    We've all lived through them Cuc. Our allegiance can never be doubted. As for your ridiculous number of posts, thank you. You're definitely a hall of famer in that regard. Always poised, composed and thorough. Little side note: I'm a born and raised Montrealer who currently lives and is raising his family in Connecticut. My wife is originally from here. She (like I) were children of greek immigrants who for better or worse were involved in the restaurant industry. When I decided to buy out my inlaws and renovate their legacy store I had to clear out the furnace/storage room. While doing so I came across my personal holy grail. One game used Patrick Roy Sherwood goalie stick from the mid eighties with a broken shaft and an autographed Roy Koho stick from his days in Colorado. I personally lost my sh!t when I discovered them. My father in law couldn't even remember how he got them. He recalls having a customer of his that worked at the Hartford Civic Center who might have brought them to him. But of all the players that funneled through the NHL in the years the Whalers were in the league what are the odds that it would be my hero's? I grew up the biggest Roy fan. Met him at a softball tournament in Joilette in 1987. It was a larger than life experience for an 11yr old me. Safe to say they are both mounted on my office wall.

    Sucks to be Toronto, St. Louis, San Jose, Las Vegas, and Tampa Bay, but at least those teams will have a softer schedule later in the season.

    What a joke that this post would get a down vote.... Posting our 23 man roster to start last season with the changes made to the team to start this season gets a down vote.... what a freakin joke!!

    Uh, would you tear off your front door to repair a leaking window? Trading Danault now would cause far more problems than it would solve.

    The season's only about an hour old so this is earlier than usual for me remembering to start this thread. Discuss the goings-on around the NHL here.

    The 14th Annual HabsWorld regular season prediction contest. Hall of Fame: 2006-2007 Jean won with a prediction of 92 points when the Habs finished the year with 90 pts. If only we could have won that last game. 2007-2008 Adirondack Bud exactly predicted our final total of 104 pts. 2008-2009 Zowpeb won by predicting a strong start followed by a slower 2nd half ending with 99 points. The Habs finished the season in 8th place with 93 points. On September 22, 2008 Zowpeb predicted "I think we'll see a rough patch just past the mid-year point..." Wow! 2009-2010 Joelassister correctly predicted the Habs would finish with 88 points. Honourable mention to kaos who predicted a season record of 39-34-9 (87 pts) while the Habs finished 39-33-10. 2010-2011 Chips produced the all time best prediction. His preseason prediction of 44-30-8 for 96 pts 6th in the East, 14th in the NHL was exactly correct in every aspect. That amazing feat will be hard to duplicate. Honourable mentions went to Seb whose excellent prediction of 44-30-8 for 96 pts. 5th in east, 13th in NHL came up just short; and to Peter Puck who also correctly predicted the Habs would finish with 96 points. 2011-2012 sakiqc Our fearless leader won with his prediction of 37-34-11 for 85 points. The Habs record was 31-35-16 for 78 points. Honourable mention went to Habsfan who correctly predicted that the Habs would score 212 goals. 2012-2013 illWill won by predicting the Habs would finish with a record of 27-16-5 for 59 points. The Habs finished 29-14-5 for 63 points. Honourable mention to PMAC and to former champion Chips who both predicted the Habs to finish with 58 points. 2013-2014 Meller93 exactly predicted the Habs final record 46-28-5-3. Honourable mention to thehabbit who correctly predicted the Habs final point total and just missed getting their record exactly right. 2013-2014 nihliz predicted 50-23-5-4 for 109 points. In fact the Habs finished the season 50-22-5-5 for 110 points. Honourable mentions went to nhfarber who predicted 49-23-4-6 for 108 points and to sakiqc who predicted 51-26-1-4 for 107 points 2015-2016 Chris predicted 40-30-8-4 for 92 points. The injury ridden Habs finished the season 38-38-3-3 for 82 points. 2016-2017 The Habs finished the regular season 47-26-7-2 for 103 points. Using tie breakers: thehabbit had the winning prediction when he predicted 47-25-5-5 = 104 pts and Honourable mentions to kaos and Bluecross. kaos predicted 46-26-6-4 = 102 pts BlueKross predicted 46-24-6-4 =102 pts. 2017-2018 The Habs finished the regular season 29-40-7-6 for 71 points. All the predictions were bad but the least bad was by Dalhabs who won by predicting 42-30-6-4 = 94 pts. 2018-2019 The Habs finished the regular season 44-30-8 for 96 points and 246 goals. The prediction contest came down to the last game of the season, indeed down to the number of goals scored in that game. The winner was BCHabnut predicted 42-27-6-7 (97 points) and crucially 248 goals. Honourable mentions go to: Dalhabs 42-30-6-4 (94 points) and illWill 42-29-7-4 (95 points) 243 goals. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 2019-2020 edition Same rules as last season. Predict a) what the Habs regular season record will be: wins-losses-OTL-SOL b) in what place in the Atlantic Division the Habs will finish c) in what place in the East the Habs will finish d) the total number of goals the Habs will score this season (including 1 goal per shootout win). The winner will be based upon the most accurate prediction of the Habs final points. In the event of a tie bonus points will be awarded for getting the number of wins, number of losses, number of OTL's or number of SOL's correct. The latter three predictions will be used successively to break ties. The decision of Peter Puck is final. Don't forget to separate overtime losses and shootout losses. Entries due before puck drop on Thursday Oct 4 at 7:00pm. Good luck and may the Hockey Gods have mercy on your soul.

    Ha haaa, yeah, I'm an '06 man. Followed in your footsteps. But I have a scary ridiculous number of posts 😒 My 'hope' has been severley constrained after living through multiple failed rebuilds under five different GMs, but hey! Always a kick to see a new season of les canadiens.

    I like Shaw but as much as I’m rarely one to comment on players being over the hill (I love proven veterans), there’s the argument to be made that his style of play won’t last much longer. Concussions have taken a toll on him and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him play 50-60 games this year. I’d like Shaw on our team this year as well but this could have been a situation where it was actually decent asset management to trade him at this specific juncture in his career.

    I think that you greatly underestimate what Danault provides during a hockey game. I wouldn't trust any of these 4 C against the other team's top line.

    These are the PP units they have been working on, with Drouin and Weal as the QBs on one unit and KK/Petry as the QBs on the second unit.

    That is an excellent point. Hiring Bouchard might have been the most crucial move of this “re-set”.

    Nice to be back. Habs rookies and a poor offensive showing in the Rookie Showcase, name a more iconic duo. Sucks when most of your goal scorers are in Europe or in college, but I was hoping for a bit more offensive dominance from the 1st rounders and 2nd year AHLers. Harvey-Pinard would have a contract off his performance here if the Habs weren't flirting so closely with the contract limit. Leskinen might need a whole year in the AHL to get used to north american ice size, but the puck-moving skill is apparent. Evans might be the smartest player on the ice in every game he plays this season. Really feels like Suzuki's potential will best be met at center, but that gaping hole at 2nd line RW on the Habs might be calling his name too loudly. Brook, oof... not a good first impression with the coach. And holy shit is Verbeek ever fast, but too bad that's about it with him tho. Just something to keep in mind: Bergevin made the Pacioretty trade last year on September 10th - shortly after the Rookie Showcase ended.

    Sure he said that but I doubt he really meant it. I doubt the owner is too happy paying close to the entire revenue the Carolina Hurricanes might make this year to a single player in the first year of his contract. Who knows though a smart GM wouldn’t get emotional about it and still look for the best deal available in any event.

    Drouin could become a top liner one day but he isn't one with the Habs so he isn't going to be perceived as one around the league. He ended on a low (terrible) note and then had surgery so teams won't be lining up for him right now. With four years left on what currently looks like an above-market deal based on his production, this isn't the time to move him if you're looking for top value in return.

    Well, if by some miracle the Jets are (a) dumb enough to trade Laine and (b) dumb enough to prefer Drouin over Domi, why, we should be all over that like Ron Hextall on Chris Chelios.
  30. 2 points
    Nope. Max Domi is our best forward and finally fixed our centre problems, plays a solid game and is a guy you win with. Laine is a player you add to play with Domi. Josh Brook is our best defensive prospect and hopefully Weber’s replacement when the time comes. I’m not sure if I would do Domi for Laine straight up.

    Totally agree with this comment. I really liked Shaw but I think he will be a depreciating asset from here on in. MB traded him while his market value was at a peak, good long term move in my opinion.

    I would definitely recommand the Habs to hire you to run their ECHL like you did run your farm in HWL back in the days.

    The Habs woke up after killing off the 5-on-3 but this has been an underwhelming showing by most so far.

    Hudon has been one of the Habs better players tonight.... Hopefully this makes someone want to trade for him.

    More behind the scenes at the draft. Also LOL at the blurring.

    My guess is that they take on a contract from a team who needs room to sign one of their rfas The question is. Will they get an actual player for super cheap? Or are they taking on a bad contract and adding prospects and draft picks.

    Personaly, when I see a post who's been downvoted but did not include any personal attack or very lame comment, I upvote it to try to even that out.
