Fifty-five shots on goal. How sad is that, for the Montreal Canadiens to allow 55 shots in a completely unimpressive 2-0 loss to the Predators in Nashville, a team which isn’t pencilled in to win a whole lot of anything this year.
Carey Price’s teammates gave less support than a water-soaked paper jock strap.
I wouldn’t want to be Jacques Martin. Such a frustrating, inconsistant, underachieving bunch he’s trying to work with. This was an unacceptable, pathetic display, with a terrible string of penalties thrown in for good measure. Heck, I wouldn’t even want to be stickboy on this night. How bad is that?
Imagine players wearing the CH and playing like that? Toe Blake is right now pleading with God to send him down so he can give these guys the proper shit they deserve.
Carolina comes to Montreal on Tuesday. For me it’ll be the most curious game of the year so far, if only to see how the Habs play after this bombardment in Nashville. And now’s the time for a change. Surely Bob Gainey and the coaching staff have come to this realization. Either move some players now, or bring up Sergei Kostitysn, or send down several so far into the minors they’d need a periscope to find their way out again.
Better yet, once Battle of the Blades is finished, maybe the three female figure skaters might be interested in joining the Habs.
Montreal had 20 shots on the Predators, as if it matters.
Mike Danton just got out of jail after five and a half years. Maybe we could sign him.
