Habs/Rangers, Ryan Clowe, 'Dogs Lose Again And More...

Good Morning Addicts!

Nathan Beaulieu will make his NHL debut tonight against
the New York Rangers
 The Montreal Canadiens are back in action tonight as they host the New York Rangers. it will be the third and final meeting between the two teams with the Habs winning the first two games by a combined total of 6-1.

It seems Brandon Prust will return to the line up for Montreal after missing eight games due to a shoulder injury. His timing is quite fitting as he is back on time to face his former team. Prust is a +4 against the Rangers this season and has also notched an assist.

With Prust returning to the roster, Gabriel Dumont was sent back to the Hamilton Bulldogs along with defenseman Jarred Tinordi. Tinordi played six games during his stint with the Habs earning one assist, two penalty minutes and a +2 rating while averaging 10:32 minutes of ice time.

Nathan Beaulieu was called up from Hamilton to take Tinordi's spot on the blue line. Beaulieu has six goals and 19 assists for 25 points in 62 games for the 'Dogs. His style is more offensive than that of Tinordi and will be called upon to help the Canadiens second powerplay unit.

Habs And Hockey News 

- There has been lots of talk about the Habs interest in San Jose's Ryan Clowe as the trade deadline approaches but is he a player the Habs should acquire?

- Eric Engels (@EricEngels) takes a look at who he thinks the Habs should target on April 3rd.

- The Hamilton Bulldogs continue to struggle as they fell 4-3 to the Abbotsford Heat last night for their sixth loss in their last ten games.

I would only trade for Clowe if we give up nothing higher than a 4th round pick. I know we have a surplus, but we're still building for the future. Clowe is not part of that future.

I would offer a third round pick and throw in weber. I would then put him on a line with Ryder and Pleks. I think with Pleks feeding both Ryder and Clowe that line would be come the Habs best line. And with Clowes' size he would bring some added toughness to that line that is lacking right now.
