Budaj needs to start tonight and against Anaheim.

OP, it's Erik Cole, Brooks Orpik and Tomas Plekanec.

I think the habs will come out with a bit more edge after yesterday's clunker. It should be an exciting game. I predict high scoring.

Has AK been rules out for this one?
Nope, JM said he might play.

My point still stands. It says P%, which stands for point percentage, of which ours is .500

But it is not a winning percentage of .500, where a team wins half their games. Is it so hard to understand?

You want to have the last word ?

For the NHL (not you of course) Habs are playing .500.

The 3 OT or SO "losses" = the ties we had in the old times... But they give 1 point, anyway.

A team could "loose" ALL its games in OT or SO and STILL be a .500 team with 82 points in the standings.

Is it still too hard to understand ?

we are completely jinxing ourselves thinking we are going to win this game because these are the types of games we always win because nobody thinks we are going to win them, but if we think we are going to win because of that then we no longer have the advantage because we no longer think we are going to lose. Because of that I predict we are going to lose.

Would love to see Crosby and Malkin get out there against the Emelin-Diaz pair thinking they're easy pickings then have Emelin absolutely destroy one of them. The crowd would have to start figuring out a way to chant Emelin's name.

The Habs needs Andrei Kostitsyn badly.

Before getting injured, I thought he was our most complete winger and by consequent our best winger on our team.

My Prediction is 2-1 Habs and yet, despite a near perfect game, some of you will ***** about everything in the world.

Plekanec
Subban

Sullivan

Agreed. Easily most underrated forward on the team. Will score as many as Cammalleri for half of the price, while being better defensively, better skater, and more physical.

Some how I feel Martin (and I'm not a Martin hater) will never be the coach that gets the best of him. Hope Gauthier retains him so we don't see him become a 30-30 guy on some other team.

False. The term ".500 team" relates to an even ratio of wins to losses. The NHL stat you're reading is Point Percentage, which doesn't relate to the term ".500".

10 wins in 23 games in NOT .500, don't care what math or point system you are using. A loss is a loss even if you get a point for it, it is not a tie.

It is .500. Call it an OT loss or SO loss. It's the equivalent of a tie. Each team get's a point. Points are what qualifies in seeding. And Habs have earned 23 out of a possible 46 points. That's .500.

Habs will win 3-2 and will be 5 points out of first in the conference. Not too bad. Philly and Jersey lossed today. Habs have to take advantage of that.

This account i follow on twitter titled "NHLwiki" said the Habs have inquired about Bobby Ryan of the Ducks and have offered Cammy+prospect

Just throwing it out there for something to talk about dont know how reliable he is, interessting though since both our teams are slumping and might be in need of a change.
