Carbo, then, will give them all chances he can to prove themselves. If they keep failing, he'll replace them. This way, he can say to his veterans that he gave them a good shot a proving themselves, and that Chipchura/Pacioretty/Laraque beat them fair and square for a spot.
Then they can't whine or be *****y, or they'll be frowned upon by the rest of the team.
It's the beginning of the season, we have some hurt players, so it's the time to do it. Remember Carbonneau played about 20 years in the NHL and understands player psyche better than we do. You don't coach only players, but humans as well.
For now, they aren't delivering. Carbo will start giving time to Chipchura soon enough, and if Chip plays well, it will be impossible to wedge him out of a spot.
Habs only gave
games during the regular time ; those goals weren't scored when the 4 th line was on the ice , so where is the problem exactly ?
The only problem i see with the 4 th line until now , is that they are not playing together and are trying to do too much things , because they are all fighting againts each others , to keep their spot with the team .
