Glad to see D'agostini get some ice time, and glad to see him play well. He's fast, he wins battles in the corners, they need to make room for him.
Brisebois looked good, and, unfortunately the defence looked better without O'Byrne. O'Byrne has to get his head together and reach his potential starting with, say, 10 minutes per game in low pressure situations.
I like Muller and Jarvis, but the habs need some assistant coaches:
-who are Xs and Os guys
-who have played as defencemen
-who have played offense current habs style (Muller was all effort and ugly goals).
Effort guys are great, but they bring the same thing Carbonneau does. He needs some variety behind the bench. They should trade assistant coaches with a team looking to get forwards to play defence.
Hmm...Denis Savard could be a good assistant maybe he could teach Latendresse his spin-o-rama?
oh well..i guess it takes practice but he is the only one who has a good enough shot to play the point
I like many wanted him to play on the Point and I think he should continue. Lydman blocked 3 shots at least so Akosty did not miss the nets. However, good shooters like streit and souray find a way to get it that the net. He will get better with time, the potential and talent is there
How do you go from the best PP in the league to one of the worst? Mark Streit is the only factor? I don't think so.
It started in the Boston series last year, so it's clearly not just because of Streit missing. The league has figured it out. Now they need to come up with something new. Point shots and traffic in front of the net seems like the best solution right now. Nothing complicated.
Gotta wonder if Sergei will be in the pressbox next game. Inexcusable how disciplined he was tonight.
