I'm curious to know... If this Crisis lasts for a long time, would the NHL cancel this season, and just wait for the next?? Or.. totally change up the calendar for a year?? And if so play playoffs in Summer , or even Fall if need be?? And then possibly a 40 to 50 game regulars season for the 20/21 season??
Also.. if this season is scrapped?? Would end of season individual awards be given??

Anyway. , hope all of you and your families stay safe and healthy during this weird time..

I think scrapping this season will be the very last resort. I think they'll find someway to get the playoffs in even if they are sharply shortened.


2.) 19 Mar 2020 08:57:28
Next season will be shortened before this one is cancelled imo.


3.) 19 Mar 2020 13:45:17
Players want to shorten both seasons. Start next year in November. It's all over the news.


4.) 19 Mar 2020 14:51:22
Apparently Bill Daley said shortening next season isn’t going to happen. I think have 5 game series until the last round is a good idea. I know it’ll barely help but it’s a start. These guys will definitely need a few regular season games to get back into as well. Might just have to scrap the season 😬.


5.) 19 Mar 2020 15:01:57
I think they are going to go with a 1 game format for the playoffs. So instead of 4 games win if you win that 1 game your going to the next round. They probably going to go with how the standings are right now so that sucks for the teams that were clost enough to maybe catch up but it is what it is.


6.) 19 Mar 2020 15:57:25
I can't see a 1 game format for this. 5 games seems realistic. And I agree with Ebs . They are going to need a few games to get ready. Also read about some 24 team format. Now for those 8 who would be lucky to get in, that I could possibly see a 1 and done. or mini 3 game series. who knows. Other issues are going to be getting the venues. the air travel, the lodging. this stuff takes a lot of time to plan. so it will be interesting

However, until all the other issues in the world are solved, I guess we just won't know. unfortunately this could last for a long time.


7.) 20 Mar 2020 16:53:34
If the league isn't back practicing as teams buy July 1st I think it will be " No Stanley Cup awarded due to Coronavirus"


8.) 21 Mar 2020 09:10:19
Let’s just wait and see and everyone concern themselves with staying healthy and safe instead.


9.) 21 Mar 2020 15:30:47
I agree Chirp, it's just nice however to take our minds off this crisis, even for a few minutes .

But ya, in the big picture. hockey really doesn't matter at the moment.

Montreal and Edmonton deal

Habs send Hudon, Lindgren and 2nd

Oilers send Pulllyourweiner.. whatever his name is??

sosahabs24

1.) 23 Jul 2019 18:12:07
Why do the Oilers need Lindgren?
For the fourth time, Oilers do NOT NEED DEPTH GOALIES. WE HAVE PLENTY.


2.) 23 Jul 2019 20:47:00
They also have too many depth forwards.


3.) 24 Jul 2019 00:03:11
TyBa4? One more time please?


4.) 24 Jul 2019 02:50:55

Lol. Thanks buddy.


 

 

21 May 2018 22:18:57
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..

sosahabs24

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.
Vancouver
Horvat
Joulevvi
1ST
FOR Tavares

Montreal
Galchenyuk
Lindgren
Juulsen
2nd 18,× 2(both)
1st 2019

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

sosahabs24

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.

Can anyone tell me what is up with Webers injuries??? I understand, he's got ankle, knee, thumb injuries, . Things seem so vague though? From playing high level hockey in the Cup Finals to out for season ,, likely career.
Don't get me wrong, i'm not doubting anything, I 100% beleive the guy has some injuries that will need time to heal and ya it possibly could take a year... but is it a blown ACL?? I'm obviously no Dr, however I don't understand the severity of the injuries. I look at guys like Payten Manning, who was one hit away from possibly being paralyzed however, he had surgery rehabbed , came back and threw 50TDs and won a SuperBowl before he retired.

Habby,, or anyone.. does anyone know the extent of these injuries.?

sosahabs24

1.) 07 Sep 2021 02:40:20
All I’ve heard was he has lingering foot and ankle injuries that could be career threatening. He apparently had a broken thumb.
But seems like the Habs are keeping things secretive. I couldn’t really find any further info.


2.) 07 Sep 2021 04:55:53
Ya that's kind of what I read as well Muzza, thanks.
I do understand that he played with a great deal of pain, I totally understand the need to heal, I deal with chronic foot and ankle issues myself, i'm just not important ( or rich) enough to take time off to heal them.
I sure hope its not the end of Weber, but if it is, was sure a pleasure to watch this guy with the Habs, as well as with team Canada.
Should be the poster boy when they say the Complete Dman.


3.) 07 Sep 2021 05:04:33
It’s the foot injury the one he had surgery on in 2018 that’s the possible career ending one I think. The knee is serious too. I’ve heard through the grape vine that nobody expected him to get through the regular season. I’ve also heard that sometime early in the post season most people around the club were informed that this could be his last hurrah.


4.) 07 Sep 2021 14:22:57
Thanks Habby. Well, hopefully it all works out for him, maybe at this point, I should just hope the guy will have a good quality of life, and not be limping around or using a cane at 45.


 

 

04 Sep 2021 22:02:50
Wow, what a summer its been in Montreal !.. From the Stanley Cup run.,, to jus drama.!. From the EntryDraft,( Mailhoux) to the Expansion draft (Price), then losing Danault,, not being able to re sign Perry, Weber being possibly done forever, and now losing KK.
This team is going to have a very hard time making the playoffs IMO, obviously Bergevin couldn't and shouldn't have re signed KK, not at that price.. But what once looked like a pretty decent center group, looks , well like it usually looks in Montreal, Suzuki is only bright spot..
Habs fans.. who do you think they should go and try to get?.
Also, I'd like to see Armia possibly given a chance to be a center..

sosahabs24

1.) 05 Sep 2021 00:54:18
Well I guess Bergevin already had a plan in place.


2.) 06 Sep 2021 01:42:53
Real tough summer for the Habs. Loosing Danault and Perry I think hurts the most.
Loosing Kotkaniemi and trading for Dvorak IMO is a good move. Dvorak is better player right now.
I also think it’s good for Dvorak. He will get to play with better players. His face off % is over 50%. He is a strong two way player. I think he would be a good fit.
Now if they could trade possibly Drouin for a third line center like McCann or like SosaHabs suggested, play Armia at center. He has the size and strong 2 way play.


3.) 06 Sep 2021 02:09:15
I think the hardest part of seeing KK move is all the work I put in getting my Dad to pronounce his name proper. was one helluva chore lol. he jus called him that Coca-Cola guy for most of his Habs career. 🤣🤣.


4.) 06 Sep 2021 06:05:26
Lol. Now that’s funny.


 

 

20 Aug 2021 08:33:34
Read that Coyotes are done in their arena after this season???( I believe?.. or is it next season)

Can the NHL just get rid of this team finally.? Re-locate em., I wish Quebec City, but they will wanna keep this franchise West..
What about Houston?? , Kansas City? . Or Milwaukee?

sosahabs24

1.) 20 Aug 2021 13:20:04
The NHL should be done there and never should have gone there in the first place, but I highly doubt they move on from Arizona now. Betman will come up with some half assed scheme for the NHL to foot the bill and keep them there.


2.) 20 Aug 2021 14:37:07
I really wish they went out to QC. we just added two west teams in Vegas and Seattle.


 

 

18 Aug 2021 14:30:21
After seeing Carey Price in the playoffs,, are Canadian Fans comfortable with him being the starter for team Canada?? If the NHL goes to the Olympics?
If not?? Who else ? Fluery? I personally am comfortable with him being the starter, however , don't like the wear and tear it will cause him down the stretch.

I feel Hockey Canada needs to start developing Goalies better. It seems like the other top tier nations have surpassed Canada , when it comes go Goalies

sosahabs24

1.) 18 Aug 2021 18:25:19
Price and Kuemper/ Fluery as the vets then one of Binnington, Murray, Hart, Blackwood. Definitely not the strongest in net but still a decent group.


2.) 19 Aug 2021 13:43:46
I’d sooner see him take that month off.


3.) 19 Aug 2021 14:15:37
I'm with you on that Habby, however I also want to see Canada win Gold., so i'm torn.


4.) 19 Aug 2021 14:35:04
To be honest. Price has a better chance at winning a gold metal than he does winning the cup next year. I said it last year and I was very wrong. but I don't think Habs make the playoffs this year back in our own division.


5.) 19 Aug 2021 17:09:54
Price, Flury and Binnington is who I’d choose. 3 cup winners and 2 gold medalists.

Right now Gibson ( maybe ) and Vais are the only 2 goalies I play over price. Even then Price has been there so I think I take the proven player.


6.) 19 Aug 2021 19:21:14
I think ( unfortunately) Turkey your probably right.


7.) 26 Aug 2021 05:24:44
Oh ye of little faith.


 

 

06 Aug 2021 02:10:46
Gonna miss Tatar. I know he had a lot of flaws, and I understand why Habs aren't re signing him, however, he was a really good player for Montreal.
Habby, Turkey.. or whoever else..

Outta these 3.. who would ya rather have?
Tatar
Hoffman
Drouin

sosahabs24

1.) 06 Aug 2021 03:50:15
If whatever was going on with drouin has been resolved like they say I’d probably take him. Hoffman has always been pretty deadly on the power play and habs need help there so he’s a close 2nd. Tatar did play well while he was here. in the regular season at least but he really hasn’t had a good playoff his whole career and his last 3 playoff appearances have been brutal.


2.) 06 Aug 2021 13:59:31
Hoffman helps on the powerplay but is terrible defensively. Drouin is hit and miss but 4-5 years younger than the other two. Tatar played a better all around game in my opinion.
1. Drouin - just because of age and potential
2. Tatar - could still be above 0.6 ppg
3. Hoffman - defensive liability

I really don't like that Hoffman signing. With CC and Tafoli we really don't need another sniper unless CC goes back to school.


3.) 06 Aug 2021 15:50:26
Hoffman is not terrible defensively. for your typical goal scorer he’s about average. Tatar wasn’t great defensively either until he got on a line with two guys who are. he may be slightly better then Hoffman in that area but I doubt it’s enough to make a difference. and yes we have toffoli and Caufield but even with them the power play wasn’t great, add in the loss of Weber’s shot Hoffman should be a big help and another shooter option who can score from anywhere inside the blue line.


4.) 09 Aug 2021 01:48:56
I’m with you Sosa I’d even rather resign stall for another year then to do this. not saying the value is off but just my preference.


5.) 09 Aug 2021 04:21:25
My last comment here was suppose to go on the Monaghan for Anderson post lol.

I think Drouin is considered very risky. He is a really good talent, who just hasn't been able to figure out how to be consistent with that talent. Like MeMarcus said, Seattle could have had him, but chose not to. McCann is the much more safer player, and I believe the Krakken stay with him. He may produce more on this team, and he continues to improve into a reliable 2 way guy. Drouin is jus such a wild card .

Jersey will also have to sign Jack Hughes. I can't see them wanting Reilly, for one season. They have there big FA signing in Hamilton, with Smith and younger Hughes coming in soon, this is a good nucleus.
Don't get me wrong, Reilly is a really good Dman, however, I don't believe he fits the need for Jersey.

Also, doesn't this create a hole for the Leafs? Smith is good, but not Reilly good, at least not yet.

I can't stand Matthews, but even i have to say he's on a whole different level than Tkachuk. Unfortunately, he's a top 10 talent, maybe even higher., he gets a way better package than that.

Mangiapane is turning into one of the better utility guys in the game. can play on any line any given night. can do a little bit of everything. reminds we of Dale Weiss when he had a great 2 years on Habs. but Mangiapane has more upside
Hes a coaches dream, can play any situation, and although not a star, can every now and then look like one on any given game.
