  1. It turns out the roster casualty to bring Jacob de la Rose off IR is de la Rose himself as the Habs have officially placed him on waivers. http://www.habsworld.net/2018/10/habs-place-jacob-de-la-rose-on-waivers/

  3. Remember, they don't have to keep him up for nine games before making a decision. They could make it now and have him play a few games at the end of the year once his season in Finland is done if they want to get him to nine. To be honest, that would be my preferred route.

  5. Habs Salary Cap Info and FAQ's

    A little something to note from the Lindgren emergency recall from Saturday. They were able to bring him up under this provision: This can only be used twice during the season and for no more than 48 hours on each occasion.
  6. Montreal's 2018-19 Free Agents: Restricted (Class II): Daniel Audette, Joel Armia, Charles Hudon, Brett Kulak, Artturi Lehkonen, Brett Lernout, Michael McCarron, Gustav Olofsson, Xavier Ouellet, Mike Reilly, Nikita Scherbak, Hunter Shinkaruk Unrestricted (Class III): Kenny Agostino, Jordie Benn, Byron Froese, Antti Niemi, Tomas Plekanec Unrestricted (Class VI): None yet Unrestricted (Class UFA): TBD at the end of the season Players will be removed from the list as they sign. Relevant Links: HW Contract Page Waiver Situation - Anyone making $375,000 + the minimum salary ($650,000 for 2017-18) will count in part against the cap upon a reduction to the minors. For example, a player making $1.2 million would count as $175,000 on the cap (1.2 M - [375k + 650k]). Known no-trade clauses: - Karl Alzner (7 team NTC) - Jonathan Drouin (3 team NTC as of July 1, 2021) - Jeff Petry (NMC for the full deal, full NTC in 15-16, 16-17, 17-18; 15-team NTC in 18-19, 19-20, 20-21) - Carey Price (Modified NTC, NMC) If you have any questions, either PM me or reply to this thread. (As this is a thread for everyone, if there's something you'd like covered, please let me know.) More information will be added throughout the season and as it becomes available. The thread will be cleaned out periodically to try to keep all relevant information within 1 page.
  7. I'd still send him somewhere. If they think he needs to build strength, go back to Finland. If they want him to get more playing time, then go to Laval. I know there are some that are fawning over him but he's not exactly lighting it up. He's holding his own - which is great, by the way - but if that's all he's doing, I wouldn't be burning time on his contract just for that. Also, unlike junior players, he could be recalled if/when he's sent down so if he gets on a roll or injuries strike, he could easily be brought back if they wanted.
  8. Well...any preferences for who should be in the photo for Wednesday? (Assuming Montreal holds on, of course...)
  9. Anthems

    That's odd. I know they used to do the anthems. That's probably a question you'd need to ask them though - it's not anything we have the answer to. I'd like to see TSN do the same but they have studio discussions and then go to commercials when the anthem is on.
  10. Well, the Habs got some nice breaks that period. Drouin draws a penalty shot (and scores), Plekanec banks one in from behind the net, and Danault (or Tatar) gets a dribbler to go in. Weird way to score three but I'll take it.
  11. 2018-19 NHL General Discussion Thread

    I saw it among the tweets on the main page. This was the first one: Since then, the Leafs have made the recall official and Andersen has a knee injury (DTD).
  12. As always, we'll use this thread to discuss news and notes around the league plus whatever crazy ideas Ottawa comes up with to save money next.
  13. 2018-19 NHL General Discussion Thread

    It's amazing what a couple of weeks can do. At the beginning of the month, Toronto had too many NHL goalies. They lost two on waivers (McElhinney to CAR and Pickard to FLA). Then their AHL starter (Kasimir Kaskisuo) got hurt. Now, Frederik Andersen is injured and they've been forced to call up an ECHL goalie, a throw-in they got in the Matt Martin trade this summer. Their NHL tandem until Andersen is healthy is Garret Sparks and Eamon McAdam. Suffice it to say, Toronto will be in some more high scoring games.
  14. I think Bergevin is operating from the Tinordi playbook again. Put a high price tag and don't play him to avoid the risk of injury with the hope that someone will eventually bite. That didn't really work with Tinordi (the reported ask of two 2nd's) but maybe Bergevin thinks it can work here.
  15. Based on line rushes, it's Peca that will get the spot.
  16. Early indications are that Niemi will start again - Price is at practice but I guess isn't 100%. Shaw isn't at the skate either as he's dealing with the flu. If he can't go, will Peca draw back in on the wing or will Scherbak make his season debut?
  17. The only issue with that is you take someone who can shoot a little bit off in place of someone that still has a really weak shot. If teams are sagging off Petry now, how much more are they going to ignore the point with Mete there? That's one of the problems on the 2nd PP unit as he has basically been ignored with that unit. If you want to try a different d-man there, why not Reilly? He's not a great shooter either but he'd be more of a threat than Mete.
  18. It's disappointing that they didn't score on the two-man advantage but it's hard to be too upset considering they scored three in the period to tie it up.
  19. Something tells me you won't be the only one. He's a good passer but I'd rather see him take some of these open shots. If nothing else, it'll stop defenders from cheating on the pass.
  20. After splitting a pair on the road to start the season, Laval (1-1-0) heads home for a pair of games against Binghamton (2-0-0). Defenceman Gustav Olofsson appears to be doubtful to play this set as he works his way back from a shoulder issue. Lines are based on last game's +/- listings plus some guesses. Tangradi - Seney - Lappin Studenic - McLeod - Anderson Rooney - Speers - Bastian Pietila - Sharangovich - Gabriel Strait - Jacobs Yakovlev - White Ramage - Kapla Johnson Agostino - Chaput - Grenier Shinkaruk - McCarron - Froese Jevpalovs - Vejdemo - Belzile Audette - Evans - Alain Moravcik - Sklenicka Kulak - Fleury Lamarche - Lernout Lindgren Puck drop is at 7:30 PM EST on Friday and 3:00 PM on Saturday. 91.9 Sports has the coverage in French while TSN 690 has Friday's game in English. Friday's game can also be seen on RDS.
  21. Oct. 12/13, Binghamton vs Laval

    Tough loss today - despite outshooting the Devils 41-15, Binghamton leaves with a 2-1 victory. Evans had the goal for Laval. https://theahl.com/stats/game-summary/1018385
  22. Oct. 12/13, Binghamton vs Laval

    Only one change for Laval this afternoon in the second half of the back-to-back set as Michael McNiven makes his season debut in goal following the emergency recall of Charlie Lindgren to Montreal.
  23. Non-Rocket Habs Prospect tracker

    As part of an article on The Athletic (paywall), there's a report that the Habs intend to sign Ryan Poehling as soon as his college season ends. No big shocker but it wouldn't be surprising if he's in Montreal's lineup down the stretch depending on how St. Cloud's playoffs go.
  24. Oct. 12/13, Binghamton vs Laval

    Tonight's lineup: A side note, one would think they could make the names just a little bigger. There's a lot of empty space in this picture...
