Habs lose to the Sens in OT.

Shea Weber has been awful lately. Two goals and -4 after 17 games. Lost a battle in front of the net to Josh Norris.

Heard that they are 5-6-1 against teams NOT called the Canucks. Ouch!

It's actually 5-5-2. Don't make it any worse than it already is. :fffffuck:

I'm putting most of the blame on Julien so far. When the team started out fast the defencemen were active and they were taking chances on offence. After a couple of losses Julien reverted the gameplan to playing it safe.

Absolutely livid. Gallagher scores with 3 seconds left, only it gets called back on goalie interference, even though Murray was set. Then they go to overtime, Julien puts his defensive guys out and they turtle. Habs lose in the shootout.

Absolute debacle. League screwed up, Habs screwed up, Julien screwed up.

It's a short season, so there's no time to mess around: after an embarrassing weekend and last night's debacle, the Habs fired Julien and Muller. Coach-in-waiting Dom Ducharme gets his shot.

Wonder if we'll see a non-Francophone head coach in Montreal within our lifetimes.

Habs drop their first two under the new coach. They dominated Saturday, then put out duds in OT and got schooled by three forwards.

Danault hasn't scored in a calendar year and if things go sideways here, maybe they trade him. Suzuki-Kotkaniemi-Evans-Poehling would be fine if they weren't all so wretched on faceoffs. Man, Suzuki is so bad at faceoffs.

Allen looks more like Price than Price these days.

The Avs have Landeskog take a lot of draws because MacKinnon kinda sucks at them. Can any of the wingers take them?

Danault looks like the cat that got eaten by the canary these days. Turned down a lucrative contract offer from Bergevin and it sure looks like that’s a gamble he’s going to lose big-time. Maybe now he can just acknowledge that he’s a third line guy.

So far new coach is sticking with the old lines. Hopefully that changes soon.

Danault hasn't scored a goal in a calendar year. Elite defence can only get you so far. How I'd do it, with Anderson currently out:

Drouin-Suzuki-Toffoli
Tatar-Kotkaniemi-Gallagher

Byron-Danault-Armia

Lehkonen-Evans-Perry/Frolik

I like those forward lines!
