IMO the biggest problem with this team is Scott *** Gomez. He has no business playing professional hockey if he doesn't honor or at least pretend to honor his contract.

People need to relax, its one game in February.
People think our team was intimidated by the Bruins?
Habs are not intimidated by the Bruins. Anyone who thinks that, clearly didn't see the match. The Bruins might have been stronger than us physically, but we were not intimidated by them.

Gomez needs to be scratched.

AK disappears as soon as their is hitting yet he leads the team in hits... ugh...

I felt bad for Spacek and Pyatt. Those guys took a beating...

We need some toughness and I would love to have Chris Neil on the team.

Yes this won't happen in the playoffs but it's time to protect some of our players.

I'm not too worried. First lost against Boston this year in 4 games. Cammalleri comes back and Gomez and Andrei wake up and this game is completely different.
For the record, I thought AK's performance was pretty shameful tonight. I might be biased, but I didn't think Gomez was as bad as AK, who floated around at the point aimlessly while the wingers crashed the slot.

Gomez was pretty bad tonight, but I'm sure he'll have a good game tomorrow night. He holds himself accountable. Kostitsyn? Not so sure.

What you do here is sign four career minor leaguers a la oggy ogglethorpe add link gaetz to the mix for the last regular season game of the year v the bruins.
Throw them onto the ice and have them spit; gouge; kick; punch; poke; spear; two-hand; and head-butt the crap out of the starting line-up. Then when the dust is settled and the extra blood is scraped off of the ice, we'll have traded 5 goons for 6 skilled players and the game can resume.

1- The Habs gave up 12 GOALS in the last two games...

2- I am sorry, but no way the Habs are gonna go anywhere without some muscle...

3- The Habs are playing tomorrow night... How much energy are they gonna have to play that one ?

Of course we all know that Pouliot is going to have to "answer" for knocking out Krejci next game. It's the Bruin way.

I wouldn't mind some team toughness (namely guys who can play hockey too, not just goons who play 3 mins a game) but it's pointless to go completely over the top and suggest we need to rehaul the entire roster. We've beat this Bruins team before many times, and we'll beat them again. Stop getting so hung up on who wins the fights and worry about who wins the games.
Quoted for the truth.

The sky is falling because we lost one game against Boston of the 4 we've played this year. We lost 8-6 with our second line being Desharnais, Darche and Pouliot.

Go ask Devils fans what they think of Clarkson's games. They're pretty divided on him, it seems.

I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I didn't enjoy this game at all. Our team is made up of hockey players not boxers / fighters.

I was looking forward to a skilled and passionate game, this was a joke.

That doesn't mean its not a good idea to have a guy to protect your players. Bruins had the top team that year as well. And Laraque was an enforcer who couldnt play hockey. And Im not even sure he was an enforcer. I mean, he was technically one of the best fighters, but he would go up behind a player, tap him on the shoulder and hand em a gold embossed invitation to fight.

Laraque was not an effective enforcer. To say that enforcers are unneffective based on that is like saying that because we once had a goalie who couldnt stop a beachball goalies are useless.

Why is Eller still up? WHY. I like the kid and I think he will be a player for us in the future. But hes CLEARLY not ready. I thought they turned a corner when they realized their prospects need more seasoning in the ahl. Guess not. Hes not helping the club right now. A guy like White would be far better for our third line.

Yea wouldn't mind him at all.

But our most pressing need at forward is still a guy who can replace AK.

I seriously like the guy's package but AK's hockey sense is extremely questionable as is his effort. We need a guy that can give his all there. I'm not convinced that Clarkson can play top 6 minutes.

I think it's about time Eller went down to the AHL. He's learned a bit here in the NHL but he needs to regain his confidence down there and play in an environment where making mistakes is not viewed as a disaster but a learning opportunity.

Things learnt:
Eller should be sent down
AKost should pack his bags (and this is coming from a guy who's mostly defended him)
When Subban is bad, he's BAD
We need a real 4th line.
Max Pacioretty is a baller.
