Do you watch our games? To say Nokelainen-Blunden aren't grit is silly.

Pretty much. Some are so blinded by that ECF run and the Boston series last year.

This team can play with anyone during a reg. season game, but not in a 7 game series. No way.

Agreed. But we always had a better record at this point. I love the habs. Will always support them. Getting to the playoffs in general might make us cup contenders. We are 6 points out of a spot with like and have played 2-3 games more than any other team. Unless we go on a 11-3 run with another top 5 team losing 7-8 in a row it's not happening.
All I am hoping for is for the leafs to miss the playoffs.

Hasn't it been 3 weeks since Markov's surgery? Didn't PG say 3 weeks?

Shocked he isn't back...

Not sure why you forgot the 2 Quebecers with 2 points each.

If you see the Bruins as a cup contender and not the Habs we have radically different views. I'm hardly scared of a playoff matchup against them.

Upgrade at center?

Plekanec, Eller,DD, Gomez, Leblanc , Noek

Bigger on D?
First of all I see a strong D as good skaters and puck movers but, Subban and Gorges while not huge, they both play hard and are rarely overpowered. Gill and Emelin are both huge. Markov and Kaberle do not need size to be effective

oh and another speculative stat. after maxpac's fight, habs score 4 goals in 18 minutes. more than 3 previous games combined. momentum changer? maybe

We've proven capable of playing with Pittsburgh, Washington and Boston. I'm not concerned with the Leafs or Panthers. Philly has had a number in recent playoffs, but they are a radically different team and I can't help but the think they will decline down the stretch.

Exactly what I would have loved to see happen tonight after konopka went after eller. Would help build a brotherhood around our team while promoting some confidence in our skilled players to play without worrying about the rough stuff.

Plekanec, Eller, Desharnais and Noke isn't a powerhouse defensive corps by any means but that's good balance. I like Desharnais but we could probably use a high end scoring center in his place, but those aren't easy to come by.

Carey freezing the puck. "What are you thinking sending Desharnais out against Spezza!".

you're right we have radically different views. bruins goals for / against at this point is up their with pens of 90's.
they are simply railroading the league. they have enough size and depth to win 5 rounds if necessary. they already won a cup and are on their way again. they have size at center, meanness on the wings and on D and they can score.

our top 2 centers are soft and tiny and while good skaters are mostly over-matched on the road and certainly in a 7 game series vs big teams. if and i say if - Eller somehow grows up quick than that is an advantage...
our D while mobile gets pounded down low, allows our goalie to get run and most of all can't clear the crease. if Gill played like chara we could talk...emelin is a start...guys like kaberle, campoli, weber, gill, need to be replaced so guys like diaz and subban can have more space

no more of a reach than your theory about us somehow being on par with the Stanley cup champions because we choked in a 7 game series last year
