Pretending to care - Take Two
More quick observations from another game I'm pretending to care about: Ray Ferraro was right on when he spoke to us on the air about Brendan Gallagher. Ferraro all but referred to Gallagher as a can't miss prospect. It's a good sign that a player of his physical stature can make such an impression so quickly.

Montreal - Sep. 27, 2011 - More quick observations from another game I'm pretending to care about:

  • Ray Ferraro was right on when he spoke to us on the air about Brendan Gallagher. Ferraro all but referred to Gallagher as a "can't miss" prospect. It's a good sign that a player of his physical stature can make such an impression so quickly. It's a bad sign that he looks so much better than almost every other young forward.

  • Jarred Tinordi - another good sign - didn't look out of place. If he can be that steady with a dash of physicality every time he plays against the Boston Bruins, then he'll eventually be just fine.

  • Gabriel Dumont as a 4th line centerman right now? Sure, why not make a small group of forwards smaller? Is it simply not possible for the Canadiens to find a veteran centerman over six feet tall who can win face offs? (Dumont 2 - 9 in the circle vs Boston)

  • Josh Gorges is back (23:00; 6 blocked shots)

  • Chris Campoli? Might not be fair but I always thought that any team with Chris Campoli on it cannot be a legitimate contender. He's no Roman Hamrlik.

  • Brendan Shanahan is doing the right thing to try to set the tone for the regular season. But one simple question - if what James Wisniewski did to Cal Clutterbuck is worthy of an eight game suspension to start the season...why not just make it ten?

  • Is Sean Avery serious?

  • Gregory Campbell bowls over Carey Price with no reaction by the Canadiens. The night before in Halifax, somebody takes a poke at a loose puck in the feet of Bruins goaltender Anton Khubodin and they get swarmed by the Massachusetts State Police.

  • There is a lot to like about the Canadiens including speed, skill and determination. But they lack a mean streak. Like it or not they're going to have to find it somewhere. Otherwise Peter Budaj might actually spend some time as their number one goaltender.

  • Thursday October 5 cannot come soon enough.
