Good post, HabFan. Surprised that Nygren isn't coming along as expected. One also has to wonder about McCarron. Size certainly matters, but if he can't keep up then one wasted 1st rounder. I wasn't happy with choosing him as it seemed like an over reaction to the lack of size on the team - at that time. No one is talking about lack of size now. Did we draft a 4th liner with our first round pick?

Thanks for the link, but I think I am losing my religion with Robinson. I have felt that he would have been great for our young D trying to crack the line up, and remember Willie Mitchell raving about how good a coach he was in NJ. But, his comment about SJ "never should have lost to LA" sounds like the same bitter arrogance as when as NJ's coach who lost in the Cup finals saying the better team lost, when Colorado beat them in 2001.

The second goal was through a screen. Give your head a shake.

We have seen some great hockey from Vanek. But here is an article from the Bleacher report that might interest readers. As a bonus, Phaneuf is also included: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2017941-ranking-the-10-most-overrated-stars-in-the-nhl-today/page/11

Good question, Shiram. Has Marky lost his check, leading to two goals in 30 seconds and not been benched?

By my logic Subban is responsible for his on ice mistakes, not Therrien. It's not as if he and the other coaches, including Daigneau, aren't trying to grow him. Subban has undeniable talent, but why do you imagine that Babcock did not play him in Sochi? And, by my logic, if Marky makes mistakes, they are his and not anyone else' s.

How are PK's brain farts the result of Therrien?

A little help, please, as I have standing bet with a Leafs fan: What is the Habs record against the Leafs this year (ie W/L?
