Let’s try this again

Carey Price gets his second pre-season Bell Centre start tonight.

As you may have heard, the first did not go well.

The Florida Panthers are the visitors as the Canadiens wrap up a series of four exhibition games in as many nights.

Team A is winless in its two starts, and Price has allowed 10 goals in 90 minutes of action.

Tonight will be the last hurrah for several of the Canadiens kids as the team will be cut down to manageable size for the final two games of the pre-season.

Early departures: Louis Leblanc and Jarred Tinordi, with Team A bolstered by the addition of Subban, Picard, Eller, White, Desharnais and Engqvist

• Pat Hickey on the win over the Wild and quotes from the room

• Jack Todd is not a Price fan

• Neither is Réjean Tremblay

• François Picard sees Ryan O’Byrne and Alexandre Picard battling for a roster spot

• So are Max Pacioretty and Ryan White

    Price needs to accept that he can get scored on and the team can still win. It seems like when he gets scored on or makes a mistake, you may as well pull him right there because he will let in 3 more. He needs to be able to bounce back from these mistakes and shut the door. That’s one big problem he is having right now. He needs to build on some kind of foundation here but his goalie mojo is a house of cards.

    “Hi, I’m Jack Todd. Blah, blah, blah, Vietnam. Blah, blah, blah, I hate everything. Blah, blah, blah, I’m drunk. Paycheck, please!”

    The day I place any importance on what Jack Todd or Réjean Tremblay say about the Habs, is the day that I root for another team. I don’t mind criticism, but when that’s all you know how to do, then I believe you know nothing.

    Can somebody look through archives and pull one article from these guys that says something good about the Habs?  

    Can somebody deny that we are talking about difficult performances during TWO GAMES of the bloody pre-season?

    Come on, that’s like rating my golf game in April, after six months of not hitting a ball.
