Darth Talks About The Game He Was At (And It Isn’t Pretty)

Darth was at the Leafs-Habs game Saturday night, and he’s not a happy camper. The Habs failed in so many ways to impress him.
Here’s his email describing the mess:
“I can tell you right off the bat that if you want to sum this game up simply, you can do it by calling it what it was: a real shitter of a game that should be tossed in the “Forget” file and never thought of again.
Most of the team didn’t show up. Cole, Pacioretty, Subban, Price, White and DD did (although he disappeared afterwards though). Staubitz’s fight was great but after that he was invisible.
The rest of the team wasn’t really there. Pleks looked awful, Bourque looked so-so, Kaberle and Weber and Campoli are awful, and Emelin was really quiet (I’ll give him a pass though because he may be playing hurt as a result of our last game). Blake was completely invisible and Louis Leblanc isn’t ready for the big show yet – not by a long shot.
The passing was terrible: passes to no one, passes to the wrong players, badly-timed passes, you name it.
The Leafs played with intensity and we didn’t. A lot of the guys played half-assed and you can bet they’re probably just phoning it in and are already planning their summers.
41 shots to 21? Terrible. The Leafs didn’t even look all that great. They even played nervous at first (at least it looked that way live) but then they took it over easily. We could have won this, but we didn’t bother to apply ourselves.
The ref work was pretty bad as well. Inconsistency all over the place. Komisarek looked really awful.
I’d say the crowd was split 50/50. The comments being shouted out were pretty funny from both sides and there were some really obnoxious fans there from both sets of fans. Afterwards they really stuck it to us though. Talk about painful.
The intensity in the crowd was amazing. Really loud and really into it but as time passed the Leaf fans really took it over.
So that’s it for me this season. I’ll try to get to a few more next season where I hope we’ll be a much better team. We’re really god-awful Dennis. You’ll see it for yourself next week (unless we actually show up for it). You won’t believe how bad Kaberle and Campoli are.”
