I have to agree. and it's definitely time to scale back Kovy's minutes as well and turn him a bit more into a powerplay specialist. He just isn't a threat 5 on 5 and is becomes increasingly more a liability. I think he is playing hurt.
I liked the speed and the passing of this line earlier and when I watch the Habs it's Koivu, AK and D'Agostini that stand out the most on forward. Higgins also brings the hustle. So time to make them a line again. Koivu - Kovy experiment is done. and bring Begin back into this team as well. Laraque to the press box for all away games. he can't help this team right now. at home, maybe against a bigger opponent, you dress him to get the crowd into the game with a scrap.
Slew foot no way cause where was the stick of the Canucks players. Ak46 lost his balance on that play because of that stick (usually a penalty).
By the way no penalty for the Canucks yesterday, Strange ?
Watch the box score of the game.
