The whole slump doesn't start on dec 23rd, but on jan the 4th. When Guy got absolutlty outcoached by Glen Hanlon and we lost 5-1 to the Caps because Carbo never got to use Perezhogin-Bonk-Johnson against Ovechkin.... these guys finished -2 ( while Saku's line was -8). Hanlon took advantage of it and both Semin and Zubrus scored twice againts the Koivu line.
Carbo went nuts... dismenteled his checking line to give more icetime to Gui-Unit, which resulted in a huge slump. The game after Grabo was called up, the team was gastric, Grabo was the best player of the team but got sent back down only to be replaced by Lapierre (the hard worker) in the middle of Kovy and Samy... Perezhogin was put asaide.. Next step, the game in Detroit, lost.. Carbo goes crazy and shows how much he loves himslef declaring "he and Kirk" can't jump on the ice for those lazy arse players, and publically blames his goalies. Next step, he goes nuts and tries to play Streit and Johnson on top lines and scratches good players for Murray and Downey...
Strange stat: Since Carbo decided to fock up his lines... Bring Lats up from fourth to second, which broke the 3rd ( Jan 4th)... the Habs are 6 - 12.
