We're going to lose. It's sad that even the Laffs who haven't seen the playoffs in almost a decade have a better team than us. At least we can hope Gally plays well.

The Canadiens are uber pumped for the opening match at the Bell Centre...on paper we are light years ahead of the Leafs...I foresee a comfortable victory for us, if anyone doubts it send them my way and I will destroy their flawed logic with awesome detonations of superior rationale.

The Habs have a weak lineup in many ways but the Leafs, on paper at least, are below average everywhere. Their top line is good and Kessel is as good as all of our wingers combined, but that's undermined by having Bozak as their 1C. Put it this way, I'd rather have Eller than Bozak as my #1C.

Isn't Orr still injured ?

Can't wait for the game.

Gallagher I believe only plays if Pleky can't,

so excitedddd!!!! looking forward to see how MT will handle his line up, his D pairs. It's been long time he has not coached a NHL game. And ofcourse I want to see how the players react to this week teachings. I feel toronto are perfect opponent for now as both teams lack structure. And the team that will be more focused and more organized will win.
A lot of talking has been made, it is time to drop the puck
all eyes on alexG27

I think we can expect both teams to start the game off at a really high pace, assuming neither of the coaches tries to slow down the pace right off the bat, which is a possibility. They've probably got a lot of adrenaline pumping going into this, but let's keep if they can keep a good pace up for the whole game. I expect a fight or two.

Eller & Bourque are going to pot 25 each playing on the 3rd line. I can feel it.

I'm happy that JM and RC will not be behind the bench. It'll be nice to have a coach who has a little fire in him.

Oh, and screw the Queen ! Toronto is The Queen City (la ville Reine)... not Montréal ! They even have Queen street downtown Toronto.

Go Habs go ! I'm all excited about tomorow's game. Even without Subban, I'm predicting a WIN !
We carry the queen here in winnipeg into the building, canadian tradition? But holy shiiiiiiiit am ever pumped for this game.
3-1 Habs

Enough with the " I can't believe Orr is in the line-up!" comments. 2 things.

1) He's a role player we don't even have on our team. You think twice when you have that kind of beas against you. I'm still crazy as hell that we signed Prust, 100x better than Brown if you compare roles, but not really in the same league fighting wise as Orr, althought I'm sure it wouldn't be the KO some think.

2) He's easily double-shifted by Lupul, Kulemin or Van Riemsdyk when it's needed.

If he can't catch up to you, why would you care? It's not like he's Thornton who is a good enough hockey player to possibly hit you and back you into a corner. The only people who have anything to fear from Orr are Prust and Moen, both of them don't fear taking a few hits. If Orr tries to intimidate say, Plekanec, Plek will skate away, maybe slashing him on the way. The only risk Plekanec would take in such a situation is get called a "little girl" by hfboards posters.

I'd be much more afraid of big hitters like Phaneuf and Brown, or cheap shot artists like Grabovski, if I was a skilled player.

I was there earlier. Always weird to read. TBH, bias come into play on both sides' GDTs, but they do have a few delusions they should take care of

To be expected. Some are laughing about the Habs' bottom 6 compared to theirs, which is kinda funny because now the Habs' bottom 6 resembles what their bottom 6 should have resembled under Burke. Others think the Habs' defense is 'the worst in the NHL', heheh. While not the best, it's a lot better than what they have even without Subban.

Their offense is pretty interesting. They have 3 lines that could potentially be a threat offensively.
