Oh gawd. Hopefully it's one of his antics of changing every line 2 seconds before games.

As per Tony on TSN 990:

1st PP unit:

Cammalleri - Gionta - Darche

Subban - Plekanec


Note: Plekanec is the centre and takes the face off but moves back to the point during the PP

What a joke!!! Darche, WHO THE ******* IS HE??? Pacioretty, Cole, Kostitsyn and Eller all sit on the bench while Mr. McGill plays the PP because he is the second coming of Ovechkin.

Darche playing on the first PP while Eller and Cole get no PP time is absurd.

Nice, 4.5 million dollar man Eric Cole watching Darche out there on the pp. I'm sure he will keep playing hard for Martin

It worked so well the first time, I'm not sure why they ever took him off.

fml...last year JM was trying to change lines to make Gomez produce, this year its gionta. Pacioretty Desharnais Kostitsyn was our best line and just for fun, he decides to change that line and now he puts darche cammy gio on the first unit WTF. As much as I was always protecting JM, now **** off with your ****** lines.

Why did we sign Cole if we weren't planning on playing him? Seriously...

I know, I know - in Carolina he never produced on the PP blah blah blah. But this isn't Carolina, and I've never heard of powerplay time hurting a player.

I actually have less problem with Darche on the PP (as sad as it is, he is our best screener) than I do that he will be next to Gionta and Cammalleri, with Plekanec on the point.

That's a recipe for giving up shorthanders.

For those that wants Cole on the PP, he is as talented as Moen btw...no puck control, no stick handling, no strength...on the other hand, Eller wouldve been a great addition on the PP instead of Darche.

It's like a disease that all coaches in Montreal can't shake.

I remember like it was yesterday, Habs acquire Czerkawski. Pimp him up and say they hope he can return to his 70 point form of 2 years ago. Game 1 of the season in New York, Czerkawski is on the 4th line while Andreas Dackell plays with Koivu. His relationship with Therrien and the habs was literally severed before it started. Had 25, 50p the next year.

Carbo managed to alienate newly signed Samsonov 2 weeks in.

But then some might say, oh but who cares, those players are crap. Well Julien played Kovalev on the 4th line in GM1 of the 2004 series against the Bruins. Seriously. One of the most skilled players we had in years, and Julien played him on the 4th line to start the playoffs.

This organization just knows how to start off on the wrong foot.

He's still a 20-30 goal scorer on a team that's offensively challenged enough as it is. Maybe Carolina scored enough goals that they could afford to sit Cole for their PP's but I'm not sure that we have that luxury.

So first of all we have no center up front on our #1 unit, so we will obviously lose the faceoff. Second of all Plekanec is garbage on the point and it didn't work last year nor did it work this year yet Martin can't see that. Then finally we have some big bodies in Pacioretty, Kostitsyn and Cole who can provide offense yet we put Darche who shouldn't even be playing in the NHL on our top PP unit. What a surprise our PP has been garbage this year.

Wish we could see something like this:

Pacioretty - Plekanec - Cammy
Subban - Diaz

Gionta - Desharnais/Eller - Kostitsyn
Weber - Yemelin
