  1. Habs Win! Habs Win! Habs Win! Lol Got a little excited. Next time I might even watch the game...
  2. The NHL has become a joke. Video review (particularly the way the NHL does it) has left the door open for bias, which clearly allows for the fixing of games. I am not saying it happened, but perception is reality. You can debate all you want about the two calls in overtime last night - but that is the point - you CAN DEBATE! Which means either call could have gone either way. That means someone other than the players determined the outcome. The minute that happens there is the 'appearance' of bias. Team Tank is happy the calls went the way they did. Habs fans looking for a good game are not. Blackhawks fans are thrilled. The 'appearance' of bias is something that sports MUST work every day to eliminate at all costs. There are all kinds of laws in business that address the 'perception' or 'appearance' of things like bias, conflict of interest, etc. Why the NHL feels it is ok to just put their hands in their pockets and whistle their way to the next rink is a mystery to me.
  3. Is something like this even allowed? Price to Edmonton 1st and 2nd round pick to Montreal. Habs retain 50% of Price's contract for this year and next. Oilers on the hook for 100% after that. It gives the Oilers two years to win with Price and their current team (more or less) and two years to figure out how to get under the cap with the Price increase in year 3..... Habs get two picks for Price and $10 million (and change) of cap room. I'd do that in a heartbeat if I am Montreal. And Edmonton gets a chance to WIN NOW!
  4. Just a thought. Could Gorton mentor Paul Maurice enabling him to take the next step from coach to GM? Granted I'm not sure Maurice even speaks French. Nor an\m I sure he is the best choice. But at some point you'd think that would be his next move - to become a GM somewhere.
  5. Nope. They have to play another game and...well...
  6. I came out really hard against Petry. But...then I went back and watched the quote again - the entire interview. I can't defend his play, he has been terrible! - but go watch the clip again - I don't think he is blasting the coach for not having a game plan - he is blasting his teammates for not following one.....
  7. Now that is a situation where Patrick Roy might actually work. Roy is GM and coach. His focus is on the players, so mainly a coach with a little more say. Gorton is the real GM.
  8. I'd say with a comment like that one of two things are going to happen. The coach is being fired, or Petry is gone. Not sure if he is begging to leave, but you don't undermine your coach like that in public. Absolutely unprofessional by Petry. Yes, it shows how messed up this team is but a veteran leader knows better than to call out his coach/team in public like that.
  9. Completely agree BUT how do you get Patrick to agree to that and then keep his nose out of everything else...given his history... It is one thing for the team to want that. It is another to expect Patrick to completely change his demeanor.
  10. Hard to disagree with most of that. I'd keep Byron and Perreault though. Perreault's team friendly contract (assuming we keep him for $1 million or less) gives us a versatile forward moving forward for minimal cost. He looks like a guy who would like to finish his career in Montreal, and may just find an extra gear in front of a home town crowd - assuming his eye injury is behind him. As for Byron, I think he is more valuable to us that the return we would get. His obvious leadership, speed on his skates and penalty killing alone are all valuable tools. They just don't show up on the scoresheet. Another 20-goal season would be a bonus! Honestly, I think we put too much focus on goals and assists to evaluate players. Obviously it would be nice to have guys who can do that (although we haven't had a real goal scorer in a long time...), but a team needs players who can fill multiple roles. Byron and Perreault both do that.... Hoffman and Dvorak, for example, were brought here to score. If they can't do that....then time to move on....
  11. I thought that was KK's age when he got called up? LOL. I've written Santa and asked him to give you two wins in a row so you can change your avatar.
