"Montreal is operating without a net" - Sports Illustrated

Yeah, yeah, we know we said we were done with these, but damn, an excuse to post Marisa Miller! HabsFan4 is supposed to be along today with his review of the pre-season, but we have heard he is stuck in New York City. We're not sure why, he just mentioned something about a shiv and Dubi from Blueshirt Bulletin. But you didn't hear that from us. Anyway, over the weekend, Sports Illustrated dove in with their Northeast preview, so let's review the preview.

What jumped out at us was their analysis of the goalies. Price "will be an elite goalie", but not necessairly this year. Alan Muir just dismisses Halak and Denis, and claims Price's "repeated meltdowns" cost us the Flyers series. He then concludes the title of this post. Oh, you're so clever Alan. A 25th Cup is "unlikely." Finally, some negativity we can get behind!

He does have many positive things to say about Little Tits, Bob, Max Pack, and others. But his numerous references to Tanguay-Lang-Little Tits as the "second line", wrong on so many levels, leaves us to wonder how much we should believe anything SI says anymore. Well, except for their choices of Swimsuit Issue cover models.

Didn't Denis get waived?

@PPP - yeah, but I think it was just a necessary waiver move to allow him to be assigned to Hamilton (number of games in the NHL and all that)

Denis has a two way contract, could be wrong but he shoudn't need to be waived.

Two-way contract only really tells him how much he's gonna be paid in the AHL or NHL. So he still needs to be waived to go to Hamilton.

Watching that Pens/Sens game yesterday was weird. Not just the way they played or the fact the crowd only showed up in the 3rd period, but they kept putting the camera on a depressed Gerber sitting there on the bench. Suggestive much? Have fun with that goalie tandem, Sens...
