I knew that wouldn't last too long. Martin's philosophy in all situations is about how not to get scored on, not how to score. That's why he had Plex at the point. He probably feels Emelin is ready "defensively" for the point now. It's all a little backwards, but this is for the best.

I approve these lines. Especially the PP. Perfect.

I don't think they have any intentions of putting him in the top 6, which is precisely why they feel that the PP is a good spot to let him show off his talents. DD's problem thus far is precisely what Gomez's was last year: he always thinks pass, and the other team's know it. He needs to put more pucks on net and make quicker decisions with the puck.

But that's the problem with the PP, period. They work really hard to get the puck, but once they get it they spend too much time lollygagging the puck back and forth. Hopefully we'll see more pucks on net from the points next game, since they all have good shots.

The Desharnais hate is getting ridiculous. In fact, the hate in general is ridiculous...

Next game is the 4th game. Thats not even 5% of the season. Chill out everyone.

As a matter of fact these lines are pretty good imho.

I'd rather:

Pacioretty - Pleks - Gionta
Ak - Eller - Cole
Moen - Gomez - Darche

and for PP:

Pacioretty - Pleks - Gionta
Subban - Weber

AK - Eller - Darche
Diaz - Emelin

We had a top 9 of Cammalleri-Plekanec-Cole, Maxpac-Gomez-Gionta and Kostitsyn-Eller-DD + Dache and call-ups. Moen still ends up in the top 6

The coaching staff is scrambling to find answers before 1w 2L becomes 3 and 7 and they are out of a job. The team does not have a superstar, just a roster full of complimentary players, theres not much Martin can do with what he has. Outside of the power play, this group is too small and timid to be effective in 5 on 5 situations and Carey price has win too many games for us. Yes I am a Habs fan to the bone, but I don't like the way this team is built and things won't change until management decides to change philosophy on player personell.

Cammy pleks cole
Patches gomez gio
DD eller andrei

I don't see why Cole would be bad on the PP. He's got size, really good hands, scoring touch. Park him out front of the goalie to pick up the garbage.

Cole only knows how to skate in a straight line with his head down.

Cole reminds me of a bigger Higgins with a better shot.

I wonder about the D pairings. That's the real issue imo. Although there isn't much you can do with an AHL D.
Like Martin said, there is nothing wrong with the D, the you guys played really well.

He never said that. He said they weren't the guiltiest guys last night.

I thought they looked like ****. PK included. But that's just me I guess.

Eller on the wing maybe his shoulder is still to soar to take faceoff consistantly. plus he might stay there for 6 to 10 days waiting for Cammy to comeback

You're right, they looked great. lol

I know someone here who believes this is the way it should be !

Take out DD and put in Kosty please.

I'd love to see a Pacioretty-Eller-Kostitsyn line later in the season.. or now.

When Cammy comes back we should roll with

Cole-Plekanec-Cammalleri
Pacioretty-Eller-Kostitsyn

And why can't JM have a first PP unit of Subban quaterbacking it and having Webber as his pair??

I think Diaz, Emelin, and Weber had a good game, that's what I meant.
Subban and Gill not so much, that's my opinion Jigger.

Fair enough.

And it's not like I'm expecting Weber, Diaz and Emelin to come out and look like seasoned vets either. They did ok. Just saying we're not exactly icing an intimidating top 6 right now and there is only so much JM or any coach can do with that.

I'd agree with this. Kosty's size and shot would be reason enough. I guess the only knock on him is that he's not the greatest playmaker/puckmover but then again DD hasn't looked very good at all. I'd put AK there instead as well.
