Any habs fan that thinks this team will even make the playoff the way there are playing is fooling themselves.
Agreed. During the off season, the player(s) that I wanted most were d-men. I knew our bottom-3 are craptacular. A player like Kalinen would imrpove our top-4. Heck even Phillipe Boucher would be better than anyone we have. As for the forwards we lack grit, something that has not changed in a long time.
Its early in the season to be freaking out, but we have 2 divisional games coming up and i cant see the Habs putting up more than a minimal effort.
We are getting bent over backwards every night.
No forecheck, no pressure, no intensity, just lazy hockey.
It has to come from the coaching staf, it dosent make sense that night after night they have trouble moving the puck out of the zone. Other teams keep up the pressure for minutes at a time, our offense is predicatable and just bad.
