I fully concur, especially regarding Bournival replacing Prust to join Eller and Galchenyuk. Ali B.

I'd venture to guess that most folks here would prefer to see Gallagher not to regress while playing with DD (Gomez comes to mind). Let's hope for the best and a good line combination. Ali B.

Fully agree. No sense in postponing the inevitable for fear of losing some scoring potential now - we're not a contender this year, but we will not be a contender in the coming years if we hang on to all the players we now have. Cheers, Ali B.

SH If you go by the stats, yes you'll be right about Max, however since sometime last season his game has changed completely, i.e. he has become strictly a perimeter guy despite his size and the teams and fans expectations of him. Accordingly, his production now sucks and I also can not see any improvements in the future (unless he makes drastic changes in his current style of play but that appears unlikely). From that perspective, IMHO it would be better for the team to try to trade him while he's worth for a 1st or a 2nd rounder (or maybe a 2nd & 3rd or something like that). The past is the past and not the future the way I see it. Ali B.

I hear that 2013 draft is fairly deep. Anyone with me for being sellers? LOL Me thinks at least thanks to MT we're moving in the right direction (no offence to pink coolaid drinking hockey gurus tho). Ali B.

Some people may contend that the snowman may look better than me! LOL :) Cheers, Ali B.

Yup! I saw it and I share your opinion (but you already knew that right?) Cheers, Ali B.

You beat me to it Timo; that's how I feel most of the time. cheers, Ali B.

Regarding comments (hints?) made by Stevie Y & MT and other folks on PK chances making the team, this editorial was in The Province (BC) 3 days ago: http://blogs.theprovince.com/2013/11/12/editorial-with-p-k-subban-what-are-they-thinking/ now if a west coast paper with no relations to our team and PK writes such a favourable editorial and yet seeing the silence from Team Canada Management and our coach certainly points the finger at some bias against PK. Cheers, Ali B.

Oh sorry I hadn't realized that you meant "Day-Har-Nay". I thought you were talking of our D-men. Now the total cap hit is north of 13+ mil (it's getting worse, non?) cheers, Ali B.
