  1. Because some people will downvote those of us who are critical of Mgmt.
  2. Because we still have people that support MB and habs management
  3. I was going to post the same comment. But I guess that we can’t get rid of slow, big, useless pylons that remind MB of himself.
  4. Nikita Scherbak Called up

    well our GM did trade for Ott, King and Martinsen to solidify us for the playoffs. Is there any other dumb GM's to take advantage off??? Where's Milbury when you need him? IMO, they should start a new GM award - the Mike Milbury award - MB would have won it the last three year's running, with Dorian a close second this year.
  5. Deslauriers signs a two-year extension

    unless your name is Markov or Radulov, or anyone of consequence who can actually make a difference.
  6. Deslauriers signs a two-year extension

    Two reasons. MB likes to play hardball with stars and is a pushover for grunts and he fills the French quota.
  7. Nikita Scherbak Called up

    Wow! That’s call rewarding one of the few players that are worth watching. i get they can send him down unlike others, but move some of the bums off this team already to make room for the kid!
  8. Injury news

    Well if I paid attention to whether Yannick Weber was still in the league, I would have gotten it. With the habs sucking and the NHL’s Olympic decision, I don’t think I’ve paid less attention to what’s going on in the league since the 1997 to 2000 period.
  9. Injury news

    I’d be happier hearing that Shaw will be traded by the Philly game.
  10. Injury news

    No, he wishes he was there, but just watches #76

    I’ve been a card carrying member since July.
  12. 2017-18 NHL Thread

    Phaneuf doesn’t seem to care about winning. It’s all about lifestyle for him. His wife is probably thrilled going to Hollywood.
  13. Retool or rebuild. That is the question?

    Another reason for us to move our older players now. At least Chicago has a reason to commit to them - the seabrook extension was plain dumb. We have not won anything with this group, so let’s start fresh!!!
  14. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Alzner was the #6 dman for Washington in last year’s playoffs.
  15. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Would you move a #2 centre and a 3/4 dman for a #3 centre and a #6 dman? Even with the pick. Even chiarelli is not that dumb. From the Montreal side, why would you want to move a lottery pick in a year where we are likely going to be in top 5, when again, we really don’t get a true number 1 centre???
  16. Retool or rebuild. That is the question?

    First of all, we were spending close to the cap when we finished 28th, as well as when we drafted Sergechev. this team is not going to get any better until we get a management team that knows what it’s doing and is capable of drafting and developing players. We are not getting Thornton or Tavares. If we could get Tavares we would finally have our centre, but why would he ant to come here?? Thornton is close to be being done and also probably would not want I be here. At most he has got 2 years left in him and has been facing injuries this year. Stasny is 32 and it’s been a long time since he played a full season. Stasny and Thornton are no longer top line centres. With the exception of Tavares, you are looking to treat a tumour with a bandage. If both some miracle we did get Tavares, centre is the start of our problems. Our defence is Swiss cheese. Unless we win the draft lottery, it’s going ng to only get worse in a couple of years.
  17. Retool or rebuild. That is the question?

    I really don’t understand why people are so enamoured with the $8m we have in cap space. If we are retooling, the only way we can actually get true high end players to use that cap space is through free agency - and that means we will be over paying. We we don’t have the assets to move to make use of that cap space. The only assets of value we have are Price, Weber, Maxpac, Galchenyuk, Drouin and Gallagher. If maxpac is moved, it will not be for an existing star centre or stud dman prospect. If any of the others is moved we aren’t really retooling, but rebuilding. The rest of the guys we can move are plugs that ar not going to bring much of a return, unless we are willing to move the few quality prospects that are left. Even Petry on his own is not going to bring back anything of quality on his own, unless he is part of a package,
  18. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I still think if we went to Edmonton with a maxpac-Weber-Gallagher type offer we’d be able to get Draisaitl-klefbom+ or maybe even draisatil-Larsson+. I want a better centre than RNH. i can’t see anyone taking alzner unless we eat half of his bloated salary.
  19. Retool or rebuild. That is the question?

    I’ll take what Toronto and Edmonton, or even buffalo have today over our future. Once the leafs got new leadership, they are trending in the right direction. Edmonton has the same brain dead type of GM we have, who threw away Hall and Eberle for table scraps, otherwise they’d be sitting pretty today. Buffalo same problem. Have the pieces but idiotic management and ownership. The rangers who have had more success than us and are in much better shape than us now, have even realized that it’s better to rebuild now than plod along with no real chance of being a true contender. MB blew our window by being gifted Price, Subban, Markov maxpac and a top 3 pick in his first year and Gallagher ready to make the jump and throwing it all away and doing a piss poor job developing players.
  20. Retool or rebuild. That is the question?

    I agree with most of your assessment, but I really think we can accelerate the rebuild by moving 3 core guys - Price, Weber and maxpac. By packaging these core players with guys like Gallagher, Petry and even an overpaid depth guy like Shaw, we should be able to get stud young #1c and dman. Move other dead weight like Alzner by retaining salary and in 2 to 3 years you can rebuild on the fly with a fairly competitive team. I really think Galachenyuk will be a solid #2 centre once MB is canned. But the biggest stumbling block for most is moving Price, when he is really our biggest chip to get rebuild.
  21. Retool or rebuild. That is the question?

    Actually I think vegas first three lines are better than our first. Their 3 defensive pairings are better than our first and their coaching staff is much better than ours. I won’t bother commenting on the GM
  22. Predators @ Canadiens 7PM

    Or trying to get more ex hawks that arent good enough for Chicago anymore
  23. Retool or rebuild. That is the question?

    He would be perfect in that role here - if we had a #1 or #2 centre
  24. Predators @ Canadiens 7PM

    For me suitable punishment is when he is permanently gone to NY. Hopefully it’s some while like Albany IR Syracuse rather than NYC.
  25. Retool or rebuild. That is the question?

    Problem with trying to retool/rebuild to contend in three years is that Weber will be close to done. We need to blow it up now. I would move Weber, maxpac, pleks, Shaw and Alzner if anyone will take them (even retain salary if it nets solid picks) and even ask price and Petry to waive their NMC/NTC. Price and Weber are the only guys that can get us that young potential #1C or dman. The only guys id keep are Drouin and galchenyuk up front (Gallagher if we can’t be packaged as part of a deal for the elusive centre, or young stud dman), and Mete and Julsson. From the kids I’d still hang onto Sherbek.
