    Will tonight, be the night? A good night as any to see Yeppu put one in.

    He's creating a stir all his own, even without having scored a regular season goal just yet.

    There once was Beatlemania. Then Hulkamania. And now, Kotkamania!

    He's the talk of the city and the foundation upon which this team is finally building its centerline strength.

    The secret? Well, he's very talented, humble, personable ... and he smiles at a very high rate.

    [​IMG]


    And for the astute fan, his longstanding nicknames are following him here:




    Question is, how long before we start seeing this around the city ...

    [​IMG]


    Looking forward to see him wear this in the dressing room, at the end of a game, hopefully tonight's game:

    His mom is anxiously waiting. Here she is on left, with Armia's GF:

    Just looks like a numbers game, Julien wanting to add a player that brings something different to the lineup, according to this: Deslauriers in, Hudon out gives Canadiens' fourth line new dimension - Sportsnet.ca

    La Presse notes:

    Employé en moyenne 14 minutes par match la saison dernière, ce chiffre s'établit à 9 min 38 s par match jusqu'ici.
    Étrangement, malgré cette baisse, il a vu ses responsabilités augmenter lors des deux derniers matchs puisqu'on l'a intégré à l'avantage numérique. Mais il a néanmoins joué à peine une dizaine de minutes mercredi, contre les Blues de St. Louis.

    TRANSLATION; Playing 14 minutes per game last season, he's now playing at a 9m38s average per game to this point.
    Oddly, notwithstanding the above downward trend, his responsibilities increased in the last two games as he was used in the PP.
    However, he barely played 10 minutes against the Blues on Wednesday.

    We're going to lose but Kotka isn't going to look out of place, that's my prediction.

    Was there any word on Mete's injury? I'd rather have him back in the lineup tonight.

    CJ said Mete was banged up during presser, and RDS showed a sequence where his hand got hit by a puck and the trainer was asking Mete to open and close it on the bench.

    Okay so this was just magnificent.

    It was like watching Game of Thrones as I scrolled down to see what was coming next ( just a little hype here, but only a little ).

    Awesome job Runner, great.

    Kotka’s mom and Armia’s wife are besties..
    Great, now Kotka will never be rid of him, they are going to beat this thing to death.
    Kotka-Armia duo is here to stay no matter how awful it is for Kotka’s points total and career. Fantastic.

    Such a pleasant surprise to see the Sens not struggling. Chabot took the next step and he's a legit top 2 dman now.

    I don't know if guys like Lajoie, DeMelo, Tierney can keep on the same pace for 80 games thought.

    Nice to see Deslauriers making it back. He was solid on the 4th line last year.

    Is that the same feeling that told you, you were going to win the last ten 6/49s?

    Good to see Deslauriers back. He's bringing speed, hard forecheck and solid hits every game. He's bringing a physical element that the Habs lacked a bit while not slowing down the team.

    Deslaurier should absolutely thrive within our new system, he's pretty much built for an heavy forecheck game.

    I think he will be good, I would like to see a Frenchman line of:

    DesLauriers-Danault-Hudon

    Perfect 4th line.

    I want a win and would love to see Kotkaniemi get #1, but Ottawa is never a place I feel confident going into.
