Well it's starting to look like we may very well lineup with the Sens in round 1. Personally I would look forward to the chance at righting that wrong from 2 years ago. No reason to let the past continue to trouble us... And worst case scenario, another loss to the Sens would probably be the end of MT...

Stevereno posted a few interesting things further down which got me thinking about line combos: Paccioretty - Desharnais - Weise Galchenyuk - Plekanec - DSP Prust - Eller - Gallagher Finn - DLR - Mitchell OUT: Parenteau, Malhotra Markov - Subban Petry - Gilbert Beaulieu - Gonchar OUT: Emelin, Weaver

DD on the wing is an interesting move. I can see the potential for chemistry between him and Eller. Imagine they click. It would no longer be DD or Eller, but rather DD and Eller. Anyways, prior to seing this these were the lines I had concocted. Then again I don't think there is much chance of MT going this route: Gallagher-Galchenyuk-Paccioretty Ghetto-Plekanec-Weisse Prust-Eller-Sekac Parenteau-Desharnais-Bournival To me that is 3 very good lines (all of which have already shown some chemistry) and 1 that is probably missing a little spark, the Plekanec line. What do you think?

What do you think about mixing up the lines a bit? I think this would be the most dynamic and dangerous line we could assemble as of now: Paccioretty Galchenyuk Sekac Unfortunately that would leave a major drop off for the other lines. Something like: Desharnais Eller Gallagher Bournival Plekanec Parenteau Prust Malhotra Weise ... not too inspiring

Some interesting stats on Weise since coming to Montreal: last year 17GP 3G, last year playoffs 16GP 3G, this year 17GP 4G. That's pretty consistent and puts him on track for a healthy 12-15 G/yr. Nice contribution from a 3rd/4th liner!

Here's a little summary of MB's work so far: 2014-2015 IN: Gonchar, Tangradi, 2nd, Parenteau, 5th, 5th, Sekac, Gilbert, Malhotra OUT: Moen, Budaj, Holland, Gorges, Briere, Leblanc, White, Gionta, Vanek, Parros, Bouillon, Murray 2013-2014 IN: Vanek, 5th, Weaver, Weise, Parros, Thomas, Briere, Murray OUT: Collberg, 2nd, 5th, Diaz, 7th, Kristo, Ryder, Armstrong, Kaberle, Weber, Halpern 2012-2013 IN: Drewiske, Ryder, 3rd, Tokarski, Prust, Bouillon, Armstrong OUT: 5th, Cole, Desjardins, Gomez, Darche, Campoli, Nokelainen, Palushaj One of the things I really like about MB: He is very good at identifying the dead wood and has often been able to make a trade to salvage something useful in return. I wouldn't consider his trades as robberies but they have consistently been upgrades. I know he gets a bit of a bad rap for his contract renewals (Desharnais, Emelin, Moen, Prust, Gilbert...) but they have not been that bad. Maybe they might be a tiny bit overpriced but nothing too bad. Maybe they might be 1 year too long but I personally think he likes that extra year where he can then flip the guy to get back some future assets (e.g. Briere for Parenteau and a 5th). Also, that extra year creates a situation where the up-and-comer has to 'take' the roster stop, i.e. it's not just given to him, and that's another thing he likes. Anyways, just a few thoughts...

I never thought they could come back from that 32-0 deficit... but they did it! Never say die!

The X number of jobs created is seen, but that which is not seen is the X number of jobs that were not created when the neccessary taxes were collected. In other words, prior to being taxed the citizens would have used that money to purchase goods of their choice thereby creating jobs. (1) It is likely that the citizens would have spent the money on more productive things than what the government spent it on... (2) It can be argued that forcefully removing someone's property (taxing) is immoral just as stealing is immoral. http://mises.org/page/1434/That-Which-Is-Seen-and-That-Which-Is-Not-Seen

Oh, and how could I forget: Vanek! If we can squeeze him in under the cap then no-doubt, re-sign him. We will not be able to find a goal-scorer of his caliber. He makes the team much better. Forget about his terrible playoffs. His soft hands are his best weapon (stick handling in tight, great shot, good pass) but one of them was broken...
