It may sound strange this early, but the habs better be ready for a desperate flyers team. They had a brutal start last season that cost them a coach, and they don't want to go down that road again, but they are already 0-2.

A desperate flyers teams versus a habs team that is probably feeling fat and happy after picking up 4/4 points on the road thus far. It doesn't sound like a good recipe for the habs, but I hope I'm wrong.

Good point but let's see how motivated the Habs will be.

Also, Flyers D is horrendous.

I doubt they're feeling too high on themselves. It's not like they went into TO or WAS and dished out a schooling. They came out on top of two games that could've gone either way.

Seeing how the Habs let the Flyers have Bernie Parent & Bobby Clarke back in the great Expansion days and Giroux this decade, it's about time the Habs rain on their parade this Sat.! Besides the Flyers will be in the enviable spot of a Top Ten pick next summer, probably drafting Zach Werenski to work their blueline with Travis in the near future like next season. So Flyer fans should be relishing these days of paying for Chris Pronger and knocking the Habs out of the playoff Finals a couple of yrs. ago, and look forward to the 2015 Entry Draft with passion.

I'm more concerned with the fact, that Boston Bruins are resting both David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron for the Habs homeopener. You have too know they haven't been happy losing to the Habs after a regular season like last years was for them. It cost the Habs a Stanley Cup Final IMHO, but sure felt great as a lifelong Hab fan to let the air out of their tires.

Another home opener to spoil? Agreed that the Flyers will be desperate as it is not desirable to start 0-3. This is a different habs team than we are use to. They won't be intimidated in Philly.

I will be much more content when players like McCarron, Crisp & Tangradi are available to step into the lineup for teams built to intimidate. Not that the Habs are the Smurfs they were 3 yrs. ago, now the balance that Bergevin has brought into the lineup can deal with those tactics. Resting Tinordi for the upcoming homeopener is a great idea, this kid is going to be a huge part of our next Championship have no doubt about that, IMHO. Add Emelin to that group of resting and ready for the Big Bad Bruins.

The other x-factor is having Tinordi on D. He might tame guys like Rinaldo.

I think we'll take this one. As others have said we haven't been rolling over teams, I doubt we'll take the flyers for granted.

Predictions:
Sekac first NHL Goal
Beaulieu 1A
Galchenyuk 1G

Without Subban and Markov we wouldn't be any better

Emphasis on the Flyers D but...

Gilbert against a physical team and two rookies to make up the Habs defense. It won't be easy, especially if the Flyers impose their aggressive side early in the first.

That would be one of if not the worst defenses in the league.

Hextall must regret not keeping Morin a bit longer. Talk about bad timing.
