  1. For a young Finish guy, that may be known beforehand, but never really experienced. Professional sports in North America is different from Europe. The player chooses, they are not commodities that can be traded. Losing Mete, and have the chance to join Aho and Teravainen is most likely a factor, just not sure how much.
  2. Whit the current Cap space situation, matching Carolina's offer is not the correct move, unless Bergevin still regard Kotkaniemi as a future franchise player. Suzuki and Caufield has both passed Kotkaniemi on that scale in my opinion. I'm also wondering if the signing had anything to do with Kotkaniemi lost his pal Mete? Take the picks, and go for Eichel!
  3. True, but to me, this drags the identity of the club I love into something I have some issues with. I don't like the fact that Logan was convicted and then awarded with being drafted by Le Glorioux. And I don't like how the whole Hoffman-Karlsson incident turned out. Not players or characters I wish to have a CH on their chest. I saw what was written by his girlfriend and I saw how Hoffman chased Karlsson when they met after the split. Adding two of them, is more than I can handle right now. Even if they are great hockey players, and everybody deserves second chances, I just wish the Canadiens had handle this with more concerns towards the couple that lost a child and towards a girl that had her body unwillingly showcased online. I wish my beloved Habs to be that organization.
  4. No, no, no! First drafting Logan Mailloux and then sign Mike Hoffman. I don’t like this at all.
  5. Ristolainen is another player that has far more potential than what he’s lived up to. Good move by the Sabres, assuming they will pick Powers. As I see it, this might be a trade that benefits all involved.
  6. I think you’re wrong on this one. OEL, in book, is the most underrated player in the leauge. With the right team, he’s a Norris candidate. Arizona picking up Loui Eriksson is the ”bad move” in this deal as he’s SO dependable on team mates to set him up. (Jordin Tootoo, anyone?!)
  7. Will the list of protected/exposed players be public?
  8. Strange season. In many ways! I was a bit surprised to see Julien go, but the change had to come at some time, and might as well be just now. Also surprised not have seen Frolik in the line-up by now, but that only shows how good Perry, Byron and Evans has been. Hoping that Lekhonen is cool about the situation as well. What we saw in the begining of the season is what this team is capable of, and that is nothing short of a contender. If just all the player plays at their best, the Habs are up there among the best. Regarding who shall play with Weber; Make sure the pairing with Petry is perfect. Weber should step down as Petry has evolved. Give Romanov the chance?
  9. I agree with the assessment of Weber and Chairot. Still, Webers locker room influence might make up for it? To me, Petry has passed Weber a long time ago as the best defenseman on this team. But what do you mean about Romanov is not ready? From what I see, he's solid and do all the things right...
  10. What a time to be a Habs fan! They are all keeping both Perry and Frolik out!
  11. Allowing 5 is never a good thing. Also it seemed like there was to many two-on-one. Bad bounces or bad play? And our 3 on 3 hasn't been convincing.

Same sniping ability. Must be the same guy? And as I remember Ryder... The even skate the same!
