Nope. Losses to Toronto(x2), Boston, Buffalo(OT), and Ottawa.

I understand why people hate Budaj because he's not easy to watch, especially when you are used to Price, but he's really not bad. Unless you produce one, you aren't going to get an above average goalie to play cheap backup for a workhorse like Price.

As I said before, I'd take Budaj over Auld easily.

Tweet from John Lu:

#Habs Prust says he'll put "low 4 figures" on the table Tuesday night against NYR, his ex-team. "You can't get away with less than that."

What's this mean?

I'd move him in a deal for ROR from Colorado. Desharnais, Beaulieu and a 1st for ROR and a 3rd
I hope Bergevin is working on it.
To have Plekanec, ROR, Galchenyuk and Eller down the middle would be sweeeeet!
I doubt that package gets RoR.

It would probably be Eller + Tinordi + 1st.

Eller is a waste as the 4th line centre.

And his career stats against Boston are some of the best on this team.

Really happy for Budaj. How many people thought we'd come out of a back-to-back starting Budaj both times only allowing 1 goal? No one, especially not me. Granted, we've done a great job limiting chances at the net but still, considering his two disastrous starts earlier this year, I'm happy for him.

Money for whoever scores the winning goal against the Rangers.

A couple grand for whoever gets the GWG, most likely.

It means he'll probably foot the bill for a $2,500 night out for the boys.

Basically a wager to get the boys motivated to beat his old team.

It doesn't really shock me. The guy posted a .913 SV% last season.. that's better than a lot of team's starting goaltenders.

I'm freaking happy for Peter Budaj.
Guy has never complained, knows his role, works his ass off at practice and judging from 24CH he looks like a big team player.

Glad the effort paid off for today!

Yea those games are really costly. If we can win the games against the Sens and Leafs next week it'll be huge for us.

On a completely different note;

Only Boston and Ottawa have given up less goals than us in the Eastern Conference.

We're one point behind New Jersey and Pittsburgh for the Eastern Conference lead.

lol......exactly what I would be doing....

Put this in perspective.....

Montreal beat
Florida x 2
TB
Buffalo
Ottawa
Winnipeg
NJ (OT)
Carolina
Philadelphia
Washington

Not exactly the cream of the crop there......

They lost to teams that get physical with them....

Buffalo in PS (as soon as Buffalo got physical the game changed)
Boston
Toronto x 2
Ottawa

I was pretty disappointed with Desharnais this season, but he's been solid the last couple of games for us. The Captain on the other hand...

Not at all. It'll correct itself soon though (I hope).

On the flip side, we're 6-0-0 against the SE and last year we only won 7 games total against them.

The two games against Toronto, we were really bad.

The Ottawa game we lost because of White and I believe the Buffalo one as well.

Boston was a good game and we just couldn't beat Rask. I felt we outplayed them.

He got an assist for his trouble too.
