  1. Based on taxes, Montreal would have to offer $500,000 more if Carolina is paying 4.05... could be a factor. Who knows.
  2. That’s a nice pickup for a stacked team..
  3. Agreed... gotta get that Superstar scorer if you can.. Kots can slide up to the 2nd line role..
  4. Yes, back to Rumours please.. What we trading for Laine?
  5. I’m a big MB defender because I think the job he’s done recently has been pretty good. The future looks bright and he has pieces to play with. Having said that, I’d be shocked if he’s around next year if they miss the playoffs.
  6. I’m not saying they are cup favourites.. the D is mediocre and I’m not convinced Andersen is the guy in net to get them there.. but they are a playoff lock and have a good chance at winning it all. I love the Habs, always will. But Toronto’s cap problem is one I’d love to have..
  7. While I agree that the Leafs are in a very tough Cap situation.. their star power is also impressive. They have three legit stars - Marner, Tavares, and Matthews - and another forward who could be special - Nylander. It's a problem many teams would be willing to take on.
  8. I know it's Eklund so likelihood it is actually happening is close to zero.. but what would it cost Montreal to trade for Laine? And how good would Drouin - Kotkaniemi - Laine be??
  9. The analysts have also said Point was the initial target and Point said no. Is that MB’s fault? MB went after what many believe was a cheap owner and it just didn’t work. Again, Free Agents have to want to sign here. People can argue all they want that taxes don’t play into it but they certainly do. So does weather. So does media. There are lots of reasons why a player might not sign in Montreal, can’t blame MB. The point I was making with the Aho sheet was that ownership is not being cheap. It could have been more. The fact that Mb has cap space doesn’t meant they’re cheap or not trying.. it’s impossible to know what was offered to who and why people didn’t come to Montreal.
  10. You can’t say to MB - hey, Domi and Tatar has good seasons after you acquired them but it was likely a fluke so you’re fired. He’s done a good job filling the cupboards that looked extremely bare just two years ago. The Domi trade was a win. The Tatar and Suzuki trade might be a homerun. Missing the playoffs is the biggest problem so I think he gets this year to fix that or he’s gone. And you can’t say Molsen doesn’t want to spend money - they submitted an offer sheet that would have paid a guy 21 million in a calendar year. You cant totally fault a GM for players signing elsewhere - more factors than how good the GM is. Again, it’s been a decent offseason and I’m sure more is to come before opening night. Give the Fire MB chant a rest for a few weeks.
  11. Great signing.. 2.4 per year for 2 years.
  12. Tatar - Danault - Gallager Drouin - Kotkaniemi - Puljujarvi Lehks - Domi - Armia Byron - Cousins - Thompson/Weal/etc.. Are we concerned with bumping Weal or Thompson or Weise from the lineup??.. I'd rather have three really good lines and if he finds his game and is a fit in the top 6 it only gives you more trade chips to get the LD. His salary is not a problem. And if Poehling or Suzuki earn a spot then again - more trade chips to add to the D. Plus, a trade will likely include one of those forwards going out anyways..
  13. What? Not a risk? This is the exact type of risk MB should be taking.. he’s a young kid with tons of potential who looked like a beast a couple years ago.. he’d be a reasonable cost, and would fit into the team window.. It’s a low risk with the potential to be very rewarding..
  14. Unless you have some inside information or some hidden recording device, it's hard to fault any GM for not signing Free Agents. There is just too much that goes into a decision on where to sign by a FA to blame MB for not landing one.. Money, term, taxes, media, family, weather, etc. etc. etc. I can guarantee there have been several Free Agents over the year that MB has tried to sign and lost out on because the FA has chosen to go somewhere else.. If he was dropping the ball in trades then I would get the criticism, but he is above average in that category.
  15. Nylander just went for a decent defensive prospect and he was picked 8th and has been worse than Puljujarvi. Hudon is not getting us JP. Maybe Juulsen and a lower pick?
