  1. Don't underestimate Arber Xekaj, who is 1 year older. He's much bigger and meaner than Romanov also.
  2. Welcome to Montreal Slafkovsky! I admit I thought the Habs would pick Shane Wright, but I have to trust Hughes and Gorton (aka Horton). At least until they screw up. LOL
  3. I am glad to hear they are working with him; hopefully that will build him up into a better person, instead of tearing him down like the "cancel culture" would prefer be done. I don't condone what he did, but he was an immature kid when it happened. Bergevin also eff-ed up by drafting him, when he asked not to be drafted. I wonder if that debacle will get discussed at an NHL GM or governor meetings. I would think if a kid decides to opt out of their draft year, then that should be allowed.
  4. That's a good point. I wonder exactly what his bonuses are? Other than the something tied to winning the rookie of the year award or finishing in the top vote-getters for that, what other types of bonuses could they be?
  5. Agreed. I would like to see more of Ylonen to get a better read on him.
  6. I am late in posting this, but our newest podcast (episode 89) was recorded the evening of the trade deadline, March 21st. Quite a lot of Habs topics were discussed, and many laughs were shared too. You can listen to it at the Habsworld URL below, or from your favourite podcast feeder. Please note, if you use Spotify to listen to our podcast, you will have to scroll to the bottom of the list to find the newest episode. This is due to a bug with the Spotify app; I am working with their technical staff to get this worked out. https://www.habsworld.net/2022/03/habsworld-podcast-episode-89/
  7. Yes. As Brian mentioned, Paul and I are active in the forums. Jonathan, not so much. Feel free to ask any questions about the podcast, and/or give me feedback.
  8. Good day everyone Our newest podcast, #88, is now online. We had a lot to discuss given the news of the hiring of interim head coach Martin St. Louis (and why there is the interim tag), the recent trade of Tyler Toffoli, the play of the Canadiens since the coaching change, and much more. Feel free to give us feedback (bad or good) here, on our Podmatic host, or any of the many podcast feeder services you use. -Norm http://www.habsworld.net/2022/02/habsworld-podcast-episode-88/
  9. Hey everyone The latest Habsworld podcast is now online, where we talked a lot about the new Habs GM and many other Canadiens topics. Give it a listen. http://www.habsworld.net/2022/01/habsworld-podcast-episode-87/
  10. Well, Mailloux is off to a strong start with the London Knights. He scored two assists in his first game, and two goals in his second game.
  11. https://www.sportsnet.ca/nhl/article/kings-hire-former-canadiens-gm-marc-bergevin-consultant/https://www.sportsnet.ca/nhl/article/kings-hire-former-canadiens-gm-marc-bergevin-consultant/ Interesting. At least he's off Montreal's payroll.
  12. Another Habs breakaway (Suzuki) and a slash at the last moment causes Suzuki to flub the shot. No penalty again!? Referees are a joke in this game.
  13. What was that effing ref looking at on the Caufield Breakaway?!
  14. Is it just me, or is the Savard Kulak pairing one of the worst defensive duos the Habs have ever iced? I know the team is decimated by Covid19 but these players are supported to be NHL experienced blueliners.
  15. Hey everyone A new Habsworld podcast is now online. Jonathan Rebelo, Paul Macleod and I had a lot to talk about including Geoff Molson's front office clean out, Marc Bergevin’s regime with the Habs, some potential GM replacements, Alexander Romanov and much more. I hope you'll give us a listen, and rate us through your favourite podcast feeder. http://www.habsworld.net/2021/12/habsworld-podcast-episode-86/ https://habsworld.podomatic.com/enclosure/2021-12-01T10_53_47-08_00.mp3
  16. Clague is an interesting pick up. He was pushed down the King depth chart after Sean Durzi arrived; from what I can tell he was their #8 defenceman not including injured veteran Sean Walker. He's just in his 3rd season as a pro, and spent most of that time developing in the AHL with a few call ups the first two seasons. He's supposed to be very mobile, a good skater, and mindful enough defensively. He's only 6' 00 in size so he will struggle against larger opponents like all small-ish offensive blueliners do. I think this is a good move, since he's a much better pro prospect than Corey Schueneman. I hope this move is not at the expense of Norlinder, as I would like to see him given more of a look with the Habs.
  17. Neech, I agree with you, and said pretty much the same thing in the latest Habsworld podcast (#85).
  18. If Allen is going to miss the next game, for the love of God Bergevin, call up Primeau. Of course Dom will need to start him, and I am not confident he will.
  19. Podcast article URL Hey everyone! The newest Habsworld podcast, episode 85 was recorded this week. Many Habs topics were discussed as well as a few NHL ones. I hope you will give us a listen and share some feedback.
  20. That's accurate, but also very true for nearly every NHL team. Let's see what happens when the Leafs finally get a penalty or more called against them.
  21. Great start for the Dvorak line on the first shift!!
  22. Hey everyone! We recorded a new Habsworld podcast last night. Among the many topics we discussed the Nick Suzuki contract extension, Carey Price entering the Player Assistance program, the Jesperi Kotkaniemi offer sheet saga, along with all of the off-season additions, pre-season moves, and much more. Please give it a listen. I love any feedback, good or bad. Podcast URL
  23. I would love to know, exactly what types of bonuses are given to new players on their ELC, and on 35+ veterans on their one year contracts. So far I have heard only rumours of bonuses for rookies like voting for the Calder trophy and for winning it; also bonuses of games played for veterans. If anyone knows of any recent examples of either class of bonus, please let me know.
