  1. Past hour
  2. ... and selective depending on the team being affected IMHO.
  3. I wouldn't doubt this may be what happens. IMO Peca may be the closest thing in terms of speed that compares to Byron. And he can play both wing and center apparently, which could be a plus in his favor. It also depends on which team they are facing when it comes to dressing Deslauriers... so regarding Ted's wanting to see both Peca and Hudon playing, it would be a long-shot. I still think Hudon can be a player if truly given a chance in the right circumstance... and if I'm not wrong he has played some center in the past I believe.
  4. With back-to-back games coming up, perhaps we will see Hudon AND Peca. Not that I am concerned. Hudon and Peca are pretty meaningless players in the grand scheme of Montreal' success or failure. Sure, call up Jake Evans and give him a game instead!
  5. I thought Byron would receive 1 game. 3 games was... ahem... unexpected. The NHL's consistency in handing out suspensions is brutal.
  6. Looked like a moose attack to me from the start so
  7. Thursday, January 17th STL @ BOS NJD @ NYI CHI @ NYR TOR @ TBL
  8. Unfortunately,,, the Sabre score didn't hold up.
  9. Just came across an interesting article suggesting we try and trade for Fowler of the Ducks here is the link thought?
  10. Today
  11. St Louis vs Boston: Boston New Jersey vs NY Islanders: Isalnders Chicago vs NY Rangers: Rangers Toronto vs Tampa Bay: Tampa Bay
  12. Corrwrong
  13. I dont think there's any possibility MB trades Gallagher. Maybe Drouin. Maybe Tatar, but thats probably it from our top 9 to be honest. (maybe shaw if you count him as a top 9 player on this squad) I think MB believes he's building the core just how he wants it.
  14. ^^^^^^ Just shows to go ya, there is no rule book.
  15. Bruins lose to the Flyers tonight. Sabres down by 1 after 1
  16. I just didn't realize they were that close so it doesn't matter then lol
  17. We all know Peca will slot in next game with Byron out. For whatever reason, Hudon is at the bottom of the pecking order with CJ. The only question remaining is does he slot in the top 9 or does he move up Agostino? It won't be Chaput because he plays center and even CJ is not stupid enough to move up Dlo.
  18. I have to disagree with that . Matt Duchene same draft spot number 3, probably on one of the worst teams in the league 42 point 37 games, Barkov 44 points in 45 games Florida. Ryan O'Reilly 45 and 45... and these players are much much much better defensively Not every team has great players and I agree they help pad points for some players. But every team has some really good players. I am not even sure Galchenyk is a B player offensively he looks like he could be! BUT over 300 minutes this season points per 60 minutes is 1.41..that means there are 200 plus forwards providing more pts per 60 minutes 5 on 5 this season not because he is on a bad team. Ottawa has 9 forwards with more points per 60 minutes. NJ 6 forwards with more Florida 6 forwards with more Galchenyk CORSI +- is minus 52, there are over 270 forwards with a better corsi plus minus. Its the overall package. I stand by what I said before he needs 80 just to have good value. He is lucky to get 55 points and you add his defensive horror show well..
  19. I didn't say I wanted him to I said that's likely what he will try to do
  20. Why would we do that? Petry is probably a top 30 D man in the league. Muzzin is nowhere close to being as good as Petry.
  21. With the lottery, there's no guarantee about Hughes anyways, but I think obtaining a 1st rounder is about more than just Hughes. Right now, we're looking at our own pick being in the 15-20 range, which doesn't help that much. But if we could theoretically acquire a 1st rounder in the top 6-8 then it opens up a bunch of possibilities... there's forward Kaapo Kakko who played for the Gold-medal winning Finnish team at the World juniors. There are two potential 1st-pairing D men in Philip Broberg and Bowen Byram, which is probably more of a need in terms of organizational depth right now. There are two big playmaking centers in Dylan Cozens and Kirby Dach. There's Russian star Vasili Podkolzin... there are options beyond Hughes. If I knew we would end up with our choice of Broberg or Byram as the Oilers' pick, then I would 100% deal Drouin to make that happen. But I wouldn't deal Drouin for a 20% chance of that happening and a risk that the Oilers make the playoffs and leave us with another mid-late 1st rounder with a 40% chance at making the NHL.
  22. My thought was MB would send Petry to L.A. for Muzzin in one of his infamous 1 for 1 deals.
  23. I think it's a toss-up. Chaput is stronger, but Peca is a better skater. If you look at face-offs, Chaput is at 51% for the year and Peca's at 49% but they're not that far off of each other. Looking at it another way, Chaput has won 6 more faceoffs than he has lost. Peca has lost 4 more than he has won. One game either way could swing those numbers in Peca's favor pretty quickly. Peca also won 57% of his draws with Tampa last year, which is an outstanding number, so I'm not overly concerned about his ability there.
  24. I hate Lucic too and especially with that contract but we may as well face it we are not getting Hughes unless you can wrangle the Sens pick from the Avs
  25. I'd rather trade Drouin over Gallagher (I don't like Drouin). I also don't have much hope in Puljujarvi. But I do agree that we should really try to trade with Edmonton, and trading for the dmen you mentioned just isn't worth it
  26. I wouldn't be willing to take Lucic back. I'd do Tatar for Lucic and the 1st, but I hate Lucic's contract, its a real albatross for far too long Don't know much about upcoming prospects, but I see he's ranked in the mid teens, could be interesting! But I'm hoping for Hughes!
