I realized after game 2 what this would be, I accept what is happening, I don't love it but I accept it, there will be a major house cleaning this summer, so be it, this proud franchise has to get better, bring in some more Canadian an American players, and lets try that for awhile, Price is not ready, but neither is the team in front of him.

Whats going on in front of Price?

In the defensive zone they look like a bunch of retards trying to hump a doorknob.

I still believe though, because I'm incredibly stupid.

I wouldn't miss Kostitsyns either, but I do hope we can get something of value in return for them.

Can't believe how pathetic some fans around here are and tons at the Bell Center are. The team is without half of our top 6 d, our top left winger and our 2nd best center and we are only one goal behind the top seeded team in the East. If Komisarek picks up Ryder and doesn't make a brutal pass in the first period and if Price plays better we are winning this game.

The real question is....

Will both Kostitsyn be invited to play for Belarus at the next Worlds Championship? I mean, Grabovski was invited.....that should be fun to watch!

I hope the fans start chanting Halak's name. Maybe then he'll get the next game just so Price won't go home crying again when the fans get on his case.

You can't give up on young players just like that. This is the strength of Detroit, they have no problem grooming their players even if they have bad seasons. Franzen had 16 points not so long ago. Hudler started of with very weak seasons. Look at the progress of their players. It takes 4 years (at least) to get a real grip of what a player is capable of, sometimes more.

Patience is the key.

The reason we are hurting is a PP that was tops in the NHL 2 years in a row and Gainey didn't want to pay the salaries to keep it...and look what happens, he has 11 UFA's this year and why keep them except for maybe 4 in Tanguay, Komisarek, Koivu and Kovalev...and at a lower price now because of their seasons.

Gainey let players go who had continued success and left it in the the hands of youngsters in Kosty Bro's and Pleks and others who had one good year and inexperience in Weber, O'Byrne, Gorges and D'Ago.

The reason isn't Price.
Good point. All our youngsters sucked ass this year except Lapierre and to some extent Lats. Also people seem to forget Markov and Lang are missing, probably our best most consistent and best players during the season... It's definitely affecting the team on more than one level.

Who cares with the injuries, where is the jump we had earlier?

Montreal's problem is that they let Boston dictate the play and slow it down to their style, we need to stay on top of them with speed and take it to them...we sit back and make turnovers, run around and lose.

We need to play this 3rd like we did the first 10 minutes of the 1st period.

Also why is everyone blaming Andrei Kostitsyn? He's working hard out there and creating many chances on his line, also his penalty was hilarious since he hit Ward's left hand and Ward started shaking his right hand like a *****.

In between periods of the rangers-washington game, one of the announcers said something to the effect, "Thank you Andre Markov for covering all year for Komi and making him look so good."

laps and lats have been horrendous so far...i can point out more good shifts from akost this game alone then all 3 games for those 2 combined...surely these flying frenchmen are exempt from criticism

it looks like most of the opinions here have been derived straight from la presse

and maybe besides for the thornton goal what the hell do people want price to do?

1st was a tip right in front of him

3rd goal he got 2 shots from the right and 2 shots from the left in about 7-8 seconds

boy..i cant imagine this board had thomas been our goalie giving up the crap he has...the weber goal was a 40 ft wrister right between his legs...4 of the 5 goals he has given up this series has been weak..oh sorry because L'Artise scores them they are beautiful shots

we have no lang, markov, schneider and tanguay and even throw in bouillon...the fact that we are still in this game is surprising to me

We're chasing Boston like they're playing f'in keep away. F'IN EMBARRASSING. If we can't get the puck out, don't blame Price. It's unreal how terrible we are in our own end.
Price is the problem

We could play amazing and Price will let in a weakie so all our work goes to waste

*tears streaming down my cheek as I realize the 3rd period is do or die time*

People are ragging on him because he's had a very underwhelming season.

Having a decent game tonight though.
