Reliable and Consistent are two words that should not be in the same sentence when talking about ANY of the Habs D right now unless you want to say I wish they were more reliable and consistent. Having said that, there may be merit in putting Emelin on his correct side with Murray and Beaulieu with Gorges. Then out PK and MArkov back together.

I assume you mean Gorges with Subby there. Gorges is having trouble now as a #3/#4 guy. As a #1D? In the Q maybe or Midget AAA. Not in the NHL. Bournival and Leblanc on the second line? Good heavens. If that lineup was actually iced, they'd be lucky to get 60 points.

re-sign. re-sign. NOT resign. resign is to resign from office. A player re-signs.

Leafs have won 6 in a row while les boys have been on a .500 fumble since sometime in early December. 500 hockey in the era of the three point game is TERRIBLE hockey. And if you've been watching the teams chasing the Habs lately, they're closing the gap while the Habs continue to flounder.
- Comment on Habs given day off Thursday after loss in Philly (2014-01-10 10:54:27)
Three problems I have with Hickey's article. Typically I agree with much if not all of what Hickey normally says, but not here. 1. We can rattle off probably a dozen or more examples of players doing similarly stupid things this year. Markov's 10 minute misconduct in Nashville. No repercussions there. DD's brainless play on the first goal in Philly. Take your next shift Davey! Therrien's own brainless bench penalty a few games ago. Did he admit to being misguided or immature? 2. The coach's job is to do everything within his power to win a game. Would pulling Budaj have made a difference? Probably not, they were awful. But it doesn't matter. You pull the goalie and hope that a miracle happens. Remember the Carolina game? Down 3-0 the canes looked like crap but within 2 minutes it was 3-3. Those things do happen. Teams do win games they had no business winning. 3. Its not ok for the team to not give a crap but its ok for the coach to give up? I have a big problem with that one. Its one thing for the team to play like they don't give a crap. Its a completely different ball of wax when the coach gives up.

Maybe you have valid points but did MT bench DD for his misguided lazy approach that caused the first goal? Did he bench Bourque for yet another crappy performance? Did he bench Markov for his selfish explosion that cost him a 10 minute misconduct in Nashville? Did MT bench himself for his two minute selfish penalty against Carolina? No Excuses? Bah. What a joke. No excuses seems to be aimed at only one player. Everyone else including the coach has all kinds of room for excuses. This on top of Bergevin's great response to how well the coaches worked with PK to get him on Team Canada. Give me a break. If they did such a great job, what gives with Emelin this year or Gorges? Where's the great coaching with those two? Why haven't any of our coaches been asked to work with Team Canada if they're that good? Didn't take Therrien long to wear out his welcome....... again.

So why not bench DD for his brain dead play on the first goal? I suppose that's ok because he's a team player. Sheesh. I was in the boat that thought Therrien was a good hire. No more. Anything PK has accomplished has been in spite of Therrien not because of him.
- Comment on Budaj gets start for Habs against Flyers (2014-01-08 15:02:23)
A big thanks to Bergevin and the coaching staff for making PK the man he is! http://www.nhl.com/ice/blogpost.htm?id=24887&navid=nhl:topheads Without them, PK Subban would probably be playing in the CHL or emptying garbage cans somewhere. "I came here two years ago, he was a healthy scratch," Bergevin said. "The coaching staff did a great job with him; he won the Norris [Trophy]. Now he's part of Team Canada for the Olympics. We've done the right things with P.K. and I'm proud that he'll be able to represent his country at the next Olympics." If I was Subban I'd take that little statement as a personal insult. The kid gets no credit from anyone, not even his own management staff. Why is there always that little hint of not wanting to give him full credit? Always there's a dig. PK didn't succeed, the coaching staff made him succeed. Therrien made him a better person. Totally classless thing to say on Bergevin's part and I'm rather surprised by it..

They're 2 years removed from being a last place team.I consider it a great achievement that they're battling for 1st place in the conference. To expect them to go from last to cup contender is a little on the unrealistic side. They've got some valuable building blocks and some good youngsters on the way. It takes time to build a contender we should all be patient and enjoy what success they do have. It is a slow process but I think they've made great strides.
