This is a classic example of Martin stubbornly putting too much focus on one aspect of a player's play. In Sergei's case, it's his work ethic. In Darche's case, his skating. Martin will use Pyatt over Darche because Pyatt skates better. However, Darche has proven that he has the ability to deliver results regardless. Pyatt is not there yet. I love the kid and see him as a staple on our third line starting next year and for the next 10 years. But he hasn't figured out how to be a factor at the NHL level yet; and Darche so far has been able to make tangible contributions.

Darche has been quite invisible the last few games IMO. If the decision is Pyatt or Darche, I honestly can't complain either way.

Hopefully Cammy comes back with a bang, getting a hatty in his first game back.

Tom Pyatt would be the easy scratch for me. He brings very little right now.

Pouliot - Gomez - Gionta
Cammalleri - Plekanec - Kostitsyn
Kostitsyn - Moore - Bergeron
Darche - Metropolit - Lapierre

Agreed. I'm willing to go on the record by saying that both guys will see some pressbox time in the near future (unless we see a new rash of injuries).

I find that kind of weird... oh well, go habs.

I wish Trotter was in the lineup, and Lapierre was sucking farts out of dead chickens instead.

I agree. We obviously aren't going to be hitting everything that moves, but I feel like we have become more a team-toughness team a la detroit.

I know it may seem unbelievable, but we have not had this particular top 6 for a full game all year long. We iced them in a game against Florida but AK got injured in the first period and didn't return until after the Olympics.

I know last night sucked, and we're back a bit into that worry phase. But i think we should all take a step back and remember that this was the exact position we were praying for when Markov went down in game 1. For those (like myself) who hadn't written off the team completely, all we could hope for was that by the time he and everyone else came back healthy, we would still be fighting for a playoff spot. Well everyone is pretty much back and we're right in the thick of it. And now 2 really good scoring lines! Go Habs!

Sans surprise, Cammalleri a patiné aux côtés d’Andrei Kostitsyn et Tomas Plekanec à l’entraînement, tandis que Bergeron a remplacé Moen sur le troisième trio à la gauche de Dominic Moore et Sergei Kostitsyn.

They may scrape into the playoffs by the skin of their teeth, but this is not the make up of a team that can handle playoff style hockey.

Detroit and New Jersey have fared very well in the playoffs with small forwards and there is no reason why this team can't do the same thing. This team has enough players who go to the dirty areas of the ice and that is all that really matters.

The size issue is a media driven fallacy. Too many people just regurgitate what they see in print and before you know it there is some kind of consensus that has somehow become fact.


Goaltending, speed, mental fortitude, guts and facial hair are what win Stanley Cups.

Bergeron on the third line with Moore and SK
according to HIO, they have it quite differently...

Michael Cammalleri is back in his usual spot on left wing on a line with Tomas Plekanec and Andrei Kostitsyn wile Marc-André Bergeron is on the fourth line with Glen Metropolit and Sergei Kostitsyn. Both are expected to play tomorrow in Buffalo.

Travis Moen won't be in Buffalo. He suffered a cut to his forehead from Matt Cullen's skate.

Moen's spot on the third line will be filled by Mathieu Darche.

I realize that Darche has been more productive offensively than Pyatt but he is a liability defensively due to his poor skating. Considering that Darche doesn't score very often, I'd say that I would have to agree with playing the superior defensive player (Pyatt).

NJ was relying on one of the best goalies in NHL history while Detroit had 3 of the 10 best NHL players when they won the Cup.

It’s not the case in Montreal!

Size is not a panacea but it helps you win 1 v 1 battles. You can’t completely dismiss its importance ("... The size issue is a media driven fallacy...")... especially come playoffs time. I share the same concerns than TheCH regarding our lack of size/grits, especially upfront.

Each team has its deficiencies: a lack of size/grits upfront is one of ours.

We need Moen; without him we are dangerously entering deep in soft territory... imo!

Lines from ckac.com

Benoit Pouliot - Scott Gomez - Brian Gionta

Michael Cammalleri - Tomas Plekanec - Andrei Kostitsyn

Tom Pyatt - Dominic Moore - Sergei Kostitsyn

Mathieu Darche - Glen Metropolit - Maxim Lapierre

So none of the IO-Rds.ca or ckac.com have the same lineup

Can't wait for Bergeron to be back on the PP, can't believe that it's general consensus that he won't be back next year, even if we don't sign a replacement

I would sit Darche, he has become complacent imo, completely invisible the past few games. Pyatt brings something to our team identity. Seriously, he's the fastest player on this team is he not? Maybe Moore, Pleks or Gomer maybe, but I'd still say Pyatt.

Also Cammalleri... nuff said. Going to be a good game vs. Buffalo
