Arnott would be a good option to look at if NJ is out of it come the deadline, yeah. He should make for a fairly inexpensive rental given his age and pending UFA status. Something like Carle/Weber and a 2nd should do it, I think.

Habs were either drunk or hung over.

They always play like crap against Atlanta.

They'll play better tomorrow.

This is a Subban quote? Wow, he didn't appear to eager to engage.

Can Martin ****ing get back to Cammalleri, Plekanec and Andrei once and for all? We struggle to score goals, and these three are our top-3 scorers, and have showed chemestry in the past... Can't be much worst than having no line capable of scoring goals.

We need a top-4 d-man as soon as possible. All those minutes really start to wear off Gill and Gorges, and we need a body capable of eating a lot of minutes out there.

Bieksa looks like a perfect solution to me right now.

It sure appears we have problems against physical teams. I wonder if they will ever address this problem in Montreal, its making me angry.

Cut us some slack - most people in this state don't know what hockey is. Throw in crappy ownership, and you have a recipe for a half-empty arena. Hopefully we'll be able to turn it around and build a fanbase.

Enjoy having you Habs come to the games down here, generally classy fans.

Habs fans are going to be awesome with fans who don't cheer for a long-timed rival (such as Bruins, Flyers or Leafs). In the latter cases though, most often than not, there are a lot of battles to watch when you get out of the Bell Centre.

The good news is, we still allowed 3 goals or less in all but one game so far.

I was pretty sure we'd lose tonight, and I'm pretty sure we'll win tomorrow night.

Not a single good pass (moreso received), not a single well taken shot, move, decision, etc. Everyone was falling a la Pouliot, worst cohesion I've seen so far.

Atlanta played like....us usually. Great effort, sticks on the ice, easy to pick off stupid passes/plays, converted on easy chances (unlike us most of the season).

I stopped watching after a bit into the third period. Awful effort. Pyatt was the only one who seemed to play ok. Oddly enough, even Halpern struggled. It's as if someone turned down the tuner settings on the NHL11 version of this team.

Not a big deal, we'll rebound. I just did not appreciate them pulling this **** on a friday night against a conference team who is likely going to make the playoffs. Cammy. seriously. Score. you made it look pretty easy last season. Do that. Gionta's random shot generator again not effective. Way to make Auld look even worse by not scoring a goal (the second goal was pretty weak, deflection or not...should not be scored).

I thought the habs played okay in the first period but that last last minute goal was a killer. The habs are a completely different team when they concede the first goal.

Anyways, full credit to the thrashers. They took the game over in the 2nd period, and out-skated, out-chanced, and out-competed montreal soundly.

If the thrashers can make a habit of playing with this sort of intensity and structure, they wont miss the playoffs, thats for sure.

The goal at the end of the first was a heart-breaker, particularly since it was because of such bad play by Gill and Gorges.

Another annoying trend, that's three games in a row we take a penalty in the first 30 seconds of the second period : Hamrlik twice (Phi, Atl) , Gill once (LA).

Hard to get the offense going for the second when you allow the opponent to set the rhythm like that.

I was at the game (visiting some family and taking a break). Some thoughts on the play and the fans.

First, there were more fans in the seats for this tilt than I have ever seen for a Thrashers' game--certainly more than 10,000. About 20% were Habs' fans. There even was a good "Let's go Habs" chant going in the second and a whole corner of the ice with a big Canadian flag and a section of fans behind it. (They got into a little tussle with the Thrashers mascot at one point, but it might have been for fun--not sure).

Second, the Canadiens were flat-footed the entire night. Not sure what the problem is/was, but they looked like old men trying to get up the ice. This might have caused their positioning issues, which was abominable throughout the game.

Top that off with terrible decision-making shooting the puck and poor puck control and you will have a shut out against--no matter who is is between your pipes.

Yes, Atlanta is a good team (although they could have been beaten last night), but Montreal looked absolutely awful.

On the other hand, Eller looks like a star in the making. Not sure who he will play with when he grows into one, but he is going to be a stud.

Yeah, I was kind of surprised at the "good first period" comments (before the goal at least) on RDS, to me they looked slow and uninspired. The only two guys showing any intensity were Pyatt and Eller. Even Halpern was flat.

This I'm not so sure about, I think Price would have had the second goal, and that would have at least kept us in the game longer. But for the most part, considering how they were playing, I'm not sure how much of a difference that would have made.

Yup, if we'd played with the intensity we showed against LA, Vancouver or our first game against Philly we could have won that one.

Nothing to add to this, he's got a ways to go in terms of NHL level development, but the raw material is all there, and he is progressing nicely.

It's like the habs got a superiority complex against those team..

Trasher
Predators
Panthers
Lightning

It's the

-Who care about them? team..

It's like the habs always got some kind of motivation breaker against those wannabe NHL team.I'm not being a hater.I'm just saying loud what everyone think silently.
