- Comment on Who will be the Habs’ first-round pick? (with Trevor Timmins audio) (2014-06-27 09:50:16)
He said that he'll go for Gallagher any day compared to a big player that doesn't compete.

Prust - White - Weise was my favourite 4th line that we've had all season long. If we let white go, I guarantee we'll be regretting it anytime we play against him.

If I was MB I would give Markov his three years but straight up tell him that there's no hope of a "No movement clause" in that third year.

If it means replacing them with "Better Players" than you might as well name every single person on the team.

Is MT or MB scheduled to speak at all today? Anyone know?

I agree that we have great assets on D. I think that we should start the season with that line up and if we start having trouble on D in the first half of the season, we make a move. It's great to have depth. Injuries happen.

I'd much rather we use those players to get somebody who is more experienced. Someone who can put up points and also has grit. We can get more with that deal. We can win the cup next year. If we trade for Taylor Hall, it won't be next year. Maybe a few years down the road. Also, trading Gorges isn't very easy considering his limited, No Trade Clause.

Next Year's D Markov Emelin Beaulieu Subban Tinnordi Gorges Weaver Pateryn I think that signing markov is a given. He was our best defenseman this year. Gio is also a guaranteed signing. He's our captain and there's no doubt in my mind that a pay cut is in store for him. 3rd line, defensive player. I really hope that Bouillion is NOT resigned. Unfortunately I can imagine him being signed and one of your young defensemen being traded (pateryn). I hope that this does not happen. I doubt that Vanek will resign. I wasn't happy with his compete level in the playoffs. Even though he put up points, there were many times when he seemed uninterested. Murray will be let go and his grit will be replaced by Tinordi. Hopefully Tinner learned a lot this season. Eller is a guaranteed signing. He could easily replace Plekanec. Weise will be back I REALLY HOPE that White comes back. My favourite line this season was White, Prust and Weise. Very disappointed that MT didn't use this combo for more than 3 games. Plekanec is an extremely valuable player that anyone would want on their team. I have a lot of respect for what he's done for our organization. I'll never forget going to my first game in Buffalo in 2007/2008. He scored a hat trick and we won 6-2. Fans were crazy and passing around a homemade stanley cup throughout the stadium. BUT I really believe that we can package plekanec with Tokarski to get a top level player with grit and skill. If that opening is possible, I definitely suggest going for it. Lars eller is a suitable replacement for Plekanec. Tokarski is going to be an elite goaltender in the NHL one day and right now his value is extremely high. package him with plekanec or Bourque to get someone who will add a lot of value to our team. We have Price who will be an elite goaltender for another 10 years minimum. There's no doubt in my mind that he'll be sticking around for his entire career. Budaj is a great back up and valuable team mate. Don't forget that we have Zachary Fucale coming up too. Fucale will never be as good as Ticker but he is still a solid goaltending prospect. His value will rise. Final note. After this season's great cup run, I believe that we'll have a much easier time attracting some of the top UFAs. People want to win the cup. This year, Montreal showed the league that we're close. I can't help but think that during the handshake with the bruins, the thought of "I should have signed with Montreal," was leaking into Iginla's mind on more than one occasion.
- Comment on Habs hold Sunday practice without Price after Game 1 loss to Rangers (2014-05-19 10:45:21)
Very important win tonight! Habs proved in the second period of game 1 that they can play their game. Habs have to score the first goal to get the ice to tilt their way. Expect every player to have a better game. Especially Patches, Vanek, Bourque. Would love to see Chucky get a chance to add some value to this team tonight. Total dominance tonight by the Habs. I don't care who we have in net, this is going to be a great game. GO HABS GO!!! GO HABS GO!!!
