Go through life without expectations? Hmmm, wonder how that would work out. You surely must be only referring to hockey here?

Don't know if I can agree with that. Fora while now, this team has come to play with a sub-standard compete level and attention to detail, the Chicago game an exception. MT is reaching his shelf-life expiry date. Yes, he did some good things taking over the mess he inherited, but the next levels are beyond his skill set. As to the players, I've always maintained we have the talent, it just seems that MT and his coaching staff can't seem to devise a system that incorporates that talent wisely. Time to move on IMHO.

Ha, pretty funny if you need Hickey to help you punch anyone out, I must be mildly misinformed then

I don't think it's fair to term it "negativity" when a lot of the messages from posters are consistently concluding the same thing. Maybe "concern" is a more accurate description to which I would be curious as to your response then. Also, this game was against Toronto for God's sake, some of us have to endure their fans daily, so "frustration" could be another term. As we all realize, .500 hockey from this point on = no playoffs. If the glass is half full, why fill it eh? I do tend to agree with you though, patience and positivity, BUT only if I can see some evidence that changes are coming, and right now I don't, so excuse me for being concerned.

Yup, $280 per x 4, guess I have a right to bitch, chump change for the players. At least my daughter got to wear her Gallagher jersey with pride, but it still hurts.

Not a bad assessment by Boone. Was at the game, great seats, lower bowl Golds between the 2 benches, centre ice. Intentionally kept an eye on MT, I think he's done what he's capable of, can't see him take our team to the next levels. I truly believe this team has the talent, evenwith the size issue, but the execution and deployment requires a better equipped coach. I have to think that a seemingly bright MB is going to have to seriously assess this team pretty soon and make the necessary changes because even though they are likely making the playoffs, it may be a short run again. Lastly, it truly hurts living in T.O, paying huge bucks for 4 seats, and then having to watch us lose and endure the obnoxious Leaf fans, why oh why can't we just beat them here.
- Comment on Devils won neutral zone battle ‘and it shows in the score’ says Habs Gionta (Video) (2014-01-15 06:19:22)
That is very true, have said it myself a thousand times to most people I know when they ask me about my team. Having said that, a lot can be read into that assessment, the most important being that this team is good enough, the problem is between the ears. Getting a little tired of Gionta's post game after a loss. If he's so astute at knowing why they lose AFTER the game, is he too stupid to know that DURING a game and do the frick something about it?

Yes, it's ironic isn't it?. Games like last night prove that guys like Timo aren't so crazy and maybe some like Mattyleg need to rethink and expect more. I know it was one game, against a Chicago team that seems to have hit a wall lately and didn't play the body like an LA, St. Louis, Boston, San Jose, et al would have, but the Habs sure did play with intensity and purpose, their heads were in the game right to the winning goal. Shouldn't this be the standard we measure against? So the next time Timo makes a comment, I'm going to think about last night's game and stop and go hmmmm? Lol

Yes, that's the reason for the loss, otherwise they played inspired hockey, lots of energy and effort?
