Official Selling, Retooling, Rebuilding Only Thread
This is where all those who don't fit in the BELIEVE threads that have been popping up lately can congregate.

Captain Smurf 01-18-2012 08:53 PM

LOL, I was thinking of making this thread last night.

Chris G 01-18-2012 08:54 PM

Amazing Ty!

Patofqc 01-18-2012 08:54 PM

i guess this is where the logical people unite :handclap:

Whiskeyseven already made a thread for this I think, this looks more like a thread to troll.

Myron Gaines* 01-18-2012 08:58 PM

Thank you man.

That thread was also a defense of Gauthier, which many don't agree with.

I'm not trolling. I looked for a similar thread. If it's better to merge it, I'm sure the mods will take care of it.

JustAHabFan 01-18-2012 08:59 PM

Tank all the way.

That's clearly troll thread, can't understand how the mods haven't deleted it.

So what is the opposite of "I believe"?

"I live in reality" would be my choice

Bob Cole 01-18-2012 09:02 PM


Time to blow it all up.

TheBuriedHab 01-18-2012 09:03 PM

Sell hard. Pick one of Galchenyuk or Grigorenko in the draft. We will be better next year.

Goldthorpe 01-18-2012 09:04 PM

Here's how I see it:

We are, what, 1 month away from the trading deadline, so that's the team we have to make a decision. If I'm PG, I'm giving myself targets to hit, and I stick to them. At this point, the only reason why I would be confident in not becoming sellers is if the team starts shelling victories after victories - which isn't happening, and I don't really believe it will happen either.

So In my mind, we're seller come February 27th.

I wouldn't go for a completely retool, but I'm confident that guys like Gill and Moen could bring surprising returns if shopped extensively (I would target a 2nd for each). If I can make a deal for one of the big guys rumored to be available in the West, I certainly go for it. I would sacrifice a guy like Subban only in a package where I can bring back a top offensive player who is still young.

Not worth struggling to finish 10th or 9th. Dump all the UFAs for some reasonable picks. Let Timmons draft well. Tank it all the way. Also get rid of anyone who currently makes NHL level decisions--coach and GM specifically. BLOW IT THE **** UP.

MooseOllini 01-18-2012 09:06 PM

Can any1 brief me quickly on Forsberg? (the prospect not the god)

Aeneas 01-18-2012 09:08 PM

I love the habs, and would never want them to lose on purpose, but its realistic to think we will have a high draft pick, and have an opportunity to pick up some young players/ picks

Patofqc 01-18-2012 09:09 PM

Criticising mediocrity is not beeing a troll. For some people all habs players are saint that cannot be criticized

AcadiaAxeMan 01-18-2012 09:10 PM

Sadly, "selling" and through that "rebuilding". Tonight's effort was putrid!

I can see Campoli, Gill, Kaberle, Weber, Gomez, Moen, Kostitsyn leaving town (if any takers)

I am not ever thinking we 'Tank" as we "won't".

Price-Gorges-Subban-Emelin-Diaz-Plecks-Pacs-Cole-Bourque-Deharnais-Eller-White are "somewhat ""untouchable"""....let the dust settle over the next month - see where we are and make adjustments from there - we are sellers!

Go Habs Go!!

The Kremelin Wall* 01-18-2012 09:11 PM

Sell sell sell sell sell!

Move Gill, Campoli, Moen and Kostitsyn.

Let's get Timmins some good draft picks. Last time we missed the playoffs and sold players at the deadline, he drafted McD (top pairing D on best team in the league), Subban and Patches in a terrible draft. Lets see what he can do in a deep draft:).

Face81 01-18-2012 09:12 PM

I'm all in the tank wagon now!! :((((

Quarantesix 01-18-2012 09:13 PM

Trade for picks and good prospect.

Build around a young core and create a new identity .

Tanking, selling, retooling, rebuilding.........all of those will be pointless....................if Pierre Gauthier is in charge of it.

Pierre Gauthier is the reason why we are in need of tanking, selling retooling, rebuilding etc.

The D corp that we have is almost all compliments of Gauthier. He re-signed Gill and Markov. He brought in Diaz, Campoli and Kaberle.

Before we retool, Gauthier must get the **** out of Montreal. And Gainey must be relieved of all "consulting" duties.

If that doesnt happen, a retool is pointless. Gauthier is incapable of rebuilding a competitive team. His history shows reality.
