Why won't anyone stand in front of Biron?

Add that and add also that we are going to add new players (rookies and FA's) next year and who knows what can happen!...
Even the rookies are professional players and should be able to follow instructions. If the coach tells them to get in front of the net and cause traffic, then it doesn't take a rocket scientist to follow instructions. I can't give rookies the benefit of the doubt that still make more money in 1 year that i'll make in half my life. Rookies need time to develop their skills, not follow instructions. (that we all learned in kindergarten)
habs need to create traffic around the net. They will score more, and they will get more rebounds because biron won't see the puck to handle it. rebound control goes hand in hand with seeing the shot. again , a no brainer. ex. See koivu's play.
mtl is doing a good job along the boards and causing penalties, but the key to success is the zone right in front of the net. I'm even going so far as to say that they should run biron, even though i'm always against it. Biron is too comfortable over there, they have to get to him mentally and physically.
