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.

So Habs fans...( as well as everyone else) what do you think about the Patches trade????

Me personally, sad to see him go, I enjoyed watching him over the years, however, It was time to move on for both sides.

Habby... I'll give praise to Bergevin on this one! Lol.. he did well, hopefully Suzuki will become a top 6 forward .. him and the Finn.Kokowhaterver his name is, can be a good 1 2 punch in years to come

Next captain????? I'd say Weber


1.) 10 Sep 2018 17:11:59
Weber should be captain but don't completely rule out gallahger. i like the trade it was confirmed today that he asked for a trade last season so if anyone is still holding on to the idea that habs management drove him out of town they can give that a rest now. I really like suzuki as a prospect saw a lot of him last season. Like I said earlier I see him better suited as a winger but it's still a little early to say for sure. One thing is for sure montreal center depth in the prospect department is as stocked as any team in the league. kotkaniemi, phoeling, ollofson, sukuki, vejdemo hillis all have nhl potential and there are a few others as we'll that wouldn't suprise me if they made the nhl in the next 2 to 4 years.

2.) 10 Sep 2018 23:13:05
I'm a fan of Weber - hard for me not to put my vote on him. But Gallagher does have a lot of heart.

3.) 11 Sep 2018 00:03:59
I like Gallagher as well. his want to see him finish hi career as a Hab. can remember last time a Captian. retired as the captain. Bob Gainey?

4.) 11 Sep 2018 01:56:26
Yeah it could actually be gainey I'm not sure. I think the last 7 have been traded or let go for sure.

5.) 11 Sep 2018 04:57:39
Gainey it is and the last 9 captains since have all finished their careers elsewhere.



31 Jul 2018 02:48:30
Congrats to Jarome Iginla on one hell of a career... . I was fortunate enough to share beers with the guy when he jus signed his Rookie contract and came to Cranbrook with some of his old Blazers teammates...
One of the classiest men to lace up the skates the NHL has ever seen, as well as the NHLs ultimate power forward .
Gonna miss the guy.. one if the last true Power Forwards


1.) 31 Jul 2018 10:32:15
So you met him in person about 20 years ago?

2.) 31 Jul 2018 17:06:03
a099 what kind of comment is that? inctiting. he made a valid post and sharerd a personal connection he had, just because you weren't born until 2005 and your nuts haven't dropped yet doesn't make it ok for you to ask such a stupid question.

3.) 31 Jul 2018 20:06:29
Lol. ya I met him bout 20 years ago. big whoop. he was a class guy as a kid and seems to be just the same.

4.) 31 Jul 2018 20:10:15
Iggy was awesome. I mentioned last week about Shea Weber being a a born leader and just commanded respect anywhere he goes. Iginla was very much the same. Whether he had just scored the winning goal against your team, laid out your best player, kicked someone’s ass in a fight, I never heard anyone with a bad thing to say about him

I feel like he had the respect of every GM, coach and player for the way he played the game on the ice and the way he was as a person off the ice.

Wish him a good retirement, but have a feeling he won’t be far from the game, maybe something with Hockey Canada if. Or an NHL team.

5.) 31 Jul 2018 20:36:12
@ovies hero idk how my comment came out as rude to you but I was just confirming cause 20 years seems so long ago and it’s not like i replies saying I doubted him or he was full of sh*t lol.

6.) 31 Jul 2018 20:49:19
Yes helluva player real good fighter too.

7.) 31 Jul 2018 21:35:58
That’s funny A099. “20 years seems so long ago”. it sure f’n does. I have a 20 year old and still can’t believe it myself. The crazy thing about the internet is you don’t know who you’re talking to. I’m guessing Ovie nailed it with your age.

8.) 31 Jul 2018 22:49:06
ao99, so you're trying to tell me you didn't come onto the site and see a fresh post about iggy and, with a snort of condescending disbelief type that question and hit send? you might as well have said he lying by asking that question, because you assume your talking to another child.

9.) 31 Jul 2018 23:04:06
I met Iggy at a fruit stand near Kelowna BC last summer. My 10 year old nephew was with me, he's a complete hockey nut and a huge Oilers fan. I told him how much of a NHL legend Iggy is and how much respect he commands and gives out. My nephew went up to him for an autograph and he was just pure class. Met him at a NHL legends golf tournament at Banff springs when I worked there as well. Pure class.
My older brother was the assistant golf bro at Banff springs when I was growing up, He said the Flames came out alllll the time. Group of them would come in, all these no names asking for discounts at the desk while Iggy would jist patiently wait in the back, come up with credit card to check in with a smile. And this was about 15 or so years ago. Great great guy all around.

10.) 01 Aug 2018 02:57:34
Haha @ovies hero all your assumptions are completely wrong and I’m just wondering who pissed in your cornflakes this morning.

11.) 01 Aug 2018 20:07:15
Ovie pisses in his own cornflakes man.



03 Jul 2018 00:06:02
So with Tavares, Kadri and Mathews potential 11+ a year contract coming up.. that's well over 25 mill i'm centers..

Mathews to Arizona

1ST in 2019
Dvorak to Tor..

. Roast me..


1.) 03 Jul 2018 03:56:52
Tavares goes before Mathews come on he’s going no where no matter what the Package. That 25 mil for centers is worth it.

2.) 03 Jul 2018 03:58:17
Matthews isn’t going anywhere lol tavares is here to play with him and win, not to take over for Matthews.

3.) 03 Jul 2018 04:26:34
Leave there new found center situation as is please. After Marner, Nylander and Marleau, they have a ton of cheap options to fill the wings. I know defense is a concern but I say wait to see how this season goes. See if any defense develop and decide what to do with Gardiner.

4.) 03 Jul 2018 09:03:54
Yeah because Matthews gets you a franchise #1D, a likely top 10 pick and a solid, young future top 6er. Leafs fans are the worst.

5.) 03 Jul 2018 11:06:27
It’s a Montreal fan that proposed this. Leaf fans simply replied that Matthews is not going anywhere. I’m sorry Tavares chose his hometown over the money he could’ve had in Tamps. No need to be upset with us, you’re usually better than that.

6.) 03 Jul 2018 13:56:50
Ya Triplets. i'm a Habs fan.
I jus proposed it, cause as good as Tavares is. they still have a lot of issues in the back end. and this team is still not a Cup winner IMO. yes Pittsburgh has done it with Crosby and Malkin as 2 numbr 1s. however. they are both better than both Mathews and Tavares.
I get bringing in Tavares, however ig you guys want your cup. you have the best chance to do so with Mathews as a peice that can complete your team.

7.) 03 Jul 2018 19:32:31
Do you seriously think the Leafs would trade him for anything less than that package? I don't.

8.) 03 Jul 2018 21:25:03
Johnny t is better then Malkin imo and Matthews will be soon.



30 Jun 2018 15:23:51
Anyone able to explain why Bergevin got Steve Mason.??
Im confused by this move..


1.) 30 Jun 2018 16:06:09
Got a decent young NHLer in Armia and picks for taking on Masons contract. Mason already being shopped to other teams with MTL potentially retaining salary to make him more attractive.

2.) 30 Jun 2018 16:22:27
They should just keep Mason in case Price goes down.

3.) 30 Jun 2018 17:44:50
Yeah they should trade price and start the year with niemi and mason. but in reality they will probably buyout mason. They get back armia who is decent and 2 picks for simon bourque who was 8th on the depth chart on defence for laval.

4.) 30 Jun 2018 17:49:57
And just to add armia is a good two way guy who you will love when you watch him play for the habs. That's why they got steve mason.

5.) 30 Jun 2018 17:54:39
I forgot about Niemi.

6.) 30 Jun 2018 19:04:22
They are buying mason out hopefully Winnipeg signs him to a cheap one year deal.

7.) 30 Jun 2018 19:34:52
I was happy about the haul. I see Mason is now on waivers.
I like Armia.



25 Jun 2018 05:43:43
Carlson gets 8 mill a season???. Really??.. I don't even know if I consider him a top 10 dman in the game....
What are Doughty and Karlsson going to command.. .? If he's worth 8.. they are worth 11... 12??


1.) 25 Jun 2018 14:50:07
I think it was already pretty well known that doughty and Karlsson were going to get in the 11 mill+ range. Players were getting 10+ (Eichel, toews, Kane, kopitar) 2-3 years ago and the cap is up $8 mill again. RHD is the most sought after position and these are 2 of the best players in to world. Not shocking at all to see them get $11 mill. Did you think they were $8-9mill range?!?! Like Karlsson would sign in 2019 for what Phil Kessel was signing for 4 years back? Or for only a mill more than shea Weber signed 6 years before?

2.) 25 Jun 2018 15:03:42
I'm suprised he didn't get as much as subban. He's just as good.

3.) 25 Jun 2018 19:25:20
Yeah. I believe he may have left a bit on the table had he gone somewhere else. Not far more, but someone could have offered him 8.5-9. But he’s on a good team, in a role he’s comfortable in and with guys he likes playing with. Good for him to get paid.

4.) 25 Jun 2018 22:44:29
Yeah I think there were a couple teams that probably would have give him 9mil.

5.) 26 Jun 2018 04:24:35
I figured they were 10 mill. Karlsson and Doughty.

I dunno. only probably 2 guys on the game I believe deserve 10+ Crosby and whatever McDavid gets.

The way Gretzky and Lemuiex use to dominate. hmm although there is a max. what would they be worth. 20 mill Plus i'd say if it were allowed .

6.) 26 Jun 2018 05:00:18
. Crosby at 8.7. best contract in the game. especiallybof Carlson is 8.

No way should Habs trade this years 1st rounder. may end up being that Hughes kid. think they will battle Sens for the best odds at it.
Wouldn't be opposed to Bennett . but for the right price. but, I'm not really sure what his value is.? Is he still a prospective top 6? Or, is this who is is. a 10 goal 25 to 30 point 3rd liner.?

I agree with Leafs17. exactly the type of player Leafs need. can be nasty and tough, but also, picks his play up a bit the bigger the stage .

11 Sep 2018 00:11:23
As a Habs fan. and Patches fan, I'll say he just had a down year. I don't know if he (or almost anyone) was able to take the pressure of being a Habs captain, especially on one of the worst seasons in the franchise history . He gets a fresh start in Vegas, with a lot less pressure. . he doesn't have to be the main kog in the offense. this may he the season he finally hits 40 IMO. and I hope he does. was a class act in Montreal, and a really good player for the team.

10 Sep 2018 15:58:44
Not to bad. Tatar can probably score 20 to 25 this season, Really hope Suzuki turns into a top 6 player. , any of you guys back East see him play much in the OHL? Any feedback on him?
