Must have been a tough decision for him..............spend 6 weeks living in a hotel to sit on the bench, or more probably in the stands, for a team whose fans don't want him anywhere near the ice versus spending that time with his wife and two young children at the lake. The stress he endured for those 5 or 6 seconds it would take to make that decision must have been terrible. :rolleyes:

 

 I don't have a problem with any player who decides not to play and risk getting covid and passing it on to his family ...I half think Cary Price might do it too ...if Domi isn't cleared to play there isn't much point to it  for the Habs except taking a chance on screwing their draft chances ...not that I think there's a point to it to begin with ..Isn't it interesting that Toronto gets picked as a hub city and all eastern teams are playing there in one of Canada's hot spots for covid ...this becomes an advantage for the team that is in the "center of the hockey universe "  ...fans or no fans

The Pittsburgh Penguins will be voluntarily sidelining nine players from their training camp roster due to potential secondary exposure to an individual who had contact with a person that has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.

Canadiens lines: Tatar-Danault-Gallagher

Drouin-Suzuki-Armia

Byron-Kotkaniemi-Lehkonen

Weise-Evans-Weal Hudon,

Poehling, Dauphin and Belzile appear to be extras.

Chiarot Weber

Mete Petry

Folin Juulsen

Olofsson Fleury.

Per Jared Book's article about Practice here: https://www.habseyesontheprize.com/latest-news/2020/7/13/21322076/montreal-canadiens-lines-at-training-camp-suzuki-replaces-domi-at-centre-covid-19-habs-habs-penguins

Seems to suggest that the positive cases we have are:  Xavier Ouellet, Josh Brook, and Brett Kulak 

Everyone else is on the ice, except for Domi who is not cleared to play and Romanov who is still in quarantine. Juulsen is playing LD right now because of the players who are out.

Forward lines look ok but defense, if this is how it stays, is going to be obliterated by the Pens.

Brook back in so presumably he wasnt one of the guys who had a positive test (unless it was from a while back & he's fully recovered).

Weber out at practice - which had people in a tizzy apparently - but then he practiced on his own with Richardson & it sound like he looks fine.  Some speculate he wanted to work on some specific things one on one and since he is one of the only "guaranteed" spots on the D roster it allowed the coaching staff to look at other players (folin took his spot) to see where / if they fit in.

Answer: Folin doesn't fit in. Unless you're goal is to aim for Lafreniere. Which it should be but which isn't what the coaching staff is going for. I'd rather see Juulsen, Fleury, Mete, or a bunch of others ahead of Folin.

Haha. Good point.  Although i think they still want to make it look like they are giving people a fair look.  Im sure Alzner would have gotten some practice time if he hadnt opted out.  I do think this is more about Weber wanting to work on something than the team wanting to (truly) evaluate anyone

He's looking for more speed in a smaller sized pair of skates. :)

Jeez.  Still feels like its April or something. Talk about a write-off year.

I just hope that TSN and SN will broadcast all the games, as there sure ain't nothing else on TV to watch.

you have to figure if they can, they will - they really need $$$ revenue - although im not sure how the rights work with centre ice and things like that

From "somewhere else": 

What we do know is that once the playoffs do start, it's the national broadcasts (NBC/Sportsnet/TVA Sports).

Despite the fact that the pens have 2 of the best centres in the game, I actually think up front we're not that terrible.  Mismatched, yes, but assuming someone can handle Malkin (im confident Danault will at least reduce Crosby's impact) we should actually be ok, depth wise.  

Its the back end that scares the bejezus out of me. Right side is fine but aside from Mete (who is really a 3rd pair guy anyway) yikes.  Our best options are young RHD at left it seems.   Sure hope we get "good Chiarot" not "bad Chiarot"

I stand corrected. :)

 

Probably an unnecessary correction by me - you would have figured it out by the crowd response ... errr, hang on now ...

Actually that brings up an interesting point. Ive seen some euro events where they have canned fan noise - but does it change based on home vs. away?  Will be interesting to see.
