  1. The only choice right now is any coach that is willing to let this team play pond hockey instead of trying to incorporate a bunch of systems that restricts the talent we have. I find that the successful teams in today's NHL are the teams with coaches that allow the players to play. It's fine to have some kind of structure but at the end of the day today's game is way too fast to start telling players when to go, how to defend etc. Everyone that plays hockey knows the basics, let them play.
  2. Babcock couldn't win with a stacked team in Toronto. He is way overrated.
  3. What a joke. I just heard only one game. What is wrong with this league
  4. Am I allowed to say that "we suck" or I am setting a bad example.
  5. Congratulations guys. Well deserved. Thank you for being a part of this community for many years and contributing in such a positive manner. Happy holidays with health and happiness for you and your families.
  6. It does not apply and therefore we have no choice but to ban you.
  7. And then this thread is justified once again
  8. Mine is pretty complicated. I visited Greece once, well not really visited, I flew over it. Then I had a dream I was a coach for a peewee team but we never won a game. So I attended a coaching seminar and failed. I can't skate so no one wanted me to be their coach but I was offered a job to carry the coach's board. Regardless, this is online so I still thought it would be a cool name. Just kidding I'm Greek-Canadian and a real hockey coach.
  9. While I agree with everyone saying that our D needs major improvement it doesn't change the fact that Price is allowing weak goals that he would have saved in the past. The last few years we've had trouble scoring goals. That's not the case so far this year. We have a very fast team and a whole bunch of hungry young players that have a nose for the net. I really like the style of hockey we are playing. Our breakouts and transition through the neutral zone are much better than in previous years. If anything, Price should be rejuvenated with all the new faces and the way the team is scoring goals. All he has to do is stop one less goal a game and we'd be winning more often. As a few of you said, he's mentally checked out. When you're making the kind of money he's making, you have to be the best player on the team.
  10. Price is sitting at number 32 in the league in terms of save percentage and 30th for goals against. At a time when the Habs are averaging 3.3 goals per game, one can only feel that with just average goaltending we'd be winning more games. I personally would like to see him traded or benched. I feel just like the Pacioretty era has ended and needed to end, the Price era needs to end as well. My personal opinion is that we'd be a better team without him. At this stage of the season, he's only costing us games. I just keep shaking my head at some of the goals that he allows and I scream at the television everytime he goes down on his knees on high shots while playing deep in his crease.
  11. Actually quite the opposite for Paccioretty. He was the most underpaid player in the league based on the numbers he put up. Still happy to see him go though since he's a one dimensional player. Pleky on the other hand was always a competitor and was put in difficult situations due to his defensive upside. He was an asset for the Canadiens while he was in his prime. Nice to see him retire on good terms. I always liked him as a player, he always gave 100 %. He was a true professional.
  12. I feel like Jedi said that if we get rid of the dead weight that you mentioned then we have a shot at the playoffs. I feel that given Julien's contract he shouldn't have to worry too much about job security with MB if he decides to keep benching or limiting the playing time for Alzner, Shaw, Deslauriers, Benn and even Price if he doesn't play up to par.
  13. His salary is a huge part of it but clearly not his fault. Having said that, he's not the same Price that was stealing games for us and standing on his head. I don't feel he's in the top 10 in the league anymore and having that contract definitely hurts our chances of moving him.
  14. Agreed. Problem is who will take them. If Julien continues limiting their playing time or scratching them then I have no issues if they're on the team until we can find a trading partner.
  15. I know it's really really early in the season but we look really good so far. It's been a pleasant surprise and the hockey is fast and exciting. How long do you guys feel we can keep this up? Will we crash and burn or are we headed to the playoffs? I predict we'll be a playoff team this year. So far we've been getting it done without Price having to stand on his head. If anything, he's been a bit of a disappointment thus far, too many soft goals for my liking.
  16. No point in watching this game. It's so depressing following this team right now.
  17. Why is Alzner even on this team. Why is he even in the NHL. Why is he making so much money. Oh wait, we have the best GM of all time.
  18. At the time, I thought that getting Julien was a much better option than Therrien. In hindsight, did we mess up? Boston is killing it since Julien left and with the same core players. This whole season has been a mess but we still have the same core of players that were winning once upon a time. Is the coaching bad or is it the players? Would Therrien has done a better job this year?
