I know line combos aren't popular around here these days but part of the the Vanek deal stipulates that HIO is allowed to dream again so here goes: Pacioretty - Desharnais - Gallagher Vanek - Galchenyuk/Briere - Briere/Galchenyuk Eller - Plekanek - Gionta Weisse - White - Prust/Moen Subban - Markov Tinordi - Gorges Murray - Emelin Mostly just want to see Vanek play on a line with Galchenyuk. I want to see if Chucky can raise his game when playing with top talent. I think Briere would also be a good player on that line if we wanna use Vanek in a bit of a sniper role. I kind of like the D corps actually. Tear it apart :) Good morning all!

Dude I never said that. I just think shipping him out with other spare parts would return more than this. Him with a player like markov or something of that nature would just be a sweetner. This trade accomplishes nothing but shedding cap if anything?

While I'm not exactly against the trade, wasn't it really just another lateral move by management? I thought Diaz was someone who could be traded but wouldn't we have gotten more if he was part of a package with another middle of the pack player? I'm not gonna start suggesting trade scenarios but I think we could have gotten more if Bergevin just waited for a package deal that would have brought in a better caliber player or a high draft pick. I think I would have been happier with a second round draft pick than with this guy (please prove me wrong, big guy).

Just started thinking about how much I'd wanna try out these d-pairings: Subban - Pateryn Gorges - Beaulieu Markov - Tinordi It would probably be a mess putting 3 vets with 3 rookies and I guess that's why I am not a general manager but if i was a GM or a coach I would take the chance and see what this experiment could bring. Although to be honest seeing as how we have players like Emelin already I think that one of those 3 defensemen are gonna be moved at some point. I think they are all gonna be studs in their own right though.

Hurley's is a great place to watch the game. Multiple televisions and they usually put up a projector in one of the rooms. Friendly clientele and good beer selection. Kinda feels like you're watching the game in your basement. I like it!

Deserves to have his jersey retired in Montreal. Wish he was still the teams captain. I'm glad that Gallagher is making number 11 a respectable number again.

You're not giving Eller much to play with! I would put Eller with the kids, Keep the plex line in tact, and have Briere playing Between Bournival/Prust. Desharnais eats a hot dog upstairs tonight. Although ideally, this would be my team: Subban, Subban, Subban Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban, Subban Price.

I definitely think defensive schemes play into a goalies performance, Burly. I think most NHL goalies are able to keep up at least steady play in net if they get good defensive support. Remember how many one goal wins and losses we had under JM? I think the best goalies are the ones that can put up above average numbers in spite of who plays in front of them. Carey Price can be that goalie I think and even better if he gets some great defensive support.

Ohh Hurley's is one of my favorites. Now that's extra tempting! I'll definitely try to make it out would be cool to put some faces to names! @twi I like the way you think. What's on tap for tonight?
