Well, that's what we get for playing the entire game in our end.

Who came out of this with any credit? Plex, PK, DD line for our only adventures into their zone, Gorges, Price, St-Denis for what his limited abilities were called upon to do, Emelin for trying to cover Campoli's garbage as usual play, Eller looked like he was trying...

Sending down Leblanc is a great idea. Man we need some wingers.

Worrisome we are able to generate nothing on o beyond that 1st line..nothing. Maybe Eller and Palushaj and Leblanc, but both those wingers need more time & confidence in the minors imo.

Campoli is absolutely unreal out there in his zone. Weber is playing himself off the team, he has plenty of chances and St-Denis frequently made him look like the lesser of the two.

We need wingers.

Need.

Wingers.

Honestly Bourque looks like he has never played the game before, he is always out of position and has zero ability to read or anticipate. Staubitz is better at seeing plays develop.

Not that Bourque is anything special, he's a limited scorer with no motivation, but every forward except for one line has sucked under Cunneyworth.
Cammalleri threw wimpy hits and lost puck battles.

Bourque rarely hits and doesnt even engage in puck battles. It evens itself out.

Ugh, loser point and sat through what may have been the worst NHL hockey game ever. Without internet to lament on the GDT.

Well, at least Boston lost the division lead.

The positives:

- Closer to a top pick
- Bruins almost out of a playoff spot
- Campoli showing how much we don't need him

If he can score back to back 27 goals season, he is definitely good enough.

Now he just don't care. Doesn't look like a guy that wants to play for this city at all.

What are the chances Beaulieu starts the next season on the big team?

It would depend on our off-season and if we draft, say, Murray. We can`t have a mostly rookie defense next year too.

He was doing this with Calgary early in the year. I guess he didnt want to play there either. He scored some there but his game wasnt anything to write home at the point either.

Agreed. Only 2 blocked shots away from tying the "all time blocked shots" by a player, per game. Something tell me he should have tried Goalie back in Timbits

Hard to imagine given how incredible both teams played this year. Really mindboggling huh?

Bourque has to be one of the worst passer we've had on the team for a long time.

Just when Campoli was showing glimpses of competency the last few games too. Maybe I should be saying mediocrity, but whenever he makes a decent play it really stands out

I'm so happy when Pleks gets the recognition he deserves.

That ******* point though.

I cannot see us not winning in regulation against the Isles. So depressing.

Dunno if you guys read the articles on HIO about both Cunneyworth and the players, as well as Burke saying there's no way they will tank even though they are aware of the draft situation. I believe RC and the Habs players. Not Burke so much.

Where is the horrible luck we've had all season?

Also, I cannot believe Ottawa is going to have the division lead. They are pathetic and haven't impressed me at all. Eller must have messed up Karlsson's head, cuz he sucked tonight.

PS. Campoli is our MVP (for the tank). We should be lauding his work.

Some people think still think the Habs can sink nearly to rock bottom. The problem is, the Habs are more buoyant than most of the other teams below the eighth place cutoff mark. The tankards watch enviously as the Habs' rivals for a lottery pick submerge deeper and deeper. We know the #1 and 2 picks are already out of reach. Soon the #3, 4, 5, and 6 picks will be unattainable as the remaining games dwindle. It makes me regret that the Habs won't be in the playoffs.

Sure, but to be fair, he was on pace for 28G in CGY.

He's been crappy though, no question about it.
