There's NO PP QB...what you're mentionning there is exactly what a PP QB does...they walk the line to create shooting lanes, they freeze the goalie by making them think shot but then passing to an open teamate, they block clearout attempts, they sneak in from the point backdoor, etc...

Thansk for proving my point
Again, whose job is it to "coach"/"teach" what I posted?



Is it better to not score goals by not taking chances with movement on the PP? Or is it better to not score goals by doing the same thing we have been doing since game one?

You tell me........

Our Dmen have a combined 8goals. Take Weber out, it brings it down to 5. Take away tonight's game, and that brings it down to 3goals. Our Dmen are not scoring.

Tonight they had a decent game. I found that St-Denis and Gill were absolutely useless at even strength. St-Denis scored a goal on a simple wrist shot from the point, but otherwise, useless.
Campoli can chip in somewhat. So again, no matter how small, it remains an improvement.

So Spacek and Campoli in real soon. Out St-Denis and Diaz. While it will most definately be an upgrade over Fred, people might find that Diaz was not THAT bad after all. Especially the ones who think that Campoli is some kind of saviour. Same guy who had no freakin job September 24th.....
C'mon, you of all people know better than that.

Campoli got 2.5 mil/year from arbitration in late July, and Chicago decided to walk away (they have little cap rrom), leaving him without a contract one month into free agency season. At that point, it was pretty obvious that he'd have to wait for an opening on a struggling team during the season, or as was the case here, a team hit by multiple injuries and a few question marks.

Campoli's not the saviour we're still waiting for (the 5.75 Million Dollar Man), but he's a decent puck-moving d-man that should have some impact once he's in the lineup.

I dont want to sound flippant but in order for a D Man to score, shouldnt they be inside of the blue line in support of the forwards?

Defense first!!!!!!!

he doesnt score either what 4 goals last season- 5 the season before that and 5 the season before that- thats nothing same with spacekhe has no O either- really the 2 are not offensive Dmen anymore- give Yemelin more time on the PP- he looked decent out there for the first time ever in a reg NHL game

Plekanec, Subban and Kostitsyn are all better choice than Cammalleri at this point in the SO.

I love the way Desharnais is playing, but he isn't a goal scorer and I didn't liked his last two try.

It was also so obvious that Pacioretty was going to shot the same way he always do.

Cammalleri effort on the shootout was just garbage, I won't say that he missed on purpose, because I can't prove it, but it kinda looked like he couldn't care less and he had something else to do real fast.

Its a myth.

If you repeat a story enough times, it becomes legend or at least accepted as close to truth.

In all honesty, Martin's defensive system is simply code for passive defense and not attacking the puck with aggressive play.

Boston plays defensive hockey. Montreal plays passive hockey.

I thought Cammy missed the net on his SO chance but on the replay it looked like Lou got a piece of it.. I might be wrong though.

Carbo was the closest to speak intelligently in French.
Demers , Julien, Martin, Therrien.....all of them spoke French like morons.
What about Vigneault?

I said it on the second page of the GDT; if we attempted to hold a lead, odds were we lost. Vancouver is a monster in the third period and once again it showed. The fact we were up 3-0 and basically trapped, despite the push back from the Canucks, speaks volumes to how horrendous boxing in an early lead is, yet Martin adores it. Just a terrible third period, OT and eventual shootout. Our powerplay as reached the point of helping the opposition, not even as a momentum killer but with the enormous odd man rushes, along with shorthanded goals we allow; most in the league now. Martin is predictable and I have to believe the only reason he still has a job is so we can drop in the standings.

Cammalleri has either given up or hurt. He is so damn invisible nowadays, you'd think he wasn't even on the ice. So many fanned attempts or bails on play. Just appalling how our supposed premium goal scorer is worthless. Then again that is the problem, Cammalleri was never a front line impact player in the season but a quiet secondary sniper who could get hot.

Martin is too busy doing his "research" in his notebook

in the GDT, some canucks fan were saying that the canucks always come out of the gate weak as hell but come out guns blazing in the third.

also, does anybody else see the idiocy of blaming the coach for players missing their shots in the shootout?

Vigneault's just trying some cheap tricks to boost his team...he knows exactly what the Ole chant means after having been Montreal's coach.
