  1. I've been pointing out that McNiven has deserved more of a chance in the organization for years. Meanwhile we wasted his development trying to pretend a mid-20s Lindgren was gonna develop into something other than an AHL starter. I wouldn't blame McNiven for being frustrated.
  2. What was Bergevin's position within the Chicago organization back then?
  3. I would agree that I think we're a better team than our record indicates. However, maybe I also haven't considered how important players like Price, Weber, Danault, Perry, and Kotkaniemi were to this team's functioning last year. Maybe we are a 1-6 team. Or well... that would be absurdly bad. But maybe we are worse than 4-3 or 3-4.
  4. Well... I suppose we're due for a win then, hmm? (probably not)
  5. Excitement is good. Better than whatever we're getting so far this season.
  6. At this point, you're right... It couldn't be any worse. I just think the Bergevin era is over. Please let it end. Some good things happened, some bad things happened. The team never really achieved much. Let. It. Be. Over.
  7. Yeah, not too worried about Suzuki's early season start. I'm sure he'll come around soon. I still expect 50-60 points for him on the year.
  8. The D looks pretty shoddy right now... And our center position really is quite strengthened. We had a moment there where it looked like the center ice position would be a strength (and I do like Suzuki), but it's not looking like much this season. Sure, Dvorak and Suzuki are competent centers, but neither strike me as a superstar player who can carry a team. Which is, as a fan, what I've wanted to see my entire adult life.
  9. Overall, I am not getting excited. Sure, our expected goals are crap, so we probably should have more goals than we've scored, but... Beating Detroit doesn't give me hope that we are gonna be a good team this season. Fully expected us to struggle on this Western road swing.
  10. I'm almost thinking Bergevin shouldn't be making any more moves at all as GM. The rumor mill keeps circulating that this may be his last season, so... should he really be making any changes at this point? If he does something minor, sure, but I don't want him moving any of our top prospects.
  11. You are right. I think the Cup Final fluke run probably raised expectations, but... I don't see this team making the playoffs this year. We barely made it last year and now we're in a tougher division. I've only watched about 10 minutes of the season so far. No interest in tuning in right now. And we don't even really have a prospect in Laval to be excited about improving the big club.
  12. Has anyone mentioned what our worst ever losing streak to start a season is? Is 0-5-0 our worst?
  13. I suspect the 2-0-0 Hurricanes who have looked pretty impressive over the last few seasons are going 3-0-0 after tonight. Would be lovely for Montreal to get headed in the right direction, but... I just see another loss.
  14. I mean, I don't think we know if DD is actually a good coach or not yet. I think we can all agree that Montreal making it to the Finals last year was a Cinderella story. A fairytale. Carey elevated his game, we had some luck, some pivotal individual performances, but... It didn't feel like a contender making a run to the Finals. That was TB. I sort of see us struggling a lot this season. The D is still bad. It has been for years. Our center depth was really hit when Danault and KK left. We're seeing what it looks like for Suzuki to have the toughest match-ups instead of Danault now.
  15. I would be surprised if we beat the 'Canes in the next game. Despite Kotkaniemi's demotion to the fourth line... I sort of seeing him having a multi-point night in Montreal. And of course Aho will show us why we tried to offer sheet him away from Carolina a few years ago.
  16. I have little confidence, but that's just how I've been with Montreal since, like... Koivu, Kovalev, Souray years.
  17. Hope we win! Don't wanna go 0-4 to start the season!
  18. Meanwhile... The Dvorak line appears to be our best line to start the season!
  19. I feel the same way. I've watched 10 minutes of the season so far. I just feel like it's not really worth tuning in for every moment this year. My expectations are quite low. I don't think we are a playoff team (with or without Price). It's also hard to be excited when the D is not what I believe it should be. Petry and Romanov are the only interesting players back there. Maybe the team turns it around and wins the next five. I also wouldn't be surprised to see us go 0-5-0 to begin the season.
  20. Doesn't have Weber on IR also help make us cap compliant?
