  1. Montoya traded to Edmonton

    This may have been the highlight of our season
  2. GDT Penguins @ Habs Thursday March 15 7:30pm

    I know the tradition is that when the Habs win, whoever did the game day thread for that game does the next game until the streak is broken. I thinknin the spirit of Team Tank, whoever does the GDT for a loss should continue to do so until the next dreaded victory. Just my 2 cents.
  3. 2018 All-Star Weekend Thread

    I have zero interest in the all star game - I haven’t for a while now. Losing Olympic hockey hurts. Imo that’s the best hockey - even better than the Stanley cup finals. NHL finals is such a marathon that teams are often beaten up and bruised - too players sometimes nursing injuries. In olympic hockey, they seem fresher and even if a top player is injured, there are still full lines of all-stars to roll out shift after shift. Now, maybe some of the weaker nations can’t say that, but by the time we are in the Olympic semi-finals, there is nothing like it. (NHL playoffs do give me the seven game series and the sudden death overtime, so it’s not that I prefer everything about the olympics)
  4. I was thinking the ‘winning’ pedigree. That said, he has always seemed intelligent to me and not given to irrational/impulsive behavior (ala Patrick Roy). He’s seen Stanley Cup teams be built from the ground up and knows what it takes to win it all. I don’t know if he has the skills to make the moves needed to build a winner, but i’d Imagine he has the resources to assemble a better leadership team than it seems Bergevin has assembled.
  5. What are the chances then of a Martin Brodeur as GM? Certainly the pedigree and the language and the class. I’ve always seen him as cerebral .... can he build a winning team? How available might he be?
  6. Merry Christmas, Habsworlders!

    I honestly LOVE this site. I’m from Montreal but have lived in Ohio since 2007. This place IS my source for Habs news. I stumbled onto this site when Kovalev was signed as a free agent and I’ve never left. I don’t post much anymore, but I’m a faithful reader. Regular posters like Cucumber, dlbalr, Commandant .... I better stop cuz I’ll end up missing others .... THANK YOU! My 2018 resolution - is to give more ❤️ to posts that I particularly enjoy.
  7. Davidson claimed by Edmonton

    So - is this overall good news for the Habs? Lost an asset, that’s bad. Maybe needed him in Laval, that’s bad. Perhaps a good callup back to the big club, also bad. But if he was never cracking the top 6 with the Habs, is it better his contract is gone?
  8. Sept. 18, Habs vs Bruins, 7 PM

    This off-season has felt like forever. Has August always been so dull? Maybe I just really missed the World Cup.
  9. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Any rumors out there on Markov?
  10. Should we care about Radulov?

    We may have lost Rad for nothing, but we also got him for nothing. At the end of the day, Rad was a carpetbagger who visited us for a year. He gained re-entry into the NHL and the contract he wanted - we got his services for a year.
  11. Dallas vs Montreal 730pm

    I agree that cups is the standard. That standard would keep the likes of Koivu and Markov out of the circle of retired numbers. BUT - if Price continues a few more years on his current trajectory (consistent Vezina contender with another win of the trophy, starter for Team Canada) then I think his number goes up Cup or no Cup.
  12. Ottawa vs Montreal 7:30pm

    My first 2 kids have adopted the Habs as they should have. It did require me to move to Ohio from Toronto to ensure this - but so worth it. My failing is my 3rd child who has become a Ducks fan. For shame. I know. I was playing for a team that wore Ducks jerseys and found one that would fit him as a 1 year old. For cryin out loud he never forgot the d*mn jersey and has had a place in his heart for them ever since. I rue the day I let my 1yr old look cute in that jersey.
  13. Ottawa vs Montreal 7:30pm

    Peter Puck or Hockey Showdown or Howie Meeker ... I enjoyed intermission as a kid.
  14. Habs acquire Dwight King

    Since he hasn't done much since arriving in Montreal (I'm being nice here), I asked one of my friends from LA about him. They said he was simply a cap casualty and were real sad to see him go. All I can hope is that they are correct and his A game is yet to come.
  15. I like Mete too - his skill is hopefully enough to compensate for his size. My point was that Bourque isn't small - he's no giant, but no smurf either.
  16. 6'1" ... that's reasonable imo. Victor Mete at 5'10" is small for an NHL dman.
  17. Habs RE-HIRE Julien FIRE MT!

    Poor poor DD ...
  18. When does Therrien get fired?

    I wonder if MB would consider doing a Gauthier and trade MT during the game ...
  19. Habs to move their AHL affiliate to Laval

    Is it a T below the 9? Laval Titan? and tho it won't ever be a favorite logo, I like it. It seems classic like our CH and away from the cartoony bulldog and the like.
  20. Can Danault possibly be the 2nd line centre going forward?

    Is Danault's play gonna mean we lose him in the expansion draft? I don't think we saw him as someone to protect at the season's start.
  21. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    Was that too many men on the ice penalty legit? looked to me like a hab went on the bench at one end and another jumped on at the other end gaining a bunch of ice as the play was moving back to the Habs end. Officials made numerous dubious calls. Numerous.
  22. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    I don't really want to watch 3 on 3 against the Pens lol
  23. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    Terrible second period. Habs were lucky to tie it up on a deflection. I've lost count on how many oddman rushes the Pens have had. The Habs cannot play this wide-open against the Pens! where is da system!
  24. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    I wrote this before the second goal was scored. He just helped prove it. Now I don't know why he was on the ice so long!!!
  25. Dec. 31, Habs vs Penguins, 7 PM

    I can see the Habs defense better this period ... OMG #89!!! Is that Johnston??? Manhandled. Man. Hand. Led.
