I'm glad that Pacioretty wasn't seriously injured on that shot block. Eller was -3 in this game. Not one of his better efforts.

There are lots of issues with this team, but I still think we can turn it around for next year with a quality coach and a good GM.

One point isn't going to hurt our draft position. Other teams have games in hand on us, and won't lose all their games.

One thing is obvious, though. As evident as some slight signs of age and lingering injury seem to be, his ability to see and think the game faster and better than many players seems unaffected. Like, at all.

Even with Markov we desperately need a solid top d-man.

Markov - xxxx
Subban - Gorges
Diaz - Emelin

Aside from his passing skill(which also relies a lot of his vision) Markov never depended on being the most agile or best skating defensemen. It was always his hockey sense that made him an elite player.

I don't see many thinking they will be great next year but getting a potential franchise player certainly can't hurt turn this team around..

yeah but we don't have him and we only have 2 top six winger and no first line center. I guess a top 5 draft pick will give us 6 new players next year.

Subban is a solid top defenseman. If anything, we need a good 2nd pair guy, not a N.2.

It's all good. We're still 3rd worst. Maybe just 1 point back of the Canes and isles but both of them have a game in hand. And if we pick #3 we can always trade up with Edmonton so they can take a d-man while reaping extra picks! It's all good.

people act like losing is cool because we will have a great pick. Thing is we might suck next year and the other after too and we might run our top prospect out of town.

Pacioretty said the other night that Price is by the far the best and most valuable player on the team... But I guess he doesn't know what he's talking about.

I was imagining we overpay and get Suter.

Markov - Suter
Subban - Gorges
Diaz - Emelin

looks damn good.

God the bottom six is a mess. This team has obliterated it's forward depth in the last year and a half.

Anyways, my favourite part of the game (and for the rest of the season) will just be watching for Markov to be out on the ice and enjoying his play. I know that he was on for both goals against, but I still enjoy watching him move the puck and anticipate plays. A truly cerebral hockey player, can't wait for him to get 4 months of hard workouts and go back to running things next year.

i don't see many potential superstars in this yrs draft other than maybe Ryan Murray and Nail. The others look like your typical soft europeans. No offense.

You do watch and understand hockey, right??
What does Halak's stats in St.Louis have to do with Price's stats in Montreal?

If stats are so important, then I would have to say Elliott is a better goalie than Halak and by your logic you would have to agree.

Also, looking at stats only leads a team to sign players like Ville Leino. So no stats is not everything and should always be analyzed in context, but I don't expect you to comprehend that as many things appear too complex for you to understand.

It's clear you don't understand and watch hockey.

It was certainly a tough night for the general, however, through the rust we still see the player he is and always was.

He made some very keen plays tonight. Can't wait until he's shaken off all that rust.

Or maybe they won't suck next year and the other after that and they won't run the top prospect out of town..

Didn't you know? If we kept Halak, he'd post those exact stats with our team and if Price was a Blue he'd have the same stats as he does over here.

Also cool to see Cole crack the 50 points barrier and Desharnais continue to put points on the board.

Very true, although he was always above par (at worst) in all of those four categories. Hockey sense, vision, and passing can successfully carry great players through adaptation periods, as has been seen countless times. Always a blessing to have a mind that can buy you the time that your body no longer can.

edit: and on a totally unrelated note, even I'm going to say enough with the completely irrelevant Halak stuff already.

Yes, but you could plug Sutter on any team's top 2, so that's kind of irrelevant, especially considering the fact there's a very slim chance, if any chance at all, Sutter comes to Montréal.

I'm fairly confident with our actual squad, to be honest. With a steady stay-at-home type that can log around 20 minutes a night on the bottom 4, I think we'd be set. If we don't sign anybody, then we'll have a problem. You cannot have 4 PMD on a line-up and expect being solid on defense, providing Kaberle is still here next season.

What's more rational than thinking Halak's win total in St.Louis would be replicated in Montreal if he were still here.
