I'll admit, every year I think "this is the playoffs where Fleury proves he's a top goalie", and yet every year...

If he played for any team other than Winnipeg, I'd say he'd be a guaranteed compliance buyout this summer.

At which point he'd either go over to Europe or be promptly signed to a multi-year deal by the Flyers.

If there's one thing I've noticed in my time on other message boards, it's that Jets fans massively overvalue what they have while undervaluing almost any potential replacement. Anyone who believes Pavelec is better than Reimer has no idea what they're talking about, and, while Montoya is a good backup goalie, that's really all that he is.

Anybody who believes Pavelec is even an average starting goalie needs their head examined.

Then you're in luck because the Leafs have a 30 goal scorer for $4.25 mil a year.

4 more years of that too. It's obviously risky, but JVR is a pretty good example of why not opting for a bridge contract can work out great for a team. Thanks Philly.

I kinda wish we had a 20 -25 goal player for only 4 mil a year.

Blake was no star but his contract wasn't an anchor either. His salary dropped to $3mil in the last 2 years of his deal so that worked in the teams favour too. Honestly Anaheim was probably pretty happy they were able to find a taker for Giguere's contract. He had a $6mil cap hit at a time where it was clear he wasn't a NHL starting goalie anymore. And his salary went up to $7mil in his final year too.

How many millions in bribe money did he offer the arresting officer again?  :o

I'm pretty sure it was a billion.

Maybe the refs let the crowd get in their heads? The fans seem to boo every call or non-call that doesn't go the Habs' way.

The ref who made the call was from Quebec too. I'm sure the NHL is convinced none of their referees would ever play favourites, but they have a fairly large pool of refs to pick from right now. Why even open yourself up to possible criticism by assigning him this game?

Could somebody tell Montreal's GM that he didn't just win the Cup?

Stamkos after tonight?

Pretty sure he thinks his name is George right now, so I doubt it.

Also, I heard Briere in an interview today say that everyone thought Tampa would win - without going back to the start of this thread, I thought there were more people picking Montreal to win.

Everybody wants to think that they're the underdog. Without Bishop Montreal was the clear favourite.

I'm going to enjoy when Montreal runs into an actual NHL goalie.

I'll be torn. They'll face Boston assuming they win their series, and I really want to see somebody beat Boston. It definitely won't be Montreal though.

Man, Lindback's awful.

These baseball "brawls" are embarrassing.  They always remind me of the kinds in high school/elementary school who always tried to start fights that they never intended on getting into.  They all bounce around and pretend to be tough, and 99% of the time it is over stupid little things.

Hah, I just posted something similar.

I never got these bench-clearing brawls. Like, 98% of the guys who rushed out didn't do a thing when they got there. Did the guys really have to leave the bullpen to get in there?
