And it's now over..

I thought it was interesting. Also, I've counted about 15 monsieur/mister mentions.

Ofcourse we can save the season. Trade for more overpaid vets. They'll help us, Pierre.

Gauthier seemed to put quite a bit of the blame on the non-performing vets. Good stuff.

He has obviously mentioned the fans deserve much better than this.

Anyways, I'm pretty sure there will have an article on this soon.

Who are these non-performing vets ?

Gomez and Gionta are injured.
Gill is hardly a first-pairing guy.
Moen is playing above the expectations, Kostitsyn is playing at the level he's used to. Cole seems to be a good signing so far.
Plekanec and Cammalleri are used to have horrific matchups, mostly because the other good defensive players are out, and their offensive numbers are killed, logically, because of that.

I think you can safely criticize Cammy's compete level. Or at least the appearance that the compete is lacking.

How much time did he speak English compared to French, this is very important to know.

Gionta also mentioned to return before Gomez, which logically has to be before the all star game because it was reported that They will all return before markov.

so basically, he said nothing. and he still thinks this season can be salvaged? well, im not sure if anyone expected him to say otherwise, but the signing of gorges proves that we are sellers this year. mark that down

Habs are not playing up to expectation, fans deserve better, management will do what they can to save the season.

In other words, attempted damage control at it's finest.

From my desk, i am not sure to be in a position to compete someone's compete level.
Anyway, thats something you talk about privately, if you are sure of it, which is quite difficult to be.

The fact is that Cammalleri was thriving under a different scenario with Iginla, playing away from the best defenders, whereas now, he was used to play with Plekanec. Selke-caliber matchups and situation.
Not the same problem at all, and you're surprised that he's having an hard time when he's even more watched now that Gionta is out ?

Agreed, if we had let one of our best D go that would mean we were going for a cup run...

Awards:
The vets
Plekanec - 29 points in 39 games. -10. For a guy that is highly regarded as a good two-way player, he needs to improve defensively this season.
Cammalleri - 21 points in 34 games, 8 goals. Not scoring nearly enough for a sniper and his work without the puck is dreadful.
Gionta - 15 points in 29 games. Work ethic is there when he plays, but the production isn't there.
Cole - Leads the team with 16 goals. Has really turned it on since his slow start to the season.
Moen - 12 points in 37 games, 9 goals. Solid bottom 6 player and one of the bigger surprises of the season.
Kaberle - 7 assists in 10 games with the Habs. Looks good and has helped the powerplay, defensively needs to be a bit better though.
Gill - Habs penalty kill is 2nd best in the league. Gill is doing his job.
Darche - Disappointment from last season's effort.
Gomez - No explanation needed here.

So yes, blame can be placed all around when it comes to the vets. For the most part, they need to be better in some or many aspects of the game.

We need to fire Gauthier. I don't trust him when he said that "they" will do everything to turn this team around. He will do something bad again, i can feel it.

Fire this clown.
