Bourque is sliding his way down the lineup. Next stop, the pressbox!

Matty, in her post, hitgurl actually used monster as an adjective. Monstrous would have been more appropriate I suppose, but it's a hockey forum, not a literary masterpiece, so perhaps the bar should be lowered a bit.

I would pay out that money in a heartbeat. PK's best years are in front of him and those four first round picks would be a roll of the dice. I'm pretty sure the majority of NHL GMs would concur.

Let's wait and see what Vanek does for us in the playoffs before we start talking about lucrative 8 year deals being offered up. I like what I've seen so far, but is he really a franchise type guy going forward?

And by last night, I meant the past few nights. If managed correctly, he could prove useful in the playoffs when the whistles are put away and the rough stuff gets ramped up.

I have to admit that Murray did his job last night. MT was smart enough to use him under 15min. Still, with the playoffs approaching, I'd like to see more Tinordi and some more rest for the older guys so they have something left in the tank when they need it most.
- Comment on Habs will start Budaj in goal against Bruins (2014-03-24 12:26:32)
I think starting Budaj is the right move, but playing Murray with Subban is bordering lunacy. Douglas Murray should play no more than 12 minutes per game. We were pinned deep almost every time he was on the ice Saturday! It's good to hear Georges is back skating and holding a stick with that hand. When he is back, Murray should take a permanent seat in the press box. As for Eller, let him sit as a precaution and let White get in there for a bit more toughness. A game of watching from above could be beneficial for Lars. I'd also like to see Bournival get in there for the Buffalo game. He will provide some much needed spark in a back to back scenario.
- Comment on Brière agrees to two-year deal with Canadiens (2013-07-04 22:38:56)
"The Predators lost out on Briere -- and not just him. A source told ESPN.com that Nashville had also spoken to Boston about Tyler Seguin before the Bruins shipped him to Dallas in a blockbuster deal Thursday. Nashville needs to find offense somewhere" -Lebrun Sounds like the perfect dumping ground for DD. Maybe we could ask for a prospect like Watson (big LW) and a bottom pairing D-man with some size like Klein.

Bergevin made the right move with PK. He continued the bridge deal precedent, which all GMs should adhere to. PK will get his money but Bergevin made the cap more manageable while bad contracts expired. Moving forward, there will be lots of great D prospects to evaluate and dole out dollars to. Bergevin will be able to point to the Subban contract as reason for guys like Beaulieu and Tinordi to be more patient and not try to cash in on the 2nd contracts. (assuming they meet or exceed expectations)
