    Having more offensive upside than De La Rose would not take much. My neighbors dog could could get as many points

    Default Habs News & Notes: 2018 Offseason

    FWIW - Alzner buyout would cost $1.3M cap hit over next 8-years, provide net $3.3M in additional cap space. Yearly cap rise will likely be more than $1.3M on average

    I’d do it if I were in MBs shoes, just sayin....

    Better deal to just wait another year IMO. Hell maybe he even gets movable if he has a good year.

    Both were obvious though
    Alzner was always bad and Raonic was good but not great.

    That’s pretty much all they can do.

    The defence is a disaster.

    Morrow on the "attitude" thing: I'd say that's an unfair comment. Marc wasn't in the dressing room often. I don't know if he was trying to save his job, but I don't find that right. You can't say that your locker room & players have bad attitude." (via @JdeMontreal)

    For full transparency:

    Morrow went on to say no GM nowadays knows what’s going on in the dressing room as they no longer spend anytime there..

    Agreed. The defense is "unfixable" at this point. They're just going to have to ride it out for another season or two.

    “It’s (Canadiens GM) Marc (Bergevin) who decides, but I work alongside him on all these decisions,” said Molson. “We talk about how we can improve the team and up until now, I’ve supported all his choices and there will probably be more changes coming this spring.”

    At this point, "changes" would be scouting related.

    Coaching vacancies are filled, there might be room for one or two changes in the administration, but if there are any real changes (outside of the hockey team, which is there is always a turnover) it'll be with the scouts.
    Elite goaltending will hide a lot of a bad team's flaws and make them look a lot better than they truly are. That's why Carey Price is the single most important player to his team in the NHL.

    My new poorly written out thoughts on this season's Montreal Canadiens.

    Julien already laid the groundwork “candidate doesn’t have to speak French”
