Yup. Montreal and Toronto are disaster teams right now. Vancouver isn't far behind (for now).

Honestly, we should maybe consider selling this deadline. I did not want a rebuild at all, but it would take miracles and every single player playing their best for this team to come close to being good. Gomez is who people said he was. Gionta is a good little player but he's just not good enough to be a strong first liner. He's a perfect second line player.

It's still wayyyyyyyyy early, but at this point we're not even close to being a playoff team.

it's sad to see, if after 1st down by 1 goal, no chance for us to come back?

What happened to the team that came back after 0-5?

This team can't get it done without Markov. Period. That 2-minute 5-on-3 we had in the first was a travesty, and wound up being the turning point in the game.

I think people need to realize the difference between being snakebitten, and not having enough offensive talent to score more then a goal or two.

I think that the two play a pretty similar game although Alfie is a more complete player and better on the forecheck. Heres hoping they continue to connect. Fisher doesn't look to bad with them either. Me made a nice pass to Kovy for his goal.
I'll do my best to answer this from a Sens fan perspective...

I think it's because Kovalev and Alfredsson play the same role on the PP... Kind of quarterbacking it along the boards and near point. They tend to pass effectively and are creative. Kovalev has a better shot, but Alfie is better at winning it off the boards (as you stated yourself), but Ottawa wouldn't want to have two forwards being relied on to be effectively defensively incase a puck got chipped away.

I dunno, but our PP isn't very effective, so you might be on to something.

Ummmm...

Did you not notice that the team we had back then and the team we have now are completely different.

Is it possible that we're both?

We can't blame Price for our losing streak, but I would give next game to Halak hoping that he (and our team) will bounce back.

This will sound weird, but I think they're absolutely going in the right direction. They're improving at evens relative to every year in the past. They're getting more and more of the puck possession game going, early in games. Now they need to work on maintaining it for a full game, and not getting frustrated when they don't get results (which, frankly, it's ridiculous how snakebit they are, it's like there's a curse of some sort).

I don't think the Habs are, in any way, shape, or form, a team that deserves to be on a five-game losing streak.

At this point, what do we have to lose? Another two points? Points SCHMOINTS, I say!

I don't agree about the transition game. Do you even know what your talking about? We are much stronger as a whole coming out of our end this year (with the notable exception of Gill). We have a deep strong forecheck that has resulted in scoring chances.

Puck moving D that are worth having are not available for what we have to give.

Most goals we've given up have come on the PK or after losing a battle along the boards. Neither of these have anything to do with a transition game.

uhhh not only does the habs lose, they play a boring, boring, boring type of game.. thanks JM.. and thanks to Bobby for bringin in the new millionaires of hockey to the team, no we are stuck with those players and bob, will have to give a first round pick with the players we want to get rid of or we will pay 50% of his salary... without Markov this team is NOTHING.

Bob was going well before he did his screwup job, not that we cant win, mister bobby is not understanding we need a freaking 2nd line scorer.. stop playing chips (waive him, he suks) and pacioretty is USELESS right now, send him to the ahl.. we need metropolit because he actually looks like a superstar out there.. also tonight, we didnt see much of an effort, and the more the league knows the only player we have to contain are part of one line (gio-go-cam), and its not like they are unstoppable.. actually they are very stoppable they are tremendous support players nothing more, none of them is able to lead a team offensively, the only one is markov... and i am not sure he could be as efficient with this support cast and coach.

2 more defeats and its gonna be angry-town...

I concur.....the keep blasting it from the point and watch it get blocked was a joke.

Montreal is obviously the former. You look at shots and chances, you look at how many've gone in, you look at how often the guys on the roster usually shoot, and you have your answer.

Cammalleri, for example, does not usually need 24 shots to get a goal. It's plainly ridiculous.

this is what a 56 million dollar puck possession team looks like?

I do see improvements in the team it's just that the results aren't there.

I do feel that the Habs will go a winning streak soon. (Hopefully!)
