I cannot believe we will be playing the Lightning with so many injuries... Can someone answer me why Price is starting tonight?? We're missing NINE players... Give Auld the net today and let Price try to get the win tomorrow against the Rangers...
I love all of you guys and I admire the positive thinking, but today we will lose 5-0 and Price will be pulled in the 2nd. I just don't see it happen guys, even if the game is at home.
One last thing, didn't JM hear what Kostitsyn said about his line with Eller and Moen??? They had chemistry and all had a different role on that line! I personally don't like our first two lines
Sorry for this post, but I'm under the weather as well (flu... vomitting) so I'm in no good mood
Most people wrote this team off at the beginning of the year. Now, 8 injuries later including a couple season ending injuries, the habs are comfy in 6th spot.
Last year, most people had us beaten by the caps. That was considered a fluke, and then we were supposed to be swept by the pens. That markovless team took it in 7.
At some point, these experts need to chuck their egos out the door and admit that they underestimate this hockey club instead of looking for weak crutches time after time.
Sadly that will never happen and is why I don't listen to/watch as much analysis as I used to. I barely watch the news because of this too... any reporters on this board? Honestly what do they teach you guys in Journalism School?!?
He doesn't have a choice. If he doesn't produce now, it'll be magnified 10x and people will get on him like never before.
I believe his best performances have always been in high pressure situations. He knows that with Plek out of the lineup that he IS the #1 center and I think that's enough for him to get into fiesta mode
Edit: I think Eller could also have a breakout performance, he'll be in the middle of two very competent players and he will have more ice time than usual.
