    NHL Draft Eligible
  1. I blame the guys on the ice but I also blame carbo for putting the wrong players on the ice and putting together lines that didn't work.
  2. I really like the sight of Beliveau and Orr holding each other. One question where was Fergie???? Was that Pierre Bouchard as Number 26?
  3. Carbo is supposed to have a game plan. What game plan did he have? The habs were outshot and outplayed in the first period. They had no system. The Leafs came out with a strategy. They forechecked, their defence chipped in. What was the habs system? Tonight was not the first night Begin has taken stupid penalties. Carbo relied on the likes of Begin and Dandenault not because they were playing great but because they were french canadians. Who should have been benched in the third period Begin for that stupid reckless play or Kovalev?
  4. I completely agree with point number one. Carbo was hired as a motivator. I sensed that in the first part of the year. Then he started developing this ego problem. All I ever got from him was this idiotic smile everytime the habs were penalized either justly or unjustly. Then came the remark to the press he and Muller couldnt put on the skates. At the time the habs were in 4th place and he told them they were crap. Then he broke up the Koivu Higgins Ryder line. Then he benched Perezhogin the best +- on the team. Then he put the dynamic duo of Dandenault and Bouillon together and benched Ninimaa. Once Begin returned he played on every line. I don't even want to discuss the Samsonov disaster which Carbo holds a major responsibility for. As well, I think Kovalev was right- Carbo favours french canadians players- skilled or unskilled. The big problem Montreal has is defensively. They need a defenceman coach. Even Souray and Markov had big defensive lapses. They need a tactician that can let them play the trap when needed like tonight. I don't know what Muller and Jarvis do? neither one ever played defence in the NHL.
  5. Thank you Mr Carbonneau. It's too bad the penalties ruined the game. However, in even strength Paul Maurice totally outcoached Carbo, the Leafs had a system in the first period canadians had none. Thanks to great individual play by Ryder the Canadians came back. However Carbo was clueless.His insistence on relying on players like Begin and Latendresse and Dandenault to go to war for him cost him the season. Great move having Kovalev play with young blood like Lapierre and Latandresse. They may turn out to be decent NHL'ers in 3-4 years not now. The Crystal wall shattered. Carbo destroyed this team's confidence at Xmas and he never let go.
  6. What saddens me is the sight of the last great dynasty of the habs. If only they could become young again. Who was Number 20? Cam Connors?
  7. I also wish him well. His speed could be a determining factor. However, I don't know if he would be a better fit on the Bonk line where he played most of the year.
  8. I think both. The Leafs have big forwards and Ninimaa is a big body
  9. Not sure what to think. I think perez will bring fresh legs. However I dont know if the chemistry will be there. I sure hope so.
  10. It's now or never as the Elvis song goes. I think a few careers are on the line tonight including Kovalev Koivu and maybe whether Souray stays in Montreal.
  11. a 9 goal scorer since Carbo treated him like crap all year and never played him on the powerplay Jeff O 'Neill has been a bust since joining the Leafs. He has nothing to brag about, and since he left the Hurricanes they won a Cup without him. What you are saying is essentialy what i am saying. Why has Sammy been a bust in Montreal? I think we are blaming the victim of Carbo's ego
  12. Let's get real dirty harry. No one took him because of his salary. Frankly from what I saw of the likes of Latandresse last night I think Sammy would be a vast improvement. Sammy won't be playing with the Habs next year and when he starts playing great with another team I hope everyone will question what happened in Montreal. I don't think you have to look further then Carbo. If the Habs don't make the playoffs Carbo won't last long next year.
  13. I'll take a loud mouth 50 goal scorer to a saint 10 goal scorer any day
  14. I wouldnt mind him being sent to Hamilton. I would be interested to see if he plays real well. If he does then who was to blame for his lack of productivity in MONTREAL?
