What To Pay P.K Subban?

from Jack Todd at the Montreal Gazette,

The Habs have already made it clear they won’t be talking contract with Subban until after the playoffs, so a powerful playoff run by team and player could alter the picture considerably.

Whatever happens for the balance of the season, this will be the most momentous contractual decision the club has ever made and is likely to remain so at least until Carey Price’s six-year, $39-million deal expires after the 2017-18 season.

So how much do they offer Subban and for how many years? First, as my mentor Pat Hickey said a week ago, the Canadiens have to try to sign Markov to a three-year deal. He is, after all, their No. 1 defenceman. Then they have to take a serious run at Thomas Vanek.

Up to the Olympic break, you would have said open the vault, give P.K. what it takes and move on. But unless you’re too busy cursing Therrien to actually watch the games, it’s hard to quibble with the way he’s using Subban.

Montreal Down By 3 Score The Next 7 To Beat Ottawa 7-4, But…

Some talk on P.K. Subban, who played :37 seconds in the 1st period and was -2.  For the game, Subban played 13:39 and 3:42 was on the PP.  He finished -3.

from Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out,

To my rheumy old eyes, P.K. hasn’t been himself since the Olympics. But I can’t see why a slightly sub-par P.K. should have less ToI than Francis Bouillon, Mike Weaver and Tinordi – not to mention the stiffs patrolling that porous Ottawa blueline.

In an interview on RDS, Pierre LeBrun said he’d spoken on Friday to P.K.’s agent. Don Meehan told LeBrun negotiations on a new contract for Subban will not get down to brass tacks until after the Canadiens have played their last game of the season.

Fearless prediction: There’s going to be some tough talk between Meehan and Canadiens’ general manager Marc Bergevin. And if another team comes in with an offer sheet for the restricted free agent, things could get really interesting.

P.K.’s contract is not the only dossier on the GM’s desk, which has more hot potatoes than a poutine stand.

Videos- Lucic On Emelin

Milan Lucic had some works for Alexei Emelin post-game regarding this hip-check.

via Mike Boone of Habs Inside/Out,

As has come to be the norm in the NHL, Emelin’s clean hit drew a retaliatory assault from Zdeno Chara. And late in the game, Lucic speared Emelin from behind – a cheap shot described as a “love tap” by the cretinous P.J. Stock, who is ruining L’Antichambre for me.

Of course, Emelin’s refusal to “answer the bell” will be highlighted this Saturday on Coach’s Corner – the more so because bashing a Russian will take Cherry’s increasingly enfeebled mind off the late-season collapse of his beloved Leafs.

Playing Into The Night

At twenty-five minutes past two this morning, a bushy-haired blonde veteran of hockey, Hector Kilrea, a sturdy, scarlet-clad form wearing the white emblem of Detroit Red Wings, went pounding tirelessly down the battle-scarred, deep-cut Forum ice, trying to pilot a puck that was bobbling crazily over the rough trail, almost out of control.

It looked like another of the endless unfinished plays – when suddenly, in shot the slim form of a player, who through this long, weary tide of battle that ebbed and flowed had been almost unnoticed. He swung his stick at the bobbling puck, the little black disc straightened away, shot over the foot of Lorne Chabot, bit deeply into the twine of the Montreal Maroon cage.

And so Modere Bruneteau, clerk in a Winnipeg grain office, leaped to fame as the player who ended the longest game on professional hockey record.

-Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette & Hockey Inside/Out.  Stubbs re-created the longest game in NHL history, which went into 6 overtime periods.

The game 'started' 78 years ago tonight.
