  1. From Ek: February 24, 2008, 7:16 PM ET

    "The Canadiens are confirmed a player for Brad Richards."

    And from his forum chat (when asked about Hossa to Montreal his e3 from earlier) his reply: "yes indeed. The Thrashers want Grabovski and a #2 I was told."

    If Eklund is correct about that Grabovski and a #2, I think I'd do that. Your thoughts?

  2. Nice to hear but Bob was busy yesterday so when he says "talks have heated up" he's probably referring to other teams, not us.

    I'm really only expecting the Tanguay one, I'm losing hope for Hossa.

    Ya you could be right, but why would he be scouting the Bulldogs? I think Gainey has an offer on the table for Waddell and he wants to see the prospects play in person, hence why he is at the game. Hopefully we land Hossa, how unreal would that be?

  3. The playoff thing is a total red herring. This guy is a lethal offensive weapon all year long. I'd love to have him, but not at any price - he is still a rental, after all.

    Not necessarily, I have a feeling Bob will try and lock him up right away. Everyone thought Kovalev was supposed to be a rental and even though he was well into his 30's, he ended up becoming a huge piece of the team and still remains like that today. I think Hossa could be a similar thing and even turn into Bob's replacement of Kovalev when he eventually gets too old/retires/ whatever happens with him lol

  4. As per TSN....D Dreger reported that Waddell is in Toronto scouting the Bulldogs. He mentioned it during the first intermission. We'll see!!??

    Ya I saw that as well, neat stuff, hopefully he likes what he see's...I'm personally pretty flexible when it comes to trading for a player like Hossa. How many players are over 6 feet tall, over 200 lbs and can FLY on the ice like Hossa can. He's a finisher, as well as a playmaker, and would be an incredible addition to our team. Sure, many people rip on him for his bad performances in the playoffs, but I just looked up his playoff stats and besides 1 or 2 years about 8 years ago he hasn't been bad.

    On top of all of that, he perfectly fits into our lineup with his style. Bring Hossa to Montreal!

  5. Agreed. We aren't very strong 5 on 5 (although we have improved which is good) so we NEED to capitalize when we have all of those PP's presented for us. Easy to lose games if you are Montreal when you don't capitalize on those opportunities. Last night was a very sad night because of that.

  6. yes, you must be kicking yourself as we speak!!

    was it a great idea for me. in september, to pick up tickets for tomorrows game ?? :lol:

    Yes because Montreal is going to kick some ass.

    Why are French Canadian women so good looking that I can tell you RIGHT NOW that when I grow up I will marry one?

  7. Yep, that's what I had in mind. Here's a shortlist off the top of my head:






    Okay, it didn't turn ou to be much of a shortlist but there are definitely more. The first two on that list are done with this site, the last two used to be around a lot but now post once every few weeks whereas matsnaslundsuperfan posts once in a blue moon. I also used to like Howie_Morenz.

    Anyways, does the idea have any support? We could have a button next to the top 20 posters.

    This seems pretty cool, however I don't know if faerie should be considered really... He was around for like a year, and pretty much had like 3453462456247256 posts, mainly about hot finish/swedish guys. Liked the habs, but was a fan of another team (Vancouver maybe? I kind of forget...)

  8. sheesh, down 2-0 after 1. The boys better smarten up, we can't pull off these comebacks any time we'd like. As for goaltending, I don't blame Huet for the first goal, but boy oh boy he could've EASILY stopped the second goal, that goal was plain awful. I've noticed our goaltendings isn't bad, but terribly inconsistant. hopefully huet recovers in the 2nd and 3rd periods.

  9. please tell me these Tanguay rumours are true. If anyone here has any doubts on him, take a look back at his career stats, and one word to describe him will pop into your mind: CONSISTANT. consistant 70-80 point seasons for Tangs, and he is not one-dimensional like Ryder, he is a great all around player and an incredible passer. He would really help the first line with Koivu and Higgins.

  10. According to Bob Mckenzie, Gainey has an offer on the table for Tanguay...he said Ryder and a pick. Gainey is also coveting Sundin, Hossa according to Mckenzie...

    Obviously Sundin is a great player, but I would puke seeing our young talent playing for Toronto.....
