- Comment on ‘You’ve got to thank Pricer for that one,’ Pacioretty says after Habs win over Flames (2014-10-29 16:00:03)
He WAS a first round draft choice; sounds Bulldog bound for now, viewing his stats, and I'm uncertain where his future with the Habs would be. Appears from his stats he plays smaller than he is, IMO.. Not a bad trade, but I can't see it being straight up; Buffalo wants draft picks, so I could see it then. We have A Moen clone in Hamilton (Tangradi) so not a bad option!

- Comment on Habs prospects Thomas, de la Rose, Dietz will get another look against Senators (2014-10-03 18:00:50)
Yes I've been to several games. Not disputing they have issues in Ottawa, and they need to make greater efforts to put together a greater team to pull in the fans. But I will use your figures; 14th (not 30th) in tickets sold; Canadian franchise, not Vegas, Atlanta Long Island or even Columbus... Hamilton could draw better than 4-5 franchises in the U.S with a competitive team. Bobby Ryan is a great marketing signing, and kudos to Ottawa for that. Goaltending would be even better. I'm not looking for a fight, but be realistic; the NHL NEEDS Canadian teams for the draws they create on the road in the U.S. Ask yourself this question ; how many rounds would it take Florida , NYI , Buffalo or Carolina to break even?

Seriously? you actually think a Canadian franchise will be moved after all the issues with failed American franchises? Florida Panthers would be first on my list to be moved North to Quebec City. |The re-establishment of the Nordiques would be similar to the Thrashers being moved to Winnipeg. A win/win situation. I don't post often, but when I see a comment like that, I've got to ask...do you not know that the Canadian franchises have always paid for the U'S franchises in failing health? The Senators can name whatever Captain they wish, and they can still get tickets sold. Chris O'neil could have been named and it would have worked. There is no way, no how that Ottawa moves, as it is still a Cash cow to the NHL.

As for the rankings, only issue is with Chara being ahead of Subban. IMO, he is no longer top 5. Save the planet. Compost a Leaf.

- Comment on Subban wasn’t fazed by arbitration hearing with Habs (2014-08-06 19:56:18)
Nice to see a comparison that is in perspective. I voted that Subban was NOT the top 3 defenseman in the NHL. In my opinion, the Habs paid for the personae and not for the talent. I'm old school (played defense all my time playing)and I have a hard time putting his defensive skills top 10. Put him on the wing, ok got it. But still not a 9 million average player. I just don't see it. I'd love to have me proven wrong. Save the planet. Compost a Leaf.

Habs lost that trade. Savard had 5 assist, 4 pm that playoff. He was a non factor Save the planet. Compost a Leaf.
