    Kadri penalty was bull! Andrei Markov was on his side when he got hit, and turned when hit the boards. I hate penalty calls like this. Such a wuss Markov just because he knew he was going to get rocked he turned to the boards and would rather get injured.

    I find it hilarious tonight that the two centers Van wanted in a Luongo trade from us scored for us and Luongo ended up in the net tonight after Schneider got torched for 5 goals.

    Hope Scrivens isn't going to be that clumsy every game. I was real impressed with Emmelin. Guy hits like a truck.

    Looking at the box score and it says Kadri only played 9 minutes. It seemed like he was on the ice more, but maybe not. And if that's really the case, he needs to be seeing a bit more icetime than that. But i think it's a mistake.
    "The way they play offense here is difficult for any quarterback," he said. "Every snap is an incredible decision. They're in a one-back offense, they can't run the ball against certain looks so they have to audible to some kind of a pass or a creative run to get away from trouble.
    "There's never a play in the game where Stafford can just turn around, hand the ball off and catch his breath. Every play he's researching the defense and they throw as much as anyone."

    It's not a mistake. He himself admitted he wasn't on there much but when he was he made his showing.
    His ice time will increase.

    The penalty call was stupid IMO. It was a fine hit, Markov played it off like his head hit the glass and in the replay it does but only slightly... he made a good hit. Shouldn't have been called.

    Other than that Kadri was solid. But he's done this before where he has good games and then he shows up and plays poor... so I need to see more from him.

    It's evident that the guys who played during the lockout had better games. i.e Kostka, Scrivens, Kadri, Komarov they all played better then most.

    The Habs looked brutal, the game itself was sort of a snoozer because both teams were sloppy but my god the Habs looked like crap.

    Kadri was fantastic last night. That's what we need out of him, Kadri to me is like an Ovechkin player. Hear me out when I say this, I'm not saying he's going to score 50 goals blah blah blah, but in terms of their styles of play, Kadri LOVES to throw his body around. The only problem is, A) he's not physically built as tough as OV.. but the bigger problem is B) if we tell Kadri to limit the way he plays, meaning stop taking penalties, stop throwing his body around, he will not be effective. He is a very high energy guy who can be an effective top 6 player with fantastic ability to make something special happen. I think ideally, Kadri would be a good 2nd line fit with Grabo and Kulemin, but that line would be really small.

    Kadri takes too many penalties and quite often dumb ones. I like his aggressiveness but it translates into too many penalties when it becomes recklessness.

    He played awesome last night outside the penalties.

    He shouldn't have been given a penalty on the Markov hit. You can go back a few pages and check my initial reaction and I still stand by it. Markov was facing Nazem when he was going full speed and then turned away from the hit last second. The classic ***** move on Markov's part, nothing reckless there from Nazem. How do you expect him to be going full speed and then suddenly stop last second when Markov turns into the boards? You can't. Simple.

    IMO, that penalty was the referees bailing themselves out due a few "questionable" ones and the bad reactions from the Habs bench, coaching staff and fans.

    I thought it was a mistake because you heard his name every time he was on the ice (in a good way). He had a nice impact for 9 minutes of icetime. Kind of sad that only Brown and Orr had less though. Still, I'm sure it will increase and I also agree that the hit was clean.
