And Montreal really needs a 3rd line that can beat opponents not just limit chances against. They don't have the offensive talent to rely on just two lines to do the scoring. However, they do have the defense at the top of the lineup thanks to Plekanec that they can put a third line in a position to do some scoring.
Only when Montreal has gotten three capable scoring lines have they been good at even strength. That's the formula they need to follow.
What an embarrassing post.
Boston won a Stanley Cup with the "toughness fairy" on their team. The Kings had Kyle Clifford on their team with 10 fights.
You need to watch Prust play before you start disparaging him. Over the last two years, he has 7 short handed goals. One would think that he was "on the ice when the skilled players play" during those PP's.
I know it is tough for you to see Montreal moving in a different direction away from the soft passive team that we have been for way too long. Accept it. Times change and I am thankful that we finally have a management team that realized what our weaknesses are and did something about it.
