  1. Martin Brodeur is where I’d put my bet.
  2. Wondering - are the reverse-retro jerseys in play this year?
  3. I’m ok with this. I said in a previous post, the Habs weakness wasn’t just that it was unproven centers but the ages of all of them. Suzuki is untouchable, Evans is affordable. Paquette is serviceable on the 4th line. The issue was KK as second line C and no one to insulate anyone else. we have a hole, but I’m not sure we didn’t have a hole even with KK - we had hope, but that’s it. If we can get a 30ish 2nd line C for 6m or less, we are actually better off for next season than with KK.
  4. No way - I don’t believe you use the picks to draft a center - trade for the 2C we need. Make it so. I’d rather lose a prospect than use the cap space poorly.
  5. My 2 cents. I love KK and I think he will be a 2C. But he isn’t now. Good for him to get paid, even if it’s overpayment - that’s not his fault or problem. but I’m a Habs fan first. i say let him go. Habs were already too inexperienced at C and to bring someone in meant someone needed to sit. Suzuki wasn’t going to move or be sat. Evans/Poehling/Paquette can handle 3rd/4th/depth C. (Admittedly hoping Evans is adequate this season as 3rd line C) the issue going into the season was 2nd line C anyways. KK was the one that needed to go. Suzuki, Evans, Poehling are all either valued (Suzuki) or affordable (Evans, Poehling). We needed a vet 2nd line player to take pressure off of Suzuki. So let KK walk and use the picks or prospects to go get a 2nd line C. The team may overlay a little in the trade, but it’s better than overpaying by 3 mil in the cap era for KK. sorry Canes - you can enjoy the consequences of the cap mess you just made for yourselves
  6. I feel there are 2 Drouins. If we get the good one, I actually could see him as our 2nd line C. When he was good for the Habs, he was skating, moving his feet, even in the defensive zone. (Bad Drouin is flat out useless, that is understood). KK can hone in his checking skills on the 3rd line with Suzuki/Drouin 1 and 2. I bet it’s an experiment we will see, especially with DD as HC - and I’m more optimistic than pessimistic in its success. (bookmark this to either praise me or shame me later!!!)
  7. Ya. Any trade for Eichel will include KK. The coach isn’t in love with Romanov so that makes sense. I’d be surprised if Drouin were in a deal and if he was, it’s for cap reasons so I’d think it would be more than just 1 1st. Maybe 2.
  8. Every pic I see lately of MB shows him as being a mess. I’ve had longer hair, so I understand either you look great or a disaster - and there is more maintenance with longer hair. but still - it really seems like his swag is gone - that maybe in some way last season and this offseason has been sucking the life out of him and that really, the playoff success was more of a last gasp of energy (ie that lucky red suit). I don’t know if it is that the media is only sharing his disheveled look or if he really never has it all together any more! I’d have thought he would look better when announcing the draft picks. regardless, to me, via the eye-test, he isn’t getting fired, but he is about to quit. And perhaps because I’m more aware given Drouin’s recent struggle, I do hope everything is ok personally for MB. has anyone else been thinking the same regarding the departure of MB’s polished, suave look that has clearly gone beyond covid hair.
  9. I know Evans is young, but I think he is going to take Danault’s spot THIS year. Danault benefited from Pleks example, Evans has had Danault’s. Evans is smart smart smart. There will be growing pains, but we’ve said goodbye to a defensive specialist, added an up and coming in Evans and used the money saved on offense in the form of Hoffman. Losing some of an area of strength (forward defensive responsibility) in order to strengthen an area of weakness (forward scoring).
  10. Good for him. And good for the Habs we aren’t paying him that coin. he is excellent at what he does, but he needs more offense to be worthy of that contract. im also glad he is in the west where Suzuki et al won’t need to deal with him unless it’s the finals!
  11. Louie Belpedio to Habs. 1 year for 750k according to TSN (TW contract)
  12. I wonder if MB saves the Weber money for a mid-season acquisition. Thinking we can be in the playoff discussion with this D (Savard replacing Weber) and then adding someone to get the Habs across the finish line into the playoffs where anything can happen.
  13. I love Armia on that 4th line and able to move up and down the line up when injuries or slumps hit … but he is a luxury at that price. I thot he was gone. that right side is so deep, something has to give - someone is moving out or playing in their off wing (Toffoli +). that said, I do think players like Armia are what’s needed in the post season so if the cap can be managed, he may be a luxury for bubble teams but a necessary cog in championship teams. we need another finisher and a more experienced C up front - so seems to me that a couple of forwards need to be traded or hope they can do the Kucherov.
  14. Here here! I’ll second that one! I ALWAYS appreciate their insight - they are rarely wrong but when they are, they totally own it. No one has a perfect crystal ball, but they seem correct more often than not … more often than most NHL GMs!
  15. Maybe Mailloux needs his own thread. As long as things don’t get ugly between posters, the conversation has value. But that way, those who have said their piece can go back to read more about it if and when they want to.
