    Probably best to move on from him and get the best possible return now. The Habs aren't competing with Toronto, Tampa Bay and Boston during Max's advanced years.

Bad contracts to dump in Bourque, Cole and Moen. The rest was filler.
    It was not bad, but we didnt have a pipeline of good prospect coming from Hamilton, that would have made the diference
    Putting that clown of Sly to coach our future on top of some bad drafting is what killed our growth.

    MAGodin: Why signing Max Pacioretty to a contract extension is starting to make some sense https://theathletic.com/420002/2018/...ke-some-sense/
    To have a better chance to resign him, Bergevin needs to step down first.
    and that way, Patches doesnt loose face, makes it all easy for the new negotiations to take place.
    im ok with most of the moves MB did this summer but he needs to be the scapegoat

    It’s time for the Canadiens to start letting the kids play and also let them make mistakes. Tell them what they did wrong and put them right back on the ice again to gain more experience and hopefully not make the same mistakes too many times. Let them grow up together both on and off the ice as a team.

    I believe Canadiens fans are ready to buy into a full rebuild after watching a bad, boring team get shut out 12 times last season and score only once in 14 other games. Wouldn’t you rather watch a young, rebuilding team open up a bit offensively and lose something like 5-3 than what you witnessed last season?

    Fans would also know there is at least a solid plan in place now. It might even fill some of those empty seats at the Bell Centre that grew in number last season with each loss.
    Yes, I know I would.

    The desire for a proper rebuild has never been stronger. The patch and play method the last 25 years hasn't worked.

    It has for team profits. Otherwise they would have rebuilt properly years ago.

    I'm not sure in what universe we would suddenly be a run and gun team, rebuild or not.

    Sure but watching some kids develop is better than watching Dano and Pleks on the top 6

    Sure but I don't see how our kids would suddenly be able to score 3 goals per game.

    If the canadiens were able to unload price to the islanders (taking back some salary) for the isles first next year and a prospect. That imo would be a good trade. The islanders even with price are going to be a team that is in the lower echelon of the league, thus allowing montreal another lottery pick and a better chance at drafting hughes.
    Then trade pax to the kings for their first and second next season. Los Angeles is an old team, and will be hard pressed to make the playoffs next season. I really dont think think will.
    By sending pax to the kings, this could allow the habs a chance at another lottery pick, and yet another chip in the hughes sweepstake.
    Even if the canadiens didnt get hughes, they pickup up 6 really good prospects with the islanders top 2 choices, the kings top two choices and their own. Jmho

    I have a feeling 2019 first rounders are of high value due to the good pool of prospects...can anyone back this up?

    Seattle will be getting a team rather soon, the cap will keep rising, I would think that new org would jump at the prospect of getting a local BC boy to increase fan base draw, and whose wife I’m sure would love to go home to the Pacific Northwest, just sayin..

    FWIW, 2019 & 2020 drafts are being touted as the best cuvée since 2003

    Actually no, 2017 was regarded amongst the weakest draft classes, and 2018 was considered good but lacking depth.

    Anyway it’s always a crapshoot no one projected 2003 draft class to be what it has become beforehand
