Sabres is much better on paper and have been proving it. We're doomed.
I think the habs can bounce back and playing a tougher opponent on paper is a great occasion to prove a point to themselves and the fan. Remember this team has proven that they can play up to their opponents so i would not throw this game as an automatic lost. Avoid dumb penalties and i think we have a shot at winning. Go habs Go.
Remember last season how the team played shiet against bottom teams and then just out of the blue comes out strong against the top teams. And we seem to play well against the Sabres, they're a good match-up for us. speed vs speed.
Their forwards tend to open up and this usually leaves some room for some quick transition. I think all we need is Price to come out just a little stronger then the last few games and we should be able to hold them up. Plus, Plekanec usually gets a breakaway or two against them.
Take your blinders off man. We have a terrible hockey club.In fact, I will make you a bet. If MTL makes the playoffs this year, I will NEVER post again on this board.
If they miss the playoffs, you have to admit to everyone on the MTL board that I was right.
How can you be taken seriously? This team has a core that has proven they can beat adversity like injuries and controversy and still make the playoffs, a coach that has a proven track record that can take a patched up roster to the playoffs, and one of the top goaltenders in the league. We are 4 games in and you are already writing them off, methinks you have an agenda.
