What exactly does Mashinter bring to this team? He's not a good enough skater to forechecking and too slow to take the body. And somebody, either Mashinter or Bickel, has to get into a fight after Biron is run and if they felt the Pacciorety hit was dirty). And I'm not a big fight guy but show some pride.

Miller and Kreider seem too comfortable in their places in the lineup.

The one guy who seems to be really trying to keep his spot and compete is Gilroy (and I can't believe I'm saying that).

4) It's not that they lost the game, they seem to always lose in Montreal, it's the way they lost.

It seems that the coaches are holding the team back for whatever reason. Whether it is retaliating for a bad hit, doing something other than dumping and chasing, or just allowing for more creativity (Ex: Powerplay), they just look scared to do anything. The question is why?

Also getting really sick and tired of the "gut instinct" decisions torts makes... It is getting old.
