I can't bet against the Habs by rule. There is no rule against gambling on the scoring ability of McDavid and Draisaitl

Makes no sense whatsoever that he wasn't scratch earlier if that's the case
- Karine Hains


Part of the narrative for the playoffs, Staal is not being scratched, he is injured... I suspect he got injured on one of the many times he was thrown out of the face-off circle.

No Staal but the fact that they are resting it for this meaningless game means more likely than not that they want to use them in the playoffs and that's probably what he was told. And I only report what I hear/read re deal...didn't make it up.

Désolé pour la formulation hermétique. C'était un rire jaune. Je pense aussi qu'ils le reposent pour le faire jouer en séries. Ça donne le goût de s'arracher les cheveux. Si y'a un deal en place, une option aurait été de faire jouer Staal sur les 4 trios ce soir. Pour honorer la promesse.

no no lol, the line on the game. the payout was dropping because everyone was betting the oilers. when i logged on it was +182 but by the time i placed my bet is was only +174.

i'll still root for the habs but this way if they lose i at least get 5 dollars.

Yeah you win like $1.2 on a $1 bet if McDavid has 5 points or something stupid like that anyway

I picked McD and Drycycle and a few more Oil in my lineup.

I dunno... just seems pretty far fetched to me, on the whole.

I can see giving him the promise to prove he belongs in the line-up, but not a guarantee. Who does that?

Besides, I was specifically referring to the comment about resting him for the playoff run... I just cannot see how Staal is playing in the playoffs if everyone is back from injury (and even, if they are still missing people).

Honnêtement ça me décourage...le CH est pas favori pour la coupe on s’entend, c’est tellement le temps d’utiliser les jeunes et de leur donner de l’expérience

Resting him tonight tends to indicate that they want to play him in the playoffs whether we like it or not I’m afraid.

Do we know for sure Staal was promised anything?

oh, don't get me wrong, I find the whole thing ludicrous as well. I didn't hear Lebrun's comments, but he doesn't usually bring up a lot of BS, so I was wondering if he was reporting this as just a rumor, or if he thought this was a fact...

Maybe the Habs strategy is to exhaust the Leafs' centers by forcing them to continually re-take draws every time Stall gets thrown out.

That would be as efficient as the start of Ducharme era overtime strategy which was aimlessly skating around in circle with the puck without putting any pressure...ah the good old days.
