I know, right? Who wears a Minnesota North Stars hat to a Leafs / Bruins game?

Cause it most definitely was a big fuck you to the whole be church and its gonna cost McLean you watch.
Don't light a fire under the other bench whatever you do.
Did you listen to MacLean's explanation for the timeout?
Did you see the way they lined up for the faceoff after the timeout?
The Canadiens had gotten really chippy, they'd gotten blown out of the rink on the scoreboard and were trying to send a message with their fists. MacLean already has a shortened bench because of the penalties assessed to both teams, he doesn't want his team engaging in anything stupid in the last minute. He calls a timeout and drills that home and then sets up with 3 men across the blueline and just 2 up for the faceoff.
It may have come across as a fuck you to the Habs, but I don't think that was its primary intent. Nobody but MacLean will ever know though.
I'm sorry what were the circumstances again? 6-1 dying minutes of a penalty filled debacle (236 minutes PiMs) and Maclown wants a time out with a powerplay to remind his boys from doing something stupid???
You're buying that? I doubt you'ld be be so understanding if it was you on the opposite bench.
The guy's a jackass and he's giving the Habs plenty of fuel. watch that be the turning point in the series.

They have been counting on Backes (29), Oshies (26), Perron (24) and Berglund (24) to step up and be those good first liners but it is looking like they are complimentary players rather than guys you build around though Berglund and Perron may yet develop some more but they need to develop in a hurry.
The Blues have Pietrangelo to build around but not much else. They need Tarasenko, Schwartz and Rattie to lead them moving forward but those guys are still a ways away from being consistent threats (heck Rattie isn't even pro yet!).
So I'm wondering what sort of re-tooling the Blues will be doing. RFAs Pietrangelo and Stewart will be looking for raises on there $3 mil a year deals. Berglund is up for renewal and will likely command more than the $2.25 mil he's making now. I wonder if they move him (big bodied center for the canucks?). On the back end they will have a decent core of Piet, Bouw, Shattemkirk, Polak and Jackman but that Bouwmeester contract will handcuff them a bit next season given the RFAs (Bouwmeester was also not too impressive in the playoffs). It may even cost them Shattenkirk.
Running rough numbers it appears just to ice the same team they iced this season will eat up the cap space they have and they might not be able to replace McDonald even. And that's if they are a cap team when they really haven't been. They have an internal budget that is typically lower than the cap.
