The sound of a puck hitting a metal cage isn't so good if you are wearing the metal cage. A better sound (IMO) is scoring a goal by ringing a puck off the inside of a post. Glorious You can still laugh at a goalie after that if you want to and nobody gets hurt.

Shattering a goalies plastic throat protector makes quite the sound too

Also managed to remove a goalies mask once with a slapshot right between the eyes. Popped it right off his head and it fell behind him (albeit, slightly helped by him flinching backwards as it hit him). Luckily he was fine. Almost made me want to see if I could do it again

I'll never understand why goalies complain about the paintwork on their mask getting damaged. Why get an expensive paint job if you can't stand to see it damaged accidentally? It's unbelievable

Galchy has the same trainer as Mike (Cammy) and uses biosteel products + participates in most of their camps. I really hope Cammy gave/gives him some good pieces of advice. I'm sure hes not the kind of guy that will talk negatively even though it didn't end the way we all wanted it to.

Just checked.. Biosteel supplements are expensive as ****! 1 month supply of their 3 products is over 300$ with tax and shipping. (Whey Protein, BCAAs, and recovery drink, which seems to be a mix of Whey and Amino acids)

No wonder cammy wore his biosteel cap and had products in the backround, they probably sent him free stuff.

For comparison, 1 month of BCAAs and Protein costs me 55 bucks.

Just wait until next year, when we have 4 picks in the first 2 rounds in a supposedly better draft year.

Please Bergevin don't trade away the picks, let Timmins do his magic.

And you now why they can make their product so expensive? Because famous athletes use it.

Speaking as an athlete and somebody who strength trains regularly, you can get most of the nutrition you need for recovery and hypertrophy (if bulk is your thing) from the food you eat, if you eat the right food and the right quantity of it. Now, pro-athletes who exercise for a living burn far more calories than the average person possibly could, so they need to supplement their nutrition. But I'll keep my money.

Maybe, but meat is expensive. Supplementing is a good cheap way to get the protein your body needs when training.

So happy about center depth, when Galchenyuk reaches #1 line center duties We can now shield desharnais on the second line and still be competitive, and use Lars on the third line. Were really building a nice little forward core


Collberg-Galchenyuk-xxxx(gallagher maybe)
Pacioretty-Desharnais-xxxx
Leblanc-Eller-Bournival
White-xxxx-xxxx

That's just our prospects and doesn't include any free agent signings we might have.

I don't think any will, I think this management team knows we have to wait until gomez and kaberle are off the books before were really competitive, and then start pushing. I actually think your not even going to see a lot of changes come tomorrow as well.

It'll be very difficult to top 2007. He drafted two number one defencemen and a top line winger that year.

I strongly doubt that the 2012 cohort will be nearly as good as that one.

If you can't afford meat, let alone good, organic meat (and, really, you should only eat organic anything), then flavorless whey is the easiest "whey" to go.

However, an interesting fact: calorie for calorie, broccoli has more protein than steak, and it's a similar story for many vegetables. Obviously it's harder to eat a lot of broccoli vs steak, but that's good to know if you're a vegetarian.

Anyway, I've gone OT in too many threads in my day, so again, my apologies to the mods.

Agreed. But Gally could be the best player he's drafted yet, Collberg really is an incredible talent to have fallen into the second round (as was Subban), plus the upside on guys like Thrower, Bozon, Hudon and even Vail is pretty high. So his best draft ever, unlikely. One of his best drafts ever, very possibly.

Does look like Galchenyuk does have to work on his skating technique.

It also just takes time to evaluate. 2004 was so-so, but the best players turned out to be the later picks. I remember excitement with the 2006 draft. Maxwell was projected as a 1st rounder. Valentenko was a big time sleeper, according to some. Even White was projected to be a potential late 1st rounder. He was the fourth player taken by Timmins in that draft and the only one left with a good chance of contributing to an NHL team.

What makes the 2007 draft the benchmark is the quality. If the Habs get one top player and a some NHL regulars, then that would be a very good draft by usual standards. That would be like the 2005 draft, which produced a cornerstone in Price and three NHL forwards who have scored 20 goals or hit 50 points in a season.

Going by that standard, it seems it's fair to hope for a cornerstone in Galchenyuk, and two or three NHL regulars. Anything more than that is awesomeness beyond reasonable expectation.

Difference between 2007 and 2012 is that no one thought 2007 was anything special at the time.

McDonagh was taken where he was projected to go, but playing in a Minnesota High School league, your average fan knew nothing about him. We only had reports to go on.

Max Pacioretty was the intriguing pick. He was also chosen around his projection, but a lot of people loved his package of size, speed and shot. A lot of non-Habs fans liked the pick.

Subban was simply seen as a PP specialist, nothing more. He couldn't be trusted even strength, wasn't big enough, etc. The hype started building when we heard him speak for the first time. People loved his character and Habs fans believed he could be something more. It turned out most of us, and Timmins, were right.

The thing that scares me about 2012 is that everyone thinks the Habs stole the show. There are lofty expectations.
