Saturday night was a thrilling 4-3 win over division leading Buffalo with Ryder getting the game winner with about 2:30 left in the final period.http://www.canadiens.com/eng/news/re...ewsItemID=5585

Interesting piece on ESPN on Jacques Demers. How does a guy coach without knowing how to read or write? Really interesting stuff.

R.I.P Lorne "Gump" Worsley the Hall of Fame goaltender from the '60s and 70's for the Canadians. Died yesterday at the age of 77. One of the last to go without a mask. Remember seeing the Gumper as a kid when they played the Blues in the Stanley Cup finals. His coach told him he couldn't play goal with a beerbelly. Gumper said "hey, I'm a rye man." One of the best to ever mind the nets was how Ken Dryden recalled the Gumper. Record isn't all that great because he played his first nine seasons with a lousy Rangers team. Was traded by the Rangers to the Canadians. Gump said he saw the trade on TV and to this day no one with the Rangers ever told him he was traded. Four cup rings later I think he's glad he was. Having a rye tonight for "The Gumper" a true legend of a man.

Well that's 5 in a row on the wrong side, not much else to say. We are falling fast in the playoff push.

With the trade deadline only five days away, the Canadiens appear to be at the center of a flurry of trade possibilities, reports Montreal's La Presse.

The Habs have been linked to a number of ridiculous rumors of late, yet some forget to consider the team remains in the middle of a very heated playoff race.

While speculation has gone from Sheldon Souray being traded to NHL every team in California to the Canadiens dealing Mike Komisarek to his native Long Island, the latest has GM Bob Gainey talking trade with the Minnesota Wild – but it appears to have some ground.


The Canadiens top scout and Assistant GM have been scouting the Wild and their AHL affiliate in Houston lately, while the Minnesota's director of pro scouting has taken in the latest Habs' games.

There appears to be some obvious discussion between the two clubs, however the name popping up in Montreal-based rumors is that of Wild prospect Benoit Pouliot.

Citing a source, La Presse claims that Pouliot's name has not been mentioned in trade talks between these two teams and it would cost the Habs a hefty price if they were to acquire him

The boys hold on to a 5-4 lead and beat the Maple Leafs last night in Montreal, a trip to New York tonight for a game vs the Rangers.

Default Gainey's Message: Come Together

(MONTREAL, QC) -- Well, it does seem as though Canadiens general manager Bob Gainey watched the parade go by yet another year.

This reporter is trying to remember the last time a potential superstar – not counting Alex Kovalev – was on his way to Montreal the day the trade market was being put to rest.

Unfortunately, no one comes to mind.

What was the motivating factor for Gainey's inertia this past week? He feels his team, a good mix of veterans and youngsters, has the potential to reach the playoffs... or at least getting there.


In the end, all will have acquired more experience under pressure.

Besides, the same Canadiens' team was a top-five performer before December. They are now lingering between the ninth and seventh spot, something goner Craig Rivet grew weary of.

"It'll be nice to go (to San Jose) and be assured a playoff spot," he said last Sunday, after hearing he was traded. "In Montreal, it was always about making position number eight."

The current playoff race is by far one of most delicate ones in recent years. For once, the Eastern Conference standings are incredibly tight, which reminds teams that every victory is crucial. Do the math.

As of Thursday night, only eight points separated the fifth ranked Pittsburgh Penguins from the tenth ranked Toronto Maple Leafs. This is what GMs tend to consider when they circled February 27th on their office, refrigerator and bathroom calendars.

That's usually the time when you look at who you've got and subsequently write a "Costco List" of who you want.

From Gainey's chair, two (they were three before Rivet went West) important blueliners are impending unrestricted free agents and, for some reason, he's disturbingly confident he won't lose them to the bidding market, come July 1.

Does he know something we don't about Andrei Markov and Sheldon Souray, or is he simply that good of a poker player?

Granted, Gainey has won most of his bets. He may have lost prospects Marcel Hossa and Ron Hainsey last season, but those were inevitable because of the new CBA rules: Both had NHL contracts and couldn't be returned to the Hamilton (AHL) without being submitted to re-entry waivers in the event of a call-back. That's how Montreal lost Hainsey, while Hossa was traded because Gainey was impatient with his laziness and lack of consistency.

But how many GMs pulled off the incredible miracle of signing each and everyone of his free agents, last summer?

Two: New Jersey's Lou Lamoriello and Gainey, somewhat of the personification of mystery.

From a positive point of view, it seems as if Souray might sign back with the Habs next season, after all.

Following Tuesday's humiliating 4-0 loss to the Rangers (and Hossa's two goal outburst), Souray reiterated his joy of remaining in Montreal.

Sure, he heard all the rumours that sent him out West, with Anaheim being the front runner. However, in spite of all the personal reasons he could evoke for going to California, he insisted his priority was to help the Canadiens make the playoffs. Otherwise, it would have felt like "unfinished business," he said.

Besides, trading Souray just wouldn't make sense for the Habs, who consider themselves playoff contenders.

As for Markov, who applied for a Canadian citizenship in February, he recently told Le Journal de Montréal he wanted to re-sign in Montreal.

A loss Saturday vs a Boston club in the middle of a bad year has Habs fans in the chat rooms asking if we may see a coaching change before the end of the season. Still in the hunt for the playoffs with a 7th or 8th seed not sitting well in the city of hockey known as Montreal.

A win on the road Saturday night in STL keeps us with some hope, 2 points out with a soft schedule the rest of the month. Going to be interesting if we get in and have to face a team like Buffalo, if we go one & done if Carbo will still be behind the bench next year.

Down 2-0 vs the Islanders and then pulling out a 5-3 win had the Bell Cener going crazy. As of Wednesday we sit two back of the 7th and 8th spot in the East, we may get in this dance....stay tuned.

Jaroslav Halak has a firm grip on the No. 1 goaltender's job for now. Carbonneau said he'll go with the hot hand down the stretch despite all-star goaltender Cristobal Huet participating in his first full practice Friday. - Montreal Gazette

Halak is going to be the man in the playoff push, Abby has been less than average in his last several starts. I doubt he will be around next year, Huet will be the starter and Halak the backup.

4-3 win over east leading Buffalo keeps the Habs one point above Toronto for the 8th spot in the esat. It's coming down to the wire, stay tuned.
