- Comment on Cournoyer speaks about vacant Habs captaincy (2014-08-27 17:30:05)
Like you, I'm optimistic. But I think LA would have killed us. To me in the finals, although the scores of most of the games was close, it seemed that New York worked their tails off for everything they got and LA hardly broke a sweat. Habs match up better against Chicago - as you state.

I worries me that MB hasn't ruled them out.

"Bergevin confirmed that Thomas Vanek, George Parros and Douglas Murray won’t be back next season, but he hasn’t ruled out bringing back captain Brian Gionta, Mike Weaver or Francis Bouillon." Looks like 'smurf' is alive and well in habland. I understand the bigger guys mentioned not coming back, but Gio, Weaver and Frankie also need to go. Average age of 36 and height of 5'8" - time to open up some room on the roster for youth and size - IMO

Cammalleri back? That would would make sense with my jersey curse. I bought Richer's jersy - traded within the year, comes back a few years after. Bought a Cammi jersey - traded within the year, if Cammi signs again - jersey curse comes full circle. This is why I don't buy a Price or Subban - I don't tempt the jersey gods. Should've bought a Gomez a year or 2 before the buy-out, he could have come back as team motivational speaker.

Probably, but he is chasing a cup. I think we're closer than Boston to a cup. As chara goes so do the bruins and he isn't geting any younger.

Even though his legacy is tarnished by being a bruin, I wouldn't mind signing Iginla for 2 years at 7 million per year than Vanek at 7 and 7. Iggy's 'quiet' leadership could replace Gio and he'd bring a lot more to the ice. After the 2 years, PK is ready for the captaincy. PK, Gorges, Patch as A's until then.

The day after elimination is always tough. A little tougher this year because of the promising run only to fall short. In years past, I've found nature to have a grounding effect on days like today. I'll think I'll head out to Banff or Waterton and go on a little hike. Love our core and the new culture, Molson and MB have a plan and it's an exciting future for the Habs. This run has proved we are closer than we thought.

Gone are: Gio, Frankie, Murray, Parros, Markov if the term and $ are too much. Sell high on Pleks, Bourque and Toker

Completely different series with Price. He can play the puck and our d have more confidence to pinch. Say we took out lundqvist and Price was healthy. Mindset and momentum is reversed and we beat them in less than six. Pierre is an idiot

Agreed. Look at the bruins - thought it would be an easy road to the cup and now chara is a year older and they'll be further away next year than closer.
