NHL Hall of Fame (23/23)



  1. The problem with this organization is what's its always been depth and hanging onto aging players way to long and ending up not replacing them when they leave or retire. Their is a reason why we can't win games when we go through injuries to key players, because we just don't have the depth or talent in the farm system to over come the long term key injuries. Instead of making trades to bring in someone to help until the player returns, we do nothing and hope our 3/4 line talent and not NHL ready players and fill the hole. But that never happens and we tail spin. The D guys you just listed on any other team are bottom pairing guys. But because of lack of depth and talent on Montreal these guys are playing top paring minutes. Our D needs to get blown up and rebuild.
  2. I honestly don't think stats should be looked at for habs players this year. I mean have we gone 2 games with the same lines let alone line up? This year is a wash just bring on the lottery draft.
  3. Wonder if he will get the same kind of passes from the media and fans for 9 years like Bergevin did 🤔
  4. This is a question if we aren't going to rebuild. Not if we're going to rebuild. Of course if we're going to rebuild we don't look at trying to trade for a guy like Chychrun . Just saying what if management just look at this as a wash year and aren't thinking of a rebuild.
  5. If this isn't a rebuild just a year from hell and we plan on contending. if we call Arizona and asked about CHYCHRUN and Arizona wanted Romanov and Caufield in return would you do it? Keep in mind next year would could have Wright and Chychrun in the lineup on a healthy team🤔
  6. The struggles of the big club is a big indication of how little depth and talent we have in our prospect pool, when it comes to top 6 talent. Bad drafting and player development is a big result of this. It goes back to when we started to be contenders for the cup after Price, Gallagher, Pacioretty, Subban all made the jump to the NHL. We started trading away picks for players that never did workout and we never did draft and develop replacement players for aging players. The effects of all that are felt especially now.
  7. I've been a habs fan a long time but man I think this is the worst Dcore the habs have ever put together. We need to blow this D up and rebuild it. I mean what happen to that D system style of play from the first 10 games of last year?
  8. This is what's wrong with sports, you give guys like Kane, Brown (NFL) chance after chance after chance. But a guy like Kap gets Zero , makes zero sense to me.
  9. Oh okay didn't realize that but then we do Price, Gallagher, Armia this year Savard, Edmudson, Byron next year At the end of our rebuild we would have over 20mil in cap space. Hopefully we can draft an elite 1st line center and elite RD and LD to add to our younger new cord group of players.
  10. We have the room to eat up bad contracts to make them easier to trade IE Price we eat $4.50mil Gallagher we eat 3.5mil, Savard we eat at 1.5mil , Armia we eat at 1.5mil , Edmundson we eat at 1.5mil. Drouin we eat 2.5mil. It would make those contracts easier to trade we could ask for higher end prospects and picks in return for taking on that much of the contract. Then by the time our rebuild is done all that money comes off the books. Would also help us stay at the cap floor. That would probably be the best way to do this rebuild with a lot of bad contracts on our team.
  11. How to make a Price trade if we're going to blow this up. Price has 5 years left on his contract which works out great for us in a 5 year rebuild plan because we can eat the max amount of his contract and it will come off the books right when we're ready to come out of the rebuild. So now Price becomes a much easier trade for team's at a cap hit at 5.5mil then 10mil over the next 5 years. So if I'm Edmonton I need to improve on the D side of things and in net, i give Montreal a call and offer them this deal To Habs 2 1st round picks , 2nd round pick Ceci, Koskinen, Foegele To Edmonton Price, Lehkonen and Chiarot This trade would improve Edmonton and put them as a cup favorite. Habs can then move Ceci and Foegele else where.
  12. Last year look at our point total and then the point total of the American teams that would of been in our conference if it was the same. We would of never made the playoffs. We made the playoffs because it was an all Canadian division. Am I glad we made it to the finals yes, but if under the regular divisions it's another year missing the playoffs.
  13. Last 2 years shouldn't count we were given a playoff spot. Other wise it would of been 2 more years with a top 10 pick.
