I'm going out on a limb here and calling a goal by Scott Gomez. **** it, it's my birthday and that's what I wish. He's been showing good things the past few games and he's due to pot one...ok so he's been due since february of last year but still lol...
If they really want to try and pull a 0.700 sheet until the end of the season, I say let them. But I really hope they drag the weights and tank fast if they ever realize it's definetly out of their reach.
Habs need to get the jump on the leafs and other teams in the trade department, if they want to make some kind of splash at the playoff run.
Rest asured, other teams won't be waiting till trade deadline.
It's funny I think this thread needs a little Mathman optimism about regressing to the mean
This team had a rocky start, it's also been a weird schedule this year imo. Gaps with no games, just a sluggish season overall, hard to find momentum. New coach, change in the system, new players, young players. I have a gut feeling this team might actually be able to turn things around and this game will be the deciding point. If Buffalo wins they turn their season around, if we win we do. I just have a gut feeling. We played well our last couple games, our team is finding some offensive magic. Price will be pretty relaxed after the big break. If we can pull off this win we'll have 3 straight. It can be the catalyst for our turn around and we can fight back into 8th beat Toronto out into 9th and salvage a season out of this.
Don't get me wrong, if we tank you won't see me missing any games but I still believe in this team. I've seen a lot of good things recently, some players are maturing, vets picking up the slack. White will be back soon, if we can some how streak up the standings until Markov returns... we could be the dark horse this year. Tonight's game in my eyes is a very important one.
