Such a retarded post, I'm sorry. Just wow.
I know one game doesn't make a season. All I'm saying is that THIS game goes against what's widely believed here on the Habs board. It doesn't mean that this game is the truth and that the PG fanboys are all wrong, but it shuts them up at least for tonight.

Fair enough, it might, but then again, quand ca va mal, ca va mal when it comes to the Habs.

Nope. Still complete BS, and most likely made up.

The only positive from tonight is Jersey Shore season three is only one week away.

This, exactly!!!

When we were winning, it didn't matter what bad thing happened we managed to overcome it because the attitude was positive. Now it's the exact opposite. Some of the confidence stemmed from Price, but much of it came from the team attitude.

The team is taking brutal penalties, most of which stem from not skating. Being static is a symptom of an overall fear of being caught out of position. PK might as well be in the minors because he's playing scared. I think a lot of the team is like this.

The 5 on 3 was brutal and all too many men penalties are directly caused by the coaches. He should have to participate in the upcoming bag skate.

What does this indicate? That Claude Ruel was the second best coach after Bowman? The numbers lie. He was awful. For long stretches he rotated 9 forrwards and 4 Dmen. From this this point on the Habs will go either up or down in the standings. Either outcome is good, although for wildly disparate reasons. If thhey go up they should go as far as they can. Same for going down.

It was sooooooo frustrating to see that 4 on 2 with Lapierre carrying the puck to the offensive zone. All he did was a freaking soft shot with no ****ing angle.

Martin having a Power trip??...I strongly doubt it.

Pearn and Muller controlling the team but then, after a loss, Martin switches things around (even thought it was perfectly fine..).

Doesn't make much sense to me and seems rather improbable.

Maybe so but who really knows for certain..

As much as I hate JM as the Habs coach and have since he was first hired I know he won't be canned anytime soon and we're stuck with him and this boring no offense team....

Maybe he thinks he's Patrick Kane and can score from there then skate around waiting for someone to hand him the Stanley Cup

He didn't look that good. For example, he had trouble with a Subban's slapper from Habs zone... and there's many more examples. The Habs never made him work except from some shots from far away.

But he still managed to "shut out" the Habs since he stopped every shot he had against him. The only one that went pass him was directed in by his own defenseman.

I'm not denying it. The fact that what appeared to be a shaky goaltender at first was able to ''shut out'' the Habs is worrying.

If it wasn't for that gift goal we'd have been shutout 2 games in a row and only have 1 goal in 3 games. We need a change, perhaps a couple of rookies might be a spark. Ryan White for physicality and David Desharnais for the powerplay.

And the guy they got for him is the best goalie in the KHL atm and has already said he'd like to play in the NHL. What's the issue?
