    Habs Bio: I was a Leafs fan and a Habs fan until I turned 6 in 1967 and they met in the cup final. After agonizing over the decision I decided to follow the Habs and drop the Leafs. A decision I regretted 6 games later but which seems to have turned out okay in the long run. :)

  1. First Goal for Mete

    I'm going to predict he scores tonight in Florida as the Habs break their losng streak.
  2. First Goal for Mete

    I've got a good feeling. I predict he scores his first against TB on Saturday.
  3. First Goal for Mete

    OK, I think Mete will score tonight in Nashville.
  4. First Goal for Mete

    I agree with Commandant, I'm confident he will get his first Saturday against Toronto.
  5. First Goal for Mete

    I'm going to predict Mete scores Sunday against the Oilers.
  6. Losing DLR isn't great but it is great to realize that we have enough depth now that there are teams looking to see who we will put on waivers.
  7. 13th Annual Regular season Prediction Contest

    I'll say 38-30-5-9= 90 pts 5th in the Division 19 overall 216 goals
  8. Okay looks like the team is having a reset. I'm encouraged by some of the players in the farm system. So I'm ready for a new season and that means... The 13th Annual HabsWorld regular season prediction contest. Hall of Fame: 2006-2007 Jean won with a prediction of 92 points when the Habs finished the year with 90 pts. If only we could have won that last game. 2007-2008 Adirondack Bud exactly predicted our final total of 104 pts. 2008-2009 Zowpeb won by predicting a strong start followed by a slower 2nd half ending with 99 points. The Habs finished the season in 8th place with 93 points. On September 22, 2008 Zowpeb predicted "I think we'll see a rough patch just past the mid-year point..." Wow! 2009-2010 Joelassister correctly predicted the Habs would finish with 88 points. Honourable mention to kaos who predicted a season record of 39-34-9 (87 pts) while the Habs finished 39-33-10. 2010-2011 Chips produced the all time best prediction. His preseason prediction of 44-30-8 for 96 pts 6th in the East, 14th in the NHL was exactly correct in every aspect. That amazing feat will be hard to duplicate. Honourable mentions went to Seb whose excellent prediction of 44-30-8 for 96 pts. 5th in east, 13th in NHL came up just short; and to Peter Puck who also correctly predicted the Habs would finish with 96 points. 2011-2012 sakiqc Our fearless leader won with his prediction of 37-34-11 for 85 points. The Habs record was 31-35-16 for 78 points. Honourable mention went to Habsfan who correctly predicted that the Habs would score 212 goals. 2012-2013 illWill won by predicting the Habs would finish with a record of 27-16-5 for 59 points. The Habs finished 29-14-5 for 63 points. Honourable mention to PMAC and to former champion Chips who both predicted the Habs to finish with 58 points. 2013-2014 Meller93 exactly predicted the Habs final record 46-28-5-3. Honourable mention to thehabbit who correctly predicted the Habs final point total and just missed getting their record exactly right. 2013-2014 nihliz predicted 50-23-5-4 for 109 points. In fact the Habs finished the season 50-22-5-5 for 110 points. Honourable mentions went to nhfarber who predicted 49-23-4-6 for 108 points and to sakiqc who predicted 51-26-1-4 for 107 points 2015-2016 Chris predicted 40-30-8-4 for 92 points. The injury ridden Habs finished the season 38-38-3-3 for 82 points. 2016-2017 The Habs finished the regular season 47-26-7-2 for 103 points. Using tie breakers: thehabbit had the winning prediction when he predicted 47-25-5-5 = 104 pts and Honourable mentions to kaos and Bluecross. kaos predicted 46-26-6-4 = 102 pts BlueKross predicted 46-24-6-4 =102 pts. 2017-2018 The Habs finished the regular season 29-40-7-6 for 71 points. All the predictions were bad but the least bad was by Dalhabs who won by predicting 42-30-6-4 = 94 pts. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 2018-2019 edition Same rules as last season. Predict a) what the Habs regular season record will be: wins-losses-OTL-SOL b) in what place in the Atlantic Division the Habs will finish c) in what place in the East the Habs will finish d) the total number of goals the Habs will score this season (including 1 goal per shootout win). The winner will be based upon the most accurate prediction of the Habs final points. In the event of a tie bonus points will be awarded for getting the number of wins, number of losses, number of OTL's or number of SOL's correct. The latter three predictions will be used successively to break ties. The decision of Peter Puck is final. Don't forget to separate overtime losses and shootout losses. Entries due before puck drop on Wednesday Oct 3 at 7:00pm. Good luck and may the Hockey Gods have mercy on your soul.
  9. 2018 draft thread

    Well that explains why they didn't trade down with Arizona. Either Arizona wanted Kotkaniemi and so we couldn't swap or they wanted Hayton and so had no interest in moving up.
  10. 2018 draft thread

    I have reached my conclusions and was about to go on the record but I see I am in almost complete agreement with Commandant's final list. I will be happy with any one of Hughes, Kotkaniemi or Zadina. If we pick a winger it had better be Zadina. I suspect we will trade down. swapping 3 for 5 with Arizona for their 2019 2nd rounder. I don't want Tkachuk. I'm higher on Bouchard than Commandant though.
  11. I really like this article. Saying sell, sell, sell, ... is just silly and requires no thought. We need to identify the players who we can bring back real value to the team. Piling up a bunch of low round draft picks might be selling but I don't see it as helping the team significantly. Great article with some well thought out arguments.
  12. Nov. 24/25, Utica vs Laval

    Taped this game and just got around to watching it. My French is pretty rudimentary so I got confused with what happened in the OT with 2 and a half minutes left Laval had 2 extra players come off their bench reulting in playing with 5 guys on the ice for a few seconds. Probably played 7 seconds with 4 skaters and 3 seconds with 5. Maybe Utica also had an extra player? When play stopped the refs held a huddle and then just started up 3 on 3 again.
  13. Davidson claimed by Edmonton

    So hypothetically Vrbata could have been had for a second round pick. Very possibly some good play by him could have got us into the 2nd round. Even if we resign him, would we better off going forward with Vrbata instead of Josh Brook or instead of Joni Ikonen? Vrbata is an okay player but he is 36 and on pace for a 12 goal 40 point season.
  14. Oct. 13/14, Binghamton vs Laval

    and Carr wins it in OT!!!
  15. Annual HabsWorld Regular Season Prediction Contest

    No problem. Slightly late entries only suffer the penalty of losing tie breakers should you tie with someone else for first. P.P.
