Yes, Price is very unlucky with pucks coming from behind the net.

Grabovski played the best game of his career in the NHL thus far?

Is Begin healthy yet? I'd ****ing love to see him, Laps and O'Byrne vs. the Bruins and Smolinski in the stands with Brisebois.

Sloppy game. Bad passing , players falling for no reason ...I think we are lucky to get a point
I wouldn't mind Kosto against the Bruins because you can expect the rough stuff from the Bruins goon squad (Chara).Smoke and Brisebois should sit for Lapierre and O'Byrne though.....

Carbo, you woudlnt even have a point if it werent for Grabs and Sergei, and guess what, you might of had 2 if you would of used them in the SO, you deserve to lose.
Grabovsky was useless apart from his goal, I think I explained it multiple times.

Sergei, I guess he must not be good on shootouts, they DO practise it, so you give your best guys the first shot, points are too important for whims.

I stated in the GDT that the Habs have a level that the Blues cannot reach. They decided to play at that level for only 20 minutes or so and proved that they were the better team. However they lost because they only played twenty minutes. You cannot do that against any team in the league, no matter how piss poor their record. As for the play of the team, Grabs and Kosty jr. played very well. The first line had a dreadful game and the Koivu line played an average game. Smolinski was his usual bad self while Breisbois should be sat for O'Byrne. Moreover, there were too many bad passes, broken sticks, and many players falling down. A new stick manufacturer needs to be looked at, and a skate sharpening machine is needed.

I hope the lineup looks something like this come Thursday:

Kostitsyn-Plekanec-Kovalev
Latandresse-Koivu-Ryder (do not break up the 2nd and 3rd lines)
Higgins-Grabovski (interesting to see him play againts Chara )-Kostitsyn Jr.
Kostopolous-Lapierre-Streit

Begin would look a lot better on the fourth line than Smokes.

Komi-Markov
Hamrlik-O'Byrne
Georges-Bouillion

Some of you are blinded by his "flashiness" and the fact that he is a rookie.
How about you watch the game on Canadien Express and see that Grabovski was the spark plug who got us one point and created many chances with his speed and HANDS. He played a great game yet people are still trying to bash him.

The Habs played a decent game. Don't know why so many are saying it was horrible! Mediocre second period and a bad goal by Halak and that's the game. What can you do. Gotta give credit to the Blues which were solid defensively. It doesn't matter how low they are in the standings they can still win form time to time.

I call BS on that. He was our most dangerous forward tonight.

Dress Smolinski ahead of Grabovsky, much more useful on PK and faceoffs, plus Boston will knock Grabovsky on his ass all night, they have a grinding scrappy team.

You're joking right? You're not trying to tell us that Lapierre is more talented then Grabovski are you?
Lapierre is a north South Checker with decent speed and xero hockey sense, I have never seen him make a pass nor score a goal that wasn't given to him on a silver plater (empty net). Please don't compare Grabovski to Lapierre as they are much different players. Lapierre is at best a third liner but should be limited to forth line duties on this team as Koivu Plekanec and Grabovski are better hockey players. You may see Lapierre replace Smolinski or Kostopoulos on Thursday but if you ask me Streit is looking a bit worn out and couls use the rest. He made more mistakes then Smolinski tonight.

Grabovski gives Montreal a scoring third line, replacing him with Lapierre would totally KILL that line.

Oh man, I'm really getting tired of this...Price is the future, everything else does not matter. OK, Price is the future, so what? I'm just telling you that Price has allowed some soft goals as well and he has had some bad games. Halak was not good tonight at all but it does not change anything at all in my mind. They both need to fight for the #1 spot. I think Price will win, but the competition should be there, and nobody should be handed anything on a silver plate

Watch the game and every time he has the puck, don't forget to take the rose coloured glasses off.

If I were Grabo and benched next game, I'm taking the first flight out of the country.

Just like Jay McKee did when Grabovski drew the penalty on him. Great idea.
