No way we come close to winning this game with Budaj in net, and with Darche playing major minutes for us. Right there tells you everything you need to know about the Habs depth - or lack thereof. Darche is no where near making the roster of the Bruins, Sharks, Hawks, Wings, Flyers, Pens, Canucks et al. nevermind playing nearly 20 minutes in a game. Brutal.
Could have sworn I posted 8-1 Habs... goal scored by Chicago early as well as a 2nd then disallowed goal. Habs storm back in the 2nd and 3rd to kill it 8-1... maybe I'm in the wrong thread or maybe a mod felt it was a jinx
I want to defend you Randy but I can't defend incompetence. Emelin > Kaberle, Weber, Diaz, Gill, Campoli.
I'm giving Randy a pass on the lineups until after the Christmas break, he needs to get settled into his role as coach and I'm sure he has more than a few tweaks to take care of before he gets into his groove.
Not every coach can land the head job and immediately turn the team around like Hitchcock can, we just have to hope that he plays to the team's strength's more than Martin did and that he helps us long term.
