Subban a healthy scratch

Canadiens rookie defenceman P.K. Subban will be a healthy scratch tonight vs. the New Jersey Devils. Yannick Weber will be back in the lineup.

Subban didn’t enjoy his best game last night, twice burned on goals by the Edmonton Oilers in the visitors’ 4-3 overtime win at the Bell Centre.

But coach Jacques Martin’s decision to scratch Subban is bound to create a stir among fans of the team, who will point to underachieving players with more experience than the rearguard who haven’t been similarly left out of uniform this season.

    halak would have continued having success here as well. he’s playing well in st louis by the way. price is having a stellar start with montreal which is what i care more about anyways.

    must you use caps all the time by the way?


  2. habs365 says:

    yes I am a habs fan, unlike were probably a hawks fan last year seen you’re kind come and has nothing to do with the team.. this is a martin thing and I would like to see him get burnt..some players can make mistakes and other’s can’t..martin is screwing with their heads. how would you like to play for a guy, when you’re driving to the rink wondering what line you’re gonna be on tonight, or will you be watching from the pressbox because you made a couple of mistakes..if they didn’t make mistakes..they’d have 50 points now..because of mistakes they have 32..hope you get where I’m coming from..I played hockey..I’m not perfect..and I know hockey fairly well..PK’s punishment uncalled comments were addressed to mr.martin not the fans or can take from it what you want…..

    team effort my friend, so i’m not putting the loss on subban. in my opinion we are better with subban over webber in the lineup every night even in the loss last night ( i like webber too by the way)

    Poo will be MIA again in the playoffs this year also.

    In 8 games Latendresse had 3 g and 3 a.  Last year with the Wild in 55 games, 25 goals and 12 assists.

    Pouliot  in 25 games has 5 goals and 8 assists. Last year in 39, 15 goals and 9 assists.

    Almost a wash, however Latendresse managed to score goals with the Wild when he could not here.

    And Pouliot was nowhere to be found during the playoff run last year.



    Tonight we skate with them, Tonight is our night!

    we didn’t yesterday anyway…

  7. Storm Man says:

    I would but don’t have the time to write a thesis on Lord Martin and his history with younger players. So dont be to harsh on number 6 and 44 tonight as they both do WONDERS on the backend for us tonight.

    Very good response…. I like it.

    There may be other teams, but only ONE Club De Hockey…

  9. joeybarrie says:

    Its funny. I dont remember ONE single person saying what I said. Latendresse was a 30 goal scorer. Now that he is doing well before his injury, we bring that one back up…. OK Lats was absolutely a mistake, HOWEVER it was not JM’s mistake.

    Lets look at D’Agostini, Chips, and the others. By the way. Look what we got for Lats. Pouliot is doing well, and by the way. Pouliot has 39 points for us since he came…. Lats has 43. Kind of a washin my eyes….plus the difference in plus minus is over 10 in favor of Pouliot…

    There may be other teams, but only ONE Club De Hockey…

    And he’s doing great this year.

    Showed up to camp out of shape. Called out by his coach.

  11. habs365 says:

  12. KenD29 says:

    You are right. Sometimes we do choose what we want to see.

    PK didn’t cost them the game mistakes happen in every many mistakes did edmonton make..we didn’t score on their mistakes..and we quit playing..wasn’t for would have been a blow should have been talkin well as the whole team..they lost a point..if one point makes the difference in making the playoffs..they shouldn’t be there anyway..they lucked in last year..nothing to show for big deal..when they put together a stanley cup team..they will bring the cup the Hawkes,Pitts, Detroit..don’t get up’ll be waiting for awhile……

    it start’s with coaching..than a team..sorry we don’t have it.
