So it's still always nice to hear.

That Parrish /Sopel trade looks more and more like a steal for you guys.

I hope it works out like a steal. But, I still think it was one of those deals that were made based on the needs of both teams. LA got what they want and the Isles got what they want.

I don't know how many of you caught the Rick's on-ice intervew after the game (the Isles interview the #1 star over the PA system). He commented more than once about how balanced and fast the Habs were.

I know things are tight in the East right now, but the Habs impressed the heck out of me last night. Without a red hot goaltender, it would not have even been close.
Looks like the Islanders haven't seen any good hockey in awhile, because I thought they were terrible. They couldn't complete a pass, move the puck out of their own end and were basically lazy and sloppy all over the ice. They played as individuals with no grit. Just awful.

But the Islanders were worse. That was not typical Islander hockey I saw last night. No grit whatsoever.

You and I did not watch the same game.

To be honest, I couldn't bring myself to watch the whole thing, so you could be right. The parts I watched tho, the Habs were just awful. I was so disgusted, I turned the channel.

yeah man what are you talking about, the Islanders were very sharp and collapsed the Habs incredibly. Denis Grebeshkov struggled for the Kings, perhaps he could put it together for you guys. But Tambellini was the definite steal, perhaps Taylor made a Milburry move by trading away 2 of his most promising prospects.

So true. I cannot believe the mistake Souray made when he put his stick accross and deflected it past Huet.

I just saw a poorly played hockey game by both teams...

Last nights game was not horrid, they just couldnt score. I dont know what people expect from a decent team. We are not champs.

Not necessarily untrue...whenever I think of the Habs, I think of generally well-skating teams that pay close attention to defense and have historically liked to create offense off of the counterattack, but I'm probably wrong.
