The battle for this 13th forward spot is interesting, but none of the candidates really showed they belong tonight.

I don't know what will happen, but up to date, nobody comes to mind.

His anticipation was definitely lacking. I felt he was trying to go the right way with the puck, but had trouble anticipating the pace of the attacking forwards.

This.

I agree totally and really that may be disappointing, but , we only saw half of the young guys tonight.

AK will have a great season. I am convinced.
He's too streaky. I say we trade him as soon as he gets a nice streak going when his value is at its highest.

hey guys, I know this is the Habs board but you probably saw more of the game than I did. what did you think of Dallas as a team and some of the individual players? I only got to see the first and last ten minutes. Thanks.

Yet, Diaz showed me more on the PP, patience, good shot. While he doesn't like to be hit, he was still ahead positionaly than Emelin tonight. Again...don't get me wrong....I'm not writing off Alexei...obviously.
agreed on Emelin, I found he was a bit lost in his own end...but you can definitely see he's a player though.

I also thought Diaz was a lot more polished in his own end, he's a heady player with a quick first step, he might not start the year with the Habs, but like Emelin...definitely looks like a player

I also thought Woywitka was decent too...same with Blunden up front

Vincour was everywhere. Probably their best player.

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.
As of right now, I agree... he kinda reminds me of Obyrne...i just dont want to judge the kid too quickly

Well, Trotter was awesome tonight. Maybe the only one to compete for the 13th spot... or Engvist.

I'd like to see Diaz and Spacek alternate in the lineup. Spacek is too old and too inconsistent to play a full 82-game season and Diaz needs a yr to slowly integrate and get adjusted to the level of play in the NHL.

Would of liked to see Gallagher centering AK tonight. We might of had more scoring poor AK did not have much for team mates.

lmao, see what i mean. We should trade him for a checker who isn't half the hockey player, preferably an english, canadian who gives an honest effort each night

Any video highlights from the game? I'd like to see the tribute in the beginning, the goals, the fight, and Yemelin's hip check. Thanks!

Tomas Vincour had a great game, I thought. Took the hipcheck from Yemelin and came right back at him. He was buzzing around the ice tonight.

The Ribiero/Ryder/Morrow line looked solid.

That was about all the attention I paid to the Stars tonight though. Too busy figuring out jersey numbers. If Berger didn't get that penalty, I would have never known who 34 was.

Hopefully the answer to that question will come in the trade.

Vincour is a sum*****

Gogo was solid overall. I still hate Ribeiro. Redlight Raycroft was okay. Hmmm.. don't remember much else.

One thing needs to be addressed: FACE-OFF'S

We are incompetent in the face-off circle.

It will kill us over the course of the season, on PK' and on PP's. For a team that prides itself with puck possession systems, we need to have someone capable of winning a face-off.

Hey I have to say, I was impressed by a guy I wanted us to pick in 2009, Tomas Vincour. Great game tonight. Ryder will fit right in with Ribs and Morrow. You're doomed with Raycroft....any chance you have other goalies in the system? Goligoski was also on another planet. I also liked Jake Dowell tonight. Same with Maxime Fortunus.

When I looked at Tinordi I thought about O'byrne, I hope he improve, but right now I could see him being a next O'byrne (which is still a capable NHLer). If he could be more mean he could still be a valuable asset.

Thank god for Marc Denis, he so better than Benoit Brunet.

Really couldn't tell you anything in detail because I didn't recognize half the names, but the Morrow-Ribeiro-Ryder line was dominant and creative and Goligoski had a bunch of nice moments in the offensive zone.

Yup. Was very apparent and frustrating. Considering that 4th line center spot is still wide open, I'd love the Habs to target a good faceoff man via trade.
