Tyler Seguin, no question. We need a #1 center.

Its so sad how this team isn't good enough for playoffs, but too good for a lottery pick.

I feel sorry for Boston. Habs are going to take out a lot of frustration on them tomorrow night. I expect a Habs win in regulation time.

Exactly.

Metro is not a top line player. He has no business being on the PP. His shot is weak, and his skating is slow. And Gomez on the half board is not working. Get a shooter like Cammy, S. Kosti, A. Kosti on the half boards.

I am thinking JM is a very unflexable coach.

Pessimism talking, but pretty much every team in the league wants to play against us now.

Martin like to compensate hard work.

Well we can narrow it down.

We know its not Gomez's fault cause he isn't paid to score goals.
We know its not Gainey's fault, he is a God with 5 year plans to lead the habs to the promised land.

hmm, i think its Kovalev and Koivu's fault.

the skill level is just not there to compete with most other nhl teams,to many third and fourth liners in the line up,Dags,Pyatt,white,Laps,Metro ect and our secod line would be beween a second and third line for most nhl clubs.We have no extra cash and are at the cap and we cant just trade the free aents we only aquired a few mont ago.we are in a real bad positi.......................................

Based purely on 'hockey looks' I say Seguin.

Hall looks like the oldest son from Home Improvement.

It's actually a day to be proud of the OTHER teams that were exciting and great. Has nothing to do with the present team. You are celebrating the best moments of the last 100 years.

Yeah, but I wouldn't put a 5-12 pick past this team, but with Markov back, and the achieving players, this team WILL NOT finnish near the bottom.

Clearly Benoit Brunet. The team looked much better with Pedneault in there. How about a facebook group "We want Pedneault back". Oh and the fans are also responsible for it.

So, the fans, Brunet, MAB for hiring himself in this team and french medias. Sums it up pretty much.

As far as tomorrow's game, Habs will take this one and it's not even close. When we expect them to lose,they win. Though I expected them to lose tonight....anyway.

By the time Markov comes back it will be way to late.

Can somebody please link this to the mafia.

Martin in his Press conference saying they have to win the 1-1 battles and play with more determination and have to play more desperate.

The Bruins are in for a beating tomorrow. We need to bounce back big time after two pathetic losses in a row.

BTW

Carbo on RDS said that the Habs players are playing too close to their D and therefore are not able to get out of the zone with speed.

Therien talked about Habs players backing up when opponents enter their zone, in essence playing like defenseman, rather than put pressure on the puck.

All they need is for Mario Tremblay to join them for more insightful analysis.

This I'm a seguin fan as well, we seem to have some decent depth on wing, and it be nice to have three possible players that could carry the team in each position. (Markov/ Seguin/ Price)

Yes, Martin and Carbo have two very different philosophies. Martin hates the stretch pass because he believes that you get caught flat footed in the neutral zone with those kinds of passes. As we saw with Carbo, he was a big believer in it. Either way, the results are still sub par.

well carbo prefered his dmen to throw up hail mary type passes..from our zone to the opposing teams blue line.

therrien is 110% right. we always have to dump the puck in and when we carry it in the offensive zone, the puck is knocked off our stick by their dmen. our players allow opposing forwards to enter the zone as if we were on the pk while 5 on 5. its way too easy.

I miss bouillon ... and thats not a joke.

I miss him hitting someone in the face, from the side , the back , gloves in the opponents mouth ... the fights against someone 3 times his size ...

this team does NOT care about losing.

Of course , all teams care ... bla bla bla ... eklund this, dregger that ... but in the end, there are those who care and those who CARE... and there is a huge difference between the two.

in my book, for the same upside ... bouillon or gill ... you keep the guy that costs you less and ****ING CARES.
