  1. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    I don’t think it really matters as far as the Habs go. Any sensible owner would have fired MB by now. It doesn’t look like Molson is sensible and probably isn’t willing to eat so many years of the idiotic extension he gave MB.
  2. Unless Price is a top 3 goalie despite are AHL defence, we are a bottom 5 team, potentially even a bottom 3.
  3. Finally, I like the plan and direction!

    Ahh, no. This management team does not have a plan. They are not even stumbling along, they are bumbling along. If this was the plan, they wouldn’t have been trying to trade Pacioretty for a pick, to move the pick and other assets for ROR. This is classic management by shitting your pants.

  5. Injury news

    I don’t think so. Not if it’s because of an injury - I don’t recall the Hawks (Hossa) or the Flyers (pronger) we’re penalized. i think they dodged a bullet don’t dumping a declining asset, who looks to now be injury prone. They’re probably doing the balki bautalimas dance of joy that they got a younger more skilled Dman for him. We on the other hand are screwed. While Markov was good when he came back, he wasn’t pre-injury Markov. At least Weber’s game doesn’t revolve aroUnd his skating. Is there a worse defence in the league?? Great job MB!!! How you still have a job, I am dumbfounded!!

    A lot of trade acquisitions you’ve listed were free agents. Gainey’s team went to the final 4 in the Halak year. MB’s team went to the final 4 in the Price MVP year. Both years the only deep runs we had were largely on the back of the core from Gainey acquisitions and draftees. gainey inherited a much bigger mess than MB. Gainey/Gauthier (as AGM) at least set the table for a good core - MB replaced that core with mostly garbage.

    Given where he was drafted, the Mccaron pick was worse than any of those and MB benefited from the lockout amnesty to be able to buyout Gomez. He than promptly replaced him with a just as washed up Briere. The year he should have given Subban an affordable 8-12 year deal (back when he could), he than wasted that money on Briere and Prust. MB also had much more backing from Molson despite having a lot more time to make stupid mistakes. When Gauthier fired Martin and promoted Cunneworth as an INTERIM coach, Molson promptly cut off both of their balls by saying the montreal canadiens would always have a French coach after the usual language out cry bullshit by the media idiots like Rejean Tremblay. MB's first coaching firing was even worst than Cunneyworth hiring, since it wasn't an interim move and he basically replaced MT with a balder clone. I didn't like Guathier, but I absolutely LOATHE MB. He has pretty much repeated what Houle did in destroying a pretty could up and coming lineup that he inherited. The difference is that Houle was basically a nice guy that was put into a role he had no business having by an idiotic president. ON the other hand MB is an arrogant bastard who on any other organization (with the exception of the Charles Wang Islanders) would have been fired 3 or 4 years ago.

    Don't forget not having a succession plan for Subban who he stupidly traded away, after trading away the guy who he himself said was Suban's successor (Sergechev) less than one year after making that declaration. Oh and Sergechev as a rookie dman had a better year than Drouin who he was moved for.

    The Islanders even without Tavares have a MUCH better future than us. First of all, they have a solid management team now and could are rumoured to be a potential destination for Hunter as well. The past performance was a result of the idiotic Wang/Snow/Milbury unholy trinity. We have a clueless management team. Second, the Isles did quite well at the draft as some players rated higher fell to them. They also have Bartzal, who i'd pretty much trade anyone on our roster for.
  10. Finally, I like the plan and direction!

    Florida out because of soap opera with team management - that's been sorted out. TBL were out before because of major injuries, but were still a stacked team. Teams that were out and than got back in have a lot of good YOUNG talent and DOMINANT centres, or a game breaker (NJD - Taylor Hall). We have Price and that's it. If Price is hurt we're out. If price is bad, we're out. If Price is human we're out. Only way we get in is if Price is the Hart/Lindsey winner. We have more holes than any team that was out and got back in.
  11. Finally, I like the plan and direction!

    I agree with the first paragraph. I think we need to clean house - problem is MB is not the one to do it, but we are stuck with him. As for Williams. I hate that puke. Never forgive him for Koivu. He should have been kicked out of that game for what he did to Koivu and instead the puke scored the game winner. Typical BS NHL officiating.
  12. Max Pacioretty Watch

    We have absolutely nothing to offer that would get us Trocheck, unless Talon has a brain cramp or is hedging on us winning the lottery the next 2 years (real possibility) and wants our next 2 #1's and our first pick form this year. Our top assets Price (they don't need unless they can dump Luongo), Weber, Pacioretty and Gallagher and going to get Trocheck. We have absolutely nothing to offer but years of future lottery picks and Floriday would not want us to get good enough to move out of a lottery position (at least that would be the Sam Pollack strategy - and Talon's not even close).
  13. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    We aren’t giving up much, but even then, why we make this deal unless it was contingent on Karlsson signing with us. Ottawa gave up their first next year and that will be a guaranteed lottery pick and I doubt Duschane will resign with them. We are probably a lottery team as well until we get at least a legit #2 centre - which won’t be easy given that Karlsson’s new deal and bobby Ryan together will probably add $18m in salary. So unless Karlsson is guaranteed to sign the extension and unless we have at least a #2 centre, we could still potentially be giving up a lottery pick. There is no quick fix for the mess that moron MB has gotten us into. We need 3 years for our centre prospects to either make the team or be impactful, so I doubt if we are a playoff team until at least year 4 - and that’s assuming Weber is still a top player and price is still one of the top 3 goalies in the league.
  14. Finally, I like the plan and direction!

    Who are we going to beat out for a playoff spot? TBL, TOR, BOS are locks. FLA will be better and are clearly better than us. Wings are in a similar boat, but at least there draft picks may provide immediate help. Only Ottawa is worse, but than they have the worst and most incompetent owner in the league. I can’t see us being better than any of those 3 teams in the Atlantic. That leaves only one wild card spot as our only hope. Well let’s look at the metro. PIT, WAS, CLB should be locks. NJD and PHIl should be better and are trending up and there futures look brighter than ours. The rangers are on actual rebuild and actually have some better top prospects coming in next year, so in two years time they may also be further along than us. So are only hope is Price stands on his head and has another Hart year, but oh, he’s been hurt the past couple of years and last year even when healthy didn’t play well and probably checked out seeing the lineup in front of him. I doubt he is going to be more motivated given this summer. I also think that both he and Weber will probably ask to be moved.
