The Habs have a lot of work to do. They are not built to win the cup. The Sens on the other hand, are more of a playoff team. Doesn't it say a lot that despite being decimated by injuries, this Habs were better than the Sens throughout most of the series?

Game 4 was ours. Sens got despicably lucky. It should have been a different series.

Damn, and we lost against them, not in 7 game, nor in 6 games. And they blew out us 2 times, 6-1 each.

I'm so ashamed.
Did you watch them played without Karlsson, Spezza and alot of their other players injured during all the season?

Maybe they are not a powerhouse as Pittsburgh are for scoring but they have a good structured game created by a good coaching staff.

AK was good enough defensively when he actually felt like backchecking. He wasn't legitimately terrible/clueless at defending like Ryder is. I think AK would do really well under Therrien getting ice time. If Therrien can go 53 games without benching DD for playing worse than AK ever did AK could actually get some work done. Also AK hits like a train and has proven chemistry with Plekanec and Eller. It would be top 9 depth for nothing but cap space.

despite us losing....as i was there contemplating another playoff defeat at station des sports in brossard....i felt proud to be born a habs fan! hockey gods werent with us this year as we had injuries and inconsistencies in the playoffs...we were halaked in the end anyways but our guys tried....we were the better team while dominating 4 out of 5 gamesbut this bodes well for the future...youngins got experience and there were aome revelations and so on. we have the building blocks in piece...we just need to surround them properly. as i saw bergevin being pissed...hopefully hell do the right moves his summer and turn us into a yearly contender soon! draft is the first order of business and secondly...please oh please gods, hockey gods, nature, buddha, hindu gods, destiny, whichever deity....please get rid of desharnais! not a bad player...but will never win with him as a top 3 centerman! cross your fingers ppl!!

I dont know if they are better but their coach just flat out predicted exactly what therrien was going with a relentless attack until just the right moment and ottawa counter attacked in text book fashion. also anderson was pretty damn good though very few of our players have a real nose for goal. to quote miracle "you looked like a bunch of monkeys trying to hump a football out there"
for real we need to get gionta and plek out of here. desharnais musst either show up and unlock the opposing defense like we have seen in the past or we need a new playmaker. we also need someone who can put it in the net consistently remember cammy back in 2010? a real scoring touch. if i see one more comment about adding more size im going to have stroke.

All of my gripes now aired, I have to say this has been a very successful season and we have grown by leaps and bounds. Im confident in the teams direction. we do need to get rid of therrien though, he is a one season coach and I think he started to lose it before the playoffs. maybe we can pick up vigneault.

At least their fanbase ain't near as big nor as obnoxious as the Laffs. If we'd stunk the joint out against them in the third periods and gotten sent packing, we wouldn't have heard the end of it for the next decade.

I'm still kind of numb with the realization that it's been twenty freakin' years now and we're no closer to a Cup. I'm gettin' old.

I would trade Pacioretty and DD if we could get something decent in return.There is simply not enough compete in either of them.

I'm sure they'll be better next year. Bad luck didn't help. Gallagher and Galchenyuk we're awesome this season and I'm not worry for the future.

It was a fun season to watch, barring the last two weeks and the playoffs.

I'm moving overseas for a year at the end of the summer and probably won't get to watch many games, so I'm expecting a cup run next season for sure!

Couple that with mostly one-sided reffing, and it's no surprise to see the results we saw.

I also suspect that Price has been playing with a groin injury the whole season which would explain why he never seemed sharp in nets.

In the off-season, I'd like for the team to acquire guys like Laich who are physically big and gritty. I've had enough of Desharnais who played like a child the whole series long. No fire or passion whatsoever and a measly point in 5 games for who is essentially supposed to be our #1 centerman. He should be ashamed of himself.

Just for kicks, I was watching highlights of the 2010 Playoffs and the Habs looked like a MUCH faster team back then. One-time passes and the whole lot. This year, there was no adrenaline or sense of urgency. In fact, I couldn't even see the difference between a regular season or Playoffs game.

Hopefully, the players get better physically and add bulk. I'd love to see Gionta gone as having torn biceps in back-to-back years either mean that he'll likely be extremely fragile from this point onwards or his career is finished. With that 5$ million, the team could likely get a good top-6 forward or a 2nd-pairing D-man.

I'd give Price another year to show some moxie and if he plays next season like he has played this one, I'd trade him. His only job is to stop pucks and he's done an absolutely lousy job of doing this, this year. At his salary, that's no excuse.
They need players with durability. Our only bigger player is Prust and overexerted himself, which is why he got injured. In the offseason it would be nice to unload Deharnais, Bouillion, and Gionta and add Torres, Clarkson, and Murray to the team. Others that I would consider would be Horton, Morrow, Clowe, and Ferrence.

Embarrassing way to lose to Ottawa. Luckily this might help set us up for an exciting off season with a better identity than small/soft/fast.

The Sens strategy worked.

Hit our smaller players every chance you get. Eventually the hits (and the pain) will accumulate and the player will wear down as the game goes on.

Gallagher is a warrior. The amount of punishment did have an adverse effect on his play.

Kudos to the Sens for taking advantage of a situation that they could exploit.

Price still has time to prove himself next year altough he will still have to deliver and not get a free pass.

IMO defense is more of a problem and size obviously as you pointed out.
How much longer you going to give Price...ten years?!? lol

The Sens, as well as the Leafs during the season, have shown everyone in the league how to win against the Habs. Be physical.Bergevin must now address the situation.

The Habs were just eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs and I don't even seem to care.. Losing to the Bruins or Flyers in the playoffs at least made me feel a little pissed off but after this series absolutely nothing.

Habs have no other option than hope Price will play to his full potential in the years to come. Better and bigger dmen could help too.

This has been the blueprint for years.

The 12-0 3rd period score shows just how soft we are. It's actually pathetic. At least the problem will be addressed now.
