Postgame 18: Groundhog Day

November 10, 2009

I’m so tired of watching the same game over and over again.

The opposing team scores first. The Habs can’t score on the PP. At some point in the second, the Habs unleash a flurry of shots on a goalie who mysteriously seems to be particularly hot against Montreal. Yet the Habs are still outshot. About 80% of the game takes place in the Canadiens’ end. The Habs take dumb penalties at the most inopportune times. Whether Halak or Price play well or terribly, they let in one more goal than the opposing goalie.

It’s great fun, watching the clock rapidly approach the end of the third when the Habs need only one goal to tie it and go into overtime, and knowing that they’re just not… going… to… make… it.

This team… is not awesome.

It’s like watching last year’s shit show, only with more loveable characters. I’m worried that if they don’t find some sort of a spark soon, they’ll all just give up and phone it in for the rest of the year, even after O’Byrne, Gill, and Markov come back.

Game 18 Gionta love: Still playing hard. Kind of tripped all over himself a couple of times there. Still giving it his all.

Andrei Markov: Kill me now.

Marc-André Bergeron: Kill him now.

Goalie Guessing Game: I like Halak, but I’m a Price homer, and Halak lost. But as always, it’s up to Count Chocula.

Why you shouldn’t engage in public dissage of your client’s teammate: Cause then a)your client has a shakyass first period and b) a lot of people question who was behind the whole thing. He couldn’t get a fair shake in this town in the first place…

Chris Higgins Career Watch: The Rangers aren’t playing until Thursday. Whatever he’s doing off the ice, can’t be worse than what the Habs are doing on it.

What team were the Habs playing tonight, again: cause I could swear Pierre et Benoit on RDS thought it was the Calgary Bourques?

Phaneuf: Still the ugliest active NHL player. Man can he hit.

Andrei Kostitsyn and Guillaume Latendresse: I think Pierre et Benoit have some sort of disease which causes them to confuse the numbers 46 and 84. Seriously, are they blind, confused or just mentally challenged? AK46 was really good this game. Fat84 was… really not. And I have news for Pierre et Benoit. Ryan White, a non-Quebecois *gasp* is quietly playing better than Fat84.

I love Fat84, I really do, and not because fat people need love too. I love him because I think he can be a wonderful power forward, whatever that means. However, I would like him to stop being useless and turn into that power forward. Whatever that means.

Travis Moen: May have stolen some of my Gionta love for this game.

New Guy: Did what he set out to do, which was be a non-factor in this game. That’s a good thing.

    Re: Phaneuf – I think he’s only the second ugliest. The title of ugliest goes to the Flyers’ Blair Betts. Poor guy.

      And neither one hold a candle to Mike Ricci in the ugliest player of all-time category.

        No one is uglier than Rod Brind’amour.

        Guimauve… I’m so not wearing his shirt until he wakes up. Yes, I do have a Guimauve84 shirt! I’m gonna go get a Metro shirt…

    Brunet is the worst analyst i’ve ever heard.
