    Sticky: Re: Habs News & Notes: 2018-19 Regular Season

    As I pointed out in another thread, the price for O'Reilly would have been Poehling, a 1st and a 2nd. I like O'Reilly and he would have been a great fit here, but I don't feel we were at a point...

    No excuses for Buffalo. I bet they're having buyer remorse already.

    Re: Around the League - 2019 Off Season

    Yeah that's a good deal, I would have been fine with the Habs offering it as well.

    He's a notch above Max, but yeah, that's the ballpark.

    Re: Around the League - Playoffs 2019

    He's borderline IMO so I guess it's just a matter of perception. I'm never really wowed when I watch him. I think O'Reilly is better.

    He's very good, not sure I'd call him a superstar though.

    Re: Around the League - Playoffs 2019

    I've watched the Blues all playoffs long, he was very good. But St.Louis put up some stinkers, especially at home, and they were awful on the PK. In fact, Binnington save % at even strength was...

    Re: Around the League - Playoffs 2019

    I'd be surprised if we didn't try, in fact there was a lot of rumors about it, with Buffalo asking for our 3rd overall pick in return, but the timing wasn't great for us. Even the resulted trade...

    Re: Around the League - Playoffs 2019

    O'Reilly, unlike Duchene, always had a good reputation despite being on shit teams.

    Re: Around the League - Playoffs 2019

    St.Louis was a Cup favorite at the beginning of the year, with goaltending being an issue as usual. Once they found goaltending in Binnington, they took off.

    Great game, great outcome.
  12. Re: Rumours, Innuendos and Flat out B.S.: 2018-19 Edition

    Ghost is a great fit for us. A deal centered around Ghost for Shaw seems like a no-brainer for us.
  13. Re: Rumours, Innuendos and Flat out B.S.: 2018-19 Edition

    Signing Chara was the best move they've ever made. That contract wasn't that crazy either. 5 years deal at 7.5M. Money was high but term was great, and Bruins were a blank page at that point, having...

    Re: Around the League - Playoffs 2019

    A winning team is the best argument, there is no point to show that Mtl is a desirable destination for future UFAs if we get handcuffed by the previous contracts offered.

    I'd make an offer for...

    I read the article, and I'm not sure I agree.

    He argues that the Habs should be in win now mode because of Price, Weber and Petry. I disagree and I think it would be a mistake to immediately...

    Re: Around the League - Playoffs 2019

    It's all about value and fit. There is a time to do it, and there is the right players to do it for. If I want to spend 10M/year for 7-8 years on a player with a no movement clause to boot, that...

    Re: Around the League - Playoffs 2019

    A free asset on a bad contract is not worth it. They can even become negative assets if you're not careful, see Alzner as example.

    You can get younger players on better contracts via trade. The...

    I wouldn't even give that contract to Karlsson and he's a lot more valuable than Skinner.

    Why not? People keep pointing out that Tavares deal set the bar for Matthews and Marner. RFAs seems to be demanding UFA money these days.

    Wow, terrible deal.
  21. Re: Rumours, Innuendos and Flat out B.S.: 2018-19 Edition

    Drouin was more or less the only floater on the team last year.
  22. Re: Rumours, Innuendos and Flat out B.S.: 2018-19 Edition

    Actually it's when things get tougher that you can tell. For the most part this group just kept working through things all season. Last year they folded immediately at the beginning of the season.
  23. Re: Rumours, Innuendos and Flat out B.S.: 2018-19 Edition

    Yeah, definitely the team attitude was better this year, I would assume the new captain had some impact on it.
  24. Re: Rumours, Innuendos and Flat out B.S.: 2018-19 Edition

    The problem with JP is that he has to make the team and contribute, or else he'll be in the stands or we would lose him on waivers. There is not a lot of margin.

    Re: Around the League - Playoffs 2019

    I'd say Eller is 50/50 and Backstrom is 75/25.
