  1. Max Pacioretty traded to Vegas

    What? How can you possibly know what Bergevin tried to do? That's the problem with fans, act on little to no information. We have no way to know what trades or free agent signing Bergevin tried to make in 2014 or 2015. Is it his fault if players turn down Montreal for warmer climates or lesser taxes? Who were the top free agents in 2014? Stastny? Spezza? Richards? Vanek? Please tell me what (and if) Bergevin offered them. Less money? Less term? Oh, you don't know. What about 2015? Green? Fisher? Please, tell me what MB didn't do? Not enough signing bonus? Oh, you don't know. Team makes it to ECF. Team has 2nd best record in league. You angry coach didn't get fired. Ahh, makes sense. The fact is, as fans, we opinionate with very little information. What if Stastny turned down millions more from Montreal? What if MB offered the moon in a trade and the other team simply said no. I'm not a MB fan, and I dreaded yesterday when JB took the Tampa job because I figured he'd be the next guy for Montreal. But people really need to stop blaming him for what he didn't do. People also fail to credit decent moves by him.. picking up Byron for nothing. The Danault trade. Diaz for Weise. The Vanek trade. The Drouin trade? The Weber trade? Sure, beat it to death. Free Agency 2014.. give it a rest.

    It's so easy to blame Bergevin for these "circumstances." Pacs likely asked for a trade last season (I believe Molson). Pacs was the guy usually scoring 30 and not managing to get to 20. He lowered his return. Then Bergevin moves him to LA and Pacs nixes that deal. Lots happen behind closed doors that we will never know about. Given the "circumstances", Bergevin did very well here. Suzuki is a better prospect than you think.
  3. Max Pacioretty traded to Vegas

    The Habs did very well. Most media (who cares I guess) are calling this a win for Montreal. Suzuki is a beast, and will be a great player for SEVERAL years in Montreal. The 2nd could be anything. Pacs was GONE after this year. Walking away for Nothing. The ISLES would kill for this deal now for Tavares, and he's far better than Pacs. Such negativity around here. MB crushed this one. Home run. Out of the park.
  4. Max Pacioretty traded to Vegas

    WOW! Surprised they were able to get a guy like Suzuki at this point. Nice trade. It was obvious Pacs was going so three pieces is decent. Tatar is just a cap dump. I wanted quality over quantity. I think this trade is just that.

    If the Sens could get Vans first and Juolevi I think that’s decent. Maybe another 2nd or 3rd pick or B prospect. learn from the Isle, get something. Van is in a tough division, likely a lottery team!

    Kane - McDavid - Tarasenko
  7. Max Pacioretty Watch

    If Pacs was signed long term than I get it, but he’s not. He’s a deminishing asset because in one year he walks away for nothing. You Trade him now for futures so you have futures. Learn from the Isle, sometimes banking on your best offensive player to come back doesn’t pan out. Plus, be realistic. THIS year is going to be a tough year. Weber is out, our F group is the same, and our D hasn’t improved. If Price isn’t a wall, the losses will pile up. Get better by being worse. Get a top of the line prospect rather than a mid rounder.

    The add would be significant, cause Max for AP isn't close.
  9. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    I think Buffalo wins the trade so I'd hope we get more for Max. I'd rather a 1st instead of the 2nd, 3rd, and 6th. PU was drafted in the third I'd gladly take Heponiemi and a 1st from Florida or Bellows and a 2nd from the Isles. Decent prospect, good pick. Quality over quantity.
  10. MB gets an F- grade

    Before last season started, many media types were ripping Washington GM Brian MacLellan. He had signed TJ and Orlov to a ridiculous contracts, lost Theodore for nothing, traded Johansson for nothing.. how'd that work out? The Caps won the cup. Media members know very little of what actually happens in the office of a GM. You think MB didn't try to sign JT. You think MB didn't try to make trades. I'm not saying he's the best GM, not even sure if he's adequate yet, but we will never know the conversations he's had to try and build the team. Who cares what the media thinks.
  11. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Pacs and Schlemko to Jersey for Wood, Boqvist and a pick.
  12. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Pacs and Benn to Arizona for Pierre-Olivier Joseph, Jan Jenik, and their 1st round pick??
  13. Habs re-sign Phillip Danault

    I agree with you. Not knocking Danault, love what he brings. But no team is winning a cup with him as their best C.
  14. Habs re-sign Phillip Danault

    He’s best suited in a 3C role and this contract is about in line with that so good money and term. As of now, he’ll be one of the most used Cs on the team, should be another long year.
  15. Habs invite Simon Despres to training camp

    Sign him to a one year deal, hope he performs well, and trade him at the deadline. Concussion history is too serious for a long term contract.
