- Comment on Liveblog: Senators spank Canadiens 6-1, take series lead
Everyone's talking about how hard the Sens came out hitting...stupid refs messed up....they are the ones that set the tempo of the game....two missed calls in the first minute....cross check to the face of Subban and then a call which would have been made on Prust....they tripped up Price....no calls...showed the Sens that they could do whatever they want...messed up!
- Comment on Gionta: 'Step in the right direction' (Video)
It's funny, there are a lot of Canadiens fans out there that are schizophrenic. One minute they can't believe the Habs have pulled off such a miraculous season. The next minute they are calling for Therrien, Price, Bergevin, etc... heads! Then 3 minutes and a win later there they are "Habs are going far into the playoffs, WOOHOO!" Yes, Montreal exceeded expectations! They were suppose to end this season fighting for the 1st overall pick! Instead, they are fighting for 1st in their division! One of their top D-man (Emelin) goes down for the rest of the season, they still clinch their spot in the playoffs, and then goes the 3 game horror! A fan cheers for their team when they are winning! A true fan cheers for their team when they are losing, especially when the team has given their fans a reason to cheer through more than 3/4's of a season! A 3 game slide does not mean "Pack-it-up the season is over!" (For peet sake, the playoffs haven't even started yet!) Does a win against one of the worst teams in the league mean that they are over their slide? No! However, anyone who has gone through a rough patch knows that what helps a person get through it is: 1) Hard work and effort AND 2) The help and support from the ones that surround and care about the person. All that I'm saying is, if you want the Habs to make it far into the playoffs...show your support....cheer.....even if they are losing.....the players are human beings too and even they need a moral booster! You want them to get out of this funk...show your support!
- Comment on And here come the Rangers
I believe that one of the main problems we have this year is that the players aren't sure where they stand.... Over the last few years the habs have tried to roll 3 "1st lines" and a 4th line....unfortunately, this year they don't have the talent to do that.... Eller is not a shutdown center man and neither is Kostitsyn a shutdown player..... The players need to be told their role.... With a heathy lineup: I think that the top two scoring lines should consist of: Cole - Desharnais - Paciorretti Kostitsyn - Eller - Bourque Now for the 3rd line (the shutdown line) I know there is a lot of money pumped into it, but we know that these players thrived in the past working under these roles.... Gomez - Plekanec - Gionta And then have a REAL 4th line.... White - "Energetic Center" - Blunden On defense....when Markov comes back.... Gorges - Subban Markov - Emelin Diaz - Kaberle In an ideal world Kaberle would be substituted for a REAL shutdown defenseman (each defense pairing needs an offensive defenseman and a stay at home defenseman). Just my two cents!

no one seems to be blaming the referees (or Toronto head office) for their outstanding plays! :-p
- Comment on Liveblog: Tough loss
