Again great Job with Reilly Bergevi. Played 24 minutes last night. Wow what a player.Gettting him for a 5 was a steal

Agree4 Disagree2

01 Mar 2018 16:24:19
Hahahahahahah. Awesome.

01 Mar 2018 22:55:27
I think habs by shutting down price and Weber was a clear signal that they’re tanking. I never watched the game, and he may have played well, but I wouldn’t read too much into the habs playing unproven players above where they should be in the lineup down the stretch. That’s common practise for 2 reasons. 1 it let's management see the limitations of some players in the system and 2 it is not going to help them get points to hurt their draft position. Reilly was in Minnesota where his father is an owner of the team, if there was something special there, I’m sure they would have given him more of a look. I imagine he’ll just be a decent depth Dman, but for a 5th rounder could be low risk if he’s a late bloomer.

02 Mar 2018 03:16:38
Shutting down players lol. Weber needs surgery and price has a concussion and is nearing a return. I'll be glad when he gets back so they stop getting points in every game. jim you know what a real tank job looks like don't try and act like you dont.

02 Mar 2018 05:10:16
Yeah, leafs did it too. Weber could have come back to play if they needed him (guys like him play through injuries and wait till offseason to fix it all the time) but knew they were out so decided to do the surgery sooner. Leafs told JVR to not come back when he was ready from a broken foot with 15-20 games left and got Matthews. Never said it was a bad thing to do. You’re Pretty defensive without needing to be man. It’s obvious what they’re doing, but lots of teams do it.

02 Mar 2018 05:48:54
It is so not obvious jim the leafs tank job and the sabres tank job and this years rangers tank job are obvious. The habs have played there best hockey since they have been realistically out of it. Now should they be tanking. Yes but there just too stupid.

02 Mar 2018 12:50:51
A lot of teams play better when the management calls a tank, that’s what gets so frustrating. They put worse players in the lineup and those kids play better than ever expected because it’s their one chance to prove they can play at that level, or higher up the lineup than they should. Eventually it comes back to reality. Mike Kostka looked like a top pair D for about 20-25 games on garbage leafs, he’s been looking for steady work since with no luck.

02 Mar 2018 14:14:49
A manager or owner can want to tank, and do what they can to make it happen, but that doesn’t mean players are going to throw games or coaches stop coaching. A guy like Reilly gets a shot at playing in Montreal and does his best. If he tries to get in line and lose, they have a better shot at Dahlin or another great prospect and his road to the NHL gets longer with another obstacle when he gets bumped down the depth chart again. That’s why the kids they put in seem to put perform expectations as much as fail them when teams do this. They will win games still, but at this point that’s not what a GM wants, he doesn’t wanna pick 10th instead of 1st or 2nd or 3rd.

02 Mar 2018 15:42:03
So price and weber are injured. And the habs are icing there best possible line up with those two out. Yeah seems like a tank job to me. I'm sure every gm would like to draft 1st overall every year. But most don't try to lose to do so. why would bergevin trade for reily in the 1st place? He could have called up a lesser dman in Lernout to finish out the year. the plan in montreal is they know they are out of it and they are trying to build something for next year and see where they stand. this isn't a tank it's an opportunity to see what they have in the system moving forward. When price gets back instead of being shut down like you say cause we all know a player can and should play through a concussion they will start losing again I'm sure. Then hopefully it's not to late to leap frog a couple of those teams who have been tanking for the last couple of months.

02 Mar 2018 15:54:41
Where do you get this stuff man. Mike kostka never ever looked like a top pair dman. He barely looked like a bottom pair dman for a couple months.

02 Mar 2018 18:14:23
Kostka actually did look really good for a cpl months. And they traded for Reilly because he’s still a young enough piece that they feel they’re buying low on him and he may still pan out, a late bloomer, like I said earlier. But if they’re trying to win, there were more proven options to trade for, or to dress but that’s not what management wants. I get the injuries bump people up, but you’re telling me that Reilly playing the most minutes on the team, over Petry, mete alzner and benn gives you the best chance to win every night right now. Lol part of a tank is seeing what’s in your organization, like you said, and like i said in the first post, but you just keep thinking that was your idea haha.

02 Mar 2018 20:25:58
It's just eating you alive thinking montreal will get a high draft pick. can you imagine if they win the lottery and get dahlin? I bet you wouldn't get out of bed for a month. Reily played the most the last game cause he was playing the best. next game could be different. And who are all the other better options that could be in the line up? Believe me they are trying to win every game bergevin and management may not like that but julien is the coach and he wants to win. The players for the most part are playing there best hockey of the year which still isn't great but better. And they are getting good goaltending which is something they didn't have this year while price was playing. i hope they lose every game from here on but it ain't happening cause like I said earlier they are too stupid to tank. A true tank would have included trading patches for whatever they could get probably petry too you know just like the leafs done with kessel and phaneuf.

02 Mar 2018 23:27:33
#1 wouldn’t care if they get a high pick

#2 that’s exactly what I said. Management wants to lose, players and coach don’t. Again you just repeated me but made it sound like it was your own thought.

#3 leafs got kapanen, the first rounder used to get Andersen, a d prospect and 3rd for kessel. That’s not giving him away. And getting phaneuf out without retaining a cent and getting a 2nd aswell was a good deal.

#4 if you Think they didn’t try to trade patches at the deadline, you’re more of a fool than I thought. Just had no one with a good enough offer.

03 Mar 2018 01:14:58
Jim we could argue all day I could make arguments against everything you said. Let's just call a truce. You say your biased against the habs like everyone knows already and I'll leave you alone. Ok?

03 Mar 2018 02:43:43
I’m not worried about you leaving me alone lol.

03 Mar 2018 02:58:02
Stop having a pitty party and taking so much offence everytime Someone says a habs player isn’t great. You know why a lot of people don’t like habs fans? a long history of being whiners. Like last week when you made a post about how the NHL was picking on the habs because ghostisbhere didn’t get more penalty minutes for rolling around with your big strong physical captain on the ground with gloves still on like pee wee players. It was a call that is made almost every single game, Coincidental minors for roughing and you think its watergate for Christ’s sake.

03 Mar 2018 04:47:17
See this is where you were biased again I was actually asking why stamkos got called for like 15 mins in penalties for doing the same both only deserved the 2 mins IMO but it was strange how it was different from one night to the next. And again if that wasn't enough to show how much you hate montreal you just took a shot at hab fans by calling them whiners lol. You make this too easy man. change your name it's false advertise.

03 Mar 2018 17:37:16
i Don’t care what jersey they wear, when a team or a fan base whines about being picked on by refs, or the league like the he habs have, and like the penguins did for a long time, and Canucks had a reputation of doing a few years back, obviously you attract a certain level of distain from others. Now a lot of teams and fan bases say the penguins get every call their way, get over it. There have been whole posts on here whining that leafs get too much media coverage lol get over it. Just keep crying victim and saying the worlds unfair Habby. I’m sorry for picking on you. Your team is super awesome and I hope they win 8 Stanley cups in the next 10 years and pacioretty is the epitome of a complete hockey player and shea Weber’s contract is a bargain and he will be as good at 41 as he was at 29. Galchenyuk is a great player on and off the ice and lived up to the hype of a 3rd overall pick too line centre, despite being a 2nd line winger. Sergachev for drouin was not a questionable move because a talented winger is always worth more than a potential top pair Dman. I hope this makes everything’s okay!

03 Mar 2018 18:02:22
Jim I wasn't complaining about the refs cheating montreal. Why waste did you waste the time writing that whole paragraph to pretend like I did just so in your mind you won the argument. either way man you can win if that's what it takes to shut you up lol.

03 Mar 2018 18:31:48
So. you don’t agree with my final assessment of the habs? There’s just no pleasing you lol I apologize, I was wrong. I will be insanely supportive of the habs from here on out. They will be like my second team, well till early April. Then I’ll have to look for another.

01 Mar 2018 02:29:16
Nice debut for mike reily tonight. 23 mins 4 hits don't think anyone saw that coming. You know habs defence looks pretty good when price is not playing

Thanx Sosa. Did u watch me with the Nordiques.

01 Mar 2018 18:34:24
That was my best years.

02 Mar 2018 08:18:26
Hey colt, which Alain Cote are you? Because you say your best years were with the nordiques, but the Alain Cote that played for the habs in 1991 like you said you did (born 1967) only ever played 6 games for the nordiques with 0 pts and a -2 in 1994. The Alain Cote that scored almost 300 pts for the nordiques in almost 700 games was born in 1957 and never played for the Habs. how old are you Colt? Haha Colt, meet google, bull arch nemesis.

02 Mar 2018 12:56:04
BS’s arch nemesis*.

03 Mar 2018 08:38:45

28 Feb 2018 00:51:09
Not nearly enough for Karlsson.

01 Mar 2018 00:04:51
Colt, blues are not trading schwartz for one year of karlson. Put the pipe down bra.

27 Feb 2018 23:55:49


Get a buddy for Drouin

Agree0 Disagree3

28 Feb 2018 01:53:58
Something different. Good work.

28 Feb 2018 08:00:30
Yeah except it's sh** work since FLA would never ever consider this lol.

28 Feb 2018 15:07:24
As much as I like to see different names involved isn’t huberdeau a winger like drouin? Not that I think Montreal says no I don’t think it’s enough for huberdeau but if he’s not a centerman why would the Habs consider this.

28 Feb 2018 17:03:20
He's primarily a winger because of the depth in Florida at center. But he's a solid center as well.

01 Mar 2018 16:25:53
Just like Bergavin thought Drouin was a good center.

27 Feb 2018 22:10:31
I will make one Karlsson trade.. and jus this one
.. after July

To Ottawa
Nolan Patrick
Travis Sanheim
19 First.
Shane Ghostisbhere

Agree3 Disagree3

27 Feb 2018 23:04:23
Since it’s after July, I’m assuming that’s with an extension? Because without an extension, not a chance Philly gives up that. And with an extension, it’s still a lot to give up. They aren’t in Tampa’s position where they have a stanley cup caliber team and still have a ton of good prospects. Philly needs a lot of those prospects still to pan out to be in the same class as Tampa one day. If they give up all that, they’re not a single piece away from a cup favourite like the bolts were when they were trying to get Karlsson.

28 Feb 2018 08:00:59
Overpayment, even with an extension in place, imo.
