  2. http://www.habsworld.net/2019/07/michael-mccarrons-qualifying-offer-expires/ As per the final paragraph of the article, McCarron MUST be trying for more AHL money, right? I appreciate an athlete with the confidence/belief that they're a top talent, but two years in a row McCarron and his agent have played hard ball in negotiations and it's starting to come across as deluded.
  3. 2019 NHL Offseason Thread

    Rangers: They'll stash Beleskey in the minors, but they could still trade Kreider. I guess it would be nice to have him run into goalies opposite to Price. Flames: Gotta think they'd like to trade Frolik out. Brodie was a part of the Kadri deal that Nazem nixed. And of course... The Real Deal. Stars: Doubt they want Hanzal on the team anymore, but I don't know what they have to give up to get him off the team. Canucks: Eriksson wants out but is weilding his NTC. Benning has threatened him to play ball or go to the AHL. I can't imagine who they have lined up for that deal. Penguins: I reckon they're not attached to Bjustad. Someone might want him. Golden Knights: It's gotta be Ryan Reaves, right? Unless Vegas is going to fall into the "heavy won the cup" trap. Coyotes: They can put Hossa on LTIR. They can still add depth pieces without moving anyone out. I'll add the Bruins as a team in need. 8 million is not enough to sign McAvoy and Carlo. They'd probably give up quite a bit to get rid of Backes.
  4. 2019 NHL Offseason Thread

    Habsworld loves to rip on management. We just generally like to do it based on reality.
  5. 2019 NHL Offseason Thread

    I don't see it. Tatar - Danault - Gallagher Drouin - Domi - Byron Lehkonen - Kotkaniemi - Armia Cousins - Thompson - Weal Poehling with 4th line minutes isn't worth it, and unless Suzuki outplays Byron or Armia at wing in training camp then he's also better off in Laval playing in the top 6.
  6. Lehkonen Signs 2.4m/Year

    Higher cap hit than I expected. Thought he had less negotiating power than Armia, but the Habs haven't exactly been coy about how much they love Lehk.
  7. Armia 2yr $2.6/yr

    The term also gives Bergevin a little bit of leeway for the expansion draft.
  8. Armia 2yr $2.6/yr

    Happy with the deal. On all my capfriendly lineup checks I had Armia at 2.5 but for a longer term.
  9. Habs sign Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

    Is this the weak-ass narrative being peddled? Jesus christ.
  10. 2019 Rocket/Mariners Offseason Thread

    If Lindgren clears waivers would Primeau play in the ECHL?
  11. Habs sign Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

    He has to play there for 5 seasons. Do you expect him to publicly state "I really didn't want to come back here. They are basically holding me hostage until I can get out in 5 years. Also, to the fans of Carolina... #### you."?
  12. Habs sign Nick Cousins

    Laval is going to have depth this season if for no other reason than Bergevin thinks his bottom 3 is a bottom 6. Based on Julien's preferences I guess we can write Cousins, Thompson, Weal in pen for the 4th line, but the 13th forward is going to be a competition between Peca, Weise, Hudon, and Varone on who he hates the least on the final day of training camp. Not even gonna be shocked if it's Weise.
  13. Arbitration deadline at 5 PM today

    Armia and Lehkonen filing are both for contract negotiations. Hudon filing is literally just another bullet in his, "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, TRADE ME!" gun.
  14. Habs sign Nick Cousins

    Byron with Drouin and Domi.
  15. Habs sign Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

    They're going full out with their marketing and media on matching the offer. If they don't, that will be a bigger "#### you" to their own fans than it would be to Montreal. They're just going to wait the whole 7 days to do it so they can a) inconvenience the Habs on a rather minor scale, and b) have more time to scrape together an extra 11 million for Aho's bonus that they'll owe him 5 days after officially matching the offer.
  16. Habs sign Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

    All I'm seeing from the Waddell and Dundon quotes about the offer sheet is, "I'm not owned! I'm not owned!" They're pissed while trying to play it off as a win. But they will match it. Oh well, good try, but moving on now what are you gonna do with 12+ million in cap space, Marc?
  17. Free Agent Frenzy

    No. If Aho ends up coming here the Habs don't have the money for Gardiner. If Aho doesn't end up here and Gardiner is still available in 7 days then something is very wrong with him.
  18. Free Agent Frenzy

    I'm not much of a fan of trading away Shaw for picks if the cap space is going to be used on an unlikely offer sheet. If Carolina matches the offer in 7 days, then the Habs just got worse for no reason with all the top UFAs gone. LD is still a mess with or without Aho. The past 48 hours have been exciting, but what has actually been accomplished?
  19. Free Agent Frenzy

    Uh... confirmed?
  20. Habs sign Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

    Drouin - Aho - Gallagher Domi - Kotkaniemi - Byron Tatar - Danault - Armia Lehkonen - Thompson - Weal Poehling, Evans, Suzuki as potential future C's... Habs would rival the rest of the Atlantic division for centre depth with that move.
  21. Habs sign Sebastian Aho to offer sheet

    Low revenue teams/cheap owners hate big signing bonuses because it's a lump sum payment all at once. Some teams don't have that kind of money all at once.
  22. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Bergevin clawing at the Offer Sheet casket yelling, "He's not dead! Let him out!" Carolina has a week to match the offer.
  23. Habs sign Riley Barber

    Great hockey name.
  24. Habs Salary Cap Info and FAQ's

    First I've seen Peca's name attached to Laval, but I don't disagree. With Lindgren also on a 1 way deal, that will be $8 425 000 on the farm team. Somebody's gotta get dealt, no way Molson wants to pay that much on the farm team all season.
  25. Habs officially sign Keith Kinkaid

    Fits the style of goaltending partner Price likes, which is to say he's a really nice guy who knows he's a backup.
