Coverage will come to get D'Ago in the second half of the season. That's where we'll see if he's a Brian Savage (Who got murdered once he got covered) or a Mike Bossy (Who for a decade evaded all coverage that was attempted on him)

Brisebois has been ok in the offensive zone and at the point but terrible in his own zone, but that's always been his game. He is unbelievably weak along the boards, like embarrassingly weak. Next game I want everyone to watch him play down low and behind the net and then come back and tell me what you think.

What I like about D'agostini is that he is always moving and getting to spots were he will be open for a shot.Keep it up

Truer words were never spoken.

The only hope for Brisbois on this team is as a spare forward/PP specialist. He sucks as a defenceman. He's better? Just shows how bad he was - he's still terrible.

He's actually really good in his zone.

I'd say above average for a third pairing guy that has to play 2nd pairing minutes. Anyway, the strength of his game is moving the puck and he still does that very well.

Anyway, doesn't matter, just doing your job without being the next OMGZ superstar on the farm club will never impress the 15 year old GM contingent here.

Breezer has been one of our most steady D, OVERALL this year. And this coming from a guy that has despised him...especially after he left the team for a little holiday to Paris one season

Dagostini has been fantastic. The euro-fluffs like Pleks and the Kost twins should watch and learn. It's all about going to the scoring areas....which can hurt sometimes.....that makes a goal scorer a success...none of this gain the blue line and do that stupid chickenbleep hook turn and try to look for an open guy to do the real work.....this guy takes the puck to the net....and hangs out in the slot where it counts.

Is BriseB doing better the last half dozen games?
4 points in his last 6 GP / considering that he has 7pts for the season. And he has 11pts for each of the past 2 seasons.

He's a 3rd line D-man, 37 yrs old and came back to the habs for Cheap... We have outr moneys worth.

So don't hate appreciate.

D'ago well he is certainly proving himself at present.

Mind you this certainly should be 2 different threads.
