    This is true, but I think the bold is important.

    You also have to remember that he's old and has a horrible contract that still goes for another 7 years. There are risks with Weber going forward. As a GM you need to weigh the good with the bad when it comes to a player like Weber.

    The cap recapture penalty on Nashville makes his contact less problematic and he doesnt have a trade clause .

    Its simply getting back to health and proving he can still be a quality D man

    The biggest issue is this regime willing to eat humble pie and make a deal

    Yeah, webers contract isn't bad especially in terms of actual salary and the cap isn't too bad in the era of 11 million dollar contracts.

    I would throw the Devils in that mix.

    They went after JVR and lost and tried to get Maroon also.
    Go Habs Go!

    The Max Pacioretty debacle is just the latest example of the confrontational management style of Marc Bergevin.

    The astonishing thing is that Patches is the fifth straight Canadiens star with whom GM Bergevin has picked a fight. Is this any way to run a professional sports franchise ó to publicly squabble with your top talent?

    But thatís exactly what Bergevin has been doing. He had testy tussles with four key Habs prior to Pacioretty, starting with a fellow named P.K. Subban and continuing through his wars of words with Andrei Markov, Alexander Radulov and Alex Galchenyuk.

    His way or the highway management.

    Very old school and something that generally doesnít play well with athletes.

    The org needs some new school style and new blood. This is becoming an embarrassment

    It's funny how ever since Max hired that yapping mutt Alan Walsh to be his agent, all of these reports have come out about him. Considering this management group is notoriously tight-lipped...

    For an organization that's trying to "Trade him ASAP", they sure are taking their time, huh?

    I'd be very surprised if there was a trade this summer.
    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.

    I donít see it. Heíll likely be a rental trade at deadline.

    Once again MB screwed up an opportunity to move an asset when it was at its highest value.

    If that isn't fireable?
