^^^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!
- Comment on Habs vs. Predators preview: Carey Price will start in goal (2015-01-20 17:02:00)
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

Thank god! My faith in MB is restored.

Clearly you are in the camp that doesn't value PK too highly - a franchise player for 2 players who nobody will remember in 3 years is grossly insufficient in my opinion. If the Habs are determined to part ways with Subbann, a mistake in my opinion, they need a young superstar in return.

Ian, I could not disagree with you more! I think MB is playing a very dangerous game, and I'm shocked that this wasn't settled prior to the hearing. We haven't had a player like this in years, and we need to pay him what any other team in the league would - 8 year deal averaging $8 mil. If MB doesn't lock PK up long term, I think he's made a terrible mistake. C'mon Marc - pay up!!!
