Scott Cullen on Twitter, in response to reports that the Habs' last protected slot in the expansion draft will come down to Benn or Beaulieu: "This would be so Habs. Protect a 30-year-old third-pair defenceman based on a 19-game sample."
 
That sounds about right.
 
Le sigh.

Glass half-full:
 
That'd mean they are not protecting Emelin either way, though.

There needs to be serious questions asked of this team if Bergevin
leaves Beaulieu unprotected.

Give them Price and Pacioretty for Rinne, Forsberg and Jossi

Change Patches to Chucky in that trade, and you've got a deal!
 
And then I switch from 50+ years of Hab fandom to a Preds fan.
 
But boyhowdy, that meltdown was painful last night.
 
Nyssa, who is losing hope that we can see an all-new Cup
winner this year

Let's just go Price for Rinne. How's about today?

It must be awful frustrating for the really real Preds fans! It's frustrating enough as a bandwagon semi-fan. They must have owned about 80% of the first two games. But in the relatively brief times they weren't dominating, jeez, Pittsburgh transcended opportunism.
 
And then somewhere over the weekend the refs found their whistles again? Or at least, partially? When two less-vicious teams are playing?

Have no fear Gerry - Bergy will sign a bevy of 4th liners to make up for
the loss of Radulov. Throw in a gaggle of bottom pairing defencemen (cuz
you can never have too many defencemen apparently) and the loss of
Radulov is easily managed.
