  1. Romanov and Kulak. We get pinned with Mete because he gets pushed around more than a Leaf fan in the nosebleeds at the Bell Centre. Face-offs. Until these two can hit 50%, then we need at least one excellent taker of draws. Cumbersome sentence. Embarrassing. Not that I want to do anything other than let him go at the price he seems to think he's worth. Much better sentence. If his demands fall, fantabulous. Otherwise, he's just not in the budget.
  2. Tatar-Danault-Gallywagger Drouin-Suzuki-Anderson Toffoli-KK-Armia Lekky-Evans-PoPo-Weal-etc Three lines that can actually score! And a solid, if not flashy, defence corps. And a real back-up for Price that can take over for periods of time when necessary. Call me optimistic.
  3. Would you re-sign Galchenyuk over the summer for a small contract?
  4. I'm reading more and more how Bergy really did screw this one up. Offerred the same as Dallas too late, some reports saying his offer didn't have full detail in it, like when bonuses etc would be paid. I'm not sure about the sources, but I'm a firm believer of the smoke-fire theory.
  5. Well it wasn't a trade, so really no issue there.
  6. Anyone know where Juulsen's game is? Developing? Stopped? Any potential or busting out?
  7. And yet one legitimate first line centre would make you think the team could do quite well.
  8. I think I saw a graphic recently which places Montreal firmly at the bottom in terms of players brought through the system who have made the NHL based on the last years. I want to find that.
  9. And his stubborn insistence on sticking with Therrien far too long.
  10. It's a good contract. I get the fear with that number, but that's at least his value. I agree that the issue is with Plex and Shaw etc. Though I do believe the latter was signed with the expectation he was going to be a top-6 guy.
  11. Well, if I'm honest, I try not to think about the Habs. It hurts..
  12. Its a fair comment. I have to say I'm not against what he's done at the NHL level. What bothers me is our pitiful drafting and terrible development.
  13. Grigorenko hasn't signed yet in Russia. Has the offer from there as well as two NHLclubs.
  14. Have to think this was part of plan b if Radu signed elsewhere. I think if Radu stays we don't sign Hemsky.
  15. You're becoming quite cynical, Cuke.
  16. I think you have to keep Chucky now that Radu is gone.
  17. At this point and considering the quality of attackers out there, I wonder if the best bet is to throw things entirely at Julien and tell him to work magic. Sign Grigirenko and Yakupov on the cheap. Losing Radu is a big loss, but in the cap world I can see why Bergy had to limit his offer. Unfortunately the low quality of what's left makes me wonder if throwing as much poop at the wall to see if anything sticks might be a worthwhile endeavour.
  18. Can't wait for our farm team to continue to suck and be almost completely incapable of developing talent.
  19. Good riddance Beaulieu. I think that's a pretty good return for what he's become.
  20. This is only a win if it brings the Cup, at least presuming Sergachev becomes the stud he's expected to become. If we don't get a Cup, Subban and Sergachev are Bergevin's legacy and the reason he's fired. I don't like that Drouin's acquisition seems to equate to Chucky's departure, because that feels like one step forward (in the present) and one step back. We need 1-2 high end centres and now at least 1 more top-4 D to be Cup competitive. If we move Chucky, i don't think we're any better. Maybe worse since Sergachev was projected to play. Im really on the fence here. If we aren't hoisting and parading soon, this could be a devastating trade.
  21. Draisaitl and the 4th would be where I'd start. There would have to be something else in line for defence, because ours would not be playoff caliber without PK. Also, if we trade him because of Therrien, that's about the most embarrassing thing imaginable. That could send me to being a fan of another team. That would be the ultimate as bush league. Edit: Shattenkirk would be reasonable enough to make this interesting. MB would have to know he could make the deal with Shattenkirk signed before pulling the trigger on dealing PK. My son just said McDavid. I'd be good with that. Lol Second edit: maybe ignore Shattenkirk as I hear Klefbom could come over if we toss in the 9th. Fascinating.
  22. Not a rumour, but Lucic is going UFA. Let's get Emelin to talk to him about joining..
  23. Are they increasing roster sizes to, say, 50 to accommodate all the injuries from the compressed schedule?
  24. Would Chucky have had that ppg had he played for, oh, any other coach in the NHL who would have identified his talent much sooner and played him far more than the Desharnais etc of the league?
