What they lack is desire. Yes, desire. Much like the Buffalo Sabres, they have speed and have proven they can skate with the best and outskate most teams when they want to. That's what separates our Habs from Buffalo. The hunger and desire.
The Sabres skate with authority and are very much in touch with their strength which is speed. And they use that weapon every game. Yes, all teams have let-downs every now and then, but I've seen it on too many occasions with the Habs thus far in only 10 games. They stunk up the joint with lacklustre play against Chicago, Ottawa, Boston, and now Toronto.
We were lucky to get a point tonight vs a mediocre Leafs team with a depleted defense core and weak goaltending. Thank Aebischer for the point.
The Habs don't lack desire. I think the Habs lacked desire maybe 3 periods since the beginning of the years. The 2nd period against the Leafs today was absolutely horrendous, the 2nd period against Chicago and the 1st against the Avs. So out of 10 games, the Habs lacked desire in maybe the equivalent of 1 game, that's a pretty good ratio and it's even better when you consider that we won 2 of the 3 games in which we have blown a period.
There is a lot of character on this edition of the Habs and if there is one thing that this team doesn't lack : it's desire.
