Armstrong and Moen are big ******* letting a smaller 6' Prust to fend all for himself.

Where are all those folks who still think a bigger guy isn't needed to play the Leafs, Bruins and Flyers of this world? Tomas could have had his knee blown out on that play.

Moen and Armstrong have been useless so far this season. Prust is all alone when it comes to standing up for the team. WTH

Prust doesnt seem to have any problems responding, Moen and Armstrong on the other hand...

the last guy who fought Orr on the Habs was in the line-up, and he'S 5'8...

if a guy like Cube has the balls to go against goons like Orr, I really dont see why Moen and Armstrong wouldnt go from time to time.

Losing to the Bruins, Sabres, and Leafs in a 5 day span may open the floodgates I'm afraid.

Armstrong can't fight for the life of him. He got pounded by Seidenberg last year versus the Bruins and was molested by Eager. Hes just not the Armstrong people remember in Pittsburgh and Atlanta.

Get me a heavyweight who can help score or get points and also fight. Not a guy who is going to take a roster spot and sit on the bench for 53 minutes.

Can't believe we fell with this "we're so tough now".....Moen not wanting to be tough anymore....Armstrong was never really tough to begin with. Our tough guy is a 6'0'' full of heart but that doesn't scare anybody. And our only nutcase is in the stands 'cause he's too dangerous for his own team.....or supposed to be. Add the agitators that are Subban and Gallagher, the first who's a terrble fighter, the other that will do his best but is 5'8''. Add Emelin who is a great hitter but can never fight anymore because of his injury.

We're actually tough on paper. It's on the ice that it's way more complicated.

I don't know why anybody thinks Armstrong can fight, either. His fight card is probably the saddest one I've ever seen (loss to Fedotenko, draw with Comrie, Seidenberg pounding, etc.) He's pretty much a grinder that's capable of throwing a massive hit now and again.

Moen should be embarrassed. There is no way that he should have come out of this game with clean hands while guys like Gallagher and Gorges ended up fighting.

Pretty much.

Excellent analysis.

I sort of like that Therrien thought he was this severe school master punishing White and it came to bite him in the butt.

A 1st liner and a Norris trophy winner didn't want to lose 5 minutes of their time with a goon? Really? How surprising.

Thornton fought him.

The thing about Armstrong is that he never was a fighter but at least in the past he was a pest, a **** disturber, remember the huge hit he threw against Saku Koivu back in the day?

not only about fights, neither him or Moen were throwing their weight around... same for Cole (even though he isnt a grinder) who has the size and strenght to send a player overboard...

Problem is, our 4th line guys are terrible anyways. At least give me someone who will actually do his job.

Cole doesn't and never had an edge. That's why Gauthier and Martin went to get him, he's their ideal player. Cole's whole game is taking the puck and forcing his way to the net. With his size and strength, he doesn't even hit other players when the opportunity is there.

Embarrassed, beaten up and laughed at by the opposition tonight. Sickened by that display of gutlessness by the Habs tonight in their own rink.

I didn't want a figher 'cause he'd be a waste of space. Well waste of space for waste of space....bring in a fighter. I'm done with Armstrong who's CLEARLY the player that Toronto didn't need to have. And I'm clsoe being done with Moen.
