    Older fans typically live in the moment. They want the game they are watching to be good and they want players they've heard of on the team. They're not super concerned about winning a cup of having sustained future success. They simply want instant gratification that comes with the individual game they are watching in the moment.

    When you personally aren't concerned with the future there is no real reason to think about it.
    Funny hearing a millennial talk about instant gratification...

    Older fans like us simply want a well run franchise without the moronic mistakes of the last few decades .

    We have no issue on a 3-5 year rebuild . We saw the multiple cups being won and we got our gratification , you maybe lucky to have seen 1 cup .

    I'm good with a rebuild but I've been around long enough to know that the Habs will never do one. Neither Price nor Weber will be traded. To do so would be admitting that they were wrong about trading for Weber and about extending Price.

    Youre good with a rebuild but you want the Habs to trade for mcdonagh and trade our to 3 pick for a center.

    Does not compute.

    McDonaugh has plenty of tread left on his tires and unless there's a top eschelon center available to draft I think that the Habs should trade the pick for one. Not an aging player but a young blue chip centre with most of his career still in front of him.

    Unless your goal is to try to race back to 8th place next season, you simply don't trade your best REBUILD chip for a near 29 year old d-man (McD) in order to accommodate at near 33 year old d-man (Weber). That would lead to more mediocrity and not help the system at all.

    Max MUST be moved prospects (including at least one top/near ready) and high picks. You might be able to get 2 first rounders for Max.

    Players like Max rarely become available in the NHL. This is a major opportunity for the Habs. They can't **** this up like they did with Subban.
