You need to tighten your tin foil hat a bit.

As long as they finish middle of the pack and don't draft high I'm good.

At least they dropped the new format and went back to what works.

I am surprised that krob hasn't mentioned the same thing considering way back when he was touting the Habs playing 5 on 5 hockey that way with Subban as the centre D. And I did notice that.

I come here to read mature comments like yours however I will admit that some of the more "emotional" and less thought out comments are annoying.

I like Weaver and think he was a good depth pick-up but I'd like to see somebody like Dietz or even Pateryn play in his stead, at least for a look see. Weaver is a warrior and is ultra gritty but I am not sure he'll be good for the play-offs if he doesn't sit a bit. As for Bourque. I am not impressed at all with his play. He's a drag on the 3rd line and I'd much rather Sekac take his place. The other play who IMHHO opinion is not playing badly but I wouldn't mind seeing replaced by Bournival is Moen. I certainly wouldn't sit Pacioretty but if I was on the coaching staff I'd give him a talking to. His play in this game was extremely undisciplined and the only reason it didn't stand out like a sore thumb was because as a unit the whole team lacked composure. People complaining about the refereeing are juvenile. It's in the player's hands not the refs. The Habs are 2nd to last in terms of how many more minutes they are on the PK versus the PP versus Calgary who are 2nd. It's no wonder this game was so lopsided. People who think it's a league conspiracy should join the 9/11 Truthers for a bitching session. The fact is the Habs are undisciplined. Thankfully they have one of the better PK units in the team led by none other than Carey F. It was a crappy win but good teams find a way. Whoever is in charge of the Power Play should be replaced. Currently the Habs are only scoring at 10.3% rate which is unacceptable. Anything under 15% is pathetic which goes to show just how crappy the Habs have been on the PP. Bergevin said the team is not elite and he's right. They are winning which is obviously better than losing but this is a very young team that will get better as the season progresses. 8-2 is better than 7-3 and certainly better than 2-8, unless you're Buffalo, which we're not.

I see the comedians are out tonight, but not the ones who are actually humorous. It was a crappy win. As a team the Habs played like a team hunting for the draft lottery. MB said it best. This team is not elite. However they are batting .800 As for some of the comments here... I've seen more composure from a cat in heat.

The refs didn't get paid? Oh they did! Guess that makes them professional. The Habs were undisciplined. Very much so. Maybe clean your bleu-blanc-rouge coloured lenses.

I wonder what happened to ZepFan2 and Bugs.
