    Mete + Kulak tonight much, much better than Mete + Romanov last night.


    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.

    Unfortunately centre is not necessarily a deep position next summer amongst UFAs ... but on the other hand, if Suzuki and KK seize the 1C and 2C positions then what is needed to replace Danault changes ... Evans and maybe Poehling have a chance to TRY to make their own cases.




    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





    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. 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.

    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. 


    And his stubborn insistence on sticking with Therrien far too long.

    You think???? We needed to keep chucky AND Rad to be better offensively.  Although I have zero condidence that galchenyuk will last a full year in Montreal and I can see him being a 70+ point player elsewhere.


    Well, if I'm honest, I try not to think about the Habs. It hurts..

    In all seriousness, it's not as though I didn't approach Bergevin with a very open and supportive attitude. He has earned our cynicism as far as I'm concerned.

  7. 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. 

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. I guess we just have to agree to disagree. I don't think taking Tkachuk or Dubois first is necessarily bad. In 4 years time we'll know what they do in the league, don't be suprised if one or both has better than the .58 ppg Galchenyuk has

    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?
