It's all about Price. When you don't make that first BIG save and let in a goal, the dynamic in the game changes. The team becomes more tentative. Then the next goal produces an even greater lack of confidence. Then the next one begins the process of self-destruction.

Look at Buffalo, Lalime made the big saves, the team recovered. It's all about goaltending. The Habs were playing great until they let in a goal. Their confidence is fragile and tied to the strength of the goaltending. It's that simple.

The pessimism in here is astounding. A lot of folks apparently haven't come to grips with the idea that we are just another average franchise in the league. It's suck I know, but come to terms with it already. The idea that this team will be the NY Islanders next year is ridiculous. We should never have been considered a cup contender last year or going into this year. I never did. I even voiced concerns and was called a poor fan for being so negative when it was just my worries. A lot of my worries came true but I'm not going to brag about being right about our overratedness. If I'm a fairweather fan, what the hell do you call the real alarmists?

All of you defending Price during this game......

I'm not saying this is all his fault but when a goalie starts letting in 5 goals almost every game we have a major problem. That breakaway just now? He should have had that.

Its ok guys, that one wasn't Price's fault either.

All you Price supporters are pathetic, every goal isn't his fault. Halak lets one like that in and he's hung out to dry.

Halak is in tonight, odds are, Habs strike first and its a different game.

Jeez, some people!!!
There's a thing called confidence. And when you see that your goalie is not making a couple of great saves, with the leadership that we have, with the confidence that we already have, we crumble. Which we did tonight.

Everyone, except Gainey and Carbo, can see that Brisebois is an absolute liablity and has been done for a few years.

Nobody but Montreal wanted the guy. If he were waived (even on re-entry) no one would touch him.

Price hasn't played poorly, but...those were saves Halak was making (standing on his head).

Wakey Wakey

worst thing that happened was habs beat vancouver, philadelphia and san jose giving gainey the chance to NOT make any trades.

21,000 idiots are the reason he has done nothing to sign high priced outside players since kovalev 5 years ago WHEN SEATS WERE NOT FULL!


gillette is in it for money, this team probably makes more money than any other team except toronto. that is why the totally incompetant but french speaking gainey is not fired. he has done nothing! in montreal coaching/managing history.

habs havent even played in an EASTERN final series in 16 years.

worst gm in habs history

houle and grundman were far far better

Brisebois isn't even fit to play for Hamilton. He's being undressed out there.

Blame Price or the defense, you can't go around allowing five-plus goals a game regardless of how it happens, and right now Price does that and Halak doesn't, that's the bottom line.

Price melting down caused this slump to happen in the first place in pretty much exactly the same fashion that Theodore caused the slump in 05-06. Goaltending has to pull your team out of those death spirals, and Halak was doing what Huet did that year.

I hope Price will eventually recover, but right now this team needs Halak to win games.

As for people blaming Gainey, about the only thing he could have done to fix this particular problem was acquire a goaltender and possibly trade Price away -- a risky move at the best of times.

WOW DID YOU SEE THE PLAYERS THAT WERE TRADED THIS DEADLINE? ALMOST NONE ARE IMPACT PLAYERS AND GAINEY DIDN'T WANT TO JEAPORDIZE THE FUTURE FOR A SHORT TERM FIX... You're not the GM, so shut the **** up.

If the defense is the shadow of themselves and Carey Price can't make a save to SAVE his life, how is that Gainey's fault. It's the same ****ING team we had last minus minus Streit, and we added Schneider to replace him, SO SHUT THE **** UP IF ALL YOU CAN DO IS COMPLAIN WITHOUT REASON.

****ing don't need any of these whimpy little *****es around here.

The Habs should have picked up a finisher... While others got better, the Habs maintained the status quo.

Hey, as they said on TV.. There's always the 101st year.
