Price out indefinitely with a concussion

Habby

And Webber shut down for the season. Wonder if Patches is on the blocks again to raise those lotto odds even further?


2.) 23 Feb 2018 00:08:56
Just the media friendly way of saying they have officially entered the Dahlin Cup. Tanking hard now.


3.) 23 Feb 2018 01:22:45
Fallin for Dahlin!


4.) 23 Feb 2018 01:23:43
I'm actually not impressed by it. you guys all no my stance. if ya finish last. no number 1 overall. can't reward crap play.


5.) 23 Feb 2018 05:43:02
Price is a lemon so I'm sure his injury is legit.


6.) 23 Feb 2018 05:43:36
But Jim you'd know more about tanking then I would lol so you may be right.


7.) 23 Feb 2018 05:46:35
They would probably be tanking more if price was playing lol.

Jerabek traded to caps for 5th pick

Habby

1.) 21 Feb 2018 19:16:28
What you think of this? I'm kinda disappointed . I don't think he was given much of an opportunity in Montreal. I'm not saying he was going to be a star. but at least he could move the damn puck.,
Woulda like to have seen a bigger sample size.


2.) 21 Feb 2018 19:26:02
Your right Sosa he wasnt given much of a chance a crowded blue line at the beginning of the season kept him in the minors and lately he was scratched in favor of morrow for some reason. he was the best dman for laval while he was there. that being said I think it came down to him wanting anew one way contract that the habs were not interested in giving him. So they traded him for another draft pick. it didn't cost them anything to get him so at least this way they get something for him albeit not much.


3.) 22 Feb 2018 17:41:06
Stupid move. how can you assess a guy who hasn't played enough games to be expendable.


 

 

21 Feb 2018 16:11:45
Tomas plekanec to the penguins is as good as done according to sources.wait and see I guess lol

Habby

1.) 21 Feb 2018 17:50:24
Could be. what ya hope we get back?


2.) 21 Feb 2018 18:25:54
Hope we get a 2nd.


3.) 21 Feb 2018 18:52:14
I would like to do this

Mtl:Chuck, Pleky, Lindgreen

Pitt: Sprong, Pouliot, Sheary.


4.) 21 Feb 2018 19:03:03
2nd would be great. Might have to take back some cap space.


5.) 21 Feb 2018 19:10:20
Unfortunately it’s probably going to be a 3rd.


6.) 21 Feb 2018 19:12:27
Colt. are you thinking Pouliot? Like as in Derrick, who is a Canuck now. ?


7.) 21 Feb 2018 19:15:51
I hope we get a 1st back Sosa lol.


8.) 21 Feb 2018 19:41:48
Colt pouliot isn’t even on the team anymore bud.


9.) 21 Feb 2018 19:42:25
Ok. Maybe this colt65 is in fact MontrealsFinest and Goldenshowers after all.


10.) 21 Feb 2018 21:07:32
I like both team not and blues.


11.) 21 Feb 2018 22:09:34
Real Colt was Blues and only Blues.


12.) 22 Feb 2018 02:50:34
No I always liked Mtl as well sosa.


13.) 22 Feb 2018 03:58:01
Yes Golden Showers you did.

William nylander for ryan mcdonagh seems to be getting a lot of buzz. Who would do it from a leafs perspective I don't think I would

Habby

1.) 24 Jan 2018 05:16:37
I know I'm in the minority but I don't think the leafs are a cup contender. They are a couple years away. They are still learning how to win. They are having a tougher time this year because they are not playing back up goalies and teams are not taking them lightly. I'm surprised they have been holding a playoff spot all year. Playing in a crappy division helps but I'll give them credit. You don't pick which division you play in.
I would trade UFA's and continue building through the draft. They are still a couple pieces away. If you trade Nylander you are just creating a hole upfront.
That being said Toronto loves trading young players for over the hill players.


2.) 24 Jan 2018 06:01:37
Leafs could get a better suited player than McDon. Like a RHD.


3.) 24 Jan 2018 06:25:43
Everyone sleeping on Nylander. Maybe an unpopular opinion, but I think he’s a better player than Marner. Then again, Marner hasn’t had the luxury of playing with The Big Cactus.

As for the trade, not a chance Toronto touches that. Maybe if McDonagh was 24 or 25. He’s 28 and will sign his next contract at 29. Assuming he stays that’s probably a 7 or 8 year deal at 7M+ per year. A 37 year old McDonagh making 7M/ year is nerve racking. I’ll play it safe with Willy.


4.) 24 Jan 2018 07:19:13
I’m with you VanCity. I’ve been saying for a while now the leafs need to wait for Liljegren to develop before doing anything big. If this kid doesn’t turn out to be what they are hoping, then maybe you trade a good young talent to get a solid defenseman. I really hope they stick to the supposed “plan” that’s been talked about. It they could get a decent 3-4 d man without losing Mathews, Marner, Nylander, or Kadri, go for it. I don’t even want to lose Hyman or Brown either so I definitely don’t like a deal losing Nylander.


5.) 24 Jan 2018 13:14:54
I wouldn’t do it from the leafs, but it makes me think for sure. And @VanCity, a 28 year old top pair d is an over the hill player? Lol and when was the last time the leafs traded top young talent for an over the hill player?


6.) 24 Jan 2018 13:33:16
Larry Brooks out of NY wrote that he thinks Tor and NYR should make a trade are kind Nylander and Mcdonaugh.

For those who still wonder when the habs soured on subban. I can tell you this, things were never the same after they went to arbitration. Things were said on both sides which I don't think were ever forgivin. Just a little post to those fans of teams that may have a star player going to arbitration.

I know people have been saying it for the last 5 years or more but if tampa lands karlsson without giving much from there current roster I might even admit then that they might just be the cup favourite.

Habby

1.) 06 Jul 2018 16:19:04
I don’t think they give up any key pieces ( one of Johnson, Callahan or Killhorn ), Foot and 1st.


2.) 06 Jul 2018 22:55:40
I and lots of people have been saying for years now that Yzerman is a wizard. If he pulls this off, especially with a good extension and maybe even without giving up Point or Sergachev (I would be shocked as Fuk if he pulls that off) .
Would be nuts. Yzerman if serving the best kool-aid in history in Tampa if those things happen.

Welcome to montreal jack hughes!!

Habby

1.) 05 Jul 2018 17:40:28
They’ll probably go off the bored and take someone French knowing Bergivan but in all honesty it seems like every pick sense Galchenyuk they went off the board. You can debate about Sergachev I thought they should’ve took Jost but obviously he was a good pick.


2.) 05 Jul 2018 18:04:13
Montreal selects Samuel Poulin lol


3.) 05 Jul 2018 19:23:43
Vb where do you get these things man. Has bergevin ever went off the board and took someone French?


4.) 05 Jul 2018 23:46:01
No I’m just saying off the board the French part was a joke.


 

 

03 Jul 2018 20:37:28
A very important stat to deciding whether or not a forward is good is his takeaways to giveaway ratio. Like all stats though it isn't 100% but for the most part if you look at the guys who are considered top notch and those who have had success they are usually pretty good in both stats.

Noticed some sabres fans weening about the leafs saying the only reason they got tavares is because they tanked and cleared cap room lol. I find this super funny coming from the biggest tankers in nhl history

Habby

1.) 03 Jul 2018 16:21:32
I agree the Sabres are almost up there with the Oilers.


2.) 03 Jul 2018 19:20:11
It’s the way the league is set up. Don’t blame the teams for following the rules to better themselves. Sabres have been tanking for as long or longer than the leafs. they finished last in 2014 and lost the ekblad lottery to panthers and finished last in 2015 but lost mcdavid lottery to oilers. Don’t be mad that leafs finished last once and actually won the lottery wth the best odds. It’s luck. Winning Matthews expediated our rebuild for sure, but the build was done with calculated decisions too. They were planning to be able to do this 2 years ago when they lost the bid for stamkos shanahan said.


3.) 03 Jul 2018 19:21:52
The sabres are a joke lol


4.) 03 Jul 2018 19:23:54
Not to mention Nylander was on the board when they took Reinhart. And marner when they took Eichel (not saying they should have taken Marner over Eichel obviously, just that they had the opportunity to take the same guys we took that are now our core)


5.) 03 Jul 2018 19:37:58
Also both teams brought in back up goalies that they thought had starter potential (Lehner and Bernier) . Leafs identified it wasn’t working and spent the assets they could afford to get Andersen as where sabres put up with poor goaltending for years. Sabres had 1st rounders like grigorenko ans zadorov that didn’t pan out there and leafs got 4th 5th and 6th rounders from the same era in hyman, brown ans Johnsson on their roster.

The year or two of tanking is not the difference in where these 2 teams are. It’s the managements decisions.


6.) 03 Jul 2018 20:22:57
Tanking is the easiest thing in the world to do I'm suprised some teams like the sabres have this much difficulty doing it.


7.) 03 Jul 2018 23:35:36
@Habby, you’re right the actual tanking is simple. Trade away good players, sign mediocre players to one year deals, and fill the roster with them and prospects.

But what I meant is just doing that doesn’t guarantee you anything. If sucking for 4/ 5 years and accumulating top picks assured you would be a contender then the oilers would have been winning games by 2015 instead of winning Mcdavid, sabres would be a contender because they started a year ahead of Toronto, and Arizona should have 2 cups because they have been picking near the top for a decade lol it’s the other moves that make it all work.


8.) 04 Jul 2018 00:58:10
Carlyle had a winning record when he was fired from the leafs. Me thinks leafs fans should keep their trap shut when it comes to talking about teams intentionally tanking.


9.) 04 Jul 2018 04:58:51
Yes jim that's true but a rebuild doesn't always have to mean Turing a team into a contender. franchises like buffalo and arizona I'm sure would be pleased with just being a playoff contender at this point. rebuild doesn't mean changing into a cup favourite to a lot of teams it just means improving and some of those teams like buffalo and arizona can't even seem to do that. I'm sure they will eventually but man talk about your long rebuild. Not trying to make excuses for edmonton either but a couple of those years they had the 1st overall picks were not real strong drafts. but they have sucked for a long time too and there is really no excuse for it.


10.) 04 Jul 2018 05:00:54
But the hardest thing to do is not to become a contender it's being able to be a contender year after year. rebuilding is super easy compared to that.


11.) 04 Jul 2018 13:20:29
Chirp nailed it.


12.) 04 Jul 2018 13:27:47
This is also a very sensitive subject for chirp had you been around for it Sosa. Hours of entertainment. I know you have a soft spot for the oilers so we won’t talk about all the years they pooped the bed while the leafs fell a point or 2 shy of the playoffs. One team collected 1st overalls and the other didn’t.


13.) 04 Jul 2018 18:03:55
Leafs tanked for two years oilers and Sabres tanked for 10 the Kessel Era is where the Canadians are at now.


14.) 04 Jul 2018 20:42:14
Vb I think they are more like the sundin era. The core group has had moderate playoff success while not making the finals where as the kessel era had zero playoff success.


15.) 04 Jul 2018 20:43:25
Hopefully the habs have sense enough to skip the equivalent of the kessel era lol.


16.) 05 Jul 2018 02:14:58
Oilers just sucked, that’s all.
Just because you get 1st overall picks it doesn’t mean they’ll work out. Weak drafts are weak drafts. Plus MacT and KLowe should never be in charge of anything ever.
I feel like you’re trying to make it personal for some reason. I have zero to do with the Oilers.
Just as you have zero to do with the leafs, even though you probably like to pretend otherwise.

Still, leafs fired a winning coach and replaced him with a stump. As if that isn’t intentionally tanking! Puh-leeease! 😂.

We'll they voted him in as captain so if there is a problem they can all blame themselves. but we can only assume cause we are not in the room. My point was to the guy who said simmonds is great in the room. Maybe he's trouble too by your logic. but as it stands patch is a captain so that argument is pretty stupid imo.

I don't think he has to accept a trade does he jim? i don't think he has any type of no movement clause in his deal. I could be wrong I never checked it out as I had no interest in him being traded.

But on the note of things being disclosed everything is suppose to be disclosed that you are aware of concerning the player your trading. legal matters drinking or partying habits, locker room feuds injuries etc. all could be assumed to affect the players performance as could the legal matter. Off ice issues can be a wide range of things if the other gm asks about a players situation. when trade negotiations are taking place how often do you think the other gm asks why are you trading him? How's that knee injury? Is there any truth about these rumors? A Gm don't just say we'll he's a good player let's see if we can get him, without doing their homework first. I remember when the habs traded mike riberio for janne ninnima there was hardly any talk of riberios drinking problem at the time but gainey had to disclose that info to other Gms and that's the only offer he got. i know it's not the same as the Hoffman case but gainey could have kept quiet about it and got another deal elsewhere and just waited for the other team to find out. But I'm pretty sure the other team then could have filed a grievance to the league and got compensated.
