Again, could've sworn when people said he was skating with the team that JM specifically said he was weeks away from being ready......

Everyone arguing since are arguing not because of logic but because they want to be right, or they have feelings for a player. Oh I like him, so lets play him.

Guess what

SERGEI KOSTITSYN HAS A NAGGING INJURY.


Why else would he miss practice today? Why else would he have missed the last game of the year? He missed 2 games in April because of it.

Stop thinking the coach sucks because your not as informed as he is. He didn't practice today.

Thanks, /thread.

If SKost was not at practice he is certainly injured.

Metro is undeniably a solid addition.

Good move.

Go Habs

Anything other than an Injury is dumb from Jacques Martin... What has Travis Moen, Mathieu Darche, Tom Pyatt, or Maxime Lapierre has done better than Sergei to deserves a spot ?!?

Knowing the guy's history... I'm not surprise though.... This team doesn't deserve Sergei. It is clear in my mind now that this kid will never flourish here in Montreal. The same goes for Andrei Kostitsyn.

Let's trade him before he still holds some values... For his own good and for his career, Montreal shouldn't be an option for the brothers anymore. This team doesn't know how to develop pure offensive players, it's getting pathetic !!

Having Metro back is really going to help that second line.

Moen-Moore-Metropolit, oh baby, I think they are going to have a good game.

The only reason he wouldnt play is if he's hurt and I guess not showing up at optional practice means that. Thing is Metropolit may not be in better shape then Sergei is.

I feel like there's no player suited to play on that line more then Sergei, injured or not. I just hate 3rd lines when they have no player that can have the puck on their stick more then 2 seconds. That's a 4th line for me more then a 3rd line. I hated Lapierre on that line and Metropolit would prolly be a worse fit.

We need Sergei in the playoff, someone needs to sit with him and remind him what he does great and what he needs to work on. His defensive game is key to go far in the playoff and his vision as well. Just sometimes he looks like a guy that needs to be told a bit what to do, but every team has these guys you just need to take time with them to make sure they understand their role and stuff.

I also heard that S Kosty has had an injury that's bothered him for a while now, if he can't play in the top 6, i don't think he will ever be effective in the NHL.

I wouldn't be surprised if Sergei is injured. He doesn't have the same jump to his game that he had say 10 games ago. Whichever way you cut it, everyone on the Habs has played well in the last 2 games. If you take out the one guy that is still fighting a nagging injury, then so be it. Nobody deserved to be benched, pure and simple.

That said, i find it hard to believe that Metropolit is 100% fit. Didn't he have a separated shoulder and was supposed to be out for 6-8 weeks? I just hope that he's playing because he's healthy, and not because we really need a boost in the lineup..

Hi Erika Trunitsyn. It’s the first time that I have the "privilege" (you are a hfboards pillar! Kudos btw ) to reply and disagree with you.

I know that you like Sergei, so allow me to be clear: two and a half years ago, Sergei’s play amazed me. Heck… I even compared him to Mark Recchi!

That being mentioned, since then I saw zero progression in his play.

I was expecting "Darche out" but Sergei did shy away from hits/heavy circulation on numerous occasions during the first two games so it’s not really a big surprise.

Did you notice him shying away from hits?

Yes, we need more experts like you to come in and help develop these players.

If sergei is injured, then fine, let him sit out. I didn't think he played badly by any means, but if it's for a long term solution(him coming back in full health) why argue it?

Remember the movie Youngblood, she could play the role of Miss Mcgill.

Way to misunderstand what I said and to put words in my mouth...I have nothing against the fact that Sergei is out for the game as long as the motives are right...I only meant that the coach shoul hold back his personal grudges and put the better players available on the ice whoever they may be.

Excellent question, I'm waiting for an answer.

Oh wait, I think I know the answer: He's injured, so he's avoiding contact.

I just have one question:

Will Metropolit shy away from contact in the corners tonight?

Something tells me Sergei is in a better state of health than Metropolit.

And something tells me that Metropolit will play with more edge than Sergei.

Play like an unproductive girl in 2 consecutive playoff games = scratch

I have no problem with this rule.

Difference is Metropolit could play on one leg both eyes closed and a mini stick and he would have more chance to play on the PP then Sergei hence being more productive in the process.

Well considering Metro has the most PP goals on the team, AND SHOOTS RIGHT, I think thats pretty fair.

If not then Another possibility that I see, is the fact that Darche crashes the net on the a regular basis, something that Sergei does not bring on any day as it's not his play style.
Yes, when you play in the NHL, AHL experience matters very little.
Experience is completely irrelevant if you're not good enough to keep a NHL job. I'm also much more content living with the mistakes of a youngster with talent learning then the ones of a career AHL veteran.

Darche crashes the net...nice, you've identified pretty much the ONLY thing he can do in the offensive zone. Terrific.

Hey, maybe it's because Darche has 5shots on net and Sergei only 3. Matter of fact, A.Ko and Pouliot lead the team with 7 shots each but they have twice as much ice time as Darche!!..I think we should make Darche play 18-20min that way we'll have more shots on net.

I don't understand the love this guy has been having. He really has 0 impact on our team and is easily replaceable. Actually, he did have an impact last game but for the wrong reason that we all know.
He's been a decent 4th liner for the most part of his games play with us, but nothing any other 4th liner couldn't do.
Sergei is not a 4th liner. When healthy, Sergei makes the 3rd line a dangerous one. Ever since he got checked, looked awkward and was talks of a possible injury, his play has dropped and his line looks weaker. Darche doesn't come close to having this impact.

Sergei is injured and that's why he's out. Simple and Clear.

I'm fine with him playing, mostly think it's stupid that Sergei can't ever play PP no matter what, like him versus a guy with only one leg both eyes closed and a mini stick would play ahead of him.

Is your head buried that far in the sand? SK is not willing to pay the price and play physical and those guys are. In the playoffs it's not enough just to be a guy taht lit it up in the OHL ~cough~ joe Thornton ~cough~, you have to actually show up and compete.
