  1. The sad part is, the cap space may change, but the make up of the team under Bergevin is doomed to remain the same
  2. I saw a rumor of Buff Daddy signing in MTL
  3. How do you figure it's worthless.
  4. https://www.tsn.ca/red-wings-habs-win-big-in-tsn-hockey-s-simulated-lottery-1.1464643 IF you're missing hockey that much, tsn.ca decided to give us hockey obsessed Habs fans a scenario to ponder. In a recent mock lottery and draft, TSN has the Habs winning the Lotto and picking Quinton Byfield at 2. By all acounts, Byfield is "The Next One" as far as #1 centres with size go. If that is the case I would be perfectly happy if Bergie walks out of the draft with a 1-2 punch of the future in Byfield and Kotkaniemi. To be honest, Byfield could make the team out of camp potentially, which would be fine if it means Kotkaniemi gets a full year down in Laval with Ylonen as his trigger man. I would like to ideally have most of our Marquee prospects of the future learning how to win at the AHL level before bringing them up to the NHL. Byfield could also translate into swinging a deal for a top pairing lefty. I would think MTL could send the flyers a 2nd and a 3rd to Philly for Ghostibere.
  5. I'm not saying I've given up on Jesperi Kotkaniemi as a prospect or a hockey player. I'm saying I am highly skeptical of MB and staff abilities to properly develop young talent. I very much hope he becomes the No. 1 centre we desperately need.
  6. I think the fact of the matter with Bergevin is he still has an elephant in the room in the form of player development. Why are so many of our 1st rounders not NHL ready or living up to initial projections. Why do they look so damn promising until they get to MTL? The frustrating part of Marc Bergevin is twice now he's used our top 3 pick to draft the centre of the future we still do not appear to have. Once again in the text book definition of mental illness, Marc Bergvin has thrown his top 3 centre of the future under the bus, hoping for a different result. it's time perhaps to clean house and get a fresh set of eyes on this team.
  7. But would Joe Sakic? He might do Drouin for Byram straight up.
  8. I think overall it'll be good for any prospect not named Nick Suzuki to be playing down in Laval.
  9. I think if the plan is to bring in Romanov once his KHL deal expires, it only stands to reason that you would want a guy like Kovalchuk. A veteran presence for the young Russian to mentor under signed to a modest extension is a huge asset. It also helps young sniper Cole Caufield. I would be interested to see if Caufield ends this season in Laval, if not MTL to add scoring punch. I would be interested to know how contract talks are going for both Romanov and Caufield.
  10. I would be shocked if Gardiner actually signs in MTL.
  11. I think people are too pessimistic going into this season. I think too much emphasis is put on big ticket names. You look at what TOR and EDM did last year with the big ticket names everybody claims we're missing from our line-up and it really wasn't all that much. Remember, the Stanley Cup goes to the best team. Not to the team with most high profile individual signed to the biggest contract.
  12. Anybody want to take a run at a Chris Kreider who put up 28 goals last year? I'd rather have him on our side than have him take another skates first run at Carey. Maybe a package of Peca, Hudon and a 5th?
  13. My issue is the same as it is with most trade scenarios. I would much rather be patient with the young guys we have (Seeing how we just got an elite sniper of the future potentially in Caufield) rather than subract futures for a short term solution.
  14. He could end up a Jeff Petry type for us but withe little more jam to his game. Jeff Petry was a late bloomer and didn’t start putting bigger numbers until his late 20’s early thirties.
  15. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MjSEGRAjXs His skating looks pretty good.
