Drouin and Byron out indefinitely. Habs were lucky on the injury front last year, so now's the time to prove they actually have forward depth.

On the farm, Poehling is also hurt again.

This team is Jekyll and Hyde. You don't know which version will show up. All I know is they're a borderline playoff team and ownership wants them in no matter the cost.

What a shit show last night. Blew an easy lead against a mediocre opponent. Can't explain it.

I mean...if Carey Price and Sergei Bobrovsky aren't worth those megadeals, then no goalie is. Not ever.

But just last week Price stole them a few points, so it goes both ways.

I still think, in the long run, that paying your netminder eight figures annually in a hard-cap system is ultimately not the way to go. Look, I get it...not like Bergevin had much of a choice, but soooo much is on the goalie's shoulders to stay elite and healthy.

Absolutely, but the Habs have the second most cap space in the league, so they can't call Price's deal an albatross. Time for Bergy to shoot his shot.

Well, he sure as hell keeps tryin' but the girl keeps moving out of the way at the last second.

Good gravy, Habs got touchdowned by the Bruins. Price faltered Saturday against the Rags and got pulled last night. Not a good look.

Another loss, Mete goes down with an injury.

Weber and Chiarot played 27 minutes apiece. That'll get em back on track!

Nine straight losses for the Habs. It's gonna be a stormy Monday in Montreal.

First step probably involves callups and send downs.

Cousins, Reilly, Olofsson, Hudon, Thompson, Fleury, Kulak, Weal and Kinkaid are all pretty whatever right now. Evans, Vejdemo, Alzner, Juulsen all looking ok on the farm (although Juulsen may be hurt again).

Second step is trades. They need a rental at LD above all else. Then a forward to replace Drouin while he's out. Centre depth could be nice too with Suzuki and Kotkaniemi shouldering a lot of responsibilities.

This team isn't very good. They need to add players before dumping the coach.

Leskinen, Peca and Barber likely in the lineup tomorrow against Pittsburgh. The Habs are banged up, but upcoming games against the Croz-less Pens, Sens and Wingz are all winnable.

You really think they should axe Julien? This just looks like a very "meh" roster. Underlying numbers suggest he's getting the most out of it, but the goaltending just isn't there.

No, I'm saying they should make roster moves before firing the coach. They're a meh roster that's suddenly down a few important pieces due to injury: they need to fill those spots before making rash decisions.

Ah, gotcha. The future still looks bright on this team, but man they're just having shit luck on the injury front.
