Draft pick / Choix au repêchage

Draft pick / Choix au repêchage (1/6)



  1. Everyone keeps saying the habs don't have a #1 center. That's not true. Here's an outside the box idea. Play Galchenyuk as #1 with pacioretty on the left and Plekanec on the right. Plekanec can help the defensive side of the game. Then the lines could be. Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Plekanec Droui - Danault - Gallagher Lehkonen -Hudon- Hemsky Byron Mitchell Shaw/Mccarron
  2. Bergevin seems to get and get rid of the players his coach wants. His major mistake, was hiring Therrien. Eller might still be here, and Pk would but that is done and over with. Crying over spilled milk doesn't clean up the mess. The defense he seems to be building is a defense that Julien wants; a 2011 bruins wall of defense. I'm of the mind that maybe he is holding out to let some of the young guns make the team (Hudon, Reway, Scherbak, Etc). Up front the scoring is Gallagher, Galchenyuk, Pacioretty, Drouin, Lehkonen, "Plekanec" maybe Byron, and Hemsky will probably get 10 to 15. The other Forwards will probably get 1 lol. There are a lot of shot blockers to help Price. The real problem that created this quagmire are the politics and taxes in Quebec. I like to believe or pretend that Bergevin is doing what he can.
  3. http://www.gohabsgo.com/2017/07/28/blockbuster-trade-between-the-habs-and-islanders-o/ The departure of Andrei Markov keeps the Montreal Canadiens salary cap space at just under $9million. That seems to be the perfect amount for Marc Bergevin to hit a home run and JC Lajoie of 91.9 Sports has re-ignited the idea of what the Montreal Canadiens should offer the New York Islanders to land John Tavares. The name of Alex Galchenyuk has been linked to that of Tavares for several months, but Lajoie believes that the Habs would have to add nothing less than Brendan Gallagher, Charlie Lindgren as well as a first-round pick to get their hands on the Islanders captain. The Hab's first line could be completely unstoppable with Max Pacioretty, John Tavares and Jonathan Drouin, but the price to pay is quite hefty and it would not solve any perceived problems on the blueline. Tavares put up 28 goals and 38 assists for 66 points in 77 games last season, but he will be an unrestricted free agent next year and several experts are questioning his intention to return to New York. Would you be willing to offer Alex Galchenyuk, Brendan Gallagher, Charlie Lindgren and a first-round pick for John Tavares? The lines could be. Pacioretty-Tavares-Drouin- Lehkonen-Plekanec-Scherbak Hemsky-Danault-Shaw-McCarron Byron-Hudon-Mitchell-Martinsen
  4. MArkov is one of the best hab defensemen in a long time; however,at 38 years old a GM has to be VERY Careful in signing a player... Markov said he would play for no other NHL Team than the Habs And said that due to family reasons he is going back to RUSSIA... l was it because the Habs did not want to give him 5 to 6M ... perhaps and if it's the case MB's #1 priority is NOT ONE player.... it's the ENTIRE ORGANIZATION. Please look at it this way: He signs MArkov at $6M he is pretty much done and that is our team for this year. HE lets MArkov Go And he has 8.4M to acquire a 1C via trade/acquisition or acquire a Dman + a 1/2C....via trade.... 8.4M + let's say Gallagher or Shaw in a trade equals $12M in Cap space! The Plekanec drop next year takes care of the Price increase + most of Pacioretty raise. Markov won't be back... the sky isn't falling. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. At this point in Markov's career and his age it would be insane to give him what he wanted. Personally, I think good on Berg for not budging. I still believe Jerabek can replace Markov too.
  5. Would you happily give back Drouin for Sergachev? And then watch Sergachev rot in the Ohl or be forced to stay up like what's probably going to happen to Tampa all to keep a pick. Look to players like Latendresse to see what happens when the development is rushed.
  6. I also read, that Mcphee is also in on it and Bargin bin can lose him to Vegas.
  7. i read that there is a rumbling coming out of Edmonton that after the ridiculous contract Mcdavid got, they're probably likely to trade RNH. The article said Montreal and Edmonton are in talks about a Gallagher for RNH swap. The lines could be Pacioretty-RNH-Drouin Galchenyuk-Danault-Scherbak/Hudon Lehkonen-Plekanec-Hemsky Byron-Mitchell-McCarron
  8. It's Eklund so... but he just posted that Chicago talked to MTL about Galchenyuk for Anisimov swap.
  9. A precedent is set and players like Ghosteretti, and galchenyuk will want more? 30% of the salary is tied up in two players. This is not a way to build a contending team. Too bad it wasn't true that Price was traded for Crawford and Kane.
  10. How do we know? Maybe he did, but they said no. Can we fault Bergevin for players not wanting to be over-taxed and forced into the french/english politics?
  11. http://www.nhltraderumors.me/2017/06/nhl-trade-rumors-alex-galchenyuk-to-new-york-islanders.html Trade rumors surround Montreal Canadiens forward Alex Galchenyuk. Several teams have expressed interest, including the New York Islanders. According to sources, the Islanders are offering defenseman Nick Leddy, and twenty-year-old forward Anthony Beauvillier to the Canadiens in exchange for Galchenyuk. This seems like a fair trade, which would benefit both teams.
  12. I have grave news. Vegas will not be picking Plekanec, but there is still something to smile about. They'll probably taking Emelin. https://www.habseyesontheprize.com/latest-news/2017/6/21/15848094/vegas-golden-knights-expansion-draft-rumours-canadiens-alexei-emelin-charles-hudon-brandon-davidson
  13. I don't know if this is true. http://www.react365.com/58afd68962c06/the-canadiens-traded-goaltender-carey-price-to-the-chicago-blackhawks-for-goaltenders-corey-crawford-and-right-winger-patrick-kane.html
  14. Apparently both Rad and Markov have agreed to contracts, but are probably waiting until after the draft to complete. http://www.gohabsgo.com/2017/06/14/according-to-a-919fm-radio-host-bergevin-already-h/
  15. I think it's safe to assume that the six forwards that will be protected are Max Pacioretty, Brendan Gallagher, Paul Byron, Phillip Danault, Andrew Shaw and Alex Galchenyuk . They can still protect one more. Who do ya'll think will be protected for the seventh spot? Tomas Plekanec ($6 million cap hit for one more season), Charles Hudon, Daniel Carr or Jacob De la Rose. Probably the most likely will be Charles Hudon. On defense Jeff Petry and Shea Weber clearly will, so which player becomes the third defensemen? Nathan Beaulieu, Jordie Benn or Alexei Emelin. It's common sense to say that Emelin will be left exposed, but I don't think common sense is something Bergevin possesses. Even still which would ya'll protect Nathan Beaulieu, or Jordie Benn?
