  1. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Highly highly doubt EDM would go anywhere near Alzner, because they’re trying to dump cap. Alzner is stupid expensive for what he brings. It would ruin the purpose of trading Klefbom for them.
  2. After weeks or months of speculation, The Habs have locked down Joel Bouchard as their new head coach in Laval. Between Ducharme and Bouchard, I think we have a real solid duo that could be leading our team in 5 years. Their was some discussion that Bouchard could be hired in a management capacity, and I still wouldn’t be surprised to see him there someday, but I think being talented enough to both coach and manage is a great asset for Bouchard to have. Five years time, would anyone be surprised to see Ducharme as head coach of the habs, and Bouchard up as well, perhaps in a management position? Good for the future

    New article on the homepage says the 10th is in play from Edmonton. What could we offer to receive both the 10th and Klefbom? What would Pacioretty and our 2nd do?
  4. Markov is a Champion. Is Subban next?

    I’m no moderator, but I couldn’t agree more. Just as a regular poster, I’d love to see people only downvote comments that cross the line in terms of vulgarity or insults, or comments that take away from the discussion. IMO downvoting a comment simply because you disagree isn’t having a discussion. That’s why we have these boards. People have differing opinions and that’s the entire point.
  5. Joel Bouchard hired as head coach of Laval

    True. But on the bright side, no matter who’s decision it was, it is a positive and should benefit the team in the long run regardless (as long as they live up to their track records). I hope they get a little help from both (Ducharme and Bouchard) for the draft. I’m sure they have a ton of intel of players in junior considering they coached against them. Good for both the short and long term.
  6. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    Have they already had an end of playoff presser or is this it? If not I wonder if Bouchard has an announcement to make?
  7. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    I figured you meant NHL level. Seems like coaches are more often groomed at the AHL level whereas management positions tend to be dealing with the entire organization in supporting roles

    For Laval or Montreal?
  9. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    That’s a great point, something worth keeps my in mind. Klefbom wouldn’t be that though!
  10. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I can easily see MB trading for both. Wouldn’t even be surprised if he kept him rather than flipping him.
  11. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    See ya Jordie 👋🏻 We we could send one of our d prospects their way as well. Benn, Fluery, our second and third for Klefbom and a classic MB 5th rounder
  12. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    To be fair, our second is a mid 30 pick. That’s a pretty valuable pick. And honestly, Chiarelli has made worse moves already, I wouldn’t put it past him. but I agree that it’s not much to pay for Kelfbom
  13. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Done. I don’t want to give up gally that’s for sure. But if they really are in it for a cap dump, we should pounce. Klefbom is a great fit, on paper at least.
  14. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I’m all aboard the klefbom train. What would Edmonton be looking for?
  15. 2018 draft thread

    If there’s already a thread for this apologies, I couldn’t find one. But as the season winds down, and we seem to be settling solidly on a bottom 10, and possibly bottom 5 finish, I can’t help but have a tickle of excitement (admitted tanknation at this point.) Now we’ve all had our daydreams about drafting Dahlin, and while there’s a small chance that could happen, what I’m interested to hear about are who we could take with the likely 4-7 slot we’re currently hovering around. At this point, Dahlin, Svechnikov and Zadina are almost certainly to have gone in the top 3. So it’s the next wave I’m thinking about. I think it most like that next, Tkachuk, Boqvist, and Bouchard will be drafted, with other names like Hughes and Wahlstrom. In the event we can pick between any one these guys, who do you go for and why? Most sources have Tkachuk and Boqvist before Bouchard, but he seems like a hell of a player too. Personally I think Bouchard could go at 6-7, and I’d be estatic to nab him there. In Bouchard, you have a 6’2, 190 lbs d man. NHL size if I ever saw it. With 25 goals and 87 points in 67 games, I believe he leads all OHL d-men. This guy actually tied Mete and beat Juolevi LAST year for team lead in point by a dman (albeit in more games). By all accounts he’s also a very solid two-way player under the tutelage of Dale Hunter, who has produced a couple half decent NHLers like Nash, Perry, Kane, Tavares, Gagner, Carlson, Domi, Namestinekov, Kadri, Marner, Horvat, Maata, Mete, Tkachuk... (decent track record). Hunter actually compares this guy directly to John Carlson, who he coached - says he’s right there with him. I’d be happy to draft a John Carlson. He’s also the captain (so CHaracter duh), AND he has a French sounding last name - what more could Bergevin ask for?!? With the front end talent in this draft, I think Bouchard is actually flying under the radar. Could be a great selection to help out our terrible back end.
  16. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Sure, that would be great. Is our current pro scouting good enough for that?
  17. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Like I said though, I would trade him. I just think signing a centre is the better option because we don’t lose a huge asset like Pacioretty. We could sign a Centre, then if trading him is necessary we could fill in another weakness like LD
  18. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Well personally I’d have Galchenyuk in the middle and Byron top 9 as well. Don’t see Galchenyuk being there. I guess I can see a logjam because I wasn’t thinking about Scherbak. Still, depth is always great when injuries arise. And like I said, I would trade Pacioretty if the deal was right, but I just don’t think he’s the problem, it’s the lack of centres.
  19. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I think Bjugstad works better as a winger as well, one who’s not as good a pacioretty at that. Either Tavares (obviously) or Stastny being signed is the best in my opinion because we have plenty of cap space, and won’t lose any assets. Although I would trade Pacioretty in the right deal, I actually don’t agree that we have too many top 6 wingers. Having guys like Lehkonen and Hudon playing 3rd line is ideal for depth scoring. We don’t need to subtract wingers, we need to add Centers. id prefer to see Galchenyuk, Pacioretty, Lehkonen top 3 LW, And Drouin, Gallagher, a hudon top 3 RW. With Stastny - Danault the top 6 C, or unlikely but ideally Tavares.
  20. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    And somehow Nashville makes out with Subban from it, never seeing the rough last 3-4 years of the contract
  21. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    I believe the contract Weber is currently on could have been an offer sheet too? Memory might not be serving me right
  22. Lukas Vejdemo signs

    Unfortunately McCarron is already expendable
  23. Lukas Vejdemo signs

    He could make it as a bottom 6er at some point. That’s about the cap, but it’s still a good signing to help out the center depth
  24. 2018 NHL Draft Lottery

    Yes, and Nashville being a playoff bound team looking for immediate help and willing to give up picks. Not it so much the case with a team like Arizona, who despite having some great young players will likely want to nab one of the talented defencemen if possible. It would take a lot.
  25. 2018 NHL Draft Lottery

    It you’re proposing a 1 for 1, neither of those players would be even close to Arizona’s pick.
