I did not see the game, but letting in last minute goals really seems to be Price's stock in trade. Another poster said it seems the team does not want to win in front of Price...I wonder if that is true. Whatever happens with Price, I'm pretty sure it will not be in Montreal I do wish him well.
The only ones to blame for this loss are the players dude. YOU ARE A PATHETIC PERSON for blaming Martin. How about the players execute and finish all the chances they had to make this game out of reach? How about the players get it out of their zone for the last 4 minutes of the game?
This loss HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MARTIN.
martin is at fault BIGTIME here, how a coach can make a mistake like putting cammalleri and andrei k on the ice with a minute to go KNOWING that the goalies about to be pulled and theyre about to be down a man
theres absolutely no excuse for that, its called BAD COACHING, it resulted in a goal, so yes, we can put some blame on martin, who the **** do you think you are tellin us who we can and cant blame, if you cant see the terrible coaching decisions made in the last 3 minutes then u need to open your freakin eyes kid
Ryan Miller is the best goalie in the world, it isn't that easy to score more than two goals in a game against him.
And we probably would've got the puck out if we had a defensive line with guys like Moore on it instead of Cammalleri who hasn't played in 2 ****ing months and isn't known for his defensive game in the first place.
Do you remember who was playing for the last 3 minutes on the PK. Martin sent out his best line of the night, OH NOES HINDSIGHT MARTIN IS AN IDIOT.
You can microanalyze the last two minutes if you want, simple fact is the team has multiple chances to put this game away, and didn't, and that simply has NOTHING to do with coaching.
I don't get why Martin had BOTH Cammy & AK out there when Buffalo pulled Miller for the 2nd time with 90 seconds left. Yes, there was an empty net so you have ONE of those guys out there. Not both. They are not exactly defensive aces. In fact, AK is a piss poor defensive player. Both he & Cammy were weak against the wall.
Sabres suck. They are Miller and that is all.
The big shot count comes from too many PKs especially that 6-on-4. I'm not surprised that with a smaller line-up we end up taking more penalties & give up more shots. Moen & Lappy can make a difference on the wall.
This is always happens when someone says shutout. Somebody did it in the 2nd intermission and we lose. It always seems to curse not just a SO but the entire game altogether. Price has gone almost 2 years without a shutout and I swear he could have one and we'd give up a goal wit 0.1 seconds left to tie a game at 1. This team finds new ways to help the other team break Price's goose egg. This reg. season can't be over soon enough so we can at least see the Habs play meaningful, do-or-die hockey. Then we'll see if we've got heart.
They should put a script so that if anyone says "shutout" in the GDT it comes out "*******".
I will never be a Jacques Martin fan. Never. After the guy we cannot name, Martin is going to handle the other talented youngsters the same way he did with him.
If you don't move your little legs fast and don't totally adhere to the system. You're done. After the "bring me 20 Tom Kostopoulos" of Guy Carbonneau last year, here goes the "bring me 20 Tom Pyatt" of Jacques Martin. Same old, same old. Mind you, I like Pyatt as a role filler. But when he becomes an important asset on your top 6, you are blinded by the fast legs and in deep deep trouble.
Might as well trade Pouliot right away back to Minny and go get Cal Clutterbuck or something....
As far as the game goes, well **** happens. We got 1 point.
This had everything to do with Martin. But not like poster Pernel Karl said. It's the opposite, the Habs tried to protect the lead too much.
Martin's system doesn't work in 2010. It's that simple.
You are so wrong.
First of all, both goals were the results of powerplays. You can't trap on a penalty kill.
Secondly, Obie's penalty was the result of a defensive pinch and a careless stick. Defensive pinches are not part of a pure trapping system.
For the ENTIRETY OF THE GAME, we took away their space and time, and kept them shooting to the outside. Carey had to make maybe half a dozen tough saves. Explain to me exactly how Martin cost his team the game.
