I am really worried about he PK. On the PP we get chances but we do not score. In the last 3 yrs we have been in the bottom 15 teams in the league. We have to get better.

I'm very happy they're winning while not being good at everything. That way, they would be able to calmly work all year to put everything together...in May and June.

Watcha' talkin' about?

Tanguay is elite, Kovalev is elite, Markov is elite and Kosty senior has elite finishing potential.

You are talking to Guy Lafleur... just check his username.

They are all fourth liners!

Markov can't hit the net and he's not passing as well when he's on the right point. That's why it's not as good as last year.

The General is without flaw! His 10 pts in 8 games speak for themselves.

Lang has been frustrating me for missing so many chances on the left side of the goalie...leave him on the PK and bring someone else on the PP in his place....

Obviously things are not working so a change there couldn't hurt
That's what I call Absolute Faith

Not worried at all...we dominate with the puck and gain the zone so easily.

Anyway, the PP has to be able to come together at the right time - just remember last year's playoffs if you need any more proof.
I agree... the PP looks good... the goals will come.

i realise we're 6-1-1...it doesnt mean the PP has not taken a nose dive...which is the point of this thread.

thank you.

If your going to aim for the Cup you have to want/try to succeed in every facet of the game

now is the time to get these things right (now as in the regular season). you cant wait until the playoffs to do some experimenting. some of you will say its still early...well 10% of the season is nearly over already. as for playing 1 period a game...i agree with you. I don't want my habs to be the next Senators. One of the biggest problems with the sens is they got into the bad habit of relying on their talent...come playoff time that isn't good enough. you want players to learn good habits now and keep them all season long

being 6-1-1 is more of a reason to want to try a few new things while things are going well. you are more likely to be able to get away with it without affecting your winning...

Tanguay is really as much of a playmaker as goal scorer. Markov? Ditto. A. Kostitsyn might end up as a finisher, not sure yet. Lots of good playmakers but no great finishers beyond Kovalev. Still, this PP should really be top ten.

have you seen the way they move the puck, they will go in eventually, ohh yeah 6-1-1 all with our top line a little slow out of the gate.

I'm not worried. The team is getting chances, they just need to finish them at a better rate and they will. Having said that, the law of averages would say that the habs cannot be #1 for 3 years in a row, even if they look better on paper... but at the end of the day, I still think this will be a top 5 PP unit at the end of the season in terms of efficiency.

Let them find their rhythm. Carbo has too many options for now, it looks like new PP units every game.
When you have Kovalev-S.Kost-A.Kost-Koivu-Lats-Tanguay-Plek-Lang-Higgins-Markov-Hamrlik-Breezer(when he plays)...that's a lot of people for a little 2min.
A lot of talented creative skillful players, they all want to make nice plays, it's in their nature. So it's normal for them to take some time to all get along.

The good thing is that they do create some plays, and sometimes its just phenomenal to watch how they distribute the puck to one another. Eventually it'll unload but there's no reason to address it as a problem as of today.
