I must be way off cause I thought he was solid tonight and last night he was pretty good except for 2 bad plays.

The guy has 1 assist, 3 shots on goal and was +1 after one period tonight and still people where complaining...I dont get it. Meanwhile I think Gorges as played real bad these 2 games and people think he's great....he keeps giving the puck to the other team so far this season.

Pretty entertaining game at least from a habs standpoint. More than the offense i like the fact Montreal initiated the physical play.

Tanguay in the Eastern conference should be interesting. He finds passing lanes better than anyone on the team.

Good efforts from basically everyone. I still do not like Brisebois however that likely won't change. Also, Lapierre disappointed and frankly if he doesn't play with an edge he is useless. I'd rather have BGL, Chipchura, and Kostopoulos for the fourth line when everyone is healthy.

I agree with you... we definately saw the same game.

what are you smoking? O'Byrne was good tonight and against Buffalo. I remember two plays against Buffalo that seemed bad, but the puck bounced off his stick because the ice quality was bad, that's not a mistake or a bad play. I guess you're one of those who think those are awful plays and hate players for it...

Bouillon will make the team also much more solid on the blue line than Brisebois.

Replacing Brisebois by Bouillon, Dandenault by Higgins and Kostopoulos by Laraque will make this team close to flawless.

Good luck to you too guys... You have some young guys, and future looks promising in Leafs Nation. Be patient and in a few years you'll see the light...

Schenn is definately something.

I don't put too much stock in that game except it gives the guys plenty of confidence. Especially for a guy like Tanguay who might have wondered at one point if he's better than what he showed last year. But tonight it's typical of youngs Leafs team that forget their system to please the crowd. Add the fact that most of them were nervous and that we have a deadly PP that benefitted from a 4 minutes and that's the perfect recipe for a blowout.

Lapierre's hands will still be flawed.

Man does that guy every shoot the puck on a 2 on 1?

Very telling game tonight, it was.
Belarus is an Isles fan, I don't think he got to watch either of our 2 games so that's probably why he was asking since Kosty didn't get any points.

Wow. TB just choked a 3-0 lead and lost 4-3 in OT to Carolina who played last night. Enjoy the next 11 years Vinny, playing for two clueless owner twits who only own the team due to like 100 million $ in loans.

If anything, we backed off. If the Habs wanted to play the 3rd like they did in the 2nd, it could have very well ended up 10-1.

I agree, I dont really like Obyrne but he was pretty solid tonight.. Gorges on the other hand not so great since the begining of the season but hey theres still 80 games to go.

I agree, I thought that O'byrne really had a strong game tonight. Some real good puck movement and good defensive coverage. NO penalties tonight either. Ya the mishap with Halak in the crease, but as a defenceman he has to try to get the puck out of the crease as fast as possible. I'm really liking what he brings tothe table. By the end of the season he will be a horse.

wow we beat the Leafs, start the parade signs.

Relax guys, we played well against a bad team. I still saw some bad habits out there. We didnt battle hard in the defensive zone at times and Halak was great. They could have had 2-3 more goals easily.

I thought Komi is still lagging out there.

It was a great win, but they are one of the worst teams in the NHL. Lets see after Monday, Wednesday and so on, before we say close to flawless.

Give me a break.

To be honest, i think Tanguay Lang SKost would be a killer line

Can someone please post the season opener montage on youtube (the monologue that started with "it will be another long winter in canada") Someone posted the CBC link but it was terrible quality and cut out half way through.
