I was thinking about this as well. Coach could not have made the switch before this week because EK was still having problem with his own game. The timing was right for Cowen to be match and develop paired with King K

And Methot can help someone else

- He does it with his left skate. With the positioning in this case, that's way harder than doing it with his right foot, in full stride. Personally I'm also less coordinated with the left since I'm a righty.
The fact Spezza just kinda launched it into his feet.

I think people underestimate how much easier it is to play a puck off your skates than it looks, but ya, an impressive play given the fact it's going at NHL speed.

Funny how people are twisting Karlsson's words.

Bruce gives that contextual quote.

Nic St. Pierre says "He can't hate someone who's better."

And I encountered a Habs blog that reported him as saying "I can't not hate someone who's better than me."

i'm pretty sure karlsson doesnt speak french.

the 'journalist' shouldve quoted karlsson directly in english and then offered his french interpretation after. He quite deliberately hid karlsson's true words. Sensationalist journalism at its worst.

Subban is going to take them to the cleaners on his next contract.

Habs had the chance to lock him up cheap, and didn't take it.

I would bet the house on Subban's next contract being bigger then Karlsson's current one, guess that means Subban is the better player

Enrico Ciccone?

There's a blast from the past.

I had this hockey magazine years ago that was from Chicago, can't remember the name of it, but it was damn funny, and mostly made fun of the Esposito brothers and their books.

They did a player evaluation on all the tough guys at the time, and for Enrico Ciccone, they wrote:

"There must be two Enrico Ciccone's, because one person can't be that stupid."



It's always stuck with me.

Two year deal then hellllloooooo unrestricted free agency. Goodbye habitants - hello archrival Ottawa

Seriously i think they've made a terrible mistake and would love to see them pay for it.
He is 2 years away from signing for as much money as he wants from any team in the league.
2 year bridge deal then aurevoir.
who cares about the 8th year, he could sign for 7 years 8 + million from 29 other teams in July 2016.

that must be very tempting.

That would explain why they're trying to reign him in a bit and are making a point of not saying anything positive about the guy to the media.

Every kind word about PK in Habland just adds to the expenses sheet this year.

Karlsson's next goal will be his 50th in the NHL.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Subban leave Montreal when he becomes a UFA, he doesn't seem to get the respect he deserves as a Norris Trophy winner from the organization & from the coach. Maybe it's just my perspective but I could see him move somewhere else. Karlsson is the better goal scorer but I think Subban does a lot of things well including hit, although ... he is a little too mouthy.

didn't realize how much Subban is in the drivers seat as far as negotiations go

if he goes to arbitration, he's got a Norris putting up a lot of points, he's gonna have an easy case and could leave the Habs right after

We don't need to do that. He'll sign with us after his current contract expires anyway.
