Last paragraph, maybe a bit of a knock to Atlanta.

Welcome back Mathieu!

If we lose the last 2 on this trip, can't wait to see what he thinks about the atmosphere and the pressure.

Was nice seeing him though. Bring back memories.

Isn't that a mistranslation?

"Plus il y a de pression, mieux tu joues. C'est plus facile de jouer à Montréal quand tu fais fi des distractions. "

The more pressure, the better you play. It's easier to play in Montreal when you ignore the distractions.

Well the thing about Ottawa is that I don't think it will last. Another thing is, the Habs have started to look a bit better in the last two games, and such a streak IMO can't last for such a team with such depth. The Habs have problems that can be fixed because they are problems that aren't related with the level of talent on the team. Its much harder to get more talent through draft trade and FA, than to make good players play better. To me, Ottawa is still much weaker than the Habs, and the bubble they are running on will soon burst.

one thing you cant discredit about the sens is the fact they have the "big 3" and when those guys are playing at their best the sens are not an easy team to beat by any means

Any team can give any other team a run for their money on any given night.

Ottawa has 3superstars, but that doesn't make them a good team.
Look at how TB was..look at the struggles Pittsburgh are having..and the same thing happened to Ottawa.

oh i know that.. especially given how we've been playing as of late and i wont deny what you said but given elliott has been playing well and the players other than the big 3 seem to have been stepping up (at least vermette has) and when you combine that with the big 3, the team isnt necessarily going to be a pushover or a team that wont or cant keep playing well (obviously they will lose games between now and the end of their year but they do have talent on that roster that should help them win some games)

What games were you watching? They were totally dominated by Colorado and won because of Halak. They were also outplayed by Vancouver for 2 full periods before showing some life in the 3rd when the game was out of reach.

I think that was the first time I heard those words in the same sentence as the Habs in nearly three weeks. I hope its a good sign.

What part of "the habs started to LOOK A BIT BETTER" don't you understand????

In Vancouver, most people were assuming the Habs would get totally blown, they didn't, in fact, they kept the score to 2-1 until the 3rd period. That is when the game got out of reach with two quick goals. Also, saying Colorado totally dominated us is a bit far fetched. Didn't Buffalo win against us 3-2 because Miller totally saved their ***** in the first period of their last game??? You win because your best player on one night can dominate. On that night it was Miller, on the other night it was Halak, that's what Carbs was talking about when he said it was about time our goalies stole us games, instead of opposing goalies stealing us games. The fact that they have done jsut that is a sign of improvement. Also, in Colorado, after the game was tied up, I didn't see the Avs dominate all that much, which is pretty normal, hockey is a game of momentum and a team is very lucky if they can dominate a game for 60 minutes. What happens is that the Habs don't have much confidence lately and holding on to dear life when they were leading 2-1 in Colorado is an example of that. The improvement lies in that moment where they took the momentum the other way and scored the goal that took them to 3-2. If you can't see that, you might as well quit on hockey.

What I am talking about is improvement. And they have shown a bit of improvement, hence, the played a bit better, which is a start.

Same old problem, you can't make distinctions. Now stop trolling, go spread your BS somewhere else, and if you do reply, try to add some content and not some blank statements that totally ignore what I previously said. I doubt you are capable of that, but anything is possible.

I am very eager to see if this has any effect on firstly the PP and secondly the rush. I don't see it fixing our offensive woes (making all opponents look like all-star defencemen), but maybe...just mayyyybe...this whole intangible chemistry thing will change.

Also...if it wasn't smelling like 93 before, it SURE is now. i.e. OLD. But glad to have a guy like him back. Hopefully it's not the end of Bob's plans though.

I think it will. The breakout pass is vital to a good transition and a good transition is vital to good quality scoring rushes as the opponent D have less time to place themselves and thus look less like all-star defencemen. Thus having a Schneider (who is known to have a good breakout pass) should definately help our offense.

No, they got Schneider because Price's got a new GF who makes him party all night. The Habs management hope that the coming of Schneider will mean the end for Price's new GF.... and altho this might spell another begining for the ex-GF, now with Schneider, for at least one night, at least...
