    Bad Babits are creeping back.
    It's a matter of time before this team loses some games in a row. Starting with Saturday.

    4-1 Booins.

    You gonna say the same thing if we lose to Boston and Tampa? A very distinct possibility. Last night was a good example of how a one line team fares in this league. Whenever Danault Tatar and Gallagher go stale we are going to be screwed. Teams will hone in on this. Last night and never mind the refs for a minute we were outplayed by 3 of 4 lines.

    This has to be sarcasm. Tank or not, if you're a Habs fan hoping for Boston to win you're simply asking to not be taken seriously.

    Depends on many factors. But we clearly can see they are trying for the playoffs. So it's either a wild card spot, we just miss the playoffs, or we finish in the bottom 10.

    Nope, Habs have won multiple October Cups in the past. This team will fall off and get a top 5 pick.

    Montreal better end this "Deslaurier is an everyday player" thing if they want to have any actual success this year. I know Bergevin thinks its one of the better moves he's made, but its really not.

    Keep playing him though, I want a good pick.

    Trust me, I will watch the game and hope we win. But if we lose, I'll be fine with it. I can deal with reality and I consider it a win/win situation. We can't lose! ;)

    We gonna win this game 3-2, possibly in overtime.

    Typical Habs to play well vs strong teams, and drop the "easier" games.

    Deslauriers sucks but he's playing like 10 mins a game at maximum, he's not making or hurting the tank. Waivers is where he belongs. Just play someone who has some hope left *cough* Hudon *cough*

    Really looking forward to this game.
    I wonder what Marchand has in store for us.

    The Halak vs. Price matchup should be exciting as well. Unless they put Rask but he's playing like **** and always gets destroyed against the Habs.

    Season never feels fully started til Montreal plays Boston.

    Price will have to be exceptional because our D was dominated by the Eichel line imagine what the Bergeron line will do.

    According to the mainboard/Torts rivalries don't exist anymore; however I do expect to see some intense hugging from Gallagher and Marchand in this one.

    If both Shaw and Deslauriers are in the lineup, I won't be a happy camper.

    Tough game on the road in Boston. Curious to see how the team responds after the turd they laid last night.

    Shaw is in vs Boston. I don't see Hudon replacing Shaw

    Sorry folks but Mete is not ready and needs more seasoning. A fast skating puck moving D man that creates zero offense? Send him down and bring up Kulak

    He's going to bring lots of amusement to Boston fans. Claude's (hopefully) last testament to them.

    Time to put back some skills in the line up, Boston is not the old goons anymore, no need to have a tough 4th line

    Drouin Domi Lek
    Tatar KK Gallagher
    Byron Daneault Armia
    Hudon Peca Scherbak

    Rielly Petry
    Mete Juulsen
    Ouelette Benn

    Shaw and Deslauries need to go, useless for the team we're trying to ice around speed and passing, they can't do much of either and take dumb penalties, Shaw especially. Physicality is grossly overrated in today's game and they frankly barely bring that at this point. They belong with the Alzners of the world, in 2008. I'd be happy if they never played another game for us.

    100% THIS!

    It's not 2011, you need all 4 lines to contribute. You can't have a useless line that makes the other team better as part of your gameplan. Speed and skill>crash and bang.
