  1. With all the free agents that have signed over the last couple of days I am pretty surprised that nobody signed Peter Mueller. Yes I know there is a major red flag concerning his health. But for a C/LW who is 6'2 200 pounds, 24 years old, and averaged more than half a point per game for his young career its pretty surprising. And add the fact he's also a former 8th overall pick who can be had for cheap, I think someone should have taken a chance by now. This is where you come in BERGEVIN, all though you only have 10 million in cap space left and have to resign Subban, Diaz, and Eller, you should be left with around 2.5 to 3 million after resigning those three and that would be more than enough to get muller in montreal. To me Muller is the perfect risk/reward kind of player he is exactly the kind of player the habs lack which is a top 6 (Big scoring forward). His cap hit last year was 2 million and he missed all of last year, and that means there is no chance he'll ask for a raise, but what he will ask for is an opportunity to prove people wrong and showcase his " talent once again. And what other place is better than montreal to do that. So please Bergevin ignore the concussion history because thats in the past (hes now healthy) take a flyer on this kid because i guarantee you he's out to prove the league wrong in a big way. For those who want to see his stats here they are NHL Totals 254 55 88 143 80 2003-04 USNTDP Under-18 Team NAHL 43 10 16 26 26 2004-05 USNTDP Under-18 Team NAHL 14 11 13 24 16 2005-06 Everett Silvertips WHL 52 26 32 58 44 4 15 7 6 13 10 2006-07 Everett Silvertips WHL 51 21 57 78 45 6 12 7 9 16 12 2007-08 Phoenix Coyotes NHL 81 22 32 54 32 -13 -- -- -- -- -- 2008-09 Phoenix Coyotes NHL 72 13 23 36 24 -7 -- -- -- -- -- 2009-10 Phoenix Coyotes NHL 54 4 13 17 8 -5 -- -- -- -- -- 2009-10 Colorado Avalanche NHL 15 9 11 20 8 4 -- -- -- -- -- 2011-12 Colorado Avalanche NHL 32 7 9 16 8 -3 -- -- -- -- --
  2. Pierre McGuire hands down would be my number 1 choice, the guy is a hockey genius has very good eye for talent, knows what it takes to win. Would do Montreal wonders to bring him in.
  3. As for many of you that heard by now, Pat Hickey from the gazette announced that the habs have put Plekanec on the market. Off course this could be another false rumor, and add the fact that Pleks agent came out and said he does not want to go anywhere and will not waive his ntc, then all this is bullshit. But yet i'd like to put my perspective of all this. Reading comments from hab fans regarding this story today, everyone seems to be against trading Pleks. My question is why not? I know he is one of our best and most reliable players, but people wake up! if we have chance to put him in a package for an AllStar player like Nash or Getzlaff I wouldn't even hesitate. I know we have one of the most BoBo headed GM in the NHL, and I shouldn't get my hopes up believing we can win any deal involving pleks considering everyone thinks he'll trade pleks for draft picks and prospects (which is much easier to believe he'll do that). But I honestly think he's not that stupid, he knows we have a lot of good young pieces here in patches, subban, price, deharnais, eller, emelin, leblanc, geoffrion, and white, and add in our good veteran group in Cole, Pleks, Moen, Gionta, Markov and Bourque, this is still a formidable team. And add the fact that Gauthier's last 2 deals were very good in my eyes, with him getting solid prospects in Geoffrion and Holland, 25 goal scorer in Bourque, and two 2nd round picks for this year and next, for the overated cammalleri and an aging gill, u have to admit that's very impressive. But if gauthier is willing to deal pleks one of our best players, he better be getting equal or higher value for him (meaning an established NHL player with similiar or higher pedigree) and he should knows this because his job is on life support right now. So if you tell me We can get a Getzlaf for a Plekanec, Weber or diaz, nashville 2nd rounder this year and our first next year I wouldn't even hesitate, why? because he is big, productive and is an allstar. Same goes for Nash i'll give pleks, kostitsyn and diaz (don't like him whatsoever), and a first next year why? because montreal needs a superstar end of story. If Gauthier is able to pull off a trade bringing a superstar to montreal and still maintain our 1st rounder this year, I would actually jump the bandwagon and hope he stays because that would be a major step forward heading into the offseason, that for me would salvage the season. But then again all it takes is another kaberle trade to set us back once more.
  4. u can expect another disgusting game from the habs part
  5. Omg 19 years I was so far off what is the diffrence
  6. ya your right but we also didn't win the cup in the last 20 years either, its embarassing, I dont want the habs just to make the playoffs I want them to win the cup and take back their place at the throne where they should be.
  7. Honestly it's becoming really disgusting watching Montreal now a days I understand why Montreal loses games but them losing games while putting no effort or heart is a disgrace to this franchise, these players don the jersey of one of the greatest franchises in sports and all they are doing is taking a big fat shit on this team and not giving a damn about it whatsoever. Gauthier for the little time u have left as manager do this team right and get rid of these useless and horrible players in kaberle who can't play defense if his life depended on it on top of having no passion whatsoever for the game, Diaz and Weber who are too small, and don't defend that well, I don't care if their young and have offensive potential get rid of them. Oh and not to mention campoli as well, the guy is just horrible. Only keepers on defense is Emelin, subban, gorges, and Markov, (when he comes back, don't give a shit what people say about him with the injuries, when healthy he is still an Allstar). With beaulieu and tinordi coming next year we can afford to get rid of these weak heartless dman, get the prospects and picks and continue the young foundation we have in place already. As for kostitsyn get rid of him now especially when so many top forwards on the trade market are off now, kostitsyn is too inconsistent and he had more than enough time to prove himself. Palushaj bury him in the minors or trade him, the guy cant play in the nhl that simple. Nokelainen get rid of him completely useless, Darche too old, Gomez don't even get me started. We have great foundation in place with deharnais, paches, eller, leblanc, subban, Emelin, price, cole, moen ( hope he gets resigned), white, gorges, geofrion and Gionta. Plekanec and markov I'm on the fence because of inconsistencies and injuries. So please gauthier don't ###### this up, keep Aquiring assets for our future and get rid of those useless players who don't deserve to wear the colors of Montreal.
  8. Been reading a lot of reports online that the habs have some serious interest in carter. I read a report saying that an offer of Plekanec, Weber, Prospect danny Kristo and a 2nd and 4th round pick to columbus in exchange for Carter, and Derrick Brassard. I i'm kind of mixed on this kind of deal considering carters horrendous contract, but in a way it kind of makes sense for montreal considering both players are young and very good, and are 2 big body's as well. But this is a huge risk if such a deal exists. Well we'll have to wait and c come monday if carter will end up in montreal.
  9. There is no chance in hell the habs will be able to move gomez this season, they must wait for the offseason when his cap hit will go down to 5 million and hopefully trade him to a bottom feeder who need to add cap to reach the limit. that is your best bet of moving gomez, that or dump him in the minors.
  10. Anaheim would laugh in our faces if we proposed that.We may not even get one of those player with that proposal.And why the hell would you want to hang on to Darsche . I wouldn't mind Moen as a 4th liner,but definitely not 3rd line.Having a decent season(in UFA year) but look at his career and age. Why would they laugh in our faces again pk subban is the real prize in this trade you dont find 22 year old superstar d-man growing on trees these days, and especially Anaheim who have been starving for a dman. I look at it this way Subban and lets say a second rounder from cammalleri trade for Getzlaf, and plekanec,kostitsyn and Weber for Ryan. Again what's there to laugh about in this trade production in points is about even over the last couple of years, plekanec is still young and is signed for 4 more years, kostitsyn will be their decision to retain him he's 26 and your getting a pp specialist in Weber who is like 24 and signed for 2 more years, pk subban is a star, 22 years old and restricted agent who will most likely sign long term with them, while Getzlaf is also a star but is 5 years older and only has a year beyond this season signed through we're taking a bigger risk then they are. I don't know why others would suggest giving them a 1st round pick as well, no way in hell would I do that. maybe the 2nd rounder we got in the cammalleri trade I would throw in but other than that if they don't like it, they go to hell.

  11. Gotta tell you after reading the post of Lovetts Magnatone, of the proposed trade of Subban and Kostitsyn for Ryan sutter. Not only would we be raped but setback as well for another 3 years at the least. Yes I know Sutter is an excellent d-man but why in the hell would we make this trade when we have already a franchise d-man whose potential is through the roof, 5 years younger, and would be 3 million dollars cheaper for the next couple of years when resigned. I don't even want to talk about Kostitsyn because that just adds insult to injury by including him in this trade. If gauthier decides to stupidly even consider trading Subban he better be getting back a superstar Center something the team seriously lacks. So here is my proposed trade if god forbid we should trade subban. PK Subban, Thomas Plekanec, Andrei Kostitsyn, and Yannick Weber to Anaheim. For Ryan Getzlaf, Bobby Ryan, and a 3rd round pick. I think this would be the best deal for montreal by far. It may seem like a lot from our part, but i think not. Allthough he is a good number 2 center, I believe plekanec time with montreal has run its course, gauthier has finally realized we need to get bigger physical players (especially at center) and lets face it plekanec does not fit that bill in any way. And also i believe we have already have a number 2 center on our team in Lars Eller. Not going to lie throwing in Kostitsyn hurts me but we must put him in to make this deal actually work, anaheim gets a physical forward here who will give them 20 goals 20 assists a season. Weber is in this trade just to put the cherry on the cake, friendly cap hit at 800,000 for the next 2 years, is young and a powerplay asset. For Montreal they get their two star building blocks for the franchise in Getzlaf and Ryan, and not to mention much bigger and physical up front. So our lineup should look a little something like this Ryan/Getzlaf/Cole Pacioretty/Deharnais/Bourque Moen/Eller/Gionta Blunden/White/Darche with nokelainen the extra forward. Kind of scary isn't it. I have no doubt about it that if this trade scenario were presented to anaheim they wouldn't even hesitate to pull the trigger. Salary between these players is even at 10.5 million, so no problem on the money front, Anaheim loses its number 1 center but get a solid number 2 in plekanec (60 points a year average) along with their franchise d-man in Subban, a 20 to 25 goal scorer in kostitsyn and a future powerplay specialist in Weber. Any thoughts.
  12. According to Eklund from Hockeybuzz he just stated Roy coming to montreal may happen, I'm waiting for more to come out.
  13. I completely agree that JM should be fired, the man is simply not a winner, he is too much of a boring coach and doesnt seem to know when to make the neccesary ajustments when the team is slumping. Everybody is saying that their are few coaches out there who can lead this team to prominence. Guys forget Patrick Roy and Randy carlyle, their is one coach in my mind who can actually break through this fuking jinx of a stanley cup drought and that is Bob Hartley!!! The man is a winner plain and simple. He won the calder cup and had stanley cup, he took a team in the atlanta thrashers from the basement and actually made them rellevant in his time their, with 2 winning seasons, including a playoff appearance and the southeast division title. He is a proven winner and Gauthier better wake up soon enough and grab him before someone else does. I truly believe he is the one who can bring back the stanley cup to montreal where it belongs.
  14. Solid insurance addition for the backend
  15. Great signing by Gauthier allthough it was expected, it is a relief that this is done with. But have to point out that I am a bit disappointed with the ONE year he received, and even though gauthier got him at a bargain price of 2.5 million, this could possibly be the last year Gorges will be with the habs, considering all the effort and heart he put in into this team. Its a bit of an insult to find out that the reason why he got only a 1 year deal is because of his injury, gauthier the man is a heart and soul player and a flat out warrior. Just hope it doesn't cost us in the future.
