The only games I missed were cuz the lady friend was sick of watching hockey.
Anyway, I stick by what I said.. His game isint what it was and it just bothers me to no end when someone doesent hustle to take the puck off of someone who’s skating towards our net when you he’s capable of making a diffrence.]]>
i did watch every game in the playoffs though]]>
The Bruins would never trade Thorton to an Eastern conference team let alone the Habs, if Thorton does get dealt it will be to the LA Kings or Detroit Red Wings..I’m leaning towards the Kings.
Julien is the best coach Montreal has had since Alain Vigneault and Vigneault was a casualty because he was part of the Houle Era. Julien can look forward to a good career in Montreal as he has been rewarded by Bob Gainey and is now under leadership who won’t just make deals for small fast players or sign free agents because they are from la Belle Province.
Ten moves that the Canadiens need to make to get back to the playoffs would really be.
1) Stay the course
2) Stay the course
3) Stay the course
4) Stay the course
5) Resign Kovalev or someone like Kovalev
6) Stay the course
7) Stay the course
8) Play Huet for 25 games to give Theo a good rest
9) Stay the course
10) Deal for Sidney Crosby (hahaha)
I do agree that Jason Ward can handle a bigger role with the team..who knows Ward could develope into a Mike McPhee type player which the Canadiens haven’t had since well..Mike McPhee. I would have said Carboneau but there is no way he will ever be like Guy.
Things are really looking up in Montreal guys, we may only be a few pieces of a puzzle away from being a team like the Senators and Leafs (meaning we’ll challenge for the division every season) and the way to get there isn’t to argue that Koivu isn’t a good leader (as he is the BEST captain in Canada for God Sakes (it’s close between him and Sundin) he’s the best choice for the C in Montreal and should be given the honour of retiring as a member of the Habs I don’t want to see him traded simply for the reason Bob McKenzie will dig up the “Curse of the C” and point out that the Canadiens have traded what is now SEVEN of their previous SEVEN Captains.
I’m not so sure that the team votes for the Captain though all the time as it seems to me Pierre Turgeon wasn’t the best choice for a captain but whatever.
As for Brisebois being rewarded..the guy played 11 great hockey games this season..and even in those 11 games he showed signs of being lazy, though the guy who praised Rivet might have to remember that Rivet helped cause an OT game in Montrela against Boston when he shot the puck off the glass not down the ice towards the empty net..though I’m not going to argue that Rivet is not a leader I watched him play junior in Kingston and he showed signs of Leadership then.
I really hope Gainey doesn’t make any drastic changes we don’t need to see any more Rejean Houle moves like Zednik to the Florida Panthers for Huselius.]]>
