  1. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    I think Pitt and Islanders will be interesting series. Isles just went up 3-2, good to see...i gotta pull for Islanders this year.
  2. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    2012-13 was the last year Babcock won a playoff series. Great to see them lose to Bruins...NOW come on Columbus, another sweep (just too bad they have an idiot for a coach).
  3. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    Many likely picked them to be bottom feeder once again, after going 21st, 21st, 18th & 26th in the last 4 years and hadnt been in playoffs since 08-09.
  4. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    Watch me!
  5. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    Hate to say Bruins, but.
  6. Didnt say they did draft more french and dont really care, but Bergevin is a nice guy and wanted to make Donald happy and Houde, like i said just didnt like pick and my guess is "we have to take at least 1 french kid this year or i wont hear the end of it!" pick . And trading the 62nd - 2nd round pick, down 9 spots to add a 16g 32pt scoring 5th round pick in Houde, still seems a waste to me?
  7. POLL: How do you feel about the future?

    Optimistic abut next year for sure. Biggest question, what valuable piece(s), that will be painful to lose, will it cost to round out the top 4 d-men and put at least one quality (no disrespect to Mete but...) guy on the left side.
  8. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    Will Vegas polish off the Sharks tonight. Guess not! And Blues come from down 2-0 to win 3-2, poor Jets bowing out again?
  9. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    Suzuki 1a in 7-2 loss. McShane 3a in 6-4 loss.
  10. Christian Folin re-signs

    Nice to hear, hopefully pushes Reilly to free agency. Will Benn ask for too much $$ to stay, or will even make him an offer? Weber, Petry, Juulsen, Folin on right side Mete, Benn, Kulak on left side Be great to see Mete pushed to 2nd pairing by some quality newcomer.
  11. Does Audette's father scout for other organizations? Would you of chosen 16g 32pt Houde? They hadnt taken a french kid in 2017 nor the 1st 9 picks of 2018, i say he was token pick to keep RDS and other locals from freaking out. At least undrafted Teasdale looks like a better prospect.
  12. Am sure Donald Audette, as Quebec amateur scout was unbiased in his assessment (right up there with LaCarriere hiring his son (out of nowhere) as assistant coach of Hamilton). So why not waste 5th round picks I guess, they did again this year with Samual Houde...and we can know why he was chosen, after picking 9 non-french kids, had to take at least one Quebec born. But like you hint, 5th round picks I guess are pretty worthless and can be wasted.
  13. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    Great to see them beat Flames, another upset would be neat.
  14. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    5-0 for Dallas! I like it!
  15. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    Romanov hasnt played since March 4, but CSKA is up 3-0 in series. (I assume he is the #8 or#9 d-man and being a rookie likely doesnt help?) Suzuki plays Saginaw tomorrow McShane plays Ottawa tomorrow. Teasdale plays Friday vs Rimouski Fonstad's team plays Friday vs Edmonton (he may be out injured?)
  16. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    Pacioretty career: 0.69pts/gm in playoffs 0.70pt/gm in reg season
  17. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    No one, for a guy who was demoted to bottom six forward. Is a typical HabFan proposal, deal away a player who isnt a fan favourite for a better quality player. Most GMs would be tad more interested in a Gallagher or Domi or top prospect than Drouin...but propose trading any of those players and HabFans get 'excited'.
  18. Pretty attractive package; but, Skating is "good for his size" and that may be key...ask Mike McCarron how important that is for a big guy. He is almost old enough for last years draft, so he should of been more dominating reg season vs mostly smaller younger kids. Also see noted "offensive instincts/decision-making" questions marks. And defense is lacking. But, he is still ranked right around 12th-15th by bunch of people. I assume his size, RH shot and 'OK' offense with super playoff results has some seeing as a good pro down the road. Brian Boyle-type?
  19. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    4g 10pts in 4gms, not too shabby! I like seeing him do well.

  21. Injury news

    Dr Recchi's maybe.
  22. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    6-3 Columbus...awesome! 2-1 Isles leading in 3rd also
  23. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    Suzuki +5, 2nd star of game and player of week (10pts in 4gms). Awesome 4 game sweep after being down 3-0 in series. http://ontariohockeyleague.com/article/storms-nick-suzuki-named-chl-player-of-the-week
