    So, these Golden Knights...I think they're about to surpass my predicted win total for them.

    Know what's funny? If the habs tank and get Dahlin, we still won't have a no.1 center. Dahlin is easily the craziest defenseman prospect I've ever seen, but still: ffs, give us a goddamn no. 1 center.

    There's a couple good centers, but nothing that says ''sure fire no.1'' Veleno and McBain probably get taken first, Kupari and Kotkaniemi could end up being the best ones. I watched Kotkaniemi last month in Helsinki. He's really good.

    Seeing Matthews live is a treat -- the guy is probably one of the strongest players on the stick you will ever see. The way he can just strip a guy of the puck with the simplest of lifts is incredible. It's like he wields a composite stick made out of a neutrino star it's so heavy.


    Also, buying a Zaitsev jersey -- the dude is legitimately our number 1 defensemen by all reasonable analytics and gets no merch support from the home crowd. Double also, Rosen and Borgman are stellar finds. Triple also, Rielly is officially one of the most overrated defensemen in the league. Seriously, besides skates well, he can do fuck all. He can't defend worth shit and he's not even talented enough to play point on the PP. Yet, TML still claim they would've picked him first overall??? Luke Schenn 2.0 in terms of potential bust.

    An embarrassing loss to the leafs might bury the habs season before it gets started with the schedule we have. I can't imagine Bergevin would survive another terrible collapse.

    Set us free Auston.

    Svechnikov is pretty good at hockey. Dahlin's better though.

    Gorgeous goal by Matthews there, wow.

    He's a pleasure to watch no doubt. Didn't get to any games last year but already scooped up tickets for Philly on the 28th so I'm pretty stoked.

    Auston Fucking Matthews.

    Also, LOL @ putting Byron and Plek out there against Nylander and Auston in OT.

    Shot attempts were even, but the Scabs were blocking everything. I fucking hate that kind of hockey.

    Still, giving up 3 goals to the Habs is like giving up 7 vs a real offense. Shit was embarrassing. The entire Bozak line is a fucking blackhole on defense.
