- Comment on Update: Habs development camp continues in Brossard (2014-07-09 13:28:14)
Thank you....and he is not a forward. These signings have no bearing what so ever on PKs contract.
- Comment on Gorges stunned by Habs’ desire to trade him, now waiting for next move (2014-07-01 09:47:11)
Maybe a bit over the top, but not personal. I don't know #26 and he is probably a really great son, husband, etc. I didn't like the contract value, the length, or his play. I'm just happy he won't be captain and we might be able to clear that money.

I've been waiting for this for a very long time and I cringed every time someone on here talked about this guy becoming our next captain. It's business #26, you've been overpaid for some time now and you need to stop whining like a little bitch and move on - be professional. Next time you sign a contract, consider the value you provide vs. the cost of the contract or you'll be moving again.
- Comment on ‘I feel like it’s my home,’ Habs’ Markov says about Montreal (2014-06-26 08:36:08)
I don't think its MB. He played his cards exactly how he should have in this one but didn't a good hand in the end. PK has leverage now and I don't see him locking in long term. In his best interests, unless he just really wants to play in Montreal, he should go for 2 yrs and test the market when he is UFA. I think PK is driving the 2 yr deal. If I am MB, he only gets $6M on a 2 yr deal, take it or leave it. long term I would start at $6-$6.5M and go up form there with a avg over the 7-8 yrs of $7.25M or so...
- Comment on Markov looking for three-year, $18-million deal: report (2014-06-17 11:34:11)
I have and always had a huge respect for Markov. Elite defensemen in his prime that was underrated. Very savvy today and intelligent, making up for his physical abilities that have left him. This is not the time to be sentimental on any of these guys and 3 yrs for $6M a yr is ridiculous. Good bye Andrei, thank you for your service. Go help somebody win a cup while we build a powerhouse. The Habs will not replace him and they won't be better on the back end without him, but it's about the plan and larger picture right now and that $6M will be needed badly in coming years to push for the cup.
- Comment on Habs will clear out lockers Saturday in Brossard (2014-05-30 15:28:13)
Thank you...we have to give to get and by doing so, will shed assets that we have replacements for and gain pieces we don't have and need. I expect us too give talent away that succeeds at the NHL level and in return we get the same thing, but it's a piece(s) we didn't have. I don't like the FA market this year I think trades are our best option for immediate improvement outside of our core getting better with time..

I can't wait for the offseason moves to begin. This is not a time to be sentimental or feel you have to reward folks for playing hard and being apart of this great run. They were rewarded when they cashed their paycheck. It's time to move on, get younger, bigger, and yes even faster. I want a big time scoring winger (via trade if needed) and an upgraded defense. One that puts #26 in the last defense pairing where his small frame is better suited and does not have #55, #43, or the big Russian if he is not realistic about his value. My only concern is our GM is very methodical and patient. He wont make moves just to make moves, and we might be waiting another year before we can expect to be a real contender year in and year out. Not that we couldn't beat the Rangers and keep the magical season rolling, but really, this team overachieved (and I couldn't be prouder). It's time to bring in the next round of players that will get us to the next level and compliment what we have built to date.

I won't belabor it, but it was unprofessional and embarrassing...no place in any league for that crap.

Thank you for the clarification. I stand corrected and should not have opened my yapper without knowing the facts. I think he will get a game. Probably would have gotten 2 if Weise was injured. I can also see them saying time served because it was called on the ice.

I thought I watched the game last night but I must have just dozed off and been dreaming. The hit I saw in my sleep on Weise was later and higher than Prust's hit. And that is not really open for interpretation on the hit I saw, it was high and very late. The puck was over by the boards at the blue line before he was hit. He didn't just brush the side of Weise's head and then Weise break his jaw later in the game, but it was a high and late hit, period, if its the hit I dreamed about. I need to see the hit AV referred too to be able to comment on that one.
