Sooo all the Carey Price isn't a real number 1 goalie and all that bla bla...you guys still there? He just has the best save % of all number 1 goalies in the league...on a team that isn't that good. Stolen games? Several. But of course, if he goes on a bad stretch watch all these "goalie gurus" who never put a pair of goalie pads on come out and give their "educated" opinion. Dorks.

I know Plekanec and Markov are good and everything but I don't think this team will be a cup contender while those two are still good enough, so why not trade one (if not both). They both have good value, especially Plekanec who is signed for the next few years. I dunno, I'm just thinking towards the future. I think the habs are missing at least one scoring winger going forward. Hey and who was it here that told me they would take Leblanc over Kreider? Pfff, not only is Kreider better he's 6'3 225, at the very least he becomes a good 3rd liner, can't say the same for Leblanc.

It really pisses me off how the french media is having such an issue with the DD criticism. Nobody ever has an issue bashing Price, Subban, Plekanec and remember Gomez!? But this guy (DD) has Gomez-like numbers and we can't make fun of him/complain about him? Do these people honestly believe that they are at all objective? Ever? I'd love to comment on some stuff on RDS's website, too bad my written french isn't good enough!

Ya, maybe we should have taken the leap and paid the price for a guy like Bobby Ryan. You can't just build through the draft, especially if you don't have a 1st overall pick to build around like Chicago did. Sure they drafted well, but it helped to have Kane and Toews at the centre of it all! Galchenyuk is gonna be good but he's a passer and not much of a goal scorer. If this team doesn't have the balls to make a trade and get some offense it will never be good enough. They have a goaltender and a lot of young promising Dmen but not much in terms of real goal scorers. BTW, check Danny Kristo's stats in the AHL...way better than anyone on the bulldogs. Can't just count on Pacioretty and Gallagher to score. Pacioretty is streaky and if all of your hopes rely on a 5'9 guy who gets run over by guys all the time...troubles brewin...

I can't stand the coach and even Bergevin is losing my confidence. This is what happens when you choose form a smaller talent pool then the other 29 teams. Complete crap, I can't believe this is what we get for being such high paying suckers of fans. My generation has never seen a good habs team, we saw Roy leave right as we started really getting into hockey, and for what? For some looney toon coach? I'm so angry right now.

I have a feeling Therrien doesn't trust Subban, which concerns me because Subban is a star and I hope Therrien doesn't over-exaggerate the "tough love" and drive him away too much. Also, fearless prediction: One bad game by Price and all the haters will come out with the usual...he never steals us a game. He never makes the big saves. He never this never that...all the good will be forgotten. Pathetic. Everyone will compare him to Quick and Lundqvist and all the other "top" goalies...who right now...aren't so hot. But when other top goalies have struggles, no one says anything. In fact, even in Price's not so great season last year, he had a better save % than Quick. Quick didn't have a great year either...my point is these things happen, and people need to remember that when things don't always go this well (its inevitable that there will be tough games for Price) people need to "chill!" And before people pull out the "quick won a cup.." so Rinne and Lundqvist who haven't won anything... suck? Winning a cup is a team thing. The flyers got to the cup finals in 2010 with a bunch of backups. Their team was really good, good enough to (almost) make up for how bad their goalies were. Habs have a goalie, its time to complete the team around him. Until the next time I have to come out and defend Price...see ya!

Eller was right tho...the oilers are a terribly unorganized team that is rather easy to play against when you play well enough. Unfortunately, the habs only played well for 20 minutes. I'd still be very worried if I was an oilers fan.

So I was looking at the bulldogs website, and noticed that Christian Thomas is not listed on the team...am I missing something?

I understand Bergevin wanted to get off on the right foot with the media and fanbase in montreal but enough is enough. Its obvious, that signing players due to them being hometown boys is a stupid idea. Too bad the french media and fans don't realize it, but as long as Bergevin does i'll be relieved. We have not one but two cases of overpaid somewhat useless hometown boys on this team. I'll never get over how the french media and fans actually tried to credit pacioretty and cole's success to desharnais instead of the other way around. Talk about a non-objective, homer mentality.
