What should the Habs do in the off-season?
Thu, June 5, 2008

Having a big, tough team suits some NHL clubs, but isn't the top priority of the Montreal Canadiens.

So don't look for general manager Bob Gainey to dismantle his smooth-skating club after their playoff defeat to the bruising Philadelphia Flyers.

Gainey and Carbonneau met with the media to discuss the season that just ended, in which the unfancied Canadiens finished first in the Eastern Conference and in goal-scoring in the 30-team league.
Full story: Gainey will be busy in the off-season

What do you think Gainey should do with Canadiens over the summer?

The Penguins will sweep the Habs. Price is overated and will crumble when Crosby and pals start crashing the net. He is only good when he can see the puck and Boston have let him see it way too often. Boston have outplayed them three times and lucky for the Habs that Boston can't score a goal.

Montreal could ice the worst team in their history and the Bruins couldn't beat....Montreal just seems to have Boston's number.

I'm a huge Bs fan but I have to (and hate to) admit that we're done. I didn't actually think we'd win a game... we might win another (unlikely) but the Habs will win the series and face the Pens in the final.

The Bruins are done!!!

Carey price is playing well and showing maturity well beyond his years, the team with the hottest goalie usually wins the cup.

Yes, the Habs have what it takes to go all the way. They have a goalie that can carry them in tough games. They have three very solid lines with no superstars: just hard working, hungry and talented players. They have faced adversity, stared it in the face and overcome. Even losing their captain has not really shaken their resolve. I remember Patrick Roy in 1993 and all those consecutive games they won in overtime or by only 1 goal and a hot goalie in the playoffs can make all the difference. Price is that hot goalie. Go Habs Go!

The canadiens are a very strong team both on defense and on offense but their best player right now is the 20 year old goaltender Carey Price. He was very good in IIHF World Juniors for canada and is showing that he's got what it takes to play in the NHL. Especially right now with all the people expecting the habs to go a long way. Theres a lot of pressure on all of them but I think they can go all the way.

The main reason the playoffs are not like the regular season is the officiating changes. The officials throw the rule book out the window and allow interference, holding and hooking that should be called like it is in the regular season. Slower, weaker teams can bring faster, more skilled teams down to their level in the playoffs because they are allowed to interfere, clutch and grab.

It wasn't always that way but it has been for a few years now. The NHL should be ashamed of its officials as they are the worst of all major sports. Its a blemish on the game!

Picking up on the 'greenhouse' analogy, actually the Habs more resemble a 'house of cards'. There appears to be a shape, but what if someone blows on it? Not for a moment is this version of a team the real deal! What they have accomplished with what they have is remarkable from where they were a year ago, but better to whisper than blow...
