    Size matters in hockey! It's a fact Mr Bergevin, we both know it. I back your long term plan completely, but please add some girth to this team next year. Prust cannot protect Dodge by himself much longer. I'm tired of watching the boys get sand kicked in their face for the last 5 yrs. until they make the rinks bigger we must conform to the way the game is now played. Let us all remember that Auriel Joliet played on the same dimensions. A Star in his day at 5'5" and 145 pounds.

    Not crapping on them. Love them as much as anyone. Just a reality check. Eagerly waiting to see how we handle ourselves in those buildings

    I like and feel good about what MB can do for this organization for the years to come. But aside from Prust and a few front office moves, he hasn't done anything yet. PK is his first real test. He can't blow this! His legacy may depend on it. He can't trade him and has to sign ASAP. Trading is not an option. We all learned a huge lesson after Chelios and only a fool would repeat that again and MB doesn't appear to be a fool (don't prove me wrong MB). Get this done and get this done fast. It's not about making a point, it's about getting him Signed. If its a longer term deal that's gets us there, so be it. Just because the previous management gave bridge deals to 67 and 31 doesn't mean this group has to follow. The previous management was a disaster so lets not choose to endorse about 1 of the only intelligent things they did. PK is a rare breed that combines talent, speed, passion and complete lack of fear...... In the last 2 decades can you remember anyone else who possessed these talents wearing the CH? No, me neither.........

    Do we have anymore gems like Palushaj in the minors?

    Trade Subban? Is everyone nuts? Last time we panicked and moved a great young d-man was summer of 1990. That guy went on to 19 more years and a hall of fame career.

    Ooy! I'll say 1 thing.......if any of you out there didn't see this coming, you can't know much about this game. It's pure science. The rinks didn't get bigger , therefore the players had to. Nuff said! Happy Holidays

    Darche!!!! 2 points in 30 games. Double digit minutes per game. Need I say more. Isn't that enough to satisfy the Francophone fans and media? Maybe we outta bring Pierre Dagenais out of retirement for the shootouts. If we do, maybe we can hire a coach and GM that speak "Winner" in any language. This franchise has become irrelevant around the league. This game has evolved and we have missed the boat! Clean house and put the right people in place once and for all. This has become a joke !

    Question? If Jag-off Gauthier let's Martin go yesterday, why didn't his brain kick in 2 weeks ago and grab Muller before Carolina did? 2nd question? How hard is it to build an energetic tough 4th line? Weber-Nokolainen-Darche Not even minor level!!!!!!!!!!
