The Habs are really getting hammered on the percentages this year. It's really fooling people into thinking they are no good because people are conditioned to judge games based on final score, and not, you know, what actually happens.

It's really disgusting how it's revealing most analysts have no clue, though.

Consistency.

Should be the habs' motto.

They're consistently inconsistent.

You know after Julien and Carbo I was ready to give this guy a chance but I am totally fed up. JM needs to go. He plays our worst players as much as possible and our young dangerous players get so little time it will ruin their development.

We need a new coach!

Ya..you make think I am wining, ranting...whatever, but there is no way in heck a team so soft will go far in the playoffs when 5'7 midgets are battling 6'3+ dmen in the o-zone.

Never ever gonna happen.
It's not ranting. It's reality.

Gainey had no clue what he was doing in the post-lockout era and screwed us big while cowardly running away with his tail between his legs.

Ya, the PK has been pretty bad lately.

Hopefully Sopel can help and (unpopular as it may be) I'd find a way to reinsert Pyatt into the lineup.

It saddens me that people say things like this about a Habs legend without batting an eye.

Hate the job he did here if you want, but don't disgrace the man who gave it all for this team on and off the ice. You say he was a coward, I say he finally realized after all the hardship in his life that it just wasn't worth it to come to work every day for this fan base. There's no joy in that.

Life's too short, as he knows all too well.

It's NOT panic mode...I know we are missing key players for most of the year, but Markov doesn't play forward.

We are way too small oin the front end and our Dman are way too soft and slow on the back end.

We aren't beating teams with big forwards... we beat the CAPS and PENS because we had a goalie who stood on his head.... that is NOT going to happen every year.

Ron Wilson is one of the most accomplished coaches in the league, and has taken that Leaf team to a near playoff position. I think its time people here stopped trashing him, and start giving some credit.

Martin makes bad choices, this we can all agree upon.

Right. Every loss is because of how unlucky we were and how lucky the other team got.

Funny how you never attribute any of our wins to luck.

Always the victim.

Gomez 0 goals, 0 assist, -1. In a game of this magnitude this is unacceptable.

20 minutes of ice time.

He has done, and is doing absolutely nothing...except eating cap space.

Kick this dog to the curb.

I just hate Alex Auld, always giving the soft goal that turn the game.

Refs were bad...VERY.

How in hell we could not convert on a young goalie giving sooooooooooo many rebounds, come on, the strategy should be easy, crash the ****ing crease.

Losing against the Leafs without Kaberle/Beauchemin/Versteeg (overrated or not, they are all offense), is a disgrace. We're loosing too many key points (versus Edmonton and Toronto lately, other examples may include some 3-1 game we blow out), these are gonna hurt at the end of the season.

Not every loss, but a frustratingly large number of them, yes.

Just look at last year's playoffs for some primo examples of that! If I was superstitious, I'd say the Habs are still paying for all the karma they expended on that fluke run.

Tomas Plekanec has had a nice 3 week vacation, when is due back with the team?

Refs: no comment, no more Dave Jackson pls he obviously has to many mental issues regarding his home city of Montreal.

All the BS aside, the Habs blew 3 open nets and coulda won that easy, somewhat outplayed the Leafs.

The most pathetic thing? Pacioretty scores with nearly 3 minutes left, and they give up. They have all the momentum in front of a home crowd who want to see a last minute thriller, and what do they do? Give the puck away for 2 minutes and let the Leafs control play. Pathetic. We didn't deserve to win and we didn't. Good for the Leafs tonight, they were better.
How can you say the refs were no part in this?

Let's say, hypothetically, that the NHL decides to handicap the Habs with a 0-2 deficit at the beginning of every game. Then, as the game come and went, the Habs fail to come back from that deficit, due to various reasons (didn't capitalize on chances or takes penalties) and lost. Will you say then that the 0-2 deficit was no part of the lost?

Habs' failure to score, to comeback, taking bad penalties, etc., are one thing, bad reffing is another. BOTH are factors in the game's results.

Because Hamrlik's care level was high. I can understand the frustration people have for the guy on one goal but geez he made up for that and more. To give some of the offence half a chance he held the zone numerous times, screened in front of the net, tried backdoor, picked up two assists. I don't get all the hate. He played that much maybe because effort wasn't there from others. He was totally gassed at the end.

I don't get the start for Auld. If Vancouver took that much out of Price to not start this game then the win in Vancouver is meaningless. I put a lot of this loss on the coach frankly and for the most part I support Martin.

Plekanec was annoying tonight because he just seemed to bail out a few times.

The penalty kill should welcome Sopel with open arms. Gill was awful. If he's not killing penalties he's useless. When this team is down he can't be on the ice hence Subban I guess can't either.

JM keeps using our vets instead of using the young players (who, btw, are playing much better than our vets, save for gionta maybe) and then we use the excuse that this team is tired.

28 minutes of ice time for Hammer tonight... that's pathetic. I don't usually complain about the coach (I usually like JM) but I think HE needs to step up his game right now. He's not as good as he was a few months ago.

Not completely his fault, JM puts players in positions to fail

Eller playing wing
Hammer 29 minutes
Halpern on wing

I can't stand him... no emotion, the game has passed him by.
