What are you talking about?? Habs outshot the Hawks at home after an incredible game vs the Flams and a night flight... lots of dangerous shots and scoring chances. Khabibulin made the difference.. no Khabi, Habs would have won that one.

You underestimate Perezhogin. He was great on the second line. He had numerous chances and made Kovalev and Plekanec look a lot better in the latter part of the third period.

No don't get me wrong, I think Perezhogin's played great and I'm really happy that he's getting second-line ice time...but what I'm trying to say is that I don't think he was essential to the third line, at least not to a point where one would have to worry about breaking up his chemistry with Bonk and Johnson.

I didn't hear Carbo's comments...

Did he sound like he was really planning to permanently switch Sammy and Perez??

I'm happy to see the change of Samsonov/Perezhogin made. I'm disappointed it took this long as it was foreseeable, in my opinion.

I liked what I've seen from the Perezhogin-Plekanec-Kovalev line. Perezhogin is such a hardworking player. Just have to laugh about Danny Dubé and the CKAC/110% morons who labled him as a lazy russian player.

He's everywhere on the ice, forechecks, backcheks, lays big hits, shoots the puck.. but he can't buy a goal

I'd like to see the Perezhogin/Samsonov switch for a few games, as Mike8 has stressed lately.. could spark both lines.

They only had 3 shifts together (one on the PP I believe)... So I don't think we saw a big impact on the line itself...but Perez was easily the most noticeable player on the line...Sad seeing as the other 2 are supposed to be players the team depends upon for success.

CJAD were talking about how good his defensive play was tonight during the broadcast. Maybe that was when Chicago scored.. I wouldn't know since they seemed to avoid calling the game at all cost.

I'm sorry to sound like a Perezhogin freak again (which I'm not), but his defensive game is almost flawless since he came back from Hamilton last year; watch him when he's along the boards in his own zone, he's so good at talking the puck away from an opponent or simply neutralizing him... sometimes it makes me wonder about how usefull he can be on a third line, even though the points aren't comming.

Perez has been working his buns off night in and night out. He deserves his "promotion" to the second line. So far not happy with the Sammy acquisition. Pleks and Perez had fantastic chemistry last year. And, as someone else noted, Pleks and Kovi seem to be finding that spark. I don't know, but the ingredients are there for this line to catch fire. Here's hoping! And hopefully sammy finds something with Bonk and Johnson. I don't think he can hurt this line, can he?

Video: Shifts that looked like PP

After these multiple "suspect" threads about the game against the Hawks. And especialy after the following quoted comment I decided to make a small montage of selected Habs shift from the first 2 periods only. Like I said in the quoted post. Habs had multiple powerplay like shifts in the first 2 periods. So here they are....only those with extended puck control and domination. None of those are powerplays. Followed by some supporting comments by Demers. Just give the clip time to load it's 11 megs divx 6.

Also notice how the crowd basicaly never reacts to anything...If I was to put some different/intense crowd noise on those sequences the feeling would be totaly different.

Hockey is certainly not your sport... Poor opposition, even worst showing. Disgusting... You should start watching figure skating, maybe you'll be better to evaluate skaters' performances..
Dont piss me off when I have resources to support my statements.
Cyrrus147 and NewHabsArea I'd like to have your response to what Demers and Crêtes say at the end of this clip. Thank you.

Now time for sleep.

You know, I think the Habs effort is underrated by everyone because everybody was downed by the mortuary atmosphere in Chicago. We play half our games at home which is very raucous and loud, and a lot of our away games in places like Toronto, Boston, Ottawa....

All and all, they played great, and deserved the win. The reason the Habs didn't win is two-fold, one has a name: Nikolai Khabibulin. The other one, a secondary one, is a very aggresive PK that wouldn't let point men go in motion for slap shots.

Other than that we owned them. They're not a one line team, they're a 2/3 of a line team. Havlat & Handzus, Vrbata is only there to fill the hole.

We deserved the win, we didn't get it. It happens.

I d like to see this, Perez is working his *** off and Carbo sees it
I think Samsonov will have less pressure on the 3rd line and his danglings abilities are more needed in the 3rd line than on the 2nd while Perez is preety good around the nets. I think he has a good connection with Pleky, he was good with Kovalev last year...and having these teammates will allow him to park his *** in front of the net and get the rebounds or deviations which he s pretty good at.

I do not think it would have been all that bad, although the Canadiens did not play amazing tonight I believe they controled most of the game.

The Sabres are in Montreal on MONDAY though

You should be laughing at yourself for thinking the habs were going to finish 1st in the east. Clearly, you do not have realistic expectations for this roster.

You are thinking this team is much better than they really are.

For those of us who picked the habs to finish somewhere between 5th-8th are taking this game in stride.

You should re-evaluate this team or else you are going to be in for a big disapointment
