Exactly because he is not fast, old guys from NJ tied him up nicely all game long.....SO WHAT you said? hahahaha.....you are a riot man!

LOL- it is amusing- i havnt wavered at all- this team needs to sell and need to fall in the standings - winning a few doesnt change it

The most frustrating thing about this season right now is that it seems like that last spot in the Eastern Conference is up for grabs and no one wants it. Every team in the race for eighth is losing (except for the Islanders). If Montreal could just pull off a real streak, they could be in there easily. I'm thinking it won't even take 90 points to make the playoffs in the east this year.

At the same time, a loss to New Jersey is to be expected. It's the blown lead earlier this week against Carolina that really stings.

Yeah, except for that time that he set up our only goal of the game...

In your own mind, do you take yourself very seriously?

Funny to read all the Campoli hate, as if he's the problem on this team.. lol

12 shots on goal after 2 periods? No , that isn't a problem at all.

The Habs should learn something from that...take more shots from the point, get big bodies in front and score some of these tough area goals, that is how the good teams score this time of year when the defense tightens up. see Detroit with Holmstom for past 15 years. Its an easy concept but the Habs don't do it, we have no one with that type of guts.

Pack it in from now on, play Budaj more and keep Markov the heck away from the team because there's no point in trying to win games any more. If there was one opportunity to make it, it just flew by.

If MaxPac scores 30+ and we draft in the top2-5 I will still be happy.

I like how the team is a bottom dweller yet the fans are surprised when the team plays poorly. Listen guys, I am no expert, but I think that bad teams tend to play poorly...

Might as well hope for MaxPac to stop scoring. He will be cheaper to sign next time around

Not to stir the pot but Martys best season across the board was 06-07

48 wins .920 sv% 2.18 GAA

That came playing behind.

Oduya
Lukowich
Martin
White
Fraser
Hale
Matvichuk
Alex Brooks
Greene

Yes Marty has benefited from stacked D but he's also proved he can put up great numbers playing behind a medicore D.

Sadly the last 2 years injuries really derailed the 1st part of his last 2 seasons. But last yr he was GREAT in the 2nd half and it seems a repeat performence of that is going on.

Anyway, good game last night the loss wasn't for a lack of effort that's for sure.

Always hard to watch the team lose, but if we aren't going to make the playoffs, we might aswell finish as low as possible. Having a top two pick and a chance at our first superstar forward since Guy Lafleur is pretty exciting, and may be the best way to turn this team around quickly.

You really believe Yakupov or Grigorenko have that much talent ? If it would be Hall, Seguin or RNH or McKinnon in a couple of years, I would say YES !

Anyway, top-two is impossible (unless the lottery pick would change that).

The fact of the matter is that Price has proven very little. So far ? One top 5 goalie season, one. And in the playoffs it's actually been worse. And people are ready to hand over the keys to the city ? I say wait.

Furthermore, goalies in this league are getting better and better. There's only 30 number one spots. There are a lot of amazing goalies out there for these 30 spots and the difference between the 5th one and the 20th one is not that big. They can even swap rankings on any given season depending on luck and how good the teams in front of them are.

Price is indeed quite overrated. He's not the invaluable cornerstone people make him out to be. Reminds me a lot of when everyone was gaga over Theodore for a good 2-3 years after his Hart/Vezina season despite the fact Theodore wasn't doing anything special (he actually sucked most of the time). The funny part is that Theodore had actually done something to warrant that much hype (multiple trophies) whereas Price hasn't. The accomplishments haven't been there.

When I hear people say we don't need to rebuild because we already have a superstar franchise player in Price I always raise an eyebrow because he isn't there yet and goalies are really fickle. It's incredibly hard to say if he ever will be. Thing is, for a goalie to have as big of an impact on his team as a true franchise dman or forward he has to be pretty special. The #6 best goalie in the NHL doesn't have the same impact that Weber, Malkin, Datsyuk, etc have on a team. To say we're fine because we have a franchise player in Price is a smoke screen really. For that to be true Price would have to be better than he is and start shutting the door when he's given leads. No I'm not saying it's his fault, but MVP franchise players carry the team on their back, they don't need help all the time. Price was doing it last season. Rarely allowed softies and he'd shut the door down when given leads. But he's not doing it this season. He's not as good as he was last season, no one will make me believe that (even when accounting for the team's play in front of him). And last season, Price didn't even get any trophies, wasn't even nominated for one which goes to show you how good the goalies in this league are. You have to be head and shoulders above the rest to make a huge impact on your team and be a franchise player. I just don't see Price in that light at all, not yet anyway.

Anyway, can't wait for parts of my post to be cherry picked and for Price fans to see red and misunderstand the whole post.
No need to explain much to a poster, known for long standing bias against price, who comes out and say "i told you so" the day after price's arguably worse game and disappears then after

I can't wait for you to cherry pick the next bad game that Carey Price plays for you to come out of hibernation and say "I told you so"

If anyone should hibernate it's those that dispense one liners propping up the 21st best goaltender in the league.

We`ve got a D that except for Gorges-Subban-Emelin often seems to be playing for the opposite team, we`ve got 1 good and consistent line on offence, we cannot score in a SO, we`ve got a mess upstairs and a newbie coach who will lose his job soon and he knows it, but it`s our goalies who are mainly guilty of this **********ed up season. Am I right?

Not according to a poll of hockey players in the NHL, Price is one of the top 5 goalies in the league, but what do hockey players know, people on these boards are the real experts

Yakupov has that much talent, Grigorenko isn't at the same level. It doesn't matter anyway since we won't get a shot at Yakupov.

You forgot that Desharnais and Darche suck. Desharnais is too small and we all hate him because he is playing with our two best forwards, he has absolutely nothing to do with them and we shouldn't give him any credit. Darche should be scratched because the coach is playing him too much and we are tired to see him in the interviews, he shouldn't even be allowed to speak french since he isn't a fan favourite...
