    It's hard to have a favourite Hab in 2017-18.

  1. 2017-18 NHL Thread

    I agree. Happy Endings was a great sit-com with no weak links in any of the main 6 characters or writing. I watched all 3 seasons when it was first run and will re-watch them if I'm channel surfing and I find it on.
  2. 2017-18 NHL Thread

    That non-move really surprised me, since Kruger is a former Blackhawk and someone Bergevin must know. Even if he sucks this season, he's a center with a 55% faceoff winning percentage which would lead the Habs. Unfortunately he's signed for the following season at $3M+ which is likely why they didn't claim him. Bergevin has to save cap room for trying to sign Tavares after all, although JT would probably rather play in the KHL than Montreal at this point in his career.
  3. Habs sign Lindgren - 750k per for 3 years

    There was talk that Lindgren's agent wanted a 2 year deal which would bring him right up to UFA status. The Habs pushed for a 3 year deal, which is very wise since it gives McNiven more time to develop in case Lindgren decides he wants to leave Montreal after the 3rd year to try and get a #1 role somewhere. Or maybe Price will want out in around 3 years, and with a significant chunk of his signing bonuses paid and an upcoming expansion draft for Seattle on the horizon, both he and the Habs may decide it's best to go west. He's from B.C. so a move to Seattle may be something he would consider since he'll be a lot closer to home.
  4. Montreal at Arizona - 9PM EST

    Well here are some facts to chew on [and spit out]: - Habs lost to the worse team in the NHL based on points -Habs are the only team to lose twice to Arizona -Price had never lost to Arizona/Phoenix until last night This sums up the season pretty well. Take your pick on which version you prefer https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=this+is+the+end+the+doors
  5. Predators @ Canadiens 7PM

    I like his game tonight. Almost scored on that last chance.
  6. Predators @ Canadiens 7PM

    Plekanec shoots....right in the bread basket. Does the guy know how to shoot at a different spot on the net?
  7. Predators @ Canadiens 7PM

    Nice back check by Scherbak. I think the kids has learned to play defence in the AHL.
  8. Predators @ Canadiens 7PM

    First commercial is the Scotiabank one with Subban.
  9. Predators @ Canadiens 7PM

    I wonder how much money PK put in the board on the Predators dressing room tonight.
  10. Habs Castoff Defencemen Now Rated High

    That's a fair point. He was a high quality prospect that should not have been lumped with Pateryn and Barberio. When I first read this article I missed seeing Sergachev in that list, so I was probably more focused on the other two players when I thought of the thread title.
  11. https://www.tsn.ca/statistically-speaking-pateryn-thriving-in-shutdown-role-1.958990 Interesting how Greg Pateryn, Mikhail Sergachev and Mark Barberio are shown to be statistically performing well, in two different statistical categories. Also interesting that not a single Habs current defenceman made this list.
  12. Bergevin......

    It's starting to remind me of the beginning of the dark ages of the Habs, when Rejean Houle and Mario Tremblay took over, with Houle making an enormous bad trade (P.Roy) followed by several makeup trades, none of which really helped. I fear for the worst, especially with Bergevin and his brain trust in charge.

    Hi Brian. I would be interested in joining if there's a midseason opportunity. If not, then please contact me before next season's league starts up.
  14. Dec. 9, Oilers vs Habs, 7 PM

    Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if Julien did that. I like Galchenyuk, but if I were him and I was still a Hab before turning UFA, I would leave the Habs for another team.
  15. Dec. 9, Oilers vs Habs, 7 PM

    That's a good point. If ever there was a time to start the backup goalie, it was against a "weaker" visitor. Unfortunately Price looked bad on every one of those 4 goals and directly caused one of them by mishandling the puck at a point in the game when there was still a chance for his team to get back in to the game. What's next, a goal by Brandon Davidson ?? I am not looking forward to the upcoming 7 game road trip, not to mention the next game versus NJ.
