As for Carbo, oh boy, don't even get me started. To me, he has mismanaged the roster. Just as an example, the PP was you club's bread and butter....yet Carbo has total destroyed any leverage/strength that your club had as an advantage. The line combos are horrendous and only recently started trying to use old line combos. Lastly, Saku Koivu could be a captain on many NHL clubs any day of the week..........the same can't be said for Alex. He is a scorer, when he wants to be...and is NOT a leader.
Last time I looked Carbo stripped him of his "A" as well.
The PP doesn't work because no one shoots, not because of the line combos.
You can't score if you don't shoot. Montreal is missing a pure goal scorer, someone that shoots the good shots, unlike Kovalev.
