Game 72: Habs/Sens

  • Now would be a good time for your Habs to go on a little season ending 10 game losing streak. By now it is abundantly clear to everyone that the best thing for the Montreal Canadiens to do – is to stop collecting points! As much as I love seeing certain players succeed (Markov, Subban, Two and  Half Men etc.), we’re starting to get to that tipping point where a late-season push could send the Habs climbing up the standings past the Islanders, Hurricanes, Wild – and god forbid – the Maple Leafs.

    While this season has been torture to watch, the one redeeming factor was that at least there would be top-end talent coming into the Habs’ system should they continue to lose. Now we’re on the verge of doing serious damage to the quality of player we can select with our first pick in the 2012 draft.

    The good news is that Ottawa can climb into first place in the North East Division (and thus 2nd in the Conference) with a win at home tonight.   Either way – it appears as though the Sens and Bruins are on a first round collision course. It would benefit either team to go all out in an attempt to gain valuable home ice advantage.

    So Go Sens Go!! And for the love of Pete Montreal – don’t force this game into overtime!!!

    Unfortunately, it seems that Cunneyworth has got this team playing the style of game that we should have been playing all year. And if Markov improves our power play we could very well win more than half the remaining games. Had they achieved this improvement in February we would have been in the hunt by now but the best we can do if we win all our games is what 90 pts. That is wishful thinking of course. But don’t tell the players that. The only way we can achieve this is to sit some quality players and bring up some kids to see what they can do. Also, Price gis playing great hockey and maybe we should be playing Budja more. I am afraid that this team is going to screw things up for a top three pick.
