- Comment on Subban mum on contract talks during appearance at Canadian Open (2014-07-27 13:56:43)
MR your description of ORR / Bourque contract talks sounds like a great team guys to have. I wonder sometimes what players on a team think of players that demand so much money for their contracts. I wonder if there are issues of dislike brought on by envy...I wonder if guys like PK are better off being on another team...I kind of hope MB doesn't lock him in and once the arbitration amount is settled he can shop him. They say PK is this and he is that....huge confidence....another way of saying arrogance coupled with a feeling of entitlement...perhaps. I just know form working in places where there were a sometimes huge disparity in salary it caused many problems. I've been a fan of the Habs and hockey in general for decades but you know if the Habs weren't playing I wouldn't care if I ever watched another game. WHen I think of that statement I understand it is only a matter time before I don't choose to watch the Habs anylonger. Money as usual kind of breaks up the loyality factor and why not....there isn't one player on this team that wouldn't leave in a heaertbeeat if there was more money anywhere else. The crazy and sometimes CRAZY world of sports. Sad really

Yep...PK does 5 years for the Habs for 10 M a year and then cuts himself a deal for 200 M a year with an expansion team as yet to be named. I can see that. Problem is MB won't pay him the astronomical $ some on here think,,,I'll be shockedif he goets over 8 M and I hope it more like 7.......if over 8 it will an arbitrated amount and watch for a trade. Which may be in the best interests of the Habs and PK

All hail PK....come to thinkn of it All Hail Coach K for knowing PK so well on a personal level. He is good yes but he is not 10 M a year good and that is for certain unless he plays better on your TV than mine.

That's the best post of all...it doeesn't matter what this forum thinks.....however I advise all against letting facts get in the way of your thoughts. I mean the players on a team for sure wouldn't like the idea of having George Parros type helping to cut down ever so little on cheap shots. They all say they feel better with someone to cover them out there. Probably Gallager was only joking when asked what he thought og GP being on the team....go look it up why don't you. This sure is an interesting site.....hockey of the future...no fighting...no hard pucks.....no checking....just skating around enjoying the fun of it all...making millions of dollars...boring games...don't matter there are no fights now.

Grizzly...why in hell would you try and understand the general trends and opinions on HIO ? That is a recipe for frustration if ever there was one. Good post by the way I would like to see an honest attempt at acquiring a legitmate enforcer though. Not just a fighter but a player with some skills as in skating and hockey sense.......I know hard to find....

Mike D...Vanek will be kind of nervous financially going forard after this chump change contract. He will definitely have buckle down on spending now.
- Comment on Gorges stunned by Habs’ desire to trade him, now waiting for next move (2014-07-01 05:36:49)
Ah the changes needed to further deteriorate the game...money...money and more money for the younger players....good for the game....I mean why shouldn't PK get 10-12 million a year...the hell with anyone else.....maybe he can improve his give aways some and stop over handling the puck most games....and yes this kid Johansen ought to skip the bridge contract and get right to the multi year big bucks even though he was benched in the AHL last year for lack of effort..imagine having so much gall...now imagine a fan having the same view......my God

Phil C.....see you even defend him for the words he speaks. You admit he sounds bad but you won't believe he is thaty arrogant unless you hear the context of the questions...now that is blind loyalty if I ever heard it
