    Kelly writes this stupid negative shit every week. He's unreadable. I highly doubt Kelly has even seen much of these kids.
  3. Habs sign Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

    No, I care because I like accuracy. We should look at what Friedmann actually said if its available, not a double translation of it. Basically its a game of telephone here. Take a paragraph in english, put it through google translate to french. Then take the new paragraph, put it through google translate from french back to English. What you get is not the same as what you started with. This is where inaccuracy happens, and it doesn't matter if its google or a bilingual speaker translating, everytime you translate something, something gets "lost in translation" so originals are always more accurate. And I didn't attack you personally, i merely said that you can post something that hasn't been translated twice... but if you want to attack me about that, I take offence to it.
  4. Habs sign Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

    I'm not doubting anyone. I heard the podcast myself. I'm saying there are always problems when you translate something to a new language.... so translating this twice means its not the same as the original.
  5. Habs sign Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

    I get that, but why wouldn't you get what Friedmann actually said.... instead of having Friedmann's words translated into french and then translated back to English again. Something can get lost in translation. Here is the actual podcast. Its right near the start. https://www.sportsnet.ca/podcasts/31-thoughts-podcast/july-11-2019-nazem-kadri-vetoed-trade-calgary/

    Thats not a reason to trade away a 21 year old.
  7. Habs sign Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

    Ok, My question though is that if the original source is Freidman and the 31 thoughts podcast, why would you take a french translation of what he said on that podcast, and then translate it back to English? Why the double translation?

    I've been saying this for a while. The Leafs and Tampa could be in the mix too depending on what Marner and Point get. This large number of teams needing to shed money and the relatively low number of teams that can take money makes this a great situation for Bergevin. He has a lot of leverage here. Lots of teams need cap space, and he's one of the few teams that has it. He can make out like a bandit here. Columbus is another team that can really make out well, with all the extra cap space they have.

    Guys... their names are TATAR AND HUDON. Not Tartar and Hundon. You ruin your credibility when you cant even spell the players name... and its just 5 letters. Its not that hard a name.

    You cant force free agents to sign. He tried to sign duchene. Duchene went to nashville. He tried to sign lee. Lee choose to stay where he is. He tried to re-sign Radulov. Radulov went to the no tax state in dallas. He tried to sign Tavares and Stastny. They didn't want to come. No one has signed Gardiner. I wonder why. The rumours are its his back injury. He give aho an offer sheet. It was matched. So what do you do at that point? In the last two years hes won big on trades (Domi, Tatar, Kulak,) while also building the prospect pool into one that is top 3 in the league. So the idea he is too cheap to buy a ufa? Madness.
  12. 2019 NHL Offseason Thread

    Exactly. The idea that the owner who just authorized an offer sheet with huge bonuses is cheap. The idea that the owner who authorized bringing in Mason last year so we could add Armia and draft picks is cheap. Its just asinine.
  13. 2019 NHL Offseason Thread

    They can be called up for injuries. I also expect the Habs to add one more forward (a true top 6 guy) before we open the season. It will be via trade with a team in cap trouble.
  14. Lehkonen Signs 2.4m/Year

    He is Finnish, he just can't score.
  15. 2019 NHL Offseason Thread

    Wait... its October 3rd and the Season is starting? Where did the summer go? You do realize that we made a pretty big trade in September last year right?
  16. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I wonder if minnesota still wants to trade Zucker and what they are looking for. He reminds me of a poor man's Mark Stone.
  17. Lehkonen Signs 2.4m/Year

    I think you are better off spreading them through the lineup than going all three on one line.
  18. Armia 2yr $2.6/yr

    My biggest misses were predicting guys who would walk, who then got re-signed. But I can't be mad at this deal, nothing wrong with it. The two year term is ideal. If he plays well, extend him again, if not he walks as a UFA.

    Ferlands numbers and profile are pretty similar to shaw.

    1) He's not a centre as I already said. He wasn't a centre in junior. They tried him at centre for 1 season in the AHL, it didn't work. Since his first year in the AHL he has played wing all but a few games, and maybe 1 or 2 games in the NHL... but he's not a centre. He's a left wing, with some ability to play RW. Only in an emergency would he ever be used at Centre. So there goes that argument. 2) No one is saying he is "so good"... but Puljujarvi isn't exactly showing that he is "so good" either. 3) His name still only has one N. Hudon
  21. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Hudon also isn't a center, so there is that and his name only has one N in it. So when you don't know his name, or his position, we do need to be "realistic on who Hudon is in the NHL." Hudon and Puljujarvi are basically at the same point in the NHL. Neither is worth much. Puljujarvi might be worth slightly more than Hudon (who I don't think gets you a third rounder) but its not much. The fourth overall pick means nothing today, just like when they traded Yakupov for a 3rd round pick, his first overall status meant nothing. The Oilers were reportedly willing to move him for a 2nd round pick, or third line player at the draft. Hudon + 3rd rounder is probably fair value IMO. At least Hudon has one good NHL season under his belt, Puljujarvi despite the high draft status, doesn't even have that.

    There is balance in your post. Its fine to not like MB on the whole, but its a whole different conversation to not give him any credit either. You can come out on the negative side of the equation without showing bias.

    Oh for sure. There are going to be updates on how his back is healing sent to any team doctor whose gm has shown the least bit of interest. The better the results are. The more it heals from last season the more interest there will be If rehab is an issue the little interest he has will fall off even more. This is fluid.

    I dont constantly downvote... i did H29 but i think ive explained why i think what he says has no value. When someone only gives negative opinions (or conversely only gives positive opinions) and is clearly biased... i consider their opinion to have no value. A smart, unbiased person is able to talk about both positive and negatives with the team. Obviously bergevin isnt perfect. Every move made isnt automatically a mistake either. When someone takes either side of that coin... their opinions mean nothing to me as the bias leaks through. I cant take such a person seriously. I value intelligent discussion. Bias does not contribute to that.
