I disagree with trading Moen. I feel he makes the ideal cheap 13th forward on this team. Replacing him in that role would prove to be most difficult IMO.

Yes indeed, I did misread your post. I apologize immensely. Please accept. Ray

I call BS on this one. Quit drinking the Kool-Aide. You do not build a contender by dumping Eller & keeping Desharnias!!! What is the difference between the two??? Well, let's start with consistency. DD has had the privilege of playing center with the same winger for over 80% of the time over the past three seasons. Eller has played every position on the team on every line during that same period. Eller when centering, when playing center between the two kids, was indeed the Habs best center, but the coaching tore that line apart to use the undersized Gallagher to help the undersize Desharnias get his head out of his butt. Thus Gallagher, is taking a huge beating, while Desharnias reaps the rewards. Did Gallagher take a beat on the Egg line??? Yes, but he had two linemates who carried much more of the load than Pacioretty & Desharnias do on their line. IMO, both Gallagher's & Eller's games are suffering to give Desharnias mnore than enough ample opportunity to add to his stat sheet. Eller bangs & crashes along the boards, fights & digs for pucks with less than adequate line mates, while Desharnias is pushed & shoved off of the pucks more often than not with the Habs top two forwards. Can you even begin to imagine Desharnias replacing Eller on the PK??? Holy jumpin', get a grip gang!!!

Bingo, Markov, Plekanec & maybe Gorges are probably the only veteran assets that would warrant any discussion from a rival GM. & the returns would probably less than what most Habs fan would expect, IMO.

Young upcoming D-man Chris Chelios for Superstar Denis Savard sound familiar??? Trading young players John Leclair & Eric Desjardins, trading prospects like Ryan McDonagh, trading 1st rd picks for the likes of Alex Tanguay. No thanks, just stay the course with the kids. That said, I still don't feel confident on how the kids in Hamilton are being developed.

That's a no-brainer IMO. But for some reason beyond my understanding, pumping Desharnias' tires are more of a prerogative for this team!!!???

Now is not the time to trade any of the kids or younger core players. Shake that thought completely out of your head!!!

The mistake I believe that is being made at the present time, is not have either Pateryn or Tinordi up in this lineup. Frankie Bouillion's better years are behind him & this team will not be moving forward as with him on D, so one of these kids need to be getting some NHL time IMO. I can't imagine that the plan is to bring two or three (Pateryn, Beaullieu & Tinordi) to start all the same season. Thus I do agree with you that this team is still growing & no quick fixes will help. I believe Frankie, who was Therrien's captain in the Q, is like some kind of security blanket for him. Time to throw that worn out blanket away MT & break in a new one.
