  2. He was the first Hab I remember liking. One of my earliest memories is watching Habs games on black and white tv and loving to see #16 skate. btw - he only celebrated his 21st birthday last week on Feb 29th.
  3. I never understand why we should move petry or Tatar for a pick that we HOPE in 3-4 years becomes at least as good as the petry or Tatar we now have. Those are exactly the types of players we’d need to overpay to acquire next year if we didn’t have them. Losing them creates holes. Losing them guarantees we’ve thrown in the towel on next year already. Keeping them means we can go for it next year and still move them should we eventually throw in the towel next year. this was not poor asset management. What it was was not giving up on next season before it even started.
  4. I have felt that for a very long time, Timmons has made the later round draft selections but the GM has made the first round selection. this, to me, is why Timmons seems bulletproof - internally, they know the misses weren’t his fault.
  5. I don’t think we should be moving Domi ... but I bet the Leafs are the team that would overpay for him.
  6. I keep hoping to come to this thread and see Habs RE-sign Ilya Kovalchuk Seems like he fits. Good asset management or not - I like him in a Habs uniform.
  7. I hate to say this, but i just joined team tank - not to trade core pieces (Price, Weber) but simply to lose as many games as possible and trading off potential UFAs and players who have value but won’t be on the club in 2 years anyways (Kovalchuk, Tatar UNLESS we lock him up) I love the direction the team is headed in the last 2 years. Building through the draft and trades to tweak or move strength to fill weakness. it’s a slow plan - but it’s the right one. This isn’t a plan to be forever mediocre ... it’s a plan that makes us a top tier contender for years in a row. we don’t need a top 5 pick. We don’t need to ice an AHL squad. Just draft wisely, manage the assets, scout waivers well - and wait. I really believe the KK, Suzuki, Brook, Caufield, Romanov wave will bring us Stanley Cups.
  8. Laurent Dauphin to Montreal Mike McCarron to Nashville Dauphin is a forward. Headed to the Rocket.
  9. Lots of fog this Christmas - we needed Rudolph on the top of his game. He came through for us last night. it’s Prancer I think that’s got to go! Replace him with Boxer or someone else with more toughness. Merry Christmas habsworld fam!!
  10. I’ve been here since we signed Kovalev. I was searching for news on it and stumbled on this site. A week has never gone by that I haven’t read everything i can here!
  11. I DO NOT want the Maples anywhere near Lord Stanley’s Cup ... but I can’t help but wonder if the fastest track for the Habs to hoist it again might be if the Maples did happen to win it all this year. Would any remaining sense of complacency be eradicated at the ownership level by a Maples championship??
  12. 47-25-6-4 104 points 3rd in Atlantic 6th in East 280 goals
  13. I do want Markov for the season - maybe ala Plekanec deal last year, where he gets his 1000th game, plays only if he earns a spot in the lineup, and retires a Hab
  14. I have always felt that Timmons was excellent in his ranking players for the draft, but the GMs and their egos always overruled him in the first rounds. I’d love it if Timmons could write a book when he retires and showing his personal BPA lists for each draft class.
  15. Taking the chance cost us NOTHING. I don’t believe there will be vengeance - given that in the past when offer sheets have been tendered, GMs seemed to see it as business and not take it personal. If Domi or whoever get tendered an offer sheet, so be it - match or take the picks. I feel MB looks better today than before - because he took a swing. So what if he missed. For years we wished GMs would go for those RFAs. We have a GM that tried. That said - if he is done and this is our opening day team, then he failed. But it’s July 9. I’m ok with the Aho try. He hasn’t failed yet. Those thinking MB is terrible can continue to lay in excited anticipation of his looming evidence of ineptitude - but it’s too soon to pounce. Im encouraged by last summer and continue to be in excited anticipation of some move that justifies his clearing of salary. I hoped it was a UFA signing. It wasn’t. I hoped it was an RFA signing. It wasn’t. But there are still trades that can be made. I still have hope.
