I also think the D situation is impacting the offence. That first pass and the support at the point are spotty. Combine that with some piss poor decisions by our premier players and you have what we see.
On another note....I hope this is the last time we see 100 players in and out of the lineup during the pre-season. In hindsight I feel it has had a negative impact on the team. They never got to work out the kinks.
Gill said it, but there is not really a perfect trust in each other, and thats a huge problem.
And i totally agree about the pre-season part, i already said it, but that was not a good use of the pre-season.
This is the Canadiens, the fanbase is used to a goalie standing on his head on a nightly basis in order to win games, its been going on since Patrick Roy. Ice a crappy team but always blame the goalie when he dosent stop 40 shots a night.
And then give credit to the coach for his great strategy when our goaltender stops 54.
