The season so far…

November 16, 2009

20 games played, 9 wins, 11 losses, 7/9 wins in OT.

12th place in the East, and pretty much everybody and their mother has games in hand on the Habs.

I refuse to believe my Canadiens suck this much. They’re no Pittsburgh, Washington or San Jose, but they’re not a basement team, either. At least, they weren’t, on paper, when the puck was about to drop on the season.

I know early chemistry problems and injuries are a huge factor, but so is effort.

So far, I love:

The Mighty Midgets, Plekanec, Metro, Moen, Gorges, Price.

I like:

Halak, Hamrlik, Spacek, the improvement in Andrei Kostitsyn, the energy of Carle, Pyatt and White, the three games Leach has played.

I dislike:

Maxim Lapierre’s play.

I hate:

The injuries, Fat84, all the ridiculous penalties the Habs are taking, the PP, MAB in his own zone, the Habs shitting the bed and hanging Price out to dry seemingly whenever he’s in goal, Sergei messing up his relationship with the team.

What now?

OB is set to return soon. That should give the Habs a bit of a spark for one game.

Then Hal Gill comes back (towards the end of the month, Gazette says). Bit of a spark for one more game.

Hopefully at some point soon, Habs Captain Of Our Hearts Brian Gionta will be back in the lineup. Bit of a spark for one more game.

Maybe Sergei will get a call up. Bit of a spark for AK46 and whoever centres AK46 for one more game.

All the rest of the games until Markov comes back?

Yeah, we’re fucked.
