I guess NYI were a bit tired but habs were passing beautifully tonite. Much more engaged and smart w the puck. PK was so much better - Markov was fantasies and N8 should never go back down. Thought the 4th line was excellent and is it me or does Bournival 99% of the time make the right play??? Prust was very good too - I don't know what happened but whole te played much better Please leave lines alone for a bit?

Romaniuk is great - he had laryngitis - could barley talk.

Timo Gotta include Paccioretty. Fact is - it's not a very satisfying team to watch - Galchenyuk got smoked again to no response. Therriens blender approach just seems so random. Guys have no time to gel. But clearly the plan is to play scared - don't take time to make a breakout pass - flip it or smack it on the boards, don't make a hit cause you might be out of position and don't give a line more than two shifts to gel. Or a kid like Sven comes up and averages a point a game ( small sample but) w Pleks and immediately goes to 4th line. He's not a 4th line player. Neither is PAP - but he's not a 1st,2nd or 3rd either. He should just be like a field goal kicker - shoot outs only. It's not satisfying bc they don't do breakout passes at all anymore not stretch passes. It's not satisfying bc they do not hit - like at all. If emelin doesn't want to hit - he needs to be in the stands. The evidence points to this coach's lack of intelligence is being covered by Carey Price and Max. For now we are ok - in two three weeks we will be middle of the pack which is fine Issue is the farm is not full of sand nor size. MB still has work to do - I just can't see how such a soft team Will get it done in the playoffs.

Who's a better GM?? He hasn't been here that long and has drafted well. He got rid of a lot of garbage. And he's cool. MT - I'm with you - tell Bylsma to take French lessons.

Lets do two simple things: Go back to the lines from the 9-1 run Outlaw that stupid flip out of the zone PK does all the time - make a pass pls. PP bonus thing: stop rimming it hard around the boards all the time - it gives teams time to get on you. It's a good but not great team. PK has regressed, Gally27 has regressed, and emelin etc etx. We've warts like every team but at least w guys like Gallagher and Pleks and Max and Markov we have some character. No Dion.
- Comment on Emelin could be odd man out for Habs against Blue Jackets (2015-01-14 00:40:20)
Pp has no sense of urgency and they don't shoot enough. How bout this - get some video of the top PPs In t he league and COPY them. Don't like the new lines - for D - emelin wasn't hitting anyway - and when's he's not - he's a 7th D. The type of player we sorely lack is a Matt Martin type Columbus is a hard working team -it will be tough game

Would just say - this coach is lucky to have Carey Price Sekac on 4th line is brutal as is new Galchenyuk line - Prust - really? Top6 means top 6 - ours are Pleks Gallys, pacc, Eller and a trade. It's ok to be a fast and skilled team - but actually zero hits nite in and nite out - hard to watch. Given their crap PP and possession numbers - it's hard to be totally confident.

Putting emelin and Gilbert on at all in OT is unforgivable. Play 4 d in OT.

Btw - with three players on - you can't go w less The other d when plks broke his stick - just throw some guys down - take another penalty

Losing streak coming - the lack of any physical pushback is disgusting.
