- Comment on Therrien: Sens time-out with 17 seconds left "classless" (Video)
Max Pacioretty is invisible and has been for too long. Last night was set up early in the evening with a total lack of disciplined play and control of emotions. Our game plan was left in the dressing room. When we don't use our speed and the 'pack' mentality, and rely on stretch passes and Hail Mary lobs passes into the neutral zone - the penalties soon follow. Then our game deteriorates into stupid selfish penalties and the death spiral is set. We cannot win games relying on the gallant efforts of a few - PK, Gallagher, Pleks. We do not have a plethora of offensive talent. And with the loss of Eller, Emelin and a lot of 'no shows', this will be a quick exit from the playoffs. But, a good lesson. Go Habs!

The glass is more that half full! Too many have short memories and think they know more than those managing and coaching our beloved Habs. This has been a huge turnaround season. Last year was a low point. We are in a slump. Let's not throw the baby out with the bath water. We have a great organization and we are headed in the right direction. We have a core of great young players and a good complement of accomplished and capable veterans. Not to mention a good number of draft choices. Will we win the cup this year? It would be nice, but it is more likely to hope for a good run and be happy. Go Habs!

Tonight and the last game, we seem to be chasing our tails and not sticking to the aggressive puck pursuit in all zones. And MT seems reluctant to call a time out and get pull our heads out of a dark place. I really like and respect Gionta, but are we missing strong leadership in these situations. Or are we missing some grit from Bourque and Proust?

Kaberle has become too slow for the Habs speed.

Why would we want Camelleri back? I hope he retires with Calgary. And you ask why? http://news.hockeydraft.ca/2012/01/11/mike-cammalleri-we-play-like-losers/

The glass is more than 1/2 full. Yet many moan and complain. Our beloved Habs are doing very well. Enjoy it. Go Habs!
