I don't like griping after a win, but really does Josh Gorges have ANY offensive sense whatsoever? Guy handles the puck like it's a live grenade.

Nope. It's hot potato for Gorges. He tends to just dump the puck when ever he gets the chance.

Murray is about the same in that regard...but at least Murray can hit. Well, I suppose he can screen his goalie as well...

Hey man, I'm happy to settle for defensive responsibility from both of them! Murray has ironed out some of those early mental gaffes and has become reliable.

Yep, I agree. I don't think any team in the NHL has 6 defencemen with a strong sense of offense. Im happy with their defensive work more than disappointed on their lack of offense.

If Gorges had offensive talent he would be making a lot more than $3.9M.

It's obvious Chucky still has some learning to do. There were a few times in the O zone, he made a play to get around the dman but then ran out of room and didn't know what to do, so he just passed it to the slot and gave it away.

He same thing when he did those dekes, he ran out of room and couldn't do anything. I'd like to see him play with someone like Pleks and maybe Patches, give him some more experienced players to learn from.

No I saw it on TV and it was right after Ryder scored when they turn the camera to the crowd. It was odd.

I'd like to hear from the ''experts'' and armchair coaches in the media that called Therrien's handling of Subban ''dangerous'' and ''inappropriate''. Subban has become a beast and is dominant everywhere on the ice.

Fact is, Therrien has done a great job since taking over. The results are there.

I think I'd settle for SOME sense of offense. You said it, hot potato. He's never looking for an opportunity just getting rid of the puck as quickly as he can. I don't trust turnover stats in the NHL at all, but you have to figure there's some relationship between his shot blocking totals and his propensity to dump the puck off at the earliest possible time.

I have no problem with players being assigned defensive roles but I think a player at the NHL level needs to be able to move the puck in the offensive game when it's appropriate. The 5 on 5 game is so much easier to defend when you know one guy has no ability to make things happen.

Even Bouillon and Murray, as limited as they are seem to be able to get the puck AT THE NET even if they need a carom or something fortunate to happen.

I guess this sounds like Gorges bashing, maybe it's a lack of appreciation for other things but I think this team could lose Gorges and not miss a step . IMHO.

First of all, the idea that Therrien consistently benches guys who aren't playing well is ridiculous. Secondly, no you shouldn't and there shouldn't be exceptions to the rule because there shouldn't be a rule set in stone in the first place, every player should be treated slightly differently and play under a slightly different set of rules (Parcells philosophy). Finally would you bench Crosby in the third down a goal if he had a couple bad periods or was on a 2-3 game pointless streak? Of course not, so that's not how it should work and there should be exceptions.

I think you're right, you can't handle every player the same.

That being said, I don't think Chucky's benching was entirely about his play. I saw it as punishment for a stupid penalty that opened the door for the Leafs late in the 2nd when we were in complete control.

He's a young guy and was clearly bummed by the benching, but I'm guessing he got the message. Be smarter, be more disciplined, goals against late in periods are killers.

That's awesome... Funny how Therrien kept saying they need to score 3 goals to win games.

It was after Ryder's goal and TSN-Habs showed it. I thought it was pretty bad when I saw it.

Is this the longest streak since 2007 that we have a healthy lineup?

He might break a lot of plays for us offensively but he does the same thing for our opposition, last night Gorges was our best defenseman beside the General and PK.

If it was after, that's pretty stupid. Unless the fan was being an *******, which I doubt.
