Is Samsonov drawing the line in Montreal?

Sammy bumped to the 4th line

Okay, here we go. Having played hockey for years, and understanding where Carbo is coming from, I think I have something that he should definately try during his line juggling. Firstly, I agree with trying to put some fire under Sammy’s pants, he’s an extremely talented player and riling him up is what we need. In order to get what we want out of him I think we should give him a few games on the first line to bump his confidence back up after being sat for a bit. As far as Gui being put on the second line….it’s about time, this kid has major potential, and I think he’d be a great addition to the top 6 forwards. The power play lines are too standard. I think what we should do is juggle them a bit too. Here’s my opinion of some great lines to try during Carbo’s attempts.

Can Huet Regain His Magic?

Noises of how he was to be a one year wonder were loudly heard again this preseason. Pierre Maguire of TSN proclaimed that every team in the league had the key to beating Cristobal Huet – shooting high.

So far this season, Huet has been handily outplayed by Swiss netminder and supposed backup David Aebischer. A flubbed early goal allowed on the second shot of the game against Buffalo cost the team dearly. So is Cristobal the next Patrick Roy or the next Steve Penney?
