GST: Habs vs Sens

I think we need a Game Summary Thread. I want to read how each Hab player did last night without reading the GDT - 24 pages!!!!

I know who the goalscorers were. Who played? Who excelled? Who bombed, etc?

From what I was hearing on the radio, Latendresse played VERY well. Kostitsyn seemed to be all over the place... Ribeiro seemed pretty good.

Sportsnet seems to be the only place showing replays. From what I saw, Chips is a very smart player and knows where to be. His plays with Ryder and Higgins were great. We benefited from a weak goalie in the third though. The game would have ended much closer if Gerber had stayed in the net. Oh well, gives the guys some confidence!

I just saw RDS but haven't seen any on TSN. Maybe I'm still drunk. Wouldn't surprise me.

Hockey highlights should never follow baseball. Preseason or not. It just feels wrong.

So Lats and Kost are the two stand out for the prospects?

yep, i saw the game a cage and those 2 really clicked together, talent vs force type thing, and Mike Ribeiro was doing great too. The reason why that line was working is that Ribeiro finally had players to catch up with, it's so stupid for soemone like him to play Samsonov and Kovalev, there 2 puckholders that are simply too fast for him, Mike can't do anything cause he ain't the type of player that'l finish any one-timers, or top corner wrist shots, and the game they played againts Boston they were horrible defensively, always out of place and never backchecking on time. Chipchura and Higgins played great games too. Chip really reminds of Rob brindamour, Keith Primeau type center, he's big , strong and very smart with the puck

Solution: Keep the Latendresse-Ribeiro- Kostitsyn line intact and put Pleckanek to center the Sammy-Kovy line, he's faster, stronger and alot more reliable defensively then Mikey

Higgins-Koivu-Ryder
Sammy-Pleckanek-Kovalev
Latendresse-Ribeiro-Kostitsyn
Johnson-Bonk/Chipchura- Bégin
Lappiere, Chipchura/Bonk

AHL: Perezhogin, Ferland

It says Grabovski had a penalty. I guess he is back from his injury?

Perezhogin has a one-way contract and will surely be picked up if put on waivers. Chipchura will hone his skills a little bit more at the AHL level and could be in Habs lie up sooner than later. Same with Kost. Carbonneau & Gainey will need a bit of time to evaluate the real potential of their team. So, for now, Perezhogin, Latendresse, Murray are staying. Downey should be flushed. Ferland should also stay. If they try to send him back to Hamilton, he will be picked by another team (Columbus again ???). lapierre can be sent down without going thru waivers. He is another one who will be back soon. Too bad Gainey hired Samsonov and re-signed Downey !

Ribs is a better finisher than Pleks, and that's not saying much Imo, Carbs will try Lats - Ribs - Kovalev next game, and Sammy won't be on the same duo as Kovalev for a long time.

That's bull. Plekanec has a way better shot and better finish than Ribeiro. He just didn't get the PP opportunities, or ice time that Ribs had.

Better shot yes, but better finisher no. Say what you will about Ribs, but he's an intelligent player and pots a fair share of garbage goals that Pleks doesn't.

Ok, seriously...that is so wrong I don't even know where to begin.

Have you never seen Plekanec play or is there something you can acutally back this up with?

If anything he's better at deking the goalie.

Hmm I wonder why Ribs is placed in front of the net on the PP and not Plekanec?

Because Ribs plays the 2nd PP and he's a center?

Centers aren't the only players that screen the net, for instance ottawa used Chara. You can either flank a big guy there, or you use someone who can pot garbage goals (Ryder on PP one). Kovalev isn't big on this, so they used Ribs. This season they could use either Lats or Kostitsyn imo.

I disagree, Plekanec has a way better shot and hasn't been given a chance to play in a offensive role as of yet.

As I said, he's got a better shot, I wouldn't say WAY better, cuz he's no Ryder or Kovalev himself. Pleks was given a more offensive role toward the end of last season, and he didn't disapoint. But I don't think he's ever gonna be a 60+ pointman.

You'll see in time that you're stubbornly holding on to a misconception. Plekanec was a leading goal scorer in Hamilton. He didn't make the Habs as a plugger.

Exactly.

Plekanec is a better player then Ribeiro IMO and if given the chance he would produce even more then Ribs.

You talk as though that's Ribeiro's norm. He did it once (in no small part because Dagenais had an unrepeatable career year) but was unable to match it in 2005-06 even though the NHL imposed tighter rules on restraint and permitted longer passes through the neutral zone. He'll be 27 this season. How many seasons do you expect him to last with the Habs?
