when playing markov is not only "the best d on the team this season" he has been the habs best PLAYER for the last 10 years.

agree with comment on prust getting small minutes. brierre playing ahead of him is an insult to prust, the players, fans. when it counts most therrien will have to come calling for prust to do the the tough work (bruins, pens, p[lay offs etc) .....prust wont but he could be very coy with the coach at that time.

"is there a better def 6 man unit than the habs 6 man" ? the bruins have 6 defense men that are all better than gorges,diaz,murray. in other words those 3 d would have a hard time dressing for games if they were bruins.

"so tell me what fighting did to help the team....its pointless. get rid of it" if you are so concerned with 'helping the team" tell us how not fighting would help the team. sabre goes in late with stick on price, then punches habs captain...tell me how not fighting at that point "helps the team" the players all stood up on the bench and cheered murray. coach commends him. murray likes his role. i would say if the players dont mind fighting in the game....then its in. who cares what the fans who are not on the ice think.

"4 game winning streak thanks to therrien" 'justify your dislike of him" dont dislike him. he seems like s nice guy. is he the best man for the job of coaching the montreal canadiens? i sure hope not. the four game winning streak is thanks to therrien is it? lol...why constant line changes every game dating back to last march. they win four in a row and what? therrien hit the jack pot at the spinning wheel? he was canned by montreal and pitt with out winning anything. never coached after getting canned in pitt. totally out coached in play offs last year. all i am saying is there is a better coach out there. therrien is an ahl coach at best. would not be working in nhl if not for the fact he is bilingual. fact

yes i applaud markov for going agent free. be cool to see more players doing it. may see more vets follow markovs lead. altleast when they are gonna be signing what looks to be there last contract. agree with boone. mb should give markov what ever he wants. say 30 mill four years. or 35 for 5 years. subban 7 years 50 mill. gionta...trade at deadline. do not resign no matter what. gorges.....trade at deadline. yes he "gives all he's got" (thats like my buddy who offered to give all his money to help the poor, problem is he only has fifteen bucks) habs could do better than gorges on top 4. dd.....trade. has talent yes but just the odd small man out on a team that is lacks size. pleks....extension but reg shift and pk. get him off the pp as he is not a powerplay man. doing pk, pp, reg shift, key face offs and carring gionta is too taxing. will be burnt and invisible by play offs like every season. bourque......trade bait. this guy will be a suitcase and play for atleast 6 teams before he is done. boulion....retire. therrien........replace him

"brierre a better fit with elar and galchenyuk instead of prust"? yea right. habs finally get a player like prust who media and fans have been screaming for for years and you wanna replace him with a small 38 year washed up forward who was just bought out and cut by own team. and do what with 10 million dollar prust? stick him on the fourth line ? the line that you just complimented? prust needs to play regualrly. having him ride shot gun with the galchenyuk (future no 1 center) and elar (knocked out senseless game 1 play offs) is the perfect spot for prust. replacing him on that line with brierre????? think about it

did not like pax just standing there and watching when gallagher got crunched from behind by meyers. max was just watched the entire play from 2 feet away. his response ? turned and skated away. just one of the reasons that this is one of my least favourite canadien teams. been a fan since 1970. thats 44 years and 44 teams. this team would not crack the top 40.
