Short Hockey Notes

from Stan Fischler of The Fischler Report,

* It would do The Game a lot of good if goalie pads were further trimmed from side to side.

* My view is that Jim Rutherford and Mike Johnston have everything in place for their Penguins -- except for goaltending.

* Biggest challenge for Rutherford-Johnston is to convince Pittsburgh fans that the regular season has meaning.

Pierre LeBrun With Some Hockey Talk

Pierre LeBrun of ESPN did an online Q & A today...

Is the year that Detroit's playoff streak ends? I mean it's an unreal streak when you stop and consider it.

Pierre LeBrun  Possible, although again, they're in the East so....If they can stay healthy, and they've started with Datsyuk out a month, they should be able to slide in but if injuries pile up again, I don't think they can perform the miracle twice

Flyers: Playoff team or no? Obv being in the East helps, but a net negative offseason for the team. Thanks!

Pierre LeBrun  bubble team

Is this the year the Penguins take a dip Oct-Apr, but make gains Apr-Jun? Regular seasons stats have been done here, and are no longer important.

Pierre LeBrun  Honestly not sure what to make of the Penguins this year. Don't have a feel for them either way. Not sure where they are headed

Previewing The Montreal Canadiens

from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet,

Biggest storyline to watch: With Gionta and Gorges gone, this team has really been turned over to the next generation of Price, Subban and Pacioretty. Can they be the guys who lead Montreal back to elite status? It will be interesting to monitor how the top-nine forward group shakes out. Rene Bourque was a beast, at times, in the playoffs, but is there any chance he returns to 20-goal form? Parenteau will get a real chance to shine offensively, so we’ll see if he can put together a productive season. Sekac is a six-foot-two late-bloomer, and it seems reasonable to assume part of the reason he chose Montreal from a dozen or so suitors is because the Habs indicated there was a roster spot to be had. On the back end, Nathan Beaulieu and Jarred Tinordi both seem primed to make the full-time jump. Beaulieu brings speed and offensive awareness, while Tinordi moves well for a guy who stands six-foot-six. If both hit their stride, it will be a major boon to the blue line.

2014-15 prediction: Montreal will be good enough to make the playoffs but is in for a shorter spring than it experienced last season.
