They just said on RDS (Renaud Lavoie) that it's Price in nets on Saturday against the Leafs.

Based on Lapierre's play last year when he was called back, if Sergei continues to play that well.....he won't be staying.....

Why throw anyone else in there, hes played them a few times and done well, Huet or Halak are not fresh at this lvl, hes played fairly well his past couple of games.

I don't think anyone was suggesting anyone else should start. I just said I thought I read Huet would.

Good news, I'd like to see Price vs Toronto and then Huet the game after.

I think he should definitely be in the lineup saturday. Judging by tonight's performance he is NHL ready. Good strength, great skating excellent vision, still some things to work on but he is way ahead of ryder in terms of development.

He's gona be a good one.

Always well positionned offensively, dosen't fear to cut through the crease... he's definitly going to be a very good NHLer. Needs a little polishing... I'd keep him... no way you can send him down right now if you didn't do it with borderliners.

sergei kostitsyn was pretty impressive, he created chances, totally looked calm and in his place, i remember him back checking when a defenseman would push up and i didnt see him turn over the puck

the few shifts he had with his big bro was really nice too see, they could pass the puck to each other with their eyes closed. i liked the shift when they played with plekanec, they passed the puck so quickly it was nice to see good offensive creativity for once

i really think he should stick with the club, i mean ryder isnt scoring, so is totally useless, sergei has speed, defensiveness awareness and with a little more nhl experience, should start creating more chances and finally put up some decent points for a rookie

very impressed!!!!

I never was impressed by his speed.. not tonight, not in Hamilton or in the CHL.. not live at the camp. He's got good speed, but not great speed.

Oh man

About Sergei i think he did very well tonight, you can see he read the play well and keep his feets moving in the offensive zone. He's also pretty fast to get to the puck.

He need to get better on the defensive side and im sure he will work on it and the coaches won't expose him. At one point the Flyers were deeply in our zone and he didn't seem to know what to do, they tried 2-3 times to get the puck out of the zone on his side until Higgins got it on the other side. This is normal at this point but im just pointing it out for those that didn't watch the game.

so do you think the habs did it on purpose to give Sarhei #74...

Carbo :"Give him 74 to show Ryder that he's better but at the same time not quite Markov"
Muller: "So by that toke you think Gui is better than everyone since he has 84?"
Carbo: "no thats how much weight he needed to lose"
Muller to Gui: "you FAT fuk...hit the bike"
Gui: "I hate alfredson"

Overall, not bad, 12+ minutes, PP time, 1st line. Can't ask for much more. Hopefully he's earned himself a longer look.
The PK stat is a mistake. If you look at the highlights on NHL.com, you see Lapierre and Streit killing the penalty up front.

Ryder made it to the NHL mainly because he had the ability to put the puck in the net...he always could. I don't think he's all of a sudden lost that ability, so I tend to agree with you. I'd pretty much bet the farm he won't be with the Habs next season and wherever he goes, I'd be willing to bet he'll turn into a 30 goal scorer again provided he has the right line mates of course. I really don't think Ryder wants to be in Montreal, despite his protestations of the past to the contrary. Ergo, I think he will be gone by the trade deadline and probably much sooner. Whether he can garner a 1st round pick, I dunno, maybe. As I said in another thread, I really think the Habs could use a decent (not spectacular now) #5 or #6 Dman with some size and toughness. Personally, I'd be happy if Gainey could land a decent #5 or #6 Dman with some size and toughness for Ryder. Dunno who that might be, but there should be a team around somewhere with an available Dman of that calibre who'd be willing to trade him for Ryder. Personally, in the tight trading environment of today's NHL, I think a trade like that for Ryder is probably Gainey's best bet. Maybe some poster with more knowledge of other teams' rosters might have some ideas on who might be a possibility. Anyway, just a thought.

I think that was a good but not great game for Sergei. Trust me folks he can do better, and will once he settles into things.

Throughout Jr the kid played well when he was in the flow of things. He looked a bit out of synch at times but that is going to come. Once he gets the hang of things you will like him better.

The kid does not play nervous at all and that stuck out last night.

He is normally more involved in the play and makes some hits. I think once he starts to feel comfortable, that side of the game will come out.

I like the way he drove to the net and drew that penalty. He is an average skater for sure, but he manages to do things like that to make things happen. He still managed to protect the puck. I think the guy has definitely earned the shot at a longer tryout.

If they are going to use him, he should stick. If they shorten his ice time, I think he needs to play in Hamilton.

Good first game Sergei!

You are correct. He is not really fast at all. He is an average skater. But he uses the speed he has well and protects the puck.

What he does do well is get on the puck quickly. He has a good jump and gets up to his top speed well.

The name of his game is his play away from the puck to get in position to either take a pass or make a shot. He did that really well in Jr.

The NHL is a big step and he needs to adapt his game some, but the thing I always liked about this kid is that he always seems to be improving some part of his game.

PS: The kid loses his cool sometimes. I hope he keeps it disciplined like last night.

I've seen that a couple of times before when he played in London. His brother's more of a gentlemanly player. Sergei definitely can sometimes blow a fuse on the ice... and off the ice...

Didn't show his mean streak last night but his gritty game should be a plus.

One game doesn't make a season or a carrer but S-Kost looked more NHL-ready than Grabovsky. I can see him staying in MTL, move Ryder on a third line with Chipchura and another winger maybe Latendresse where he will feel less pressure.

You are willing to bump Kovalev????????? Have you been watching the way he has played so far?

He is the most consistant player on the Habs this year.

I am sorry but Ryder is the most useless 30 goal scorer I have ever seen. If he is not scoring he is useless!
