All-Star / Super vedette

All-Star / Super vedette (4/6)



  1. I knew I could count on someone. There's probably worse options than Ronald McDonald. C'mon Benny, score and get yourself back in the top six so I can get out of this predicament. LOL
  2. That's a mess. As already mentioned in this thread, Pouliot had a little something to do with the St. Louis goal. It didn't look like the greatest effort to get the puck out. D-men wind the puck up the boards frequently so IMO the wingers need to be ready. It looked like a feeble effort. Does he deserve demotion - I don't know. (why do I find myself defending Martin today - someone slap me.)
  3. I agree. I never felt like Halpern was brought in just in case of injuries. to one of the top guns. That's Eller's role. Halpern is taking Moore's place at half the cap hit. Granted not many games have been played but Halpern is 4th in faceoffs won. And I'm hoping he can relieve Pleks somewhat in the penalty killing department. I like the signing. Tomorrow night Halpern and Moore meet each other. Should be interesting.
  4. I like this kid a lot. His PK time last year was amazing for a young player. I still have visions of him breaking up passes.
  5. Oh come on - somebody else post something in this thread so I don't make it three posts in a row. Please?
  6. Play all of this upcoming season like you did in the playoffs, Laps. Or at least a good part of the season play like that. Thanks....................... Orpik beating Laps against the net while the Habs scored a goal was just classic. I still have that image in my mind.
  7. Benny!!!! Benny!!!! Benny!!!!! (Just practicing my cheering and getting my vocal cords into shape)
  8. I love this guy's deceptive speed. (In an effort to talk about other players on the Habs roster besides the one not yet signed who shared a position with Halak last year.)
  9. If he can put more effort into the whole next year with results akin to the playoffs it would be a big bonus for this team.
  10. He's definitely more of a plus than a negative which cannot be said for some others. He's being thrown into situations where he normally wouldn't be.
  11. Nice pics CRB. I concede - I'll let up on the cranberry juice. Oh, and how many drool buckets are we allowed? Thanks for sharing the pics. Very, very nice of you to take the time.
  12. It's a tough call to make. Schneider came in and gave a burst of life to the powerplay last year so I guess that's what we were hoping for with MAB. And he did that momentarily but now it seems teams are keying on him. Same thing happened with Schneider. Teams started to key on him. Our powerplay needs creativity but even with Markov last year it struggled. How can you be so good 4 on 4, very decent 5 on 5 and be lousy a man up? He moves the puck and has a great shot but when MAB skates backwards I close my eyes.
  13. Managing Bergeron during the away games will be the challenge. So far he's been at home - I'm anxious to see what happens this week against some very good teams.
