I tried holding myself back from writing this post because it might offend some people, but decided to do it anyways. The reason for a blog is to be heard, so here I go.
We all know the Habs had a pretty horrible week. They couldn't score 1 goal in 3 consecutive losses to shut outs. I understand people are upset, so am I. I think what hurt the most was the fact that one of those teams was the Boston Bruins and they really laid it on us.What I find more upsetting, is the reaction by Habs fans and some MSM. Although MSM will do whatever they can to create controversy and hence ratings, sometimes they just don't know where or when to stop. Today was blame Gomez day again. Habs have been playing scared all week, zero drive, but it's all Scott Gomez's fault. I'm sure, if they weren't blaming him, they'd blame Andrei Kostitsyn..because that's how they roll. However, enough with them.
What has me upset the most, are the fans. POOR Fans. Habs haven't scored a goal in 3 consecutive games, they've hit a slump at the worst possible time of the year, and YOU think it's because they really don't care. Comments like "we should have gotten a goal scorer (at trade deadline)", "we need a big center","we need a tough guy", "Eff you Gomez and your $7 million", "fire Jacques Martin","this team has no heart"...etc. You know what I mean. I wonder what would have happened if the Capitals had this fan base when they went on their EIGHT, yup 8 game slump? I personally have had enough of this whining. Either support your team, and the players on it, or get out. There are a few players on the Habs that are having horrible seasons, but everyone is picking on Gomez. It's HIS fault he got that contract in New York and it's HIS fault that Montreal was on his trade list. Get over it. He's here and that's that. People seem to forget that he was also crucial in our play-off run last year.
Another issue I have, is the whole "fire Jacque Martin" BS. You know I'm not a fan of his, or his system, but look at what he's done. Look at what he did last year. This year, our injuries are even worse than last year, and yet, he has coached this team to pretty much solidifying a play off position for the last 2 months, at least.We all like to win, but no one wants it more than the players themselves, or even the coaches.
Why are the people kicking the team when they are down? I don't get that or accept it. Everyone has an opinion, but when people support the Habs only when they win and pick on them when they lose, I personally have no time for that.
