Are these guys done like deniro(actor, that would be)? It's easy to be critical with their recent form, but doubts have long been suggested upon their elfish fwd-cast. With the current dead-puck/zombie-mauling & maiming style being in fashion, I fail to see them pulling out of their death-spiral.

Their fans are passionate, but it appears their marketable stars(Subban, Price) were just a pretty mask to front an ugly mug. Bergeron has his hands full. He's gotta' dump 2 or 3 midgets & get bigger/tougher...Problem is, so do about 15-20 OTHER teams. I think gm's league-wide see where this league is goin', hence the exorbitant price for grinders like Clowe.

Lastly, is the Price right? who's "the next contestant" to question this guy's standing? I'm interested to hear opinion on this BC boy... Seems eastern media discuss this bloke in hushed tones, as if some saviour-tender.. But he hasn't yet made a Halak-like statement, has he?

Long-term(3~7 years), I'd say Ottawa & Toronto will leave this team in the dust

Well Matty-O, It seems they're getting blown out once again(currently 5-1 Pens); en route to losing 4 of their last 5. Boston will certainly take their division; wouldn't be shocked if Mtl starts PO's on the road.

Not optimistic 'bout the Habs.

The Habs will be fine. They're a heart and soul team with a lot of character guys. They probably just want to play Toronto in the first round haha.

Agreed it would be quite a spectacle. Don the prognosticator-cap, & tell me who finishes as #4 seed?

There was mention of it a while ago along with Rask, Bobrovsky, Schneider, etc. I would assume Price is out of it now.

Remember pundits dismissing Lu & anointing Price the obvious Olympic TC-answer? Media tried so hard to attach negativity to Luongo.

Truth is, I don't really see any Canadian 'tender putting up a consistent body of work over the past 2, 3 seasons.

I agree, TSN loves to praise Price and with a .907 SV% I'm not sure how he can possibly get the Vezina let alone a nomination.

It would be complete BS if he even got a nomination at this point.

I've been watching a lot of hockey and as a Canadian hockey fan I'm worried for them. They went from 3rd worst to 3 best this year. However, their goaltending in absolutely falling apart, they switched goalies about 4 times yesterday. They're penalty killing is atrocious, and they're very small. All of these things say first round knockout, although I hope not.

Their problem is that they depend on a lot of offense from PK Subban. Rattle him, get him off his game, or keep him in his own zone, and the Habs will have some difficulty scoring.


Don't look now, but the 1st round features TO vs. Mtl. Ohhhhh, baby. lol

Their fans are passionate, but it appears their marketable stars(Subban, Price) were just a pretty mask to front an ugly mug. Bergeron has his hands full. He's gotta' dump 2 or 3 midgets & get bigger/tougher...Problem is, so do about 15-20 OTHER teams. I think gm's league-wide see where this league is goin', hence the exorbitant price for grinders like Clowe.

Lastly, is the Price right? who's "the next contestant" to question this guy's standing? I'm interested to hear opinion on this BC boy... Seems eastern media discuss this bloke in hushed tones, as if some saviour-tender.. But he hasn't yet made a Halak-like statement, has he?

Long-term(3~7 years), I'd say Ottawa & Toronto will leave this team in the dust

Galchenyuk, Tinordi, Gallagher, Collberg, Hudon, Bozon, Beaulieau, Leblanc, Thrower, Ellis, Kristo, Subban, Price, Dumont, Eller, Pacioretty, and 6 picks in the top 90 this year? Please go on.

Also Price is right: http://www.hockeydb....y.php?pid=72046 <--- Those look like solid numbers to me. Price had a 2 or 3 "bad" games this year, which affected his save percentage. Have you watched many games? Because I've watched every game, besides the occasional few, and anoyone with half a functional brain can tell he's the backbone of this team. You can't blame the goalie for defensive breakdowns... Something some people here on CDC don't realize, because they have their heads up their asses. A recent losing streak and suddenly everything is apparently wrong with the team, give your head a shake... Wait for playoffs and the Habs will have a deep run.

Also check your facts before blindly ranting about non sense. The Habs have a deeper prospect pool than both the Leafs and the Sens...

EDIT: I'd also like to add that the Habs have been without Emelin and Diaz during these recent losses. Let's take out Edler and Bieksa, then see how well the Canucks do....

Still kinda surprised that Markov's lasted this long. His health (finally) is a major factor toward any Hab success this season.

The injury to (Y)emelin is significant.

Gorges says the team is playing soft. He is correct.

Out of Mtl, TO and Ott, TO is the better team at the moment.

Someone wanna' update their misery? Lost 3-2 to jersey..Couldn't make a deal with THAT Devil? Hmm..Now it appears TO could catch them (bxb in Florida; then these two teams meet, LAST DAY!)

Habs could tumble right out of the top 4, & start PO's on the road, probably in COTU-bet they're panicking in Quebec. What will happen to Price if they don't turn this ship around?
