Juulsen not playing next game, will see a migraine specialist again - per Jo Jo don’t expect anything serious.

Editorial comment: if it’s no big deal, why is Juulsen visiting yet another specialist?

That 2015 draft is starting to look like the best draft year since 2003, and looks like Habs once again missed out....

Look at Bawstun's first rounds picks and imagine if they didn't have a scouting staff of simpletons. They took three big reaches and passed up on some veeeeery good players. They'd be a dynasty if they didn't screw that draft up.

We need some of these guys to be NHL ready. If only we could watch them play a losing season and get a top pick. They’ll never allow it in Montreal. Such a shame.

Need more.

Also very disappointed in Price. I know he’s human but man has he been inconsistent.

Price went through the exact same issue almost 1-year ago, then was the main reason the Habs stayed in the hunt - recall the end to end rush by Pionk at MSG...

Oh I'm aware but the one thing I have to agree on that the cap hounds harp about is the $10.5M is supposed to buy you consistency. We all know Price has the talent and yes he's getting older but the great ones all played into their late 30s. He needs to bring it every night.

Price has a history of leg injuries, albeit he's been pretty clean in terms of health the last few years. I'm puzzled as to why we aren't playing Kinkaid. We give Kinkaid close to $2M, but we don't play him? If we're just going to have a backup that's not going to play, keep Lindgren around at league minimum and throw Price out there. If they just now figured that Kinkaid isn't that good, what in the **** was the scouting staff doing? He's been in the NHL for a long time now, he's not some unknown Euro free agent making his first steps on North American soil.

The Price contract was in no way, shape or form a good idea. He & Weber are going to keep us in mediocrity for a little under a decade. This isn't hindsight being 20/20, it's one of the easiest predictions I've ever made on these forums.

It was a deal that was going to be an albatross at some point and end badly . Hope Primeau can take over at some point

This was more a PR move than a sound hockey decision

You’re puzzled why Kinkaid isn’t being used more? He has a 4.30 GAA and a .877 save percentage. You can stop being puzzled.

Weber can be moved if they wanted to, maybe even Price. I would think Vancouver and Calgary would be interested in Price.

Seattle will be waiting front row for Price - given VGK entry no way Seattle ownership will ok a slow & steady building of the franchise, it’ll be playoffs or bust year 1 approach IMO.
