I know it, but at least Eller has the size and the ability to keep up with other teams centers after the draw. If you could combine Eller and Desharnais to form Ellharnais you'd have a perfect 2nd line center behind Pleks.

Cuz booing him will make him play better, right? I'll never understand booing a player on a team you cheer for.

Man I love Cole's toolbox. Size, speed, acceleration, shot, hands, heart, pedo mustache.

If he was a product of his linemates, he'd have about 30-points. The kid has set up so many plays and nothing has come from them (aka until the last week and a half, Cole's shooting at the chest).

He's already improved his faceoffs (his been the best faceoff guy on the team since the first 5-6 games).

He's working harder defensively (still room for improvement) and I'm sure he'll learn the ins and outs of things as he goes.

I can't fathom how a kid with over a 0.5 PPG with well under 100 games is something to worry about.

Good period and game by the Habs. Much better effort then the last two periods of hockey.

I hate Martin's system but when the team buys into it, we always have the chance to win the game. We have yet to be truly embarrassed on the scoreboard this season. Just need to get healthy .

This was obviously the turning point of his Montréal stint. He's declining very fast. I hope he feels the shame to be the most overpaid in the god damn league.

Well paced and entertaining period.


Cole and DD are playing great!

Didn't like Emelin in this period.

It is venting frustration with a player that is considered useless. Eric Staal isn't booed because his slump is a rarity but more importantly, he is damn well giving his all to try and find the net. Gomez does nothing, thus he is booed for it.

Not saying it should be retired or anything, but he did a lot for the city and he was our best player for a decade...

It's probably karma.
He should never have been allowed to wear number 11 just after Koivu indeed. But really, you guys know how supersticious hockey players are. If I were Gomez, I'd take 91 back for sure ! I'd even make call 911 jokes.

Ellharnais would better than Plekanec.. that's not offense meant, but if Desharnais was in Ellers body (with his defensive awareness)... ouch. Teams would hate us.

I agree the guy needs to work on his skating and leg strength... Those improvment would make us forget that he is very small and would get knocked on his ass less often... But he is one of the player on the team with the best vision and he shows up every game... Eller should take some notes

Are you guys bashing DD for this 1st ? Are you real ?
Thought he skated very well and made some nice passes.
I bet he will score one tonight.

Eller has the least amount of ice-time on the team. :faceplam: Please get rid of Gomez.

On another note.. how ****ing good does St-Denis look? I might almost like him better than Emelin, Weber, and Diaz!

It's getting hard to defend Gomez. Thought he was the worst hab that period.

Nope, we would have drafted Pouliot because Desharnais would of been drafted by the Penguins.

On the contrary actually. Most are saying they liked his play in the 1st.

Eller's younger, I think it will come... Desharnais has good vision, I often wonder if it would be better on the wing.

Gotta say, this was one of Desharnais' best periods as a Hab I've seen. He actually showed some legit shiftiness.

Eller had an incredible move and shot, I can't wait for those to start going in for him.
