Category Archives: Montreal Canadiens
Ok so we have one of the best powerplays and one of the best penalty killing, but 5 on 5 we SUCK. Gainey can’t wait no longer he has to make a move. Samsonov is a big bust, he works hard but nothing to show for it. Ryder, a proven 30 goal scorer isin’t playing well. Plekanec is a hard worker but he’s no 2nd line center.
We have alot of assets we can move. Too many players that all do the same thing. Plekanec, Samsonov, Perezoghin, Kostisyn, Grabovski. That’s 5 players who do the same thing, and they are all very small.
I like are defence, but we won’t be able to sign are 3 ufa’s. Everyone says that they think we should move Souray, but I think we should move Rivet. He makes to much money for what he gives. There are plenty of teams out there that are looking for a solid stay at home D-man.
This is an online petition condeming the CBC for there lack of Montreal Canadiens games. Montreal only has 17 games that will be shown on the CBC this year, with 4 or 5 of them against Toronto, a few others against the western teams, and the rest only regional viewers from quebec have the right to watch.
After watching every Habs game so far this year, I know Guy can not be happy with his line up and hopefully is asking Bob to change it. Watching Samsonov do nothing game after game after game is pissing me off and hopefully Guy also. Two teams that I think we could swing deals with are St.Louis and Vancouver. With Legace out and Tkachuk probably walking at the end of the season offer Samsonov, Aebischer, Murray and maybe throw in a guy like J. Gleed for Tkachuk and J. Mayers.
I really like the Habs this season. They’re playing well and seem to be all on the same page. Aside from a bit of inconsistent play, I only have one complaint:
Now listen. 30 goals a season is relatively good, and Ryder’s accomplished that for Montreal, and that’s good. I’m a Montreal, and Atlanta fan. The only player which I hate on Montreal is Michael Ryder, and why?
What’s up with the Canadiens. The last 8 games for sure, they’ve allowed over 35 shots per game. We can’t expect to win if we’re going to give up that many shots.
Kostitsyn has been sent back to the minors, which means Garth Murray will probably be back in the lineup with Perezhogin moving back to the 2nd line, Begin back to the 3rd line and Murray landing back on the fourth line.
It appears the Huet has claimed the #1 job in the Habs goal crease. After last nights impressive outing against Atlanta combined with his last four starts he has a save percentage of .931!
According to TSN.ca, Andrei Kostitsyn has been recalled from the Montreal’s AHL team, the Hamilton Bulldogs. If any of you remember the rookie camp of the Habs, the big story was which rookie would crack the lineup: Latendresse or Kostitsyn. While we all now know the outcome of that, both players played extremely well in pre-season (yes, I know they mean nothing) and showed promise of being able to perform in the NHL.
According to RDS.ca, rookie Guillaume Latendresse will be playing in the 1st during the game against the Oilers while Hab’s best scorer so far, Chris Higgins, is injured for the next 6 weeks!
Okay, here we go. Having played hockey for years, and understanding where Carbo is coming from, I think I have something that he should definately try during his line juggling. Firstly, I agree with trying to put some fire under Sammy’s pants, he’s an extremely talented player and riling him up is what we need. In order to get what we want out of him I think we should give him a few games on the first line to bump his confidence back up after being sat for a bit. As far as Gui being put on the second line….it’s about time, this kid has major potential, and I think he’d be a great addition to the top 6 forwards. The power play lines are too standard. I think what we should do is juggle them a bit too. Here’s my opinion of some great lines to try during Carbo’s attempts.
Okay, after tonight I think it’s quite obvious that anyone who says “Souray is not playing good hockey and should be traded,” doesn’t know what the hell they are talking about. I played hockey for years as a defenseman and although I may agree that Souray could use some improving on his defensive game, he’s my personal favorite defenseman on the Habs.
