  1. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    The Blue's improved their team won a cup Pittsburgh is always trying to address their team needs Toronto has address team needs this Tampa makes changes and address team needs San Jose does the same Florida is going to be better with the move's they made to address team needs Vancouver made changes to address needs Then you got Bergevin who does nothing. He took over a team that was one player away from maybe wining a cup and basically blow it up.

    Lol that's a joke. Are you a family member of Bergevin or something 🤔
  3. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    My big issue with Bergevin is that he fails to address weaknesses on the team. He doesn't address them through trades or through free agency. This is why this team does a tail spin the last 2 months of the season and when we get injuries to key players. And if we do get into the playoffs you can really see our teams weaknesses when we play physical teams with speed. I gave him credit on the Domi trade, and I also give him credit on drafting the last 3 years since he started drafting skill and speed over size and grit. But as long as he doesn't address our teams weaknesses we will always be a team that needs to fight down to the last game of the season to see if we get into the playoffs.

    I think a big reason for that is match ups in a 7 game series rather than just a 1 and by type of game. In the regular season teams don't care as much with match ups or shutting down a player, as much as they do in the playoffs in a 7 game series. That's why our teams always get exposed for their weaknesses in the playoffs.

    Edmonton has had no direction or identity for years now that will change with Ken Holland and Dave Tippett runing things. The same could be said for Buffalo and you can add New Jersey to that mix all they need is to add a goaltender to that mix to put them over the top.
  6. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    Ok so this got downvote 2x's, I would like to know how people think our team is in better shape than Edmonton or Buffalo? If both these team's get goaltending they can make a run at the cup. I have more faith in Ken Holland wining a cup with Edmonton way before I do with Bergevin wining a cup in Montreal.
  7. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    Both those teams are closer to wining a cup then we will ever be if we

    We can never rebuild a team properly because we have to give media and fans false hope to keep them happy. Instead of a retool this should of been a rebuild plan. If management is hoping that our young guys will make a impact that means they're not pushing for a cup run and if they're not pushing for a cup run theirs no need for Price and Weber. For Weber we can get a top young player plus a 1st round pick now for him maybe even more if we eat some of his cap hit so team's would be more willing to give up a higher price for him. Same as Price playoff teams would give up a lot to get him. I would rather us finish at the bottom and get a top 5 pick ever year for 3-4 years then just missing the playoffs and get a 15-20 pick ever year, like we have been doing. Just look at what happened with Markov. We should of traded him sooner but we didn't kept him on the team, then we just let him go. We ended up with nothing and still feeling the effects of it. By the time our young players will be ready to make a impact in the NHL we will be looking at the same situation with them like we did with Markov. They will both either retire or walk away from the team leaving us with nothing and a big hole to fill.

    Its this way of thinking why we will always be nothing more than a bubble team.
  10. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    That's exactly my point if we're building up our young talent and prospects we have no need for Price and Weber, trade them now get top talent back well you still can and let them go win a cup before its to late for them to do so, because that's not going to happen here anytime soon. We can get a big return on Weber and Price if we trade them now, rather then when their past 35 and just average NHL players.
  11. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    Remember when we traded the older leadership in the room so our young guys ie Pacioretty, Price, PK. Could be the new core of the organization. They had no cups or gold medals as pros but we got rid of guys like gionta and Gomez and let the young guys become leader's on this team.
  12. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    ok so you can honestly sit their and say to yourself that over the last 7 years of this ownership/management team they have done everything they could to make a serious run at the cup? Because I can't and I will not, they haven't shown me anything. Just a lot of band aid type trades and moves to keep the media and fans quite.
  13. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    Our prospects pool has been 10x better over the last 3 years once Bergevin change his concept that the old way was still relevant in today's new NHL. Now he's drafting for speed and skill rather than grit and size. I will give him credit for that. But his been here 7 years now along with Molson and other than the first year where he traded for Vanek at the trade deadline, I have get no indication that this organization is serious about making a Stanley cup run. Trades made have been head shaker's, the Domi and Pacioretty trade worked out in his favor but when made, made no sense. Only UFA brought in that worked out was Radulov. To me it's time for change.
  14. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    Price and Weber have been teaching guys like Gallagher, Mete, Petry , Danault, Domi , Tatar, Drouin ,Lehkonen and Kotkaniemi already and these would be the new leadership in the room for the younger guys like Suzuki, Caufeild and poehling once you trade Weber and Price.
  15. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    My thing with management is this, If you want to go the young way and keep your picks and prospects and not go all out for top UFA's, or make trades to help the team at the deadline ........ Then why hold on to Price and Weber? Do them a favor and trade them to a team that's committed to wining now. If you do that you can still get top end value for them now. Then make your run in 3 years when our top prospects are ready. Right now their living on false hope that all we need is Price to get a shootout every night and we have a chance. They think they don't need to put a competitive team in front of Price because Price will be the difference. Well this way of thinking has lead us to being a average team at best and missing the playoffs 4 out of 7 years. At what point in 6 years has this management lead us to believe that they were going to do what it takes to win the cup now? Over the last 2 years we have had the draft picks, the prospects and the cap space to pull off trades to go on a run. But guess what they have done nothing. This is what drives me crazy.
