  1. Habs acquire Hunter Shinkaruk

    So does Bergevin have a curse on him that he HAS to make a trade at least once every 4 months or else he loses his fashion sense?
  2. The playoffs have ended, the Stanley Cup has been awarded, and the Draft and Free Agency are weeks away. Capfriendly has provided a handy chart for key dates this summer:
  3. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    Hope not. Might as well keep him if those are the type of offers floating around.
  4. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I'm 45% sure you just posted this so we'd all see your name in the article
  5. Why will you watch the 2018-19 Habs?

    Someone please get this man some help.
  6. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    I actually thought that was bad writing. To make reference to "another Marc Bergevin special" you need to have already mentioned "a Marc Bergevin special."
  7. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    https://nhl.nbcsports.com/2018/07/27/5-logical-landing-spots-for-max-pacioretty/ Joey Alfieri lists Chicago, Edmonton, LA, New Jersey, and San Jose as logical trade partners for Pacioretty. I would personally add Pittsburgh and Dallas to the mix as well. I hope this doesn't drag out til training camp. Max is going to be miserable talking to reporters.
  8. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    If you don't take into account any history than sure, it's an extra pick, but the Habs have traded away their own 7th then traded future 7ths to get a 7th in the same year of their initially traded away 7th... There is no extra pick here. It's just playing catch up for a 7th they traded years ago. Having Winnipeg's 7th rounder from the Armia deal is their first chance at getting an actual "extra" pick from dealing future 7ths for current ones.
  9. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    Or they could stop trading their future 7th round picks so that they can just pick with them?
  10. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    I mean... the Habs basically do this every year.
  11. Hockey Billeting, has anyone done it?

    Hopefully a future Habs draft pick!
  12. Habs re-sign Phillip Danault

    I'm a bit surprised a longer deal wasn't sought after by Bergevin. Even if Danault ends up being replaceable in 4 seasons, why wouldn't you want the option to trade a guy with term than not?
  13. Qualifying Offer Thread

    Looks like neither Rychel or McCarron accepted their QO's.
  14. Joel Armia signs a one-year deal

    For a 14th forward spot though? I'd expect they'd rather risk putting McCarron on waivers if it means he might get more ice time in Laval over warming the bench in Montreal. Froese makes so much more sense for that spot... one-way contract, league minimum, centre.
  15. Joel Armia signs a one-year deal

    Assuming Shaw and Byron are both still on IR at the start of the season, and assuming that no injuries happen in preseason, AND assuming that no trades are made that reduce the # of roster players... it's looking like there are 3 roster spots available; the 12th, 13th, and 14th forwards. Vying for those spots will be Deslauriers, De La Rose, Froese, Rychel, and McCarron. Outside of them both having outstanding training camps, I don't see Rychel or McCarron beating out any of those guys for the right to sit on the bench. Might as well attempt to sneak them to the AHL and try to squeeze some more development out of them.
  16. Joel Armia and Philip Danault. Here's the full list of all 44 players around the NHL who all elected salary arbitration: https://www.nhlpa.com/news/1-15179/44-players-elect-salary-arbitration
  17. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    Chicago now needs 5 more forwards (2nd line winger, 3rd line winger, 4th line winger, two depth players) and another defenseman (#7 guy). I dunno how many of those spots are gonna be filled internally, but I expect we'll see Chicago picking up some of the remaining free agents.
  18. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Arizona doing the deal Montreal should be doing.
  19. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    Plus no scout wants any footage released of them projecting a player's path incorrectly. That being said... others have extrapolated from the footage that it looks like Zadina wasn't taken by the Habs because of poor combine results, and it looks like the Habs were one of the teams that had Ryan Merkley on their "Do Not Draft" list.
  20. 2018 NHL Entry Draft Thread

    https://www.nhl.com/canadiens/video/behind-the-scenes-2018-nhl-draft/t-277437414/c-60776003 Not a whole lot of specifics in this behind the scenes look at the Habs draft, but scout Ken Morin says of Cole Fonstad, "If you're looking for that home run potential, Fonstad could be that guy." Also, the Habs were going to select Cam Hillis with Washington's 2nd round pick, but traded it to Edmonton for picks #71 and #133. With their next pick at 66 they took... Cam Hillis. It was a 4 pick risk, but they got their guy.
  21. Habs hire Luke Richardson as Assistant Coach

    He was the Islanders defence coach last year, so the Habs might have actually found a downgrade from JJ.
  22. Permanent Rumour Thread

    I know Markov is a LD and Weber is RD so it doesn't make sense positionally, but if Molson and Bergevin are looking for a feel-good story after learning that Weber won't be back til December, then getting Markov out of his KHL contract and onto the Habs for a season would definitely work on me. 1 year, $4 000 000, NTC. He gets to 1000+ games with the Habs, probably moves into the top 15 all-time in points, and if he wants a shot at a cup then he can pick a contender that wants some PP help in the playoffs. It's a much better ending to his career as a Habs than a contract dispute.
  23. Injury news

    I feel like Weber's last game played was in November? December? He's probably going a full year without playing hockey, right?
  24. Are they better than Tampa, Boston, Toronto, and Florida? No, we're not making the playoffs this season. #LoseForHughes
  25. De La Rose re-signs

    2 years, $900 000 AAV.
