All-time favorite player:
- Comment on Liveblog: Game 4 – Canadiens blow 2-0 lead, lose in OT
More troubling is the hate for certain Habs players by so called Habs fans.
- Comment on Liveblog: Senators spank Canadiens 6-1, take series lead
These are not the players who are -3 tonight.
- Comment on Gionta, Pacioretty game-time decisions
Just looked at the stats for the first playoff game. Pacioretty and DD were the only players +1. The rest were 0 or -. Not that either one had an awesome game but certainly not candidates for a healthy scratch. Why the hate by many on this site for these two players in particular? Especially for a player like Pacioretty who seems to have been playing hurt or recovering from surgery for much of the season an still managed to end the regular season with most goals and most points. Beyond ridiculous.
- Comment on Habs practise after Price named Molson Cup Player of the Year
It is kinda interesting that the player with the most goals and most points basically gets zero votes in the HIO poll for best Hab this season.
- Comment on Therrien shuffles lines; Budaj will face Sabres with new contract
Whose line do you think Eller should be centering? Since you don't believe that Pacioretty is of NHL caliber I'm sure you are not suggesting that he center that line.
- Comment on About last night ...
10 points in 11 games for Max. And most of those games right before or a week after surgery. By all means, put him in the press box! Sheesh.
- Comment on Pacioretty suspended three games
The first problem is that Shanahan is not qualified to make judgements about intent to injure (Max admits he was trying to stop Latang from scoring a goal). How does Shanahan "know" that Max intended to injure him? Is he a mind reader? The second problem is with the pseudo science involved in determining whether Max had time to avoid contact with Latang's head. Is Shanahan an expert on split second decision making? Or an expert on whether a movement is deliberate or a reflex? The result is that all of the recent suspension decisions come off as arbitrary or biased. It seems the only solution is to suspend a player for any head contact.
