He fooled me tho. Tanguay played like a Little girl, scared of everything near a corner. Didn't show a lot of heart ....

and by the way Morris >>>>>>>>>>>Ward for them

He said he was playing well before getting hurt, and you point out how well he played at the beginning of the year ?

Yes, because having Brisebois, Boullion and Schneider as regulars in the lineup are much better than Spacek, Gill, Mara. Oh and the way Komisarek played last year, we were better off without him in the lineup, but yah sure.

Spacek was so horrible, yet he was Buffalo's number 1 d-man for how many years? Please.

Spacek will be excellent on the pp with Markov (just like Schneider-Souray-Streit)
but at 5 on 5 lolllllll good luck Carey

For Gill....ok move on

Mara very good 5 or 6 dman

but to say Ward is better then Morris.....please

and I'm not a Bruins fan by the way

I don't get it though, he came here trolling pretending to be a habs fan when in reality he was a bruins fans and now we're getting called out for calling him out? Didn't we just prevent further trolling?

Not an angry statement, just really curious.

I see your point Koseegin, but these are the rules on HF. It's not something I made up off the top of my head.

If you guys feel a poster is trolling, hit the report button. Why waste your time replying to someone who you feel is a troll?

You know who was the defenseman with the most turnovers last year??..Markov. The 2nd most, Green.
So, it's completely irrelevant. Offensive Dman can have a lot of turnovers, it's only normal considering they'll try plays and such.

So it means very little.

Gill, Mara, Spacek > Komi, Bouillon, Brisebois/Schneider.
Looking at the way they've been consistently improving, we can expect Markov and Gorges to be just as good but more likely even better considering Martin is now coach and will utilize a system that benefits his Dmen and Goalies.
We can also expect a bounce back season from Hamrlik and it'll be the first time since signing here that he won't have the extra pressure of carrying a young inexperienced partner.

I'm glad for Francis, he deserves it! Good luck to him if this is true.
If Boston signs Cube, who are they getting rid of. they are still 4.8 mm over the cap with Kessl and Bitz unsigned

Cap Geek says 2ish.

OT: Schneider signed for 2.75 mill ? Nevermind, seems to be his cap hit, with bonuses, or something.

1.5 + 1.25 in bonuses or something like that for him.

as for trolls.. feeding trolls is like rubber necking at an accident.. you know you shouldnt do it but theres a certain amount of curiosity and intrigue that goes into it.. "if i give the troll this much.. will they hang themselves with it?!? will they try to hang me??!?" etc etc..

at a cheap price the cube could be a good player for any team but how much of a cut would he take is where the problem lies (ie. if cube was earning like.. 800k which i believe is what breezer got last year then he'd great for any team but anywhere near the 1.5-2 mil mark and it makes for a rather expensive bottom pairing guy)

So adding 2 or so puts them 6.8 mm over. How long do they have to fix that?

Bouillon didn't sign with Boston (unless I missed something) and I don't think he will. They have 6 Dman under contract and I don't see any of them losing their spot to Bouillon. Not to mention, they're already close to cap. I used to think bonuses counted against the cap for youngters, but on nhlnumber and capgeek they don't do it that way. So I'm not as sure anymore considering these two sites gives Boston about 1M in cap room, whereas capcentral puts them at -4.8M.

Anyways, even without looking at the cap, him going to NYR made more sense because they actually have room for him on D unlike Boston.

I thought Bouillon was signed by the Rangers?

From Wikipedia:
Francis Bouillon (born October 17, 1975 in New York) is an American professional hockey defenseman. Bouillon was born to a Québécois mother and a Haitian father. He is currently an member of the Boston Bruins.

One of the posters here jokingly put on Olli Jokinen's Wikipedia page that he was traded to Montreal for Higgins, Plekanec, D'agostini, Halak and O'byrne or some package like that. I doubt that Wikipedia is a reliable source

The bandwagon jumping regarding players is pathetic.

When Cube was a Hab, he was great. Now he is not. Come on.

He was an honest player, who played beyond his size and skill permitted him, and we should thank him. Whatever job he gets n the NHL, we should be happy for him.

I don't think anyone has ever called him great. Good guy and I wish him the best but he`s still a fringe NHLer.

He never was...don't know where you got that from. Popular? Sure, great? not even close...though popularity and ability often get mixed together with Habs fans.

He was appreciated or loved, I would have agreed. Everybody liked him because he always gave it his all and wouldn't back out of any fight even though he's a midget.

Nobody ever said his skills were great, unless I missed it.

He was great the year post-lockout, but then he got injured. After that nothing remarkable beside when he was paired with Gorges in 2007/2008.
