The recent taxiing of the Montreal Canadiens coincided with a defensive team that had lost its feathers and was worried for a month. In addition, Brett Kulak was the only guard to hit a target in April and has been absent for a week.
See the video above.
When analyzing TVA Sports on Sunday (the day after Calgary’s 5-2 loss), he said: “The more improved, the more we can see that the defender’s previous speed is not enough to face defeat!”
According to Steven Finn, the Hubbles are often trapped in their area for too long. This was in two matches against the Flames.
“The first level and transition game to leave the area is not obvious. This is one of the reasons why we don’t attack quickly from the opponent’s blue line.
“It is difficult for us to create extra numbers and good scoring opportunities.”
The former Nordic team captain also believes that other teams want to take advantage of the weaknesses of Montreal’s defense.
“They realize that Canadians are very large, which will cost you a heavy price for the country. But this is not a group of fast defenders.”
Among the six regular defenders in the top 6, the +/- column indicates that everything has not progressed well in the past month: Jeff Petry (-17), Shea Weber (-7) and Ben Chiarot (-7) and April 1 The difference of -31 between January and April 24 reached an astonishing level.
“Except for Alexander Romanov, they are all at a disadvantage. Despite the fact that the goalkeeper’s performance is still difficult,” Mike Bossi said. According to him, Monday’s meeting against the Flames was nothing more than a barometer.
Finally, Bossy believes that general manager Marc Bergevin overestimated the center player before the start of the season after showing a lot of hope in the playoffs last season.
The playoffs made the deal misrepresent the Canadians. We left us with the impression that we can take Nick Suzuki and Jesperry Kotkaniemi away from the pole, which is correct. Obviously, we are incorrect! “
