I have ****ing had it with Gomez. It still baffles me the guy earning 7+ million. He's absolutely useless and he seemed to lose a step from a last year. He's so predictable and his wrist shot is among the NHL's worst.
Gorges played a pretty bad game.
Subban is still invisible out there.
Pacioretty is all heart and is the best player since the beginning of the season.
Diaz is awesome and his confidence is way up. I can't wait 'til Gill's gone.
Emelin is the second best defenseman behind Diaz. Plays physical, passes well. Just needs some PP time, but that JM guy would rather put Plekanec or Kostitsyn at the point.
Cole's been a disappointment so far.
Price is playing scared. I don't know what's the matter with him. His rebound control is **** leakage.
Cole is like the Scarecrow from the Wizard of OZ, all over the place. I wonder what's up with him.
At some point the axe is going to fall if this continues and it will be with JM.
Kostitsyn hasnt developed under JM. Gomez's game continues to go further south, which is something i dont think any of us could think could get worse, and Cole is a man on an island. JM's life as a coach in Montreal depends on getting these guys going. Oddly enough he feels the Darches and Desharnais of the world are what going to keep him working.
Can I cast a vote for the word "Tank" to be banned from HF boards. I am so sick of reading that word in every discussion about our games and our team. It is like finger nails on a chalkboard. It was a good effort with 41 shots against Superman in a Sabres jersey, it was a great effort and will bring you win on most nights, it will be better. Go Habs!
I really don't understand the people who are actually complaining about the team in this case. Sure, it's frustrating, and believe me when I say I'm just as depressed as any of you over the last couple of games.
The thing is, though, that we just dominated a playoff team. That was the best game we've played all year, and we ran into a hot goalie, and had no luck at all on our side. What we have to realize is that there is still 74 games in this season, and anything can happen. Teams run into slums like this where nothing goes their way, maybe we're just getting ours out of the way early. Cammalleri was a huge loss and we're seeing the effects of that. This isn't a question of effort, because everyone gave it tonight. We just need some more luck.
People are complaining about Price too, but don't forget all that Carey has done for us. Not to mention he kept us in it and re-energized it with that breakaway save late in the third.
The goals are bound to start pouring in soon, I just hope it begins on Thursday.
Good effort, loved the Pac-DD-AK line, Diaz/Emelin played a good game, price didnt make key saves but wasnt to blame, Gomez and Gionta played really bad (when cammy returns, i want him with pleky and eller centering the 3rd line and gomez on the 4th).
Btw, habs are still winless at home (preseason included)
good effort by most of the guys but i just cant watch gomez play anymore i know its only 5 games into the season but this guy clearly doesnt have what it takes to be top 6 player he could be a great 3rd line center but hes been given 1st line minutes
