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?

CHeers to the Flyers on taking the seres.

CHeers to Les Canadiens who all the hockey experts said would finish 12th or 13th in the conference.

Bob Gainey and every player on this team has learned for this, and next year, with the right moves, this team can be even stronger.

CHeers to the real Habs fans, we've had a great season; and to the one's on this string - have a great summer!

I'll be watching the rest of the playoffs, but waiting for the football season.

Peace-out.

The big difference in the series was Biron was excellant and Carey was very good. The main reason Montreal lost is that not all their players wanted the cup bad enough and the Flyers did and every player was willing to mix u[, take a hit work hard to get the puck not all on Montreal were willing to do that. The rave about Kovalev is confusing because in my opinion the only player that played worse than him on the Flyers was the spare goalie.

Habs lived by the power play all year long and died by the power play in the playoffs not to mention that Philly was the better team all series.

Habs were lucky to win the game that they did.

The best team won!! Good teams find ways to win. The Habs only found the way to win ONE game! The Habs had more Power Plays. They couldn't score!

This was Montreal's game to lose and they did and although he missed the shot on the glove side in the second period did more than enough to give the Canadien's the chance to win this game. In the end the fans should be proud of their young side and their goalie who will learn from this and be a better player next year.

In the end Philly wanted it more and Biron was again to goo for the Canadiens.

Philly knocks out Montreal!

Thank god, I don't think I can stand another game in Montreal with the fans singing that stupid Ole-Ole song!

After watching the Dallas /SJ game last night..It's getting more and more obvious to me that,it's not necessarely the better team that wins,but as to who the officials decide who will win.Not a fan of either Flyers or habs,but I believe that who ever wins this serie don't stand a chance against the Pens or Rangers.My point is...for the love of God...just let the boys play hockey.Enough of this politic crap already !!!

I can't believe the comments on here.....I'm sure kindergarten kids don't say things like that....I think the ones making the "childish" comments needs to grow up and act their age !!!!!

Speaking of "morons" h-e-l-l-o !!!
