  1. Fighting in pro hockey... Good-Bad?

    Football and rugby have contact in the game to make a play, they don't have a weapon in their hands and use it like hockey players do unnecessarily. Like I said earlier, if I get hit with a weapon on purpose, as a man I believe I have the right to defend myself and to ensure it doesn't happen again. I'm not going to cry to the ref and hope the bad man sits in the penalty box for 2 minutes to think about what he did. I do hate staged fights though and think those are what should be out of the game. Heat of the moment fights? Oh baby pass the popcorn
  2. Fighting in pro hockey... Good-Bad?

    Difference of opinion on how the game should be played, there are no right answers here so just keep that in mind while you're riding around on your high horse.
  3. Poll: Who should be Captain?

    Weber will wear the C. Him and Price will be the backbone of this team for a long time.
  4. Fighting in pro hockey... Good-Bad?

    Fighting is a part of the game as much as elbowing, roughing, cross checking, spearing, etc. Do we like those penalties? This is a man's sport. If you're not a man, don't play it. There are plenty of men that would love the opportunity to do so. If a guy viciously slashes me (illegal), I would punch him in the face (illegal). Why is a slash to the wrist or legs acceptable from some prick but if a guy stands up for himself with a punch he is the bad guy? Or we can just take contact out of the sport all together and skate around in tutus, either way.
  5. Max Pacioretty Watch

    Perhaps you're unable to communicate without spit flying out of your mouth at 135 mph, but there are many Habs fans that would like to talk about certain topics without everything coming back to shitting on the GM. It has poisoned this site and it's a damn shame
  6. Max Pacioretty Watch

    *checks Habsworld forum* Same few people shitting on Bergevin and that is all that's going on *leaves Habsworld forum* Surely there can be a conversation, or at least a post about the Canadiens that doesn't involve the General Manager, as he is only one part of the team. I highly doubt it though with this crew
  7. You obviously didn't read what I wrote so NVM
  8. It's almost as if you don't watch hockey every year. There are always teams that surprise, whether it's over or underachieving. There are NO locks to make the playoffs. Do I think this current roster of Canadiens will make the playoffs? No. Do I think that they can? Yes. There is alot more that goes into a full season than the team on paper on July 6th
  9. I always find it funny that when teams pick up players in the off season it always makes them better. People tend to forget the players they are losing, or that injuries happen, chemistry issues, players regressing, etc. Even the newly appointed Cup champ Maple Leafs lost Van Riemsdyk and Bozak, but because they added Tavares they improved the most. It's the same narrative every off season for every team. Everybody got better! So tell us, how is "almost every team" going to be better?
  10. Good call, I voted that they can. Do I think they will? If I was betting, which I usually do, no.
  11. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    The Habs already have 147 Duclairs under contract, signing this one isn't going to change the outlook one way or another.
  12. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    You're really complaining that they didn't offer a contract to Anthony "didn't receive a qualifying offer and is on his 4th NHL team by age 23" Duclair? Of all of the things to complain about, this is a point of contention for you?
  13. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    You guys must have missed the part where I said it was dumb. And also to note, that if a team is taking Bobby Ryan as well, that will diminish the return for Karlsson.
  14. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    This is dumb and makes no sense for us to do, but whatever: To Montreal: Erik Karlsson and Bobby Ryan To Ottawa: Jeff Petry, Nikita Scherbak, 2019 2nd round pick, 2020 1st round pick
  15. Tavares not coming to Montreal thread

    We can't just paint every player with the same brush, Stamkos and Tavares are different people. It certainly helped that Toronto is on the upswing yes, but even if Montreal was in the same position, do you think he still chooses here over there?
  16. Could our lineup look like this

    I see you're well into your Canada day pops
  17. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    As much as I wanted O'Reilly, I think everyone can agree it was a great decision not to trade for him considering the cost?
  18. Permanent Rumour Thread

    And Duclair has to think about that?? Is there a better offer in the KHL? And thankfully the Habs don't want that guy at 5 mill per over 5. I'd rather give Alzner a raise than commit that much dough to him, no matter how much cap space is available. Man these are dark times
  19. Tavares not coming to Montreal thread

    And I'm certain better teams like the Lightning and Sharks would have easily paid him at least 11m per season. This was mostly about going home.
  20. Habs re-sign Tomas Plekanec

    Sweet, picked up the Leafs best center from the playoffs
  21. Tavares not coming to Montreal thread

    In this instance is that wrong though?
  22. Joel Armia and Steve Mason for Simon Bourque

    I guess it depends what the deal with Stastny will end up being, I didn't want to overpay him too much. But I definitely want some semblance of a hockey player that can play center. Is getting Armia fair value though compared to other cap dumps? I remember the Hawks giving up Terravainen and I'm sure there are other examples.
  23. Joel Armia and Steve Mason for Simon Bourque

    So rather than pursue Stasney tomorrow, they help Winnipeg clear space to sign him? And all we get is an overpaid goalie and Joel Armia? I guess I'm in the minority on this one, not that I'm not used to that.
  24. July 1st NHL free agency

    That's a fair point. If he didn't acquire him to play center then maybe something else he had planned fell through or some players didn't step up. I just hate the narrative that Bergevin is a frigging drooling moron that can't tie his own shoes. Nominated for GM of the year, team Canada executive, multiple division wins. Give me a break
  25. July 1st NHL free agency

    Bergevin. You hate Bergevin. Bergevin. This is all about Bergevin for you. Bergevin. He traded Subban. You hate him for that. It is clear as day. You used to be a reasonable and open minded poster until that day. One of my favorites. No longer. It all comes back to that trade for you. Using words like leadership and character to trash Bergevin doesn't change the fact that this team would be any better off. Subban on this team doesn't make it more of a contender no matter what you say. RAH RAH
