  1. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Post all Habs related rumors from other sites (like Eklund) in this thread. Any new threads started based on rumor will be merged with this one.
  2. Galchenyuk traded for Domi

    How is it anything other than atrocious? We traded one of the most talented players on the team and did not even get back a C or LD. Instead, we got back a player who can't put the puck in the net. Like Drouin, he is a far better passer than scorer. Given that there is no chance of immediately replacing Pacioretty's scoring when he inevitably leaves, this team will be left with Gallagher will be the team's top goal scorer. As much as I love him, no team can win with him being their best scorer.
  3. Galchenyuk traded for Domi

    I never imagined a time when I would care more about the Jackets than the Habs... Bergevin is doing his best to make that actually happen. Atrocious trade. It's shocking how much worse this team has gotten in the last two years.
  4. (Legal) NHL streaming or apps

    I used to get the NHL.tv here in the US and stream games via Roku. Quality was almost always great, but the blackouts are a pain in the butt. All nationally aired games are blacked out, in addition to local games. So unless you live outside the US or Canada, kiss the playoffs goodbye.
  5. 2018 NHL Playoff Thread

    Well, they're supporting them now that they've made the playoffs two years in a row and are winning. The year before, they had the 4th worst attendance in the league and it was no problem to buy nosebleeds and then sneak into empty seats in the lower bowl, 10 rows back on the blue line. I'm a believer that it takes 20-30 years to truly grow a fan base in an area completely new to hockey, but the signs definitely don't look good in places like Florida and Phoenix. Kids that grew up on hockey are now getting to the age of being season ticket holders and taking their own kids to games, but that doesn't seem to be happening. Gosh, it was all the way back in 2010 when Montreal beat Washington and Pittsburgh. Can't believe it has been that long already!
  6. 2018 NHL Playoff Thread

    I'm rooting for the Caps out of the East now, but 19 years without a playoff series win for Columbus. That's not even sympathetic; it's pitiable.
  7. 2018 NHL Playoff Thread

    4 in a row. Leave it to the Jackets to choke worse than the Caps. Bob laid an absolute egg.
  8. 2018 NHL Playoff Thread

    I don't understand Tort's recent lack of faith in the fourth line. In the double OT game on Tuesday the 4th line played 6, 8, and 8 minutes. I don't think they saw a single shift in the 3rd period or 1st OT. The Jackets have good depth - their fourth line is by no means a liability. So bummed about being down 3-2 to the Caps. After going up 2-0 in the series, I didn't have any inkling that my tickets to game 6 would be for an elimination game in favor of the Caps.
  9. Habs Sign Jake Evans to 2yr ELC

    Awesome! Excited to see someone I actually have watched on a somewhat regular basis was drafted and signed with the Habs! Will be interesting to see how he progresses. Early in the season, he looked like a potential top 2 center, but he really cooled down after the Spengler Cup. Hopefully Laval will come to Cleveland next season!
  10. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    Huh. I would have sworn Vesey announced it even earlier than Butcher. Well, glad to hear the few rumblings out there have been positive. Would have loved to have seen Anders Bjork stick around for his senior year - Notre Dame would have even better this year. Though from Montreal's perspective, I'm sure they liked getting to see Evans be "the guy" this year.
  11. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    Usually the top seniors like this have given some indication as to if they plan on signing or not, i.e. Vesey several years ago and Butcher last year.
  12. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    I know, but that doesn't have anything to do with whether or not he is planning to sign with Montreal or go to free agency.
  13. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    I haven't been able to find much about the likelihood of Jake Evans signing with Montreal or going the free agent route. Anyone hearing anything about which way he is leaning?
  14. 2017-18 NHL Thread

    Would going to the game next Monday and rooting for the Jackets make me a bad Have fan?
  15. 2018 PyeongChang Olympics Thread

    So glad I'm not the only one who went there!
  16. 2017-18 NHL Thread

    I think ESPN is going to go after the NHL in 2021. Since they bought into the company involved in NHL.tv, they've actually advertised the service all season. Now yesterday they simulcast TSN's trade deadline coverage.
  17. 2018 PyeongChang Olympics Thread

    Hell of an effort by the German men's hockey team. RAISE GOC'S CEILING!
  18. 2018 PyeongChang Olympics Thread

    John Shuster, I lost faith in your ability to win at the highest level years ago. Thank you for sticking with it and not giving up. GOLD BABY!!!!!!!!!!!
  19. 2018 PyeongChang Olympics Thread

    Holy crap! US men will be curling for gold!!!!! OOOOOOOHHHHH YEAH! Also great to finally beat the Canadian women in hockey after 20 years!
  20. The D in general in near AHL level, so I don't get not giving him more of a chance. Sure, he's not a young rookie, but still a North American and NHL rookie. Not that I trust us to develop anyone...
  21. I down vote the whole discussion of down voting.
  22. Because our D is so good we can give up on a guy in his first season in North America and get nothing back for him. It's so hard to care about this team.
  23. 2018 PyeongChang Olympics Thread

    Everything is available live online, but it's just the international video feed and doesn't always have commentary. Hockey, alpine, and figure skating are the only thing the are consistently airing live on TV. Only a couple other events are live each day.
  24. 2018 PyeongChang Olympics Thread

    I hate NBC's coverage. Even worse live coverage than usual. And if they hold off on showing something in the afternoon, you can be sure they are saving an American medal for primetime. Meaning if they show an event in the afternoon, you can bet an American is not going to medal. Curling coverage is especially bad. They aired the 2nd semi on a 13 hour delay and are showing it again 3 hours after that rather than airing the bronze match live. Gold medal will also be a 13 hour delay, I believe. Have to stream to watch anything in a timely manner.
  25. 2018 PyeongChang Olympics Thread

    And thus begins two weeks of half days of work so I can binge on Olympics! Already another rough start for USA curling, dropping to 1-3 this morning.
