Good video. Though it looks like the Leaf fans were already being escorted out. Fuck that lady and her cowardly trashy pushes while he's trying to walk away though.

The leaf fan was probably being an asshole, but that dude escalated the situation so fast, guy didn't even know the fight had started and he's half way down to the lower bowl.

There are currently 3 teams in the Metro with more than 16 pts. In the Atlantic, there are 6. The two wildcards will most likely come out of our own division. Just gotta beat out some combination of; The Isle, Washington, Ottawa, NJ.

Not putting us above these guys, but fuck it I am. It's do-able.

The East is shit, just like in basketball as well. Only real locks IMO are Bruins, Lightning, Penguins and Habs. Everything else is up for grabs. The Rangers SHOULD get in with a healthy lineup though. The Red Wings started off hot but have been racking up a lot of OT/shootout losses lately which has kept them afloat.

Funny thing is despite this team's defensive issues they're still in the upper half of the conference (and league) in GA. Goaltending hasn't even been that great either, the team's save% is 12th in the league, so good but not amazing. Leafs are also top 10 in shots for per game, but still one of the worst for shots against. PK is top 10 and getting better (2nd in the league in SH goals). PP 14th.

All in all, pretty much what you'd expect from a low seed playoff team.

The 2nd for Perreault was used on Josi? :stare: I know Phoenix traded it but still. Anaheim also used our 2011 second on John Gibson lol

Yeah. Pretty sad actually, was only 24 at the time and on his way to becoming a pretty good dman. Older brother Kurt was also a good defenseman who had his career ended because of concussion problems as well.

How about we stop losing guys for nothing and using buyouts and get a few extra picks rather than limiting ourselves from Bernier or Holland deals.


I'm all about this. My guess is Lupul is moved next yr at the draft in a deal like this.

Is there any video evidence of the recent legends/alumni game? Apparently Sundin looked pretty good.

Poor media relations guy got his feelings hurt.

If this was the 80s he'd get alot more than "get away from me" from stalking him in the hallway.

That's just a saying, my apologies in advance if you have a little prick and I've somehow offended you.


I wouldn't want to talk to these pricks after the shellacking they took on Saturday.

Also, if Siegal thinks "outting" Kessel is going to do himself any favours then he's an idiot. The media demand respect but refuse to give it time and time again.

The parasites of the sports world.

[SIZE="5"]Habs considered taking Morgan Rielly at third overall in 2012[/size]

Just how highly regarded was Morgan Rielly in his draft year?

Many thought it was quite remarkable that Rielly went fifth overall to the Maple Leafs in 2012, if only because Rielly had been injured most of his draft-year. He played just 18 games for the Moose Jaw Warriors, having torn his anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.

But he almost went third to Montreal.

The book on him was already long and scouts knew his talent level. And drafting is less about what a player has done, and more about what a player can do at the next level.

In a frank exchange on Monday regarding the scout-GM relationship, Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin hinted to an audience at the PrimeTime Sports Management Conference , that if it would have been up to him, he would have drafted Rielly third overall that year. Or, if Ryan Murray had been available (he went second to Columbus), it would have been him.

"I put a lot of value on defencemen, long term," said Bergevin.

Oddly, it was up to him. The Canadiens drafted third and Bergevin was their GM, having been hired from the Chicago Blackhawks.

Being new to the job, he wasn't about to over-rule Montreal's top scouts. That wouldn't be any way to begin a relationship.

The Habs took forward Alex Galchenyuk.

"They're all going to have great careers," said Bergevin.

Brian Burke, the Calgary Flames president who was co-hosting the event, sat in on the panel with Bergevin.

He offered a similar take on the GM-scout relationship.

Burke was new to the GM's chair in Anaheim in 2005. The Ducks were picking second, and went with forward Bobby Ryan.

"I wanted to draft Jack Johnson," said Burke. "But I said (to the scouts) we'll take the guy you want because I was comfortable with all them.

"But I just love defencemen. If you have chance to take a forward or a defenceman, unless the gap is significant, you take a defenceman."

Burke drafted Ryan. Johnson went third to Carolina.

In both cases, the scouts have proven to be right. Galchenyuk is turing into a No. 1 centre, taking a bigger role faster with Montreal than Rielly is Toronto. That might be the nature of their positions. It's also hard to see Rielly supplanting P.K. Subban on the Montreal blue line.

Ryan, meanwhile is a proven scorer, one of the best in the league. Johnson is a respected defencemen, but hardly among the league's elite at the position.
Both Burke and Bergevin say the reliance on scouts is paramount in building a winner.

"The hockey world is so big now," said Bergevin. "Just look at the NHL. My job is to keep track of the NHL, and I find that challenging. There's 30 American league teams. There's the ECHL. There's college, there's junior, there's Europe.

"Realistically, how much can you see and how much faith can you put in yourself? Can you possibly see all that needs to be seen? Personally, it's impossible.

"You hire the right people that you trust and you let them do their job. You trust them. You have no other choice."

Funny, I remember really wanting Galchenyuk and was very sad when the Habs took him. Wouldn't want Rielly in a Habs jersey ever though.

I'm not sure how you calculate blind faith.
