You mean Ryder?

I totally agree, and this is why I believe in the chances of Pacioretty to make the team as soon as next year. We desperaly need more players willing to pay the price, and less perimeter players. It is so frustrating to see our guys just cycling the puck and shooting from the point when noone is even screening the goalie or is standing in the slot. The only players willing to do that (and this is sporadically) are Andrei Kostitsyn, Latendresse, Koivu (on the PP), and it pretty much ends there.

Montreal is winning in every part of the rink except in front of the net. Gainey and Carbonneau need to take the Lions of Winter to the Land of Oz and get them some courage.

Letting the goalie see the puck and doing flamingo impressions is making Biron look spectacular.
Great post, totally agree here. It pisses me off how easy Biron's job is right now. His defence and our offence are making him look like Martin Brodeur, while you clearly see that he can't control his rebounds for ****.

At this point, I'd definately demote higgins and put latendresse on the first instead, or reunite the old kovalev line, and put lats with koivu. At least Carbo can get Latendresse to ****ing park his ass in front of the net at all time.
