I'm the first to complain about Breezer & Lats but tonight what's the point? The team sucked. NOT JUST THESE TWO PLAYERS.

The Habs do need a 4th d-man.

1) Grabovski was benched last year... he sulked, cried, created a problem in the room, and hopped a plane out of town to go talk to his agent.

If you watched Don Cherry after the game you would have seen
2) Tonight Grabovski dived all over the ice anytime someone came near him.

3) The worst offence he gave a ridiculously dirty and malicious butt end into Carey Price's midsection. This was after running price in the second period. THOU SHALL NOT TOUCH THE GOALIE.

That is the new "tap hooking". Calling that makes hockey better and allows the good players to play their game. Or at least that is what the propaganda tells us

When that call is made by the refs they just set themselves up to get whined at from both sides later for not calling anything from a sneeze up. The new rules!

Please refs. Just call the real stuff.

Meanwhile we did enough dumb real penalties we can't afford the unreal ones

There were rumours swirling in the offseason that not only did the entire team develop a hatred for Grabovski after he left the team on the West coast trip last year, but there was major friction with the Kostitsyn brothers. It would seem they never got along to begin with.

Look, I know Lats cant be sent down, I know Lats wasnt the reason why we lost, but Im not blind, I see the kid play and believe me its not pretty, you would expect him at least to win his battles along the board, but he is losing it with ease, what is unacceptable for a kid like him.. He needs a good kick where you know..

On another note, Higgins is also a major desapointment.. He works hard but its leading nowhere, back in his AHL years, I thought he had some decent hands and some decent moves but he looks like he lost everything regarding puckhandling, he even lost efficiency to protect the puck along the board, doesnt use his body like he used to do in the past.. I would like to see at least some flashs of his old but thats something rare..

People should stop *****ing about that butt end on Price. Why?

1) Kostopoulos' hit from behind on Van Ryn which sent him to hospital.
2) Kostitsyn's slew foot on Schenn, very dangerous play going into the boards.
3) Carey Price instigating on Garbs with a shot to the back of the head.
4) Other hits from behind in the game.

First, there were rumors about a rift between the Kostitsyns and Grabovski since the beginning of time...starting in Belarus, continuing to the NHL...apparently no one really got along with Grabovski in the room, for whatever reason.

Tonight they showed on Coach's Corner Grabovski diving, and Koivu (apparently) telling him to cool it. Then they showed Grabs clearly butt-ending Price in the crotch when he was in front of the net, which Cherry thinks was motivation for the Habs trying to pay Grabs back in the third...which is what Sergei tried to do by taking an obvious penalty in going after him.

Generally Simpson and Houghson (sp?) are pretty solid, but I really thought they were piss pour tonight.
Ha! Good point - accurate, too.

Catch-all answer: you don't go after the goalie. Period, end of story. Anybody who supports what Grabovski did tonight knows nothing about the so-called "code of hockey". If he had a problem with Kosto or Andrei, at least take it up with a player. Going after a goalie is chicken ****.

The guy sounds like a dick lol. Yah Grabovski must have said something really offensive to Sergei K because he just went off and wanted to attack him lol. The refs and even his teammates were holding him back.

I didn't see all this diving you are talking about but I sure as hell saw two Leafs get their heads planted in the boards which is 100X more cowardly and dirty than a poke in the chest protector of a goalie.

I saw Grabs dominate the habs tonight with crazy speed and lots of fancy moves. Saw alot of Habs half assing it and talking dirty penalties. Face it, put a habs jersy on Grabs tonight and you'd be praising him.

Everybody couldn't hit the little weasel all at once. But if they could they would

Grabo behaved like a jerk last year. He is just adding to his resume tonite

If he had just stuck to the things he was doing right I would have to compliment him. Multiple dives and a butt end to Price kinda spoiled the chance.

Ah, okay, I always forget that two wrongs make a right, and that all Canadiens' fans condone the aforementioned hits.

I'd post the sarcasm emoticon, but he's smiling.

I wish the Habs would show half the heart I've seen the Leafs show this season. It's so frustrating watchign the Habs the last three or four games. I'm glad they got their as*es handed to them tonight (unfortunately, it was against the Leafs). Hopefully, this is the wakeup call they need.

I'm so sick of seeing Brisebois and O'Byrne out there. We desperately need another quality top 4 defenseman. It's the only glaring weakness I can see. I'd hang on to O'Byrne for the future and depth, but we need a solid dependable guy out there.

These guys better get their ***** together before the Sens game on Tuesday or we're going to see more of the same.

Yes, I did. Kostitsyn poked his stick right into Schenn's skate, causing him to fall awkwardly into the boards. Dirty play.

Well, after that Kovalev hit on Tucker a while ago that seems to be the logic most of you employ.

wow people need to chill. yes we stunk, made worse by the fact it's the leafs on a saturday night. but this team has

18 out of a possible 24 points to start the year.

we stunk tonight. zero work ethic. piss poor in our own zone and again with the selfish penalties. the TK call threw us way off and we never really recovered. one thing i noticed tonight habs have been great on the pk. tonight we gave up i think 3 goals..the reason? not nearly aggressive enough on leafs point men. the kulemin, hagman, grabovski line did what they wanted tonight. we didn't get any forecheck going against them. if we had, we could've done damage to that line.

lastly grabovski's a dick, those two dives on the high stick and slash were pathetic.

Im looking forward to seeing my Sens take on the Habs. Be prepared its going to be a tough game for both sides and a good game to watch as well .

Dirty? If intentional, sure is... I don't think it was.

A slew foot though, as you state? And now it's a stick, eh? Is this stick growing out of his big toe?

Hitting from behind is "within the code"? The code went right out the window when the Habs made those dirty plays before did his play. I don't condone what he did, but I don't think he should be attacked either because the code was broken all over the place tonight.

A lot of dirty play tonight... from the kosto hit to price being run 3 times in a row... i thought kosti bros were dirty until cherry showed what led to it. regardless, the habs are continually being outplayed, outworked and some players should be in the out house. the schedule has not been in their favor w/ so many off days, yet they should be playing better if they want any chance of making a run in the playoffs. players are skating in their own zones and not playing like a team. they were severly outplayed in a loss to anaheim... the minny win was lucky... the isles win was a fluke, the point vs columbus last night was a bonus and tonight was an abomination. they need to get the legs going.

edit: the a.kotsi taking out shenn was bad.

Well I was going to call it a "poking at foot stick" but it didn't really sound right. Are you saying that Kostitsyn accidentally reached nowhere near the puck and conveniently sent Schenn flying? Common sense tells me otherwise.
