I could on and on, I suppose, about this and that in the Habs 5-1 loss to the Florida Panthers Thursday night. I could mention Kovalev, Koivu, Plekanec, the Kostitsyn’s. Whoever, it’s all the same. I could complain that throughout much of the roster there was lack of this and not much of that.
Or I could say, as if you didn’t know already, that it was the fourth loss in a row after looking very poor previously against Atlanta, New Jersey, and Tampa Bay.
But I’m tired of complaining. I said all I could say in the other three games.
I just want to add that a shake up is needed now with the Canadiens. Offer a serious handful to Tampa Bay for Vincent Lecavalier. And maybe more importantly, do whatever it takes to make the defence stronger. Give up a whole bunch of good players. Make an offer another team can’t refuse.
Get a good defenceman, please. And Lecavalier. Am I asking too much?
I trust Bob Gainey.
Los Angeles is in Montreal on Saturday, then the Habs tackle the Bruins Sunday afternoon.
