Just steadily adding points despite the injury woes...

Every team goes through highs and lows, but I like that ours is not experiencing high highs or low lows so far. They're not letting themselves getting carried away by big wins leading to a series of losses they can't get out of for weeks like the past few seasons.
5 wins actually at the beginning of the season, but you are right about the losses, 3 in a row.

And yeah, they've been pretty consistent, when we realize they've had 10 regulation losses in almost 40 games. That's one out of every 4 games. Also, they're now up to their 6th sequence of two wins or more. They lose one or two and they immediately start a new win sequence. That to me, like it seems to you, is consistency, as a team.

I still can't understand people complaining and being negative about the Habs, when we have two more games left till half of the season and we are already at half the points we finished with last season. The team has had many injuries and the team has had some growing pains, but I tend to believe Carbo gets his team into gear in the second half of the season, and if this happens, we should definitely finish with more points than we did last season. Some people don't realize we had our 11th regulation time loss at our 29th game last season, and we are now up to our 38th and still haven't had that 11th regulation loss.


Glad to see that at least some see it for how it is.

Well, to be fair, they don't always play bad against bottom feeders, they've had some good games.

I like the way some guys on RDS are calling our 3rd line "la ligne at Maxim et Guillaume"

Nah this game totally has that vibe. We will either **** the bed or play down to the Leafs level and squeak one out. I don't get as worked up about the Leafs now that they know they're brutal, but I still hate that team and hate losing to them.

On the other hand, we are due to blow somebody out. The last time we won by 4 or more goals was probably the Ranger game at home, before that, hell probably the Phoenix game.

I can see that happening with Guillaume fanning on the pass but still leads to the GWG

What's the point of calling up Weber and not letting him play for a week... come on, Carbo.

Let's see Weber!!! The Habs can't be bothered showing up against bottom-feeder teams anyway. Worst case scenario we lose by an extra goal.

I don't know what caused the feud between SKost and Grabs, but I think that's the least of Grab's worries. I think the whole team's gonna remember the vicious butt-end in Price's crotch.

Who cares about Grabovski man...just win the game, they can settle score's at another time

It's like when we play Boston and the whole game is about Lucic, it always takes away from the Habs game

Beat them up on the scoreboard first, then take care of the other stuff later

it says Weber might play, that Carboneau could use 7 D and Begin might get left out, but they don't seem to sure...

Brisebois was a horror show last night. Just give Weber a game, Carbo. Nevermind this 7 D stuff.
