It's a combination of poor goaltending and **** poor D. Frankly, I think the D's the bigger problem. But people wanted us to hang onto our 5th and 6th round picks so they could take us to the promised land 5 years from now. We needed an experienced Dman and we got a guy who has never played.
Meh those are normal shots that happen no matter what. There isn't a defense in the world that can prevent shots altogether. They weren't particularly dangerous. Now you're down 2-0 and you can't buy a save from your goalie and that's when things start to get bad. Now you'll see players give up and it'll end up as a 6-2 loss or something.
The first goal, I agree, but look at the 2nd one... It's all defense.
Habs are done ( srs ) . They peaked too soon. On a 82 games season we would probably be around 8-10th. I can't see how we can pass one round in playoff.
is this something you were saying when they were playing their best? OR maybe you were planning the parade. You really can't make logical conclusions on a small sample. They are playing badly at the moment, but playoffs is 2 weeks away, and is a completely different season. They made the playoffs and it really makes no difference who they play.
sooooo....EMELIN really is the glue that keeps our defense good...who knew!
Yes and no. Emelin wasn't all that great, but I like his game. The problem with Emelin being out is it completely ****s up the pairings. You have guys playing more minutes than they should. That's what hurts us. If we got a top 4 guy, we wouldn't be this poor IMO.
If Emelin's absence is causing this much havoc on your D then you have a pretty weak D to begin with.
