    Dont be surprised if he comes back.  I call ABSOLUTE BS on the whole thing.  I have YET to see a "real" article saying he has a broken vertebrae.  I think its all overreacting BS from Montreal, and I dont mean just the team.

    Is your theory that he's fine and the Habs held him out for 6 weeks just to make it look real, surprising the world with his return for Game 1 of the playoffs?

    While there was plenty of BS (corporate boycotts, ridiculous 911 calls, dumb claims for a suspension to Chara) I don't see what an elaborate ruse does to benefit the Canadiens. And we all know the Habs, like any other franchise, aren't going to do anything if there's no benefit to it.

    I know it was meant in jest when someone else mentioned it, but knowing how corrupt the Montreal police can be, I wouldn't be surprised if Chara is served with a warrant prior to game three. Supposedly the investigation is still "on-going," so they could still argue exculpatory reasons and try to completely screw the Bruins.

    I did joke about it but if just a question period would occur I think it would pump the Bruins even more.

    In Response to Re: Boston vs Montreal- Part 33- Are You Ready? : I think there's a better shot of 2 separate meteors hitting both the Bell Center and the TD Garden than there is of the provincial government pulling any shenanigans on Chara, the Bruins, or anything / anyone else. This series will be decided on the ice: as it should be.

    What size meteors?

    Your roof is covered with meteors.  Take a magnet to your rain gutter and you will likely find a few very small meteors.

    Big meteors are rare, but the smaller ones practically rain upon the planet - just like the tears of Habs fans when they get cleaned 4 straight by the Bruins.

    Wait a second - never mind if I'm ready.

    What about Kaberle? 

    Someone has to tell Kaberle about this playoff thing, he may not know anything about it since he's been on the Leafs so long.

    He might be booking tee times and vacations for this week.

    OK, it was partly in jest, but........no, thats not what I think (6 weeks, etc.)  However, I do think the organization, corporations, etc., made a HUGE deal out of something they knew NOTHING about, other than what was being reported.  And, I put a HUGE blame on ALL the media. 

    I think Max was hurt.  Not NEARLY as bad as they all made it out to be.  I would NOT be shocked to see him come back and as the matter of fact, Im almost expecting it.  I do NOT believe he had a broken neck, but if someone wanted to link to a reputable source with an actual x-ray that had some way or proving it was him, I would gladly apologize.  IF he had a fractured vertebrae, I think it MIGHT have been a hair-line fracture about 1 mm in total length that was COMPLETELY overblown and irresponsibly reported in a misleading manner.  For him to be back skating as fast as he was with a broken neck, I dont think ANYONE was looking out for his best interests.  He has to be doctor cleared, right?  What doctor clears someone with a broken neck to skate after 3 weeks?  Ive known people who suffered broken necks, the same exact type of fracture as was reported as the matter of fact, and their doctor told them to do nothing for like 2 months.  Yes, he is a professional hockey player, but come on!  You dont start skating that fast after a "severe" concussion and broken neck.  It WREEKS of something fishy.

    Is he skating? I hadn't seen reports of him practicing in Brossard at all. Maybe I missed them, as I've been tremendously busy the last couple of weeks.

    I don't think the injury reports were fabricated. I think the sever concussion may have been misdiagones, and the overall response was...well..."over the top" doesn't do justice to the week of stupidity that was on display in the aftermath of the Chara hit. But I think if there was fabrication, Pacioretty would be on the ice ready to play, because the Habs have needed him, and would love to have him for this series against Boston. The Habs with Pacioretty surely have a better chance to knock off Boston than the Habs without him.

    Why do you insist on making sh*t up?

    This story was published in the Gazette on Saturday. According to that, he hasn't skated outside of taking the ice himself before a Habs practice on April 1. He hasn't practiced at all, and no doctor has cleared him to do anything, which means he's not "close to a return" in any realistic sense, as after he's cleared he'd have to have several days of skating to return to game fitness.

    http://www.montrealgazette.com/sports/Doctors+have+final+Pacioretty/4586718/story.html

    Maybe he'll be back this year. Maybe he won't. But he won't be back this week (Games 1 and 2),  that seems clear.

    Montreal has been a lousy come-from-behind team this year. The game when they shocked Boston by erasing the 2-0 late-3rd defecit was an anamoly. Getting out to a lead is crucial-- for Montreal at least.

    I have more faith in Boston's comeback ability. And that's not because the Habs don't play with heart--they have lots of it (by all rights, they shouldn't be 6th with the guys they missed for long stretches this year). But teams can and do wear them down, and that IMO is the biggest reason that comebacks haven't been their forte.

    Agreed.  Been waiting for this.  It's going to be a stressful week or two, but I've wanted this matchup all along.  Rivalries are the best.

    kennedy don't be disillusioned- the b's are no comeback kids either. falling behind to the habs starts all those "not again" thoughts, that can creep into their psyche. rather not go there

    That's true....but this year, I think I have more faith in the Bruins to erase a 2 goal deficit than I do Montreal. I don't base that on any stats (I don't know them offhand), just gut feeling.

    And I'm not sure how many "not again" thoughts there are. Most players on both rosters haven't played against each other in the playoffs. The last time they did play, Boston won without breaking a sweat. Even in the regular season, while the Habs won 4 of 6, the Bruins won 2 of the last 3 (and scored something like 16 goals in the process). I *HOPE* the Bruins psyche is fragile--especially Tim Thomas'....I just don't hold out much hope that it to be.

    I think the B's could likely erase a two goal deficit playing in Boston ,if they get down by two in Montreal it just might be lights out.If Montreal gets one of the two games in Boston[I don't think they will] this may be a long series.

    Sad but it comes to reffing, I just hope it is true and fair, I realize there is going to be the odd shiite penalty, I just want the calls right.

    Of playoff teams, the B's had the 4th fewest minors, the fewest in the east, the habnots were 2nd most behind only Pit, so this should be similar. ya right!

    The B's were 2nd to Pit in majors, habs 8th.

    A very interesting stat B's had 5 bench minors(too many men) will this cost them this year, mon has 14.

    Please, let's see the best reffed games in decades, and let the teams decide.

    Keep 2 hands on the stick, the stick on the ice and there should be no stupid penalties.

    GOOOOOOOO BEEEEEEEEEEEEEE's
