  1. I'd love to see a line of Bournival-Eller-Sekac when Bournival comes back up. Would be an incredible forechecking line
  2. Heading to Montreal early tomorrow morning with a bunch of friends. Osheaga here we come!

  3. Heading to Montreal in about 3 and a half weeks! Cant wait

    1. kinot-1


      If you get lost,,,just tell someone you're a Habs tourist. :)

  4. Since White has moved on, I guess Ill need a new sig. Could someone make me a Galchenyuk sig?
  5. His name backwards is Cakes. Nickname?? haha
  6. Agreed. We definitely need a replacement. While guys like Vrbata, Hemsky, Moulson, etc are not an upgrade and will not be much cheaper, they may accept a shorter term. Vrbata on a 3 year deal would be nice. Decent size and has scored 30, but in a small market. Theres always the big market factor with guys like him. Between him, Stastny, Hemsky and Moulson if he's comfortable on the right side, we need that top line RW.
  7. Apparently Reway wants to play pro hockey next year. Is hoping to make Habs (unlikely) but is considering KHL or Czech League. Per Dan Kramer (Dan's Daily Dose) Twitter. I like the sounds of this. Pro hockey couldnt hurt his development.
  8. Scored his first goal last night on his brithday. Congrats.
  9. I think it is becomign more realistic that he stays. This chemistry and recent dominance with DD and Pacioretty could go a long way. I think it might come down to this possible playoff run. Also, with Minny acquiring Matt Moulson, if they decide they want to keep him they likely dont have room for Vanek.
  10. 4G 7A 11P +15 in 4GP as Gatineau sweeps Cape Breton. Not bad, hey?
  11. Traded to LA for Robert Czarnik. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=113849

  13. Love Arrested Development! The new season that recently came out on Netflix was good too. Cant wait for the movie! I'm going to go ahead and assume that Breaking Bad was already said. IMO, its literally the best show ever , definitely has some of the best writers in the business. The most recent episodes are even better as the series nears its conclusion. Only 2 episodes left after tonight!
  14. I agree with CRB, Eller, Galchenyuk and who ever is hot. DD, Bourque, Subban, |Gionta and Gallagher are likely alternating in that last spot for me.
  15. Anyone know where I can find updated NHL player/prospects scouting reports?

  17. I'll understand somewhat if Suter does win, but i do think Subban is the clear choice. As for all the big minutes that Suter plays... Who else does Minny really have? They relied on the solid play of a rookie with Suter (not taking anything away from Brodin's great play), but after that they have Tom Gilbert, and not much else. Mostly young players that have to develop. The biggest case for both of Minnesotas players that should win awards (Brodin and Suter) is the minutes they play. That solely relies on their coach. Who knows who else could have played those same minutes if given the chance. Lost of players can play big minutes, but its harder to play fewer mins but give quality play. Not saying that Brodin and Suter didnt have good seasons or are bad players, but TOI can be over rated.
  18. I hate hearing people talk about how 1-way d men shouldnt win the Norris when they are referring to Subban. I totally agree that the Norris Trophy shouldnt necessarily be the best offensive dman, but people dont understand how good PK really is defensively. He is better overall than Letang for sure.
  19. How do you think match ups will work for us? I think I would try to put Pleks out against their first line (Turris): We're gonna have to shut them down if we want to win. Our kid line against their kid line: I feel like our kids might have an advantage. With Eller pretty much dominating games lately, and Gallagher and Galchenyuk near the lead in rookie scoring i think we have the upper hand. 4th lines against eachother: Our smaller guys dont have to put up with their goons in Smith, Kassian and Neil. Let our tougher guys deal with them. Our first line (I guess its the 1st?) against their third. Edit: Maybe switch our 1st and third lines and play our kids against their third (still weak opposition) and DD line against their kid line to try to exploit them with our offensive players.
  20. Agreed. I expected him to be decent defensively but I didnt think his offensive game was going to be as good as it has been. Not necessarily putting points up, but making good plays to keep the puck in at the line, putting pucks to the net and making simple plays. Looking good.
  21. I wasn't sure whether to post this in here or in the Lounge, but I figured it didnt really matter. But anyway, me and 3 friends have decided to go to the Osheaga Music Festival this year. We already have our flights and hotel paid for so it is definitely happening. Basically, what im looking for here is absolutely any suggestions to make out trip as good as possible. We are leaving July 31 and returning home on August 6th, so obviously i wont be able to see a habs game, which sucks. Any help is appreciated, guys. Some things I'd like to know are -We are staying in Hotel Espresso, anyone know much about this hotel? Seems nice from what i have seen online. -Nice stores and places to go that are close to the Hotel -Sights, restaurants, bars, etc to go to while in Montreal. -What is the weather usually like in early August? -And has anyone ever actually gone to this festival and knows what i can expect? That would be a great help. Im open to any opinions and suggestions and just want to make this a great trip. There will be 4 of us, all 19 and 20, in montreal seeing loads of bands play, so I know it will be a good time. Thanks in advance
  22. Hey! What's wrong with Newfoundland, b'y!? Im pretty pleased with Newfoundlanders in the NHL. Sure we dont have many, but most of the players we do have in the NHL are pretty solid. Guys like Ryder, Clowe, Purcell, Greening, Cleary, etc have been go for the teams they've played for. Luke Adam is a solid prospect too.
  23. Diaz is out with a concussion tonight. Assuming Kaberle draws in. Edit: Just realized this has already been discussed haha Hopefully this means more minutes for Subban, and not Boullion.
