pretty sure Therrien said we were ready for the playoffs last year too

"DD is playing too well to trade right now"... isn't that even more reason to trade him? it's all about managing assets. And right now DD's stock is high. Pleks, GAlchenyuk are undisputed 1st and 2nd line centers in the next year. Desharnais would be on the 3rd line, where pacioretty won't be playing.

agreed. reminds of the Price doubters that thought we shouldve traded him at his lowest point.

In regards to Eller, I don't see why MT doesn't do what he did to get DD going. put gallagher with him and see what happens. DD and Bourque had something going today. Maybe bourque dd and patches can be something to look forward to. and gally can get eller going again.

I never liked the trade. Cole had a rough start, but never had a problem not scoring. Especially the precious season. i don't buy the whole "dumping salary" thing. Dump salary to sign Briere? not logical. dump salary to resign big players...not to sign washed up veterans. if we had kept Cole, that great line wouldve been kept together, and Eller wouldn't be in his slump with Gally still on his wing. they have chemistry.

apparently we signed greg pateryn. and earlier this year morgan ellis. gauthier is really bringing up our D in the next couple years Offense wins games, defense wins championships. Best defense is a good offense. Vicious circle.

AGREEEEE. to me, it seems as though Gauthier replaced Kostitsyn with Bourque. That seemed to be his vision. what a mistake that was. I'll never argue that kostitsyn is an incredible player with great work ethic and is consistent, because it's not true. But he certainly makes Bourque look like an incompetent loser. The trade to remove cammy was smart, but getting bourque is a joke. maybe he'll turn it around, but from what ive heard from Flames fans, we should expect this for a while Offense wins games, defense wins championships. Best defense is a good offense. Vicious circle.

I am worried about Bourque. It was a mistake to get him. It wasn't a mistake to trade Cammalleri however. How will someone get him going? he's being paid over 3 mil to get himself going. he can at least skate, but half the time you dont even see him doing that! and what can get someone going more than playing for the habs in the loudest arena. And finally, even Iginla couldnt get him out of his incosistent self. Even Iginla couldnt get him to play game after game. If he can't do it, NOBODY in the habs dressing room can. only thing in habs organization that can maybe trigger something is that cozy seat up in the pressbox for a game or two. show him we are not messing around Offense wins games, defense wins championships. Best defense is a good offense. Vicious circle.

Sorry, Beaulieu is not ready. He is good...against 16, 17, 18 year olds. Some who will never play in the NHL. He was not very good in the world Juniors, against elite players who will most likely play in the NHL. He is not very big yet and needs to continue working on his defense. Maybe he'll play in Hamilton next year, but even that is just a possibility. Tinordi is more NHL ready than him, and even Tinordi needs a year in the AHL. They have succeeded in the Juniors, but it's the juniors. Offense wins games, defense wins championships. Best defense is a good offense. Vicious circle.
- Comment on Cammy out for game vs. Habs (2012-03-06 13:29:20)
diaz is MUCH better than Kaberle. Defensively and with the puck. fine kaberle is good on PP, but you should be good when you have one less opponent on the ice. if not you suck big time Offense wins games, defense wins championships. Best defense is a good offense. Vicious circle.
