Sure they had chemistry but would Bob choose to slow down the Habs overall speed that much just to add a centre who HAD chemisty with Samsonov. I would hope not.
I think Plekanec will do very well in that role when he starts to relax and play his game rather than looking to be extra fancy and making one too many passes!
hmmmmmmm....60 points in 66 games last season and still jobless a week after the season starts, there's a reason why.
He must be rejecting all those other offers waiting for Bob to give him a contract, they just can't decide on how many years.Bob wants to give him a 10 year contract, Allison only want 3 though.
serioulsy, the guy's just a bigger, whiter version of Ribeiro.
Right now, there is no way I'd want to see Allison on our team. He doesn't really have a spot to fit in, and I'd rather see the development of a player like Plekanec in an offensive role. If our second line can't do anything by the midway point of the season however, my opinion could change.
I don't know if Kovalev is hurt but he really need to take step his play a little better, is not horrible 1-2-3, but he made so many bad and swollen pass... Otherway he control the puck so well and his wirst shot is amazing, USE IT MORE...
BTW, Samsonov goal is so cool, If take it on my PC, he was accelerating and the control of the puck was !
I don't know what to do for motivate those two...Give them an AK47 to plays with?
Before made a signature like that, I'm sure Carbo gonna try if the second doesnt increase there plays, he'll try to switch Ryder-Sammy or Higgins-Sammy. May be just to put Johnson on the second line.
The only thing I don't like this year, is tho see Perezhogin on the third line, he do an amazing job but I think he deserve a top-6 spots because with more then 20 minutes of ice time, he can do a 20-25 and 50 seasons.
