Psychanalyzing Price for his body language has always struck me as stupid. You have no idea if he said anything to Spacek while he gave him that stare.

Price's body language is not the problem. Stinking at even-strength is the problem. A system that doesn't 40-shot barrages, regardless of goaltender, is the problem.

Blaming Price is the easiest thing to do here. They rather blame the young kid that the 22 guys in front of him failing to score game after game.

This is friggin pathetic. Waive Lapierre and Send Pacs to the minors ASAP.

Lapierre sucked without his ferry friend Latendresse and has sucked even worse since he left.

Price his not to blame for this loss has we were badly outshot and outchanced again.

Either Matin is an idiot or we simply do not have the players to play the preffered system.

Either way Gainey has got to be responsible for this lack of depth.

Halak to the rescue again.
Fantastic suggestion

The Leafs winning is a good thing, btw... just enough to give the Bruins a crappy pick

Too bad Halak didn't play and experience the poor D and poor O the Habs put up. Then you'd see your weird reason fail to work.

why all the doom and gloom?

Caps are a very good team, we are a very mediocre team... it is what it is.

We need to get our points, as often as possible, from the other bottom dwellers, and that way we can sneak into the playoffs and cross our fingers for some games in the 2nd round... that's the team we have folks, no sense getting all torn up about it.

but man oh man would it be nice to see a habs roster loaded up the way the caps are. it's long overdue, but this is a new decade and we can't possibly be as bad as we were this past decade, can we???

The feeling you have would be wrong on both accounts. A lot of believe that both goalies are good, and it does nothing to bash one over the other.

We've SO many problems above and beyond the goalies. This team has a lot more talent than it shows, a lot more. The problem is that we don't have the depth to deal with injuries to our top 6, however we have been unlucky once again when Sergei, and Andrei both go down at the same time as Pacioretty had gone in a downward spiral and D'Ags continues to suck balls.

The team is good, but is missing still another top 6 forward for depth.

Imagine a lineup like this for instance:

Gionta-Gomez-Pouliot
Cammy-Pleks-Akost
Big Body-Metro-Skost
White-Lappy-Moen

We are missing a big top 6 forward who can go from line 3 to top line if needed. No, where do we get that forward?

Price facing 43 shots against Washington and ends with a .907 SV%. I'd say he had a stellar game being shelled like that.

Yup we did a pretty decent job against one of the top teams, also caps have only lost 3 times in regulation at home..
Frustrating that Montreal still can't keep intensity for full games. When we scored to make it 3-2 we found some jump in our game but by then it was too late..

I agree somewhat. It's not like we lost this game to this year's Carolina Hurricanes.


The main problem is there aren't guys there stepping up (offensively) when key people go down. Guys like D'Ago and Patches just aren't taking advantage of the opportunities that have been given to them.

Given how injury prone we've been this year, we probably still need a Top 6 forward... we already have six such forwards but they rarely seem to be healthy all at the same time...

Sorry to say, but we need another one of those big bodies, Patches is not that guy yet, unfortunately, but that's the truth

He would enjoy it much better with competent Dmen in front of him.

The capitals hit habs a lot. Why Laraque is in the line-up, the most useless player i have ever seen. Our team is weak, that angry me... I hate that, we need more heart, more Québécois.

Or his inane mantra of special teams and goaltending, which is basically admitting his team stinks 5-on-5. Saying that special teams and goaltending decide games is basically code for "hang on for dear life, hope our goalie saves our ***** and we score on the power play".

The Habs are the weakest team in the league in the first period, have a weak five-on-five scheme (collapsing defense, clear up the boards, no transition, concede every zone), have the worst penalty differential in the league by far, and do not perform to the level their talent level would suggest.

Explain to me again why I'm supposed to feel this is a well-coached team?
lol cuz coaching's not the problem. Washington is just the better team. Our play stabilized as expected with Gio and Hammer's return and we've matched our opposition shot for shot chance for chance. Miller even had to bail Buffalo against us. I was actually curious to see what you had to say but you were quiet in the past 3 games. Anyweyz, if anything's it's Plek's dip in performance coupled with the Kostitsyn bros' injury that's affecting goal production.

We'll look good against FLA. Washington's just a different animal. So is Jersey.

Go to Habsinsideout and listen to Gainey. He is happy with the goaltending and the special teams, other than that he doesn't sound to impressed. He said we are at the place in the division because of how we have played overall and that we will be battling with 7 teams for the last 3 playoff spots.

Also listen about Halak, he talks highly of him and the goalies together, but he has said Halak has played well and has helped himself look good to other teams out there to get a chance at being the #1...the #1 here is Price and Halak will be dealt.

Well, then, we should start rooting against Carolina and particularly against Anaheim, which is in the West conference.

WOW dude, you really know hockey.....give up 40-50 shots on most nights and win only because of a great goaltender (Price or Halak). Lose after giving up 40+ shots and its Prices fault. Bravo dude Bravo......THERE ARE 5 OTHER PLAYERS ON THE ICE . They are just as accountable as the goalie.
