  1. We have an official ECHL affiliate with the Maine Mariners? Must of missed that news.
  2. But if you do a separate deal and give them an additional first rounder to essentially not match the current offer sheet, you are better off since you get Aho at a cheaper rate.
  3. Ya definitely played a huge factor in the outcome of the series. A healthy Durant and Thompson could of meant a Golden State championship. When those two were not on the court it was a pretty simple plan for the Raps. Stop Curry. While Green was good he didnt have the same kind of impact and wasn't as great of concern to the Raptors. Nothing should get taken away from the Raptors Championship. Beat some great opponents this post season and could never count them out of any game. Great resiliency. Took Canada and the city by storm. Now is the time to celebrate but they will have one big question this off-season. Can this season convince Leonard to stick around? The rest of the team will be relatively the same for next season before the following where a good group of their players become ufa's. If I were him I would take a one year max deal and stay in Toronto. Though I could see him trying to max out with years due to his injury history, I think you give the Raptors a shot next year within their window. At the end of next year you reevaluate and see if you like the direction they are going. He can always get to his preferred destination after that and still get great money if not more.
  4. Worked out pretty well for the Raptors so far. Also nice not having Lebron in the way. Raptors make the NBA finals for the first time in franchise history with yet another come from behind win over the Bucks. Heck of a series. Thursday will mark the first NBA finals game played outside the United States.
  5. Lucky for the NHL it is at least going to OT. Saves them some face. Vegas deserves this game. San Jose has no business being in this game except for a terrible 5 min/game call that should of at the maximum been 2 mins. Great entertainment value however.
  6. It's not over yet. Still holding out hope that we can find a loop hole and get the Habs in the playoffs. We have to find some evidence that would cause Columbus to have to forfeit some of their wins. Maybe they used an illegal player, deflated the pucks, or altered the ice conditions in their favour? Its gonna take lots of research in very little time. If all else fails and we cant find the evidence perhaps we can make our own evidence. Hopefully someone here has some IT knowledge that would be able to create a non-existent paper-trail showing Columbus has paid off some referees throughout the season. Or if we want to go after Carolina there may be an option. If someone can get in the ear of the Hurricanes owner Thomas Dundon, maybe we can convince him to fold the Hurricanes franchise mid-season. I mean he does have a history as earlier this week he folded his football league the AAF before the season was even over. **Caution** some the of ideas mentioned above are probably illegal. Once the plan is executed we will be relying on this post and any others to be deleted to avoid prosecution. The Habs will be 2019 Stanley Cup Champions!
  7. Toronto not doing us any favours as well. Carolina up 2-0 Armia!!
  8. Maybe not an opinion that Price would like since he's on a quest to get something I won't mention, but with a 5-0 lead wouldn't that be a good time to get Price some rest. Niemi should be able to close it out. Nevermind just lost the shutout.
  9. Think of how much better off we would of been had we not of bought Steve Mason out. Never made sense to buy him out with our massive amount of cap space available his year. Anything would of been better than Niemi. Lindgren has kind of put the Habs in a bad spot this year. The plan was for him to be able to supplant Niemi if he faltered but he has faltered himself.
  10. If that two second mark holds up it would be the fastest two goals (one team) in NHL history. I'm sure they will scrutinize to see if the clock started and when it went in etc. It was previously 3 seconds. https://thehockeywriters.com/fastest-two-nhl-goals/ Islanders also tied the then NHL record of 3 seconds in 2016.
  11. 35 - 35 - 6 - 6, 82 points 6th in Division 233 goals for 23rd overall
  12. Guess the Habs won't have to trade for a 7th round pick at the draft next year! Overall a solid pickup. We have the salary cap space to take on contracts like this. Not sure if they plan on using Armia as a centre cause he has mostly played the wing. We'll also be in line to sign him as well since he's a RFA. There are teams that could still use Mason as a backup so if we retain salary I'm sure we can get a little bit for him. That or trade Niemi.
  13. 2 years at an average salary of 3.15m Hate this trade. Galchenyuk was my favourite player. So much upside but underutilized by the Habs. Not sure where our goal scoring will come from next season unless of course the net is empty.
  14. 45-29-4-4 98 pts 3rd in division 6th in the east 236 goals
  15. I mean the cost is relatively nothing so there can't be too many complaints but it's just confusing. The question becomes what is with all of this depth? Weber, Alzner, Petry, Schlemko, Benn, Davidson, Jerabek, Morrow, and now Streit. There isn't room for 9 on the roster. Almost a certainty in my mind that Markov isn't coming back as he would bring that number to 10. The problem is he is the only one that can play in the top 4 outside of Weber, Alzner, and Petry.
  16. Ya I guess I wasn't that clear on it. If it were to be McCarron involved it would be straight up player for player. No second rounder. Ya I'm okay losing de la Rose as well but his trade value can't be that high. Emelin was picked over him. And that guy is doing alright. Ya I think we would still be able to take in a smaller player in the right circumstances but don't know if Bergevin would be all that willing. If it came to Drouin - Spooner - Gallagher that's a pretty small line.
  17. If I were GM I would go and make an offer for Ryan Spooner. He's small being 5'10" but has the ability to fit in as your second line center. He had a bit of a down year last year and was scratched for some games in the playoffs so his value would be low. 25 year old who put up 49 points a season ago and 39 last year. I know this probably won't happen since Julien and Spooner didn't quite see eye to eye with Spooner saying Julien didn't like him as a player. Spooner for 2nd round pick and de la Rose. Might need to add more though to entice. Maybe McCarron.
  18. Vilardi is dropping a bit. I thought Detroit was going to take him. Guess teams are concerned about his skating.
  19. It's a very scary thought that Oshie got that since you would think Radulov would want something similar. Both 30 yearold wingers. The Caps will be paying Oshie till he's 38. I would give more money to get the years off but I think it's starting to look more and more like Radulov won't be back if that's what the market is.
  20. Chicago is busy. They are also starting to report that Panarin is headed to Columbus for Saad. Gotta be more to that puzzle that they still have to announce.
  21. Habs protect Byron, Danault, Drouin, Galchenyuk, Gallagher, Pacioretty, Shaw, Benn, Petry, Weber, Price No real surprises there. The debate was only Shaw or Hudon at this point with Beaulieu out of the picture. Here's the full list: http://www.tsn.ca/nhl-reveals-protection-lists-ahead-of-expansion-draft-1.782246
  22. Mike Smith to the Flames for Brandon Hickey, third rounder and rights to Chad Johnson. Coyotes will retain 25% of his salary. Not sure he's the answer in Calgary but at least they are attempting to fix it.
  23. Apparent that his value was low since I'm sure MB took the best offer but at that payment he was much better off keeping him. Obviously they wanted to protect Benn. Even if you leave Beaulieu exposed to Vegas I would rather lose him that way then for a third rounder. At least then he's the player Vegas takes and you don't lose a Hudon which could very well be the case now. Better be something else in the works cause our D just got worse.
  24. Only a third round for a 24 year old with top four potential Terrible return in my mind
