    The shock is that after this tweet we expected 5.5M/year and then its below 4. 👍

    Arpon's tweet was a reaction to the contracts other defensemen had been reported to be getting. Right-handed defensemen are getting paiiiiiiiiiiiid today.

    I guess testing was the wrong word. I figured he'd be gone. His comments about remaining a Canadien seemed ambiguous. I took that as some level of dissatisfaction with the team.

    A lot of Habs reporters mentioned that Armia loves Montreal and he would ideally be staying, but he was also probably very aware this was his only year to really cash out. 


    I hoped he would be back for $3 mill or less, but someone was gonna be dumb and give him a contract that started with a 4.

    How long before Danault’s agent calls Bergevin asking if the 6x$5m is still on the table?  I highly doubt he gets an offer like that on the open market.  

    I'd bet the Habs move on to someone else before that call comes in.

    Funny thing about Wideman, he had two very productive seasons stats-wise and then completely dropped off the map. Did the “scandal” (really a non-scandal IMHO) sour teams on him, or did he just benefit from huge ice time on an atrocious Ottawa team? 


    Anyhow, at age 31 I doubt we’ll see a return to 46-point production. I’m sure MB is not silly enough to see him as a heavy-duty fix for the top-6. 

    He was the one that took the fall from that incident, even though some of the others had said the worst things. 


    From an article about him in The Athletic:

    "wherever Wideman went, the Uber incident followed. Promising opportunities evaporated. Was he a disposable player in his late 20s whose time had run out? Or had he been blackballed by one regrettable misstep? There were lots of nights laying in hotel beds in minor league cities when he’d look up at the ceiling and ponder that question.

    Wideman still doesn’t know the answer, but he’s not letting that stop him from chasing his NHL dream a second time. "

    Timmins' end of draft presser.



    Really big on Joshua Roy. Habs are excited to help him develop his tools to be an NHLer. They think his big issue is just conditioning.

    On Joe Vrebetic: "Big goalie on a bad team."

    The success of Harvey-Pinard led to the decision to draft Xavier Simoneau.

    Riley Kidney: Slow start, really stepped up in the playoffs. 200 ft game. Young player they think will mature nicely.

    Long (long long) awkward pause when asked if why Logan Mailloux didn't think he should be drafted did Timmins think the opposite.
