    Great point…that is stellar. I guess Houle did something right. Naturally, we had to go and throw away both Beauchemin and Ribeiro - a nice illustration of the distinction between drafting (evaluating prospects) and development/asset management.

    McDounagh and Sergachev is some of our later brainfarts (although the Drouin-trade looked decent at the time)

    It's nice to see him getting some somewhat regular game action after last year was a complete write-off for him.  He's one prospect I have a hard time slotting in the rankings since he simply hasn't played much and what he has played has been against lower-level competition.

    They also write he is 2nd in the league in save%.

    Evans should be played at Centre.... and the whole idea that DD says we need to shelter him and can't play him against other team's good players is bullshit.  This is a lost season, this is the exact time to play him at centre and let him show what he has as a defensive player against those lines. 

    I think maybe it will be the new gm who will replace DD.

    It was a gross overpay at the time - and I said that when the deal was made. A 1st and a 2nd is a stupid overpay for a guy who was clearly at best a 3rd line centre. 

    It shouldnt have been the better 1st round pick. Even if it was top10 protected. Bergevin desperate to try and make them team a bubbleteam but injuries and not replacing Weber and Price doomed the season before it started. Better we either kept kotkaniemi or kept the picks but our then gm trying to save his job.

    If the GM manages to find a taker for Price, that will be a sign that he is some sort of managerial wizard. 

     

    I believe #31 will retire a Hab. And probably get his jersey retired - appropriately, IMHO, since he is the only authentically all-time great player we have had in the post-Cup era.

    I would be ok with retireing Koivu and Price because they are the two most memorable players we have had during my fandom of the team.
