Why do you think Maxwell got the start before Sergei?

That's good to hear, methink.

You WANT Carey to care about this team. You WANT him to wish for the team's well-being, as he'll be ready to jump on the Ice in the case Halak has a bad night, and he'll give his very ****ing best.

He'll work to get back to the top. He learned that not everything in life is due.

My guess is that it doesn't have to do with his game performance but moreso his general attitude, preparation, composure and work ethic at practice etc...

Just a hunch on my part but I don't think the kid has his head on the right way. Tons of talent, it's really too bad.

I don't see how that's funny. Price has lost his cool sometimes, but he's under the most pressure and it's not easy.

You're very naive if you believe it was all **** and giggles. Pretty sure if he was just as bad down there.

Nah, actually, it's a 2-way thing.

If Sergei got in the work earlier this year, this wouldn't be an issue.

But JM is purposely singling him out. FFS, he benched him because he couldn't cover 2 players at once and gave PP time to Darche after he teed up a point shot for the Caps which led to a goal.

He barely gave any PP time to Sergei (if any) down the stretch even though he was a huge part of the team's success.

Martin's not willing to let the past go and now Sergei has had enough. Time will tell which stubborn idiot will be right in the end.

I hope we trade him to the Western conference and don't keep him and wait until he pulls a Perezhogin. They'll light us up if we trade them (Andrei and Sergei) to an Eastern team imo.

I think what we just seen proves why he is not playing in the first place.

We are playing a very tight hockey. It's a team plan, it's a team strategy. You have to do everything right when you don't have the puck, and do not try to be the little star of the match when you do.

Kovalev would be a liability with that kind of hockey. A. Kostityn is proving to be one. Sergei? He'd wreck us off by doing what he very well cares to do, not what the team needs.

He ain't a team player. When he plays well (and it happens often), he plays for himself, not the team.

I can understand his fustration, seeing Maxwell playing in his place, but it still gives him no right to act that way, he must act like a professional. On the other hand, props to Carey for being professional and calling out his teamate.

I never commented on how boucher was king, it was more a swipe at JM for being useless when it comes to youngsters. Sergei is no saint but JM being bad with young players is pretty much common knowledge around the league.

What kind of response is this? A personal attack because I believe what Boucher himself said? If it had been so bad in hamilton, and if boucher didn't have such great things to say about Sergei, do you REALLY think JM would have ever iced him again?

You're niave. Who's to say sergei hasn't always been giving mediocore efforts off the ice and for all we know he was a ****** in the lockerroom. We don't know this, but the truth is starting to come out. Maybe this is frustration, maybe it's him not wanting to work for his spot.

At beginning of year he asked for a trade, he didn't even try to earn a spot. So this isn't a recent issue IMO.

Seriously people need to stop digging around for a reason why Sergei isn't playing, and just see it for what it is on the surface. Sergei is just not playing with enough heart, and not playing his role in JM's system well enough. That's it. He has more skill than Tom Pyatt, but Pyatt does EXACTLY what the coach asks of him.

I'd say 90% of goals scored against us are because we didn't get the puck deep enough on a line change dump. It's really simple stuff like that guys like Pyatt and Moore do to a tee. How many times have you seen guys like AK, SK, and Pouliot mess this simple play up? Thats why they get demoted, benched or put into the press box. Playing hard, finishing checks, executing simple plays: that's all that JM is asking. I'm sick and tired of people defending these guys; it's time for them to wake up and do what they're told.

Comon man, we don't know how he is off the ice, we can only speculate. Yeah it appears like his attitude isn't that great, but it doesn't mean JM has handled the situation perfectly either. All i know for sure is that dressing ben maxwell and mathieu darche over sergei isn't icing the best team we can.

It's nothing personal but people should relax with boucher. Not you specifically but I hear so much nonsense about "boucher wouldn't do this" but would boucher win us hockey games? I get you didn't mean it that way, but it's starting to annoy me. Lever was good with our young guys too! It's the AHL, you allow them to make mistakes, it's a developmental league. NHL is THE league, there's a big difference in how the coaches can treat their players.

Right now JM has a team that wasn't supposed to be in the playoffs knocking out the President's trophy winners and split 1-1 coming back home with the SC Champs. Gorges, Subban, Maxwell, Lapierre, O'byrne only to name a few seem to be playing at the top of their game under the same coach right now.

There is no argument here. This is SKosts "fault" (I don't like that word because it's more of a personality trait more than a conscientious effort to be an ass) and nobody elses.

You either have the team warrior mentality or you don't.

**** second chances. This is the playoffs. You do your job you are in. If you can't, you can watch the game from the press box. Very simple.
