Re: For the first time in 47 years...

Of courss. We debated in the summer as their wasn’t much else to talk about. I hope that whoever made that analysis among the scouting staff feels a bit silly right now.

Re: Alzner

This summer was slim pickings for top-4 defense. Alzner and Shattenkirk were the two prizes. Alzner had a good reoutation as a team guy and blocks a ton of shots, but isn’t particularly mobile and had bad possession stats. He was highlighted as the prime candidate to get overpaid before July 1st and...

Re: sergachev

Even DeBrincat has four points. He’s one of the picks we used to acquire Shaw. Giving picks in a deep draft to get tougher seems like insanity to me.

MB pulled off a few steals early on with the small trades, but lately he has been on the losing end of most.

Quick question Muller. Has Sergachev started to change your mind about his potential to play at NHL speed?

Re: Potential trade.

Unfortunately MB has negotiated against himself in the press. Chucky’s trade value is low, partly because of his struggles and partly because MBtold everyone who would listen that he doesn’t trust Chucky. There is no “trading him the right way” unless we flip him at the deadline when there is a mark...

Wonderful. Scherbak seems to be hitting his stride. 9 points in 8 games thus far.

Re: The $10 million mistake

As for Markov, all I can say is, really??? Markov has been a Hab longer than any other player and has had plenty of opportunities to bolt for more money over the course of his career. Sure, he tried to cash in one last time. Personally I think a number of this team's problems would be smoothed out ...

Re: You be the Habs GM

We’re in a tough spot because flash rebuilds rarely work and we have too many contracts locked in to completely blow the team up. Still, it looks like tweaking might be more feasible. 1) Institute a diversity policy for all new hires. A French Canadian can be guaranteed to be in the finalists for an...

Re: Bergevin will soon be gone!!!

Don't blame me. I just call it like I see and predict it TH. Chucky is next to go. Perhaps this is Chuckys' fault that beer is more important than hockey. I’m not blaming you AB. And it wouldn’t surprise me if he was next to go. I’m just saying that the attitude of blaming everything on individual ...

Since the Habs are so brutal I can't even stomach player grades, how about distracting myself with more proof that +/- don't mean s***. The only Habs who avoided a minus in this game: Plekanec, Benn, Hemsky Yeah, really useful stat. Plus/minus doesn’t belong in serious conversation. It is completel...

Re: Bergevin will soon be gone!!!

And Montreal will continue to suffer. You love to pick on an individual and you hace yet to be right a single time. It wasn’t Koivu’s fault that Craig Darby and Randy McKay were considered top-6 forwards by our management. It’s not PK’s fault that MB has a giant ego and likes guys who hate losing mo...

Re: Bergevin will soon be gone!!!

Lol Plouf, and Andrigetto too. How long will it be before they just get rid of the core of the problem. Chucky. Wait, I’m confused, wasn’t the core problem Subban? Weren’t we guaranteed a Cup when he left? Or Koivu? Or maybe blaming any one player for our woes is a useless way to analyze the team?

There are 75 games remaining, there is NO WAY we are out of this.  Not pretty right now, but I think we'll be seeing some W's very very soon.  Have faith guys.  Agreed. Last season Toronto started off horribly and was back in it by December. It’s really boring to say, but it takes about 30 or 40 ga...
