  1. He was drafted by Bergevin, he is a bust. And if he isn't a bust, then Bergevin will ruin him. And if he isn't ruined by development, then Bergevin will trade him away for a fourth liner who sucks. And if he isn't traded away, then it will be luck, and Bergevin gets no credit.
  2. How is it not fair to Hudon.... This season, 1g 1a in 15 NHL games, and not very good defensively. Last season... 3g 2a in 32 NHL games. He does not produce enough offensively, He's a liability defensively. There is no other way to say this, He's not an NHL player.
  3. Yeah, Dlbalr is right, he's been really good in the AHL. He feels like the Hudon of the defence though, as when we called him up, he was terrible in the NHL. Classic Quadruple-A player, but the AHL team needs those. Especially if the NHL allows a compliance buyout here, cuase if that happens, you know Alzner will be gone.
  4. This sucks for the draftees, as the draft will likely be held in hotel like in 2005, or via conference call or something like that, and they won't be able to attend in person.
  5. Its not necessarily about being injury prone. Its basically 2 full years off the ice before he turns 21. That is a huge loss of time in terms of developing as a player and its hard to replace that lost time. Others, who he used to be ahead of, he will now be behind.
  6. The first Bruins playoff win in 45 years against the Habs was in 1988. The Habs beat them in 1989 The Bruins would beat them in the next four meetings... 1990, 1991, 1992, and 1994. The Habs wouldn't get a series win over Boston in the 90s, taking the next series in 2002, then in 2004, and 2009, before losing in 2011, and winning again in 2014.
  7. There is a transfer agreement with Finland though, so nothing stops them from signing him next summer if they want to. However, at this point, I think he needs a huge season to be considered. The contract slots are limited and all his injuries have cast doubt on his future.
  8. I started watching in 1989 Habs 1.) Patrick Roy 2.) Stephane Richer 3.) Chris Chelios 4.) Russ Courtnall 5.) Kirk Muller Non-Habs 1.) Mario 2.) Jagr 3.) Gretzky 4.) Brett Hull 5.) Pavel Bure
  9. Ontario is shutting down all non-essential business tomorrow.
  10. Sometimes players bloom late so they go undrafted. Panarin was undrafted. Tyler Bozak has had a nice career for an NCAA free agent. Andy MacDonald was a top 6 centre on a Cup Winning team after being an NCAA free agent. Torey Krug, Chris Kunitz, Dustin Penner. As for now, its not that teams keep passing on him, its that he chooses to keep staying in school. He can't return to school if he signs, once he does that he's out. That said, don't expect big things from these guys..... 40 or so sign every year. 10-15 end up as ECHLers for life 20-25 end up as productive AHL players. 4-5 make it to the NHL at some point in their careers (usually in the bottom 6 forwards, or bottom pair D) ... and every once in a while, one of them becomes a top 6 forward or top 4 D. It happens but its rare. Still these are prospects that cost nothing but a little money and a contract slot to acquire.
  11.

  12. I'm hoping for complaints about why Bergevin is an idiot for this signing.
  13. Moving from an AHL contract to an NHL one. https://www.nhl.com/canadiens/news/canadiens-agree-to-terms-on-a-one-year-contract-with-alex-belzile/c-316230686
