Did this game reveal anything? Well, yes. It demonstrated why the Habs are 28th rather than 29th. It also showed that the Habs desperately need Markov to return. It suggested that it might not be a bad idea to use the first rounder on a Dman or perhaps even to trade down if the Habs could get the other team's first rounders in 2012 and 2013 plus another second rounder. That would give the Habs three firsts and six seconds over a two-year span. What, fans desperately want to draft a Russian in 2012? Well, there must be lower seeded Russians or Czechs who could also play for the Habs.

They should try that 1-3-1 with Subban-Kaberle/Bourque/Plekanec-Pacioretty more. They looked golden, not just on the goal but in general.

Its like Montreal suddenly learned how to move the puck on the powerplay again rather than just tee off point shots.

Yeah, people saying "20-20" centerman just...they just don't get it.

Eller is essentially Plekanec, with better puck handling, shot, and offensive creativity.

Good youth right there. I think Eller is right around the corner to breaking out into a 20-20 two-way centerman.
A 20-20 player is only good enough to be a third line center,
Team is going to need a second line center. Having DD
first line , plek second line and eller on third line center is weak
Got to get size and scoring on that second line

I wonder if Gaston Therrien is the one who picks the titles for the RDS articles: http://www.rds.ca/canadien/chroniques/336527.html

There will be nothing but very good things to come from Subban and to think some here wanted this guy traded..
He and Plekanec are both being screwed on the +/- by empty net and shorthanded goals. Their true 5 on 5 +/- are much better. It's something of an artifact of being an important offensive player on a team that's lost a bunch of close games.

I agree with most of this post except that we should not take a Russian. Galchenyuk is hardly a Russian and certainly does not play like the typical one. But I would not be opposed to drafting another D, particularly if it was Murray. But our NEED is offense. We have some solid D in the system, although having too many can NEVER hurt.

Also, just wanted to comment on those posts that attempt to make Kaberle appear better by posting his stats; Kaberle is a liability in two major respects: 1. defensive ability and 2. weak physically. Sure, he can lug the puck up ice and still has solid offensive zone vision, but the reality is his body is out of shape and has aged. His hockey sense has never really been that good. He probably will remain with us next season, but only as the seventh defenseman.

Even if Markov returns, Habs will sign a top four defenseman, perhaps even Brad Stuart. Three - four year deal just to get it done and wait for Tinordi, Ellis and Beaulieu to develop PROPERLY ala Detroit in the AHL.

So Filip Forsberg is not physical enough. Yet you choose maybe the softest palyer in this draft ...

Athanasiou aside.

This time last year did anyone think Pacioretty would score 30 goals this season? I think not. A moral victory to compensate for our actual victory

**** YOU ZDENO CHARA

and pull out the Win

I think some of you are overrating Eller here a bit. I think he will be a 60 point player some day, but to say he is better than Plek in almost every respect is a stretch. I agree that he needs more ice time because he shows he improves when he is given it. However, Plek is a much better play maker and two way player. Also, to say his shot is better than Pleks is a stretch as well. He could be a player similar to Mikko Koivu if he rounds out his playmaking game.

We need another soft player, we don't have enough now lol
Drafting russian player's is not always a safe bet, one little thing
and they could bolt accross the pond.
Hope the habs don't get ****ed !!!

I have to side with him on this one. Price was getting a bit "stale" out there. He needs to pushed, all goaltenders and players do. We should have been playing Budaj more a long time ago.

Congrats MaxPac. Top 10 in NHL goalscoring. And some around here doubted his goalscoring ability. He's got more goals and almost as many points at $8M/season Parise.

Grigorenko + MaxPac is going to be insane (sorry DD).
