HabsTrick450's Achievements

CHL Star

CHL Star (8/23)



  1. Who are the 3 players who made up the line known as the PhD line? Which Lord of the Rings star wore a Habs jersey under his costume during shooting? What actor, known for roles in Goon, Million Dollar Baby, Undeclared and others, is originally from Montreal and a huge Habs fan? Who scored a hat trick on December 4th 2009, during the Habs' Centennial Game against the Buins? Who scored a hat trick during the Stanley Cup Finals in 1993 against the LA Kings?
  2. I'm not moaning about the past, I am very optimistic about the future of the team. However, Chicoutimi Cucumber asked why we are not an elite team yet and I offered my opinion, which is that the way some of the players I listed impacted the team (whether it be with their on-ice play or their off-ice attitude/behaviour), crippled the Habs' hopes to contend for the Cup during the late 2000s. Management is not fully to blame but some mistakes were made, namely rushing Latendresse to the NHL, trading McDonagh (who's now a legit top 4 defenseman in the NHL), not being more stern with players that had behaviour problems (such as the Kosty bros) and so on. I can't blame them for the draft picks they made, as they probably scouted well and drafted players they thought were the best available/suited the team's needs.However, I can't believe that Claude Giroux was drafted 2 spots after David Fischer or that Jeff Carter, Dustin Brown, Ryan Getzlaf, Brent Seabrook, Zach Parise, Ryan Kesler, Mike Richards & Corey Perry were all picked in the 1st round after the Habs selected Andrei Kostitsyn. Just so many what-if scenarios. Still, this team has a bright future and I will enjoy watching it unfold.
  3. Just think of the number of Habs-drafted players and that were let go/didn't pan out for various reasons in the Gainey-Gauthier: Higgins, McDonagh, Perezhogin, the Kostitsyns, O'Byrne, Locke, Chipchura, Grabovski, D'Agostini, Latendresse, Carle, Maxwell, Fischer, Valentenko. What a list.
  4. Morin redundant? The guy who hasn't even set foot on NHL ice for a game?
  5. I forgot about Scheifele, if anything, Burmistrov's departure gives him a better chance of finally playing a full season in Winnipeg if he's ready.
  6. Burmistrov leaves for the KHL, leaving the Jets in need of a center! Maybe we can send DD and package him with a prospect and a pick to try and get Evander Kane!
  7. I love how you're calling Steve Yzerman an idiot.
  8. Exactly. Bergevin and Therrien coming in meant the start of a new era. They want to take their vision and implement it to make a competitive team that will have a shot at the cup, that doesn't happen in a day. Pittsburgh sucked for years until they drafted the likes of Crosby, Malkin, Fleury, Letang, Staal and they won a cup. Chicago waited 40 years until players like Kane, Toews, Seabrook, Kieth matured to get them a championship. Patience people, the Habs are on the right path and for the first time in a decade, we have a front office that seems stable enough and a future that never looked so bright. This is why a guy like Coburn/Edler would be welcome. YES!!! David did beat Goliath. For a team like us who spreads forwards between lines, skill and will should be prioritized. Sure, having a couple of big players to protect the small ones is helpful, but a player with heart and skill is 1000x better than a big guy. Moen? Plays like a wimp while Gallagher plays like he's a power forward.
  9. With all the Trade/Talbot/Simmonds/Edler/Coburn/Jagr talk, I ask one question: Are we really such a small team? Forwards that are 6 feet or taller: White, Galchenyuk, Bourque, Eller, Moen, Pacioretty, Prust, Parros Forwards under 6 feet: Brière, Plekanec, Gionta, Desharnais, Gallagher Defensemen that are 6 feet or taller: Markov, Subban, Gorges, Drewiske, Emelin, Tinordi, Beaulieu Defensemen under 6 feet: Bouillon, Diaz Goalies: Both over 6 feet: (6 ft 1 Budaj, 6 ft 3 Price) A guy like Gionta, who everyone says is finished, still managed 14 goals, 12 assists for 26 points last season. In a full season, that's close to 50 points, which is the same pace he's been at since he joined the Habs. Gallagher plays like a big guy and I think no one will question Plekanec's heart. Brière is only here for 2 years and might return to his former self if played at center. Also, say what you will about Desharnais, but he still put up 10 goals, 18 assists and 28 points in 48 games. In full season, that's also about close to 50 points, which is just a little less then the 60 he scored the season before. I'm not saying that we shouldn't make ANY changes to the team: if we can trade Gionta or Desharnais for a good return, I won't object. However, we are not a bad team with the current lineup: Are we a cup contender? NO. But are we a team capable of making the playoffs and maybe winning a series? YES. Gionta's contract expires after next season, as well as Markov and Bouillon's contracts. Once this happens, Beaulieu will be able to be a full-time Hab and the likes of Nygren, Dietz, Ellis, Pateryn, Thomas, Leblanc, McCarron, Fournier, Collberg, Holland, will have a chance to battle for a spot. If they don't cut it, we will have cap space to get good players via free agency or trade. So my point is: the future is bright. If Bergevin can make a trade to improve the team, then do it. But not at the expense of our future. The Habs will be contenders in 2 years time.
  10. Josh Rimer of Sportsnet (not sure how credible he is) saying that he heard Jagr won't sign in Montreal.
  11. RDS confirming the Jagr news, saying that 3 teams are trying to sign him, including the Habs. Montreal is reportedly on top of Jagr's list and the ball is in out court apparently, he's waiting on an offer from the Habs.
  12. Well he DID score 16 goals and add 21 assists last season in 45 games. If he has the same chemistry with Pleks as they did in Kladno, a Bourque-Plekanec-Jagr line could be a threat. But the price has to be right!
  13. Not even close, Danis is way Better, has maintained a .911 SV% and 2.71 GAA in 50 NHL GP while Mayer has lower stats in the AHL! Sure, Danis is 32 and Mayer is 23, but i'd rather have Danis than Mayer as an AHL goalie, as Danis manages to have good stats in the AHL!
