  1. ^hmm Boston should not be counted as a bottom feeder. I was wondering about them earlier when they were only playing the weakest teams, but they just had a successful west coast swing. Hmmm wonder what that feels like!
  2. his failure string goes back to the Subban trade. Last year, everything he has done was the wrong move, especially signing 3 "rugged" puds at the deadline when scoring was needed, IMO soiling whatever team unity there might have been
  3. what was he doing last game trying to generate something offensively. they should be telling him to step back and at least do what he supposedly has done well up to now in his career. I might be happy just with that
  4. I have never been a big fan. He has rarely shown up when needed most, eg in the playoffs. He seems happy these days to collect his big money and steer clear of difficult situations on the ice. He shoots when he should pass, passes when he should shoot, and just generally looks clueless offensively while, as others have pointed out, management clings to the idea that he is defensively responsible, while failing to see that he may be responsible but is at this point unable to compete. This is the longest serving member of the team, and when things have gone south in recent years, he just doesn't step up and make his teammates better let alone himself. Uninspiring
  5. At this point any deal Bergevin makes will be a bad one, as he can't make a good one anymore even when in a position of strength. Right now he will be taken advantage of so badly it will set the team back even further. Molson needs to step in. Bergevin has taken the team several strides backwards without a prospect of getting much better at any point in the future
  6. I'll tell you what's wrong with Julien in a nutshell. Dwight King. He may or may not have asked Bergevin to go get King, but he defended King's honour when anyone could see he was good for nothing, and continued to play him.
  7. I had the misfortune of being in Toronto Saturday night visiting a friend (I live in Bruins country), and the added misfortune of being in a bar while Toronto was humiliating the Habs for the first of no doubt many times in the years to come. It was a pretty humbling experience and, although the fans were getting on my nerves, I totally got that it's their time now. Habs ownership has settled for incompetence for too many years now. Building a team around Price kept them respectable but nothing more. Now that is gone. On the one hand, they shouldn't be doing this terribly with the talent they do have; on the other hand, they have gotten worse while quite a few of their rivals have improved. Does anyone remember MacGuire's rant after they lost to Rangers last year's playoffs? It is looking like he was right on the money
  8. that game could be the turning point of the season. Maybe the best thing that could happen is total and utter collapse from here on in
  9. I get the strong feeling that that is the closest the team gets to .500 this year
  10. yeah what is DLR doing anyways? So many reasons why they lost but allowing 3 PP goals and not scoring any ranks very high
  11. yup after a few good games this team is utterly lost and disorganized. Poor constructed yes, and that's on management, and poor personnel decisions as well. I mean, putting in a character guy like Deslaurier when there are scorers in Laval. Playing Froese like he is the new PLekanec, and Plekanec like he is the old Plekanec, bleh
  12. wow this is just sad. 3 goals for Arizona on the PP, none for the Habs. Every goal by Arozona was the result of sustained pressure and puck control and getting bodies in front. Every goal by the Habs was off the rush except for Weber's. I know Habs aren't a good team but with some effort and pride they should have been able to win this
  13. another good game for Alex. Like most of his teammates, his D zone play is nervewracking, but at least he has offensive upside
  14. he looked gassed in the latter half of the third and in OT. Not that that's an excuse
  15. man was he terrible tonight or what?
  16. I can't remember the last time a review went the Habs way such a frustrating game to watch. between the 2 disallowed goals there were so many chances to score where it looked like a sure goal and the puck hopped over a stick, was shot wide, or shot right into Dubnyk. Also frustrating to watch Minn hemming the Habs in their own end most of the night. When they would get possession in their own end they generally assisted Min in getting the possession back. Finally - Price, Drouin and Weber out. That's like 20+ mill right there. Add in the 8.5 they haven't spent and you get the expected results on the ice
  17. one negative aspect to this recent spurt is that MB will be back to thinking (knowing) that he has assembled a good team. They have been overachieving the last few games as they were underachieving before. It's pretty hard to even make the playoffs with a team that is 8.5 mill under the cap. The sad part is that with all his overspending on D, right now it's looking like the D is where most improvement is needed!
  18. I agree he should have been traded, more to avoid overpaying than anything else. The team as constructed cannot win anything even with a healthy Price, so why tie up so much money in his salary. Most Cup wins in recent years have done so with a good goalie who rose to the occasion, not a great one who stood on his head, which so far Price hasn't done in the playoffs anyway
  19. disappointing about the injury as he was looking really good. Let's hope he regains a spot with the big team when he returns
  20. Shaw is finally contributing the way he was supposed to when he came here. Let's hope he stays disciplined and injury free
  21. He's been noticeable lately, and generally for positive reasons
  22. yeeeessss! Goalie of the future?
  23. it might well have been another embarrassing loss if Price had been in net
