    Hey, where are the stats guys who kept harping on about how Diaz is going to be the next Bobby Orr? Haven't seen an update since... they must be re-crunching the numbers. I think maybe the cat's got their Corsi... or is it their Fenwick? I can never tell... ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    Best news I've heard today. Hope the kid makes a fully recovery and lives a healthy life... who cares about hockey when something like this can take your life away. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    A few of us have been saying the exact same thing the past couple of days... as soon as Vanek was signed, I figured putting him with Plek would not be the best fit. But then again, I'm no MT... ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    The Vancouver situation is a mess indeed. I'm glad our owner-GM-coach setup is solid, it once again shows how important it was for Molson to hire the right guy, and have him in turn hire all of the right people. It's also great that Bergevin isn't the type that wants to do it all on his own (hello, Mr Burke), and trusts the opinions of those around him. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    LOVE the AT&T name... "AT&T dial up another goal, from long-distance" Confirmed! ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    Thanks MRonn, great points as usual. I agree that coaches should coach and managers manage... I just hope that MB isn't sitting up in the rafters, watching the game and going "why the hell do the coaches have our new offensive weapon on the wrong line?". And if he did think that, is it simply a case of telling MT "hey man, put TV on another line" or does he just shut up and hope his coach figures things out. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    Thanks guys. Again, I'm not so interested in the specifics of which guys should play where... mostly interested in the dynamic between the GMs and the coaches, and how the management's vision is carried out. ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.

    I have a general question that maybe some of the posters, and especially if Boone or Stu could comment on this (since they know more about the inner workings of the Habs): I don't want to get into the "which line should Vanek be playing on" debate, as most of us have already spoken out about it. But I'm thinking about this problem from a management standpoint. We know that GMs generally let the coach make up his lines, let him decide who gets PP or PK time etc etc. But let's think about it from the management's point of view. So MB and his group come up with a vision of how the team should play, and therefore what the composition of the team should be. I'm sure MT and his coaching staff have a say, and must ultimately share in this vision or there would be a big disconnect. Now, MB and Dudley et al watch the team play all year and think to themselves "if we could only get a skilled scorer like Vanek, then we could have a great second offensive line to compliment the DD line". What I'm saying is, they have a "vision" of what the lines should look like and where he should play (after all, they are the architects of the team). They make the trade, but now the coach puts their new goal scorer on a defensive line (I don't want to get into the argument about whether Pleks can produce offensive etc... just pay attention to the main point I'm trying to make). So what does the GM do in such a case? Does he go to the coaching staff and tell them "Hey guys, we had a vision for how these lines should look, and where our new acquisition should be lining up, and it doesn't seem like you're putting him in the same position as we envisioned"... or does he just make the trade and hope his coaches ultimately makes the right choices? If I'm the architect of the team, and the guy who is in charge of making my vision come to life is going about it in a different way, shouldn't I have a major say in how he sets the teams lines? ____________________________________ "You will not regret picking me” – PK Subban.
