Probably way off.. and of course I want to see him on my Habs.. but what about a Buffalo and NYI blockbuster...
Tavares on a sign and trade plus a small add due to age difference.
For Jack Eichel.

I'm not a huge Eichel fan due to his personality..I think his ego may be to much to have someone who is coming in the league with even more hype than he did.. Dahlin..
Buffalo gets a strong leader in Tavares..reunited with Okposo.. NYI still gets to have a Star center..


1.) 22 May 2018 01:48:53
Islanders won’t be adding anything extra.

2.) 22 May 2018 03:08:38
No way buffalo touches this Eichel is 20 and is almost as good as Tavares. I’d trade Austin Mathews for Jack Eichel as a leafs fan. And I wouldn’t trade Mathews for Barzel and a player you could get for free in Free agency. In two seasons Eichel will out produce Tavares career highs I’m calling it right now. With that being said if I were buffalo I’d trade O’rielly and sign Tavares to be the 2 c.

3.) 23 May 2018 16:37:28
I wouldn’t trade Matthews for Eichel first off. Secondly, buffalos ownership has committed to Eichel with that massive contract and has apparently allowed him atleast some input on firing and hiring or coaches and gm lol they don’t do that and then trade him 10 months later.



17 Jan 2018 04:51:28
If I'm Garth Snow, does the emergence of Barzal change my way of thinking????
I have been obvious about my desire for the Habs to land Tavares.. ya it's still a crap shoot... however... if I am Snow.,, I build around Barzal.. I don't let Tavares get to July 1st, but trade him for top dollar.. yes !! I want my Habs to get him , however.,I have 2 trades.. who ya take.
FOR Tavares

2nd 18,× 2(both)
1st 2019

These deals are both on the contingent that he signs 8x11 at 88 once he is traded.


1.) 17 Jan 2018 06:08:49
I take Horvat, Joulevi, Van 2018 1st over
Galchenyuk, Lindgren, Juulsen, two 2018 2nds, 2019 1st.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 06:11:16
Horvat is the most proven of all this. I think Juolevi has more value than pretty well all the Montreal pieces. And that Van forst this year should be pretty good.

Make he Montreal 1st 2018 not 2019 and it changes it a bit. It still prefer Van package over Montreals.
Mainly becaUs Horvat is proven and the other two pieces are more potential than any of MTLs.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 07:29:26
Uhhhh no you definitely don’t build around barzal you keep Tavares who is a top 10 player in the world lol. I see your reasoning but no way, I really do think he will resign in New York and imo neither of these trades are enough to get him (im talking value wise not as he’s a UFA) .

4.) 17 Jan 2018 08:09:31
Good points both Edmonton Boyz.

McJesus. yes Tavares is top 10, however, resign him for 8 years, puts him at what? 35? Or Barzal, focus on him, Bellows. ext. In 8 years both are in middle of Prime. I get what your saying

Wouldn't surprise me however, at end if career. m Barzal, more points than John Tavares
I really like Tavares, however, I often wonder, is he a Superstar. or Really good player. there is a diffdefence.

5.) 17 Jan 2018 14:02:55
I think Mtl shouldn’t sign Tavares
We already have bad contracts

Not to mention that 80 million goalie.

6.) 17 Jan 2018 15:12:37
I would say having that 80 million dollar goalie is a good reason to get an 80 million dollar centreman to go with your 80million dollar defensman because they are so committed now, after those moves and trading sergachev, deciding to go another direction now will set any rebuild back many years before it even begins.

7.) 17 Jan 2018 16:19:33
Too much for a rental because Tavares would never re-sign in Van.

Montreal would be better off to just snag him at UFA time w/ o losing assets.

8.) 17 Jan 2018 17:54:40
I think one of the reasons Tavares might stay in NYI is the emergence of Barzel. Not saying it's the only reason, but it's one of many and it does help a little.

9.) 17 Jan 2018 18:20:36
Tavares is a superstar now, and you don’t trade those players. Barzal emerged as a very fun player to watch this year but tbh he had to play two extra years in junior! He wasn’t projected to be this good but unreal player for islanders now his skating is phenomenal but you still don’t trade Tavares. You keep him and you have him, Barzal, bellows, and all those other guys who will come up.

10.) 17 Jan 2018 22:49:03
I agree you try to keep Tavares if you can, and as much as he is saying the right things about wanting to stay, he isn’t holding any talks. As a management team you want to show patience with him and respect him by at the same time the deadline is coming and if he isn’t going to stay, you have to make a plan. You can’t have the best player your team has seen in decades walk for nothing.



30 Nov 2017 22:18:34
!Habs aquire Cracknell from NYR for Holland.

Huh?? Anyone else have any idea why this was made.. Bergevin must be bored?? Or is it jus so he can say he did something.?


1.) 01 Dec 2017 03:44:24
I don't like this. Holland is a pretty good depth forward. Cracknell is not.

2.) 01 Dec 2017 04:58:29
A little of both? Trying to make it look like he's trying.

3.) 01 Dec 2017 06:11:42
I’m surprised Holland wasn’t on the starting roster. I thought he was pretty good in Toronto.

4.) 01 Dec 2017 13:52:37
Holland was signed for 2 years next year being a one way contract. i guess they couldn't see a situation where he would be making the starting lineup this year or next year so they traded him for a guy who brings about the same value to laval and is a ufa at years end that they don't even have to try and find a place for next season. Not hard to figure out guys.

5.) 01 Dec 2017 14:10:45
Apparently holland ask for a trade when he saw Daniel carr + byron Froese being call to play for the big team and not him.



19 Jun 2017 20:01:17
send Tanev and Virtanen
send Kane and Beaulieu.


1.) 19 Jun 2017 21:38:06
I think buffalo passes on this one. If virtanen was more ready I think it could work.

2.) 21 Jun 2017 01:54:46
No way from Van. I wouldn't trade Tanev for Kane and Virtanen for Beaulieu.



17 Jun 2017 19:03:04
Beaulieu to Sabres for a 3rd... hmm not sure how I feel bout that..
Must be something else in the works


1.) 17 Jun 2017 19:06:30
Yeah he must have a trade for a dman coming back I'd assume.

2.) 17 Jun 2017 19:20:10
It's obviously the best deal the Habs could get for him.

3.) 17 Jun 2017 19:22:16
Great deal for the sabres.

4.) 17 Jun 2017 19:37:46
Definitely something in the works in order to help the loss in Defense.

As for this trade though, I see it as pretty reasonable. Beaulieu is good but often overrated in terms of value. So I think Montreal got the best they could for him because there are a lot of teams that have their own Beaulieu type that aren't worth what the Beaulieu asking price started as.

Either way, I hope Beaulieu turns it around for Buffalo and Montreal finds a way to make up for their loss in defensive depth.

5.) 17 Jun 2017 20:03:32

6.) 17 Jun 2017 21:44:47
Really think beaulieau will excel on the Sabres.

15 Jan 2019 20:53:36
Would Charles Hudon be a good fit on Oilers?? He does have some offensive skills... or, is he more destined to be a top line guy in the AHL?.


1.) 15 Jan 2019 22:22:43
He will ne top 6 of montreal in 2-3 years he got 30 points in 72 games last year. he's a Jonathan Audi Marchesault type player. Yanni Gourde 2.0.

2.) 15 Jan 2019 22:20:22
He could possibly be a fit wherever he goes. The price tag should be low right now and if I was a team looking for forward help I'd check in on him. When he's motivated on top of getting a decent amount of scoring chances he's also a pretty gritty player. too bad he's not more consistent in his effort.

3.) 15 Jan 2019 22:21:29
Since the nhl have been recording hits who holds the montreal canadiens franchise record for most hits in a game?

4.) 15 Jan 2019 22:33:03
I disagree Boom, he's 24 already. in 2 to 3 years at this pace he will be In Europe. I think he had skill, I jus don't see the future in Montreal. I think he could compliment a star though. that's why I thought of Edmonton. I was thinking maybe a faster Ty Rattie. for McDavid.?

5.) 16 Jan 2019 02:10:24
Oh boy. Habby, I'll go with Emelin? For hits.

6.) 16 Jan 2019 05:26:57
Charles hudon earlier this year with 12 Sosa.

7.) 16 Jan 2019 06:08:27
What? That must be an error. I'm shocked if he gets 1 in a game. lol.

8.) 16 Jan 2019 16:27:17
He usually doesn't have more then 1 or 2 but this game he did have 12. He was benched for a few games before this one and I guess he was trying to keep his spot in the lineup. Didn't work lol. Maybe he didn't give the puck away that lead to a goal I guess.



14 Jan 2019 06:18:20
Are the Flames the most complete team in the NHL??, well right there with Tampa. With the exception of net..?? Should they make a play for Bobrovsky.? Or is Rittich able to take this team possibly deep in the playoffs.


1.) 14 Jan 2019 16:28:11
How are they Compete? The have 1 unreal line and solid defense. They have nothing on San Jose imo but they’re probably the second to best in there division.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 16:45:19
All teams have holes in the lineup but calgary is looking to be one of the best teams in the league right now. IMO I think winnipeg is the most complete team in the league but I can see how an argument could be made for the flames tampa and nashville and maybe even San Jose.

3.) 14 Jan 2019 17:18:15
Four forwards that should score over 30 goals and 80 points, and a top 4 defense that is envy of the league and includes a Norris candidate this year in Giordano. They have solid depth and are strong all positions. Net might be weakest spot, but still have two solid goalies and one of the best tandems in the league.

4.) 14 Jan 2019 18:29:31
Well VB. they have talent all over ., they have grit and Toughness. they have a power forward in Tkachuk who is also cut from a similar cloth as Kadri/ Marchand/ Gallagher.
They have so many weapons, I forgot that James Neal is even on the team. and even though he is having a rough year, at anytime, he can play like a 30 goal man again. so I think this team is pretty deep.
I hope this team will do well in the playoffs this year.

5.) 14 Jan 2019 20:53:35
Bob on the flames would be nice. but i think that would cost them too much to maintain the makeup of their team as it stands.

6.) 14 Jan 2019 22:55:48
Their top five forwards are unreal, their top line is amazing, put simply, and Backlund is quietly one of the best defensive players in the NHL, and Tkachuk is a pest whos over PPG.

Neal really needs to get going. If he starts going that's just another piece to the offence. And, down the lineup they have their hardworkers like Jankowski, Bennett, Frolik, etc.

Their defence is stellar, I liked the Hanifin for Hamilton swap the moment it happened for them, and Gio's have a Norris candidate year. Brodie, Andersson and Hamonic ++ Valimaki soon makes the dcore insane.

I agree they should go for a goalie. I think Bob would have too high a price, someone like Jimmy Howard, Semyon Varlamov for the season, and then pursue Bob hard in free agency. If they have to buyout/ trade Neal to make cap room for Bob then I'd say for sure, they could use a guy to help Rittich out until Parsons is fully ready.

And right now, I'd give the nod to Tampa. Tampa's too unreal, on paper and on the ice, its basically unfair. Right now though, for SC picks, I'd go with: Tampa/ Calgary/ Winnipeg/ San Jose/ Toronto in that order.

7.) 15 Jan 2019 00:15:13
TSS. You described them better than I did, thank you
Only thing you said I'm not sure about is Howard.? Would he be an upgrade over what they have now?

8.) 15 Jan 2019 12:24:45
Howard’s been having a really good season. And almost anyone is an upgrade on what Calgary has now. It’s incredible they’ve been as good as they have with what they have in net, Rittich has been good but Howard has more experience and I’m not sold a lot of Rittich numbers aren’t influenced by the D in front of him.

9.) 15 Jan 2019 17:34:30
The same D played in front of smith too. rittich has been a big part of why calgary has been so good. Whether he can play this way in a high pressure play off series is still left to be seen but right now I wouldn't give up a ton for howard.

10.) 15 Jan 2019 22:18:16
Mtl should be in the talks for the Stanley Cup if Price plays like he did last night for the remainder of the season and playoffs.

11.) 16 Jan 2019 05:28:02
What about niemi? I mean he won a cup before lol.

12.) 16 Jan 2019 11:48:32
Howard opposed to Smith would be my suggestion. Rittich needs to stay as the backup imo.



13 Jan 2019 18:34:13
I think these 3 players are fairly similar, so I'll ask,,
Out of Bergeron, Toews and Kopitar,, who do you take..
I'll take Bergeron.. probably only a couple other centers in the league I'd take before him..

And for game 7 Stanely Cup Finals.. I'm not sure there is anyone I'd want more than him.. jus so responsible both ends of the ice. Crosby is about it..
Hes kind of like a Forward Nicklas Lidstrom, never seems to make a mistake.


1.) 13 Jan 2019 19:58:50
IMO they are all about the same. toews and kopitar each have massive contracts which makes bergeron more valueble. Bergeron usually plays with better line mates then the other two but he is what makes the line work as we'll as it does just the same. All 3 are proven winners but right now with contracts aside I probably take kopitar he has a major size and durability edge over bergeron. But in a game 7 it's just to close to call for me.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 22:00:39
Definitely Bergeron imo.

3.) 14 Jan 2019 20:55:03



13 Jan 2019 00:32:36
As a Habs fan, I'm wondering why Sherbak couldn't play 4th line wing over Agostino, and well, why couldn't DelaRose play center over Chaput??? I don't think it would have hurt..


1.) 13 Jan 2019 02:41:51
I actually think de la rose could have played in place of chaput. But scherbak doesn't have it in him to do the things agostino does. that being said agostino should never lead the team in powerplay ice time like he did tonight lol.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 02:47:34
Also if a coach sees that your not putting in the work required and others are. who do you think he plays? I don't really like agostino and chaput either but we can't say they don't work their a$$ off.

3.) 13 Jan 2019 04:47:52
I'm really not a fan of Agostino. seems like he jus gives up the puck all game. and ya, what is he doing on the PP at all, let alone leading the ice time for it. even though he works his but off, he jus doesn't have it to be in the Bigs. I'd like to see Habs bring a youngster up, and let him grow on the 4th. from mistakes to personal victories. jus has to be better than Agostino.

4.) 13 Jan 2019 05:44:20
In a perfect world agostino is like your 13th forward. But there is nobody on the farm I would feel comfortable dropping into his role right now. i don't see an improvement in mccarron so why bother? The rest are not defensively responsible yet to take his place. what I would like to see more of is peca and hudon getting more playing time. Alternate agostino chaput deslauriers hudon and peca but only have 3 of them playing in the same game.

5.) 13 Jan 2019 06:05:32
I like agostino more then chaput what about you?

6.) 13 Jan 2019 10:32:40
I agree with rotating them all and you said. and ya, I guess no one on the farm really had earned the spot. The one guy who woulda been good at 4th line center is in Detroit now.
As for Agostino/ Chaput., I prefer Chaput., only due to the fact he doesn't make as many mistakes. seems like anytime Agostino touches the puck. it benefits the other team. I'm not sure he mentally grasps the fact he's a 4th liner. I think he wants to be a top 6, but just doesn't have the skill to be that in the NHL. and doesn't have the mindset to be a decent responsible checker. Anyway. I'm sure I have wasted to much energy thinking about Agostino. Lol.

7.) 13 Jan 2019 15:29:31
Julien is trying to turn him into a top six I think. Leave him on the 4th line and in that role and he looks much better.

8.) 13 Jan 2019 15:38:37
He does have more offensive upside then chaput though as limited as it might be. i think chaput is currently on a 49 game goalless streak lol.

9.) 13 Jan 2019 17:06:03
As far as I'm concerned neither of em should be in the NHL. But, I think Chaput plays a smarter defensive game. maybe if Julien kept Agostino off the PP and jus kept him on 4th line, I'd be happier lol.
If I really think about it, I would have much rather seen Plekanec finish out the season as 4th line center.

10.) 13 Jan 2019 17:41:37
Yeah when agostino is expected to just play his 4th line role he has been decent up to this point. he was horrible on the power play last night. I think there is more to the plekanec story then we know. I actually think he made the decision to move on. Probably because of his back trouble. I'm sure the habs didn't mind just the same cause it would have eventually meant somebody else would have had to go on waivers.



11 Jan 2019 19:50:40
To bad to see Rick Nash retire relatively early due to concussion concerns... obviously the last few seasons, he hasn't been the dominant power forward he had been in the past, but was still a capable 2 way Top 6 forward..
I guess my question is... He played in an era where 100 pts and 50 goals was not common.., Is he a Hall of Famer.?? I'm on the fence., probably leaning towards no., due to lack of team success Anyone with some good arguments as to why he should be?


1.) 11 Jan 2019 21:45:18
Im on the fence with him too. One reason I could see him being in tho is cause he was the one who brought hockey to light in Columbus. he's the story behind the Jackets and easily their franchises best player. It'll be interesting tho.

2.) 11 Jan 2019 23:27:13
It's too close to call really. Based on his numbers I would say no. But his international success and his rocket trophy along with what TSS said it's close and he might someday get in.

3.) 11 Jan 2019 20:57:52
Rick nash never had 50 goals in a season. His best season was 41 goals. And he never had 100 points. His best season was 79. Not Hall of Fame material they're is absolutely no argument to that. I personally really liked him was one of my favorite player growing up but he never played like a future hall of Famer even in his best seasons.

4.) 12 Jan 2019 01:52:59
My argument to that Boom is that not many people did get 100 pts or 50 goals. he played in an era were Jamie Benn won the Art Ross with 87 pts. I'm not saying he is a Hall of Famer either., but I think it's closer than you say. If you think of his era, he was a pretty big deal for a number of seasons.
I still say no, but I'm wondering if anyone has a case for him to he in the Hall.? So far, I guess not.

5.) 12 Jan 2019 02:42:15
He never scored 50 but he did lead the league one year. There is an argument to be made. I don't think he gets in either but I wouldn't be surprised if he did someday.

6.) 14 Jan 2019 14:29:59
They're is absolutely no argument to br made with Rick Nash in the hall of fame. He was never a hall of Famer type player. Never a leader of a team even in Columbus it was him before the team. Not Hall of Fame material.

Vb, . why give up all that for maybe 2 months of Duchene. no way they can pay him to stay in offseason.
Little has been a good player, and he clicks well. by the time Duchene got use to being a Jet. , would be time to go anyway.
I'm not a huge fan of these load up for the playoffs. . small moves usually help, however the high ticket guys. I dunno, never seems like it works out that great.
