How (frank)ing sad is it that we didn't win more with numbers like these?

Reminds me when we lost to the Rangers a few years ago. Price was stellar but no one would score goals except for Raduuuuuuuuuuu

Tis the rollercoaster of being a Habs fan. And I miss Radz

i feel like i'm missing something with KK or maybe everyone else has just lowered their expectations for him. because in the final third of the ice, i find that he's been barely noticeable pretty much all season.

Around mid season I thought he was very good.

In the first few months, KK was first in the team for intercepting passes, killing opponents plays, creating turnovers and amongst the best for number of shots while on the ice.

Basically, he was creating plenty of opportunities for his linemates but the points didn't really follow for him.

This all stopped at the end of March. He's currently pretty damn close to useless.

Can't believe you guys drafted Nick Bonino 3rd overall.

It's strange. Staal is playing like he did that year the Rangers made the move for him before he got it back together in Minnesota.

with everyone expected to be ready to go next week, I am curious to see what Ducharme/MB will come up with as a line up to start.

Hope he turns it up a notch during the playoffs, at his age it might be his last shot at a cup.
