Spezza scored a beauty, but Ruutu and vermette missed the net. Tanguay and markov scored BS backhander goals (which why I hate shootouts - goalies have a 20% chance of making the save. It's a bogus way to get points). Hartsburg could have put Brendan Bell in there, or heatley. You have to think that heatley has a 50% or better chance of scoring than Vermette.
You have this backward, players score about 25% of the time and goalies make the save 75% of the time. As for your comment about Ruutu and Vermette shooting it wide, so did Kovalev. Should the Habs never use him in a shootout again? I'd rather the player try for the move then come in straight and shoot it at the goalie's pad like Alfie did. I agree Vermette is not a great choice for the shootout these days, though.

In terms of your other comment on fans favouring regular season wins, why wouldn't they??? there are 82 games and only 4 rounds in the playoffs. Only one team wins the cup. There is more fun in watching good games than waiting around for the team to win the cup. I think 90% of fans hjust want to grab a beer on saturday night and see the home team win. Playoffs are a crap shoot, exciting as they are.
I said the opposite. People claim they would sacrifice a few regular season wins, they wouldn't enjoy it but they'd be happy in the long run if it meant the team was learning to play hockey more conducive to playoff success.

Obviously a 6 game losing streak and sitting at the bottom of the Conference is not something any fan wished for.

And you don't think Montreal is sucking? They've played a full 60 mins maybe 4 times yet they still have 24 points.
Weird, i had a feeling i was really talking to the guy in your avatar

Consider that our best 3 forwards are better than your 3 best players, i'd say it's pretty even up front. The only difference is that you have Price and Markov, but yet Auld and Kuba are doing the same job. I check the stats and i see guys like Higgins and Lang who are stepping up for your team. Otherwise, it's about the same. Tough, we have more slumping players (Fisher, Vermette, Kelly, even Spezza)

Habs have another advantage for now. They went to a youth transition already. Ottawa is about to do the same with Foligno, Zubov, Winchester, Bass, Picard, Lee, Elliott... Then another one in 2-3 years with Karlsson, Wiercioch, Regin, O'brien, Caporusso, Petersson.... I'm up for that.

Funny because of my friends at my own hockey game told me that the Habs totally dominated the second period... I said you sure? I tought they had 3 shots. Shows you how blind Habs fans are, they didn't even had a scoring chance in that period...

Sens fans are the same way. In fact every teams fans are, when I watch games on center ice and read through teams GDT, I always wonder what some fans are watching.

That probably explains why the Sens got 5 PPs against one for the Habs.

Do you post about anything else but the Habs not being as good as their fans think they are? I swear, everything I read from you is about the Habs. You've have some kind of Habhate fetish.

It's a free world though and more importantly, it's your teams board. But man, how about looking at last night's game and realizing that the Sens had this game wrapped and they failed to close the deal. Plain and simple...Sens were up 2-1, had a 4-3PP for almost a full 2 mins in OT AND had an opportunity to win the shootout, but they didn't. Sure, the Habs came in and stole an extra point on the road and the Sens probably deserved a better fate, but they still made mistakes to give the game away. I know you like analyzing everything Hab related, ever try to do the same with your own team?

Why do you feel the need to perpetuate a lie?
Zuboy played 9:48, Foligno 9:22.
Bass did play a bit less than 6 minutes.

What's wrong with that? I have one...

I only hate 2 kinds of people: Habs fans and people who use the word "urban".

Blablablablabla... Are you gonna cry or what? Another example of what is a Habs fan : overproud and succeptible. I have like 2500 post, maybe 60-70 are about the Habs, mostly after games with the Habs. When it is over, i don't care much about them. It's hard to avoid Habmania living in Montreal but i can. The only thing i hate is the blinded fanatism some Habs fans have. Don't tell me it's like that everywhere. The only pride some quebecers seem to have is "les Canadiens", it is alarmous IMO. Don't tell me you know better, i live there, you don't, i know hundreds of Habs fan and see them everyday. 2 weeks ago, i was at the movies with my wife and i saw a guy who was alone. He had a Habs hat, a Habs t-shirt, a Habs coat and maybe more... I felt kinda bad for the guy... They are a lot of people here who only live for the Habs, that's serious about the social feeling of faintness of the Quebec society and the lack of culture.

So, please put me on ignore and stop wasting my time. I could care less of your girly feelings. Are you that cat in your avatar? Please don't commit suicide because i said something against the "sacred flannelle"... I tought you were a good poster at first but i know you better now, can't accept criticism, too bad.

PS : About game yesterday, everyone knows that this game should have ended 3-2 in regulation for Ottawa. The Volchenkov's goal was good and even some Habs fan are not blind enough to not recognize it. So, you guys run out with an undeserved victory. Aight, but justice will come the other way someday.

hahaha, you should watch your mouth... things can turn around quickly and luck doesn't stay forever. IMO, Habs are overated and it will eventually show anytime soon.

We only talk about them when we are playing against them... or when we can laugh about Habs fans...

Not necessarily.

When a goal gets allowed instead of being disallowed, it changes the entire tone of the game.

Maybe Ottawa would have won 5-1.

Maybe the Habs would have come back sooner and won in regulation.

It's pointless to assume.

It's true and i agree, i just didn't want to talk about it since my post was already too long... but you did. I'm still pretty sure the Sens deserved the win badly and would have won it with that goal.
