Vanek is signing in Minnesota

Vanek is going to Minnesota, everyone knows that. Even Minnesota, that's why they didn't go get him. They know he's coming. He's buddies with Pominville, he grew up going to high school in the US in that area and their team is good so...and Danny heatley's 7.5M comes off the books at the end of this season so they'll have the money.

How do you fix the fact that the habs' D doesn't intimidate anyone? Mike Weaver!!!

I hope this crap about the habs being interested in Kesler is a lie. The habs need wingers not another centre. The habs are not the type of team that goes after a guy in his prime (that's for teams who are cup contenders). And if this is true it totally goes against the philosophy of building through the draft (as you'd likely have to give up picks and prospects for Kesler). If anything the habs should sell not buy (unless its picks or prospects).

You need a goalie to be good. The sabres don't have a goalie. They also have a lot of good prospects but are any really elite? I don't think so. But the amount of picks they have over the next couple years is scary! And that's why I approve of their way of doing things and that's why I would like to do some sort of similar plan ie. trading older players for picks. I can guarantee you this team, right now, with Subban and Markov aren't winning anything. Their defense is nothing to be too proud of (defensively) and their offense doesn't scare any top teams. When you have Desharnais as your number one centre and you basically only have one productive line, how the hell are you gonna beat the Blues, Ducks, Hawks, Pens, Kings etc in a 7 game series?

I agree, but I think it's dumb. No matter what, this team will make money. And if you give it a couple years of medium results in order to get really good results later, Geoff will more than make up for it. Think about it, there's a whole generation out there that has never seen a winning habs team, if the habs became a great team again the city would go wild and Geoff could make all the money he wants. Until then, these 1st or 2nd round exits are boring the hell out of me. I actually loved the 2012 flop the most since we got a great player out of it. That's why to me win or flop seems like the best idea. And its gonna be a lot tougher to build a winner if you keep picking up late round draft picks.

The Weise trade was not bad but still..you traded away a guy who can play on the power play for a 4th liner...4 liners are generally the easiest type of players to pick up.

I started off as a huge Marc Bergevin fan, and while I still love his charisma (I think that's important for a GM) I'm really starting to question his decision making. I mean the David Desharnais contract, the trade of Kristo for Thomas seemed questionable, trading for Drewiske seemed like he was just making a deal for the hell of it, even signing Emelin so quickly seemed unnecessary. Signing Danny Briere when that was not only the last thing we needed (another small forward), but the coach obviously isn't a big fan, seems kind of odd. Also, considering his plan is to build for the future and to build through the draft, I don't see why you wouldn't trade Andrei Markov (assuming you can get a good return, which I think you could). This team still needs at least a couple of scoring wingers capable of playing on the first two lines (all the potential wingers to fill this spot from the current system are small) and maybe a mean shutdown defenseman. With such needs, I don't see how you could justify keeping older players around who won't be useful to you by the time this team is a contender. I haven't given up on Bergevin yet but I'm definitely not as confident as I was at first. Hopefully he proves me wrong in the coming months.

Well if you haven't figured out yet that Carey Price is not only > Halak, but one of the best in the league...then just stop. Try curling maybe..
