All the talk about the good young Habs prospects, like Caufield, Poehling, Suzuki, Romanov and .. etc..
So far, Fluery is the one I'm most impressed by...he has a really good 2 way game.. I like the future with this team..

Agree0 Disagree0

Your more impressed then you were by poehlings 1 nhl game? lol I know what you mean though. Fleury looks nhl ready so far that's for sure I'm not sure if their is a lot of upside there offensively but he should be able to hold down a 3rd pairing spot at the very least.

San Jose Sharks needs to try to trade Martin Jones with his crazy contract 5,8

Your thoughts which players/ goalie’+ player they can acquire from other team?

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Oct 2019 00:29:17
There's Howard from Detroit and Allen from st. louis, maybe re acquire griess from the island or ring the phone of Rob Blake to ask the price of Jonny quick? Maybe Holtby becomes available by the trade deadline? Other teams that I could see having an interest in Jones is buffalo, Calgary, Columbus or new jersey.

That Drouin guy is looking alright eh biasjoe?

Agree2 Disagree3

19 Oct 2019 20:31:46
I'm impressed with Nick Cousins.. , kinda reminds me of the role Dale Weiss played a few seasons ago..
If Habs can somehow add to the D, I think this could be a pretty decent team

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Oct 2019 21:15:46
Seems like a few guys are starting to find their groove. And the defence is getting better but it's still early.

Agree0 Disagree1

Habby, do you see a guy out there Habs should target for a top 4 D position?

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Oct 2019 01:04:29
When it comes to Top 4 Dman to Habs, Are they looking particularly for LHD?

Also is there an age preference or rental vs term issue?

Just to help narrow down the search and suggest ideas.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Oct 2019 04:28:16
There may be a couple guys out there but what will be the cost? If its cole Caufield for example I'd sooner just stay the course.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Oct 2019 04:29:34
I like esa Lindell from the stars and if they continue to suck he might become available but again it will be pricey.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Oct 2019 08:02:39
I can’t see Lindell becoming available, he’s a building block. You could probably get Sekera from Dallas but the question is: would you want him?
Probably not.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Oct 2019 15:18:49
I wouldn't want Sekera, his best is behind him. I'm thinking someone who is already an established top 4 guy. Habs have a lot of 5 and 6 guys. but I believe a legit top 4 would could be the difference between a wildcard spot or a another season with no playoffs.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Oct 2019 17:34:10
I don't see any reason to make a trade just to say you made a trade. That's why Imo someone like sekera wouldn't even be considered as he isn't an improvement on anyone they already have. And chirp I think if Dallas continues to suck a lot of people might become available.

With Tavares out if I was Babcock I would go
Mikheyev Matthews Marner
Johnsson Nylander Kapanen.
Maybe switch the two LWs if you want to keep Johnsson with Matthews.
Those are the two strongest top two lines imo with Tavares out.
But I think Nylander stays with Matthews and Kerfoot with center Marner and Mikheyev, So Marner can drive his own line. I’d see what Matthews and Marner can do together this two weeks. Nylander 2C which he’s supposed to be able to do.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Oct 2019 22:29:00
May be the first time I’ve ever agreed with you yupp. I don’t recall Matthews and Marner ever getting much of a chance together at 5 on 5. Nylander looked pretty good in the short time we saw him at center. That’s the bonus of having a winger that can play center, they fill in when there’s an injury.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Oct 2019 23:38:21
Matthews, Marner and Johnsson line scores on their 2nd or 3rd shift together and Babcock says, “ I better switch them up. ” Wtf.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Oct 2019 00:16:38
Schwartz Schenn Senko
Blais O’Reilly Perron
Fabbri Bozak Steen
Barbashev Sundvist Thomas

Colt, why is Thomas being demoted and not promoted to #1 center status like you say? If he’s supposed to be a future #1C why is he demoted to 4RW from 3LW. In favor of Blais, Perron, Fabbri and Steen?

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Oct 2019 10:13:44
Colt won't answer he hides and comes back when St Louis are successful, under the name Redwing. But I can say Thomas will never be a #1 center he's just not that kind of player. However if he's develop correctly he should be the #2 center and be a good two way back checker.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Oct 2019 20:35:38
But if he is supposed to be a good 2C then why did they just resign Schenn for so long while having O’Reilly for 4 more years as well. When’s he going to get his top C role?

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Oct 2019 01:15:12
Good point, maybe in 2-3 years when Thomas is ready to take on a bigger role, they might trade one of Scheen or O'Reilly. Or maybe it takes another 4 years for Thomas to become a top 6 center so O'Reilly becomes a UFA then anyways.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Oct 2019 16:35:36
Ah yes, the classic development of a #1 C. 😂😂😂.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 23:03:40
Not necessarily a trade post but more of a what type of contracts you think these players will get at the end of the season?

Sam Reinhart
Brandon Montour
Nikita Zadorov
Max Domi
Ryan Pulock
Josh Andersen
Pierre-Luc Dubois
Kevin Labanc
Nico Hischier
Nolan Patrick
Casey Mittlestadt
Mikhail Sergachev
Dylan Strome
Tyson Jost
Jack Roslovic
Matt Murray
Darnell Nurse
Anthony Mantha
Andreas Athanasiou
Tyler Bertuzzi

There's probably more key RFAs I missed, if you have any thoughts on them please feel free to comment.

Just trying to get a sense of the next impending RFA class at the end of this season. Will we see similar hold outs for money? Will it be bridge or long term? Another Offer Sheet? Sign and trades?

Probably way to early but we can maybe make predictions/discuss and see if it changes this season

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Oct 2019 10:20:28
Reinhart:7 million×8 years

Montour:6 million × 6 years







Agree0 Disagree2

18 Oct 2019 19:42:38
Wow! After I made this post there is a confirmed extension for Nico Hischier.

7 years x 7.25 mill AAV. Thoughts on the deal? Does that affect the next RFA market?

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Oct 2019 01:25:35
Not bad, he's still like not proven to be worth that yet but will be worth it in 2 years for sure.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Oct 2019 20:27:39
Theres something about James Neal i swear. When he played for Nashville they made it far in the playoffs, when he played for Vegas they made the Finals, when he played for Pittsburgh they made it far, when he played for Calgary they were the second best team now edmonton is succeeding on every level. What is it about James Neal that makes teams succeed lmao every team that has him overachieves

Don't worry about the Oilers. They'll come back down to earth. They're still a shoe-in for one of the 5 worst teams in hockey.

Agree5 Disagree13

15 Oct 2019 11:44:17
Obviously the Oilers won’t sustain their current trend but pretty stupid to just dump them into “5 worst teams in hockey”, isn’t it? Dunce. They’ve surprised, they won’t sustain, but they’re not exactly striking it rich with bounces or anything. Hard fought games to get 2 points. Always from behind which is why they won’t keep this up but a more cohesive team than they’ve iced in years. So, yeah, great analysis joe. 🙄.

Agree16 Disagree4

17 Oct 2019 17:35:12
Nobody is claiming that the Oilers are going to stay on this level. Oilers fans firsthand know that they'll get down to earth.
