Subban and Gorges need to be reunited. Diaz and Boullion are being relied on too much.

There are a variety of little roster fine-tune changes I think might be helpful... if we were buyers. If this is the level of performance and interest we can expect, I severely doubt we're going to be buyers by the end of the week, let alone the trade deadline.

Meet the new Montreal Canadiens, same as the old Montreal Canadiens.

This is us, people. Not the team that started the season hot. This is who we are. And as a systems coach, Therrien is awful. It's clear from the way guys like Gorges and Subban are actually regressing under his coaching.

Exactly this. Our hot start was simply over-achieving against mostly low-tier teams, nothing more. Our goalie is solid (& can't be blamed today, what with most of the game being played on our end), our D is decent but a bit young yet, and our offence absolutely stinks.

Repeat of last year. Yay.

It is not the end of the season. We are just having a bad period.

We've lost two straight and haven't frankly looked particularly good for ten days now. There is no scoring, because the majority of our supposed top-six forwards aren't, well, scoring. Cole, Gionta, DD, Pacioretty -- all in slumps. Therrien has made a mess of the D pairings and we are not even able to sustain OZone pressure, let alone generate quality chances with any regularity. And there is no injury excuse to use; the whole team is healthy. It's not the end of the season, but we simply can't afford to go on protracted losing streaks. In a 48-game season, a three-game losing streak is actually serious.

Yep, fantastic 3rd pairing for sure. Just absurd that our only top pairing D man isn't on the top pairing.

Mute your TV or switch to RDS :P

I dont mind cole. Theres very few announcers I dislike and that list is 1. Jack Edwards. 2. Thats the end of the list.

Therrien needs to do something.

and Yup. Eller and the Kids are together
