I really want to see a nitty-gritty breakdown of the Habs over the past 10 games, and what has gone wrong with them. It's the D-men I know, but I spend too much time posting after goals I miss the replays to figure out what it is exactly. I think we're too aggressive on the collapse.
Boullion and Desharnais are both completely overused. Neither warrant top pairing minutes, albeit for different reasons, yet both are a fixture on our powerplay and frequently apart of the secondary offense. It's no wonder said offense is nonexistent. Meanwhile, Gorges has regressed this season and Gionta looks more and more like a depth forward than a constant contributor.
Ryder can only do so much before teams target him near exclusively, which has happened in our recent games. Subban and Plekanec are suffering similar difficulties due to our inconsistency and Therrien seems content to change nothing. Much as Price has been a fraction of the goalie we know on a given average, he is not why we are such a disaster lately. We need a bold change to light this team on fire.
Bourque - Plekanec - Ryder
Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Gallagher
Prust - Eller - Gionta
Moen - Halpern - Desharnias
If Prust is still out, then rotate DD or Moen in based on who is better.
