The real test is next week.
The 2 wins are nice but they were against 2 teams that struggle a lot on the road.

They play the Blues at home and the Bruins on the road.
If they win those I think we'll start believing in the possibility to salvage this season.

They too have had their injuries, only time will tell.
Boucher lost in the semi-final in his one AHL season against a team the Bulldogs should have beaten. He even got Subban back for Game 7.

That being said, I think Blunden is a meh 13th forward. Better than having a guy who will probably never play an nhl game I guess.
With 7 Defensemen dressed, Blunden is one of our top 11 forwards.

They need to go .670 the rest of the way to get to 94, which is Toronto's point pace. .670 would put them third in the NHL. The Habs are good, but they are not THAT good.

Winning in 2012 is fun, but it's most likely futile. Firing Martin and replacing him with Cunneyworth has already shot the season. Even if Cunneyworth somehow turns into a good coach from here on out, that ham-fisted usage that led to the 1-6 record to close out December sank the team.

It's unfortunate, because the Habs are actually a pretty good team. Injuries and all, they've managed to outscore their opponents on aggregate outside of empty-net situations. Despite a PP that's been ridiculously unable to finish, this supposedly talented bunch who can't score just inched their way into the top half of league scoring. Their goals against remains respectable despite the defensive gong shows we've seen immediately following the coaching change.

What might have been. A shame.
Sorry, but this is where your math isn't going to help you. See you in the playoffs.

I should have said it before this game as it will seem I'm just saying this from him scoring, but I think the habs should keep Blunden. From what I've seen he's been a great 4th liner.
Agreed, how can you not sign ak now...and im leaning on moen too

I thougt blunden should of made the team from training camp, he really stood out to me as the perfect fourth liner.

we will never know. the team looked completely out of sorts at that time. Tho i am sure you will just throw out stats to say how great they were playing despite the losses.

the game is played on the ice which transfers to points in the standings. I dont give a rats ass about the "they should be better cause the stats say so." At the end, the standings are the stats the rule out any puck possession, scoring chances, shots, etc stats.

I'm happy with the way they're playing. Well, for the most part, but I have zero hope of post-season. Actually I think it's useless. They simply aren't good enough to beat contenders.

Well, the habs have to go for the playoffs. I know we all dream about Grigorenko playing 3rd line C here next year, I know I do. But to be honest, lots of players within the first round have the potential to be offensive impact players at the next level. With Galchenyuk's injury, he might fall to where we drafted last year. If not, one of Gaunce or Girgensons will be kicking around. If not, there's still Hertl and Faksa who project as 1b centermen. If ALL those are gone...there's STILL guys like Zharkov and Slepyshev. And if all those guys are gone, well, **** it, it means someone like Trouba or Ceci fell to a playoff team.

Either the habs suck **** ala 2009-2010 Oilers and we go out and get Grigorenko, or we kick some ass all the way home and we land where we land.

In this draft, I think finishing with the 8th pick is in no way better than finishing with the 18th pick. There's a few guys who are clearly ahead of the pack, but the rest of the pack is very, very good.

It was nice hearing a coach praising his young players after a game. Does a lot for their confidence. I was mad after the Eller/Subban benching but it's nice to see it was more of a one-time wake-up call thing than a blaming them thing.

Crimson. just curious why your saying everyone should high 5 the protesters? I have no idea what they were protesting about but if it was because Cunneyworth does not speak French I would say everyone leaving should punch the protesters in the nut sack.

There is also a silver lining if we continue to make a big push and that is that our young players like Eller, Emelin, Diaz and so forth who are showing great strides right now will pick up more confidence down the road and should be able to make an even bigger impact next season. Always draw on the positives. That's how I look at it.

They can beat anyone on their day but at this point it would take a miracle to make the playoffs.

It's hard to encourage tanking when they play like this though.

Martin's system is great when you're playing with the redline. I was reluctant to believe a change in the system would help, it does, it absolutely does, it is night and day out there. This team looks like they're having fun and enjoying themselves, something I didn't see much of with Martin.

It's good to be back, I'm finally excited to watch the habs again. Been a boring couple years of hockey, but I'm actually looking forward to watching the next game, been tough seeing the same ****ing style every night, after night. god, it was like a prison sentence.

hockey is back!!

They had one regulation loss in December. They would have had more wins if they could win a bleeping shootout, of course, but they had managed 9 points in 7 games nonetheheless, and didn't lose by more than a goal.

But they looked "out of sorts", apparently. Call me weird, but I thought the team looked a lot more out of sorts to me when Chicago and Winnipeg pasted them than at any point in December.
