    Petry is a second pair defenceman, paid like a second pair defenceman, who performs like a second pair defenceman (doesn't have the consistency to be a number 1). \ He is what he is. He has some bad plays, but thats why he is not a #1. and makes 5.75 instead of 8.5

    Yes they can. If they can play 650 outside of a small stretch that got Therrien fired last year, there is No reason to believe that this isn't the "bad stretch" this year. They have just given themselves no room for another slump.
  4. The Team.....

    Patches playeda darn good game after making those comments. I dont see that "he didnt throw himself into the fire" I also dont see a team that gets 30 shots in a period as being a team of players that has dialed out. The lossesare frustrating.. but that doesnt make a narrative that the team js giving no effort true.
  5. The Team.....

    I think this roster is good enough to be a playoff team... even win the division. I have no confidence in MB to get it to the next level
  6. HABS @ ANAHEIM DUCKS OCTOBER 20TH @ 10 PM EST

    One good period in seven games? Have you been watching the same games i have? Have you been watching the same games the statisticians have? As for being a team with poor goaltending? Yes price has played poorly so far. Do you expect that will comtinue indefinitely? Do you think price is going to continue as one of the leagues worst.?
  7. HABS @ ANAHEIM DUCKS OCTOBER 20TH @ 10 PM EST

    The points thrown away are concerning. That said didnt the team have a stretch of being like 1-6-1 or something very similar before therrien was fired last year. There is no room for error now. They have dug a hole where they cant have a second streak like this over the course of the season. But if thats the swoon out of the way....

    I mean you want to sum up the bounces in the game....Kevin Bieksa breaks his stick, and the puck skids sideways and it sets up montour for a perfect one-timer into an open net. Thats theluck this team has right now. Bieksa breaks his stick and the puck hops in such a way that its the best pass he's made in five years.

    on the season XG is over 27... they have 13 gf
  10. HABS @ ANAHEIM DUCKS OCTOBER 20TH @ 10 PM EST

    You want to talk shot quality... its factored into xpected goals Tonight... based on quality.... xG was 5.16 - 3.72 in favor of montreal.
  11. HABS @ ANAHEIM DUCKS OCTOBER 20TH @ 10 PM EST

    To the point where they are at less than half the level of the worst team in NHL history. No, thats not the explaination here. I'm not buying that this team has half the talent of the worst team in NHL history. And takes far worse shots than them. Sorry that makes no sense. Especially when you look at shot location charts and heatmaps and you see that they are an average NHL team in shot location... and then you look at basically the same roster and you realize that they have been middle of the pack every year for 5 years now. Rationalizing that this is the real team, and not some weird aberration of unlucky shooting in a small sample size just doesn't match with the facts. This team wasn't the greatest team of all time when they were 10-0-1 last year with a 110 PDO They aren't the worst team of all time with a slow start this year with a 90.9 PDO. Things evened out last year with a long midseason slump that kept the club from being a 120+ point club.... somehow i don't think this is an 85 points and below club either. And Jeez, people are angry.... constant downvotes....
  12. HABS @ ANAHEIM DUCKS OCTOBER 20TH @ 10 PM EST

    Lacks talent? To the point that there shooting percentage is less than 1/2 of the worst team in NHL history??? I don't buy that. This has gone past the point of ridiculous.
  13. HABS @ ANAHEIM DUCKS OCTOBER 20TH @ 10 PM EST

    He shattered his stick on the post after the 6th.
  14. Bergevin......

    Benn has been warranted this year. Petry, it is irrational hate IMO.
  15. HABS @ ANAHEIM DUCKS OCTOBER 20TH @ 10 PM EST

    30 shots in a period is officially a team record... previous is 27. credit Marc Godin.
  16. Bergevin......

    Fun with +/- The entire team was shit the last ten minutes. He was the team's best defenceman through the first 50 of that game... yes he got caught on late goals when the Habs were losing and trying to make something happen... i don't blame a d for extra pinches in the last 10 minutes when his team is desperate to tie the game. Its okay, its not like you have been anti-Petry before...
  17. Bergevin......

    1) I have an idea, there is one poster here who has been downvoting me 2-3 times per day every day since i called him out. What a pathetic and petty little man. But honestly I don't give a shit about my number, I only called him out cause he downvoted everyone in that thread, including you. 2) The third pair has been a disaster. The only one who has looked decent on that pair is Davidson.
  18. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Not unless they are exploring a move of a guy like OEL (UFA after 2018-19 season), but Habs dont even have the assets to make that move.

    I don't expect the players to be robots. I expect that a little extra fabric on a jersey, doesn't change who a person is. Some people are natural leaders, some people are natural followers. Price and Weber are natural leaders. The fact they have no letter and an A respectively doesn't take away from the fact that they are leaders on the team, and does not make it any less likely for teammates to follow them, to take their words to heart, to lean on them and learn from them. The ceremonial aspect of the piece of fabric doesn't change the person. It doesn't give someone traits they didn't have before... losing it doesn't take away traits they had previously either. And sure you might have a few days of emotion, but i don't expect it to have long term effects.
  20. HABS @ ANAHEIM DUCKS OCTOBER 20TH @ 10 PM EST

    Two things. Hudon - Plekanec - Lehkonen was a line that never should have been broken up. Put it back together, instead of having Hemsky there.
  21. HABS @ KINGS, OCT 18

    In this case, twist my words all you want.... strip it and it makes no difference... leave it on and it makes no difference. As fans we overanalyze where the letter is. Shea Weber is no less of a leader with an A on his sweater instead of the C. He's still the same person, still has the same charisma and players still respect him the same way, C or Not. Max has always been a streaky scorer, was a streaky scorer with the A, is streaky as a C, and will be streaky without it. He still does the same things as a leader now that he did before. Carey Price has no letter, cannot officially have a letter per NHL rules, and is still the number 1 leader of this team ahead of both Max and Weber. Leaders either have it internally or they don't. Letters don't change that. Leaders also lead, whether they have a letter or not, and the followers follow whether they have a letter or not. All of this C business is too much analysis for an issue that really doesn't effect the play on the ice. Max has to get off more shots to start scoring again, and letter or not, thats the answer.
