Blame it on Kovy.

Yup, that is what the french media is doing. Habs getting pwned 6-0 and that's Kovalev fault. Everybody was expexting Kovalev to have a monster performance today but he didnt really get the chance to do lots. Seriously, he didnt get many chances to make this team win today. When you are losing 6-0, what do you want him to do? Seriously.. i hate these french media!

Poor little Kovalev, he's getting some blame......have no idea why a 4.5 million guy with 13 goals would get any blame, that's so unfaird, it's definately the french medias's fault if he didn't play well today....I believe Michel Bergeron was centering him while Villeneuve was on the wing as well.....

Obviously nobody is ready to be accountable for their actions and that's the biggest problem of this team. But then in the end, this whole little sad season will happened 'cause of the french medias. If so, people will have to agree that let's keep that team as it is and shut up the french medias, that way we'll surely have a 100-point season....

Why? Face it, Kovalev is a marked man in the locker room. And don't believe the spin doctors: Carbo is not a pleased man after the russian interview.

Kovalev, Koivu, every freaking veteran is to be blamed here. They are not showing up.They are not worthy of the sweater.

Bring back Kjell Dalhin.

I'm surprised you've joined this witch hunt.

Everyone here harps on about how the team doesn't have a true #1 center. While that's patently false, the point remains valid: this team's core isn't good enough. That doesn't mean Koivu or Kovalev or Markov need to be replaced, but it does mean that the core needs to be shaken up. Ideally, a player of Elias/Alfredsson calibre injected. Failing that, a core player that brings unique attributes (eg. Shanahan), along with a progression from youth and strong coaching would be sufficient. But the objective should be clear: the core needs to change, and that doesn't mean subtracting any of the current ingredients.

Why blaming Kovalev? I didn't watch the game, but apparently, the whole team sucked, not only Kovalev. Those players need to enjoy playing together, and it's not the coach that will help them doing that. Blame in on the players, not on people who actually are doing well their job.

Carbonneau's job is to get the best out of his roster. He's not getting the best out of this roster. The players can be blamed, but the coach is not doing his job well, as you claim.

Jean-Charles Lajoie = Moron.

Some French journalists/reporters are worth to be listened/read ... But they are a minority.

It wouldn't be so bad if they had better talent at the core. They don't. Montreal probably has the worse talent in the conference right now when it comes to its core players. Well, Florida maybe, but that's about it.

I agree with you. I don't wish Koivu to be traded. But he's not the guy whom this team should rely on.

Kovalev, I would trade in a sec. It would give 4.5 M $ more in leaway to Gainey. Sic. Samsonite.

Markov is talented, but I believe he needs to be surrounded by a better cast, because he's been overused. He'd be a perfect 21 minute guy, but not a 26-27 minute man. He gets hit a lot. That can take its toll on a player.

If Montreal had a definite 1st-2nd defenceman besides him, that would work wonders.

Let's face it: our best center in the last 2 months has been Pleks. He works his arse off and he produced somewhat. Plus, he's solid on PK.

since the important stretch started, Koivu has been as visible as Jack Todd in Vietnam.

Carbo can't force they players to work hard, how's he suppose to do that? he's benched players, cut there ice time, i'm not sure what other options he has. what do you suggest Carbo do that he hasn't done yet?

We all saw Kovalev tear it up in the olympics, same for Koivu, so why can't they work with the same pride and passion when they play for the Habs as they did for their country? I say we go Brent Sutter style and whoever isn't proud to wear the jersey sits on the bench. Kovalev threatening to leave the team if the media continue to embarrass him was ridiculous, you don't see that happen with the Yankees and their media is a hundred times that of the Habs.

That counts for all journalists/reporters.

And calling Lajoie a moron is a insult to morons.

My should we stick to this roster? The worst part is that we are stuck with at least two contracts for 8 M$ that I wish were UFAs at the end of the season.

By the way MIke8, read the first post: it`s about not only the medias, but the french medias........... this thread should be close like the previous one anyway.
