    Good start, ugly ending. That Schlemko giveaway was really rough.
  3. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    Need to get their shit together.
  4. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    lol at Randorf sounding like Lumière every time he tries to say Hudon.
  5. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    Byron out of position and pastranak has an open net. 1-1
  6. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    Nice play by Jerabek on the goal, even if he seemed to be moving in slow motion. Weak play by Patches gives it right back.
  7. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    MAX PACIORETTY five straight games with a goal. Actually might be Jerabek's goal.

    The realist sees a higher draft pick being more valuable. The competitive heart wants a win, especially against the Bruins. I can never hope for the Habs to lose.

    First game alert!! Please win for this kid..

    Bingo 1) If Price is a 940 goalie and there is no injury the Habs are in the playoffs right now. 2) No team in the league is paying Pacioretty more cause his last contract was a discount. It doesn't work that way.
  12. New practice lines

    Pacioretty will ask for at least $7M. Not worth it.
  13. New practice lines

    So if Price puts up a .940 sv% (the best sv% of all time?) he needs to score 40 goals as well to win 40 games....okay then And like I said, the next negotiations will have nothing to do with what he is getting paid right now. Of course he is going to demand a lot of money, and that will be based on performance, not because he feels he didn't already make enough up to this point.
  14. 2017-18 NHL Thread

    Bergevin was very high on Benn. Like people already forgot the top four defenceman talk. Alzner was hyped as a top four defenceman as well who can play first pair as he did in Washington. You add the underrated Schlemko and Stanley Cup winning Streit and that's why Bergevin thought he improved from Markov/Beaulieu/Emelin/Pateryn. He knew he couldn't replace Markov but the other guys would make up for the loss. The issue too many forgot is when Markov was a hab the team was still down one left handed defenceman who could crunch top four minutes. So losing Markov meant they now needed two. And Bergevin thought Benn and Alzner would do it. Then they got too excited about Mete. Now they are stuck with the original analysis.
  15. 2017-18 NHL Thread

    Hey, I kept on reading how Alzner and Schelmko would improve our defence and how there was no reason we couldn't be as good as last year with alzner/schlemko taking over the Emelin/Beaulieu spots and how much of a boon Drouin would be to the offence. Well Alzner/Schlemko have 9 points between them, while Emelin/Beaulieu have 12. And Drouin... lets not go there.

    Gauthier is not the GM and Martin is not a head coach. MB will probably land somewhere in a lessor role, but here is no way he is getting another GM gig on a non-French team.
  18. New practice lines

    Market value will be over $6M and he will probably be looking for and get someone to shell out $7M+.
  19. New practice lines

    Bingo. Give yourself a smelly cigar. The habs as constructed are Carey Price and Carey Price. If he wins 40 games they'll get in the playoffs and he is a Hart contender. If he doesn't our suckage shows and we are at best a bubble team and most likely miss the playoffs. And yes, as the cucamber stated, I said "our captain has a year left and will want a big contract as a UFA, because he negotiated a crappy deal last time around." MacPac will want to make up for agreeing to a contract that left him underpaid for 6 years. The only thing wrong with the MaxPac contract at $4.5M was that it wasn't for the max 8 years, otherwise, that was one of the 3 or 4 good moves MB made - although, I think MaxPac coming off a concussion and a slwe of injuries early in his career, probably rushed to sign a long term deal, rather than MB lowballing him and winning. As for Weber, the injury may not be age related, but we are going to start seeing more injuries as he gets older. That's just natural. We aren't taking about a smooth skating Lidstrom or Neidermeyer here. Pronger was done at what 37? Weber is signed until he is 42. Seabrook looks done at 32 and his play rapidly declined in the past 2 years.
  20. New practice lines

    Even so, Pacioretty's next contract has absolutely zero connection to his current one. That's not how it works. He will get paid and rightfully so, it doesn't matter at all that he played under market value all these years.
  21. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    I literally can't explain how I feel when I look at this current line up, there are players playing too high up in the lines, players playing too far down, players playing center that should be wingers, players playing wing that should be centers. It is a big fist sized pillsbury dough, filled with laughter, sarcasm, confusion, frustration and sorrow, it might just be a new path to the darkside if you ask Yoda. I took a video of my initial reaction and it looked something like this...
  22. I agree. I think even management agrees since they've been trying to move him. Unless they're asking for some form of value in return (and maybe that's what's holding things up), there just doesn't seem to be any interest. Bergevin's history has been that he will move prospects who have fallen out of favour pretty quickly without asking for much of anything in return though so I have a hard time thinking that he's asking for much here. I think the fact there hasn't even been a lateral swap of fifth string goalies (I've been expecting a Fucale for Phillipe Desrosiers deal for a while now) says a lot about how far his stock has fallen around the league.
  23. New practice lines

    Well Pierre Gauthier has 2 cup rings recently, Jacques Martin does as well, so future is unknown and coming from the most pessimistic Hab Fan I know of, your prediction really is to be taken with grain of salt. Never is long time.
  24. New practice lines

    Pretty sure he meant the deal was crappy from Pacioretty's point of view
  25. 2017-18 Rocket/Beast General Season Thread

    I just think it would be better for both parties if he got a new start.
  26. 2017-18 Rocket/Beast General Season Thread

    Because at least 4 goalies in our system have outplayed him.... Lindgren, McNiven, Hawkey and Primeau are all better prospects.
  27. They don't really need the 50-man spot that much as they're at what, 44? That's more than enough room to sign Evans to a 17-18 deal once his NCAA season ends, perhaps another college guy or two, and still have room under the limit for the summer. They may free up another spot or two if they move a rental player as well. The problem is, they've been trying to trade him for a while now and haven't had any takers so even as a throw-in, I don't think he'd carry any value at all to another team unless they happen to be depleted in goalie depth at the time.
