The whole team is pretty much playing like garbage (outside of Halak). The only way this team seems to win anymore is if Halak stands on his head. It's weird because I think this is a decent team but they don't play like one. Is it coaching? Is it the players? Is it chemistry? What the **** is the problem?

Terrible coaching and lack of a true first line center that can carry a line or make his linemates better.

The Canadiens lost, get over it. They did win the last four without a 'big centreman' and with Guy Carbonneau as coach.

Does this mean that the Canadiens have no problems? No! The Canadiens need to stop being such babies and play hockey for 60 minutes.

The main problem of this team is not the coach or the system (which i cannot stand), not the the defensive braincramps nor lack of a big center. MENTAL TOUGHNESS is the problem. They play like Kings in the first but you knew that if they wouldnt score and if the Sabres would somehow score first, it would go downhill from there.

The Habs were dominating Buffalo and couldn't buy a goal, then Roy scored the first one and the team just quit. Nobody did anything from that point on.

Maybe I need to look at the play again, but I thought it was a good hockey hit on Kovalev. I certainly wouldn't mind a few of our guys landing such punishment on the opposition.

Its funny but yesterday during that game i was thinking that the team didnt need a trade but they missed Lang size presence, Tanguay's elite skills, Latendresse work in the corners and S.Kost's playmaking skills...

I watched the game with a Leaf fan...I didn't cry that night, but it was damn close.

I hear ya Cap, I'm not the crying type either. But I was pretty close to tears after watching that game.

Anyway, last night was pretty sad.

We started great, then were deflated quite fast. It was over at 3-0 for sure.

I have no idea why we're so fragile. When we lose, we lose BAD.

I'm not very confident this will even be on the horizon.

One day we beat San Jose, the next we lose to a team fighting for a spot. I can't think of one "must-win" game that we have won this year.

We lost to Boston when it counted, we lost to Pittsburgh when it counted, and now we lost to Buffalo when it counted - the list goes on and on.

Yeah, just ignore that in order to win those 4 games we needed Halak to post Hall-of-Fame numbers.

The baffling part is that our peasant of a coach thought we played great over those 4 games.

Why no one went after Paille after he ran Price, is beyond me...5 guys on the ice, and nothing... Price doesn't seem to be able to catch a break...
