    Default 2018-2019 Montreal Canadiens

    Well, here we are folks. The draft is over, and with the signing period about to start (players go damn fast in the NHL) - we will soon know exactly what the team will look like in in Sept/Oct. Sure a trade could happen over the next couple weeks, but after that nothing substantive usually happens.

    Currently the lineup looks like this:

    Pacioretty/Drouin/Gallagher
    Domi/Danault/Lehkonen
    Byron/De La Rose/Scherbak
    Shaw/Froese/Hudon

    Carr/Deslauriers/etc/etc/etc

    Weber/Petry
    Alzner/Mete
    Benn/Juulsen
    Reilly/Schlemko

    Price
    Niemi


    So yeah - as of right now we have a one of the worst teams in the NHL, but some changes will occur over the next couple weeks. Everyone knows that my opinion is that we stay the course and continue to rack up good draft picks. We simply have too many holes to take a run at the Stanley Cup currently.

    Let's see how this plays out.

    Wow, that's quite a line up.....looking at that makes me believe that all of Pacioretty, Price and Weber will no longer be on this team for the long term. Question is when do they trade them, this summer, trade deadline?

    But holy crap batman….we won't be able to sign enough free agents to ice a competitor....

    Price is young enough that he can wait out a 2-3 year rebuild. I would certainly trade Weber. Max is a given to be gone by the trade deadline, and likely much sooner.

    June 25, 2018 --- the day Krusty and Bolduke became one person.

    I've been saying this exact line on here for 10 months.

    Sooner or later everyone was going to come around to the light.

    I mean, this org is only going to get worse in the near future, not better, and that only really leaves one course of action.

    Tavares being sane and not even considering montreal probably helps as well. Hopefully stastny does likewise.

    I would not mind some more high draft pics again next year but we have the funds to get a C a scoring winger and help at D. Probably Fk up a high pick.

    Deslauriers will be a regular, not a 13th man

    in truth, it's much better than saying "we are going to suck by accident and make moves to win now, and in 5 years we will try to lose on purpose, so come back in 10 years after we are done."

    Is there anyone in the UFA list that even make sense for us? It seems to me like we should pretty much ignore all those guys. Maybe Grabner for some goal scoring depth?

    It’s fine to sign these guys to short term deals. We have tons of cap space. The problem happens if you give any of these guys term. That would be dumb.
