I hate Desharnais.

And I'm quite upset that Phillip Seymour Hoffman passed away, great artist.

There is no way MB doesn't see what we see. Let's watch what he'll do, but I'm not holding my breath...

The size obsession right now is baffling me. The Jets are a big team, but not a very physical one. We've killed them in most of our recent meetups...and now they suddenly have a better coach. Does that tell you the problem is in average height, or something else perhaps?

Gally driving to the net. The only player who consistently does that.

2nd PP unit was much better than the 1st.

Beaulieu needs more PP time.

Subban needs to get that shot in check again.

The idea is, and I agree with it, that it's better to have a big, average team and then make moves to add smaller-but-more-talented players than have a small, average team and have to make moves to add talented players.

We're starting at a disadvantage and it has less to do with average height and weight and more to do with the fact that our top lines have Moen and Prust on them.

Yes, looking good. The CBC lovefest for Winnipeg has been sickening. We didn't start well but we've had the better chances.

4th line had a good shift. Nice hit by Subban along the boards too.

Right, size is not that important but when half of offense is made of midgets then yea it's a concern....

They've been quite physical against us in this game so far.

The Habs are a small team, but its MT's job to adapt his system around that team, which he's done a horrible job of doing (this year). So yes, you're right.

Well the Jets issues aren't stemming from size, that's one of their team strengths. I don't see why it's baffling to want more size in this particular lineup. Especially when the coach is hell bent on playing a style that needs size.
