    Two important games, a sweep would be nice. Who do you start against the Isles?
    Give Niemi the harder opponent or save him for the Rangers?

    If you're not tanking: Price against the Islanders, Niemi against the Rangers.

    Price had a bad game last night IMO, so give him the redemption game tomorrow and have Niemi play on Tuesday?

    It will be interesting to see how the habs fare in their first back to back, considering the type of game they play. Will they have any gas?

    Islanders have been playing well and Griess has been a wall.

    Also, with a cramped schedule over the next week, we better see scherbak at some point.

    He might be, but it would be negligent to not give another look.

    This is they type of player/situation that I wait for on the waiver wire.

    I still don't think his preseason was so bad that it warranted him sitting out for all of October into November.

    Really have to bear down on both those teams if we want wins.

    The Islanders are not to be underestimated. Will be a tough game.

    Islanders are surprisingly good defensively this year. What a difference a good coach makes.

    At least we went throught one of the toughest part of the schedule considering quality of firepower.

    Washington, Pittsburgh, St-Louis, Calgary, Tampa and Toronto are all in the top 7 in the NHL for goals scored.
    Habs just played 7 of their 13 games against those teams.

    NYR is pretty bad so being better than them doesn't mean much ;)

    Next two weeks gonna be a good test.

    Next week gonna be a 5 games in 8 days sequence against teams we might not take seriously. It's always very dangerous. After that it will be the first trip in the west which is always a good barometer of what to expect for the rest of the year.

    Should beat NYR, but NYI are playing well and that one is 50/50 I'd say.

    So far Montreal's schedule hasn't been too bad even this back-to-back requires no travel.

    :laugh: It's a classic. One of these days I will see Montreal at MSG. I've been to New York several times and it's a fantastic city.

    I've never thought of watching a game at MSG. Great idea.

    Have any of our posters taken in a Habs game at MSG? What's it like?

    I agree but that Claude Julien gets a bee in his bonnet and hes a stubborn man.

    Tampa beating us sucks but we have the perfect opportunity here to bounce back and keep the loss streak to one. Both PP and PK need to show improvement. I wonder if we see Domi-Kotkaniemi-Drouin again? But they may like Domi at C too much to do that.
    Byron is making the trip so he could play. If he's back I want Shaw gone.

    How much longer is Benn-Petry going to be a thing? I'd put Ouellet with Petry before Benn until Weber returns.

    Ouellet-Petry
    Reilly-Juulsen
    Mete-Benn
    Alzner
