As an outsider it looks like Habs have a real good chemistry now that Ribeiro's french-clique was removed from the lockerroom, Koivu, Souray and Rivet are all good friends and they command the lockerroom with great authority.

I'm impressed with Habs' team, I underestimated the negative effect Ribeiro and his buddies (Dagenais, Theo etc) had last season.

How's the french media taking this anyway?

Get your facts straight WS. Both are left D and only play together on PP.
First goal was Niinimaa and Rivet but yes, you may have mistaken him for Souray. He got deeked out of his shorts the way Souray usually does forcing Rivet to defend against two guys.
Second goal Souray crossed over to Rivets side forcing Rivet to go after the man coming up the left so when the puck was shot over it was
Souray's man that scored. How is that his partners fault.
I like Souray and Rivet hasn't set the world on fire so far this year for whatever reason ( maybe his injuries )but he has taken a lot heat for his partners bad defensive play. In fairness to Rivet most of the mistakes are being made up the left side so why is it you feel the need to bash Craig Rivet trying to make your guy Souray less offensive. Your missing all the good things that Rivet does well. Like usual he goes about his business being a team leader and doing what he needs to do without a lot of fan fare.
WS, I suggest you tape the games like I do so you can replay them or get a good pair of glasses..lol.

+1

I just wish we had more quality depth on D so that we didn't have to use him so much during 5 on 5... same goes for rivet.

I said it before and all say it again. I can live with souray brain cramps because of two things.

1. Not many people has the kind of shot souray has. Just masive. When were on the pp and the other team lets him shoot, all we need is a guy infront of the goalie for a rebound or tip in. When other teams double team him they well sometimes forget about are fowards down low and the habs can make the cross ice play hapen. (ryder pp goal last night was a beauty but it happen because there were two guys covering souray given koivu the open space to make ryder the pass). Souray is so very important to are power play because of the attention he gets from other teams. Markov dosent get half of the attention souray gets and its not dandenault,rivet,streit whos going to generate that kind of attention.

2. When things get nasty urond the net souray well be the first one there to push people out of the way and protect his goalies. He will even drop the gloves if he has too and that of kind intimidating force is very important to have urond the net. Its not markov,streit,dandenault,rivet who going to scare the other team if they try to get to are goalie.

The team's doing well, so neither the french nor the english media are stirring the pot at the moment.

The litmus test will be when the Habs hit a bump this season, at which point the french media will probably blame it on a lack of french players and the english media will blame it on the french media.

Souray had 4 points and a +/- of -1 last night. Doesn't that mean he was on the ice for the Avs' 5 goals?

Interesting...

It's sad that, in all posibilities, Sheldon will leave us after this season at the latest.

I wish the man never had a kid to care about. He could have been a monster.

Souray said he wanted to stay in Montreal last year I think it is plausable he will be back next season. I really do not know how Bob could justify not trying to bring him back if he stay's healthy and his shot keeps hitting the net.

I would. Souray and Rivet bring alot to the room. That little thing they do where they stand by the exit at the end of the game and give every player a little tap and some encouragement is an example...Stuff like that brings the team together.

It sucked because of Theo. They didn't like him. He's gone and now it doesn't suck anymore.

Anyway he look like he worked on his shot this off season its on net most of the time.
I'm worried about his contract now...He's putting up McCabe type numbers and if he wants a McCabe contract...Well we have to let him go.

You know, if Souray makes that sacrifice again and stays here some more, and ends his career here, and keeps delivering the same stats year in, year out, he'd probably be worthy of being into the Habs Shrine at Bell Center.

Not a small feat since the only current Hab I could see that could be immortalized would be Koivu. Neither get their numbers pulled of course, but a plaque on the wall of the Bell Center is a big achievement.

I see Souray as No. 2 leader with the team, after Koivu.

"its the truth." I love when people use that line. Acting like they know what goes on in the lockerroom and in peoples heads.

And btw, this has nothing to do with a big game. He has been a leader for years.

I like Sheldon but we cannot compare him with our captain, leader and best player.

Sorry, but Sourray is always caught out of position and doesn't have any mobility. He's also a poor passer and he can't even cleanly check a guy. A defensemen should be able to play a good defensive and Sourray can't.

I'm sorry, but he's the weakest link..

The atmosphere is better for Theo in Colorado because they haven't started raging on him about how much he sucks.


And maybe coke is cheaper in Denver.....
