3 shutouts in the last 4 games for Rinne, so much for losing Ryan Suter

He declined to name them. He was very adament in saying that they should only be used as a tool to reinforce decisions though and that they weren't solid enough to make decisions on alone.

Yeah right, he should've played in some high profile market like Nashville.

His problem was that he wasn't as good as other defensemen in the league. If he was, then maybe he'd be a Norris contender.

Great on the PP though, no disputing that.

Sure he was not a finalist ever for the Norris but the voting is usually a joke, take for example probably his best season of his career in 2007-2008:



You can tell how hilarious some of the voters are when Streit gets Norris vote when he played most that year on forward...
I wonder who voted for Komisarek.

shocking to watch how ****ing quiet the Bruins are when they play buffalo and Scott. Thornton quiet like a mouse. No pushing, cheap-shots. amazing when the bully gets punched out

Team bought the system, Brodeur still on fire and they get a lot of secondary scoring from Clarkson

Watching the Jets-Pens game right now, i've never seen one Habs game this year that had this much intensity.

How is that not a penalty on Chara? Love how the bRuins announcers say "just Chara being too strong"

The Bruins always seemed to push the Sabres around but since Scott knocked the **** out of Thornton they've been quite tame in the 2 games since then.. Lucic hasn't been very noticeable in the few Bruin games I've watched this year either IMO.

Damn the Pen's PP is like the ultimate weapon they seem to score every damn time they're on it.

In my dreams, we cycle like them.

i'm not saying the habs are contenders, i'm not saying we're making the playoffs but i am saying that the east is WIDE open. EVERY single top 8 team has holes. if habs can get in...with a really solid puck-moving D and a hot price...we have a shot. Bergevin is going to have to address two holes: a crease clearing, shot-blocking D man + a scoring winger with size....

use whatever is necessary--our 2nds, eller or desharnais, white, prospects...etc...

What does any of this have to do with superstar? Do you know the difference between a superstar and a good player? Clearly you don't.

Talk about extended puck possession. Blues were smashing the Flames on that shift.

A big scoring winger like Cole Patches and Bourque ? What we need is a playmaking winger. We have 0 wingers able to pass.

It has nothing to do but if you deny that Markov was a superstar you never watched him play. He had a 68 point season for christ sake.

I know LA is now a slow starter but I swear if they end up with a top pick, I will be so mad.
