Toxic environment on the team is gone.. but among the fans...

GET BEHIND YOUR TEAM PEOPLE..

Habs on a winning streak - playing a weaker opponent: bad feeling
Habs on a losing streak - playing a stronger team: bad feeling

There's no logic to this other than a losing logic... like come on.. get behind your team, get behind yourself.. become a champion.

The fans have learned to loose. Like MT says, we need to learn to win.

Chills all over my back.

Let's see how Therrien keeps his guys motivated. This is a very winnable game, but the Islanders has had some ups and downs this season. They need to come out flying at home and set the tempo early.

Except "Staple gun", which is defined somewhat differently.

When we lose a game it's because we haven't tries hard enough as an fan! Mommy told me so! We are trying really hard this year, this is why we win!!!
It's more like.. as a fan we have two options:

Enjoy your team
Don't enjoy your team

When your team is winning and you don't enjoy it what's the point of being a fan?

Only way we lose this is if Nabovov stands on his head.

I don't think it's a losing logic. Letdown games when facing a lesser team happen in this sport when a team is coming off a few big wins. And this has the potential to be one.

I heard they have a guy named Tavares who's pretty good.

Only way they win is if (like every other Isles game) he pots in 1-2 goals and 1-2 assist. Guy is amazing, but its sad for him.

There's a thing called realism, sometimes some fans like to take off the blinders and assess a situation for what it actually is. There is nothing wrong from a fan's perspective to say this has the potential to be a bad game, because quite frankly it's been proven over and over again statistically that this sort of thing happens.

How I feel about my teams chances of winning does not reflect their performance on any level what so ever. Their chances of winning are still favorable, as long as they show up to the game and that's on them.

I think that this team is one tough and big top 4 D away from being a really good team... as in Contenders! Even without this big D, our team competes and executes the game plan almost every night. The depth and mix of players are solid.

Where am I going with this incessant blabla?

Tonight’s game should be, must be, an easy win.

I still think they are a top 4 D, a top 6 forward, and a bottom 6 forward away.

After tonight Montreal plays 11 of the next 15 games on the road.....We will see what this team is made of.
I hope I'm wrong but I don't see Montreal as a top three team in the conference but more of a 6 7 8 team.

Yes the NYI have been bad. Yes they have only won 2 games in the month of February. But that being said this is still a professional hockey team, and I do not believe for a moment that MT will allow his players to think the way a lot of the fans in this thread.

I think scoring the first goal and keeping pressure on them will help us win. They are terrible 5 on 5, but are top 10 on both PP and PK. Let's hope they don't get a quick lucky bounce and we should be victor in this one.

Not sure if this was posted anywhere, but i heard on CJAD that Gally practiced with the team today ( full contact ) and will probably play on Saturday vs the Rags.

I'm more scared about this game than the NYR ones. NYI has played some very good games this year and some really bad ones too. If we take them lightly we will probably lose.

This is one of the most important things mentioned in this thread, especially for all the one waving around their pom poms.

I have no problem with optimism, nor pessimism for that matter. It seems this board is either one or the other almost all the time. Anyone who tries to evaluate the situation from outside the homer fan perspective at either given time is either labelled as having a loser mentality for thinking the team might lose when the team is currently winning and is labelled a homer or fan boy if they think the team can win when it's currently losing.

If we can walk out of that 15 game stretch with a .500-ish record I'll be very content with the stretch.
