Some people in Mtl are just bitter, because now its boring time for sports until October.
There is only 1 reason why we lost to Philly..Goaltending. Anybody that saw Dallas-SJ game yesterday will know what i mean by that, THAT was solid goaltending.

We touched about 10000posts in this serie and our goalies were weak on most goals. If our shots that hit the posts go in, and Price plays like he did vs Boston, then we sweep Philly and those same people criticizing would be talking about beating Pittsburgh in 6.

Kovalev denies dressing room problems:

http://www.rds.ca/canadien/chroniques/251182.html

Durant son point de presse, Kovalev a dû répondre à une question portant sur ses relations avec Saku Koivu. Selon un quotidien montréalais, le vestiaire du Canadien serait devenu trop petit pour les deux vedettes de l'équipe.

"C'est une autre rumeur, a-t-il dit en rigolant. C'est quelqu'un qui cherche à allumer un incendie. Je me demande pourquoi."

Translation:

During his interview, Kovalev had to answer a question on his relationship with Saku Koivu. A Montreal newspaper reported that the Canadiens dressing room might be too small for the team's two stars.

"It's another rumour," he answered, chuckling. "It's someone looking to start a fire. I ask myself why."

I'm sick and tired of the CKAC and La presse crap.

We had an amazing season, above all expectations and they cant wait one ****ing day after the elimination of the team before they start pissing all over Koivu and Kovalev again. They are just a bunch of amateurs.... Next year if there are some idiots who riot again I'll be cool with it if they just keep it around those 2 places. A bunch of idiots auto canceling each other. Win win...

LMAO

I guess it was Koivu's fault that Price gave up 1 or 2 weak goals a night.

i agree with your statement, but I doubt Koivu even hears those comments, i doubt any of his friends are Jean Guy's feeding him the rumors. Briere on the other would of had to deal with those comments first hand.

LaPresse crap ? follow that link ; there are 11 journalists that are making their post season comments . No one is blaming your little hero . In reality , they are most of them , very positive about the season .

Curiosly , we don't read anything about their comments here .

"CKAC" blames Koivu. CKAC is like 20 radio guys. Because you hear 2 of them saying that does not mean anything other than 2 guys discussing.

Everything was just fine for 82 games between Saku and Kovy.

Kovy is right. There is no story here.

Keep Koivu on one line and Kovy on the other top lines and everything is cool.

Journalists just want to sell papers and air time again.

I read those comments in La Presse. The broadcast media are far more incendiary than les journaux, and les ânes who bray on 110% are the worst of the worst. Even that old reprobate Réjean Tremblay has been won over by Alex Kovalev because of that player's kindness to unfortunate children.

I don't think they are all stupid.... but clearly Bergeron and Gagnon have no clue what they are talking about.

True. With so many journalists covering the Habs, you're bound to have really bad ones. The also have a lot of very good scribes covering them. It's all a question of who some people choose to waste their time listening to...

To summarize,no one who hasn't even been in a Cup Final shouldn't talk.Bergeron saying that Koivu is a loser is sadly ironic.

+1.

Every time one french speaking sports personnality makes one comment people don't like, some people here assume every french speaking individual in Quebec agrees with him. The ridiculous overreactions and generalizations on this board are extremely tiring.

We're all Habs fans. We all want the team to win. Though not everyone can agree. Just chill out people. If you don't like what you read, then stop reading. Or listening.

My everlasting image of Bergeron is him trying to get something out of Sundin on the bench and Sundin sitting there smirking like I give a frosty whatever.

You have to earn the right to call a player or coach a loser and Bergeron most certainly has not done that

What's the expression in english? It takes one to recognize one....

I personnally don't understand the hatred towards Koivu for one reason. He may be one of the few that actually played great in these playoffs. And then the same people who bashes Koivu, in the same breath, keep saying how we have a good little team but for the regular season only, that there's no warriors on that team.....So to improve our team, you substract the only warrior we have???

It would really suck for Koivu to leave or be moved. He had to endure the bad lineups we had all these years and now that there's signs of life, you ship him elsewhere? Maybe if it was in a great place he wouldn't mind, let's say Minnesota.

But he's far from being the problem. The funniest thing is, I'm wondering how many years in a row now that they've been saying something along the lines of : "One of Kovy or Koivu will be gone before the start of next season". I'm pretty sure we heard that before...and still they're are still here.

Listen...François Gagnon used to be the best. But since the Kovalev story last season he's been on a vendetta against Kovalev. He wanted to trade him at the deadline for crying out loud. Now the season is barely over that he starts all over gain? C'est pas parceque' c'est d'la merde Québécoise que c'est pas d'la merde sacrament.

And *** is the thing about everyone thinking every Québécois agrees with what's in the media? Are you paranoid? If I say La Presse and CKAC are letting out crap it means I think all Québécois are like that? Give me a break...

If they can crap on Koivu and Kovalev why should they be immune to the same treatment? If you want to go soak in a pile of crap...then fine. But I wont.

If you never ask for accountability and professionalism you'll never get it.
