Wrong again. Sorry, but having 5 skaters in the same damned positions and standing around is not an execution problem. It is a tactical problem.

Did you happen to see the difference between the last Canucks PP when players were moving with the puck and without the puck and our sad 4 power plays when our guys are simply passing the puck to virtually stationary players?

The point is not the problem. Being static on the point is. That is a coaching problem, not an execution problem. The sooner Molson figures that out, the better.

But.........many many beers were sold tonight to drown the pain.

Said effort was there, PP was one fo the reasons we lost.
Jacqula positioning himself as the developer of young talent and coach of the future. big ears is re-branding himself mid presser

wow. the habs have one of the highest payrolls in the league and Martin is talking like this team is like the Oilers.

Realistically speaking, its the youth carrying this team.

Subban is logging minutes like crazy.

Pacioretty Montreals best offensive weapon.

Desharnais is producing.

Emelin is turning into a rock.

Price has been Price.

Its the vets like Cammalleri, Gomez, Gionta, Gill who are laying turds all over the ice.

Take away any team's 3 top 5 dmen and see how they do.
Awesome.

Someone else who understands.

This is why I find it funny that we require a coach who speaks French.
I don't recall a coach who spoke good French.
Carbo was the closest to speak intelligently in French.
Demers , Julien, Martin, Therrien.....all of them spoke French like morons.

OK. But lets be real, did anyone expect this game to be close? Canucks are a FAR superior team than the Habs (it's not even close). Habs hung in there. Yes, they made mistakes, but that's what a mediocre team with injuries up the wazoo does. The team isn't that good, and on top of that they have a bunch of injuries.

Do you watch the Habs?

What player is different? James Wisniewski, that's who...

And i'm not saying the Habs should of re-signed him (I wouldnt have at that money) but the habs PP has always been dangerous because they've always had a PP QB (Markov or Wiz) and a shooter (Subban, Streit, Souray, Bergeron, Schneider).

Right now, they have some shooters...but no QB, no one has vision or creativity from the point.

It's easy to come in here and talk about the game after a win but win or lose I was going to share some thoughts about your team.

1. Gomez, he's really bad, I didn't notice him ALL game.

2. Carey Price, is a star goalie. I hope he resigns in Montreal long term.

3. PK Subban, I've been in impressed with him in the past but that was for his offense but WOW he held the Sedin's in check (litterally on his interference call). Usually when the Sedin's are paired against a offensive top pairing guy they just eat them alive but Subban really did well. Also Gorges needs to be resigned, or else we HAVE to sign this guy.

4. Eller, he's an amazingly smart player and I can tell he's almost the "frustrating he doesn't produce more" type (like Hemsky) but he really is a good defensive player. Impressive.

5. Looking forward to the march 10 rematch in our barn. May we both ****kick the Bruins from now until then.

Belichick actually won, Martin is more of a Brad Childress or some other plug coach.

Wow...you seriously going to try to make me believe that Martin is asking his players to stand around static on the ice during a PP?

Come on man!
