I was at the game last night (Dec. 11, 2007 vs Tampa) and was very dissapointed with what I saw… I can’t believe I actually paid to see that poor performance. With this said, I don’t think the players are completely to blame. Yes, they had all the trouble in the world to clear their zone. However, when players like Lecavalier, Richards (whom played awsome) and St-Louis are constantly buzzing in your zone, you are prone to make mistakes.
Right, So we have all been wondering what the hell is going on with the habs right? Lets start from the beginning.. Remember when the Canadians were actually a force to be reckoned with, when they actually had players. When they were a well balanced team? Remember Lafleur, Maurice, Roy, Boom Boom,Dryden. All those amazing players. That was when the Canadians were an actual legend, when we were a team of intimidation.
