  1. Canadiens Re-Sign Antti Niemi

    Maybe you are correct and Habs should re-up and offer Pacioretty an extension ASAP. A 40 year old Markov, not sure would call him a thoroughbred, or one ready for glue-factory?
  2. Canadiens Re-Sign Antti Niemi

    Remember, your talking about Bergevin, so seems mandatory to put a negative spin on anything he has touched or failed to act on.

    Cap room, travel schedule in the east is a lot easier, original six team, good valued franchise.

    Thought Jets and Caps would be in finale. Could be 0-2 on that prophesy.

    Is the saviour coming, or not? http://montrealgazette.com/sports/hockey/nhl/hockey-inside-out/john-tavares-watch-continues-for-canadiens-fans

    Sven Andrighetto scores beauty shootout goal to start off the shootout of final game... then OEL ties it up followed by Forsberg scoring, which should do it.

  8. No, don't need every forward to be on the PK, just 4 of the 12. But, you missed the point I was trying to make, which was that #67 is one of best goal scorers over his career (for these days anyways), named captain by his teammates, was just about was killed playing for the Habs and he also is valuable as a penalty killer. Whereas ol #27 was superskilled with puck, had few more assists (for 4 seasons), not as good a goal scorer and played zero defensive hockey. BUT, which one seems beloved by most HabFans and which one seems to be almost 'despised', for lack of better word. Seems bit odd to me and maybe partly why some free agents want no part of playing in Quebec? Lead team in scoring every year; but, miss a breakaway and get ready to be Booed off the ice!
  9. Pacioretty 30g-29a/yr career + plays PK, voted captain by teammates; but many Hab fans seem to hate him for being a floater. Kovalev 26g-40a/yr for Habs, couldn't even spell PK and musta went to the Cammalleri school of back... or any kind of checking. Was never a big fan at all (should of traded him before he was let go), but he really was skilled stickhandler ill give him that and seems a fan favourite with most for sure. If look up 'floater' in dictionary, will see his picture not Pacioretty's. I think he managed to play 1300 NHL games without ever breaking a sweat.

    Why? I have no problem with how Vegas does and is kinda like a hujge underdog story,, bunch of rejext giving all the 1 finger salaute..especially Fleury.

  12. Will they add enough quality AHL vets, not as concerned with 'real' prospects as much, but guys like an Alex Henry to mentor the young d-men or a guy like Corey Locke/Nigel Dawes up front to do similar with young forwards.
