Eller must be secondary tank because Price seems to be taking all the hits.

Yea, Eller is the off-tank. Price is the main tank.

Am I the only one who thinks Brendan Nash was pretty good?

I was at the Bell Center tonight and he's the guy that impressed me the most from the guys for which I had no expectations. I had never seen him played, but this guy has so much poise, he's big and has a good offensive instinct. I can really see him play in the NHL 2 years from now.

Loved PK, he needs to work on some things, like taking better decisions with the puck, but damn it's so good to have him.

Andrei played strong all night, made some nice passes and worked his ass off, was nice to see.

Desharnais, I thought he played a decent game, but was not overly impressed with him. I would of liked to see more of him.

Gionta played pretty good, every time he has the puck he takes the right decision. When he has the puck, i'm really confident he'll make the right play.

Ryan White >3, wish we would have a place for him, the guy wants so much to play in the NHL and his willing to do anything for it. We need guys like him.

Max Pac hustled out there, he had some nice chances, he played good and I liked his game, he looks stronger on his skates this year, but damn he really can't finish, and i'm not sure he will be able to have a career in the nhl if he can not finish.

My thoughts on the game, was at the Centre Bell.

Gomez: Still can't finish properly, but did his thing with Gionta.
Gionta: Was Gionta, what else can you say.
Eller: I liked what I saw, but wasn't as impressed as some of you. Thought he hogged the puck a bit at times and played on his own, not using his teammates. Kind of understand what McKeen's meant when they wrote he overhandles the puck. Might be more at ease at center.

Darche: Excellent, did what he does best went to the net, even delivered a solid hit. Did what he needed to ensure his place.
Desharnais: Stimulated the offence all night long. Definitely deserves a long hard look, too much talent to overlook. Could see him fill a Metropolit kind of role.
Kostitsyn: One of his on game, we all know he can deliver and must deliver more consistently.

White: Highlight reel kind of game with some turnovers, leading to chances against, manufactured a goal with a tip, solid on a PK breakaway and fought. Overall positive impression, but would like a little less errors from a guy like him.
Paccioretty: Has to get his head up when skating up ice or he's gonna get killed someday à la Lindros. Got some chances, AHL bound needs to rediscover offensive touch he had in college or transform himself into a defensive guy. Not sure if he can accomplish that. The skills are there, the hockey sense remains a question mark for me.
Boyd: Already had a favorable opinion of him, I'd describe him as Pyatt like. Good worker, excellent fluid skater.

Engqvist, Schultz & Wyman: Good hustle, but did not show any particular outstanding skills.
Schultz has some oomph, but needs at least 2 AHL years to threaten. Skating needs works.

Subban: Dominant, tried too much at times like he always does. Some turnovers, that he needs to cut down on as he matures. Moved really well on the PP with the club playing an umbrella-like set-up. Didn't like to see him clip an opponent, but then saw it was Ruutu and thought it was not so bad.
Henry: Great guy to have in the organization, when you need an emergency call-up. Moved well on the ice, even went joined the rush at times.

Carle: Really impressed with him in his own zone. Solid, assertive. I like him a lot. If only he can stay healthy. Has the tools to be an NHLer. See him becoming a solid 4th guy.
Nash: Good skills, might be able to become something in the AHL.

Picard: Too soft for me in his own zone. Was alright, but I do not have a lot of faith in him. He's good in the o-zone.
O'Byrne: Good enough, nothing really new to report. Looks like a depth guy.



Auld: Hated the signing, did not show anything to make me change my mind. He was not bad per se, he made some good saves. Giguere-lite type of goalie, drops in tall tight butterfly and does not do much else. I just hate him. Had to be better options out there, seriously.
Mayer: My kind of goalie, athletic. Really solid blocker. Moves well and quickly. Lots of promise there, has to work on being a bit more in control. Awful turnovers handling the puck.

PK.

Eller, good first game though I don't understand the furious love. He definitely has the tools but he's needs a little more experience to fill out his top line role, IMO. Not a fan of Pully but I might see him start on the top line.. maybe because I see Eller doing very well on the thrid, not the case with Pouliot... I don't know.

White would be a nice addition from time to time.

Deharnais is fun to watch. Unfortunately our team is not well suited to give him a real chance, a well deserved chance. Hope for the kid he get's traded to a ML typa team to enjoy a Grabovski like situation.

Judging from this thread, many posters think Gauthier got real value back in the trades he made over the summer.When there's talk of Pouliot playing on the 3rd line with Boyd, the Habs' depth is obviously percolating down to the third line and even the fourth. Think back to the start of last season, when JM was puzzling over how to get any production from SKost, Latendresse. d'Agostini, Chipchura, and Pacioretty. It became necessary to trade for Pouliot and then Moore.

You're obviously drunk (unless you're dyslectic), so I don't think you're in the best position to say who exactly had good games or not

Eller: Great skills and good speed. But what impressed me the most was his lower-body strength. This guy is a great skater and definitely has some skills. He's NHL-ready IMHO, but he needs time to adapt. IMHO got less help from Gionta and Gomez than Palushaj got from Cammalleri and Plekanec the other day.

Kostitsyn: Definitely looks like he's in better shape. I'm eager to see what he'll do against NHLers this season, I don't want to get my hopes too high. But he definitely did better than Pouliot IMHO.

Boyd: Quick, fast, hardworking and serviceable bottom-6 player who could be a better fit in a less physical Eastern Conference. Willing to go in the firty areas. Good addition if he can bring that this season.

Subban: As quick as ever, with more grit and more size. I love him. He's the real deal. What can I add?

Mayer: Now he was the one who impressed me the most. He's a good goalie with good qualities. He might become an NHLer some time down the road. He definitely has the tools... Just has to get a toolbox now. We'll forget quickly about Desjardins.

Darche: I never liked him, and never will. He's a poor hockey player, with poor instincts and poor hockey sense. Nevertheless, he's a 13th forward with a good attitude. As long as he's not used in a more important role, I'll shut up.

Desharnais: Has good qualities, but I fail to see him making it with us. Does good things, but lacks this speed/size to be a very effective NHLer. It's a pity, because he definitely has crazy skills.

Engqvist: Interesting and intriguing player with good skills. I have to see more of him though.

Picard: Definitely not that impressed. I can see his offensive skills, but he has Marc-Andre Bergeron'esque hockey sense, and that scares me... especially since he's not half of what is the real one offensively.

Auld: He's a serviceable 2nd goalie. I liked him... for now.

O'Byrne: Didn't notice him, which isn't a bad thing. Would like him to be more physical.

Pacioretty: One full AHL year, please. Called it from day one: this guy was too raw for the NHL. Eller, White and Pyatt are now all ahead of him.

White: I like this kid from day one, and I still loved him tonight. Will be a great Hab, and while Pyatt did good in last year's playoffs, he might have to wakeup (not that he did bad the other night, just that White was better IMHO), because White is definitely standing up so far.

Carle: Poor in his own zone, not a fan of the player, still did better than Weber IMHO.

My three stars of the game:

1. Subban
2. Mayer
3. Kostitsyn

HM: Eller, White

ill be honest, i liked Eller but wasnt overly impressed. Then again, it was his 1st game, so he probably had nerves and played on the wing. So all in all it was a good game by him. One thing I dont get is if the team wants to put Eller on the wing, why didnt they just trade for a winger as opposed to shifting a centerman to the wing?

Because he can play center too.

Good size fast skating center with potential top 6 talent who can be used on the wing is worth more than a potential top 6 winger.

I thought the exact same thing. He was our best defenseman on the ice tonight, I really believe it. I was at the bell center at pretty good seats so I could see this kid is a fluid skater. Big, and not offensively retarded. good to see

I'm really surprised how solid Eller is on his skates. Hard to knock him off his feet.

There was one particular part of the game where he was standing beside the Sens net and someone (I think it was Fisher) charged at him and looked like he was going to completely flatten Eller, except he just bounced right off him.

Ryan White better make the team. I love this guy

Not too far fetched to see Desharnais part of this team. While we have some talented players, if we needed a guy like Bergeron on the team with his weaknesses, something tells me that Desharnais could be just as useful on the PP and not be detrimental to his team on a 4th line. Who needs to get out of the lineup.....that's another story. And that speed excuse is overrated. He gets where he needs, not lightning fast but doesn't have to be thanks to his smarts.

Most "specialists" say he can't play a third or fourth line given his style but they could have him play on those lines, yet when Pouliot and Andrei are playing like crap Jacques could try David in the wings on the first two lines.
