    Habs Watch - Uncertain times

    Stardate 5123.5

    What is the answer? I have watched the beloved Habs drop from the top of the conference to 8th, barely hanging on to a playoff spot. Last night, another story unfolded that has been typical of late. No shots. Well okay, there were some, and they even got a few goals from them, but seriously, you will NOT win in the NHL with 6 shots, 4 shots or 3 shots in a period.

    There have been injuries sure. Every team has injuries. The League is so competitive now, it doesn't matter too much anyways. Why the lack of offence? And why so many goals against? Theodore has been terrible in my opinion, though of course it isn't all his fault. But to be a superstar goalie means you have to make a difference when the rest of the team is on the ropes. Simply put, he isn't. Another 5 goals against game last night. 6 goals against the game previously, against the "mighty" bottom of the conference Penguins.

    Montreal has lost 8 of the last 10 games, being outshot by a 337 to 299 margin and outscored by a whopping 41 to 28 spread.

    So what are the answers? Shake up the team with a big trade? Theodore perhaps? What about Claude Julien? The coach usually gets the axe before a star player is traded... I think somethign HAS to happen however... and soon, before a promising season is destroyed.
