  1. Giving up a 1st round pick for a washed up player, thank god we have a GM now who would never make a foolish trade like that!! Sorry, a little bored in self isolation and felt like stirring the pot a bit. Please ignore.
  2. Hey, I was a little surprised to see those names too but there are fans out there who love role players or perhaps it was a little tongue in cheek, only Neech knows for sure.
  3. Like they say "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". I will not judge.
  4. I think a big part of the reason some items are harder to come by is that Canadians (not sure about our southern neighbours) have been going a little over board hoarding some items. I have noticed that pasta has been in short supply on my recent trips to the grocery store. I also think we can disagree with people without being rude otherwise this board will degenerate quickly.
  5. Agree 100%, Dipietro played a huge role in that cup win, it's all about winning the cup, I think my response echoed that.
  6. Oh come on. The job Trump has done with this virus is 10/10 (well according to Trump anyway). Does it seem like we are getting off topic or is it just me?
  7. Dipietro won a cup which is certainly memorable, a lot of guys have excellent careers and never win one. Druce didn't have a bad NHL career (113 goals versus 31 for Dipietro) but he doesn't have a ring.
  8. Great compilation, thanks for sharing, brings back great memories. That playoff was definitely the highlight of Paul Dipietro's brief NHL career. Whatever happened to Ed Ronan?
  9. And not long after that run they made one of the worst trades of all time, Eric Desjardins and John Leclair for Mark Recchi. OUCH! While Recchi was a decent player for Montreal, John Leclair became the dominant power forward in the NHL for a number of years while Desjardins became a solid, dependable top 4 defenceman.
  10. Without Patrick they don't get a sniff of the cup that year. When I look back at their 93 roster it had to be one of the weakest Canadien rosters to ever win a cup. Things just seemed to fall into place for them. On defence Kevin Haller, Lyle Odelein, Patrice Brisebois, JJ Daigneault, not exactly Hall of Famers, Eric Desjardins and Mathieu Schneider were pretty good. That was a hell of a series with the Nordiques who had a talented team, Sakic, Sundin, Owen Nolan etc. But we had Patrick!
  11. That was a crazy playoff year, to win that many overtime games in a row is crazy when you think overtime is pretty much a 50/50 shot. It's like flipping a coin and calling it right 10 times in a row although a hot Patrick Roy can definitely tilt things in your favour.
  12. Agree, thought he was terrific at the world juniors. Terrific skater.
  13. And I thought I was old. LOL I never saw Doug Harvey but my dad should talked a lot about him.
  14. I am talking Mario Tremblay the player, not the coach. Loved him as a player and that's what the question was.
  15. Great topic, started watching in the mid 60's. If I had to pick 5 it would be: 1) Jean Beliveau - such grace and class 2) Yvan Cournoyer - loved watching the roadrunner 3) Guy Lafleur - I will never forget the key goal he scored with a minute to go to tie Boston in game 7, I can still see it 4) Larry Robinson - one of my favourite moments was when he pounded the shit out of Dave Schultz during a brawl, always felt good when Big Bird was out there 5) Bob Gainey - such a class guy, tireless worker, great team guy Honourable mention to many, Serge Savard, Mario Tremblay, Mats Naslund, Knuckles Nilan, Ken Dryden, Doug Risebrough etc etc
  16. Just be a little patient. I am sure you won't be disappointed. LOL
  17. You know there is not much to talk about when Alex Belzile gets his own thread.
  18. I agree, I think the owners of sports franchises should note how Mark Cuban is handling this. Of course Mark has deeper pockets than most but he is doing the right thing.
  19. Caufield just doesn't seem like the kind of guy who wants to spend 4 years at university. He seems focused only on hockey. I think there is almost zero chance he spends 4 years at Wisconsin. Hopefully just 1 more.
  20. Agree, this should have no bearing on whether the Habs sign Caulfield. I don't think Don was implying they should because of it, just sharing the story. I think Caufield should spend another year at Wisconsin. I think the fact that he slowed down quite a bit after a hot start might indicate that he is not ready for the long grind of an NHL/AHL schedule. He still needs to mature.
  21. Chris, you never had to watch this garbage team even when they were playing. However it may leave a void in your life so you will have to find something else to be negative about.
  22. Whether we should or should not have traded Tatar at the deadline is just pure speculation as we will never know what MB was offered. Tatar is a valuable member of the Habs, has 1 year left on his contract and seems to like it here. The return would have to be substantial, not just a late 1st round pick.
  23. Yeah, I am betting they would probably take Lafreniere with the #1 pick. There is little doubt about that.
