I'll keep sitting on my own island while pumping Streit's tires but based on last year's stats Streit averaged more points per game than Petry, and all our other current defenseman outside of Weber.

 

I expect him to at least be useful on the power play if given a chance. It does look like Claude agrees with most though and isn't utilizing him very much. I don't like the other three defensemen but I guess there's just as much of an argument for Gelinas on the power play as well.

 

Streit also barely played for a Pittsburgh team decimated by injury, and it certainly looked like his play deteriorated as the season went on. It is likely he will either deteriorate even quicker this season, if not start at that diminished return. 

 

I'd be more excited for Streit as a #6-7 defensemen if the Habs didn't already have three guys playing down to the role.

2 goals or less again. 

 

Can they hit the magic 3 goal mark this pre season. 

 

I doubt it

Preseason games don't matter, but you'd think that when playing against other teams also barely giving a shit that you could win one even by accident, y'know?

It will be a very long year. 

 

It isn't just preseason. They don't have much talent

Holland had a good chance to score on a breakaway but couldn't put it home.  Despite that, I think he has helped his chances for a roster spot tonight; he has been a lot more noticeable than Mitchell out there.

The #1 PP unit isn't scoring tonight but this is by far the best any Montreal PP unit has looked in the preseason.

Toronto back up goalie taking Montreal to the wood shed.

Watching the sportscast after the game basically laughing at Montreal unable to score more than two goals. Unable to win against an AHL lineup.

Well, Drouin and Galchenyuk will be fun to watch. 

 

25 goals allowed in 6 games... the defense is an actual dumpster fire.

On the plus side it should light a fire under Bergevins ass to trade for help.

 

On the negative side....see previous statement

Drouin was awesome tonight, really liked Mete's game again.

 

I am not going to fall into the trap of getting all worked up about pre-season, we have not iced anything close to our game 1 line up yet. And if Colorado taught me anything last season, its that pre-season records literally don't mean a damn thing.

Allowed 16 more goals than they've scored.

Colorado won all of their games while the Habs have lost all their games. All I will say is that they haven't wanted to go winless so far, that's for sure.

 

It's not really about the wins and losses anyway.

Weber-Mete

Petry-Alzner

Benn-Jerabek

Strait-Schlemko

I assume it must be down to these 8 and Morrow, Davidson and Gelinas should be gone.

Mitchell must be darn close to being cut also?

Other than to see the team on the ice, I haven't watched more than, say 2 minutes of any of the games combined. I'll be concerned if this is how they start the season, but otherwise, nothin' to see here. Hopefully the coaching staff has been able to get in some good player evals.

I think its an excellent strategy to get most of the goals scored against us in the preseason and save all our goal scoring for the real deal! 

 

Brilliant!  :P

 

I'm holding my head high. ( A my neck is stiff..))

Man I have a bad feeling we are going to give up a lot of breakaways this year with our slow dcore.

Benn has looked like Benn. I like how one person put it. He turned back into a pumpkin.

I don't expect anything from. I just know how absolutely terrible he looked in the playoffs.

Lets remember that last night the Weber-Mete pairing looked fine. 

 

We might have had a group where only Weber is in the starting lineup opening night. 

 

For all this talk that this was the Leafs "B" team last night, our defence was 

 

Our #1 guy

A 19 year old, who might make the team and might not. 

4 guys competing for the #6 spot at best. 

 

Schlemko, Petry, Benn, Alzner all didn't play last night.

Job description for veterans playing in the preseason:

 

1 - Don't get hurt

2 - Don't get hurt

3 - Don't get hurt

 

You may have noticed that there's no mention of trying to win.
