Post-game quote (Souray appreciation thread)

Most of Jose Theodore's former teammates on the Montreal Canadiens admitted to feeling a little sorry for him as they put five third period goals past him in a wild 8-5 victory.

But not Sheldon Souray.

"Why would I?" Souray asked. "I don't feel for anybody. The media makes it a bigger deal than it is. I'm sure for (Theodore) coming in here was special for him, but for us it's just another game and he's just another goalie. We have a good thing going here. We have a great feeling in this room, a great feeling of togetherness, and that's what we're worried about, not anybody else."


That's what it's all about in the new NHL. Winning as a team. I hope all you Souray bashers took notes tonight, because this guy's importance to this team should never be underestimated. His leadership is just as important to the Habs as Saku's.

ouch. I guess that Souray was a little pissed about Theos remarks on how the dressing room atmosphere is so much better in Colorado (which means it sucked in MTL)

I've told myself not to take Souray for granted ever since Julien's firing. He said something to the effect that everyone in the locker room should be ashamed of themselves for what transpired and how they were directly responsible for it.

He can be frustrating sometimes with his defensive blunders but the guy is a key offensive weapon both on the PP and 5-on-5, is the toughest guy on the team and has leadership coming out the wazoo.

Souray is a man, Souray has no emotions for anybody.

Was I the only one thinking he looked pissed tonight?

Souray still sucks defensively so far. Those four points won't blind me, because he was responsible for at least as many goals scored against us this season.

Looks who is was paired up with in the 1st period. His defensive partner gave the puck away on the 1st goal and left Souray out to dry. Put him with Markov and all these so called blunders disappear. OH and was the SPezza goal a blunder or a nice play by Spezza?

These guys work together to create unity. Some guys will respond to Koivu's one on one discussions and hard work on the ice, some guys respond to the vocal "raw, raw" type displays by Souray and Rivet. Both are equally important.

Way to go Souray for these comments. I also agree with what he said in the playoff vs the Bruins when he and Kovalev crashed into each other. But what was he doing at the red line on that goal??? Thats a different story.

He's a good leader.

Souray's leadership isn't as important as Koivu's on or off the ice. Of course, after a big win where Souray pots 2 key goals and 2 apples, most will disagree with me, but it's the truth.

That is huge I agree.

Souray needs to play more pp time less of everything else becuase he is not mobile enough on the ice same for rivet. They are not terrible on the pk but once Dandenault and Bouillon are back that will help this team a lot. I could see the Habs dressing 7 defenseman on a regular basis. Also why does Niinimaa not get any PP time. Rivet although a super hard worker does not have the touch or vision to play on the pp.


Souray was incredible tonight and his shot alone will garnish him some great money this offseason, I would love if he stayed for cheap with ths habs. His overall game will improve as the season goes on.

wasnt gonna create another thread of this...but not sure if anyone heard Brunette's comments after the game about the way the crowd reacted to Breezby and Theo...

"I don't think it's the right thing to do," Brunette said of crowd's treatment of Theodore and Avalanche defenseman Patrice Brisebois, a member of the Canadiens last Stanley Cup-winning team in 1993 who also returned to Montreal for the first time.

"I think they played well for them all those years and they were lucky to have them. If that's the way they feel about those guys, then shame on them."

Tied with Higgins for goals. Tied with Koivu for points.

He leads the league for goals (5. 2 ahead of the bunch), points (9. 1 ahead of Van Ryn and Carle), and PPP (8. 2 ahead of Gonchar) by a defenseman. He's also tied for first for PPP overall with Hossa.

And while we're at it.. Andrei Markov is also tied for #1 in the league in assists by a defenseman with 7.

If only they could use him exclusively on PP or when the fourth line of the opposing team is on the ice.

on a side note: That stick flip flop he does when on PK and he is trying to block the shooting lanes is not effective and is really embarassing.
