Toronto Tuesday

  • The Canadiens play in Toronto tonight on a rare Tuesday meeting with the Leafs. The Habs have elected to put Carey Price in between the pipes instead of Cristobal Huet.

    It’s no secret Cristobal Huet for whatever reason, has never really been effective against the Leafs and has never won a game in Toronto. It seems like an easy call to make.

    If the Canadiens manage to put forth the effort they did against Ottawa, they in theory should have absolutely no trouble with the Leafs.

    As we all know, the Leafs are a different team when they play the Canadiens and it is never a predictable game.

    mtl is unfortunately a middle of the road team yet again this year. They’ll play hard, win some, most likely squeak into the playoffs, but are not of the same caliber as the main teams that can actually make a serious run for the cup. I’ll cheer for them, but let’s be real: until a few key changes are made, they will not be serious contenders.

  13. Montreal canadians are winning

    How lucky can you be? Habs had no business winning this game. They were totally outplayed by the leafs. Habs didn’t start skating until the middle of the 3rd period. Oh well, just consider it justice because we should have gotten 1 point in the Ottawa game, and got nothing. So sweet revenge. But please habs skate in your next game! If we had played a better team, we would have been bombed!

    If Huet had played, we would have lost!

  16. The way I saw this game was that the Habs didn’t show the spunk they showed when the lost to the Maple Sh#i%ts last. That game and the previous one to that were basically gifts the Canadiens made to them. This one proved the other way around but extra mention that the Habs scored more than one goal and Price letting that deflection in (hard one to take – too casual on the play!). Again too many penalties and what is it going to take to get some leadership…Kovalev had three points which means we won’t see him again till the next fourth game as he’ll be invisible now for the next three. I am glad he is scoring but if we check other teams with their star players (or at least the ones earning the same cash as him are there every night every shift!!!)

    So let’s take the win and keep on…shake up that energy…the young guns are there for this…so use them tell them to hit everything with the puck…get that jersey dirty.

    Let’s go! Come on, this is where the leaders (Pleks, Kovalev, Koivu, Markov (eventhough the penalties have got to stop), Hamrlik have to push to another level. Still looking for that trade!! That big centreman or closer (call Teemu) – Patrick Marleau…somebody that can score (what’s Ryder’s role!)

    Go Habs Go!

    habs fanatic, you have no reason to post here…you are always regurgitating the same old story all the time, why the habs lost, why the habs should of lost. are you some low life asshole that sits at home and waits to trash the habs online and goes about wandering around the city with your maxime lapierre jersey on boasting how great this team is? i’d love to meet you at a bar and put you in your place. you must be some grizzled old fart with nothing better to do in your yourself a favor and get lost.

    gee Superfan: I could have sworn you were the asshole!
    At least I have the class not to insult another blogger.
    I’m only spewing some of the garbage you directed at me!
    At least I give realistic constructive criticism! And if you think the habs played for 60 minutes, then you are the only one that thinks that!
    and if you think we played well killing penalties, then you are a true MORON!
    So if youy dish it out, I’ll give it right back, ASS HOLE!

    Habs Fanatic & Chevy4CH are the worst kind of fans to have… the team is outplaying their expectations so far this season, but still nothing good to say… I believe HABS BLOG runs the site here, and is a forum for fans, not mindless critics who just spew negative remarks just to get attention…

    You both should just switch to a ping pong blog somewhere, they want your opinions there, no one wants them here…

    Michael Ryder for Mikko Koivu and a 2nd round pick.

    let’s trade chevy, that american prick and habs fanatic for a used puck bag.
    Price played great, and Huet has been one of the top 3 goalies in the entire league last 3 years. Especially this year..don;t believe me..go check his stats…too bad goaltending is all we have….we need a lot of work upfront

  22. Sorry Stanley, that isn’t happening. I don’t know how many Western Conference games you have watched this year but Mikko Koivu is an unreal, all around player, more so then Ryder and he is younger then Ryder. He has the big body presence in front of the net and still has sweet hands to score a highlight reel goal. He is reliable in the face off circle and has great work ethic and backchecks hard. We will never trade Ryder for him. But in my opinion, I think Ryder belongs on this team. He has a wicked shot and is a big guy that works hard and always has nice hits. He is in something that many players in every sport go through. A SLUMP.. We all watch the games and you can all tell that the guy is trying his ass off. He works hard in the corners and is physically present but as soon as he gets the puck on his stick he has trouble. Now that is just a confidence issue, that he needs to get out of. What Ryder needs is a couple of garbage goals and an empty netter or something like that to get his confidence back. We all know what he can do, and because he isn’t playing well right now doesn’t mean we should just ship him away. If that was the case then trades would happen alot more often in the NHL, come on guys have faith. I mean we all hated Kovalev, some of us still do, but he is playing unreal right now with the habs and if some of us had our way he woulda been gone a long time ago.
    Lastly, Habs fanatic you say you offer constructive criticism? How the fuck is post #15 and #16 constructive criticism. All you say that is even remotly close is that they need to skate. Well shit, you should be the coach.. we don’t wanna hear that shit and the players don’t come onto this blog and read what you have to say, so keep your bullshit to yourself and say something about the team that shows your knowledge as a HABS FAN.. not someone who just sits there and bash’s them. So what if you don’t think they are as good as they are playing… tell us why.. not senseless blabber that a 5 year old can say. Opinions are one thing when you have knowledge to back it up, but when you just spit shit out you sound half mental and immature.

  23. and habs fanatic… to your post #19, I think the habs played very well the whole 60 minutes and the one minute into overtime, and I think they were extremely well on the PK and I’m sure many other guys here think that too.
    The only problem I have had with the habs this year, is the fact that they get a one or two goal lead and try to protect it by going into a defensive shell. I don’t know what it is but they just can’t do that. Never seems to work, anyone have an opinion on this.. habs fanatic say something worth reading if your gonna say something.

  24. I agree RBK. they were gonna beat the sens also but they sat back.

  25. Here we go again. Started out on fire like last year…took a while but other teams figured out we cant score 5 on 5, therefore, stay outta the box and they win. ( PP is not even looking very good now) Back to the same ol same ol…we need scoring and apparently no one there can do it. Well, maybe Im being hastey..Kovy’s line is playing awesome..getting chances, scoring goals. The 1st line is horrible. Looks like Ryder’s lookin for a ride somewhere else, and is Koivu even playing????? Hard to notice him. Yet Carbo keeps them together. A #1 line….thats the scoring line for other teams isnt it??? Ottawa is plaguing us again this year…AND the bloody leafs. These guys are losing to everyone, they’re playing like an AHL team, and yet we cant beat em?? Come on boys, lets play some meaningful hockey. Give that 1st line a kick in the ass and get em going. Someone tell one of these guys to go a stand in front of the net. Instead of all 3 spending every shift huggin the boards..not gonna score from there. At least it took us til after the all-star break last year to start playin this candy ass hockey. Is this gonna be another false hope year? Number 1 PP in the league….whoopdie doo…not much odds unless you spend the whole game on the PP. These guys just cant score..whats the prob? Can someone say “healthy scratch”? Gotta try something Guy, you gotta see whats goin on dont ya? I want 1 good year..just 1. Lets get playin some inspired hockey again and lets start with the Leafs tomorrow night. If we dont soon snap out of this spiral and get goin we’re gonna hit the same rut as last year and end up in the same place. Dont know why I continue to love ya guys, but I do…Habs fan til the end I am, but its getting very frustrating, and Im sure Im not alone. Either get scoring regularily 5 on 5 or go after someone who you can trade for and get them in here. If not, Im afraid we got nothing to look forward to but the same fate we dealt with last year. 9th or 10th dont make the playoffs. Let go team..wake the hell up and put that friggin puck behind a few goalies when we got the same number of guys on the ice that they do. Go Habs Go !!!!!
