Does anyone think that Carbo might be the problem in montreal?
I know it’s only Carbo’s first season, but he’s made a lot of mistakes this year. His latest was benching Kovalev during most of the 3rd period of the leafs game. He barely played Kovalev during the powerplays, even though he’s awesome in the powerplay. He also did something when he touched the puck, unfortunately his linemates couldn’t do much.
The other issue I have with Carbo is putting Huet in nets, it’s a matter of principle, Halak got you there, so stick with him, don’t go with some guy who’s played 1 period in 2 months! Besides it’s not like the Rangers loss was Halak’s fault, no one really showed up to that game. And finally I’ll conclude with this, the team started the season off great, a lot of it was the momentum carried over from Gainey’s masterful job at coaching last year, but then when the slump hit, Carbo couldn’t manage it, if he wasn’t a first year coach he would’ve fired a few months ago. The team he had was good enough to make the playoffs, he just mismanaged it. Does anyone else agree? It’s amazing how much respect this guy has in town, cause I don’t ever hear anyone blaming him, instead they like to blame the non french people (Kovalev, Koivu, even Gainey..)
