All of those teams have 2 games in hand so not so much.

Our Corsi numbers are off the charts!

The Russian General 11-26-2011 10:25 PM

Except PP, are we playing that bad considering all the injuries?

YES!

as long as the stats look good, who could complain :naughty:



also,

MaxPac, Eller, DD, Emelin, Weber and Subban all are looking good, and like the best is yet to come...

Price is who we thought he was...

and Cole is paying immediate dividends, if he stays healthy who knows... he could prove to be worth the term/$$ we gave him after all.


lot's of nice pieces in place, just a question of building around them properly!

Quarantesix 11-26-2011 10:34 PM

Markov will be back soon

He looks like crap.

Weber had a great opportunity to show his worth with all these injuries, but I think he has dropped the ball. When Spacek/Markov/Campoli are back, I think Weber and Diaz are going to find themselves on the outside looking in. The 3rd guy to take out paints a fuzzier picture, but knowing our injury luck, we'll never have to worry about that.

Unfortunately I would have to agree.

When Markov's back the 5 of the 6 Ds are gonna be Markov, Gorges, Subban, Gill, Emelin. With Spacek, Campoli, Weber, Diaz and Nash to a lesser degree battling for the 6th and 7th spot I would think the Habs will have to let Spacek and Campoli play unless Weber/Diaz show a significant improvement in the next several games before the others are back from injuries.

m00ks 11-26-2011 11:05 PM

The biggest positive is Markov's return is only 3 games away.

I think it's Emelin though he brings more dimension than Weber or Diaz. He's been Ok. But none of the three are currently running with it the way Subban did when he got his chance.

I'm actually quite excited for a Spacek/Markov/Campoli infusion after seeing the product without them. I think we can really do some damage if they stay healthy.

i guess it depends on expectations...

imo, a 23 year old PMD dman, with well under 100 NHL games under his belt, who is already producing offensively (on pace for 27pts), while staying in the + for +/- (even if that is a somewhat misleading stat) while getting 19+ min/game, is pretty good.

does he have lots of holes in his game.... for sure.

but imo he's showing more than enough to indicate that as he gets more and more comfortable with the NHL level & continues to get stronger (as a smallish dman, adding 5-10pds of weight + subsequent increase in strength will be have a HUGE impact on his effectiveness), his effectiveness will improve dramatically.


mark my words, by the time Weber is 26-27 (or by the time he has 200+ games of NHL experience), he'll be a clear cut top-4 PMD dman. In my mind, only question is wether he'll top out as an effective player in that role, or wether he'll take the step towards being a top-pairing caliber PMD, which I think is well within his reach if he stays healthy and continues to progress.

Nope. Last couple of games with this patchwork defense were really the only ones this season that I felt the Habs were clearly outmatched. Not surprising against Pittsburgh, but I thought we could take advantage of a Pronger-less Flyers.

But the PP is truly awful. Thank God the PK has been out of this world.

I think you're overrating him and HARD. I think he tops out as a fringe bottom pairing PP specialist. I don't see anything in his skillset that would propel him to be a "clear cut top 4 PMD" let alone be in a top pairing. Doesn't skate well enough to ever attain such status and I doubt 5-10 lbs would turn him into a defensive beast.

Not immediately but unless he plays better his tenure with the Habs will be brief.

1st in blocked shots isn't a good thing. It implies we spend the most time in our own zone in the NHL.

Yes and no. Number of shots is not alway representative of time spent in zone. Additionally, MTL is ranked 10th in shots too.

But for sure it does mean we spend a lot of time in the D zone. But hey, this is a POSITIVE thread!:laugh:
