  1. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    The thing with trades is that it takes two teams to agree on the deal. Do we think Bergevin didn't inquire about those players at all? Swoop in and make Carolina take the deal? We should hire Habs29 to be GM.
  2. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    Thanks for the shout out I'm sure Zadina will be a fine player, I just never liked him as the #3 overall to the Habs.

    Islanders with a horseshoe up their ass being able to pick Wahlstrom and Dobson. Lamoriello licking his chops at resigning JT
  4. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    Well trading down with Arizona likely wasn't an option as they picked a center
  5. 2018 draft thread

    Yes please. I've watched that kid play a million times and I don't recall him ever turning the puck over, and if he did he got it right back. Super smart, good wheels and vision.
  6. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I rode the bus from Kanata to Ottawa after the Habs eliminated the Sens in game 6 a few ago. Me and a few Habs fans had the same chant but the context was the total opposite. Perhaps the chant you heard was a result of my bus ride Haha
  7. 2018 draft thread

    Well, today is the day that many were hoping for during the pathetic season we just had. This pick is supposed to be the light at the end of the tunnel during that forgettable time. Go Habs go!?
  8. 2018 draft thread

    The thing is that a #1 center actually has more value than a top line winger even if the skill level is equal. So if the skill level of the winger is slightly better, then that will offset the values.
  9. 2018 draft thread

    I think I will be very surprised if they don't pick Kotkaniemi at #3 or trade down to draft him. After all of these years of saying how hard it is to acquire a 1C, this is the time to pull the trigger. Even if it is a bit of reach to grab him there, I think they pretty much have to at this point.

    Ottawa was forced to trade him, which put them at a disadvantage during negotiations compared to San Jose
  11. Galchenyuk traded for Domi

    Again, we are complaining about Domi's decline in goal totals but are ignoring Galchenyuk's.
  12. Galchenyuk traded for Domi

    He can't? Lets see what he does before calling the trade a bust. Galchenyuk's whopping 19 goals last year was much better? His goal totals have declined in the past 3 seasons
  13. Galchenyuk traded for Domi

    He got injured. He was on pace for 13 goals and 40 assists as a sophomore. That's not lighting the net on fire but his overall production was still solid. Did anybody have any concerns about Galchenyuk's declining goal totals of 30-23(adjusted for injury) and 19? There has been so much emphasis on "trading a 30 goal scorer", whereas he only reached that plateau in one season and hasn't scored more than 20 in a single year. I think we all had fantasies of him finally putting it all together becoming a #1 C and putting up a bunch of points but it seems that the reality seems to be that he is what he is, a capable yet inconsistent scorer. Somebody here made the comparison to Andrei Kostitsyn, and to me that's a great comparison. A player that possesses all of the tools but not the tool box to use them. Here's a decent article for anyone that might still think about jumping off the ledge: http://www.lapresse.ca/sports/mathias-brunet/201806/18/01-5186204-galchenyuk-deboulonnons-certains-mythes.php
  14. Galchenyuk traded for Domi

    Domi will wear #13 for the Habs Meanwhile Karl Alzner will snatch up Galchenyuk's #27, ugh
  15. 2018 draft thread

    It figures in a year where the Habs "win" at the draft lottery to move up a spot to #3, there is no clear cut consensus player in that position. And it's not even between a couple players, you could make the argument for like 8 guys being picked there. I'd hate to be Bergevin on that podium. Man I hope we get this one right
  16. 2018 draft thread

    Fair warning, he has never been wrong about anything, just ask him and he'll tell you
  17. Fire Bergevin

    Yes sir, I found it quite "funny" that I made my first post in a while and it was about wanting to keep him till the end, and then he got traded hours later. We are going to love Domi though Remember that Galchenyuk didn't even crack the under 23 North American team at the World Cup despite being one of the most veteran players. The guy has had some issues off the ice, we don't know what's true or not though, but there was definitely some things that were apparent. He did want to play center and management basically told him that's not going to happen. I guess we will have to see if he gets the chance in Arizona and how it works out.
  18. Fire Bergevin

    This is a great argument, we traded a LW for a LW, we don't need that. I had hopes that Galchenyuk could eventually become the center he was drafted to be. I also thought that his value was diminished because of that, so for that reason I wanted to hang onto him. But here we are.
  19. Fire Bergevin

    If you paid attention, I didn't like the trade. But the way people are going on it seems that we gave away Mike Bossy for David Desharnais. The two players are identical in ppg over their careers. If you want to break it down by age, it's 0.4 ppg in difference, WOW. And no, it's not like saying we should give the 3rd pick for the 4th, am I the only one around here that has any logic? Forwards vs defensemen, draft picks vs draft picks....what the hell are we talking about? One is a better play maker with more intangibles and one is a better goal scorer with a higher ceiling. That is what it is.

  21. Galchenyuk traded for Domi

    Habs world logic: We hate the Subban trade because he is an all around better player. Some guy with an opinion: Well, Weber scored over 3x the amount of goals that Subban did, and this team needs to score goals. Habs world logic : Yeah but Subban creates offense, look at those assists. Montreal trades Galchenyuk for Domi: Habs world logic: We hate that trade, we need to score goals and Galchenyuk does it better. Some guy with an opinion: Yeah but their points per game are the same.... Habs world logic: Something about defensemen vs forwards?
  22. Fire Bergevin

    No, I clearly stated the logic of complaining about Domi's lack of goals, but yet being okay with Subban's lack of goals compared to Weber. Goals are goals regardless of position. And didn't I already talk to you about position?

  24. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Just to make it clear, there is a difference between talent/skill and being able to be a successful NHL player.
