The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

Hey, I’m alive~!

So, with the Canadiens in the midst of an improbable 5-game winning streak, I figured I’d pop my head in and say hi. While Jaro Halak has gotten many of the plaudits (and rightfully so, especially with that ridiculous save on Marco Sturm with 3:20 left in the 3rd to ensure the win vs. Boston), this guy has a valid point as well. Dominic Moore is indicative of the type of player that I think Bob Gainey was going for, but could never quite get right – Max Lapierre, Matt D’Agostini, etc.

Whatever the problems this team has (oh please oh please oh please don’t let us get Philly in the 1st round), you can’t fault their heart and character, especially in close games. Nobody on this team is going to get 50 goals or 100 points, Halak isn’t going to win the Vezina, the defense can be ropey at times. But, does anyone other than the Flyers want to play us in the first round? All it takes is Jaro keeping us in it long enough…we have three lines that could theoretically score.

Yes, I’m talking myself into this team. I don’t think we’re going to win the Cup or anything silly like that, but the second round would be a fantastic accomplishment that I’d applaud gratefully.
