Would save you a lot of posts.
But John Scott is more important to the Sabres, because Gainey showed us skilled forwards who don't fight have nothing to do with winning the cup.

Getting rid ? Although I'm not against trading Cole, mainly because his value is very high and he's on the decline. HE's still a very good player and he played very well today, showed some nifty moves out there.

Dany Dubbe suggests that next time, when it's 5-1, Subban should let the Big Guy sleep rather than poke the bear

#1 center ? Galchenyuk next year will be one and for many, many years.

Contending for the playoff spot. We'll get in underdog. But then, who knows ? We're the Kings underdog last year

Once again the unsung hero....he set the pace on both sides and was a constant threat, even if he finishes with "only" 2 points.

For a year or two until they become to expensive.

Vanek is not the greatest skater. He gets by on hockey sense, hands and shot with adequate skating abilities.

Yup. It's Vanek's fault.

He sure looks like it. I can't remember the last time I was as excited about the future of our team as I am now.

I still think Kaberle sits next game. Can't sit White tomorrow.

He only got 7 mins of ice time and still managed to look horrible in our own end.

I'd like to see a little of Pacioretty with Galchenyuk and Gallagher.

Could drop Prust back to fourth line and scratch Armstrong

JJ Daigneult on Antichambre. Therrien was on Antichambre before the start of the season.
Nice to see organization give the media alot more rights to the entire team.

Price made 30 saves on 31 shots. Wasn't he better than Miller and Enroth?

What a great game.

Bourque scores a couple. Desharnais comes back from the dead. Eller responds perfectly to an increased amount of ice time. The kids produce again. Subban transitions back into the team perfectly and Price gets a relatively easy win, all while putting up a decent amount of saves including a few nice ones.

Oh and Prust tools Ott. That was fun too.

What a game!

Subban poked the bear, got swatted, gave Montreal a powerplay.

If you do that though, you are sacrificing depth.

I could see it working if we're down a goal and need to get back in the game. Double shift your top players...

But it's also nice to have some balance.

I loved the pick but I thought going into the season some people around here were overrating Galchenyuk a bit...but I'm beginning to think it's no hyperbole, this kid is something special.

He's not quite Sidney Crosby, but he's going to be very, very good...
