  1. When I put on the game they were in the process of disputing the CLB goal. One goal and it was a sketchy one
  2. yeah going behind the net on an odd man break..hmmm
  3. wow just came to find out CLB 0-5 on the PP tonight. The PP looked pretty dangerous
  4. he seems to take a lot of penalties..I'll give him that
  5. I am hoping Scherbak can get on one of the top two lines
  6. they were singing deslaurier's praises on the French feed. Froese looks utterly useless and lost
  7. I didn't "start an argument". I made comments about Max's replies to the interviewer that I thought were shocking, and several people disagreed. Of those who disagreed, only you were Edit. Not sure where you think I lost the argument..
  8. this relates to what I have been trying to say. The comments were inopportune and one just piled on top of the other, like excuses and sour grapes. Who cares if the first line was getting the better matchups. Why would he say that in an interview? And, like I said, when he had those breakaways that he shot right into the goalie, was that also the matchups issue or was that Max the perfectionist trying too hard?
  9. I don't think your referring to Byron and Galchenyuk as being on the first line and having fewer points than Max is quite fair, given that both have spent a lot of the season on the 4th line, while Max has been on the first and second lines all year. But note they have almost as many points in spite of that! So you seem just as guilty as I in stating facts which don't hold up well to scrutiny. Apparently my biggest mistake seems to be questioning your "facts" or their relevance to the argument.
  10. I think I'm getting a sense of why this board has very few posters One thing you might try is to listen to somebody's arguments as if they might actually have some validity, rather than ridicule them every chance you get. Then you might find yourself having interesting discussions with people other than yourself and the three friends who agree with you. For instance, yes it's just one game, but they were all in a multigame slump. A change is made and suddenly Drouin and Galchenyuk are succeeding, while Max is making excuses like saying he is a perfectionist who doesn't handle periods in his own end very well.
  11. It's a small samples size but yes it is a fact that as soon as moved him away from Drouin and Galchenyuk, that line combined for 2 of the 3 goals against Buffalo. He has more points than anyone on that line except Drouin is another way of saying he has fewer points than everyone on the first line except Galchenyuk I suppose. No points in 6 games.
  12. other than he doesn't seem to be taking any responsibility while making a lot of excuses, combined with the fact that he isn't producing while the 1st line magically is producing without him, no, nothing at all. How about the next time he goes in on a breakaway or a shootout he actually doesn't shoot it right at the goalie? But then maybe it was the line matchups.
  13. geez, maybe they can hold off on 8 mill next year to recoup some of what they are paying MB after he is jettisoned, which can't be too soon
  14. I've never heard of the guy and he is being portrayed as a sort of saviour
  15. I still can't get over the 8+ mill in cap space that could have been used to sign Markov or Radulov and is now just sitting there. It's psychologically bad and if you took that much away from any contending team it could turn them into a non contender. How are they supposed to succeed like this?
  16. Did anyone read this article http://montrealgazette.com/sports/hockey/nhl/hockey-inside-out/stu-cowan-smiles-and-optimism-in-habs-locker-room-sunday-morning The more I read, the more my jaw dropped. It was one offensive comment after another from this guy. Just a few examples 1) making fun of the Grey Cup 2) saying that he didn't do well with Chucky and Drouin because they are both perimeter players. He said he tried to drive to the net but it's not really his style 3) saying that the Chucky Drouin Byron line benefited from good matchups to explain why they carried the team Sat night 4) saying he is a perfectionist and playing in his own end like he had to so much lately makes it hard to cash in when he gets a scoring chance OMG
  17. yeah, those few good games turned out to be the anomaly
  18. I know the argument that Subban was perhaps too "up" when they were losing all those games, but he did seem to put on his best effort every night. He did make mistakes but those were partly because nobody was doing anything so he had to carry the puck so much. Perhaps the other guys were more upset about losing after the game, but it would have been nice if they played like that during the game.
  19. it wasn't a good choice. You go with either the hot hand or the guy who is better on the shootout. Hudon would have been a gutsy choice and well deserved as he is playing well I know he did hit the post but Byron used to score at will on a breakaway or shootout. He seems to have lost his touch
  20. The first 2 Pred shootout guys tried to deke and failed. Turris decided to shoot and scored the first 2 Habs shootout guys shot and failed. Patches...decides to shoot too and fails. How astute
