I think that would have been the case if the whole relocation thing would have happened.

Re-alignment hasn't happened yet, so nothing has changed.

Therrien's Habs are crushing Buffalo 4-0 in the second.

Thanks. I didn't think so, but since I stopped following the lockout at Thanksgiving and only just started paying attention again, I missed some things

Buffalo are so poor this year. Reckon Montreal will make it to the play-offs.

Looks like the days of MT being a 'soff coach are over.

That is awesome.

I cannot wait for the egos of Price and Slewban to really collide with Therrien's old school ways when things aren't going well. Should make for some good media.

I don't know if the guy is overrated (had some bad times last year too although his numbers weren't terrible for a 50+ game season he played), but I think more likely he's going to take a long time to completely get his game together. I mean the guy is not exactly built for hockey. It's pretty amazing he plays as well as he does during his "good play" stints. I don't think he'll ever be Chara but it took Chara a while too...

Yakupov looks like an idiot there imo. No reason to go after Duchene.

Duchene shoots the puck with time expiring at an empty net, and the light goes on just before the puck crosses the line. Fairly close. And Nail doesn't like it and goes for the face wash on Duchene.

It's funny seeing these players who got those "3rd deals" right after their ELC fall flat on their faces. Has anyone who signed an uber-deal living up to it really?

In the past couple years, Stamkos and Tavares.

Haha, did you see Max on that one??? Too funny......

I guess if you raise your hands and do a twirl like you scored, and all your teammates go to the other guy, who really did score, and you stand there by yourself, it is a bit.......... awkward.

Was going to say that it looked like the Flyers were going to win but that makes it interesting and you can never know with Bryzgalov in goal.
