    I think it's somewhat funny that 80% of the fanbase was able to predict three years ago that Therrien's system would crumble, Bergevin would screw up the Subban negotiations and end up alienating or trading him, and the Habs would struggle to win as soon as they weren't getting all-star goaltending. It was all entirely predictable. That Molson, Bergevin, and company couldn't see what all of us could is disturbing but also funny because of how obvious it was.

    they hitched their wagon to that "system" and we are all reaping the consequences.  Problem is, they are all getting richer and we are just unhappy fans

  2. wow what a terrible team.  The score may have been close but the outcome was never in doubt.  Even if Habs had tied it, they would have blown it quickly.

    I guess the best thing is for them to keep losing, especially if they play like this.

    I know this team struggles to score, but De La Rose with 2 minutes left?????  Every time he had the puck in the offensive zone he just left it there

  3. I pray it's true, if Habs can get a couple of key pieces for him and have it cost about the same amount cap wise.  One has to be a strong scoring forward.  the other has to be a strong puck moving D.  No Alzners or DLRs please!  But, you know, even getting one of those pieces and a solid prospect or draft pick might be ok if it means they don't have that horrible albatross of a contract!

  4. that may be but he hasn't really done much to get anyone else going in the last few years, so I'm not sure why anyone would be rotated to his line, and how it would benefit them.  Byron, par contre, has done pretty well whomever he is with.  Started the season on tghe 4th line even though he was one of the only 20 goal scorers last year, and last I looked he is producing at a similar clip this year

  5. I remember when they signed him to his first big contract maybe 8 years ago, and there was a sports commentary on TV to the effect that the Canadiens have "settled".  Not very strong, not very fast, not very good shot, not very big.  Good but not great.  While he has been great at times and in certain situations, he rarely really brought it over the course of a grueling playoff run.  Like Markov and Price, he got you to the playoffs and was then broke your heart by failing to elevate his game above regular season form, and that's being kind
