  1. Julien is one of the main problems with this team IMO. His deployment of players at particular junctures of games is suspect at best. Thompson should almost never be on the ice when you're down by a goal late in the game, and when I say almost never, I mean NEVER! His reluctance to trust younger players before the injuries is hurting them now, players know when they're not trusted, so when they are asked to play in a role just because of an injury they have that seed planted already and know that the only reason they are getting the "trust" now is because of injury. His PP set ups are horrendous, sure, they were clicking for a little bit there but when your #1C has 1G on PP ever....then it's time to try something else....Danault has as many PPG as Nikita Scherbak has SHG...that's sad. Cousins and Weal on the PP is just straight up a head scratcher...I would personally go with someone who lights it up art 5 on 5 play, for me it's Lehkonen. I also hate it when he calls out players after a game when it is pretty obvious that that particular play was not the cause of the loss. Then sending Fleury to the press box after one bad bounce, Chiarot gets injured so now he's back in, great for the kids confidence Julien is a nice guy, that is the only thing that sets him apart from Michel Therrien, otherwise they are the same coach essentially - I didn't like the choice when it happened but was willing to give it a chance; how many 8 game losing streaks in a season do you get? I am not usually a guy that advocates for someone to be fired but I truly think it is time to turn the page and promote Ducharme or Bouchard, or both. With all of this being said, I do not think it moves the needle much this season but it allows the young guys to get used to a new system now so that next season they can all hit the ground running under a new coach.
  2. Yeah, player threads, just way more pleasing to the eye - a more organized look. Just sayin'
  3. Yeah, I know, but I just wanted to let it be known that this is the reason I do not engage anymore...ugh
  4. I really miss the old format.
  5. Worst case scenario this season was realized, would have been better to miss by a long shot then to get a 50-50 15th pick. Making the playoffs may have been MB's goal at the beginning of the season but definitely was not at the deadline, I can see why you'd sit on your hands if your team had no fight, just totally laid an egg but to reward your players with nothing after the year they put in for you is a slap in the face. I am losing faith in that MB guy again.
  6. Drouin has got be be showcased next year then moved before the deadline. Right now his value is as low as ever, so I do not like shopping him now ... he does have to go though, he doesn't fit well with this city, this group, this identity, this plan.
  7. Will C. Primeau be protected?
  8. The Habs grabbed the Bull by the horns last night and dominated a struggling team. Unlike previous games against poor teams, Montreal would play down to their level.

  9. I don't care whether Gryba is suspended or not, just hope that Eller is okay. Really hope the Habs respond well tonight.

  10. Good job at covering all that oxygen on the OT goal Hammer! Worst D man in this series!
  11. I'm not sure if my old introduction is on here when I was Habsfan4eva but here goes another attmept to introduce myself on the newer version of the forum. I used to post here a lot more but my new job keeps me away a lot more:( Username: HabsfanForever78 Real Name: Curtis Live: Peace River, AB Born: Same as above Fave All time Hab: The Rocket Fave Hab that I actually got to watch play: John Leclair Fave Current Hab: Carey Price and Michael Cammalleri are neck and neck but I also love Gomez, Gionta, Pacioretty, Plekanec, Wisniewski and Subban! Fave Game: 5-0 comeback game vs. the Rangers Least Fave Game: Whenever the Leafs beat us but especially when they beat us to keep us out of the playoffs, also the 11-1 loss to the Red Wings when we decided to demolish our franchise that Bob Gainey had to fix for us, thanks Bob.
  12. Welcome to the club Brent, I like the acquisition and hope to see him play a key role on the PK, blocking shots and using his size!
  13. who cares about WJC, but I love to watch it~!
