  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I don’t think we should be moving Domi ... but I bet the Leafs are the team that would overpay for him.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Laurent Dauphin to Montreal Mike McCarron to Nashville Dauphin is a forward. Headed to the Rocket.
  7. 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!!
  8. 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!
  9. 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??
  10. 47-25-6-4 104 points 3rd in Atlantic 6th in East 280 goals
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Has the offer sheet been matched yet or is it still going to be matched?
  15. Maybe I’m crazy or just haven’t given up on the dream - but HAVE they matched the offer or just said they WOULD match the offer. I mean, if I’m Carolina and want revenge - no matter how petty - maybe I say I am matching, hoping the Habs screw themselves with the cap only to never match.
  16. Carey to MB: who cares about Duchene or Lee or the old boys club ... go get that Aho!!!
  17. Hate to lose Shaw. That said - definitely good asset management - selling when he was at top value.
  18. I say my vote is Chara too. If Marchand was on our team, I wonder if we would love him. Pests are always loved by their home town fans, loathed everywhere else. But with Chara, I’d forever be embarrassed that he was on my team after what he did to MaxPac or any other human being. That wasn’t him just being competitive, that was disrespectful on a human level.
  19. Me and my boys just started playing poker together - but I’m not in a spot to buy that at this time - but wow I wish I were!!
  20. I also think the second Vegas goal was a high stick. I was shocked when that was allowed. Luck goes both ways. In the end, they collectively control emotionally during that 5 min PK. Can’t fall apart THAT badly and then blame the refs.
  21. I’m at a USHL game, sitting beside a St Cloud St scout. He is so happy for Poehling - following his NHL debut tonight. Needless to say and perhaps obvious to us - but he loves Poehling and thinks he’ll be a really good player for us!
  22. 0-0 after 1 between the Rags and the Jackets. We arent dead yet!
  23. I know we’d need a Jackets loss to get in - but what about a Canes tie? I was thinking if we win our 2 in regulation, and the Canes get 3 of 4 points, that we get in. Am I correct?
