Not a mistake. They had to re-sign Price. It would be the same as Ottawa not re-signing Karlsson.

What really hurt them was re-signing Galchenyuk to his ludicrous contract and putting him on the 4th line. It's been a ticking time-bomb in Mtl since they traded Subban. They haven't addressed their #1 center issue for a few years now. Fact is they're not very good.


Carey Price is going to be 38 and still getting $10.5M per season.  There's no other goalie getting paid anywhere close to that.  Also, Price has had some concerning injury issues.  I know it would've taken a massive set of balls to trade Price at some point last season or this season, but I think it would've been the best way for the Canadiens to move forward.  Get a couple great assets for him (and/or use the $$ to resign Radulov or whoever) and remake the team a bit.  Man, they could've tried to get Fleury from Pittsburgh for nothing.  

The best case scenario with Price is that he plays great and continually makes them a playoff bubble team.

The Habs also have Charlie Lindgren (23 yrs old) in the AHL who is one of the best goalies on the planet not in the NHL.  

For those keeping track (nobody), Lindgren played his first game of the season for the Habs the other night and posted a shutout.  He's starting for them again tonight against Vegas as Price is injured (as I mentioned in my old post above, injuries are a concern with Price).

Charlie Lindgren with another good performance for Montreal and a W last night, giving up two goals.

I've been listening to hockey central at noon on podcasts lately because there just isn't enough good sens podcasts but man, I had never realized how much of a tool Kyprios is! I realize he's trying to inflame people but he just comes off as an idiot! 
It's bad enough how reactionary they are with the leafs but he's so unknowledged about the situation with the sens and other teams. It's no wonder fan bases are uneducated when this is the state of the media

I feel like we're at the point where most of these more traditional hockey shows are so incredibly redundant. The hardcore hockey fan is pretty well-informed these days, and listening to talking heads like Kypreos or whoever doesn't really offer any new insight.

He comes off as an idiot or he is an idiot? I honestly don't listen to any of it. Team 1200 when I'm in the car and that's it.

I've been saying this for years -- Kypper played too many years without a helmet. It was a concussion that finally knocked him into retirement, and he clearly has had multiple instances. He simply isn't all there (not that there was much there to begin with).

I don’t understand why I can’t download any of the team 1200 in podcast format.
It’s really annoying. I can’t just tune into the radio at work.

I download them all the time. Well, the Pierre segments, at least. I use Podcast Addict and searching "tsn1200" gives me TGOR, The Drive, In The Box, Redblacks Radio Show, Offside (Macramalla), Tee it Up, Corner Kicks, Battle of the Atlantic (new one), That's What She Said, TSN Weekend.

If you search "McGuire" you will find a separate podcast of just McGuire's spot on TGOR (it's will also be in one of the TGOR hours). There are other McGuire podcasts but, interestingly, his spot on TSN690 in the afternoons is not there (you can likely listen to that if you download the afternoon TSN690 show, I think it's Melnick in the Afternoon or something like that).

And if you just want to listen on your PC then you can go to tsn1200.ca and click on Audio, then More Audio (or click on Shows, then TGOR or whichever). Or follow TSN1200 on twitter and they post links to all the audios shortly after they happen (this will get it faster than searching in a podcast app)

Exactly. Sometimes people just want validation that their team made a good trade, or their best players are the best. There's almost no new insite with most of these guys.

I don’t think podcast addict is available for iPhone l can’t find it

I think you put your reply in the wrong place. If you have an iPhone I guess you are restricted to what's on iTunes? In PodcastAddict the search includes a check box for using the iTunes search engine, but it's not checked. Although I thought the podcasts were available on iTunes. Not sure.

I ended up finding it in the iPhone podcast application. It doesn’t show up when you search tsn which is weird since the provider is TSN 1200.

Watching Vegas win with their 4th string goalie is getting old.

They won their game here with their 11th ranked powerplay. They are 6th best in the league with risk PP opportunities. Is the league helping them along just a little bit?

No idea. Should've been something like "total", but that doesn't look like "risk" at all.

Turris with a goal and an assist in his first game in a mustard jersey. Preds beat the Penguins in a shootout.
