I didn't say Bouillon was the reason we lost. I am just saying why even bother with the guy. He makes me nervous out there. Give someone else a chance. Bouillon has had his better days.

Yeah, sadly they also count all those next to the net push that he does..
I'm talking real slot, hard and precise shot.

Eller was on the PK. Good change.
I can agree with all that. I just texted a friend to re-unite the gorges-subban pairing.

Only thing I'm not sure on is where you're putting Eller. If you want that line to be better at ES, I would assume you're putting Galchenyuk back on the wing?

Anyway it was a good game. We're gonna bounce back.
he had a ****ing appendectomy a week ago. our fan base is nuts

Our defense looked really soft and timid tonight, almost scared...with the exception of PK.

Rask played well but I'm not going to lie, your boys scared the **** outta me in the first period. Invoked fear I haven't felt a while. Please don't make a habit out of it. Nice game boys.

Sincerely, your neighborhood Habs hater.

Personaly I don't mind sitting Cole but we rarely see something like that in the NHL. I think if the coach wants to punish him, he'll probably put him on a lower line.

I have yet to remember a play where he completely messed up or any reason he gave anyone to feel nervous with the puck. Not the biggest fan of the signing, but he's been surprising to say the least, so far.

Next 3 out of 4 games are a big tell tale sign of where this team really is as they are on the road.

I was just about to mention that. After seeing what that experience did to my dad, I have a lot of patience for him. Granted, my dad's had already burst/started bursting.

Just wanted to add one thing, and I say this as a true Habs fan through and through...but that penalty to Krejci was an absolute joke of a call...

I'm not really one to complain about our team getting a call in our favour, but c'mon.

Eller on wing probably. Maybe him at center for d zone draws. Eller is OK on wing IMO if he gets a few games to adapt. That`s the only move available to make that line better. This isn`t a necessary move, but could be something to try.

Otherwise, just keep things as is, maybe swap Armstrong for White. Habs just went toe to toe with the best or 2nd best team in the East and looked entirely equal with them. There isn`t any big problem here.

and so was the call against boston with 37 seconds left. And the same goes for about 3 or 4 calls a game this yr in the entire NHL every single game. So whatever

Lines if it was me coaching tomorrow:

Bourque-Plekanec-Gionta
Pacioretty-Eller-Cole
Prust-Galchenyuk-Gallagher
Moen-White-Armstrong

Markov-Emelin
Subban-Gorges
Bouillon-Diaz

Its time DD sits one out. He is absolutely terrible, despite his weekend performance. Subban needs more minutes, time to put him on second pairing with Gorges.

....And if Cole sucks dirt tomorrow, I'd demote him to 3rd line. I know he is a slow starter but at least LOOK like your freakin interested!

and also...some people were saying that the PP wasn;t where it should be, but keep in mind that boston has the 2nd ranked PK in the NHL. so..ya know...to get one is good....we just didn`t capitalize...chinup people..this one teeny tiny loss doesn`t change anything...we`re headed in the right direction...just feels like a huge loss cause its boston, but its not. the best thing for a team when they suffer a close loss is to jump right back up there...and fortunately enough we get the sabres tomorrow.

No excuses buddy Even the games before his operation he wasn't doing much. All i'm saying is that he deserves some little heat too. Nonetheless I'm sure his old game will come back soon.

Emelin should sit one out too, looked awful. Diaz was lucky to get out of his own zone tonight wtf?

Emelin, Diaz and Boullion can barely carry the puck, they kill almost all momentum on the transition.

Yea that was kinda a sign that this game wasn't going to go our way. I still laughed though.
