  1. Can we add... You post another members post that needed to be recognized or that you feel other members need to read.
  2. I think we're getting off topic here people.
  3. Mark my words, before the seasons out, Weber will make Brad "the pest" Marchand part of the Bell Centre advertising.
  4. 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!!!!!
  5. Nice guy, probably charges over $100/signature. But he has been pretty good at keeping close to his Cole Harbour and NS roots.
  6. And also addicted to opiates, for pain management.
  7. Probably leads back to FIFA. They're all in it together, aren't they?
  8. No, doubt he's going anywhere. We have to push his strengths if we want a hope of moving him. Get him on the 3rd line & have play wing. He is a decent passer, has decent vision and with the exception of last season, has shown to be durable despite his small size. And last years injury, had nothing to do with his small stature. So, a team looking to reach the cap floor, who looking for a pint size-poor mans Martin St Louis, might be interested. We can always tell the rangers that, despite his name, he was born in the states. They love over-payed american born players.
  9. welcome Max. A little heads up though, if you're looking to learn from experts, maybe you should check out another forum. Just kidding, a lot of us think as ourselves as experts. It is good community here. If you want to talk habs hockey or just hockey, we have many passionate Habs and hockey fans.
  10. I guess this is the perfect thread for the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic games. What a joke it has become. Really feel bad for the athletes.
  11. Meh, he wants to give MB all the chances, but believe Molson has MB on a very short leash. I doubt MB will be here much longer. Like i said in other posts, with owning the habs and his family name, there's a lot of pressure on him. He doesn't want to be the only molson owner to not win a cup.
  12. Quebec city will try to land as many francophone players. The rangers are well known for offering american born players outrageous contracts. The regular fan doesn't care, just look at the whole subban thing. If the regular fan cared that their players were white and French, they would've packed PK's bags for them. Just look at the fan favorites in the last 10 years, Kovy, Gally, Chuck, Price, Marky, Halak, etc... It's the media, with political pushing that stir the pot, that is in my opinion.
  13. Now I know why Coach offered me the mod position, no one wants to start the new threads, hahahaha. Just kidding. I'll start the injury thread.
  14. People like the blue collar players. They're closer to your every day joe. The elites, are just that, elites. Meaning there aren't very many of them, most people are drawn to blue collar players because they made it on grit and determination. Not everyone is blessed with a high skillset, but everyone has it in them to give it their 100% and guys like Shaw remind us of this.
  15. Can we just say and post how we all feel? Instead of the Michel Therrien and staff thread, call it the Kirk Muller and staff thread? We have zero proof that the call is coming from MT. Could be MB who wants us to play a Francophone player, since he's the only one on the team. I've actually mentioned several times about playing on wing.
  16. Great to hear from you too coach, glad to be back. I'm truly honoured, but for now, my family needs me. maybe when they're a bit older, I'll revisit the mod position. Thanks for the kid words, missed you all as well. For now, just enjoying posting and reading the odd post. When the kids start school, I'll have more time to give and we can discuss it then. It really is nice to be back posting.
  17. Sadly, i don't see DD going anywhere. It would help to silence certain media personalities who seem to think fans want Francophone players. Replace DD with another local, Francophone, boy. Plus we'll be paying a 3rd liner, like a 3rd liner.
  18. Recently retire Eugene Monroe is pushing to have Cannbis use accepted for NFL players. As it stands, NFL has a zero tolerance policy on Cannabis, but opiate use is accepted and even encourage, for managing pain. Let's break this down, one hand a plant (which NFLers most smoke anyways) is not accepted, but opiates, which are known to have severe physical addiction associated with it, is accepted and again, encouraged. Problem is, most of these players don't stop taking pills once their careers are over, so they basically enter their retirement, as junkies and still addicted to opiates, go figure. Here is the full story bellow. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2016/may/17/nfl-medical-marijuana-eugene-monroe-baltimore-ravens
  19. Since I'm an old member who has returned, I'll re-introduce myself. My name is FirstStar. Passionate hockey and habs fan. I use to be part of the moderating team. Then I had my first child and priorities took over. I also had eye issues that didn't allow me to enjoy the internet. I even had to give up reading novels and PS4. ​ That's all behind me now and I'm glad to be talking hockey with other passionate hab fans. Also playing NHL 16 and soon NHL 17, again.
  20. Thanks coach, sadly couldn't log in to get the info. Thankfully NHL.com sent me an email to explain issues with logins. Hopefully members check the email address associated with their NHL.com accounts.
  21. He's grittier, which is something MT likes. Sometimes felt he'd take grit over skill on some occasions. He loved DLR a few seasons back and DLR is NOT known for offense. He has a good defensive game, plays with some grit, uses his big frame well, but isn't an offensive threat. rad on the other hand, think he'll be fine. Patch who has a decent 2 way game, with the exception of last season, has done well within MT's system. Even in a lost season, Patch still netted 30 goals. Not worried about rad. Think he may be the FA signing of the off season.
  22. Good point, but PK also produced offensively, something that isn't Weber's strong suit. Weber is a safer player, so maybe with weber we won't lead the league in turnovers. Although weber isn't known for his offense, with the man advantage he's at the top of the list for defenders (goals). part of that has to do with his cannon of a shot, the other, he has the gift of getting his shots through. Don't know if that has to do with the former (hard shot), but his shot often makes it through. I don't know how Alexi Emelin will help our offense, he does contribute a few goals and assists over a season. I like how our PP blueline looks. Markov-Weber Bo-Petry Can always switch it up if need be. Put Bo with Weber and Petry with marky. With chuck's break out late last season and the addition of rad, and let's not forget Muller, we should do better with the man advantage.
  23. I hoped they'd be gone, but wasn't expecting it. 4 mil/season is a lot for a stay at home defensive dman.
  24. I don't think rad will have any issues in the NHL. He's a proven scorer, scored more goals than Kovalchuk in the KHL last season. I don't think anyone would have to think if Kovalchuk would have issues here. Plus,. Rad is a little younger than kovalchuk.
