The Habs are going to bore us to death and then sneak a 3-1 victory, old school Therrien style.

Despres needs to be playing in every game for his upside alone.

Montreal has had 85 shots in the last two games. We don't really play that boring a style.

Eaton getting 2nd-pairing time with Niskanen ahahahhhahhahahahaha.

Any time you can sign a 35-year old off the street whom no one else in the league wanted, you just have to give him top-4 minutes.


Hate reuniting 14-87-9. But whatever we can do to keep Pascal Dupuis in the top-6, we just gotta do it. Also glad to see Matt Cooke on 2nd Line and Bennett on the 3rd-line. Bylsma knows what's up.

Martin is not with the team, according to the twitter machine.

Niskanen and Letang are on the top PP, Despres on the second PP.

I agree with u on Eaton hes gonna end up playing in our top 6 every game we all know its gonna happen. Despres will be traded or sent back down to AHL. Bort will be the 7th def

They'll probably try to send Bortuzzo back through waivers. Its not like they haven't tried something stupid like that before.

I can kind of see the logic behind this, I guess if some players refuse to play any defense then there needs to be defensive oriented forwards on the top lines.

As of today, Pascal Dupuis and Matt Cooke are still better NHL players than Beau Bennett.

and if we are interested in seeing what Eaton can do, it makes sense to give him a chance to play to find out.

Nope, just healthy scratched. I'm not really sure why, it's not as if in-game play is keeping him out of the lineup, or we wouldn't be able to dress many defensemen after the hurricanes game.

Disagree on Matt Cooke. And Bennett hasn't been a liability on the ice (not that Cooke has), so why not give him an opportunity in the top-6 while there's a hole? Not like he hasn't played well enough to deserve a look.

And Vokoun in net.

We don't really have a top 6 without Malkin. We have a first line and two third lines. I have no problem with Bennett on the "third" line

Agree with Bennet, if they're keeping him up then see what he can do with top talent. With the bad losses for Vokoun the entire team was horrible so you really can't write him off yet. Plus for 2 mil they'll probably play him when he is scheduled regardless. IMO that signing was going to end up a failure unless he just absolutely shut out everyone.

Lol Therrien is now a super coach on this board? You guys do realize he was our last coach right, and we ran him out of town? (Not just our players, but this board hated him too!!) If they fire Disco, as soon as we fail to succeed with the new coach you'll want him back. .

The way the league is these days we should consider ourselves lucky to win another cup regardless of Crosby/Malkin. Actually, I remember a lot of people said they would be happy just to win it once before we won the last one.

I'm positive at least 50% of this board would fire Bylsma and bring back Therrien right now if they had the opportunity.

People would complain about Scotty Bowman on here.

I agree overall, going to back-to-back finals for both franchises in the cap era is something you probably wont see again.
