Typical Canadien negativity, he didn't fail today.
It's Canadian. It's also not negativity (not that there wouldn't be a multitude of reasons to be negative in Frank's case), it's realism. It's not like he can be expected to just repeat perhaps the greatest performance in a tennis match he's ever had, especially considering his history of failing in big situations.
If I remember correctly, though, you were the one who said Pospisil was in better form and should have been put in over him. Fortunately for the team, Laurendeau made the right choice.
