nice road win. Game ended up being closer than it should have been. I still don't like that moen was moved into briere's spot. to me, that indicated a defensive mindset that took over after a 3-0 lead. i don't understand why a team would move away from what is working in order to play a prevent defence.

coaching dictates a lot when it comes to offence. This team's style has changed since last year. First of all, MT's bench management is terrible. DD getting any PP time is idiotic until he actually starts to show that he can either score or set someone else up. When DD starts a PP he is paired up with Subban and Markov, effectively wasting our top point producers. That leaves the EGG line with bouillon and diaz, which effectively wastes our top point producing forwards. It makes no sense. This team used to be aggressive on the forecheck. We also used to be a quick transition team. For some reason this year, MT has them collapsing in our end to block every shot attempt. The problem with this is that when we manage to get the puck in our end, there is no more positioning at all. This makes it nearly impossible to breakout as a unit, hence no more fast transitions. Finally, when your top goal scorer only plays 11 minutes, you are coaching for a low scoring game to begin with. Eller played 16 minutes and galchenyuk only 14 minutes. bench management.

I don't know why people get worked up about being out hit, it is just an indication that we have the puck more than the opposition. I'd rather be a puck possession team and win games than a team that has to out hit opponents because we are dumping and chasing all night.

The "based purely on production" quote by therrien is obviously a joke. last time i checked, DD's production was even worse.

"It’s pretty simple; you perform well you get ice time. You don’t perform as well and your ice time goes down.” - Therrien on Saturday obviously it isn't something that therrien himself believes. going into the game, the kid line had 5 of the 7 goals scored by the habs. How are they rewarded, third line minutes. can you really be worried about icetime management for a line whose oldest player is 24, two games into the season. therrien is morphing into carbonneau, a peewee coach who cannot make in game adjustments and rolls four lines. when moen and white were on the ice with 14 minutes left in the third, down by two goals, therrien jumped the shark.

This post is either in complete ignorance or classic trolling. The habs were one of the highest scoring teams last year.

hopefully he gets some time on the power play. his lack of PP minutes cost him the calder trophy in my opinion.
