Watch them play: They have two guys who show up every night and every shift. The rest of the team has become extremely lazy. It's painful to watch. Why is it that if Subban loses the puck, the other team pretty much automatically scores? The dude's an offensive D-Man. He is going to carry the puck. The other players should be prepared to rush back should anything happen. Karlsson and Doughty both have high turnover numbers too due to their style, but their teammates help carry the defensive load.

Not that it matters but they've now lost Brendan Gallagher indefinitely.

Their season being officially over i hope they make some major trades before next season.IMO no one would be untouchable, i'd also have a serious look at some big changes in management.

What in the world took so long to put him at center? He needs to be at center with Gallagher and Pacioretty at the wing. I've been saying this forever. Now he's at center, and all of a sudden you've unleashed a beast of a player. SMH...

The season being lost, regroup, make some trades, but I think they should keep the core. Subban, Pacioretty, Gallagher, Galchenyuk, Price and Markov. Maybe keep Condon as a backup. Scrivens is just too slow. (That 3rd Dallas goal is something that happens way too often.) The rest should all be trade bait.

Amazing how you and i can see how obvious this move is to benefit the team yet management doesnt seem to have a clue..
You may not agree but i'd let Price get good and healthy then trade him after the season is over. He always seems to have the potential but never really capitalizes on it.
I'd also give serious consideration to doing the same for Subban,he just makes too many mistakes that cost the team,

I disagree about Subban. He does make some mistakes, yes, but his production FAR outweighs any errors he makes. His ice time is sky high, as his his possession time. I think the reason why his errors appear the way they do is due to lack of support from the rest of the team. Look at that turnover vs LA last week: where were the rest of the guys? Nonchalantly skating around, waiting for him to skate it up. Why wasn't someone back there with him to create an opportunity for a lateral pass? Not to mention, if a DMan is skating up, a player should ALWAYS stay back a little in case such an error occurs. I think he is BY FAR the most important player on the ice.
As for Price, I think last year would have had an entirely different outcome had Kreider not crashed into him. Same with this season. Our backups stink. Condon is decent, but not dependable to play good every game. Scrivens is too slow. Needs to go to the AHL.

It's just been a crappy year for the Canadian teams! I dunno if it's because the Loonie has been on the downward swing or what, but it just is! I hope it's just a temporary blip and that the teams of the Great White North will bounce back next year! The NHL playoffs just ain't the same without them!

Kinda depressing to envision no Canadian team making the playoffs this year.

The Canadiens' only excuse is poor management. There is no other reason why they should be doing so poorly this season. It's been an ongoing issue for the Canadiens, with idiotic trades such as that of Halak in 2010. Koivu got traded for no good reason as well, and then a total lack of leadership ensued. Now, you trade Dale Weise for next to nothing, and practically give away Smith-Pelly who was fitting in very well. Keep throwing Desharnais on the top line (for whatever reason... He's NOT GOOD) over Galchenyuk...
