    Its total garbage from the bully pulpit. If they were truly wanting to ask tough questions, it would be along the lines of: 1. Why is the Q consistently lower in quality than the O and W? 2. Why isn't the Q producing good NHL coaches comparable to other development leagues. ( I don't have stats to prove this but I can only assumes it's true as our talent pool for hiring coaches has been no greater than about 5 in recent memory)

    Anyone else got that "hammer's 'bout to drop" feeling? It's been quiet for MB. Too quiet.
  3. If you read the reviews on Yelp, all the reviews from the Americanos are usually gushing. They do things differently in La Belle Province
  4. 27 strikes me as a little immature. The work ethic isn't quite there. Dates strippers.... Those things will disappear with time. Let the boy grow up and give us a Cup.
  5. How are we going to trade for anything? The cupboard is bare. There's a few 2nd rounders to dangle but beyond that? Please someone tell me I'm wrong.
  6. Who wants to play left D?
  7. Late to the thread. Has anyone posited that MB was told by VGK that they were gunning for Nate but MB couldn't swing a good deal? Hence, Nate gone for a nickel?
  8. Holy thread revival batman.... Pacioretty-Tavares-Radulov Lehkonen-Galchenyuk-Gallagher Hudon-Shaw-Byron Martinsen-Danault-De La Rose Markov-Weber Jerabek-Petry Sergachev-Benn I've had too much champagne this Mother's Day however if this new roster does not feature Tavares and Radulov less Emelin and Plex then consider me downright pissed.
  9. I think a lot of blame unjustly is headed towards MB when he's the centrepiece of a multi-headed monster. I never see the names of Dudley, Mellanby, Carriere, Lapointe getting lambasted routinely. This is partly understandable as they work behind the scenes but Dudley surely deserves a lot of criticism for recent outcomes. Unless we can get Tavares and Radulov for next season (and do the regular shuffling of our b-type players which MB is so fond of) then we should burn it down and start fresh.
  10. Or we could adopt a drug seeking mentality. Always pushing the same thing. Looking for that elusive high we had back in 2010 and 2014 just knowing that if we get one more hit, everything will feel better and we can all sleep at night. Or we could get ourselves back to rehab and in shape within 2-3 years.
  11. Yes. If he can get the buyer to overpay. I'm looking at you Calgary. We already have 7 total picks between rounds 1 and 2 in 2017 and 2018. Think of the immediate rebuild that could be had if we went nuclear. Pacioretty, Price, Weber all gone for 1st round picks and more. Segachev, Gallagher, Lehkonen would stay. Question marks for Shaw and Galchenyuk. We'd have a brand new team that was young, competitive by 2018-19 and giving us a very good chance for at least 5-7 years.
  12. That's a good asset for sure. But who plays #1 C? This is a sore point for all of us but most importantly will be critical to a successful Cup run. If played correctly, we can trade 27 or 67 or whoever for a chance at a real centre. PITT, CHI, LA, BOS. They all had franchise centres.
  13. A team that finished 8th but has reached the upper limit on age for its core. That means we're likely trending down. And I disagree about the riots. If we're to trade in for a group of dynamic young players with the right pedigree - the place would be packed every night with hope for the future. The fan base is more intelligent and less angry than people readily admit.
  14. Thats fair game on Eaves and Stafford. Good additions. Still, he didn't give up anything valuable and we did get value out of Benn and Ott. Just less than what we were hoping for.
  15. Good point. Kadri is a great example of a successful reclamation. Expectations are not the same for the two players however. 27 was drafted third overall to become the next Damphousse or Muller, not to become a "defensive" centre. Expecations are way higher for Chuck. It's way harder to become a No 1 centre. I don't think he can do it. He'd at least shown more promise by now.
