You have to love the way the habs rebounded from a tough 2nd where Carolina was just killing us. So happy for Price though, he has 2 rough games and comes back with one of if not the best game of the season for him.
Solid game by Price. The first period was great, notably his save on Staal. It had been a long time since i had seen him challenge the shooter and make a big glove save. Saw a lot of action and kept the game close despite a weak 2nd goal.
Subban is amazing, wish we had signed him long term. If anyone is a sure thing on that team it's him.
Note to posters: Please stop calling for mid-season Gionta trades. How can the team justify trading a captain midseason when in first? Bad contract, fine, but think a bit. The weakest spots on the roster is the lack of a size/toughness/more varied option as the 6th/7th/8th defenceman, and ironically the 2 spots that were filled with Therrien's homies (4th line RW and #6 defenceman). Those are his guys so expect we'll live or die with them.
In the meantime the team has three really talented centres, a tough mother****ing (even point producing!) sherrif, will pick up Bourque and Diaz @ the deadline and we have the luxury of having a #1 defenceman in Subban/Markov on the ice for almost the entire game.
Bit of a shaky patch for the team but it should be smoothed over as these next 2 games are very winnable and all of a sudden the team's looking at a 3 game streak.. but when the time comes to make a roster move or two hopefully Bergevin doesn't tinker with it too much, your first "tinker" of moving Cole may not hurt too much as the East is laughably bad except for Boston/Pens/Devils.. have to wait a couple of weeks for a few Western conference teams to fall out of the race and that should give us a better idea of what players we can hope to bring in.. don't see anyone in the East wanting to help us/too many players from the bottom feeding clubs that are very interesting
Well to be fair... the haters have been pretty stupid.
There is a bunch of hardcore Price haters who have been pretty stupid, like a bunch of hardcore Price who have been pretty ********. So much Habs fans, of course there is gonna be some extremist mentally challenged ones. The Carey Price Suck forum is probably the biggest pool of hilarous ****** on the net.
