Great Season boys!! So Proud of ma team! Here are some of my thought; -Gionta - it's been nice knowing ya, and I'd hate to see ya go, but go have fun in the sun with Gomer. -In terms of our next captain? ugh..well, I know everyone says Gorges, and I love the guy, but I would hate seeing our Capitano get plastered everytime he goes into the boards. He plays with his heart on his sleeve, and I"d love to see him as our future captain. Anyone think Max would be good, cuz he'd be one of my picks. PK? -So, I wouldn't sign either Vanek or Gio, so that leaves a top 6 position available for a LW and RW. Hey, you know who I also loved and am sure would want to be back: Cammalleri. There's our LW. For a RW I'd take a shot at Nicolai Kulemin. He could be a steal for around 3 - 3.5 mill. Big, fast, good hands - needs a change of scenery from T., considering he once hit 30 goals. Not the leadership we need, but definitely makes it tougher to play againt us. And he's 29. -Brooks Orpik. Hated the guy, but gritty. We might need another steady veteran Dman, and I think there's gonna be some major changes in Pittsburgh, and I don't see him being there. He'd be the kind of example I'd want Tinordi to learn from. -Bring back PK, Markov, Eller, Weise. I'd love for Weaver to return, but something tells me he's looking elsewhere. Leblanc - man oh man, we should've picked Kreider..oh well, it is what it is..but he's also a RFA and something needs to be done with him. I think some guys like White, Parros, Blunden and Dubnyk should be retained for that extra depth..Parros if only for his class, White could get better, Blunden is a work in progress and Doobie just for his size (who knows, maybe some training session with Stephane Waite might turn him into something). But I think there's lots of good veterans out there to fill in some of the holes left by a captain. A guy like Marcel Goc might be a good fit here. Go Habs Go!

If the rumors about Briere wanting out are true, I'd see if Washington would want him for Martin Erat. He's the type of LW/RW we could use on this team right now
- Comment on Liveblog: Game 39 – Canadiens win 2-1 in Shootout (2013-12-28 23:44:53)
fellow Canadienites... I don't know if this could be a stat or not, well..nowadays anything can be a stat...but I'd like to know if someone knows of a game where either Price or Budaj had been pulled? How many teams, if any, have gone this season up to date without having to have pulled their starting goaltender? I just think it speaks of the quality of team goaltending in this regards..otherwise it might just be, well...a useless stat! Jazaks

Here's a fresh idea for the power play: PK - Eller - Briere Markov-Diaz Patches-Pleks-Gallagher PK - beaulieu

So anyone else think habs will likely not make playoffs next season? Every team in our old division has a serious sniper; kessel, eriksson, vanek, ryan. Tinordi's our biggest d and all the other teams have someone his size or even 2-3, but are much better. Ya we have pk, but chara, phaneuf and karlsson are either comparable or better. All the other teams have a bigger, meaner, forward group than ours. Sorry to say it folks, but we're gonna get our proverbial asses kicked next year. I love me habs, but this team - and fans - should expect and hope to win in 2017. I think we shouldn't get our hopes up until 2017, and I've already reserved any championship hopes till then. Why? For one thing, since it's been so long since montreal had lay won a cup, for us fans it'll be worth the wait to win it in Toronto's Centennial year. Also, it'll give enough time for the group of youngsters to fully develop that by then they should be well-accustomed to the rigors of the nhl and have reached maximum output. Price will either be a solid steady veteran star goalie OR fucale will be an up and coming star. I also think by then 1 major trade will occur involving a superstar player. There's so many other variables that obviously have to occur, but this season.. my hopes are really dim, unless MB moves for someone who can really snipe. I hate the leafs, but the moves they've made this off season I wouldn't be surprised if they make a cup run. Man do I detest saying that! I hope I'm wrong about almost everything I've said, but some things aren't that hard to figure out. Is Ryan clowe the answer? No I don't think so, although he'd certainly help the present group. Would clutterbuck have been a good pick up? Certainly, but I don't know how much of an impact he's going to have compared to niederreiter in minny(nino is Good!). I would've been inclined to offer louis and a 2nd to either NY or minny for any of those players. So who's out there via trade to improve this teams scoring output? I'd say one would have to get creative and risk losing some to get more. If I had to offer some players, I'd be looking at surplus positional players and expiring contracts. Names that come to mind are deshairnas, markov, gionta, LeBlanc, moen. Any combination of those players plus future Draft picks should garner some interest..I would hope anyways. We'll also have to see what happens cap wise with PK and eller and any other players coming up in the ranks like the Gals, Tinman and Beaulieu.

Hey...I dunno if anyone can help me with this, it's a bit off topic to what you guys are discussing, but I thought I'd give it a shot: I'd like to know the name of the song played at the beginning of most overtime games at the Bell Center this season. I think it's a house or dance or trance or something of those genres type of a song, whatever it is it really got me pumped up! I've exhausted myself for a couple hours now - well, weeks really - trying to even find a clip of it on the internet, so finally I found it on Youtube. I tried using the SoundHound app but it won't recognize it because of stupid Gary Galley & Bob Cole's commentating overtop of it. Here's the link, it's at 1:46:11. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrX_JCfKoRQ ...It's the game against the Penguins, remember that one, 7-6 in OT?! Thanks to anyone who can help me out in any way. I'm not sure how I can receive notices from anyone replying to this post, so i'll just throw out an email of mine if anyone finds anything out firstname.lastname@example.org . Merci!

- this team was better last season than their record indicated. With that being said, is this team able to win it all this year? Standings don't mean shit..that being said, do we mortgage the future for 1 or 2 key players. This Draft is going to be deep.. could pick up more than a few gems, but then again this year could be ours..if sending picks is the option I'd like to see Ryan Clowe.. he's big,nasty and just the type of physical player we need to face the bruins, and add Morrow to that as well..bye bye to gionta, a 2nd and a 3rd and weber..I propose trying eller at that point on PPs
- Comment on Desharnais gets four-year, $14-million deal (2013-03-15 09:40:06)
Either some of you must've been very bad at math in school or you're on crack! Ellers not going anywhere. This deal is not about the configuration of our centers, rather, the due reward of a player in his prime who went undrafted and has worked his tail off in the face of adversity because of his size and had succeeded on every level and had played at a very minimal salary, plus, has ridiculous chemistry with one of our key core players in Max pacioretty ever since they laid eyes on one another in Hamilton and its been lights out for these 2 ever since. Eller will get his contract soon and there's no reason to suggest that either him or pleky will be moved until at least galchenyuks entry level is up in 3 years... so just chill, alright?
- Comment on Habs deal Cole to Stars for Ryder (2013-02-26 20:01:20)
Oh yeah and did I mention the prior chemistry with pleks and markov? Should be good for the power play. And that 3rd rounder will be made to gold by this new front office in a deep Draft.
