I Love Todd Simpson, Congrats On Your First Game As A Hab

I Thought he played great last night, and his physical presence on the ice was awesome. I much rather see him over Streit.

So to Honour his first game as a Hab, here are some memerable pictures from his first game, enjoy!

This second picture is somewhat questionable....

But he did play a great game in his role, he really looked huge with our jersey on!!!

Congrats to Todd, if he can just continue playing within his limits, he will be a good asset for this team as #6 or #7.

Go Todd Go!

Simpson certainly didn't look out of place last night, and overall had a good night, but it was against a Washington team that didn't provide us with exactly the hardest of challenges, so.....

I think if we keep our expectations of Simpson realistic, we shouldn't be disappointed. Seems to be a real good 'team' guy. I would assume we can't have too high of expections of a guy who has been a healthy scrathcy 18 times this year (14 with Chicago, who don't exactly have one of the top defensive units in the league).

I definitely like him as our #6/#7 guy. He didn't hesitate after someone took a cheap run at Murray. Simpson is tough as nails.

Maybe it's because they didn't play him enough. Never know whats going on in Chicago.

- I like the Simpson, Langdon type guys. We need more guys like this, but with skill. Stick up for teammates, knows the business, knows what goes on. Stuff like that.

Just reminds me of what he said when he was traded.

Said to the TSN reporter, asking him how he can describe himself for the Habs fans listening, that he was known as a stay-at-home defenceman, though there's a lot of his ex-coaches that would've preferred that he just stayed at home.....

Seemed a nice guy then, looks like a nice one now!!! l

The fact that he immediately dropped the gloves to back up his teammate won him big points with me. He's a gutsy player. If Quintal's retirement left any kind of a toughness void on defense, Simpson may be a good guy to fill it. (We do have Souray, but I'd rather not see him in the box for fighting.)

I was actually thinking of starting a thread for this as well. Looks like you beat me to it!!

I think it was great when he dropped the gloves without hesitation to protect Murray.

I even thought that he did a good job the PK with Komisarek. They were able to clear the front of the net and they were clearing the puck with ease. (I know it was only washington but still was nice to see.)

And overall I think he played a good game. Basically he did what he had to do. And not to bash Steit but at this poin in the season I would much rather have simpson for some toughness than have streit. I think he will play a key role for us down the stretch. (Role: enforcer and toughness on the blueline)

I was really really impressed...but again it is only 1 game. Thought he was solid. Better skater then I expected.

I would also like to add that Murray has impressed me. Solid 4th line energy player. As I watched last night, on separate plays there was a dump-in. On one dump-in, Murray skated in hard and hit the defenceman. On the other play, Bonk watched the puck and waited for a teammate to chase. Small little things like this add up...

Wow, your exoectations were not really high eh...I thought he was pretty slow out there. He was good when he didn't had to move much in his territory, but when he had to move faster, it was painful to watch.

But he's good in his role. I still like him.

Yep! I like the guy too.. thought he played well and was pleased to see him give it to Clymer after his elbow to the face of Murray (Was happy to see Murray go after Clymer later in the game too)... this is the kind of guy that helps you win big games. No nonsense rough guys that aren't just goons.

So if he has a bad game tonight, how many threads will blast Gainey for wasting a future gem of a 6th round pick.

Habs win everything is great, everyone is great, yea!
Habs lose, everything sucks, Gainey is a clod, boo-hoo
