Hockey Guru / Grand manitou (6/6)



  1. He did just win it all Marc, against your team by the way. Interesting logic. Without adding anyone significant, we're not going to be a better team next season. I really don't think replacing Weber, Tatar, Danault, Perry, and Staal with Savard, Wideman, and Paquette is going to cut it, let's hope MB isn't done.
  2. Pitiful that evidently no one involved in the decision was able to see the potential repercussions in this day and age.
  3. Wow, the Oilers dishing out weird long-term deals like there‘s no tomorrow
  4. Better than expected, I can live with this.
  5. Given those reports, I'm guessing 4 years at 5M AAV. Slow clap.
  6. That's good to know. How's his skating though? Just in case it's not working out for him in Green Bay
  7. No idea if he's even willing to sign here but I agree, with Weber out I'd throw both money and term at him. It's not like we have the option to find someone internally, it's really Hamilton or nobody else. Signing both Savard and Hamilton would be perfect, which probably means it's not going to happen, but it's nice to dream. Having Edmundson/Petry, Chiarot/Hamilton, and Romanov/Savard on the backend would be pretty sweet.
  8. We'll re-sign both Perry and Staal. We'll offer Hamilton a contract but he decides to sign elsewhere. We'll overpay for Martinez instead. Danault will realize that he's not going to get the money he wants and stays in Montreal, giving us essentially the same lineup as last season.
  9. For sure, I don't think they'd be willing to trade Eichel for KK straight up. Not sure I like this though, I'd rather have traded for Reinhart. If BUF really gave him away for Levi and Florida's 1st rounder, I think we could have offered something similar. That would have left us with Suzuki, Reinhart, and Kotkaniemi down the middle, which would be quite nice I think.
  10. Very true, I'm still curious though... is this is all MB or did he check with his "boss" first? The move does come with some repercussions PR-wise, which is usually something Molson would have some interest in. Also, fair point regarding Bergevin's stance on character. Picking the kid is one thing, but he's going to be on a very short leash.
  11. That would probably mean Kotkaniemi’s days in Montreal are over…
  12. Absolutely, it’s a really weird move given the heavy emphasis he‘s placed on the importance of character, intangibles, and whatnot. I‘d rather not have to deal with this at all and it‘s coming from way out of left field but here we are. I‘m kind of wondering if Molson was okay with the pick beforehand and nodded it off. We‘ll find out soon enough I suppose.
  13. I don’t like the pick either, but it is what it is and I‘m not inclined to knee-jerk reactions (trying not to at least, it’s a work in progress thing I guess). Be that as it may, there are plenty of decisions in my life I‘m not proud of, so I‘m not going to cast the first stone. Hopefully the kid will be able to turn the page and grow from this. Let’s see how it turns out.
  14. Ballsy? Yes, certainly. The right move? Definitely not. I understand that other teams teams were willing to pick him as well, but I'm really not fond of the message we're sending here. On the other hand, we're talking about an adolescent who made a terrible mistake. He's not the first one and won't be the last. Legally, if I understood everything correctly, the thing is settled and done with. If he's truly remorseful about what happened, and I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt here unless there's clear evidence to the contrary, there's something to be said about 2nd chances as well. It's highly controversial for sure, I'm not sure we need the drama.
  15. I may be alone on this one but I'm glad we still have him
