  1. I guess my fellow friends in here are frustrated. Hmmm? Yeah, I haven't been posting a lot. The first 10 games I'm surprised I didn't set fire to my TV! Oh well. In short, this team needs to "hang on". That's the simplest way to put it. We'll be holding our breath for at least another month. You get what you get.

    If we can survive - we can turn the corner. Jacques Martin isn't going away and no more Kaberle's are likely to beam into Habsworld. I think us fans need to chill. However, to those that can't, I can relate. Talking me in to acceptance in October would have been a waste of key strokes.

  2. What's the Canadiens Express? Is that on RDS. I do have RDS.

    It's on tonight at 9:30 ET on RDS. So it's likely on RDS at 7:30 Calgary time.

    And, I'm just saying overall he looked solid. On 2 plays left alone on partial breakaways he was worrisome but I expected far more disaster than what came of it. He recovered pretty well.

    I just hope he fits with the Habs like he did with the Leafs. We'll see

  3. It`s too bad for Brodeur. He`s lost his game. Maybe he can get it back but I doubt it. His numbers and performance weren`t up to his own standards last year either. In the one game he got get pumped up and did well to rise to the old occasion he unfortunately runs into the push back factor- Carey Price. NEUTRALIZED!

    Marty doesn`t even own the Leafs anymore. Who does he own now?

  4. I posted on HF last night:

    This could be an awesome trade. If you factor in his play in Toronto & disregard his play since being traded twice, this may turn out OK. It's not easy getting traded to Boston. He didn't play well. Cam Neely nearly exploded laff.gif

    Then Kaberle signs in Carolina. I remember at the time wondering where Carolina was going with this. I thought, À totally bad fit - franchise versus player compatibility.`

    With Montreal it MIGHT be different. (Praying) I'm not saying he's going to be a superstar because that would be silly. However, there's a good chance that he'll contribute, play better defensively & find a home! Let's all hope he finds a home.

    On the downside, Spacek without Hamrlik & his injury status this year have made me wonder if he wasn't already obsolete. If Kaberle doesn't work out then it's time for the press box. The cap situation is troublesome. Kaberle's cap hit is $167,000 more than Spacek's was so not much was added to the cap this year. Kaberle is signed for 2 more years at 4 million & $4.5 in 2013/14. Better get used to him. Hopefully he's worth it! (Praying)

    Campoli, Subban, Kaberle, Weber & Diaz at least give us a far more rounded out D core for major short term solutions for the point shot & the powerplay.

    He he, I might not have been off by much at all in my post. It`ll be sweet since every Leaf, Bruin & every other sort of troll & idiot could not or would not admit any upside If Kaberle holds up this will be funny. I guarantee Leaf fans will be far more public on how this is bad for the Habs. Privately they`ll be seething hahaha

  5. The players are better than the coach. I place a lot of blame on Martin. I watched the exhibition games and I've watched all the regular season games. A trend I have seen repeated is our inability to successfully chase on a dump and chase. Or our forwards are being isolated to the outside when trying to cross the blueline. No puck possession or recovery when attacking is a recipe for disaster. So, the strategy must change. Another idea would be to work on the many issues they have and have failed to identify in practice.

    Is Martin currently adjusting his strategy?

    Is Martin working on these blatantly obvious problems in his practices?

    Just a thought.

  6. Why is Subban with Emelin? Martin said they'd win more games than lose if they played the way they did against Buffalo. Now he's changing D pairings. Why?

    Habs seem goofy tonight. I don't see much hunger. I noticed many plays where we backed off and protected the puck when there was no Pittsburgh pressure on the puck.

    If there's magic in the Montreal Canadiens it'd better show up soon. In spite of injuries the youth call ups should be good enough to rise to the occasion if there's enough veteran support. Well, there is enough! And if this roster cannot snap out of this then something else is very wrong.

    Hopefully this rant is all tripe and I eat crow at the end of the night. But make no mistake. Ol' AC is growing impatient.
