    Hey habs, you did me a solid last time with that winning ambiance. This time around, a real boring slog fest would be advantageous to me. thaaaaanks <3

    This is definitely not a game to be taken lightly.

    Nathan Beaulieu a healthy scratch tonight...

    I said it at the time, but getting a 3rd for that guy was a minor miracle

    There's no denying he was abject trash last year but he's been one of our better defenseman this season. He was injured blocking a shot against San Jose and was out the two following games in which the we won convincingly. Housley wants to keep that winning group intact but Nate could easily find himself back in if we lose/any one of our D ****s the bed, particularly Casey Nelson.

    I've loved the way Julien has your group playing so far so here's to a good game between two supposed write-offs!

    Better than what?

    Nathan Beaulieu will be out of the NHL by this time next year.

    I'm not a fan of Beaulieu...never have been.

    If not for his skating, I don't think he's an NHL dman, he brings no redeeming qualities except skating (which he doesn't know how to exploit) and his ability to be a good face puncher.

    I was shocked at his willingness and ability to throw down, honestly. His play through seven games has also been night and day compared to last year. There's no saying if he'll keep it up, but I'm just wanted to chime in since he was mentioned.

    I was livid when we only got a 3rd for him... Safe to say I was wrong.

    they took Scott Walford....and then Cale Fleury 19 picks later.

    I can't see Walford being a game breaking NHL D....maybe not even an NHL D. We'll see!

    The third we got will never be in the NHL at all, so what's your point?

    Nate's been dummying guys for years lol...for not a big guy, he can really throw em.

    My comment wasn't about your team though, moreso about Nathan Beaulieu who I do not have fond memories of.

    That if Nathan Beaulieu was a Hab today...I don't even think they could get a 6th for him.

    Is that good enough of a point for you?

    I'm afraid Habs lose this one but Kotka gets his first in Boofalo!

    No, it makes no difference if it's a third or sixth if that pick never plays for the team, who cares

    Just a gut feeling from watching them lose in Buffalo over the years, but I'm wrong more often than not so we'll see.

    BUF's a lot like Ottawa in that they always seem to play us hard. Given their recent success out West, this is going to be a tough-fought game.
