Outshot and outscored

The Habs have been outshot 1719 to 1663 this year and outscored 163 to 162. They are lucky to be a .500 hockey team never mind one that has 64 points in 56 games. We are deluding ourselves if we think we are Stanley Cup contenders at this point. This team isn't as good as it record indicates.

As individuals the players have a lot of talent but as a team it isn't working. I feel there is a sense of urgency among the players but they aren't a cohesive group on the ice. They are just a bunch of players running around in a million different directions.

The knee jerk reaction approach is getting any results... what do you think should be done.

Go back to December 5, 1995 and fire Mario Tremblay, that would pretty much fix everything

Rather, go back to October and leave Demers and Savard in place.

Shots don't concern me as much as scoring chances.

Also, you get blown out in a couple of games and it makes a difference in the numbers.

Stats also don't always tell the full story. And I think most Habs fans realize that this is not a Cup contender in so much as this is a young solid playoff team on the upswing.

I think the biggest thing we need to do is not panic & have some patience. Of course, addressing weaknesses on the team and in the system (e.g. #2 centre and another top D) by leveraging strengths on the team and in the system (wingers and goaltending) is the other.

Trade the deadweight that don't want to play hard every night and that don't want to play for Carbo. Get a bunch of players that want to win, score goals and go to the net every game. And get some big physical players too....we need somebody in our lineup to go our and scare the other teams and make them hurry their passes and stuff. Intimidation is half the game!
