I hope PK was watching.
Agreed. And if the team can sign Subban to replace Kaberle and next year replace the Cube with Tinordi...

Gorges-Subban
Markov-Emelin
Tinordi-Diaz

Is a nice mix of veterans and youth, offensive and defensive players and plenty of physicality.

Man Therrien looks like a good player coach. I like his passion. I would love to get drunk with him. So different from the boring ass Martin.

I would like to see Eller get some centre time on the second wing, either give him decent wingers or make him a winger!

The entire DD looks not up to par though they had quite a few chances that didn't materialize. DD made a nice play that provoked one of Markov's goal. And he had a few other nice passes that didn't materialize. But somehow, I guess that the same who hates Therrien, are the same who hates DD and Bouillon....Go figure....
I don't think it's about hate. It's more about fairness.. The kid is sitting in the stand while he need's confidence.

He won't. He just won 4-1.

But yeah, they both played terrible tonight. Desharnais passes were sloppy and slow as hell. It's your force kid, do it right.

Let's drop the negative tonight. It was a great game. I can't remember last time I saw the Habs play as a team like they did tonight.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Eller sit again. That's one of the better game I've seen this team play in years. Especially with the physical aspect.
Maybe Armstrong out, Eller in?

Diaz on the point of the 1st unit was a very nice adjustment.

Desharnais line still not clicking like it did last year.

Good game by the Gally's. Prust was a force, the way he played tonight he's probably only 500-700 K overpaid.
I agree almost completely but I need to add a comment regarding "...Desharnais line still not clicking like it did last year..."

Our first line had its chances; they are working hard. I especially liked Desharnais winning his 1 vs 1 battle against 6’3” Smithson. That play kept the puck in FLO’s territory and led to Markov’s first goal.

We need White on 4th. I did not like the team’s indiscipline but coming to the defence of Gorges was not indiscipline... it was a necessity. Passion > Lukewarm, Therrien > Martin, White > Pyatt.

Bourque, Plekanec and Gionta are a legit second line. They have speed, sound two ways play and they are (so far so good for Bourque) low maintenance vets. I also don’t expect them to pout if Therrien feels the need to boost the confidence of the two rooks by giving them PP time.

He might be in a bit over his head, but damn it, he works hard as hell. Top work ethics.
You can’t blame Bouillon for Subban’s decision (or Bergevin's) to stay in Toronto. I don’t think that giving him 20+ minutes per game is a viable solution but tonight he was solid. Him, Diaz (great), Emelin (good) are holding the fort/picking up the slack due to Subban's absence.

Well...

Gallagher is feisty and speedy; I hope he stays in Montreal.

Markov and Price are our best players.

Pas l’temps de niaiser!

And as if a coach, any coach, would sit vets like they sit kids. Not happening.
He actually got a point on that play too.

The whole first line (including Patches) have been having it rough, but I still hope they Therrien keeps going back.

If they get going and our other lines can KEEP going.. we have a team that CAN compete.

Yet, people keeps bashing Bouillon who frankly was fine today. But he plays on PP2. And then it's the "sit game" while Therrien only want to get his message through. And Eller needs to understand it. And so are the others. And then people go on thinking Therrien will apply it to vets? In his 2nd or 3rd game? This is pure hatred based on total nonsense. And posters, like you, are MUCH better than that.

Don't worry, I will be on his case in due time. But now? Come on.

The assist DD got was more intense than Eller was all game. I love Eller though and hate to see him sitting.

Sitting Eller also sends an indirect message to Subban. Nothing and no one is set in stone.

I believe, I hope that he will have it. Don't worry, I'm the biggest confidence preacher. So the organizaiton will HAVE to give it to Eller or I'll be mad as hell. But it is just the start of the year.

Had no real problems tonight. Panthers looked horrible, Habs looked good. I'm curious about what we'll look like against teams like the Pens. I'm not saying that in a pessimistic kind of way either, I'm legitimately curious about our response. Therrien looks crazy uncomfortable and nervous with the media in his post-game pressers. I guess he's just as nervous as the fans are!

Hope we can beat the caps on thursday!!

I'd sit DD next game, put Pleks on the #1 line and Eller on the #2. DD has been poor. Gally deserves the #3 spot next game after tonight.

What assist? I don't remember seeing him get an assist. Maybe it was a 2nd assist and I missed it.

Anyway, I don't hate Desharnais. In his defence, Pacioretty is not playing that well and Cole is slow to start.

I just wanna see my boy Eller get some ice time with good forwards.

Hmm... probably. Makes more sense to stick him on the sideline if we know Gallagher is going to get the full look before decisions are made, for example. Moen had a moment or two out there, but I don't know if he has made a better case for himself so far than Armstrong, if I'm honest. Obviously has the nod as an incumbent vet, but...

our pk got better as the game went along. little rocky in the first, but if there's an area that needs practice it's the pk.

couldn't ask more from price, our the bottom 6 tonight. thought our d played excellent top to bottom.

don't know who sits when pk is back?

kaberle? boullion? I don't want the other 4 to go anywhere and I'll be highly upset if it's emelin. the guy brings a lot to the team, and a skill set nobody else has.

habs are good at finding random talent. diaz looks like a good 4-5 guy, with pp time. maybe a bit more in time, who knows.

good job habs.

We go from a no emotion coach in Martin to a guy that might have too much. Did anyone see therrien yelling at Upshall "what the f u looking at" after the White fight, and saying "f me" to the ref twice, man that was funny. But seriously overall he seems calm, and liked that he waited to hi5 all the players before going to the room.

Looked at the ice time, everyone on d played well, specially Bouillon and Daiz, and I like that they sheltered Kaberke mins, got like 12 min mainly on the pp.

Also that MT gave the young guys some pp time late in the game.

Plus we haven't given up an even strengthen goal against yet, D is doing a pretty good job, could be even better with Subban

That's why I like it has a coach right now. He's good with players and our players need that. Martin was pretty much a army general, is force was strategies. MT is lacking on this side but he's a damn good motivator.

Still.. He need's to play ... We have a big raw talented center with awesome work ethic.. And we sit him... Atleast put him on the wing even if i'm not liking that.
