  1. Has Kinkaid won a game all year? The only way you are going to have a chance to get into playoffs is keep him out of the lineup.
  2. I don't know where the notion come from, that you can only have a certain amount of centers. In a perfect world, all players would be interchangeable , including defensemen. History would tell you, that on the forward lines, centers are the most sought after. The reason is that most coaches play their best players at center, no matter what league you are playing in. I am suggesting that you could have a team of thirteen centers. You could also have a team where you move defensemen up to forward when needed and/or vice versa. My point is that having extra centers is an asset and not a disease you must cure.
  3. Your question sort of suggests we need an upgrade on and off the ice?
  4. Agreed. I think he makes decisions too slow when the puck is on his stick. Anyway he has been moved to 3rd pairing. I believe our problem is getting production out our first pairing. Something has to give.
  5. 47 31 3 1 4th in Atlantic 7th in East 249 goals
  6. MB will be graded by his total body of work, just like everybody before him. I do believe there is some reason for optimism. At the end of the day, the success of the Montreal Canadiens will define him.
  7. We can argue what caused what, but as far as can see the results constitute the pudding. Therefore to-date I give MB a failing grade. CC is right.
  8. Day 2- Worse than the first- NADA- MIA
  9. Sounds just about right. If Montreal matches, does he come to Montreal and/or does somebody out bid that ? OR THAT IS acceptable and he never becomes free agent?
  10. I do believe agents become free at the end of the month, not the end of the Stanley Cup play.
  11. Agreed-and if that don't work, morph him into coaching
  12. No you are not alone. I keep hearing we need defense first. I believe this defense would look a lot better with a little more offense. Duchene works for me. I am good with anything that gets that putrid powerplay going.
  13. Just to clear things up I said for starters which would be something to the effect of " in the first instant" or " I will start my argument with" and nothing to do with starters as you propose.
  14. My argument was value for the third pick. Tkuckuk had 20 goals this year. We may not know Kok's potential for another three years. I don't believe necessarily in picking BPA but there is a case that they didn't here. I would tell you that they have needed a #1 center for years. I don't have a problem with their pick. Just saying1
  15. You seem to be on point, again I might add. Yeah, if you can get Karlsson, by all means. It is clear that this team needs more talent-- top end talent
  16. I think we will be wondering for a while whether we made the right choice at #3. Have we had our exit interviews? Starving at a little bit of news on something!
  17. You have captured this pretty close. My biggest peeve is that MB didn't take his share of blame last year and despite positives going forward, we are not close to where we need to be. MB's tenure is still on notice as far as I am concerned.
  18. Colour it like you will but we finish in the bottom half of league. I expect we will play better next year as well. You got to account for the teams around us getting better as well. I hope MB has the balls to wear this and not put the blame on attitude as opposed to talent.
  19. Big F'in Whoop? maybe even plays in the last game of season.
  20. Absolutely--- We don't have enough horses. The smallest and youngest team are running on fumes. This is nothing about attitude, as it wasn't last year. It is about taking the blame away from the real culprit. I hope MB , if he is still around, has sense to spend that money that he has been hoarding on a top free agent.
  21. MB left Laval out to dry--- I am convinced that he don't give two hoots about the farm team-- MB's tenure is starting to take on water- this could be his Achilles heal
