The Habs seem to want to win. It’s why they’re still overplaying Price.

Trades are flying today. Today is d-man trade day. Deadline day is going to be a bust again.

Scandella has been atrocious as a Hab from the plays I've seen him make recently. Why did St. Louis want him?

I also don't really understand that trade. Maybe St. Louis wanted to have a little internal competition and shake things a bit as they dropped 10 of their last 12...?

That huge TV broadcast starting at 6am next Monday for the trade deadline will surely end up like a little wet fart.

Is Dillon worth that much? I'll admit I haven't been paying attention since he left here.

No, he's just a third pairing guy like he was here. Non-descript as it gets.

Habs' management are so damn stupid. Bergevin finally won the Subban-Weber deal, Weber is an injury-prone player and their best D-man, Canadiens' season is over, and they're gonna jeopardize Weber's future by playing him for what ?!?!

Having the Mountain Man in their line-up should draw more calls because of hespect.

LOL he had like 7 turnovers against the Stars when the Stars only had 6. Thank you Army for replacing JayBo with that.

Gibson's scouting locations for his upcoming epic, The Passion of the Melnyk, which is three solid hours of Sens fans beating the everliving *poo poo* out of a naked, bloodsoaked NHL owner.

The Sabres got pounded by Ottawa last night. The fans are freaking out. Botterill is probably fired this summer after only three seasons as GM.

Just watched the Leafs Overdrive show on TSN about Toronto's last game. That was a pure jewel, one of the broadcasters totally lost it:

"Bench these *fargin'* $11M guys !!"
"They suck so much in their own zone"
"Nobody in this team has some *fargin'* balls"
"What are these morons doing ?!?"
etc.

While the Kings continue their roster clean-up, rumors send Kreider to the Bruins. If this fails, Jumbo Joe will be joining the team that drafted him first overall (source: Renaud Lavoie, TVA-S).

The Blue Jackets currently have ten guys on IR. I did the math, and they have $33.74 million of cap hit on IR right now. For all of the players they have on the roster who aren't injured, the total cap hit is $43.7 million.

And they’re still holding down a playoff spot, with only three fewer points than the Stars.

But the Stars have had Dowling on IR. Pretty much the same thing.

For all the talent and skill truly great players have, it’s their puck luck I envy the most.
