Andre Roy. I'm done. This is too much.

Anything good on TV?

If this team was going to be a circus anyway, they should have hired Roy so at least RDS would give them some props. Although that would have been a bad choice and it would have been Subban's fault.

Another?


I reviewed your infraction history and I never gave you one, so I guess that means I'm safe.

funny how neither MB nor MT seem to realize that they owe their success in large part to the very guy they seem most eager to single out negatively.
Subban played great two seasons ago and we finished bottom 3.

Why does DD get so much ice time? It's excessive.

Don't know about anyone else but PK and Markov basically tying up the game with their plays at the blueline in the 3rd was damn impressive.

MT putting DD's line on with under 2mins meaning one of the top 2 lines wouldn't get a shift was the opposite.

Mea culpa. I've indulged in vodka induced posting here, as have some of your most favored posters.

If you want a bit of depth, PM me and I'll explain.

they keep saying that Desharnais is not playing to the level that he should, that he works but nothing comes out of it.... what else do you want them to say: trade the bum!!! send him to Hamilton!!! put him in the stands....

I'm sure that at this moment, the only reason that DD as not been sent in the stands is that we still miss 4 of our regular forward.... but honestly, i'm not sure anymore that sending him in the stands would do anything....

As mention, it's not a lack of effort, it's more that size, limited strenght, limited speed and everything else going the other way makes him a liability, but you don't sit a player that you have for 4 more years at 3.5 millions unless you don't have any other choice.

As for the PK criticism over Bouillon Franky is a 38 years old veteran, 6 or 7 defenseman, playing out of his chair, often on the wrong side and his a coach favorite, wasting time saying he's no longer a good player and pointing all his mistake wouldn't do much good, we all know that he's on his last mile and even if he's a favorite of Michel, i cannot believe that if all these players are available: Subban, Markov, Diaz, Gorges, Murray, Emelin, Drewiske, and Frankie, he would not have played all the games this season (not even close)

As for PK, yeah it's tiring, but you'll point the guy mistakes cause he's simply the best, and you always expect more from the best... And who should really care? You think when in Montréal, PK after a game rush home to listen to the freakin Antichambre?

No biggie....

Anyway, PK is love by the fans, pretty sure if not love, his talent is fully respected in the room, and his potential is still limitless, but i'd rather the managment to be more on his back than always give him a free pass.... As i expect more in the future from PK that i would now from DD or Bouillon or 10 years ago for BOO....

let's get back on track tomorrow

DD line up in the last 3 minutes, THAT i didn't get...

with the team playing tomorrow, you had to run 4 lines most of the games and when you don't have last change what happen with the fourth line might happen... but in the last 3 minutes, looking for a goal, you have to run with you best two lines, with maybe getting Bourque in once to put a bigger body but....

true, but if that was "great", his current level is whatever the step above that you want to call it.

"all-world" dmen almost never end up on bottom-feeders, and in our particular case, the lack of depth on the back end and the inconsistency of our fwds = recipe for disaster without an "all-world" guy on the back end.

not too different than all those years where Markov was basically the only thing keeping us in the playoff hunt (or costing us lottery picks, however you want to frame it

This team depresses me because it's not far from being a good team. It needs a few tweaks, sure, but nothing major.

Slightly glad I missed the third period now I guess. Oh well, boys > hockey.

Unless you can bring them to games and have both at once!

Would you rather the 4th goes out there? Or just have the top 2 lines go out for 90 second shifts?

How are Desharnais and Bouillon getting all the blame for the loss, when White's line was absolutely atrocious?

**** you Desharnais, **** you Bouillon and **** you 4th line.
Completely ruined an epic performance by Markov, Subban and Galchenyuk.

If Moen and Prust are in the lineup then this game is 3-1 or 3-2 habs, no question. As much as you guys wanna blame DD, MT or Cube, this game is really on the 4th line - Parros with White and Blunden is an AHL 4th line and they got absolutely exploited by Minnesota.

Anyone have the play where Galchenyuk drew a penalty on Coyle? Made a nice toedrag on Suter - gif worthy.

You guys are a cheery, happy bunch tonight!

That loss is a big bite to swallow... the atmosphere when you lose that way after coming back in the game is one of the worse you can feel in a room. It's dead silence and the voice breaking that silence usually does it to say they take the blame and no matter if it's true or not, that's no fun.

Coaches really don't have much to say either.

That was a ******** loss. FORTUNATELY, no time to dwell on it. They can use it to fuel themselves for tomorrow and oh boy, they'll need fueling.

The entire Hab fanbase knows that PK is not the problem.

AC can say all they want.

The last 5 minutes of this game were the most frustrating 5 minutes of the season. 2:46 left in the 3rd, Therrien puts Leblanc and Desharnais on the ice. Who's playing behind them? Bouillon and Diaz.

Why Therrien? WHY? Subban takes the team on his shoulders to get this game tied up, and you play Bouillon? Galchenyuk plays one of his best games of the season, and you play Desharnais? Why on earth would desharnais have 17 minutes when Galchenyuk had 15? Why did the 4th line get ANY minutes in the last 10 minutes of this game? So many questions...
