As pressure mounts in Montreal there will inevitably be a line to cross. This line will likely mean the difference between a substantial move or another band aid move.
Mike Blunden has been recalled and while he won’t be the turning point of the season a guy like him could bring a whole lot of hustle and a whole lot of hits. Both of which I wouldn’t mind seeing right about now. I don’t think this can hurt the lineup any more then they’ve been suffering.
Petteri Nokelainen was acquired to add some depth in the center position. I would have preferred Betts… if he would have been healthy of course.
Let’s hope Petteri brings something. So far he’s won 18 face offs and lost 13. Not a huge stat there.
We need somethin’ folks.
Trade rumors… well, if you listen to call ins, you’ll likely hear rabid fans suggesting every possible scenario. Hey, we’re Habs fans after all right? Passion?? You got it.
Reports about Kostitsyn being on the block. Those rumors certainly aren’t new. We’ll see what happens.
My personal thoughts are that if the ship doesn’t change course, Mr Martin will be sailing somewhere else. And a player or 2 could sail the seas as well.
Tonight…. Habs vs Panthers. What will happen??
