  1. Limited to 9 minutes of ice time as of ~5 min left in third period tonight.

    Terrible. No excuse for this to have gone on for as many years unchecked as it has. There's no way a bunch of fans on a forum see something that management can't. So tired of Therrien and his...illogical decisions.

  2. My major fear at this point is that we've put all our eggs into one basket with Desharnais and Pacioretty. One line is easy enough to contain in a seven game series, and I would like to see some team-wide chemistry built with regards to Vanek as the season winds down, so that we can successfully shake up lines when we inevitably need to.

  3. I don't mean to be a hater here, but what do you really expect him to say when he, you know, is asked a question by a mob of reporters immediately after losing and playing quite poorly in the recent past? <_<

    "I thought we played great", wouldn't really work given the scoreboard..."banana creme pie" wouldn't make much sense (tasty a statement as it may be), and it would be quite incendiary for him to throw someone under the bus and say something like, "...but coach wasn't matching lines very well, and Carey looked like Swiss cheese".

    So that leaves things like:

    "I’ve been through enough (to know) you can’t just show up in Game 1 of the playoffs and think ‘now I’m going to start playing, now our team’s going to click.’ That doesn’t work. We have to make sure we’re prepared this week and have the effort. If we get scored on, so what? We have to bounce back and have that championship mentality.”

    Problem identified, potential future implications of problem (regarding playoffs) identified, personal accountability, and then solution identified. If you maintain skepticism that he'll do it - that's cool, I get it. But sports media isn't really going to give us any sort of insight into...anything. At least so far as I have seen during my time on Earth. So there's no point hating him for what he said :)

    /end rant

  4. I hate him on the Pleks line but I have to give him his props. Wonderful patience waiting until Fleury had committed before feathering a nice pass to Cams for the one-timer.

    Can we expect him back for the last two games of the regular season (to get in shape a bit) and the first round? We could really use him. And it would be nice since he would have three weeks of rest and be fresh.

  5. I wasn't wild about the trade, but I have to say that so far, it's looking pretty good and I was wrong. Mara seems a far more solid player this time around, but that's probably also because the team plays its system so much more effectively this year (last season, it was basically just "let Halak face 40+ shots a night and hope for the best").

    This. And he drew a double minor...oh wait, that was a regular minor.

    Anyway, I'm fine with him being in the lineup for now over Picard and the like.

  6. I don't know if anybody else noticed it, but Halpern made an incredible "save" on a wraparound attempt which would otherwise have been successful since Carey was stuck on the far side of the net. It was pretty early on, and I'm not sure how he played the rest of the game...but credit where credit is due.
