A scoring DD is a bandwidth killer.
I think winning+friday night might have more to do with it

Great news. Outcome was uncertain, looked like a potentially serious injury at the time. Above info confirmed by le Journal de Mourial:

Quote:
Bournival n’a pas subi une blessure sérieuse même s’il a pris beaucoup de temps pour se relever. Après la rencontre, il marchait sans béquille et il pouvait mettre un peu de poids sur sa jambe droite.

«Je suis correct», a simplement dit l’attaquant recrue à sa sortie d’un petit bureau pour une rencontre avec les médecins de l’équipe.

Michel Therrien a parlé du courage de Bournival.

«Tu gagnes le respect de tes coéquipiers, en posant des gestes de la sorte, a dit l’entraîneur en chef. Encore ce soir, j’ai aimé ce que j’ai vu de lui.»

Pour le bilan médical, Therrien a été assez bref. «Il a subi une contusion», a-t-il précisé.

Bournival représentera donc un point d’interrogation pour le match contre les Penguins de Pittsburgh

Surely Bourque plays over Parros, right?

A lot of guys here disagreed with that.

Even though I agree with the youth movement, I have never included Marky in the trade effective vets for youth/picks approach. I do include Gio, Moen and Bourque however. And possibly Pleks.

Marky is where you and I diverged LG.

I was right. You were wrong. I am a better man than you, smarter, faster and stronger, and a better lover of women. I am magnificent, a god, while you are you just a lowly bug.
You forgot modest too.

Against Pens... One would hope if Bournival can't go.
next Sat against the Laughs, he is in the lineup and you hope he doesn't fall flat on his face.
... Just saying.

That game was a gift from the heavens. Bad call on DD goal, Budaj shutting the door on 3 breakaways, and 6 minutes of running around waiting for the buzzer. Cost us a bruised foot.

I took my dog out to piss in -4 weather this morning. His doggy ass wasn't as tight as this league is right now.

I never though it looked very serious. Guys get shots on the feet all the time and it's rarely anything serious.

Bourque is injured, didn't skate Thursday so he may be unavailable.

I don't know which game you were watching but these guys were good last night. Gallagher flying to the net. He must of been in 5-6 scrums because of crashing the net.

Murray was throwing guys around like they were nothing. There was a chance in the second where the puck was loose in the net two caps swinging away. Two arms he grabbed each of them and was pushing them out. Big hits on the wall. He got the puck out decently tonight as well. There were instances were the plays that Murray was in that if Bouillon was, Washington probably would of scored.

Just because guys don't get on the score sheet doesn't mean they weren't good.

I found those two stuck out the most in a great way for what they brought the team.

Well I tough that Gallagher didn't have as much jump has he usely has.In Murray's case, maybe playing with Diaz made me overlook his good play infront of the net.

Patch-DD-Gallagher actually has been actually pretty effective.

Seems Patch and DD can do wonder together when they have a.. "disruptive" elements that rush and draw the opposition; a la Cole (through size and speed) or Gallagher (through sheer bloody mindedness)

How do you disregard the fact that every freakin incident on our part that doesn't look like anything happens to be a whole lot? I mean, yes, when players received shots and limp on the ice, yet are able to follow a little and can get on their bench by themselves, that, I don't pay too much attention to. But somebody unable to get up and has to be carried out....it has to be concerning, at least as far as we're concerned.

With no salary cap..sure..we could do better. They are both extremely underrated on this board though. They both bring intangibles that aren't readily noticeable, including shot blocking and gap control. Diaz in particular has excellent gap control..doesn't give the opposition tons of room to create..his mobility allows him to remain close to opposing forwards.

I think Diaz gets far too much criticism on here. Third most minutes on a team with the second best goals against in the league. He can't shoot and he's not overly physical..but every dman with rare exceptions has a negative or two to his game. He's smart, mobile, competitive, good first pass, good vision. A lot of teams would welcome him on their bottom pairing, which is where the Habs now have him. When healthy - I think the Habs' defence is well above par.

The Habs really kind of fell asleep after the 3rd goal, didn't they? They just refuse to play hard all game. It's weird.

Problem is that to build a very good D, we are now facing a couple of things. What do we do with Markov? I,d re-sign him 'cause we have no other choices frankly. But that's not done yet. How much do you give Diaz if you keep him? And Diaz right isn't used as a bottom pairing guy like you say teams would welcome him. And I will believe that you cannot have that combination of not physical and/or slow as turtle with 4 of your 6 D. While they do have some intangibles, as a group, they do miss some tangibles. Just in players heads, when they know that Emelin is on the ice, their have their heads way up and feel they have less time to do the play....compared to when Diaz and Gorges are around. Diaz was suppose to be an offensive d-man. He's not. He's another Gorges with surely better puck dribbling skills and faster, while Gorges more defensively effective and less scared. Still, while each of them individually aren't THAT bad, as a group is makes it a very average group for me. Markov is aging...do we keep him? If the answer is as it should be...yes...he's still aging and his best years have to be behind him. At one point....not only we're missing a great #4 with Emelin on the 2nd pairing....but we're about to miss a #1 or #2 depending of where you see Subban....And that's not that much a long term problem....

As far as salary cap goes.....it pisses me off that in the sport like baseball where there should be a cap meaning that the Expos could come back and be legit.....hockey is a sport where we're the rich ones who would benefit from not having it.....but we do. But that's another story.....

Well, we've got a starter near the top of his game, and possibly the best backup in the league, so there's a strong argument to be made, that's for sure.
