  1. 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.

    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.

    Some last minute changes to my list. 

     

    I'm done now i think.

     

    http://lastwordonhockey.com/2018-nhl-entry-draft-headquarters

    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.  

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    was too busy this year.  I missed the start of the tourney!  If the powers that be will allow me to put an entry in late.  Then please accept this as my entry with my sincere apologies.

     

    47-26-9 103 pts
    2st Atlantic
    5th East
    235 goals

     

    Best of luck to everyone!  Looking forward to another year in the hunt for 25...

     

    Go Habs Go!

     

     

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

     

    P.P.

    It's actually less when you factor in that players like Hudon and de la Rose are likely to make the roster.  I've got them at a max of $14 million to spend and that doesn't even include the $1-$1.5M wiggle room they'd probably like to keep to start the season.  They can't afford to sign all three as things currently stand.

    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?)?

     

     

  8. 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.

    The Habs record was actually 47-26-7-2 for 103 points

     

    Congrats kaos and sorry if i stir something up but I was just wondering in regards to the tiebreaks, what's the purpose of the accuracy of final record? Doesn't "thehabbit" have the most accurate record since he predicted 47 wins? And if not, shouldn't BlueKross win the second tiebreak since he predicted 1st in the Atlantic? I could see BlueKross being dqed from the first tiebreak since he only based it on 80 games but since nobody won that one, shouldn't he win the second?

     

    Just asking, I'm sure you've put more thought into it than me. 

    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.  

     

  10. 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:(.

    46-24-6-4

    1st in Atlantic

    2nd in league

    277 goals

     

     

    Both thehabbit and kaos predicted 2nd in the  Atlantic. 

     

    But thehabbit finishes second based upon their predictions of where the Habs would finish league wide: Montreal finished 7th as kaos predicted, while thehabbit predicted 6th overall. 

     

    So the winner of this year's contest is kaos.  Congratulations.

  11.   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

  12. 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 point this season,
