  1. Calgary is whooping Ottawa tonight. So Habs either have to get a point or hope that Calgary can't sweep a weary Canucks team. I don't think it's impossible that Calgary takes them all with Vancouver being at the end of their loaded schedule. So even though the odds are well in our favor from a pure stats perspective, those stats don't take into account the Flames being energized by being close to the playoffs and the Canucks fading if tired and/or eliminated early. The Habs really need to get the point they need themselves.
  2. But here's the thing: I have zero confidence in this organization to give us proper personnel deployment when healthy. If I thought that they were only using Staal and Merrill because they had no options, I'd have a bit of faith. But MB and his coaches have shown us time and again that the like the Merrill's of this league more than the Kulak's. They like the Murray's and Bouillon's more than the Beaulieu's and Pateryn's. They like the King's and Ott's more than the Galchenyuk's and Andrighetto's. They like Danault more than Suzuki and Kotkaniemi. So I have absolutely no confidence that they r
  3. Yeah, so all Montreal has to do is grab one point against Edmonton, which is locked into 2nd place and could/should rest some players in at least one of the two games you would think. Failing that, one of Calgary or Vancouver would need to go 5-0 or 7-0 respectively to tie us in points (and possibly pass us in the tiebreaker). We still have odds of 99% of making the playoffs. Odds of our catching the Jets for 3rd at this point are slim as well though. We'd need 3 points in the last two games without the Jets getting any or to go 2-0 against Edm without the Jets getting more than 1 po
  4. Ridiculous. So same type of penalty as Tom Wilson got for his two plays and meanwhile Brodie got nothing for his vicious two-handed slash on the back of JK's leg a couple of games ago. League = biased. The decisions are being made by a bunch of Ontarians in Toronto. There is the possibility they favor the Leafs and the optics are certainly as such.
  5. Looking more and more like the Habs will back into the playoffs. Odds still very high we get in but looking like we'll limp in with a sequence of bad performances and a ton of injuries. Habs better hope they get healthy within the week after the season before the post-season starts. They need to be able to sit Staal and Merrill or they're going to be out within 5 games. Bergevin's deadline acquisitions have undoubtedly all made the team worse.
  6. Wpg. They're 2-4-1 against us and 7-2 against Wpg.
  7. Bottom line is that we've had 3 coaches selected by the same guy who all seem to have the same losing philosophy. Seems to me that the obvious change needed is for the GM to pack his things and hit the road.
  8. That didn't look like a knee. Looked like he got him on the thigh, which is legal.
  9. Ducharme is not for me. I get he had odds stacked against him. But he understands deployment as little as the last two guys. Too much Staal, Perry, Danault, Weber, Chiarot, Edmundson... not enough of the younger, faster guys.
  10. Especially on the road. Why even bring your stars to Montreal?
  11. So impetus for Edm to rest players the last two if we lose tonight.
  12. Jets loss means they can't finish higher than 3rd. If Tor wins here, they're locked into 1st and Edm locked into 2nd.
  13. Why is Staal out there? Don't say for the face-off. He's awful at them and he just lost another.
