Gorges = hurt
Spacek = playing like a drunken dingo
Picard = playing like the AHL'er he is
Hammer = doing ok, but getting worn out
Weber = was decent, needs more TOI and a better partner
Gill = Is what he is... solid if the play is in our zone, horribly slow when facing a rush.
So we have a #2/#3 type being overworked, two #5/6 types playing #2 and #3 minutes, a rookie playing decent, a veteran playing awful because of injury and a journeyman costing us games.
Bring back Subban. Sit Gorges until he's healthy. Sit Picard until he's dead of old age. Play another young kid/or trade for a #1/#2 vet type already. I think Kaberle makes more sense for us then Regehr. What would be really awesome of course would be getting both.
The thing is this is not panicking. It has not just been one game. The habs have been playing like **** since the Oiler game. About the time when Price came back down to earth and Pk got benched. They are damn lucky that Erik Cole took that 5 minute penalty last game or they would be 0-4 on this trip. Its scary and it feels helpless. They are in a downward spiral, thank god the east sucks this year, they still might make the playoffs.
