Sorry to sy it, but Z is done. Fini. As for Mr. holland. Look at what Stevie has done in 5 short years. His team is big and fast. Your team is small and slow. They have very little skill in comparison. His team is focused with lots of skill. Very well coached I might add. They play with intelligence. Your team, Mr.Holland, is just the opposite.
Stevie also i inherited the likes of Stamkos and Hedman. Put Stamkos out there not 100% and they fizzle out of the playoffs like they did last year.
He does it because he thinks it will help his team get a make up call, or get a pp to help his team.
Hes made some questionable plays against the wings and every other team, but that's not why hes doing it vs Ottawa.
And it was a fair question.
If you read through the thread he was absolutely getting hate.
Some of it was warranted, like talking about how he was jumping up and down on the ice when the call was made on the slash, or when he was throwing a fit in the hallway, but he was absolutely getting hated on.
And he gets a lot of hate pretty much everywhere, not just here.
He's young, an amazing player, and he has an attitude..
It was a legitimate question.
I'm just tired of him. And all the drama that surrounds him. Some love it, and are super into this series. All this drama has me not giving a damn and has turned me away from watching it. My only opinion is that I want the Habs to be eliminated. I get tired of the attention seeking and whining from the team and their fans. Especially living in Canada. It is the worst.
I would rather deal with Leaf fans any day. At least they are always around. Habs fans only show up when the team is winning. You don't hear from them when they lose.
with all the negativity towards our boys (rightfully so) most of us expected this kind of game without the W, and we got that W so hopefully, and I mean HOPEFULLY, we only go up from here. The guys now are seeing that we got goaltending, so loosen the hell up and use them legs.
The way I look at it is what if it were the other way around? That would have been infinitely worse. They stole a win in a game they were dominated. I have no doubt they will look much better in game 2. Babs is too good a coach to not make the right adjustments for the next game. The effort was definitely there, they just need to play smarter.
I don't think many people at all thought the team looked like a playoff team in July. I don't even know if Holland would say that in July. And you're assuming Holland has no say or influence on the roster? He most certainly does. As someone who thinks Ken Holland deserves a middle finger now and again, I'd love to say that's what this is, but I don't think that's the case at all right now.
This is absolutely true. I thought they were, but many folks were in sky is falling meltdown mode back in July. It wasn't until the season started and they played well when all that went away (for the most part).
