  2. Sept. 19, Panthers vs Habs, 7:30 PM

    I would definitely exlude the preseason games from the season tickets holders too.
  3. Sept. 19, Panthers vs Habs, 7:30 PM

    I don't believe that you can really evaluate whre your prospects are in only a couple of games because you'll have to play your vétérans for both games. I'd go for 5 games instead of 7 though.
  4. Sept. 19, Panthers vs Habs, 7:30 PM

    So you'd prefer to begin the regular season without any preseason game ?
  5. Sept. 17, Devils (SS) vs Habs, 7:30 PM

    I think it's just how "fighters" do their thing. Chris Neil fought Deslauriers in preseason in 2016, Paul Laus did fight Neil in preseason as well in 2000. and on and on and on. Baddock is not an idiot, he would not jump Kotkaniemi or Victor Mete to make himself a name. He probably even asked Deslauriers if he would go at some point during/before the game.
  6. McCarron re-signs

    I just wish he can become a Brian Boyle. Reliable NHLer. 20ish points per season and a physical presence. Makes opponents think twice before ####ing around.
  7. Poll: Who should be Captain?

    They should not name a captain as long as they entertain the idea of moving Weber. If he finally stays : Weber. If he gets moved : Gallagher.
  8. Because it could prevent you from taking bad contracts along with good prospects à la Bickell + Teuvo.
  9. I would definitely trade Weber as soon as his condition/game allow us to get prime return. I get the veteran presence to develop younger players, but the best type of players to have in this spot are old #5 or #6 dman like Hal Gill. Not your best dman eating a great chunk of the cap space. I would entertain the idea of trading Price only if and when I'm 100% sure that one of the goalies in our system has the potential to become at least a VERY GOOD starter in the NHL.
  10. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Lateral move at best. Bring me a 1st pair LD and I'll be happy.

    Team Kraken as well. But I wouldn't mind Seattle Emeralds (even if I have a hard time picturing the logo and jersey)

    Man... Enough is enough, I swear that from now on, I will kill a kitten everytime you write Dorian instead of Dorion.

    Just saw a report saying that Lenoir received praise from his coach and is now quickly climbing up the depth chart... NOOOOT !!!
  15. Official MLB Discussion Thread

    If I understand your last sentence, it means that the players are not automatically on waivers and that teams don't HAVE to put all their players on waivers but most of the teams will do it anyway just to see what the market is for each of their players. Right ?
  16. Official MLB Discussion Thread

    Can I get a crash course about waivers in MLB ? I read an article saying that Bryce Harper was picked on waivers and that the Nationals didn't proceed with trading him to the Dodgers. It also says that Daniel Murphy was also picked on waivers. I don't get it at all. HEEEELP !!!!

    If you guys hold live fantasy football draft with friends, you might be interested with a game that a friend of mine created. It's on KickStarter for now. Looks awesome. Instead of picking names out of a hat. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/38967838/draft-order-madness-fantasy-football-draft-order-g?ref=555280&token=583f437f
  18. Why will you watch the 2018-19 Habs?

    Part of the problem is, IMO, that the Habs gathered a few players that were very pro-holding onto the puck and coaches who were pretty much against it. Why draft (Galchenyuk) and aquire (Drouin) players that love to be creative and try fancy plays when you pertinently know that your coach won't like it ?
  19. Why will you watch the 2018-19 Habs?

    It's because, in their country, Russians don't consider dump and chase as the right play. Never. Galchenyuk made it clear on a RDS tv show called "Table d'hôtes". He said that he would be benched by Russian coaches when he was younger everytime he would dump the puck and lose possession. He said that he realized that the game was not the same when he came in NA, but that sometimes, it's still difficult for him to dump instead of trying the impossible to create something out of nothing.
  20. Why will you watch the 2018-19 Habs?

    It's funny how, in the NHL, we question the hockey IQ of a player who refuses to dump & chase and tries to be creative with the puck but never question Aaron Asham's hockey IQ.
  21. Do hab fans draft hab players in fantasy hockey??

    Had Price a couple times in the last 5 seasons. Picked Galchenyuk a few years too early too. Max always comes up too so soon for me because of his low salary.

  23. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    This is exactly where I was going with my question. As long as it is successful, you got an edge on the other teams. The year it misses will bring you back tied with everyone starting next season while you're the "loser" for the current season. And then the next draft, you can start over again. It's basically trading "nothing later" for "something now" every year.
  24. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    Do you know guys if some teams are usually done by Round 7 ? If some teams don't really want to use this pick and would be willing to trade current yeard #7 for next year #7 on draft day ? Is this common practice ?
