  1. With rumors of Weber having to retire do to his injury, I thought we need a Weber appreciation post. The last 2 years he has played with a high amount of pain and for that i give him all the respect in the world. It just sucks that Bergevin wasted 3 good years of Weber playoff hockey with a retool instead of trying to put a contender on the ice. He will be missed on the back end and you can noticed it already. Best of luck Weber and if he wants to get into coaching I hope the habs bring him back in a coaching roll.
  2. This is why they couldn't match Kotkaniemi offer sheet. If they did Suzuki contract would of been way more money. Still might be an over payment on him but we should see.
  3. I think all the expansion draft drama had a toll on him and broke him down. But I'm glad for him asking for help. If he tried to play with his mind not in it, could of made things worse. So good on him.
  4. We need center and d depth and their adding a gaoldtender . Who's the top pick in this year's draft🤔
  5. Well we saw what happen in the playoffs when our key guys got hurt especially Weber and Petry, we just couldn't generate offense. This year division and conference will be back to normal , which means we got to Be better than anyone of these team's. Tampa Toronto Boston Washington Pittsburgh Carolina Florida NYI Philadelphia I believe the team's above I mentioned will be playoff team's. Now are we better than anyone of them? Do we have the depth to compete with them? I know we're better than these none playoff team's Ottawa Buffalo Detroit NJ Blue Jackets NYR So I think it's going to be a battle with Montreal Philadelphia NYI Florida For those last 2 playoff spots. If we're healthy we're in. If we get injuries look for the usual tail spins around Christmas time and again around trade deadline time. And our usual draft pick in between 15-20. We got lucky the last 2 years which is why media will over look us. Much like they do every year. But key points you will hear in all media review of the habs will be strong on the wings, question marks down the middle at center, question marks in net and on D.
  6. Byron won't have any trade value till next year.
  7. I don't think that they're cutting pay or cheap. I think they're just trading guys that don't want to be there and Trying to change their locker room atmosphere. Buffalo isn't Arizona, buffalo just sucks at trying to build a winner.
  8. Yes players have been traded then flip to other teams before. And for those reasons you listed I would think buffalo would be interested in Dvorak more than they would be in Kotkaniemi. Dvorak would be a better replacement for Eichel then Kotkaniemi would be. A 1st, Dvorak, Armia, and a top prospect would be a better hall for buffalo than any offer package involving Kotkaniemi. But all in all I'm okay with Dvorak and Suzuki as our top centers. The only thing that worries me is our depth on D. Man if we get any key injuries on D we're in trouble.
  9. So here's a question, would buffalo be more willing to make a Eichel trade with Montreal more now with a package centering around Dvorak, more so then they would In Kotkaniemi 🤔
  10. Well i originally only posted our 1st round picks. But then tomh said I should put the number were we picked them. I knew if I did that people would say picking low is always hit or miss. So I put players names that are noticeable today to see the difference. For me it's scouting and I think we need a change from Timmins and the rest of our scouting staff.
  11. So under Bergevin our development of players especially 1st round picks has been really bad. We currently have only 2 1st round picks playing on the team in caufield and Romanov. (3rd overall)Galchenyuk was traded (3rd overall) Kotkaniemi was let to walk (9th overall)Sergachev was traded (25th overall)Poehling book is still open on him (25th overall)McCarron bust (26th)Scherbak bust (26th overall) Juulsen bust (16th overall )Guhle looks good (31st overall)Mailloux mistake pick So I added the spots were we picked McCarron draft year Theodore was picked after Galchenyuk draft year most noticeable was Rielly Kotkaniemi draft year most noticeable tkachuk and Hughes Scherbak draft no one that noticeable but if we traded up one spot we could of drafted Pastrnak Sergachev was a good pick Juulsen draft year we could of pick Beauvillier Poehling I think was a good pick at 25 Guhle was a good pick Hope that's a better break down then earlier Galchenyuk and Kotkaniemi should of both started in the AHL not on the big club right away. We done really bad on development of these players with the exception of Poehling and Guhle hopefully. What needs to change? Is it development or scouting?
  12. I for one don't understand why Bergevin signed Paquette and Perreault to begin with other than to keep the French media off his back for lack of French players. We have the depth on the wings. I would of kept that 4th line center spot open for someone to try and win a spot in camp and preseason.
  13. I think he'll be competing for that 4th line center spot vrs Paquette.
  14. What the new lines could look like after the Dvorak trade and letting Kotkaniemi walk Toffoli / Suzuki / Caufeild Hoffman / Dvorak / Gallagher Drouin / Evans / Anderson Lehkonen / Paquette / Armia Ex Byron, Poehling , Perreault I think we have to much winger's and should trade some to upgrade the LD side of the D.
  15. Maybe Bergevin doesn't match and pays someone to #### with the hurricanes season so they miss the playoffs and we get a higher pick out of it lol.
  16. Arizona will win the lottery based on their own pick they don't need ours 😂
  17. I don't see us making the playoffs, I see us picking a where from 9th-15th (bubble) again. So our pick will be a high pick.
  18. We can always use the 2 1st round picks to trade up in the draft. Maybe even trade for the first overall pick.
  19. I don't think I can wait one more hour... Don't you people who live in Montreal have spies🕵🕵 at the Bell Center 🤔
  20. Going to be fun seeing Mcdavid and Crosby playing on the same team.
  21. Depends on what happens with Kotkaniemi. If we match then Suzuki will cost use more I would say between 7-8mil a season. If we don't match Kotkaniemi offer sheet then we can save money on Suzuki contract and get him for between 5-6mil.
