Glad this time the Avs were the ones on the receiving end.

The problem with them is that they STILL don't have consistent scorers. Pacioretty has a good shot, sure, but is he really going to lead the offense the way top teams' top players do? Montreal has a bunch of mediocre players, with a few good ones, but no one is really GREAT. This was in part why I was so annoyed with management over the summer. You trade Subban for Weber, when the problem was never defense to begin with.
Let's hope Price stays healthy this year, but the way he's been getting plowed into so often lately, I doubt it.

After another great start to the season they are starting to slip into their usual mediocrity. Expect no cup this year from the Habs.

I never expected a cup for them this year. Not with Therrien there, another crap head coach.

Can you believe he's now the 4th longest tenured coach in the NHL, with the Julien firing yesterday? That's hilarious that only 3 teams haven't made a head coaching change since they hired Therrien there. 2 of the head coaches that have managed to last longer have multiple cups this decade. Don't even ask me what Tippett is still doing in Arizona after almost 8 years.

Julien used to coach there, so we know he can speak French!

I start every hockey season with the expectation my team is going to go all the way and win the cup,i definitely got spoiled in the 50s through 70s when the Canadians were the dynasty,now its been a long time since our last successful season in 93.not sure what their problem is going from what they once were to the mediocre team they are now. I'm not sure changing the coach would be anything more than a bandaid fix IMO the whole organization needs a major overhaul.

People were all hailing Therrien for his offseason moves; I was one who said it from the start: Yes, Weber is good, but he cannot carry a team on his own. Looking at PK last year with an even worse situation (AHL goalies) and the same lackluster forwards, PK did a much better job at keeping the flow of the game going; albeit, on his own.
The Weber/PK trade was absolutely useless, and added nothing to the team. Rather, it took away the best puckhandler we had and replaced him with a "bigger" body in the D-Zone who likes to screen his own goalie, and who has a rocket hard slap shot that's good at injuring players. Whoop-dee-do. People liked to talk about PK's turnover stats, but then so far this season, PK is -19 in Takeaway/Turnover while Weber is -47 .

Radulov was a nice addition up front, but not enough.
Gallagher, as much as I like him, is done IMO. He will never fully recover from that mangled hand, and frankly, he's too small to be playing the style he plays. He plays like Wayne Simmonds, but stands roughly a half-foot shorter.
Pacioretty seems to be their only consistent player.

In the end, Therrien's system simply does not work. He NEEDS to go. And I have a feeling Price will be leaving too, unless he wants to waste his stellar career with a mediocre team staffed by stubborn nincompoops.

The player moves are made by Marc Bergevin, the GM, not Michel Therrien.

They're still in first place in their division, and 8th in the league.

My mistake.

They play in the worst division in the league. They'd be fighting for a Wild Card spot in the Metropolitan Division.

And mind you, this is after the stellar start that they had (again) early this season.

They've been in the negative since the start of December. And not getting any better.
