1) Sheldon Cooper I am not, but when there is a power play time differential of 26 seconds to 12:34 something is very wrong. (I think my numbers were correct) 2) MT is always trying to mix and match when he deems things are not working. BUT he will never take DD away from Max. Why? It is getting pretty ridiculous that he refuses to try Eller with Max when the offense is not clicking. 3) The Habs D is insanely slow. For a team predicated on speed, having a Dcore that can barely move seems like a backwards move. The D are getting turned and beat to the puck all the time. 4) I like Weise as much as the next guy, but as a 4th line player. Enough with putting him on Max's line and then putting an offensive player on the 4th line to waste creativity. 5) And not to be captain obvious, but this team consistently is not ready to play in 1st periods. At this point in the season it is clearly a coaching issue. Something has to change because you cannot keep playing from behind, etc.

This is a god-awful move by the Bruins. 1) They could have easily moved a player like McQuaid or Bartkowski instead of Boychuk and been fine against the cap with space for call ups if needed. 2) The return is ONLY 2 second round picks. That conditional pick will never happen bc the Isles will not trade Boychuk in season to an Eastern Conference team bc of that condition. 3) Even if the Bruins would not be able to resign Boychuk they could have moved someone else and then moved Boychuk at the deadline and got a much better return. 4) Chiarelli's drafting since 2007 has been TERRIBLE! His resume shows that these picks will likely result in nothing. Plus, the Isles will be at a minimum in the middle of the pack since they made their team better.. 5) The Bruins are in win now mode with Chara getting older this move makes no sense with respect with trying to win the Cup. 6) The Bruins Dcore just took a huge hit because who is going to play those minutes now? McQuaid, Bartkowski, Millar? OUCH! 7) I live in Boston and can tell you right now this city is going crazy calling for Chiarelli's head right now. 8) This is a GREAT trade if you are a Habs fan. Sorry, Sabres fans!

Absolutely not. His contract is terrible. He is no longer a consistent offensive producer and he is signed for the next 6 years at $5.75. Why on earth would ANY team want that contract for a guy who is only going to get worse as the years pass?
- Comment on AUDIO: Habs trade Diaz to Canucks for Weise (2014-02-03 16:41:34)
For me personally, I wanted a 3rd pairing of Diaz-Tinordi this season, but obviously was not meant to be. I still think Diaz can be a solid 3rd pairing guy and 2nd unit PP guy. But his time was up here based on his play this season and being bypassed by a rookie dman (which I have no issue with at all).

Yah because an "offensive Dman" who has less points than the 4th line grinder he was traded for was going to bring in anything of value to this team especially when he is a UFA. Wow, just wow.

(1) Habs fans crack me up. Majority call Diaz a bum and were so glad he was benched, yet are so mad there was little return on him being traded. Really? The fact is Diaz is a subpar defenseman who for all his supposed offensive upside has a 0-11-11 line. He has been bypassed by a rookie and a Dman in Murray. Then add in the fact is a UFA, what did you expect to get for him? Teams are not stupid. The fact is Diaz was not going to bring anything back of any value. It was either a bottom line guy, a subpar prospect player or a late round draft pick. (2) It is really annoying me that fans of other teams are claiming Gallagher is a pest/dirty player and compare him to guys like Marchand. Is this a joke? This could not be further from the truth. The fact is Gallagher does get under the other teams skin, but he does this in a CLEAN way. He goes hard to the net. When he does this does he go with his stick high? Throwing elbows? Punching guys? Hacking ankles? Cross checking? No! So how on earth is that playing like Marchand or other dirty players? Does he sometimes bump the goalie? Yes. But it is not like he goes in without stopping to steamroll the goalie. Like the other night when he basically did a triple axel to avoid the keeper...God forbid a player plays HARD and goes to the net in a clean manner. Not his fault teams do not like that and take liberties with him after the whistle. After any whistle has Gallagher ever started a scuffle? No. It is absolutely ridiculous he is getting this undeserving reputation with other teams fans and maybe even the refs now.

You mean the Oilers.

PA is a soft player who is terrible in his own zone. He is also a cap hit of 4mil per for the next 2 seasons. Free up that money, not waste it on another guy who will do nothing to make this team a contender. So, yes way, MB turned down that offer. It does NOTHING for this team. It is a waste of cap space just like Bourque is now. You want that money off the books in order to try and bring someone this offseason who can actually HELP this team, not anchor them down like PA will do. Just because we want Bourque gone does not mean we will take another team's terrible contract and anchor. Think about that!

Wait...Did you really just say that signing Prust was a "stinker?"
