable in your world. Fortunately, we have a couple of MEN on the Canadiens who disagree with you. Unfortunately, Gorges is a skill guy fighting the battles.

We have very confident people on this board. You guys should go on the ice and fight Malone. Lets ask Gorges if he would like to have someone that can fight.

Agreed.

It's amazing how much better this team becomes with consistent puck-movement from the backend. I feel like Spacek is an underrated puck-mover on these boards...he was making crisp passes right out of the zone to a streaker forward.

Diaz, Campoli, Subban, Spacek made the transition so easy which made the Canadiens that much more dangerous on the attack tonight. It was beautiful to watch.

Mobility on the back-end is so nice to see. I loved watching Diaz, Campoli and Subban pinch while having the speed to cover themselves once the puck changed possession.

White and to a degree Moen back will help for that.

If we had a fighter on this team, all he had to do is skate up to Malone, drop the gloves and pound the hell out of him.

Instigator penalty? "Relax, its only preseason". And it would have sent a message to the other teams that you do not mess with Price, Subban or any of our other skilled players.

Yep. It's what made the difference tonight. The defensemen looked much more mobile, patient, and execution was a lot better. The result was that it allowed the forwards to use their speed as everything was executed in full stride. Diaz's play on Darche's goal was a major league play. Beautiful little dangle there and that sweet feed across to Spacek, who in my opinion, was the best defenseman out there for both teams tonight.

What I loved most was that the transition game and the speed through the neutral zone completely ripped apart Boucher's 1-3-1 style of trapping. In was totally ineffective. The Canadiens were streaking through. In fact, the move was moving through the zones so fast that Lighting couldn't even get in position to set it up.

If Markov comes back 100% and Diaz or Yemelin develop quickly...we could make a big surprise in the east.
