Let's put it this way...it mind over matter. Budaj enjoyed great success against Boston, and his mates knew it and bought into the Buds is a Bruin killer! Tokarsky stoned The Ducks this year and team could capitalize on that. As long as the team believes in the goalie and goalie believes the teams is behind him-anyone can win! Pick one- and win these next two games. Hell,!the Rangers have very sadly latched on to a newbie teammate and his mother! With no disrespect to France St Louis and her family, it is really classless to use this very sad family moment as a rally cry.

Let the macdonaugh deal go! The fact is he didn't want to come to Montreal, he didn't want to go to play for Bulldogs. He dragged his heels and resisted. Gainey did what he needed to do at the time. Picked up a centre, (who was well received the first year) and traded a young D that none of you knew about until after the fact! Whinning now would be pointless...no? If they forced him to come to Hamilton/ Montreal and played like he felt...you'd hate anyway! Move on!

It's pretty simple people...Habs had to play first game at 1:00, not our most sparkling time to play a game, as witnessed in early Bruins game. Losing Price isn't anybody's first choice, that said the Team needs to put on their big boy pants, get over it and help the goaltender win a game. Feeling sorry for themselves didn't work so well yesterday. Budaj and Tokarsky need their buy in. They need to know that they are as valuable to the success of this Team as Price is. He is a "very nice to have" element , but not a "need to have !" The players need to know they are all valued for their specific role! As my grandmother used to say "every man to his job!" If they don't believe and understand that this is true, and they believe Carey is the "only piece" that can move them forward then yes the are doomed. Personally I don't think they should collapse because of Price going down. They need to believe in the team concept that has been the coaches team mantra. They should be reminded that everyone contributed and picked it up when others were hurt or injured. This team should be able to rally around this as they are a right group, or so they say. The Rangers, bless them have rallied around MSL and his mother. They barley know their teammate(with a few exceptions) and so therefor don't know his mother. And even tho I personally think it is classless to use the death of a guys mother to win a hockey game, especially when they barely know each other... The Montreal Canadiens should be able to rally around their team and mates and do this for all of them and not just for one individual. Just my opinion, but I have like the chemistry these guys have shown this year! Am I wrong!? BUCK up boys! And, for my final thoughts...put the damned lines back together!!! DD-Patches-Vanek Plecky- Gally -Galchenyuk Eller-Bourke - Gio Prust-Weise -Briere GO HABS GO!!! And stop whinning!!!

On Vanek-he definitely has another gear. If he doesn't bring it or doesn't show it, how does he get a contract from Minnesota? If he remains awful, and gets a contract from Minni, then you have to wonder. Conspiracy theorists like me would have a field day. Two "hawk" owners get what they want. One gets a very good player and the other gets to the finals. If they're lucky, two get to conference finals.

Boo can't fight the way he used to and should stop.,,

So, was Ryan Malone one of the reasons Marty St. Louis left Tampa? He told NY reporters the Olympics was one part of why he left.

NHL has different sets of rules...for Flyers, and for Boston. Maybe we can ask which ones will they be applying to this series, flyers, Boston or the rule book!?

PK is the player they should want to keep. He has skill, ability and is seemly able let all the histrionics that is Mtl roll off his back. He's young and makes mistakes at times, but immediately corrects himself. He can change the game at will. Reminds me greatly of Doughty in his first 3 years. And Doughty made mistakes, still does. But his ability to change the game out weighs any errors on D. If the Habs brass doesn't deal with this problem effectively they won't live it down. If they trade him and he gets better and better, they will never live it down. Essentially, PK has something that they should not overlook...he likes it in Montreal and wants to be a Hab. Not many do. For reasons that we are all aware of. Pacioretty is one of those players that want to be elsewhere and will not sign here again. He wants to be in New York- with any of the 3 teams.
- Comment on Liveblog: Game 78 – Canadiens fall behind 3-0, win a wild one 7-4 (2014-04-04 20:15:27)
I live in Toronto now, I pay for centre ice to watch all games...I pay for the French package as well . I don't watch the Habs on CBC. Maybe if I stop my French package and my centre ice package in protest of how this team treats PK...and all other young players, the brass will listen. From a service perspective the ones you have to worry about are the ones who don't complain...the go away quietly and never return.

Therrien isn't as quick to bench others. Why? The goals were on Budaj IMO. Emelin makes hideous errors as seen last game. Boullion is awful, tonight Weaver is helping him look better. Evenif we won the Stanley Cup I would still say the same thing. Therrien should not be a head coach. Times have changed, coaches have changed...maybe Bergevin is of the same ilk. All I know, is PK is not allowed it seems to do what he does best it seems, and is punished for defensive mistakes. Al things being equal- things are not equal. I almost think they are consciously trying to expose PK's mistakes in order to say "see, you're not that good yet, so you need to take less money!" Be careful Mtl brass if you lose him- and it comes back to bite you it will be worse than Roy. You can teach without punishing, you can teach with positive reinforcement.
