Well, at the end of the day, Mike Richards will live comfortably as a millionaire in the minors, retire gracefully, and start a PK Subban fanclub chapter in Kenora.

I would say partial success for the reason you mentioned. It's just too bad that his level of desire didn't match that of his teammates.

Terrrific reading! Thx UCE edit: I never watched a Dogs game when Guy Boucher was their coach, but I heard on here that he gave a lot of leash to Subban in his 1-3-1 system, and that Subban took advantage of it being the Dman that gapped(?) up on the wing. In anycase, apparently Subban had a very productive season that year before his call up on our Halakian run that beautiful Spring.

Imo Trevor Timmins and his staff deserve just as much credit as Gainey and Gauthier, especially considering the front office was thrifty about spending on scouting staff

As mentioned yesterday by other posters, from Spectors Hockey: TVASPORTS: Hockey analyst Patrice Brisebois claims the Montreal Canadiens have had interest in Colorado Avalanche forward Ryan O’Reilly for two years. Brisebois claimed Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin’s interest in the Avs forward stretches back to O’Reilly’s contentious contract negotiations with the Avs during the 2012-13 half-season lockout. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres are reportedly interested in O’Reilly. NICHOLS ON HOCKEY: TSN’s Bob McKenzie doesn’t see a fit between the Avalanche and the Vancouver Canucks for an O’Reilly trade, speculating it could cost the Canucks defenseman Alex Edler. SPECTOR’S NOTE: Stick tap to L.A. Lariviere for the TVA Sports link. I don’t think there’s a fit with the Habs for O’Reilly. The Avs reportedly want a skilled defenseman in return. The Canadiens aren’t parting with P.K. Subban and Andrei Markov, Alex Emelin has a full no-trade clause, I don’t see the Habs moving Nathan Beaulieu, veterans Sergei Gonchar and Mike Weaver are long in the tooth and Tom Gilbert won’t interest the Avs. I agree with McKenzie’s take on O’Reilly and the Canucks. **** On another note, re Alex Galchenyuk, thank goodness the 11é12 season was so bad, a blessing in disguise really. Im of the opinion that there is enough leadership in the room to try and bring on a player like Yakupov, especially if Galchenyuk can continue to progress and learn how to lead.
