  1. Inch for inch, pound for pound the Pocket Rocket is the toughest player I've ever seen to lace up his skates in the NHL. My hockey days go back to the big dynasty of the late 50's, so I've seen a lot of players in the NHL, and none were tougher than #16 Playing in the shadows of "the Rocket" and "Le Gros Bill" Henri , unfortunately never quite received the attention or the accolades he truly deserved. But anyone who watched him play, that understood the fine points of the game could see just how good he really was. And, just how valuable he was to the team (Toe Blake once referred to

  3. I think that’s two different issues. We lost the sergachev trade. Fine. It’s done. Sucks - but it’s done. but 5.5 for a 50+ pt 2nd line forward? That’s the going rate. As soon as a player gets 50 pts a season that instantly means there are at least 30 games where they got 0 points. We aren’t even talking the odd time the player has a 2 or 3 point night. And those nights Drouin doesn’t score - he looks terrible (tho the beginning of last season, before the injury, he wasn’t floating) Drouin is what he is. A top 6 forward. At 5.5 per, that’s not outrageous.

  5. Referees for the 'Dollar Bill’s Discount Money Lenders North Division' as CC so eloquently put it: Kendrick Nicholson Brad Meier Eric Furlatt Kevin Pollock Marc Joannette Graham Skilliter Chris Schlenker Mitch Dunning* Michael Markovic* Corey Syvret* *-AHL referees There's also a list of linesmen that will be restricted to North Division duty but I wanted to mention the referees at least so everyone could rejoice in not seeing Chris Lee's name on there.

  9. Well, my daddy left home when I was three And he didn't leave much to ma and me Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze Now I don't blame him 'cause he run and hid But the meanest thing that he ever did Was before he left he went and named me Sue (...) And he said, "Son, this world is rough And if a man's gonna make it he's gotta be tough And I know I wouldn't be there to help you along So I gave that name and I said goodbye I knew you'd have to get tough or die And it's that name what helped to make you strong"

  10. Yeah - I don’t see a season or playoffs happening - given current situation it seems highly unlikely and frankly unless there is a drastic improvement in containment, i think it would be irresponsible. Even if they decided to continue without fans, all it takes is one player to be infected without symptoms to have a pretty ugly situation develop. my company has us working at home and there are few essential operational roles that there is a skeleton crew in the office and at operational sites and they get their temperature checked before entry into the premises- and even than ther

  16. There is a certain kind of cruelty in making a fully fledged member of Team Tank The Season make so many Game Day Threads in a row. I am lodging a formal protest to dlbalr on this grievous punishment. Now as we all know, Brian is a brutish, sadistic fiend whose sole joy in life is causing us misery. But if we stand together we can end this draconian practice of winning-streak GDTs for Team Tank members, so WHO IS WITH ME?!

  19. Really? I thought it was a bad luck play on the tying goal. Had it not hit the ref, there wouldn't have been a goal. Also, Drouin did get two assists in this game...I wouldn't qualify that as a POS, but that's just me. Don't get me wrong, never been a huge fan of Drouin, but i thought he played a decent game yesterday, that's why i'm a little surprised by your assessment of his game last night!

  28. I think we have room for one big contract this offseason, not two. If I'm looking for a big contract, I'm after a game breaker at wing, not a defenceman. I think Kulak, Chiarot, Romanov, and Mete.... is a good 1-4 on the Left, and you have Weber, Petry, Juulsen and Fleury on the right.

  38. Which is why I said 12 games instead of 14 or 13. Heck, if they want to improve Laval for their playoff push and send Ouellet or Alzner down, get Markov out of Russia and get him to 1000 regular season games as a Hab. Nothing wrong with good PR in a lost season.

  39. This is a load of BS if you ask me. We have the picks that we can make trades and UFA's will come here. I think we need to add depth to the LW and LD and we will be ok. Our problems has always been depth when it comes to talented skill players. I have never seen a GM rely on a farm system as much as Bergevin that's has no NHL talented players that could fill holes when called upon do to injuries.

  40. I never understand why we should move petry or Tatar for a pick that we HOPE in 3-4 years becomes at least as good as the petry or Tatar we now have. Those are exactly the types of players we’d need to overpay to acquire next year if we didn’t have them. Losing them creates holes. Losing them guarantees we’ve thrown in the towel on next year already. Keeping them means we can go for it next year and still move them should we eventually throw in the towel next year. this was not poor asset management. What it was was not giving up on next season before it even started.

  41. If the Habs are a playoff team next year, that’s a good thing. I don’t subscribe to the mentality that we should predict the future as negative under all circumstance. If a great trade offer comes up involving Petry or Tatar, I’ll evaluate then and am willing to be happy about either one of them being moved. Keeping Tatar and Petry by the next deadline doesn’t guarantee a negative ending to the story though and if they help us have a good team next year, I wouldn’t complain. It feels odd to even have to defend that point. In the end, I think either pathway can have the potential to

  42. So this turned into a brilliant deal. Bergevin turns a 4th rounder in 2020 - into a 2nd rounder in 2020 and a conditional 4th in 2021. Good luck to the MB haters trying to find something to criticize here.

  47. Is there a stat that differentiates between a Nick Cousins and Alex Ovechkin shot in the slot? It seems like the Habs always have excellent scoring chances but can't convert, but then the opposition merely buries it when given the opportunity.
