I don't like what I've seen of Boyd and last night's game made me think that combining him with Pyatt is looking for trouble. Both ES goals were their fault.

This team really has no fire. No combative streak, no edge, no grit, no warrior spirit. Our goalie gets interfered and no one is punished for it. We don't hit anybody. When the team lose the game is almost always done. First thing first, send Boyd and Pyatt down, call back White and Conboy. I'm so tired of this crap.

It was Subban who pushed Kelly into Price, stupidest thing ever to do and our defense does it all the time.

And there is no need to have both Pyatt and Boyd in the line-up, both are pretty much the same soft player... we definitely should have White in the lineup before one of them.

I'd waive Boyd and call-up White... or anyone who actually wants to help this team win.

It was an awfull display of lame ducks out there...

This team sucks ass... meanwhile St-Louis are first in the league (or close to it).

well, glad to see more people coming to the realization that this team is soft. They're very soft and have been this way for years.

Gotta love seeing a hab player and an opposing player chasing the puck in the corner and instead of the Hab player laying a body check, he gives a soft little stick check. Soft hockey.

Honestly KW, people who are unconvinced that Gauthier is skilled enough to build and lead this team, that's who. Even more the people who refuse to make excuses for a long list of bad moves that have prevented the team from rising above pretender status.

At least we're not being blown out of these damn games. We somehow manage to keep them close.

I'd rather be winning though damn it!

Well unfortunatly Gauthier needs to mop up Gaineys mess
He has little cap room and who is going to want an over the hill Spacek, Hammerlick, or Gill... or an over paid under performing Gomez... maybe there are teams that COULD take them but the habs would need to bend over a barrel.

By no stretch do I agree with the moves he has made but you need to be realistic with what he has to work with.

NOW next summer that is a different story with an estimated 30 million to play with changes need to happen

Last time I checked, penalty killing was an important part of hockey. Maybe I'm sleeping and am just dreaming.

PS. Don't even try telling me Boyd is as good on the PK as Tommy Pyatt. Guy was a beast in the playoffs and he's second on the team (forwards) in PK time per game (2 seconds behind Halpern).

Pyatt definitely brings something to the team. There is no doubt in my mind who our forward who sits should be and that is Boyd. He had one or two good shifts last game, but also a couple terrible ones and generally he just looks weak and useless to me. And weakness isn't the end all and be all - IF you can bring something else to the table, but he hasn't done that either. I really am not a fan and would not put him in the lineup over any of the top 12 by choice. Maybe with injuries he can squeeze in or if someone like Lappy or Pyatt or something really trails off and we are desperate, but as of now, Boyd has definitely earned 13th forward status for me.

I understand Pyatt role in PK but he need to be stronger at 5vs5. His line with Lapierre and Boyd are minus 14 so far this year. Boyd is the worse of them with minus 6 in only 9 games while playing less than 10 minutes. This is an unacceptable situation.

Our top line are responsible for the lack of offense but our fourth line can't allow goals like they're doing right now. This team need solid performance from this line and right now even if our offense would score, all their work would be wasted by the play of Lapierre, Boyd and Pyatt.

The error they did at training camps is not keeping a spot for a call-up, any of these guys would have a lot more pressure if they know that White or someone else could take their spot.

You forgot about all the posts demanding White to be called up.

Last time I checked 5 on 5 play was also important, getting scored on twice during 6 minutes of even strength is awful.

I am not a Pyatt fan. He's a featherweight. While he has some value on the PK, Boyd seems worthless and he makes Darche seem like gold by comparison.

I'd like to remind you that your team is 3rd in the Eastern Conference and best in the division. There are teams who would give body parts for a goalie with as much potential as Carey Price (my Sens sure would). Criticizing a game is fine, but the makeup of the team? Come on, the Habs are doing a lot better than most.

Thanks, a great observation, but this board is a rough place to be after a loss...

So true. The dumb comments abound on any board after a loss, but it's the worst whenever I visit the Habs board

I suspect that some fans expect teams to go all out 100 percent shift after shift, game after game, while outhitting and outpunching every opponent. They're supposed to dive after every puck and play with Brian Burke's preferred style of belligerence. As Brian Burke found out, hockey teams - with rare exceptions - are not composed for this task (even Anaheim these days is not the tough bunch of yore and they often play some lazy ass hockey).

The Canadiens are probably one of the least physical teams because it's not their style to play physical. But that doesn't mean they're not trying their best.
