- Comment on Who will be the Habs’ first-round pick? (with Trevor Timmins audio) (2014-06-27 15:47:32)
Gino Odjick apparently diagnosed with something terminal. Saw this on the TV here at Pearson airport.

That was best-case scenario. Personally, I'd give PK 7.5 :)

Perhaps MGMMB is thinking this: Get Vanek signed to a reasonable deal, we need his points. Let go of Gionta (thank you, Brian) and Bouillon (thank you, Francis). Looks like Weaver isn't coming back. Sign PK to the maximum term around 6.5/year. Move Galchenyuk to center, and hope Beaulieu and Tinordi impress in September. Sign a decent RHD and a RW, keep the rest of the team intact. Re-evaluate at training camp and again at trade deadline time.

- Comment on (AUDIO) Habs sign Markov to three-year contract; Burns named to Hall of Fame (2014-06-23 15:06:54)
Given that the cap will rise each year, this is a good move by management. We need Markov more than whomever would be available on the UFA market; there's simply no one right now to replace him.
- Comment on Gallant named head coach of Panthers; Habs open 2014-15 season in Toronto (2014-06-21 18:51:45)
A lot of people would love that, but one person wouldn't. His name is Michel Therrien.

I don't know the answer, but I think we could use his 30-or-so goals during the regular season. Then again, if he really was sulking because he didn't get his preferred line mates, then he'll be in MT's doghouse all year.

I was unaware that Markov was a 5th round pick; that's amazing. I say sign the guy, he deserves it; he plays top minutes, PP, PK and is a great mentor for the kids. My hope is that we'd let Bouillon ( a real warrior) walk, and possibly trade Gorges (a younger Craig Rivet), both of which are not awful scenarios.

I see what you did there; nice.

Talent? Speed? Goaltending? Toughness? Defence? Resiliency? Structure? Commitment? Balance? Which one is it?
