Bantam (5/23)



  1. Well, for everyone who was cheering for habs to lose. The MTL slot would be where nashville ball was placed. ( alphabetic order ). So there you have it. Just a guess, unless the balls fell differently, all things equal, unless Nashville ball was out, MTL wouldnt have won the draft lottery. A 12.5% chance or into playoffs we go. You always go for the win and keep team going. There you have it, lets now all get behind our team! ( have a positive feeling about it..) very similar to the 1993 run in a different way!! Let get after it!!!
  2. Would be more fun if was just 1 for 9 PP in series!! Penguins are there to be had! Even a mediocre PP would give habs the win!
  3. Habs should just reject the PP! The PP had to end to tie the game.
  4. Well, that is the reality now at 3 to 1. At 1 to 0, a pp to take it 2 to 0 lead Habs. Instead its 2 to 1 , Penguins. At start of period, another pp , to tie it.. Its 0 for 7 pp .. All that is required is a 1 for 7 ( 14.2% , still very ordinary to below average ) This game would be, 2 to 0 or very least , 2 to 2 Now last opportunity, do we make it 3 to 2 down, or do we go 0 for 8 pp. We have 3 key players ( weber, price, petry ) all over 30. We have 2 young players at 20.. And an excellent 2 way centre in Danault. Great grit and scoring in Gally. With Tatar as support. Rest, we arent good enough. Drouin, has had too many opportunities, his hockey IQ is not there. Reality is coming to. Be, 0 for 8, or 3 to 2... Says it all
  5. Well, I brought out my habs Jersey from when I was 4 years old. I took it out of the frame, and held it, well too small to fit into it, haha Last time I did it was the 93 cup run and the OT wins... I am not superstitious, but sentimental as life long Habs fan. Suzuki is coming of age fast, with Danault penalties, he stepped up with the PK's Solid effort!! Great to have hockey back!
  6. Keep in mind, Domi may not play subject full medical review and weighing in on the risks. He is in a higher risk group. ( Type 1 diabetes). Bergevin has also confirmed that Max wouldn't be put at risk. End of day, will be Max, his family decision.
  7. https://www.nhl.com/canadiens/news/canadiens-agree-to-terms-with-defenseman-alexander-romanov/c-316861758 TBD start depending if and when season continues, or 24 team playoff option or season canceled. And if he and others signed can play this season if comes to that. Either way he is Team bound.
  8. Brian, Goalie has to be Tretiak for Habs Team Russia 😉
  9. First hope everyone is staying safe!! continued health to all. As it appears we will have a " virtual " NHL draft in June before and if and when we have a regular and/or NHL season. Details emerging with NHL memo circulation to all teams for discussion starting today, on final format. According to TSN and link below, Looks like the older format taking place is on the table by NHL with no more than a non playoff team moving 4 spots if they win the draft lottery. Only the bottom 5 teams can win the top position to select first overall. Which unfortunately is not good news for Montreal, even if they win the lottery under these conditions, the best they can do is select 4th. Well small chance they would win, so appears in cards they will be in the 7 to 9 selecting position. Which prospect would you like seeing the Habs select in this position? " ..The NHL also outlined the possibility of returning for this year only to the old lottery format which determined just one winner and that winner could not move up more than four positions. Under the format, the Detroit Red Wings would be guaranteed a top-2 pick. The Ottawa Senators are guaranteed draft picks of no worse than No. 3 and No. 4. The Montreal Canadiens, currently at No. 8, could move no higher than No. 4 with a lottery win, but fall no lower than No. 9.." https://www.tsn.ca/national-hockey-league-sends-memo-to-governors-and-gms-outlining-case-for-early-june-draft-1.1472203 Ottawa and bottom 5 teams appear to benefit most and will appear to support this plan. Most other teams will have a problem with it. Once this gets all confirmed, we can start talking about who may the Canadiens draft and if they will , as Timmons, alluded to be this draft selecting " Best Player " available. Stay safe everyone 🙏
  10. Geoff actually is a director of Molson Coors since 2009, besides also being current 'ambassador' and shareholder. From June 2015 to May 2017 he served as chair of Molson Coors.. Currently he is responsible for key strategic areas. Now from My own end and access to Liquor board data, and dealing with SAQ... Labatts has gained significant market share in Quebec.. So think it out and Geoff and Molson connection.. More Important to have main stay branding in team, to ensure market share. He isn't just a shareholder... much more He is a current board member of Molson Coors,

  12. Or get creative again and pick up a contract a team at cap limit or to clear cap space, and get a draft pick and or prospect. ( much like Mason / Armia last year ).. Use it to your advantage if there is an opportunity!
  13. Background from article December 2014 and Chariot junior roots and pro beginnings: https://jetsnation.ca/2014/12/15/defying-the-odds-the-chiarot-chronicles/ From above article quote : "..... Chiarot has NHL size and he knows how to use it to his advantage, something that’s a real big plus to be a successful NHL player. He’s your typical shutdown defender and while he is on pace to score 19 assists, his expected NHL output should be limited to his defensive abilities and any offense is considered a bonus. Think of Ladislav Smid without the odd defensive lapse. He’s a tough kid...." There you go...
  14. I Hey, I do not subscribe to athletics, it showed up on my phone thinking would be a preview, and long and behold the full article popped up. I know strange, ( must be a good sign , right ) so I copied and paste for myself and emailed it, and decided hey, for those who don't subscribe.. But yes received it even when I never subscribed. There you go! I figured for window of time now it's " free domain" but made share to credit the athletic.
