  1. They started that way, but in the 2nd ribs moved back to the second line and begin moved back to the 4th line. Both lines looked better after that.
  2. Now that is what I have been looking for from Koivu. Leadership. Played hard tonight, drove the net, and everyone looked better. I am still miffed at the non-call that let the leaf's tie it. I don't think Theo was set for that one. Overally, Theo played way way way better tonight. He made some key saves and looked more confident. Even that 5-3 he made a few huge ones before they scored.
  3. What BS... they call everything on the habs and let the Leafs back in on a non-call... Why can't the Habs ever get decent refs when they play TO?
  4. why can't they get a guy in front of the net on the PP?
  5. Harry Neale is so dumb. Apparently, Mtl only got 12 shots against buffalo the other night, leading to another shutout for Hasek.... Moron
  6. 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!

  8. I sure hope so. The first and second lines have to start scoring soon, or it won't matter who is in net.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Buff 5 - Tor 4.... Toronto is putting up a fight.
  14. Seriously, I am starting to miss Dags. At least he would be shooting.... LOL
  15. 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...
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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....
  19. When BTH comes back, we should all act like it never happened... LOL
  20. 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.....
  21. Bulis... hat trick... Bulis is certainly having a great game. I guess the monkey is off his back now!
