    Couple thoughts after losing 5 in a row

    Neither do any of your snide comments with little, if any, thought behind them, and yet here you are.

    Couple thoughts after losing 5 in a row

    -You can have a bunch of really awesome wingers, that's great and all. However, with the exception of the truly elite talents in NHL history, wingers do not drive offense. Centers do. We have a #2 playing the role of a #1, a #3 playing the role of a #2, and a #4 in the role of a #3. -Then we go...

    I think that if a team claims a player, they have to keep him on the active roster. Can't claim a player, only to put him in the minors.

    I had faith at that point & time. Guy Boucher was the head coach in the AHL and we had a lot of prospects that were pushing. The work he did with Subban was amazing. Had McDonagh come out of college after his second year, I don't think we would have ever traded him. Alas...

    The point is, virtually every other team in the league is able to cultivate young (and cheap) talent to get in their lineup. We haven't. We've assembled a team of mercenaries. It'd be one thing if we had the Edmonton model of, our lottery picks are the ones making it and are pretty good while...

    Since he seems legit . . . Bergy extended 3 years?

    They'd have value if they had expiring contracts. Teams looking for rentals already have a lot of money allocated to their core players. We're stuck with them and it'll take a minor miracle to move off from them.

    Around The League: 2021-2022

    Fine. How about... Every single team in the NHL that played today? With the exception of Seattle, for obvious reasons, every single one of them had more than we did. Some of the teams even had twice or greater the amount we had. Pittsburgh, with Crosby & Malkin injured, still had more players...

    Around The League: 2021-2022

    In tonight's lineup, we had 4 players that were drafted by the organization. In comparison, the Sharks had ten players they drafted along with one player they signed as undrafted UFAs. And they haven't been all that good at drafting in the last few years. Romanov, Lehkonen, Caufield combined...

    Since he seems legit . . . Bergy extended 3 years?

    New GM won't be completely handcuffed, but he'll still have a lot of hurdles. Outside of Petry, we don't have moveable long term contracts given to older players. There won't be any teams lining up for Gallagher/Anderson/Hoffman/Savard's contracts. I'd love to be wrong, but they're going to be...

    GDT Game 4: VS Sharks, Tuesday, October 19, 7:00EST

    Bedard's going to be near the MacKinnon level. He won't quite be on the Crosby/McDavid level, but he's going to be a hell of a player that any franchise would be doing cartwheels to have. The only downfall for him is his size, he's 5'9" at 16 years old. If he can grow an inch or two, all the...

    2022 Draft Thread

    Sort of unrelated, but if any of you have the chance to watch the Michigan Wolverines play this year, jump on it. I don't recall a team in the NCAA stacked with so many good players. Owen Powers, Matty Berniers, Luke Hughes, Brendan Brisson, Kent Johnson, Thomas Bordeleau, Erik Portillo. With...

    Habs Season Thread: 2021-22

    My opinion: It looks like a team that hasn't had time to recover from a brutal playoff beating they took this Spring/Summer. Does anyone else think it's a coincidence that the player with the most jump remaining from last season's team is Drouin? There was an NHL goaltender a few years ago that...

    Habs Season Thread: 2021-22

    Shrug. If there's anything this organization has been great at in the last 20 years, it's not developing prospects. Not only that, this management group that never says anything about anything, was hyping him up like the next big thing. Unfathomable. Meanwhile, watch as some start to turn on...
