    Is this a joke?? people are way too oversensitive these days and its just getting ridiculous. Boone obviously wasn't making a joke about the actual action of rape and i highly doubt that he believes its a joking matter. Maybe just lighten up.

    Really really like this move. Besides for the cap savings that it achieved for next season (Why would Anaheim take Bourque?!! LOL), we brought in a big solid shutdown D who can step in when needed. Based on his numbers last season(+20) ,it seems like he can still play the game despite his age and come playoff time his veteran savvy is only going to help the team. Markov-Subban Emelin -Gonchar Gilbert- Weaver Allen I feel really confident with a D corps like that. It’s a nice mix of puck movers, physical/gritty guys and hybrids. They are no doubt an older group, but if we do end up keeping all 7 of them(potential trade coming?) the opportunity to get some rest will be there. Not overly concerned about Beaulieu and Tinordi in Hamilton this year either. Neither of them are ready(D take longer to develop!!) and they will have almost guaranteed spots next year with Gonchar and Allen moving on. Again , great move by MB!

  • Comment on Game Within the Game: Habs’ Weise strikes first and often against Bruins (2014-11-14 13:46:37)
    A lot of comments on this site are trashing the Bruins today and rightfully so because well they're the Bruins, but at the same time i think that some of you are going overboard is acessing their current situation. The Habs beat them last night without Kreji or Chara and on the second game of a back to back. Did they look absolutely horrible? Yes , Did the Habs look really good? Yes. The only thing is, were talking about a game in November here people!! November!! While i do realize that they may be trending downwards as a team, i also realize that the season is long , these Bruins are still pretty darn good and that they will likely be a contender once again come playoff time. Not to mention, i see a lot of criticism towards the teams management with regards to the Sequin and Boychuck trades(stinkers for sure) but i can't help but think that if the Canadiens were ever to win a cup i would be ok with some questionable management decisions for a couple of years(Roy trade is a bad comparison so don't bring it up lol)...Anyways, i gain no pleasure in defending the Bruins believe me(I hate them all) but sometimes the excitement of a win can really bring out the leaf fans in us here:(

    Would we be better or worse this season if this trade happened tomorrow? To Phoenix: David Desharnais To Montreal: Antoine Vermette

    Definitely not unrealistic expectations and those players could very well reach those totals. I just don't see Pleks as an offensive player at this juncture in his career. Yes, he hasn't had legitimate offensively talented wingers in the last couple of years, but even with Sekaj and a year older Galchenyuk constant offense from that line is questionable . I guess we shall have to wait and see, but not sold on either Galchenyuk or Sekac being 20 goal scorers this year. In any case if goal scoring becomes a problem down the stretch, Ryder should be available on the market lol

    Is anyone else as concerned as i am about this teams goal scoring ability??? In my humble opinion, it's going to be a very big problem for the team this year..... Can we really depend on Sekaj, Bourque and Parenteau? these guys are major question marks that the team is putting a lot of stock into. After Patches , Subban , Desharnais and Markov the overall offense is truly sub-par. Guys like Eller and Galchenyuk will surely be there at times, but will they find that necessary consistency?? If they don't i can see the current team finishing in the 8-10 range, even with Price playing lights out. If we cant score, it simply wont matter how well he plays.
  • Comment on No changes to lines at practice (2013-03-12 16:14:35)
    Despite what some people are saying i really dont think the habs need to acquire any high priced rental players in order to make a serious run in the playoffs. As it stands now the only place where i can really see a need for improvement is on the fourth line. Dumont(will be ready next year) nor White give the fourth line any offensive punch and i think the player to look at to fill that role is Nokelainen or possibly the addition of Dominic Moore. Moore in a pre determined role can make a huge difference in the playoffs like he did a couple of years back and this would be a similar move to Peverley to Boston for their cup run. Another cheap acquisition could be Regher to shore up the D. There's no use giving up the farm for rentals period. Even if the habs seem to have a window of opportunity only a couple of cheap moves are necessary to push them over the top and make them the best team that they can be this year.

    Eller for Niederreiter? Would the Islanders go for it?

    I really hope that's what it is and not a JM love affair with Diaz.
