I do not see the concern with Markov playing those minutes...he is in much better shape this year than last...his knees are getting better over time yet he is getting older. He will lose a step but in a sense will gain one until he is back to where he should be. He is a guy who takes great pride in his conditioning. I am not concerned and view it as a postiive...and as the season goes on and the other dmen are able to take on more minutes then fine but until then I see very game as the same during the reg season...they are all must wins.His icetime is also being impacted byt he huge number of penalties being called in Habs games....he plays both special teams

IT was a 2 on 2 with back pressure...Ememlina nd PLeks both went to the middel and let sedin wal in....Worst case there the D take the 2 on 2 and there is no goal. Why they both wnet to the middle is a mystery...but as you said Pleks took the erisk in theother end...but to me that should have bean something Emelin read knowing that PLeks did nothave the speed to catch sedin and he should have taken him unless they are directed differently.

I had no isssue witht eh Gilbert pick....he was first to the space IMO so no issues with that...he did not make the contact....I thoguth those were called like a cahrge in basketball...first tot eh space gets it. If that is intereference then everyt ime a dman steps intot eh way of a forecheck to protect his partner tht could be perceived as a pick. If Gilbert had skated into the Canuck then fine...but he turned sharply and in my opinion was entitled to the space. A pick where a player initiates the contact and goes into someone else's space I have issue with....I have no idea if that is how they call it but that is how I thought they did anyway. Bsically I thougth if you physically interfered tehn it is a pick but if you are first into a space and then the other palyer runs into you then I thougth they let that go.

HE also madea curious decision ont eh winning oal in OT...Pleks did not have the energy to pick up Sedin and Ememlin should have taken and PLeks was going to the high slot

Um we are watching and complaining aobut the professional sport...if we were this upset about our own men's league team we may have issues...but expecting professionalism from the pros with their multi million dollar salaries you help to support is quite ok.

Re the Pp....there were tons of opportuniteies for the corss seampass but they are all hesitating.....Dd also turned down too many shots...get him off of there. He is a guy who can create when something out of nothing but when the opening is already there he is still trying to create...like he can;t accept that somehow there is already space and he should shoot. He had some of the best opportunities of the game and never even attempted a shot.

This has been the trend lately....homer commentators trying to sway public perception ....they see it work for the LEafs and Bruisn so why not? I honestly think that sometimes it is the media and the rection that is contributing to the penalties dished out for suspensions. IF an incident gets enough airtime and enough people are disgusted with it it seems it is treated worse. For instance the Kreider hit got overshadowed by the Moore hit and was able to be buried. The fact it was Burrows who has a reputation for being a little on the dirty side made me think you would hear more about it...but for the hundreds of thousand of viewers they tried to sluff it off when it was not only late but was high and resuklted in a fai chunk of missed time and a goal? was bizarre....and they whined about Gallagher goal where he was corsscehcked into Miller by other player...at least ref saw that he did not enter that space on his own.

I view it as a positive....in professional sport complacency is unacceptable. In fact I woudl go as far as to say to the players and the coaches their record while nice is not how they measure their successes....especially during the season. Playoffs are another story. During the season each player wishes to be playing a mentally sharp, committed game where they are offering up maximum effort and playing the game the correct way. Coaches wish to see their systems correctly implemented , a team first mentality and a no passengers apporach. From their perspective the sum has to be greater than the parts...right now that is not necessarily happening. It seems that at this point a few plays or players here and there are coming though and I can see where they are not satisfied with their play. I have not yet seen a game with a complete team effort where everyone is on for 3 periods yet...and whe we do see that it just may shock us into realizing how good this team can be....right now they are pretty good...but nowhere near what they can and should be based on what we are seeing.
