It's okay guys, if you like a soft mentality and watching your best players getting push around and repling by "Don't care, we're gonna score on PP." , well that's fine.
That's just not the way i want it. I would like us to have guys like Thornton, Mcquaid, Neil, Prust, Crombeen, etc.. That could prevend what happened last game against them.
Every one has their opinion i guess...
Woah, you should stop talking like you know everything. EVERYONE would like to see the Habs pound the Bs, but you know what? It's not gonna happen. Not with this team.
Now, I don't know if you noticed, but I think the management is trying to turn this team around. You build teams like the Bs with your draft, and in the past few years, they took intense gritty player much more than skills only players. I know it's ALL about drafting, but it's a big part of it.
Within 5 years, you'll have your big skilled and gritty team.
If we don't give into the Bruins bullying, I really think we can beat them in a seven game series. Watched Detroit beat Boston 6-2 a couple of weeks ago. The Bruins tried to goad them into playing their game but Detroit was uninterested. Just play the speed/transition game and we won't have too much of a problem.
Detroit really did a great job in that game they way they always do. That's their philosophy. We can't fight the Bruins so we have to hope for the same kind of thing.
Still though, it's not a good comparison. Yeah, Boston tried to get the physical game going and Detroit didn't bite, but our game was way different. Our goalie was cross-checked. Pyatt got a beating with a piece of a player's equipment. Boston was going to do what they did whether the Habs agreed or not. Here's hoping the refs keep this one sane.
The whole idea of watching a hockey game for the fights just appalls me.Any person that has ever fought to any extent knows the damage you can cause punching someone with a bare fist.The NHL in it's infinite wisdom leaves the fighting in the game sooner or later somebody that knows how to throw a punch never mind what size they are will kill a player that moment is coming.To those of you that enjoy fighting buy tickets to fights,don't try to infuriate people that love the sport of hockey.If any of you have ever knocked people out,you know how easy it would be to kill in the heat of the moment.So as humans with brains let's stop this stupidity,Man's inhumanity to man is Hitler's way not a rational person's way of being a sport.
I'd have to agree with that, maybe with Cammy on the right side. 4th line of DD, Halpern, White, and DD can get his minutes on the PP. Mara should be in too because the B's aren't as fast as a team like TBay, so he should be able to handle 3rd pairing minutes.
Remember that game against the Flyers a couple months back, the one after the whole Richards and Subban thing? When everyone thought it was gonna be a blood bath. We were leading and really dominating the game and we all thought that the Flyers were gonna play like goons and instead they started to play hockey and we lost the game. That is exacly what I don't want to see happen against the Bruins.
