- Comment on Leaving Habs was ‘family decision’ for Brisebois (2014-07-24 13:41:37)
Anyone who thinks that PK would take anything but 8+million for 7 or 8 years is delusional...the Rangers or Leafs or 27 other teams would pay that money in a heartbeat and so should the Canadiens. Why would PK take a lower base salary and try to make it up with bonuses when he can do better? Remember, this is a business, as our own Mr. Bergevin proved a couple of years ago when he played hardball and stuck to his guns on a 2 year bridge contract. The Canadiens won a short term victory, and now it's PK's turn.

Sorry, but you seem to be under the illusion that the NHL is anything but a business...Kane and Toews did exactly what they should have done. Next time your boss offers you a big fat raise and you tell him that you're not worth the money he's offering, let me know.

I agree it's time Galchenyuk moved to centre but I would rather see either Plekanic or DD go - Eller proved in the playoffs that he is more valuable moving forward. I love Plek, but he's not our future; he would also probably fetch a nice return

guilty as charged...it's time to admit MT 2.0 is significantly better than the earlier version.
- Comment on Habs’ Price skates in full equipment, but Therrien says he’s not ready to play (2014-05-27 15:30:34)
While I agree that Toker has been playing well and the forwards are largely invisible, I can't support any statement that begins with "We don't need Carey."

Correct on all counts, Hobie
- Comment on Habs get day off after loss to Bruins (2014-03-13 14:05:23)
Not that Timo needs any support, but I'm going to give it to him anyway. Therrien has got to go, and go now. This team is regressing and seems completely disorganized on the ice. More concerning to me, however, is the damage Therrien is doing to the younger players - Eller is totally lost, Galchenyuk is not progressing as he should, and PK is MT's favourite whipping boy. If you agree that MT is not a good coach, and have any thoughts that he is actually damaging our young assets, then he simply has to go - I don't care who replaces him.

Yikes Eddie my first child was also born a few months prior to the '93 cup - I also agree with everything you said. Except I'm one of those guys who think Therrien is evil so I would have thrown him to the wolves also
- Comment on Habs’ Subban, Price headed to Sochi; Galchenyuk has broken hand (2014-01-08 12:58:33)
I don't hate McGuire like I do Stock or Milbury, but I'm thrilled Geoff Molson was smart enough to choose someone else for GM. McGuire's first move would have been to trade PK to Edmonton for Yak, which would have been a disaster IMO.

I would love Lucic on my team but as a Bruin I despise him...The Emelin injury, his run at Miller...don't forget he essentially ended Komisarek's career by beating him mercilessly! Marchand's just a punk who can't really even play...he's perfect for Boston.
