    Bonne Jenner anyone? By all accounts a work horse... Seems like a prospect that would in no way go bust. (plus Canadian, sorry I'm tired of American picks even if they are from Minnesota).
  2. Who would you pick up to score 40 goals of the available players?
  3. We all know that there will be some form of injuries, no team can escape that, so another important factor if a major piece goes down would be the back up. Would Aaron be ready? or another bulldog come up and play too the level we saw Decharnais and Pacoretty play this season? I know Engvist is ready and may make the team as like another Darche or Pyatt or something, but if Plecky goes down, think we will have someone who has real deal offensive talent who could help the habs? Obviously this will be easily answered once the next season starts and see who makes the best advances in the off season.
  4. I really hope that deal doesnt pan out...

    Had to say

    Some points to make here. By Religious Western Canada governing Canada we could always look at Steven Harper... the religious Westerner.. The Alliance Church, to which Harper has belonged for decades, believes Jesus Christ will return to Earth in an apocalypse, won't ordain women, strongly opposes abortion and divorce, condemns homosexuality as the most base of sins and believes those who aren't born-again are "lost." I love how Conservatives say things like "the opposition parties try to vilify the conservatives... and then say stuff like "Layton is a con-man and scam artist"... then talks about how evil the left is... I would like to know how Jack is a con-man. That is a ridiculous comment... considering Steven Harper took over 2 million dollars for a secret government run media station... aka propaganda... I do believe that falls under jurisdiction of fascism... add that too all the cuts to activist groups... I think that the oppression of freedom of speech is a little scarier then some extra money for people who are having a rough go of things.
  7. I am expecting a lot from him coming back off that injury. He has the confidence now and he seems by all accounts extremely determined.
  8. They were both injured, Georges especially could have it brought lower. I do not think 2.5 is out of the question.
  9. That would be a great trade for us ha! I cringed equally as much with Ballard and his mistakes as Spacek this year Only Ballard will have some kind of future
  10. I really like that Montreal seems to be making an effort to sign local players, even though many Quebec players are scared of the pressure in Montreal (or are ex Nordique fans )
  11. Will the Canucks win in 6? I think it will be a very close game!
  12. What do you think his chances are with the big club in the next 2 years?
  13. They also have the 7th overall pick this year, sold what... 5 years worth of sell outs and 13,000 season tickets in four minutes... I think they are off to a great start Any idea if they will be playing in the North-West or South-East Division? I remember hearing something about having a schedule made for them to play in the SE division.... is that true?
  14. Love it, the more Canadian teams the better I say. Plus Atlanta was showing signs of a team on the rise so Winnipeg has its hands on a pretty decent team, with Bogosian, Kane, Enstrom and Buf even Little and Pavlec it looks like a pretty solid outfit. About the name, I think it would be insanity to change it to anything other then the jets, so they must be hung up on "The Manitoba Jets" or "The Winnipeg Jets" All in all I hope they do great!
  15. Damn... that sucks, could we bury him in Hamilton?
  16. How bad would it be to buyout Spacek? Wiz is worth five in my mind, he is young enough that he will progress defensively, he could learn from Gill or Markov plus Martin is known as a defensive coach. If he improved defensively it would be a great deal. Lars Eller isn't exactly small either.
  17. FORWARDS Mike Cammalleri ($6.000m) / Tomas Plekanec ($5.000m) / Max Pacioretty ($2.000m) Andrei Kostitsyn ($3.250m) / Scott Gomez ($7.357m) / Brian Gionta ($5.000m) Travis Moen ($1.500m) / Lars Eller ($1.270m) / Scottie Upshall ($2.250m) Tom Pyatt ($0.500m) / David Desharnais ($0.750m) / Ryan White ($0.850m) Andreas Engqvist ($0.900m) DEFENSEMEN Josh Gorges ($3.500m) / Andrei Markov ($5.750m) Hal Gill ($2.250m) / P.K. Subban ($0.875m) James Wisniewski ($5.000m) / Alexei Yemelin ($0.984m) Yannick Weber ($0.875m) GOALTENDERS Carey Price ($2.750m) / Brian Boucher ($0.925m) BUYOUTS: Georges Laraque ($0.500m) OTHER: Pouliot can be traded for the best offer Spacek anything possible to get rid of him I don't pretend to know much, but I signed Scottie Upshall, always nice too add a 20 goal scorer. I personally really like Pyatt, Desharnais and White so I would like them on the team, plus Engqvist by all accounts seems ready for the NHL so he could replace any of the three. Boucher, if we could get him, I think would be a great mentor for Price. Fire Away! CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $2,337,824
  18. Very happy with this, everyone knows Gill is a key member of the locker room and a great role model for PK and the other young players on the team. Plus he is still a extremely valuable penalty killer. As for Boyd and Dawes, I do not think this surprises anyone.
  19. http://aol.sportingnews.com/nhl/story/2011-05-17/penguins-gm-shero-shoots-down-jagr-rumors-gives-sidney-crosby-update Pitsburg seems to not be interested
  20. Im loving the first two games! Im routing for Tampa, may the bruins burn, and Vancouver, lets go Canada! Tampa has Lacavillier, stlouis, stamkos, all fun players and good guys and Guy is the coach plus im pretty sure one of their assistants had a brain tumor or something, they were my secound after montreal heading into the playoffs from the east. Im really hoping Vancouver brings the cup back to Canada...
  21. I like how the Diaz guy scored as much and AK
  22. All teams needs some form of 4th or 3rd line energy and checkers, but not someone who will get suspensions and give the team a bad rap. I love energy guys who will run around and throw hits and guys who will stick up for their teammates, but not players that will do cheap shots away from the play or retaliate hurt someone or just get bad penalties. Discipline is what we need, considering how many penalties we took this season.
  23. I would just be surprised too see Montreal pick up a big name in any position, mainly because we havn't been able too before, Danny Briere anyone? Youre right Bieska could go, but lets say a team like Toronto makes a move on him, they have the space, he and his wife are from southern Ontario, they still have a home there... I would love to have him and would love to have improvements on the lineup too make it deeper, I agree that a lot would have to go right for us to contend, but I do not believe we will get anyone. I hope I'm wrong though! Here's to optimism!
  24. Loved Wamsley's post Personally I do not want him on Montreal. Montreal is and should always be a finesse team, a fast team, a team who does not take cheap shots. If he has a mean streak well he can take his services to another team. Sure, sign him, then trade his ass and pick up a prospect who could turn into someone great! There are too many "mean streak" players in the league and if I see a hab give a head shot like we have seen from Chara or Cooke, or step on someones skate like Ryan, we'll I'd be disgusted. This is not the image I want for our team.
