Marcell Hossa was also one of the best Habs during preseason.

I don't know a lot about hockey, but I have the feeling that putting the best players one the ice is a good way of winning.

Obviously. The only thing is, 3 or 4 preseason games doesn't tell you who the best players are.

And Gainey/Savard don't agree with you. I heard Savard say that Lats wasn't even close to making the team, but it's a moot point now.

Anyway, right now is too late to call Latendresse back.
It was either from the beginning of the season or nothing

Yes, I agree, but the point is you blatantly stated he should have stayed with us from the start of the year, which has basically no backing.

Kostitsyn and/or Lapierre (depending on what role they want filled) are likely to be inserted in case of injury or anything like that.

Begin should be back, so that will glue Sundstrom to the press box. I'd rather see Downey out there than Nicklas, though.

That's a good point...just a few days ago i thought it was a formality for the habs to make the playoffs but now i could see it hapenning...i will be very disapointing if we still cannot clinch a playoff spot...
the way Atlanta has been playing i wouldn't put it pass them that they could actually win their last two contests...
I could see Tampa Bay win their last game...this means Montreal has to come out on Tuesday and play their "A" game...this means players like Koivu & Kovalev will have to bring their level of play up
It would be dissapointing to see the Habs lose the playoffs because of 1 measly little point but it wouldnt be a first as it happened years ago when all Montreal had to do was at least get a tie against Ottawa in their last game of the season and they couldn't even manage to do that

It'd definitely be a good idea to have him hanging around the team if we make the playoffs, though.

You don't want too much of a circus of players called up, but Cote, Lapierre, Danis, Kostitsyn, AND Chipchura should all be Black Aces, IMHO.

I agree, and after seeing Chip play for the Bulldogs I think he can help this team now. He has a very mature game. He is defensively responsable, is a very strong penalty killer, and is a very solid, and smart forechecker. He's just so strong on the puck and along the boards.

Chip isn't going to be in the ahl for long. I would like to see him called up right now, and even if he doesn't stick at the beginning of next year, my bet is his first call-up to the NHL will be his last one.

Then stop trolling please. If you're looking forward to reading excuses as to why we were eliminated, you're clearly not a Habs fan.

So if we make the playoff, you get out of the board and go whine with the Leafs?
