  1. DEVILS AT HABS - 7:30 PM - DECEMBER 14TH - GDT

    assist of the year. https://twitter.com/shaynepasquino/status/941505838719684608
  2. DEVILS AT HABS - 7:30 PM - DECEMBER 14TH - GDT

    Why narratives are silly. "After the goal they look like a team that wanted out" oh really? So what happened five minutes later when they picked up their game, leading to Benn's tying goal and eventually to winning the game in OT. Did they start slow? Hell yes. No one likes that first five minutes of the game. But the idea that it was the result of players "wanting out". Thats a narrative to explain the poor start, and one that doesn't make sense when the team picked up their play after that. Most times a bad start is just a bad start, and its not about "wanting out" or some other narrative about a team not trying. The Devils were playing well. The Habs were making mistakes in their own zone. That was what happened. Not some narrative about the team wanting to be traded, or something. P.S. Plekanec is clutch.
  3. Mete to the World Juniors

    Mete wouldn't have been loaned if there was any chance he was getting cut. The junior program wouldn't do that to Montreal.

    Plekanec is so starting the next 10 OTs
  5. DEVILS AT HABS - 7:30 PM - DECEMBER 14TH - GDT

    Benn made up for his mistake

    Where was JOrdie Benn going?
  7. Why does Trevor Timmins get so much love?

    The division. Ottawa, Detroit and Buffalo are pure shit. Florida is behind us and Luongo is out long term. 3 teams have to make the playoffs... so its Montreal vs Boston for third. They are not going to fall out of this race anytime soon.

    There was a good discussion on drafting compared to other NHL teams in here the other day. here is a link The reality is that the Habs drafting from 2003-2007 was outstanding, with the team far outpacing NHL averages and getting multiple high impact players. the 2008-2011 drafts were really rough. the 2012-2016 drafts have shown an uptick. Between 2008 - 2011 we traded away multiple picks, a first rounder in 2008, and seconds in 2009, 2010, 2011, as well as multiple thirds and other picks. We really only drafted two decent players in those 4 drafts which is a problem. We have a real gap in our team in players aged 25-28

    The deal hinges on how good Drouin can be. Always did.

    my only caution is its 8 games, which is really small of a sample, but he's been great.

    Brook has looked fantastic. He might be our best defence prospect (and that includes Mete).
  12. Dec. 9, Oilers vs Habs, 7 PM

    Personally I find the NBA to be the worst of the four leagues in terms of intrigue and excitement. That is not a model that i would want the NHL to follow. Free Agents always going to the same teams and the bottom of the league has no hope. Milwaukee for example... can't attract free agents, no hope of ever being truly competitive in the NBA. Have maybe their best team ever right now with Giannis and company, but you know it won't last cause Giannis will go to a big market as soon as he can.

    Its Josh Brook, our second rounder last year. He started the season injured, but he has looked fantastic since returning. Dominant in both ends of the ice. It is early, but that start is really encouraging.
  14. Dec. 9, Oilers vs Habs, 7 PM

    Do we really want a league where star players up and move all the time, and don't get identified with their teams anymore. Isn't it good to have someone be the face of a franchise for 10-15 years.
  15. Mete to the World Juniors

    no, its the same as if he's sent to London.
