I think Gallagher and Tatar have been more disappointing than Staal and Perry.

Tatar's had chances, couple inches and could've had 2. Perry looks gassed. No jump in those old legs. Stall? OK. He hasn't been terrible,  but he still needs a rest, or he will be just like he was during the season. Gallagher is definitely not helping.

No kidding! Tater and Gally are supposed to be two of our main goal scorers! the whole team stank tonight you could see it right from the start no jump an no real forecheck if we let them get going they will burn us every time. the hitting in the first game along with the forecheck kept them at bay. Dano was super soft tonight as well. Ihope Evans is back next game we need him bad! his speed and forecheck make a big difference in how we play. the D got very little help from the forwards too pretty much a sad game overall. very poorly coached in my opinion.

Pretty sure he's accidently run into somebody at one time or another.

Isn't that like a goal post? No credit, or, credit to the other player. Merrill goes out of his way to NOT make the hit.

State of our D: When you need three goals... Ben Chiarot!

He's actally been one of our best looking D so far... that is not a positive for Ben so much as a negative for the rest of our d corps. Yikes.

Reffing was as brutal as I have ever seen in a game, the goal that was challenged was a good goal though, but from no boarding call on KK, slew footing,  to butt end on Tofu to the slash on Edmundson and free punch. This game was a joke from the second period on. No conspiracy here, but after 2 games, taking out the 2 men going to the box and delay of games we have 7 and they have 3, 2 minute penalties. 

We did not have the same energy and by all accounts we were not ready for Toronto's push back. And the push back wasn't in the form of checking, slew foots, butt end, two hand slashes, boarding.....all uncalled. I think some of this is a carry over from the Tavares incident, Leaf's were ready, refs were watching everything we did and we weren't ready .

Hopefully we regroup, the refs and leaves had there payback and we win the next one.

Have to agree on the referee situation that was as bad as I have seen in a while! Four coaches (including DD) have gome on record so far complaining of the poor officiating across the league. No fines yet however they may be coming. It is one thing to miss the odd call but last night was a disaster. I know when we lose we always have a tendancy to run down the offciating but this time there is a lot of support. The goal tender interference call originated by our illustrious GM was really stupid! There was no interference on that goal and Price would have been the first to object. The cross checking penalty by KK that lead to a goal..I wonder if the stick had not broken would they have called? Probably not. The stick broke way up near the top? How about the sucker punch by Simmonds...no call?

With six minutes left what in the world was DD thinking when he pulled Price? Really? If our PP was #1 in the league probably a good coaching move. But we are not there! How many great opportunities did that produce? Very poor effort for the last 40 minutes and playing short handed for 8 minutes in the second did not help. Those four penalties just killed the effort. In two games we have scored three goals and that is a major concern which has haunted this team for the last month. #11 has not been in either game and #17 & #73 were also absent? I thought KK played a good game last night as did BC. He was the ony dman that was active and seemed to be focused. Everyone else was AWOL! 

As i have said before this team will forever remain a medicore team until major changes are made at the top. If MB and DD remain in their positions we can look forward to another 4-5 years of us continually sitting here and posting the same old rhetoric about the Habs. This team is much better than we saw last night but is being handled very poorly right now by two guys who are fighting for contract extensions and job security. Other teams in the league are now interviewing some of the available personnel to change up their management duties with far less problems than we have. When we finish this series Molson will once again hand MB an extension and then MB will hire DD to carry on the great tradition that Montreal has had over the past ten years.A once revered franchise which has now become a middle of the entire NHL medicocre boring hockey team.

Oh well all we can do is post our disatisfaction here on the forum like we know what we are talking about and continue to watch our Habs flounder around like a fish out of water. Very disappointing and frustrating year after year. Maybe we should give Babcock or Tort a try behind the bench and hire Meuller as GM? Just a thought.

With B2B coming up (the only one in the entire league schedule) it will be interesting to see what the real coach (MB) will do in regards to line formation and goal tending duties? I think that has already been answered!:6351:
