Hard Practice today

From Martin Mcguire, skating practice with no puck for at least 20 minutes (heard on CKAC), interesting...

I'm base it on the fact that you never hear that they have these kinds of drills.
I hear that Washington had a practice with no puck.. but never hear stuff like this about Carbo... I don't doubt that he does some tough drills but I never hear that he does drills like this.

So I base it soley on the reports..

Well, after that either it works, or the players hate you and you lose your job...

Ok, thats fine. Im just saying that because a lot of times we have no clue what goes on in practice, drills wise. They can do this all the time, but it only gets mentioned once. Its like people who say Koivu isnt a good captain because he isn;t vocal in the room. How the hell do we know what is said in the room you know?

Than the players are in the wrong job, and they clearly think they aren't doing anything wrong...

Which they are. My opinion anyway.

Yeah I understand. I base it on reports like habsinsideout.com, they mention what goes on during practice.. and you never hear these kinds of things.

As for the Koivu statement, I agree with you completly. I don't understand how people know if he isn't vocal in the room.

The players should have the right to force Carbo to do a 20 minutes drill without puck himself.

20Minutes of practice with no pucks. That's gonna solve the defensive mess we're in.

If it is 20 consecutive minutes of hard skating drills, that is a grueling work out.

20 minutes is a joke. My bantam CC kid does it for 60 minutes.

It's good.

Next step should be the wall. They need it 'cause they can't hit. And they're afraid to get hit.

Hmmm... that's nice but I hope they worked on being able to beat a 2-man forecheck without just wrapping the puck around the boards, on puck retrieval when they have to dump and chase, on creating chances 5-on-5 in the offensive zone, and on a new PP strategy now that teams are taking away Schneider at the point.

Because skating is fine, but if they don't improve the other aforementioned areas, the results won't change all that much.

not a single player that left the habs have said anything positive about Carbo... they all say the same thing "he never communicates with us"!

The defensive mess is clearly a coaching incompetence!

Here's a better idea.
Bench Breezer and give a couple reverse slaps to Price's face.

Did they talk about actually sticking up for teammates at all? I'm curious.

Gaustad mashes Kovalev, Paille runs over Price and nothing. I can understand when the score is 0-0 you want to keep your head, but when the score is 3-0, maybe?

They were probably going all out for 20 minutes. Playing hockey requires a lot of cardio and muscle endurance. I don't think Carbonneau was giving them free skate for 20.

I hope Carbo also subjected himself to the 20 minutes of bag skate.

When teams see the Habs on their upcoming schedule, they breathe a sigh of relief and know they don't have to worry about getting tossed around. Its been like that for the better part of 10 years now, and has only gotten worse since Souray and Rivet left.

Remember Gilmour when Theo was run? That's how you play hockey.

It's a sign that Carbo is starting to lose his players.

You clearly see that during the games, they don't put the maximum and it's a sign. It's the sign of a team that doesn't buy the system anymore.
