- Comment on Subban, Habs submit salary figures; Lacroix new assistant coach (2014-07-30 12:23:56)
Ramage thing happened in my neighbourhood. It's a winding road that ppl drive at high speeds. I have to drive it daily, and hate it cause its dangerous. Add liquor and I believe it had been raining (?). Anyways, no way a person doesn't crash there if drunk! I believe he did serve time in jail. It's sad a life was taken, but he served his time and is allowed to move on. He did this as a retired player (after a function they had been attending- no excuse still). I think his life is a good example of a "ah nothing will happen" bad decision that can change multiple lives forever. A lesson kids can learn! And outside of this incident...I am sure as a Dman and hockey guy that he has lots to offer.
- Comment on Best wishes from HIO to young Habs fan battling meningitis (2014-07-30 10:06:49)
MTL'S OFFER IS NOT LOW BALLING. Understand they aren't asking him to take a 8 yr contract with a cap hit of $5.25. They are saying that for this upcoming season, RFA PK salary should be over $5M. That is 100% fair. And whenever they do sign their long term contract we will see that the first year's salary will be in the $5M range with increases every year after that. If anything PK's camp is a tad silly in asking for $8.5M for next season. But I guess they are saying they feel PK's first year should start a lot higher then in the $5M range. That, I personally don't agree with. Still not worried. This will get done.

WOW. As a mom of a 14 yr old, I can't imagine going thru that as a family. So sudden and shocking. Awesome to hear he is on the road to recovery. All the best Alex! I'll be praying for a quick recovery
- Comment on Eller agrees to four-year, $14-million deal with Habs (2014-07-24 15:40:53)
I thought he was worth $2.5. I thought he could get $3M per for 3 yrs. Seeing how MTL locked him up for his first 2 UFA years, that extra .5M is amazing bargain. the AVV sounds high right now, but he is getting paid $2.5 for the next 2 seasons. Totally fair. Salary jumps in his 2 UFA years. Expecting he will develop, MTL saved money signing him now then in 2 yrs. In 2 yrs with market value he would have gotten more probably.
- Comment on Leaving Habs was ‘family decision’ for Brisebois (2014-07-24 13:17:52)
HH...one thing about when you compare salaries, I think it's important to look at the position the players play. I think it's hard to compare what Price makes to what PK may make due to them playing diff positions. Is Price one of the top goalies? Is he paid as one? That's what Price probably looks at. Is PK a top 10 dman in the league? Should he be paid as one? If answer is yes, and the top 5 goalies make less then the top 5 dman....Price, or others in the room, I think/hope get that. Also the time the contracts are signed have a lot to do with it. You know the cap will be going up, you know that if you want to sign a young player into their UFA years....it's a different contract then signing an aging vet who maybe is making less, but really is getting personally paid more then he should (i.e. extra year). People will always get jealous, players too I am sure. But if they think it through that only thing PK should be compared to is what the market is for a top Norris winning Dman. I would love to see him sign at 7.5-7.75M cap hit. Something like, $5M, $6M, $7.5M, $8M, $8.5, $9, $9, $9. Like honestly how can PK say he is worth more then that?

My offer would be 2 yrs at $5.5M-5.75M total to Eller For PK, it would be $7.5M per year for 8 yrs
- Comment on Habs, Eller far apart heading into salary arbitration (2014-07-23 15:28:35)
Eller would have been a top 6 player for this team already if he didn't show his disapproval of being played as a winger. If he had switched to winger...he'd be getting his $3M, if not more, this contract. We are weak at wing, have been the last 2 seasons. He could have been the answer to the wing spot with Patches/DD. I know, I know many of you think DD is garbage and that Eller would have more pts if he played DD minutes/linemates. Of course no one can know cause it never happened. But when the opportunity came for him to have a bigger role on this team, via playing the wing, he basically refused. He didn't want to play there, made it clear to media, and you could tell he wasn't trying on the ice and thus forcing the team to put him back on 3rd line. I use to think Martin was nuts when he stated....I don't know what I have in Eller. And here we are 2-3 yrs later and the Habs are still not sure what they have. He may be more of a Pouliot then a top 6 player. Has the tools and everyone keeps waiting to see it come together!
- Comment on Habs’ Bergevin beaten out for NHL’s GM of the Year Award (2014-06-25 14:17:53)
Pretty sure that one team drafting late in 1st round that said they wouldn't ever draft him as he goes against the type of players they are looking for in the organization...is MTL. So ppl stop wishing it ain't happening! Wonder if MB would have ever drafted PK if he was at the helm that year?
- Comment on (AUDIO) Habs sign Markov to three-year contract; Burns named to Hall of Fame (2014-06-23 14:35:14)
I'm happy. at 5.75M it gives us cap room. The fact is he is our 2nd best dman right now. And at his calaber, that's cheap! No one knows what will happen in 3 yrs. He may still be our 2nd best dman!! The fact is we can really REALLY use a healthy Markov for at least another 2 yrs while the kids develop their NHL game. If they unseed him in the depth chart...GREAT, that's what I want to see happen. Then we can worry about his final contract year. But then again, in 3 yrs he may still be one of our top dmen, and it may be a player like Gorges or Emelin that gets moved for one of the young guys. But lets first see them become regulars in the NHL before we say we don't need Markov, Gorges or Emelin. Great move!
- Comment on NHL, Habs release complete 2014-15 schedule (2014-06-23 12:24:18)
MrHabby....I can bitch all I want. I was paying $2/month for RDS. That's $24 for a full year. Now I have to pay $25/month during the hockey season to watch the games? And I shouldn't bitch. You must work for Rogers and got a raise or something. Not everyone can afford to pay that much. And what if you aren't on Rogers? I have Shaw. Does NHL Center ICE guarantee all 82 hab games?
