Josh Gorges doesn’t score often.
But when he does …
His first of the season produced a hard-earned road W for the Canadiens.
PRE-GAME AUDIO: Jacques Martin | Jaro Spacek | Travis Moen
Just seeing Martin turns my Dog’s stomach! AND my dog has a strong stomach !
“Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing”
my dogs breath smells like dog food…
Hahha Ralph from the Simpsons right?
Chrisadiens and HabFan10912, one of the few father son tandems on HIO.
you got it.
That one point may keep Martin here for another contract…..
“What is that weird Phoenix cheer?”
The sound of crickets?
Mission accomplished, the count played for a point.
great! we need 5 more minutes of his exciting hockey game. Sure to be rerun on CBC’s “Best games ever” one day.
At least we get a point!
Number 25 in 2012!
After that period, it’s more than we deserve. Now let’s steal one more.
Number 25 in 2012!
I call Chipchura in the SO
Hey, a point is a point.
Diaz has been awful since the openin’ game. He can’t even shoot the dang puck let alone play the body.
Followin’ from that, one would assume Emmy would see more ice time. Given he isn’t, however, bein’ afforded the opportunity, it is probably fair to assume this is really just about him and not Diaz.
Goes back to preseason. Em’s 25 years old, first year in the league, and shows up fat to trainin’ camp. Said it at the time, it says somethin’ about his mindset and he’s gonna ride the wood. It’s not just about a st00pid gaffe. And, yes, I’m obviously speculatin’.
I also expect his situation will markedly – yeah? – improve when Marky’s back on the ice.
Watching this on the Arizona feed is painful. It’s putting me to sleep.
There’s no point in firing JM during the season. That’s just a panic move that isn’t going to make the Habs any less injured, and it’s looking like the playoffs are unlikely even if their new coach were named Toe Bowman.
Let’s ride the season out. Maybe dump some salary at the deadline (let’s trade Gomez for Higgins and McDonagh!). Let JM get promoted upstairs and find a new coach when there is a chance to conduct a patient, careful search.
Full Breezer 4 Life
WHY??? I dont get your logic , do you want us to tank> and why on heavens green earth do you want this fossil ANYWHERE in the montreal Organization?
Damn the Habs had some tough teams through the mid 80’s, I miss that. Those teams did not backed down.
Blah de blah de blad de da. Loser!
Loser point! mission accomplished.
Looks like a lot of the whining sheep are out tonight, eh?
Eller is becoming a favorite of mine
It’s great to have a smurf in front of the net!
i like DD. but just once, i’d like to see eller center cole and pacioretty.
I wanna see PleCs centre Cole and Pactchs more
i have no problem with that either.
What is that weird Phoenix cheer?
by mboone 11:21 PM
The Bulldogs fans do that after a goal is scored in Hamilton, too.
Another quick whistle! PUCK!
Emelin still nailed to the bench, the count with his kitty bar the door insomnia curing shite.
Stop the bleeding, fire Martin
No one in front of the net!
Yup add Emelin to the long list of players JM has given up on.
Hmm, SK, Grabs, AK basically hmmm Emelin, what do these guys all have in common? Actually name me a russian thats not named Markov thats played a regular shift for the habs the last few years?
CAN WE PLEASE JUST GET IT OVER WITH, FIRE JM ALREADY!!
dude we’re missing 6 starters and replaced them with Palushaj! FIRE PG ALREADY!!
PG has 1.5 million or something only, dont give me this shit its all PG’s fault, the only thing PG can be faulted at right now is letting JM STILL COACH THIS TEAM>
Pal-j finally gets a shot on goal.
This gane needs propofol to wake us up.
What exactly did Emelin do wrong? Since when does punishing a grown man work?
He had like 6 hits in the first period, then did a tiny mistake that did not lead to a goal, unlike Diaz
Long shot of Emelin on the bench, learning not to play too physically.
I get the feeling Subban isn’t being allowed to play his ‘game’. I think we need to worry about him as much or more than we do about why is being done to Emelin
I’ve got it, it’s the mo-ustache, Diaz needs to shave the mo-ustache, it’s messing with his equilibrium.
Emelin looked like he was looking up to check the time hoping he doesnt miss his flight back to Russia
I loved Diaz & now I hate his guts.
Yup, that sounds like love. lol
Can we send him to the Dogs?, let Emelin play!
You do not know what your talking about!
genuflect when you say that.
Moen first in the shootout?
3 weeks ago I said that Diaz looked like a minor midget out on the ice. 3 weeks ago I got hammered by the Hab faithful, who were unwilling to follow my lead. Now do you believe me? This is a man’s game played by big strong men. Diaz does not fit into that categorie. Diaz, Cammy, Gio, DD, Gomez, Pleks, Webber, too small as a collective group. These guys make up 25% of the roster. Habs will never win anything with the core of the team being this small. This is not a new revelation!! Does management not see this? How could they not?
Go Habs Go!!
And now the famous tie-protection strategy …
Pathetic predicatbility!! Emelin, our most physical defenseman, sits for a mistake after only a couple of games of experience. JM implements prevent defence after 2 periods. Habs get bottled in their own end and get muscled off the puck for a goal. Just pathetic. How long can this stupidity last? It is so irritating.
1-2-2 JMs playing for the tie yay!
Damn iPhone…. Let’s try this again
I hope that reporter from TSN 990 (Jessica?) asks Martin wtf Emelin is still benches but Diaz is back out there right after another mistake… The last time she asked a tough question that Martin didn’t like he seemed to have listened
The answer everyone already knows is cause Emelin is russian
Hab nerds here are the equivalent to PJ Stock is to sports journalism
I refer you to the case of Herp v. Derp.
P.S. Nice grammar.
Diaz is not an NHL caliber d-man. We need Markov and Campoli.
Is it only me or does it look like PK has been told hes not allowed to cross the blue line in the offensive zone or something? Compared to last year, this year he almost looks like hes playing like Gill.
Wish Kirk was here….
I miss Captain kirk.
I hope that reporter from TSN990
The habs aren’t getting any calls, and the yotes are starting to play like they know it. Lots of interference going on.
Geoff Molson has crappy beer, a crappy GM & crappy Coach how he succeeds in business is beyond me!
The only way Diaz gets his ass nailed to teh bench is the day his name becomes Diazikski.
WILL anyone get in fron of the net on those point shots. They are alway at the side!
Time for another firing ,lets hope its the coach this time.
It’s kinda like watching a one ton truck bumping a Honda Civic…the truck is fine and the Honda is toast! Let’s get more small Athletes and see what happens?
Why Eller was out there with Nokia is your guess as good as mine.
How much would a Hitman cost?
Get that piece of crap Diaz off the ice. He cost us 2 goals the last 2 games.
Damn you Martin.
“Hate Bruins like a sickness”
3P 12:00 Danger every time Diaz is out there
BOONE FINALLY CALLED OUT DIAZ YAY!!!
Diaz is too soft….
_______ is too soft…
Fill in the blank with about 90% of this team sadly.
JM’s kind of player!
get. rid. of. diaz.
No wait, I take that back.
Get. Rid. of. Martin. ASAP LIKE RIGHT NOW.
Diaz should be in Hamilton, Emelin should be playing.
zebraas are not making any calls for the habs
Another trip goes undetected!
Number 25 in 2012!
no call on the blatant hit from behind?
Diaz is sooo amazing, But JM thinks Emelin Sucks, and look Diaz gets another free pass.
Wow, JM needs to go
Boone “Gionta is playing like his hair is on fire”. Maybe his hair can make contact with JM’s notebook.
The famous lead-protection again.
Diaz couldn’t handle Yandle there … Emelin still on the bench?
That RDS guy puts me to sleep. Its too bad TSN990 radio is two seconds behind, as I would much rather listen to their broadcast of the game !
good to see gorges score!
thats one way to get back at coyotes for that heavy body on him!
serious notes.. our D’s and small F’s cant handle those types of hits for 82 games and have no one stand up to these hits..
glad there isnt a game tomorrow.. cause the habs gonna feel it tomorrow..
I guess the one man forecheck ain’t working tonight. Better go with the 0-1-4, hang on for the tie.
Or the 0-0-5…
ohhh, far too conservative!
JM is getting ready to roll out the Six-Goalie System®
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
Stack ’em up like cord wood in front of the net!
Might work except….the Habs are too small.
It’s so crazy it might work.
We’d be guaranteed to win 82 loser points
Hope we don’t wake up one morning to learn Emelin has caught a flight home.
he’ll be traded bfore that happens, then we’ll get to watch him bloom with another team.
Not sure why we wasted what 7 years tryign to get this kid to come over, for this…
Diaz brings little to the table
Send Diaz down to the Dogs. He’s aweful!
This team’s defensive coverage is horrible.
The system is working as well as ever.
Bad play Max
There not playing 1-1-3, there playing 1-2-2.
Not much different.
Number 25 in 2012!
I hope he wins coach of the year, so we get somes wins.
Whats so sad is if they win tonight it buys JM more time,
I want them to lose just cause i think this team would be so much more better off without JM.
Problem with that is JM and PG are friends, PG firing JM is admitting to a mistake so he won’t do it. It’s the same thing with Gomez, they won’t do anything with him because it is admission of fault.
Georges Laraque interviewed in Edmonton this week
Asked about not playing very much for head coach Jacques Martin in Montreal:
“He doesn’t like toughness. Guys would get beat up and he’d have his hands in his pockets, showing no emotion to the other coach. When a coach shows emotion behind the bench, guys love that. You want to play for him, win for him.”
If Georges had ever done anything at all about guys on his team getting beaten up, I’d have more respect for his opinion about JM’s response to it.
He didn’t police or enforce anything. Why play him? What was he expecting, power-play time?
And when Martin asked Laraque to go out & do something – I have to ask the other guy if he wants to fight first (BLG’s Code) Mr. Martin……..
Just let it be known that the Leafs are my second-least favourite team.
Time to implement Le System a la Martin…
Two forechecks off the draw, ahead of Guy the Great already.
