  1. I've seen that (although not from mainstream media) ... some reports indicate that the issue in his family was in the past with a vaccine other than Covid ... hopefully a reliable source will address it ...
  2. Maybe I got GOLD STAR SERVICE because I am a Trifluvian ... LOL
  3. How about we wait and see how he does before we talk LTIR and retirement ... this is the first time he has sought any help and expect that the support he received last spring, this summer will continue into the season ... don't disagree that professional sports are a production-based environment ... but speculating on what happens if he fails seems counterproductive ... also ... LTIR is for those unable to play ... lack of production is not a reason for LTIR unless Jonathan were to again decide he was unable to play.
  4. Huh ... the complete opposite of my experience ... including a prompt response to feedback I sent in.
  5. Ylonen is on the Habs TC roster but: Newly hired coach fired ... player banned from training camp ... CBJs are taking covid seriously. Wonder if Ylonen will actually allowed to attend camp?
  6. A link to the game will be available via the Canadiens' homepage, and here is the lineup ... expect it will show up on their twitter account.
  7. Two different players ... taking on Niku (waivers or as a post-termination signing) would be an attempt to resurrect his long-term NHL potential ... signing Goloubef would be as a veteran to support the Rocket d-corps and only for emergency NHL purposes
  8. Now a good chance that it was a favour to MB's buddy Brisson ... not that it may not turn out to provide a veteran for Laval
  9. Agreed ... the "its up to the player to show us" approach has to be tempered by what is best to ensure that the player optimizes his potential ... so that ... the team gets the greatest benefit from that player ... both on-ice and under the cap (i.e., don't waste ELC years).
  10. I believe it is a look-see for the possibility of another veteran for the Rocket blueline ... if all goes well maybe a 7D if the Habs have an injury and need a body to be on the roster and available in an emergency ... unless he (unexpectedly IMO) plays well enough to earn a game or two in the event of need.
  11. Could turn out to be Rocket depth ... also wonder who his agent might be (perhaps the PTO is a favour to his representative)
  12. I'll keep an eye on the TSN690 website for them to post the Dredger interview ... ***IF*** true this certainly puts a different spin on how MB managed things this summer.
  13. The first 50 seconds or so is an extract from the TVA interview to air tonight (8:00 pm) ... as many have speculated and reported it is an anxiety disorder. A short extract from the RDS interview to air tonight (7:30 pm) in which he says he sometimes went three nights without sleeping I am eager, and optimistic, to see how he does this season ... anxiety/stress can have an incredible impact on one's life.
  14. Same question for Ontario (Belleville and TO games), Manitoba (couple of games against the Moose) and BC (couple of games against Abbotsford).
  15. It's not only the games he couldn't play due to travel restrictions but also the risk he poses to the team by being more susceptible to Covid ... both because he would then miss more games and he could then potentially spread it within the team ... wonder if they would loan him back to a SM-liiga team (likely? his former team the Pelicans)
  16. Not my preference, but in the (unlikely) event that the Habs were to get a top 4, LH-puck moving defenceman then Joel is the logical move ... don't see Chiarot moving to the right-side, even on the third pairing
  17. No surprise he is rumoured (favoured?) to be Team Canada's Captain at the 2022 WJHC ... he handles himself very well.
  18. IMO its a legit top 4 puck mover the Habs need ... someone who will get 20+ minutes per game ... ideally a RHD who can push Savard or Edmondson (switching sides) down to play with Romanov
  19. Habs have 7 NHL contracts on defence (Petry, Edmundson, Savard, Chiarot, Romanov, Kulak, Wideman) ... but Kulak does not see to be "in favour" ... if none of the rookie D make the team AND the Habs could move Kluak AND get Demers at Brett's AAV or less ($1.85M) it could be an interesting idea ... it would be quite a drop in AAV for Demers but it wouldn't seem he is likely to get a much better contract at this point ... Wideman/Demers as the 6/7 wouldn't be terrible.
  20. It is possible that some bottom of the roster players (e.g., 6/7/8 defencemen, 12-13-14 forwards) making $1.125M or less (i.e., can be fully buried) ***may*** find themselves in the AHL if they are not vaccinated, simply because their teams don't need the associated complications or distractions.
  21. If you have access to Bell File there is a new Sports Franco package (scroll down the page) with just those 5 channels ($10/month).
  22. Evander Kane defending himself in an ESPN interview ... he frankly admits he has had a gambling problem, but denies betting on hockey or throwing games ... the latter allegation always sounded "off" to me as a forward can't really do a lot to throw a game.
