Actually a 5 game homestand. Flames should be in a pissed off mood after losing twice to the Laughs

Yup, just checked it again. 

Habs are 5th in the NHL for minor penalties with 30 in 6 games
Habs are leading the NHL with 4 shorthanded goals, nobody has more than 2.
With 4.83 goals per game, Habs are leading the NHL right now
Danault has only 2 goals in his last 39 games
With last season, Suzuki has points in his last 8 games

And Danault turned down 5M?

I just shake my head.

This could be a tough game for us. and yes Dano turned down that money with a flat cap......not sure what the idea was there.

I feel like the issue was more of his role with the team. At the time he was looking at losing his 2 top 6 wingers to Suzuki and KK. Now he might just be waiting for the season to end and the ED to happen before resigning. If he wants more money he is likely pricing himself out of Montreal, we all know how MB feels about players wanting more than he feels is fair value (see Radulov and Markov).

Yeah I hear you about the wingers but at the end of the day it is the team that needs to come first right? what would Gally and Tater be able to do production wise with a more offensively gifted center? is Dano really the best fit? hard to say really. he helped the team when we had no other good centers but times change and he has to adapt to the new reality we are better now and he is not a #1 center on a good team. I hope he figures that out soon as he would be a deluxe #3 center on ours.

Absolutely Dano needs to figure out if he wants to be part of the future or if money is more important.

Nesterov. Is he one of the Russians that Bergevin purged off the team? Hard to believe,  if it is him.

we should beat Calgary if we stay out of the box ...the Flames are rolling along at 33.3% on the PP ( 6th ) and are 12th on the PK league-wide...last change will help

Same guy.  We got him from TB and he only played like 10 or 12 games. We didnt qualify him so he became UFA and no one offered him a contract (or at least not one he wanted to sign) so he went to the KHL -  he played there up until this year when Calgary offered him a contract.  Will be interesting to see how he does on his second return to the nhl. Not bad numbers for a KHL dman.

Interesting.  He always seemed like a serviceable defenseman.  Let's hope he flubs a few.
