Does somebody want to tell me what the hell Maxwell is still doing up with the club when there are so many others more deserving and can actually contribute to the team without being invisible except for when he takes a penalty!? The fact that Metro and Darche played a phenomenal game despite having dead weight on their line is pretty incredible!
As i love to do, i'm going to spin this the other way and look at the positive aspect of Maxwell's current situation. No he hasn't shown much. Yes, White would probably have fitted in better. However, Maxwell can only improve and gain confidence as an NHL player by playing on a team that's winning and with a couple of players that have a boatload of confidence. Sure it has been a slow maturation, but i think he'll be a player that once he gets it, he'll be a really solid player. Its easier for players who are already physical to come into the league and fit in right away. For players who aren't, it's definitely a longer process, and Maxwell is one of those players. He just needs to be stronger along the boards and quicker in his decision making. Look at Andrei right now and at the beginning of the season; he's having the exact same kind of problems. His confidence in his decision making is not there. We all know though, that after a while he just "got it" and he was off to the races. Maxwell needs that goal or scoring play where he gets his confidence going--i think if we just give him a chance it will happen.
Rock' my baby, on a tree top............zzzzzzz.......zzzzzzzzzzz.........z zzzzzz
Maxwell with the only goal.
you should have the title of a Habs fan ripped from you !
3-2 Habs in a shootout ! it will be a very close game, P Quinn's team always play a close game against the Habs, expect Edmonton to try and intimidate the Habs early.
Everyone remember they want to finish last, we want to finish first.
Halak`s record against inferior teams is pretty solid. Something like 11-1 IIRC
sorry, not much of a board guy, but what does IIRC stand for?
and for tonight, i believe if the habs come out flyign as they did against the lightning they will succeed in the win. but if they get too cocky and edmonton slips one by halak, our confidence can break mighty quickly and the oil can gain theres quickly as well..
akost will own tonighttt
No french canadian goalie in net! Halak facing a very underwhelming team (He normally owns bad teams), coming off a 5 goal game... Getting my free wings from the tampa game tonight at the bell center Cage au Sports... hoping to go back there tomorrow!
Everything is pointing to a win, but thats when you have to be most careful!
Hopefully tonight is the night we completely dominate a team we're clearly better then. Motivation? How about the shelacking they put on us last year around this time. I think the final score was like 7-2...
