    I don’t agree. Teams do not necessarily need to draft early in the 1st round to contend. The Crosby, Malkin mcdavid McKinnon Matthews of this world don’t come into the league yearly! you could easily draft a yakapov or a puujarvi instead of Laine or get Nugent Hopkins 1st overall ... What you need to do is draft WELL in the 1st anf 2nd rounds regardless of where your drafting. We created an organizational hole in MTL because we went on a 3/5 year stretch where all our 1st and 2nd rounders didn’t pan out regardless of when drafted. That’s what created a gap with the core already established on the team and with nobody coming up to join them and MB only testing fringe UFA’s trying to find lightning in a bottle caused this reset! We seem to have gotten over that hump recently with better early round picks and haveing created a prospect depth vacuum these last 2 seasons with multiple picks creating better odds of landing someone significant. hopefully with more to come in this upcoming draft with a lot more picks. This team right now is a great blend of young and old players -25 and under (the majority) -30 and under (the 2nd most) -over 30 ( the least) are we not one of the 3 youngest teams in the league? -we had 7 WJC players in the tourney (the most by any team!) -one in each of the 6 positions on the ice and all of them playing key roles on their team. Romanov, Primeau and Poehling all looking like great value picks where drafted at this point. i do want us to stay the course... but jump on the prospect of a great value deal for a decently aged LD to fill the whole left by Markov and his drafted successor Schergachev that we traded away. And I will repeat we are “pretending” to be contenders at this point but with that said, we are one d man and one kid from taking the next step to really being in the midst of a large group of “contenders” not named Tampa Bay.
  2. The Impact of Shea Weber

    Did you read the whole post?? It was meant in no particular order but quote me when I say... “there lies the problem” and with that that said, I would argue every coach in the entire NHL would take Weber over Josi. and I really like Ekholm but Petry has out played him over the last 1 1/2 seasons without the benefit of playing with superior supporting cast/line mates! And as stated we don’t even have a 3rd Dman to mention to counter P.K. so... there lies the problem!
  3. The Impact of Shea Weber

    Ellis is over rated personally and I’d rather have our 5-6 Dman then there’s as they are no better. Ekholm - subban - josi Weber - Petry - nobody there lies the problem

    Lots to like with this young, young team! As long as they learned a lesson! So a deeper more experienced squad beat us tonight coming off a back to back that they just lost to an inferior team. Lessons learned! lets see if we learned anything from that 7-1 drumming to Minny a month ago
  5. The Impact of Shea Weber

    Off topic but really not.... I remember the habs record with Markov and without was like night and day... I miss that general back there!

    And he’s accrued those 40 games for all the right reasons... can’t wait till those posts and potential assists start going in more frequently.

    and i said he would go under on the player points prediction... haha
  8. Game#32 November 13 Hurricanes vs Habs 7:30

    How did they set up on the PP? Did they even get set up
  9. Game#32 November 13 Hurricanes vs Habs 7:30

    I heard they are in white at home?
  10. Game#32 November 13 Hurricanes vs Habs 7:30

    LoL it’s a start that’s for sure... one of them has to be a QB though I’m guessing Petry stays on the right/top and Weber tees them up from the left... Drouin should now come off the right side boards with Domi and Gallagher in there perspective corners? at work till 9 so won’t be watching till then

    What does bob mac's opinion of team canada's projected lineup have to do with suzuki playing most of his junior career at wing? Im not saying he hasn't or cant play C. just saying i am very, very reluctant to even mention him as a C as early as next year on the habs given the fortunate turn of events this season at that position. I can very well see suzuki playing out the same way Galchenyuk did... is he a C or is he a winger? ALSO, There is no way at all Domi gets moved back to the wing considering the great success he's had thus far. Of course if he completely falls off the rails moving forward then all bets are off. You would have to believe as early as next season DOMI KOTKANIEMI DANAULT are all locks which leaves room for Evans, Poehling in a fight for the last C spot. Gallagher is not going anywhere! And again, i only see suzuki making the team as a winger.
  12. HABS @ WILD, DEC 11, 20:00 ET

    With kotkaniemi Danault Domi and Evans likely earning a 4th line role. Suzuki will more then likely only make next years Habs as a winger. Keep in mind he’s played way more wing then C at the junior level.
  13. HABS @ HAWKS, DEC 9, 18:00 ET

    Would you buy "the best offence is a good defence"? The transition game off the rush from both Byron and Lehkonan after that line turns pucks over would be where the production i'm talking about would come from.
  14. Domi > Galchenyuk

    Galchenyuk has in fact been moved to the wing. He's been playing on Schmaltz's wing since the trade. Maybe we can finally, finally put the Galchenyuk at C debate to rest.
  15. HABS @ HAWKS, DEC 9, 18:00 ET

    im sure a line of Lehkonan Danault Byron would be more then capable of playing the tough minutes against the top lines. As well as contribute on the score sheet. In fact I would wager they contribute more so then they do currently. This would essentially free up Gallagher and Tatar to be even more dynamic without having to nullify the other teams top line. You'd also have to consider the other team would try and shut down Domi and Drouin. So with all this said, when playing at home, CJ could actually create some really good match up challenges for the other team trying to stop a dynamic line of Tatar and Gallagher with a much more offensively inclined Kotkaniemi (who has shown already that he is not a liability in his own end and has good defensive awareness). I was preaching this change for a few weeks now. I've also noticed many pundits starting to discuss the change in recent days. And although it's not something that needs to be done imminently. I do believe it will be done before to long.
