Not good enough. If he doesn't get 85 points, then he is clearly in the decline of his career.

Yes, but in order for the team to get back on track on the PP, they've got to do that. Get the puck to the point, crash the nets and look for a rebound. Andrei has the best point shot and it can put Markov back to role of passer, which he's best suited at.

Yep, except Carbo and his excellent coaching staff will put both Tanguay and AK-46 on their respective off-wings.

Maybe Komisarek can smack some sense into them behind the bench?

It's probably already been mentioned, but, I couldn't believe how much trouble he seemed to have in controlling the crossice pass. He couldn't seem to handle it for a onetimer or even just a quick shot.

Good game by him tho & most of the team. A win we needed badly.

True, someone has to teach him to control his aggressiveness, but, the 1 penalty was worth it when he snowplowed Kaleta off the faceoff. It was him wasn't it?

My bad, I just remembered he didn't get a penalty on the play.

Just caught the last few minutes of the Habs/Buffalo game on Canadiens Express, RDS. Appears that RDS is going to have Canadiens Express on the weekends now.

Have a lot of problems with some players but my main problem right now is Plekanec. I understand the Gorges turnover, but Plekanec was right there with Vanek and I understand the kid is strong but still....Koivu would have given him a much harder time than Tomas gave him...If you're not to contribute offensively and pay the price, well might as well work better defensively.

Again, I'm just afraid that he found out in the playoffs last year that paying the price is not his favorite thing.....

I agree. Kovy finally had a good game but is still bashed tonight. Yes, he's been bad but c'mon, he played well tonight and gave a solid effort.

I have full confidence in Price again. I'm more concerned about whether the Habs will clear the zone than thinking whether Price will make the save. I 'know' he'll make the save. I lost that confidence after the Philly series. Took me 23 games, but it's back.

Carey is part of the solution, not part of the problem.

I hope playing Andrei on the point with Markov will become the norm rather than a "once in a blue moon" scenario. IMO, he's the perfect trigger man with his amazing shot. Last night, you could see he was trying to one-time the puck as hard as possible. Once he learns that he only has to concentrate on putting in on net, he'll be ideal.

I also liked his effort to keep the puck in the zone. I also enjoyed the way he slows down the play.

Thanks a lot guys, my not-even-passable french is not good enough to keep up with anything but the play-by-play. I thought it might be Rollie but I haven't seen him before so I couldn't be sure.

He played primarily on the left-wing with Lapierre and his brother, his first goal was him getting the puck after a bad turnover by Buffalo's defensemen inside the zone, moving down the centre-right side of the zone as I assume you saw in the highlights.

I loved what I saw on the powerplay, even though most of his shots didn't hit the net. We haven't had someone willing to bomb it on goal since Streit last year.

Once Sergei took his 3rd dumb penalty of the night, Andrei was moved to the right side, Latendresse on the left (I think) and Lapierre or Plekanec in the middle (I can't remember, but I think it was Lapierre).

It was a good game for him. I wouldn't say it was his best, but it certainly was one of his best ones.

That's part of it, but I'd also like to see him add some variation if he gets another chance on the point. It was great to see someone shooting from back there and he needs to keep doing so, but if he adds in some wristers (which would be as good on a 5 on 3 considering how hard he can wire the puck), a few fake one timers with passes or shots after he changes position a little, he could really be useful.

And with time (given the chance and assuming he works on it) his accuracy will improve, for those who worry. Sheldon Souray was never really a high scoring player until he had been with us a few years (he had one decent year stats wise in juniors, I think). He always had the huge shot but didn't learn how to make it work for him and the team until after the year he missed a lot of games due to his wrist.

Hopefully Andrei on the point is an experiment Carbo gives some time to. At this point, the PP can't get too much worse in terms of productivity and with his strength, speed, shot, passing and puck handling skills, Andrei may yet prove to be a valuable asset in that role.
