...they would be unstoppable!!!

(They might be now)

Backes
Nash
Marchaud
Chara
Rask
Bergeron
Krejci

If you can block out the hatred of the Bruins...and focus on player type and skillset....THAT is the type of roster the Canadiens need!

Grit. Character. Talent.

(But instead we focus on mother tongue and french names)

They are a faster team than when they won a Cup.

Marchand still an idiot though.

The Bruins have been my prediction for the Stanley Cup since about January.

...hey Nil...not a bad call...although Tampa is certainly the other Eastern power that looks solid (And-o detests Pittsburgh).

The West is always a complete scramble...could be many teams!

God our Habs are not even close...not even average...wow!

It's officially happened where the francophone requirement and preference will essentially lock the habs in perpetual mediocrity or worse.

This will probably happen for another 10-15 years before the francophone community gets tired of it and is accepting of the fact that if you filter the talent (both management and players)...you get what you deserve.

I would be like me opening a business and saying I only want applicants with blue eyes...I've already placed my business in peril.

I think Boston will win the East.  Will their defense and goaltending hold up in the finals?  TBD.  But they have all the pieces, for sure.

Hey Desi: It would be nice to see your nephew in nets for a few games!

Well, as much as I would love to see Casey get some ice time in a playoff game, Nil -- it would mean that a) Murray got hurt, or b) the Pens are getting blown out of a game and have yanked Murray out of mercy.  Neither of those scenarios are something I really want to see!  But I know he's enjoying being part of a Stanley Cup playoff team.  And if he does get called on for whatever reason, I know he'll play well and benefit hugely from the experience -- just as Murray did when he first got a taste of playoff hockey.
