  1. 2018-19 NHL General Discussion Thread

    Hitchcock is in Edmonton for the season, that's it. Unless some Cup run happens, Chiarelli will be out and the new GM can bring in his hand picked coach.
  2. Nov. 13, Canadiens vs Oilers, 9 PM

    HATE that CP31 isn't starting. I know, he's struggling. But it's not like Niemi just played some monster game and earned a shutout. He was ok against Vegas, not special. You have to give Price the opportunity to play out of his slump. Against a one line Oilers team, I'd like his chances.
  3. Nov. 13, Canadiens vs Oilers, 9 PM

    I'll be at the game.. hoping for a huge night from Domi and a big goal from Kotkaniemi. Obviously, as long as the Habs win it'll be a good night.
  4. Oct. 20, Montreal vs Ottawa, 7 PM

    Sucks to lose after a good first but these games happen... On the bright side, a point on the road is still a point on the road. 10 points in 7 games.. learn from the loss and get some more Ws
  5. Oct. 17, St. Louis vs Montreal, 7 PM

    Big goal by Gally there, full effort by Tatar. Another win for the hard working Habs!
  6. Oct. 13, Pittsburgh vs Montreal, 7 PM

    Wont be the popular choice, but Kots is likely gone by game 9. Not sure if it’ll be Finland or Laval but he’ll be sent somewhere to dominate, get big minutes. With Kots, Poe, and Suzuki.. gotta be excited for the future!
  7. Oct. 13, Pittsburgh vs Montreal, 7 PM

    Nice win after falling behind by 2. Kept pushing, followed their leader (Gally) and picked up a big two points. Go Habs Go!
  8. Game #2 Oct. 6, 7:00 Montreal vs Pittsburgh

    2 road games against two of the better teams in the East.. 1-0-1 and looked like the better team. Good start fellas!
  9. Game #2 Oct. 6, 7:00 Montreal vs Pittsburgh

    Granted Byron has three points, but Domi has looked like the best forward tonight. Just smooth with the puck. Defensively, Juulsen has looked best. Nothing fancy, just smart and tough. (Learning from Weber?) This team is full effort, they’re much better than most of you believed!
  10. Oct. 3, Habs vs Leafs, 7 PM

    I actually like all 4 lines.. excited to see what Peca brings, third line looks speedy, see what Tatar does with Gallagher, first line looks dynamite. Lookout! 3-1 HABS tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. 13th Annual Regular season Prediction Contest

    47-22-8-5 for 107 points 2nd in Division 3rd in the East 287 goals Price is Price. Kots wins ROTY. Drouin leads team with 82 points.
  12. Galchenyuk traded for Domi

    Bold predictions.. Domi finishes this season with more points than Galchenyuk. Tatar finishes this season with more points than Pacioretty.
  13. digging through the dirt

    I'd move McCarron for a pick.. same with Benn.. Scherbak too if you could get a 2nd or 3rd. Keep Schlemko. I'd guess he has the best chance of bouncing back and increasing his value. Keep Hudon. See Schlemko. Once Shaw and Weber are back then make another deal. There isn't a trade to be made that is going to send this team over the top, so build for the future. Figure out who is part of that and get rid of those who aren't.
  14. 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.
  15. Max Pacioretty traded to Vegas

    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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    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!
  19. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    Kane - McDavid - Tarasenko
  20. 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.
  21. Max Pacioretty Watch

    The add would be significant, cause Max for AP isn't close.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

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

    Pacs and Benn to Arizona for Pierre-Olivier Joseph, Jan Jenik, and their 1st round pick??
