    The key is Game 1 ... whether the Habs lose or not.     If the score is close, say 2-1 or 3-2 ... then that lets Carey get in their heads.

    I don't think Carey will be in their head, no matter how well he plays, if Tampa wins. They will only see the W, at least a good coach should frame it that way. And Cooper is a good coach. On the other hand, if they lose, with a big shot total, and an 0 for 5 on the PP ......

    I think you guys missed the most important key to winning for us. Our coach has to be willing to play the lineup listed above instead of defaulting to the vet line of Lehkonen-Staal-Perry. Also the proper deployment of his players will be key as well. If they pair a puck mover with a defensive D man on each pairing the system will work better. I don't want to see Staal, Frolik, Gustafsson or Merrill unless there are injuries or someone is majorly struggling. 

    I concur 100 percent.

    Kulak/Weber, Romanov/Chiarot, and Petry/Edmundsen on D. Perry sits but is first in at any sign of trouble.

    Staal/Merrill/Gust can warm the press box.

    Yeah pretty predictable from Toronto Sports Network. That why I subscribe to the ASN, the Alternate Sports Network. The following are predictions from their very learned team of hockey experts.

    Ralph Kramden - Habs in 6

    Thomas Magnum - Habs in 5

    Georges St. Pierre - Les Glorieux en 7

    Gally's Mom - Habs in 5, and Brendan, please don't get hurt

    Monica from Friends - Habs in 7

    Harry Potter - Habs in 9 and 3/4

    Stormy Daniels - No number of games, but she did say the Habs would blow them out of the water

    Youppi - Habs in 4

    Kamala Harris - Habs in 6

    Daenerys Targaryen - Habs in 6

    Mr. Spock - Habs in 5

    Meghan Markle - Habs in 5

    And finally, The Pope - Peace in our time and Habs in 4

    Assuming no Drouin:

    Tatar-Danault-Gallagher (shut down their top line, our proven top line)
    Toffoli-Suzuki-Caufield (hey we can score too)
    Armia-Kotkaniemi-Anderson (physical with scoring capabilities)
    Lehkonen-Evans-Byron (good line as of late)

    Perry coming in as first call for an injury

    Leafs in 6

    I like this line up. Play Kulak with Weber, Romanov with Chiarot, and Petry/Edmundsen as pairing # 1. We win in 6, provided Carey and/or Jake are good.

  5. Thanks Gentlemen. With that being the case, and with what I think are more than adequate replacements for both of them, perhaps our management can entice the Kraken into drafting one of them (and trade for the other ?).

  6. Couple of questions.

    1. If we leave Weber unprotected, and the Kraken take him, does the Cap hit that currently rests with the Preds regarding Weber retiring early, move to us, or does it stay with them. Or does it go to Seattle.

    2. Is there a similar situation with Price, should he waive his no trade clause, and goes to Seattle. Are we on the hook for his 10 mil AAV if say he retires 3 years early

    - Drouin has to stay on LTIR for 10 games and 24 days, so he's gone for the season essentially. I'm not sure how the rule applies once you get to the playoffs.

    - The Habs are out of regular recalls, so the only players allowed to be here from the AHL are the ones on emergency recall. Right now, that would be Primeay, Evans, Caufield, and Frolik. Every time a player returns from injury, the team has to send down the corresponding player who's filling that roster spot. You can only have emergency recalls if you have less than 12 forwards or less than 6 D or less than 2 goalies. And all the emergency recalls have to fit under the cap, although that's no longer an issue with both Gallagher and Drouin on LTIR, since their cap hits don't count while on injured reserve.

    - So if Price returns, Primeau has to go down.

    - If Tatar or Byron returns, one of Frolik, Caufield, or Evans has to go down. Presumably Frolik is the first one to go. If the second one returns, then a 2nd forward (Evans or Caufield) has to go down. If Gallagher were to be able to return, then the 3rd would have to go.

    - Come playoffs, there is no longer a limit on recalls/roster spots, so the Habs could put Staal in the press box freely and use any of Caufield, Evans, Frolik, Poehling, Ylonen or whoever else as they please.

    Thank you Mr. BigTed3. I, like you, would assume Tatar's return would send Frolik to the pressbox. Will be interesting to see what happens if Byron returns. Suggest that his UBI or LBI needs to keep lingering until season is complete, as don't see how we can sit Evans or Caufield right now.

  8. Can someone explain our cap situation. Does Drouin need to stay on LTIR until season end for Caufield and Evans to sray on roster. What happens when Tatar returns, Frolic to Taxi Squad with no return rights ? Same with Byron return ? I have tried to follow as best I can however, just too confusing, although I probably know more than Habs Management as I read about the mess we're in.
