I don't agree with it but I can still see the angle MT is trying to take with bouillon.

I'm not saying Bouillon is better then Beaulieu or anything (and I'm not a Bouillon fan). But having Bouillon play a good 12-14min will help the other Ds. When Bouillon plays 18-20min, that's when he gets exposed. Don't you think?

During the Bruins series I saw a mattress being thrown out on the side of the road with Habs and Rangers logos on it. I took it as a sign that Montreal and New York would win their series.

I just saw something that has topped that. The Habs are winning this series.

Agreed. Right now Bouillon would probably be an asset, mostly because he's better in his own zone than Beaulieu and therefor can play more minutes to lessen the load on Markov and Subban.

Beaulieu is gonna be a gem, and he's already good. I'm a huge fan, but I'm not against taking him out of the line up at this stage of the game. He'll be a main stray come October.

Meh more minutes for Bouillon just means less minutes for Subban don't you think? See two can play at this game.

Bouillon played 9 minutes his last game vs Boston and Beaulieu played 12 minutes game 2 vs Rags. He is in his Prime so he is capable of playing more. He is also the teams fastest player playing against one of the fastest teams in the league. He is better than Bouillon and his speed will be needed. Therrien shortened his bench late last game opting to go with more proven vets which would explain Beau's reduced icetime. I also heard that Beaulieu made a mistake last game. I would like to hear what happened.

Therrien is still undecided whether he wants to play a physical game or a speed game. With both Beaulieu and Bournival in he will be missing that physical presense. That's why he's undecided.

Maybe Therrien wants to go with Boullion since MSL is un gars de chez nous and kills us. Boullion is un gars de chez eux.

So, what's this thing I heard about the skirmish between Ranger org and Canadien's? Something about attending the practice?

Not cool. Hated it when Recchi said crap like this, we shouldn't be saying it either. Busted jaw... shut up about it. Not the least bit funny.

Beaulieu is well rested too.

And I don't get why you'd play the inferior defenseman when we don't have last change...

I don't see how it helps us win. We can hope for a great game from Cube, but this really doesn't make sense.

I certainly don't agree with this... How many pucks go off this guy on missed blocks? Sorry but I don't know how you come to that conclusion. Beaulieu may be a rookie, it is a risk to play him but he's infinitely better than Cube is.

At first my reaction to the possibility of having Bouillon back...meh, I don't care, it's not like Beaulieu is lightinh it up, but then I recall the Boston series... ffs, do not play that idiot who's great at screening the goalie and deflecting pucks into his net !

My question to you.

In this series, neither Bouillon nor Murray have played a single game.

Did you notice that the Habs have had a lot of trouble exiting the zone and have resorted to multiple icings?

And that is happening with our 1st and 2nd DMan pairings.

Again, Murray and Bouillon nowhere to be found on the bench or the ice. That excuse was nothing more than a fanboy meme that is repeated so often that it becomes fanboy truth.

Listen, I think I'm the BIGGEST NB fan on this board, but I'm OK if they put Bouillon in with Weaver for game 4. NB played what, 9 minutes last game? Bouillon can do 10-12 without worrying about it, it's when he does more that it becomes a concern. If he can play an extra 2-4 minutes that NB isn't playing, that takes a little bit off Subban. Subban is struggling BIG TIME. A few less minutes might be a big help.

Either way, I'm not concerned. I know Bouillon gets crapped on a lot, but he's experienced enough that if we can keep him to <12 minutes he can be an asset.

Thing about the icings is that they are completely unprovoked. Not even under pressure, just terrible decisions. Every single period except OT last game, the DD line iced the puck on the first shift. We keep trying this Cherry style puck of the glass thing that every team, including boston figured out how to counter -- i.e., by covering the points. This has led to soooo many chances against and minutes spent in our end.

When we play our game, we have players supporting a breakout rush with good, crisp passes. If we could get that going again, half our problems are solved. Bourque-Eller-Gio were the best at that quite frankly, but obviously involves the D first.

Still wish Chucky was with Eller, since Vanek and Pleks are not playing well. If Pleks can raise his game, then maybe it'll pay off, like in OT (still a fluke). I have given up on Vanek. Outside chance Gionta has a great game. He realizes how important this is, despite being awful this series thus far.

Who would you want on a 2 on 1 with Pleks: Stephen or Brian (Gio)?

Also, (important) is there a way to chose a default font (without having to go advanced all the time)? We need a win.
