Moen just doesn't play physical with the Habs. I'm starting to think that Martin discourages them from playing physical.

I agree with the no grit. I really don't understand why they keep D'Ago-Desharnais to play on the 4th line. To me, it's as bad as having MAB and O'Byrne on the 4th.
Players not playing their positions.

I disagree with the heart part though. Saying that means they don't care and that's simply not true. You don't battle back from 3-0 in the third like yesterday if you don't care.

Our top scorers wouldn't have stood up for Plek, true. That's why I want White there, possibly Neilson or Stewart as well. But maybe they wouldn't have had to stand up for him because we'd be leading.
Maybe the Flyers don't stand a chance in this game if Cammy-Pouliot-A.Kost and Markov are all healthy. Maybe it doesn't change a thing.
One thing for sure, those are all guys that can help you score. They won't help you win fights, but at the end of the day, scoring is what counts. You can even argue MAB is a key guy out because of his point shot.

I agree on the grit part though. We need a minimum of that. It's frustrating because White has been quite decent while others useless, yet he's kept in AHL.

Subban owned Pronger, that was funny as hell

Subban, Gomez, Gionta and Price played good

Subban got a point so moral victory

I hope Spacek, D'agostini and Lapierre are gone at the deadline, and I loved Lapierre last year, but this year he is like corn, hard to digest.

Of course, RDS said that.

Every professional athlete should have heart no matter who's on the ice, who's injured, whatever...I don't think many in particular were high in the effort category today.

Well,

On the plus side, at least we didn't lose 18-0.

We couldve used Markov, Cams, Pools and AK tonight as well.. But this is the hand we have to play right now! We've played 5 games or so as a healthy team, and considering were where we are, its not that bad IMO. Its going to be an uphill battle every game and when we come out flat like we did tonight (especially after lastnight) this is how the rest of the season is going to go. Hopefully we come back to a fuller, more healthy lineup after the break.

Werer not buyers or sellers this year at the deadline, we haven't been healthy enough to even see what this team is made of yet. Off season is when the real changes will take place IMO.. Price or Halak? Pleks resigned? Are we going to dump Hamrlik or Spacek?

Is it true that Halak doesn't want to come back if he isn't the #1 guy? If not, sign both goalies, let them split time BETTER.. Maybe each goalie plays 4-6 games in a row, then switch regardless of the win-loss record.

And I believe Gauthier felt comfortable letting go a 2nd NEXT year for Moore because he felt if we stay healthy we actually have a decent team. Everytime a player gets injured, everybody has to step it up and maybe play different roles and more minutes then their used to, hense why we look so out of place and tired out there. And then when these injuries are for more then just a couple games, it only adds to everything else IMO.

That's my little rant tho, patiences may be growing thin, but injury after injury makes it even harder. We just need to take a step back these 2 weeks, re-energize and realize that if our top players were playing, we wouldn't have to try Darche, Moen, Lapierre etc... On the top 2 lines.

Yes coincidentally, the best ones are the ones we drafted + Gorges (we developed him though).

I'm not. I'm not saying we have to trade them now, but we need to clean up a bit this summer in this department. It's horrible and I can't see how we can get worse defensemen than that.

Why was Pronger so mad? He looked like he was going to hit Subban in the back with a dirty boarding shot. Idiot got out smarted by a rookie.

Some claimed Kostopoulos made Lapierre. Now, with 80% of the season done, I tend to agree with this. Kostopoulos was probably the fuel of the Lappy line last year -- without him, Lappy is nothing.

I'm not sure what I just witnessed at the bell center...but it sure as hell wasn't NHL caliber hockey. I was starting PK chants in the ex zone. woot! Other than that...horrible. Halak didn't keep us in the game, defense was nasty...

SIGH.....


Is it next season yet?

I know, it seems like that is the only reason that he is still in the lineup though because they don't want to "lose" him.

Lapierre is useless without an enforcer beside him to fight his battles. Coward..

If we're going to rebuild, it would make no sense to keep Markov. He's our biggest trading asset and if we rebuilt it really doesn't make sense to waste him here.

Who says it has to be a superstar? For Pete's sake man, if a teammate gets thrown to the ice you stand up for him, you don't just sit there.

We're not contender but we have a good team and we can cause surprise in the playoff
Any team can upset another. The Coyotes beat Pittsburgh last week, so what?

As for the playoffs, yes we could upset a contender in a 7 game series. It would be just that though... an upset. And it's one thing to have an upset in the 1st round, it's a totally different to win the cup. We have no chance at that.

I don't even expect us to win fights but when you just watch as your teammate gets stomped an you do nothing? That's a lack of heart and it happens every night with this team. If you don't stand up for yourselves, you're going to get killed. There's not nearly enough guys on this team who understand this.

I know I sound negative but I'm a fan. I WANT this team to win. And in my opinion the only way this team can win is with radical changes and those changes won't happen until people come to the realization that we're not good enough to win. Until that happens nothing will change and we'll never go anywhere. When I argue for rebuilding it's because I want us to WIN, not because I want us to lose.

At least we know some fans want to see Price do well. I believe there were "Carey" chants after Halak got lit up tonight.

I also loved the "PK! PK! PK!" chants.

It's tough when we have an AHL line-up, slow d-men and zero grit. The identity and philosphy of this team really has to change. If you look at a team like Ottawa, the have A LOT of character/grit, moreso than skill.

I still had hope that the Habs could make the playoffs this year on Thursday but after the back to back losses to the Flyers I think this years injury riddled Habs team may be done...

I'd prefer to be sellers at the deadline but I doubt that happens...

I liked how our vets snubbed Subban on the second goal, really liked it..

This D is the worst in the league, I keep saying it since the begin of the season and Subban proved me right again tonight giving them a hockey clinic..

OByrne as a keeper? lol this guy is a 7th defenseman on a good team..

Gorges has ton of heart but unfortunately his lack of pure skills will always make him nothing more than a valuable bottom pairing D.. I would keep him cause we need guys like him to win but isnt irreplacable..

Gill and Spacek are jerk, a shame for this jersey, Mara is fine where he is...

Markov is injury prone and never proved anything when it really matters, he is a great puckmover with great vision, solid defensively but Im effraid his last injury, a real bad one, affect his play in the future.. Personally I wouldnt be against trading him for 2 young promising D..

Subban is an absolute keeper, has everything to become an all star, he and Price are the only intouchables in my mind..
