Are you sure about that? MT has mentioned it a number of times that Chuckie may be having some bad luck scoring but is very responsible defensively. From what I've seen I agree with him.

That's a statement out of left field.

Moen is there as a defensive and physical player, Galchenyuk made the team as an offensive player. You need to produce in limited minutes before they give you more.

Have you watched the last few games?

I'm sure MT knows that Galchenyuk is an 18 year old and he doesn't want to crap on him in the media. He is responsible "for an 18 year old" but not for an average NHLer, and definitely not for a guy playing against top lines in the NHL(Plekanec Gionta).

I would be giving the tough minutes to Eller's line.

Let Plekanec get a but more "offensive flair."

Well, i found Galchenyuk better defensively than some of our regular.
He got the talent, but he lack of experience. But he's getting it slowly.

That would make us worse as a team because Eller isn't on Plekanec's level defensively. He's solid but Plekanec is one of the best in the NHL(should be nominated for Selke).

That's your best counter? Have I watched the last few games lately. I could ask the same of you.

Chuckie has the 4th best +/- on the team. You said he is struggling defensively with protected minutes. Stats, MT and what I've seen disagree with your observation.

If you would have left it at he's struggling offensively with protected minutes no one would disagree with you.

And if your comment was true, MT would have sat him for a couple of games. To be honest I'm astonished at Chuckie's defensive game. I've seen very few rookies come into the league and play with so much defensive awareness.

I hope the team is resting today... after playing 3 games in 4 days, and knowing tomorrow's opponent is a physical team, I think rest is in order.

so, now that we know we don't need Plekanec to win, should we trade him?

Eller is going to play himself in a position to center one of the top 2 lines, book it.

Kid is a stud and has been held back from blind love for DD.

I'm not 100% sure but I would expect the skate to be optional today and mostly for the injured guys

Agreed. I myself have watched every game & I record Canadiens Express & have watched Chuckie in all situations in slow motion. I have no idea where people are getting this idea he's been bad defensively. No he hasn't. As a matter of fact he's doing so many little things people are obviously not noticing that demonstrate he's sound on the D side of the game. Anyone here want a revised list?

My only complaint is his troubles on the boards in both zones. He doesn't use his frame at all, he tries to fish it out with his stick. This will come with increased strength, physical development, maturity and confidence.

Full day off today. Probably only Diaz and Bourque will skate.

They're required to give the players a certain amount of days off as per the CBA.

Do to the condensed schedule there is more days off than practice days basically.

Does anyone hope to see Galchenyuk stay down the middle?

the guy played his best game in months, since probably he was down the middle for prust/gallagher.

the guy is a natural center, why ruin it?


bourque eller gionta
dd pleks ryder
pacioretty galchenyuk gallagher
prust halpern moen

that's what I'm hoping for, at least down the middle, for the playoffs. that's 4 solid center-man.

I thought to myself that he looks like a less physical Seidenberg, very intelligent with and without the puck, smooth skating, good positionning, strong stance and hands when stick checking and in front of the net, seems to have offensive flair too. of course Seidenberg is a proven 1st-2nd pairing, but I certainly can see this player becoming more than another stay-at-home D, I'd try him over Bouillon on the PP, his passes are hitting the mark and he seems confident when he moves the puck, wich is really important for a defenseman.

I think he's going to be a Habs for a while, he's an upgrade over Bouillon IMO and never really got the chance to prove himself to be a regular NHLer with the Sharks. It's a fresh start for him and he made a good impression on me.

Totally agree re: Galchenyuk. He had that one beautiful solo rush last night where you could actually see his confidence jump up one notch. The crowd loved it! Again - a question of confidence.

I find he's on the wrong side of the puck, chasing the puck carrier instead of coming at them head on more often. Still, I like his poke checks in those situations.

It'll come people

That's exactly the line combos I'd go with.

Balanced and there's very little to give offensively for each of the 3 top lines and a very defensively responsible 4th.

I guess that's what depth in your line up looks like!

I don't think Galchenyuk is better than Plekanec, Eller or Desharnais yet, so no. He's 19, if playing anything but center would hurt he should have been sent back down. Being able to adapt to mulitple positions will only help him.

I do want to try Desharnais on the wings still, but not in the playoffs.

At the game last night, I was watching some of the lesser suspects:

- Blunden is working his ass off to make an impression. He was moving everywhere at top speed. Very physical. Nothing spectacular, but he played a very solid game with some great forechecking in the O-zone. We should keep this guy on our 4th-line radar, depending who we play in round-one.

- Drewiske is exactly as advertised. Not a single mistake. Cautious. Moderately physical. Good sign, though I'd like to see his development as he learns the system.

- White obviously needs a few games to get his timing back, which accounts for a messy game.
