  1. I heard from someone quasi in the know that Hall will make his way to The Flames.
  2. Wrong my friend, merrill and kulak do the little things a bit better and more importantly, consistently. As does Oullet. Oullet was superior in the AHL this year. Fantastic actually. All of these guys play systemic hockey and are trusted to be reliable in all the little things. Like Angles. How they pin players to force the direction of the next play (hugely important of course) etc. Lotsa stuff. Rom is good. He’s exhuberant. But him watching games, doing Film study and more Practice, Is exactly what he needs. He should not have been top 6 this year. But He got by on natural talent and growth projections by the team. Plus lower level snd regular season coasting type hockey. Simply put, His progress was not enough during the regular season. Despite fans here calling fir him to be a top pair or top four. Lol. Lol. Lol. I remember discussing with many that he would not make the team. Maybe as a 7th D. He made it. I was wrong. But really, it was about building an asset. But now he is being told and taught and shown how much the little things matter and build to team hockey and players knowing where the play will be cut off and forced. He played well enough last game. He did his job. Growth. But the off-season will be huge for him. Or he will be on the outside looking in. Cuz there’s some Dmen in the AHL that play a more reliable team game right now - not just Oullet. main point - folks need to quit pining for Romonav in the playoffs. He can in a jam. As he did. But. Meh… things are as they should be.

  4. Well Merrill is better than most here think. And yes quite capable on the penalty kill. And you obviously did not watch AHLTV hockey this year. Oullet was tge best defenceman on the team and better than he was during his NHL year. Just reality. I was surprised they went after Merril and Gustafson because he was looking so damn good. And I was not a big Oullet supporter to be clear. But give credit where it’s do. He is actually a true NHL player on half the teams in the league. I’m not sure how many realize how good the core 10 d-men are collectively on the Habs. It’s the true reason for the current play of the team. The coaches have divided ice time and usage masterfully. that said, I’m shocked to see Gustafson playing in this series. It’s the first huge error by the coaching staff. There’s no way his addition is helpful. He’s here to help the power play. That’s it. And the game plan should understand that Vegas is so well coached and disciplined that they simply won’t commit penalties often and when they do the refs in the league look the other way, giving them the benefit of the doubt. Gustafson should not be playing. Merril and Kulak should be a solid third pair in this series. Simple.
  5. What’s your point? You guys are killing me. Crap happens. Welcome to a contagion. Welcome to a non perfect vaccine. If you want to bury your heads in the sand and live like we, just to protect every single living foul, but especially those 80 plus, go ahead. Perhaps the government needs to separate our stores and put all fats and sugars to one side and control consumption? Want that? Ration cigarettes? Booze? Lock up the mentally ill at first sign and out them on drugs in institutions until proven mentally healthy. Talk here, is like some if you think this virus is going away? Lol. It’s here to stay. Move on! Live. You are going to have to eventually, you just have not realized it. Such is life.
  6. Can you make another prediction? I am so curious about your ability to diagnose and compare talent! Thanks in advance.
  7. And private medicine based economy and government responsibilities. Public health snd government t ha e more to answer. USA is build to allow individuals to self regulate. Something to be said for tweaking our bloated Canadian health care system. Fine tuning needed.
  8. Absolutely. Great signing. Carey getting hurt yearly now. Needed Allen badly. Or the fade would have cost a playoff birth like past years where the team just tail spinned and fell away. You need average or better goaltending these days. Just gotta have it with all the skill these days. as for trades or playing games. No way. Bergeron has planned well to ha for the loss of several likely players. it’s all good. lose a player like everyone else. Keep vastly underrated and unheralded Danualt. Same exact role as now. Pay him the top offer. And some teams will offer very good money In FA. Likely the Kraken themselves. Re-up a couple of the young ones. this team is built right
  9. Lol. Lose price for nothing. Hilarious. Just to have a few million left over. Hsha. And that builds a defence? The defends does noT need rebuilding
  10. Losing ONE player folks. Like everyone. Not A big deal. No way is Price left Unprotected. I am learning BigTed can say some clever things. And some things that blow my mind drouin is in my opinion a super easy choice to Leave unprotected. He has not even contributed. Is a huge risk for any team with his “unknown/undisclosed PERSONAL issue. If he’s protected i will eat my shorts. Use our heads folks. Why would any team even dare take him when they could have someone else. Why would the Habs protect him knowing that. He’s likely going through a major mental challenge or illness or substance abuse treatment. Weber could be left unprotected. At least that suggestion. Is within the realm of earth. Sorry to be so blunt. But…not really. He has a huge contract. And he won’t be getting better with time. Great player. But he know longer scores. That’s a problem at his cost. Take the chance. Expose him.
  11. It’s not at all like that. Lol. I stole something once. I’m not a thief. My wife hit me once. She’s not an abuser. I mean, come on. Cray cray comment.
  12. Folks, forget about him. If he’s back it’s just a bonus. I can’t believe Tartar sits. He must be chomping at the bit. And pretty pissed.
  13. Price. Probably the easiest first two periods in forever. Three Real saves. but earned his big pay in the third.
  14. Wow they got a shot with three seconds. Price. Way out. Perfect position. Off the helmet. Perfect position
  15. Much better with a forecheck snd not neutral ice d
  16. Does anyone know this Scotia bank commercial is one of the worst ever. Bad everything. Bad acting. That dude holding hands with his wife looks like M Jackson kissing in his video. Just awkward as hell.
  17. Real looks by both teams off the hop.
