Now that the Pens have won - the truth has to be said.

- Gainey and Martin claim to follow the Red Wings model - it was clear last night it's choker and failure model. We should use the Penguins model instead.

- We should start drafting top players from the Q - how many were there one the Pens including Crosby ? Also we should try to draft more real Québecers like Fleury or Letang (Talbot deserves a paragraph for himself).

- Maxime Talbot. How could we pass such a great awesome clutch player? Grit, determination, great hands and he's one of us too ? A team with 4-5 Talbots would be Stanley Cup bound. Who did we get instead of him ?

- If we-re going to draft Russians, at least draft good ones like Malkin not lousy Kostytsyns, Grabovski's and Plekanec.

- Team ownership should belong to ex stars. There are plenty of ex Habs great names that would be willing to be our own Mario Lemieux. Think about Lafleur or Beliveau or Patrick Roy.

- Our young superstars should be asked to live with great ex players. Imagine Price living with Guy Lafleur who would treat him like a son and teach him the basic values needed to be a proud Hab player.

- We should try and have Balsilie offer to buy and move us too. This will bring Bettman to do his best so we get good players and favorable refs so that we can build us a fanbase. Worked for the Pens...

Are you serious?

The Pens won this year and the Red Wings last year...so why all of a sudden are the Wings crap???

The Wings have been a consistant top team in the NHL for what the past 10-15 years now and have 4 Cups to go with that.

What helped the Penguins?

A really bad 7-8 years where they had consistant top 5 NHL picks from Fleury, Crosby, Malkin, Staal and a solid core to help out.

Montreal has a solid core, we just haven't had the opportunity to draft in the top 5 all the time to build a winner....the Wings are the exception to that because Zetterberg, Datsyuk and others a late round gems that are stars with their core.

Look at the Canes and Lightning....same as the Pens.

If your crap for a long time you can draft well, next team to step up after being bad for a long time...Chicago.

The draft helps, but it helps if you have a top 5 pick year after year.

Unfortunately Lafleur can only afford to own a cheap restaurant in Rosemere.

I agree with Beliveau though, this guy should move his ass. Lazy bum.

Wings have 5 cups in 12 years + at least one final appearance. By the Penguins model, do you mean the "Tank and draft top 3 for three straight years" ????

- If we-re going to draft Russians, at least draft good ones like Malkin not lousy Kostytsyns, Grabovski's and Plekanec.

Yep, good old rusky Plekanec. How can we draft a "Malkin" when we never draft in the top 3?

- Team ownership should belong to ex stars. There are plenty of ex Habs great names that would be willing to be our own Mario Lemieux. Think about Lafleur or Beliveau or Patrick Roy.

Oh my god, what a disaster it would be if Lafleur owned the team. Mario most likely stays away from hockey operations and he isn't outdated since he played in the 2000s.

Only name that would make sense is Patrick Roy. He at least learned the ropes in the minors and will be ready to go in the Bigs soon.


- Our young superstars should be asked to live with great ex players. Imagine Price living with Guy Lafleur who would treat him like a son and teach him the basic values needed to be a proud Hab player.

Oh my god. This is hilarious. Lafleur couldn't even teach his own son good and decent values. What in the hell makes you think he could teach them to someone else's son?

You know - I'm taking names of those that missed the implied sarcasm. I had an earlier, softer version - but I pushed it a bit fearing people will miss the sarcasm.

Seems I did not push enough. The scary part is that people believing me means it is possible we see this kind of stuff for real.

I was hoping that claiming we should have drafted Croby, putting three non-Russian names in a Russian issue, making a Lafleur's son hint and the Balsilie stuff at the end would be enough. Wasn't.

Now that the model is in place, Gainey has to ensure that the team always sign every target on the ufa market regardless of the salary but make sure to put an OOPS I FU'd Clause so if the player doesn't meet the fans expectations in the first 90 days he can be cut loose with no cap ramifications.

Wings have 4 Cups in the last 12 years. How is that a choker model?

When we perenially pick around 15th how can we draft a Malkin?

No. Just no. Beliveau is the only one I would even remotely consider but I highly doubt he wants it.

LaFleur doesn't like any of our players and continually criticizes them right or wrong. How would having a player live with him help?

is this a joke? if so this is where I "got it" I see at least 3 laughable comments in here. 1. Balsillie should offer to buy & move them? His credibility is already shaky with the NHL this would lose it all for him. Why would he do that? 2. get favourable refs? they'd have to fire them all & hire all Montreal born & raised refs. 3. build a fanbase? are you imlying our fanbase is small?

This has to be a candidate for the all time worst post ever.

Look at where the Pens drafted their star players... #1 overall. It has nothing to do with where these guys played and everything do with the position the Pnes occupied at the entry draft.

Guy Lafleur nentoring Carey Price. That has to be the worst comment in the worst post of alll time. Lafleur couldn't even determine right from wrong in raising his own family. He should be as far away from the Canadiens as possible.


After those two comments, I didn't bother reading the rest,.

Lafleur could certainly teach Price how to smoke like a champion. I agree with everything.

Make that man the GM.

It has 2-3 good jokes, mainly the Lafleur treating Price like his son joke, but that's it.

Never forget that people like "habs" read this board so you have to make it more obvious than obvious with a " ".
