I'm kind of enjoying the celebrating on the 'ruins board. Their franchise has been a pathetic excuse against us for the longest time, they won tonight, good for them.
This was just a combination of everything going badly for the Habs..when was the last time we had this many fights? It happens so rarely, but when it does, people start crying out that we need fighters.
I'm glad Pacioretty has blossomed this year because AK is just brain dead and his time in Montreal is pretty much done.
I defended him to death over the years but he'll never become anything but a minus in this environment. This is not an easy place to play for guys like him. Hey, he's not the only one... countless guys in this league would be scared to death to be expected to score in this town. But you can't play in Montreal and be that lost most of the time like he is. Look at the hesitation before he challenged the point on one of the goals tonight. Or how often the other teams D pinches on him because they know he's not paying attention.
It will be interesting to see what Gauthier does over the next 2 weeks.
Awesome post and I agree totally. He would be great in Phoenix or some other place like that. He is not what they wanted him to be and he has to go.
If we could somehow snag Umberger, that would be amazing.
That would be great. Even Bogosian, I am surprised he is available..if we have to overpay so be it..what was he a top 5 picks a few years back? He is a tough as nails dman too who can play the PP. Give em Weber, Maxwell wtvr lol.
The fact that he's all you guys have to talk about whenever Lucic gets brought up LONG AFTER HE HAS LEFT is what is sad. There's this "Lucic never fights someone his own size" notion every single time the Bruins play the Habs, yet his fight card shows him clearly fighting middle and heavyweights throughout his career. I'm asking why this still gets talked about...on one side you're all saying "oh, look at the Bruins fighting non-fighters...bunch of goons", yet on the other side you're saying "Lucic should fight someone his own size"...really...who may I ask? He doesn't have any options and he's playing with emotion AS ANY HOCKEY PLAYER SHOULD BE IN A GAME LIKE THIS...
I get it, you hate the guy. But the fact that there's a belief you actually have a good reason to use this "Lucic is a ***** who never fights heavyweights" game after game where you see him is ridiculous.
GOONER....and a punk he goes after smaller guys ...Your team choked against the flyers last year while we with these little guys went right to the semi's..There is no need for goons on this team we were never a fighting hockey team..Tough yes fighting never...Teams like the bruins and the nordiquies of the 80s went nowhere with goons have fun with the win... were are a very unhealthy team right now so you won one....and you beat up and bullied guys who don't fight your a classless organization I hope you never ever win a championship while your alive
