  1. Past hour
  2. Habs acquire Hunter Shinkaruk

    Man I was sure I was gonna open this up and it would say he was traded for McCarron. They were drafted beside each other. The Stockton Heat are not a good development team for anyone but neither was Laval with Lefebvre so hopefully he develops with better coaches. Either way I'm glad to get rid of Rychel. I've known that spoiled brat since Windsor. His dad almost tanked his entire organization to bring him to the Spitfires and when he finally got him, everyone knew that there was an unwritten rule to always pass the puck to Kerby. The joke among the scorekeepers was, "Are you sure that wasn't a goal by Rychel?" anytime Windsor scored. Whatever the case is, I hope we trade Hunter instead of him just leaving. We got a good train going: - Sven Andrighetto for Andreas Martinsen - Martinsen for Kyle Baun - Baun in the Plekanec deal for Rychel - Rychel for Shinkaruk
  3. Habs acquire Hunter Shinkaruk

    Shinkaruk has signed a one-year, two-way deal. He'll get the league minimum of $650,000 in the NHL, $80,000 in Laval, and the contract has a guaranteed payment of $105,000.

  5. Habs acquire Hunter Shinkaruk

    I always liked Shinkaruk as a prospect, though he hasn't panned out. Interested to see what happens here.
  6. Habs acquire Hunter Shinkaruk

    Between this guy and Marcel Chaput, we're doing a good job of vacuuming up Canucks rejects. Shinkaruk was traded by VAN for Markus Granlund, a rare trade the Canucks clearly won (although Granlund is no great shakes either).

    So does Bergevin have a curse on him that he HAS to make a trade at least once every 4 months or else he loses his fashion sense?
  8. Habs acquire Hunter Shinkaruk

    Rychel's the better offensive player while Shinkaruk is the better skater. The Habs seem to be placing more of a premium on speed with some of their depth moves (even going back to adding guys like Verbeek). I wonder now if McCarron who is still unsigned (like Rychel/Shinkaruk) will be on the move in a similar type of swap as well. http://www.habsworld.net/2018/08/habs-acquire-hunter-shinkaruk/ From the Calgary side:
  9. Habs acquire Hunter Shinkaruk

    Hmm, interesting swap of two top 6 AHLers who haven’t quite managed to find a bottom 6 NHL job. Stylistically how how do they differ? I thought they both have nhl level shots and some offensive ability, but am unsure about their defensive games and general hockey IQ. whats the motive behind shipping off newly acquired Rychel?
  10. I'm a big Bartlett fan as well. Glad to see he got a promotion finally. He's the best in sn imo.
  11. Hope he becomes a #1 national broadcaster one day. Best in the business IMO. Nothing against Mike Emerick, but give me Bartlett all day!

    Kane - McDavid - Tarasenko
  14. Habs sign Jesperi Kotkaniemi to his ELC

    Would be a good idea. Concidering how little the habs are shopped as a NHL-team in Europe compared to some other teams I think ots a good start.
  15. Tom Parisi has found a new home as he signed with Cardiff of the EIHL (United Kingdom).

  19. Habs sign Jesperi Kotkaniemi to his ELC

  22. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    Maybe one day a Hab will be on that list
  23. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    Stamkos - Malkin/MacKinnon - Kucherov
  24. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    What line would you create? I'd do Gaudreau-McDavid-Kucherov - speed and skill for days.
  25. Habs sign Jesperi Kotkaniemi to his ELC

    The fact he had never met Jesperi until that charity game and when someone asked him how he felt about it, all he talked about was how he was playing first line and his "little brother" Mikko was third line... I get the feeling he won't be a hockey ops guy. That said, even Saku Koivu as a "Habs Ambassador" for Europe would be a nice role to see him in. Maybe like what Rejean Houle does for Habs alumni but for the European guys so they have Habs representation doing autograph signings or charity games (provide sweaters, logos, photos to autograph, etc.)
  26. Habs sign Jesperi Kotkaniemi to his ELC

    I miss Saku - and would love to see him involved again with the Habs in some fashion.
  27. I think for the competition u could be right but if his familiarity with smaller ice needs work maybe a wee bit of time with JB might not be so bad.

    If you guys hold live fantasy football draft with friends, you might be interested with a game that a friend of mine created. It's on KickStarter for now. Looks awesome. Instead of picking names out of a hat. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/38967838/draft-order-madness-fantasy-football-draft-order-g?ref=555280&token=583f437f
