After watching parts of that Habs game during the boring Leaf game I think there is some merit to all you Habs fans saying that you have the Bruins number. They only really looked themselves on their PP at times.

Rask channeled Raycroft last night, the Bruins had a key goal called back, and Price looks like dogshit. It’s pretty crazy that Habs fans are all excited about this game.

I know the Boons were playing a back to backer, but their top line was outplayed by Danault-Tatar-Gallagher last night.

The line was outshot 11-2, (5 on 5) and had their worst possession game of the season.
Shhhh, the Bruins are unstoppable don’t ya know.

Price had better numbers than Rask. Rask was an .839 while Price was an .840. That’s what you get for an extra 3 mil... the win.

“All excited “. lol. Just mocking the chickenshits that have been blowing the Bruins. You know who you are.

Fabbri is kind of like Antropov. Missed significant portions of 2 seasons at 20/21 due to knee injuries after looking good as a rookie. IMO thats a guy worth taking a flyer on.

Good trade for the Wings, Fabbri always had more potential then De la Rose, perfect fit for them.

Especially if you don't really care whether or not he produces anything right away. He just needs to play some hockey without pressure at this point, and Detroit's not doing anything other than trawling for ping pong balls this season anyway. Anybody with any upside in their system should be getting minutes at this point.

Watching the calgary-st louis game and quite honestly, St Louis winning the cup last year is the best thing to ever happen to hockey commentators.

Nevermind that the advanced statistics were calling them the best team in hockey as of about last January (when they were still way out of a playoff spot, and everyone was telling us how they had to blow it up), now we're being told they won because they "play the right way", "roll 4 lines", etc.

They gave a lifeline to brain dead hockey analysis.

So....mthe worst thing for anyone else
yes, it's maddening to listen to. It was a good team with bad goaltending that pulled a really good goaltender out of their ass. But you have to ignore simple ass narratives and look at the data to see that.

While Burke was always thought to be the replacement for CHerry, I do wonder if replacing him with another old, angry white guy with outdated ideas is the answer. Given how it ended, not sure he' s a wise choice.
I say that Punjabi guy is the favorite to take over given what happened.

You don't need to copy the coach's corner format. Just do something more modern and different. Simply copying it with another old guy isn't creative.
As soon as I heard him say "You People" I said on here he's done.

Ooooo that would infuriate the conservative base. I'd actually gain respect for Rogers if that happened (never thought I'd say that).

But my money's definitely on Burke.
