  1. Yes that is the state of the habs. A little broken but hopefully ready to go by the start of season. Where ya find the pick or was it by you?
  2. Man canadiens27, what is your love fest with the dems and all the CNN media? Turning a blind eye to the lefts shortcomings is no better than what you see going on on the right. It's actually hilarious looking at how few news stories have ever been shared between CNN and fox, they both hammer away to death on stories that make the other side look bad while completely ignoring or downplaying the stuff happening that makes their side look bad. It's just a big stupid game really and I feel a little sorry for people that can't accept that their side ain't perfect. Look at all the gun violence and cop hating going on. Church burnings in Canada. People getting arrested and released just to make more victims again. There's more bad out there than the orange buffoon and you seem obsessed! Not an attack on you, just an observation based on your political posts.
  3. I'd agree with you with nearly all the aging vets the habs have taken in and played in place of youngsters except this one instance with perry. At worst we could have waived or traded him if the time came to do it. This ain't like romanov being benched in favor of the guys that replaced him (and all the prospects over the years that struggled to stay with the big league team), perry was still really useful and didn't make a peep during the times his minutes and games were being managed. He played his way into the lineup like everyone should and was cheap. And it doesn't change the fact that the young guys will continue to be led with a short leash. Always lots of bargain bin stuff available.
  4. Total miss by gm. One of the best value on the team last season, im sure we had a chance to match a 2nd year and said nope.
  5. Ya both those wouldn't be bad. At least subban can skate with the puck. Be nice to know how many players have montreal on their list of places they'd not like to play.
  6. Hamilton to NJ? Uuggh, crap why can't we get the big ones done?
  7. Yeah I knew none of mine were removed. I just figured since your warning was given soon after one of my longer posts that there may have been some replys to me that were a little personal.
  8. I think that the way society and the media is run these days that he would have not had any worse treatment if he were a poor person of color. There's no way the nhl would have went further with the current political climate, maybe 20 years ago.
  9. Ha, do white straight Christian males have a monopoly on bias and hatred or something? Bias, hatred, whatever-ism are human traits that is and always will be a part of the human mind. Just look around the world and you'll find it everywhere! Going to the other extreme wont stomp it out because you can't control how people think, you can only persuade with talk and action. Donald trump is an idiot but biden ain't any better! They're both touchy feely creepy old men. Talk about off topic, but I had to reply.
  10. One thing that's good is we can all have a discussion and debate about stuff, disagreements and all, and not have it spiral into anger and hatred. I know the mods or admin had some work to do in this thread (wouldn't doubt if something was directed at me, would almost like to know for a laugh) but the vast majority of talk on this forum is really great. I like hearing others opinions on things, helps with figuring out my stance on a subject. There really arn't many places online (or in real life for that matter) that you can have civilized debate on contentious issues anymore so thanks everyone for that!
  11. This, and I feel the nature of the crime doesn't warrant the overreaction that seems to be in vogue for news sites and commentators now. It's like they're talking about a roving sexual predator. If this was any kind of assault or worse I'd totally be on board with him getting railroaded. The fact that he's been convicted of a crime and getting the negative treatment he mostly deserves shows how far we've come as society in the past 20 or even 10 years. I never heard of anything like this when I played minor hockey but it wouldn't have surprised me back then (mid/late 90s). It would never had made it to the cops though, nevermind the local news. About comparisons, they don't excuse the offense but it does let us get a feel as to how bad something is. He didn't share the picture with the whole world or try to sell it or do anything even worse. And as already said, he's paid for it and will continue to pay dearly for a long time. I do feel that it's a gamble hockey wise in that he may be damaged goods now. Not saying he's a victim at all but he's gonna be dragging this around for a while. Its also obviously a gamble in hoping the damage done to the brand is minimal while hoping the news cycles on to something else. Also I wonder if people think that the teams that didn't even interview him did so from some moral high ground? They felt they had more to lose than gain, and if anything felt that in staying away they gained the optics of good morality. They felt they would have taken on the damage that Mailloux has done to himself if they gave him any of their time (and obviously the habs have at this point). Who knows, in the end this may have been a terrible business move but maybe not. And finally I know there's a victim in all this. She was humiliated, had her privacy breached, trust taken advantage of, and used for a quick ego boost by an immature arrogant a-hole. Said a-hole was a minor at the time and that's suppose to be taken into account. I know our justice system does, I'd imagine swedens does too. I feel and hope that she will 100% recover from this. Let's also hope that this now young man can better himself as both a hockey player and a person because for better or worse he's a habs prospect now!
  12. The kid says himself that he apologized to her and her family and is going through councilling and was convicted of his crime. I think Marc has made worse moves than this. Lots of people acting like this was sexual assault, calling it a sex crime. There are degrees of wrong ya know! From the habs side they should have waited till next round if they really wanted to get him.
  13. I understand that what the kid did is really wrong but so many people are reacting as if it was the sex act itself that was non consensual. Everything these days seems to be taken to one extreme or another with no rational middle ground. One person even tweeted that "this is the proof that cancel culture doesn't exist"... people are crazy. Gutsy move but may pan out and it sounds like he still may have went in second round to someone else.
  14. How good is bean? Sounds like a good deal for a second rounder although I don't know much about him other than the tsn bio lol. Much better than the other trades going on anyways
  15. I wouldn't mind if he was kept in the organization after his playing days are over. Thats a slew of injuries to get over at his age.
  16. I wonder how long a brand new team can suck before it gets tough to fill seats or move merchandise. Surely the novelty will wear off at some point if they're bottom feeders. Would also like to know just how much of a hockey market it is in Washington state.
  17. I think if there wasn't a chance of getting knee surgery price would have had more of a chance of getting picked. I'd imagine the choice was something that was thought about pretty hard.
  18. Man, I would have liked to see him make it here. So many young d go elsewhere over the years
  19. Kinda hoping he would have as much as I like price. That 10.5 would have been so useful
  20. According to tsn price did not get selected!
  21. Also I really thought drouins situation would have been cleared up soon after playoffs with him waiting till then so it wouldn't be a distraction for the team, but before the draft. We've been getting info on prices and Webers injuries. There's a ton of uncertainty right now with this team, really hard to figure what's going to happen
  22. Gut feeling it's gonna be price. Each choice definitely has its pros and cons and it makes a lot of sense for them to both pick price or pass. I love price but I think it's time to move on and fill out rest of team with all that possible cap space! This strange year just won't end!
  23. As per TSN The St. Louis Blues are exposing star forward Vladimir Tarasenko in the upcoming Seattle Kraken expansion draft, according to multiple reports
  24. God, what a joke. Comparing trump and his fans to Hitler and his SA is laughable. America today and Germany back then are two different worlds. The SA were a trained militia style group with leadership and organization that were only allowed to exist in the first place because Germany was in such chaos in the years following defeat in the great war. There were armed divisions of many of the different political groups back then. What you had in the states was a march on the capitol by a bunch of disorganized trump fanboys and extremists mixed in. No way in hell is there anywhere in the west that's broken to the point of allowing anything close to the nazis rise again. That's the standard of today I guess, exaggerated claims by the media and their loyal followers eating it all up and spewing it back out.
  25. Man, as much as trump is a lying idiot Joe ain't any better. They are both assholes, just in different ways. It's funny to see the continuing obsession with trump when he hasn't been president for how many months now? There's plenty to talk about with the biden administration, you know the one that's in power right now. The last two american elections have got to be some of the worst in American history for choices to vote for. I remember when trump stopped being as available to the media as he had been and CNN and others were all over him. Now the only time you here anything about the total lack of un-vetted questions for Joe is from fox News. He can't handle on the spot questions at all, and rarely ever gives answers to any hard questions. I've never been a trump fan. I dont think I need to list all his shortcomings as a leader or even a human being as they are self evident if you just watch and listen. I implore any biden lovers to watch old Joe with the same kind of scrutiny. He's a bumbling moron who just plays whatever side he can to be in power. Look at his history of the kind of laws he's backed. He was all for the tough on crime, war on drugs, and three strike laws that helped the u.s.a get to where it has with the largest prison population in the world. I have no problem with locking up violent criminals and predators for a long time but there has been a ton of people (especially blacks) put in jail for drug offenses. He also worked closely and was friends with pro segregationist Strom thurmond. I dont trust or hold any stock in any politician. Most are power and money hungry jerks that just want to put their mark on a society and will do and say anything to get the chance to do so. Trump let right wing extremists off the hook, biden does the exact same thing with far left wing nuts (they do exist, just watch the kind of shit that has been allowed to happen on the west coast in Seattle and Portland). With the dems in power now the USA has to watch for the further left of the party and the ties they have with certain communist leaders in the world like in Venezuela and Cuba. We need good solid leadership in all the western world that is based on reason, facts, and reality. Sorry about jumping around in this rant, I just feel like we're in the beginning of something bad in Canada and the USA. This hard swing between left and right is not healthy, I feel that it's actually getting dangerous. Now it's all slogans, ideology, a dismissal of different point of views and really not much good honest debate. I believe that most of us are still rational people but I've seen enough of the people around me swing hard one way or the other to cause real concern. “It doesn’t matter whether or not they’re the victims of society,” Mr. Biden said in 1993, adding, “I don’t want to ask, ‘What made them do this?’ They must be taken off the street.”
