  1. I think Winnipeg would do this in a heartbeat but it would be a disaster for mtl to pay that for Perrault. If it were Perrault and a pick coming with 1/2 salary retention then I could see it maybe but I don’t think even then it would be a good move
  2. Actually, I would have liked Thornton on the Canadiens at that price, but I’m still holding out hope for a veteran center of less reputation that can still skater.
  3. Nope. That is a recipe for disaster. You don’t spend decades trying to acquire / develop center depth and then squander it by gambling that a rookie is going to replace a player like Danault. I predict that he will be signed to an extension soon...if Danault is traded in the near term, Bergevin and all of us fans will regret it.
  4. It might well have, but that trade does not improve the team next season like the Anderson trade should. I know that you, and many others here don’t care for the Domi trade version 2, but that doesn’t change two things: 1. It was a trade made with the intention of immediate improvement and 2. Despite his issues Anderson was coveted by many other teams around the league by all accounts. I would have liked MB to use an asset to get the 21 or 22 pick and grab Lappierre. No matter what our GM does no one is going to be 100% happy with all his moves unless, and until we win a Cup.
  5. OMG NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. An injury prone 30 year old for KK and the 16th? No, Non, ten thousand times NO
  6. The flat cap giveth and the flat cap taketh away, so sayeth the Bettman
  7. I hope that the last part of your post becomes true
  8. I would not be upset to see them take a chance on Hendrix Lapierre at 16. Assuming that a player they have targeted doesn’t drop like last year and they keep the pick
  9. You must be bored,trying to stir the pot with comments like that
  10. First team to score has won every game so its safe to say that the first goal is crucial tomorrow.
  11. Lavoie reporting that Gallagher does indeed have a broken jaw. ^%@!*&^%$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Niskanen, Vignault and that POS Chris Lee. I wonder if he will still play?
  12. Tough to do when you are not scoring at all, but to win today Montreal simply needs to score first and play as well as they did in Game 1.
  13. It is long past time for Poehling or even Hudson to replace Weise. I loved DW in his first stint with the team but he is done. I know Hudon is ill suited to a 4th line but is CJ must be the only one watching these games that cannot see that Weise is bringing nothing. And Ouellet? 🤬
  14. I watched the NBC broadcast because Hughson and Simpson are so putrid.
  15. In retrospect, I should have left that sentence at “ I don’t expect...”. Just my old aversion to everything Oilers bubbling up again 😎 Of course I would love all of that talent on the Habs.
  16. I don't expect, or even want, the Habs to morph in to the 1987 Oilers. But, if they are the reincarnation of the 1986 Canadiens--- that would make me ridiculously happy.
  17. Not sure where he fits. I do not like the idea of starting next season with an unproven NHL rookie as back up and I also was hoping they would give McNiven a real shot in the AHL. I do not like green backup goalies here; I do not like green backups there. I do not like them anywhere, Berge- I- am!
  18. When the coach says he has no answers and it’s up to the players, I worry that the coach and GM have differing views on the core of this team
  19. Is it a systems problem? How can they keep losing the same ugly way ? This season is like Groundhog Day.
  20. Jaded, conspiracy theorist Trizzak channels the negative hack, Brendon Kelly in way that is more entertaining than the original
  21. What do you guys think of this. It seems li a hell of a gamble. I would love to see Lafreniere in Montreal but I think that deal is a bit too much. From gohabsgo Norman Flynn confessed to Martin Lemay that he would offer nothing less than Nick Suzuki, Alex Romanov, Cayden Primeau and the Canadiens 2020 first round pick overall to bring Lafrenière to Montreal.
  22. Imagine how much better the Canadiens would be right now if Bergevin had canned Slyvain Lefebre two or three years earlier like he should have
  23. Bergevin: Ilya, Ilya, we really really like you. How would you like a chance to go win the Cup this year? Kovy 2.0: Uh Bergy , i’m not sure... you know, I reallly like the guys and the city... Bergevin: Yes, I know, but we need more picks; the draft is in Montreal this year. Look, I want you on this team. In July, I will resign you. How does 1 year at 5mill and a no move clause sound? Kovy 2.0: Dosvedanya! See you July 1st. You’re bringing the Stoli, right? Bergevin: Of course! ( inspired by Trizzak)
  24. As per Marc Dumont on the Athletic, if I am in Bergevin’s seat I am gauging the trade value of all of our pending ufa and rfa players. Eg., what is Domi looking for in a new contract? If he is seeking a number that I don’t like, as GM I’m looking for a major return. Similarly, I would start the auction on Kovalchuk, Thompson etcetera. What about Tatar? What would be a good enough offer to let him go? What if miraculously we are within 3 points of a playoff spot, do we suddenly become buyers? Bergevin needs to have decisions made now so that he is ready at the deadline. As much as I think a mini-sell off would be the best for our long term future I can’t help hoping for a playoff spot and the continued renaissance of Kovy 2.0 in a Montreal jersey. For once, I’m glad that i am not the GM
