His post-selection interview nailed for me! We need a response for other teams nastiness. McCarron wants to be Lucic, here's to hoping he will be!

7 hits. Nuff said.

Add Nilan and Chelios......and Kordic for good mesure. Enough is enough.

I for one don't mind a good shalacking right about now. It's a great wake up call before the playoffs start. It sucks that it had to be against T.O but it worked out for us the last time they beat us. The one thing that absolutely drives me nuts is the lack of emotion the habs show sometimes. Ok im not expecting a brawl out of our guys but come on show a little grit even in loss. When Gally is the only guy who seems to care, we got a problem. This is where a guy like Gionta as a captain isn't gonna cut it for us. This guy leads by scoring and some leadership in the dressing room but when the going gets tough, i don't think he rallies the team that much. I'm worried about the lack of pride some of our key players show when some adversity is front and center. Moen to me looks absolutely complacent playing for this team. Yes he kills penalties, yes he only plays like 10 mins a game but these qualities can easily be replaced by a hungry waiver wire pick up a la Halpern who coincidentally seems to be one of the only guys who looks Playoff ready. The others not quite so much. Now i got that off my chest, i don't think the sky is falling and we should trade the entire team. One thing i would like to see is a team that if your gonna lose, lose with some pride and leave an impression that next time won't be so easy. I know Prust will bring it, Gally is gonna bring it, i think subban showed a tiny bit with that snow shower that cost him a penalty but you know what it was nice to see a little life out of someone for a change. Get mad, show some emotion! If it were a loss to Florida i wouldn't even bat an eye. Bad game, it happens, let it go, get ready for the next one. Against Toronto, the same doesn't apply. This isn't just another game. This is true rivalry at its best, either you get with the program or you shouldn't be playing for us. Now, im starting to see a trend here that is looking worse and worse every time. The Habs are starting to get that inferiority complex with the Leafs as they did with the Bruins. The lack of push back whether it be by scoring or just making some hits, stirring the pot and whatnot. In a 5-1 game in the third against a rival- not to mention one we might be playing against in the playoffs soon, the last thing the team should be doing is killing the time remaining. A statement needed to be made and we fell short. I can't be the only one who saw this.

I agree but at the same time, Lucic and Clarkson are extremely rare commodities. The teams that have them don't give them away easily. Vancouver picked up Kassian but from what i've seen he doesn't match up to Lucic. He's a good 2nd line rugged winger though. I honestly think people put a little too much into finding the next Lucic, rather slowly upgrading the teams toughness is probably easier. For every Gio or DD you got to have a bruiser that picks up the slack, not necessarily a Lucic but somebody who can help out.

I believe nothing will become of it but i hope enough GM's put up a stink about it and a rule be put into place to stop future deals like this. I think it should be if Thomas doesn't report in the next month than the deal would be null and void.

Really? Can you find a link, i'm curious to read/hear it. He may not be the Lindros type player we could use but i wouldn't go as far as saying he's soft. What would that make Eller, DD, Plek, Army, Pacman? His stats wouldn't indicate it - http://www.nhl.com/ice/playerstats.htm?fetchKey=20122NYRSASALL&sort=hits&viewName=rtssPlayerStats

To be honest, I'm less dissapointed with losing 6-0 than I am with HOW the game ended. Face it, they played better than us saturday night and we'll be ready the next time we play them but when you get "beat up" as well, that just deflates the team and confidence plummets as a result. There needs to be a sense of push back at least from a physical stand point to say "we lost the game but we didn't go down without a fight" - no pun intended. On the whole Boyle trade idea, i think he is a worthy asset in more than one way. Faceoffs is key. He's good at the dot and that will help big time. He can score goals. Not a 50 goals scorer but he can pot more than Orr can. Size/toughness, he may not be the best fighter but with his size he isn't a push over neither. He might not have destroyed Mclaren but i highly doubt "ugly-face" Frazer would of been laughing. Aside from fighting just having a guy that size can make a difference in front of the net, battling in the corners and landing some solid hits not to mention he's buds with Prust. If the price isn't to high i would definitely pick him up!

Thank you Commandant for actually being the voice of reason around here. You along with a couple others are the only reason i keep coming back to HIO honestly.
