Lol
H/A split is 2-5; their record is 1-5-1.  If they won all their home games and lost all their away games they'd be 2-5, and they are in fact 1-5-1.  Pretty close.

Habs have played 2 home games and 5 away games.  They are 1-5-1.  Nearly .500 if you look at it that way.

Even at age, what 39? last year, Markov was 5th in the league in primary assists among defensemen. That's pretty impressive.
And people say he has slowed down, and maybe he has, but come playoff time last year he was skating circles around Weber, who is not fast to begin with and was spent.

Re: Our forwards.

Paul Byron is fast, small, and not scared.  He is off to a good start, IMHO.

The rest should follow his lead.

Nice one C4C... a little balance is good.  But TH is right too; the - outweighs the + so far by a wide margin.

Re: Bergevin will soon be gone!!!

I would have given Markov $6M/yr for 2 years.  The guy is ageless, and was still our best defenseman last year, IMHO.

Re: Game 6 : Montreal vs San Jose : 10/17/17

I was in Ottawa last night and caught the Sens/Canucks game.  The good news is that neither of those two teams look any better than the Habs.  Karlsson's first game back, and he looked rusty.

Re: What Mete's "success" proves...

actually he has been the best dman....everyone is hung up on Weber but it appears he is slowing down,not getting his shot on net,can't pass the puck, out of position...to me he just does not look right I assume you're talking about Mete, not Benn.

Glad you brought up Benn.  Has any Habs D played a worse 5-game stretch than this guy so far this year?!  Man, he's been terrible.  Turnover machine.

Re: What Mete's "success" proves...

I would prefer they don't ruin Mete by having him in Montreal all year and being overwhelmed by the NHL speed & size & talent.  Better to spend a year dominating in Junior and coming back a year older, bulkier and more mature..
