  1. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    Great work Commandant.
  2. This article from Arpun Basu is very good, it summarizes many of the character and attitude problems the CH had in 2017-2017 (I'll try to summarize for those not able to read it) https://theathletic.com/399175/2018/06/19/an-annotated-history-of-the-canadiens-attitude-problem/ How much of this is a real problem? And how can it be changed this off season?
  3. Plekanec traded to Leafs

    Olofsson (56 overall 2018) Valiev (68 overall 2014) , Rychel (19 overall 2013) for Pleks, that was not a bad trade after all. We have to give Bergevin some credit here If Plekanec comes back to center our 4th line, that may be really good if he can mentor the Canadiens center prospects
  4. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    I am ok with this draft, last year's didn't seem like a great year for the Habs but their prospects seem to trending up I think that the Pacioretty contract or trade will define the Hab's summer I still hope for an UFA signing, one of the LDs available
  5. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    I don't know much about him, from the comments I figured he may have been available later. I read he had a great turnament but I didn't watch him play Iy was more a comment in picking Oloffson who was ranked higher
  6. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

  7. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

  10. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    Great choice, kudos to Bergevin to go for a long term choice instead of an NHL ready pick that could name him look good tonsave his job Now let's see what we get get with our 4 senconds tomorrow
  11. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

  12. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    For the draft pick and the center prospect Fortbort can play with Petry. We cannot fill all the holes in one trade
  13. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    With and the rummors of a trade between LAK and MTL, here is my proposal: Pacioretty & Valiev for LAK 20th overall & Forbort & Anderson-Dolan
  14. 2018 draft thread

    Let's trade Pacioretty and à LD (like Valiev) to NYI for one of their 1st round picks and rights for DeHaan
  15. Permanent Rumour Thread

    I agree 100% if we trade him, we will miss him like Leclaire , Recchi, etc
  16. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Ok but I was just replying whom I would trade before trading Pacioretty, again for hockey reasons
  17. Permanent Rumour Thread

    A rebuild is meant to improve the team, not to pander to the player's wishes I would keep my goal scorers under contract, and have at least an elite 1st pairing D. But would trade Price and expensive contracts
  18. Permanent Rumour Thread

    My preference is to trade for an elite LD I do not think he would fetch a 1C without also giving one of the Canadiens assets. Tht's why I do not want to go there I much rader trade Price if we are going for a rebuild
  19. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Same here. I like Pacioretty. For all the hate he gets, he has been a consistent goal scorer for years more than Galchenyuk was (as an example of someone who most didn't want traded) But if we move him, it had to be for a Muzzin, Kleform or 1st-round-pick&NHL-prospects othetwise, it just doesn't make sense for hockey reasons
  20. The need for an attitude change

    I know, but I give Arpon credit for filtering through those superficial/canned comments. I could not cut and paste for copyright reasons; but he seems to have done his homework to come to his conclusion that the season was lost from training g camp because of a lack of talent and frustration from core players due to that, combined with Price's poor performance and Weber's injury Bergevin has to improve the roster to fix the source of the attitude problem
  21. The need for an attitude change

    January/2 * 4-1 loss at home to San Jose after 2-5-0 road trip. Fan reaction is silent indifference => Julien acknowledges uneven commitment from players. Hopes for desire to make difference in games January/7 * Bergevin's mid-season press conference, 17-20-4 record => Bergevin acknowledges that: (a) team lacks talent, (b) Douin's ideal position is wing but for now can help the team best at center, (c) resetting tram around Price and Weber instead of rebuild January/17 * 4-1 loss to Boston on Julien's return since firing => Julien suggests asking players directly if they have given up on season January/30 * 3-1 loss to St-Louis after all-star break => Pacioretty shows frustration on repetitive questions about inability to win. Admits on the obvious lack of talent when compared to opposing teams. February/4 * 4-1 win over Ottawa at home. => Plekanec comments on how bad start of season became a mental obstacle to find confidence and edge February/20 * 3-2 overtime loss in Philadelphia => Julien mentions again how the team is "not good enough": (a) because of types of mistakes being made, (b) not executing on "little details" of game, (c) not being consistent, (d) not find the extra level in play the team has
  22. The need for an attitude change

    November/11 * 2-1 win against Buffalo thanks to Lindgren => Win came despite team play: "not good enough" November/16 * 5-4 loss to Arizona after Deslaurier's fight turns momentum => Embarrassing turn of events, Unacceptable to lack concentration, Disappointing team performance December/9 * 6-2 loss to Edmonton at home => Julien makes reference to lack of talent December/16 * 3-0 loss to Ottawa in outdoor game. Canadiens record is 14-15-4 => One of the worst games of the season for Drouin and Galchenyuk => Price declines to talk about the game and rambles about playing outdoors => Weber's last game
  23. The need for an attitude change

    And some of the highlights of date/events refered to: September/17 * Red-White training camp scrimmage => Julien observes that Canadiens roster is inadequate. September/21 * training camp => Danault mentions Lack of work ethic October/8 * 2-0 loss to NYR after outshooting them 34-25 => Gallagher mentions that team seems satisfied with easy play, should strive for more October/14-17 * Series of losses => Price takes blame, admits that he has to play better October/19 * Off day in Anaheim => Pacioretty upset with his play (before going into 10 game streak). Says he can't tell others to do better while he is underperforming. October/20 * 6-2 loss in Anaheim, Price breaks his stick on goal post => Price acknowledges being frustrated => Gallagher hopes team will "start looking at ourselves in the mirror" to stop being outworked by opposition October/25 * Media address after practice, 2-6-1 record; before winning 5 of the next 7 => “The answer is in that dressing room, […] It’s them. There’s no one coming from the outside to help us. We’re all in this together.” Bergevin
  24. The need for an attitude change

    Ok, as promised, here is a summary of the article. First some quotes: "I’ve struggled with this story, I’ll admit. It’s something I’ve worked on since the end of the Canadiens season, off and on, because I feel it’s important, if for no other reason than the general manager apparently feels it is of the utmost importance." Arpon Basu "So, in an effort to figure out what he was talking about, I went through every story I wrote this season, in excess of 200 of them, to find signs I might have missed. And, in Bergevin’s defence, they are there." Arpon Basu "[…]I think that attitude problem had a lot to do with the players realizing over the course of the season that the Canadiens were not a very good team. Which, ultimately, falls on Bergevin." Arpon Basu "[…] if Bergevin truly wants to fix the attitude problem on the Canadiens he will need to make it so his roster has no holes, or at least not as many of them." Arpon Basu
