  1. So you're convinced he's washed up based on 1 bad playoff? Price looked burnt at the end of the 2014-15 season, the season he scored big at the awards. He had a bad few games to end the reg season and a so-so playoff. He did not look like the carey Price who was so dominant from games 1-75. So is it safe to assume he was washed up as well or on the decline? Even elite players have off periods. Prior to the Roy trade in 95, he looked horrible in the 94b playioffs, which lead to many media personalities and fans to suggest he was washed up. And that they were already thinking of trading him at
  2. Any other player we traded to acquire for Weber would've been amazing. My issues are with the ages of the players involved and the age of our first pairing post trade. I've said all along that in the short term, I think we'll be ok. It's 3-4 years down the road, when PK's entering his 30's and Weber is in his mid 30's, that we're going to see the negative aspect of the trade. I understand PK is a huge fan favorite and have said asince the trade, that i believe his absence in the short term, would be felt more in the community than on the ice. We now have Shea Weber and his 20 goals on thi
  3. Mt definitely had a hand in the collapse, but there was a lot of blame all over the organization. Where was patches leadership? Giving him some slack because even the most experienced captain would've had issues last season. But he shouldn't be giving teammates dirty looks on the ice, nor roll his eyes when a certain player is talking, as 24CH is filming in the room. patches definitely had issues with PK. Didn't buy his post trade comments. MB-Didn't do anything to help his coach. He brought in Scrivens, a tender who couldn't even cracked the worst team in the league line up. G Molson-Didn
  4. Can we add... You post another members post that needed to be recognized or that you feel other members need to read.
  5. people thought MT was stubborn... He has nothing on Roy. I grew up watching Roy, I idolized him. let's be honest, he stepped down because he didn't get his way in Colorado. He's a bit of a premadonna. It's his way or the highway, in this case he took the highway. I think with some experience under his belt he's more interesting to me as head coach of the habs. But even as a coach, he's high maintenance, and I say this with love.
  6. That's why high end talent like Johnny Toews sent out tweets thanking weber for leaving their division. One bad playoff doesn't make for a decline. If that was the case, Pleks would've been washed up 7 years ago.
  7. I think we're getting off topic here people.
  8. Mark my words, before the seasons out, Weber will make Brad "the pest" Marchand part of the Bell Centre advertising.
  9. Me too. And don't understand how MT haters aren't more excited about Muller. Blinded by rage? Regardless... Everyone including MT can see the writing on the wall. I was never happy about his hiring, but was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. I think he's been unfairly criticized in some circumstances. MT, it was obvious he wasn't PK's biggest supporter, but many coaches have players, even stars that they don't see eye to eye with. Dick Irvin and Richard often had issues. I always felt for the short term, MT was a decent choice, but only on a short term basis. We needed struct
  10. Sure, but all these teams didn't suffer the man games lost, we suffered this season. Oh, one did, the jets and they were at the bottom of the standings, like the habs. And let's be honest, when Sid goes down, Malkin usually steps it up in his place. We had no one to step it up in Carey's or Gallagher's place. Even with a full roster, we're usually bottom of the league in goal scored, where Pens are higher. Also, when they lost Letang and Fleury was playing horribly, they weren't anything special. Same goes for NYR, sure they lost king henrik, but didn't lose 2/3 of their defense with it.
  11. I don't think MT has much of a choice to let Muller work his magic. They didn't bring him in to be an observer.
  12. Has anyone else noticed a disturbing trend? When Subban was a hab, I read all these articles about how awesome Shea Weber was and how PK was over-rated. When Shea became a hab and Subban a pred, started reading all these articles about how Weber is over-rated and how Subban was under-rated now. can we all, in hab-land, say... Double Standard!!!!!
  13. Most teams need a healthy roster to stay competitive. Nashville did ok the year Rinne was injured, but that was only 1 significant injury. Lose your allstar tender and 2/3 of your blueline and most teams will struggle. Don't think that's something only MT has issues with.
  14. Uh again, we hired Kirk "I know how to work a PP" Muller.
  15. Nice guy, probably charges over $100/signature. But he has been pretty good at keeping close to his Cole Harbour and NS roots.
