I consider Mathias Brunet to be one of the most reliable Montréal hockey writers. He isn't hotheaded and he doesn't have an axe to grind.
There seems to be a vendetta against Souray on the part of some fans on this board as well as on RDS. There is also a supertolerance for Francis Bouillon. The Cube does the best he can, and I admire him for it, but it's important to recognize that he has his limitations.
I would characterize Carbonneau's game plan against NJ as giving Aebischer maximum protection and covering the Devils man-to-man. They almost succeeded, and they carried a 1-0 lead well into the 3rd period. As for the finger pointing so common on this board, I think Samsonov made some good plays in the offensive zone last night. I could say the same about Ryder. Even Niinamaa played well when paired with Komisarek. And of course, the Bonk line was excellent.
