- Comment on Liveblog: Canadiens eke one out over lowly Leafs (2015-02-14 23:07:16)
Wow, what a week, beat lowly Philly in OT, lose to one of the worst teams in NHL history after leading 2-0 and then eke out a win in a shoot out against a team that can't win in practice. This is a Habs team that took a week off. I sure hope it helps them in the playoffs, because right now this looks like a one and done team. No, zero, nada mental fortitude. MB it's time to shake things up. There is a desperate need to move a few too complacent parts.

Watched the Sens trash a truly pathetic Oilers team. I still cannot fathom how the Habs lost to that bunch. Lousy goaltending, even worse defence. Geez, they lost to both Toronto and Ottawa badly in the same week. Hamilton should be able to take them. It's hard to view this version of the Habs with any confidence when they get beat by teams like Edmonton. Watching the Oilers though, one thing is obvious, they are awful on D. Both of the "generational" talents available in the next draft are forwards. Presuming for a second that the Oilers end up with the #1 or #2 overall pick, what would it be worth to trade up to get it. Would one of the Habs top 4 D, plus Tinordi plus their #1 pick do it? Is that the kind of move that MB should be looking at?

Zero effort or intensity, a belief that simply showing up and putting on jerseys is enough. This team refuses to learn that they are not good enough to play at 3/4 or 1/2 speed.

I'd make'em skate till they puked tomorrow morning. Another disgusting lacklustre effort.

Because the lads think they don't have to put in much of an effort against those teams. Put mildly, they channel the Leafs attitude and intensity.

So badly hurt was Tinordi?

Why can't this team score and what can be done about it?

By the way, when is Galchenyuk going to burst into the elite group of league forwards in terms of production, Yes, he makes lots of sweet plays, but they don't seem to add up to anything. So when do we think that will start to happen?

How dreadful is that. Do we have a forward that can score a goal on an empty net? SWEPT by one of the worst teams in hockey history. This version of the Habs is not bound to be recorded among the better versions of this storied franchise.
