    I celebrate the fact that he made a bold, outside the box play.


    But if, when all is said and done and summer is over and the team no better than last year’s, then he still blew it in my books. After eight years of MB futility and 25 years of non-contention, I am more than a little ‘results oriented.’ I’ve been playing the ‘just wait 2-3 years’ game for a quarter century; and I’m not buying it any more.

    My expectations were so low for this offseason that the offer sheet has thrown me out of wack.

    Yeah,  the Habs have basically thrown the cat among the pigeons when it comes to Canes ownership: are you serious or aren’t you? Seven days to tell the tale.

    I think they will match, but even then i'm not upset, I care more about MB making an effort than the result.

    Montreal now has cap tied up on a player that isnt even on their roster. Way too low of an offer too. They could have added an extra 2 million in bonuses...Pointless offer

    Think about why they chose this number, they gave up one less 1st round draft pick is what I'm hearing. 

  4. I ended up not getting centre ice because I live in NS the 'habs region' I have so many games blacked out,  it's horse shit. I guess I'm going the illegal route, even though I tried to pay for it.

  5. I'm bias as hell, but it didn't seem like that big of a deal. I suspect he'll get the rest of pre-season and like 2-3 regular season games to 'send a message'. Like someone said above, if Ek was running around slashing, bumping the goalie, then the whole "but its preseason" argument, doesn't hold water as to why Domi wanted to fight.

    Great question. My honest thought is no, if Suzuki were already in the fold, Tkachuk or Zadina would be a Hab.

    The way that the habs biggest concerns for the last 5-7 years was lack of centres, I wouldn't be surprised if we did the same move to just further increase the chances of one of the prospects turning out not to be a bust.

    I wonder if he believes the words that come out of his mouth. Or after these news conference he goes to the back room and laughs and asks people if they think the media bought what he was saying?

    I feel like you could never be 100% honest with the media, so for that part I think all coaches lie or bend the truth.

    Pacioretty - Drouin - Gallagher

    Domi - Danault - Scherbak

    Lehkonen - De La Rose - Hudon

    Byron - Plekanec - Shaw


    Mete - Weber

    Alzner - Petry

    Benn - Juulsen






    Nothing about that lineup screams exciting team to watch. I could handle not-exciting when the team was winning, but when you combine not winning and not exciting, count me out.

  9. You know what gives people good attitudes for the most part? Winning. If you're losing it's hard to have a good attitude. I just in good conscience can't understand how MB is allowed to touch the CH roster. 


    I attitude change that's needed that wont come was already mentioned above, there is a great coach available right now, that could never be hired by Montreal because he doesn't speak  french, the media and fans are hamstringing this organization.

    I don't think don or illWill are blindly waving the habs flag. If anything I would say some people are over valuing kotsitsyn 2.0 erm... Galchenyuk.  He's had tonnes of time to develop.  100% therrien gallant Julien muller fault that he did not. I would have liked to get more for him,  but this isn't pavel datsyuk. Plain and simple. I think montreal lost the trade.  But not by much. Galchenyuk isn't that good. I'm certainly not going to cheer for arizona and hope domi sucks and Chucky scores 50 so I can be right. 

    I agree with illWill on the  confusion of using goals vs playmaking to argue about one trade, and then reversing it two years later to argue another. You never know, team balance may be better having someone who can pass the puck. Go 13 Go. 

    This is the kind of thinking that keeps letting the Montreal management off the hook for their terrible trades, this isn't the worst move they've made, but this is the straw that broke the camels back.

    So you think he may put up only 5g next year...or just keep saying 5g as cheap way to try and make a weak point.

    Galchenyuk averages 50pts/yr, all of 5 more points last year than a guy who only had 5g on one of worst teams in NHL.



    Montreal was one of the worst teams in the NHL last yeah too, eh?

    I dislike the move but I do believe that Domi will do better with us than he did in Arizona. 



    I have to ask why you think that? The current coaches have proven they cannot work well with youth players, this move is like treating the symptoms not the cause, and the cause is the coaches. Changing to Julien from Therien didn't seem to do anything.

    Montreal scored 209 goals last year.  Arizona scored 208.  Dont tell me that Domis lower goal production is because he played in arizona.


    Domi also benefits from empty netters which chucky didnt get.  He scored all of 5 goals against real goalies.


    Nicolas deslauriers was a better goal scorer.

    Both players .6 ppg. Chucky unable to secure a roster spot with multiple coaches.


    I mean Julien, Therien,  was there really much difference between the two? Also, I didn't downvote  you, I welcome different opinions even if I think they are full of crazy. As with all habs players that have been moved because they weren't the 'right fit', I hope he does very well in Arizona, and I wont boohoo Domi, that doesn't mean I will be happy with this trade. The whole 'trust the management' line has been so overplayed at this point, any trust that may have been there is gone, way gone.
