    A lot of talk about how lousey JM’s so called “system” is…but can any one explain how the “system” is preventing our so-called skilled offensive players from scoring goals.  According to NHL.com;

    Montreal is 4th in the league for taking shots on goal averging 33.0 shots per game…only San Jose, Boston and Detroit averga more shots per game.

    Yet the Habs are 5th worst in goals per game scored…with only Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa and New Jersy scoring less goals per game…

    I do not believe the JM system is getting in the way of our offense getting chances. What is getting int he way of our offense scoring goals is they do not have enough talent scoring finishers.  We are clogged up on the top 6 with players like Moen, AK, Gomez.

    We ned to fill the second line with 3 players that can consistently bury the puck and go to the net and not fear the middle of the ice or the front of the net.

    Patches, Cammi, Plek are a good first line…We need Gionta with two more power forwards that can score and go to the net…and those two are not AK and Gomez they need to be gone any way we can make that happen.

    I do agree with Jack Todd’s assessment of Gomez, he is the original “hole in the donut” on his line…and if he isn’t going to win faceoffs, score goals or back check then what the F@&k is doing out there?

    No rebuttals to Todd’s take on this one? Far off the mark re Subban..his skill is not the issue, and his critics are not racist for criticizing his demeanor and dirty tactics. Once again crying racism where there isn’t any. Superior? lol Meanwhile Alex Pietrangelo quietly racks up the points with a +12. Why he wasn’t considered for the ASG/SuperSkillz I’ll never know.

    Grabs back in Habs no? No because of the size. Yes, if he was bigger because becoming a father has matured him and the dynamics of the room wont be the same.

    But cant deal with size issue anymore… so no!

    Like it or not (and I don’t like it either BTW) it’s the best system the Habs have had since ’93.

    I few comments on the experience as a fan at the HC If I may.

    It was over all a fun time takeaway the result. The pre-party outside the stadium was great, good band, I think they were from Montreal. At least two of them sported Habs jerseys. Lots of Hab fans I’d say about 35% easy. Allmost all the fans were very good natured. I did not get ribbed too much as the flames added to our demise.
    McMahon stadium is completely out of date and has nowhere near the support facilities for it’s full capacity. Attemps to discharge and refeul were fruitless as parkas in jerseys cramed in opposite directions. It was dangerous for kids. Some very nervous Moms there.
    Anyways I manged to to stay warm and have a good time.
