Team missing 4 of its top 7 defenseman...

Team missing 2 of its top 6 forwards...

Team has three young forwards take HUGE unpredictable steps backwards in their development.

...but yes, blame the GM and the goalie. Sure, why not?

Ryder first star....my god, if that isn't poetic justice.

Guess he wasn't a bust....and I noticed he was on the ice with just over a minute left, getting the confidence nod from Julien.

New darkest day in Habs history April 20th.

All the more reason to hope it's over Wednesday. Maybe if we really get slaughtered it will provoke some big changes. This has been a Centennial to remember, but for all the wrong reasons...

No excuses, but what would the Bruins look like without Chara,a half healthy Wideman on defense.

We have looked like crap, but we are missing important players.

With all due respect, speak for yourself. If my life depended on it, I could definitely score a goal.

We showed no urgency in the third, by urgency I don't mean in the Offesive zone, but in our defensive zone we still decided to let them enter the zone easily. We needed a strong defensive performance, we didn't have one.

It wasn't Price's fault. He was a bit too deep on the Thornton goal, but the rest weren't his fault.

Komisarek isn't playing his best hockey, but the whole team has been shuffled up due to injuries.

Markov, Lang, Schneider, Tanguay... That has quite the effect on the lineup, and we're not deep enough to beat the Bruins without them.

That's the least-plausible part of the lineup.

Quit blaming Price, maybe start blaming the General Manager for not keeping players or making key trades and just going with a team of mostly 3rd and 4th liners and not doing anything to help them advance.

I can't wait to hear Gainey is stepping down on Friday.

Next GM. Clean slate, 11-12 UFA spots to fill and the need to trade away the useless and cowardly players in Sergei and Andrei and their linemate Tomas.

Other than a lucky signing in Lang and a trade that worked in Schneider what did Gainey do to help this team this year???

Nothing.

You need to win, 2 players in Schneider and Tanguay supposedly can play and you make the decision to scratch them???

Great plan Bob.

don't make too much sense now.

I do agree with you 100% but that doesn't explain the complete lack of fight after the 3rd Boston goal.

Yeah what an epic fail by Gainey. Halak robbed some games for the habs this season. Can't remember Price doing the same. But good choice with Price Mr Gainey.

And that whole Laraque thing. What a disappointment Gainey has been in the playoffs.

Montreal just got beat by a better team... nothing spectacular.
It's been a roller-coster season but it was still fun... sometimes hehe

All I wish is that we get another markov type of defensemen and that we get rid of Hamrlik's 5.5millions... In a perfect world we would have Markov Bouwmeester Komisarek and Beauchemin as our Core D.

Seriously O'Byrne and Weber were the better D. Not good for winning games. Can't blame Price too much as two goals is not very good for winning games. Habs aren't scoring enough. Lucky we kept Higgins otherwise it would of been very ugly.

We showed that this was a glorified version of the Hamilton Bulldogs on the ice. Full of guys who had never played together and were very, very nervous.

The team couldn't complete a breakout pass. Passes were off, defensemen were getting confused and on the wrong sides of the ice and forwards were breaking out to try and be the hero too fast.
