  1. Which is why we'll be screwed having him eat up such a large portion of the cap for the next 8 years.
  2. 2017-18 NHL Thread

    I don't know if Pleks gets a 2nd at the deadline. His value as a depth forward is greatly diminished now by his lack of speed, and he isn't Canadian and thus lacks that 'character' that some GM's are still willing to overpay for.

    Alzner. And Price to a lesser extent.
  4. Canada might have gotten lucky to avoid the US in the gold medal game. Gotta take care of business against Sweden though!
  5. Habs Castoff Defencemen Now Rated High

    Could add Davidson to the list, apparently. I was sad to see Barberio go. Pateryn kind of did himself in. This underlying pattern here is that Bergevin is stuck in an old-school mindset and doesn't listen to his analytics department. We need a modern, forward-thinking management regime, but unfortunately Montreal might be the most difficult place to implement one.
  6. GDT Thread Dec. 22 - Team Scoring Machine @ Flames

    A win's a win, even if it got a little dicey at the end. Instant impact from Lekhonen. They've got to find a way to get Hudon back out there. I wonder if Carey goes back to back before Christmas. Great thread CC!
  7. PK took a big share of the spotlight, which I'm sure his teammates could appreciate. How many guys in the league actually want to spend their career in Montreal? It's probably the least desirable market for a bunch of players.
  8. Dec. 9, Oilers vs Habs, 7 PM

    That has more to do with the nature of the two sports. In basketball, it's much harder for the less talented team to win a seven game series, while in hockey you see it all the time. MoLG was talking about player movement in the offseason, and a lot of that has to do with maximum contract length; in the NBA it's 4 years as a UFA, or 5 to re-sign, while in the NHL it's 7 or 8. There's also the 7 or so years of control that the drafting team has over the player, which again is much shorter in the NBA. I wouldn't mind shorter contracts in the NHL, but of course the NHLPA would fight it.
  9. GDT #30: Flames @ Habs, 7:30 PM

    I guess not. We must have the least exciting group of forwards for 3-on-3. Pleks and Danault? Ugh.

    The dominant hand is the top hand when swinging a baseball bat. Maybe you mean further from the nub of the bat/stick.
  11. I wasn't around for the Houle years. Before Subban was traded, the move I most rued was losing McDonagh. Truly believe we would have been a juggernaut with Subban-McDonagh-Markov in front of Price, even with a ragtag group of forwards lacking a true superstar (like Nashville last year). It really taints Gainey's legacy in my eyes.
  12. Blues @ Habs 7:30 Dec. 5 2017

    Yeah, I've never felt like we've had a real contender, even when we were putting up the regular season points of one or making the conference finals. And it's always been the same failing: the centre position.

    Nice fluky curve from Shwebs, I'll take it!
  14. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Oh I didn't know Giroux's been playing wing. I wouldn't mind his contract that much because our window doesn't seem like it'll be open for very long.
  15. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Has your opinion changed at all here? Giroux is the kind of player this roster needs in place of Plekanec. Of course I'd rather Tavares or the like, but I'd settle for Giroux. The haul the Avs got for Duchene might have screwed up the market for us, however.
