This made me say "oooooooh" for like a solid 10 seconds.

10/10 would laugh again.

Go Habs Go

No games should be taken as EASY, in this short season all games are important.

Habs playing well, keep the streak alive.

Lays had a curry flavor chips, they were great!

Miss Vickies' is king of chip right now.

Well said good sir, these people spouting off and going in all kinds of negative tangents in the name of 'realism'.

I much prefer people who consider themselves champions because their local pro sports team is going well. Such people are highly valued in my book.

I hope I'm wrong but I don't see Montreal as a top three team in the conference but more of a 6 7 8 team.
They must be made of something sturdy, they have a better winning% on the road than at home.

Habs are too deep into their "zone" right now. They'll play with confidence tonight and have a great game to go on with their sixth straight win. I feel a good game by Erik Cole.

Here's my prediction for tonight.

Habs Win 5-2.

Cole x2
Gionta
Galchenyuk
Eller

I have no problem with optimism, nor pessimism for that matter. It seems this board is either one or the other almost all the time. Anyone who tries to evaluate the situation from outside the homer fan perspective at either given time is either labelled as having a loser mentality for thinking the team might lose when the team is currently winning and is labelled a homer or fan boy if they think the team can win when it's currently losing.

If we can walk out of that 15 game stretch with a .500-ish record I'll be very content with the stretch.
How is that a test though? They have been a good road team and poor(er) home team the last 2 years.

He's at 12 for, 3 against 5 on 5. Which is insane and he's not going to keep it up but one hell of a start to his career.

This largely cancels out the underperformance of Desharnais' 2nd line which really shouldn't be in the minus like they have been. Should even out with time. There are a lot of other factors but its an extreme illustration of how managed minutes can be a real thing, Galchenyuk's line is doing the job Desharnais line was doing in the Martin period of last season while Desharnais' line is doing Gomez's old job (and Eller is essentially the new Halpern from 2010-11)
