if you notice, Habs reporters/journalists don't like confrontation... They nervously laugh when Markov abuse them... They were scared of Jacques Martin (and Claude Julien), never really asked tough questions to Cunnyworth... The RDS reporter probably wanted to ask Lefebvre about Leblanc but chickened out!

Lefebvre is a bully, probably threatened to beat up the RDS dude if he made him look bad.

I can see him and his staff kinda like the character played by Rob Riggle in the movie Stepbrothers.

"Listen up RDS guy, you make us look bad, and Sylvain here will eat your dick!"

"Like Kobayashi!!!!"

You don't often see RDS and journalism associated together. It is something of an oxymoron.

The hockey part of the thread seems to have got lost.

lulz.

one of the best, i.e. worst parts is when Lavoie interviews a player in English between periods, basically asking very pointed questions and then translates it in a way that makes google translate seem perfect and as if the player himself brought up the issues and game plan. He could at least say something along the lines of, "je lui ai demandé...", "et il a répondu/répliqué" (I asked him..., and he replied...). Then again, not like those interviews are groundbreaking.

One thing I will give them credit for is that they aren't huge homers. In fact, usually tending to the opposite, particularly on L'antichambre. (I do actually really love Pierre Houde's commentary though.)

The most annoying thing is their hard on for any Francophones on the other team. Man, I like our homeboys too, but not when they play for the pens, bruins or flyers!

The best is when Lavoie asks a question in english and it comes out completely rude and innappropriate.

"So, Chris Higgins, you are having a terrible season and nothing seems to be working for you, why is that?"

"Uhh...Well, I don't know if I would say terrible...but..."

or

"So Kirk, the powerplay is really bad. Why do you think that is?"

"Ahh, jeez, I wouldn't say it's really bad..."

With Therrien and Bergevin's emphasis on grit/character, I wouldn't be surprised if both push for Tinordi to make the team out of camp. I doubt he's ready, but even so, it wouldn't surprise me if he stuck around.

I also think we may see the end of Weber.

I'm as high on Tinordi as anyone on this board, but I don't think it would be wise for him to make the team this year. He'd be unfortunately miscast as the team heavyweight, and the last thing you want is Lucic and co going after him and getting ourselves into another Komisarek situation. Tinordi needs to fill out, and then once he does we can set him out to the wolves. I think he gets a callup next year, and hopefully adds strength and size in the offseason...

I could see him getting a callup when/if someone goes down but

Subban
Markov
Gorges
Kaberle
Emelin
Boullion

all will play over him for sure. I also think theyll take Diaz as the 7th. He'll probably get a call over weber. It all depends on who gets hurt. If we lose an offensive guy than diaz is going in but if gorges or emelin go down tinordi could get the call.

I wouldn't rule it out, but it would be a terrible idea.

I'm definitely ruling it out. It's either Dumont or Galchenyuk who make the big team, no one else. I'm rooting for Galchenyuk to make the big team and maybe Dumont can continue to score with the Dogs and possibly turn into a solid secondary scorer for us (long shot but plausible). I can also deal with the roles being reversed.

I think when Bergevin says that he wants Galchenyuk to 'prove him wrong' and make the team, I think he's issuing a challenge to Galchenyuk. It's better than saying he thinks he can or can't outright make the team or even 'we'll wait and see'.

love how Therrien is putting the pressure on the players : '' we have no excuses, we will be ready '' ... putting pressure on himself, yes , but also on the players. He's got some balls ...

This. Big time. Some people are acting like our d corps is a joke. If you took out bouillon and added a big steady 2nd pairing guy then you have yourself a pretty top notch top 6

Some even strength numbers:

Weber
GP: 60
TOI: 11.40
Off Zone Start %: 56.5
Corsi Rel QOC: -.789
Rel Corsi: -9.2

St Denis
GP:17
TOI: 11.97
Off Zone Start %: 52.5
Corsi Rel QOC: -.807
Rel Corsi: 5.4

...confirms what (most of) our eyes were telling us, that St Denis was the more solid defenceman. I hope the Habs saw something they liked in Weber in Europe. Otherwise, they are either leaning on the promise Weber showed before he plateau'd, or they think they can find him some PP time (even with Markov, Subban, Kaberle and Diaz on the team) - IMO both these ways of thinking would be misguided.

What's on the agenda today?

Is there practice? If someone is going a report would be appreciated for those who cannot make it because of work.

For anyone that needs a translation.

Galchenyuk has just marked a goal in the attic window with a shooting from the wrists of the #NHL which did not give any chance to Carey Price
