It's not the system or the forward lines, it's doubt and lack of confidence. It looks very similar to what we saw at the end of Jacques Martin's tenure, when the Habs lost game after game in the 3rd period because they kept retreating into a defensive shell. It's unsustainable, both from a win perspective and from a personnel perspective.

Maybe I'm wrong, maybe it's just mid-season fatigue, the same December slump we see so often with this team. Maybe they'll pull out of it. But it's just as likely that there are some unhappy campers in the locker room and a shakeup is coming. I'm just waiting for someone to open their mouths, a-la Cammalleri two years ago.

Its exactly that, 82 games seasons are long and even the best teams have some lows... This team is slowly evolving into one of the top team in the league, because of our youth, and that is what Bergevin said all along. All we have to do is compare our team to Toronto or Ottawa or Buffalo to see that we're in good shape...
