Ilya will suely have one of those games to really bloat his stats, I think every time i hear Kovalchuk scores i'm gonna upchuck.

Well better dust off the old form seats, and park my behind on them to watch this game, at least those seats have seen truely great teams,


JM can you please have someone trip Gill in practice, ya know just a little ankle sprane or something to give him a few games off, just a thought.

Go Habs

Two lucky wins and five straight losses to begin 2009. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel, or is that light coming from the headlight of a speeding train called "Atlanta" & a certain Russian who knows how to find the back of the net.

The last 40 minutes of the Ottawa game showed a scarey future. Perhaps BG & the boys just want to scare the fans, this being the season of Halloween.

Remember, these hockey players are only playing up to their ability, they didn't chose their line-mates or the style of play this team works on.

If you blame anyone, blame the mgmt that put this team together tonite.

Golf Habs Golf

the game is a 7 30 start not 7 00 as posted above

i dunno the guys just cant get it going for 3 periods for whatever reason and they are easily demoralized after being scored on.

Many issues right now from the anemic offense to the weak forecheck inability to sustain pressure and then theres the horrid defense, i just dont know where this is headed...... actually i do know but dont want to look

Here we go.

Some predictions:

Our first line will start playing like a first line. Look for a 3 point night from Gomez & 1 goal each from Cammy & Gionta. Pleks will continue to score & AK will have another big game. On the blueline, MAB will get at least one point on the PP & Gorges will make at least 2 game-saving covers for Gill. Carey will be sharp & allow only 1 goal.

4-1 Habs. And FINALLY, we will get our convincing win.

The habs should be 0-7 because of Price its 2-5.

Disagree, the Habs should be 7-0 but because of Price we're really 2-5... Good thing the guys bailed him out in the first 2 games too or we'd be 0-7! ;)

Anyway, all kidding aside Halak should get this start and I suspect he will.

This is what we need. Atlanta then Islanders!! This is the two games that we will win. We will win them in convincing fashion also.

Price will start and will be great. He will play the next game too, all fired up.

Put the stars on the first line. Get them going and it will spread throughout the team.

Lets go boys!!!!!!
