After defending him, I'm really starting to wonder if Martin is the right man for the job..

But, I'd imagine it's way too early to fire him.

Probably. I'm not impressed with how JM is having them play right now.

This team is completely drained. When you play with little energy you tend to miss goals that would've been in otherwise, exactly what happened tonight.

Yeahhhhhh okay! We should have traded him when he had some value. Case has been rested.
No, Sergei was called up to put a warm body in a top 6 position. Besides, Sergei we have nobody good enough for the top 6, especially when Gionta is injured.

We terribly lack secondary scoring.

1 line creating offense. They're not going to bury 3 per game. We ain't gonna win unless the goalie steals it.

Trust me, Gainey will not be permitted to fire another coach.

Gainey is the first out the door.

The guys who were supposed to be secondary scorers are on IR and in Minnesota.

Lats was the only young Habs player to never see Hamilton. At the very worst he would get benched a game or 2 and then be inserted back in the line-up. He got more chances than anybody else on this team but screwed them all up, and now he's acting like a ****ing baby and blaming everyone else than himself. His honeymoon with Minnesota will be a short one if he doesn't grow up because as soon as he gets comfortable there he'll be good ol' Lats again, just like Mr. September was always good at training camp for the Habs and always sucked once the season started.

He never showed enough talent, grit or determination to get more (top 2 lines, PP time) than he got in Montreal, good riddance.

This team is finding ways to lose looks a lot like last year when we went through that horrible slide only this time we don't have a nice cushion of points to fall back on.

The team needs a big wake-up call.

I think that we need to make a significant trade, just to see if we can breath some new life into this team.

They're probably too afraid to take a penalty.

Gomez looks like Kovalev did two years ago. A lot of skating that makes appearance of actually doing something productive.

disagree. The same way Pleky was bad last year cuz his linemates weren't helping, SK is playing smart hockey and making some good plays (sometimes his vision is better than who he's playing with..dago I guess), but that line just can't seem to put it in. The only place goals are coming from are his bro and Cammy. It's not like the rest of the team is lighting it up. I'm glad SK is with the team again, but for the love of god, the whole team needs to bury their chances! Story of the season - missed opportunities and the other team having a golden touch.

This.

White should be called ASAP and take his roster spot.

Lately, it seems all coaches in Montréal are prone to the same stupid mistakes.

However, not to start a language debate, but a coach that must speak both languages really thins out the pool for a coach.

Thank god the East is so bad. One 7-3 or 8-2 run and suddenly we're among the better teams.

The problem is thinking that. He didn't screw up, he was bumped down mostly because guys came back from injury or, with JM, because he didn't fit in the coach's vision and the coach was unwilling to adapt.

Lats was a productive forward for the Habs. His usual self, should JM be able to use it properly, would be a huge asset to this punchless team.

Oh I agree, but he still made a nice play on Kostitsyn's goal, and created some chances and had some decent shots on net. Eh, nothing exceptional, but you could pick about any of his last 10 games to bash him other than this one. He played a little bit better tonight than usual.
