Do you really think you develop players like Crosby or Malkin? Crosby etc are generational players that develop no matter what the coach does in front of them because they already know the game better than the coaches do. Therrien couldn't develop young talent that needs it if his family's life was on the line. He can be gone soon enough

Therrien did get 100 points this year, but IMO it was fewer than they should have had. Too many just out there decisions in games with defence pairings, players on the ice in overtime, PK and Eller benchings, the outright refusal to look at Tinordi, Pateryn or Beaulieu seriously until game 81. It's luck to have 100 pts right now and that luck is named Carey Price (and a few others)

Your assessment of maybe not giving up enough is a bit off IMO. Ill try to leave the homer glasses off for a second and just say that players of PK's caliber are generally traded in one of two ways. 1) for a first, a top end prospect and a youngish roster player. (this is usually for salary dumping) 2) one for one (picks maybe too) and the only one from the Oilers in that regard for me is RNH or Hall. Eberle is good, but small and we don't need more of that going forward. Not when you're the one looking to move the player for specific needs. Then again, with Therrien at the helm, do we really want him to try and develop more high end talent since he has dropped the ball so badly with PK, Galchenyuk, Beaulieu and Tinordi?

Subban is the new ironnman for the Habs now (I kid you not)

An uncalled stick to the eye of the captain helped a lot too ;)

So with Bishop done for the regular season; if Tampa loses their next three and Detroit wins out, we face Detroit. Sound about right?

Of course Beau will look like crap.... the coaching staff is feeding him to the hawks.

Does anyone know what Galchenyuk's highest ice time has been to this point in his career? Just in one game, for example 18:26 is the most he has played in a single game

None of the players on those teams are signing a contract after a lockout, with a new heightened salary cap, and enforcement of front end loaded deals to lower the cap hits either. How can you make comparisons and call people idiots when the circumstances couldn't be more different? If the situations were reversed you're damn right they would get that much or more.

Another small guy??? no way. If a trade doesn't include Hall then forget it.
