D'you know who I predicted would score the first goal in a game for the habs this year?

That's right. Erik Cole.

Oh ya.

Being in Winni sucks. I cant watch any of the games unless I have RDS. And I hate RDS SD

It's ok, I'm coming back soon...and then I will bask in all the glory that is Habs hockey in HD!

I saw "it" from Yemelin tonight.
100% agree. Biggest disappointment for me was Palushaj. I'd say Tinordi, because I didn't expect much, but he gave me what I thought he would, very little to be excited about at this point, still loads of time though.

3 Stars

1. AK
2. Cole
3. Yemelin/Weber

My thoughts on the game:

Kost was a beast
Yemelin got better and better as the game went on
Diaz had some nice moments but meh..will need to see more
Woywitka seemed slow to me
Trotter had a nice fist half but dissapeared in the 2nd half

tought palushaj had a good 2nd period, but was knocked off the puck way too easily in the 3rd

Tinordi needs to go back to the O and has a couple years of AHl in front of him, but def always need more time, take it easy on him

AK was the best forward tonight. Weber played well I think he is going to get better as season goes along. Yemelin is more than the stay at home dman we thought we were getting, he will chip in points as he gets more NHL experience.

Blunden was impressive and could make the team as 13- 14th forward and be used against tougher opponents.

Hmm, well from seeing this game, it's blatantly obvious that we're in for a long season. Montreal should keep ahold of their picks, the lottery is an absolute certainty.

Terrible. Most of these guys are so bad they wouldn't even make the NHL roster on any other club.

thought yemelin played well and get it right 'cause that's how it's spelled on his ******* jersey!

more mobile than i thought.
palushaj is never going to make this team's top 6...maybe in the top 9
not in top 6...he's not a 4th liner either

While we need to be patient and he needs some time and all....what's a real concern as far as Tinordi is concerned is decision making and hockey sense. That's is the hardest to teach even with some time. Let's hope he will.

I thought Diaz struggled a bit in the second half of the game tbh.

Yemelin: Way better than I thought with the puck. Great skating, good speed, and nice vision all around the ice. Might have to work on his defensive zone postionning, but that'll come with time. He's NHL ready.

Diaz: Clever defenseman all around, but you can see he's got some shortcomings in his own zone. He also looked like the game wore off on his body as it went on. Good defenseman who will amount to something, but I do no agree with the assessment he looked better than Yemelin. 1st period went to Diaz. The other 2, Yemelin and it's not even close.

Cammalleri/Plekanec/Cole: They'll stay together. Forget it. These three just complement each other too well. Cole will do what is needed, and will do it with consistency.

Kostitsyn: In a way better shape than he was one year ago, you can see this just by watching that one shift where he kept coming back. Impressive and promising. Having his own line might do him some good.

Palushaj/Engqvist: I wish they would be aware they're battling for an NHL spot. They are not alert, they look slow to go after loose pucks and showed no intensity. Disappointing.

Tinordi: Not a good game for him. We couldn't watch him use that mean streak and he didn't show a lot of physical abilities. I still say this isn't a good sample, and that we shouldn't be too quick to write him off.

These guys are 1,2 or even 3 years away from cracking our line up.

Yemelin's poise with the puck was much better than I assumed before hand. I think most people assumed he'd come in and hit people, then dump the puck out of the zone. He carries it well, knows how to protect it, and makes smart decisions in the offensive zone.

I think once he gets used to playing with someone, the defensive zone will sort it's self out, but he wasn't bad on D at all.

Assuming that Yemelin had a spot locked up coming in, I saw no players who threatened to break into the lineup and no veterans in danger of losing a job.

Weber easily, Diaz will need some AHL seasoning. Next year we might have both in the NHL.

Well there was Gill, but we all know what to expect from Gill in a pre-season game

Surely. I know. But you can still assess a guy's play based on how nervous he is and how he thinks the game. Mind you, I've seen Tinordi play last year in the OHL for 10ish games....and I had the same analysis. And that was late in the year, the part where most say he was playing better. At that time, he still had slow feet, was not reading the play well and was low to react. So it's not something I saw just tonight. He's immensely a work in progress. And at one point, while we don't want to same result, the work in progress might be FISCHEResque....A long process that we might see with the Habs in another 4 years.
