This is Deja Vu all over again. Too many passengers not enough drivers. The core of this team is the young line accompanied by Subban, Price, Tinordi, Patches, Emilin, and that is about it. The rest are all interchangeable parts. The only veterens I would keep would be Plek's Markov and Prust, the rest could leave tomorrow and I would not shed a tear. Looks like us folks that live in the west can get ready for another swoon through BC and Alta. That was a real disappointing effort from the team last night. yuks!!

The Habs are showing less life than road kill on a Texas highway.

This team makes it absolutely impossible for a Habs fan that resides in Calgary!!

Should have gone to Harvard at least he would have an education to fall back on if this experiment fails.

no thank you Vinnie. The Habs need to get someone that is tough in the mold of Luch in Boston. Vinnie is past his expiration date as a dominant force. It is time for the youth to shine, and to get bigger and tougher. Four years ago I would have welcomed with open arms, today no thank you.

Yes the Habs could use a couple more 6'2" forwards with touch but so can most teams. Put in Emilin, Eller and your team is automatically bigge, both are 6'2. Add a tougher D'man to replace Diaz, then you have a big D as you now add in a growing Tinordi . What you need is a fourth line anchored by Prust and possibly White with a player like Tim Jackman 6'2" 225 and cheap from Calgary and your team now cannot be outgooned by Ottawa as teams will be spending their days trying to avoid these three. You don't need to fight but you must not be out muscled. As for last nights game, 4 mistake by refs is tolerable, but four a blatant knee on Gally, two really bad icing calls and a so/so goal and you have to wonder. The worst werethe icings as they stopped play moved it 205 feet and allowed the Sens to set up.

Whoever wins the last game wins the series.

Question for anybody out there. What does PJ Stock ( a simple man) have against PK Subban? Seems like he uses HNIC to bash the guy.

Objectivity is often lost by fans after games like this. Hockey is a team game and the team, not just Price or DD or ..... was not up to par, the team played really sh***y. After Friday nights game people were welcoming Price like the new King, by last night he was again seen as the court jester. Saturday Boone was joyous last night he was throwing them off the bus. He is the same guy that said the habs were playing with house money on HIO video. So by next game it may be Nirvana or it may be Hades but all I know is MB and others are not going to let their star and future star players, 11, 27, 76 be gooned by the likes of Neil next year. I remember back in 1976 playoffs when Bowman started Rick Chartraw, Robinson, Bouchard and a couple of others for the opening match with the Flyers, the Flyers lost 4 straight. You don't have to goon, just let the other team know that this will happen if you lay a finger on Lafleur, Lemaire or Shutt. This is what the Habs currently do not have a threat.

Mr Boone was on PK for " picking his spots". Well MR. B they didn't call the first ccheck to PK's head, he took it like a team player but by the second of third bit of goonery on him, he lost it. he has more patience than I have, but picking his spots is wrong. if he isn't willing to drop a punk that does that, then it is open season on him.
