Darche should be a 4th liner, nothing more.

And keeping Kostitsyn with Gomez is ridiculous. That pairing has never worked.
I don't have a problem with Darche staying with us as long as he...

A) Plays on the fourth

B) Plays less than 10 minutes a game.

I don't get the ****ing love fest by all the coaches here..it makes no sense.

When people on Hfboards are smarter than our coaches...you have to wonder.

Randy is coaching this team like a man who knows he won't be back next season.

Come on, all 3 goals were deflected...they got pucks to the net, and we didn't...don't blame Price on this game...

I wasn`t aware Canadiens employed screens or attempted deflections today. Thank you for your input.

I'm starting to think that some people in here are doing this on purpose. We keep hearing how l'ANTICHAMBRE said while sometimes it's 1 guy, and this 1 guy is misquoted, said something else or never said what people are reporting. I read once that Michel Bergeron bashed Andrei Kostitsyn, while if there is 1 guy who kept defending him, it was Bergeron.

Those guys aren't the brightest. Not a whole lot of our journalists are. Yet, there's a limit to invent stuff.

Once upon a time, I felt bad for Randy Cunneyworth.

But now I came to the conclusion that he's just bad.

To be fair, the guy has been placed with Plek and Gomez most of the time, and then we had the brilliance of switching Gomez with Darche. RC is trying to use them as a 3rd line. He also barely got to play on the PP.

Yes, he's been disappointing, but I'm realistic enough to know that sometimes, players don't match. Plek-Bourque just isn't clicking all that much, yet he has never been changed. Maybe adding another good player would help, but that hasn't even happened, only Gomez and Darche.

To be fair Carbo said it but in a lapsus (don't know how you say it in english) and then corrected quickly.

So there is a little part of truth in what he said.

They said that it's not normal to see him being used so much. Who's blind here?

As dumb as they are on that panel, you're right. Some people here either invent or simply don't understand french enough. I remember reading here that Bergeron was bashing AK when he was in fact defending him.

One thing though, I can't believe Carbo ever had a head coaching job in the NHL. Maybe it's just his demeanor on TV, but man, the way he communicates is just bad bad bad.

4th line center who can't do **** for 7 million a year. Wow this has fail and more fail. Add Kabs and his stupid contract and PG should have been gone long ago.

Geoff Molson has turned this franchise into one of the biggest jokes in a year. Hope he is proud.

No. He just coached this game like someone who was afraid to lose.

It's worst.

Way too much respect for the Devils by the Habs. You can see just by the post-game interview by Cunney that the Habs have an inferiority complex against them.

I'm pretty sure they started the game with a negative attitude.

Problem is that you would have thought that Bourque WOULD have been something that would help Pleks. DD has his big guys around him, you'd think Pleks would need his big guys as well. But that's not conclusive yet by far. And mainly Bourque DOES NOT seem to have a great work ethic. It is scary that me might have to endure him for all those years if he doesn't pick it up next year. 'Cause people could say he's tradeable due to not making a lot of money, yet, some will be hesitant considering the number of years left. As of now, let's hope we fix him up. But it's not looking that good RIGHT NOW. Yet, things can change.

Maybe he just doesnt match with who he has been playing with however this is exactly what ive saw from him as a flame. Being from the West, probably see him 30 times a year including a lot this year. This is why flames fans were so happy to be rid of him.

If he was working hard and things just didnt work id believe that. Its hard to use the chemistry excuse when the guy is barely trying out there.

My thought is the Habs have a flu bug thru the line-up,sure sounded like Subban was sick and Cole had to leave the bench three times throwing up maybe.Players and coaches can't change the fact their team is under the weather so to speak.

The truth sometimes hurts

Listen, I've been watching hockey before many of you were thought of. I'm not pretending to be stupid enough to blame this loss on Price. This game aside, I do however believe he is overated. He is technically very sound and looks very good on the ice, but he just hasn't warranted his reputation and been the shut down goalie he needs to be on a consistent basis. Also his mental toughness is still very suspect. I agree with many of you regulars on here as to what the biggest problems with the team are (and I know goaltending isn't one of them), but watching Brodeur tonight, it struck me that Price is not even in the same category!

That's pretty hypocritical for a guy who loved to play Mathieu Dandenault on the first line.
