Oh no. Weber was terrible last night. MAB played better in this game. Gorge has a bad game.

Glad I missed that game.

P.S.
Carbo wasn't so bad after all.
Gainey and Martin did way worse so far.
They will finish the season with a freaking regulation win.
This is just **ing ridiculous.

OK now, back to reality, Markov it's in February AND we have no idea if that is still true AND we have no idea what effect this injury will have on him.

AK keeping up the effort is indeed important. But the toughest still needs to happen for him, he needs to score. While I was down on the org. for sending SK in Hamilton in the first place, he doesn't do what's necessary to deserve being called up, even moreso making a difference.

At this point, if you need a scorer and hope he'll be able to translate that in the NHL, which I doubt, you have to call Mathieu Darche up. Not SK. Not yet.

... I was playing hockey tonight, didn't watch the game... but what the hell happened to Lats and Laps? 5 and 6 minutes? were they THAT horrible? I guess Laps thinks he belongs to the elite now that he got some 2nd line icetime?...

Did Andrei pee on Martin's cereals? FFS, play him like the talented player he is!

That's unfair. They have played only 17 games and half of their regular Ds squad are out. Laisser la chance au coureurs.

Nitty was good, but he didnt have to be amazing except for some rare moments.

The lightning played a good road game. They played a style which dared the habs to play dump and chase. By doing this, the cammalleri line was stymied because they love to work off the transition. Its no wonder that the metro line was creating the most chances because they live off the dump and chase.

Price was okay. He's playing like a typical goalie in development where he shows flashes of brilliance, and other flashes of avoidable mistakes. Nitty was sharper overall.

Andrei Kostitsyn had his best game of the year, I thought. My guess is that we will see some line shuffling in regards to kost playing a bigger role next game.

yeah very good points, of course im thinking in the best case scenarios.

I think in Markov's case its just important for him to heal properly and get rushed in, it will take a few games but he will be back. (again, hopeful thinking)

I totally agree on the mistake of sending SK down, Darche could be a good option but at this point we cant ride on hope (that Darche translates into that scorer in the NHL), neither could Sergei but AK has always reacted well when playing with his brother. Maybe calling him up and seeing how AK- Pleks - SK reacts. This could be the second line we are missing.

Oh, and I think I'll just stop reading those PGT after a loss...

Everyone getting on Gomez's back... yeah right.

If not for Cammy, Gomez and Gionta, there would be nothing to look forward to on this team.

People also have to realize that without Markov, this team just isn't the same.

Players development is what will cost Gainey his job in the next weeks/months/years, and unfortunately, you just can't blame him 100% for this.

I'm frustrated.
I'm watching them play since 1975 and I've never seen such a crappy start. 1 freaking win in regulation in 17 games is beyond pathetic.

I know they lost their best D but still. It shows you that the team has virtually no depth or character.

It's really depressing.

I feel like breaking something...or someone.

I guess the argument is that Gomez isn't a first line center. How many chances does he create each shift. I say he is and Gainey had a great lineup before Markov went down and several players decided to suck balls.

I would certainly hope more qualified defensemen would make our team better considering only 2 bottom-dwellers have allowed more goals than us so far.

So what if they managed to turn it on in the last 10 mins of the third, that doesn't make up for the 40-50 mins before that.

yeah i thought they both made amazing plays/dekes but went 1 too many in each case. Still, they kept the cycle going for longer than we are used to and as for sending the puck back to the blueline....would you do that these days? That's a recipe for a 3 on 1 against us. I think a part of it is that they must be getting way too tired (literally) of having to be relied upon so much. man will we ever have to convert against calgary.

That's what happens when you get no support.

I think we're starting to see why Gainey fired Lever. Our players' development is inexistant. Boucher's hiring is fortunate, another wave of prospects (Subban, Kristo, Avtsyn, Leblanc) are coming shortly. Hopefully Boucher will succeed where Lever failed with Perezhogin, Higgins, Carle(still a work in progress though) and cie.

I didn't watch the whole game but I think Lapierre and Latendresse were being lazy defensively and not very efficient offensively. So JM benched them on the 3rd.

As for L'Antichambre. I only watch the first 5min (I usually don't watch these clowns). But if I had to guess, they probably said JM didn't give those Frenchies enough chances or being more patient.
