Liveblog: Playoff hopes flicker

Bourque

Carey Price’s teammates blocked more shots than he did.

And now the Canadiens play a back-to-back on the road.

The worst power-play in the league was putrid again.

But Rene Bourque won the retribution fight.

    Is it me, or it seems like price is really weak to the blocker side, and then he always drops to his knees which hurts his play. Now he is not responsible to score so the Habs would have lost this anyway cause they don’t score much.

  2. cashbagg says:

    Luckily we signed Kaberle…otherwise we may have been in 13th place…wait a sec…

    fail.

    Price lovers don’t see le prix we pay on too many nights. It’s OK for a goalie to have a bad game every once in awhile. The most you lose is 2 points every once in awhile.

    Price’s problem is that on many, many, too many nights he lets some absolutely softies in. Ever play in front of a guy who does that? It’s very demoralizing to say the least and it makes winning, with our lack of real shooters, almost impossible when it happens early and more than once.

    Shouda played the Budda. He earned the start.

    Give Price a long term BIG money contract? J’espere que non but that’s what he’ll be looking for. Let him find it elsewhere and let the Habs reap some real talent in return.

    My guess is however that the word is already out there and the word is inconsistent.

    I actually think they didn’t play that badly. The PP was pathetic and CP got out goaltended, but assize from that Gomez is finally starting to look good (wtf?) and the team played tough… we actually won a fight.

  5. 100HABS says:

    People talking about house-cleaning and blowing this team up. That’s not what’s needed. You look at the teams of old that succeeded, the players played together for years and got a sense of loyalty and feeling at home (un sentiment d’appartenance).

    What’s needed is patience. And a healthy Markov!

    We also have some good prospects coming up – 6 in the world juniors.

    • EastCoastHab says:

      I agree with most of what you say but this year? Patience was 15 games ago. They don’t have the quality to compete this year, it’s the painful reality

    • EastCoastHab says:

      First time I laughed all night!
      Don’t hold back tell us how you really feel!

      Thanks!

    • HardHabits says:

      5 players; Prybil, Gallagher, Tinordi, Bournival, Beaulieu.

      IMO a blow-up is not needed but the team needs to sell this deadline and forget about the play-offs this year, try their best to trade Kaberle, Gill, Moen, and/or Kostitsyn.

      Build with Plex, Cole, DD, Pacioretty, Subban, Gorges, Emelin, Diaz, Bourque, Eller.

      See what other players may garner picks. This is not a play-off team. They aren’t a very good regular season team. They haven’t been good since the pre-season. They have won consecutive games only 3 times this season if I am not mistaken.

      As an organization they have had only one top 10 finish since the last Cup.

      What’s it going to be then, eh!

    • ManApart says:

      Bro, I’ve been telling you for 3 years about what would happen. Are you still on the hope bandwagon? Face it, it’s over. You have to come to grips with reality for once in your life.

  6. 1973Habs says:

    Let’s not throw Price under a bus, folks. Without him, we might have only 20 points this year. It’s the rest of teh team that isn’t good enough to compete.
    That’s the GM’s business. Let’s make sure we get who we want to hire before we can Gauthier.

    FIRE GAUTHIER, FIRE GAUTHIER, FIRE GAUTHIER

    The architect of this debacle is still employed and he still has time to leave his paw marks ont eh Canadiens dim future. We will not make the playoffs, trade our players and get some young talent or draft picks. Cammy for Bourque, is not trading for the future. Kaberle at $5mm/year, OMG!

    Whatever he does, Carey Price is not worth $7MM for 7 years. He is good, but not that good. To lock up 7 years at Gomez like money is ridiculous. Who cares what the recent mistakes comps are (Rinne). Goalies are a 3-5 year max project. Win the Stanley Cup and then perhaps we can discuss a 6 year term.

    • Mattyleg says:

      What are the bad moves that Gauthier has done, according to you?
      What are the good ones?

      (btw, Cammy for Bourque is about getting rid of an underperforming bad seed for a big body that can mix things up in front of the net, not about the future. You don’t trade away a $6m player for ‘picks’)

      • habsfan0 says:

        Bad Move: Accepting employment from Club de Hockey Canadien.

        Good Move: About to come, when he’s shown the door.

      • HardHabits says:

        I like the Bourque trade. Dislike very much the Kaberle one.

        His summer make-over has been a disaster. He should stay his hand and start thinking seriously about the play-offs… for 2013.

      • alfieturcotte says:

        Have there actually been any good moves? Maybe Eller for Halak, but frankly, jury still out on that one.

        Markov, Kaberle, SK74, Moore, O’Byrne, Pouliot, and the list goes on……

      • bellcentre hotdog says:

        Signing Cole this summer has proven to be a good move. I like the Cammy trade … Also a good move in my opinion.

        But Gauthier has also made some terrible moves … His signing of Markov has to be one of the worst. 3 years at $5.75? C’mon man!

  10. Gumby1964 says:

    Maybe the players are intentionally tanking to get a good pick. Management can’t do anything about that. You can’t get rid of the whole team.

    Ken Dryden: “There are two types of forwards. Scorers and bangers. Scorers score and bangers bang.”

  11. Ferg says:

    With the exception of Cole, Bourque and Subban tonight, who came to play?

    Bourque stands up for himself, and by extension this organization in only his 2nd game, and this team supports him by shitting the bed again.

    Cole sacrifices his body on every shift for a scoring opportunity and guys like Kostitsyn and Plekanecs float around like the quitters they are.

    Subban drives me crazy but you can’t deny that he comes to play every night. And Kaberle, who was done in Toronto 5 years ago, gets 20+ minutes of icetime.

    Good for Gomez and Gorges too. They did what they could.

    You know, I think we all keep watching this team because we think they are an extension of the Montreal Canadiens teams we grew up with. We see Beliveau and Richard in the crowd and think we are watching Les Glorieux. But we’re kidding ourselves. These are not Montreal Canadiens. These are professional hockey players. And they don’t care who wins. All they care about is the paycheque and they know that win or lose, the money will still be there.

    Geoff Molson, blow this thing up and blow it up tonight.

  13. EastCoastHab says:

    So…where is my positivity??

    I have tried to keep the faith, not listen to the crap and hold on to the shred of playoff hopes. Right now I have formally thrown in the towel.
    Now I have to take my boy to Montreal (from Newfoundland) for his birthday later this month. I would cancel but he would lose his mind.
    I wonder how he will feel when he sees the game? It’s gonna cost me a ton of cash for hotdogs and other things to keep his mind off the game!

  14. HardHabits says:

    Any body up for a game of Line Combos™?

  15. thirdstone says:

    How are we complaining about Price? Are you people serious? We get shutout, we don’t score on any of those powerplays, and we are down on the goalie that is very understandably starting to have bad games past the halfway point in the season in which he’s been one of the only bright spots? Come on guys, the ONE thing the habs have is the stud goalie of the future, and you bitch about him in a game that his team wouldn’t have one if he posted a shutout. Pathetic.

    • HardHabits says:

      Tell us how you really feel.

    • Lizardking89 says:

      Pretty much this. This team has one bright spot and that’s Price after that pretty much anyone on this team is expendable. This team needs a massive house cleaning time to get some competent hockey people in the front office and rebuild the right way. Not some half-assed rebuild thru free agency. Gainey and Gaulthier got the team into this mess and they need to be removed from this team as soon as possible.

      • HardHabits says:

        Price is not the Franchise. The Habs should start drafting goalies. Everybody needs motivation in the form of a replacement. Anointing him will create complacency where it never existed before. It’s human nature.

        • Lizardking89 says:

          I agree but as of this moment he’s pretty much the only bright spot on this team right now. Seems like this organization purposely trades away any goalie that has any shot at making the show so that Price is the undeniable number 1. That thinking isn’t healthy. When Price had a bonafide competitor for his job he sulked and had a lousy season . When all his competition was gone he had one of the best seasons of his career.

      Its rather good that they should see it rather than using such kind, constructive crticism like “I think were losing games b/c we have a losing mentality.”

  17. 100HABS says:

    Got the chance (sic) to attend the game in a corporate box tonight. The highlight was when I saw Pierre Boivin and his wife (I assume) come out of the elevator. I was surprised to see him and said “M. Boivin! Vous êtes toujours impliqués?” They both chucked and he said “En tant que partisan”.

    I thought that was cool. Also, there was no other highlight to remember on this night…

    Habs powerplay is the same as their shootout shooters as they get shots and opps to score but have no finishing touch and is reflective in the league standings with so many losses etc……

  26. G-Man says:

    Alas, Don McLean

    A long, long time ago
    I can still remember how
    Those Habs used to make me smile
    And I knew if I had my chance
    That I could make these lyrics dance
    And then Hab fans would be happy for a while.
    But then a cold night in January
    The Caps were being sanguinary
    Bad news for coach Cunnyworth
    The Caps goalie was Neuvirth.
    I can’t remember if I cried
    When I read about his wounded pride
    But something touched me deep inside
    The day the hope for Stanley died

    So…

    [Chorus]
    Bye, bye to the Stanley Cup Drive
    Watched the Habs drive me crazy; I’d drink until dry
    Watching les boys score no goals after many tries
    Thinkin’ this’ll be the day that they score
    C’mon guys; one more.

  27. nickster13 says:

    I wouldnt blame the staff or owner or coach, this one is on the players. The players havent lived up to expectations and most are streaky one-dimensional players sadly. So expect changes to be made. I am not dissapointed really, as this is our reality that i have accepted, and we can come back stronger next year. Rebuild Sens style!

  28. PureGuava says:

    Price sucks.

  29. price365 says:

    3 goals on the first 10 shots – our Goaltending maybe not as good as we think – the “D” had to be good only allowed 16 shots – as far as goals washington only had 9 more goals than the habs coming in our goaltending is a question mark – we out shot them 31-16 couldn’t score their “D” was weak – they’re goaltending was the difference that’s why they got the 2-points.

  30. habsfan0 says:

    Is it my imagination, or did things start going south on this franchise just as soon as owner Geoff Molson(and his merry band of lawyers) demanded that the site name be changed from “habsinside/out” to “hockeyinside/out”?

    The hockey gods were NOT amused.

  31. RiverviewCanadien says:

    Yes he should have stopped the 2nd goal. But he should have been on the bench to start the game.

    Budaj played well enough vs the Rangers to draw the Capitals. That is on Cunneyworth. Not a knock on Price (I have to admit, I was madder than a mosquito in a mannequin factory after that 2nd one). He was not the only reason they lost.

    The team out front did not do enough. So in the end, everyone sucked (I never watched the 3rd, so maybe they poured it on – hahaha). Sure there were times where it seemed like they could get it done, instead, the Capitals backup goalie said “not tonight, none”.

    Frustration is setting in big time. Almost seems like the players are playing, like they could be the next to go. Not a good dressing room right now. I don’t think I need to be an insider to know that. It just can’t be fun right now.

    One thing that could change things around, is to name an “Interim Captain” (that is seeing Gionta is likely gone for the season). Sounds silly that it could make a difference. But I bet it can have an impact…ask Mike ;)

    Got to admit, Bourque plays a hard game, he respects the boys club rules of the game. Knew what he did was dirty, took ownership for his OWN mistakes and acted on it (hey Bert is still playing, and on the Red Wings, a very respected club). That is a character player. Someone the Habs need, plays with emotion. I don’t think they have enough of those guys.

    //end rant

    Ahhh the Kovalev days always brought playoffs…and a great PP.

    Can we call the KHL and borrow him for the rest of the season? (3,2,1…let the Kovy bashing begin)

  32. duffy says:

    I guess the reason there was no boo ing at the end of the game is because the place was empty.

  33. manu07 says:

    I thought price would have picked it up to prove he’s worth 7 mil a season. Guess not! But PG will lock him up tomorrow for that 7 mil for sure after this terrible performance. That seems to be the way he operates…backwards!

    Well the Habs made Neuvirth look good. Improve his GAA to 3.05 from 3.23 and SV% to .894 from .886

    Its time to switch to whiskey, we’ve been drinkin’ beer all night

  38. habsperspective says:

    Yep, firing Martin was surely the fix. Oh and trading Cammaleri mid game was also certainly necessary, and not a moment to soon.

    Glad most also assume locking up Carey for millions, and millions, and millions, and millions of dollars will also guarantee this continued success weve revelled in since the seventies.

    Let me know when the next round of inoculations occur, so I can get on that line of thinking.

    Its seems medicoracy is not only contagious. But acceptable. That is if even you consider this product mediocre. Or should I say bi-product.

    Genius, PG, pure genius.

    • Mattyleg says:

      I’m sure you realise that the reason they traded Cammy mid-game was because they wanted to let the Calgary game start so that it would count toward Bourque’s suspension.
      I’m sure you realize that and are just being flippant.

      I’m also sure you realize that most of the fans were calling for Martin’s head, thinking it was the right thing to do as well, claiming to be better GMs than PG. Which is what people are still doing now.

      I’m sure you realize all this.

          Cole (good)…Gorges(what was that?…first in the summer then later this winter)…Campoli huh, really???…that’s the point, he had ample time to make much better choices before the FA group was decimated (defence and 4th line) and didn’t…regardless, those rare good or fair to middling moves were not near enough to overcome the stupid ones/non moves (as evidenced by the quality of the current group). As mentioned above, look @ the team’s current position in the standings.

          (and I do like the acquisition of Bourque/shipping out of Cammy move)

    I just watched what I believed could have been the start of something good. NO. It was the beginning of the end. This is it. This is as good as it gets. The habs are sellers!

      Agreed time to sell at the trade deadline and rebuild the right way this time.

    • viper says:

      agree sly now we sell ..pg gets the axe at the end of the year .we get a top 5 pick and rebuild like we were suppose when gainey took over..but we can,t fire pg just yet because if someone new comes in now the habs might start winning and just miss the playoffs there for out of the top 5 in the draft..habsfanforever

      The thing is, with a rebuilding team, and that’s what the Canadiens have become, there will be many more nights like this one before the club finds its way, so if we fans find the Habs exhausting our patience now, imagine how enervated we’ll be after two, three years. Yoga might be the answer to help us get through more of the dark days that lie ahead. Yoga, and game night sedatives.

      • MasterHab says:

        But the Habs aren’t a rebuilding team. They should be, but they aren’t. What they are is simply a bad team that is going nowhere fast and that has absolutely no plan for getting better. I might have more patience if I believed for one second that the people in charge of running this franchise had the first clue about how to organize a proper rebuild. But as it is they’re still in denial about the need to rebuild in the first place!

    Why is Darche given ice time? Why did Cunneyworth break up the Eller, Kostitsyn, Moen line? Why does the pp try the same tricks over and over?
    Why, why,why???????!!!!!!!

    And now I’ll listen to these blow-hards on L’antichambre, why do I do this to myself?
