- Comment on Best wishes from HIO to young Habs fan battling meningitis (2014-07-29 13:08:51)
Very happy to hear Alex is doing better. Thank you for putting up an update. Things like this show you whats truly important in the world. Family and friends. Love. People. Finding things in common with others as opposed to seeing our differences. But MOST importantly how great Habs fans are..... and how much more important the Montreal Canadiens are than any other team on the planet.... Its really quite fascinating to see what this blog has developed in the last 5 years. Very impressive. We have an excellent community here at Habsinsideout.

The current team must extend a "qualifying offer" to a restricted free agent to retain negotiating rights to that player. Qualifying offers are for one year contracts. The minimum salary for the qualifying offer depends on the player's prior year salary. Players who earned less than $660,000 in the previous season must be offered 110 percent of last season's salary. Players making up to $1 million must be offered 105 percent. Players making over $1 million must be offered 100 percent

He was their GM for the last 3 seasons. second youngest in OHL history. I dont want any Leafs taint on our team this season....

10 million a season? Lunacy.

@JOHN SMIDT(HABSGOD) My thought and prayers are with you and your family. Especially with your son Alex. When I was 18 I had bacterial meningitis. I am lucky and it worked out as well as it could for me. So today I am going to go out and golf. Spend time with a few friends. Enjoy this beautiful day and live as much as I can. In the back of my head I will be thinking positive things for Alex in his Habs pyjamas. I have my Habs playoff towel from 2002 when we beat the Bruins in game 6. Yannick Perreault scored the winning goal. I use it when I golf, and today every time I see it I will think of Alex wearing the CH on his pyjamas. I hope my wonderful day and positive thoughts will inspire whatever forces we have in this world to give Alex as many more as possible.

Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley cup with a team where NO ONE had more than 30 goals in the regular season. Their number one center had 70 points. They had only 3 other players over 40 points, and oneover 50....

over 21 minutes per game regular season. over 23 minutes per game playoffs. We won 56 games last season. Anyone who thinks Josh Gorges wasnt a VERY large part of that is in denial and due for a wake up or just clueless. BUT, 4 million is a lot. MG thinks he can use that moeny better somewhere else. But make no mistake about it. We lost a leader. A guy who sets a great example. Blocks more shots than Price (not literally) and gave everything for this team, this city and its fans. We are not a better team without him. But his cost was too high. We need to score a lot more. Thats the focus for the most part.

Still plenty of time for teams to make changes. But I think a lot of people are discounting the Islanders. The East wont be that easy next season. I think this is how itll go: Pittsburgh Boston Tampa Montreal NY Islanders Philadelphia Washington Columbus
