You should have demanded a full refund since you went to watch the Habs play hockey and they didn't show up tonight.... The least they could have done was give you 24 beer to help ease the pain of watching that disgrace...

On the bright side you got to see PK play in person...

Just wanted to say..Phoenix is playing quite well this year. They have more points than Pittsburgh playing in a much stronger conference.

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.
What would you call the events at the end of yesterday's game then??..Frustration??..If they don't care, then why are they frustrated?...

O'Byrne wanted to send a message early. Laperriere said O'Byrne is the one that challenged him right off the draw. So, he tried, unfortunately it didn't quite work out as he had hoped. Gomez already dropped them, Pouliot did too, Gorges, Gill, Moen, Lapierre. They're not fighters, we don't have some, but they have heart.
It's not after every hit, dirty or clean, that you'll see players fight.

Sure, our team won't win the cup. But it's tough to assess just how far we are from being contenders when we haven't seen them play with a healthy roster yet.
And I think we should address the bottom six before anything.
Adding aggressive energy players on 4th would already help a lot imo.

What the hell, D'Ago still playing?! I have serious misgivings regarding Martin. Subban needs to be called back after the Olympic break. He was a breath of fresh air the last 2 games. Whatever it takes to make room for him NOW it needs to be done. Says a lot when this kid was the best D man. Halak was garbage tonight.

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..
Everybody sucks and Subban is a future NHL all-star.


We need more fans like you.

After watching the game on CBC

--Carbo is such a bad color man,,,Simpson is really great
--CBC never once mentioned Cammy AKost BP Marky being out(yet if Pronger Richards Carter and Briere were out they would go on and on about how much they were missed)
--Habs D is brutally slow with no quickness(except PK)
--Moen needs to be more agressive in these games against teams like Philly
waste of time using Dags and Desharn on 4th line( rather use White and Stewart ---someone that will actually initiate a hit)
--Metro seems useless now
-- We really need Boucher up coaching....new ideas more energy coaching...move JM up to Assistant GM or something
--Gomez is one that earns his money

Our team doesnt' show heart on a consistent basis. Be honest, would you say that 'playing with heart' is something we're known for?

How many times during every intermission do we hear that the club isn't playing with nearly enough heart? How many times this year have we watched as this team has been pushed around?

There are no Maurice Richard type guys (and I mean heart wise, not skill wise) on this team. We don't have the guys who HATE to lose on this club. We're a bunch of panzies who are soft and don't pay the price to win.

And that shows a lack of heart.

Harmlik - trade for 2nd Rounder
MAB - trade for 5th rounder
Mara - WAIVERS
Gill - Great on the penalty Kill, useless otherwise - Trade for 2nd round
Spacek - Impossible to move / Too early to buyout

Can we do all this by the deadline?

Keep:

Markov
Obyrne
Gorges
Subban

Call up:

Henry
Belle

Spacek as our 7th (spike his drinks with steroids, hope he improves. If not, make a mandatory drug test, find steroids in his system. and kick him off the team with 0 cap hit)

He is right. Subban was by far the best Habs D man the last 2 games. Not even close. And that is notwithstanding the inability of several Habs players to take advantage of his excellent positioning in crucial moments which were not taken advantage.

What a terrible management this team has.

Honestly, how this team is run is so ****in' pathetic it's not even funny. To the point where I am confident I could do a better job and get fans excited in a week.

Cammalleri - small, but a lot of heart
Gionta - small, but a lot of heart
Gomez - Small, but a lot of heart
Plekanec -Small, but a lot of heart
Moore - Small, but a lot of heart ( or at least it seems)
Bergeron - Small, but a lot of heart
Desharnais - Small, but a lot of heart.
Metropolit - Small, but heart.

Do you guys see a pattern here, cause I sure as hell do. This may be the new NHL, but small player still don't win you jack. It's also why I hate the Moore deal. It brings nothing we don't already have.

****ing wake up, you dumbasses. Make SMART trades, not just trades for the sake of making one to keep those idiotic journalists happy.

**** this team is a disgrace.

Props to O'bryne for fighting. A big **** you for keeping the same ******** small ass lineup.

Here's Montréal's top 10 for hits.
1) Travis Moen GP63 Hits: 131
2) Maxim Lapierre GP 63 Hits: 124
3) Ryan O'bryne GP: 36 Hits:75
4) Josh Gorges GP: 63 Hits 72
5) Andrei Kostitsyn GP 40 Hits 69
6) Max Pacioretty GP 52 Hits:68
7) Hal Gill GP49 Hits 59
8) Marc-Andre Bergeron GP51 Hits50
9) Paul Mara GP 42 Hits 50
10) Guilliaume Latendresse GP 23 Hits 47

And just for proof.

11) Ryan White GP 16 hits 47

****in' soft.

So we beat Pit and Wash in the span of a week.

Then we lose to Boston and Philly...twice.

Anything wrong with this picture?

sigh.

desharnais 5 6
gionta 5 7 maybe
pleks metro gomez all maybe 5è10

Recchi29,

My suspision is that even Gainey would agree with you.

Let's face it - if the Habs were even a decent contender, do you think Gainey would have "quit" in mid season?

Think back to '08 -'09. Marty Brodeur, arguably the best goalie in the NHL and likely the best player on the Devils roster, missed 50 games due to injury - Devils just kept on winning - good teams/organizations find a way to play above their injuries!

Subban can become the Habs version of Mike Green.

Listening to Carbo do color makes me wonder how come the players he had last year didnt chew off their own arms.

****in' soft.

Here's Philly.
Daniel Carcillo 136
2 Darroll Powe 123
3 Ian Laperriere 113
4 Scott Hartnell 99
5 Mike Richards 89
6 Braydon Coburn 80
7Chris Pronger 79
8 Arron Asham 75
9 Blair Betts 56
10 Kimmo Timonen 53

And by looking at this, we can also see that Philly doesn't have that much more hits, so it must mean their hits are better.

So the Halak bubble burst tonight. Gauthier should have trade him when he was hot. Too little too late.

No matter what, I still think Price is the future and Halak will be traded at the deadline or prior to the draft.

I was at the game and Halak 5 goal on 17 shots :facepalm

Whoever was arguing with me last week that they would take Hamrlik over Phaneuf right now wish to retract that ridiculous assertion?

Hilarious.
