Somebody needs to tell JM to wake the **** up and play let Eller play center permanently. Tonight, YET AGAIN, proved it. This "giving the vets all the chances in the world" thing has got to stop for the bennefit of the team.
Emelin and Diaz were solid tonight.
The consistency is not there yet, but they're progressing, its obvious.
And its really too bad that we basically have to "sacrifice" Eller while showcasing Gomez (im clear enough ?)...
But as long as he's here, since we are not going to bury him in the minors as this stage of the season, or buying out his contract, its the only way to get rid of his bad contract. Im not saying i agree with the idea, but its understandable.
I had to watch the game on a Carolina broadcast and even that commentator was saying Eller is definitely the Habs' best player tonight. Everyone seems to understand except for Jacques Martin. I also loved Emelin in this game! Diaz has been slowing down as of late, I think a stint in the minors could only be beneficial for him. GO HABS GO
Nice to see Price play mediocre hockey and the team pull through for him for a change. Usually, it's the other way.
For sure 2 of 3 or possibly all were flukes/deflected. Price has been so solid. Just because his style isn't as dramatic as TT's doesn't mean he isn't as athletic.
I've read too many posts here about Price not stealing games. He has, in fact, stolen a few. He is a positional guru and a steely eyed missile man. He is just not, generally a DRAMATIC goalie. Top 5 now, I believe after his carrer - top 5 all time.
Weird game, but his team let him down way more....
