  1. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    If Friedman and McKenzie are right then 2 second round picks plus a little makes sense and may do it if they don't want to add any salary. This would be a very good addition for us.
  2. 2018 draft thread

    For those who follow the junior ranks closer, would Zadina be anywhere close the Laine prior to his draft? Just wondering with all the talk of whether we should trade our #3.
  3. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Could Stasney fill in for year as a #1 centre while we waited for Kotkaniemi, if we dropped down and drafted him lower?
  4. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I mentioned or asked about Kotkaniemi earlier in a thread but as I think about it, is he not 17 years old right now?? He's born in 2000 so he either just turned 18 or will be turning 18 this year. Doesn't that mean he's not NHL ready right now and won't be for a while? If he's our answer for a #1 centre wouldn't that be too long of a wait for us? Don't we need someone ready to step in now?
  5. Dudley Joins Carolina

    If this was the only move, we could speculate as to why it happened. But this is change #4. Heads are rolling, as they should. We would be more concerned, and angry, if there were no changes. We had a devastating season, third last in the league, and Molson has said it's unacceptable. My guess is that Molson has told Bergevin that the status quo is unacceptable and MB knows that if he doesn't make dramatic changes he will be the next one to go.
  6. 2018 draft thread

    If we did choose to trade our pick is there anyone that could be an option? I guess there are two possible paths. 1. Trade for a young centre just coming into their own. But is there even anyone out there that fits that and would be available?? 2. Trade for a Robert Thomas type player. Maybe a team would trade a very good prospect for another really good prospect if the fit for them position wise was better. I agree totally with not trading a 3d pick for ROR. So back to the original question. Is there any young centre we could potentially trade for with our 3d pick, even if we had to add something to it?
  7. 2018 draft thread

    I'm reading and hearing more that because our greatest need is a top centre and that because none are available in the draft that will bring us immediate help, we should trade our 3d pick, and maybe add to it if necessary, to get our greatly needed top line your centre. For interest sake, who could we target, who would be some really good options for us that we could possible get with our 3d pick, plus?
  8. 2018 draft thread

    Don't beat around the bush....say what you mean!! Joking!! Ok, putting him aside then. What do you think of the young centre. Are they out to lunch thinking he might have that much potential?
  9. 2018 draft thread

    Question. I've said before that I don't follow the pre-pro guys, other than maybe the ones who may go in the top 3 in the draft. So my question is connected to a column by Jack Todd [no comments please] today in the Montreal Gazette, where he quotes a former NHL amateur scout, Grant McCagg, also a friend of Bob McKenzie [I added these credentials [?] just to suggest that he may be a credible source] and McCagg says that he and other NHL scouts are high on a very talented 17 year old Finnish centre, Jesperi Kotkaniemi. Grant McCagg suggests that he thinks the Habs could pull a Carey Price type draft day surprise and pick this young centre, even though he has never been mentioned in the top 3. Todd quotes McCagg who says that in the 2012 draft the best pick ended up being centre Filip Forsberg who was taken 11th overall by Washington and later traded to Nashville, who with that trade settled their first-line centre problem for a decade. So is it possible that they're right about Jesperi Kotkaniemi? For those of you who follow these guys closely, what do you think? Is the third pick an obvious, can't do anything else, or could this be a Carey Price type pick? What do you think? Possible or not a chance?
  10. 2018 draft thread

    I wasn't sure where to put this question so I'm asking it here. I read an article in the french paper and they are saying that a number of teams are interested in signing Alexandre Alain, the captain of the l’Armada de Blainville-Boisbriand. I presume he was undrafted?? According to the article he may be a late bloomer who has a great work ethic and could develop into a good NHL'er. The thinking is that he would be a very good AHL player with a definite shot at the NHL if he keeps developing. Any thoughts on him. Should we or are we interested in signing him?? Evidently he scored 44 goals and had 87 points this year. What are your thoughts for those who follow the junior ranks?
  11. Sylvain Lefebvre has been fired

    So the next obvious question is who replaces him? It seems like MB has a great opportunity now to put in place an heir apparent for the head coach of the Canadiens. If finding a very good bilingual head coach is such a challenge the smart thing to do would be to hire the best possible, most successful QMJHL coach and install him as our AHL coach, and let him bring in some great assistants also with future potential, and hopefully have people developing and waiting in the wings for whenever the next opportunity arrives for the big club. You would think this should be an obvious direction to go??
  12. Permanent Rumour Thread

    If we don't get Tavares, and it appears there are not any highly rated, help us now, centres in the upcoming draft, would we get a decent to good #1 centre for Max Pacioretty? Would it have to be Max plus...... Does anyone know who would be some #1 centre possibilities that we might get in return for Max?
  13. 2018 draft thread

    I wasn't sure where to put this, so this seemed the most appropriate place. What do you think about Jake Evans? MB said he wanted to sign him last year and expects to sign him in the next week or so. How strong a centre prospect is he. Where do you think he will slot in in the NHL?
  14. 2018 draft thread

    Pat Hickey in the Gazette today said that only Dahlin is NHL ready, so if we don't win the lottery there's no help coming in the draft. Is that an accurate assessment? Are the consensus picks #2, 3 and 4 not NHL ready? I don't follow the potential draft picks very closely so I'm deferring to those of you who do.
  15. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Question. I read today that TVA Sports is saying that they have some evidence that there are plans for Paul Stastny to join Montreal in the off season. The article also said that TSN broadcaster Gord Miller stated the Montreal would be a very possible destination for Tavares this summer. Evidently Miller has been told that Tavares friendship with Price and Weber, an original six team and the tradition and atmosphere of Montreal are all very appealing to Tavares. Plus on the practical side, Montreal would have the cap room to do it while a number of other potential teams would have to move some major assets to make a Tavares addition possible. Interesting to say the least. But that isn't my question. I don't really follow players not in Montreal very closely so other than his stats I don't know much about Paul Stastny other than he's 32, has maybe underperformed the last few years and has told someone in the media something that would cause them to tweet a prediction that Stastny is coming to Montreal. That's in the TVA Sports article today. Would Statsny be a good second line centre for us for two years while some of our drafted centres [I'm assuming that along with Ryan Poehling we'll draft one or two good centres in the 2018 draft] develop and get ready for the NHL. Would Statsny be a good fit for us compared to what we have now?
