I hope our young guys get as much ice time as possible.

We're not gonna get a playoff spot and it's in our best interests to continue to lose (unfortunately). So I'd like to see our rookies playing in every position.

Not written on the stat sheet.

Keep Staubitz!

He's already done more for this team this season in one game than Palushaj, Nokie, Campoli, Enqvist and even Gomez have provided.

Emelin is such a treat to watch, Gorges and Emelin are our top D. Just a bit disappointing that he can't fight. Still....love him!

He had some nice rushes but let's not exaggerate. Cole was our best forward tonight.

Jesus H that is hard to watch. Not much going on, Staubitz did whatever, Eller looked alright, PK as usual great to watch...DD line good...err...wow, this sucks.

May we never have to do this again, hard to stomach. Not much in the way of entertainment.

Anyone think RC is tanking or just playing it best he knows how?

Eller made some nice plays and when he was the PP he gained the zone Gomer as usual would make a pass to the other team

I finally realises why we're paying Gomez so much. He's like the Maestro of Tanking. He's earning his salary.

Precisely why PG and/or Molson had that team tank, if any one of Pearn/JM/PG/Molson scouted Grigorenko personally.

Cole is a horse, I am really impressed with him. That being said I kind of expected this out of him he's been a model of consistency, I just wanted to give Eller some extra props because he showed his potential in this game. I'm really excited about what he could become for us. And then I dream about drafting Grigorenko or Galchenyuk.... *drool*

I thought Palushaj was having his best game as a Habs until that long period of time where he didn't see any ice time, came back as average again.

Geoffrion needs to get involved more physically, was decent tonight.

Yep, real good fans; cheering for your team to lose??? Whatever happened to the mighty Hab fanbase?? Yes, a nice top 5 pick is nice but the way you guys go about it!! And don't put your money on the Russian kid Gregenko{SP}..KHL already has a bonus cheque and a 12 yr contract waiting for him!!

Giving 4 pts to the Florida teams while avoiding taking any ourselves was a major victory in the Tank wars. 2nd last is within out grasp. With Yakupov being the consensus #1, t's actually quite likely that the Habs get to draft either the best center or the best D of the class. Make that choice correctly, and even a soft draft year can yield an exceptional player, the kind of guy you can build around. The thing is, it's all about who you pick. Right now, the idea of getting to pick #2 and taking a big center with world beating potential is hard to resist. Even if he turns into Yashin, look what Ottawa got for moving him at the right time.

GO EDMONTON! GO TANK! Say what you will the Habs are showing they know how to lose. Give them a lead, they'll blow it. Field a minor-league roster, we'll match it. Punch us in the face, we'll lie down, take the penalty and not score. This team is earning it's way to the bottom the sure-fire way: incompetent GM, rookie coach with no support, and above all ****** talent on the ice. We got a shot at #2.

Neither Toronto nor Montreal has actually picked, developed and established a legit top-3 pick on their own team in decades. This is the year.

L'AC discussing Emelin/Malone... no one seems to be aware that he can't fight.
