Dumont plays an aggressive dump and chase style forcheck, and is perfect for the 4th line. As i said earlier, he reminds of ex-canuck Ryan Johnson. Feisty and aggressive.

Desharnais is such a good player. It amases me how great his puck control can be along the board even though he gets outmuscled.

Imagine two white on the same line

You love it?
I don't think Beaulieu is making the team this year. Let's see the rest of the exhibition season. He needs to put on some weight, and exhibition play is not like the regular season. I think the Habs will be patient with him.

Also, I'm not crazy about Eller as a winger. I think he is a better centre. I also think JM plans to use him as a shut down centre which is what he was doing at the end of last year.

Dumont suddenly makes that 13th spot battle really interesting. Palushaj is falling but this kid is rising fast.

antichambre L'antichambre à RDS

Manchette de Patrick Lalime "L'influence de Subban" Lalime considère que PK est un excellent joueur qui rend le monde autour de lui meilleur

Translation: PK's influence - he is such a talented player than he makes the players around him better.

Agree, or disagree?

Although I did see some improvement, I think their is room for a lot of improvement. He still has difficulty keeping up with the opposition's counter-attack and struggles to recover the puck along the boards.

We call up Trotter or Palushaj if we need some scoring replacement? We don't have a single option regarding offensive forwards, if one of our top-9 gets injured he will be replaced by 4th liners.

27:15 for Beaulieu. Consider this #habs fans: compare just drafted 18 year old D-men's 1st game to this kid. No comparison. Kid's got future

I'm confused... Didn't get the chance to watch the game tonight since I just got back home. You guys seem to say that Beaulieu did good during the game and watching the highlights on rds, they keep showing him doing bad plays.
I'd like a more in-depth analysis of his game, what did he do well?

PS: And now on l'Antichambre they're talking about him being the 6th D...

From the prospects Beaulieu, Gallagher & Dumont simply shone. Beaulieu may be just a year away from the NHL. Gallagher...wow,,, what a player.

Dumont is just the type of player we need but he's only 21 and I wouldn't call him up to put him in the press box for half the games. He either plays most of the games or he goes back to the A.

DeSimone is interesting and if they can get Avstin sorted out he'll be an excellent player.

Budjai looks like he'll be an excellent back up.

DD, Gallagher, and even Henry all look to have increased their foot speed over the summer.

All game I was thinking Gallagher needed to improve the strength on his stick, then he had that fantastic shift in the third. I still think he lost the puck too many times, but maybe he needed better linemates.

Beaulieu looked awesome, his skating style is a big contrast to PK's, longer strides but he still manages to gather speed really well, good puck control.

I think Dumont needs to get faster still, but I like him, always hustling.

Avtsin needs to put on some weight, he had a couple good shifts out there when he was put with Pac, and DD. Not a real smooth skater considering his build, but again I want to see him play with some real players.

What's the over/under on the first Budaj-Price thread? I know Mayer gets a lot of flack but he looked pretty solid in there.

He is one inch taller than Gionta, 2 inches taller than Theo Fleury

Only caught bits and pieces of the game, but from what I saw MaxPac looked to make an impact in all 3 zones. Love the dimension he brings to our offense. It's exciting to think of him, Cole and Kostitsyn spread out over our top 3 lines.

He played more than 27 minutes. He was NOT the 6th D. Beaulieu and Subban on the PP was sexy.

JM played him in all situations and he was very impressive. Great skater. Heads up passer. In fact, heads-up everything. Supported the rush. Beat forecheckers to the puck even if at first they had a step on him.

He wasn't physical though and he could stand to gain some weight. Overall, he is by far our best rookie.

That was a great game to watch, some seriously impressive showings from the young guys. Thinking ahead to the real battle for a final roster spot up front, I think these guys are up for the battle:

Dumont
Blunden
Engqvist
Trotter
Palushaj

So far that's about how I'd rank them as well. I'm probably overrating Dumont a bit, but I definitely think Palushaj has been the most disappointing player period these first two games. Really looked lost out there, creating nothing, knocked off the puck easy, etc. The top four guys have all shown good things, but Dumont and Blunden looked like ideal bottom 6/13th forward types. I dunno, fun stuff to watch anyway. Might be better for a guy like Dumont to spend a full second year in the AHL and continue to improve.

I think they are hyping him to stay with the team as the 6th Dman, not that he was tonight.

Also nice to see Ex-Habs Halpern and Hammer pick up a goal and an assist with the Caps tonight and Auld stopping all 15 shots against the Bruins. Pouliot picked up 2 minor penalties with the Bruins...some things just never change...

Yeah, read that wrong. I'm not on the let's keep Beaulieu train yet. It's one game and it's exhibition, but the kid was impressive.

I thought Gallagher looked better as the game progressed. I think he has what it takes to be an nhl player. Give him a couple years.

That's my point. Our team will have to be 100% healthy this season. Looking at the two preseason games, we dont have a lot of firepower waiting in the wings.

But we do have Cap Money sitting in the bank. We have that going for us.

Thanks buddy.

If Pacioretty gets injured this season, or Gionta or Cammy, who do we have to replace them with?

I watched the games. And depending on which post you read, you will see someone state that "Trotter wasnt that great" or "Palushaj was invisible".

I love the talent that we have on this team when we start the season. I simply made a comment that we dont have a lot of depth that can come from Hamilton and not disappear.

Sorry that offended you.

The goals were scored against their line. Not so good. Anyway, I didn't expect better once I saw the lineup JM iced against the Sabres. I didn't watch the game but I'm glad there were some bright spots and that Budaj wasn't torn apart. the two losses so far don't count in the standings and the Habs are still awaiting the arrival of their injured players, This shouldn't be a scary season for them.
