    What dramatic ....these are support clowns you pick up on the cheap late summer .

    DK put it best , these are players you draft and develop then dump when they want to get paid .

    They are bottom tier support guys you never overpay

    Double down on the drama eh. Alzner was never only gonna get 850K a year in his free agency year coming off his best season in the NHL.

    I know what you are trying to say, but you've gone off the rails with this.

    Bobby Mac and Dreger reported it was down to the Jets & Habs on UFA day - Jets offered more to Alzner, he chose Habs because of the BC boys.

    Hoping the Habs have learned from some brutal mistakes over the last few. Turnovers, too many men, sloppy.

    Sure , but when you spend it on clowns when your team is going nowhere , why bother .

    A drunk on Rene Levesque Blvd could see that Shaw and Alzner were mistakes .

    How can Ladd, Lucic , Clarkson , and Horton not be mistakes in UFA .

    None of these are saving your job .

    They played that 5-on-3 like Buffalo had five players on the ice.

    The game plan 5 on 3 SUCKS.

    They should be closing the box in, they hang out near the blueline like its a 5 on 4.

    This powerplay is horrible

    Its pitch and catch between Drouin and Petry at the point

    Why aren’t they trying to play more low closer to the net
    Go Habs Go!

    Exactly, playing up top is only valuable if Weber is there

    Another long 2 on 1 after another bad pinch by Oullette.

    Definition of insanity.

    Time and time again this team fails to take the pass away on the odd man rush. The most basic rule on defense.
