  1. Ticket Sales

    I sat in aa white once year. It was good value. You could see the whole game. I only go to one or two games a year so I like premium seats as a rule.

    Gallagher is definitely consistent so I don't expect him to regress. Danault, Shaw, and Petry also had great years. I hope you're right and the pp can make a marginal improvement. Domi is the one I'm worried about having a down year. If him and Drouin have good years and kk, price, Weber improve over last year, we are playoff bound.

    I think 2019 2020 wil be a slight let down year because I don't expect Kinkaid to be enough to balance the regression of at least a few of last season's career year performances. I think it's unlikely that the whole team has career years two years in a row. A full year of Weber. A strong year by cp, and kk taking the next step could balance it out though. Im thinking 95 points next season. But after that I think ther future is actually bright for the first time since price was young and pk and pacioretty were in the minors and college. Suzuki poeling kk caufield brook and the Russian dude all seem like guaranteed nhlers. If 3 or 4 of them can be top 6 top 4, the team becomes a contender in 3 years.

    Kk has a much higher ceiling and played 3c all year. You can hope in one hand and shit in the other and see which fills first. Poeling may not even make the team. I dont think it's pessimistic to think that if he does make it he will be protected and get 4th line minutes.

    The argument that he killed killed the old core is a good one. I was reading an article in the athletic, which showed contenders over the last decade. Using the following criteria 1. Finish the regular season with 100 or more points (or the equivalent in a lockout year)2. Finish in the top 10 in both the penalty kill and power play3. Finish in the top five in the league in xGF%4. Finish in the top five in the league in GF%5. Finish in the top five in the league in SRS (a metric from hockey-reference that factors in goal differential and strength of schedule)6. Advance to the second round of the playoffs the previous year Montreal were contenders in 2010 2013 and 2014. That is all gaineys and gautiers team. rather than build on an already great team, bergevin slowly dismantled it before they could truly contend. But to call the last couple years inept, is also wrong. There are some impact prospects in ther system. A lot of them. The coaching staff has been upgraded in a big way. I think he should get a few more years at this point. ...sorry about the font. Not sure what happened.

    Raw data without context is crap. To come to the conclusion that his an above average GM bases on a overly simplistic analysis is crap as well. this wording is probably why.
  7. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    The issue I have is that he did not court radulov really. He played hard ball the whole way. Saying it was first come first serve publically. This, to me, is a very indifferent statement. I would want to look elsewhere if my boss publically said that about me.
  8. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    This is an over the top statement. Calling him mediocre is a fair assessment, but milbery snow level ineptitude is radical.
  9. Stuff moved from the Rumour thread that isn't rumours

    Great post. This sums up my view perfectly. Add to the disappointment his handling of the Markov Radulov free agency.

    Im not a fan of disagreement downvotes either. I typically reserve them for transgressions like being overly sarcastic and such.

    I've been questioning the chariot move as well. His numbers are a result of playing with byfuglien.
  12. 2019 NHL Offseason Thread

    Washington were heavy too. This is a copy cat league. I bet if 2020 is won by a heavy team, we will start seeing more premium on big players again in the future.

    Marner is a superstar. I would take marner over both laine and Gardiner combined.

    Dude. Its hudon. Not hundon. Not sure if your phone is auto correcting or what, but for the love of God stop calling him hundon.
  15. Habs sign Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

    I believe what bergevin said is correct in my view. 10.5 and 4 1sts was too much cost. The difference in up front money between 8.5 and 9.5 was not enough. If the owner was willing to pay 22 up front, another 3 or 4 million and another first wasn't going to matter. The leverage was the owner's liquidity and massive losses in sports investments last year. It didn't happen. It would not have happened with a 9.5 contract, and a top tier contract the price was too high.
