It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.

Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."

Killorn took a slap, and another Bolt picked up the rebound but It was above the circle, so he passed it back to the D man in the neutral zone. You'd never see that off the PK or outside of the dying minutes with the lead. But if you've only got two fore checkers in the zone and the opponent is swarming, why lose the puck possession? Just try another entry.


I think Mtl's used that play , only when Max P and Plekanec are on the PK.


If the d is open , it's a smart play. The worry is a yahoo forward trying to do too much and passing to a guy not completely open

I've wondered in general for years why whipping the puck way back up ice doesn't make sense when killing a penalty, especially if the PP is regrouping or out of sorts.

An extreme variation would be slapping the puck all the way back to your own goaltender and trusting him to cut it off behind the net and then either getting it back up to the nearest D to clear it or even letting him clear it if he's good with the puck and has some space. Worst case he freezes it if he's under pressure and then you take your chances on the face-off. At least then you have a 50/50 shot at possession whereas the dump-in is a guaranteed possession for the other team.

I thought that during the last week of the season, esp. the last game against the Leafs which was like a practice, they were trying plays like that, including passes to Price from weird areas, made me nervous as hell watching it. I like the idea on the pk, basically stretching out the possession, but still, you need players who read the game well enough to know when to make the play.

I remember that, and the first time I thought it was an error (Beaulieu, maybe?) but then it happened again and I wasn't sure anymore. Definitely not in favour of putting the puck directly on your own goal, as happened there. I'm talking more or less using the boards the length of the ice.

An extreme option, like I said, but an option nonetheless. Not surprised that you wouldn't see it much but I'd expect to see it here and there, since wackier stuff is always coming into practice.
