Doesn't matter. Those other clubs are doing far worse. We're in a virtual tie with these guys now. We don't have to win too many games to wind up 6th dude.

I'm not expecting him to rack up assists with the guys he's playing with and the icetime he gets but if I remember well from an article from Boucher scouting, Palushaj gets a terrible conversion rate on his completed Ozone passes but he has pretty good sucess rate for actually making the passes but a team worst 1% conversion rate wich fits well with his terrible 5on5 on ice shooting % of 4.49%.
It's about confidence. He's a pretty young player who plays mostly on the fourth line. Let him leave the season feeling like a true member of the team, and come into training camp with his head held high.

So many players get their confidence destroyed in this city, I mean look at the improvement in Campoli's play lately, it's drastically better after he shook the rust, and he looks so confident out there (he still makes a lot of defensive mistakes, but...). Compared to riding the bench or press box every other game.

I hope Palushaj and Weber are both retained. I feel like in cities where hockey is swept under the rug they would have an easy time blossoming. It's just a little tougher in Montreal. These guys are young, cheap, talented players. They've been successful everywhere, they just need the confidence and opportunity to do so in Montreal, too. Part of the reason why I like seeing Weber with Markov out there is all of the little things he can pick up from playing alongside him. He can learn a lot from the General!

I am in for all Wolverines. I think he can be serviceable, but needs a defined role and more time in the minors. But I like him.

Our depth is gone but Cunney is making up for it by riding his starting 5 for half the game (DD's line with Subban and Gorges + Plekanec who always has over 20 mins). That's not bad if they don't run out of gas, but you'd have to believe that at some point they will. Maybe not Subban because he's a beast and Plekanec who seems to be focusing on defense foremost.

calm down tankers. geez

We suck and we will draft in the top5
7/10 pts suggests otherwise + the other teams aren't helping (our "rivals" are sucking bad and will continue to; van, a hot buffalo, ott should have been locks). Quite frankly it's the Leafs getting a higher pick that us that worries me. They might just break out of their abysmal suckitude this year with that pick. So unfair to go most of the season entertaining your fans and then giving them that great #3 pick. Then again...that must suck balls to realize you are what you are - just plain pathetic

this momentum will not carry over to next year. There are huge problems. If we solve them in the offseason that's great. If we do well next year it will have nothing to do with this late season surge, cuz that's all it is. IMO our opponents have not played that well and we've played uncharacteristically well (how I thought we would play from game 1). Through the draft...much more reliable way to turn things around (even if it's for the following year) if higher.

If we sweep this home and home and then beat the Isles it will be a very crushing turn of events. On draft day, it will become clear to everyone just what these past 5 games (long forgotten) will have done to the organization. Price was 5th. That turned out quite well.

Yakupov will be gone. That leaves Forsberg, Grigs and Galchenyuk as the prime forwards. Hopefully at least one of them is there for us.

We never sucked enough for Yakupov, though.

Tanking is well and good, but watching the team gel and players improve is also a good sign. We can still end up with a player like Faksa or Trouba around 6-8.

We can count on Captain Kirk to keep the Canes ahead of us.

Whoever signed Erik Cole deserves a raise, oh no wait, ****!

Bergy is at that age where some elderly people start losing their logic and start farting without knowing it. The guy is senile.

I also love that he plays the 4th line... like a 4th line. Limited minutes just enough to give his best players a breather.
He plays his 4th line like a 4th line because it is useless most of the time.
