  1. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Yes, I would trade backstrom for pacioretty in a heartbeat. but is he 2 firsts, or 3 firsts better? Not for me.
  2. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Sure, it sounds a little EA sports, but I think more importantly you're forgetting about the Juulsen, Sergachev and Poehling you just traded away. Trading all your firsts in the next three years is basically a recipe for the worst prospect pool in hockey 3-4 years down the road
  3. Andrei Markov tribute thread - officially not back

    If I didn't care what you guys think I wouldn't be posting on this board; hearing your thoughts are what makes this forum fun I'm all for you supporting MB, I'm just also interested in hearing why. It's not a worth while discussion if you blindly assert "good move" each and every time with no reason. Who knows, you might actually change my mind if you have a good point!
  4. Andrei Markov tribute thread - officially not back

    Nobody said the sky is falling, there's no need to be passive aggressive when losing Markov is a clear loss to our blue line. Especially in terms of offense This is a serious question and not meant to be snarky; are there any moves or non-moves of MB's that you haven't been happy with? Blind faith and blind hate are equally dumb. It's objective assessment that makes sense. A one year (which Markov might have done apparently) just makes sense.
  5. Andrei Markov tribute thread - officially not back

    Pretty sad he isn't retiring a Hab. We'll miss his offence from the blue line hugely this year. I wonder what made the definitive decision for him not to resign? Seem a little early yet considering it not even August.
  6. Habs sign Mark Streit, 1 year, $700,000

    Of course this move does not prevent MB from making another move, however it absolutely makes a Markov signing at least a little less likely. I'm not mad about the signing, but I'll be upset if I don't see one more year of Marky
  7. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Agreed, the asking price is insane. I don't want to go anywhere near him where it is now. I agree he can return to 60+ though.
  8. A slightly hard concept to wrap my mind around, but most player take long deals for the security. Think about how many career ending injuries happen. Pronger made BANK while shelved for years. I absolutely would sign an 8 year for that reason. I get concussed, I still make cash on LTIR.
  9. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Wow, that almost seems like satire it's so over the top habs hahah. Really hope to see him back for a year, or two at a little cheaper. I know his agent is obviously going to pump his tires, but he said Markov is a workhorse who wants to play for 3-5 more years. Ans honestly, it's the cerebral side of Markov's game that's keeping him going. Like a Nik Lidstrom lite, I could see it happening.

    Hahahah agreed, it was a good post. Rational posts are always hold the most weight, and we need some like that to get everyone back down to earth. But the hot-headed ones are sometimes the most entertaining hahahah
  11. Yahoo fantasy draft????

    Yea I have the same thought. Teams of 20x20 will be far from stacked, we're talking 400 players. thats why I think a keepers league is a better choice for such a large format; it allows you to pick up a couple prospects in a N/A slot. Building for the future and what not. It rewards an eye for future talent too.
  12. Yahoo fantasy draft????

    I'd do a keepers league if you wanted a new option?
  13. Maybe things aren't as bad as.....

    Nice plug there guy
  14. Maybe things aren't as bad as.....

    Price also got injured for most of that year. I won't stick on this topic after this post but I need to say one thing about it. Saying Subban or Weber is the sole reason for either team's successes or failures is a silly argument. However it's also silly to deny what they objectively bring to the table. Both are great defensivemen. But in my opinion Weber is a "good ol canadian boy", and always get the benefit of the doubt where Subban doesn't. People on the other side of the argument always say we're just whining. To me it just seems like others are denying some uncomfortable truths and biases about how the players are perceived. Put Subbans play in Webers personality/body and he doesn't receive 1/10th the flak.
  15. Galchenyuk signed

    Although I like Chucky on the right, we haven't seen a coach slot him there yet. Not sure we'll start seeing it now, even if it would be best.
