    It's easy to solve language questions by hiring an active francophone President to oversee a GM like Paul Fenton.

    Is this what leafy feels like...
  4. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Max was traded the second they made the trade for Drouin. The fact the team is bad makes it an easier decision for them. Drouin will be the new poster boy for this team just because he is the home town boy.

    Plenty of blame to go around. what caught my eye particularly was in 3rd period, still 3-0 game. Not out of reach yet. 4th line shift actually breaks out of own zone, des lauriers puts a shot off the goalie and out of play. TV time out ensues followed by an offensive zone draw. Who is on the ice? Our 4th line, wtf? Could maybe see it if it was a 4th line that consistently held pressure, established cycle...Maybe then, but habs fourth line has none of that, yet there they are when we need a goal. not that the rest of team is tearing it up but why the heck weren’t one of our offensive lines (if that exists) put out for that face off? De la rose isn’t exactly Mr. BigDrawWinner and hasn’t scored since he was in midget hockey. Lots of terrible going on, but coaching moves like that aren’t gonna kick off a come back. I’ve stopped letting my four year old watch habs games with me as I don’t want him picking up bad habits haha.

    I like Weber. A lot! He is one of my favorite players on the team. And if the team had a Sergachev or Markov type mobile defenseman to make up for his absence, I could, and have, justified the trade. But trading Subban, Serg, Beaulieu and allowing Markov to walk, is a huge failure. Losing all of your mobile defensemen, signing Karl effin Alzner to that silly contract. What are you thinking bergevin? PK was also a huge competitor. He could and would put the team on his back and will out a win. Weber is not that style player. The bad moves that MB made after the Weber trade, (not filling the mobile defense position) actually makes the Subban trade even worse. At this point, I totally regret the trade, and I miss PK almost every game I watch.
  7. Julien vs Therrien

    that's a good point. I never considered it. You used to see it in Boston as well. They would fall to pieces.
  8. Julien vs Therrien

    Thats a positive in the coach's collumn. He can put the players in position to make plays. They don't score the goals, that's talent and thats not the coach to fix, so I certainly see that aspect. On the negative side, this team is emotionally fragile. One goal against shatters them and they fall apart. Thats the coach.

    I thought that was MB and MT
  10. GDT Toronto @ Montreal, 7:00 pm HNIC

    Point taken, just stating what MB has said was the reason. That's how i explained to my kids who still don't understand and miss PK i miss PK when we lose because he would make a loss watchable; I still do not think this team would have been a contender with him in it
  11. Nov. 19/21, Rocket vs Moose

    Second game in a row for him in that spot. 5-2 Manitoba was the final.

    Well, speaking of stinking, the team has stunk out the joint ever since trading Subban (meanwhile, he merely went to game 7 of the Finals). A fitting fate for an organization stupid enough to trade him. This is what happens when you make hockey moves for reasons having nothing to do with hockey.

    And , like the russians, could be "happy with his game" even I when the team was stinking
  16. GDT Toronto @ Montreal, 7:00 pm HNIC

    Because he thought he was bigger than the team.
  17. Julien vs Therrien

    Julien has deployed a system that, for the most part, has had the habs out playing their oponent for a large chunk of this year. Who the hell are his top defense options? That is not his fault. I am a Julien fan so far this year. He didn't build this team. He is just working with what is given.

    Now we are getting somewhere---- keep Marc ----- replace him with another Francophone ------ defeat the notion that he must speak French, and hire the best person available

    Why did we trade PK again?
  20. Bergevin......

    http://www.nhltradetracker.com/user/trade_list_by_GM/Marc_Bergevin/17/1 Was just looking at Bergevin's trade history, and I really can't complain with the trades he made up until June 2016 (when he appeared to have started to kinda hate his team.) Prior to that, there aren't many deals I'd consider "bad", with most of the trades either being a win or a wash. Even the headscratchers had extenuating circumstances behind them (like Kassian for Scrivens). But most of those deals are best described as "tinkering." What there aren't many of are trades of long-term positive change. Prior to 2016, he made no trades of any kind of impact to the core of the team, except Petry (who was no guarantee to re-sign with the team - he was an unrestricted free agent when he was traded for.) His only real big additions have been Danault, Shaw, Weber and Drouin, all in the past 2 years. I have thoughts on this, but they're percolating in my head right now... I'll swing back on this another time. But I do find it interesting that Bergevin didn't really want to change the team at all until June 2016.

    Quintal, Brisebois, Wilson, Roy, Timmins, Carriere, Mellanby, Loiselle, Non-francophones include Paul Fenton and Mike Futa. All choices before one should even drunkenly consider Pierre McGuire.
  22. Julien vs Therrien

    Aghhh, that would be aweful.

    What is one man doing "owning" a hockey team?
  24. GDT Toronto @ Montreal, 7:00 pm HNIC

    Uncle Bob! I love uncle Bob. Actually .. I just stopped by to check the cells on suicide watch.... All accounted for... We certainly need at least one corpse. You know.. to feel better.. like that...

    Only if we get more than a third pair defensan for you. Sorry, I didn't mean it that way :/

    It's a sad day when we are talking about replacing the incompetent clown Bergevin with the incompetent blatherskite Macguire or the even more staggeringly incompetent narcissist Roy. I mean...that's just a pretty sad frigging day. If any of those three jackanapses is in the chair come next September, it will be the final confirmation that the Habs have gone all the way down the path of the Ballard Maple Leafs - a circus instead of a serious hockey team. I floated Koivu's name in half-jest a while back, because I really do think (on the basis of little more than outside observation of his comportment over 15 years) that he has the brains and the leadership quality to run an effective operation. But it's true that he has no managerial experience and it'd be a "left-field" move; my only defence is that Serge Savard was in a similar situation and did pretty well, precisely because he was the kind of man who is well-suited to the role. Anyhow, I'm not gonna push what is essentially a fan fantasy. The wider point is that we need to replace Bergevin with SERIOUS PERSON, not an arrogant loudmouth who hasn't made hockey decisions in decades, or a narcissist who drove his last franchise into the dirt.
