1) He's been in a slump lately and has taken some bad penalties.
2) Shows to the other players, there's no favourites. No one is immune from the carrot and the stick.
3) Hopefully, he'll learn something from the process.

If it ruins his confidence, it would mean he doesn't have much to begin with, and that's unlikely.

No, they agree with it.

Hey, by the way, what's going on with the rules page that popped up when I wanted to write?

FINALLY !!!
i really think he should have played in the AHL before coming up...he's a good player, but not fully developed yet....
and his skating is not too good either..

im sure he will emerge as a great power forward in the near future however

Playing in the AHL was impossible so...it was either a tight leash in the NHL or poutine in the LHJMQ

I think that if Carbo hadn't have done this, it would have sent the wrong message to the other players. They might have started to think that he was playing favorites... Imagine how Kosty would feel if he was scratched after a good game, and Lats got to play even knowing he was struggling for weeks.

I dont know what you think he as to learn in the process you talking like the
kid did someting that is not correct.

I am the first to say that he need a break but not like some of you
who think he need to be put in is place.

Yes there some player who is immune to the stick who got far more bad
penalties in the last 7 weeks that are not rookies who is should lead
by exemple.

Some of you like that he hit the wall and are happy about that

No, it was impossible. He could only play in the QMJHL or the NHL. The AHL was not an option.

No...he could not play in the AHL. Je could only be sent to his junior team and if he was he could not be called back up. Not knowing that is weird.

1- I don't have anything against the kid, and I meant it as part of his NHL maturation process.

2- I don't think he needs to be "put in is place" if you mean by that anything more then taken out of the lineup because others have been playing better. He's very young and he has the same problems as other players who slump in their first few years (see Radulov, Boyes, etc...).

3- I agree that other players who were slumping lately should lead by example and should get the stick if necessary (ride the bench, go to the pressbox, drop lines, any other perks withdrawn, etc...)

4- I'm not happy he hit the wall and I look forward for him to be a solid member of the Habs.

It's a part of the maturation process. He's not playing well, so he's got to sit and watch. He'll be back for the next game, I'm sure, and ready to prove himself.

This is great, he was useless since 10 games....


But hey, no one can say that he is not good...

Top-30 for hits in the league... 11-13-24 in 62 games (was 0pt in 13games)...

So at 19 years old, even if he is not really good down here since a couple weeks, we all know that he got a great potential, can already score and make very nice passes. Its realistic to think that he can be no doubt a 30-35 goals scorer.

I was thinking before the season that he would finish with 30pts in 82 games...

He got 24 in 62, quite the same if you ask me, its great for him. I hope he will work on his skating abilities this summer, like that he can already score 25 goals next year at only 20 years old...

Wow, Carbo has grown a brain.

I'm really loving the decisions he's making recently;

- Giving Halak 4 straight starts, thus building confidence
- Rewarding Perezhogin's play with solid ice time last game
- Inserting Kostitsyn on the top 2 lines
- Finally demoting Latendresse after a few bad weeks of games (-4 in his last 3 games)

Come on, if his confidence is shot or his development stunts after 1 missed game, he never had "it" to begin with. Players don't develop by being coddled and playing guaranteed minutes, they develop by (this is gonna be cheesy) overcoming adversity.

Before the season began I expected Latendresse to get between 10-15 goals and 25-30 points. He already achieved that so I'm happy. Also the number of hits he has leading rookies in that categorie also satisfy me.

A few days rest is fine with me, especially considering the way he played in the past few games.

All is good
