I’ve been watching the Montreal Canadiens since I was 6 years old and am now 35, in all those years of watching the Habs I’ve never seen such of an incompetent coach! Even with all those injuries the Habs still have a decent team but don’t seems to be able to bring it to the next level, even with all the signings 2 years ago Martin doesn’t seems to be able to get the maximum out of his players, he never shows emotions, always has his hands in his pocket and mumbles all the time and after every games the Habs lose he tells us that things seems worste then what they really are?
T.J. Oshie missed a practice on Monday. He will miss two Blues games as a result.
Blues general manger Doug Armstrong said Oshie will be scratched from the Blues’ next two games, beginning with tonight’s faceoff with Minnesota at Scottrade Center. Oshie also will not make the trip to Detroit for Wednesday’s game with the Red Wings.
Oshie, who has 10 goals and 20 assists in 30 games, missed practice on Monday with what was described as an “unexcused absence.”
Remember the days of having a true bonafide 1st line center, one that was a reliable point per game player or better. Remember the trades that brought in Gilmour, and Sundin. Players that some may consider Franchise players, or pretty close to it, players that were able to carry a team on there backs, and actually make an impact. This is exactly what the Leafs are in need of, Richards is not the answer, here’s the player Burke must target in the off-season.
In his first full NHL season, Vancouver’s Cory Schneider has become one of the league’s top backup goaltenders.
Serving as Roberto Luongo’s understudy is not the most stressful or demanding job, but it’s hard to argue with his results – a 14-3-2 record and 2.22 goals-against average.
Chris Osgood’s future is murky after the Detroit Red Wings placed the 38-year-old goaltender on long-term injured reserve Wednesday.
Osgood, who was activated last week, had hoped to play in a couple of games before the end of the regular season and be ready to back up Jimmy Howard in the playoffs.
But he continues to experience soreness in his groin after surgery on Jan. 11 for a sports hernia. And now his status for the postseason is in doubt.
