  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.

  2. Weber has clearly declined, and significantly in the defensive end of the ice. The xGA stats show this. The shots he is giving up are coming from high danger areas more and more. Thats an issue with a nearly 8 million cap hit, so yes, I'd leave him unprotected.

  6. I don't think Foligno is an upgrade on Armia. I'd just keep Armia. I still think, even after Gallagher's injury, that the need is on defence.

  7. I had a few minutes this morning so I put together a quick piece on Montreal's bonus overage situation and how it could affect their deadline plans: https://www.habsworld.net/2021/04/montreals-bonus-situation/

  8. It's an extremely intriguing game for the Rocket tonight as we all get to see how Charlie Lindgren fares in his first game action in six weeks. Oh, and some top prospect guy is making his pro debut as well... On the injury front, only Jan Mysak made the trip so Laval isn't getting much help from the infirmary. (And as it turns out, he's not playing tonight anyway.) Blandisi - Poehling - Teasdale Veilleux - Weal - Caufield Lucchini - Dauphin - Harvey-Pinard Verbeek - Hillis - Pezzetta Schueneman - Brook Bisson - Olofsson LeGu

  10. 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.

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

  12. You are right...he's not a Gallagher replacement, but he's damn sure looking like a stellar Drouin replacement.

  16. 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.

  17. And the first goal was Edmundson getting caught up ice and not having enough speed to get back. Need to get a guy who can skate and isn't 5'8"

  19. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. The whole gamble of the “retool” was that there would be a window where the young players were coming on as impact players and the vets were still effective. I was sceptical all along about this, and I do suspect that it will prove the Achilles Heel of the whole enterprise. Imagine if we had the Weber of 3 or 4 years ago out there; it’d be another story. But we don’t. That said, I think it’s working out better than I anticipated, mostly because MB was able to add so many impact pieces in the offseason. Although TO is consistently better than we are, who knows? Add that

  23. 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?

  26. Also his PP production being down is also part of his mobility issues. He used to be better at moving laterally, or moving forward and backward in his spot, to get himself around shot blockers and create more of a shooting lane. His limited mobility has made the opponents more effective at getting into shooting lanes and blocking his shots.

  27. 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

  28. I didn’t say get rid of him, first of all. What I do say is that he should be treated like any other player, assessed primarily in light of what he brings to the ice relative to his cap hit. The leadership stuff is mostly overblown garbage; Perry probably provides 95% of the “leadership” Weber does for a fraction of the cost (plus, unlike Weber, he actually knows how to win). Second, the “confirmation bias” argument is a pile of crap. This has nothing to do with The Trade.The eye test suggests significant regression from Weber this year plain and simple. I don’t know what the advan

  29. Sorry, you don’t use $8 mil in cap space for a mascot, and I never believed in 50% of that mystical crap around Weber anyway. Mr. Leader has never won anything in 15 years in the league, nor even come close. You can get much cheaper veteran leadership (and what is Gallagher, chopped liver?) Weber’s value depends overwhelmingly upon his play on the ice.

  30. 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

  33. Bad luck re: Gally, but injuries happen. If Caulfield is ready to replace Gally’s offence (!!!) then why is he in Laval in the first place? If he’s not ready, then he won’t suddenly become ready just because Gallagher got hurt. So he might be able to come up and add some jam for a few games as a result of rookie enthusiasm, but the likelihood is that he is not a 4-8 week solution. I’m not even sure you *have* to “replace” Gallagher. When injuries happen, the normal answer is that you ask the rest of the team to step up. It’s not as though Gally

  34. And that's fine - if this is a year where they think they can do some damage, taking the hit is justified. I'm just pointing out that this isn't something that will magically cure Montreal's cap woes and that there is a cap penalty to keep in mind for next season.

  35. Laval is finally back on home ice after an eight-team trip out West and will have some reinforcements with Jordan Weal returning plus Xavier Ouellet and Laurent Dauphin being sent down from the taxi squad for this one. They take on Stockton who they swept in their four-game set last month. (Lines are from last game) K. Bennett - Ruzicka - Phillips Pettersen - Gawdin - Philp Beck - Froese - Tuulola Estephan - Simpson - Zavgorodniy Mackey - Yelesin Lerby - Leslie King - Hamilton Sparks (Lines are bas

  40. Yes, it's another matchup with the Heat, the sixth between the two sides in two and a half weeks. Cale Fleury is out for this one with an injury with Gustav Olofsson coming down from the taxi squad to take his place. Brandon Baddock will have the game off as he was recalled to the taxi squad.

  42. If Staal slots in for Perry... Perry bumps one of Byron/Lehkonen and you keep Evans as fourth line C. The Suzuki line would be the one with 2 Cs. and because Staal is LH and Suzuki RH, they can flip on faceoffs to literally always take draws on their strong side.
