  1. why can't they get a guy in front of the net on the PP?
  2. Harry Neale is so dumb. Apparently, Mtl only got 12 shots against buffalo the other night, leading to another shutout for Hasek.... Moron
  3. Funny how that was the fastest I have seen Koivu skate in weeks, Kovalev kept up as well, and they score.... Speed kills, use it!

  5. I sure hope so. The first and second lines have to start scoring soon, or it won't matter who is in net.
  6. Well, I am not a total moron, ribs and pleks are now on the 2nd line together. I also like that because Pleks can take the draws.
  7. I would change the lines right now. I would put Begin back to center the fourth line, move Ribs up to center the 2nd, and put Pleks on his wing. Right now Ribs is useless and just makes the 4th line less tough.
  8. Facts are facts. Ribs has way more points then Pleks. The habs offense is really bad now and Pleks is on the 2nd line, getting a ton of time. I like him, but I have not seen him doing much. I also don't think Pleks is going to be a number 2 center in this league. Personally, I think he is going to take Bonk's job. If Ribs gets replaced (and I agree he probably will), I hope it is for a much more proven, offensive player.
  9. As much as Ribs has struggled and took much of the blame when Koivu and Kovalev were hurt, I think it is worth noting that we have gone from Bad... to worse since he was moved to the fourth line. I think it is time to put him back on the 2nd line and try to get him going again. He does provide offense (he is still in the top 4 on the team in points) and his line always gets shots, even when they suck.. I would put him back and tell the defense and Theo that they have to cover for any defensive lapse. They simplely have to generate more offense.
  10. Buff 5 - Tor 4.... Toronto is putting up a fight.
  11. Seriously, I am starting to miss Dags. At least he would be shooting.... LOL
  12. They are just not skating. I realize they played last night, but how many times have they been outskated by the team that played the night before. I do wonder if these guys have a conditioning problem. And there is the complementary 5-3 we always spot teams. About to be 3-0... Yup... thanks for failing to clear the puck Koivu...
  13. When is gainey going to cut the first line's icetime? They need to wake up. The sad part is that Zed looks like he is skating to night, but Kovalev is floating around with zero energy and Koivu is only slightly better. Much like Theo, this team is going no where with the first line playing that poorly.
  14. While Zed sucks lately and Kovalev is missing in action, Koivu has been no better. He has had Ryder on his line for a few games and didn't look any better. Another thing is that excuse is never accepted for Ribs, who a month or so ago was struggling with Dags/Higgins/Ryder who were not finishing too many plays. Koivu has looked terrible lately. No speed, no finesse, no shot. He looks disinterested, perhaps depressed. I don't know what is wrong with him, but as the Captain, he needs to crank it up and pull his line out of the slump. Lately he has only shown up briefly in the end of games. His goal off the toe was about as much offense as he has put out lately, which is not enough. This is a guy who should be able to go down the ice on his own and get a scoring chance. Perhaps he shouldn't be scratched, but demoted to the fourth line for a game might send a message.
  15. Woot.... wait a minute, that was not Bulis...... Nice goal by Begin. The character guys are stepping up. Maybe the first two lines might start scoring a bit....
  16. When BTH comes back, we should all act like it never happened... LOL
  17. The end of the world is here.... Four goals for Bulis... Wow... nice game. Four shots, four goals, about 8 minutes of playing time.... Guess we better bench him.....
  18. Bulis... hat trick... Bulis is certainly having a great game. I guess the monkey is off his back now!
  19. Team seems slow still. I remember in the old NHL this team beating Philly all the time by out skating them. I thought we had a faster team this year, but we don't win too many races. Was Sundstrom not just hooked? No call... blah.
  20. YEah, now Bulis has 10 goals this year.... Let's not get too excited. I treat him like Begin and Higgins. 10 -15 goals is good from them, but that won't make them number one line players.
  21. 1.25 with Kovalev at 1.3 or greater. Koivu is currently 37th in the league for points from a center. (Ribs is 46th) Sure, he has missed some games, but that needs to be factored in. In PPG, he is still not in the top 10. I just don't think Koivu is a top ten center in this league anymore. I would like to see the Habs get a true number one center who is a scoring machine! That doesn't mean Koivu goes, just that he moves to the 2nd line. I also feel that Koivu is just not reliable health wise. I expect him to play about 60 games a year so a point per game is 60 points on the season. There are going to be guys getting that many Goals! I love Koivu, but I am trying to be realistic. Contending teams have better top players then Koivu and Kovalev. (or at least, how they are playing).
