  1. i agree its a shame we keep signing vets in front of all the great young talent we have this kid could end up id say a "star" on the leafs then switch between second line compliment player or a scoring third line player your choice.

    Ben would be a better option for center with the Leafs than some they have, Kaberle and Kadri are the only players I would take in trade. The leafs can sure use some offense so maybe there are a couple of our prospects for one of them.

  2. Benoit Pouliot was playing a good solid hockey game tonight, I wish I could say the same for AK. I think that if AK doesn't act like he cares the Habs could go for another prospect of Nashville Zach Budish and send AK to join SK. Zach Budish and a second round pick for 2011 draft for Andrei Kostitsyn, this would be a good trade for everybody involved.Pouliot looks good and ready to go.

  3. Fair enough. But all his injury trouble has slowed his development and maybe made him more tentative on the ice? Wouldn't be surprised to see someone pick him up off waivers.

    If he doesn't get claimed in all likelihood he will be packaged and dealt to give the Habs room for other prospects coming out of college and so forth.

  4. Well I know Brian Burke would be interested in trading but what can he trade, Nazem Kadri, or Thomas Kaberle now either of these guys would catch my attention and having Kaberle would strengthen our defence immensely. Kadri on the other hand could be a great player if he gains another 20 lbs of muscle.Anyways there is always Nashville with Zach Budish hulking big center we need.Minnesota has Colton Gillies big tough power forward, if we stand to lose a prospect let's find a trade and stockpile draft picks or get more prospects.Pierre Gauthier hasn't been sitting on his hands so look for some of these moves this year.

  5. This should be Pouliot's breakout season, everything has rolled his way he has the chance to be one of the top six. He gained the muscle the Habs asked him to gain and appears to be in good shape like mid-season form.I am in Benoit's corner for now and I'm sure he won't disappoint me.


    MONTREAL --The recipient of the Jean Béliveau trophy for the 2009-10 season will be honored during a ceremony prior to the game between the Florida Panthers and the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre tonight. For the occasion, Canadiens legend and Hall-of-Famer Jean Béliveau will be presenting the award to forward Maxim Lapierre for his charitable endeavors and involvement in the community.

    The selection committee, comprised of members of the Board of directors of the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation, evaluated the candidates according to the effort, enthusiasm, implication and time invested in both collective and personal initiatives. Each nominee was also evaluated on his commitment, leadership and financial assistance to the causes close to his heart.

    Maxim’s efforts in the community are particularly felt with the youth in need throughout the province of Quebec. Ever since he joined the NHL, Maxim has been adamant when it comes to supporting charitable organizations with a generous heart. Maxim responds in spontaneity whenever touched by an opportunity to partner with community groups and individuals in need. His motivation comes from the opportunity to be a positive role model for Quebec’s youth. He is motivated to give back to the community and strives to make a difference.

    His contribution comes in part from his annual golf tournament which benefits the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation. In 2010, the 2nd edition of the Maxim Lapierre Tournament raised $50,000.

    For the past two seasons, Maxim has been the spokesperson for the Canadiens game day lottery lending his name to the popular initiative in support of the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation. This year, Maxim accepted to be the spokesperson for the Riverside School Board campaign against bullying and violence at school and on the school bus.

    The Jean Béliveau trophy is awarded annually to the Canadiens player who best exemplifies leadership qualities in the community. In honor of Jean Béliveau’s devotion, attentiveness and commitment to the community, the award is accompanied by a $25,000 grant from the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation which Maxim will remit to organization of his choice.

    The Montreal Canadiens are proud to contribute to Montreal and Quebec’s heritage not only through their on-ice accomplishments, but also their commitment to the community. Accessibility, authenticity, generosity, commitment and team spirit are the values cherished by all members of the organization as they unite their efforts to make a difference for the present and the future.

    Great for Max he's a credit to the Habs name as a classy team! Way to go Lapierre!

  7. I really need to adjust my mindset when I read your posts because you are so positive and your expectation of our prospects/rookies are so great. Don't get me wrong most of what you say is accurate but always with a stretch to the positive and that is ok - better than the negatively charged poster.

    In the 70's the Habs were loaded with Norris and Hart trophy candidates. There will never ever be a talented group of players like that on one team again given the number of teams and the new cap world.

    It would take another GM with Sammy Pollock's skill and luck to put together a dynasty in the salary cap world but never say never. Go Habs Go!
