    In recent weeks, there has been an uptick in posters that have decided to simply down vote posts based on who the poster is, not the content of the post. Others seem to down vote anything that doesn't exactly match their opinion which is not what the voting system is for. Instead, multiple threads devolved into discussions about the system itself, often accompanied by a rapid series of down votes. At this point, that function seems to be doing more harm than good. Accordingly, I've decided to disable that button for the time being. I'm open to considering re-enabling it down the road but I'm hopeful that this will improve things on here.

    Maybe the wrong board for this and it's a little early but I don't mind the seeing the Blackhawks struggle, would like to see the 2nd round pick they traded to Montreal be an early 2nd round pick.

    He's averaging over 13 minutes a night which is close to what he averaged last year (13:12 this year, 13:44 last year). There's more depth on the roster now so the 30-second gap is justifiable at this stage as the 5-on-5 TOI is pretty balanced (compared to having the Agostino-Chaput-Deslauriers group on the fourth where the top three had to play a bit more). I don't think he's ready for top-six NHL minutes yet so I don't really have a problem with how they're handling him (third line with some PP usage). I'm not a fan of throwing players - especially top youngsters - to the wolves and hoping that it'll work out for the best. I thought he'd be closer to the 15-minute mark on a full-season average with him getting more ice time in the second half as he shows some improvement. At some point, I think they'll try him shorthanded a little bit which would open up a bit more ice time and depending on injuries, there could be opportunities for more playing time there as well. I can understand the frustration in that a top youngster isn't playing a ton but I honestly think it's a prudent decision at the moment so I'm not particularly concerned with his usage yet.

    Well, yes and no, The PK was not as bad as this last season and the personnel on D were basically the same. On the other hand, upgrading personnel does tend to make everything easier. This club has had a glaring need at LD for over two years now, which, in classic MB fashion, has gone unaddressed. (And of course fans cheerled enthusiastically as he sat on his arse, but I digress). I'm pretty confident that adding a major upgrade at D would likely help the PK, as it would help other facets of our game.

    Come on, really? I'll begin to get worried when he is still rockin out 30 point seasons at age 22, and still being sheltered with 12 min of ice time. Until then he is just a kid with immense talent and potential who is honing his craft and learning on the job.
  9. 1 point
    This is just my opinion, so I don't want to argue with anyone, but I don't think he should be in the NHL right now. This kid has huge potential, I just don't want him to lose confidence in himself, at such a young age.

    Chiarot got left in the dust by his man on that offside goal, then completely lost his man in front of the net on the third goal(?). He's too slow to play in the east. He was fine out west, because they play a heavy style out there. Not so much here

    I don't see this team moving Danault. He's necessary. Domi is not good enough in his own zone to go against other team's top lines. His offensive contributions are that of a first liner though. KK is very good defensively in his matchups, but he's 19 years old and in his second year. He may eventually become an elite two way centre, but he's not there yet. Danault provides ~50 points of offence and gets selke votes for his defensive contributions. He's absolutely necessary on this current squad to play that role. As much as Plekanec was necessary from 2008-2017 or so to play that same role. You can't look at his offensive numbers. His role is to be the #1 C defensively and #2 C offensively.... And he's excelled in that role.

    He has been more reliable ever since Weber went down last year and he became the #1 guy.

    No email took long to get. I was using Yahoo mail never got a email but when I switch to my outlook one I use for work i got the email. Oh ok never noticed it. But maybe you should show that progress instead of the voting system. I have noticed some people make some really good post but got downvote because it was a negative toward management. Also noticed only popular posters got a like on their post more times then others. Just some outside prospective for you.

    Hi all even though this is my first post I always look in and read some post from time to time. Thought I would finally sign up. If you're looking for a new system how about the more you post the more you level up. And you show the persons level up instead of how many it times their post have been liked. This way gets more people posting more often and it doesn't become a popularity contest.

    You don't care about votes, yet you down vote people? Funny how that works... And no, I have never down voted you. Anyways, it is a stupid argument, which is the reason the down votes are being dismantled.

    Using emojis instead of +/- or up/down votes may work. But that would not be backward compatible I think disabling the down votes is a good compromise

    I kinda agree with hockeyrealist on this one. Only thing, like you, I'm not convinced that Weber is a bonified #1 anymore. He's probably more a #1B dman at this point. Where I meet Realist, is that I too believe that we should be riding another #1B with Weber. Doing so would greatly improve our chances to see a better Weber. And Mete is not #1B and will most likely never be. Just like what McAvoy provides with Chara, allowing him to do his thing.

    Team leaders in PIM's Tatar 12, Lekonen 10, all stick penalties, Byron has 2 minutes

    Danault about 35 minutes TOI over the two nights, including seven minutes on PK. Weber about 45 minutes including eight minutes on PK. Tired penalty killers are not good penalty killers.

    If they had not taken five minors the PK would not have been as serious an issue. But you have someone sitting in the box, and the team is already tired in the second game of back-to-back, you will lose half a step in every race to the puck. Improve the PK, yes, please. But self-discipline to avoid penalties should be the first step.

    Could tell with those last 2 minutes that the Habs just didn't have anything left. Now they have 3 days off to fix that god awful penalty kill. What the #### happened to it?

    Terrible giving up a 3rd period lead to lose in that fashion. It's time for Julien to send a message about taking stupid penalties as it happens far too often: pressbox Byron for the next game. It can't continue.

    Noon start out here, so figured early wont bother anyone. *Groundhog weekend with back to back vs Blues-Wild. Habs looking for 3rd win in last 4 games. From NHL.com: Players to watch Canadiens goalie Carey Price is one win from passing Sean Burke (324) for sole possession of 27th place on the NHL all-time list. Blues center Brayden Schenn's five-game goal streak ended on Thursday, but he has eight points (five goals, three assists) in six-game point streak. They said it "When you play the Stanley Cup champions, they're always concern that they're going to be ready, especially at home. ... We have to understand that it's going to be a tough challenge and we have to be at our best." -- Canadiens coach Claude Julien "We have to come out and have more energy than we had in Montreal. We played a soft game against Montreal in Montreal." -- Blues coach Craig Berube Canadiens projected lineup Tomas Tatar -- Phillip Danault -- Brendan Gallagher Artturi Lehkonen -- Max Domi -- Paul Byron Jonathan Drouin -- Jesperi Kotkaniemi -- Joel Armia Nick Cousins -- Nate Thompson - Nick Suzuki Victor Mete -- Shea Weber Brett Kulak -- Jeff Petry Ben Chiarot -- Cale Fleury Carey Price Keith Kinkaid Scratched: Jordan Weal, Mike Reilly, Christian Folin Injured: None Blues projected lineup Jaden Schwartz -- Brayden Schenn -- Vladimir Tarasenko Sammy Blais -- Ryan O'Reilly -- David Perron Robby Fabbri -- Tyler Bozak -- Alexander Steen Ivan Barbashev -- Oskar Sundqvist -- Robert Thomas Colton Parayko -- Alex Pietrangelo Jay Bouwmeester -- Robert Bortuzzo Vince Dunn -- Justin Faulk Jake Allen Jordan Binnington Scratched: Zach Sanford, Mackenzie MacEachern Injured: Carl Gunnarsson (lower body)

    Would like to say yes, but if happen to miss playoffs once again it could be end of his reign, but likely not till the off-season. However, it even seems his most ardent critics are becoming quieter with each win.

    My perspective of Shea Weber has a lot to do with his offensive game and more specifically, his slap shot. Shea Weber is not a particularly fast skater but I think he’s actually quicker than some give him credit for, in that he’s far from being a Douglas Murray-like slug. It’s a personal opinion but I feel that when Weber’s offensive game is on, his confidence level goes up and his whole game rises as a consequence. His game was off the first few games this season but that included his patented 110 mph slap shot. He was missing the net, fumbling his reception of certain passes and not even inducing much fear into his opponents who would be forced to block his shots. This ties in with one of the main reasons that I don’t fully mind when it’s somewhat predictable that the puck will end up on his stick for a one timer; someone will still have to have the courage to step in front of his shot, and maybe multiple times. This is not an easy achievement. This is all to say that last game was the first game that I saw with my own eyes, the confident Weber with his slap shot from the point on the power play. I think he had been practicing repeatedly over the past few days. Unfortunately for Erikkson Ek of the Wild, he became Weber’s first casualty this season after blocking Weber’s shot 3 times on the same penalty kill without any reprieve. This left him walking out of the arena in a protective boot around his foot. I do not condone Weber injuring anyone with his shot, but I do take last game as a positive sign for Weber heading into the rest of the season and not only do I expect him to score his first fairly soon, if not tonight, but I expect his overall game to rise as well.

    1) Unless you were in the room, and inside Bergevin's head, how do you know he didn't want Tatar. 2) How do you know what the scouting report was on Domi and whether the team saw something in Domi's 20 games at C with Arizona that showed them he was a better C than Galchenyuk? I didn't like the trade when it was made (but love it now). I'm not willing to say it was luck though. Teams do a lot of work before they make trades and obviously they saw something in Domi and his ability to play in the middle, seeing as he was made a centre from the very start of training camp on his first day here. 3) What trades were available that he could have moved a prospect for? Which ones should he have done? Did you want him to trade Kotkaniemi? Suzuki? Romanov? Seriously, your Bergevin hate fest is tiring. If you actually made good points like some here have that would be one thing, but this is just asinine.

    I’ll open by saying I missed the first half of the game due to work. That being said, the half I did watch, it was the habs game to lose. Barring a few breakaways, we had Tampa on the ropes nearly the entire 3rd. Had some good chances in the 3rd. Vasilevsky stole that game. It’s not a common occurrence to be outshot by 10 and win by 2 goals.

    Are you serious????? It has been said multiple times that Tatar was a throw int, to even out the cap for Las Vegas. Maybe you should look up your points . Also their has been interviews in which he said that teams where asking for top prospects on Montreal in any trades for their top players. Bergevin didn't want to pay the price. All I am trying to say and the whole point of this trend is if you want to not trade your top prospects to get top players that could help you win now...... Why string Price and Weber along on this rebuild. They're getting old let them go try and win a cup now well they're still good enough to be top players in this league. If we're going to wait on development of our young players we're not wining anything anytime soon.

    Dont believe everything said in the media. "We arent trading P.K. Subban" said Bergevin three days before trading Subban.

    To be honest, I think he would be...in the right situation. If I had to guess on what that situation would be, it'd be at a time where the Habs are a legitimate playoff team (not a bubble one) and the player they're getting back is either signed or under team control for 3+ years. Granted, that's a pretty tough set of self-imposed circumstances to work under (very few key players traded in recent years meet the control requirement) but I think that's the perfect storm type of situation he'd be looking for.

    And I think that's probably fine, provided the LD is not an older guy on a hefty contract. Neither Suzuki nor Poehling project to be indispensable superstars. It wouldn't be like trading a 22-year-old Price, like a lot of fans wanted at the time.
