And this was before the Subban nonsense and Bouillon suddenly being nominated as our #2 defenceman.

Tonight succeeded in lowering my already low expectations. This will be a loooong short season.

A playoff team would have wiped the floor with us.
Marc, I think you should just relax a bit. ALLLLLLLL teams looked warped today. Heck, did you see parts of the LA game? They had intensity, ALLL of them (well, maybe not the Jets). But they ALLLLL lacked execution. Normal.

Ya Emelin is a bit of a mess out there, very scarey with the puck.

What are you talking about? Diaz was great and most people in the GDT agree. He didn't even have 15 minutes TOI. If he's not good enough for 15 minutes, he shouldn't be in the lineup (although he is because he was great).

Bourque played well on both sides, but played with absolute crap all game.

And Kaberle let about 4 or 5 pucks past him in the 3rd period alone. I like Kaberle, but that was not good. Don't pretend you know what I'm talking about if you really don't.

He was very good. Actually, our D was pretty good, specially in the 3rd. It's the forwards that didn't deliver.

People criticising Gally. The kid's eighteen. Cut him a little slack for his first game, playing out of position no less. Frankly, I found him decent all things considered.

Saturday night, against the leafs, and yet zero emotion. I don't agree with the way Subban is negotiating his contract right now, but he would have brought emotion.

Not that bad actually. We know our D sucks, this should not be a surprise to anyone. I was really impressed we didn't lie down and die in the 3rd. We were the better team, now we just need to be the better team in the 1st two periods.

Not that bad. No injuries and Carey Price played well.

As bad as the play was, the most embarrassing part of the game was when Michel Therrien got a semi-standing ovation.

Victory or defeat doesn't change the following facts:
1- Karberle is not a top 6 D.
2- Lack of judgment from Therrien. How the hell that guy is on the ice in the last minute?
3- The habs defense has no depth and it shows.
4- Subban is the habs best player whenever you like it or not.
5- Eller is not a top 3 center.
6- No excuses.

Carey was excellent by the way. Our goalie was rock solid tonight. And he played the puck many times. Loved it.

Josh was not very good tonight and Bouillon looked old.

But I liked what I saw from the other d's. Kaberle surprised me. Made some solid passes. And Markov, while slower, got the puck out of the zone a plenty. That was great to see.

I would have put Gallagher instead of White. More wheels because he played in the A.
