Then, you keep Laraque. But I think S.Kost is still injured, and I am not too comfortable with D'ago.

Never want to see Lapierre fighting in the 3rd in a tight CRUCIAL game!

Getting himself tossed for 5...

Rookie mistake

Do you want a list of all the veteran players that have taken super bad penalties during a third period, that cost precious points and victories ?

It was a mistake, maybe. But Gainey was badly outcoached throughout the whole game yeaterday.

2 minutes for a bad penalty is one thing...

but getting tossed for 5 when you the #2 center in a critical game???

amateurish

ps. Don't get me wrong, I appreciated his combativeness... but wrong place wrong time

The good news is that he likely learned a lesson

5- No BGL during PP

6- Use Latendresse for godsake... !!! ON PP

7- Plekanec on the 4th line at best !


My line up

Tanguay-Koivu-Kovalev

Latendresse-Lapierre-A.Kost (need some 2nd line offense)

Higgins-Metropolit-Kostopoulos (a real shut down line)

Stewart-Plekanec-Laraque (no more than 5-7 minutes, please)


Gorges-Komisarek

Hamrlik-Dandenault

Janik (???)- Brisebois

Price or Halak
1. Carbo learned a lot of his coaching techniques from BG.
2. O'B out for tonight, but he should be back in soon. I mean really soon. He's been sitting too much and for too long.
3. Yes
4. Yes
5. Something he tried once, and it didn't work. He'll try something else next time. Well not 5 on 3 anyways.
6. Should have. Didn't get too many chances tho, and that's because they weren't skating like they had been the previous games so they didn't draw too many penalties.
7. Good place for Pleks I think.

As far as your lineup is concerned, switch Dandy with Breezy. A couple of reasons. Breezy is more familiar Hamrlik. And in the absence of Markov and Schneider, our transition game suffered greatly last night. Even though Breezy is the master of the stupid pass, he's also the best passer we have left on the back end.

#2- Laraque and Stewart should not be playing at the same time.That 4th line was scarry last night giving up the puck WAY TOO MUCH.
#3-The Habs should never let the other team see them holding up from going into the corners because they are scared of getting hit.....ESPECIALLY AGAINST THE SENS !!! We get beat around by the Sens so whats gonna happen when we play the Bruins ?????
It`s not over yet but they gotta play like they did Sat nite against the Dirty Leafs id we`re gonna make it in.

Don't jump into the river just yet.

Strangely O'byrne played 0:00 in the third... I guess the coaching staff was really impressed with his game and decided to keep him on the bench to avoid losing him due to an injury.

And that lead to more minutes for the 5 other guys, including Janik. Why Bob did not put Dandy back on D for the third period ? And play your reamining 9 forwards (minus Stewart & Laraque).

They were hit badly by the Sens, And I am still surprised that Stewart and Laraque did not contribute more to the hitting aspect of the game during the first two periods.

O'Byrne is terrible and was brutal last night. He didn't do anything positive and if he had played a decent game like some of you suggest, then why didn't he even step on the ice for the 3rd? He was a disaster anytime he touched the puck or the puck was in the defensive zone. This team is in the thick of a tight playoff race and honestly he's not good enough to be playing right now. Janik, while not great, I thought played ok last night and has more experience than O'Byrne. Dandenault should move back on D, O'Byrne to the pressbox and Andrei back in.

Posted this in the GDT.. and I'd love to see the lineup for tonight.

Tanguay - Koivu - Kovalev
Higgins - Plekanec - D'Agostini
Latendresse - Lapierre - Kostitsyn
Stewart - Metropolit - Kostopoulos

Gorges - Komisarek
Hamrlik - Brisebois
Janik - Dandenault

Price
Halak

* Laraque was useless last night.. if not downright horrible.
* D'Agostini gets a chance to step it up after a long layoff. Lets see if this kid has what it is takes in crunch time.
* Kostitsyn in the line-up by default as O'Byrne was so bad that Dandenault has to play defense.
* Give the start to Halak if Price isn't 100%.

That lineup looks good to me and a whole lot more offensive than the one we saw last night. Last night's lineup had little to no offensive creativity (outside of the top line). D'Agostini and Kostitsyn can put the puck in the net, and no offense to Dandenault and Kosto but they don't do it very well.

He didn't deserve the 2nd one but the 1st one was so stupid,we complain about players hitting ours and then we go cross check others in the face

At 1 point in the 1st period,not once but 4 times did he try to clear the puck out of the zone on the lower boards and he failed all 4 times,he ****in sucks so much that even Janik took some shifts in the 3rd period instead of O'Byrne.Gotta open your eyes and don't tell me we are going to trade this guy and he will become good cause he's ****in terrible and I hope he gets traded to a team within our division

Have you watched him the last 2-3 weeks? He's been putting up a decent amount of points and has been simply awesome on the PK, add to that he won't be getting much of a raise (if at all) in the summer. Yeah it'd be a great idea to get rid of him...

Last year we thought him and Plekenec would combine for nearly $8M. Now, I'm almost certain we have get them both under contract for less then $5M.

Higgins - $2.2M
Plekanec - $2.5M

OR

Higgins - $2.5M (extra year)
Plekanec - $3M (extra year or two)

As much as i HATE Obryne, when I think about it, it was really only the penalties that seemed over and above what his max playing level portential is. He did actually have a "normal" game.

note that he only came close to scoring in our empty net last night. positive? and yes, I would like Weber or Subban even if they end up disappointing. Can't decide who. I feel like Subban would be more physical AND has the shot but Weber DEF has the shot we need. Then again, let's see how this whole Schneider thing unravels.

they wanted more experience, and that's Gainey's word, and they won big time in this third period did they?

Sure, he was put on the 4th line to ease the pressure off him and relax and get back into his grove, but the ****in' guy can't finish. I'm sick of seeing this guy get 4 great opportunities to score and either get one, or ****in' miss them all. The guy has great speed and makes the opposition think when he's out there killing penalties, but I wouldn't worry about this guy. If he hits the net it's a plus, but he usually shoots it into the chest of the goalie, or way the **** over the net.
