Your Analysis of our D tonight

Bouillon : You can bash him like you want, but he was clearly our best D. Made great plays and few mistakes. He gave his 110% and blocked some shots. He saved a goal on McEachern

Komi: Was steady. Made few mistakes and gave good checks. Didn't seemed too slow out there. Handled the big guys really well. Had two or three good shots, but they went wide. I'd like to see him hit the net.

Dandenault: Played good. I liked how he played against the thornton line. Wasn't overly offensive, but was great in his own end.

Markov: Was ok. Made a couple of mistakes and I thought he was trying to hard. Made long and hard pass that were intercepted. Played good in his own end, but that'sit. Anyway, it's only the first game.

Rivest: Thought he was bad. Didn't made good pass and seemed sometimes slow. Was always 2nd on the puck and made a lot of mistakes in his own end. Didn't use enough his body.

Souray: BAD!! That was terrible. Made a lot of mistakes and got cut two or three times. He gave away the puck at least 10 times and was slow. He has a deadly shot tho.

P.S. I didn't put this in the GDT because it's hard to find exactly what your looking for in these kind of threads.

I loved Komisarek. If he had leveled Axelson, the game would have gained more spirit. He was looking more and more like the Komi we saw in films from his College years.

He made some strong outlet passes. And I loved the way he contained the boards.

The guy's going to be our best d-guy.

I would rank them like this for today

Bouillon
Dandenault
Komisarek
MArkov
Rivet (tough he wasn't that bad)
Souray (horrible...almost invisible)

My friends and I all started to stand up when we saw him line Axelsson up... that would of been nasty.

i agree... bouillon played soooo well, komi did great also, he seemed to have more ''confiance'' (confidence ? confident ? spl ? )

Dandenault was better than i expected... but im not sure if i wouldn't put komisarek 2nd before him in my ranking from what i've seen tonight... pretty much a tie

Rivet was very good. Best D after Bouillon. C'mon it's not because he's overpaid that he can't be fairly good.

Komi...played good in third period, somewhat shaky sometimes. Hitting Axelsson would have give him a crazy but still, was physical nonetheless.

Souray...ouch, ouch, ouch. Terrible, clumsy, slow, always late.

Markov, same old, show flashes of what he can do.

Dandenault, good, safe, effective, hitting is not his game but still take his man out. Really liked him. I'm comfortable with it.

Big big big koudos to Bouillon. Was the best. I don't understand all the bashing he's getting here. We gotta get over is small size and appreciate his work. He hit Thornton hard once.

I thought Bouillon played great, but honestly I thought Dandenault played even better, only less physical.

Komi was steady, nothing special IMO

Rivet just didnt stand out, i dont remember anything worth mentioning

Markov was good on the D side, but offensively he seemed lost, which is weird for him. I hoped all game long to see one of his slap shots, had many opportunities but would do passes to anyone... dunno why

Souray made some CRAZY HUGE mistakes, especially in the first... some nasty turnovers in our zone. At least he was able to hit a few guys

Komi was gonna kill Axelsson with a HUGE hit on the boards in the middle zone, but Axelsson let himself fall to the ice to avoid it

Bouillon is probably the most underrated player of the NHL on this board and in the NHL.

I don't care what any of you guys say... he's small, but he stands his own against bigger guys. He hits pretty well guys that try to get past him near the board.

Doesn't turn the puck over in his zone.

Intelligent player.

He's a solid D. If he wasn't so small, everybody would call him a dependable #3 D. He doesn't even play small, but because of his size, people call him a 7th D...

The only guy of ours that looked really bad tonight on D was Souray. The rest were average to good. I thought Bouillon and Komisarek were the best. But Sheldon, man, give your head a shake. That looks like last playoffs' Souray, which scares me. Hope he picks it up as the season progresses. We'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

I agree on almost everything, but not entierly on Markov. Strangely, he had a bad game on the offensive side. But in our territory, he was everybite as good as Bouillon, just less flashy in his plays.

Am I the only one who thought Rivet looked terrible tonight. He was backing up WAY too much whenever Boston was breaking into the zone. On one rush, he was at the hash marks as the player was gaining the zone. Way too passive for a slower player. I know he'll pick it up though, he's a gamer.

Souray also disappointed me, but he did get a couple redemption points for keeping the puck in the zone and getting it in the slot on the last goal.

On the bright side, Cube and Dandenault looked great to me. They were both rocksteady.

AMEN to that. Iwas just gonna post same: Bouillon is by far the most Underrated player on the Habs certainly. I thought he was the best D by far for us tonight , hence star#1 . He's one of our most Consistent + Dependable D.

Kom got better later in the game.....Markov was shaky + seemed lost (some else said tha t too)....Dand.....was OK......Rivet, didn't notice him really......Souray...he'll have a much better game in NY + TO I expect.

So did I, I thought he played his type of game and didn't try to do to much. He effectively took out his man and didn't take any penalties doing it.

I was pleasantly surprised by Dandenault's game tonight. He played a physical game, something he doesn't have the reputation to do.

Completely agree on all points, although I don't think Rivet was that bad, he was just below average.

As someone pointed out, I was very surprised and pleased with Dandenault's physical play. Awesome to see.
