    I have a hunch that this one isn’t going to be over until something breaks. Then again maybe they’ll just all goof around and see if they can lose their way into the playoffs again.

  3. SeriousFan09 says:

    Legacy of the 2003 Entry Draft now stands at AHL pugilist they resacquired Jimmy Bonneau and Andrei Kostitsyn, while I hae to gripe about draft years usually, today this particularly stings.

    Drafting legacy from first half of the decade has the Habs where they are.

    He actually does everything that our team doesn’t want to do: pay the price.

     

    One can only dream.

  5. showey47 says:

    I was one of those guys who saw gorges as nothing more then a depth dman at best after that trade. Glad me proved me wrong.

  6. punkster says:

    Slump, losing streak, whatever. None of them are performing up to potential and the team concept just isn’t there right now. They have to work this out themselves.

    Wasn’t that Josephine’s last name before she married Napoleon?

  8. Gindan69 says:

    The ducks only dressed him for 1 game this season. Looks like an AHLer to me. Number 9 on the depth chart behind picard/webber. But with JM, who knows. He may love that he’s a stay at home D man and pull PK.

  9. Harani says:

    Renaud Lavoie (of RDS) saying that Lappy asked for a trade at the beginning of the week. I think it’s a good thing he did because Habs can move on, it’s not like he was a scoring machine, no pk time. JM was using Cammi to kill penalties.

    “It must be love!”

  10. Bill says:

    It must be Auld tonight. I assume Martin put him in the game last night to warm him up. Price on Sunday.

  11. obrien says:

    Laps and a first might yield Sbisa…

  12. JIMVINNY says:

    It only works out that way if the team offers the player a contract, and that player refuses.  If they never offer him a contract, and he doesn’t pan out, no pick is awarded.

  13. sidhu says:

    Can anyone explain to me the rationale for awarding teams a 2nd round pick if they do not sign a prior 1st round selection?

  14. kempie says:

    Koivu

    Somebody had to say it

  15. SeriousFan09 says:

    I’ll be honest, I feel hurt over the Lapierre situation.

    There wasn’t much to cheer for during a lot of 08-09, Lang going down with the achilles tendon injury I pretty much knew the season was gone but there was Lappy, hitting, scoring and making a nuisance of himself each game, throwing himself into it all. I thought the Habs had a real Francophone hero, not in scoring but just in heart and effort. Than he had that nagging ankle injury that hampered him for most of 09-10, he revived in the playoffs and did admirably, but now he’s spent the season tossing it all away again.

    Energy players must play with everything they have each night, Lapierre has not and he’s going. Sad, I thought he had potential to stick around as a fan favourite like Max Talbot in PIT.

  16. Klondike Habs Fan says:

    With all this negativity, talk of lack of leadership, and talk of poor coaching, how come Gionta never seems to get called to the blogosphere? He has been the most invisibly player during this road trip. No? It is times like these when the captain should be leading by example on the ice.

  17. obrien says:

    If there is anything coming our way, it’s Jason Blake or a late pick.  Please let it be a pick.

  18. Bill says:

    This is the other shoe dropping after Desharnais getting called up. The French media will lose their *$&! over Laps being traded, at least Desharnais replaces him as a Quebecer on the roster.

    Don’t get excited about a roster player maybe coming back: ask yourself whom you would trade to acquire Max. Unless they are salary dumping?

  19. Danno says:

    The gremlins are in the system again. Is anyone else having the page break up as they scroll up and down the page?

    How about a king-size box of frozen waffles? Oh wait. We already have that.

  22. twilighthours says:

    A dozen donuts would be a pretty good return. Man i could go for a donut

  23. thorandresson says:

    Another D?  Does this mean the Gorges is injury is worse than thought?  Does it mean someone else on D will be traded (Spacek I hope).

     

    By the way, we all thought Gorges was a bag of pucks when we first got him so the jury is still out on Festerling

  24. Harani says:

    RDS is saying it too. Hopefully it’s for something good coming back.

    “It must be love!”

  25. sidhu says:

    Looking at the Ducks’ roster, I’m hoping Sbisa comes back.  Bobkov has looked okay in the WJC.

  26. SeriousFan09 says:

    Gagnon seems pretty solid, I think he had the Gionta as captain story before the team announced it.

     

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  27. Harani says:

    Actually, when the Habs traded Craig Rivet for Josh Gorges (who was also an undrafted defenseman), we didn’t think much of it. Now, Gorges has become a huge part of our team. Similarly, who’s to say that doesn’t happen with Festerling.

    Am I being overly optimsitic? Then again, it’s New Year’s Eve.

    Is he reputable? Because this would make my day. And it’s been a bad {%#^}* day.

  29. twilighthours says:

    Weird double-post

  30. Aerobiz says:

    What the Hell?!?!?

    I was never a fan of Lappy. I’m a sportsmanship guy and I don’t like his game, but surely we could’ve gotten more than that? A roster player at least.

  31. Harani says:

    Francois Gagnon tweets that Lapierre may have been traded by the Habs. He stayed back at the hotel when the team made its way over to the rink in Florida. I’m kinda happy that PG is moving and not sitting on his derriere. But we still have to see what’s coming back. And hopefully, it’s with a team in the West for a roster player. New Year’s present?

    Update: Brian Wilde (@BrianWilde) tweets that RDS and Gagnon saying it’s possibly to Anaheim, nothing confirmed. It’s up on rds.ca now. 

  32. SeriousFan09 says:

    Brad Festerling and a 5th rounder in 2012, can you say “Bag of Pucks”?

     

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  33. SeriousFan09 says:

    Maxim Lapierre being traded according to Francois Gagnon.

     

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  34. Harani says:

    Pierre LeBrun confirms that it’s Lapierre for Brett Festerling (Cool name or what?) and a 5th round pick.

  36. Les-Habitants says:

    Trading Lapierre is a mistake!!  He provides a key ingredient to this team, and we are going to be a worse team without him

  37. twilighthours says:

    I was at last nights debacle and I wrote a huge rant only to have my phone die before I could post.

    Don’t have the energy to rewrite it, but let me just say this: I never would have thought it possible, but spacek sucks worse in person than he does on tv

  38. bwoar says:

    I already asked, but figured I’d asked again: will the half-track be coming out soon HH?  Maybe turn the key and start warming it up, we may need it in a month.

    Personally I’m pretty ready to throw the “captain” under a bus.  Haven’t heard a peep from him and the silence is deafening.

  39. HardHabits says:

    Auld should have played more games. He’s played 3 so far. That’s minimum 7 too few in my opinion. Now the team has to play him more and if they start winning with him what does that do for Price’s development?

    It’s obvious that Price played great for a stretch but he has been less sharp and less lucky as of late, and yes it’s less his fault as the team is unable to score. They can’t win when coming from behind and now can’t win when they pop the 1st goal. And those goals are turning out to be garbage goals at that.

    Something is wrong with the team’s psyche. Sadly I think PK has disrupted it. Not intentionally. Just his beaming enthusiasm has rustled feathers. Feathers in my opinion that need some shaking up. Nevertheless, the old boys club will lay down the rules, because it’s better to lose and preserve order than win and let enthusiasm, creativity and all those things that march to the beat of their own drummer win or shine. Can’t have that. Must defer.

    Last night was a schooling. The new school trounced the old school. Habs coaching prospect brings our ex-AHL goalie for 1st NHL game and kicks ass.

    And the Habs will never draft in the lottery so expect more of the same. Every shackle and chain available is hindering this club.

     

  40. Fargo Habs Fan says:

    Couldn’t catch last night’s game, as I lost power due to a blizzard (mercifully by the look of it).  I will likely lose power again tonight from a 2nd blizzard.  Mine and my wife’s phones are fully charged to read the blog tonight Boone.  We are counting on you.  :)

    • DE-SHARNAY?

    Rumours on twitter that it’s Lapierre for Nicolas Deschamps (Moncton Wildcard, 35th overall pick by the Ducks in 2008, Left Wing, 6’2, 186lbs) Once again, it’s a rumour.

    Or it could be Jason Blake… another smurf:( 

    “It must be love!”

  46. yathehabsrule says:

    If it makes you feel better the Blackhawks lost 8 or 9 straight last season, and look how that turned out.

    The Caps had a similar slump last season, and still finished first. But we all know how their season ended.

    Hey guys haven’t posted here in a bit. Relocation/new job and holidays have kept me busy.

    Curious to know if anyone has matched the Habs record to HIO’s server crashes. Also, is there a pool on what time the server crashes tonight, if so put me down for a loonie around the same time the first “pussy-ass” penalty is called.

    Who gets fired first, Martin or HIO’s tech wizards?

  48. 24 Cups says:

    It’s official, in one of the richest drafts in history all that the Habs have left is Halak’s replacement, Lars Eller.

    It will be interesting to see what AK46 can bring in the way of a return.

  49. Trenton_Romulox says:

    I’m not sure how much more of this losing I can take. On the bright side, at least there’s a new year about to start and it’s a chance for me to stop being an idiot and make some solid life choices. Of course, my New Year’s resolutions will last all of one day, maybe two if I feel really dedicated. But hey, there’s always 2012…

    Big day for The Wiz.  2 goals, 1 assist.

  56. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    I am fed up with AK46.

    Once used to be my favourite player. But his lack of involvement has really hurt his career. Let’s say the Cammalleri-Plex line had someone else, not even a star player, maybe someone like Backes, that line would be all of a sudden, a lot more effective than the current one. 

  57. HabFanSince72 says:

    We outshot them 2-1.

    Never saw a second of the OT – RDS cut out.

  64. rocketsglare says:

    That is sound, fundamental hockey. Props to Cammalleri for going to the net and for Wisniewski to follow up

    with the rebound and score the game winning goal in OT. Just how you should attack the net.

    Shots have 45-22 in favour of the Habs – holy cow.

  67. Shiloh says:

    I still think the New Year’s Eve game in 1976 was the best I’ve ever seen. If Dryden and Tretiak play normal, the Habs would have won 8-1.

  68. JIMVINNY says:

    and RDS sucks even more.  Did they forget about OT?

  69. HabFanSince72 says:

    Great effort from the 2nd game in less than 24 hours against a rested opponent.

    Martin benched AK46 for Pyatt at the end. I didn’t think AK’s penalty was his fault. He was battling for the puck but got a bit unlucky that he broke the other guy’s stick. Pyatt is trying hard.

  70. Mr.Hazard says:

    Is anyone else thinking the same thing as me? That these teams are evenly matched? ie. we’re no better than the Panthers?

  71. The Teacher says:

    Great way to end off the 2010 year HIO and RDS LMAO!

    What the F is going on? H I/O servers not serving. Now no feed for the O/T. Has the world gone completely MAB?

    Not trying to make excuses, but we’re playing 5 games in less than seven days.

    Panthers have not played since the 27th.

     

  89. JasonM says:

    I’d pay good money not to see Darche on the 1st line PP.

  90. HabFanSince72 says:

    I see Pyatt has taken Lappy’s place.

    Does anyone in their right mind think that is not a downgrade?

    Ah what am I saying. Lappy sucked.

     

  91. JIMVINNY says:

    Darche on the PP really bugs me.  Yeah, he puts himself in front, but he does nothing when he’s there.

  92. HabFanSince72 says:

    Yup.

    Then again he’s the only one who goes to the net.

    For those of you watching the World Juniors, is it me and my bias towards the Habs or is Leblanc’s line the best team Canada has, they’re doing some great forechecking, and I find Leblanc’s positioning has been great.

  97. Sheldon says:

    Watching the WJC. Any too-many-players (not men) penalties yet?

  98. habsfan0 says:

    When was the last time the Habs traded away a francophone player in return for a non-francophone one in a 1 on 1 deal?

  100. JasonM says:

    This lack of discipline across the board on this team is starting to piss me off.

  101. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    It continues to amaze me that this team takes so many penalties when they’re not even physical. 

  102. Max_a_million says:

    Other than perhaps helping the cap, the silver lining might come with less needless penalties.

    Still like Lapierre though.

  103. Bill says:

    Ribeiro for Niinimaa?

  104. JIMVINNY says:

    Did Auld just take a penalty?

  105. Max_a_million says:

    Desharnais is waiting in Montreal.  There is the upgrade. 

  106. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    ANOTHER PENALTY…

  107. habsfaninboston says:

    These penalties are ridiculous.

  108. JIMVINNY says:

    That can’t even be blamed on a lack of discipline.  That’s just a terrible, terrible call.

    Playing FLA to a scoreless tie = JM’s wet dream.

  114. JasonM says:

    Boone, I read Souless after one

  115. JIMVINNY says:

    oh good heavens.  Now RDS thinks that desharnais will take Gomez’ spot, and gomez will drop down.  Really?

  116. Max_a_million says:

    One can only hope the player who makes those around him score, replaces the one who sucks the scoring out of his linemates on a scoring line.

    The only thing the Canadiens need at this point is a few goals each night.

  117. Sheldon says:

    Gomez should be sent to the “E” he sucks so bad!

    RDS is going too far with these Lapierre highlights lol

  119. Matt_in_TO says:

    Just got in and read the good news!!!  I’m shocked we got that much for Yapierre.  Problem now is when the Ducks come to Montreal, who’s going to get more attention, Saku or Yaps?  I know who RDS will be focusing on…

  124. avatar_58 says:

    Hilariously the two goalies they didn’t rush – Halak and Desjardins – they threw away for nothing. I love Price and he’s our future, but good lord. I’m tired of seeing other teams and hearing “ex-hab goalie stones the montreal canadiens”. Enough already.

    Forgive me but even with his massive rebound issues Desjardins is faster and more agile than Auld. He would have taken the backup role, as that’s what he is in Tampa anyway.

  125. Sheldon says:

    It’s time for this team to go “Full Whizzer!!!”

  126. HardHabits says:

    He’s a defensively responsible MAB with an edge.

  127. JD_ says:

    Well the road trip from hell ends on a good note. The Wiz acquisition looks great. The team comes back from behind and wins for probably the 1st time this season. Turning point time for the Habs. Hopefully all it was a slump. Looking forward to what the new year brings.

  134. sidhu says:

    This team can’t get home fast enough — they look tired and disinterested.

    I am hoping DD gets a chance to show what he can do.

    I am also hoping that PG continues to purge the team of ineffectual players, like Benny.

  135. 24 Cups says:

    Purge the team?  PG is the guy who traded for Benny last year!

    Three days off early next week.

     

    Time to start over.

     

  137. Ian Cobb says:

    Gauthier not done yet.!

    Last nights loss was the
    one that broke the camels back. Hang onto your hats, it is going to get
    real breezy around the Bell Center now.

    The wheels are turning
    big time at the management level, even though they are not turning very
    well on the ice. Big moves are coming!

    You
    can be sure, that the phone lines between our club and others are
    humming hot and heavy now. Even though it takes a little longer these days for the
    Bell Center to connect, having to go through India and all.!!

    Rest
    assured that the right connection and deal is in the works, and will
    take place, within a short time. Call ups and sit downs and trades are
    the near future of this franchise, maybe today.!

    I am sure things will be addressed very quickly once the boys get home and find
    out who will be receiving their pink slips in a week or so. A blockbuster deal is just around the corner boys and girls.

    To all of my HIO friends, I wish you the very best and happier viewing in the New Year!!

    Drive Carefully.!! Especially going by the Bell Center, there are people walking in a fog.!!

  138. Sheldon says:

    Those big moves you are feeling are most likely a fart!

  139. avatar_58 says:

    Hmm? I believe it was Sanford who cost the bulldogs their shot. Twice.

  140. SeriousFan09 says:

    Desjardins was yanked in the 2nd round of the series when they were tied 2-2 and Sanford recorded consecutive wins to get HAM to the 3rd Round and at no point did Boucher go back to Desjardins even after Sanford lost 3 out of 4 starts against Texas.

    I didn’t really see round 2 but Desjardins inability to hold his job in the AHL playoffs says something.

    I loved him in the playoffs last year. Sadly his time here has come to a close, a solid depth player with a scoring touch despite a lack of discipline. I wonder who’ll take up his spots and actually provide us with some hits?

     

  143. Dunboyne Mike says:

    Here in Ireland watching the local feed from Florida. Commercial: tickets for Panthers games in January are $9, including parking, and your money back “if you don’t have a good time”.

     

  144. 24 Cups says:
    “Who is Brett Festerling?:

    François Gagnon, for one, has no idea.”

    You got that straight.  This trade is a joke.

  145. HabFanSince72 says:

    Most pointless franchise in hockey.

    They only exist for vacationing Canadian hockey fans.

  146. Jordio-oh says:

    Is Grabovski the best 5th round pick we’ve ever chosen? Here are his competitora:

    Peter Popvic

    Paul Dipietro

    Rick Wilson

    Bill Nyrop

     

     

  147. Ian Cobb says:

    Molson boys won’t put up with this type of performance.!!!

  148. RGM says:

    They’re probably asking the question in Anaheim: “Who is Maxim Lapierre?” Let’s not pretend that we just traded away Gretzky for Patrice Tardif, Roman Vopat, Craig Johnson, and two draft picks.

    Go Habs Go!

  149. novahab says:

    Here we go again 3 pp for the cats and one for us. JM just stands there like a idoit and why should the players care ,ownership doesn’t and the coach and GM dosn’t. I guess so long as the good folks in Montreal keeps paying those ticket prices who care if this team loses . Well can all be proud of the classiest team in the league that never complains when the refs screws them over game after game. Hey management take a look at the Team Canadian Junior coach when the ref came over to warn him about rough play. He looked him right in the eyes and told that ref don’t going screwing us and stood his ground. The refs in this league has no respect for the Habs or the coach and especial management they treat this team as joke.

  150. Sheldon says:

    This team is no better than a traveling burlesque troop.

  151. Exit716 says:

    They were brought into the league by Bruce McNall and Bettman because at the time Wayne Heizinga (spelling) owned Blockbuster video plus the Marlins and the Dolphins. The league thought they would take advantage of marketing opportunities etc. We all know what happened though. McNall went to prison.

     

  152. Max_a_million says:

    Hey!

    Us American hockey fans vacation there as well!

  153. Exit716 says:

    Time to walk the dogs.

     

  154. thorandresson says:

    Game over?

  155. sidhu says:

    The Wiz gets beaten

  156. Habnofear says:

    Here we go again………………..

  157. thorandresson says:

    at this rate, maybe we can land Sean Couturier at the draft?

  158. JasonM says:

    Clutch goal for Canada.

  159. 24 Cups says:

    The Wiz just shit the bed in only his 2nd game. 

  160. Danno says:

    Count Chocula is having a nervous breakdown

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  161. Exit716 says:

    Pleks gets slashed on the shot and Leggo can’t call a penalty. What a joke. Why does Montreal continually get the same officials two games in a row? Shoot the puck at his god damned head.

  162. HabFanSince72 says:

    < H I/O mode on>

    JM would only ruin him.

    <H I/O mode off>

     

  163. Sheldon says:

    Wiz, shit? Is this what the most storied team in hockey history has been reduced to?

  164. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    How bad is this team? This is clearly not just Price slumping for all the trolls out here

  165. habsfaninboston says:

    It’s contagious.

  166. OneTimer says:

    what’s going on here

  167. OneTimer says:

    buddy, there’s all kinds of trolls out here…we have’em all!

  168. JIMVINNY says:

    Game. 

     

    Sad that we can already say that, but it’s true.

  169. Exit716 says:

    Gionta and Gomez can just stay in the US for all I care.

     

  170. MathMan says:

    These days it feels like it’s game at 1-0, or heck, at puck drop.

    This slump is annoying, time for it to end. They’re not playing nearly as badly as they’d need to to get the results they’re getting.

  171. Exit716 says:

    Both goals came as a result of partially blocked shots by the defense.

     

  172. Sheldon says:

    The Habs couldn’t get lucky in the old Times Square with their pants at their ankles and a roll of C notes!

  173. Exit716 says:

    Both goals came as a result of partially blocked shots by the defense.

     

  174. duffy says:

    Will someone please show these clowns how to put a puck in the net.

  175. PeterD says:

    Where do we find a coach???

    Haven’t heard any names as candidates to take JM’s place.

  176. Sheldon says:

    Has Chris Higgins scored yet?

  177. thorandresson says:

    I was saying that at 1-0, hoping that somehow they would turn it around.  But at 2-0 it really is, I’m just gonna focus on team Canada now.

     

    Look on the bright side, LeBlanc looks great.

  178. RGM says:

    Got too excited watching Team Canada take the lead – forgot 2nd period had started. Turned on with 17:00 on the clock and a 2-0 deficit. Aye-iy-aye!!!

    Go Habs Go!

  179. sidhu says:

    Not to worry, Pyatt is well-rested, he will have a fight and three goals

  180. RGM says:

    Carbo’s still under contract.

    Go Habs Go!

  181. Shiloh says:

    Gomer – is it possible to complete one pass?

  182. PeterD says:

    I just through up in my mouth a little bit!

  183. billylove says:

    Perhaps the most noteworthy post of the day!!!!!!

  184. RGM says:

    That is the organizational dilemma the Habs face right now. Let’s assume the worst and say that Martin has totally lost the room. We know that the Molsons are not exactly hurting for dollars, but I doubt that they’ll be too keen on paying two people millions of dollars to not be NHL head coaches.

    Go Habs Go!

  185. SeriousFan09 says:

    Habs needed that, completely outshooting the opponent and getting the W. They’ve had way too many brain cramps around open nets and rebounds. Could be the start of something.

     

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  186. J.J. of Turku says:

    How are things going in the good old 2010? It’s been 2011 for a three hours already here in arctic scandinavia. Let’s hope we’ll win all the the rest of the games!!!

    Geez, am I drunk or what?

  187. Sheldon says:

    If we ever vote for the best picture on HIO, you have my vote. Happy New Year!!!

  188. Sheldon says:

    Only on the Montreal Canadiens would the “Urologist” be replaced by the “Wizzer!”

  189. king ddd says:

    wizz>>>> mab on defense heck if you ask me me MAB cost the oilers the stanleycup

  190. JasonM says:

    A goalie’s job is to stop the puck, which he didn’t. He cheated and gave a nice opening to St-Louis who cashed it to the bank. There was no pass, thus the goalie lack of confidence to his d-men gave the sniper a nice easy goal. The pass would have to beat 3 players, instead an outside shot found the net. Remember it was a 3 on 5 with lots of ice to cover. I find your reasoning poor and refused it categorically. And it had nothing to do with Subban, it could be Webber for all I care. You don’t cheat and leave 1/3 of the top of your net open when down 2 men. You need to be forced to give those openings with a lot of puck movement.

    Wrong again on line changes. And frankly, I don’t care what Brunet nor Boone would have to say about that. If the forward would have dumped the puck down the ice there were no problems. That didn’t happen. One defenceman is far closer to the bench than the other one depending on their position and they need a few seconds to skate there. The dman did his job and covered the chance of a long pass that would have possibly led to a breakaway. It’s completely the person who got OFF the bench who is in fault here. You’re reaching and you know it and you cannot blame a player for doing his JOB after yet another lazy play from the Habs offense.

    It would have been a lose/lose situation for any defenceman under that circumstance.

  191. avatar_58 says:

    Huh? He was on the opposite side of St-Louis. It was Gill who didn’t take him, not PK. Two many men had little to do with him either, otherwise he’d be in the box wouldn’t he?

  192. Chuck says:

    He got caught out of position in defending Ryan Malone, forcing Price to cheat to his right to cover a possible pass, thus giving St. Louis a gap inside of the post at which to shoot.

    The team can choose any player that was on the ice at the time of the too many men call to serve the penalty. Because PK didn’t serve the penalty doesn’t mean that he wasn’t at fault.

    Centre Hice: yeah, but was it legal?

  193. JasonM says:

    Yes it was Subban’s fault that Price went down early and left the top corner wide open for a sniper like St-Louis. Comon. I’m not going to get on Price’s case today but seriously, that comment is ignorant to say the least.

    And every coach will tell you that the person who got ON THE ICE is the principle cause of the penalty, the guy on the ice was doing his job. Heck, the player was NO WHERE near the bench. Twice, 2 players jumped on the ice when one player came out. That’s a classic case of not paying attention to who is your man on the ice.

    If the Hab forwards actually you know, dumped the puck in with assertion and cause a turnover like that old players with slow reflex skills wouldn’t have jumped on the ice even when their player was skating back 30 feet away from them.

  194. Mr. Biter says:

    Wasn’t over the shoulder but between the post and shoulder (bad positioning by Price who as well as everyone in the building was expecting a pass) but as bad as PK played (he was the player for the 2 many men penalties) the Habs sucked the last 2 periods. If Wez. scores instead of hitting the post different game, however last night so many Habs played so bad Webber, Cammy, Pouliet (espically bad), Laps (only player in the NHL who can lose the puck and fall down at the same time with no Tampa player within 15 feet of him) Darche, Halpren etc. Habs built up their shot totals after Tampa had a 4-1 lead and after the 1st period the shots they got lots were from long range (and seemed to fool CD but he did save them). Just a really bad game, however I usually leave the coaching to JM giving the players a day off after the Caps loss dumbfounded me. A good hour long practise no sticks just skating to remind them their hockey players. Almost as bad as Mario’s soccer pratice after a string of losses a few years ago.

  195. Chuck says:

    If Subban had done his job, Price wouldn’t have had to cheat on the play. Of course he still could have hugged the post, but then a cross-crease pass for an easy tip-in becomes a real possibility.

    On line changes, it’s the responsibility of both the players coming on and going off to execute it smoothly. That means not jumping on early, AND hustling your ass off to so as to let the linseman know that you’re out of the play. Pk was guilty on that second count, something that the RDS guys and Boone picked up on last night.

    Don’t get me wrong; Subban was FAR from the only player that needed his head screwed on straight, but my criticism of him stemmed from the comment at the top of this thread that said that PK didn’t make any large errors last night.

    Centre Hice: yeah, but was it legal?

  196. The Teacher says:

    The goalie\s job is to stop the shot. The defenceman’s job is to stop the pass. It doesn’t matter where Subban is. THe shot MUST be stopped from that angle. If St. Louis passed and they scored, fine, but this is not on Subban, just a careless play by Price.

  197. Larry says:

    They were rewarded for their effort today. A big win, Thank God, hate being grouchy on New Years’ Eve. Hopefully the last while was just a bad dream and we can get back on track now that this longest of road trips is over.

  198. yukonhab says:

    That suckS! Missed the Wiz goal in OT!

    RDS Happy New Year!

  199. Danno says:

    Uncle Fester (JM) will be proud. As will Cousin Itt (PG). So will Lurch (Hal Gill) And the Wiz (JW). Along with all the Munchkins in Munchkinland (Gio, Wee Dee Dee etc…)

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  200. Gindan69 says:

    Yay. They win. Upside, 2 pts. Downside, resets the fire JM clock back to zero.

  201. SensFanSpezza says:

    He’s a Wiz alright.  Rocket power!

  202. Sheldon says:

    Now all we need is some vinegar!

  203. Ron says:

    A lot of posters as well as myself were thinking there was a lockerroom problem. Is it possible there was…Max got the boot..Habs get 48 shots yes count them 48 shots on goal as well many blocked. Looked happy with the win and high 5′s all around. Maybe Max was being more of a dick than it looked. Anyway thank you Wiz, just fantastic playing as well as most others with lots of effort. Maybe having the poster boy booted shows that PG is willing to go the extra mile and not worry about the media in Montreal. Hats off to PG for that move.

  204. doug19 says:

    Happy New Year all. Exciting finish to year. Good luck Laps on finding your game again. Laps was brilliant once in a while and not so more.

  205. TripleX says:

    LOL. Good one. How long before Geoff Molson realizes it is not the players that need to be purged. Two purgings in three years is a bit much.

  206. EricInStL says:

    Last year, I mentionned that Desjardins would have been a good bet to replace either Price or Halak once management decided which one they would keep.

    We used to be the envy of sports teams. Now they only envy the every game sell outs.

    It’s easy when you’re on Mount Pious.

  207. avatar_58 says:

    By the way is anyone else glad we lost that Desjardins so we could sign Auld?

  208. SeriousFan09 says:

    G Mike Brodeur shut us out last year against OTT, it’s funny, I don’t see him starting in nets for OTT on a regular basis these days. The way the Habs were playing, Toskala could have been on the other end and pitched a win.

    Boo freakin’ hoo, 26 year old goalie who flopped in the AHL Playoffs, we didn’t give away Hasek.

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  209. Habnofear says:

    That move payed off last night,eh….Desjardins is goinna be a bonafied no:1 tender,we developed him well,lol

  210. Trenton_Romulox says:

    So horrid. But, I mean, at this point, whatever. They’ve lost so many games of late I just don’t even care and I’m not sure the players care much either. And there’s nothing any coach or pundit can say. The players are eventually gonna have to say, “Nope, that’s it,” and start actually putting their heart and soul into every shift. At the end of the day, it all comes down to them. And they just don’t have it right now. But, I’m pretty sure they’ll get it back before too many more losses pile up. 

  211. avatar_58 says:

    Wait wtf is this noise? a 5pm start after a back to back? Versus a well rested team? Desharnais wasn’t on a plane last night and won’t play till Sat?

     

    F this noise, I don’t even want to watch :( Going to be horrid

  212. Et Le Buttttt says:

    If Desjardins let in 4 goals and the Habs would have one know one would be talking about how we should have kept him. This is stupid the habs are playing so bad right now every goaltender looks like a bonafide number 1 against us.

  213. GrimJim says:

    Yeah, put the puns behind you…

  214. Danno says:

    Weren’t you referring to a genetic experiment where scientists attempt to cross a cat and a mule?

    Such experiments are illegal and thus the penalty.

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  215. twilighthours says:

    I can totally believe you wrote that. It’s an accurate description of this team. They are a bunch of pussys who play like ass. Political correctness be damned.

  216. TommyB says:

    LOL, you better stop right there.

  217. avatar_58 says:

    So hey is Subban playing or is he benched despite not having a single large error last night? Weber benched? Picard benched?

  218. Chuck says:

    Unless you don’t call getting off the ice in time to avoid TWO too many men penalties, or being out of position on the St. Louis goal a single large error, then yeah, he had a decent night.

    Centre Hice: yeah, but was it legal?

  219. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    9 goals in last 19 periods….cmon Habs…you can do way better than that.

  220. JasonM says:

    Did we score a goal yet?

  221. Brown_Hab_Fan says:

    I try not to be negative but this team is really looking below than average…I’m going to guess it’s because there’s a lot of internal injuries that players are playing through….but I will also take it maybe one more step forward in assuming that JM our coach has lost his team…We really need a new coach somebody to rejuvinate and inspire the players to be proud to wear the HABS JERSEY

  222. MathMan says:

    Over the last three games plus 25 minutes of this one, the Habs have scored 2 goals out of 117 shots, for an opposing goaltending total of .983.

    This represents a pace of over 34 shots a game, which is plenty, so quantity is not the issue.

    Can anyone tell me with a straight face that this is reflective in any way of the number or quality of chances the Habs have had, or the true quality of opposing goaltending?

    It’s a fluke run slump. It’s lasted way too long and needs to stop soonish or the Habs will fluke their way out of the playoffs, but it’s still a fluke run.

  223. longtimehabsfan says:

    Hamrlik was really weak on that first goal.  No fight for the puck.  Earlier in the season he would have gotten there first and cleared it.  This effort is pathetic.

  224. Bugs says:

    Didn’t we use to have goal-scorers? I’m pretty sure we use to have goal-scorers.

    What happened to our goal-scorers?

  225. Sheldon says:

    They got Systematized!

  226. MathMan says:

    Bad puck luck.

  227. RGM says:

    Well, Lafleur retired in 1983, came back but with the Nordiques and Rangers; Richer was traded to New Jersey; Cournoyer retired; Beliveau hung them up after his last Cup win; Henri decided that 11 Cups was enough; and Shutt got tired of being those most under-appreciated 60-goal man in Habs history and decided to pack it in. Oh, and The Rocket also took the skates off after winning 5 Cups in a row.

    Go Habs Go!

  228. The Teacher says:

    Pouliot never panned out, among others?

  229. habs001 says:

    when you were a bunny

  230. novahab says:

    Well clearly trading away Laps have made this team so much better. JM and PG you two have to be the smartest men in the room. Thats a room full of rocks.

  231. 134 says:

    wow… just got back from the break and it’s all of a sudden 2-0. Game over. Happy New Year Panthers!

  232. Ian Cobb says:

    I can smell ya from here Sheldon.!

  233. Sheldon says:

    And, the Habs from Florida!

  234. JIMVINNY says:

    Hey, look.  The captain does have some emotion.  hip hip hooray, the team’s not entirely dead. And sweden ties it up.

  235. habs001 says:

    the goalie roy has looked nervous in all games played…

  236. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    I’ve never seen the Habs this frustrated. They’re just putting more pressure onto themselves.

    Not sure what the future holds :(

  237. PeterD says:

    THis sucks..and to think, I’m missing Oprah for this????

  238. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    God, why do you have to be so cruel…another penalty Jeez

  239. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    OH WHAT – WE HAVE A PP?? LOL

  240. JasonM says:

    Leblanc looked FANTASTIC on that play.

  241. punkster says:

    Pierre likes him. I’m worried.

    ***Subbang!!!***

  242. thorandresson says:

    Leblanc’s line draws another penalty, that’s 3 in a row.

  243. thorandresson says:

    Leblanc’s line draws another penalty, that’s 3 in a row.

  244. Keith says:

    Well, at least Louis Leblanc is having a good game for Team Canada.

  245. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    WISNIEWSKI!!

  246. Sheldon says:

    JM will destroy him anyway!

  247. Habs Fan in Oil Country says:

    THE WIZ!!!!

  248. JIMVINNY says:

    woohoo!!!  a great first wave, and the second wave converts with under 15 seconds left when they gain the zone.

  249. PeterD says:

    THE WIZ of AHH’s

  250. habsfaninboston says:

    Gio?

  251. RGM says:

    Finally a goal!

    Go Habs Go!

  252. JasonM says:

    Can’t wait until he’s called up and put on the 4th line with 6 minutes of gametime then get the life sucked out of his by the Count.

  253. OneTimer says:

    Attaboy Wiz! The first of many?

  254. CHsam says:

    Thats our goal for today folks.

  255. light_n_tasty says:

    What are the chances that Markov will be feeding Wisniewski on the PP next year?

  256. thorandresson says:

    guys don’t get too excited, it’s just a tease, they’ll give up one soon enough

  257. Danno says:

    Nobody beats the Wiz! NOOOOOOOOOBODY!!!!!!!!!!

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  258. Habs Fan in Oil Country says:

    That was the best 2 minutes of hockey the boys have played for the last few weeks, let’s hope they keep it up!!

  259. JIMVINNY says:

    take advantage, and the momentum will be ours.

  260. Mr.Hazard says:

    FLA commentators: “The Montreal, Quebec people”

    Um, how about “Montrealers”, or “Quebecers”?

  261. Bugs says:

    I read lips. Santorelli said to the ref: “I DON’T wish you a Merry Xmas and I DON’T wish you a Happy New Year.”

  262. Sheldon says:

    The Habs scored? You gotta be shittin’ me!!!

  263. habsfaninboston says:

    How did Darche miss that? Why is he out there?

  264. JIMVINNY says:

    seems like having a point shot that actually hits the net kind of helps.

  265. punkster says:

    It’s a Festivus miracle.

    ***Subbang!!!***

  266. Sheldon says:

    The Canada/Sweden game has been a cracker. Crappy goaltending at both ends 5-5 and likely headed for OT!

  267. GrimJim says:

    I’m a 48-year old man walking around with a red,white and blue pompom on his head because it’s attached to my Habs toque. Which one of us needs help?

  268. Bob_Sacamano says:

    The game is at 11pm where I live and I am still going to watch it. I seriously need help I guess ;)

  269. Shiloh says:

    I’m intrigued by the compound adjective “pussy-ass”, Boone. It seems oxymoronic.

  270. Mike Boone says:

    I’m the kind of guy who keeps his options open. Can’t believe I wrote that. It’s the losing streak. I’m cracking (no pun) up.

  271. Rugger says:

    Festerling most likely going to AHL, keeping lot’s of cap space for another acquisition before the deadline.

  272. Bugs says:

    Cheap. Designed only to rile me.

    If Poolio “hasn’t panned out”, then the Pac-Man is a colossal failure.

  273. The Teacher says:

    Haha, just bugging heh ;)

     

    Pouliot been in NHL a lot longer than Pax, comparing them is buggy!

     

    Hopefully Lappy being dealt ignites a fire under Benny’s butt.

  274. habs001 says:

    he has panned out..he is a 14-16 goals scorer..thats what he is….what i have seen from him he may have one great year when everything goes in but he is a career teens scorer…better than many players in the nhl

  275. habsfaninboston says:

    Nice pass Gomer!

  276. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    COMEBACK?? YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME?

    WHO ARE THESE GUYS DRESSED UP AS HABS

  277. JIMVINNY says:

    That was genius by Gomez.  Absolute GENIUS.

  278. OneTimer says:

    …Eh, I was gonna post something sarcastic about how everyone says Gomez sucks…but ya seriously. Maybe Gomez ain’t a half bad player huh?

  279. JasonM says:

    When it rains, it pours.

  282. Habs Fan in Oil Country says:

    that was thing of pure beauty!!!!!! Keep it up boys!!!

  283. Shiloh says:

    OK – I take it back. Gomer completed one hell of a pass! Et le but!!!!

  284. OneTimer says:

    GO HABS GO!!

    Islanders DID help cure the WSH slump….

    And to think the Habs just traded their leader in hits (albeit a faux-boxer p###y-ass schmuck)

    Oy-oy-oy…..

    There goes their scoring quota for the evening!

  289. Danno says:

    The Wiz and the Munchkins down in Munchkinland can finally see a win somewhere over the rainbow.

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  290. Max_a_million says:

    Can Wiz suck like that more, because his cannon is making a huge difference here.

  291. Keith says:

    OVERTIME in WJHC! Great game!

  292. 134 says:

    WOOHOO~!!!!! They are ALIVE! Now let’s just hope the boys remember that they still got about 25 min of game left to play.

  293. Bugs says:

    I’m on top of the Calèche du Sexe marquee!

  294. OneTimer says:

    For the love of god Habs, don’t take the next penalty.

  295. 24 Cups says:

    Oliver Roy scares the hell out of me. 

    Canada has always had such great goalies but I don’t know about this year…

  296. habfab14120 says:

    Canada-Sweden.  OT.

  297. 24 Cups says:

    Oliver Roy scares the hell out of me. 

    Canada has always had such great goalies but I don’t know about this year…

  298. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    Ohh JM is not gonna like that..

  299. CHsam says:

    The server needs more Jack Daniels. Lots of it.

  300. t1tan5 says:

    Wow, is the HIO server hosted inside a tin shed?

  301. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    Finally!

  302. JIMVINNY says:

    At least we can take confort in the knowledge that like the habs, the HIO server sucks.

  303. Danno says:

    H I/O server is acting up again…

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  304. JasonM says:

    You know at some point that server issue should be taken care of. :)

  305. Danno says:

    Giggity giggity!

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  306. JasonM says:

    Shots are 36-18… for the Habs!

  307. JIMVINNY says:

    Pyatt seems to be happy about Laps getting traded.  He’s playing very well.

     

    And they call the slash on AK, but not the repeated holds against the cats.  nice.

  308. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    Can we seriously ship AK please.

  309. JasonM says:

    That stick broke pretty easily.

  310. t1tan5 says:

    I’d take that penalty for AK over lazy play any time.

  311. Danno says:

    Are today’s hockey sticks made of styrofoam?

    This is bullsh*t

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  312. The Teacher says:

    Happy New Year Everyone, server down again, what in the worl is going on????????????

  313. topher5468 says:

    HIO sever is horrible, can it play defense for the Habs

    “It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”

  314. t1tan5 says:

    Say what you want about his lack of speed/skill, but Gill is a PK dynamo.

  315. JIMVINNY says:

    40 shots, and approximately 80% of them have hit vokoun in the chest.

  316. Danno says:

    Hey! Was that an Ice Girl or a nice girl?

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  317. habsfaninboston says:

    On the bright side, they’re not missing the net.

  318. Danno says:

    Worldwide conspiracy — Habby Leaks.

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  319. The Teacher says:

    MUCH better than rate le filet-ing

  320. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    At least they’re shooting again – work in progress.

  321. The Teacher says:

    LOL, TRUE THAT!

  322. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    hahhah

  323. CHsam says:

    GIGGITY !!! …..and didnt JM look like he delivered that message at gunpoint ?

  324. diehardhab says:

    Unless Festerling becomes the second coming of Josh Gorges there’s no way we win this deal

    The torch be yours to hold it high!

  325. Max_a_million says:

    I guess we save a little money, but we definitely got hosed.

  326. MikeL says:

    We get some cap space – Which I think is the key, along with opening opportunities for other players. Cap space cannot be judged until after the trade deadline.

  327. JIMVINNY says:

    looked to me like andrei was tripped there.

  328. Habs Fan in Oil Country says:

    Same sh*t different night…I’ve come to expect the reffing to be atrocious every single night.

  329. Exit716 says:

    Canada-Sweden at 4pm.

     

  330. NoTinFoilCups says:

    Well there is some good hockey to look forward to today after all.

  331. Bob_Sacamano says:

    Maybe both of us…

  332. sidhu says:

    Festerling was captain of the Vancouver Giants’ memorial cup winning team:

  333. thorandresson says:

    Gorges was the captain of the Memorial Cup winning Kelowna Rockets, can you say second coming?

  334. JIMVINNY says:

    Darche interfered with and high sticked, ak tripped, and we get the first penalty.  BS.

  335. Danno says:

    Here we go again………..

     

    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  336. longtimehabsfan says:

    It’s official: We’re in full panic mode.

  337. doogmac says:

    5 minutes too early on that prediction there boone

  338. habsfan2442 says:

    Putting on the same jerseys doesn’t make a team. You’re still just a collection of individuals until you find a common goal.

  339. DearyLeary says:

    I have a feeling it’s only just beginning.

  340. Exit716 says:

    So have the IT support techs come to hate Habsinsideout.com yet?

  341. JIMVINNY says:

    Man, when Gomez gets going like that, you can almost, just for a second, understand why he’s making so much money.

  342. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    LOVE the effort – SO REFRESHING

  343. topher5468 says:

    Did someone spike Gomers bottle

    “It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”

  344. Shiloh says:

    We get a point!

  345. JIMVINNY says:

    pull Auld.

  346. ManApart says:

    I’m a big critic of Gomez, but he’s playing his best game of the season tonight. flying out there. Nice to see a good Habs effort for once.

  347. Habnofear says:

    HOLLY CRAP..we got a point!

  348. Keith says:

    Back on! Great 3rd period, best game of the road trip imo. Let’s take the two points! GO HABS GO!!!

  349. Propwash says:

    Well, at least the habs get minimum a point. RDS just had a mini HIO meltdown there.
