  1. I'll say 38-30-5-9= 90 pts 5th in the Division 19 overall 216 goals
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. No problem. Slightly late entries only suffer the penalty of losing tie breakers should you tie with someone else for first. P.P.
  9. Its time for the 12th 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 Joel
  10. There could be a lot more power plays this season. If the refs keep up the crackdown on slashing there will be more PPs than last year.
  11. Supposedly they made final offers to both Markov and Radulov. Does this mean whichever one agrees they just drop the other? Or did the low ball one of them (Markov?)?
  12. I'm not seeing how we afford all 3 of Markov, Radulov and Galchenyuk now. We have 15 million cap space. The best I can see is 4 million for Glachenyuk, 6 million for Radulov and 5 million for Markov. I don't think any of the 3 will sign for that number.
  13. Yes I admit the first tie break is hard to explain. Basically it is intended to reward someone who comes very close to the final record over some one who is far off. For example someone who had predicted 36-6-10-20 = 102 pts would lose the first tie breaker to any of the 3 finalist this year. Normally I would not have used the first tie breaker this year, but someone predicting an 80 game season , come on.
  14. Whoops. Apparently I thought the season is 92 games.
  15. Okay we have our winner(s). The Habs finished the season 57-26-7-2 for 103 points. 47-26-7-2 for 103 points. Three posters came within 1 point of the correct total. thehabbit predicted 47-25-5-5 = 104 pts and kaos predicted 46-26-6-4 = 102 pts BlueKross predicted 46-24-6-4 =102 pts. The first tie breaker (accuracy of final record) forces me to put BlueKross in third place since his prediction is predicated on an 80 game season. Both thehabbit and kaos predicted 2nd in the Atlantic. But thehabbit finishes second based upon
  16. We won't disqualify you but you will lose all tie-breakers.
  17. I'm sticking with my prediction for last year. I hope I'm not off by 29 points again. 50-21-8-3 for 111 points 1st in the Atlantic 1st in the East 2nd in the league 248 GF.
  18. I've been procrastinating since the Subban/Weber trade sapped my enthusiasm. But I do like the lines and the willingness to play some rookies. So its time for the 11th Annual HabsWorld 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 w
  19. To me, I never saw the time this season when it made sense to trade for a goalie. At first it looked like Condon would be adequate. Then when it became clear he wouldn't, it seemed like only a few more weeks and we'll get Price back. That continued for a long while. After that it was clear that no average goalie was going to be enough to get us into the playoffs and hoping Carey would return was our only hope. In retrospect, it seems like maybe we should have traded a 2nd rounder for a goalie but its a lot easier to see that now. I would have been mad if MB had made such a trade at any
  20. You beat me to it Commandant. I'll just add that we got Kassian and a 5th for Prust (who is in the AHL). So I think criticizing MB for Kassian dosn't make much sense.
  21. Wow, that is the definition of an easy win. Just need 0.33 goaltending to secure a win.
  22. I'm not convinced that there is such a thing as clutch players but if you do believe in it then Price has to be one of the best clutch players around. His performance in elimination games in the playoffs and olympics recently is unparalleled. I definitely think he is worth 10 million a year. Plus I don't know how we are supposed to acquire this mythical 8 million dollar forward except by trading Price.
