  1. Middle school humor meant for small minds. Maybe you ought to write fart jokes on your own time instead of burping up your daily dose of baloney on here? "Duhhhh...faith in Bergevin...duhhh...Carey Price yo...duhhh Shea Weber's ma boy...duhhh." Did I come close to what you do on here, moron?
  2. I don't know how you argue someone is a PPG player when he's only gotten a PPG four years out of eight, and not come close in the last two years? I guess Zetterberg is a PPG player because he has 904 points in exaclty 1000 games. Spezza, too. 862/912. Hey, with that logic, let's just give the 8.5 in cap space to Jagr!
  3. "Classically" exaggerated? I didn't know you wrote in Latin or Attic Greek. I can't even read to the bottom of this. Time to refresh the ignore list...
  4. 2009-2010 82 games/54 points 2010-2011 79/67 2011-2012 82/81 2012-2013 48/47 2013-2014 59/66 2014-2015 82/86 2015-2016 78/70 2016-2017 77/66 I said: "Tavares had four or five years out of (8?) that are PPG." That is exactly correct. If you based your claim on career points instead a season by season tally you're using the wrong methodology. Since you know, we're talking about how many seasons he was PPG.
  5. Where Are They Now? 2011-2012 Edition Claude Giroux-94 Jason Spezza-84 Ilya Kovalchuck-83 Henrik Sedin-81 Patrik Elias-78 Ray Whitney-77 Maria Gaborik-76 2012-2013 Edition Martin St. Louis-60 points Eric Staal-53 Mike Ribeiro-49 Pavel Datsyuk-49 Claude Giorux-48 Hank Zetterberg-48 Tavares-47 Andrew Ladd-46 Henrik Sedin-45 The list gets better as the years go on, but you get my point. I don't remember half of these players being dominant. Four or five years out on a Tavares deal could get really stinky. "His whole career" is classic Link67 exaggeration. Tavares had four or five years out of (8?) that are PPG. Don't get me wrong, I've seen him take over games. But the time to sell the store was 2014.
  6. Fair enough. He wants to stay, so he's not a winner!
  7. We're going to be like Maple Leafs fans in a few years. I'll never forget in 2014, the Laffs were playing the Panthers after the Olympics. They showed a clip of the Canadian players skating their after winning the gold, and many Leafs fans stood up and clapped and yelled and whooped it up for a proxy victory. The Laffs burped up a 3-0 lead in the 3rd and fans brought paper bags to wear over their heads. I can't even remember if the Leafs had any players on that team? But any win is a win. I suppose if Tavares got traded here, we could root for Tavares to be the best center like we do with Price, or the Sens with Karlsson, or the Leafs with Matthews.
  8. What does Tavares have to show for his entire career? Carrying the Islanders on his back in the first round vs the Florida Panthers? Or, like Evander Kane, Keith Yandle, and the other rumor mill stalwarts, is he supposed to be as good as Crosby and McDavid just because he's available? I can picture a day...far off into the future on a wooded lake in a forgotten town around July...Carey, Shea, and Tavares talking about the time of their lives at the cabin...those two tournaments in the Olympics on a heavily favored team that went all the way. Oh, the memories!
  9. What happened to him? Was he another Conor Crisp?
  10. Tavares would go well with the rest of the Habs that can only get it done with a red maple leaf on their chests. He's always been below the top-tier guys like Crosby, Jumbo Joke, McDavid. I think he's PPG for the next couple years and then slides. Pass.
  11. Plus it's just the opinion of one coaching staff and there are three HOFers in front of Giroux on Team Canada.
  12. He's talking about the number of injuries he had last year. Injuries that caused him to miss game 7. He talked about it in many interviews he gave after the year, including a hand injury history that sounds degenerative. Get Bergevin's wang out of your mouth, you meathead.
  13. Great signing. Streit didn't play any games in the Cup final, and neither will the 2017-2018 Canadiens.
  14. What the hell does Team Canada have to do with anything?!
  15. He really tuned up Mike Blunden on the video linked in the HI/O writeup.
  16. Me too! If they don't, the lease is up around 2025. By then, the arena will need significant upgrades. There's a lot of conflict down here between the beach lobby and the Panthers lobby on the Broward County board. They've been subsidizing the Panthers with some of the tourism taxes, and the beach people are arguing they deserve more. I agree with them, if I'm being objective. The team did well last year and in the 2nd half of the season beforehand. People down here don't show up to bad teams. I haven't been to a Marlins game since I moved five years ago.
  17. I would too, but both of them are bandaid boys. Barkov is good to miss 20 games every year. He's already had knee problems and concussions. What a great player, though.
  18. ...and they lost him to make sure Vegas took Reilly Smith. It's looking like they have an internal cap, per Frank Seravelli. They made a lot of stupid moves last summer, and then fired Gallant over a presumed conflict of interest with the computer boys. Bolland's Deal/Lawson Crouse for Johnny Capspace Rocco Grimaldi for Reto Berra Gudbranson for Jared McCann They've thrown away quality young depth and prospects like Brandon Pirri, Quinten Howden, Logan Shaw, Kyle Rau, and Connor Brickley. When you add it up, they've swapped out 7 or 8 pieces and lost on every piece. These are clearcut losses. They ended 2015-2016 as a solid playoff team that greatly overachieved, but had a great young corp that was on it's way up. Now they have an empty cupboard and a bubble team.
  19. Four hypothetical situations (on the offense alone) to improve a team that bowed out in the first round. The Panthers are in the same boat with their offense. They have three players, and two that are injury prone, (Barkov, Huberdeau, Trochek) that they need 60-70 points from, or it's hard to see how they make the playoffs. Then Tallon went full-MB with a cotillion dance of KHLers, rookies, and discount UFAs to color in the lines.
  20. Doubt it has anything to do with the environment. If it were the American climate mullahs ordering the increase, the cost would be 5k, and the Habs would get a billion dollar subsidy for their good intentions. The truth is that paper tickets are easier to scalp and sell on third-party ticket websites like StubHub. The Panthers started to release their season tickets through an app for this reason.
  21. What I mean is that we're in for another season of dump and chase, counter attack off the trap, and blow-the-zone footraces. Nobody can carry the play. This always works out well until the time of year when teams make game plans to shut down an offense...at which point the Habs offense looks about as dangerous as a tufted titmouse. Jeff Petry is a 25 point guy with great vision, especially on the powerplay. He's never been a catalyst for an offense, and I wouldn't expect him to become the 40-50 point, 25 minute a night dman every good team needs. Think: Pittsburgh-Letang Chicago-Keith San Jose-Burns Ottawa-Karlsson Nashville-Whole top-4 St. Louis-Pietrangelo Tampa Bay-Hedman Columbus-Werenski We get 40 points and the minutes out of Weber, but he gets more than half his points on the powerplay. This is where I get concerned about Claude. The moves of the last deadline gave me more than a whiff of "zombie Bruin-ism." If they're trying to rebuild a 2011 Boston, we're in for some terrible hockey.
  22. I don't know which player is supposed to move the puck? They have guys like Weber and Alzner that make a good first pass, but to whom? Phillip Danault?
