  1. I'm still available. I'm very defensive, like to hit people and most of my friends and family find me very offensive. And as you may have suspected I'm cheap.

  3. If we were to lose all our remaining games. And Oilers, Jets, Flames, Canucks and Sens all were to win all their remaining games, I think we would end up in last place. Well, if it were possible, at least we'd get a lottery pick out of it.

  4. For all of our outrage, the team is still very solidly in a playoff spot. So we should cool our jets a little. Lord knows I’ve had my differences with Bergevin, but I would appoint him GM into perpetuity before I hire Roy or Maguire. As far as MB goes, he did a stellar job this summer. His real problem is the wider strategy of “retooling” when the only clear-cut elite talents in the organization are Price and Weber. This always raised the very real danger that the old guys would decline before the young guys could develop enough to be reliably impact players. And this is **exactly*

  7. The Leafs drafted Reilly, Marner and Matthews in the top-5, all franchise cornerstones - contrast them with our top-5 whiffs Galchenyuk and Kotkaniemi. Subban is the only real star we've drafted during my two decades plus as a Habs fan.

  8. I’ll bite on that one I can still defend Weber, and the D, because on the goals I saw (didn’t watch the whole game) it seems like the forwards are not supporting the D wingers up high or near the boards pinning an adversary or covered and the center skating around in circle and late on the play Also, forwards seemed to be waiting for the puck and hitting center ice from a stopped position; resulting in a turnover, so the D were staying back and not joining the rush lack of structure and lack of F support exposes slower D like Weber

  9. That’s why unless we have a real good playoffs, I think we need to totally rebuild the D. Keep Petry and Romanov and tear down the rest. There maybe teams that need to move a good dman before the expansion draft. Would Dumba, Ellis, Ekholm, Dunn, be possibilities as guys that couldn’t be protected?

  15. Pierre Lebrun says in the first intermission that Bergevin wasn't in on many forwards as he didn't want to block the spot for Cole Caufield, who will be called up before the season ends.

  16. I think he will have a long NHL career ... but as a 5,6,7 on an average team. If he gets in a top 4 again, it’s because it’s a crap team. He isn’t more than an injury fill-in on a top tier team.

  17. That's correct and this is the rumour thread so you definitely posted on the right thread.

  18. He doesn't need to score many points to fit in with them. If they put him with Tavares and Nylander, he can be the defensive presence and do the dirty work around the boards to complement those two. Toronto really only has one of those in their top-nine in Zach Hyman who fits in great with Matthews and Marner for that reason. Now both of their high-skill lines can have that presence. He's not a high-end scorer but he's a great complementary fit.

  19. Another vicious head shot today by Reeves today. That’s the type of hit that should be a minimum 15 games for someone with no record. For a guy with Reeves record it should be much more severe. Which of course the DPS being the joke it is, means at most Reeves probably just get a slap on the wrist.

  20. People are really blowing up this leadership thing as a detriment to Weber’s profile. Weber brings leadership, that’s true. One can tell simply by the way he handles specific situations, the words he speaks, as well as his actions. With that being said, who is saying that leaderhship is the only quality Weber brings? The only people I hear saying that, are those who are trying to bring Weber down. And then we compound that reality by coming up with arbitrary “values” that Weber’s leadership “costs”. “My personal opinion is that Weber’s leadership accounts for 50% of his human being s

  24. 1. I only came to Canada in 1981, so I have no recollection of the Leafs ever being relevant 2. Since then, the Leafs have not been anything more than media hype even during the Wendel Clark and Mats Sundin periods

  25. JONATHAN DROUIN IS A USELESS PIECE OF TRASH....all this talk from some on this board about his vast improvement is pure and utter BS. After almost costing them a goal, he flat-out does...he put that great poke-check by Allen right to a Jet with yet another of his 'brilliant' blind one-touch passes. 🤬

  26. Historical rivals: Boston Bruins -> original 6 team, has played against the Canadiens the most during playoffs. Canadiens (a.k.a Habs) eliminated then in the playoffs for a long stretch. Often they got into general brawls since fighting is allowed in NHL Quebec Nordiques (before they moved) -> both teams played 2hr away from each other, they had rival breweries as sponsors and rival media conglomerates fueling the narrative for years. Rivalry took off when the Nordiques started contending in hte playoffs and finally eliminated the Habs. Feud pitted family members against each o

  27. I'd just throw this in there after watching the kid last night. I think he'd fit better on a line with KK and Lek rather than Danault and Tatar. Better set up centre, A speedy winger with great defence, and a pure sniper. Move Staal to wing or centre on 4th line. I wasn't so sure about Caufield playing NHL hockey this season, but that performance last night was no fluke, AHL defenders had no answer for his skill, speed and shot. The kid is an NHL player no doubt.

  31. We lost a guy who had 14 goals for the rest of the regular season, have a sputtering powerplay, and a bum with 2 goals is currently occupying a top 6 LW slot. I'm not sure what time we would be waiting for exactly that could be more perfect than right now.

  32. Google thinks highly of CC's goal scoring ability. Not even Ovechkin has that as his sub-title... Or thinks he is Bradley Cooper.

  36. Off the ice? Im not spending 8m on what he brings off the ice. Thats crazy. The leadership is a nice bonus, but the on-ice production has to match the contract cause you can find a corey perry or joe thornton or other vet to bring leadership at a vet minimum or close to it.

  38. Shots mean absolutely nothing if you don’t score on them. Like the game vs the Oilers on Monday, shots were something like 15-5 for the Habs the end of the first period, score was 1-0 Oilers.

  40. I would without question sit Drouin until he is ready to work every shift like a professional or until he is traded. Drouin is lazy as hell and I’m sick of his excuses. I think we are better than your post suggests but this team is lacking accountability. How many games this season have we not even shown up? Too freaking many i in no way want some sort of Torts nonsense but players like Drouin should be held accountable and they aren’t.

  41. Well, Matthews is a top 5 player in NHL, he missed all of 3 games, still has 28g & 48pts, so WTF are you talking about?

  43. If he does have an uptick during the playoffs, I don’t expect it to be simply because he is a declining asset and that is what declining assets do. Weber is much more than a #4 defenseman. His advanced stats, as you asked, have him pegged roughly around the 30th-40th place in the league for all corsi and fenwick statistics amongst defensemen. This would put him on the top pairing on any team based on those statistics. This all holds true despite the fact that he plays the 56th most minutes amongst defensemen. Even with his minutes at 56th in the league, this is still top pairing mi

  44. The leafs feast on defensive turnovers so we need to be careful tonight. leafs have a whole lot of firepower and their newest sniper Galchenyuk is hoping to make us look like fools. Hoping Captain Crosscheck can make mathews cry again and Allen needs to be on his game. I consider this a great test for us. Are we pretenders or contenders? I expect Anderson to be a beast tonight Go Habs Go
