After Cogliano lost his ironman record with a suspension
He's about as much use as Anne Franks drum set that lad
He will be getting paid a lot of money to eat popcorn for a long time.
LOL, is it true that Plekanec is sitting out solely because he wants to play his 1000th at home?? Does this not sound kind of selfish?
Extremely selfish and unprofessional.
I respect players who miss regular season games due to child birth or family illness but that is just a joke if true.
It would be completely out of character for him to say he won't play so that he can play at home for his 1000th game.
Alzner seems like such a nice guy, it's really too bad he's become a symbol of waste and mismanagement in Montreal.
Plekanec will be playing a 4th C and is planned that he misses few games during the season.
At this point, Plekanec is probably 5th on the C depth chart.
Alzner's contract is one of the worst in the NHL.
Plekanec wants to play but Kotkaniemi made the team as a Center and some centers will lose time because of it.
Mismanage ? Alzner is slow as ****. He's getting the Brendan Smith treatment.
Probably more of an organizational decision. Technically Peca was better than him in preseason and he's probably in his final season in NHL. He was never really going to play the entire year.
Alzner is terrible. Hes not even a reliable bottom pairing defenseman anymore. If his play last season and this preseason is an indication of where his game will be from now on, he shouldn't even be in the NHL.
He's that bad.
I find it incomprehensible that Alzner has fallen off this hard.
Well, at this point, he probably has the worst puck skills in the NHL.
Not that he ever had great puck skills at any point, but he was at least decently quick and smart.
Smarts are still there, but the footspeed went down the drain. So, he's left being a D that is decently smart and has good size, but doesn't have any other redeeming feature, with the worst puck skills in the NHL.
He was at worst a top 4 if not 2 in Washington. Not that long ago.
I remember when Alzner was good. What happened that he could be so bad he can't even make the Habs D?
The mismanagement was signing him to that contract, not the decision to scratch him.
Yes, Plekanec is moving down to 5th because of Kotkaniemi unexpected performance in camp.
I find it incomprehensible that Alzner once was a top pair defenseman.
He was on the top pair playing along Carlson for many years in Washington. He was never more then a 3rd pair level defenseman in MTL. Lost a major step.
Doesnt count playoffs where he was benched and MB ‘s genius idea was to get the guy lol . One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Dumpster diving special by BozoVin. Wish our pro scouts would watch some nhl hockey once in a while
Good call by the coaching staff. He didn't look like a competitor at all last season and during preseason.
Gets caught flat footed, out of position, no speed, no physical play at all, terrible transition, no vision.
He was not even a need when our GM (who shall remain nameless) acquired him.
Separate names with a comma.
