alfieturcotte, I'd make a wee change to your lineup....put Moen on your 2nd line, move Pouliot to 3rd line, put Pyatt on the 4th line....ditch MAB and double shift Cammalleri/Gionta with Metro and Pyatt.
Gomez / Gionta / Cammalleri
Pleks / Andrei / Moen
Moore / Lapierre / Pouliot
Metro / Pyatt / Cammalleri/Gionta

TripleX....are you for real? Ok, you can have the selfish underacheiving K brother's and I'll take Pouliot and Gomez anytime....what are SK's stats over the past 3 years....does he play at both ends of the rink? K bro's = taking stupid selfish penalties at the worst time....can't win a Cup with these guys in the lineup....I'll take my chances with Gomes and Pouliot over these two bums.
You can have Hamrlik, Bergeron and LaPierre too....coached by JM, Pearn and managed by the Ghost and Boivin! Good luck building a winning tradition with the K bro's....

Some pieces to the puzzle are in place but there still is some "old guard" that needs to be discarded....Hamrlik, both Kostitsyn's, Price(not blaming him for the loss but do blame him for the 2 immature selfish incidents at the end of the game....kinda reminds me of Komisarek's implosion at last years final game at the Bell Centre), LaPierre. Also, I'd say bye bye to MAB, Jacques Martin, Perry Pearn, Pierre Gauthier, Pierre Boivin....and the entire amateur staff that drafted Andrei K ahead of Jeff Carter.
If this is a "storied" franchise then it needs to start acting like one....not the team that lacked intestinal fortitude in the face of adversity yet again, and imploded badly. The Molson Family needs to seize the day and hire the very best in the hockey business to right this horrific ship ASAP.
Some members of this team lack courage....get rid of the imposters please!
- Comment on Game 14 (adds audio): Bruins toy with Habs (2008-11-14 13:13:16)
we had francos then, now we have lazy euros ^^^I agree 100%. Gainey is not the issue, playing with passion and grit and skill is. les canadiens have the skill part but(for the most part)lack the other...Julien's team was focused and prepared, Carbo's wasn't...that is a huge concern for me!
- Comment on Game 14 (adds audio): Bruins toy with Habs (2008-11-14 09:39:09)
The last time this team put an honest 60 minute effort with any consistency was when Gainey fired Julien and took on the coaching duties. I like Julien and still feel he got a raw deal in Montreal. Don't think for one minute that he doesn't relish prepping his team vs. Carbo and company. His Bruins were ready to play from start to finish, and dominated throughout. This Habs team still has way too many floaters, and when will Price focus for more then one or two games at a time. What the hell was he doing taking a delay of game penalty? How unprepared and soft was he on goal number 5? Incredibly pathetic performance yet again. When will this team start playing for each other and for the jersey?
- Comment on Rocket’s elaborate 1956-57 contract (2008-11-11 15:24:33)
I wish this version of les canadiens played with the skill, determination and passion that the Rocket did for his team and city...Maurice Richard, the greatest Montreal Canadien ever!
- Comment on Game 13: Higgy’s hat, Price’s shutout lift Habs (2008-11-11 15:16:23)
You're wasting Higgins alongside Lang. Lang is too sssllllooooowwwwwww. Shouldn't be on this team. Demote S. and A. Kostitsyn to the fourth line with LaPierre and play Higgins with Koivu and Tanguay. Kovalev with Pleks and Latendresse. Begin, Laraque and Dandenault. We don't lose with Dandenault in the lineup...
- Comment on About last night … (2008-02-20 11:30:16)
A turning point win? Man I hope so, but I thought the same after the comeback vs. NJ. Still not a fan of LaPierre or Smolinski. I'd rather see Chipchura. Hopefully this team takes off. How will this win effect Gainey's trade options? Unless it's Sundin, Jokinen or Tanguay(provided he wants to wear the bleu blanc rouge), I wouldn't make a deal.
