With the first overall pick, the Montreal Canadiens are proud to select, from the Russian less than elite league.... Alexander Rotukokov.

How ridiculous!!!

Price had a good game, we would have been out of the playoff pic by Xmas it wasnt for him.

How many goals did we get in the shoot out to help Price!?

He is our MVP ... No doubt about it!!!

Without any doubt MVP or top three every game.I can't wait to have a veteran defence in front of him,another three years and the Habs will have the best defence in the league.

He had 2 coffees and some wings from his seat in the press box. He was serving the last game of his 5 game suspension. He plays tonight against the Rangers.

The Habs played really good,but Bourque didn't finish his suspension until last night's game.He starts tonight against New York Rangers who beat up the Leafs in Toronto and will play in Montreal tomorrow.Another power forward can only help the cause for the Habs,the team is starting to look like an NHL size instead of an AHL affiliate.Adding Cole and Bourque certainly will take pressure off the smaller players and put it on the opponents.I'm glad to see Gauthier doesn't allow his team to be pushed around,Blunden and Nokelainen have helped the forward group immensely.I really can't wait to see Gomez shipped out he's been a disappointment since he arrived and Eller has more than showed he's a capable centerman along with Desharnais.Can't wait to see how physical Bourque will be.Apparently on a line with Plekanec and Blunden or Cole from lines in practice yesterday.

We scored 0 goals on 3 shots and you're blaming Price? He stopped 66% of the shots, what else do you want?

I was looking forward to Gomez' return, but he was awful. So many bad turn-overs.

I really hope they're show casing Gill and Campoli because this Emelin-benching is frustrating.

Any goalie who doesn't stop 100% of shootout shots is NOT clutch.

It's not just because of last game it's more combined with the 14th other time his team managed to give him a lead and then he couldn't make the big saves

Even if we want to win some games we will have a top 10 pick for sure there is no doubt about it selle all the vets that holds some value Gill Moen Gionta (not likely now but next year) for picks and then draft Grigorenko bring in Roy sign two good UFA and do the same as the flyers did.

I think gauthier will not good before he makes another big splash and i'm afraid of what he could do.


There is one thing that i just don't understand in everyone this year why are you always covering Price when we lose. I don't want to put all the blame on him but to lose 19 advances and lose this year i'm sorry but the goalie has some part in it.

The guy won 3 molson cups why not give one to Cole Price has been nothing but shaky this year, i agree there were some bad bounces but he wasn't good. 913 percentage is weak and 2.45 is decent but not magic. The habs have played better defense than offense this year for sure but Price managed to lose at least a dozen games by his poor showing.

I really like Price and i think he should be resigned but he has a large part to take in the woes of the habs this year but instead everyone is victimizing him for no reason. The guy can't stop a puck on shootouts takes a bad goal 1 game out of 2 and can't make the big saves to salvage the leads.

I know i'll be labelled as a Price hater but that's not the case he has been mediocre this year for what he his capable off and without Price this year we would be at worst were we are now and at best in the playoffs.


Imagine if we had won just 50% of the 19 times we had the lead and lose that's 18 more points that would put us at 58 now and we would be top 5 in the east. It's funny how it could have made the difference. I know the goalie is not the only one to blame on those lost they were bad performances by the defense no backchecking by the offense but still it's Price that couldn't make the big save to salvage the lead like he did last year.

What i find sad this year is that the opponent of the habs just need to play 15 good minutes of Hockey to win the game but the habs if they don't show up 60 minutes they can't win, they lack confidence and finnish seriously last night we owned the sens for the first two periods but we couldn't score a goal (except the the bs interference one). The sens played for 15 minutes and the third and it was enough. That's pretty unfair IMO but the habs couldn't score a goal if their lives depended on it.

You guys are dreaming. Habs won't finish in the bottom 3 and probably draft between the 8th and 11th spot.

You're probably right. We may even go on a run once Bourque gets here and make a run for 8th. Management has indicated that we're going for the playoffs so I wouldn't at all be surprised to see more short term gain moves coming.

And everyone (including myself admittedly) wrote the Sens off as a team that was going to be bad for a long time because of last year.

In a league like the NHL it takes a few things going wrong to make the entire bottom collapse. If anything there is only a few consistently bad teams year in, year out (until they suck long enough to build) while almost everyone else goes up and down quite easily.

I think that was the season where the team won 7 in a row down the stretch, while setting the league record for most man games lost to injury at the time. That team was gutsy though. They did more with less.

This team, despite all the injuries, is miles ahead of that team in terms of talent. I'm much more disappointed by this team.

I think the habs will finish just outside a lottery spot and draft around 6th.
