    Calgary is a team built for the playoffs. The Habs are a team being built for a long run. What Calgary has that the Habs don’t is the physical presence required to go all the way. (And if you think that Calgary couldn’t come out of the West, then you’re not paying attention.) This is something that should be addressed in the off-season.

    That said, I am elated at the success that the Habs have had this season. They have exceeded expectations in many regards, and I have faith that they’ll go deep into these playoffs. But, as I stated earlier on, I do not yet see a potential Stanley Cup champion on the ice for Montreal. They’re close, but they lack that physical punch.

    What’s with all the drama? The Bruins played a bit harder than we did, Tim Thomas was outstanding and we came up short in overtime – I’ve seen worse things happen. To call the series off while we’re still up 2-1 is something I’d expect to hear from an overeager Bruins fan, not supposed Habs supporters.

    I think that, if anything, this loss is simply good fortune. A close game decided in overtime that does not take away from confidence, does add to the grit the boys will bring on Tuesday and allows us to take the Bruins out in front of a home crowd.

    Calm the fu@k down and enjoy the playoffs :)

    Bob Gainey, Guy Carboneau and Kirk Muller, were all playoff players and Cup winners. I believe they know better coaching than most of us here. So, relax.

    I’d like to see O’byrne (and Boullion if healthy) along with Stewart in for the next game.
    I’d like to give Breezer (not that he’s been playing bad) a rest. Also, I’d like any one
    of Lats, Dandy, Higs, or Ryder have a seat as well for a game.

    I do think we’ll win – but not without some changes in style. A bit less finesse and some
    more punch please.

    I think O’Byrne will play tomorrow night. Carbo said he will sleep on it, but it’s a good bet, and maybe if he skates today without pain, Bouillon could possibly play. Koivu goes for an xray tomorrow, to see where he’s at. If habs lose tomorrow, I bet he plays on Thursday.

    CARNAGE bashes everyone on this site who DOESN’T agree with him. he’s showing his true nature, very ignorant, and obviously very insecure, if he feels the need to bash everyone who disagrees. This is a forum for OPINIONS, RIGHT OR WRONG! Do you get that jerk?
    Oh, BTW, I’m going to continue voicing my opinion, no matter what!

    yes, I can see O’byrne and Bouillon playing tomorrow and Koivu on Thursday. we’ll win both games with our captain in the lineup. he’s got the courage and grit we’re missing.

    Hey Habs Blog,

    Are any of these alias the same person? Some sound alike especially when their blogs are in a ” I know everything about hockey and I’m the biggest Habs fan. Oh, yeah, I’m a bigger fan than you” voice.

    Freedom of speech. Too bad there are idiots who say they’re fans but knock the team after ONE LOSS!!!

    Wake up folks! At least we here and stand a great chance at beating the Bruins. Isn’t that satisfaction enough?

    Montreal is gaining some great experience. This loss keeps them grounded and they know they can bounce back!!! Price is playing GREAT.

    Go Habs GO!!!

    bruins look like the big bad bruins, and we look like little bo peep. The streak has to end sometime, and we don’t play well against physical teams.
    Anyways this is just my opinion, which I am entitled to.
    I am positive WHEN THE HABS PLAY WELL. does anyone think that the bruins didn’t dominate?

    so does anybody think the habs look good? the bruins are smoking us with their physical play. Habs don’t play well against physical teams.
    the streak has to end sometime, and this is the 1st time this year that Boston has the lead. That should tell you something.

    So what exactly is a ‘fair weather fan’? Someone who only follows the team if it’s winning, or someone who dares to speak his mind if the team seems to be lacking in some manner?

    Whatever, who cares. This really is an uninteresting topic.

  27. #27 Don Carnage says:
    April 14, 2008 at 9:10 pm

    The fair weather fans are the cry babies that whine and cry everytime something does not go the way they think it should in their little minds, We see them all the time, it is one thing to say maybe we could dress such and such a player or maybe we could try this style or that style of play, but to out right cry and say things like , its over we are cooked , I am taking the flag off my car, we wont win another game, the series is over bla bla is sheer nonesence from nothing more than fair weather fans with no faith and no class, a true fan will never abandon his/her team ever no matter what happens …

    And a fan will never sell his team short no matter what happens this year I am proud of the Habs and all they have done this year … and I am sure we will be strong for a good number of years to come …

    Hey Iceman, just catching up but you mentioned about no one criticizing our defense, check out #85 and a few others. I may have not said it exactly like you did but I am not happy with our defense. It is pretty bad when Brisebois is one of our best.

    85 Senet 1
    Posted on April 13th, 2008 at 11:03 pm. About ‘Habs / Bruins: i agree the coach can make changes anytime he wants to all I am saying is that Brisebois was one of our better defenseman, only because Markov is playing below average and Komy just is not healthy yet and Streit is also playing below par. I have never personally like Brisebois but you have to admit he played over his head for the last two games.

  30. #30 Don Carnage says:

    Thats right Brisebois has played very well and there are people that still disrespect him all the time.

    Hi Senet 1:

    I’m saying that the D-men left Price out to Dry on all of the Goals in this series.

    I feel bad for PRICE. He is the only Man that shows up to play 60 mins. every game.

    Sure, I will rant a rave on my Habs and I have every right to. For I pay part of their Wages as a Fan going to the games, buying merchandice etc.

    Some times I may go a bit to far and I am the first to admit it. I still have thr Habs flag on my Olds. I wore my Habs T-Shirt to work today.

  35. OK, its over now lets move on ,it’s all good.So any guesses to tomorro’s score?I’ll go with 2-1 Habs.

  36. #36 Senet 1 says:
    April 14, 2008 at 9:51 pm

    Iceman in a round about way I am trying to say that I agree with you, I believe that our defense has been our downfall in the last two games. I hate it when we have the jump on the Boston forward yet he beats us to the puck inthe corner because we are afraid to get hit. We should be the hitter not the hittee. This is the worst I have seen Markov play all season. Maybe he is playing hurt and we don’t know about it. It is obvious Komy is still playing hurt he is not hurting us but we need him to start making his presence felt, hopfully with a days rest he can start to hit.

  37. #37 Senet 1 says:
    April 14, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    Here is a prospective to consider, we had a bad game on Saturday and won, then we had to fly to Boston and play again without any practice to correct our problems from game two. We probably did not get much sleep or rest whereas the Bruins although they lost probably felt good about themselves and got a good night’s sleep. Here is betting that the coaching staff make the appropriate adjustments in practice today in preparation for tomorrow night’s game.

    I think that maybe some fans are just more emotionally reactive than others. This is not to suggest that those less emotionally reactive are any less passionate though. I just think that some people react highly emotionally to things whereas others digest the situation for a while before reacting. No?

    I, for one, do react emotionally, but I wouldn’t abandon the Habs or lose faith in them just because I was upset about a particular performance. I know that they’ll be playing in the second round, and very likely in the third, but I’d like to see a more consistent effort and a lot more in the way of physical play, because I’d like to see this team win it all this year. 24 doesn’t roll off the tongue nearly as nicely as 25 does.

  39. #39 Senet 1 says:

    Hey joseph, we all get emotional some of more so than others, I know that you are a true habs fan and have only their best intestest at hard. I agree there is something about 25 that sounds better. Just imagine, if we win either this year or next year we will have 25 cups in 100 years. once every four years a cup NOT BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. #40 Joseph says:
    April 14, 2008 at 11:48 pm

    Thanks, Senet 1. I’m on board for the long haul, as I have been for some time.

    It’s funny, I was just telling a friend today (an objective Leafs fan) that another Cup will bring the average to 1 in every 4 years. They agreed that that is pretty spectacular. ;-)

  41. guys our team is winning next year for sure all the young guns are going to get alot more better. kostitsynsare going to get 70 pts each,Price will get vezina,higgy will have a great season with 30+ goals and Ryder will come back. I have a feeling Kovalev won’t be as good though.

    Good moring Habs Fans. It is a Great Day.

    The Habs will win tonight. I can feel it.

    Loss my Cool there, had a bit of a meltdown. I’m better now though. Went to the Doctor’s yesterday he gave me stronger Meds. He said to take these little pills when I was feeling upset and I will feel great and nothing will bother me. So I will take them at the start of the 3rd period and by the time the game is over it doesn’t matter if the Habs lose it will still have control and I will be happy.

    The only down side to this is if Boston wins I will still be happy. That part sucks.

    Lets Go Habs. Lets make a statement tonight that we will not give you Bruins another game. For the next 13 games played…….
