Yup and the Galchenyuk trade didn't address it, which is a bit worrisome, given that Habs have limited trade bait.

 

(e.g. couldn't they have got Robert Thomas or other centre prospect from St Louis for Galchenyuk?)

I guess those guys didn't have the right attitude.

Just seems so goofy, they don't need another lame motto.

Sadly, our GM seems to be stupid enough to sincerely believe the motto :1vomit:

The players make 50% of league revenues.  If salaries rise its cause the owners are making more money too.

League is making more money, better TV contracts, nobody in serious trouble unless you count how long the Coyotes have been a failure. When the lockout happened there were around eight teams losing a lot of money with danger of either relocation or being sold.

 

We had Sakic making $15M back in 1997. We will finally have this season two players making $15M in Price and McDavid. People forget how crazy contracts got in the mid to late 90s with the top stars.

I just feel like I lost a year of watching my favorite players play for nothing.

You lost a year cause owners couldnt stay within a budget without rules that force them to.

It wasn't for nothing. Ottawa had the best chance at a Cup in 04-05. So we stopped ourselves from that abomination.

O'Reilly is going to the Blues.

Buffalo winds up taking back pretty much the same salary as O'Reilly's signing bonus.  Interesting - I thought they'd get one of Sobotka/Berglund, not both.  And Buffalo got their 1st/2nd/good prospect (Thompson was a fairly recent 1st rounder).

A Montreal roughly equivalent offer:

 

STL 2019 1st --- MTL 2019 1st

STL 2021 2nd --- MTL 2021 2nd

Thompson --- Juulsen

Berglund --- Danault

Sobotka --- Shaw

So his trade value is of a 1st line center and his contract value is that of a 1st line center but he's really just a 2nd line center(one of the better ones though).

And that's why boys and girls I wanted Bergevin to pass on this trade. Thank god he did.

Steep Steep Steep, no wonder Bergevin thought the price was too high, it was. Would definitely have put a damper on our attempt to rebuild this thing rapidly.

 

I can't understand it but I actually agree with most of the things MB is doing since draft day, making me feel slightly uncomfortable to be honest,

As much as I wanted O'Reilly, I think everyone can agree it was a great decision not to trade for him considering the cost?

I am glad he didn't match the demand for ROR

I wanted to have him, but we are better off in keeping our path down the "reset"

Bergevin so far gets an A- from me this off season.

no crazy contracts signed 

no idiotic trade for Orielly

Only negative is the chucky for domi trade but I dont think its that bad of a trade as some here make it out to be.

I agree that MB has so far done well.

 

We didn't sign another Alzner contract, we didn't make a stupid trade for a band aid, the draft was good, got some picks for a cap dump.

 

Hope he can flip Patches for something good and move Weber for a kings ransom.

 

If he can do that then we are in good shape moving forward and could compete in 2-3 years.
