It feels good to win, but this team has some real issues with their defensive play, particularly the transitions. What this team is best at is also what this team is the worst at when it comes to defending it. It could lead to a slump soon. Certainly, this type of game won't fly when the playoffs come around.

I've been noticing it for a while, but the habs have generally been getting away with it.

Ha! It's true. His one liners are moving in the right direction. See everyone! You can learn to love YOUR Habs!


BTW, the Bush reference was hilarious. Literally LOLd (I do NOT use LOL lightly!)

Kay. Then did I misinterpret that you suggested fan voting is dumb? Or at least irrelevant? If not, perhaps you're not expressing what you actually mean.

Don't care for your opinions tonight, but I figure during a playoff game watching a game on a big screen we'd find some unity.

I dont hate Gionta, but he looks to be on the downside. In his earlier days, he was alot like Gallagher in that he won more board battles, and got his nose dirty quite often. He's lost some of that, but he's still a smart player. I guess you have to be after being groomed in the devils organization.

effectively, I'm not is biggest fan, doesn't mean I think he suck. Isn't there a middle? I'm just not conviced that he can be a dominant goaltender on a regular basis, in my opinion, he hasn't proved himself over a long enough period yet. That's why I think we are putting in the "superstar" category too fast. The HUGE contract at 25 years old and the status of "elite top 3 keeper" is a hell lot of pressure, look what happened with Theodore.

Of course I hope the dude success, why wouldn't I, if he doesn't, the Habs have no chance of winning the cup. I hope he make me eats crow in the future, but I don't see how not jumping in the "OMG best goalie of the league" wagon is making me a troll.

Tonight, he was awwwwful. Looked so slow, confused and just unable to do anything right. He was likely benched because he was a liability. MT pretty much said that right at the end of his PC (or at least the one Antichambre showed).

Looking for him to put up some goals in Tbay.
Ok thanks! During the second I felt the entire team was struggling and had trouble singling out anyone for their play. Hopefully he picks it up soon.

I wouldn't have a problem with that.

BTW, I have not watched the game but is it just me or the only guys Therrien played in the third were Chucky, Eller and Prust? The few times I caught the game was in the third and every times they were the only three Habs forward on the ice, I was not sure If I was seeing things. It felt like Therrien was only confident in these three guys to make any plays.

They played more than they normally do, but the majority of the minutes still went to Plek's and DD's line. Moen got bumped up to 1st line, Ryder and the rest of the 4th sat the 3rd period.

This crow tastes good.

Thank you Price for stealing a game after those two poor showings. I knew you had it in you. Let's see more play like this from Price.

No way this team wins this one without Price in net.

Glad to see this. Carey seems to be sharper when opponents are buzzing and firing away.

Good win despite terrible defense. Price was awesome, which should at least silence the critics for a couple days. Eller, Prust and Galchenyuk had their best game of the season. Eller is really maturing nicely and turning into a hell of a player.

I can't believe this thread deteriorated into a debate of Price's value.

Like it or not Price is one of the top goalies in the world. Learn to accept it.

His problem is when he's great he doesn't look flashy like Tim Thomas or Rinnie. This is very similar to Dryden vs Vachon. Both were excellent goalies but Dryden was just a little better but he didn't look flashy like Vachon did. Dryden was mostly positioning, angles and anticipation. Vachon was all reflexes and looked spectacular making his moves.

That's the problem with Price. He doesn't look flashy when he makes his saves so the haters don't realize how good he is.

I wouldnt get your hopes too high on silencing these gumps. Most of them are just saying tonight was a solid game. Solid.... where is Chris Berman when you need him.

MODS! Please ban the word 'haters' from this board. No one, not one Habs fan, 'hates' Price, and we're ****ing inundated with kids using the term 'haters'. Please try to control this. It is really ****ing irritating. It is just not on.

I am trying to get the reference to the 3 stars in the thread title? OP?

I get Bouillon, fore the mere fact that he got Dwyer to run with his tail between his legs just by talking to him. Gionta?

Almost as annoying as people calling others 'kids' to pump themselves up. Almost.

And if anyone missed it, this is the most revealing thing I took away from the GDT last night:

- habs defense is suspect at best. Pk is getting better and better, but markov is dangerously going down. A d-man would be better welcomed at the deadline than all the Clowe of the world.

- Prust is an amazing signing!

- Put ward in net, add a healthy tuomo ruttu and a top 4 d-man, and Carolina becomes one of the best team in the conference. Eric Staal is a beast.
I agree, We are a better team with Cole in line up, I honestly believe he was just about to get going, his last couple games as a hab were pretty great. I understand that his 4.5mill/year for 2 more years is pretty nice to get rid of, but the way this team is playing it would have been nice to have his energy and size in the playoffs. No offense to Ryder but if he doesn't give it 110% I have a feeling MT will get fed up fast.

What does 'Yress" from the Gaston Therrien meme mean ?

I barely speak French, so slang is hard to get.

It's Québecer for "Il reste une chose" which basically means "one last thing..."

It's kind of a French turn of phrase.
