Gomez has been GOD AWFUL, but Cammy has been very bad as well. There's no point in talking about Gomez's play until he turns it around because he can't get much worse than this.
However, Cammalleri has done close to nothing all season long. The guy's a pure goal scorer, so don't cite me goal totals. I haven't seen the work ethic I saw from him last season. I haven't seen the hockey smarts that normally make him a 40 goal scorer. I haven't seen the true desire to backcheck and make a smart defensive play.
He's been coasting around all season long, Take last game for example. He didn't have a good game at all. He scored on the PP because it was given to him on a silver platter and he's just that gifted.
The question: where can he get motivation from if it isn't goals? He's not retarded, he knows goals aren't going to motivate him because he CAN score at will. Compare this to Eller: if he scores, he'll be on cloud 9.
I truly think that Martin has to re-unite "the" line. He needs to be put back with a defensive specialist in Plekanec and he needs to learn by watching Pleks that work ethic comes first. No more of this floating ********.
lol dont put the blame on Martin.. He has given Gomez a chance to redeem himself, what he didnt do of course.. So expect Martin to give some pretty interesting post games comments on his play and expect Martin to give Eller more responsabilities for next game.. He has been patient enough with number#11..
Bad loss despite Price being outstanding... Flyers dominated the 2nd and 3rd periods... Winning games can only last so long when your best scorers aren't scoring and with your PP being absolutely brutal...
The Habs top forwards need to step up and start being the Habs best players..They can only rely on Price for so long...
by far the most extreme game of year. a superb first...hamerlik starts the second - 15 secs in with a penalty and that was all...lost the momentum and never got it back...no urgency to the team's game. they were laughing in the first thinking it was over and philly just ground out a win...the top 6 need to wake the **** up. we're not going to win much with price and inconsistent secondary scoring
Game was ok, we could have won this one which shows alot considering Markov is out. Bodes well for the playoffs IMHO.
Wish people would stop using Markov as a excuse. We did well without him in the lineup, and he wasn't steller when he came back. We are going to have to live without him for a long time, the continued injuries are just that, he's getting old and he's getting injured. Time to move on for christs sake.
The habs need to pick up a sniper and a defenseman if they want to compete. Otherwise enjoy the season for what it is. None of the big guns step up when we need it. We are getting scoring from unlikely sources most nights.
