  1. 1) 38 wins 36 losses 8 SO/OT wins 84 pts 2)7th in Atlantic 3)21st in league 4)4 x 20 goal scorers 5) suzuki with 82 points Ya baby
  2. I like it. A full game recap is easily found via video. I enjoyed the format of the ten thoughts.
  3. Tonight I felt like Ghule was the best hab. He had a great game. Gignac was noticeably good. I bet he gets another look or 2. Norlinder had a pretty good game. Slafkovsky has looked much better when he gets touches. Firstly he's getting a lot if touches. secondly, he's looking dangerous and making good choices when he gets them.
  4. I watch probably 60 to 70 games when they suck. And closer to 80 when they're giid
  5. I'm with you. I just think dach has all of the tools and if his health and confidence can stat strong, I'm big on him. Love to see his f/o % reach mid 40s this year.
  6. Hopefully he puts on a minimum 10 of weight. Future top pairing player? His development has been exciting to follow.
  7. Word gets around with this sort of culture. I'm sure it's similar to corporate life. I left a company where I had more stress and poor culture for a job with slightly less pay, and a very good culture. This is a good look for the organization.
  8. What a strange trade. That's all Petry was worth? The good here I suppose is the optics that this management team will do players a solid. This could help them down the road when they're in the Ufa market. So end result is Hoffman+Pitlick+ 2.3 mill cap space for 2 years Lagare, Desmith, Lindstrom, 2nd, 4th. Bonus of some good karma with players?
  9. The article says "ask 10 people and you'll get 10 different answers." On his projection. This seems very true with him. I would say it's too early to tell. Covid, suspension, injury time was too much. He's a couple years behind in development, so may need one or two years to accurately see where he could fit in on the team. That's provided he has the social licence to play for the Habs in the first place.
  10. Agree. He's the best rd option. There is a tonne of development happening throughout the line up. If he's into it, I'd rather have him on the top pair than any other rd.
  11. Lucic would probably crush wifi. He needs to learn to defend. He doesn't protect himself at all.
  12. My thought is that if he's happy here, he should stay till the deadline. Petry fills a huge hole on the team. Savard was great for what he was last year, but there is no way he should be getting 1st pair minutes. Petry makes the team better and shifts the defensive depth closer to where it should be. This team was a trainwreck in theor own zone last year. Forwards and defense are going to nerd to play better in their own zone if they hope to compete in the future. If the tank is over and the aim is to start learning how to win, Petry helps that as a player now, more than a pick later. Of course this all hinges on his engagement level. If he's not into it, flip him fast.
  13. This year the habs need a top 4 rd. Petry is that. I say keep him. As long as he doesn't act like a baby and hurt his performance.
  14. Gallagher made 3 million when he was producing at a 6 million pace. Now he's doing the inverse. Every team has a bad contract. His doesn't bother me too much because there's always that chance he starts producing again.
  15. Finns are stereotypically good defensively. Seems to me Ylonen is as well. This could weigh in his favor as well.
  16. I really hope for all involved that this works out. Poor kid will forever be measured against michkov and Leonard. If michkov becomes kaprisov or Leonard becomes Tkachuk, we better hope he becomes Pietrangelo at worst. Otherwise the media and fans will eat him alive.
  17. Yep. They had their 2 tank years. Time to build. Start winning. I want to see more won puck battles this year. I watched almost every game last year, and I just had no confidence that they would come out with the puck after a battle. I'd like to see improvement there and improvement on defensive positioning. I don't expect to make the playoffs, but let's make it interesting at least.
  18. If Matheson can continue, you thank your luck and keep him. Praying he doesn’t get hurt.
  19. Pure speculation here but my guess is that they weren't high on Michkov for whatever reason. If Will Smith had dropped, they probably would gave drafted him. They looked at the remaining players and ranked Leonard reinbacher and others as equal. So they drafted for position. Hughes has been quoted saying that. Draft bpa, but if they are equal, draft for position.
  20. That is so cool. I liked Budaj. He was the ultimate backup. Seems like the sort of dude I'd enjoy having a beer with and shooting the breeze.
  21. I can look through every draft in the past and find players drafted in the top 5 to 10, which can easily be traded for or signed as Ufa. It's the Kiril kaprisov, sebastian aho (later rounds), jack Eichel, Leon draisaitl talent which is much harder to trade for when they are young. You're right. Middling is not fair for this top 5. I just look at his talent level and think he would be my first choice.
