A poster said Romanov broke curfew. Another poster said Romanov was caught driving drunk.
I think right now it's more a "don't change something that works" phenomena. They are on a 5 wins streak
Well what else could it be honestly? I don't see any other explanations. It is not for hockey reason he is not in the lineup. Not when we are playing Gustafsson 3 minutes a night 5 on 5.
You forgot Tinordi, Komisarek. I know I left Fischer out cause he hasn't played a single NHL game
Mete, Brook, Subban, Fleury, Romanov aren't first rounders.
Also some are thinking that Montreal could play Ouellet before Romanov.
I am speculating big time on that one but i am wondering how the english courses are progressing.
I could be wrong but the english barrier with a russian player would not be the first time. I remember too well Markov 20 years ago.
Dominique Ducharme : « Normalement, Carey Price va jouer les deux matchs » (Canadiens)
Dom saying we have depth at every position, and we'll see if we want to use it for the 2nd game in 2 nights; it depends on how the first game of the back to back goes.
So basically, we may see Romanov.
He’s in tonight from tvasport
I’m ain’t scared one bit.
I think Romanov will be solid with speed and physicality
He just needs to keep the game simple and hit, play with emotion. If he does that I think he won’t get scratch again. Physically a force
He will be an interesting option going forward
was glad to see it, was really hoping they didn't turn to Ouellet, he is not good. You want a guy like Romanov, who is clearly in the future plans to get a taste of the NHL playoffs but especially after sitting so much as that has to mess with his confidence given how he struggled so much at the end there.
Can't wait to see how much he can progress in the coming years, need to find him a steady partner though.
Solid game all things considered. He didn't play a lot and made no mistakes.
I don't know the upside but I think #4 is his floor which is great.
I waited all night to see the supposed implosion that the Habs brass were deeming inevitable by not playing him.
He was perfectly fine and made some nice, calm plays.
Didn't play much but was good.. quick exits when he had the puck, didn't try to play hero puck and just iced it with no play.. had a good scoring chance, was competitive and threw a couple solid hits.
Definitely showed he can play another play-off game.
haha. Romanov destroyed a guy at some point. He took like 5 strides to get to the guy. It was not a "Habs playoff style hit". You could tell it was Romy because noone else would have tried it. If it had failed, it would have been bad though.
I hope he keeps playing, but I still think he needs to control his physicality a bit more.
That soviet anthem is so good. Say what you want about russians, they had one hell of an artistic elite before they killed them all during the soviet era.
PS: the actual russian anthem is even better. These guys know glorious.
Did I read it right? Not a single shot on net against when he was on the ice? He better stay in.
Honestly I thought Romanov played ok, but he also made a few bad plays and looked a bit lost a few times. He was also having a harder time boxing out guys. I think he will be a good player. Playing D in the playoffs requires lots of strength and really good communication skills. I'm sure he will get better.
He was extremely sheltered... and the Jets had like 10 shots all game!!
I'm just happy he's finally taking in some playoff experience. Those minutes are super valuable for his development, even if there arent a ton of them in the end.
A least he'll get his name on the cup
The difference was one goal. No shots means no goals. That’s a huge contribution for someone that’s deemed not good enough to play when everyone is healthy, 8th on the depth chart.
Gotta love his enthusiasm (Perry's and Gus's as well)! He cracks me up!
Staal be like: "That dude is intense!"
So Gus or Romanov? 'Cause Kulak ain't going anywhere.
It's a tough one. But I'd go Romanov game 1. I'd rather the better defensive dman.
But Petry isn't assured to go game 1. So we'll see when we get there.
