  1. Retool or rebuild. That is the question?

    speaking of worsening trend.... If the Islanders keep slipping out of reach of the 8th spot, then Tavares' chances of being traded or going UFA will grow. Therefore the rebuild/retool from the Habs management needs to be maximized at the draft date - or come July first at the latest. This means two things: the present top wingers/forwards need to come out of their shells. Hence a repeat of yesterday's performance against the Islanders needs to become something consistent until the end of the season, Logically this will translate into more wins than loses. And this would mean we will not get a top 5 pick. If this doesn't happen (and the draft pick is >8th place) then the habs need to trade picks to get high profile players to add to the team to convince Tavares or any other Messiah to join the Habs. But logically both scenarios together need to happen (good finish of season and good trades and UFA pick ups) Certain recent articles point at MB giving the moon and stars to Tavares...AND I AGREE but it depends of the player to want to accept this. Imagine for a moment... Marc on his knees telling Tavares that the Habs have been waiting for him for 20 years TWENTY YEARS. Tavares would go down in history - regardless of the outcomes of the next 8 years at 13 millon (or whatever max) per season- It takes a hell of a pair of cojones to say yes to that... But if he did ..boy what a tremendous moment for player and franchise. Article: https://www.fanragsports.com/islanders/dreger-eyes-potential-ufa-tavares-contenders/
  2. Plekanec traded to Leafs

    Just watchefd Pleky's first shift as a leaf...... sigh
  3. Plekanec traded to Leafs

    exactly Metallica, that 50% was key All in all Happy with what MB did. we got what we paid for... Plek is likely gonna live in a hotel room or at Polak's guest room... and he and family can travel more easily between cities than winnipeg or the US... On a side note to what if Markov had the same treatment.... the difference is Rick Curran.. .i.e Pleky had an agent
  4. Cleaning Bergevin's Mess

    because the real question is who replaces Bergevin? will Brisebois really do better? and if not who else is on the list??? ..WE should follow what Toronto did....no doubt and no alternative really IMO... I do think we need a new president that's for sure... Molson has to go back to making watery beer
  5. Cleaning Bergevin's Mess

    I think Molson realizes he is stuck. Because frankly apart from raising your hopes, what does a new GM really bring? Your still stuck with the mandatory francophone GM who will hire another francophone coach -- if the following year Julien cant reship it.. Molson is gonna have to still compensate MB -and remember molson is still paying million or two for the previous coach. There is something F---ed in Mtl... The taxes the media... thats scare UFAs, the only real solution is getting better drafting IMO.. so im more and more inclined to be a Pro-tanker
  6. 2017-18 NHL Thread

    Honestly, what is there to lose? I would not be surprised if the story will be that Molson called MB asking for him to add the show attraction...
  7. 2018 All-Star Weekend Thread

    while i wait for MB to pick up Jagr check out the last moment of this dual interview... where it seems as if Michel Therrien is saying sorry ..all i can read from Pks lips is I know I know... and then an odd finish http://www.journaldemontreal.com/2018/01/28/decouvrez-ce-que-subban-manque-le-plus-de-michel-therrien#cxrecs_s
  8. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Nelson Cant shoot right? ah then useless suggestion
  9. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Good grief .....would he cost more than a player? Letang is arguably at his lowest value ever... Given How Pitsburg is tight on cap wouldnt Letang go for less then a Galchenyuk?
  10. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    With none of the desired roster assets going to arrive to MTL via Trade we have no choice but to trade for picks or sloppy seconds or lets just sat risky players So if its very --very unlikely to get a top roster player then what could MB more realistically do or (Allah forbid he really does) What candidates do you FEAR MB will end up trading for? Im thinking Kris Letang will end up being one posibility
  11. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    and they kept passing and still no shot .....thats where i noticed all of the 5 players were lefties.. thats all and stated the obvious lol wow wonders what a one line 6 word statement becomes.. is this what happens in Habsworld now?
  12. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    lol good grief where did i say that right shot is the solution.. and your stating the obvious 11 or so min ago when i wrote boy do they need a right shot was at that moment during their aguably best moment of that period where a pass to the guy in the slot couldnt shoot cause he was on his backhand.
  13. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    On second thought dont keep watching... the pain and anguish we all feel is affecting you
  14. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    Oh no its more than that... you need to watch the game more
  15. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    man are they missing a right shot
  16. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    I didnt see the first half of 2nd period....Im watching the NBC stream where jerk Roenick showed the horrible effort that lead could have prevented a goal. Galch should be benched according to Roenick
  17. but what happened? why such a decline? its not like all the the other keepers are All stars?
  18. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    his doomsday drop pass i can sort of live with,.... its his "oh no im too tired to skate back to try and fix my mistake" that is the basis why hes never going to merit C position
  19. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    Galchsucks and his lack of effort... he cant be serious about his career.... oh yeah he merits the centre position soooo much yeah right!
  20. I need to look up why Fucale is ...sooo out of the Habs Plans.....
  21. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    Shite! I knew the odds weren't that great anymore but to that extent?!??! im gonna look up the rules for the current lottery . Thanks dlbarlr Hopefully the pro tankers realize this
  22. CANADIENS @ BRUINS, JAN 17, 19:30 ET

    Makes me wanna see the breakdown of the past 10 draft Loteries.... how often do bottom 3 teams end up picking top 3
  23. New practice lines

    this season has taken such a toll on me i dont even remember where he played last season.. did he play all of last season at centre?
  24. New practice lines

    I think Galch is playing "better" hockey for at least 5 games now and probably isnt time to burst this bubble- yet. Furthermore i tend to agree witn RDS and other french outlets... Galxh isnt defensively responsible enough to be C - especially in the offensive zone. and i think Habs management believes that too. so while he's a Habs it wont happen
  25. Permanent Rumour Thread

    I agree with you Chicoutimi and thats why im concerned that this drought will likely lead to three decades without a cup. So be it edit- So to resume. Probable Habs plan: wait to see if they can sign Tavares or another top Cenre via UFA - IF NOT its Garage sale and Molson cleans upper management
