  1. I guess it was Jack Johnson or nothing.
  2. Must have thought highly of him. I see Dan Ryder was selected by Calgary. Oh well Isn't another brother of a Habs player in the draft? Kostitsyn perhaps?
  3. Seems like a good pick. But I'm still wondering what happened with Latendresse. What did the Habs give up?
  4. I'm trying to follow the draft on Sportsnet, but they only have the 1st round available. What happened with Latendresse? I thought we didn't have a 2nd round pick (Kovalev trade)
  5. Carey Price? I did not see that coming...Brule still on the board...Skille still on the board...Kopitar still on the board... wow
  6. I don't know why, but for some reason I'm really excited about the third line. No longer will Bulis need to play on the top two lines with the graduating young talent and imminent UFA signing of someone with great offensive skill (if not Kovalev then someone else.) So put anyone beside Bulis on that third line and you've got a great one. Bonk would be wonderful. Sundstrom will be solid. Dags would be an offensive threat on an otherwise defensively sound line. Higgins, Plekanec, Hossa, and any other youngster will be better with Bulis on the ice with them. Last season's playoffs proved it to me. Bulis is the real deal. He's great for the Habs. I'm a Bulis fan. If my judgement is cloudy, someone tell me.
  7. Like you said, he hasn't played a game for the Habs. Let's see how he does this season before calling his signing "unwise." I look forward to seeing him play, cause I think he will bolster our third line. Plus, if Ribs or Koivu get injured, he has the offensive capability to jump to 2nd or 1st line duties. That being said, he will have to work hard to fullfill the money being sent his way.
  8. Can I ask you to go a step further and give a suggestion for a D man that could be brought in with the Ribiero exchange?
  9. I actually wasn't sure, but decided against responding with "r u a ######in idot???!!!111one!" Thank you for clarifying. I'll know from now on you aren't stupid
  10. A lot of guys just look at the numbers he put up in the AHL last year and call him a bust. Rarely do those same people know that Kostitsyn was playing 3rd and 4th line time working on his defensive game. Nor do they care that it was his first year in Canada, with a new style of hockey, and being required to learn English. I'll label him a bust if he fails to put up incredible numbers with 1st line ice time, flanking other talented 1st liners, playing a style he'll be much more familiar with in his second year. Till then, I agree with you, he's a solid pick.
  11. Dags had 17 goals in 50 games. And even if he figures out how to shoot the puck out of his ass and score every time, he still won't be paid the league maximum. No Yashin in a Habs uniform.
  12. So if I understand Gainey's comments in the TSN article, we can deduce that Hainsey will be the 6th D man since Gainey is only looking for one D. Well, he's been given an opportunity there. Hopefully, he doesn't ###### it up.
  13. Does Crosby being drafted by Pittsburgh affect the Kovalev situation?
  14. as long as it gets us D help I'm happy.
  15. I like the quote "All things considered, the Habs might be poised to make a dramatic jump in the Eastern Conference standings even without flashy free-agent signings." I've been seeing a lot of "We'll sign this UFA and this UFA, buyout these two guys and I think we'll have the cap space to sign 3 more UFAs at a reduced price!!!" I hate new bodies with unknown chemistry. Yes, sign a top winger for Koivu to play alongside - the bar has been set high. Yes, sign some D help - the Habs need it. But I'd hate it if half the team were new players that didn't leave room for our great prospects to jump to. What will the Habs look like this season? Hopefully not a whole lot different from last year.
  16. That would be excellent. When I was talking about free agents with my friend (alas, a Leafs fan) I brought up that article as a reference. He looked at the list and said "Apparently Montreal fans don't just focus on Montreal" I liked that. He cares about who's coming to Toronto to help them win. I care about who goes to Montreal, and who goes to LA with an overpayed deal (Conroy :nono:), or how many underachievers currently are going through the motions in the Rangers roster. It's nice that this site caters not just to Habs fans, but hockey fans as well.
  17. Turn it into a competition. There will be 8 games between them this year. Just strike a deal that if the Habs win, she becomes your sex slave for the night. If the Leafs win, you become her sex slave for the night. It's called a win/win situation
  18. The Habs defence is weak. This is no secret. Buying out Brisebois and Rivet essentially requires Gainey to sign two free agent d men, and still have Hainsey as our 6th man. That's awfully shoddy. Sign a free agent D man, resign Brisebois to a lesser contract, and make sure he doesn't play over his abilities. That would make me happy. In order of importance; Souray, Markov, UFA, Komisarek, Brisebois, Rivet, Hainsey, Boullion. I'm okay with that.
  19. Hahahahahaha niiiiiice. Might as well find a good goalie named Young to complete it.
  20. I never said small talented players won't make it. I even said Balej could become a great player. But I think small guys flourish better with big guys around them (wearing the same jersey of course.) So to reiterate more clearly, I think Balej and Crosby would be better players with a team with bigger players. When you think of the Habs, "BIG" never comes up. Put Crosby beside Bertuzzi. ###### me that's unstoppable. In fact, if the Habs draft Crosby they better trade for a talented power forward.
  21. My changes: Sign Kovalev or a Kovalev equivalent. - :contract: Gainey set the bar high with that trade. I, as well as most fans, now require an Elite winger beside Koivu for this, and hopefully many more, seasons to come. Anything less will be deemed a failure. Sign D help - Anyone that can contribute. Yes, Foote would contribute more than most, but even if we can't sign a top D man, I would take anyone. Hainsey or Boullion as the 6th D is murder. I'd rather Hainsey prove what it is that he's got with limited ice time to start. If he turns out to be what he was supposed to be, then he gets more. If he busts, then he can be used as Souray's slapshot target for practices. But that's it. I have faith in the graduating forward prospects this year, and would rather they play than sign more help. If the kids suck, c'est la vie. If they flourish, I'll see you on St Catherine for the parade. :/)
