Was Desharnais that bad?

DD did not create a single thing and he was a turnover machine. He was by far the worst player of the night for both teams. As for Brière with the torche... meh i don't really care tbh.

Man Desharnais sucks. I don't like to say that often but, he's just not an NHLer anymore. At least Briere made some nice plays.

Eller's clones can't get here fast enough.

From my observations...everytime I saw Desharnais he would screw up the play...the puck would go over his blade...he couldn't handle an easy pass...nothing clicked for DD. Didn't see him make any passes...maybe he didn't have the chances to make nice passes (since he couldn't handle the puck all night long)...he was terrible vs the Leaves, imo. He played like an average AHLer. He better not be sitting on his salary...%^&*#$%^&*.
Plekanec would admit it if he played a bad game...Desharnais doesn't seem accountable for anything. Can't wait till he's gone (even though a part of me knows that DD can be quite crafty with his passes sometimes but I don't like the pampering treatment he gets, especially when he could only play with Cole and Pacioretty).

And, Markov screwed up (big time) on the PP (when it was a crucial 2-2 score)...his huge screw-up led to a breakaway SH goal to make it 3-2 (we were on the PP which made it worse).
Subban could have made the same screw up but get back with his speed. Markov is as slow as a turtle. I really want to see our Habs get a 1st Rnd Pick for him this season while we can and/or before he gets injured for a year. For now...I'll try to remain positive towards Markov since so many here love him so much even though he has never helped in the playoffs when it counts the most.



POSITIVE:
It was the Eller show.

And, Diaz showed great composure on one play (Eller goal) to make a great pass to Eller for an open net...many dmen would have shot it or rushed the play or just screwed it up...he took his time (waited like a real pro) and made the perfect/right play for the easy goal for Eller.

Galchenyuk and Gallagher also played well.

The E.G.G. Line

I'm more then enthusiast of theirs play last night, but for balancing our group of forwards would you rather split or let the line together?

Maybe mix the two other offensive lines a bit first?

DD is ONE thing well last night.
Win faceoffs.

But then again, he didn't took much faceoffs and didn'T take many on the opposite side, except maybe once on the PK.

Now, when faceoffs are the better aspects of the game of a guy like this... That means he was terrible.

PS : 6 in 10. Thought he was a little above that actually.

Speaking of which, Pleks got kicked out of almost every single one of the faceoffs.

For now:

Pacioretty - Plekanec - Brière
Galchenyuk - Eller - Gallagher
Bourque - Desharnais - Gionta
Prust - White - Moen

Gorges-Subban
Markov-Diaz
Tinordi-Bouillon

Price
  • I expect Bournival to force his way into the lineup eventually (either as a 4C or 3rd line winger).
  • Gionta (injury), Desharnais (poor play), White (discipline) are the guys most likely to make way for Bournival.
  • I'd love to see Pacioretty-Eller-Galchenyuk as a line at some point (could be a legit 1st line eventually), but that would make it easier for teams to match up against us (part of what makes the Habs hard to play against is the fact that they have 3 relatively even lines - all OK 2nd lines, making it very difficult for teams to know who to key in on).
  • I'd like to see Beaulieu get the chance to replace Bouillon in the lineup eventually

I would really like to see tinordi play with Markov 5 on 5 I do not like Diaz playing with Markov. Every time Diaz has the puck I cross my fingers that he doesn't turn it over or try making a pass that ends up being a icing. I wouldn't mind seeing him with subby also and drop gorges. This would be my lineup for Philly.

PAC- pleky- briere
Galchy- eller- gally
Bourque- bournival- gionta
Moen- white- prust

Tinordi- subban
Markov- gorges
Bouillon- Diaz

Oh ya dd gets benched almost forgot maybe it because he disappeared Tuesday night

DD on a fourth line, who's supposed to be physical and play well defensively would work really well. If you're going to play him on a fourth line just trade him for a 3rd round pick.

I would bench DD the same way Eller got benched last year.

Max Pacioretty - Tomas Plekanec - Daniel Briere
Alex Galchenyuk - Lars Eller - Brendan Gallagher
Rene Bourque - Michael Bournival - Brian Gionta
Brandon Prust - Ryan White - Travis Moen

Jarred Tinordi - PK Subban
Andrei Markov - Josh Gorges
Francis Bouillon - Rafael Diaz

I would try this..

Max Pacioretty - Lars Eller - Alex Galchenyuk
Daniel Briere - Tomas Plekanec - Brendan Gallagher
Rene Bourque - Michael Bournival - Brian Gionta
Travis Moen - Ryan White - Brandon Prust

Rene Bourque - Michael Bournval - Brian Gionta
Travis Moen - Brandon Prust - George Parros

PK Subban - Jarred Tinordi

The lineup right now seems to be terrible.

bourque - pleks - gio have never really had much success.
patches and DD haven't done much since Cole left even though Patches still put up points last year.
EGG line is the only one that's really showed some gumption in the limited role they've been given.

I think it's time to shake them up and balance off the lines a bit more.

If I was making the lines, I'd try something like:

Galchenyuk Plecks Gio
Patches Briere Bourque
Prust Eller Gallagher
Moen Bourrnival White

sit DD as he really doesn't fit in the line up as Briere is a better option.

better balance of size on left and right, speed, grit, scorers and passers on each line. If Plecks continues to play poorly, I'd switch him out with Eller.

Tinner PK
Markov Gorges
Bou Beaulieu
Diaz

I think everyone realizes we are very small on the wings .. I would try and organize a trade arround youth for youth ...

I would try Beaulieu++ to Washington for Tom Wilson and a 2nd. This would provide us size on the Wing while still acquiring youth.

Bourque-Desharnais-Wilson
Gallchenyuk-Eller-Gallagher
Pacioretty-Plekanek-Briere
Gionta sits ...

Next year...
Pacioretty-Gallchenyuk-Wilson
Bournival-Eller-Gallagher
Bourque-Plekanek-Briere

On D
Tinordi, Suban
Emelin, Diaz
Markov, Gorges

Maybe we have to wait till next season:
Plekanec
Eller
Galchenyuk

If you want Wilson you need to trade Gallagher and more at least. McPhee is not crazy enough to trade Wilson (and a second?) for Beaulieu ++.... Collberg etc.
