    I turned the tv on to watch this game and it was already 3-0, then I promptly turned the tv off. 30 shots in a period? The lack of scoring is an anomaly of epic proportions.
  2. Bergevin......

    I'm not saying it's impossible to have success with a large % of cap space on a goalie, I'm saying that it is less likely because you can get elite goaltending from most guys in the league for a certain period of time. It's just more likely that an elite goalie will put it together during that time than an average goalie. I have no problem resigning Price at all, it was THE only option at that time. The Markov non-resigning is the #1 thing that I did not like under the Bergevin regime. He is a life long Hab and has been the most important player to this team for a good chunk of his career. A very underrated player and one that we desperately need...and there was more than enough money for him
  3. HABS @ KINGS, OCT 18

    No question that Weber would be better suited for the Captaincy, but I am a firm believer that you do not strip someone of the C and still have them as a member of your team.
  4. Bergevin......

    Which is why I dislike the thought of having 10.5 million tied up in the goaltender position for 8 years. Even though I believe Price is worth that amount on the market, it really does handcuff a team from strengthening itself in other areas. And especially in an organization like the Habs who seemingly develop studs in net all the time, it would be beneficial for them to capture some sort of lightning in a bottle with a McNevin or Lindrgren during a playoff run, while spending Price's money elsewhere.

    No sense beating ourselves up about any of Sergachev's success. We knew we were trading what could be a top 2 dman in exchange for some scoring punch up front. Also locking in Drouin at 5.5 is a steal. And what would the offense be like if the trade didn't happen?
  6. Bergevin......

    There aren't any definitive team models that win Cups, it's all about match ups and hot streaks. As far as having a superstar goalie go all the way, it's just more likely that one would play at an elite level for the duration of the playoffs, but above average goalies can certainly do that as well.
  7. Bergevin......

    Bergevin if this keeps up any longer
  8. Bergevin......

    I think he will get a chance to fire some more bullets before he gets fired. I think that overall he has done a decent job, and if you look at each transaction independently from each other, he usually wins those. But it's not looking good at this point for Mr. Bergevin
  9. Who's to blame when it comes to Galchenyuk?

    You can perhaps draw a line from Julien's arrival and compare it to Galchenyuk's downfall, but there is zero chance it's the coach's fault for his lack of effort, inability to make a pass, or letting his man go completely untouched in the defensive zone.
  10. Who's to blame when it comes to Galchenyuk?

    Galchenyuk has found a familiar place on the 4th line today in practice. Who's to blame? I think it's fairly evident that it's entirely his fault, he has looked terrible to start the season. Usually he gets by with his skills and lacks any form of hockey I.Q, but even his skills are quite lackluster so far. He can't create anything out there, can't play defense, and can't even make a pass on the tape. His lack of effort and production is directly related to a decent percentage of the Hab's scoring woes. The guy is "supposed" to be one of the offensive catalysts on this team but is letting his teammates and us fans down. I have no problem with him playing on the 4th line because that's exactly where he deserves to be at this point.
  11. They also have a better record than 29 other teams. Do they all suck as well?
  12. Who's to blame when it comes to Galchenyuk?

    Max Pacioretty's goal totals in the last 5 full seasons: 33, 39, 37, 30, 35. Max Pacioretty's center for most of that: David Desharnais, with a sprinkle of Philip Danault So tell us exactly again how it's the "same problem any winger has if they are in this organization".
  13. There's critical, and then there's Cucumber critical; totally forgetting about a win That being said, I hope that the Habs come out flying in their home opener. It always seems to be a special night
  14. I can just quote this part to hopefully prevent people from jumping off the cliff. It's only been a few games, win or lose
