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?

Montreal again played awfull but I cannot fault the goal goal tending. Come on guy "not a penalty" give me a break. You got away with one after the boarding by Hatcher (the trip) that was not called.

Simple fact is they never took their chances and the Flyers did. Montreal have been critical of the Flyers not making as much chances, but they had better hope that the Flyers power play doesn't kick in soon. Best guess allowing for a slip by the Flyers, 6 and out for the young HABS of whom there fans should be proud of the season they have had.

PS if they do go out it's not the rest of Montreal's problem so stay off the streets guy's and don't tarnish the reputation of one of the greatest cities in the world.

I believe the Habs can come back, we have out played and out skated and out shot the Flyers. Granted Biron is they savior and is hot. We have hit more goal post in the last three games which should have related to goals. We need to have those pucks fly that extra quarter inch to score. He have the heart and the speed and comradery to overcome and succed.

Andy V: Care to rephrase now?

"I had said Habs in 6. Go Habs!." - Andy V.

Habs aren't all that the hockey world thought they'd be. The proved that against the Bruins and again with the Flyers.

The Hasb'eens are best to bow out gracefully against the Flyers rather than squeeze our a series win against them just to be swept by the Pens in the next roun.

Bring Patrick Roy back for the last two games Montreal is going to play this spring.

The Habs are getting what is called a little dose of adversity. Adversity is one of the factors that forms character. Character is what will determine the outcome of this team in this series. Another factor is experience, something the Habs are learning as they go.

It is now up to the coaching staff to make the changes in play, lineup and motivation to show these players how to come from behind in a series.

Philly may not have had many shots, but they've made it count. They've used screens and smart plays on offence and bottled up the slot by collapsing as much as possible on defence.

They've been efficient.

Kudos...

The Habs need a few minor changes 1- getting a body or 2 in front of the net to change up the P.P.

2- Play motivated for the full 60 - they've been sputtering on offence and defence having lapses in both ends. Philly can't handle them at times and at others the Habs seem to be coasting.

The Habs are learning playoff hockey. Gainey, Carbo, Muller and Jarvis are all winners and should be able guide the team through this adversity.

I had said Habs in 6. Go Habs!.

Pete, as I said before. Idiots are idiots wherever you go.

Ole! Ole! Habs Rule -the rest drool!

Their problem is not young ggoaltending but players who don't care if they win. The Russians did nothing last night in particular the top dog. He has to get involved and lead by example Kovalev did nothing last night or the night before. If they lose Price will be the goat and that is not fair to him or the fans. The team that had a awesome power play in the season has disappeared due to the lack of effort by their stars

danny, its called having to many europeans on the habs. the stanley cup means very little to them, the world champion ships and olympics mean more to them.

Canadian fans should stop whining. Habs are just as nasty as the Flyers. Got my Hockey news today and there is a good article in there about Canadian Hockey fans. You all should read it.....
