In the right direction

In the right direction

It is unexpected and surprising. Rarely have we seen so many positive elements fit so precisely into the right box in such a short amount of time.

It is very beautiful to see. It’s been a long time in Montreal that we haven’t seen so many hands in the dough. No brawlers, no hapless, and much less irritants, the youngsters naturally took over.

Very quickly, trust was gained around Captain Suzuki. There are no ten matches on the counter and the correct ingredients in the recipe are obvious. We knew about Caufield, but no one saw the Robidas department, Guhle’s safety, Harris’ rapid development, Xhekaj’s joints and courage coming.

In the concept of reconstruction, younger workers were not expected to lead until now. And Slavkovsky, the older little brother that everyone wants to boost. the little boy he loves Montreal, he says it and it’s not fake (fictional).

In life as in sport, confidence is a crucial component and we feel, we see that it is taking hold. We work in the right direction and the results appear quickly.

On Thursday against the Coyotes, when the captain almost fooled the opposing goalie on his penalty shot, the camera showed us the reserves on the bridge. They were doubled over, giddy with laughter, saluting their leader’s great success. A little arrogant, navels green, but he smelled of team spirit.

Silly faces

I write this article before yesterday’s game against the Stars and the beautiful fairy tale may have been crushed. Some nights it will happen and no one is claiming that the Montreal Canadiens will go to the Stanley Cup next June.

However, it is positive and they are bringing fun to the stadium. When things go wrong, we don’t hesitate to say so, so when things go wrong, we have to acknowledge it too.

Hockey has its theatrical side, and it was Michel Bergeron who, several years ago, said that he liked players who made faces. Yes, when he is going to sneak into the corner against one or two rivals, when he hits a hole in front of the net, when he hits an opponent, we want to see the effort, the aggressiveness, the bitterness on his face. You have to feel this desire to win the little battles one by one.

Will Martin St-Louis be able to maintain his doctrine for a long period? His salad is selling well so far. When the extra effort and getting high has become a habit, the coach can delve elsewhere.


Coincidentally, it is the young people who have taken a lot of weight off the veterans and who can only help this new entity that is being born. If the trend continues, it will not be easy to play at the Bell Centre. They don’t let go. From now on, juvenile mistakes are allowed, but not laziness. Cultural change works, it shows.

For the points, the classification and the series, we will see it later. At the moment we build plank by plank and start leveling.
