We'll see what happens in less than 2 weeks in their barn where they're money. And if you don't think the Flames model of play is one the Habs would be better with or could adapt to, you're too trusting in the current team. These current Habs would need way better toughness AND Price standing on his head just to survive 2 rounds. As it stands, there are too many issues here and this is not an overreaction. An overreaction would be to say "We're missing the playoffs and this team needs a new coach, etc." I'm trying to approach this messy situation with reality. And the reality is, the Habs are a middle of the pack playoff team in the East.
Hell, we have 2 games in hand on 9th place Carolina and an 8 point bulge and 9 pts. on the Pens who are 10th. They're a lot closer to us than we are to Boston and teams like the Devils have zoomed past us. The only good news is that said Canes and the Flyers both lost tonight. But the wins by the Habs are the best medicine to keep up in the race. We're 5th now but keep this up in the next few (@FLA, afternoon affairs with L.A. and Boston) and we're looking 8th square in the face. The Habs have been getting worse each game since beating the Caps over 2 weeks ago. Quite literally.
Carbo should've called a f@#$ time out at 3-2
Cube has no business playin in the NHL anymore
Gorges has no business on the PP
Brunet thank god for the mute button, saved me alot of swearing tonight.
luckily we have 10 ufas at the end of the year and we can reshape the roster during the offseason to be speedy but grittier...no use wasting assets on a rent-a-player, lets just go through the motions for the rest of the year reshape the roster for the coming years with the young players coming up and with well selcted ufas. were obviously not a contender for the cup thats for sure, no way in hell we beat wash or boston or nj in a 7-game series just to get to the final.
