One more drunken stupor on it's way.

For those who think Luongo will be named No.1 based on his performance today vs. Price's performance yesterday, all I can say is fat chance. Luongo might get the nod, but not based on today's game. Andre Racicot could have recorded a shutout vs. Austria today. True, Price mishandled the puck which lead to the only goal against yesterday, but if that puts him that much below Luongo I'd be surprised. I think Price gets at least one more look, and starts the next game. I know the CBC hockey know-it-alls like to spout off, but they don't know any more than you or I. Babcock and his staff make the decisions, not Maclean and Company. How do you pick a guy to run with based on these two games?

Your comments on blocking shots are exactly what I think, as well. If you have the puck, you aren't going to be blocking a shot. Therrien totally lost me, when he proclaimed that the Habs are a grinding team! Seriously? What are they grinding? Perhaps their teeth, at the thought of this moron coming into the room and onto the ice every day. We all knew MT would be a short-term, stop-gap solution. Surely his days are coming to an end, but likely not until the off-season. He fooled me for a little while, but the fresh paint job is starting to wear, and the bondo is starting to show. One more thing.....get those damn cameras out of the room and let the players be themselves without prying eyes. It's fun for the fans, for sure, but I can't see how a player could be pleased in any way with the constant scrutiny of the TV show cameras.

That's definitely half of the problem, I think. The other half being that this team does not have one single player who can be counted on to score consistently.

Kinda have to agree with you. The Habs are not an elite team. There will be nights when they win against teams that are considered much better than they are, and there will be nights when they lose against teams that are considered an easy two points. Here's a newsflash for the hand-wringers...it happens to pretty much every team. Are the Leafs better than Chicago? Are the Leafs better than Boston? We know the answer to that question, and yet both Boston and Chicago are considered among the elite teams and they each lost to Toronto...who can be considered among the group that Montreal falls into...or, we like to think, lower. There's lots of hockey to be played yet. Habs will win their fair share, I think. Therrien mentioned the hectic schedule being a factor, and I agree. It's also tougher on smaller players who are getting banged around every other night. Now I know that someone is going to point out that every team has a hectic schedule. And they will be right about that. But will they take the time to closely examine the other teams and notice that most of them also have had some bad stretches, or low points, in their season to this point? I tend to think it happens to everyone. As a Habs fan, I know I have to enjoy the good stretches, and I have learned to tolerate that low points. Things will even out and the Habs will make the playoffs. When you look at the makeup of the East, and the Habs division in particular, making the playoffs cannot be taken for granted, but I think they will make it. When they get there, they will have to work their tails off to advance a round or two. They are not among the NHL's elite.

Hahaha....I love that. Kadri tries his typical "slash and back away" but Calvert drops his gloves right away and grabs him before anyone else can intervene. Perfect! Looked like Kadri recieved a couple of good ones, too.

I think TSN employs too many washed-up ex-goaltenders. As does CBC.

Sure we get a few like that, but the overwhelming majority of our goals are of the type I mentioned. Did you think any of our three shootout skaters last night had any chance to score as they skated in, looking totally unsure of what they were going to do. Each one of them had "fail" written all over them the moment they took off with the puck. They just didn't have any swagger, or look of confidence. Hey, it's just my opinion.
