  1. Sorry misinterpreted your post. Frankly, I think guys like Bourque and Ryder are perfect examples of too much emphasis being placed on size when runts like Gionta play tougher then them.

    I agree. IMO it makes zero sense to have a Prust or Moen with Eller, to have both with him is stupidity!!!

    And gionta gets paid more then both Ryder and bourque to do so.

    There's a difference in going out and laying a solid cheque and playing tough and getting in the dirty areas, and simply being dirty and taking cheap shots when someone's back is turned.

    Worked for Boston

  2. Under JM, vets had a lot more leash than the young guys. I can't recall mistakes that players made but I know they were not perfect. How do players get to become vets? They are played...thats what I am getting at. This team is not lacking for vets as it is: Gomez, Gionta, Cammy, Moen, Gill, Markov, Cole.

    I just don't get the theory of these 3rd and 4th line marginal players putting the habs over the top. What the habs were missing last year was scoring, not depth on the 3rd and 4th lines.

    I Disagree i dont thing we have any really good 3rd 4th line type guys last year but ryan white, we had a bunch of young guys that are more like 2nd line type players..we got to get bigger and stronger on the bottom 6..We need guys that hit hard and can drop the gloves when need be..

  3. I disagree with all of these goalies. IMO, Habs should stick with clear permanent backup. Someone who clearly knows that he has no chance to be #1.

    Must admit that I'm a fan of Price in the nets for 65 + games.

    Iam pretty sure these guys know the well only be back ups at this point in the nhl...They were all back ups last year.

  4. here are some guys i think the habs should look at foward-Simon Gagne,Eric Belanger,Max Talbot,J.P. Dumont,Anthony Stewart,Steve Bernier, Tomas Fleischmann,Scottie Upshall,

    fighters-Raffi Torres,Zenon Konopka, Daniel Carcillo,Steve MacIntyre,

    Def-Cam Barker,Mike Commodore,

    goalies-Marty Turco,Jean-Sebastien Giguere, Chris Osgood,

  5. Mike Cammalleri / Tomas Plekanec / Jaromir Jagr or Alexander Frolov

    Max Pacioretty / Scott Gomez / Brian Gionta

    Scottie Upshall / Lars Eller / Andrei Kostitsyn

    Travis Moen / Ryan White/Jared Boll

    David Desharnais /Mathieu Darche

    Andrei Markov / Alexei Yemelin

    Hal Gill /Josh Gorges

    P.K. Subban/ Jaroslav Spacek


    Carey Price/Marty Turco

    Trade Benoit Pouliot for jared boll

    sign upshall, jagr or frolov

  6. Cammalleri - Plekanec - Scottie Upshall or Frolov

    Pacioretty-Gomez - Gionta

    Eller-Desharnais- Pouliot


    Moen -MacIntyre

    Gill - Subban




    I think we sign upshall or frolov

    we trade Kostitsyn to Columbus for boll and a 2nd pick

    we sign bieksa.

    we sign MacIntyre.

  7. I would completely agree if Cammy and Gomez were adding more to the offence. Right now I feel like we need more top shelf forwards who are moderatly consistent in scoring.

    but if we being in a couple hard noses players then it work make it easyer on guy like cammy and gomez and they could just worry about scoring.

  8. The more I think about it, I think Vermette would be a good fit in JM's system, but I'm not sure we should deplete our wings when we've already got 3 capable offensive centres on the roster (4 once Eller develops). Vermette wouldn't be a rental, and with Pleks signed until 2016, Gomez until 2014, and with both Eller and Desharnais coming cheap and ours for years, I don't think it makes sense to acquire another centre without one going the other way. In this cap world, I'd want to keep our young guys over Vermette.

    tsn as vermette as a LW/C

  9. He'd help, but I'm not sure we want to pick up a guy that has regressed significantly this year, and that is signed until 2015 at $3.75M. With Columbus still technically in the mix for the playoffs, and Brassard on the IR, I'm not sure they'd move him either...

    Now if they'd take him for Gomez, then maybe I'd consider it. :)

    how about Kostitsyn for Vermette
