  1. The NHL is a bizarre league....Empty seats for a playoff game in Florida, yet no playoff hockey for Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Edmonton. Where it matters most. I actually forgot about the Devils/Panthers series. Does anyone even care? If you do, you should get out of your basement.

  2. Well folks, it done.

    Thanks to everyone who participated in the forum during this bleak season. I learned much. I laughed. I cried. I enjoyed the posts.

    I look forward to our busy off season and reading everyones insights and opinions.

    Classy comments brobin. I agree. And Commandant was right in the end, they sucked enough for what looks like a good draft selection. I felt they'd finish a little higher. Have a good summer everyone!
  3. Hab29, I'm in no way endorsing Pierre McGuire for the GM job. I actually don't have much of an opinion. But if he got the job, you won't find me hanging from the shower curtain rod. Sure he talks, but that's what he's paid to do, and he certainly moved up the ranks quickly. He did the same in coaching, reaching the NHL in his early 30's. As for stories about Hartford? That was along time ago. If he made a mistake, he might have learned from it. Whoever get's the job, dump Gomez and Kaberle, and I'm holding a parade for the guy.

  4. I don't know what to think about McGuire as GM. But I believe if he got the job, he would tone everything down. I also believe he would have shopped Halak more, and not make the desperate and dumb Kaberle trade. He also seems to be big on how to treat people. Martin had to go, but it would have been handled differently. Of course, we'll never really know, but that's the vibe I get.

  5. Will he stay? None of us know. I hope he does. I'm of the belief that he's great, a building block, as the team goes forward. What does he expect to be paid? If he turns down a 6 million dollar offer, and signs elsewhere, it'll suck. But if that were to happen it would certainly free up a lot of money. Halak makes 3.75 million, Jimmy Howard even less. Different teams, and circumstances, but they're both preparing for long playoff runs.

  6. I was at the game. First time I see Habs in enemy territory. Although, i swear it was 50-50, Habs and Sens fans. Nice arena. Brutal game, as we're a one line team. Whenever I see a game in person, I notice the play of defensemen more than anything else. I know it's obvious, but we can never trade PK Subban. The guy is a rock. He killed and entire penalty. The'd change, but he'd stay on the ice. Great to watch him conserve energy, at any chance he can. The sky's the limit with him. Gorges blocked everything in sight. Carey Price is fantastic. Rene Bourque is beyond useless. Staubitz and Blunden bring more to the team in terms of effort, and effect on the game. I have to give props to Erik Karlsson and Chris Philips. They play opposite styles, but both are a treat to watch. We earned another useless point, but we're so bad, tough to watch.

  7. This must be one of the worst defenses ever iced :/

    Georges has been getting tired, Markov hasn't played in 2 years, Camps and Weber have been brutal and StD is up from the AHL...

    At least PK has picked up his play :/

    Poor Price....

    When I quickly read your post, I thought you said Camps and Weber have been as brutal as std's...
  8. I've always said i agree with all that. I just dont think the team is good enough to do the kind of damage you think they will. Still a 1 line club without Gionta. Still not enough D yet.

    If you're right, we all win. I'm just concerned we'll creep up the standings.
  9. I've been in several heated debates on this site. The players and coaches would never tank. I've said this for several months now. And it's continuing. Drive your car to Brossard, and wait outside the practice facility. Tell the players to ease up a bit, you've got fantasies of 18 year old Russians. They'll laugh at you. And RC? He's fighting to get another gig next year. And Gauthier? Does anyone think he's likely to tell RC to sit the vets, and play the 4th liners?

  10. So we pick up another point we don't need.

    I guess some people will be happy with a few wins, a 9th pick, and no playoffs. I am watching them squander the only chance we have had at a top 3 pick in my lifetime. (the Crosby lottery excepted).

    What are you talking about? Nobody seems happy about this useless point.
  11. Wow so he was untradeable really.

    Too bad.

    I wonder if he plays again this year and if the Habs have any interest in signing him

    If he's still injured this summer, and Gauthier is in charge, expect a raise in pay for Moen.
