    This team has the players to compete with any team in the league, at this point im completely baffled, by play-offs our line up should look similar to this, its well balanced and deep at every position... Patches - Eller - Gallagher Galch - Plek - Parenteau Bournival - Desharnais - Weise Prust - DeLaRose - SmithPelley Mitchell - Malhotra - Flynn Markov - Subban Beaulieu - Petry Emelin/Gonchar - Gilbert Tinordi - Pateryn GO HABS GO!
  • Comment on About last night … (west coast insomnia, Eller? Eller! ELLER!!! edition) (2015-03-06 09:59:52)
    while I understand DD has significantly outplayed Lars at centre... i still cant help but think it is painfully obvious that DD is much better at wing than eller is... for the TEAM to have the most success the starting C's should be; Galch, Plek, Eller, JDLR in that order... fill in the wingers however you would like... the fact is we are one (maybe two) scoring wingers from being a legitimate threat. We have a chance on any given night though thanks to CP31. Last 10 and playoffs, like to see something along these lines shaping up; Patch - Galch - Gallagher DD - Pleks - DSP Prust - Eller - Parenteau Mitchell - JDLR - Weise Bournival - Malhotra - Flynn Any of the bottom two lines (4 and 5) can be interchangeable based on injuries and/or cold/hot streaks. I dont think we are at contender level yet, but definitely getting close. McCarron, Sherbak, Reway, Andrighetto, Lehkonen are likely to produce atleast one legit top 6 and one bottom 6 I would say.

  • Comment on Habs acquire Oilers defenceman Jeff Petry and Sabres forwards Brian Flynn and Torrey Mitchell at NHL trade deadline (2015-03-02 15:43:27)
    lol no kidding not saying I hate the trades by any means, kind of indifferent really (although I like the Petry deal). Just wondering how its all going to come together ... GO HABS GO!

    What is the lineup going to look like a week from now? Really confused ha ha Thomas, Bournival and Tinordi to the minors? Patches - DD - Gally Eller - Plek - Galch how do they fit JDLR, DSP, MM, Prust, PAP, Weise, Flynn and Mitchell into the lineup now?? seems like its going to be an odd looking bottom six, or possibly load up one line and make three balanced lines?!

    The reason this makes sense for the Oilers.... Eller and Parenteau combined replace the offense Eberle creates. Emelin or whomever they receive on D is an experience NHL defensemen capable of top 5 minutes on a good NHL team. Edmonton needs prospects on D... maybe Fucale instead. If im montreal no way I make this trade for Galchenyuk... if Montreal is as bas as Edmonton, maybe... Also, Galchenyuk and Eberle arent good comparables. GO HABS GO!

    Maybe we cant trade Emelin, but its just another option we have now. I would say that habs can afford to give up any of Emelin, Gilbert, Weaver and one of Tinordi/Pateryn/Thrower depending on the return. Along with forwards... GO HABS GO!

    Eller + Parenteau + Emelin + defensive prospect to EDM Eberle to MTL Max - DD - Eberle Galch - Plek - Gally Prust - JDLR - DSP Weise - Malhotra - Flynn Thomas - Bournival It may take a bit more or some tweaking, but I think MTL finally has the pieces to make this kind of deal GO HABS GO!

    Posted this in the wrong thread, my apologies. Love the trade… 1) the habs are deep enough in prospects that they could afford this trade comfortably 2) TBL, NYR, DET all made deals to improve 3) Look at the play-off depth with expanded rosters; markov – subban beaulieu – Gonchar Emelin – Petry Tinordi – Pateryn Weaver – Gilbert 4) With tinordi and pateryn BOTH on one-way deals next season, this is excellent depth to compare these guys against 5) Gives flexibility to include Gilbert, Emelin and/or Tinordi/Pateryn in a deal for the right price! Welcome to MTL, Jeff, get ready for play-off hockey! GO HABS GO!

  • Comment on Pacioretty-Desharnais reunited on first line at practice; de la Rose called back up from Hamilton (2015-02-05 21:33:39)
    As much as I dont like all the bad vibes surrounding Evander Kane, I really cant help but think he is the ideal trade target for the habs. The fact is Kane has had rumours about a bad attitude for several years now and even during this time has produced at over a 20g 20a pace. He also has a CAREER avg of .615 ppg or 25g25a-50pts/82games. It would be expensive, but I think the habs are ideal trading partners with the Jets. Eller + Pateryn + 2nd (maybe have to use a first if bidding war) I would think a package similar to this would be very tempting at least, and the habs could afford to part with something like this if the return is a player like Evander Kane. I like our line up alot; Patch - Galchenyuk - Sekac Kane - Plekanec - Gallagher Prust - Desharnais - Parenteau Bournival - Dumont - Weise Malhotra Obviously the offseason goal would be re-signing Galchenyuk to a good deal, upgrading the 3rd line and the #4 or #6 defense. But I certainly like the direction, especially with De La Rose, Hudon, Andrighetto, McCarron, and Scherbak on fwd and Tinordi, Beaulieu, Dietz, and Thrower on D I think the next 3-5 are bright for adding 1-2 rookies a season. I think we are just opening a 5 year window where we can legitimately contend. GO HABS GO!
