Even though the Montreal Canadiens scored seven goals against the Vancouver Canucks last night, it wasn't a walk in the park for them. A few journalists said after the game the defense was just atrocious, and that the Habs are lucky to have left the Rogers Place with two points.
But is there a reason behind the team's recent struggles?
Former NHL head coach Bob Hartley believes so. He said on 91.9FM Sports he thinks there is an important problem with the team, but he just can't put his finger on it:
"The Habs left Vancouver with two points, but they weren't really able to clear the air. I'm unsure whether it's a problem of confidence or leadership. But there's a real problem here."
Yesterday, Hartley also said that he believes Max Pacioretty and Carey Price should hold a meeting with Claude Julien, Marc Bergevin and Geoff Molson to discuss what's going on with the team.
Do you guys agree with him?
