Thrashers call up Maxwell

Former Canadien Ben Maxwell may be in the Atlanta Thrashers lineup tonight. Maxwell who was traded to Atlanta as part of the deal which brought defenceman Brent Sopel to Montreal, was called up by the Thrashers last night.

Maxwell spent the entire season in Hamilton. He previously played 20 games over two seasons with the Canadiens but failed to collect a point.

    They needed a big body or more scoring not defense. They made the moves they had to . Lets not get carried away. They got Mara – use him!!!

    They better go out and draft a big centerman or go get some size in the offseason. See if they can swap for Weiss or someone who still has upside. Hab fans deserve some Marque guys and someone who has size with some hands.

    The cupboard was well stocked a few years ago and now its bare. They have to try and get something before July 1 for impending FA- perhaps the opportunity for a team to negotiate exclusively.

    I want to see some bold moves from the GM  in the future!!! This is the mecca of hockey.They have to start being creative and being smarter with draft picks!!

    K enjoy your trollie friends then.

    PS Savard ?  Thankfully ?

    By the the Corey came along, Savard’s damage was already done.  Yeah one can say “Savard got this & that player”  No one recognizes what Savard gave up to get them.

    I read that he was assigned to Hamilton, and recalled 2-3 hours later. Most likely a trade that fell through.

    Is White in Hamilton or up with the big club??

    I read the same on renaud lavoie’s twitter page but there was no official announcement from the team. I wanna see Dawes play

    So, inspite of my naive hopes, my birthday weekend was probably the worst I’ve ever had. Other than planning to the mall with Colin and viewing Mike for your very first time this summertime (he briefly visited from higher education), I barely did anything at all except the Giant Panda concert, which was miserable on the grounds that on the list of most people I used to be with ignored me the whole time and I failed to know the opposite one especially well in the least. I did get some great birthday presents,office Home And Student 2010 serial key, nevertheless (bucks,office Professional 32 bit, a present card , some even more bucks), along with the cake my mother purchased was fairly scrumptious, but for the most portion, it had been just kind of a downer. I seem forward to Friday, once the in fact celebration form thing is, getting a good deal much more pleasant.

    Sunday I went to Colin’s and in actual fact did homework after which ate some chili and about 501 rolls on the grounds that chili on the roll is scrumptious. We also watched the newest Jersey Shore … I’m seriously puzzled about how the seasons operate; is this nonetheless just the 2nd period that’s heading on? Anyway, that was rather cool. Aside from every little thing I already outlined, I very a lot did almost nothing about the weekend. Ah well.

    Currently, immediately after acquiring rushed to homeroom in the morning to have my long-awaited Galaxy office vital, I used to be advised by Mrs. Burger that she however failed to hold the very last few keys crafted however. I used to be devastated, as well as irritated, because I was hunting ahead to acquiring my personal main all weekend. However, all was excellent, considering almost all people else has a essential,discount win 7 pro, so they can let me in if no one else is currently in there.

    I only had 4 intervals of class at this time, leaving 1st, 6th, 7th, and 8th zero cost. I’m commencing to possess problems reconciling myself together with the thought of the library, due to the fact all my free time that in days previous can be invested with the library, is now spent completely inside Galaxy workplace. I system on secretly transporting blankets and this sort of into the office ASAP so as to create naps and cuddling alot more likely.

    Oh my goodness, I have to discontinue speaking regarding the office. My courses weren’t that helpful at the moment, even though. My only complex class thus far is AP Lit, and that’s only ’cause we’ve got an essay due tomorrow (these days ,microsoft office 2007 Ultimate product key, in actual fact) and our Bible undertaking because of on Monday. All my other classes are electives and so quick.

    Honestly, practically almost nothing fascinating took place at this time. I’m not even guaranteed why I am composing this. Hmmmm. Oh! I’ve gotten all sorts of things in on time up to now. Not tough,microsoft windows 7 home premium x86, taking into consideration we have only had 3 days of school. But nonetheless. Alright we’re accomplished here.

    This was meant for a reply to munch17. Nice post…..def. makes the non trade look better. I agree with not trading for Penner still would have been nice to get rid of AK46 though because I do not want to see him back next season.

     

     

    The Scott Gomez line………..where wingers go to die.

    Ok time to get back to playing hockey. I understand people freaking out because we didnt move on deadline day but time to move on. Looking at last year’s team who went deep in the playoffs, I don’t see why we couldnt do the same this year.

    Here’s the 6 D’s from last year’s run :

    Bergeron-Hamrlik

    Gill-Georges

    Subban-Spacek

    OByrne (Markov was injured)

    This year we have :

    Subban(with one year under his belt)-Sopel (Cup Winner)

    Gill (Cup Winner)-Wizniewski(MAB 2.0)

    Webber-Mara

    Picard (Spacek\Markov\Gorges injured)

    On forward we had :

    AK-Plecky-Cammy

    Pouliot-Gomez-Gionta

    Darche-Metropolit-Moen

    Moore-Lapierre-Pyatt

    This year we have :

    Halpern-Plecky-Cammy

    Pacioretty-Gomez-Gionta

    Pouliot-Desharnais-White

    Moen-Eller-AK

    In nets we have Price compared to last year’s Halak.

    What makes this year’s team so weak to the eyes of most of the fans ?

  11. likehoy says:

    how much more creative can you get with draft picks than drafting price 5th overall, then subban as a 2nd rounder? 

    ya we missed out on the big forward so far, but we’ve had some pretty creative picks down the line. (aside from mcdonagh/fischer)

    - Gomez is holding down the “overpaid” button

    Any news on the Guardian Project? Who cares!!!

  13. GrimJim says:

    I heard something interesting last night from Jay Feaster on the radio here in Calgary. Trade deadline day is the only day of the season where teams are allowed to do “paper” recall transactions, where a player gets sent down to the farm on paper but doesn’t have to actually travel to the farm team. The reason why Feaster mentioned this is that the Flames did a paper transaction for Mikael Backlund, so that if they get eliminated from the NHl playoffs before their farm team is eliminated from the AHL playoffs, they could send Backlund down to play and get more development/experience. Maybe the Habs did the same thing for Ryan White, sending him down and bringing him back on paper so he could qualify for the AHL playoffs if need be.

  14. HardHabits says:

    I don’t agree with MA and observer. They agree with me. There in lies the difference.

    I still hold out hope that AK gets traded over the summer and not resigned. I still hold out hope that the Habs will start moving UFA’s before the end of their contracts for assets such as prospects and picks.

    If in 13/14 the Habs are not a true contender then it is my hope that Cammy, Gionta and Gomez (if he isn’t already gone by then) get moved to other teams for said picks and prospects.

    The only thing that pisses me off worse than the A. Kostitsyn draft pick is the Habs allowing 11 UFAs go for nothing in return.

    The CH is not a magical super-hero “S” that once on a player’s chest turns them into a super-hockey player.

    The illusion that the Habs are the greatest is just that. The era ended in 1980 with the loss of Bowman. Corey furthered the damage. Thankfully we had Serge Savard for a while.

    The Habs have mismanaged assets for too long now and have lost big time on their investments. Until I see a turn around in this regard I will continue to post comments that many of the so called “trolls” will enjoy reading and agree with.

    Last years team beat Washington because of miraculous goaltending. Itll happen but its not something you can bank on year to year. Montreal were deserving winners against Pittsburgh but not so against Washington in the first round. Plus I think the 3rd line of Laps and Moore was huge for the habs. I dont know if this edition of the 3rd line will be as good.

                               AK 46 – 4 years – 273 games -79 goals .29 goals per game.

    Penner is big and plays big when he wants to.

    AK plays big when he wants to.

    Not sure moving AK and paying a big price for JP would have been a good idea.
