He is hooked, gets a penalty shot, and scores on the penalty shot. 

No assist but he deserves one. 



5-0

That was a nice little move from him to open up the lane.

OOOH yeah life goes on, long after the thrill of Vinny is gone

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."

...as serious as a poutine shortage in Chicoutimi during a curling bonspiel...

Mete was on the ice for 0 goals against all tournament at even strength.

He was also often Canada's top or second top most played player.

I’m curious as to how he’ll end up. Great skater , really good passer but kind of frozen on the rush. He reminds me a bit of Petr Svoboda

I thought Timmins was their mvp. Played great and got better every game

Conor Timmins had a huge game too, he looked great on both ends, did not expect that out of him.

Just before the winner I was thinking how Mete is a new age d man where Timmins looked like an old style guy.

He may never score a huge amount, but I think he'll be a valuable top 4 dman.

His skating is sublime, and the way the NHL is going, that plus his strong hockey sense is going to make him a good player in the NHL.

He'll end up like Spurgeon.

I feel like Mete is currently better defensively than he is offensively. His game is so mature for his age. Indeed he can rush the puck up, but not a playmaker. Can walk the line on the PP, and his decision making is aces. His offense will likely come from doing the basics right. But his stick, speed and high IQ is serving him very well defensively. I think for that reason alone he'll play big minutes as a very reliable D.

The Habs best defence prospect is Josh Brook. Prediction now, he'll be a star at next year's WJC.

Mete - Brook will be a stud pairing.

Love his game right now, but he'll have to develop a more dangerous shot from the point.

Kind of like PK, his hockey IQ is best suited to his own side of centre. I see all kinds of instincts making plays under pressure, in tight areas, I don't see it hitting the opposing blueline. Artie's right though, he needs to work on his shot.

It's like we need to find weaknesses in everyone's game. I can count on one hand the D's that have it all. He might of been slightly overshadowed by Timmins yesterday - but I saw a monster out there. His ability to skate or head man the puck from his end was elite level. I don;t buy that your hockey IQ is skewed to offense or defense. You either can or can't read and react - which is hockey IQ. He's just not an attention whore - he's been schooled by Weber. :magic_negro:

The meta I'm going with is that this is his schtick and it's how he's decided to roll with it.

Regardless of whether it's true, that makes it all hilarious.

Oh yeah, I found that the puck would arrive before most guys would locate a target, and he appears fearless jumping into the play. I'm just curious as to how he evolves. I remember 18 year old Svoboda, every tool except size but I always thought he never quite put them together. He had a fine career but I had higher expectations when I saw the skinny 18 year old playing beside #19.

Burlington is Hamilton :colbert:

Brampton is a shit hole, but attached to the appendage that is Toronto. Just one mass of bodies from there to the other side.

His ability to skate or head man the puck from his end was elite level. I don;t buy that your hockey IQ is skewed to offense or defense. You either can or can't read and react - which is hockey IQ. He's just not an attention whore - he's been schooled by Weber. :magic_negro:



i wasn't looking for a weakness as much as an area I'd like to so improve to give him another weapon

I thought he headmanned the puck a la Big 3
Oh yeah, I found that the puck would arrive before most guys would locate a target, and he appears fearless jumping into the play. I'm just curious as to how he evolves. I remember 18 year old Svoboda, every tool except size but I always thought he never quite put them together. He had a fine career but I had higher expectations when I saw the skinny 18 year old playing beside #19.



the whores and Chelios did Svoboda in

Hope he someday plays on a team with a left shot willing to put his stick on the ice in traffic

Eric Engels
February 1, 2018, 2:08 PM
210
We’re but a few weeks from the trade deadline, which is as good a time as you can find during the season to look at an organization’s top prospects.

This month our focus is on the five best in the Montreal Canadiens’ system, plus a nod of optimism to one NCAA player who is having a great season after being picked late in the 2017 NHL Draft.

Ryan Poehling, 19, St. Cloud State Huskies, Centre
Drafted: Round 1, 25th overall, 2017
Season to date: 20 GP | 7 G | 12 A | 19 P | +5

It’s hard not to be optimistic about a 6-foot-2 centre who plays the game well at both ends of the rink.

Since returning from a solid performance in a checking role with Team USA at the 2018 World Junior Championship, Poehling has scored two goals and an assist in six games. That brings his season total to 19 points in 20 games, which is strong output for a player counted on as much for his defence as he is for his offence.

Charlie Lindgren, 24, Laval Rocket, Goaltender
Undrafted. Signed as a UFA in 2015
Season to date: 7-12-1 | .896 SP | 3.04 GAA

On a Rocket team that has loaned many players to the Canadiens and lost a few more to injury, the number that matters most pertaining to Lindgren is games played.

The Minnesotan has made 26 appearances with Laval this season, on top of the eight he made with the Canadiens. The hope is that he plays a fair amount more down the stretch because the path has finally been cleared for him to become Carey Price’s full-time backup with Al Montoya traded to the Edmonton Oilers and Antti Niemi on an expiring contract.

Lindgren has shown great potential for what he can do at the NHL level, sporting a .929 save percentage and a 2.21 goals-against average in 11 appearances with Montreal.

Nikita Scherbak, 22, Laval Rocket, Right Wing
Drafted: Round 1, 26th overall, 2014
Season to date: 24 GP | 7 G | 23 A | 30 P | -2

Since returning from knee surgery, which kept Scherbak out of action from the beginning of November through the second week of December, the kid has recorded 22 points in 18 games.

He’s gaining valuable experience, and the hope is that he’s becoming a more complete player. His minus-2 rating on a Rocket team that ranks 27th overall and has a minus-27 goal differential indicates he’s not faring too poorly at the defensive end.


Noah Juulsen, 20, Laval Rocket, Defence
Drafted: Round 1, 26th overall, 2015
Season to date: 25 GP | 1 G | 1 A | 2 P | -5

Reports are all positive on Juulsen, who missed the first 21 games of the season with a broken foot.

You don’t need to look at his numbers to know he’s not an offensive juggernaut, but he’s a good skater who moves the puck and defends well, and he’s on a trajectory to be a steady No. 5 defenceman at the NHL level.

There’s potential for Juulsen to get there before the end of this season—especially if the Canadiens would like to get a closer look at where he’s at in his development. We suspect that will happen.

Jake Evans, 21, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Centre/Right Wing
Drafted: Round 7, 207th overall, 2014
Season to date: 26 GP | 9 G | 22 A | 31 P | +14

Evans’ tour with the Canadian National Men’s team fell just short of a stop in Pyeongchang for the 2018 Winter Olympics, but it’s been a strong season for him—both internationally and at Notre Dame.

Evans leads the Fighting Irish in scoring and is tied for 13th in points in the NCAA.

Those are good reasons for the Canadiens to get working on signing him to a contract before he ends his time in college and becomes an unsigned free agent.

REASON FOR OPTIMISM
Cayden Primeau, 18, Northeastern University Huskies, Goaltender
Drafted: Round 7, 199th overall, 2017
Season to date: 11-5-4 | .920 SP | 2.06 GAA

The NCAA’s rookie of the month in December had a great showing in January, too, going 4-2-2 and posting a .921 save percentage and 2.00 goals-against average.

It’s fair to say Primeau has officially become the starter for Northeastern. That’s no small feat for a freshman.
