How do you get banned?

two of our own? How do we bring them back?

Is it because they were acting like goons on the ottawa board?

I've gooned it up there a couple times. Can you still see the posts just not post when you're banned?

What's this obsession with the 4th line? Are we going to give them 20 min. of ice time? Habs should roll with 3 lines if the games are tight.

Unless somebody goes on an insane scoring streak, Plekanek will be the Habs most important forward. And Subban should play 30 min. per game. These will be the keys to success.

But yeah, right, we should put a huge emphasis on the 4th line...

Well if you read the site rules you stay away from other teams boards, especially if all you're going to do is go argue. No point do it on your own board. You're giving 4 infractions if I remember correctly before being banned so if you don't get it the 1st, 2nd and 3rd time there is a problem

I'm pumped for tonight. They need to crash the net early and get into Anderson's head. Two early goals would be ideal, but as long as they don't play the Sens game and play their own, aggressive offense and getting to the tough areas, we'll be fine. We need to break through their defense.

Yeah but we can't score. It takes an awful lot of hard work for our team to get 2 goals. It means we have to be defensively perfect and Anderson has to not let in more than 1 goal. The 9 games Andy lost in regulation he got 10 goals in those 9 games. 10. We don't and cannot score. If we had Spezza I truly think that we could challenge anyone in the East. Without him and a 75% Karlsson, we don't have the offense.

Unless Price ***** the bed we are out in 5. We are both quite negative aren't we

Every line counts in the playoffs. You want the fourth to either create immense pressure with physical play like the Blues or you set it up so it's a solidly defensive line that can hit.

Habs have tons of 4th liners to chose from.


Therrien is right to start with Prust-White and Moen. But beside Prust he can almost change in every game with Halpern, Armstrong,Dumont,Blunden, Leblanc, and Bournival in standby.

Yes. 4th liners are important during Playoffs.

We have to sacrifice one of our own board members to get them back. I nominate patofqc

Yeah but if you become suspicious they'll do a search on your IP(s) to see if it matches with anyone who's been banned. Normally you don't even get in because mods have to pre-approve registrations anyway.

Riiiight, they're going to create immense pressure for 5 min. a game...

I'd rather optimize the skill we put on the ice for the other 55 mins, but that's just me.

Seems like you're still in the old days when 4th liners were just goons and couldn't play hockey. Not to mention you don't pay attention to the box scores, because 5 minutes is an entirely ficticious number and hasn't occured in a single game yet.

Most of the 4th line players playing in the playoffs play about 9-10 minutes a game, not 5, and some got 13 minutes. Also, not every 4th liner is a total incompetent like Colton Orr or Mclaren.

And for those 9-10 minutes, you want at the very least for them to play so that pucks are not being tossed into our net while they are on the ice. White is a shaky lineup choice over Halpern, but Prust and Moen can be effective defensive players who also contribute on the penalty kill.

Agreed, I did exaggerate a little bit in order to make my point, but still.

Just look at the Kings run last year, for example. The top 9 guys all played 13 mins. or more. The remaining forwards all played either less games, or much less ice time.

My point is: if the 5-10 mins. from our 4th line are soooo important to our success, we are in trouble.

Against Ottawa, it's going to be a matter of skill much more than intimidation or physical play.

Hmm, I don't see people talking about the 4th line as a centerpiece, but they are expected to contribute with a couple timely scores, not be a defensive liability, and if there are PKers on it, kill penalties. The hits are beneficial if it wears out the opposing player's stamina or helping us win puck battles.

I don't think any 4th line except Dinosaur Carlyle's is out there purely to indimidate.

Fraser-Nolan-Richardson was their 4th line, I believe. 8-9 minutes a game. And they did show up in a couple games with a couple timely points.

13 minutes or over should be expected from the top 9, barring injury or other circumstances. I see no team in these current playoffs bucking that trend. But so far, the teams have kept their top 9 player's minutes well-balanced for the most part; not too many forwards have not logged very many minutes over 20 minutes unless the game went to OT.

I was a big proponent of Moen getting a contract extension after last season. His grit and leadership in the playoffs were too valuable to lose. He has been **** this year, and I kept telling myself that he will turn it on for the playoffs and come through for the faith i've put into him. It's now time to nut up or shut up. Moen don't fail me now, otherwise I won't be sorry to see you go come off-season.

If he doesn't step it up i wouldn't be against trading/waving/buying him out this summer. I like Moen but money the Habs gives him could be better spent elsewhere if he keep no showing
