    Winning the cup is more valuable. 

    I'll take a 3% chance at the cup over a 12.5% Chance at first overall.    Even if you get first overall it still don't guarantee a cup. 

    I agree... winning the cup is very valuable... we disagree that winning this moves us towards that goal... I want to improve our odds year over year by seriously rebuilding... that includes taking chances on higher round picks to build up the talent...

     

    a quick fix is not going to do it.. nothing guarantees a cup, but one can improve the chances... this team was 24th in the league for a reason... it isn’t very good... this win didn’t make them any better..

    If only. He was a fantastic contributor!

     

     

    A loss would have meant a 12.5% chance of the #1 overall pick. I don't favour losing a series in exchange for those odds, personally.

    They are now zero... and we still could have gotten a decent pick even if 9th... yes it is a gamble, but I don’t think we have a 12.5% chance of winning the cup this year..

     

    oh and don’t expect management changes... we made the playoffs... 😂😂😂😂

    Go Habs Go!

    The icing on the cake of this play-in win is noticing the lack of comments from the negative nellies who believe a high draft pick is the only path to success. The foolish posts that Weber is on the decline, Price is past his prime and this team can’t compete even in a league of extreme parity.

    Draft pick primos don’t mean squat in a team sport when games get tight.

    McDavid hasn’t won a team achievement even though he’s a stud who lays it all on the line, Eichel is wasting away no matter how hard he tries to do it all and round out his game, and we’re seeing a pattern in TO of talent meaning nothing without buy-in (see Islanders, Columbus) and heart (see Habs). They’re playing like a bunch of Gallagher’s because of the bar set by him, Carey and Weber to do whatever it takes, be humble, carry a big stick.

     

    Sorry to disappoint, I was busy... 

     

    I still think this is a hollow victory if they just go out in the next round... this team needs a youth movement and to add to that core... this year is a BS hockey season and I would have preferred a top pick... I want several years of being a top four contender in the league. Tired of the cup droughts and hoping for a miracle if we just squeak in.  

     

    worse, if the leafs manage to lose they might win the top pick again.., and we will spend the next 5 to 7 years jealous of their talent level. Frankly, we already should be.., they will be contenders for a while. Doesn’t guarantee them a cup by any means but their odds are a lot better then ours.

     

    i don’t consider this being negative.., I view this as long term strategic thinking...


  4. Look. I like seeing a win as much as the next person, but I am tired of hoping for some unlikely win that never comes... we need to keep building this team. I 2amt a highly competitive team that is likely to win a cup for several years, not “anything is possible”.  We might not get the pick, amen even if we do, it might not pan out.... but in the long run, play the odds.. a couple years of good drafting and there will be a great team around some of our good young players.

     

    now the odds also tell me we need a better GM and drafting team too, but that is another discussion...

    Is Halak's defence making passes to Gallagher in the slot. 

    Did the habs have any wideopen backdoor one-timers?  Actually yes, they had one, and Weber scored. 

    But come on now... the D has to do a bit more.


    I said our D sucks since the start of the season...

    I guess you're one of those when price is playing well his the best when he's playing off his game you say he sucks 


    Price hasn’t been great this year... few very good games, many brutal ones... Not playing to his potential.

     

    as for tonight he was getting rocked on every opportunity. It wasn’t his night...


  7. Halak made a couple great saves when the Habs were all over them... price is stopping nothing more then what a backup can stop.

     

    i don’t blame him for all the goals..this team has many other problems. That said, the top paid player isn’t earning his money he is suppose to make up for mistakes. 


  8. Sorry..but Price is playing like a backup... not making the big saves... for $2m you could have a starter playing just as well... 

     

    use the money to get a defenseman.  
     

    of course that was not a bad goal, but it wasn’t a great save either.., 10m should be getting us some game savers..
