The big problem in my opinion, other than the PP of course, is the fact the Habs have too many of the same players up front. 3 lines of skill and no grit on any of those 3 lines. The Habs have had much success in the last 2 years on the PP, but this year, they are trying too hard, looking for the perfect play and they are missing that big point shot. They would need that big presence in front of the net to change things up a bit on the man advantage.

I personally really like the way Koivu has played, hes actually throwing hits and is very intense on the backcheck also. I really think the Habs should offer him an extension before they sign anyone else on the team. He has been the core of this team for a while now and I do think Gainey will have to make a move in order to bring some grit on the top 2 lines because they lack that at the moment,especially when they need that big hit to wake the team up.

My 2 cents
