Ryder can only do so much before teams target him near exclusively, which has happened in our recent games. Subban and Plekanec are suffering similar difficulties due to our inconsistency and Therrien seems content to change nothing. Much as Price has been a fraction of the goalie we know on a given average, he is not why we are such a disaster lately. We need a bold change to light this team on fire.

Bourque - Plekanec - Ryder
Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Gallagher
Prust - Eller - Gionta
Moen - Halpern - Desharnias

If Prust is still out, then rotate DD or Moen in based on who is better.
Agreed on all counts.

Chantale Macchabée : You've been strong defensively all year, last 2 games were difficult, are you worried ?

What kind of question is that ? Who WOULDNT be worried ?

Jeez sport journalists are atrocious.
of course nobody has the guts to ask about DD on the pp

That is very unprofessional if it's really the case. The guy just signed the biggest contract of his whole carreer last Summer. WTF !

I dislike Moen so much right now that I'm tempted to buy him out instead of Kaberle....He's scared? Well fine...I hope the Habs are scared to give him his check.

Moen invited Simmonds to drop them but was rejected.

Big problem, Habs can buyout only one more player, and it was looking it would be Kaberle.

Although he would be an upgrade on everyone but Markov and Subban right now, just wish they had some grit on the back end.
The issue is that the team is playing no coherent defense. To much puck chasing, missing assignments, screening in their own zone when they should be clearing, ad nauseum.

It's not the end of the world of the world if they can work through it. Will give the team lots of confidence heading to the POs

As someone said, it does look that way. And if so we're carrying a passenger for the next 3 years.

I'd say buy him out but unfortunately MB gave that contract, would be a little silly to go ahead and buy him out a year later. Besides we have to buy out Kaberle.

Simmonds, Clarkson, Clowe to a lesser extent... and then there's better wingers like Perry, Nash, Gaborik and so on.

If Moen had the wheels he'd still be useful on the forecheck. His defensive play is good and he keeps with the play but if he's not interested in fighting he's getting traded. No way we keep him for four years, no way.

but then again Damphousse is an idiot who can't speak no good and Moen tried to fight Simmonds several times tonight. A lil of Column A a lil of Column B I suppose.

Not so sure about the Bruins. And the Pens are beatable if Fleury plays like last Playoffs. I am more scared about TO for sure, + Washington and the Isles.

If the Habs were tougher it wouldn't have made any difference tonight playing such pathetic D coverage. The Flyers could've scored many more goals tonight the way they exposed the Habs D.

But when there's no time on the clock and you're getting humiliated, it's not an invite-only dance.
