- Comment on Habs trade Jiri Sekac to Anaheim for Devante Smith-Pelly (2015-02-24 12:00:34)
I instantly hated this trade, but quickly realized I can't back that up because I know NOTHING about DSP! I choose to trust a bunch of really smart hockey people to have a chance of being right about this. Good luck Jiri, and welcome DSP.

It's those kinds of decisions that prevent me from having real faith in Therrien - Markov instead of Sekac is just stupid

Wow Crane I hope you're wrong and we can chalk up the gloomy attitude to a couple of lousy games, but I'm really afraid that there is something to what you say. An honest assessment of this team tells me that we are several players away, including 2 or 3 real impact players (tough to get), from being a real conteder. The good news is that Tinordi, McCarron, Scherbak, maybe Hudon and DLR (and probably a few others that I'm missing) have a chance to really help. Price is a superstar, and Pacioretty, Subban, and Galchenyuk could join him in that category. You win with guys like Gallagher. With a few right moves and some luck, there could be real success on the horizon. Let's not jump out the window yet, it could be worse - we could be Leaf fans!

^^^my sentiments exactly

We'll agree to disagree on Dryden vs Roy. Perhaps we can agree that CP is a perfect blend of both - Roy's dominance when he was on his game combined with Dryden's calmness and class

I saw Dryden's entire career and in my opinion Patrick Roy was twice the goalie - Roy won 2 Stanley Cups by himself whereas Dryden had an all world team in front of him. Also, Dryden let in 2 stinkers during the the classic New Year's Eve game against the Russians - I can't let that go!

Holy smokes...no Galchenyuk for McDavid? I'd give up Chucky + to get the next Crosby. I've watched this kid since he was 4 and he's got all the markings of a franchise player. I love Chucky and have high hopes for him, but I'd make that trade

I'm a long time reader and very occasional poster - this one I couldn't resist. I live in Southern Ontario so I see a lot of Kessel, and I wouldn't take him on the Canadiens for DD let alone PK. A lazy, selfish player who is not committed to a team concept is the last thing Montreal needs. While I'm at it, a quick Marc Bergevin story; I was lucky enough to go to most of the World Jr games, and on Sunday I saw MB dashing through the main concourse at the ACC looking rather anxious. Apparently he was in need of a washroom, which he found and ran into - unfortunately it was the women's washroom! I caught his eye when he ran out after realizing his mistake, and we both chuckled.

Talent wise, comparing the NFL to the CFL is like comparing the NHL to the East Coast Oldtimer's Association. Further, if guys like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning were playing on a CFL field with those giant end zones they would be completely unstoppable. Having said that, I find the CFL quite entertaining and I enjoy it for what it is.

Gotta admit my faith in MB was wavering when he let this get to a hearing BUT...as Ron says the Canadiens have the best front office that they've had in decades
