Draft pick / Choix au repêchage

Draft pick / Choix au repêchage (1/6)



  1. Player G WILLIAM.KARLSSON 24 ANDERS.LEE 21 RICKARD.RAKELL 20 ERIC.STAAL 20 BRAYDEN.POINT 18 BROCK.BOESER 18 VIKTOR.ARVIDSSON 17 SEAN.COUTURIER 16 JASON.ZUCKER 16 NAZEM.KADRI 16 SEBASTIAN.AHO 16 NICK.SCHMALTZ 16 KEVIN.HAYES 16 EVGENY.DADONOV 16 We can always randomly point to other players who are playing as bad or who are playing better. HIs numbers look pretty bad compared to the list above Just because Oreilly only has 8 evg and galchenyk has 9 I could care less. Oreilly not on our team. I care that Galchenyk does not have 18 or 20 . Again my biggest beef is he is one of the worst defensive forwards on the team. And his numbers offensively are not making up for how bad he is.. He made a sweet play the other night on his goal. He read the cross pass and got a stick in the lane which lead to him scoring. That is being aware on the defensive side of the puck. The goal was a bonus. No one expects him to be Bob Gainey. But if your not putting up 30 plus goals a year you better become better defensively.
  2. What about MAx, he is paid 400000 dollars less then Galchenyk, has had 4 straight 30 plus goal seasons, and by far a better player on the defensive side of the puck. IS he having a bad season yep dam tootin he is... Would it make you happier if I said 20 or 25 or 30? How about 68 games, 9 even strength goals, WOW....Certainly a good young player to build around, NOT, oh and by the way Deslauriers who gets paid 750 thousand has 7 even strength goals in only 44 games. Same old with Galchenyk, needs tp play with better players, needs to be given more icetime how do you expect him to play with less skilled players like shaw and lekonen and drouin and hudon and plaks and o an on and on, when he does nothing changes, who cares if he is a minus gazillion RIGHT at least he can score Well 4 goals is 20 games is not scoiring and not what you pay someone 4.9 million for :). 9 even strength goals in 68 game is not scoring is not someone you pay 4.9 million to.
  3. Delaurias is right nobody willing to pay the price. Our so called sniper who gets more power play time then almost anyone else on the team has 3 goals in his last 19 games All in one game and gets paid almost 5 million a year and we are worried about a fringe player making 775000 a year. He is not the problem but a player like Galchenyk is. Galchenyk is paid to score and isn't. Delaurier is paid to stir things up and be a physical presence and is doing his job.
  4. That is a bet I would like to take :).. that would mean all 3 players would have to get .76 points per game They are all under .6 this season and the most anyone of them reached in a season would was .73 and that was JD on a much better scoring team... I will take the odds How do we get this set up
  5. There is no way this team should consider keeping Price, Weber or Patches for any reason, you can add Petry to this list also. Not that I don't like any of them. But, this core has failed miserably, we could not even get out of round one last season against another team who was smart enough to blow it up. This season we have one of the worst records in the league. All 4 would be 30 or older. We have a young goalie ready to make a step forward, we have some really good young wingers. We need to add to that youth with puck moving deeman and two top end centerman. The 4 players above would all warrant at least a first round pick and a prospect or multiple pieces. Who cares if we have to take back salary. And I don't care if its picks or potential prospects. As long as the picks/propects are either deeman or centerman.
  6. Is character the only English word that Bergevin knows? And does he even know what this means Does he realize the odds of even making to the NHL are like 1 in what? 3 or 4000. Most nhl players have to work at the trade from the moment they can walk, they give up almost everything most kids take for granted to get to the nhl. Yes some have less talent then others, but very few make it on talent alone, it takes dedication, hard work, total commitment, and character just to get there. So 9 out of 10 times the only thing that separates most NHL players is talent. So go get the talent and sto looking for character its already therep
  7. Oh I agree about price and weber both injured, I was just saying all players should be moved 25 or over, they are in that group, we could have been shopping price December/january though when this ship already sank. I am sure a team like Edmonton/Stl Louis would have jumped then, they have pieces we need. This team is getting older the core does not cut it. Not even close.
  8. What a waste. This team will again have the same core next season. Less there best defensive forward. It was time to unload the core. Patches and any other forward over 25, Price, Weber. all the dee with the exception of Mete and Julsen. You have to be all in not partial. Your core next season will be the same as this season but all another year older.We cannot win with what we have, we likely don't make the playoffs again next year with what we have. So why keep anyone ....over 25 If you get a 1st round pick 2nd and prospect take it for patches that would be fine. . We needed to unload the core. 2nds for Byron, Shaw etc, pucks for Benn, Schlemko, Alsnzer thats good enough Prospects to take on cap from other teams so they could load up for the playoffs Even a guy like Kirby Rychle who you just got may have got a good look for the remainder of the year if you unloaded all the forwards over 25. Now by not cleaning house the young core will still sit while players like shaw, Byron, patches, etc eat up minutes
  9. Yep not much value in goalies, Mrazek since 2015. .910 and 2.72, still only 26 years old Price since 2015, .917 and 2.48, I never even realized, that ranks him 15th in the NHL with goalies more then 100 games. And were going to pay him 10.5 million starting at 31 years of age. He is already on the decline. How about price for Draistal. While Edmonton has a GM as bad as montreal. Not sure there are many GM who would be willing to take on price.
  10. I don't think it was a wrong choice. He is by all accounts one of the top coaches in the NHL. I do however think the game is changing and older coaches that have been around the game for so long need to be flushed out our system. We need to start looking at younger coaching minds. With French not being the criteria even having said that I would be looking at coaches like Dominique Ducharme , Jay Leach , Sheldon Keefe etc. However this is the least of our worries right now. We have crap for management, our AHL hockey coaching staff is even worse then crap, AHL team should have a roster with an average age of 22 to 23 with your oldest player maybe 25 or 26. If they have not made the jump by then they never will and why have them on your roster. We should not care about trying to win at this level we should care about developing first then the winning will take care of itself
  11. That's so true, not only do we have the worst GM in the NHL right now, we also have the worst coaching staff in the AHL for developing young kids, which is their main objective...
  12. With a bottom pairing of Markov and one of Beulieu/Emelin. for another year until Jullsen
  13. As most know I am not the biggest supporter of Galchenyk. But its refreshing to have a coach actually compliment his players instead of beating them down like the previous successor. Maybe they keep Galchenyk and I get to eat my words. And while the debate whether Alex Galchenyuk belongs at center or on the wing will likely continue, Julien for his part likes what he sees from the 24-year-old overall. "It's obvious to me that he's become a much better player today than from the day I arrived," underlined the 57-year-old. "He skates better, and is confident with the puck. He's still young and continues to work on the parts of his game that he needs to improve. He has a good attitude and wants to get better. I have nothing bad to say about Alex. He's someone who wants success for himself, but wants it even more so for the team."
  14. Just assume no teams want to give up their young up an coming players for the likes of Weber and MCdonagh. but both the habs and nyr want to make the move for sake of making a move. Would you do a trade strait up. Weber for McDonagh ?
  15. Yes, I was referring to AG, as much as you like to find excuses for him, I like to point out why he is not worth playing five on five no matter how pretty he looks. And its not even about has defensive play any more. End result minus 3, only 2 shots on net, 0 goals and over 3 minutes of PP time. That's great he was at 62% tonight, that may very well move him ahead of Joe Morrow and into and into 19 place on the team this year.12 th among forwards.
