Who thinks Kassian deserved to get suspended? I didn’t. I thought he did the right thing by beating the snot out of Tkachuk the coward.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2020 11:14:11
Beating a player when he clearly didn’t want to fight is very suspension worthy. Not saying what Tkachuk did all night was right but he deserved his suspension

Who is the best #88?? Ok, longevity and health, is obviously Kane.. but in their prime.. say both healthy at 26?? Something like that.. who was better??
Kane vs Lindros?

I'll take Lindros easily...but wanna see what everyone else thinks

I will see Kane has had the better career.... Kane never met Mr Steven's.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Jan 2020 06:07:22
Lindros in that year or so he wasn't injured was better.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Jan 2020 15:33:20
Lindros for sure.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Jan 2020 19:08:55
Tough one. Could make a case for either. Lindros in his prime there was dominate, nothing the league ever seen. Kane had the most points in the last decade I believe and 3 cups, is an unreal player year after year. I’m a big fan of Kane, also really like Lindros. I actually think it was easier to be really good back in the day, whereas now it seems there is a lot more skilled players. Lindros back then would be like Lebron James playing hockey now, Lol. Would be efin crazy.
I’m on the fence. I might lean to kane with personal bias tho.

Joe Sakic, rookie year with Nordiques he wore 88.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2020 02:45:22
eric lindros is mentioned in the OP. eric lindros played for the leafs wearing 88 ( was trash, but did play) ., nylander is having a good season and currently wears 88 for the leafs.

theres your 1 degree of reach necessary to make this about the leafs.

its really not that hard. everything is always in some way about the leafs.

Before Kovalchuck was a Canadien,( yes I'll sound extremely biased), I was not a fan, and viewed him as a selfish player, who was washed up. Well, I'll eat some humble pie here,
Since he has become a Habs, he has IMO, been the best player on the team, showing leadership, mentorship and great overall skill..
He even took the whole team out for dinner,, so maybe not so selfish.
I know most hope we trade him and get something for him, but.. if he will resign at a reasonable deal.. I'd like to see him back next year. I don't expect 50 goals.. even 30 . , but he's still a valuable guy.. more than I thought.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Jan 2020 06:08:31
I wouldn't mind him back next year but that doesn't mean we can't still trade him before the deadline.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2020 17:35:33
That’s how it works Sosa. I bet you’d be ok with the f’n American creep too if he was on your team.

Agree0 Disagree2

16 Jan 2020 18:18:29
Well, not to sure about that guy. he is kinda creepy, shoulda been charged for what he did to that chick. Anyway. this isn't bout him. not everything is about the Leafs.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2020 22:30:15
Curious how you see him showing leadership and mentor ship already? I haven’t seen any Montreal games, has he been that good? It’s only been 5-6 games.

Agree0 Disagree1

16 Jan 2020 22:37:51
Ya he has. watch some games then.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2020 11:06:20
I’m sorry Sosa, didn’t realize the leadership and mentor ship he was showing. I understand getting a few points. Is he the next captain? No need to be an a**.

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Jan 2020 16:06:59
No need for you to be a clown.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jan 2020 03:07:00
Not everyone can be a natural leader like Austin Matthews Sosa lol. You know that.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2020 07:59:44
Yes Habby. your right. Lol don't know what I was thinking🤦‍♂️.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2020 18:14:20
Gallant got fired from LVK? I didn't really see that coming after what he did with those guys in their opening season!
Does he speak french? He is from PEI so maybe the Habs look at him if they are replacing Julien?

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jan 2020 19:20:46
Get him back in the organization in some form or another at least.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2020 20:22:49
People in PEI don’t speak French lol.

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Jan 2020 15:54:11
They speak Acadian actually vb. It’s a form of French/ English combined.

Agree0 Disagree2

15 Jan 2020 17:39:47
Anyone else think Vegas made a mistake firing Gallant for DeBoer.?
For what Gallant has done in Vegas, I think he shoulda been able a little more time to fix the issue.
I think DeBoer is overrated..

Agree3 Disagree0

15 Jan 2020 18:06:48
Vegas' mistake is another teams opportunity to hire a very good coach.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2020 18:15:08
I agree Sosa! Does he speak french? Maybe replace Julien?

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jan 2020 19:22:21
Yeah dumb move on there part maybe something else to it though like he was kickin the crap out of a someone lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2020 19:24:39
I'm pretty sure he does speak French. I'm not sold that Julien needs to go however.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2020 22:16:10
Ya I don’t think mtl should trade Julien, he’s doing a fantastic job with what he has and this team might need another 5 years to get they’re but a Stanley Cup is on the horizon. Next Canadien team to win a cup is the club based in Montreal, you heard it here first folks!

Agree0 Disagree2

16 Jan 2020 02:11:55
Actually I heard that over 20 years ago and it wasn't here. Still might be true though lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2020 02:45:08
I also think this is where Vegas starts to look like an Expansion team finally. Edmonton, Calgary and even Van must me be happy about this.!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2020 11:07:14
Gallant doesn’t speak French. Pay attention.

Agree4 Disagree2

13 Jan 2020 01:43:39
Montreal rebuilding around kovalchuk and weber and if the genius bergervin can trade price for lucic and trade domi for Thornton they will be on their way. canadians will be a force. Go habs go.

Agree1 Disagree2

13 Jan 2020 07:04:38
Lol not sure if that’s sarcasm or you actually think that’s what they will do either way it’s funny.

The Montreal Geriatric Canadiens!

13 Jan 2020 17:36:12
Maybe we can get Marleau and Chara?

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jan 2020 07:59:38
habs are bringing back Markov and Plekanec.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Jan 2020 14:16:49
Calgary says no, they love Lucic there.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jan 2020 19:20:18
They loved Lucic in Edmonton too. He was best buds with McDavid, just like everyone else.

Agree2 Disagree2

12 Jan 2020 14:02:03
Why is it the amount of money flames pay lucic to be a pilon and can't even stand up for their young star is a joke.why even have him he's absolutely useless.

Agree0 Disagree2

12 Jan 2020 15:16:48
Lucic definitely should’ve done something as soon as Kassian stepped back on the ice. What a selfish play by Kassian, I’m glad it cost his team the game. Tkachuck destroyed him twice, with clean hits. Burke said it “to the point. ” You shouldn’t have to fight to defend a clean hit. I’m a fan of Kassian but he acted like an immature, class less kid who got embarrassed by a better player.

Agree12 Disagree3

12 Jan 2020 16:16:15
If you’re going to play that style and be running around going out of your way looking for those big hits, you’re going to have to answer the bell. It’s just how the NHL is, you see it every day no matter how clean the hit is, no matter who it is. You always see someone fighting a guy after a big hit. It’s nothing new. You make a big hit and most guys are expecting someone to be right there for the challenge.
Stand up for yourself for once instead of being a complete embarrassment of a turtle.

The Flames were even talking about having Lucic and how they can “play a few inches taller now”. Does he even have one fight this year? I can’t remember. That’s the biggest issue I had with him last two seasons in Edm, he was slowing down on the production but still had the ability to be a game changer with his physical play, and he was a ghost with that aspect as well. Got old fast.

Agree5 Disagree10

12 Jan 2020 16:37:00
Tkachuck is a weasel that takes shots at players with their back turned. I don't like players that attack someone who delivers a clean hit but turtle Tkachuck deserved the beating he got, from the player he was cheap hitting. I agree that Lucic is a waste of space on the ice and doesn't stand up for his team which is what they pay him to do.

Agree1 Disagree14

12 Jan 2020 17:08:08
I can see if Tkachuk hit a skilled player having to answer the bell. Kassian plays the same style. Had it been a dirty hit, sure you should expect to fight. Kassian got rocked twice, he should keep his head up. See if he wants to drop the gloves next shift.

Agree6 Disagree5

12 Jan 2020 17:35:17
There’s a history longer than the two hits from last night between the two of them. The hits weren’t bad but I think Kassian was in a vulnerable position and Tkachuk took a run at him twice. One of them getting Kassians head and knocking his helmet off. If it was someone other than Tkachuk probably nothing happens but Tkachuk likes to talk and is an agitator but wouldn’t answer the bell. Sucks the Oilers lost because of it but I like how he made Tkachuk look like a “pussy” as Kassian put it.

Agree3 Disagree6

12 Jan 2020 17:37:08
I wonder why the hearing then if it’s just how the nhl is? I’m not saying Tkachuk doesn’t deserve a beat down.

Agree4 Disagree4

12 Jan 2020 18:09:37
“If Kassian doesn’t want to get hit, then stay off the tracks. I caught him three times there, you’d think he’d learn after the first one. If he wants to react that way, we’ll take the power play, we’ll take the game winner, and we’ll move on to first place. ” Lol.

Agree9 Disagree1

12 Jan 2020 20:51:23
The tracks? The guy was working the puck down low. Tkachuk went out of the way to hit the guy (which I like) but then got his head when he didn’t have to. I see a lot of comparisons to Kadri and the Rangers kid except the Rangers kid isn’t a pussy. I’d say Kassian even gave him more of a chance than Kadri did to fight.

Agree4 Disagree0

12 Jan 2020 22:13:51
Lucic has no choice but to step up next time they play. I don’t know if he can move his arms anymore. Kassian will probably kick his a**.

Agree6 Disagree2

13 Jan 2020 02:00:32
Tkachuk is a beauty.
- 2 clean hits delivered from him on Kassian
- Drew the penalty
- Flames scored
- Flames begins the 1st in the Pacific
- Kassian gets a hearing

The kid is a clown but it was a very smart thing to do

Agree7 Disagree4

13 Jan 2020 17:55:29
As far as I’m concerned tkcuck should have been penalized and booted out of the game after the hit in the 1st period it was a charge and he left his feet and it was quite easy to see it if the guy on the reviceving end had been Mcdavid tkachuck would be suspended indefinitely lol now because of another league F up kassain will probably get the suspension.

Agree4 Disagree6

13 Jan 2020 18:02:26
Head shot on the first hit and Tkachuk is a coward.
He’s going out of his way to make those hits to the point where one could almost argue there’s intent to injure. Tkachuk is scummier than Marchand. Doughty was 100% right about him and more and more players are starting to see it as well.

Agree9 Disagree6

13 Jan 2020 21:55:32
I like a guy going out of his way for a hit, if it’s clean of course. But come on, have a little pride and take the fight.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Jan 2020 08:00:29
Tkachuk living inside all Oilers fans/ players heads, rent free.

Glad my team took Joulevi over him :) :)

Agree3 Disagree4

14 Jan 2020 09:40:14
Has your guy had a 77 point season already and lives in people’s heads rent free? Every team wants a player like that. It just so happens the flames player is much more talented than the oilers. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how good Joulevi is.

Agree0 Disagree2

14 Jan 2020 15:51:21
Obviously that was sarcasm NotToday.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jan 2020 19:01:29
NotToday is about as fast as Lucic.

Agree6 Disagree0

14 Jan 2020 19:48:32
Why do Oiler fans bash Lucic so much now? He was loved so much at one time. Will Lucic and Kassian actually fight? Do they have too much respect for each other because everyone who’s ever played for the oilers were SUCH good friends?

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Jan 2020 01:00:46
If anybody fights Kassian it’s most likely going to be Sam Bennett and he is one tough kid. Would be an awesome bout and would probably be about even

Agree0 Disagree1

15 Jan 2020 04:30:00
He was liked by some for a season and a half probably total. Others knew how bad he’d be before the contract was signed. Also Kassian and Maroon were good friends and they fought last year.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2020 08:39:07
I hope they do fight. I know Bennett is tough but I think Kassian gets the edge. If Lucic can lift those arms still, it could be interesting. I think Kassian would hit Lucic 15 times before the ape got a punch in.

Agree0 Disagree3

11 Jan 2020 00:51:57
Habby , Turkey.. anyone..
So, I'm seeing some stuff bout firing Julien.. also some Bergevin,, maybe I'm being a Homer, but I don't thing either should go., .
Obviously something needs to change..,, yes. , I know some want Price gone( only for a cup chance for me)..
But..... what is it?????

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jan 2020 13:29:08
Problem is with trading Price is we might have to give something in order to get rid of him. He’s close to negative value and if he does have value we would need to take on a bad contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jan 2020 19:21:49
The team constantly outplays the opposition. Bergevin has made several great trades but yet both guys could be on the Choping block. Lol it's the players man clean house of all the guys who are past their prime and are regressing. Finish out of the playoffs this and next year too if it comes to that. Keep building through the draft even if it takes 5 more years.

Agree0 Disagree2

11 Jan 2020 19:22:48
And you could get something in return for price and if they had to retain to maximize the return then so be it.

Agree1 Disagree2

11 Jan 2020 23:07:51
Ya he’s worth maybe a second rd pick and B+ prospect if we take on 2 million. Was talking to my uncle the other day who’s best friend grew up with Bergevin and apparently for what he would get for Price with no retention he is not willing to give up his #1 goalie. We’re looking at no roster player and so the value is in hope.

Agree1 Disagree1

12 Jan 2020 02:16:22
Ok well I can’t argue with that your uncle should know more then everyone else lol.

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Jan 2020 16:04:42
What do you think of Kovi so far Habby? Do you think we can get a good return for him at deadline?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jan 2020 20:52:12
If he's still a point per game pace at the deadline? Sure we could get something along the lines of a 2nd maybe.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2020 14:57:06
Hard part about trading Price (aside from his contract) is the NMC. you would have to find a place that he would waive that for.
I'm not really sold on Julien. but with their strict bilingual rule for their management team, they really handicap themselves.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2020 17:57:10
My feeling thunder is if price could get traded to a team closer to his home he would waive that in a heartbeat.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jan 2020 14:36:17
Well. he is from BC. what about a deal with Seattle?

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jan 2020 22:35:39
That seems to be the leading rumor at the moment.

Agree0 Disagree0
