  1. So unbelievably over the moon happy right now. It’s s shame we had to lose our homegrown franchise defenseman because of this coach and ecstatic this guy is gone.
  2. I just don't know how many times a coach can try something, fail continuously and yet still keep trying the same thing again hoping for a successful result. 1.Shaw takes selfish penalties and has been a total liability this season but he's one of Therrien's faves so it's ok. Remember when he threw PK under the bus for doing some of the things Shaw is doing right now? 2. Coach playing favorites again at the expense of players with talent. It would be nice to have our best players out during OT. 3.Totally agree. Not impressed with Weber, not at all. My heart is still with PK and I wish he was still here. You're right this team could still miss the playoffs and I think Therrien should have been fired long ago.
  3. They're free-falling right now. Something needs to happen to shake this team up.
  4. I love watching this young Edmonton team play. They're fast and skilled and young. Let's hope the Habs can stop the bleeding and win one.
  5. Whenever I see Subban in that ugly yellow jersey I cry a little inside. This team was molded and tailor made for this coach. Subban and Eller out, Weber and Shaw in. If this team fails to make it to the 2nd round or God forbid miss the playoffs both of these guys deserve to be canned. It seems this team always backs into the playoffs. I totally agree about Price he's been totally average since about November.
  6. They'll both have to go together. MB hasn't fired anyone yet. To his credit he's loyal.
  7. Guess there's a reason why they removed the "No excuses" sign. This coach is all about excuses. You're right it is a cop out and I swear if I have to hear him say puck luck was the reason why they lost again I think I'll lose it.
  8. Yeah, you're right he wasn't arrogant as much as secretive and looking back in hindsight he actually didn't do a bad job when he was the GM.
  9. Brilliant post. Subban always represented the CH with pride. Never did anything off the ice to embarrass the team like driving this truck into a tree or any other such nonsense. The fact is Therrien and Bergevin had preconceived opinions about PK even before they were hired and traded him for nonhockey reasons. I really believe that.
  10. This is just the height of arrogance. He's basically saying that he knows better than all those great hockey minds involved in hockey Canada when it comes to team building. It's also very contradictory if he learned alot why wouldn't he apply this new knowledge to make the team better. My God I thought Gauthier was arrogant but this guy takes the cake,
  11. I think we all knew that Therrien knew of the trade beforehand and I would hazard a guess that his input was the driving force behind many a trade not just the PK one. Sekac, DSP and Eller were also players dealt that Therrien didn't like so it's obvious Therrien is consulted when it comes to trades. I think Bergevin lied because he wanted to protect his coach from any backlash from the trade which is admirable but people aren't stupid either/
  12. What's the over/under on how long it will take before Therrien discards this Bergevin acquisition?
  13. Found and interesting article Montreal found a smorgasbord of mediocrity and deemed it a bottom six. http://www.todaysslapshot.com/nhl-east/montreal-canadiens/canadiens-lacking-depth-direction/
  14. Yep I would agree with that as well. MB "I'm building through the draft." Trades 2 2nd round picks away for a 3rd liner. They have no clue what the heck they're doing.
  15. Pretty much, Nepotism at its finest. I thought the last regime was bad. This is the worst since Houle/Tremblay.
  16. You can tell Bergevin truly cares about his players which is refreshing to see coming from a GM. I wish Kassian a speedy recovery and hope he's back in the lineup soon.
  17. Great post and right on the money. Boston gets away with murder because they can. We should at least have one of these types of players on the roster so that when we play Boston and the Laffs he's available in case we need him. One spot on the roster for a few game won't hurt us in the long run.
  18. I know the enforcer role is diminishing but haven't you noticed that everyone seems to be played bigger, hitting more and we're playing with more sandpaper since we got this guy? Burke says alot of things but that doesn't mean he's right in fact he's done a subpar job with that team so far. I'd rather they play a smash mouth game down the stretch it's far more entertaining that's for sure
  19. If we win one more game this season please let it be this saturday

    1. Forever_Habs10


      Nope...needs to be 2 more games,the one you mentioned....and our last game of the season.

      sorry htl, going with fh10 on this one, win x 2 mate!!!!

  20. I'm glad they're trying to do an about face on that philosophy. I like the skilled players like DD but we also need bigger, tougher AND skilled players in the mold of Patches and Cole. Having a team of smurfs hasn't gotten us anywhere for the last 19 years.
  21. Same here, White brings more to the table than just fighting. Don't get me wrong I love what Brad did last night but if we resign him it should be for league minimum. We should keep one of these guys on hand so that every time we play a team with a cheap shot artist eg. Malone, Marchand etc he'll be in the lineup to take care of business. I'm so tired of this team looking weak and soft. Remember the days of Nilan. Odie and Ewan? I loved those guys just as much as the Lafleur's Roy's and Robinson. These type of players still have a role in the game even if their hands are tied by that damned instigator rule. Yes they are a dime a dozen but we should still have one regardless.
  22. His fight was the highlight of the night though I rather he would have went after Malone for that cheap shot on Emelin was nice to see someone stick up for their teammates besides Moen
  23. I'm rooting for him being a fellow maritimer and all
