Could we please get a coach that will let them play run and gun like in the first period. In the second we have a lead idiot Martin tells them to sit on it. We lose. He didn't even play BGL in the third when the game was out of hand ! I would love a Torts type coach that shows he is actually breathing !
I think the Habs should call up Ryan White and put him in BGL's spot on the 4th line. If JM doesn't trust BGL to give him any more than 5 minutes TOI/G and if BGL isn't fighting, then we really should call up someone who adds some value.
I really liked the sandpaper and work ethic that White brought to the team earlier in the season. He's not going to make or break the Habs but he will certainly be a positive addition to the current lineup.
The olypic break can't come fast enough. Lots need to be solved. For starters, tonight our lack of speed on defense and inability to get out of our defensive zone were exposed. This will need to be adressed. Our forwards cannot create a good rush if the defense cannot get the puck out. There is also a lack of depth and secondary scoring with AK46 missing. Goalies are not the problem.
One decision that gainey will have to make is wether he is a buyer or seller at the deadline. Myself i would consider selling some deadweight like Spacek (too much money for the production and next year PK can replace him), try to get something ,anything for some our UFA like Metro,Mara or BGL for that matter. I would consider trading Dags, Skost and Weber if the price is right. Continue to field offers for Halak, since i don't think it makes sense to have too much salary spent on two number one goalies and it seems that Price is Bob's choice.
we have cammy gionta pouliot ak46 that are almost 1 goal per game guys.. plek and gommez assist per game guys.. we have two very good goalies.. we markov hammer spacek three excellent passer D .. and were a 0.500 team?
Spacek an excellent passer??? You probably haven't watch the habs this year?
Spacek, Gill and Mara are a bad experience that needs to end.....Gainey did not have much options last summer when it came to D....and he signed what he could....but they all SUCKED big time.....
I would prefer we call back Carle, Weber and PK Subban..they cannot do worst....
Markov has looked bad last night and tonight....ditto for Gorge....what can you do when you have no D showing up?
