  1. Think of how much better off we would of been had we not of bought Steve Mason out. Never made sense to buy him out with our massive amount of cap space available his year. Anything would of been better than Niemi. Lindgren has kind of put the Habs in a bad spot this year. The plan was for him to be able to supplant Niemi if he faltered but he has faltered himself.
  2. Nov. 1, Caps vs Habs 7:30

    If that two second mark holds up it would be the fastest two goals (one team) in NHL history. I'm sure they will scrutinize to see if the clock started and when it went in etc. It was previously 3 seconds. https://thehockeywriters.com/fastest-two-nhl-goals/ Islanders also tied the then NHL record of 3 seconds in 2016.
  3. 13th Annual Regular season Prediction Contest

    35 - 35 - 6 - 6, 82 points 6th in Division 233 goals for 23rd overall
  4. Joel Armia and Steve Mason for Simon Bourque

    Guess the Habs won't have to trade for a 7th round pick at the draft next year! Overall a solid pickup. We have the salary cap space to take on contracts like this. Not sure if they plan on using Armia as a centre cause he has mostly played the wing. We'll also be in line to sign him as well since he's a RFA. There are teams that could still use Mason as a backup so if we retain salary I'm sure we can get a little bit for him. That or trade Niemi.
  5. Galchenyuk traded for Domi

    Who did we trade Drouin for?
  6. Galchenyuk traded for Domi

    2 years at an average salary of 3.15m Hate this trade. Galchenyuk was my favourite player. So much upside but underutilized by the Habs. Not sure where our goal scoring will come from next season unless of course the net is empty.
  7. 45-29-4-4 98 pts 3rd in division 6th in the east 236 goals
  8. Habs sign Mark Streit, 1 year, $700,000

    I mean the cost is relatively nothing so there can't be too many complaints but it's just confusing. The question becomes what is with all of this depth? Weber, Alzner, Petry, Schlemko, Benn, Davidson, Jerabek, Morrow, and now Streit. There isn't room for 9 on the roster. Almost a certainty in my mind that Markov isn't coming back as he would bring that number to 10. The problem is he is the only one that can play in the top 4 outside of Weber, Alzner, and Petry.
  9. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Ya I guess I wasn't that clear on it. If it were to be McCarron involved it would be straight up player for player. No second rounder. Ya I'm okay losing de la Rose as well but his trade value can't be that high. Emelin was picked over him. And that guy is doing alright. Ya I think we would still be able to take in a smaller player in the right circumstances but don't know if Bergevin would be all that willing. If it came to Drouin - Spooner - Gallagher that's a pretty small line.
  10. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    If I were GM I would go and make an offer for Ryan Spooner. He's small being 5'10" but has the ability to fit in as your second line center. He had a bit of a down year last year and was scratched for some games in the playoffs so his value would be low. 25 year old who put up 49 points a season ago and 39 last year. I know this probably won't happen since Julien and Spooner didn't quite see eye to eye with Spooner saying Julien didn't like him as a player. Spooner for 2nd round pick and de la Rose. Might need to add more though to entice. Maybe McCarron.
  11. 2017 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    Vilardi is dropping a bit. I thought Detroit was going to take him. Guess teams are concerned about his skating.
  12. 2017 NHL Offseason Thread

    It's a very scary thought that Oshie got that since you would think Radulov would want something similar. Both 30 yearold wingers. The Caps will be paying Oshie till he's 38. I would give more money to get the years off but I think it's starting to look more and more like Radulov won't be back if that's what the market is.

    Chicago is busy. They are also starting to report that Panarin is headed to Columbus for Saad. Gotta be more to that puzzle that they still have to announce.
  14. Habs protect Byron, Danault, Drouin, Galchenyuk, Gallagher, Pacioretty, Shaw, Benn, Petry, Weber, Price No real surprises there. The debate was only Shaw or Hudon at this point with Beaulieu out of the picture. Here's the full list: http://www.tsn.ca/nhl-reveals-protection-lists-ahead-of-expansion-draft-1.782246

    Mike Smith to the Flames for Brandon Hickey, third rounder and rights to Chad Johnson. Coyotes will retain 25% of his salary. Not sure he's the answer in Calgary but at least they are attempting to fix it.
