Argentinian Malbec, that's all you gotta know.

I think it'll be a tight game, but if it does got that route, I just hope they don't start gooning it up and taking runs at our players like they always do when they lose. I could easily see one of those meat-heads target Markov's knee or something.

Answer: Prior to the 1960s, there was no NHL amateur draft. The recruitment of prospects was simply a matter of first come, first served. The Montreal Canadiens ensured they were first served by establishing perhaps the greatest farm system in sports history, with junior and senior teams on the prairies, minor pro teams in the U.S. and entire leagues in Quebec. The Leafs operated a similar network in Ontario and beyond. All players signed to those teams remained the exclusive propoerty of the NHL "sponsor" team until they were released or traded.
Prior to 1967, the Leafs and Canadiens held a further advantage. According to A Thinking Man's Guide to Pro Hockey, by Gerry Eskenazi, published in 1973, each NHL franchise had exclusive rights to players within its 50-mile territorial limits. So the Leafs and Canadiens could browse the neighbourhood rinks near Toronto and Montreal at their leisure, while the Rangers had a lock on the next great goalie from Hoboken.

Most of these advantages disappeared in 1963 with the introduction of the amateur draft. But the Leafs and Canadiens continued to benefit from players developed under the old system well into the 1970s."
The Bruins recruiting Bobby Orr was a interesting story.

I love it when the Northeast goes the way it deserves to go, Boston and Montreal in a dogfight for the top spot.
That's a great paradox you've got there, what does it mean exactly?

I think all the habs hubris going on is a little much. We've had a great start so far but this is by far our biggest challenge to date.

We could easily lose a hard faught battle against Boston and be left with nothing in the tank against Buffalo tomorrow. We could just as easily go 0-2 in the next 2 days.

Just saying, don't get to high because it could be a deep low 30 hrs from now.

I'd take a 1-1 record in the next 2 days. Preferably beating Boston but I'll take .500 in way I could.

If we take both games, than I'll go out on a limb and say we have a REAL good team capable of making and competing in the playoffs.

In any case, Go Habs Go!!!

I hate the Bruins with passion.
Even more since I went to the TD Garden with my Kovalev jersey in 2009.

What did you do between 1995 and 1997? Cried your life?

Armstrong is barely keeping up with the game on some shifts. Seems a step behind but at the same time he gets golden opportunities here and there. if he does not step up he could be the next player to miss some action.
