In addition to that there are some indications that the fact he was so unhappy about not making the Olympic team on the first go round really affected the locker room. MSL may have played well in the month between the "snub" and actually making the team, but the rest of them not so much. And why wouldn't they, it's a team full of kids and your captain obviously wants out. Not good.

Lastly, not only did he request a trade but he only would go to one team. Way to handcuff the organization. Fortunately Yzerman was able to get Sather to bid against himself, but it could have been much worse.

Gotcha,I wouldn't be thrilled with him either. It's too bad he acted that way. Good way to tarnish his TB legacy. It's not surprising though as he and TT are close friends. They seem to be much alike in many ways.

uh... he gave up on his team and fans in the middle of the season after 10 plus years. He's a selfish ***** and not the man we thought he was, had he shut his mouth had done this in the off season it would be different. It's sad really, but his own doing.

Carey Price out for the rest of the series.

Habs fans aren't allowed to use it as an excuse, because, well, they said we couldn't. Let's see if they practice what they preach.

Increasing speculation here that rookie Dustin Tokarski will be the one to get the call in net for the Habs' tonight.

Exactly this. They'll understand how differently a team plays in front of an inferior goaltender.

Habs fans are already giving up and going straight through the grief stages to acceptance. At least in my house. I've tried to limit my 'NOW YOU KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE' to a minimum.

Not really a fan of both teams, but it's sure enjoyable to see one of them fall apart. Won't even be mad to see Rangers advance and then fall against the mighty West.

Now I guess Habs fans will learn a thing or two about how it was for us when we faced them

Well, they'd still have to have Subban and 3 other top skaters playing <100%

Well, in fairness, by this time of year, most people are less than 100% in some way, shape, or form.

It sucks that Carey Price got hurt, but yeah, in some respects the Habs will get to taste the medicine that they benefited from in the first round. I know we're all still bugged at the poor luck the Lightning had with Bishop in that first round series because, well, it's going to be tough to win when going from a Vezina 'keeper to a below average 'keeper.

Below average keeper that team had no faith in

Hell, the fact our guys were more confident when Guddy was in net shows how utterly useless Lindback was at times...

Except that the Canadiens weren't involved in Bishop's injury. At all.
I also don't think this series is a lock for the Rags. At least not yet.

Ah poor Habs fans..their team should have no problem beating the Rangers, having your starting goalie go down means nothing.. Atleast they have someone that looks like a back-up and not a steaming pile of poo.

As much as I want the Rangers eliminated it would be great to see Montreal get eliminated after losing their Vezina caliber goaltender.

Wasn't trying to say that but, upon reflection, I really didn't phrase that as well as I would have liked to.

If we assume that Rangers will go to the finals then I hope they will be swept by Hawks or Kings

At what point does the media mentioning MSL's mom start to become CNN with the missing plane?

Is there a website to view complete old print game programs?

I'm finding a certain amount of interest in the interwar years again.

the only argument I could see for Pierre McGuire as Pens GM (which he's denied interest in, and no one believes) is the Ben Chang defense.
