Yup, good to see the Habs playing better! although I heard some of Subban's team mates weren't overly enthused about him coming back to the team... Sens are on fire too. I'd like to see all the Canadian team make the playoffs...
I think here in Canada, especially Montreal/Toronto media, people tend to blow anything to do with Habs/Leafs out of proportion. P.K. was a little selfish last season and I think it may have rubbed some people the wrong way, but I think what's going on now is a bit of tough love. People say this is the last contract he will ever sign with the Canadiens, and to those I say do your homework. The guy eats/sleeps/breathes Canadiens, he could have EASILY walked away from contract talks with the Habs and signed else where *ahem TORONTO ahem* for BIG $$$. But no, the Habs are in his blood. He will play out this contract and will sign a long term big deal and become a Hab for life.
Now people are all bent out of shape because Therrian banned the "triple low-five" celebration...... one analyst actually said, "they are killing his spirit, this will eventually show up in his play." SERIOUSLY????? It's a dumb celebration at the end of the game, has no impact on the game whatsoever. Now I do agree that the banning of it was a little bit much, but who cares? PK doesn't seem to care, he is playing great and being himself out there.
Sorry for the Habs rant!
Sens are playing great, incredible turn around from a few years ago when they really surprised everyone and finished near the top in the East. Boston is rolling as well, they have been pretty consistent the past few years. Buffalo is just too inconsistent, and the Leafs.... Well the Leafs are the Leafs.
